THURSDAY, MARCH 18, 1965 T U C S O N D A I L Y C I T I Z E N iitizen Pholo Inventor With Jet-Age Auto George J. Huebner Jr. gives Tucson a look at the new Chrysler Turbine developed under his direction over the past 20 years. The vehicle, which uses diesel fuel, enjoys the mileage of a medium-priced car. Tucson Gets A Preview Of Chrysler's Turbine Car A softly whining engine pulled | alloys which are readily avail- the sleek Chrysler Turbine up A Mountain with little effort. In it was a Citizen reporter- photographer team to get the feel of this new motoring product which some day may fill the nation's highways. The newsmen enjoyed a ride in vibration-free comfort. The car had good reflexes, braking quickly to a stop at the one intersection on the mountain. Chrysler has spent millions over a 20-year period on this pride of George J. Huebner Jr., the company's director of research. Chrysler has produced 50 of the cars, starting its consumer research program in October, 1963. Under Chrysler's market evaluation program, Duane R. Doane, 1024 E. 7th St., starting today, will drive the car during a three-month period. Doane, a truck driver for the past 13 years, is with the Pacific Motor Trucking Co. He was selected on a random basis by a nationwide accounting firm experienced in marketing and selection programs. Huebner yesterday gave a rundown on his new turbine. The power plant, which is op- crated something like.a jet aircraft engine, uses diesel fuel which costs two to eight cents less a gallon than gasoline. It also gives about the same mileage as that of a standard medium-priced car. The engine has but one spark plug and about 80 per cent fewer parts than those on the standard gasoline engine. It features low maintenance cost, small oil consumption, instant heat in the winter, no anti-freeze and dependable low-temperature starting. The 130 - horsepower engine idles at about 18,000 to 22,000 revolutions per minute and gets up to about 60,000 rpm at full speed, which is about 120 miles per hour. The engine was made possible by the discovery of super metal able and cheaply produced. "Many of the materials used in aircraft engines cost between $4 and $25 a pound," Huebner said. "We finally developed a metal which costs about 50 cents a pound and can stand the terrific heat created by the turbine engine." He added that through the use of regenerators, a great deal of the exhaust heat is captured to improve fuel economy while lowering the heat leaving the car. "If the exhaust heat was not reduced," Huebner said, "it would melt asphalt. However, we have it down to about 180 degrees." He added that gases are clean the and exhaust contain very little carbon monoxide or other waste materials help produce smog. which Huebner, who first became interested in turbine engines in 1939, initiated research work on gas turbines in 1945. By designing an unusual regenerator and other components, the problems of hot exhaust gases and high fuel consumption were reduced, and automotive gas turbines of high efficiency were thus made possible. He also has served as executive engineer in the firm's missile branch and was instrumental in the research and development of liquid-fuel guided missiles for Army Ordnance. The 54-year-old engineer was born in Detroit and joined Chrysler in 1931. He was graduated from the University of Michigan a year later. He has a son, David, who is a senior in marketing at the University of Arizona. rAGE.f* 6th In Stormy Case Passes Lie Test A sixth friend of Eugene F. (Stormy) McDonald last night took and passed a lie-detector test, it was reported by Sheriff Waldon V. Burr. The friend, Ronald John Watkins, a 23-year-old University of Arizona junior, was given the test by Deputy Sheriff John Rohr. The test proved that he had no participation in the Feb. 2 death of Zenith Radio heir McDonald, Burr said. Watkins lives at 1608 E. 10th St. The five others who took the test after McDonald's death also cleared themselves, according to Burr. McDonald was found with a bullet in his head and his wrists slashed at his fashionable home at 9043 E. Bellevue St. Burr has maintained the death was a suicide, but a coroner's jury ruled it was not suicide and that he was not alone when he died. " ' · Boston Rowdies Heckle Civil Rights Marchers By Wire Services CAIRO, U.A.R. -- H u n d r e d s of Cairo U n i v e r s i t y students marched on the West German and Tunisian embassies today, sut they turned back when they :ame face-to-face with riot police armed with clubs and shields. The students were protesting West Germany's plan to recognize Israel and Tunisian President Habib Bourguiba's opposition to the Arab nations' decision to take retaliatory measures against the Bonn government. BOSTON -- W -- There was a civil rights message again this year in the St. Patrick's Day