DECK THE HALLS
The days grow short, the nights grow long, the north wind
doth blow, and a light frost appears on the knees of coeds.
Christmas is icumen in, and once more our keen young
minds turn to the vexing problem of Christmas gifts.
Let us examine first the most vexing of all gift problems:
What do you buy for the person who has everything? Well
iir, when you encounter this dilemma, the best thing to
do is seize it by the horns. Ask yourself this question: Does
he truly have everything? Does he, for example, have a
birthmark? A Mach number? A lacrosse net? An I-beam?
An S-hook? A U-bolt? A T-square? A Primus stove?
(There is, incidentally, quite an interesting little story
about how Primus came to invent the stove. Before Primus*
invention, cooking was rather a hazardous occupation.
People just built fires any old placethe floor, the closet,
the escritoireand often as not the whole house would go
up in flames along with the dinner. Primus, a goose
plucker of Frankfurt-am-Main, kept thinking there must
be a more efficient way to cook. Finally, in a flash of in inspiration,
spiration, inspiration, it came to him: Why not build a device to contain
the fire and keep it from spreading?
\ T Jf V f \
Jui ttititek to!? irt kHJm it out of foper.*-
(Well sir, he built precisely such a device and named it
after his beloved wife Stove. Primuss first Stove, it must
be confessed, was less than a triumph; his mistake was in
building it out of paper. The next Stove, built of wood,
fared hardly better. Not until he made one out of metal
could the Stove really be called a success.
(But even then the Stove was not entirely satisfactory.
The trouble was that the Stove filled up with ashes and
became useless after a few weeks. It remained for Primuss
eon Frederick to conquer that problem. He invented a
mechanism to remove ashes fi jm th3 bottom of the Stove
and was thenceforth known to posterity as Frederick the
But I digress. We were discussing Christmas gifts. This
year, as every year, a popular gift is the smoking jacket.
And what do the smoking jackets smoke? Why, Marlboro,
of courseevery man jacket of them. And why wouldnt
they smoke Marlboroe? Why wouldnt anybody with a
taste bud in his head? You get such a lot to like in a Marl Marlborofilter
borofilter Marlborofilter ... flavor... flip-top box.
Here is no filter to hollow the cheeks and bug the eye eyeballs;
balls; eyeballs; here is a filter that draws nice and easy. Here is no
flavor to pale and pall; here is a flavor ever fresh, ever
sectful. Here is no flimsy pack to crumble and shred its
precious cargo; here is a sturdy box that keeps each ciga cigarette
rette cigarette plump and pristine.
Speaking of smoking, the years most unusual gift item
is a brand-new cigarette lighter that never needs refilling.
You are scoffing. You are saying you have heard such claims
before. But its true, I promise you. This new lighter
never, never needs refilling! The fuel supply lasts forever.
Os course, there are certain disadvantages. For one
thing, the lighter is rather bulkyl7o feet long and three v

What Makes R>p Com Pop?
Popping corn contains wster. When the water gets hot enough,
the kernel explodes. Result: popcorn.

You see, popcorn makes most people thirsty.
Fortunately, when most people get thirsty
they hanker for the gopd taste of Coca-Cola.
