Odd Co-Branding (Grinders and Gum) (Jul, 1948)
We’ve all seen co-branding before, Dell and Intel, Burger King and Pepsi, Republicans and Fundamentalist Christians, etc. But Grinders and Wrigley’s Gum? Obvious isn’t it? I know that when I think grinders, I think gum.

Versatile New Grinder Saves Time â€” Improves Grinding Efficiency
A new grinder, the Corlett-Turner G-3, permits changing of grinding wheels in a matter of seconds and assures a true running wheel at all times. Each wheel is individually mounted on a ground, tapered arbor.
Easy wheel changing is accomplished by a slight wrist motion on the end bells of the grinder head. A twist to the left releases the wheel arbor; the reverse action instantly secures it in place. It’s all done in a matter of seconds. No costly time is lost in repeated wheel dressing.
In addition to its primary function, the G-3 grinder has innumerable uses for burring, buffing, polishing, and production applications requiring a high speed spindle. Powered by a 1/3 horsepower motor, a three-step pulley arrangement provides speeds of 5600, 8000 and 12,000 r.p.m.
Efficiency in precision work is also increased when tension is relieved by the act of chewing. And chewing Wrigley’s Spearmint is a pleasant, easy way to help relieve workers’ nervous tension. For these reasons Wrigley’s Spearmint Chewing Gum is being made available more and more by plant owners everywhere.

Weird Anti-Racism PSA (Aug, 1949)
I’m not sure I get the analogy here. I mean I appreciate the message they are trying to get across. However it seems that if he really didn’t want to plow that acre he could just use ddt or something and kill all those dang weeds. Which I guess represent black people, or jews. Or does the soil represent a minority and the weeds represent um… bad minorities? That want to infect the pristine, weed free majority?!?
Well at least the message in the second part is clear: Speak out whenever you hear someone say they are not going to plow a field. And don’t spread rumors about dirt that is different than what you are used to.
Weeds or Crops America?
The farmer looked at his untilled acre.
“Nope,” he said, “Won’t stick a plow in there. Don’t care if it is fertileâ€”I just don’t like the color of the soil.”
So the weeds grew rank and spread their seeds to his other acres, fouling his cotton and stunting his corn. And his harvest was poor.
There are some who would do the same for America. They would neglect the cultivation of the minds of young growing Americans. They would set them apart, deny them equal advantages …
