Comet styling eliminates the stark utility car look. Its lines are smart, graceful and flowing. It is compact, but not stubby. The Comet is designed to suit the needs of a one-car family and seats six comfortably. .Although it is priced with the new smaller cars, it has a longer wheelbase for a'better/ride, plus vacation-size luggage capacity, the Ford vice president observed. THE COMET has the clean styling of more expensive cars. Its horizontal anodyzed aluminum grille is flanked with dual headlights. Chrome ornamentation is limited to simple side strips which sweep back to the rear doors and then rise to meet the rear fender lines. In profile, the nearly flat roof ends in a clean angular line to the body, forming a wide, slight- y curved rear window like some luxury cars. The "gong away" view shows a wide rear window with extra visi- bilily, canted oval taillights, ind sturdy w r a p - a r o u n d lumper.

If so, chances are some par of the exhaust system, probably the muffler, is damaged or ruined. The telltale sensation of forehead tightness is a clue thst deadly carbon monoxide from the auto exhaust is entering your car, a Long Beach authority on exhaust systems, Ben Rabenn, warned today. Other common symptoms are headache, nausea and diz- zinesss. All can mean trouble in terms of potential serious Cases of carbon monoxide poisoning or increased susceptibility to accidents. Rabeen, who operates the Midas Muffler Shop at 401 E. A n a h e i m St., said it doesn't take much damage before a muffler allows carbon monoxide to seep into the passenger compartment, and it doesn't take much carbon monoxide to cause serious trouble. FOR INSTANCE," he said, 'in a few hours, air with a carbon monoxide concentration of only two parts per thousand can produce headache, mental dullness, and physical lassitude." "That's part of the subtle danger of carbon monoxide," he continued. "It's colorless, odorless, tasteless and non-ir- ·itating. The first symptoms of poisoning are the same as "or ordinary fatigue." Carbon monoxide by itself can be a 'cause of serious bodily injury. Or it may dull a driver's segses so that he may not be in full command of his car and 'thus become more prone dents. to serious acci- A CONCENTRATION of can produce headache in an hour, unconsciousness in two; per thousand will causes unconsciousness in less than an hour; death within two hours.
