The Best of Everything

"SILLY STANDARDIZED coun-
try—America," grumbled a dis-
tinguished English advertising man
recently as he completed a U. S.
lecture tour, his pockets bulging
with silly standardized American
dollars . . . "Your cities look so
much alike, I had to consult my
itinerary to see whether I was in
Milwaukee, Sioux City or Spokane
... Same hotels, same stores, same
signs." . . . Same signs my eye!

individualistic merchants who
would rather be caught dead than
hang a conventional sign outside
their place of business . . . They'll
stew for weeks thinking of a new
twist—and one in a hundred is
worth the effort! . . . For instance
. . . Outside a Phoenix auto-repair
shop: "May we have the next
dents?" and "Second-hand cars in
first-crash condition." . . . A Dallas
dealer has a more subtle approach:
"Be a wealthy pedestrian. Sell us
your car!" ... The shop next door
displays clothes for debutantes, fea-
turing "Convertible sun dresses.
Very sporty with the tops down."
. . . Offered by a drygoods empo-
rium in Allentown, Pennsylvania:
"Bath towels for the whole damp
family .. -.By a chicken incubator
in Vermont: "Cheepers by the doz-
en." . . . A furrier in Kalamazoo
begs "Be our miss in lynx," and
an alert fortune teller in Asbury
Park promises: "Your problem
solved, or your mania cheerfully
refunded." . . . Owners of restaur-
ants and grogshops are in the fore-
front when the whims blow . . . A
tavern keeper in Lexington ad-
vises: "If you drive your husband
to drink, drive him here." . . . A
sign on the wall of a diner along
Route 101: "What foods these
morsels be!" . . . And a Broadway
delicatessen advertises: "Today
only! Homemade imported caviar.'
Another sign inside the store
warns "If you don't smell it, we
ain't got it!"

Detroit Symphony and pianist

kenazy and the symphony will per-
