Some still struggle with old-fashioned shaving accessories that try the patience and arc unsanitary and wasteful of time and money. Give that man a "DUO." Soldier or civilian, traveler or stay - at - home, every man needs the DUO LATHER BRUSH every man wants it. "What's a lather brush?" you say. There's just one kind and one only. It's made right here in Philadelphia. It's a combination of. a good brush with a good shaving cream Mennen's. The cream's in the brush ready for instant use. The bristles are set in rubber to make it long-lasting. A twist sends enough cream for a shave into the bristles. Then the air-tight valve shuts off the flow till the next shave. There's sanitation for you. Dip in water and lather there's speed. And the metal top, especially valuable for travelers, keeps the bristles free from germs and keeps the brush from wetting other con tents of the bag. 'A corking-good gift a useful gift for self-shaving men. Or, if "he" prefers a barber shop shave, tell him to take the brush to his barber. It's individual and sanitary. Remember, it's a "lather brush," not just a shaving brush. Department stores, drug, hardware, stationery and sporting goods stores can supply you. If your dealer docs not have it, send us $3.00 and his name, and wc will send you the brush direct. Used and sold at the barber shops of Hotels Adelphia, Bellevue Stratford, Ritz-Carlton, Vendig, Walton and Manufacturers' Club. Cream containers at your dealer's, or direct.
