"When I'm a Grown-up Lady..." I'LL have a beautiful house . . ." SIndeed you will, Susan. A wonderful house. We don't know exactly what it will be like. But it will be far nicer than today's houses, because all houses will be better in ever so many ways. And there will be many things in your house that aren't even in vented vet. "I'll have a big, shiny automobile Or an airplane. Or even something like a magic carpet-who knows? Our radios and telephones and refrigerators all seemed like magic when we first heard of them. "I'll have lots and lots of money . . . " Money? Money isn't everything, Susan. But every nickel, every dollar will buy more than it does today. Go on. "And -and I'll always be happy, like you!" Happier, we hope, Susan. For right now, in the laboratories, scientists are discovering things to make life happier, and in the fac tories engineers are finding ways to make products less expensive and more plentiful in years to come. Your dreams are coming true because so many men in companies like General Electric believe that the world of tomorrow will be better than the world of today. And they are working to make it so. General Electric Company, Schenectady, New York. American industry has accepted the responsibility of serving America, is accepting the responsibility of helping to defend America, will accept, tomorrow, the responsibility of helping to build a better America and a better world.
