If vou do not have a child elig

one of the entrants and support it
with Baby Coupons ? Look at the
list of stores in the Baby Derby s
double page ad. Baby entrants are
in this ad too. When you make"
any .purchase in any of these busi
ness places, you are entitled to one
Babv couoon for each W cents
scent. For instance, a $10 purchase
would entitle yo,u to 20 coupons.
Please ask for your coupons. When
you get these coupons you can
either turn them over to the-par
ents of the -baby you wish to sup
port or you can bring them to the
Baby Derby office, and place them
in the ballot box after you have
written the Baby s name on one ot
