TWO TON BAKER TO GIVE A BIG GIFT--HIMSELFHe and Ed Cooper Will Sponsor Contests
BY LARRY WOLTERS
Two Ton Baker, boss of his own wake up show at 8:15 a.m. on W-G-N, and Ed Cooper, who conducts the Telephone Quiz at 6:15 p.m., will sponsor contests this week in which they will give themselves away. In other words, they will come to your home if you win. The stunt is tied up with the Tuberculosis institute's Christmas Seal campaign.
Participants in Two Ton's contest must finish couplets about the seals. Two Ton will sing the first line, which he has written, this morning. Cooper is planning a slogan writing contest. He will tell about it on his show tonight.
On Friday, Dec. 13, Baker and Cooper will do their shows from the homes of the winners. Each winner also will receive a $50 treasure savings bond. There will be additional prizes for the runner-ups.
