FRIDAY, FEBRUARY.V1MO: Jjreater Space Meaning Of Meter- Miser Is Explained jBLYTIIEVILLJi! (AUK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE,SEVK»| •1 Over a period of several summers, Inere lias appeared In a greut many public • advertisements the phrase,, Meter-Miser, in fomicclioji with one specific make of electric refrigerator. Hrsl, taken to he just »n advertising phrase, it has appeared so persistently and has made such R definite impression 'upon tlie public inlnil ilwl ii lias stimulated a- mure complete Inquiry as to Just lay behind the idea. Sume Intelestlng'facls are brought to life as a. result. The.; term "Meter-Miser" \-, ft Hade marked. name ot a wholly Ufv dasig!) In relrisferutor median Ism. The conventional typt.s of eleiptrtc refrigerators arc nearly nil equipped with compressors that Irnnsfonn tlie rolary power of 1111 prdlflury electric motor to a vertl ciU compression stroke very mud like an nuioinoWIe engine, e.wepi of generating power iroin siiMline tile refrigerator uses the powei] iYojt the electric motor to compress tlie refrigerant gas in tlie course of providing- the refrigeration. Mccbani- fully, however, the' compressor i: made of cylinder block.?, pistons connecting rods, crankshafts, valve* and oilier minor jtems. all iniite similar to the automobile engine In fact It takes a fairly good motor just to.keep all the parts moving before any refrigeration work Is done at all. This function is comparable to n train without freight. Tlie Meter-Miser unit Is a complete departure from the conventional. There is no transformation of rotary motor power to n -ve.-ti- cal power stroke, requiring all the mechanical parts; already outlined. In'tills It Is in harmony with [he modem, trend in building- great ocean liners and also clc-.-tric power station. These now use the rotary principle directly, and are not only exceptionally powerful and smooth in operation but the power plants themselves are far more compact' and even neat 1 looking. In the new refrigerator 'design the compression stroke is not vertical or not straight, but is actually i-otary. .This means tliat the entire-' mechanism which moves is built on the shaft of the motor itself Instead of working back and forth like an engine piston, the Meter-! Miser simply spins with Ihz arum- ' ture shaft of the motor. Everything is simplified. Many power consuming pans arc-eliminated altogether There are no more U (; H S| ei!a , s or pulleys. All of this means that the small motor on the tneier-inLv>r will provide the samp refrigeration us thut furnished by Its larger predecessor of the conventional type. Or the same .ski; motor will furnish ti greater amount of re!rij;er.itio». In either event, considerable economy is effected, and long life is assured , since the entire inedmiilsin including the motor fe hermetically .scaled forever JYoin outside nontoct, away from dirt, dust a;)d wol.slure. • The Meter-Miser Is Duly a;i Innovation in modern mechanical da- Girls Sel Caps For Headgear From Tommies LONDON (UP) _ in wartime, Sills always have had on luge to collect army hats and caps complete with badge and insignia; and many a soldier has hud to return to camp and explain shamefacedly (hut Ills cap had been taken bv his, girl. One girl bragged she had 23 caps already. Each was from a different, regiment. Now Is has become the turn of the French sailors wcrklng out of one British port. Their berets with red pom-poms have proved ine- sisliule to the girls. Aided by the blackout, they have made nightly sport ot beret-bagging, not just for souvenirs but because with n little adjusting, the caps can be made into very natty' headgear tor women.
