I :Newspapers Best Medium Reaching Working Women .More than twenty-two million working women, including 12,- 000,000 housewives-a majority of whom are in upper income families, represent to advertis- ers la huge new buying force that can best be reached thro- ugh the newspapers, states the Bureau of Advertising ANPA. The Bureau points out that the number of employed housewives was 33% greater in 1957 than in 1951. Besides working house- wives, the female labor force al- so includes approximately 5,- 000,OO0 women who are widow- ed, divorced or separated and more than 5,000,000 single worn on. In evaluating media that reached this market, the Bureau notes that surveys indicate working women, alternating be- tween office work and house- work, have little time for night- time television. And daytime TV naturally, misses the best major ity of the female labor force. Home Of Jams Ballenget Family flit By Floods In Stillwater, 0kla.
