Practical Energy-Saving Advice from Phineas Q. Twitch - Another in a Series by Phineas Q. Twitch,...
Another in a Series by Phineas Q. Twitch, Eminent Sell your electric refrigerator to the junkman, and get back some of money you wasted on it. Besides taking up too much room, it costs about 5 cents a day to run. This substantial saving will help balance budget these days of rising costs. Of course, without refrigeration, food will spoil--but that can easily be avoided by eating out of cans. Or eating at all. This will undoubtedly build up your character, though break down your physique. 2 3 Donate your electric sewing machine to an orphanage, and start stitching by hand. Of course, it takes a lot of time. And maybe it is a little on the eyes. But, just think, you'll save one whole penny for every hours your sewing machine doesn't run.

In this way, of course, you'll miss the All-Girl Orchestra under the direction of Phil Spitalny, with Evelyn and Her Magic Violin--but you'll actually save one-sixth of a penny every time you do! In two years this self-sacrifice on your will have saved you the price of a pack of cigarettes!
