fAOl TWO BLYTHEVTLLB (ARK.) COURIER HEWS MONDAY, MAY 81. 1954 -Tj Room Air Conditioners Easy to Use When you're shopping around for cooling comfort to make those hot summer days more confortable and carefree, remember that a room itir conditioner is far more than just a cooling device, and much more than just a window fan. It's a unit that cools, circulates, ventilates, cleans the air and removes excess moisture. The air filter in your room conditioner picks up dust, dirt and pollen from the outside air, and, generally, gives not only comfort and conveniences but healthier liv- ing as well. The filter in your air conditioner, incidentally, mu&t be replaced now and then in order to assure best operating efficiency. But changing filters, happily, is a simple job and can be done in just a few seconds by anyone, without any special tools. Using the room air conditioner is easy too—as simple as setting a clock. The control knobs are plainly marked so you can select the room climate you prefer.
