CAIN Associated Press Auto Writer DETROIT (AP) — One of the Burprlslng things in the aulo in- dustiy tliis year is the heavy demand for foiu'-speed, floor- m'ounled synchromesh tranmis- slon systems. Some sources predict tliat over -lOO.OOO of these will be marketed during the 1964 model run. This would compare witli 284,000 in the 1963 model year and 188,000 in the '62 run. Measured in terms of percentage of total U. S. cars built, the four-speed market is not Rreat. Tile surprising thing is tliat at n" time when motorists are demanding more and more conveniences and luxui-y items, ranging from bucket seats to air conditioners, they show such willingness to give up the auto- malic transmission. Auto sources figure much of the demand comes from the so- called youUi market, tlie young drivers who literally like to shift for, tliemselves. i A spot check of the industry filiowcd these percentage of WANTADS DOTHEJOB! four-sp|ed floor * transmissions being turned QUt| by. various auto makers: f Corvair, 44 per'cent; Tempest, 9.5 per cent; Falcon, 8.2 per cent; Chevelle, 7.5 per cent and Dart, 5.3 per cent. Some cars, such as Imperial, Lincoln, Rambler, Cadillac and Thunderbird, do not offer the four-speed synrhromesh floor transmission. „ Chrysler Corp. car lines and the Clievy II made their first real told for the 4-on-floor market with their 1964 models. f The demand was of particular interest at Pontiac, which in 1938 pioneered the moving 6t the gearshift from the floor to the steering column. Today, it has i-elunied the gear shift to the floor ijn its Tempest line. Tlie installation rate on the 4- on-floor Tempest is almost triple what it was during the 1963 run. ————— Cuba Give Up Stolen Boat KEY! m:Sv7~T]a.

WASHINGTON (A?) - Tlie United States Beet Sugar Association estimates tlia't tlie U.S. Treasury has made a net "profit" o£ more than '$450 million on the government's sugar control program since 1937. The program is designed to stabilize 'prices and . supplies ' of sugar to flife mutual advantage of domestic producers i and consumers." It divided the U.S. market aitipng dorfie.-Stlc, offshore and .fore'ign producTirig' area^ 'under d '^fiota 6ysteni._ The- government' 'collects ' small ^xcise tax of about a Half cent A .pound on dpmestically prodifcfed as well as iijiported sugar. Some of the money obtained .through this.,tax is paid to dornestic producers of sugar beets and sugar cane who comply with minimum wage, child labor" and other conditions of the progi-am. TJiese payments are designed to supplement grower incomes from sale of their • beets and cane. .The t£ix collected on the su- gat, says the association, has Seen in excess of the amounts paid to giwvtrs and the cost of administering the pi-ogram. The extra money goes into ihe general fund^ of - the Treasury. • • i WASHINGTON (AP) -' Agriculture Department researchers report that linseed oil emulsions show promise for safe, low-cost use in curing concrete and protecting il against damage by freezing and thawing.

Haley Mills Explains The Beatles' Popularity By BOB THOMAS AP Movlo-Tclcvlslon Wrller HOLLY\V(X)D (AP) -At Uusl wo have someone to explain the Beatles — Haylcy Mills. They're simply marvelous," l-Iayley enthused, sharing the opinion ol her sister teen-agers In Britain and — sigh — tlie United States. Yes, but why are they siniiily marvelous? "They just are, that's nil." she replies. "I RUe ,<!s they ap- j)eal to tlie mass of girls because they are ordhmry. They're not vei7 good looking. Tliey're not very good musicians. Yet they mannge to manufacture a group sound that is rather appealing. "A year ago nobody knew who they wore — or c!ii;^cd. Now they've made so much money I don't suppose tlicy'd ever have 16 work again. Yet they have taken the whole thing witli good humor and they haven't lost the common ouch. "You know what their ambition is? One of them wants a beauty parlor. Another Xvants to run a garage You know that comnwn blood still pulses in their veins. Tlint's why youii.i; audiences like tliem. That, and (he hairdos." Haylcy hasn't met the Beatles, but she'd like to. Only one thing bugs her about tlieiiv. the shrieking females they attract. "I think those silly girls are absolutely revolting," slie scorned. Hayley was In town lo do a Danny Kayc television show with her father, John Mills, and to talk about "Tlie Chalk Gardon," which she also nvulc with her father, plus Deborah Kerr and Dame EdlUi Evans. "It was a challenge," she said, "because it was tlie fiift time I ever had a chance to really be nasty in a film. Cm usually so sunshiny tliat it gets sickening. But in 'The Chalk Garden' I could really be bad and — I suposfe I shouldn't jd- mit this — it seemed to come easy to mc." The film, which was made in England by Universal, marked Haylcy's first American movie iiway from Walt Disney. Slie li;is made five for Disney, from "Pollynnna" to^ the unreleased "Moonspinnoi-s," and has one more to go under her contract. Hayley will be 18 on April 18, and she continues to blossom into a lovely, lively young lady. Despite her advanced age, she ha.s no yen lo fly tlie nest. "Marriage?" she said. "Out of the question.
