Your letters must be mailed to Letter Contest De
partment, American Maid Flour Mills, by De
cember 10, 1929. Use as many or as few words
von likp. Include a description of the New
American Maid bag.
THE NEW AMERICAN MAID POLICY
Briefly, we thought the housewife was entitled
to the protection of a DEFINITE grade mark
on floor. Knowing that the milling industry rec
ognizes that 65% SHORT patent is the highest
possibh point of flour per fection OBTAIN
ABLE, we decided to mark each sack of Ameri
can Maid with "GUARANTEED 65% SHORT
PATENT.** This statement really means that
ONLY 65% of the flour content of the wheat
grain is considered GOOD ENOUGH to be used
in producing American Maid. Yes, ONLY the
HEART of finest wheats can measure up to this.
Unless th« grade is printed on the bag, that qr.-1
itv does not HAVE TO be in it.
American Maid is printing the GRADE-mark on the hag—and
putting the highest possible quality in it—this is the housewife’s
protection—ask for AMERICAN MAID
