A Collection Hard to Match No one (except a collector) teeps an empty match book. This makes it easy to get all the covers you want from friends and relatives. Albums especially designed to hold match book covers are sold—but a 15-cent scrapbook does just as well. Marlene Spoolstra, of Chicago, says that she caretully removes the staples from each cover, and pastes it down flat on a scrapbook page. An interesting display to try for is a set of covers in assortec sizes. Covers vary from wee midgets about an inch wide up to the giants containing gian matches, sometimes used a greeting cards or souvenirs. A point to remember is this It is against the law, for safet r e a s 6 n s, to send matche through the mail. Never send filled cover. And do not kee filled covers in your scrapbook Make your collection "match less."
