THE UNIVERSAL CAR
Will You Help Us Persuade
Mother is more than half persuaded now. .All she
needs is your hearty encouragement.
She has realised for some time that the modern laun
' dry with its perfect soft water systems, pure soap,
improved family washing equipment, and highly
skilled family washing experts is in a position to do
the family washing with fine discrimination in the
treatment of different fabrics and colors; in fact to
do it as well as she can do it and much better than alio
can hire it done in any other way.
You will agree with us that mother has enough to do
without fussing with the family washing, whether
she hires it done or does it herself.
Mother gets fearfully tired, but smiles and say alio
is feeling t'p top when she is about ready to drop,
And we, careless perhaps, in our absorption in our
own comforts, take her word for it.
But when we really face the question we know that
mother must get very tired.
Isn't it about timo to ease up on hor? Isn't it tinm
we insist that she easo up on herself?
Thore is more to life than eternal work.
Just you help us. Toll mother that it is really uao
loss to fuss with tho family washing.
Get her to bundle it up and send it to us, as so many
other tired womon havo done.
