II. I.. Pomeroy ct ux, C. C. Scliar- f&Z Judged the equal of imported Pilsner Tho death of Governor Floyd B, Olson, who was supporting Roosevelt while running for the Senate on tho Farmer-Labor ticket In Minnesota, left a gap which tho leaders have yet to fill. Fundamental poll- cloB of the candidates account (or party difficulties In other states, such as Nebraska and Michigan. Somo Democratic organization leaders In Nebraska aro smarting yet from Representative Terry Carpenter's capture of the nomination. Senator Edward H. Burke resigned as national commltteeman, rather than support candidates whoso beliefs he does not share. Now It looks as though Senator Gcorgo Norris may run Independently after all, with the benediction of Uoosovelt managers. While Talmadge berates tho now deal In asking Georgia Democrats to send him to AVashlngton, Senator James Couzens Is standing for Republican rcnomlnatlon In Michigan as an. avowed administration supporter. Furthermore, ono of his closest friends, Representative Pron- tlss Brown, is contesting for tho Democratic nomination to oppose him. . Tho southern states in which such mix-ups have been settled for years at least by primary contests are Louisiana, Alabama, North Carolina, Texas, Mississippi, South Carolina, Arkansas, Virginia and Florida. In Delaware tho Republicans yesterday In stato convention renoml- nated Senator Daniel O. Hastings. Tho Democrats have yet to act. For a new taste thrill give Brown Derby the "Pilsner Test TTERE is how beer experts judge •*••*• a. true Pilsner. It's a test thousands have made of Brown Derby in recent weeks. Smell the foamy collar of the beer. Has it a rich and appetizing aroma? Does its deep, creamy collar last —due to tiny bubbles that keep rising from the bottom of the glass? Does it taste not quite sweet— not quite bitter- just at that pungent, refreshing in-between stage? Brown Derby scores high on all these Pilsner points. So high, in fact, experts say it is the equal of the imported. And you pay no duty on Brown Derby.
