Conduct it through your local newspaper or radio station, or both. Each contestant must relate what he considers the most hilarious experience of his life—an experience in which he played the leading role, of course. Limit the answers to 200 words, and give a prize of a War Bond to the person who has experienced, in the opinion of the judges, the funniest incident. Guest tickets to ''It's In The Bag," the "funniest picture of 1945" can be awarded the runners-up. If time permits, it would add to the attention-getting value of this contest by having the judges select about six letters for the finals, and then printing these six letters, or having them read over the air, and inviting your townspeople to vote for the first prize winner. Their selections could be mailed to the newspaper or radio station, or dropped into a ballot in ^e lobby of your theatre. , < CTem
