Origin of the Sandwich
In order that he might not lose
time, the Earl of Sandwich, a
great gambler of the 18th cen
tury, had food brought to the
gambling tables. To do away
with eating utensils’, he had meat
placed between slices of bread.
Thus originated the sandwich. 4

Just for the sheer fun of it, step out
today and find out what’s set tongues
to talking about beer again.
When you see the grand old name
of Schlitz smiling back at you from a
smart new label —then you’ll know
what’s happened!
i
There’s now an even finer SCHLITZ, a
beer for those great occasions that call
for something special.
Taste it! You’ll find that Schlitz has
outdone Schlitz—in bringing you that
famous flavor in all its original freshness
—protected from the effect of air!
The air that attacks flavor and robs
beer of its zest never even gets in the
Schlitz bottle. By a special Schlitz
process, air is removed an instant be
fore the beer is poured in.
That’s why you get that tantalizing tang
and fresh, clean taste just as it comet
from the brewery!
It’s ready and waiting now... an en
tirely new taste experience. Come and
get it!
Then you’ll always have it on hand for
those Great Occasions that cafl for
celebration!
One Bottle Settles It
Once in a blue moon you meet a fellow who is your
friend five minutes after you first shake hands.
But it’s always that way with Schlitz. Drink
just one bottle and our guess is that you’ll
never ask for any other brand. Try it today.
Note the new cream, gold and brown label
on the famous brown bottle.
