: That's the first line of an advertisement for a hookah on page 57 of the Nov. 1936 issue of LIFE, the one seen on the Raiders Pan Am clipper. Ben Bernie must be a big band leader or something. He's sitting there smoking this water pipe. He could pass for Belloch. "... The Old Maestro tries out the BAGDAD Turkish Water Pipe during his recent engagement at the Mayfair Casino in Cleveland. ...All youse guys and all youse gals who are looking for a Christmass gift that's different, might get a hunch from Ben Bernie's picture up above..."
I have yet to lay my hands on a copy of that issue. I know I can grab one off of ebay or from another collector, but I'm a 'searcher' by heart, and KNOW someday I'll find a copy in one of our antique store januts. That ad is just one more 'goodie' to be looking for when I DO find my copy. Regards. Michaelson
