How I Made My Marriage Happy (Aug, 1930)

Ladies, heed these words:

HOW an Artists’ Model Keeps Her Beauty

The Self-Told Story of a Famous Representative of the Profession Whose Life Is in Many Ways a Model for Other Women

By Grace Bowen

THE life of an artists’ model! I am going to tell you the truth about it.

I suppose that most people get their ideas of artists’ models from highly imaginative moving-picture stories in which the artists are likely to be more or less fantastic people living a gay social life, and the models are man-hunting vamps who divide their time between night-life in the cabarets and intimate “teas” in luxurious studios.

Making Chewing Gum for American Chewers

By Earle William Gage

IF the physical energy represented in chewing the 1,500,000,000 sticks of gum consumed by American gum chewers could be transformed and reduced to foot-pounds and mechanically applied, it would supply a power beside which that of Niagara Falls would dwindle into insignificance.

YOU’D like a raise. But how can you get one? Pay boosts depend on your boss’ decision. But helping him make that decision—in your favor—is often up to you.

Getting a raise merely because you deserve it is not only very rare, it is Dullsville. Where’s the fun? Life is a game when you know you’re worth more than you’re getting and you’re taking steps to get what you’re worth. Look at it that way—and remember that in nearly every job you must take steps to get as much as you deserve.

Your Own Mail Order Busines (Oct, 1958)

Your Own Mail Order Business

By John Winkler

When Arthur Johnson decided to earn some extra cash during his spare time he chose the mail order business because it could be run right from his own home. He reasoned that it was one of the few fields still open in which you could start your own business with a minimum of capital. In fact, his total investment was less than $100.00.

What began as a spare time job mushroomed into a profitable full-time business.

How successful was Johnson? Well, he drives a Cadillac convertible, owns a home in Nevada and a summer place in Florida, with a Cris-Craft cruiser to boot!

There’s money in Simple Inventions

Registered Patent Attorney Washington, D. C.

The greatest profit does not always come to the inventor of a complicated machine—often the inventor of some simple, much-used article stands a more favorable chance of making a fortune.

WHILE such complicated inventions as the radio, the airplane, the telephone and the electric light are among the major blessings of this modern age, yet we often lose sight of the fact that there are a greater number of simple devices which are contributing greatly to our everyday comfort, convenience, and enjoyment of life.

NOT SO LONG ago Charles Zamiska collected $7,162 from the Cleveland Graphite Bronze Company, making a total of $12,137 the firm had paid him over a brief six-month period.

The $12,137 equals 25 per cent of savings realized by his firm during the six months his plan for handling cores in Cleveland Graphite’s shell casting department has been in effect. Charlie had submitted the plan through the company’s employee suggestion system.

By Lester David

THE MAN in the chair watched the barber come away from the electric lathering machine with a fistful of creamy stuff. He had watched this process dozens of times while he was being shaved or getting a haircut. It was just a gadget which makes lather and you can see it in any barber shop in the country.
