Dear Sir:

To you who ore about to purchase your first gem.
Previously I discussed 2 important qualifications you should consider when
selecting your jeweler. Namely, his "know-how" and integrity. Third, and equally important,
is experience.
It is common to have a young man say ''This is the first time I have given this
any thought.'' "I don't know what type of gem is best to buy." "I don't even know
what style ring will please her most."
These and many other questions your jeweler must be qualified to answer. Often
there is a desire on the part of the salesman to say ''anything" that will lead to a fast
and easy sale.
An experienced jeweler, who is intent on helping you make a wise seLection
of a fine diamond and ring mounting, will assist you with the objective to not only sell you,
but to do everything possible to make you a satisfied customer. He will advise you how
much to spend for the mounting as compared to the purchase value of the diamond.

Seek the counsel of a jeweler you trust, it is the key to making a successful purchase.

Last year a survey of leading colleges
throughout the country showed that
smokers ini those colleges preferred
a Luckies to any other cigarette.
- This year another nation-wide survey
- based on thousands of actual student
interviews, and representative of all
students in regular colleges-shows that
- Luckies lead again over all brands, regu-
lar or king size .. .and by a wide margin!
The No. 1 reason: Luckies taste better.
Smoking enjoyment is all a matter of
taste, and the fact of the matter is Luckies
taste better-for 2 reasons. L.S./M.F.T.
- -Lucky Strike means fine tobacco. And
Luckies are made better to taste better.
So, Be Happy-Go Lucky!
