Bread, Butter, and Jam for 13,000,000 People ARE you one of these 13,000,000 people? Does the income which supports you come from making or sell ing automobiles, radios, electric refrig erators, or movie films? If so, you are one of them. You are one if that income comes from the rayon or aluminum in dustry, or any of the other industries which have grown up in a single generation. Automobiles, radios, gasoline, alumi num-these and many other products exist today because industry sought new products and better ways of building old ones. And after unearthing these new products, industry developed them, found ways to build them better, means to sell them at lower prices. Today, these industries not only employ millions but-through demands for steel, coal, cotton, transportation-they help support millions more. Some of the greatest advances in this work have been made through the use of electricity. Through it new products have been developed, and the efficiency of all industries has been increased. In most of these modern electrical develop ments, General Electric research and engineering have pioneered.
