At one minute before the appoint ed hour the attendant closed the doors. As he did so he ,\ took notice that all the chairs were occupied. fL \ The spacious room and its furnishings reflected the dig S^ nity of the building. A long table centered the setting. SHere sat a steel king. At his right a Prince of the Church. V Next an ex-Secretary of State. Three lawyers of international Same. Two former Justices of the Supreme Court. And a S4A group of financiers whose names make Wall Street pause. ---........ The meeting had been called for 4 o'clock. At 4 o'clock the meeting began. Every man was on time. Can you tell a successful man by the Time he carries? "Yes," says Dudley Nichols of the New York World. "Of 75 bank officials that I interviewed in New York City, 69 were within a scant half minute of exact time. Apparently a man bears something around with him, ticking away in his pocket, that blabs the truth about his success!" If you'll look at the watches of these time-minded men, you'll find many of them are Hamiltons. For there are no "ifs" about Hamilton accuracy. The two words belong together. "Hamilton" means "Accu racy," whether you want a pocket or a strap model, from $48 to $685. Send for our interesting booklet, "The Timekeeper," Hamilton Watch Co., 882.
