Northernmost City Hammerfest, the northernmost city in the world, was the first city in Norway to have electric lights. Power for the lights was furnished by a waterfall. Added impetus to the growing rend of integrating home appli- nces with other home furnishings s revealed by the 1954 line of in- ernational Harvester refrigerators, reezers, and air conditioners. Termed a "fashion first" by the! manufacturer, the new refrigerators and freezers boast a;newly designed door that can be covered with any color or pattern of fabric or plas- j tics.

"Service Holds Our Trade" Blytheville Phone 3-6863 ELECTRICITY AVERAGE HOME THIRTY Working for You Around-ilie-Clock, Around-the-Calendar..for only Pennies a Day.... There are few breadwinners in America today who can afford to hire 35 servants, each working 40 hours a week, to help them perform their housework. Yet the average householder now has equivalent help without even being aware of the fact and at a cost of less than $100 per year. The one servant which does the jobs of so many servants is electricity. The average U. S. home now has at least nine major appliances working to save time, effort and money for the home owner, A television set, radio, washer, electric clock, iron, refrigerator, toaster, vacuum cleaner and coffeemaker are owned by almost every family, along with a host of other electric "servants", such as shavers, mixers, ranges, heating pads and water heaters. In addition, one out of every Ten homes boasts an air -conditioner, automatic bed covering, blender, broiler, dishwasher, clothes dryer, garbage disposal unit and roaster ... all electrically operated. Since the end of World War II, more than 18 million families have introduced refrigerators into their homes, and 19 million have purchased TV sets. "The one servant that does the job of so many servants, is Electricity" FOR BETTER LIVING THE MODERN WAY-— —SEE YOUR ELECTRICAL APPLIANCE DEALER TODAY America's 50 millionth electric customer was recently connected to the nation's vast power network. Before too many years that customer may have, thanks to electricity, electronic devices that will cook his family's meals in a few seconds, year round air conditioning that will keep his home dust-and germ-free, a room-to-room intercommunication system, and lighting adjustable to all degrees of brilliance and color. With the rising cost of living, the paychecks of-servants have also risen. But the electric servant now works for less money than just ten years ago. In fact, the cost of living has risen 90 percent over the 1935-39 level, but the electric index is down 8 percent.* In 1929, the average home's annual electric bill was $31.78. Today, it is only three times'lhat figure, even though the same home uses five times as much electricity. By 1975, it is predicted that an average home may use 25,000 kilowatt-hours of electricity a year. Compared to one-tenth that amount at present. Fully equipped electric kitchens of revolutionary design and appearance, standard use of the heat pump and many other changes will cause the house of tomorrow to bear very little resemblance to today's dwelling.
