Les,
It seems to be a bit of a different configuration for the rectifier tube.
In my estimation based upon following the circuit diagram, the selenium rectifier is there to provide a discharge path for the 80 UF cap that is in series withe the plate of the 35Z5.

Why there is a series cap, is way above my pay grade !
