Durene
Black and white 9 3/4" x 13 1/2" ad that says it is "Satisfying every way...Duerene-labeled cotton knits". There are three sets of photos of these clothing in action. The first one shows a young child standing up and investigating the contents of a lower drawer in the kitchen. The second shows a young lady standing in her dress and shirt with the cupboard in her right hand and the open door to the refrigerator in her left. The third, largest photo shows a young child sitting in his high-chair with his spoon in his right hand and holding it up for approval as the ice cream on the bottom of the spoon drips just a little bit more. The ad asks you to "Say firmly Durene in any infant's department and see what wonders you get in creepers, coveralls, polo shirts, underwear and socks. Durene is the combed, mercerized cotton yarn with a combination of virtues no ordinary cotton, no synthetic yarn, can touch. It's more absorbent, releases moisture faster. It has a delightful texture that washing only refreshes. It launders beautifully, refuses to sag or stretch, resists shrinking and wears supremely well. Luckily, you can find the same prize performance in knits for the whole family. Keep a sharp eye out for the name".

Nitey Nite
Full color 9 1/2" x 12" ad for their sleepers. The ad has a picture of three children getting ready for bed. The youngest boy is wearing a pink one-piece sleeper with feet and is standing on top of an ironing board that is collapsed on the floor. He holds a toy airplane in his hand and is looking back at the camera with a guilty expression on his face. His older sister is standing next to him wearing a yellow sleeper with feet and with red cuffs and a red collar. She has a telescope to her eye and is looking at her older brother while wearing a hat that is a yellow and red rocket ship. The older brother, while wearing a green two-piece sleeper, is standing on a table and pointing a ray gun toward some invisible monster while trying to balance a hat on his head that looks like the man-in-the-moon. The ad headline says "soft...fleecy...Nitey Nite sleepers costume your space-scouts for dreams" and the ad text describes in greater detail some of the quality features these products were famous for. Being a child myself at this time I cannot remember asking my parents for "some of those pajamas with the crazy hats that will prevent me from sleeping right". This ad is larger than my scanner bed so the outer edges of the ad will not be visible in the scanned view.
