But Mother will have a nervous breakdown when she sees what's happened to her favorite kitchen! Pop hasn't yet caught on to Mother's way of keeping house electrically. He hasn't yet learned that dependable electric service can take a lot of work out of housework-not only in the kitchen, but in every room of the house. For electricity is like many extra pairs o£ hands for the housewife-and the house-husband, too, when he takes over K.P. But there's one thing Pop docs know, because he's the lad who pays the bills. He knows that electricity is just about the smallest item in his family budget-even though he may not realize that the average family gets twice as much electricity for its money as it did 20 years ago. It costs so little —and it does so much! Yes, electricity is a big household bargain that comes to Pop —and to you, too —through' the practical experience of your friends and neighbors in this company, under sound business management. » Lisln to Ike New lilcctnc ltour_Mc I [OUR 01 !
