My doctor told me to use Kellogg'a ALL-BRAN. Since then, my grocery , list has never been complete without it."—Mr. A. W. Murphy, 1010 16th St., Tuscaloosa, Alabama. This delicious cereal •will give you the same, sure relief. Laboratory tests prove it's safe. Within the body, its "bulk" absorbs moisture, forms a soft mass, gently cleanses the intestines. ALL-BRAN also furnishes vitamin B which tones the intestines, and iron for the blood. Just eat two tablespoonfuls daily. Serve as a cereal or cook into appetizing recipes. Isn't this natural food better than pills and drugs? "When you're at the grocery store today, get a package of Kellogg's ALL-BRAN. Try it a week, and see if you don't feel worlds better. Made and guaranteed by Kellogg in Battle Creek. Poulsen Holds Unique Position in Drama Field ll/TRS.
