Deluxe units come decorated in a soft, neutral beige material. This covering may be removed and replaced with material blending or coverings or upholstery in less than five minutes and with less than a yard of material. Increased cooling capacity, higher humidity removal and lower operating costs for all new units is obtained through the redesigned air mixing chamber that distributes room air and incoming hot, dirty, muggy air evenly over all the cooling and dehumidifying surfaces. The bigger air mixing chamber plus the enlarged "king-sized" cooling coils in 1954 IH air conditioners means that larger room areas can be cooled and humidity lowered in a shorter length of time at reduced operating costs. Featured on all -models in the 1954 line are the new glass fiber filters and "washing" systems to j remove greater amounts of dust, dirt, and pollen from the air. Other comfort features included with four of the five new models are built-in automatic temperature control to maintain uniform room temperature, improved f ingerti|' control positions for easy reading, j and six comfort settings—cooling' NEW I-H CONDITIONER — International-Harvester's new room ' air conditioners are designed to blend in with the homeowner's interior decoration scheme.

New York Sees Better Times City As Confident- Mow As It Was Jittery Thret Months Ago By SAM DAWSON NEW YORK C4V-New York City is as confident today as it was jittery three months ago. Businessmen here think the bottom was touched in the early days of tins month. True, they look for a fairly quiet summer. But they seem confident that the fall will bring sure if modest gains. In some things—like unemployment and the cost of living, both of which are up here—New York City just now is going counter to the national trend. In others—like retail sales and construction, which are fairly high here—it pretty much typifies what's happening most places in the United States. In still others—like foreign trade and investment and bank loans, where the decline is noticeably slower—New Yorkers like to think their town is the bellwether. Latest government figures for the nation as a whole show that the number now- collecting jobless benefits is lower than at any time since the first of February. But unemployment continued to rise in April in New York City, largely due to the ills of the garment and textile trades. But here, too, New Yorkers now think they've seen the worst. The synthetic fiber market remains mostly dull. But New York's Worth Street cotton merchants cite the recent flurry of orders for third and fourth-quarter deliveries of cotton prints and broad cloths as offering the hope at least that the textile industry may at last be working itself out of its long downward cycle. The garment industry says that the rising price tendency for woolens and worsteds means both the working off of inventories and an increase in consumer demand. If so, it could lead to more activity in New York's teeming garment section. It still costs plenty to live here. While the government's cost of living index dropped'^slightly for the nation in its current report, the index for New York City rose slightly below the national average, medical care costs rose. Even so, Gothamites note their index is still slightly, because food prices and so there must be more expensive places. Cot Mothers Pups POTTSTOWN, Pa.
