National Geographic : 1929 Oct
A story-book world. A kaleidoscope of Bazaars, camels, snake charmers, jugglers. The mystic chants; the swaying, praying Moors, Turks and Soudanese. The color, the odor, the gay costume; the strange primitive life of the Orient. You are held spell bound. Then to the site of the once-mighty City of Carthage. The crust of the great Amphitheatre where once were housed "300 War Elephants and 5000 Horses". Mediterranean Cruise Supreme from New York January 25th next The Homeric-one of the World's foremost ships - with 115 rooms connected with private baths the largest steamer to the Mediterranean-takes you to all the right places at the right time-14,000 miles-65 days. Casablanca, Palma-Majorca, Barcelona, Valetta, Larnaka, Nicosia and Ajaccio are newports added to an already wondrous itinerary. Two weeks in Egypt-the Holy Land; generous stay-over privi leges. Return is via England on the Majestic, Olympic or Homeric. Thos.

A good trunk is Art to us OUTWARDLY we are normal human beings. But put us in eyeshot of a trunk, and we go right off our heads. Show us a trunk shoddily made, and we feel out of sorts for a week. Show us one honestly con structed and built to work, and we make soft, purring noises. That's why we make Oshkosh Trunks unneces sarilystrong. It pleases us to know thatyourOshkosh will last longer than you expect it to. The corners, for instance, are constructed to stand incessant pounding. You will never find a cardboard bottom in a drawer. The walls of the trunk are built throughout of three layers of veneer and two layers of hard vulcanized fibre. We invite you to take advantage of these little idiosyncrasies of ours by buying an Oshkosh when you next buy luggage. Or write us (addressing 531 High Street, Oshkosh, Wisconsin) for a booklet that describes them. They cost very little more than ordinary trunks, yet they give so much more in service and satisfaction!
