Simply Forces a Billion Bubbles Through
When you dissolve Washclean in boiling water the Billion Bubbles start
working for you. Every thread of your washing is'cleansed by these bubbles
and every bubble does its work gently. No chemicals equal their work!
They reach every crevice and remove every particle of dirt.
Save Your Time Get Washclean!
And they don't need your help you can be about
your other duties while they do the work.
Think of the thousand and one little duties you can
tend to while the billion bubbles are being forced
throu gh you r clothes.
Think what a relief it will be to avoid the rubbing,
scrubbing and pounding of your clothes on the wash
board! Think how much better your hands will feel when
you don't have to keep them in boiling water and soap!
Hundreds! Thousands! cf letters from husbands
whose wives have made the Billion Bubbles do their
washing. Each letter tells of the difference Washclean
has made how their wives have learned to treat wash
day like other days how much longer their shirts wear
and how grateful they are to Washclean.
Let the billion bubbles go through
your clothes. Get Washclean today.

article: xo. 4.
We have discussed breathing and the
physiology of singing until I suppose
you are tired of it and want to hear
something: new. I only went Into the
breathing subject at such great length
because I wanted to Impress you with
the fact that it is absolutely the most
important thing in voice culture
If you would be a singer Of more than
minor importance, breathe and breathe
right It is better to be right at the
start and learn these rules than be
come careless and have to do it all
over again when you are paying four
or five dollars for a lesson.
I am now going to tell you how to
hold yourself when practicing. This
is another Important thing, because the
positions you unconsciously assume in
rehearsals are bound to be assumed
later when you appear before an audi
ance. You have noticed, no doubt
some singers who, while they are sing
ing, make facial contortions as if they
were dying by inches and in 'the great
est agony. Others you will note step
forward and render the most difficult
selections with an ease and grace that
attracts you and adds to your enjoy
ment Some singers you have noticed
make the most horrible "mouths" when
they are singing, as if they were hav
ing a tooth pulled. This is because
they did not practice properly.
When you are practicing, always try
to see yourself as others will see you.
This can best be done before a mirror,
one in which you can see yourself "full
length" as well as in the face. Do not
stand stiffly, but do not move about or
appear restless. Do not move the fin
gers, hands or feet except for expres
sion. Too many gestures are bad, ex
cept for lively, topical songs.
Remember that your ease and conh
dence before an audience Is reflected
in them. If you appear nervoua or
restless, your listeners will become
nervous or restless In sympathy with
you. A person walking out before an
assembly and singing with confidence
and assurance has won half the battle,
for he has inspired confidence and as
surance in those who hear him. When
you have mastered yourself, you can
make use of your body and arms In ex
pression. Another thing, do not drum on the
piano when you are practicing, because
it prevents you from hearing yourself,
which is of the utmost Importance, as
you no doubt can see. Strike a single
note on the piano when practicing
alone, or else a common chord, then
assume a quiet, natural position. Do
not sit, as I Bald before, as only in a
standing position can the deep breath
be drawn and yon be properly prepar
ed for the exercises.
It is not necessary to pose while
singing by placing one hand on the
chest and the other behind the back,
nor is it necessary to carry a sheet of
music which the singer la probably
familiar with backward. These sub
terfuges tend to indicate that the sing
er is nervous and does not know what
to do with his hands. It 1b far better
to let them lie quietly on the side. You
will note that all the members of "The
Spring Maid" move but little during
the most important selections.
In the next talk I am going to tell
you more about practicing, because If
you are going to do this yourself and
wish to do it right you must learn the
why and wherefore of everything, so
as to be able to grasp the bigger things
as they come to you.
