`GOOD LUCK"with HERRING!

Here's the most taste-tempting way to wish your holiday guests
good luck for the year ahead. Just serve Vita Herring. Custom has it that
a bite of herring at holiday time brings good luck during the coming year.
Of course, no one stops with just one bite, so it is a good idea to have
extra jars of Vita Herring on hand for the year-end
holidays. Look for Vita Herring in your food store
dairy case—and good luck for the coming year!

so easy to serve
