LS. BOHANNON 5 N. Dodge CY 4-4443 'MY BRIDGE CLUB WENT WILD' SAYS ALGONA WOMAN Ladies Even Pass Up Refreshments Algona, la. — When ladies who are avid bridge players pass up the cards entirely and center their attention on a household appliance—well, it's something. That is the opinion of Mrs X, College St. hostess who entertained her bridge club last week, Spot Dryer According to Mrs X, just as the ladies were settling themselves at the tables for bridge, one of the guests spotted her new automatic electric cloth- 1 es dryer in the kitchen. The guest exclaimed: "Oh, it's one of the latest models!" Cards Ignored Throwing down their hands, the ladies' gathered around the electric clothes dryer, exclaiming about its new fea - tures. Mrs X had no recourse but to go along with them. Mrs X was forced to dampen some clothes quickly in the bathtub so she could demonstrate her new electric dryer. Ladies Agog Such features as the timer control that can be set and forgotten, the up-front lint trap, the wide opening door and the big family-size load capacity of the new automa • tic electric clothes dryer captured the ladies' hearts. The group even forgot about refreshments. At afternoon's end, one of the guests was heard to ex claim: "Why I never! You can ' just b,et I'm going to talk Frank into seeing that we get one of these wonderful new automatic electric clothes dryers.
