low to"Feature Everything New tor Home Almost, -200,000 products stand ready in Chicaigo's Mc- Corniick Place for more than 35 ,006, industry members viho will "attend the 36th NHMA National Hbiisewar6s Exhibit tomorrow through Friday. Open only to the manufacturers and merchandisers of housewares, the Exhibit will be the biggest trade show ever held, according to Dolph Zapfel, secretary of the National Housewares Manufacturers Assn. Buyers from all 50 states, Canada and many foreign countries will select the housewares at this show for which consumers are expected to spend more than $6 billion this year. A record 988 exhibitors fill every available square foot of exhibit space in huge McCormick Place. New Products Information supplied by exhibitors indicate that there will be more than 500 new and improved products rang ing from electric frypans for greaseless cooking to outdoor serving and decorative accessories. New products specifically listed by exhibitors include: Portable thermoelectric refrigerators that operate without conventional motor and freezing system, an oven rack for fat-free roasting, and a spoon - and - spread combination for putting jelly on bread. For the home that has everything except a patio, one housewares manufacturer will introduce a portable outdoor entertainment center, complete with balloon tires, a bar that includes an automatic ice maker, charcoal rotisserie cooker with heat indicator and upper and lower grills, a dining table designed to seat six people, and a price tag of $2,700. Two Thumbs Hot mitts in 1952 will come equipped with two thumbs so that they may be worn on either hand; picture hangers have now become one-piece, instead of nail and hook, for greater accuracy in placement, and paint brushes designed to fit varied kinds of paints soon will be on the market. Bouncing bottle caps no longer need disturb the host attempting to mix a quiet drink, for an electric can opener comes equipped with a magnetic bottle cap catcher. The cold morning dread of getting out of a warm bed to" close the window is being eliminated by one manufacturer showing a battery-operated window vent that is thermostatically controlled. An electric clock to be shown at the NHMA National House­ wares Exhibit is designed for use interchangeably on the wall or on a table. Quick Clean-Up Non-scratch scrub pads made of plastic wool are recommended by the manufacturer for use on coated pans and to prevent cleaning damage to other surfaces. A wide - spread wet mop with a built-in hanger forj quick drying will be shown the nation's housewares buyers, as will many cook-and- serve electric appliances. The lady of the house no longer need stop her work to dry her hair, for a "shoulder bag" dryer permits freedom of movement while in use. Another manufacturer is presenting a head hood designed to fit any standard dryer, and another a portable hair dryer with electrically operated attachments for manicuring. For Green Grass The yard-man also will have things easier in 1962. Lawn sprinklers equipped with a flow meter measure the water delivered to the lawn, then shuts off the unit; an electronic moisture meter measures both water and fertilizer content of the soil, and a traveling sprinkler rolls up 200 feet of hose as it moves along, and shuts itself off when its job is done. Iced tea glasses are being offered in giant size for big drinkers of the summer beverage, and a new automatic toaster comes in stainless steel. Lati-iced shelves provide a new decorative motif for the bathroom, and counter stools have acquired an "hour glass" look. An electric blender is being presented with removable cutting unit which can be used on standard fruit jars. Two - toned salt and pepper shakers are offered in the letters "S" and "P" to prevent mistakes in use of these sea- soners. Another manufacturer has moved the picnic jug pouring spout onto the cap, and another has added an automatic pulp ejector to a fruit and vegetable juicer. Germ Killers Shelf lining and edging comes in treated surfaces designed to kill germs, and there are wastebaskets in Mother Goose designs to amuse the children. Drapes at the living room windows, or anywhere else in the house, can now be moved at the touch of an electric button, and a standby emergency light that turns on only when electric power fails is available. Several manufacturers are introducing battery operated lawnmowers as well as other power units with vacuum action designed to clean the lawn as they cut the grass. Wet weather grass seed makes it possible to sow in the rain, and there is a new line of chemical pellets for insertion in the garden hose to provide easy fertilizing, dog.and insect-proofing of the lawn. "Toasting" Meat A vertical electric broiler cooks meat like a toaster toasts bread, a ceramic tile center in a stainless steel hostess tray serves as a hot plate or- cutting surface, and foam backed place mats will keep their desired place on the table. Flower fly-squatters, chemically operated bug traps, fruit - shaped candles, and a "black light" killer are included in manufacturers' equipment for fighting insects. A drip-dry clothing rod for use over the bathtub has been designed with a pressure feature that holds it in place without wall fasteners, and a side - saddle kitchen knife holder keeps the handles at the side for easier grasping and greater safety. "Bread like mother used to make" is now easy, according to the manufacturer of a crank-operated mixer, and some char­ coal for outdoor cooking is now synthetic. No-drip, no-splatter paint to make do-it-yourself decorating neater is another new product being shown buyers at the National Housewares Exhibit, where they also will see lace-on covers for outdoor furniture, garden trowels with weeding teeth and depth marker for use in planting, and electrified roses for use as a night light. Every room in the house, the basement and the yard are served and decorated by the new products to be seen by the nation's buyers in Chicago's McCormick Place this week, and after the trade show in retail stores across the country.
