BVENING LEDCHSB-PHILADBLPHIA'. TUESDAY. JUNE 22,
PHILADELPHIA TO GET
1916 "AD" CONFERENCE,
Campaign of Poor Richard
Club Has Swung Chicago
Convention to Favor
Quaker City for Next
Meeting, It Is Thought.
CHICAGO, 111., Juno 22,-Fhllndelphla'a
prospects for winning thft next annual
convention of the Associated Advertising
Llubs of tho World approached tho point
of a foregone conclusion today. Irving
Paschall, of Philadelphia, In charge of
exhibits, says, "There Isn't nny nrgument
about It. We'll get tho convention."
Mr. Paschall's optimism was buttressed
by admissions from advertising men from
other cities that "Philadelphia has sent
ft steam roller after tho convention, and
Is bound to get It." C. II, Durbln, of
Philadelphia, is credited with having In
stigated efficient work for his homo city
In an tinobtruslvo way.
There aro so many "Poor nichard"
medals on red ribbons hung around the
necks of delegates nnd bearing tho word
"Philadelphia" thnt to the uninitiated It
would appear that two-thirds of nil tho
advertising men present 'hall from tho
.?'' Pn'chall has earned tho title of
"Old Man Machlavelll" In his part of
tho campaign for bringing the conven
tion to his homo town. Delegates from
Cincinnati and Richmond, especially, aro
Inclined to think ho went a trlllo far
In featuring tho Philadelphia exhibit in
tho gold room of the Congress Hotel and
seeing to It that all attaches of the ex
hibit direct Msltors to Philadelphia's part
of the show, a silent argument for tho
location of tho next big meeting.
Tho convention today resolved Itself
Into a scoro of departmental meetings on
specialized subjects In advertising. Jo
soph II. Appcll, director of publicity for
tho John Wanamakor stores of Philadel
phia and Now York, delivered an epl
gramatlo address on honesty and common
senso In adortlslng.
"Advertising Is tho speech ot business,"
declared Mr. Appoll. "Advertising Is lo
business what language Is to man Us
modo of self expression. A business that
will not advertise Is both deaf and dumb.
"Advertising that Is saturated with
human Interest Is bound to be most widely
lead. Tho word "news," as printed In our
American nowspnpers, has como to mean
"human Interest." Stores must tell their
own news In a human Interest way.
"The only economic reason for adver
tising Is to mako moro clllcient tho dis
tribution of merchandise. Advertising,
when efficient, lowers tho cost of com
modities, because It becomes the million
tongued salesman, making possible tho
multlplo mcrchnnt, who reaches a million
people with less cost and less effort than
tho peddler or tho crossroads store could
reach ono or a dozen people,
"Retail advertising Is tho people's guldo
In their everyday living. Tho newspaper
Is tho natural medium for retnll advertis
ing and for all advertising. Newspapers
clrculato In tho densest centres of popu
lation, where nro also congregated tho
largest stores with tho greatest volume
of merchandise, so they arc, therefore,
the mot clllcient mediums for nil adver
tising." Tho Boston Pilgrims brought with them
to Chicago a forceful auxiliary of women
exponents of "purity In advertising," .i
commltteo ot tho Women's Publicity Club
of Boston, nn organization whose purposo
Is to sco to It that tho housewlfo Is edu
cated to tho wiles and ruse3 of unprinci
Louis Wiley, business manager of the
New York Times, led a discussion on
"The Effect of Advertising Censorship on
the Cash Drawer." Ho said:
"There nre many newspapers on n prof
itable basis which carry objcctlonablo
and fraudulent advertising. I know, how
ever, of a number of newspapers now on
tho rocks which were onco prosperous. I
attribute their undoing to lack of self
respect, lack of regard for their own rep
utations and heedlessness In printing un
reliable news and advertisements. An
honest, self-respecting newspaper has tho
most enduring success
"Thcro are few editors who will allow
a false dispatch or report In their Jour
nals. Why should a distinction ho drawn
with business news which affects the
purses of their readers? For the public
is prone to receive advertising ns It doci
news, nnd there Is a close relationship be
tween those happenings on tho social
sldo of llfo and tho garment a depart
ment store offers for sale. There Is a
dependence of one upon the other."
A national board of censorship of ad
vertising was proposed ns the first pro
gressive plan to bo launched by tho As
sociated Clubs. .Merle Sidcner, chairman
of the Vigilance Committee, outlined nt
a dozen Informal meetings tho proposat
that the organization employ n salaried
forco of lawyers, detectives, physicists,
chemists and other specialists to ex
amine all suspicious advertising and put
It to the test as a means of eliminating
fakes and exaggerations which were de
clared to bo unbelievably numerous.
"The Gospel of Optlmlam" was dis
cussed by Joseph H Finn, president of
thn Nichols. Finn Advertising Co. He em
phasized tho necessity for complete co
operation between the editorial and busi
ness departments of a newspaper. He
pointed out that advertising is nowa about
