Here’s Where YOU
Advertising works two ways.
It pays the advertiser to "run" advertisements—and
it pays YOU to read them!
Why? Because that's the ONLY way you can keep
abreast of new trends and developments in the mer
chandise you're interested in. Because you can SAVE
time, effort and money by learning, through the adver
tisements, where to find the 'best buys" and the out
"Hit-or-miss shopping" is as old-fashioned as the tan
dem bicycle. The MODERN college shopper reads the
advertisements every day!
