And with them their banjos and cotton bales, their slow brown rivers. . . .

Here by your bedside, warm and glowing, is the Sun itself
Snap the switch and you have wrought a miracle. Out of winter's darkness springs summer sunshine, glowing with all the warmth and vitality of June. Only a lamp, you may say, but a lamp that is one of the triumphs of modern science, because it is in reality a miniature sun duplicating the essential rays which have made sunlight the source of life and energy for all mankind.
Foods that build health can be Palate-Tempting
RECIPES that actually make your mouth water may now be made from the most healthful of health foods! At Battle Creek, diet specialists have given attention to the taste and flavor as well as to health. Meatless dishes abounding in strength-giving qualities now rival choicest beef and chicken.

Now she connects directly with the other central office and repeats the number you want to the other operator. You hear her do this so that you can correct her if there is any mistake.

Doesn’t do you a lot of good. RCA RADIOLA 60 Super-Heterodyne Radio receiver and speaker as separate units permit a flexibility […]
