Unless you're a hermit there's one problem you have to
face every day of the year - the problem of selling your-
self. Whether you realize it or not, with every person
you meet each day, new acquaintance or old, it's a matter
of selling yourself. One good way of doing a good job of
it is to be immaculately clean and the best way to be sure
of this is to let Ann Arbor laundries launder all wash-
able material; shirts, for instance, will be shades cleaner
when done by the Ann Arbor laundries. They've learned
too, that the student has special laundry demands, and
for just that reason they have set special prices on stu-
dent bundles - Prices you wiJI want to take advantage
of now!
