(y ] , which we've gathered from all over
the world for this year's Christmas
trade is away beyond that of any pre
vious year. Of course, you'll do your holiday
shopping at Hechts'?everybody does. But our
word of advice to you is?do it early. You gain
nothing at all by putting it off, by waiting un
til the rush days. Remember that Christmas
shopping is now a pleasure?a couple of weeks
later everything will be in a whirl?and in the
last week 'twill be a rush and scramble. The
sooner the pleasant duty is over the better?
Z\l/\OU'LL find it extremely interesting?
)J especially the knowledge that there's a
S-* place in it for an account in your name,
and that your holiday purchases, no
matter how much or how little you buy, will
gladly be charged, if you wish, and you can
liquidate the bill in small amounts at specified
intervals after the holiday pressure lightens up.
Many hundreds are daily finding places in the
"Christmas Book." The big store is just
crowded with the spirit of Christmas, its stocks
fairly glisten with the beauty and charms of
Yuletide?with everything worthful that you
could ask for. Get your name on the Christ
