March of children mirrors the fight for women's votes and rights in this frighteningly whimsical ad for talcum powder for babies. "If you must experiment with a talcum powder, try it on your own skin. 'Safety first.'" Note that the layout has the baby drum major about to step onto the reader's head, and maybe bonk you with the ball on top of the staff. Published in the August, 1915 issue of DELINEATOR.
