W es OTORSANS ELECTRIC WAhous TE SMALL MOTORS, FANS. ELECTRIC WARE FOR THE HOME Your Unseen Servant He comes at your bidding, but you do not see him. You turn a switch or put a plug in a socket, and instantly he is at work. He lights your lamps, cooks your meals, washes and irons your clothes, sweeps your rooms, gives you a breeze on hot summer nights, freezes your ice-cream, warms your bed, heats the baby's milk, runs your sewing-ma chine, polishes your silver, grinds your knives, transports you to your office, and carries you up or down in the elevator. He works for small wages and is at your service twenty-four hours a day. But you would not have this uni versal servant-at an expense anyone can afford-except for the work of many engineers who have made pos sible the economic generation of elec tric current and provided the means of turning that current into light, heat, and power. When you use your Westinghouse Electric Iron or Toaster-Stove or Sew Motor, you owe the lightening of your household tasks not alone to these appliances, but to many other types of electrical apparatus in the origination and perfection of which Westinghouse engineers have played a leading part. These include the turbo-generators in the power-house miles away, that generate the electricity, and the switchboards, meters, transformers, rectifiers, regulators, and more that make possible the control, distribu tion, and use of this great force. And Westinghouse engineering has been accompanied at every step by complete manufacturing facilities and high manufacturing standards. Thus Westinghouse quality is the same, whether in a great 15,000 horsepower blooming mill motor, a 75,000-kilowatt generator, or little fan motors and electric irons in a million homes.
