be profitable No not the motherinlaw or ath letes foot Its your beard the stubble the five oclock shadow The hair on the face that wives usu ally complain about Stan Cunningham of Edward D Jones is changing all that Cunningham has grown out his beard in order to raise its working But Cunningham is not raising this money for himself hes doing it for the Comal County United Way He put three jars on the lobby of his office If you like the beard and you want Jones to keep the beard indefinitely one can put a dollar in the keep the beard for good jar If you like the beard but you only want him to keep it until the end of the United Way fund drive on Thanksgiving donate a dollar in that jar And if you simply dont like it and you want him to shave immediately you would donate to that jar
