Extra Cigarettes (Aug, 1945)
Alas this wouldn’t work nearly as well with filter cigarettes.
INSTEAD of discarding those butts save them. You can make one extra cigarette out of every three, or nine from a whole pack! After cleaning ashtray (1) trim off burned ends of butts (2) and place three in a single sheet of cigarette paper (3). Roll as you would a roll-your-own (4). Photo No. 5 shows the saving from one pack—almost 50% extra smokes plus one final butt left over. It’s all right to throw this one away if you want to. This system doesn’t require the skill needed for conventional hand rolling.
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!
Machine Speeds Bottle Returns (May, 1960)
I personally prefer those machines that shred your cans, but none the less, an origination.
Machine Speeds Bottle Returns
At least one waiting line might be shortened if a supermarket installed this bottle-return machine in its parking lot. You’d slip bottles into sized openings. The machine would calculate the refund, issue a slip, and move the bottles inside on a belt.
