From the January 1949 magazine.

Earth-shaking

"In this Atomic Age, many of us have come to look for earth-shaking news. Well, here's a little item that's not quite earth-shaking--but it's bed-shaking, anyway. The item concerns Keefe & Keefe, an organization which has just produced an ambulatory oscillator. This portable gadget, which is no bigger than a suitcase, will rock your bed. That is, it raises and lowers the foot of the bed about two feet every 25 seconds. Members of Insomniacs Incorrigible are urged to try this oscillator rather than join Alcoholics Anonymous. The idea of using the oscillator for other furniture items is also advanced for our more imaginative readers."
