of the Wolf is proverbial. Practically no energy is
required where Sunlight Soap is employed. Sunlight
Soap is energy itself. The Wolf is the enemy of
mankind;
SUNLIGHT SOAP
is the enemy of all dirt. It is the friend of the house-
wife, and is made for her
profit. To the housewife it
means less labour, less dirt,
more leisure, and time and
money saved. Sunlight
Soap does away with need-
less rubbing and scrubbing,
