( (By the Author of Rally Round the Flag, Boys!" and,
Barefoot Boy with Cheek.)
It is no disgrace to be poor. It is an error, but it Is no disgrace.
So if your purse is empty, do not skulk and brood and hide
your head in shame. Stand tall. Admit your poverty. Admit it
freely and frankly and all kinds of good things will happen to
you. Take, for instance, the case of Blossom Sigafoos.
Blossom, an impecunious freshman at an Eastern girls
college, was smart as a whip and round as a dumpling, and
scarcely a day went by when she didnt get invited to a party
weekend at one of the nearby mens schools. But Blossom never
accepted. She did not have the rail fare; she did not have the
clothes. Weekend after weekend, while her classmates went
frolicking, Blossom sat alone, saved from utter despair only by
her pack of Marlboros, for even an exchequer as slim as Blos Blossoms
soms Blossoms can afford the joys of Marlborojoys far beyond their
paltry price: rich, mellow tobaccos, lovingly cured and care carefully
fully carefully packed: a new improved filter that works like a charm.
Croesus himself could not buy a better cigarette!
However, Marlboros most passionate admirersamong
whose number I am paid to count myselfwould not claim
that Marlboro can entirely replace love and romance, and Blos Blossom
som Blossom grew steadily moroser.
Then one day came a phone call from an intelligent sopho sophomore
more sophomore named Tom OShanter at a nearby mens college. Blos Blossom,
som, Blossom, said Tom, 1 want you to come down next week for the
barley festival, and I wont take no for an answer.
No, said Blossom.
Foolish girl, said Tom gently. I know why you refuse me.
It is because you are poor, isnt it?
Yes, said Blossom.
I will send you a railroad ticket, said Tom. Also a small
salami in case you get hungry on the train.
But I have nothing to wear, said Blossom.
Tom replied, jl will send you one suit of cashmere, two
gowns of lace, three slacks of velvet, four shoes of calf, five socks
of nylon, and a partridge in a pear tree.
That is most kind, said Blossom, but I fear I cannot
dance and enjoy myself while back home my poor lame brother
Tiny Tim Kee abed
Send him to Mayo Brothers and put it on my tab, said
You are terribly decent, said Blossom, ,4 but I cannot oome
to your party because all the other girls at the party will be
from rich, distinguished families, and my father is but a humble
I will buy him Yoeemite, said Tom.
You have a great heart, said Bloshom. Hold the phono
while I ask our wise and kindly old Dean of Women whether it
is proper for me to accept all these gifts.
She went forthwith and asked the Dean of Women, and
the Dean of Women laid her wise and kindly old hand on
Blossoms cheek and said, Child, let not false [wide rob yon
of happiness. Accept these gifts from Tom.
Lord love you, Wise and Kindly, breathed Blossom, drop dropping
ping dropping grateful tears into the Deans reticule. I must run ami
tell Tom.
Yes, run, child, said the Dean, a smile wrinkling her wise
and kindly old eyes. And ask him has he got an older brother.

drafting an improved insurance

if approved, will go into effect the

The policy now being used has
