This army of peace is going to help

club, if you like the more sociable

a peck; buy a barrel of them if you
can; "boost" apples, and you are a
member in good standing of the
"buy-a-peck-of-apples" club.

former governor of Massachusetts,
when in a public address he told of
the value of the apple, its use as a
food, and as medicine, its place in
history. Immediately the "buy-a-peck-of-apples"
army began mobil
