Let me say now, once and for all,
Don't Come To Coffin Capers! Stay
.iway if you value your life!
Go, shrink away from our morbid
melange in craven horror! We want
none of you! It is for your own good
that you stay away-it is for my good
if you come.
Allow me, my yellow-bellied friends,
to explain myself. My only interest
in you is as future corpses. How-
ever, I feel it only fair to give yoi
advance warning. If you go, you
;tand but a 50-50 chance' of return-
ing to the warmth of your fireside.
It is extremely likely that you will
spend theremainder of what would
normally be your life span, haunted,,
burning, never resting, in a place more
horrible than your meager human
minds can fathom.I
Spook Convention
The International Brotherhood of
Ghosts, Spooks and Banshees will
hold its convention simultaneously
with the Coffin Capers, on Friday
night, Dec. 6, and at the very same
place ! Alas, poor mortals, how I pity
you. You will remember this warn-
ing, perhaps, when your skin becomes
gangrenous and when. you receive a
fright that makes the ghastly shivers
run up and down your spine-when
you look into the great coffin in the

Don't Buy Tickets
STAY AWAY! Don't go near the

hot blood surging in your veins, if
you like to live, stay away else you
