II, in Star A car thnt has no clutch or clutch pedal! A car that is capable f "thinking" and acting for itself to the extent ol shifting gears autmatically bnck and fourth through four speed ranges! A car which needs only the use of accelerator pedal, hnrke and steeringwhoel to control it in !)9 per cent of all driving! A car with a motor which cannot stall, and which responds with all the flexibility of electricity 01 steam! In the most sensational announcement made in the automo-.ive Mi- du.sb-y in years, Oldsmobih claims these advantages through their new Hydra-Matic Drive, which will be available on all three series cars which Olds is offering for 1940. Tho new drive is the product of eight years of intensive work by (he Oldsmnbilj engineering staff, and it will be manufactured for Olds by a newly created division of General Motors in a special 53.000.000 plant in Detroit. It will bo an exclusive Oldsmobile feature for HMO. "Hydra-Matic Drive simplifies car control so amazingly thnt we believe it will mark as decisive an advance in car resign as did the electric stlf- starler or four wheel brakes," says C. L. McCucn. general manager of Oldsmobile. "Briefly, il consists of a liquid flywheel combined with n fully .lutoma- tic transmission, which is the outgrowth of the automatic safety transmission brought out by Olds more than two years ago. The liquid flywheel when combined with the automatic transmission eliminates the mechanical clutch and achieves many things thai have been sought for years by automatic engineers. The simplicity, flexibility and freedom from wear inherent in the licjuid flywheel have been ci.minon knowledge among cn- ors for 50 years, but mil until I ha terfcction of this automatic transmission lias il been pot-siblo to take full advantage of them. "Most noticeable simplification of driving controls in a car equipped with Hydra-Matic Drive, is of course the absence of a clutch pedal. The loft foot has no other duty than to control the headlight b?:im bulton in night chiving. The right foot controls the accelerator and foot brake as in the past. Under the steerwheel is a lovci', with four positions indicated on a quadrant, indicating "Neutral." "High." "Low," Reverse." 'To start the car moving and get ••way. just four oprations are required. Turn Ihe ignition key, step on the .'tarter, move the lever under tho wheel from "Neutral" to "High" position, step on the accelerator, and (lie Quick Conquest (Continued from Page One) ioning the shocks of war to trade. Turkey Reassured by Ifaly On the 24th, Italy made a significant move. She withdrew garrisons in the Dodecanese Islands, demilitarized Ihe Albanian border. This looked very much like a tangible move to reassure Turkey and the countries of the 'eastern Balkans and to give impetus to a Balkan neutral bloc to be backed l.y Italy. Turkey and Russia. Such a bloc might be strong enough to iirevent further aggression in that direction by Hitler through Hungary, yot keep the neutrals at peace. Turkey, though loyal to its British leanings, has also gone to gerat pains In stress friendship with Russia Both Britain and Russia are vitally interested in control of the all-Turkish Dardanelles. Italy, which avoided the danger of being forced into war at the oulset. basks in a profitabel trade with England and France, which those countries have been nt pains to keep profitabel fro her. ilaly has hinted at new policies after the conquest of Poland wus completed and might strike through Yugoslavia ;-,t British-dominated Greece, throwing her lot with a Hitler invasion of Rumania through Hungary. It is un| likfl.v. ns such u blow would bring Turkey, the rest of the Balkans, and j perhaps even Russia in against Germany and Italy. But as (he first month nf war ends. Ilaly faces some sort of .". decision, which will no doubt depend on whether Hitler tries to gc liirther east, or turns west toward France. . "Diplomacy has to adapt itself to what happens on the battle front," mice said Lord Grey, British wartime I'reign minister.

The whole process requires exactly a dozen fewer operations by the driver than with n standard clutch and transmission. Virtually all driving is done with the lever in "High. Low" used only in deep sand or in climbing or descending an extremely steep bill, where il is desired to keep the car in low gear. "Thus, merely (ho pressure of the foot on the accelerator controls a speed range from a mile an hour to full throttle If quick acceleration is needed to pass slower moving vehicles on the road, it is only necessary to press the accelerator all the way down, and instantly the gear change's from fourth to third, or "pick-up" gear, which is the equivalent of a roar u.xle ratio of 5.25 to I. Partially releasing the accelerator returns the gear to fourth. "Most striking, however, is the demons! ration of flexibility afforded by the performance of Hydra-Matic Drive on a hill. The new Olds can be driven up a hill at a snail's pace, and even stopped on the steepest hill without using the brake. By slightly depressing the accelerator the car can be held by the power of the motor partially applied through the liquid flywheel. Nor will this result in any injury or wear.

Miller, graduate student of George Washington university. The discovery is commercially important because it was formerly believed that cedar trees carried only one kind of rust to attack apples and tho attacks of all three- occur all through the central and eastern United .States. The story that would be worth the SKI.OOO prize is why these rusts have to spend part of their time on cedar trees and part on apples. This is a necessity if the rusts are to live. There is still another road to fame open to those who study the cedar's Christmas decorations. No one ever has been nblc to cultivate these rusts "in vilro." that is, arlificaHy in a test tnbr. To do htat would be worth a few minor science prizes. the boy opened his mouth to yawn as the judge came past him, and "" got first •"• : -*- Prize for Discovery of Rust 1 Science Wants Explamr of Apple Rust Growing on Cedar Trees Uy HOWARD \V.
