Twenty Cents out of every Dollar of the income of the people is the cost of government in the United States (Oct, 1932)

I think this is an ad against government spending, but honestly it’s so mild and informative that it’s hard to tell. Whereas today we have crazy ass ads like this one (video) from Herman Cain, who at one point in this election season was the Republican front runner.

Twenty Cents out of every Dollar of the income of the people is the cost of government in the United States

THE United States, your State, your City or your County must depend on taxation to pay its current expenses, to carry on its undertakings, to pay off its bonds.

Every one—rich or poor—bears a share in the tax burden.

60 days to the front…every scrap of paper is needed! (Aug, 1945)

60 days to the front…every scrap of paper is needed!

It takes about two months before your waste paper, reprocessed into cartons, arrives at the battle fronts carrying such essentials as blood plasma, rations or ammunition to our fighting men overseas. Turn in your old paper regularly. Never burn it! It’s needed! When waste paper is sold, many organizations channel some of the funds to help wounded veterans by providing the little extras which mean so much during convalescence…or to support other worthy community projects.

Separate and tie in bundles: 1. Wastebasket scraps. 2. Corrugated boxes, brown paper and bags. 3. Magazines and books. 4. Newspapers.

FIAT (Oct, 1961)

While it looks like a stereogram, I can assure you that staring at that logo will not make a sailboat appear. Of course, there never was a sailboat to begin with.

FIAT

The name FIAT requires no introduction wherever great commerce and trade go on in the world. Since 1899, it has steadily gained eminence as a symbol of engineering excellence and integrity on all continents and in most nations.

YOU HAVE A BEAUTIFUL FACE BUT YOUR NOSE? (Oct, 1921)

YOU HAVE A BEAUTIFUL FACE BUT YOUR NOSE?

IN THIS DAY AND AGE attention to your appearance is an absolute necessity if you expect to make the most out of life. Not only should you wish to appear as attractive as possible for your own self-satisfaction, which is alone well worth your efforts, but you will find the world in general judging you greatly, if not wholly, by your “looks,” therefore it pays to “look your best” at all times.

A NEW TWIST IN TELEPHONY (Oct, 1953)

A NEW TWIST IN TELEPHONY

For years the accepted way to connect wires to telephone apparatus was with solder. Now, Bell Laboratories engineers have discovered how to make connections faster and better—without solder.

Solder, they reasoned, wouldn’t be needed if wire and terminal could be kept tightly pressed together. But, for economy, this had to be done with the wire alone—without complicating screws and springs.
