Page ten Small-car lineup is expanding DEARBORN, Mich. (AP) — After a year of delays, Ford Motor Co. plans to expand its small-car lineup by giving Lincoln-Mercury dealers their own version of the subcompact Ford Pinto early in 1975. But many Detroit area Lincoln-Mercury dealers say they'll be getting the new car, called the Bobcat, too late to cash in on the small car sales boom, which the dealers say peaked in the winter. "During the energy crisis, everyone wanted the Bobcat," said one dealer in the affluent Detroit suburb of Grosse Pointe, "but now we can't give our small cars away." According to Ward's Automotive Reports, an industry publication, Ford Motor Co. will assemble 3,000 Bobcats a month at its Meluchen, N.J., and San Jose, Calif., plants. The car currently is produced and sold only in Canada. Meanwhile, Ford is cutting back production of the Pinto at San Jose this fall from 54 to 40 units per hour. The company blamed the cutback on declining sales. At the height of the fuel shortage scare in January, small cars captured a record 54 per cent of the U.S. market, with the Pinto accounting for one out of every 10 small car sales. At the time, Ford dealers had only a 40-<lay supply of Pintos. But big car sales rebounded in the spring and summer at the expense of the small cars, which in August accounted for 49 per cent of domestic sales with the Pinto taking one of every 12 small car sales. The supply of Pintos by mid-August was for 96 days. Detroit area dealers said the auto maker had planned to introduce the Bobcat at its Lincoln-Mercury outlets early this year, but suddenly scrapped the plans without saying why. Stan Wilkn president of Star Lincoln-Mercury in suburban Southfield, said Ford delayed introduction of the Bobcat amid pressure from Ford Division dealers who feared the cars would cut into their Pinto sales. "We cried for the Mustang II (sold by Ford dealers) but we didn't get it," Wilk said. "We also pressured for the Bobcat, but we wanted it sooner." The smallest domestic-made car now sold by Lincoln-Mercury dealers is the compact Comet, companion of the Ford Maverick. Rock brawl victims file complaints HONOLULU (AP) — The alleged victims of beatings by security guards during a rock music concert last month will have to return and file formal complaints before police can act, an official says. Managers of two rock music groups—War and Black Oak Arkansas—told newsmen in Los Angeles Tuesday that several musicians were beaten and threatened with sawed-off shotguns during the "Hawaii Jam" rock concert nelcThere Aug. 31. Asst. Police Chief Harold Falk said a sheriff in Arkansas told him by telephone Tuesday that the Black Oak Arkansas had filed complaints against the concert promoters and thek security force. Falk said police could make no criminal charges in the case until the victims returned to Honolulu to swear out formal complaints. Steve Gold, personnel manager for War, told Los Angeles reporters he was considering a negligence suit against the Honolulu police. He said officers at the scene failed to intercede when the musicians were being beaten and kicked by hired security guards. Falk said the department was investigating the role special duty police officers played during the disturbance. "But there is now nothing to mdicate any misconduct by the policemen there," Falk said. He said earlier the investigation of the disturbance at the Hawaii Raceway Park had not turned up any links to Hawaii's crime syndicate. HOPK (ARK.)
