"Some people think the future is strange but I have a feeling some things won't change..."

surge-o-matic
is an ode to single gals with a home to keep: casseroles to cook, cakes to bake, tubs to scrub and lips to line (because everyday is a beauty pageant!). Your hostesses are the homemakers of "tomorrow": domestic dropouts who wash and whisk and mop and chop - its down and dirty domestic fun around the clock. Some say that housework is dull and makes a girl glum, but these gals will show you it's the drudgery that's all the fun.

"She's loved out loud. The only time clock in her life is the one on her range in the kitchen. Her schedule is subject to her mood. She'll never get fired" (
Ladies Home Journal 1952, Maiden Firm Brassiere Co. advertisement)
