But any housewife can fell you the li(c cxpet'l.uu-y of a greenback is even shorter ilian that. When a dollar goes to market.nowadays, it lasts hardly any time al all— ?nd seems to buy less and less of everything! . Everything but electricity, that is! Because the service you get for your electric dollar is just about the biggest bargain in yoi.ii- budget. If yours is an average, family, that dollar buys you twice as much electricity as it did 20 years ago! Break it down into terms of service, and little greenback lasts a long while. 11 can run a radio for 100 evenings—or do your family wash 50 times—or 'lell you the correct time for more than a year and a half! It'll even •vacuum clean 600 rugs—or brew you aooo cups of coffee! No matter what service you want it to perform for you, that electric dollar has a very long life, indeed!
