GOP Brings Pressure on Nixon to Run ..LOS ANGELES W 1 )--Heads of the Republican Stale Cen tral Committee Saturday urged former Vice President ^Richard M, Nixon to run for ig'overnor of California--"as :.the most qualified man in our 'Estate." 1 ·- The 75-member executive I committee of the state GOP .' s.aid in a resolution: "We would be derelict in our duty if, recognizing as Mr. Nixon docs, that our party has a wealth of quali tied people to serve as governor, we did not point out . that the most important serv- ; ice our party can perform for · the people of California is the election of the most qualified man in the state to be our · governor--Richard M. Nixon. · "We believe that his elec- , tion as governor would not ..only restore to California the **front rank position we so ·long enjoyed before 1958, but ...would broaden and make "^even more valuable Richard ../·Nixon's extraordinary leader- v'ship--a leadership our whole v : c o u n l r y so desperately -·-needs." * * * * Nixon -told a select group · of California GOP leaders a few days ago that he doesn't intend to run--but will post; '.pone a final decision for 60 Vdays. ; ·'· During that time he urpcd . G O P leaders to see if another '-·candidate can be found to, as ', -i;Nixon put it, "save the state '. ;'· for the Republicans." Unofficial reports s a y ; '. Nixon has been getting con- · ; flicting advice about whether 1 ; to' run.

SLIDING ON AIR Ford Motor Company's Levacar Mach I, the first full-scale, wheel-less vehicle utilizing air propulsion, is given a trial run by Dr. Andrew A. Kucher, vice president of engineering and research. Styling of the aluminum vehicle was done by vice president George W. Walker, standing. It is the first Levacar in which the operator rides and has full command over both levitation and forward speed.

(/PI--A mother and three young chil- ' dren drowned Saturday a f t e r j their car struck a deer anri plunged into McGregor Lake. Coroner Sol Catron identified the victims as Mrs. Rose. mary A. Caveny, 29, of Kalispell, and her children, Vickie, 2y 2 , and Pamula Dick Walsh said By HERB SHANNON A Ford without wheels may he the answer to Southern California's crowded freeways. This doesn't mean you have to take the family car apart to avoid the Sunday driver crush. Ford engineers in Detroit already have taken care of this. They have designed a vehicle called the Levacar, which lifts itself a fraction of an inch off a prepared surface and slides along on a friction-free f i l m of compressed air. It has no wheels to start with. The prototype Levacar is only a one-passenger job and can be used only on a special circular track which is set up for demonstrations. But this one-man vehicle is the basis for a mass-transit design which would accommodate 200 passengers on rails between cities. ft fi ft THE KING-SIZE Levacar design would be 124 feet long, weigh 76,000 pounds and be capable of speeds up to 500 miles an hour. Ford Motor Co. representatives have discussed the design with Pennsylvania Railroad engineers for an experimental line between New York and Philadelphia. If the experiment should work, it would pave the way for huge savings in rapid transit construction and possibly break the cost freeze which has blocked development of monorail or other mass transportation in Southern California. Dr. Andrew A. Kucher, Ford vice president for engi- neering, maintains that the cost of an elevated system for the Levacar would be S125.000 to $150,000 a mile, compared to a minimum average of 5600,000 a mile for a superhighway. The secret of the Levacar is compressed air emitted from small holes in Ihe metal pads which support the vehicle on specially-constructed rails. The air forms a t h i n high-pressure area and l i f t s the pad a fraction of an inch from the rails. In the preliminary mass-transit design, propulsive power would be supplied by two three-hladed propellers, one at each end of the cigar-shaped vehicle. Braking would be accomplished by reversing the propellers. The efficiency of the Levacar principle may be best illustrated by the small amount of power necessary to lift and propel the operational one-man model. Only 15 horsepower is required to levitate the vehicle and less than two horsepower is needed to push the car at 15 miles an hour. FURTHER SAVINGS in construction between cities could be made by using existing railroad tracks as the base for the Levacar rails, Dr. Kucher said. According to Ford engineers, design studies for a four- passenger version of the Levacar are under way and the vehicle may be ready to test in about two years. And perhaps, along about 19GG, local service stations will be having compressed-air price wars and advertising free gas to attract customers.
