After Hours

This article shows and talks about women doing advertisments. In this one it shows women working while the war is going on. The women are working hard to help out while the men are off at war. They talk about working but at the end of the day when your done with work to relax and have fun. This ad is saying to feel good and have beauty to especially smile. To smile bright, and with that you will warm hearts. The ad is promoting sparkiling teeth, with healthy gums. In order to have that you need to buy "Ipana and massage". It not only cleans the teeth but massages as well to make gums firm. It states that by buying this product it will give you firmer gums, brighter teeth, and a great smile. They are doing this so people buy products, and buy more war bonds. They want people to help out during the war and buy the products they are advertising and to buy war bonds.

What is the connection between a smile and the war? What do healthy gums have to do with winning the war? How does this advertisement serve the interests of both the advertiser, the magazine and the OWI?
