Tom McCahill evaluates the automobile industry for Mechanix Illustrated. Recently, he took out an SST hardtop equipped with a 343 cu. in. typhoon V-8 for an e\hausti\e series of road tests. How did our lixcitement Machine perform? "In readability and performance, it would top most of the newer specialty'cars. There's absolutely no plowing and little body roll. The whole feel of the car. when going over ruts or across dirt roads, is excellent." What about comfort? "It's eMremely'comfortable and relaxing to drive. In straight-line driving the SST is as comfortable as the Jell-O specials." How about Rebel's new four-link rear suspension? "Of all the new sporty-type cars, as they come from the showroom, Rebel has by far the best and safest suspension of the whole kit and caboodle." And the looks? "As sharp in appearance as a thousand- dollar bill. And from a cost angle. Rebel's not overpriced." This is your kind of excitement, created by American Motors. A compatn that has created an entire line of six-passenger Excitement Machines that give you more excitement for the money. See your American Motors Rambler Dealer.

These three DeKalb hybrids offer the range of maturity and breeding to perform best In north central Iowa conditions. 2. DEKALB XL-325 DEKALB XL-45 3. DEKALB XL-346 Earliest of the group — a high population hybrid — short stalked with girthy ears and deep kernels. Doyle Smith of Liwton in Woodbury County harvested 163.4 bu. of XL-32S from a me»ur«d acre in 1966. Hi planted 20" rows with a harvest itand of over 29,000. Smith laid, "My XL-325 came up to an excellent itand and itindablllty was good." Everybody's modern hybrid — the short, high population, high fertilization, tough-stalked strong shanked hybrid, capable of combating stress situations and keeping that "ear on every stalk". Dean Vander Heiden of Wheatland, Iowa, who had the flrit 200 bushel yield In Iowa (215.05 bu.l from a measured acre in 1966, and who was the Master Corn Crower'i Contour winner In 1965 (174.74 bu.), raised XL-45 alone to get hit 1966 yield and In combination with XL-346 for hit 1965 yield. Dean says, "I custom harvested about 35,000 bushed of different brands and found XL-45 and XL-346 to be definitely in a clan by themselves. I like fheir ability to take high populations and stand under advene conditions. I had no dropped ears. In my opinion, they have no equal." Latest of the trio — 3 to 5 days behind XL-45 — XL-346 is quite similar to XL-45 in its characteristics. It has the same ability to take high pressure situations and to harvest easily. Top yield in 1965 was Clyde Might's average 200+ bushels per acre on 388 acres. To obtain it, Might planted XL-346 and XL-45 in alternating blocks. Top yield in 1966 In DeKalb'i 200 Bushel Club, by Emanuel Welbert of Colorado, was 217.9 bushels of XL-45. However, Welbert, in the tame field, had an unofficial machine-checked yield on XL-346 which made 226.3 bushels per acre. Weibert liked XL-346 for hii 20" rowa with in ease of harvesting, good standability, and desirable ear height. BIG NAME for BIG YIELDS "OIKALB" it > R«|1iltrtd Irtnd Nim«.
