FRANKNESS OR TAPS? [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool News — 13 May 1937
FRANKNESS OR TAPS ? Enrifshmcn on Qualities in Advertising. I in Melbourne oh his way home to Eng land. Mr. Hartland-Skann was asked: 'Should advertising be brutally frank or should the advertiser content himself j with a series' of gentle taps?" His reply was that there were occasions when a I good hard knock was necessary to pro-1 duce results. Some of his firm's advertising, he add- , ed, had been called brutally frank, but' its success was its Justification. "The press ls still the principal adver- i tlsing medium," he continued. "If a j newspaper has a big service and circu lation, it ' means that the advice given ls sound and its news good and compre hensive. With such a paper it is logical1 to assume that the trade news columns will produce similar results to the ad vertiser. J "Australian newspapers are of a very high standard and compare. very favor ably with those published in England and America.

THE UNION JACK. ETIQUETTE OF DISPLAY. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool News — 13 May 1937
THE UNION JACK. ETIQUETTE OF DISPLAY. By O.E., In "S.M.H.") If past experience is to be taken as a guide, many union Jacks used in the Coronation decorations were upside down. ' There are comparatively few people in any British city who could paint out hi difference h tween the top and the hot'.csn of the flag-and Istill fewer who . could describe, off-hand, tte correct way1 to fly it from a mast. The Union Jack, as we know it to-day, was designed in 1801 when, legislative union with Ireland having been brought about, the Cross /of St. Patrick, a red ¡alare cn white field, was incorporated in.toe flag.. It was no easy matter to combine the national crosses of England, Scotland ard Deland in such a way that the distinctive features of each, as w Cl as the appropriate borderings,- wculd be clearly defined. The " difficulty was overcome by. making the'white 'on one si e Ot th'J. ted Irish cross much broader than on the. other . Undér this arrange ment , ach saltire stands out quite Cle...

Slr Mir Osman All Khan Bahadur, the other day began the celebration of the silver Jubilee of his reign. As head of thfc leading native State in India, he rules over a territory the size of France, with a population of more than 14.500,000. Hts celebrations had been postponed owing to mourning for King George V, whose stiver jubilee so nearly coincided with the Nizam's own. They will be on a lavish scale, bût not nearly so lavish as might be expected from the vast wealth of the Nizam and the revenues his State enjoys, says B.U.P. ( Much money which might have been soient on such spectacular things as ele phant processions will be devoted to per manent works of public utility and char itable objects. What the Nizam's personal wealth is probably he himself cannot tell. It ls believed that he has stored away at least £50,000.000 In go...

I "The inconvenience of this among thc better-off people (the poor havs always had to 'lump lt') led to the institution of rounds.. But lt was not the baker's bey who made them. "The rounds were made by women ! 'hucksters' (as they were called), who also had'to have a license. These'women blight Vie loaves from the baker and took them round. "It was poor trad;; but they trade a lütle money out oí lt because the baker was 'privileged' to give them 13 loaves and count them as 12-hence 'a Maker's dozen.' .'
