Decorators beautifying local church
The congregation of the Baptist Church is having the interior of the church proper and the Sunday school department on the first floor decorated by experts of the Radcliff Co. of Toledo. Work has been completed in the auditorium but the room will not be used tomorrow for services. The decorating of the Sunday school room will be done next week. The ground color scheme of the painting work in the auditorium is ivory and the general effects are highly restful and satisfying.

An ad promoting the content of the Reflector-Herald read as follows:
Whenever you find an item about someone you used to know, or see the picture of a once-familiar place, there's an extra thrill in the news of the day. Fading memories grow bright ... in a flash you begin to "remember when -"
Actually every newspaper you read is full of good news about friends of yours ... friends that come into your home every day to help get the work done .. friends you take with you when you go out ... friends that make life easier, brighter, richer.
These friends are the foods, the clothes, the furnishings the many modern comforts you meet in the advertisements. You know them well ... know how they look and what they can do. Naturally you like to read all the news about them, for even old friends are constantly changing, growing more interesting, offering new ideas.
Advertisements bring you fresh and reliable news of things you could hardly do without. Form the good habit of reading them thoroughly every day. Watch them for news of your friends old and new.
