Dear Reader:

If the list upon which I found your name is any indication, this is not the first — nor will it be the last — subscription letter you receive. Quite frankly, your education and income set you apart from the general population and make you a highly-rated prospect for everything from magazines to mutual funds.

You’ve undoubtedly ‘heard everything’ by now in the way of promises and premiums. I won’t try to top any of them.

Nor will I insult your intelligence.

If you subscribe to Newsweek, you won’t get rick quick. You won’t bowl over friends and business associates with clever remarks and sage comments after your first copy of Newsweek arrives. (Your conversation will benefit from a better understanding of the events and forces of our era, but that’s all. Wit and wisdom are gifts no magazine can bestow.) And should you attain further professional or business success during the term of your subscription, you’ll have your own native ability and good luck to thank for it — not Newsweek.

What, then, can Newsweek do for you?

The answer depends upon what type of person you happen to be. If you are not curious about what’s going on outside your own immediate daily range of concern…if you are quickly bored when the topic of conversation shifts from your house, your car, your ambitions…if you couldn’t care less about what’s happening in Washington or Wall Street, in London or Moscow…then forget Newsweek. It can’t do a thing for you.

If, on the other hand, you are the kind of individual who would like to keep up with national and international affairs, space and nuclear science, the arts — but cannot spend hours at it .. if you’re genuinely interested in what’s going on with other members of the human race … if you recognize the big stake you have in decisions made in Washington and Wall Street, in London and Moscow…

then Newsweek may well be the smartest small

investment you could make for the weeks ahead.

For just 11c a week, as a Newsweek subscriber, your interest in national and international affairs will be served by over 200 top-notch reporters here and around the world.

Each week, you’ll read the most significant facts taken from their daily dispatches by Newsweek’s editors.

In the eventful political arena, in

Society programs affect the nation’s economy?
