However, the automobile is one of
the strongest arguments against the
return of the liquor business. More

the drunken driver be kept off the
road. This means a stronger sup
port of prohibition by the people.

The wets are loud In their assertion
that no one wants the return of the
saloon. Well, even the wets must

for it is generally conceded that
prohibition put the saloon out of

Many women are amazed at the low cost of electric
cooking. For less than the cost of an ice cream soda
a day they have all the advantages of electric cook

that comes almost instantly from the turn of a
switch. They have automatic cooking that frees them
from the kitchen; their walls and ceilings are never
smudged; their sootless pots and pans save endless
hours of scouring; their kitchens are odorless, smoke
less, happy places to work.
When you weigh this small cost of electric cooking
against the health and happiness the Hotpoint Auto
matic Electric Range brings you, there is only one
