Three color 7 3/4" x 11 1/2" ad that lets the lady of the house know that they now have machines that do the laundry for you. The ad has a picture of a lady sitting leisurely in a chair with a book on her lap and a smile on her face. The ad headline claims that this ad is "To the woman who could never think of reading like this on washday". The ad text talks about the old-fashioned washdays as lasting from the time the lady got up to the moment she chose to go to bed and was probably not done at that point. It also warns that washday will "steal more of Youth and Beauty than the other six days can hope to recover". It then teases that all the lady has to do is make a phone call to a laundry representative who will come rushing to her home to show her how to achieve this wonderful bliss.

Full color 9 1/2" x 14" ad for their new Imperial Automatic Washing Machine. There is a picture of a pink machine, also available in yellow or green, with the lid lifted and a female hand making an adjustment to the dial and the headline says it has the "Only Built-in Lint Filter plus 2-speed washing plus money-saving Suds-Miser!". There is a smaller picture of three ladies in the three monkey pose but each of these have their hands next to their eyes with the caption saying "See no lint...See no damage...See no waste". The ad has other pictures that show the Built-in Lint Filter being used, talks about the normal speed being 65 agitator strokes a minute, how the Gentle Speed is 42 strokes a minute with slower speeds available and how the Suds-Miser lwts you re-use hot, filtered suds safely.
