From Electric Lighting to ELECTRIC LIVING i On October 2 T st, 70 years ago, Thomas A. Edison invented the * first workable incandescent light. That invention was the beginning of the great Age of Electricity. Fortunately, Edison lived in the United States. Here he found businessmen ready to invest their savings in his ideas and, with their help and money, his inventions were taken out of the laboratory and applied to the services of man. These men worked also to improve Edison's basic idea, and to apply it to hundreds of jobs where electricity saves time, work, money. Out of the brain* and activities of these men, working in a free country, grew th« highest standard of living the world has ever known. In only 70 years, our country has moved from ELECTRIC LIGHT to ELECTRICAL LIVING. Therefore, our' young people today have a still more brilliant future. There are unlimited uses for electricity to be discovered arid developed. Our youth are intelligent and ambitious, and one of them may be another Edison or Sfeinmetz or We'st- inghouse. All he needs is the opportunity to develop his ideas freely and to market his talents as he sees fit. f: Edison once said, "Electricity will have a great part to play, granted only that it can be unfettered, with full opportunity for the largest possible individual initiative and energy." We must guard'that "full opportunity" so that, vyhen another boy with "individual initiative and energy" fathers on idea, he may call upon the resources of our American system of free enterprise to make that idea a reality for all of u*, . ' ... : "• The Arkansas-Missouri'Power Company joins the nation In celebrating the 10th anniversary ol the invention ot the Brst incandescent lamp. W«, who have Inherited the "Torch ot Light," reaffirm our purpose to carry on Edison's ideals ol greater service Vo the public through Electricity—mort power for better living.
