An advertisement sponsored by the Brewers of America published in the July 24th 1947 edition of the Cambridge Chronicle:
“A young man came rushing into the Clarion office the other day and wanted me to print an ad – ‘right quick’ – saying he won’t be responsible for his wife’s debts from now on, as he’s leaving her for good immediately.
I allowed as how the forms were all closed up, and it was too late to take his ad. He says: ‘All right, Monday then’ – and we agreed on Monday.
Of course, the forms weren’t closed. But I had kind of an inkling of what might happen. Then Sunday he phones me, and says, kind of sheepishly: ‘You can forget that ad. Me, and the missus have everything all patched up. And we’re having a friendly glass of beer, right now.’
From where I sit, if you give folks time enough to think things over, those hasty quarrels that come so often from misunderstanding will give way to tolerance and common sense.”
