Give G. T. Want Ads a trial.
We? re just one big happy family now
1 . We really didn't have any fam
ily life. None of us kids stayed
home nights unless we had studies
to do. Dad took the only so-called
reading lamp we had. Mother
hovered around, mending or try
ing to read the paper when Dad
. finished with it.
m . s k wxxm.
2. We kids couldn't seem to do
things together like other fam
ilies. When we read, we got
headaches or became restless or
irritable. Mother made us give
up games because they always
ended in a row. That's why we
staved home so little.
3. Then Bud's sister, May,
(Bud's my pal) started training
to be a home lighting advisor.
She practiced on their house,
and say this light condition
ing stuff made a wonderful dif
ference. I didn't know seeing
could be so easy indoors.
4. Then I had an inspiration. I
asked May to tell us what ailed
our house. Dad was afraid light
conditioning would cost too
much, but May assured him it
wouldn't because Pacific Power
& Light Company's electric
rates are so low.
