Madison Burglars Pass Up Millions
You Are One To Decide Whether
Or Not The Hudson or A Buick
Six Will Be Yours.
Plenty of Good Old-Fashioned Work Is
What Will Put The Winners “Over The Top”
Only Ten Days Of The 150,000 Extra
Vote Offer Left.
Yes, IT’S UP TO YOU whether ycu sit at the wheel of the luxur
ious Hudson Six or whether some other contestant has the honor. It’s
going to be your work that will put your hopes and dreams across the
line successfully.
I have heard people time and time again say that So and S o was
mighty lucky to have won this or done that successfully. But, right
down in your heart do you think that person was lucky or did he or she
work for the success achieved. Unless an uncle or grandfather or
st me other rich relative died and left a fortune or an oil well it is
usually work that gets the money and the big things of life not luck.
I know that a few of the contestants in this contest have entered
wiith Hie words, “I’ll try my luck.” If you are one of those, FORGET
LUCK RIGHT NOW. Luck’s not going to win fcr you, but, just plain
old-fashioned hard work will put you down on the list as the winner in
the greatest contest ever conducted by any Sauk County newspaper.
The Only People Who Get Rich Now Days Are Those Who Can
And Are Willing To Work.
’rhe days of finding gold mines are over hnd it is only once in a
while you run across a <hance to make a lot of money in a short time.
But even these once-in-a-whiles require work.
The contest affords a small fortune to someone, but as yet no one
has shown much pep and willingness to work for it. Put watch,
HUDSON LIKE A WHIRLWIND and it’s going to be some ambitious
h ’stling sort of a person who will realize the value of these last few
remaining days of large Extra Votes.
qualifications or ycu wouldn’t, have entered. WAKE UP, realize the
value of this Big 150,000 Extra Vote Offer before it’s gone. Every
hour, in fact, every moment of these few remaining Extra Vote Days
should be utilized with your best efforts in obtaining subscription pay
Ni w for the Autos!
Hop to it, contestants. There’s a lot at stake, but nothing to lose,
'there's all the pleasure, enjoyment and pride of a car waiting for you
here. But before you can claim either of these valuable prizes, you’ve
g' I to prove that you are a better man than the next felloAv.
Saturday, May 2nd, the end of the 150,000 Extra Vote Offer is com
ing all too fast. Anytime lost between now and the last day of the
First Period can never be regained, as far as the contest is concerned.
After May 2nd It will be too late for how-cculd-l-haves, or why-didn’t-I’s.
Now, is the time to tell yourself, “1 can and I will”. Put forth effort
row that will bo bound to assure you of victory.
i The Wt nderful Hudson Sedan is not all that is waiting for the
winner on the final day, but there is “success” in itself. Your com
munity is moslt likely alive with the whispering and cattering about
v(hu campaign. Everyone is expecting you (their champion) to be
the big success. Are you going to carry your campaign through to a
glorious and victorious ending? You bet you are.
’Beside the $1950 Hudson there are the two $1420.00 Buick Six
Coaghes and thousands cf dollars worth of other rewards to be won.
The size of your reward at the close will depend totally upon the amount
of work you have put in during (he contest. So, give her gas, folks.
There’s only ten days left cf the Big 150,000 Extra Vote Offer.
