FRIDAY, MAY 20, 1953 BLYTIIEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE I New Frigidaire Dryer Uses Low Voltage And Requires No Venting to Outside DAYTON, Ohio — A low voltage' plug-In version of Frlgidaire's revolutionary Filtramatic electric clothes dryer which requires no outside vents to solve the problem ot excess moisture and lint In the house, is announced by Prigldaire Division of General Motors. The new nitre-malic electric dryer will operate on a conventional 120-volt 20 Ampere appliance circuit, and will not require the ad- tflkonal expense of 230-volt wiring to bring the advantage? of automatic electric, clothes drying to the great mass of homemakers across the nation.

For all practical purposes this new dryer cun be installed quickly and easily in many locations in the household and it can be moved about as required. Like Frigidaire's 230-volt Filtra- matic dryer, this new model solves the problem of lint and moisture in the air coming from the dryer, eliminating hot, humid room at- mo5ohere, steamy windows and condensation ol the walls anl furnishings. It is smartly styled to serve • as a companion piece to the Frig- K Itaire ultra-modern automatic elec- • trie clothes washer H One of the outstanding features of the new Filtra-matic electric dryers is a new exclusive Filtrator in the bottom of the cabinet. Fresh rooom air continually flows over tbe Filtrator's condenser-like tubes lining them cooler than the air Kim ing from- the revolving clothes drum. As lint-laden, moist air passes the Filtrator tubes, lint is tranoed as the moisture condenses. This moisture drains into a rust proof porcelain tray below. A connection is provided so that a flexible tube c?n carry the water to a floor drain. if there is one nearby. Or, the water can be emptied by simply removing the tray. =mnrtly styled in gleaming white and chromium, this new dryer has a one-piece top and back panel The cabinet and revolving clothes dram are finished with Frigidaire Lifetime Porcelain. The back panel con- t-'is the timing and heat controls. The exclusive Dry-O-Matic Timer CPI be set to shut off the dryer idiomatically when the clothes are dry. A switch next to the timer operates the interior light, and a signal-light on the panel glows wh°n the dryer is operating or when in- j terior light is on. A variable Heat Control is located on the left side of the back panel and is marked for medium, high and low drying temperatures, as well as for fabric classifications to eliminate guesswork in determining proper temper- at"re settings. The door and loading port are designed so that a clothes basket cnn be placed riirectiy below. The door swings open a full 180 degrees f$r> oermit loading or unloading from either side. The loading port has smooth rounded corners finished in porcelain to prevent snagging or catching clothes. Tlie porcelain-finished revolving drum permits clothes to tumble about freely while the drying operation is in progress. Frigidaire Radiantube sealed heating units are used for maximum effectivness and safety. An ozone lamp In the drum helps keep the clothes "sunshine fresh." Thick glass wool Insulation on all sides keeps the heat inside. Overall dimensions of the new model are: Width, 30 inches; depth, 26U inches; height at back, 41 inches and height of table-top surface, 38 Inches. Winter Winds Spurred Idea /or Dryers One source gives the credit for Invention of the forerunner of the modern automatic dryer to a Icy winter winds that nibbled at North Dakota farm boy—and the his fingers whenever he had to help hang out the washing around, the turn of the century. The boy was J. Ross Moore, father of the necessity-mothered automatic dryer. Not until around 1920 did he get. started on his boyhood idea that J there ought to be a better way and a warmer way of drying clothes. After countless experiments he finally developed a cabinet type dryer, crude, it Is true, but one that did the work. In' his__ cabinet type dryer the clothes were hung on rods and dried by radiant heat effects and by warm air from heating units underneath. In some early models the heat was from a wood or coal fire in cham- pers under the cabinet. Gas fires were used, too. But this bulky space consuming unit^which required work in hang- j Ing the clothes on the rods—was su- ' perceded by the now more popular tumble type dryer. The common feature is a barrel shaped chamber which rotates, tumbling the clothes over and over through warm air, heated by gas or electricity. The modern tumble dryer is fast — around 30 minutes compared with up to two hours In the old cabinet models — and one .load can often be dried while a second load is being washed. Tills makes wash day almost an assembly line operation. Record Catch YUBA CITY. Calif. MIJ-.A 19 pound 33 'i-lnch catfish wfis the largest ever caught hereabouts. Flihman L. A.
