Someone had to do all that work and they had to be paid for it. But, you can't get the best unless you pay the price. Raisins are just one of hundreds of. items that a baker must buy. Raisins alone won't affect the price , of his products. But when you use only the best of everything and pay top prices, that DOES mean that you can't cut down on prices unless you cut down on quality. When you buy Betsy. Ross products you know that you're getting quality products that cost more to make.- Betsy Ross White Bread, Raisin Bread, Rye, Graham, Doughnuts -- they're worth every cent they cost because there has been no skimping in their making' BAKING CO. was used at tlie GLOISE-GAZETTE COOKING SCHOOL -J UMU.IVU JLICUgor.
