National Geographic : 1971 Dec
Surprise him with a Smith-Corona in December and he may surpriseyou with better grades in June. After the holidays, your teen ager faces a mighty rough year. That's when a Smith Corona can start looking like the greatest Christmas present ever. With our electric port able, for instance, he can learn to type twice as fast as writing by hand. His spelling can improve, too. (A typed word that's misspelled just begs to be corrected.) Thinking can get a jolt also, because a typewriter can accept ideas as fast as they come up. And then a quiet little miracle called Organization can occur. When that hap pens, pride, confidence and self-esteem can gain a toe hold. So with a little applica tion (plus ability, needless to say) your teenager's school work could very well im prove. Only June will tell. But why a Smith-Corona? Because all typewriters are not the same, that's why. We invite you to com pare a Smith-Corona against any other typewriters to prove it. Compare durability, portability, features. Compare years of expe rience in actually "making" typewriters (especially elec tric portables). Then remember that Smith-Corona is the only completely American-made portable typewriter, and you'll know why more people in the world buy Smith-Corona Elec tric Portables than any other. And why you should too. Our dealers are in the Yellow Pages. mi SMITH -CORONA We think we make better students. We know we make better typewriters.
