NOTE:---Turn Subscriptions In as You Procure Them. A Record Is Kept By the Contest Manager to De
termine When You Have Turned In Enough to Complete a Club for the Extra Votes.
Votes will be issued on each subscription as soon as turned in, and when you have turned in enough to make up one of the clubs then the extra vote
ballot will be issued. All vote ballots issued on subscriptions may be held back if desired. Secure vote ballots for your subscriptions and then reserve the
ballots to vote later if you wish. That also applies to the extra ballots issued upon the clubs.
SECURE AS MANY CLUBS AS YOU CAN
A POSITIVE GUARANTEE:---It is absolutely guaranteed that the above offer is the biggest and best of any kind that will be made at any time

contest is conducted upon a plan whereby the greatest number of votes are offered at the start and gradually decreasing throughout the remainder of the
contest. (Contestants may clip this guarantee and hold it as our personal guarantee to them.)
