Wallace Talks on
The Psychology of
Advertising to Club
"A woman goes into a store and
asks for a certain brand of oatmeal.
She does not even see the word 'oat
meal.' She merely gives the name of
the brand, and she gets it," said R.
B. Wallace, president of the Omaha
Ad club, in his talk at the club's
round table in the Commercial club
rooms last night. "A man walks into
the cigar store for a cigar, but he
does not say, 'Give me a cigar.' He
uses the name of a certain brand.
.Mr! . J - tl UlB .an? If mOQria
that the customers have absorbed
certain impressions, they may be sub
conscious impressions, but the will
acts thus sub-consciously in these
The speaker pointed out that adver
tising to be effective must get these
sub-consious impressions planted in
the minds' of the public. "Psychol
ogy: What Does It Mean in Ad
vertising?" was the subject of Mr.
He pointed out the ancient custom
of hanging out pictures before the
shops and taverns, instead of printing
the name of the shopkeeper or a
lot of information about his wares.
"Thus in Shakespear's time they had
the Boar's Head Tavern," he said,
"with a boar's head hanging over the
door. Another man named Cox kept
a shop in London and instead of
spelling out his name (for the people
couldn't read), he had a pair of fight
ing cocks carved out and had them
hung over the door. Thus the place
of the cocks or the place of the bear's
head came to stand for something
definite. It came to stand for the
place where choice drinks was served
or where the best sandwich of a cer
tain variety could be found."
He showed that these impressions
in the minds of the public can be
created only by constant advertising
Bureau Is Sought
A department of domestic relations
is contemplated by the Board of Pub
lic Welfare for next year.
The board held an executive meet
ing yesterday evening and discussed
the program for. the new year. Fur
ther consideration will be made next
Monday evening. It is expected the
, board will ask the council for $20,000
The needs of a domestic relations
department are appreciated by the
members and Superintendent Schrei
ber bajieves the work of the board
would be materially helped if this
branch should be added.
Several new investigators will be
engaged shortly after the first of the
Mayor Dahlman met with the board
and learned of the work which has
been done this year.

Sunday evening he left the C. W.

to reach there by auto. 'Williams'

South Siders Want Council to
Give Them Three Hundred
of New Lights.
TO APPEAR BEFORE DADS
Three hundred lights at least are
expected by South Siders, when the
city .council acts this morning on (he
apportionment of the 1,070 street
lights. Rumor had it yesterday that
all but 100 of the lights had already
been promised to different parts of the
north side, but this did not discour
age local boosters, who will be at the
council meeting in person.
West Q and West L street districts
are sections here most in need of
lights. There is a strong demand in
the southeast section of the city along
the highways leading to Mandan park
and farther north. It is figured that
thirty-five lamps will satisfy here.
Commissioner Parks will present
the request for recognition of the plea
of South Siders. He will be backed
by business men and property owners.
Chance for Recreation.;
Business men of the South Side will
have a last opportunity to join the
noon recration class now being or
ganized by . Iv. Herman of the
Young Men's Christian association.
The first meeting was held a week ago
but the attendance was so poor that
the organization meeting was post
poned. The gathering will be in the
gymnasium in the Temple hall at
Twenty-fifth and M streets.
A large beautiful banner artistically
stitched by students of the Society of
Children of Mary of St., Francis
church, was dedicated at special serv
