TCH.TCH/ IT'S A GOOD 
THING TEDDIE DIDN'T 
SEE YOU WITH THIS 
HOLE IN yoUR 
TROUSERS/ 




L. 




Wolf ?oison \ 



There's one 100-proof way to guard your door 
against this fellow's visit. 

There's wolf poison in every U. S. Savings 
Bond you buy. There's sweet security, too— 
for your home, your family and yourself. 

U. S. Savings Bonds are 1(10% guaranteed 

by Uncle Sam. They pay you $4 for every $3 
you pui in. after 10 years. 

Think of this profitable saving in terms of 
future comiorts and luxuries. Think of the ad- 
vantages it will mean for your children as they 

grow up. 

Think. THINK. THINK, 

Then start saving right away— today! Start 
mtogwOomatically this sure, convenient way. 
I!" you work for wages or salary, enroll in the 
Payroll Savings Plan — the only installment 
buying plan. 

If you're not eligible for this plan— if you're 
in business but not on a payroll-ask your 
bank about the equally practical Bond-A- 
Month Plan. 

REMEMBER— U. S. Savings Bonds are 
poison to wolves!

ped back: "In liune and Hulyl"

Stop Worrying About Pimples, Blackheads 
and Other Externally Caused Skin Troubles 

Try Skin Doctor's Amazing Simple Directions 
and Be Thrilled with the Difference- 
Often So Much 

CLEARER IN JUST ONE SHORT WEEK 



Have you ever stopped to realize that the leading screen stars whom you admire, 
as well as the beautiful models who have lovely, soft white skin, were all born 
just tike you with a lovely smooth skin? 

The truth is that many girls and women do not give their skin a chance to show 
off the natural beauty that lies hidden underneath those externally caused pimples, 
blackheads and irritations. For almost anyone can have the natural, normal com- 
plexion which is in itself beauty. All you have to do iu follow a few amazingly 
simple rules. 



Many women shut themselves out of 
the thrills of life — dates, romance, 
popularity, social and business success 
—only because sheer neglect has robbed 
them of the good looks, poise and femi- 
nine self-assurance which could so eas- 
ily be theirs. Yes, everybody looks at 
your face. The beautiful complexion, 
which is yours for the asking, is like a 
permanent card of admission to all the 
good things of life that every woman 
craves. And it really can be yours— take- 
my word for it! —no matter how dis- 
couraged you may be this very minute 
about those externally caused skin 
miseries. 

medical science gives us the truth 
about a lovely skin. There ore small 
specks of du3t and dirt in the air all the 
time. When these get into the open 
pores in your skin, they can in time 
cause the pores to become larger and 
more susceptible to dirt particles, dust 
and infection. These open pores begin 
to form blackheads which become in- 



fected and bring you the humiliation 
of pimples, blackheads or other blem- 
ishes. When you neglect your skin by 
not giving it the necessary care, you 
leave yourself wide open to externally 
caused skin miseries. Yet proper atten- 
tion with the double Viderm treatment 
may mean the difference between en- 
joying the confidence a fine skin gives 
you or the embarrassment of an ugly, 
unbeautiful skin that makes you want 
to hide your face. 





The double Viderm treatment is a for- 
mula prescribed by a skin doctor with 
amazing success, and costs you only a 
few cents daily. This treatment con- 
sists of two jars. One contains Viderm 
Skin Cleanser, a jelly-like formula 
which penetrates and acts as an anti- 
septic upon your pores. After you use 
this special Viderm Skin Cleanser, you 
simply apply the Viderm Fortified 
Medicated Skin Cream. You rub this 
in, leaving an almost invisible protec- 
tive covering for the surface of your 
skin. 

This double treatment has worked 
wonders for so many cases of external 
skin troubles that it may help you, too 
— in iact, your money will be refunded 



if it doesn't. Use it for only ten days, 
You have everything to gain and noth- 
ing to lose. It is a guaranteed treat- 
ment. Enjoy it. Your dream of a clear, 
smooth complexion may come true In 
ten days or less. 

Use your double Viderm treatment 
every day until your skin is smoother 
and clearer. Then use it only once a 
week to remove stale make-up and dirt 
specks that infect your pores, as well as 
to aid in healing external irritations. 
Remember that when you help prevent 
blackheads, you also help to prevent 
externally caused skin miseries and 
pimples. 

Incidentally, while your two jars and 
the doctor's directions are on their way 
to you, be sure to wash your face as 
often as necessary. First use warm 
water, then cleanse with water as cold 
as you can stand it, in order to freshen, 
stimulate and help close your pores. 
After you receive everything, read your 
directions carefully. Then go right to it 
and Let these two fine formulas help 
your dreams of a beautiful skin come 
true. 

Just mail your name and address to 
Betty Memphis, care of the New York 
Skin Laboratory, 206 Division Street, 
Dept347, New York 2, N. Y. By return 
moil you will receive the doctor's direc- 
tions, and both jars, packed in a safety- 
sealed carton. On delivery, pay two 
dollars plus postage. If you wish, you 
can save the postage fee by mailing the 
two dollars with your letter. If you are 
in any way dissatisfied, your money 
will be cheerfully refunded. To give you 
an idea of how fully tested and proven 
the Viderm double treatment is, it may 
interest you to know that, up to this 
month, over two hundred and twelve 
thousand women have ordered it on 
my recommendation. If you could only 
see the thousands of happy, grateful 
letters that have come to me as a result, 
you would know the joy this simple 
treatment can bring. And, think of it!— 
the treatment must work for you, or it 
doesn't cost you a cent.
