Get The Call tomorrow and de cide for yourself whether or not the contest pictures are honestly drawn. THIS IS THE WAY TO WIN Clip picture No. 1 from The Call tomorrow, solve it, and write your solution on the coupon beneath the, picture. Then file the picture away. Do the same with picture No. 2 and with all the 77 pictures as they appear. Do not send in any pictures until all the 77 have appeared. Then send them ALL in together. This contest need not cost you one cent, if you get the pictures from The Call as they appear. Yet think of the remarkable awards The Call will give to those who come closest to naming the 77 correct book titles. No literary education whatever is required. In a simi lar contest, conducted some time ago in a large eastern city, a policeman, with only a primary education, won first prize, for he used his common sense in solving the pictures. THAT is all you need. Look at the object lesson picture to the left, and see how plain and clear it is. As the contest progresses we will explain in detail how YOU can win by using only your native shrewdness. Nothing more is re quired.
