"How well can you judge advertisements? Are you eccentric in sizing up ads? Does your sense of
work normally?" This is the
sort of problem on which you may
test yourself through the first at
tempt to develop a method for evalu
ating a person's ability to judge advertising, which is shown in the
vertising exhibition this week at the
university. "
The display is intended to bring
some of the latest attempts to
advertising in all fields to the
attention of merchants, printers, advertising men, and students of advertising, journalism, business writing,
commerce and applied art. It will be
open to the public each day this week
from 9 a. m. to 6 p. m., in room 204
Neville Hall at the university.
This is the first time that this material has been assembled and Dr. J.
B. Miner, who teaches the class in thr
phychology of advertising and selling,
has been collecting this work for th
past five years. It was augmented
this year by a large collection of the
latest improvements in direct mail
advertising gathered at the exhibition
of the International Association of
Direct Mail Advertising held in Chicago last fall. Over 200 booths occupying 70,000 square feet were there
included and Dr. Miner brought back
hundreds of booklets and mailing devices representing the cream of the
exhibits.
Newspaper advertising comes in for
special attention. The New York
Times' reproduction of its advertisement contest in which the same advertisement is presented in over 400
different styles of typography, is of
special interest. There are numerous
advertising campaigns in newspapers
and magazines, including the publicity
campaign of the Chamber of Commerce of the United States, a fountain pen campaign which increased
business 77 per cent in one year, the
bulletins of the periodical publishers
association describing successful campaigns, and a collection of advice summaries by some of the leading experts.
The latest novelty in duplicating is
fully described. It is in the form of
a machine for duplicating letters on
typewriters by utilizing the principle
'which punches
of the player-pian- o
holes in a roll of paper. In this manner typewriters may make personal
letters without mimeographing. There
are also new forms of printing in colors directly from the films.
Harvard
The reports of
awards under the Bok foundation for
the best work in advertising and in
advertising research are shown with
the display of the winning campaigns
and individual advertisements. Imwriting comes
proved business-lette- r
in for its share of attention.
Samples of published newspaper
advertisements, the layouts of which
were 'prepared by students in Doctor
Miner's classes, are displayed and
show winning advertisements in a series of annual contests. Besides numerous advertisements which appeared in the Lexington papers and The
Kernel, there are scores which have
appeared in other papers throughout
the state. The feature of the display
has been attractively assembled with
the material showing the conditions
of the conCests.
An extensive collection of books on
advertising and on selling will put
the visitor in touch with the latest
and most authoritative literature on
these subjects. The feature is especially rich in the presentation of research work. This includes the results
of the Research Bureau for Retail
Training now at the University of
Pittsburgh, which Doctor Miner assisted in organizing in 1918 and for
which he was the executive secretary
of
a number of years. The stores all
Pittsburgh have contributed in
nearly a million dollars to this Bureau
so that its work is now put on a permanent foundation.
The display of advertising and
house organs, "insti
tutional advertising" in the form of
booklets, and media for advertising is
nnit suptrestive. Then there are a
series of humorous advertisements
on advertising including
and take-off- s
the recent book "Old Sox on
which has aroused much
merriment at the advertising conventions.
A considerable part of the material
in the collection has been gathered
through the efforts of the National
Association of Teachers of Advertising of which Doctor Miner was one of
the original members.

chosen to deal with the accrediting of
state high schools.
The schools to be represented are:
University of Kentucky, Univer
sity of Louisville, Eastern State
Teachers College, Western State
Teachers College, Murray Teachers
College, Morehead Teachers College,
Nazareth College, Centre College, and
Berea College.

e,

Ber-gere- ,

The university in its report to
Sampson and the State Legislature, has asked for a total appropriation of $825,000, aside from that of
maintenance, President Frank L. McVey stated Saturday.
The report lays particular stress on
the requirements of the institution
for instruction, and the assembly was
te
requested to appropriate funds
for the erection of four new
buildings; an original unit for a. library; a teacher training school
building; an engineering laboratory,
and an agricultural building especially
adapted to dairying. In addition to
Ihese requirements the legislature
Tras also asked for equipment for the
lew McVey Hall, which is now under
:onstruction.
Dr. McVey stated that the university was asking only for immediate
needs. It also is in need of new dor
mitories, but no request has been
nade for funds to construct them.
Die other badly needed improvements
were not mentioned in the report, as
hey are not considered as imperative
"is those for instruction.
Library facilities ar" entirely inade- luate, and this may be considered as
the greatest of the four needs. The
present building will accommodate
neither the books it now has nor those
required for the various courses of
study. In considering the possibility
of the erection of a new structure
or the enlargement of the old, it has
been decided that it is best to strive
for the former. If the former were
granted the present building would
in all probability be turned into a mu
seum, of which the university has
long been in need. The estimate cost
of the main unit will be 250,000, and
the assembly has been requested to
submit this amount.
The second request is for $150,000
to be used for the erection of the projected teacher's training school. The
College of Education regards such a
structure as an absolute necessity.
The General Education Board of New
York City has promised the sum of
$150,000 to the university for thi3
education building if this sum is
matched by a like appropriation from
the legislature of Kentucky. It is
imperative that the state appropriate
$150,000 for this purpose so that the
university may avail itself of the general board's offer.
The third appropriation requested
is for a new building to house the engineering laboratory. It is of like ne
cessity.
Fourthly, a new structure is badly
needed by the College of Agriculture
for the purpose of accommodating
the students who are studying dairying. This will relieve the congestion
in the Experiment Station Headquarters, and will be a great aid to the
Kentucky farmers because of the more
efficient work which will obviously ensue. A suitable construction would
cost approximately $200,000.
The estimated cost of the new
equipment for McVey Hall is $25,000.
This request was made in addition to
the above report.
The required appropriations come
to a grand total of $825,000 and it is
necessary that they be received at
once in order that the university may
accommodate with more facility the
2,500 students now enrolled. Because
of the shortage of previous appropriations the institution is operating
under great handicaps and is seriously in need of more room for proper
instruction in the various educational
activities.
As has been stated, the above report of the requirements of the Uni
versity of Kentucky is a capital 'out
lay and is asked for in addition to
the regular funds given by the state.
At the hearing of the university's
