Bendix Offers Combination Washer, Dryer Duomatic Does Both Jobs in Continuous Operation The Bendix Duomatic is a revolutionary new home laundry appliance that dries as well as washes in one continuous automatic operation. It has been hailed as the successor to the Bendix automatic washer first unveiled 15 years ago. The Duomatic is operated by two simple timer controls. After the operator has put in clothes and soap and set the two timers, the unit washes, rinses, damp dries and fluff dries the eight-pound load completely automatically. Only 36 Inches wide, it will launder an average mixed load in just 68 minutes. The Duomatic may be used separately as either a washer or dryer or as both and requires no more plumb- Ing than an automatic washer. A water temperature selector permits the operator to use the Duomatic's 220-volt "Magic Heater" during the washing period. This will raise water temperature as much as 25 degrees. The Duomatic uses the patented Bendix tumble-action washing method. An optional automatic speed soak period can precede washing. The wash period is followed by three alternate rinse and spin dry cycles. A blower forces heated air through the tumbling cylinder containing the clothes. The warm moist air leaves the cylinder and goes through a dehumidifier which cools and dries the air while washing lint and moisture down the drain. The same air is continually washed, qxied and recirculated. There is no lint trap to clean. DUCHESS WASHER — Dick Osborne demonstrates a Duchess Semi-Automatic Washer, on display at his furniture store on E. Main Street.

MAIN PHONE 3-3221 Coal Miner Weaves As Profitable Hobby TRINIDAD, Colo. UP) — Weaving rugs, blankets and sweaters is a profitable hobby for a husky coal miner, Gilbert Fernandez, who learned his vocation in the depression days of 1931, when he attended a weaving class at the Valdez, Colo., YMCA. Since then, Fernandez has woven about 1,600 articles — nearly all of which he sold. One rug went for $150. His work is patterned after the Chimayo Indian style of weaving. His patterns are in his mind — never on paper. He uses nearly $50 worth of wool yarn and from 250 to 300 hours in completing a 5 by 7 rug or blanket. He has won high awards at the Colorado State Fair and Los Angeles County Fair for his weaving. There's also "A Report of the Research and Development of an Automatic Frankfurter Skinner."
