THURSDAY, JUNE 1, 1950 BLYTHKVU.LE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE NINS Nev/Compound'Engine May Boost Plane Range Stan Kenton Plans Own Film On American Band Business By BOB THOMAS HOLLYWOOD. JUI1C 1. CIKCLEJ) TXJRBINT>—one of three on the "compound" engine—Is run by c\hnust passes from the conventional piston-type engine. Thus the same fuel produces more power. This "compound 1 ' engine Is Installed on a Lockheed P2V-4. Weary of movies that paint a false picture of the band business, music mail Stan KenLon Is planning to make a picture ol his'own. 'Hollywood 'has never done right by the band business," said Die 37- year-old promoter of "pfogrcssive jazz" "There were a few good scenes in a picture called 'Syncopation' ft few years ago, but the rest of it wasn't so good, i haven't seen 'Young Man With n Horn 1 , but the boys In the band tell me it's not so hot." Kenton to Make Film So Kenton, to whom nothing serins impossible, will film bis own production when his band goes on the road next season. "It will be a documentary." he declared. "We'll start when the first bookings start to come in. Then we'll show the boys being fitted for their uniforms, the band rehearsing new numbers and finally hitting the road. "We'll take the audience right backstage and show the wives knitting and talking together while the show goes on. We'll show everything." Sneaking of recent drives by rcc- orrl cnmpantcs to revive interest in bands, Kentou observed, "they can't — put life back into the business by By XKA Service WOOD-RIDGE, N.J. — (NBA) — | gugincers at Wright Aeronnautical *p. have put one and one tc- aher and made one. They've made a new type aircraft engine that promises great things for aviation. They took the best features of the conventional piston engine and combined them with the jet or turbine type. What cnme out Is something they call a "compound" engine. The new engine has been successfully tested on a Lockheed P2V-4 Neptune, used by the Navy as a long-range anti-submarine patrol bomber. Already, it has demmi- Btrated its ability. Using the same amount of fuel as a 2700-horsepower engine, It developed 3250 horsepower. And that Increase in power was gained with an engine that is actually lighter in weight. The "compound" engine therefore gives promise of increasing the range ol planes like the Neptune, which already holds the world's distance record of 11,236 miles. • * • Wright's engineers, who have been working on the project since 1946 knew that the Jet-type engine produces great amounts of power from a relatively light machine. The also knew that the piston-type has crtaln advantages, too. So they built a piston engine. But, instead of letting the exhaust as simply escape into the air, they piped it directly Into tlje turbines. Now, as the piston part of the 'compound* engine operates, it produces fuel for the turbine part at he same time as ib drives the plane 'orward itself. The "compound" engine is really two engines in one— v'th only one fuel supply. Besides its economy of operation, . terms of fuel consumption for power produced, the "compound" engine has other advantages. In tests, it has shown that it can take off with a shorter run, mid also develop, greater take-off power. And it Is a ^quieter engine, too. Noise is an Important factor in crew fatigue, so the "compound" engine will be liked by the pilots as well as the aviation strategists. The Neptune, equipped with regular engines, hns a nornjal non-stop cruising range of more than 5000 miles. With the "compound" engine, it can take a full military load from the United States to Europe and back again—non-stop, without refueling. / That adds up to a big boost to aviation from the simple formula of one and one equalling one. . NO ESCAPE for Uie "energy slugs," always present in engine exhaust. In the "compound" engine. In ordinary piston engines, the *f*lugs" go ripht Into -th« air. But (he cartoon shows that In the, «D«iD*, they push » turbine wheel before escaping. Arkansas Taxes Chalk Up Record LITTLE ROCK, June 1. IIP} — Arkansas' tax collections (or the year ended yesterday, chalked up two new records. One was In Ihe amount collected during the 12-month period which started June 1. 1949. The other was In revenues Burned in for this month. At noon, the Arkansas Revenne Department reported the collections for the year at S81.050.000. A final tabulation Is expected later this afternoon. The previous yearly record was set during the IS-IS-^ revenue year. Collections then totaled $78,023.000. Revenue Commissioner Dean Morley reported that collections for the month of May already have exceeded by S241.000 the record set in May. 1949. He estimated collections for May of this year would be about $10,050,000. Englishman Acquitted Of Assault Charges; Watered Ambassador NEW DELHI, India. June 1. (/PI— Bearded John Edwards, the Englishman who doused Argentina's ambassador with water, in a nightclub squabble, was acquitted yesterday of assault charges. A crowded courtroom applauded the acquittal verdict. District Magistrate Ramewshwar Dayal In his verdict said Edwards had had provocation in his action May 5 In a New Delhi hotel because Ambassador Oscar Tascheret's party persisted in blowing whistles and stopping the floor show. Edwards had testified he asked the ambassador to behave and Tascherel laughed at him. After he poured water on the envoy "to cool him off." he said the Argen- tinian threw fl drink in his face. The Englishman was arrested on the complaint of embassy staff members. Edwards' motive was not political as one prosecution witness charged, the magistrate said today, since Edwards did not know Tascherets identity when he wielded the water pitcher. trying to bring back the same old bands; they've got to find something new," Revivals Deplored Kenton himself is out of the dance business now, :'-ce he plays only to sit-down audiences.
