The name itself Munsing
wear is a household saying of
the Nation.
One reason for this national
popularity is because in Mun

Into each garment is woven or
knit fine quality, perfection of
fabric, .finish and fit.
Add to these sterling qualities
the Munsingwear habit of out
washing, outwearing, outlast

the reason why Munsingwear'
gives such all 'round satisfac

Because of its unusual dura

The Opening of the World Theater
To those who are concerned in all things
that come to Omaha to contribute to its
growth and fame among cities, the opening of
the new World Theater this week has been a
source of pride and pleasure. The beauty and
' dignity of the surroundings in every way con
vey the impression that it is to be a worthy
home for high class and pleasurable entertain
ment. ,
If you visited the World Theater during the
opening week, you have had an opportunity
to see something of the decorating capacity of
several departments in this store.
All of the -gorgeous tunjuoise blue and gold
hangings, the magnificent velvet stage curtain
with its heavy gold fringes and huge tassels,
were made in the worki'Jom of our Drapery
Department on the Sixth Floor. In fact, all
of the draperies throughout the theater, in
cluding the lounge and charming rest rooms,
were designed and made by our Drapery De
partment. The thick, soft-textured velvet carpets, in
harmonizing shades of blue ' and gold, were
furnished by our Carpet Department on the
Sixth Floor.
The richly upholstered davenports
and overstuffed chairs in the
promenade lounge and each of the
smaller rooms are from our new
Furnituije Department on the Sev-
enth Floor.
The Brandeis Store is proud to
have been able to contribute in
these ways to the beauty of this
splendid new playhouse.
