Aluminum Colorful For lawn turntiture. aluminum has long been the choice , :or reasons of utility. But this year, it is also a winner for reasons ol style, says the Aluminum Association. People have for years liked the fact that aluminum lawn furniture is light and easy to handle. They've also liked the fact that nothing bad happens to it it you forget to take it in tor the night. Rain won't rust it. But in recent years a new appeal has been added. Aluminum furniture is available with new lines, in new styles and very important these days: color. Premium lines this year include aluminum painted white or in pastel colors, including outdoor greens and another exclusive design in . . .

The device, now-available on the highest-priced Ford Motor company cars, will be made available on lower priced cars. Another feature to be offered on more cars will be the so-called variable ratio steering, originally developed by Cadillac but now available on other cars as optional equipment. This is a system which offers high ratio steering on straight roads where quick turning is not required, but sharply reduces steering ratio as the steering wheel is turned further. It has strong safety overtones, offering the best compromise between turnpike driving comfort and sports-car control in tight places. This item probably will become standard equipment eventually. Bias-belt fiber glass tires will be used on more and more cars in 1970. They are last replacing the radial ply options offered on 19tiS's and 1969 s. In tact, in the General Motors line, only Buick is still offering the radials as optional tires on the '69s. The others have switched to the bias-belts, first introduced on Pon-tiacs. Highly likely for 1970 is the option of a whole new tire concept developed by Firestone, its so-called LXX tire which is different in construction than present tires. The tire height is reduced and the tire width is increased. But instead of the present 14-and 15-inch wheels, the LXX tire uses 16-and 17-inch wheels. Firestone claims longer wear with these tires than any conventionally-built tires. And because the wheels are bigger in diameter, this affords room to make brakes bigger, a huge safety plus This tire already is available on GM's high performance Camaro Z-28. Three new cars will be introduced as 1970 models. All are mmicars designed to compete with the foreign imports. Ford plans to introduce its entry early in 1969. General Motors and American Motors are scheduled to introduce theirs along with the other 1970 cars, in late summer. GM's minicar probably will be accompanied by elimination of its Corvair and the AMC model probably will replace the American. DETROIT 'L I'll - There hasn't been a new ear buyer yet who hasn't wondered a little or worried about what the next vear's models would be like. This time, the answer is the 1970 automobiles will look much like the 19fi9's. Prices will be about the same, too after several years of rising prices. Aside from stiffer requirements on hydrocarbon emissions for engines, lew new costly safety 'features are required for the 1970 models by the National Highway Safety Bureau. However, there may be some safety features that will be made optional equipment on the '70s. such as skid-resistant rear wheel braking. And we can look for some new tire developments that will include some safety fallout. As for styling, all lines of cars are pretty well set for 1970 The companies spent heavily to restyle the medium priced lines and top-ol-the-line regular-sized cars for 1969. The so-called intermediates, such as Ford Torino, the Che-velle. and Plymouth Roadrun-ner. were set in 1968 and aren't due for change at least until 1971. And that goes for most of the sporty models, too. Changes will be confined mostly to front and rear grilles and interior trim which can be done at relatively small cost. I'nder the skin, however, there may be a number of changes. For one thing. Ford. Chrysler and American Motors will equip all their cars with transmission and steering locks along with the ignition, iiut this is not likely to add to their prices because General Motors already has done this on its '69 s and the other companies can hardly charge a higher price. Farther ahead, perhaps not in 1970. there's the prospect that the key may disappear altogether, and substituted tor it a coded card slipped into a slot. These could offer far more combinations than today's keys and virtually eliminate the theft problems created by today's master-key possibilities. In 1970. there probably will be considerable proliferation gracious living ZJi-Z.ZT hum mm ' mm "i r RIBBON AND BOWS - Opening of the Flamboyant Restaurant and Lounge in the Sans Souci Hotel, Palm Beach, was officially done with a snip of the scissors by Tom Ferguson, Gov.
