AUGUST 16, 1989 BLYTHEVILLB, (ARK.) COURIER NEWS "Showcase Car 0:0 Future" H- Engines Also Forecast; Every Car Is Own Showcase BY R, C. SACKETT NKA. Service Special Correspondent • DETROIT, All?. 11 - Plastic safety glass In the automobile of 18-10 points the way to all plastic body construe tic n by 1945 us the newest development of automotlbe engineering. If the development e:ntlnucs— and Detroit gives evidence that it I will—.ycur '45 model may be n i transparent, rear-driven number with all moving parts, including, the driver, visible from the out-' aide. Plastic bodies insy be either opaque cr transparent. Without telling anybody about it, Henry Peril probably will start putting plastic trunk doors and plastic hoods on his cars before long. The experimental work has been finished. There is a German-made car In New York with the entire bcdy of plastic material. The new low- priced German car that Hitler has been talking about will have a plastic body. Much cheaper than steel. FISHER DISPLAYS TRANSPABENT CAR At the Wcrld's Pair in New York, JVner Body has a car on display- with a complete transparent plastic body. Fenders, hoot!, radiator, doors, and all sheet metal In the bcdy are transparent. The car is as strong as a steel-bodied car and can be driven. Briggs Body in Detroit has a car "with a plastic transparent roof in place of the solid steel roof. Plastics can be bent and shaped as well as steel. When they find out hov,' to harden the surface they will make windshields and window, glass o! plastics. Again it will be lighter and cheaper. Also It can be curved and bent in a way that emmet be done with glass. That would make possible a V-lype windshield without a center post. Plate glass companies already are coming part way to meet the competition of plastics with their new plastic safety glass that will be used this year. This glass-A ill bend and not break if hit hard BETTER GAS IN PROSPECT Another new development will be in motor fuels. At least one nation-wide chain or filling sta- tiais already is set up to handle a 90 octane gasoline within- the next 18 months.' : " " • • : Oil company engineers are working with car engineers toward engines designed for 110 ochine rating .gasoline. They will be standard, it is expected here, by 1043 The thing- is practically on schedule. Three years from now filling stations may'handle nothin» but 100 and 110 octane gasoline The present car engines will use the new fuel satisfactorily, but the new engines will have much higher economy and efficiency Those !043 engines will get 35 miles per gallon of gas.i Tlie first step toward transparent automobiles: Plastic top turned b> , BRUCE CATION'S AMERICAN ROUNDUP By BRUCE CATTOff Courier News Washington Correspondent PHILADELPHIA, Aug. 16 - If you want to find cut how the Republican parly alms to get back , ~~ •-..-. «, luuuura into power, ami what, it Is likely ', "ibim Slllps> unde1 ' st!lle res Pon- In place cf WPA, there Is suggested a system much like PWA— cilice wages ought to be resisted to the utmost.

This, it Is admitted, would be an expensive way to handle the work relief program—theoretically. Actu-"" " ' argued, it would bo much about who is .nominated and "what he decs afterward. Dcminant figure In the group is Joseph N. Pew Jr., of Philadelphia, wealthy vice president of the Sun Oil Co. Teamed with him is Col. Carl Bites of Texas, another oil man. James, Estes, and Pew recently returned from a 10-day Canadian ffthing trip. The-.--following day Estes announced at Harrlsburg that he by this system and the relief rolls wculd dwindle rapidly. Here, rather roughly outlined, are seme ot the leading viewpoints within this group. A°ul whether Governor James becomes the nominee or not, it Is extremely likely that this group will have a great deal to say absut both the nomination and the ensuing: campaign. . - rg a e n , „, thought James-"an ideal candidate," liOSDel lent Meeting and Jnmes lemnrk^H timf T,I.,-I« K^ . * Tiiat engine be much lighter, with higher They will liave to smaller, nnd compression. go back to the cadmium bearings of four cr five years ago. Oil company engineers now are running exhaustive . tests with the new 110 octane fuels' and with engines equipped with the new bearings thai are necessary to withstand the extra force and pounding exerted by the new gas. LIGHTER ENGINES OI'EN' WAY TO CHANGE These lighter and smalier engines of possibly three years hence are what it will take to make the rear- cngmcd car practicable. So. give the car manufacturers an additional wo years afler the introduction of the smaller engine and the new rue] to perfect the first rear-en- gmed large-scale production car That, shculd be about 1945. To get closer home and the 1940 cars. Many cars will have the new- plastic safety glass. Biggest Innovation be Ihe new sealed headlamps, which the industry has gene for 100 per cent G. R. developed it in co-operation with the car engineers. They have been working years. on it over three 7n (lie G. E. lamp the reflector and lens are sealed tight and form the lamp bulb in which a vacuum Is created and in which the filament is placed. There is no other bulb. Other lamp manufacturers will use a regular bulb, but their reflectors and lenses -will be sealed tight. All units of all different makes will be the same size and Interchangeable. Dealers and service stations will carry only one size. and James remarked tlmt while lie was not actively seeking the iiomi- natitn, "no man could refuse" the nomination if it were offered. Neither Pew nor Estes does much talking, it is possible, however, (o make a fair summary of the general p;litical belieis held in this These rest largely on a firm belief that a thumping business revival is just nround the corner, but that it will stay around the corner until Franklin Roosevelt leaves the White House. It is the President's eeneral pers:nal altitude toward business and busines's needs which is chiefly objected to, rather than any specific New Deal measure BELIEVE COUNTRY RIPE FOR CHANGE FROM NEW DEAI, Next there comes a firm belief that the country is ripe for a change —tlmt the people are fed up with the New Deal and sorely disillusioned, that platforms will ml matter very much, Hurt the American people generally vote against someone rather than for someone and that right now they arc g c ttj,,g their mouths fixed to vote against Mr. Roosevelt. The group also tends to feel that t is time for the eld system of party responsibility to be revived- that It should be the party, rather than (he individual office holder who shapes policies, the party to' wh:m the voter's loyalty should be directed. Depend in on your point of view. yen could pr:bably say cither that this means a leaning toward "weak" presidents or that it represents a reaction against one-man control. But if this is a business group, which Is inclined to see perils in too much democracy, it is not a low-wage group. Quite the contrary, in fact Not long ago a well-known - - pirant for the Republican nomination suggested to a member of the group that there could be 113 recovery until rates had been Preparatorj- to singing marathon at the New York World's Fair, Ge:rge Glidden and Francis Rittel tested their endurance by playing for 47 hours and 15 minutes.
