Many of the babies have not yet
a subscription reported for them.
Just think of it! The parents of
these babies have them entered
to win of course. Yet they have
entirely overlooked the opportunity

We do not know if some of the

feel that way, for in this work you

We would like to see each baby

that any baby in the race oo:uld
be so Jacking in backers that not
a solitary person would help it
