Die NU-WA I.iuiiidry is happy to announce thai lliu laundry production outlook i.s brighter than it has been for several years . . . and there is every mason to believe that it's going to «et hritjhter and brighter as time goes on. Here's why: The need of the war has released many skilled laundry workers from war time jobs as well as from the armed forces. This additional help is enabling the NU-WA to gradually speed production and make many quality improvements. Of course, many of the big improvements, which the new management" of NU-WA has planned cannot be realized until new laundry machinery and equipment are available. Nevertheless, it is encouraging for us to advise you that the NU-WA Is getting over the liig "hump" and it won't be too long before . The NU-WA will bo equipped and ready lo offer Hlylhcville one of the most advanced and most scientific laundry services in its history. Just bear with us and we'll deliver.
