I'm Going To School Too
I'M GOING TO HELP YOU GET GOOD GRADES
Now that it's time for school again, children need all the extra energy
they can get That's why they need Pet pasteurized milk to keep thejn
at the head of the class. Pet pasteurized milk not only buflds healthy,
bodies and strong bones, it also keeps little heads alert and bright. But
children drink Pet pasteurized milk for one big reason-it tastes .good.
They don't realize that pasteurized milk is their protector and that it
helps them when they're at school or home playing. Don't let your chd
ton get out of the habit of drinking Pet pasteurized milk. fdf
ps, too, milk does a grand job of perking up. Keep plenty of Pet pas
teurized milk on hand.
