Vintage Reader's Digest - September 1968 - IRS Reform
for item Mag02
Ahh 1968! Seems like only yesterday, but oh, so long ago!
There is nothing like reading and looking through a vintage magazine to make you realize how much things have changed - yet many of our issues remain the same today. One of the articles in this issue is titled "The American Alternative To Violence" yet violence remain a very big problem for us today!
Or how about the article titled "Time For Reform In The IRS". To quote the younger generation, "AS IF!"
Some articles of interest in this issue:
How To Talk To Your Children Big Push For "Teacher Power"; No "Surrender" in the Vietnam Peace Talks!; The Cuban Missile Crisis: Who Won?; They Turn Welfare Recipients Into Taxpayers; Great Salt Lake - Utah's Pocket Ocean; The Engaging Art Of Laughing At Yourself.
It's fun to look at some of the old advertisements in a magazine such as this one. Some of interest:
Buy 12 hit records from Columbia Record Club for $3.98 and receive a free 6-transistor radio free!
What price beauty? For 1 1/2 books of Green Stamps you can redeem them for beauty products.
A 5-cent coupon for Secret Deodorant.
A great Kleenex Election Collection offer where you can buy campaign buttons for past presidential elections back to 1924. Nice pictures of the buttons.
On page called "Poor Woman's Almanac" has some quotes from Ladies' Home Journal. The one I liked: Affluence is having no qualms about throwing out a three-way light bulb with one way left. I'm not affluent!
Overall, the magazine is in good condition with a few pages having very small knick in them from handling. The interior is clean - no marks or dog-ears though the pages have darkened slightly with age, but are not brittle!
This would make an excellent gift for the person born in September 1968, started their first year of college or some other milestone event!
