"The budge committee, under lLichard E. LanE, carefully examined audited reports of the various or- ganizations," Mr. Esfeld explained. "The money to be raised was appof tioned accordingly. "It was a difficult job," stated Mr. LanE, "to see that no organiza- tiun was slighted. With so many to be considered, each was given what we consider to be a fair proportion of the money raised. The entire executive committee of the Fund approved the budget, stating that it was by far the fairest allotment yet made."

"Propinquity is an important f'tc- tor in friendships and marriage. "The patterns of happy married life are laid in the homes in which we live as children.

The only magic it claims is the magic of the finest prize crop tobacco, brought to you as fresh as i left the cigarette machines. You see the House of Lorillard has been making fine tobacco products since George Washington's day. It's this skill, born of 178 years' experi- ence, that enables Lorillard to select, age and blend the world's kindliest tobacco leaf intoa mighty pleasing cigarette. But the Lorillard quality-insurance goes further. We put Old Golds in a weather-tight, double Cello- phane package that keeps out dampness, dryness and every other foe of your cigarette enjoyment. The outer Cellophane jacket opens at the bottom of thO pack; double sealing the top of the pack where the ordinary cigarette package is weak. But we'd rather let a trial package of Double-, Mellow Old Golds tell you the rest of the story. We believe you'll find that (1) Old Golds are genuinely of better tobacco quality, (2) are ALWAYS FRESH, (5) so smooth and mellow you can smoke them in any number without Cigarette Hang-Over. Sincerely, P., LORILLARD COMPANY, of fine tobacco products since 1760. TUNE IN on 01d Gold's Hollywood Sereenseoops/Tues. and Thurs. nkrhts, Columbia Network, Co' These were corlchlsions reach l)r.
