A LOCAL BLINDFOLD TEST Since tests of various commodities by blindfold have now become popu- lar, we have one to suggest. Either board a bus or have a friend take you in his car out Westchester Avenue between White Plains and Port Chester. Somewhere along the route you will note that the paving ends and a rough, dirt road begins. This is where the contractors have torn up the former paving to allow for the new forty-foot wide, concrete, high ­ way. The test is not to ascertain where the paving ends and the dirt road starts — but to ascertain if you can live through the remainder of the un ­ paved portion of the road without tossing your head through the roof of the car or your arms through the windows. If there be in Westchester any an ­ tiquated taxpayer who does not be- liev e in good rdfcds.he should take this test. No sharper contrast be ­ tween the old and the new .can be given in the whole area of the county. The work of paving the highway is progressing reasonably well, in view of the bad weaker during April, with only five days of sunshine by rural dwellers in days gone by. Few of us who have not seen what Iodised like a tangled mass of wheels and horseflesh at the old fair grounds in White Plaius. » Parking places,always have been provided for the public, and we be ­ lieve they always will be in one form or another. If the automobile were a luxury and not a business and social neces ­ sity, we could agree that the com ­ munity is under no compulsion to pro ­ vide parking space when we drive down town to business or to the the ­ ater for pleasure. But being what it is. and generally owned, we see no discrimination-in favor of automobile owners when parking places are pro ­ vided at public expense. Unless municipalities recognize conditions as they are we will soon find many of our established business centers disintegrating and cobwebs gathering over doorways once busy with traffic. The woman shopper must be given an opportunity to park at some cen ­ tral point, for a reasonable period and without additional drain on her household budget. The failurfc of large communities to provide park ­ ing places has been the direct cause of scattering business all over the place, and every new business center developed takes trade from the older establishments. Forehanded business institutions with large capital are providing pri ­ vate parking places for their custom ­ ers. But it is not within the means of the small shop keeper or profes ­ sional man to do this. The community is under an obli ­ gation to aid business to tfie extent that what public opinion demands should be provided.

This is hardly a pleasing picture for Yonkers or Westchester. No mu ­ nicipality is to be congratulated on the appearance of eight-column headlines relating conflict on the dumping of its refuse. This problem is not new. For many years Yonkers has been seek ­ ing relief from the issue, finding temporary answers only in dumping here and there on vacant lands, hold ­ ing off neighbors who object Id the stench and smoke of bunting refuse, depreciating realty values, and con ­ stituting a general mess unworthy of a city the size of/Yonkers. . The suggestion has been made that Yonkers adopt the New York City method of taking the garbage and refuse to sea in scows and dump ­ ing far out. But this is expensive, and New Jersey has opposed the methods by which its beaches are lit ­ tered at high tide with New York ’ s scourings.

It is to the effect that a fleet of drivers be engaged who will, for a stated sum, drive home the cars of commuters when they arrive at the station in thc morn ­ ing and rctifrn thc cars to their own ­ ers at night. This might solve the problem of parking for commuters who wish to drive to and from thc station and whose car* will be otherwise idle all >,day. It will not solve the problem of parking in business districts. A legal authority, speaking at a Scaradale meeting, stated in so many words that the community was under no obligation to provide parking space for its commuters, and tech ­ nically the gentleman is right On the other hand, parking spaefe always has been'provided for those i . who use conveyances, whether they ! rode horse back, drove buggies or use* ' automobiles' as they do today.

New Jersey detectives, with one clew — the manufacturer ’ s number in a pair of shoes — available to them, got^ at the trutih of an apparent mys ­ tery, identified the victim of a mur ­ der and obtain h confession of Ihe crime. New York detectives, starting work som| trine after November 4, had at dn€ time and another such items iu iheir notebooks as a hotel, a cham ­ bermaid. a revolver, a chauffeur,., a safe deposit box, office records, a strong-arm man, -telephone calls, hotel registers and so on.

I ' The County Trust Company White Plains, N. Y. ADVERTISING FOR PROFIT . Br CORDON I! S OME people look upon CHECKERS as an utterly simple game, while others have thoughtfully 'declared it to be a profound STUDY. It is much the same with ADVERTIS ­ ING. There is nothing simpler to DO. but, like checkers, it is absolutely a game of skill. Check ­ ers is a game in which there is NO element ol chance. It is YOUR ability and foresight against those of your OPPONENT. In advertising, there are, also NO LUCKY CARDS. It is your ability, your enthusiasm, your courage, against the IN­ DIFFERENCE of the public. In fact, you have better than an even break, for whereas in check ­ ers, there is another mind FIGHTING yours, in advertising there is no offensive against you. You can win the game if you play your hand properly Ability you must have, and that means mostly the will and the determination and thb persis ­ tence to work. Good advertising does not come from flashing genius, but from the hardest kind of thinking. Enthusiasm is necessary* — Ypu are seeking to attract attention to what^ou arej doing and what you have to sell. If your enthusiasm lives, the advertisement will leapio life. If your enthusiasm flags, and you begin/to feel tempera- mental. SNAP OUT OF IT. It is just laziness. The right and only thing to d/> is WHIP up your enthusiasm then and there. You can do it and you have got to do it. Timb. tide and newspaper presses wait for no man. And have courage • COURAGE to do something differently, to tell your story straight out. To resist the conventions and limitations of ordinary - advertising, and to STEP OUT of ranks. Put your living, courage ­ ous, enthusiastic advertisement into a newspaper ’ of sound circulation, and you will get the answer. iCopj-right. 1929. by Unite a Feature Syndicate.
