THE intention of every man with a family is
that his property be passed on to his wife and children at
his death. Unfortunately, this doesn't always happen be-
cause the family may be the very last to receive a part of
the estate property. Funeral expenses, other death costs
and outstanding debts have to be paid, and they come
ahead of the family.
Thousands of far-seeing men are using our
special Jefferson Standard Clean Up Plan to take care of
last expenses. This plan will put your family first and
assure them of receiving all of the property that you leave.
It can also be combined with other Jefferson Standard
plans to provide replacement of income. At no cost, ask
about our Clean Up glan today,

A MIRROR makes two out of one .

can't collect on it.

Yes, your bill may be as much as or
more than-it was in 1929. But you're
using more electric conveniences now-
and getting about twice as much for what
you pay Remember, too, that unlike other
prices, the price of electricity has stayed
