Before the war the Hungarian capital—In area three times as large as the District of Columbia—had a mixed population of more than a million and a half, made up largely of Hungarians, Slavs, Germans and Jews. Predominantly Magyar, they are a proud and nery people, intensely patrintln, The Budapest of former years was one pf the most beautiful and light-hearted of European cities. Its wide, acacSa-bordered boulevards, rose -gardens and parks, flanked by fashionable hotels, its colorful parades and festivals attracted thousands of visitors. Then the city had a sparkling night life. In numerous Danube, coffee with shops fronting the their .colorful gypsy orchestras, thron?s gathered and life took on new zest. .The cafes o; Budapest became as famous a; those of o raris.

For years, Ward Week has been a tradition. Millions of American families have awaited its coming each Spring and Fali. Months ahead Montgomery Ward store managers in every part of the country planned together, bought together to make Ward Week a time of exceptional values. Then came the war . . . with its urgent call for materials and production. An event like Ward Week, with its huge assortments of civilian goods, seemed out of step with the nation's march towards victory. So, Ward Week was shelved . . . until now.

In every department of our store, you will find timely values. See them all but, » please, buy only the things you need and let your neighbors have their share.
