"You Keep Clean

One of the many beauties of using the O-Cedar Polish Mop is its cleanliness.

You no longer have to wear a dust cap or dusting apron.

The O-Cedar Polish Mop collects all the dust and holds it.

Then the mop is cleaned by washing and renewed with a few drops of O-Cedar Polish. Another step in cleanliness.

The new removable pad makes this easy and takes only a few minutes. Another exclusive O-Cedar feature.

The New - The Improved - The Better

O-Cedar Mop Polish

Two Sizes - $1.00 and $1.50

is practically two mops in one, for you can replace the polish pad with our especially treated pad for cleaning and dusting waxed surfaces or where a polish is not desired.

The long handle makes it easy to clean those hard-to-get-at-places.

Over 1.000.000 in use - all giving satisfaction - ask your neighbor.

Your Dealer Says: 'Try It at My Risk'

Simply deposit the price with your dealer. Try the O-Cedar Polish Mop for 2 days - put it to every test.

If not absolutely satisfactory, your money refunded without a question.

Sent, prepaid, upon receipt of price from either factory, if your dealer cannot supply you.

Use O-Cedar Polish
The O-Cedar Polish Way

Wet a Piece of Cloth - in water - cheese cloth is the best.

Wring it Dry - or until it is just slightly more than damp.

Pour on O-Cedar Polish - Until the cloth contains as much polish as it does water.

Go Over the Surface to be cleaned. Varnish absorbs O-Cedar but not water - the friction removes the dirt and dust - and the surface is cleaned.

Polish with a Dry Cloth
Slight rubbing will quickly produce the desired luster and finish.

The Beauty of the Grain is brought out - seeming blemishes disappear and the article looks like new.

A Hard, Dry Luster not gummy or wicky. A cambric handkerchief would not be soiled if placed on any article polished the O-Cedar Polish way.

Be sure you always get O-Cedar Polish

At all Dealers, Everywhere"

Tokalon pink cream, 1947

Scanned from Portuguese magazine Século Ilustrado, No. 484, April 12 1947.

"How my skin grew 10 years younger in 2 months

'Just two months ago, I had wrinkles and lines on my forehead, around my eyes and mouth...'

'Today all my friends admire my smooth, clean skin, my girl-like fair complexion.'

A new skin youth in 10 days.

Today every woman can have a clear, satiny, flawless skin, and a girl's skin's delicate freshness thanks to the discovery of this celebrated professor of medicine, who was able to capture in lice cells the precious mother-substance that makes new skin grow, forcing it so that dead skin's cells are renewed, day after day. This truly organic food acts upon skin as a youth elixir, and can be found exclusively (under the name of 'biocel') in the finest of skin creams, pink 'Tokalon.' Apply this beneficial food-cream to your face and neck five days a week before going to bed: 'biocel' is immediately absorbed by the skin's millions of pores, impregnating the epidermis's deepest layers during your sleep, so that when you wake up your skin is smoother, and softer than ever, literally glowing with freshness. After ten days the roughest or most withered skin begins to metamorphose. Test made by Dr. Stejskal at the University of Vienna's Hospital proved that the wrinkles of women from ages 55 to 71 disappeared after the sixth week. In order to beautify and rejuvenate your skin try 'Tokalon' pink cream. You may find other, more expensive creams, but none more active. That is why those who've used it before you, sooner or later have used it again. 'Tokalon' pink cream, the nightly food-cream."

"Wanted

For stealing kisses.
Outrageously beautiful female heavily armed with
Slickers

Yardley's quick-change lip-polish. Dzzles. Dims. Gives 5 new London Looks to lips and lipsticks.

Attention! Be on the lookout for a maddeningly marvelous quickchange artist. Description: is sometimes dazzling. Sometimes dim. Sometimes wild, sometimes mild. Scotland Yardley reports it's her Slickers that do it. Watch carefully for these lip disguises:

She slides a Slicker over her lipstick for a stunning gloss... a shimmer, a glimmer of glamour.

She slides a Slicker under her lipstick to soften... to mellow... to tone down color.

She slides a Slicker on alone for a natural moist glow that's madly flattering, anything but innocent.

Don't be fooled! She has five kinds of Slickers to change with - each in a madly striped London Look case.

Basicsliker - gives her a pale, clear moist look.

Frosted Slicker - puts shimmery moonlight on her lips.

Surf Slicker - flickers like sea foam.

Sunny Slicker - turns on a lemony gold glow.

Tan-Tan Slicker - warms and burnishes.

Please Note: This girl has never been caught with dry lips because Slickers protect them from everything but kisses, kisses, kisses.

Caution: She carries her ammunition in a secret liplighter

a small ingenious little case for kissing. One ends holds a Slicker...

the other end a London Look lipstick in one of 6 man-trapping colors:

Chelsea Pink, Pinkadilly, Dicey Peach, Poppycock, Nippy Beige, Peachering.

It's got a convenient little mouthsize, too. For sliding Slickers and lipstick on her pretty, pretty London Look lips. And for peeking in back of her (just to make sure that she's being followed).

Clue: She has an eye for a buy and got an extra Slicker free!

All she did was buy a Liplighter and she got an absolutely free Slicker. That's a $3.60 value for only $2.50. Usually the price of the Liplighter case alone.

Hop Tip: For a limited time only You can get the same great value. Just buy this charm of a Liplighter and the extra Slicker is yours - Free! Free! Free!

Confidential: Want to be wanted too? Get Slickers by Yardley at your nearest drug or department store. Then give up at once and get the

Reward.

Kisses! Kisses! Kisses!

Isn't it fun to be wanted?"
