"SAVE THIS COVER FOR VALUABLE PRIZES"
The list of valuable prizes. Note that the terms of the contest are for the 1949-50 school year.
I didn't have a Musgrave Pencil handy for this shot so I used a Field Notes No. 2.
What a great slogan. That appears to be some sort of geographical segment that the horse is riding on but I'm not sure what it is.
I have to assume it's no coincidence that Colorado's oldest rodeo is the "Ski-Hi Stampede." The above 1920s photo may have even served as some inspiration.
No. 13 must mean something in regard to this notebook model but I don't know what. Also, what is "Yellow News?" Probably refers to the paper. Ragland, Potter & Company was a wholesale grocery outfit based here in Middle Tennessee. I've tried to find out what the address designation "Nashville 1" refers to but I still haven't found it.
This is an early 1900s photo of a Ragland, Potter & Co. branch in Murfreesboro, TN. Today, Ragland Bros. owns Piggly-Wiggly and Lucky Supermarkets.
Soft and pulpy ruled paper. I got these thinking I would fill them with all sorts of interesting stuff but I haven't had the heart to put lead to them yet.
What if I sent my kids to school with these as a joke?
I've seen some Big Chief notebooks on Ebay for as much as $100 recently which is just ridiculous. I could be wrong but I think the Ski-Hi is a rarer bird, possibly distributed only in the Southeast. I think I only bought half of the stack. I've thought about going back for the rest but I don't have any idea where that junk shop was.
