World press views AMERICAN MOTORS' 1975 Pacer is a wide small car unique in concept and designed to appeal to a broad range of car buyers. By ART STEPHAN Auto Editor In break with the usual car design, American Motors has introduced the Pacer, a wide, small car unique in concept and designed to appeal to a broad range of car buyers. Auto writers from across the U.S. were in Palm Springs last week to see and drive the Pacer and to hear company executives tell of their promotional plans for the appealing car -- going to the public -March. Roy D. Chapin Jr., AMC board chairman, told a North American news preview that the Pacer, "illustrates again that American Motors is committed to providing distinctive ideas and products which are responsive to rapidly-changing times. "In 1971, the company pioneered an all-inclusive car warranty designed to protect consumers, the Buyer Protection Plan. A year earlier, in 1970, the company made a product commitment to consumers with the Gremlin, the first U.S.-built subcompact car. By introducing the Pacer, the company now reaffirms its commitment to being responsive to the ever-changing product needs of consumers." PACER DEVELOPMENT began four years ago with studies on personal mobility that could be anticipated in the late 1970's and early 1980's. The objective was "to meld together the specific ingredients of a car that would be in harmony with the environment of the coming decade," Chapin said. "Several attempts were made to design such a car, and then one emerged that seemed to fit the objective," he said. "Subsequently, it was taken before panels of car buyers of widely varying purchase preferences -- small car buyers, medium sized buyers, big car buyers -- and they ware asked for their opinions. They responded and we reacted to their suggestions." Chapin said the Pacer is unlike anything American Motors has introduced in the past, and in many respects, it departs from anything ever offered by other automobile manufacturers. "In a true sense, it is not revolutionary, but its total effect is one of marked difference," he said. "The exterior is not traditional in its configuration, and its interior has the people space of much larger cars." The two-door Pacer, with a 100-inch wheelbase, is offered in three versions--a standard model, a sporty "X" and a luxury D/L model. It has an overall length of 171.5 inches, making it easier to park and maneuver. The four-passenger car has two large asymmetrical doors. The curb-side door is four inches longer than the driver's door for easy entry and exit of rear seat ~ passengers". Both doors are cut into the roof to further facilitate entering and exiting. A large rear hatch housing the rear window provides easy access to the luggage area behind the rear seat. The back seat can be folded forward for added cargo carrying capacity. OPTIMUM VISIBILITY never before experienced with a car of Pacer dimensions results from its expansive window area and low belt line. W i t h i n t e r i o r design paramount d u r i n g its development, the Pacer provides more inside room than any other American small car. Passenger comfort is enhanced by big seats plus exceptional head ; shoulder, hip and leg room. The instrument panel is easy to read and all controls are conveniently located in front of the driver. pl^^^p^^^^^^^ggm^^BBSjg^H^DKIflBi^BBi^^^^^^B^HMi^^ 111 ^^^^".^^^^^TM""** You Save MORE in January During Our FACTORY Cliarance!

The Philippines Daily Express, a semiofficial paper, was one of several newspapers to comment last week on the guilty verdicts against H . R , Haldeman, John N. Mitchell, John D. Ehrlichman and Robert C. Mardian. It said the aides of for- luded themselves into thinking that being in power clothed them with the right to get away with almost everything." London's conservative Daily Telegraph remarked that in Nixon's White House the buck stopped in his antechamber rather than on the presidential desk. "The proceedings of the .»... nnttnlltHfl tl-lol IVlll convince many people ... that Nixon should have been in the dock, and that the f i n d i n g s of guilt against his closest associates apply equally to him in spirit if not in law," the Telegraph said. The Bangkok Post singled out Judge John J. Sirica for praise. "The one.stellar figure, the one enlightened man who was in Watergate from the beginning, Judge John "J. Sirica, presided until the'end with dignity, with honor and with a sense of fairness," it commented.

Stores selling USDA Choice Beef cuts will tell you. Stores selling other grades usually don't and often try to mislead shoppers with fancy names. So to be sure of superior quality, look for the USDA Choice Beef seal. You'll find it on the package of every, beef cut at FedMart. Each cut is trimmed to give you extra value, too.
