Hugh Hefner’s famous rag has graced newstands for more than 50 years now, delivering to millions of readers every important moment of our country’s trials and triumphs since the mid-fifties.

Though the gentlemen who handle such matters for the magazines and newspapers of the nation seem to be working with a rich variety of statistics, their sum totals all come out the same. No matter how you add it up, Marilyn “blonde all over” Monroe is the juiciest morsel to come out of the California hills since the discovery of the navel orange. Her own exciting 3 dimensions are doing as much to keep her studio in the black as all the ballyhooed 3-D gimmicks.
