WHY THE SACLESS VACUMATIC -- with Ever-Visible Ink Supply -and 102% More of It WILL'TAKE YOU PLACES" INLEARNING AND EARNING t_ f-' And why the Youth of America will never again be Slowed Down by pens that run dry in the midst of their work! Youth, with its vigorous spirit, has been quick to lead the great procession of alert-brained people who are casting aside their old-type rubber sac pens and carrying this utterly new and basically different creation. Invented by a Scientist at the University of Wis consin, and developed by Parker, this revolutionary Vacumatic forever ends the last objection to a foun tain pen-ends having it run out of ink in the midst of your writing. It's the first sacless pen without pis ton pump, valves, or other parts that may fail later. And it's guaranteed mechanically perfect. Go to any stationer's, druggist's, jeweler's, or department store, and see how it fills by Vacuum. See the ink rush in and fill it,- 102 % more ink than held by a rubber sac pen of equal size. And write different ways with its All-Purpose Gold and Platinum Point - your regular hand with the lower side; also fine or hairline with the upper side, for notes and numerals. A gifted designer originated its non-breakable laminated barrel-built up ring upon ring of lumi nous Pearl and Jet, or Pearl and Transparent Amber that looks like Jet till held to the light. Then it lets you see the ink within - shows days ahead when the pen needs refilling. Save your old pen for sentiment, if you like, but make yourself-or someone else--a gift of the one pen the world always wanted but could not have until now.
