Black and white 9 1/2" x 13 1/2" ad for cups that never have to be washed, just thrown away. The ad has a picture of a pilot still wearing his flight helmet while holding a Dixie Cup in the metal holders that were always used at the Drug Stores and Ice Cream Stores. The pilot, as he holds up his cup, says "that PX girl couldn't handle the rush without Dixie Cups" and the ad explains that how when things are busy, it is nice is grab one after another.

Full color 9 1/2" x 12 1/2" ad for their Mira-Glaze Cups that were designed with steaming coffee in mind. To encourage you to buy and try this product they were offering a contest where you could win $5,000 Grand Prize with other smaller prizes. The ad has a picture of one of these cups filled with coffee next to a paper plate that has a roll of bills tied with a green ribbon. The headline says that you can "Win a cup of coffee and a roll!".

Full color 9 1/2" x 13" ad for several of the benefits you will reap by starting to use this product. There is a large picture of a double sink filled with an amazing amount of dirty glasses and the caption "You can dispense with all this". Below this are four smaller pictures of other things you can dispense with including children sick with colds, cut fingers and broken glasses. These things are problems of the past "When kids help themselves to Dixie Cups from this dispenser" and there is a picture of one to illustrate the point. This ad is larger than my scanner bed so the outer edges of the ad will not be visible in the scanned view.
