THE NATIONAL Saturday, June 21st, to Saturday, June 28th The best retailers all over the United States have set aside this week to make a complete demonstration of Marx Made Trousers. They are garments of a national reputation with individual character in every pair that's why we think them worthy of this special consideration. Marx Made Trousers embody so many new and practical ideas in trouser construction that it's worth your while to do some investigating on your own hook. For example Take the "Wunder Waist Band,:' an exclusive feature to be found only on Marx Made Trousers. The "Wunder Waist Band" insures perfect fit at the hip it keeps your trousers from saSg'n8; at the waist it makes them hang,-perfectly, because it is a belt-holding device, made of one thickness of cloth on scientific principles. Marx Made Trousers are su perior, because they arc perfect and more desirable more are sold than any other make, that's why the manufacturers of Marx Made Trousers command first choice of trouser materials on the market. Remember the Date June 21st to June 28th. It's hot, to be sure, but you cciii't go without trousers, even if you do shed your coat and vest. More than a million men wear MARX MADE . .
