The electric light, the elec• tric iron, the vacuum cleaner -the use of electricity on the farm for pumping water, for milking, and for the cream separator-are help· i ng to make life happier. Genera:l Electric . research an d engineering have aided in making these conveniences possible. A new series of G -E advertisements showing what electricity is doing in many fields will be sent on request. Ask for booklet GEK-18.

The American home has many conveniences. But many American women often work as hard as their Oriental sisters. They toil at the washtub, they carry water, they churn by hand--all tasks which electricity can do for them at small cost, in half the time. · . The labor-saving possibilities of electricity are constantly becoming more widely recognized. And. the sbcial significanc~ of the release of the American woman from physical drudgery, through t he increasing use of electricity in and about the home, will appeal instantly to every collee;e man and woman ..

There is a cycle of fashion not only for the hats college men wear but for the . line of work into which they go. But your job h as to fit your head as well as your hat, for it has to fit your state of mind. Like your hat also, you r job needs to fit your purse. Therefore, whynotchoose one that brings not only satisfaction in service but in financial return. Selling life insurance is one of the few modern businesses that does just this.
