Little Mary says:
A lot of folks really don't know how
much real pleasure is to be had from,
knowing one's mind is in good con
dition and able to answer the Bee's I. Q.
Fhe Intelligence Questionnaire
is a Real Brain
ISTORY proves that the ability to use his
head i$ the only thing that has ever improved
man's condition. Are you going to drag along,
satisfied to "hide your light'v uner a bushel, or
are you willing to let yourself be know as a person
of some intelligence-the kind of man your em
ployer will be anxious to promote?
It isn't often you have a chance to test your mental ability in such
a way that your name willbe known to the public if you win. And
that winning carries with it more than public recognition of mental
ability. A hundred substantial cash prizes are waiting for the win
ners. They range from $1,000 down to $1.00.
Sharpen your lead pencil, read the rules very carefully, and then go
in to win. You O AN do it, if you will make up your mind to
eliminate carelessness, look up the questions you are not sure of,
answer as many as you possibly can, and study a while before you
check the thirty questions called for in the rules.
