Tortoiseshell look very popular by Carleton Varney president Dorothy Draper amp co. Inc. Its time to think Tortoise Tortoise Shell according to w Ebster a dictionary is that a mottled Horny substance of the Shell of some turtles used in in laying and in making various ornamental websters is a bit behind the times i think. Today websters might define Tortoise Shell As that a mottled Horny substance of the Shell of some turtles formerly used in making various ornamental Why the a formerly a because today turtles Are being protected a we done to want them to become extinct. So real tortoiseshell ornaments Are no longer being made. But Tortoise fans deprive themselves. Thanks to Modem technology skilled artisans and antique collectibles the tortoiseshell look will never be extinct. There Are still Many Beautiful antique tortoiseshell ornaments around and they have increased in value considerably. A tortoiseshell picture Frame a pair of tortoiseshell bookends and a tortoiseshell cigarette Box which graces the Coffee table in my Den Are All valued treasures in my Home. And if you want More than a touches of Tortoise you can have As much of it As you want thanks to Man made reproductions of this natural hitchhiking never Worth the risks food franchise schemes tempting but dangerous new York a remember Glenn Turner and his Kos cot Mink Oil cosmetics and dare to be great self improvement course and the Holiday magic cosmetics sales plan in which Many people invested As much As $2,500 and More in Hopes of making big Money Kos cot and Holiday magic were two of the Many a a Pyramid Selling plans that burgeoned in recent years and then became the subject of Many Legal actions by the authorities and disillusioned investors. In general such plans Promise profits from recruiting other people to invest. Among other Pyramid sales organizations that have been subject to state or Federal Legal actions in recent months Are bes tune products which Sells soaps Golden products another soap distributor Sta Power and Bob Cummings inc., a Vitamin Selling Pyramid plan. Numerous Pyramid plans based on self improvement courses like dare to be great have proliferated under such names As dynamics in motion exciting life think and grow Rich opportunities unlimited and so on. Families and their older children seeking to make some extra Money or looking for jobs should be warned that while some of the older Pyramid plans have been restrained new ones crop up. Perhaps the most dangerous new Pyramid promotions Are those based on purported food delivery systems. In a typical plan of this kind the company sold distributor a a franchises for $5,000 or More. The company claimed to operate a phone order food delivery service. Supposedly customers could buy food from a Catalon to be shipped from a Central warehouse and the a a distributors would get commissions on these orders. Once such plan did have a warehouse. But people who has invested in franchises complained that supplies were not adequate to fill orders. This company soon went bankrupt. A similar operation started by promoters associated with the first company did not even have a warehouse when it came life seem a hopeless a give us a Call. Under the scrutiny of new York City authorities. The real purpose of such plans is not the Sale of food As much As to sell distributor franchises for $3,000 to $7,000. The franchise holders Are then supposed to make Money by recruiting other investors. Such food pyramids Are especially dangerous for the very reason that people Are worried about the High prices of food and both potential franchise investors and customers May think this is a Way to reduce costs. The fact is the customary retail margin in Large stores of 22 cents of your food Dollar is too Low to allow for phone in and delivery service and for paying commissions to distributors. This is the same obstacle that bankrupted Many of the food Freezer plans which proliferated like weeds a few years ago. Moderate income families who thought they could make Money on such Pyramid schemes borrowed from credit unions Banks and finance companies to invest. But when they found it hard to sell their soap or food let alone recruit new distributors they still had to pay the lenders the amounts borrowed plus interest. In cases on record some Pyramid promoters themselves persuaded potential Small investors to take out a loan from tanks or finance companies. Some Pyramid promotions Are directed especially at Young people. One based on Selling Oil additive to service stations has used College placement offices vocational schools and classified ads to recruit Young men. This company which had been Active in California and then moved into the East even got a major University in Long Island new York to permit use of its facilities to recruit students about to graduate sinus sufferers Here Good a a a for yowl a thu i a new a a How a Cote Quot Syna Cleta Decow Gettone Tablet act Lintlaw Tiv and Cleat All Natal in it cavities on to Ord co a a Tablet gives up to 8 Bour toilet rom pain end pressure of can tettion allow you to Teolk eat Dye top it watery a yet and Tunny note.
