The Diamonds just moved into their new home on South Main Street, so they have barely had time to really test their new Caloric built- ins which are shown above with Mrs Diamond and M-month-old daughter, Marcie.

And another convenient feature, she says, is the all-porcelain interior which is so easy to clean. All the pieces come apart and can be removed from the oven for cleaning. She chose the satin metal finish, one of the most popular of the several different finishes available. Thermogas Co. of Algona Phone 16 - Algona So. Phillips St.
