IT’S A CRIME to waste so much as a scrap of paper (Aug, 1945)

This, of course, took up a small corner of a page in the middle of a dozen page advertising section.

IT’S A CRIME to waste so much as a scrap of paper. Ten pounds of paper will make ten shell containers; ten pounds will make twenty blood plasma (have you given blood yet?) containers. Ten pounds of waste paper will furnish material for containers to hold 540 fifty-caliber tracer bullets. It’s important; turn in your waste paper today!

I can’t help but hear Bruce Willis’ voice when I see this ad.

Look who’s talking!

A tape recorder is your child’s first word. The very first. With all the hesitation, all the warmth, all the charm and all the sense of accomplishment captured exactly as it happened. Forever.

Chase & Sanborn Coffee: You hear a bigger whoosh. (Oct, 1955)

That is a really weird ampersand they use. The OCR software thought it was a £ and I can see why.

You hear a bigger whoosh.

You smell a fresher aroma.

You taste an extra richness.

Why? Because Chase & Sanborn “Dome Top” Coffee is fresher than any other leading brand. It’s the only one that’s pressure packed. And pressure packing preserves coffee freshness and flavor better than vacuum cans or bags.

“WHAT I WANT TO KNOW —before I buy furniture” (Mar, 1930)

“WHAT I WANT TO KNOW —before I buy furniture”

“I AM through with being sold furniture. Now I want to buy some.

“I am no expert, though I do know something about period styles and can tell a Queen Anne from a Sheraton at forty paces. But I want to know more about workmanship, more about materials, more about the value of furniture and not so much about its price and the ‘agreeable arrangements for deferred payment’.”

TIME TO STOP “JUST PLANNING” A TRIP TO HAWAII (May, 1934)

When I think of a vacation in Hawaii, tuxedos are not the first thing that comes to mind.

TIME TO STOP “JUST PLANNING” A TRIP TO HAWAII

Along with thousands of others, you may be planning to go to Hawaii some day. It would be only natural. This island paradise has won a permanent place in the affections of the world. Somehow it sums up rest, recreation, rejuvenation.

What may at first have seemed extravagant overstatement concerning these islands of eternal May has proved a matter of statistics. Even the most prose-minded visitors to Hawaii have grown lyrical in singing its praises and started others planning to go.
