Insist on Getting Your Soda in
Lily Paper Glasses
There's nothing quite so refreshing as a
cold glass of soda served in a clean LILY
Glass at your favorite soda fountain.
The proprietor very likely realizes that he couldn't
give ordinary glasses any more than a perfunctory
rinsing during the rush hours; That's why he serves
soda only in Lily Glasses.
A clean, new glass to every customer, without dan
ger of passing germs to any of them, is his policy.
Me knows the danger that lies in people drinking
after each other, even when glasses are washed and
rinsed. That's why he uses Lily Glasses at his
fountain.
Patronize the soda fountain proprietor who safe
guards your, health by using Lily Glasses. He is
your friend. l
Soda Fountain Proprietors
serve sodas in Lily Glasses be
cause they safeguard the health
of your patrons save you time
and money.
No washing:, drying, polishing
or breakage of glassware. Just fill
a Lily Glass with soda and you're
through. You can serve more
people in less time.
