It's a wonderful feeling. He can go places now. And he'll keep on going places all his life — as long as he keeps his sense of independence. That's America's richest resource — not forest, field or mine, but the spirit of her people. Ambition, energy, self-reliance are the reasons why individuals — and industries — grow great from small beginnings. Take the electric industry—this company, for example. A few practical dreamers strung the first lines. People of faith and vision risked their savings. Other folks combined skill and hard work to produce better and better service —at lower and lower cost—creating more and more jobs—and carrying the benefits of electric living to more and more people. That's the American way of progress. Free enterprise, vision and hard work. They are what built America and the American way of life, which is the highest standard of living in the world. No nation has ever found a substitute for that combination. No nation ever will. • Listen to Hi* Si/mm.r *f«ctric Hour-FRANKIE CARLE AND HIS ORCHESTRA, •x«ry Sunday, 4:30 P.M., CST, CBS. f GAS & ELECTRIC COMPANY
