PM
Full color 9 1/2" x 13 1/2" ad that again shows two busboys working on delivering some PM Blended Whiskey. In this ad there is a younger man wearing a hat and he is taking a silver cookie tray, or something that looks like that, along while the other one, an older man without a hat, is carrying along with a bottle of PM De Luxe and several glasses. The ad text tells us that "For pleasant moments - PM's the Popular Mixer...it blends well with all your friends! Pour its satisfying mellowness quickly onto the waiting ice...add soda, gardenias and cheerios...and three's not a crowd, it's a party". The saying at the bottom of the page, right by the drawing of the bottle, claims that "If it isn't PM it isn't an evening".

Paul Jones
Three color 9 1/4" x 12" ad that introduces the world to Paul Jones Straight Whiskies. This ad has the same picture as the previous ad does, a soldier's profile, but the text is different. This ad has the headline that asks "See what a keen flavor a DRY whiskey gives your cocktails!". It then says that "It's easy to understand why Paul Jones is the favorite whiskey of men who like their cocktails keen-flavored and dry. For Paul Jones is truly dry whiskey - full-toned and robust, yet without even a hint of sweetness to its make-up. And its this brisk quality of dryness in Paul Jones - as in champagne and sherry - that has always appealed to knowing drinkers. In mixed drinks, or straight, you'll find that Paul Jones' dryness is one of the reasons why it has gained renown as "A Gentleman's Whiskey" since 1865".
