Just
Say
Everybody knows Hires is good. It is made
that way. From every good and pure source
of Nature come the saps and flavors that
make this great American drink.
Sarsaparilla sassafras, hops,
wintergreen, birch and then
some every one good. More
than just good to the taste. It's
the most healthful of drinks
tones the blood and aids digestion.
Bat not a trace of drugs.
Hires just won't disagree with
you. But it will cool you off like
a breeze after a cooling storm.
Needless to say "rootbeer." Just
say " Hires."
