BUT WHAT A y I Here are two Hoovers-alike in every way but one. Yet what a difference there is between them! One has the patented beating-sweeping brush. From the other the brush has been removed. Without this brush The Hoover would cost much less to make, and you could buy it for less. But after you have proved that rugs must be beaten to be thoroughly clean*... would you be willing to sacrifice cleanliness for the few dollars you might save? Gently but thoroughly, the Hoover beating sweeping brush taps loose and vibrates to the surface the heavy sharp-edged dirt which cuts rug nap if permitted to remain embedded. * TO PROVE RUGS NEED Because it does keep rugs perfectly clean The Hoover is guaran teed to make them wear many years longer. As it Beats, The Hoover DIFFERENCE! Sweeps, gathering up even the stubbornest cling ing litter and hair. And it Air-cleans, too. But, unlike vacuum cleaners, it employs air only to remove what air has deposited-the light surface dust on rugs and furnishings--and to suction into the bag the heavy, gritty dirt and litter that have been beaten out and swept up. Remove the beating-sweeping brush from The Hoover and it becomes an ordinary vacuum cleaner. Replace the brush, and The Hoover is at once distinct. There is only one Hoover! Is it surprising that there are more Hoovers in use today than any other make of cleaner? No! But it is significant! BEATING: Turn over a corner of a rug;with the handle of an ordinary table-knife, or something of equal weight, give the under or warp side 15 to 25 sharp taps and watch the dirt dance out from the nap depths onto a piece of paper. Feel the destructive character of this grit. This is the dirt your pres ent cleaning methods have missed, and that beating has dislodged. Correct use of The Hoover causes this embedded dirt to be vibrated to the surface by the rapid, gentle beating of the Hoover brush, as powerful suction lifts the rug from the floor and draws all the beaten-out, swept-up dirt into the dust-tight bag It pays to know the difference between a Hoover and a vacuum cleaner.
