But it doesn't have to be. Not when you can give beautiful Caravelle* watches for as little as $10.95. The Caravelle line of Ladies' and Men's watches will completely change your ideas about watches. Because here, for $10.95, is' a watch that doesn't grind itself to pieces. It's a finely machined, precision, jeweled-lever watch that keeps accurate time. Time after time. You get a lot more than just another pretty face. In fact the most expensive Caravelle only costs $29.95. And it's a 17-jewel, self-winding, waterproof,* cal* endar watch. So make this Graduation a Caravelle Graduation. Wlttl all the money you'll save you'll be able to treat yourself to one too. CARAVEULE*divisionof BUIOVA, Co-chairman for Algona was Kathleen McEnroe.
