No longer need you worry about the old button-smashing, wrinkle-pressing wringer. The latest EASY Washer has a better method—damp- drying.

Ve Revived that Mouth-Watering, Old-Time Peppermint Flavor You Remember as a Youngst To the Public: the man who developed the largest selling 5c candy bar in the world— Baby Ruth, So I think I know exactly what the sweet tooth of the nation wants. Fm an expert in flavors. I'm a crank on quality. I spare no cost to make whatever I make the finest that men know. In my Baby Ruth candy bar, for instance, I use $1 a pound candy ingredients in its making. Tremendous sales only enable me to sell it at 5c. Now I'm staking $1,000,000.00 on an idea . . . on an utterly NEW-TYPE of chewing gum, 0 As a favor to me, will you please try a package of Baby Ruth Gum today? I believe you'll find a real surprise in this different NEVWTYPE gum. This is why: S. E. Wheelock, Rock Falls Revived That Old-Time Peppermint Flavor I'm staking my money on the idea that what you want isREA-L PEPPERMINT FLAVOR in a gum— thit old-time peppermint flavor you remember as a kid. No othar guo».tQday has that flavor. It costs $6 a pound to get thaHdndtif peppermint flavor. So, in the rare instances it is usei chewing gum makers use it sparingly. I've gone to the other extrema And use it freely. To get the real thing, I have that pep* permint grown especially for me. I believe if you'll taste it, you'll never again go back to less full-flavored gums, That's why I'm staking $1,000,000.00 on it 3 Times Longer Lasting Flavor V That flavor is 3 times longer lasting. Thus ft keeps the breath sweet that much longer. It is, too, three times more beneficial on the digestion, doctors tell me. But those are serious things. The main idea is to taste this gum-—not for the way it acts on breath or digestion, but just for the fun of tasting again that Old-Tim© Peppermint Flavor. Ask for Baby Ruth Peppermint Gum. In the first store you pass. I believe you'll be glad you tried it O#o Y. Schnermg
