Now Mas Cordelia Gumee cuts down stocking bills... try her easy 2-minute way! me "All my spare cash used to go for stockings. Sometimes I'd get • run, sometime* they'd go at the heel or toe. "One day a saleswoman suggested wash* ing stockings with Lux. 'It saves the etas- ticity of the silk so it stands a lot more strain, gives much better wear,' she said. I took her advice and, actually, my stocking bilk are half what they used to be. Stockings give me twice as good wear." PotM*- fi N ", New York City V^OU, TOO, can avoid needless stocking X runs and holes—save money on stockings. Simply wash stockings in Lux suds each night. Lux saves the elasticity of silk, so it gives instead of breaking under strain. This easy Lux way takes only 2 minutes. Try it tonight—every night! Mr*. R.

It U M pure—*o taildl saves MARY LOU GOES SHOPPING SHE is only eight, but, even at this tender age Mary Lou is a daily customer at the neighborhood stores. Perhaps it is a package of crackers, and a pound of coffee at the grocer's. Perhaps it is some tooth paste or toilet soap at the drug store. Discourse Mary Lou doesn't decide on what she is going to buy. Her mother wri,tes a list—this brand of crackers, this brand of coffee, this make of tooth paste, this kind of soap. She knows the prices, and gives Mary Lou just enough money, with an extra penny or two, perhaps, to spend for herself. Buying is just as simple and easy as that because of just one thing—Advertising. Advertising has given all of us a lot to be thankful for. Because of advertising, people in Texas know about and buy Michigan motor cars. People in New Hampshire buy oranges raised in Florida and California. Because of advertising, merchants and manufacturers are forced to improve their products. It has standardized quality. It has increased consumption and thereby lowered costs. It promotes competition and thereby keeps dealers and merchants wide awake to secure for you the most for your money. 10 But best of all it writes "Finis" on the business career of any merchant or manufacturer who attempts to fool the public or give them .less than' -value received.
