jt'10 ; , Ftb,24, 1954 City CUk.-GM.tU, M.scn CUj. U Vacyum Cleaners Sweep tJie Nation ·'CLEVELAND, o. (UP)--Appar ently increased gerhi consciousness »nd an increase in "do-it-yourself" housework, are behind the boom in the vacuum cleaner business. C. G.,"Frantz, president-elect of the Vacuum Cleaner Manufacturers', Association, reports that in the eight years since World War II about 700,000 more of the cleaners had been sold than in all the years before 1941.- Up to World War II, according to Frantz's · f i g u r e s, 23,550,000 cleaners were sold. Since 1945, sales have reached 24,250,000. Part of the post-war sales was pent-up demand, Frantz conceded, but the current nationally popularly "do-it-yourself" living emphasizes : easy maintenance, thus making the vacuum cleaner an important household appliance. The public also is , more conscious of the dangers of dust and dirt around the home. FINISHES BASIC TRAINING-- Pfc. Donald R.

Scheduled for completion by December, 1 aj54, it is said by the architect-engineers to be the first multi-storied structure in' the nation employing prestressed concrete. The big squeeze is done by running quarter-inch steel w i r . e s across the width of the beams and along the length of the floor slabs. As the concrete sets these wires are tightened by special jacks, thus squeezing or shrinking the concrete and getting rid of the pull-apart tendency in advance. The structure, 4G feet wide, the shrinkage will be about one-eighth of an inch. r FEW TAKERS NEW HAVEN, Conn.
