"We asked the first six girls we met how they liked our newest idea

Tri-Tone Bath Sets

Well, here's how... and which... and why

P. S. Cannon ensemble sets are more than just ideas, of course. These towels, wash cloths and bath mats are real, and bring a very real thrill to any good housekeeper. They come in seven-piece sets, tied with ribbons and wrapped in sparkling Cellophane - costing from four to seven dollars. Extras may be bought separately. Cannon sets make gay gifts - for birthdays, linen showers, engagement parties and whenever. They have been cheered at first sight by experts, and stocked by smart stores all across the country. Start out now and get yours."
