is. the onlylMagazine
of its kind
This is why;
Three years ago Pearson decidedto
be a free magazine.
This is what it did:
ABANDONED FANCY COVERS
CUT OUT COLORED PICTURES
ADOPTED PLAIN PAPER
Tfiis was the purpose:
A plain form would enable the mag
azine to live on its 'income from sub
scriptions and monthly sales. It
would not have to consider the effect
on advertisers when it wanted to print
the truth about any public question.
This was the result:
Pearson's now prints the truth about
some question which affects your wel
fare in every issue. Tt prints facts
which no magazine that de
pends on advertising could
"afford ' ' td print.
And, with, all this, Pearsons still prints
as much fiction and entertainment
articles as other. .magazines. If you
want plain facts; instead of pretty
pictures buy a copy- on the news
stand for 15 cents; ot subscribe by
the year for $1. 50. .' , '
