The Indiana Department of Commerce and Public Relations does sell the State to residents and non-residents. This "selling," however, bears practically no resemblance to the antics of super high-powered press-agentry often commonly associated with anything having to do with the relatively new field of public relations. Moreover, this selling has two very definite aspects: seeing to it that Hoosiers become better boosters for their State by acquainting them with the interesting facts and assests of Indiana, and by presenting the opportunities and advantages of the State in such manner that its economic wealth will be increased through the attraction of new industries and tourist business.
