HERMAN CLAXTON'S NU-GLOS
|HERMAN CLAXTON ORIGINATES POLISH
"Nu-Glos" on Market;
Herman Claxton, electrician of this community, gets the credit for the invention of a remarkable polish product called "Nu-Glos." When young Claxton was studying chemistry at Grove High School he stumbled on the formula for this polish. He conceived of treating polishing cloths with the preparation and selling them. With Ed Manker of Memphis he formed the Southwestern Products company, rented factory space here, employed workers, and now the trade name "Claxmans Nu-Glos" is to be seen on the striking orange and black containers and display cards in garages and hardware stores through out the south.
The polishing cloths, which come in attractive tin containers are said to be desirable for polishing automobile bodies and furniture. Placed on a polish it is also admirable for floor surfaces.
Mr. Claxton stated that the sales were much in advance of the output of the
small factory but that he hoped to increase the output after the first of the year.
