Iff UVVv Will IJ.KMis Three Types of WASHERS The Question Is Often Asked, "Why Does the People Power Company 'Sell Different Kind of Washsrt? To meet the requirements of laundering at home, ' washing machines have had to serve two different general classes of homes. One is the home with stationary tubs installed and the other' is the home where such tubs are not part of the fixtures,. Where stationery tubs are installed, there are two or sometimes three of them if there is room enough. Thus i a washing may be done in one and rinsed and blued in the other one or two. We have found in the : V o s s . Triple Tub Washer a combina t i o n a waghina: ' I machine, two ' other tubs and a rack td hold the clothes basket all served by an electric wringr er. This com bination serves admirably where there are no stationary tubs. The washer and the tubs7 are all self-draining, the bench the right height for easy work and the i washing is easy and careful with the clothes and thor ough. , The Voss Triple Tub V Washer, as ilustrated, sell for - $135,001' The construction of the entire machine is strong and substantial throughout. For this typeof an electric washing machine, we know of none better. - The cylinder type of washing machines serves in locations where there are stationary tubs. Cyl inder., type machines are known to the, trade as " "open" type, ' and "cabi net", type. You can read- v ily recognize either when you see one. The "open" type of the cylinder washer is. well represented by the Cof field, illustrated to the left. We have, been handling ' the Coffield for several months and in that time we have learned to like it so well that we never hesi- tate a moment m recom mending it to anyone": The washing principle is sound 1 and complete, the con struction is of the best, all working parts are free running and easily acces sible if ever necessary. The Coffield is the washer that makes " wteshday smiles" and not "washday blues". '-We sell it for $127.00. - - . : - "A a fine example of the cabinet type of cylin der washers we sell the Eden, The Eden has a di rect drive from the motor to both the cylinder and the wringer thus no belts are required nor is a slip ping clutch possible. The Eden has a visible water level guage and a sedi ment zone which keeps the washing water always clean and dirt free.
