the Master Force in.Manufacturing
TSHE marvels of electricity have revolutionized our manu-
facturing industries. With belts and pulleys replaced
by electric .motors operating automatic-almost human-,
*machines, many a slow and tedious process has been elimi-
nated. The - factory worker's task of yesterday is made
pleasant by his command of this magic power.
SThe Crane Company's plant at Chicago-electrical through-
~'out-is a model ;of industrial efficiency. Its 10,000 horse-
power of driving energy is brought 'by three sm~all wires
from a distant power plant. Then electricity drives the
machinery which handles the coal for heating, cuts the steel,
sif ts the sand and sortsjthe material-in fact does everything
from, scrubbing the floor to winding the clock.
Such an institution is marvelous--superhuman-made thus
by the man-multiplying force of electricity. The General
Electric Company has been instrumental ' in effecting thi?
evolution.. First, 'by developing successful electric, gener-
ating and transmission apparatus to furnish economically
this modern form of pkower. Secondly, through many years
of, active ;co.-operation, with hun~dreds of manufacturers, it
has mastered the art of applying the use of electrical eniergy
to a- multitude of needs. And finally, through branc~h
offices and other distributing channels, its products are
made accessiiIe to all.
