Great Britain Recognizes the Value of Music in War-time To manufacture any article in England today it must be proven to be an absolute necessity. The land is stripped bare of extravagance and waste. Yet the making of musical instruments has been increased by two thirds in the last year over 1916. Why? Music is a tremendous necessity in homes no leas than in the trenches. Good music is absolutely needed to strengthen our endurance-our morale. Great Britain knows it to be so. So your purchase of a Columbia Grafonola is not an extravagance. It is a sign you are bringing courage, cheer, inspiration, good fellowship into your home.
