It's the place she takes her favorite recipes, blends in some ingenuity, adds a generous portion of love—and comes up with something great for her family. So her kitchen ought to be a special place. It ought to be equipped with the newest and most convenient appliances. And that makes it a natural for a gas range. In fact, every kitchen—new or THE SERVICE remodeled, country or contemporary—is a natural for gas. Gas is clean. Efficient. Fast. You turn it on and it's on. No guessing about the temperature. And when you turn a gas range off, it's off. Period. A gas range has more of the advantages a busy homemaker appreciates—from self- timers to self-cleaning ovens to an infinite number of temperature settings. \ See your gas appliance dealer ft) for a demonstration.
