Betty Pushes Xmas Seals 1948
By - - Discoveries
I'm not sure this item from 1948 ever got the play it deserved. So here's another view of what Burlington, NC, readers were learning at the time. Here's the caption from the photo:

Photo caption: Pictured above is Betty MacDonald, authoress of the best selling "The Egg and I" and most recently "The Plague and I", as she applied Christmas seals to gifts prior to Christmas. The authoress (who) is endorsing the Turberculosis Association drive to the limit, pointed out that the dread disease can strike anyone and added that she knows from experience. She urged the success of the A? County Seal Sale Campaign, which has been extended for the next few weeks in an effort to meet the $14,000 goal.
