Gelula, Abner J. "Automation." Amazing 6 (Nov. 1931).

Cited by M. Herwald in "Anticipating the Unexpected" (q.v. under Literary Criticism) as part of a campaign headed by Hugo Gernsback to portray the new technology of the time as the benign servant of humankind. "Automation" showed a world in which robots had lifted much of the burden of work from human shoulders.
