Newspaper Contests! Lobby | Ballyhoos!
| NO-FLIRTING CLUB |
Organize your plans so that a NO-FLIRTING CLUB is founded in your town about a week before the showing of “Naughty Flirt.”
To get the stunt across properly you must get your local newspapers behind you. Interest your editor in the idea that there is too much promiscuous flirting going on. Sell him on the idea that the newspapers should start a department to bring young boys and girls into friendly contact through the mails, with the newspaper as the clearing office. It is a great circulation builder for the paper and a big boost for your show.
Naturally a thought of this sort will mean front page publicity. Where you cash in is by having the club attend the opening night of the picture and then heartily endorsing it both as a club and as individuals. Use the following story to start the ball rolling:
DAILY TIMES SPONSORS NO-FLIRTING CLUB AS ANTIDOTE TO PROMISCUOUS PICKUPS
Picture, “Naughty Flirt’ Coming To The Rivoli Suggests Idea Behind New Movement. Has Civic Support ,
Starting tomorrow, The Daily Times brings: forth a new plank in its platform of needed reforms for Winona—rather strengthens an old one. It has long been the contention of this paper, borne out by facts, that there has been too much flirting on the main streets of our city. We do not wish to take the position of a Mrs. Grundy that flirting is absolutely wrong, but we do feel that there should be some sort of supervision.
And now, the film, “Naughty Flirt” coming to the Rivoli next week suggests an idea. This paper will sponsor a “Lonely Folks Department”—young people to meet through the mail—the paper serving as a clearing office. Socials and gatherings of all sorts will form a prominent part of this new organization and. every effort will be made to have all important civie bodies take an interest in this new movement.
Associations formed as a result of flirtations are, as a rule neither good nor permanent. It is the purpose of this new department to help form lasting friendships. Send in now a letter giving your name, address, age, tastes, likes and dislikes, interests and any other information about yourself. We will endeavor to match you with a person of similar type and temperament.
