Tab
Full color 9 1/2" x 13 1/2" ad for the 1 calorie soft drink from Coca-Cola. There is a large picture of a bottle of this product half empty and another picture of a day at the beach where two young boys sit with their parents. The one boy has leaned over and is whispering something to his mother and the headline wants us to believe that he is asking her "How can just 1 calorie taste so good?". The text identifies them as the Olmstead family of Newport, California and it claims that Mrs. Jackie Olmstead likes it because it helps keep she and her husband slimmer but the kids like it because it tastes so good.

White Rock Sparkling Water
Full color 9 1/2" x 13 1/2" ad for the Mixer that will give you a pleasant surprise. The ad has a large picture of a white coat and tie evening on the town. Several couples are sitting together at a table being served non-stop by a waiter. The caption under this picture says that you will "Taste the difference tonight..." and next to a picture of a couple riding bicycles is the caption "Feel the difference tomorrow". The ad text talks about how the mineral blend of this product that makes it taste better is also plesantly alkaline which will combat the morning-after acidity. Ah, the good-old-days of being able to claim anything and everything. This ad is larger than my scanner bed so the outer edges of the ad will not be visible in the scanned view.

Full color 9 1/2" x 13" ad for America's Finest Mixer. The ad has a series of cartoons that show Psyche, the symbol of White Rock walking in her half-dressed manner past a man identified as Prince Ali who is being interviewed by newspapermen. The prince notices this lady carrying a tray of White Rock and glasses and he asks "By the Beard of the Prophet - who's She?". The ad has him asking her, next morning which leads one to wonder what happened during the night, if she would share his throne. She has to say "No" because "until every American discovers White Rock my place is on the White Rock label".

White Rock
Full color 9 1/2" x 13 1/2" ad for their Sparkling Water. This ad has another storyline with Psyche-The Trademark of America's Finest Mixer. The headline has a magician demanding of a scantily-clad Psyche as she appears in his nightclub act, "How did YOU get in the act!". The trick he had been prepared to perform was his magic decanter trick where he "poured any drink you can name from this one magic decanter". Her response was to pour White Rock Sparkling Water into the drinks he was preparing and make them taste better. The last picture shows the magician talking to Psyche the next morning as he walks his rabbits and he asks her to join her act which she refuses but suggests that he use White Rock "for only a few cents more than ordinary mixers". I have often wondered what magic transpired between the picture showing them in the nightclub and the last picture showing them in the morning.
