If you have been reading this column—and I hope you have; 1
mess I genuinely hope so; 1 mean it does not profit me one
penny whether you read this columfe or not; I mean I am paid
every week by ttie makers of Mariboro Cigarette* and my
nnoiument i« not aSected in any way by the number of peopk
who read or fail to read this column—an act of generosity
perfectly charac1«ristic of the makens of Marlboro, you would
■ay if you knew them as I do; I mean here are ttobacconists gray
Kt the temples and full of honors who approach their art as
^gerly, as dewy-eyed as the youngest of practitioners; I mean
the purpose of the Marlboro makers is simply to put the best of
all possible filtera behind the best of all possible tobaccos and
ttien go, heads high, into the market place with their wares,
confident that the inborn sense of right and wrong, of good and
bad, of worthy and unworthy, which is the natural instinct of
every American, will result in a modest return to themselves
for their long hours and dedicated labors—not, let me hasten to
add, that money is of first importance to the makers of Marlboro;
all these simple men require is plain, wholesome food, plenty of
Marlboros, and the knowledge that they have scattered a bit of
sunshine into the lives of smokers everywhere; if, I say, you
have been reading this column, you may remember that last
week we started to discuss Christmas gifts.
I®* 'i»
i6irierded iviStrmhiihri?
We agreed, of course, to give cartons of Marlboro to all our
friends and also to as many total strangers as possible. Today
let us look into some other welcome gifts.
Do you know someone who is interested in American Mstoryf
If so, he will surely appreciate a statuette of Millard Fillmore
with a clock in the stomach. (Mr. Fillmore, incidentally, was
the only American president with a clock in the stomach.
James K. Polk had a stem-winder in his head, and William
Henry Harrison chimed the quarter-hour, but only Mr. Fillmore^
of all our chief executives, had a clock in the stomach. Franklin
Pierce had a sweep second hand and Zachary Taylor had
ieventeen jewels, but, I repeat, Mr. Fillmore and Mr. Fillmore
alone had a clock in the stomach. Some say Uiat Mr. Fillmora
was also the first president with power steering, but most
historians assign this distinction to Chester A. Arthur. How*
ever, it has been established beyotid doubt that Mr. Fiflmore
wot the first president with a thermostat. Small Wonder th^
called him Old Hickory!)
But i digress. To get back to welcome and unusuaV Christmas
gifts, herss’s one that’s sure to please—a gift certificate from th*
American Chiropractic Society. Accompanying each certdficat#
in thid irfnsdine little poem:
