THIS IS A TALE OF A SHIRT The NAS Navy Exchange
Laundry has really rone modern. The tale of a shirt in the new
$10,000 unit which "does up" a shirt at the rate of one every
minute, is shown, in the above and right photos. The six-section
unit operates on the assembly plan, with sleeves (left, above)
pressed first; followed by pressing of the cuffs; then the collar:
the yoke; the front and back pressed simultaneously (left in right
photo); and finally step No. 6, with the shirt folded over the
usual cardboard Insert. Two operators switch the garments from
section to section, with all else done automatically. The ironing
board, like the kitchen range, is fast becoming obsolete in this
electronics age.Laundry. *
