RAMOS LUMBER and
know the voices of
this quartet of an-
nouncers heard on
ence football broad-
casts sponsored by
the Humble Oil & Re-
fining Company. Top,
left, is Kern Tips,
whose reputation is
national in scope;
experts agree that
Tips is one of the
best football announcers in the country—many say the best.
Next to Tips, on the right, is all-America Cy Leland, who
brings to broadcasting not only an ability to make a radio
football game lively and interesting but also a knowledge of
the game acquired by stellar play in the T. C. U. backfield in
his college days. Bottom, right, is the picture of Hal Thomp-
son, Station WFAA’s sports authority; this is his third year
on Humble’s broadcasts. Flanking Thompson is Eddie Dunn, genial and well known radio personality
who entered his second year on the Humble Company’s football broadcasts this season.

CITY MARKET and

Twice a year children find it
pays to be good—when Christmas
approaches and when the circus
announces its visit.
Nobody is much concerned about
Santa Claus just now, but the
other occasion which calls for
good behaviour is close at hand.
Announcement has been made that
Russell Bros.’ Circus will appear
in San Diego on Sunday, Nov. 12,
afternoon and night.
Parents find Russell Bros, a
particularly worth-while circus for
children because of a complete
absence from its premises of any
gambling games or undesirable
exhibitions sometimes associated
with itinerant amusement enter-
The circus menagerie gives
youngsters a chance to observe a
variety of wild animals at close
range. Especially appealing is the
fascinating African chimpanzee,
Topsy, with her childlike man-
nerisms and pranks.
In the main circus performance,
Walter Jennier’s marvelous train-
ed sea-lion exhibition wins im-
mediate response from children and
adults alike, and Buddy, the star
performer, is a prime favorite
with all audiences. The ele-
phants, of course, are always a
source of delighted amazement
to the kiddies, while in the clever
tricks of cute little ponies, dogs,
monkeys, and even cats, they can
picture their own animal pets.

YOU HEAR IT
THE CALL FOR THE BEER THAT/
At the Carnival or Country Fair, you'll hear the call for the
beer that pleases your taste., delicious, sparkling; Texas' Own
PEARL beer. PEARL is the robust, heavier-bodied brew that has
been "thirst-choice'' of three generations of taste-wise Texans.
Once you've tasted its flavorfu1 goodness, its zestful tang,
you'll declare it your favorite, too. Wherever good fellows get
together, you hear them call for PEARL Beer. The reason is in
the bottle. Find it yourself. Say, "Bottle of PEARL, please"!
