Money; 1
hat" May Be Youra!
Business men, farmers, clerks, hired hands,
society matrons, "flappers," school children and school teachers all
are evincing a great interest in the Intelligence Questionnaire con
test Folks who have nearly forgotten how to think have dusted out
, the old brain-pan and entered The Bee's contest
Ordinary intelligence is the only qualifica
tion required. You don't have to spend any money or much time. All
entries are treated the same. You have as good a chance as anyone
else to succeed.
Picture to yourself what you could do should
you win the First Royal Award! Clothes, education, travel, music
the world's interesting hobbies could be yours. Are you willing to
test your brains against others for the sake of these things? Are you
able to get out of the rut and really do some concentrated studying,
to apply yourself diligently?
Interesting? Well, it surely is! Just look
those questions over. They cover many spheres of endeavor. Many
of the things you take for granted are not so easy after all you'll
really have to think. We repeat all have an equal chance A day
laborer sent in a fine set of answers, yet one of the smartest men in
Omaha sent in an incomplete reply. A school girl out in the state
sent in a very credible response, yet a professional man, a physician,
sent in his questionnaire with some absolutely ridiculous answers.
