Serve the Bread
that’s Serving America
Do your part to keep our nation strong and
healthy—to help America Win! One of the best
ways that you can help achieve this objective is
to serve foods to your family that are high in
nutritional value. Belair’s Better Bread, enrich
ed by Vitamin 81, is an ideal choice as a health
preserver. This is the bread that America is
serving today, made with fine costly flour and
containing lots of food energy. Furthermore, it
is delicious and fresh and tender. It is an ideal
sandwich loaf and excellent When toasted. So
no matter What bread you are buying at present,
and no matter how much it costs, remember to
try finer-tasting and higher quality Bel'air’s
Better Bread.

'He- made his money fast—ruthlessly—in the “robber baron”
era of American business.
He could NOT have made it today—BECAUSE of adver
tising. -
The public-be-damned school of business faded with the
growth of advertising as you know it today—because adver
check up on—claims that no one would dare to make unless
they ARE FACTS. .
Everyone knows people who will boast and exaggerate when
talking to an uninformed audience.
But confront those" people with an authority—and they
become modest and honest. .
And that’s what advertising does—it brings the advertiser
face to face with the'authority—it blazons all claims not only
to you, but to the Federal Trade Commission and the expert.
That’s why advertised claims can be relied upon. 4
That’s why advertising ended the public-he-damned boys
and builds the public-he-served product.
Advertising wrote the epitaph for the man who said “The
Public be damned.”
