"This Laminated Beauty is Rated by Students as the GRANDEST GRADUATION GIFT PENV w---Si/S g~lpj^e Its Visible Column of Ink, like the gas gauge on a motor car, shows when to refill-and it carries enough to write a 12,000-word book! A widespread inquiry among students was recently made by Ripley to aid friends and parents in selecting the Gift Pen that will gladden Youth the most. And he found an overwhelming preference for this revolu tionary Parker Vacumatic. One reason is that it eliminates 14 old-time pen parts, including the rubber ink sac - thus it holds 102 % more ink without increase in size ! Its laminated style is wholly smart and exclusive it is built up ring upon ring of shimmering Pearl and Jet, but the "Jet" becomes Transparent when held to the light, revealing the column of ink inside. This shows days ahead when it's running low-lets the user choose his own time to refill. Its Platinum, Gold, and Iridium ACTf Point is included at the regular price, Over-Size, $10; although 25 % more costly to make Pencil, $2.50 I than a year ago, due to the WRITESTwo wAYs higher prices of precious met als. It's as smooth as the bear- * da/ ing of a watch-doesn't scratch eo i a.t or drag, even under big-fisted f pressure. z But be careful-don't con fuse this sacless marvel with £'tefl it so-called vacuum fillers built lufS, with piston pumps and valves. WITHOUT ADJUSTMENT The great Parker Vacumatic contains none of these-nothing that will fail to stand up in service. That's why Parker guarantees it me chanically perfect! Stop at any good department, sta tionery, jewelry, or drug store, and see this miracle writer demon- ,ke r strated. The Parker Pen Company, II ~ Janesville, Wisconsin.
