     Fine living . . . a la carte?

     Come to the Waldorf-Astoria!



     LISTEN HUNGRY ONES!

Look! See what Vanity Fair says about the

     new Waldorf-Astoria:



     "All the luxuries of private home. . . ."

Now, won't that be charming when the last flop-house

     has turned you down this winter?

     Furthermore:

"It is far beyond anything hitherto attempted in the hotel

     world. . . ." It cost twenty-eight million dollars. The fa-

     mous Oscar Tschirky is in charge of banqueting.

     Alexandre Gastaud is chef. It will be a distinguished

     background for society.

So when you've no place else to go, homeless and hungry

     ones, choose the Waldorf as a background for your rags--

(Or do you still consider the subway after midnight good

     enough?)



        ROOMERS

Take a room at the new Waldorf, you down-and-outers--

     sleepers in charity's flop-houses where God pulls a

     long face, and you have to pray to get a bed.

They serve swell board at the Waldorf-Astoria. Look at the menu, will

you:



     GUMBO CREOLE

     CRABMEAT IN CASSOLETTE

     BOILED BRISKET OF BEEF

     SMALL ONIONS IN CREAM

     WATERCRESS SALAD

     PEACH MELBA



Have luncheon there this afternoon, all you jobless.

     Why not?

Dine with some of the men and women who got rich off of

     your labor, who clip coupons with clean white fingers

     because your hands dug coal, drilled stone, sewed gar-

     ments, poured steel to let other people draw dividends

     and live easy.

(Or haven't you had enough yet of the soup-lines and the bit-

     ter bread of charity?)

Walk through Peacock Alley tonight before dinner, and get

     warm, anyway. You've got nothing else to do.
