Michigan Day Set at World's Fair

Hundreds of Michigan's citizens,
prominent in the fields of industry,
labor, business, education and gov-
ernment, will invade New York
May 18 for a day-long program
celebrating Michigan Day in New
York and at the World's Fair to
sing the praises of the Wolverine
state. Governor George Romney
will head the delegation.
Michigan Day is the opening of
the annual Michigan Week cele-
bration which proclaims the things
which make Michigan a great
Michigan through its "day" in
New York intends to tell the na-
tion as a whole about Michigan's
industrial might, its financial sta-
bility, its 11,037 lakes, its count-
less miles of streams and forests,
and its longest shoreline of any
continental state, all of which help
to make it one of the nation's top
tourist attractions. Michigan, once
labelled a problem state, has solv-
ed its problems and today is now

one of the most attractive states
for new industry.
The Michigan delegation, corn-
ing by special planes, train and
car, will begin arriving in New
York May 15.
The Michigan Day program gets
off the pad at the Waldorf-Astoria
with an 8 a.m. breakfast on May
18, sponsored by New York area
alumni of Michigan State and
Wayne State Universities and the
University of Detroit.

Viceroy's got the Deep Weave Filter and the taste that's right!

Viceroy is scientifically made
to taste the way you'd like a
filter cigarette to taste.
Not too strong...not too light ...
Viceroy's got the taste that's right.


Smoke all seven filter brands
and you'll agree: some taste
too strong ... while others
taste too light. But Viceroy—
with the Deep-Weave Filter—
tastes the way you'd like a filter
cigarette to taste. That's right!
