No fooling, the pretty gal above is hard at work in her office.

Oh how she loves to get up in the morning, rush down to the office and go back to bed again! She's Martha Alden, Pequot Mills' sleep consultant.

Miss Alden make studies and gives advice not only on how to get to sleep but how to make the most of it.

In the picture she is taking notes on the General Electric automatic blanket.

In her left hand is the thermostatic control which maintains an even temperature in the blanket, regardless of outside temperature changes.
