If you've ever kept house you know it's true. In The Hoover beating, instead of being concentrated in a few violent strokes as with carpet beater or broom, is modified into a series of swiftly repeated air cushioned taps. This is accom plished by means of a totallynew appliance-the exclusive and patented Hoover Agitator illus trated here. Suction lifts the rug off the floor and floats it on a cushion of air while the Agitator gently flutters out all the embedded grit. Then strong suction draws all this dirt into the dust-tight Hoover bag. Simple, isn't it? Efficient, too. "You have to beat rugs to get them clean." The difference between The Hoover and a vacuum cleaner is that The Hoover does beat them "Positive Agitation" being a fea ture of the celebrated Model 700 Hoover and of the lower-priced Model 543 Hoover as well.
