By Sidney Margolius Consumer Expert jor Sunday Gazette-Mail One of the most serious problems afflicting consumers today is the proliferation of models that has occurred in the past ten years. The thousands of barely-differentiated models of household appliances on the market make them costlier to buy and help increase repair costs. Moreover, selecting an appliance suitable for your specific needs has become increasingly difficult. A mail-order house that used to offer three different models of washing machines now has eight. Or if you go to buy a TV set. the wide choice can completely confuse you. About a year ago we figured out that there were some 900 to 1,000 different brands, models, sizes and types (black and white or color) on the market. Two general buying policies may help. One, recommended here before, is to stick to the middle price lines. These usually have the same capacity and basic features as the most expensive or deluxe models. For example, manufacturers produce a basic cooking range to retail for, say, .$200, and then add various features until it becomes a deluxe model with all possible cooking aids, at a price of S400. But ranges in the $300- S325 bracket will have all the basically useful features, such as a clock-controlled oven, time-controlled appliance outlet, oven window and light, and even a self-cleaning oven. The other is to buy the simplest model you really need, not only to save on the purchase price but to hold down repair expenses. The more complicated models re- quire more frequent and costlier repairs. Most women want a timer when they buy a new range but many do not really use it often, and some, not at all, dealers report. Here are specific suggestions on several of the more confusing appliance purchases. RANGES*: If* you do want a range with a window, it should be at least two panes and preferably three for best insulation. Since ovens have been enlarged in the 30-inch ranges, this size has become increasingly popular in comparison to the formerly much-wanted 40- inch ranges. Oven size is the important factor to check. Of two 30-inch ranges made by different manufacturers, one may have an oven larger by one to two inches on all sides. SEWING* M A*C H I N E S: These have become one of the most complicated items to buy because of the many straight stitch, zig zag, semi- zig-zag and ultra deluxe machines on the market, with each manufacturer now offering a wide range of models. You can pay anywhere from $60 to $500 for a sewing machine, and the $500 machine may be less suitable for some sewers than the $60 one. Many portables have the same head and sometimes even the same motor as cabinet machines. Only in the larger consoles will you usually find a stronger motor. Some sellers charge disproportionately more for the same machine in a cabinet. In other instances, the cabinet may cost only nominally more than the carrying case. A cabinet may be more desirable if you do a great deal of sewing Mary Powell Marries James Arnold Warner Coleman Moore Bridal Performed HUNTING TON - T r i n i t y Church of God was the setting on Friday evening for the wedding and reception when marriage vows were exchanged in an open-church service by Miss Jerry Diane Moore and Isaac Richard Coleman Jr. She is the dauhler of Mr. and Mrs. Rudolph W.

Kenneth Pyles at the Milton U n i t e d Methodist Church, Miss Mary Clyde Powell, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Charles L. Powell Jr. of Milton, became the bride of James Arnold Warner, son of Mr. and Mrs. Lee A. Warner of Hurricane. Nuptial music was furnished by Mrs. Charles Murphy, or- jrainst. and Mrs. Billy Joe Sunderland was the vocalist. The bride wore a Victorian Diana Pauley, David B cakes Wed was bordered in lace and attached with a double veil to a Victorian style cap of sheer embroidery and pearls. She carried a cascade of white carnations and pink rosebuds on a lace-covered Bible. Charlotte Sunderland, cousin of the bride, was maid of honor and Joyce Campbell and Mrs. Lonnie Garrett were bridesmaids. Jan Lynn Warner, sister of the bridegroom, ·was the flowergirl. Charles Lee Warner was best man for his brother and ushers were Fred Fisher and Gary Jones. Tony Bishop, cousin of the bridegroom, was ringbearer. A reception was held in the church friendship hall. The couple will make their home in Tcavs Vallev. and have the space for one. Be careful about light portables, which may sacrifice mechanical efficiency or tend to vibrate excessively or "creep", and be sure the portable has a full-size work surface. Some users and servicemen say they actually prefer a cast iron machine to a featherweight as more stable and dependable, even if not as easy to handle and store. * * * THE FIRST TASK in choosing a machine is to know your own sewing needs. An expensive machine may attract you with the many decorative stitches and patterns it can make. In that case you would now own a complicated, delicate machine really more suitable for a very experienced seamstress, and that also requires a specialist in that model to repair. One long-time sewing machine expert advises that a zig zag machine with builWn buttonholer and built-in blind hem stitch is the most suitable for the average sewer. When you try out a machine, also make sure it will work on heavy materials such as denim as well as nylons and knits. This expert also points out that belt-driven motors cost less to repair, although gear-driven machines are faster. Especially check ease of use, including ease of removing and replacing the bobbin. Some machines have the bobbin on the side reached by a sliding back plate. Other bobbins are in front. All machines we have seen now have a built-in light. But some have an additional safety feature. If the light is off, the machine is off. Thus the machine won't accidentally operate if a small child steps on a foot control. * * * W A S H I N G MACHINES: These especially illustrate the practicality of sticking to the middle price line. Two-speed models do not cost much more than the cheapest one-speed machines. But they do provide sufficient flexibility in laundering without being as complicated or costly as some of the top-price deluxe models. You need to judge special features for your needs. Thus, a bleach dispenser may be more useful if your machine is in a remote location like the basement than nearby as in the kitchen or an upstairs laundry room. In general, the basically- useful features are hot, warm and cold settings: gentle and regular speeds for agitation and spin cycles; and a permanent-press setting. Even many of the medium-price washers now do have permanent-press settings. A safety switch that actually stops the machine if a child opens the lid is preferable to one that merely sounds a buzzer. Note also the horsepower rating. Some makers provide one-half horsepower motors not only for 16 and 18-pound washers but even for 14. Oth- ers may provide only one- third horsepower at 1G and 14-pound capacities. Just think of how all the clothes in your closet are going to look simply super with either one of these properly dressed casuals. But, don't just think about it...come in and try them on! ±, USE YOUR ARNOLD'S CHARGE OR BANKAMERICARD (A) SOFT SPORT Brown Kid $2099 (B) STRUTTER Brown Suede Two-Tone S 20" Shoes-for tashtonabl* women 236 CAPITOL STREET PHONE 342-1353 "When you can't squ into a size 12 anymore...
