THE 1946 AUTOMATIC WASHER cither fully- or semi-automatic. Fully-automatic washers til themselves, wash, rinse, empty damn dry. flush to clean them selves, shut themselves off, mixing "water to the temperatures callec for and timing each step of the process, A pre-soaking may be included in the cycle at will.

First phone 469 No. 12 of n Snips Watch for them e*ch Tuesday. Last we told "bow hot wafer can become." Si; in this sirtide we will discuss ICE. Ice is not as cold us many of us think it is. because \vc cannot make ice any colder than 32'—its froe/injj point. The Eskimo fakes advantage of (his fact and builds his igloo of cakes of ice, and shuts out the cold of the outdoors where it may be . r >0 di'^rees he- low zero. With the temperature so low and the ice at :C2 degrees AHOVK' 7.EUO. it can readily be seen I ha I ICK is WAKiSI by comparison. In previous articles we have shown that the expansion of wafer in the form of ice is only a fraction of what it i.s in the form of steam, yet if an effort were made to confine water so that it could not expand as it freezes, at 30 degrees' V. the enormous pressure of 27G,000 Lbs. per square inch would be exerted on the confining walls? The ancient Romans took advantage of this tremendous force (o break up the rock they used in their highways. Holes were drilled in the rock then filled with water, which froze, expanded, and then broke up (he huge stones. Such is the power of Frozen Water—ICE! Here, in Ulylheville, we arc blessed with an abundance of HOOD WATER. USE IT KOU YOUR .MANY NEEDS. If will help promote belter health and better living.
