Algona — A large number of Jocal women, previously confined to their homes on Mondays by ''wash-day chains", hailed with delight the full-page, full-color announcement in last Tuesday's Des Moines Register — which proclaimed the "Lowest Price Ever" on Maytag Automatic Washers ,and Dryers. Feminine Furore With the appearance of this startling announcement, many ladies were so overcome local with joy and delight that they could hardly speak. A number, however, when interviewed by our reporter, made statements concerning this history-making announcement. One lady, when interviewed, exclaimed: "My, isnt this wonderful news! Just think, what Ive always really and trujy wanted, Maytag automatics, and now they're at the Jpwest prices ever." A woman in the next block, who had just finished up a hard day's washing, came to the door and said: "That settles it for me, I'm having a new Maytag automatic washer — no more of this wash-day torture for rne" Bush To Local Firm The impact of the Des Moines Register announcement on Tuesday hit "with full force here. Fortunately, the local firm of North Iowa Appliance Center, owned by Al Richardson and John Levy, was prepared, and had the Maytag "Highlander" Automatic Washers and Dryers on hand. Had they not taken this precaution, it is questionable if the local appliance firm would be in one piece today. Ladies came to the State streejt store and demanded to see the Maytag items at the Lowest Price Ever. Owner Comments John Levy, of the North Iowa Appliance Center, was interviewed by our reporter also, who had to fend with the ladies to get near the Maytag machines. During a brief lull, Mr Levy stated: "I'm not a bit surprised at tfeis activity on the part of the ladies. When you say 'Maytag' to a housewife, it's just like saying Cadillac to a man. And when Maytag announced the Lowest Price Ever on these automatics, well, something had to give." Now On Display The Maytag "Highlander" Automatic Washers and Dryers, subjects of all the hubbub, are to be seen at the display room of North Iowa Appliance Center in Algona now. They have that well-known Maytag dependability, and are now available at the Lowest Price Iver! ... at North Iowa AppU* Center, Algona, Iowa, Knut Opnedahl; trustee, Antone Speich: treasurer, Richard Kinseth; financial secretary, Mrs Knut Oppedahl; Sunday School superintendent, Mrs Harold Mountain; ass't.