march in South Boston -- and for the second straight year it was the target of rowdyism. Five hundred members of the Catholic Interracial Council, marching with 10,000 in the parade, ran into scattered insults from spectators. Archie D. Dickerson, a Negro and past grand knight of the Roxbury Council of the Knights of Columbus, was spat on by a white youth. Dickerson grabbed the youth and said: "I grew up with white kids and I learned to fight with them and against them--and I learned about your kind -- you scum," A priest, the Rev. Ernest T. Serino, twice bolted from the line of march to confront hecklers. He grabbed a white youth and ordered: "Apologize. Get on your knees and thank God I am a man of peace." The youth knelt. Later Father Serino moved into a heckling sideline crowd saying: "Shame, shame. Pray God to save your souls." An ice cream cone thrown at the marchers hit a priest on the shoulder. A beer bottle hit the foot of Negro attorney David Nelson. The Rev. Joseph Collins, Catholic chaplain at Harvard, was heckled at the end of the parade by the question, "How do you get around that intermarriage, father?" He answered: "We're for it." The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People sponsored no float in the parade. Last year, the NAACP's float was the target of eggs and stones. After the parade yesterday, Thomas Atkins, executive secretary of the Boston NAACP, said: "I cannot believe, and will not accept the actions of the misguided hoodlums who spat and cursed at us represent the thinking of thousands who lined the parade route and cheered us on." Senator Opposed To 'Big Radio' WASHINGTON --UPI- Sen. George A. Smathers, D-Fla., wants Congress to express its opposition to radio stations broadcasting with power in excess of 50,000 watts. Smathers has introduced a resolution in the Senate to that effect. He noted that several stations have applied to the Federal Communications Commission to increase their power from 50,000 watts to 750,000 watts. Approval of these applications, Smathers said, "would result in an undesirable concentration of economic control in the hands of a few stations, putting them in a position of attracting national advertisers away from the small radio stations around the country." Youll drink it and you'll like it. That's not an order And that's what makes it's a promise. 7 Crown The Sure One. TGESued; Electricity Hurt Youth Tucson Gas Electric was sued for $250,000 yesterday by the father of a youth who was burned severly when he climbed a pole Feb. 14 and was shocked by 45,000 volts. Lome Konigsfeld, of 4556 E. Glenn St., filed the Superior Court action on behalf of his son, Dale, 16. The accident occurred while the youth was on an outing with several others near Rillito. Prepared by attorney Lawrence Ollason, the suit says the pole had iron spikes comprising a ladder and that this created an attraction for children. No fence, barrier or warning sign was around the pole, the pleading adds. Sheriff's deputies reported that young Konigsfeld did not actually touch the wires, but received a "shock wave" of electricity when he was near the top. He then fell to the ground, his clothes ablaze from the electrical charge, deputies said. Witnesses told investigators \ that the youth had climbed the pole to see if he could spot ether children who had become separated from the group. Want to be sure you like what you taste?

SPlfilli BONN, TUNISIA EMBASSIES TARGETS Cairo Students In Protest March In Jerusalem, Israel, West German envoy Kurt Birrenbach was holding final talks today at the bedside of ailing Premier Levi Eshkol of Israel, on establishing diplomatic relations. Usually well-informed sources said that if the talks succeed as appears likely, Israel's first ambassador to Bonn may be Asher Ben-Nathan, director general of the defense ministry here. There were no serious clashes in Cairo between the students and police who were supported b y f i r e hoses. But three Ger- m a n photographers w e r e roughed up by the students before police rescued them. A policeman near the university said the students were celebrating President Gamal Abdel Nasser's election to a new term. And when asked whether the students were heading toward the German embassy he said, "We are protecting all foreign embassies." Anti-German riots in the Lebanese port of Tripoli and the burning of the German embassy in Yemen foreshadowed more trouble for Bonn in the Arab world today. Rudolph Werner, chairman of r the West German Bundestag's* committee on development aid", flew to Cairo to try to smooth, relations with Arab countries" angered by the German decision to recognize Israel. The trip was made at the request of United Arab Republic authorities, but his job will be to try to persuade Nasser's government not to recognize Communist East Germany.
