AMERICAN WHISKEY-A BLEND • 86 PROOF • ©1972 CALVERT OIST. CO., LOUISVILLE, KY. You're looking at all the soft whiskies in the world crowded into one photograph. Back in 1963 we introduced America to something new. Soft whiskey. In all this time no one has come close to matching that one-of-a-kind taste. They may be trying, of course. But that means spending years in doing experiments by the thousands. And spending dollars by the millions. Even then there's no guarantee of success. If you want a soft whiskey you have a choice.

Paul Warfield, chairman of the local campaign, presented the workers with fund-raising packets and informational material about the college's program and financial status.

"We have such an important and viable industry here — Monmouth College. The college needs our annual support and encouragement." Included in the information to be used by the volunteer workers was the fact that Monmouth College pays $2- mUlion in salaries to its 218 employes and $458,000 to local vendors and that $1.5-million is spent annually by students, parents and visitors. The college also contributed $75,000 in $1,000 scholarships to local students this past year. And while the college personnel comprise only 2.5 per cent of the total population, it paid $100,000 or almost 10 per cent of the total Monmouth property tax.
