This is a selection from just that quantity of answers to an advertisement to an advertisement run by Eagle Shirtmakers in the March 11, 1961, issue of The New Yorker. The ad offered a give-away, asked for suggestion for its use and a name for it, with a prize of Eagle shirts for the winner. These are the liveliest replies from all over the United States, and abroad, from people in all fields, adults and children, men and women -- and some entering under more than one name.
