I kept Ned waiting at the church | ... because he's so wonderful! IT WAS DAD'S FAULT, really. I was all ready to leave for the church when he handed me a small package. "Ned asked me to give you this, Sally," he said, "at the last moment." The card was in Ned's handwriting. It read, "Let this be your 'something new,' darling. See you in church!" I did my best not to cry. And I don't think I would have cried if Dad hadn't been there. He must have seen the tears in my eyes be cause he said, "Go ahead and bawl, dear even if we are a minute or two late. A girl has a perfect right to cry a little when she gets a wonderful husband and a wonderful Hamilton Watch all on the same day!" Getting married? Give your beloved a fine Hamilton. The painstaking skill with which this fine American watch is made is your as surance that you are investing in the greatest watch value and the finest timekeeping accuracy. HOW MUCH DOES A PENCIL-MARK WEIGH? Hamilton has a chemical balance so sensitive that it will record the weight of a pencil-mark-one three millionth of an ounce! It's one of many incred ibly precise instruments and tools used to main tain high standards of timekeeping accuracy. Hamilton's experience building timepieces for railroad men and naviga tional timepieces for the armed forces assures greatest possible accuracy in every size and grade. Hamilton Watch Co., Dept.
