tAGK POUR BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS MONDAY, MAY 31, 1954 HOTPOINT LEADER — New l ! /2 horsepower room air conditioner introduced by Hotpoint Co. Is deluxe style leader of 1954 line of air conditioners now available in 4 sizes and 14 different models. Air velocity of new units ranges from 900 to 1200 feet per minute with a room penetration of 30 feet, the highest efficiency rating for any air conditioner now available. Hotpoint air conditioners, in addition to filtering, cooling or heating room air, automatically mixing any desired combination of fresh and room air, will exhaust up to 200 cubic feet per minute of stale air, the largest capacity in the industry. Depending on size, 1954 Hotpoint air conditioners have rotary or pushbutton controls, auxiliary heating, automatic thermostats and replaceable filters. The top model (4E2150) with 3 adjustable air grilles will cool, warm or ventilate a small 5 room house. All units are encased in weatherproof metal shells that easily slide into the room like a desk drawer for inspection and servicing. Cooled Air Also Means Better Health Most people think of air conditioning primarily in terms of cool comfort. That's a good reason for wanting air conditioning, a much better reason than you may think- You should be cool when the weather's hot—for comfort, for efficiency, and for something more important. The feeling of comfort and the renewed zest for work you -1 ,ave in a properly air-conditioned •om are real evidence of your own /ell-being—signs that your body is .vorking easily. To work well, the human ma- chine has to maintain its own internal temperature within fairly narrow limits. Long ago men learned to help keep their bodies warm by clothes, shelter, food and heat. But until lately men did very little to help keep their bodies cool In hot weather, the body-cooling job falls to a complicated system of pumps, pipes, radiators, and evaporators in our bodies themselves j —the heart, circulatory system,; lungs and skin. It's a marvelous system, but when the surrounding I temperature is hot—or' there's too • much moisture in the air—your j body's cooling system has to work! hard. .

Five Sizes of Air Conditioners In ]4 Models Offered by Hotpoint Five sizes of room air conditioners, available are styled, in 14 different models have been introduced fay Hotpoint Co. All models are styled in a blue-gray that will match any scheme of interior decorations. For the first time, Hotpoint will market its air conditioners nationally, following 1963 tests made in live key sales areas. ' New Hotpoint air conditioners range in size from a compact % H. P. size to a deluxe 1% H. P. unit, controlled by pushbuttons. Air velocity ranges from 900 to 1200 ft. .per minute, with a room penetration of 30 ft., the highest circuit- tion capacity now available. Thisj gives a marked cooling effect throughout a room without objectionable rooms drafts. All Hotpoint air conditioners will exhaust stale room air during winter and summer months at a rate of 200 cubic feet per minute, the most efficient rating now available on any air conditioner. Simplified manual controls let the user select any mixture of fresh and cooled room air desired. Two models also have auxiliary heating units to tern- j per chill spring and fall air, and •warm incoming outside air during ,winter months. Depending on size, 1954 models have either rotary switches or pushbutton controls. The smaller unite are adjusted by means of a dial with three settings, while the larger models have pushbutton controls, similar to those introduced by Hotpoint on electric ranges. The small ^ H. P. unit has one air grille and the large 1% H. P. unit has three adjustable air grilles. The grilles can be rotated to direct air circulation, as desired by the • user. Several models are equipped with a thermostat and a built-in heating unit. The pushbutton controls give the user a selection of cooling, circulation, heating, high blower and low blower. All models are equipped with filters, which can be cleaned and reused or replaced as necessary. The new Hotpoint line is engineered so that units can be quickly installed without bolts or nails. This is an important feature for the large rental market, involving both houses and apartments. All units project less than one foot into the room, a factor which simplifies furniture arrangements and room decorative patterns. All models will be available in dealer stores in early 1954, while the -% H. P. unit will be available by next spring. With less than 6 per cent of the world's land area, the United States has 29 per cent of the earth's railway mileage. Stage King To Become Pharaoh By BOB THOMAS HOLLYWOOD (ffl —How are movie deals made? Here's one that was accomplished between acts of a Broadway musical. Cecil B. DeMille summoned the press to attend a luncheon and meet.Yul Brynner, who is appearing in Los Angeles in "The King and I." The 72-year-old director has signed the actor to play Ramses n in his forthcoming epic "The 10 Commandments." He told how he encountered Brynner. "About a year and a half ago, I was in New York," he related. "My granddaughter and my secretary were urging me to see a show called 'The King and I.' I didn't want to go, but they were so persistent that I had to. When we arrived at the theater, they sat on each side of me, so they could nudge m« if I fell asleep. "During the first act, they wondered why I said nothing. I couldn't. I was seeing a rare theatrical experience — a performance of dramatic integrity." Quick Deal When the curtain went down, DeMille wanted to know who played the King. When told it was Yul Brynner, he said "What is that?" He had never heard of the actor, whose name indeed sounds like a Christmas log or something". The director strode backstage, spoke to Brynner for a few minutes and assigned him the role of the Pharaoh. They shook hands on the deal. "Then we turned the details over to his agents and to Paramount and we both ran," said DeMille. Brynner told the story from his side: "I had been warned that DeMille was in the theater. That merely added to the nervousness I get every time the half-hour warning is given before a performance. But after the show started, I was too busy to think about it. I wasn't able to see his reaction. ... "In four years, I have never had a visitor between acts of the show —except Mr. DeMilie. There are only 7 J /2 minutes between acts. But he started talking and I was impressed by the tremendous amount of research that had been done on his picture.

The picture starred Scott Brady and Brynner played the heavy. "I never did find out what the picture was about," he said. "I'd just report to the set every day, and they'd give me some pink sheets of paper with my lines on them. "I never saw the picture when it came out. When I was playing 'The King and I 1 in Cincinnati, I asked the Paramount man there if he could find me a print. He did. The picture wasn't bad."
