Your Wants smoothly attended to at the Atwater Hotel Barber Shop Billie Price, Proprietor L~r Avenue, Avalon, California wife and successor of the late Profes- sor Scripture of Columbia University, Mrs. Scripture has added publications of her own to those of her husband and has contributed materially to the valuable information available on this work. Mrs. Scripture is convinced that stuttering is essentially a problem for re-education, and for those far-sighted educators who realize the necessity for broadening their field of endeavor, and she will come to Los Angeles this sum- mer to conduct a class in Methods of Correction of Speech at the Summer Session of the State University from June 28th to August 9th. A class of children in the Demonstration School who have serious speech defects will be used as a laboratory for testing and applying the theories studied in the course. While appealing primarily to princi- pals and teachers whose work brings them in touch with those problems, the course is also of value to students and teachers of public speaking, since it outlines the scientific foundations of voice control in speech and the best methods of dealing with ineffietive speech, or any of the difficulties and disorders attendant upon articulation. Mrs. Scripture has had experience as a member of the staff of the Medical Council of the New York City Chil- dren's Hospital and School at Randall's Island, and her experiments have con- vinced her that the only successful way to deal with stuttering is by a thorough re-education of the emotion- al attitude toward speech. THE FINISHING TOUCH By Gee. E. Brewster When I am dead, I want no crowd To stand around, with bared heads bowed, With faces long, and voices low; No funeral bands, nor pomp, nor show. I want no Crepe hung on my door To make nay family sorrows more; I do not want my friends to weep, Or mourn for me--my last long sleep, I want a few old pals of mine, Who've been my friends thru rain shine, To lay off long enough that day To see me nicely laid away. and I want the Masons' service read, 'Tis good enough for all our dead I want BoB Walker there to sing A verse or two of anything. I want Jack Owens or Max Hayes, Or some old friend of bygone days, To tell the few who gather here I've tried to keep my record clear. Last of all, when this job's done, My bills all paid, my debtors none, I want my friends, and all who can, To think of me--A Four Square Man. The proposed football game between the University of California and the University of. Pennsylvania, to be held in the California stadium at Berkeley next New Year's Day, has received official sanc6on by the president of the California institution, \V. W. Camp- bell. Catalina will give you the rest of your life. Come to Catalina. WORTH SELLING IS WORTH TELLING--ADVERTISE !

By advertising you sell to several hundred people at one time instead of to the single individual. Advertising does not belong to the realm of magic. It is ability to talk of the product in plain, honest and straightforward terms that ap- peal to the reason and desires of the people whose trade is sought. How do you advertise? There are no end of ways in which you may advertise; there is the hill-board, the circular, the poster, the window display, the circular letter, the personal letter, hy word of mouth, and the newspaper, the best method of them all. "What does advertising do for you?--All advertising is in- tended to create good will for the product or service adver- tised. Your advertising should create good will for your store throughout your trading aera and thereby increase the volume of your business or your annual turn-over.
