I was sure Camay would be
a v'DuderJnl soap tlie niiuute
I kuew Procter aud Gamble
made it. And then, from my
own complexion, I discov-
ered it was so mild that I was
convinced it nuist be the
ideal soap for even the most
delicate complexions!

To be sure my opinion was
rigiit, I consulted 73 of the
most eminent dermatologists
in America. These |)hysicians
examinetl Camay's chemical
analysis. They tested Caniaj's
effect on various kinds of
complexions. They used
Camay themselves. So did
their families.

As a result, Camay has the
unanimous approval of these
great scientists — something
no other complexion soap ever
received before!

Many of these physicians
went much further than a
formal approval. A ])rofessor
of dermatology in the largest
medical school west of the
Rockies says:

"I have purchased samples of
Camay in the local market ami
liave tried them out on my own
skin aud that of several members
of my family, all of whom have
sensitive skins. As a result of
these experiences I can state
that Camay Soap is a first class
toilet soap in every respect."

A Chicago authority says:

"Camay lathers freely. The
sensation produced by the lather-
ing process is one of blaiuhiess.
It cleanses efficiently witliout
leaving tlie skin feeling drawn."

AVill ynii try Camay? I
am sure, before you're two
weeks older, you'll begin to

realize, just as I did, that
there never was anything like
this fragrant new soap for
helping you keep your com-
plexion fresh and clear aud

hospitals and clinics. They

And this was their verdict :
"Camay is a pure and un-

No other complexion soap
in history was ever honored
with such scientific approval.

Many of the doctors added

If you neglect your gums
expect "PinkTootli Brush !

Ipana defeats gum troubles
while it cleans your teethe

THE modern praaice of oral hygiene and the present-
day conception of what a tooth paste should do, is far
different from what it used to be!

Ipana and massage are keeping hundreds of thousands of

families safe from gum disorders, free from dental worries.

Ipana is easy to use, refreshing in taste. With it your

teeth are spotlessly white. And your gums become sound

and firm, for Ipana tones and stimulates the gum tissue!

Watch "pink tooth brush"
and prevent it!

In spite of the progress made in dental care, many people
whose teeth are sound and white never give their gums a
thought. The danger lies in that fact.

Dentists remove good teeth in thousands of cases—
simply because thegums have grown weak, tender,inflamed.

No matter how perfect they are, teeth set in infected
gums are endangered. For "pink tooth brush" leads to
gingivitis, Vincent's disease . . . even the dreaded pyorrhea!

Soft foods are the trouble. Creamy sauces, delicious
salads, well-cooked meats. They appeal to jaded appetites
but they rob the gums of needed exercise.

But brushing your teeth and gums with Ipana sends the
fresh, clean blood speeding through the millions of tiny
gum cells! Wastes and poisons are carried off. Soon, the
gums are restored to health — to firmness— to vigor.

i housands of dentists urge the use of Ipana. It is scien-
tifically compounded to care for the gums while it cleans
the teeth. It contains ziratol, a hemostatic and antiseptic,
used by dentists in treating gum disorders at the chair.

So use Ipana. Insist on it. Even if your tooth brush
rarely shows a tinge of "pink", you need it. Ipana is well
worth a few cents more because of its double proteaion.

So send for the sample today, if you like — but stop at
your nearest druggist's and get a large-size tube as well
Beginning tonight, test Ipana for a month. Your teeth
will be whiter. Your gums will be healthier, firmer.
In this day of gum disorders, it's common sense
to use the tooth paste that insures proteaion.

IT looks as if the Barrymores might soon
have a little profile in their home. Dame
Rumor still insists that Dolores Costello
is expecting the stork.

ANOTHER Lon Chaney story is being
made without Chaney. "The Bugle
Sounds" was to have been his vehicle, but
his illness and his refusal to face the micro-
phone caused the film to be given to other
players. Now "Brother Officers" is to be
done with an all-star cast, Niblo directing.
It is still doubtful when Chaney will return
to work.

RENEE ADOREE is visiting her sister in
