NOTES:
 
   The first annual Good Luck Clover Newspaperboy Contest was held in 1955 by the Lever Brothers Company, makers of Good Luck Margarine. Before the start of the contest newspaper-boys asked their customers to save for them the "Clover Stamps" from the Margarine package. The contest ran for 8 weeks, early in the year, during which time newspaper-boys picked up the "Clover Stamps" from their customers. Each boy was eligible for as many prizes of his choice as are covered by the number of clovers he sent in at the end of the contest. 

 In addition to merchandise prizes each newspaper-boy who collected 600 or more clover stamps was eligible to compete for ten $1,000 college scholarships; by submitting the best essay of 250 words or less on the subject, "Why I want to go to college." Prizes ranged from flashlights and printing presses for 50 clover stamps to television sets and swimming pools in the 600-clover category. Valuable prizes were also offered for 100, 200, and 300 clovers. All prizes were illustrated in a comic book that was distributed to all the boys that entered the contest. Included in the entry package was the "Official Record for the Good Luck Clover Newspaperboy Contest"

 Phil Rizzuto, famous short-stop of the New York Yankees is pictured on the record sleeve, and on the recording he offers special winning tips. What to say to customers; How to get ladies to start saving Good Luck margarine "Clovers," and everything kids need to know to win. Tried, and proven by other boys who enterd the contest - and won! This dates the record to either 1956, or 1957, the last year the contest was held.
