Since the new and improved
type of phonograph has been

the couple wanted.

"The price of the new A. C. re

ment, "because the popularity of
our sets has brought the enormous
savings of automatic, quantity
production. These processes,
while achieving great economies,
also attain a high degree of engin
eering precision. From the be
ginning, it has been our policy to
perfect a set before asking the
public to approve it. And when
we say 'Perfected' we mean a re
ceiver which will give complete
and lasting satisfaction; from
f It handles, which all troubles, crudities and
j?lutne of a non-essentials have been refined;
which gives pure, natural tone;
which is mechanically and scien

have In our new A. C. Model and
we present It as the highest devel
opment of radio today."
