Better Furnished Homes
Mean Happier Homes
Like the wickednesr nf Rome before its fall, we have gradually
built in this grand country of ours since its Puritan days a
spirit of jazz and gad which strikes at the very foundation
of that greatest of all institutions, the American Home.
Our demands have become less exacting in home furnishings as
our reverence for the home waned. Fortunately we Amer-
icans have a faculty of discovering the error of our ways
before it is too late, and in this matter we owe much to the
leaders of this Better Homes movement for having halted
us in our mad rush and, like the great warrior said to us,
‘‘Turn, boys, turn. We’re going back."
The greatest minds of our country concede that oar homes are
the foundation of our great nation and we believe that this
movement will create a desire in all of us for Better Homes.
