THE MAN BEHIND THE GUN has a pretty hard
time, and deserves a lot of credit; but how about the wo
man behind the washboard? She gets very small credit,

sins away on a washboard. Now, Mr. Man, don't you
create another picture like this. Write to Cox of Colum

which pays your widow the policy, together with every
dollar you have paid in should you die in twenty years.
