A calculation of heat losses shows it would cost 35 per cent less to heat this theoretical home if all surfaces were covered with on: Inch of Insulating board than if the cell- Ing were covered with six inches. This .is because the first Inch or insulation Is the most effective ir. reducing 'heat loss.

Nobody liked'the Cily Slicker much, Unh Annie was a. local gal—and Iho.y did luive bad luck. Frosts hit the orchards, crops were rained out, the barn bnmcd down n-ilh Ihe last cow in it. So the neighbors got togctbcr and lalkcd things over. For 'lie sake of Annie's Dad, one gave Ihrin a cow. A second ngroed lo furnish feed. A third offered the use of his barn nnlil tlie Slicker and his wife gol on Ihcir feet. Well, tlie Slicker soon found-Hint the cow gave more milk than lie nnd Annie could use. -Being a. slircwd citizen, lie sold the surplus. The proceeds helped him lo buy another cow. The neighbors, approving this ambition, supplied more feed and the vet olTcred his services free. About llmt time, the Slicker decided the local milkmen wore robbers. He ilid some tall talking about Hie high prices they charged, meanwhile soiling his own milk for less. Many folks agreed thai Ihe Slicker was S3. gi'cal crusader against selfish interests. But one of Ihe neighbors (wlio happened to be a milkman) figured things out. He knew he couldn't nfTord lo buy co\vs, feed and doctor them, accniire er|tiipmcnt, pay delivcrymcn—and slill sell nt the same price as the Slicker, who hadn't a dime invested, got feed free, and had no overhead. A grcnl lo-do resulted, and soon folks slopped hauling feed to the Slicker's cows (which were now four in number). The neighbor requested barn rent, and the vet asked pay for his services. When the Slicker was really on his own—lie suddenly realized the local \nilk- incn were doing a darned good job lo sell milk as cheaply as they did. It's easy to compare the Slicker's methods with gov- , eminent in business. \Vhcn taxpayers' money furnishes Jf- everytliing—even lo making up any animal losses—it's' not surprising that no /xmiiOOT-tnaniigcd, taxpaying company can compete with it—any more than the local milkmen could compete ^yilll the City Slicker.
