7H04 The Repeater
Automatic Alarm Resets Itself! Sensational,
automatic alarm clock puts a stop to absent mindedness. Alarm signal
resets itself. Also has convenient shut-off lever for week-end late
sleepers. It's another General Electric first!
Clock Set Itself
who have been coasting on that old alibi for morning tardiness—"I forgot
to set the alarm"—have been given a sharp jolt by the General Electric
Company. A new automatic alarm clock which has to be set only once, and
thereafter wakes its owner at the same time every morning, is announced
by the company. The clock, called the Repeater, automatically resets itself,
after the alarm is silenced, to sound off every 24 hours —including weekends—unless
the owner remembers to shut off the alarm system completely.
brings up an interesting problem. Many psychiatrists claim that you forget
to do only those things your subconscious doesn't want you to do. In other
words, you really don't want to get up and go to work so you "forget" to
set the alarm at night. Will the same people who used to forget to fix
the clock on weekday nights get full cooperation from their subconscious
when it comes to remembering to turn off the automatic alarm on weekends?
Or will their subconscious trick them into forgetting to buy the new clock?
