Foxy Grandpa -
knows what's best for
his grandchild! '
1 . My lands, the way my Father
acts you'd think Baby was his
child, rather than his grand
child. He comes over every day
and watches me feed and bathe
little Tom. Frankly, he used to
get on my nerves.
2. Whatever Baby does is all
right with him. So if I scolded
littleTom, I got scolded. I flared
up one day and told him to go.
I just couldn't help it. I was so
tired, my head ached. I was
sorry afterwards, of course.
3. Fatherdidn'tcomebackuntil
the day after and he had a lady
with him. "Now what?" I
growled. "This is Miss Benson,
a home lighting advisor. We're
going to light condition this
house and don't you argue . . .
4. ... Poor light is making you
a nervous wreck. Good light
will help you. And it will pro
tect little Tom from possible
eyestrain. My grandchild won't
be an eye cripple if I canhelp it."
i A
I.E.S. Lamps make
seeing easy!
. . , and they add beauty
to your home!
One of the most popular I.E.S.
lamps is the bridge model. It
fits in nicely by easy chair or
davenport. The translucent
bowl makes the light soft and
glareless and sends part to the
ceiling for general illumina
tion. The model illustrated is
available with eitner parch
ment or silk shade. The stand
ard has silver and gold finish
and a useful night light in the
5. As soon as I had the proper
light, I felt myself relaxing and
smiling again. I realized poor
light had been making me a
cross-patch. Father knows I'm
grateful tohim now.Iwasafraid
having plentiful light would
cost a lot. It hasn't though
because Pacific Power & Light
Company's rates are so low. For
your children's sake and your
own, ask their home lighting
advisor to tell you about light
conditioning. She'll do it free!
