WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER T, 1MB BLYTHEYILLB (ARK.) 1 COURIER HINTS PAGB THREE More Safety Devices Put On 1956 Model Cars Industry Attempting To Lower Nation's Highway Death Toll By SAM DAWSON NEW YORK W)—The ghastly highway death toll over the Labor Day weekend is spurring the auto industry today to stress new safety devices. Car makers can't keep motorists from running into each other, but industry spokesmen say the injuries can be" cut by at least a third ii' safety devices on 1956 models are used. Meanwhile Chrysler and Ford have each given Cornell University $200,000 for an automotive crash research program. Using the highway as a laboratory, Cornell works with state medical societies, departments of public health, police and traffic enforcement agencies in North Carolina, Virginia, Maryland, Connecticut, Indiana, Minnesota, Arizona, Vermont, Texas and the city of Minneapolis. Ford is crashing cars together deliberately at Dearborn, Mich., in a national safety forum and crash demonstration so that doctors and state police officials attending the two-day event can see what happens to the life-like dummies inside. Latest safety devices are being shown. Cornell's studies show that 40 per cent of all injured drivers are hurt on the steering assembly. Ford engineers are demonstrating a deep-center safety steering wheel which slowly gives way under crash impact, distributing the shock over ths driver's chest rather than let him be impaled on the steering column afler the wheel collapses. Indiana state police research shows that a passenger's chances of escaping injury in an accident are twice as great if he isn't thrown from the car by a crash. Auto engineers are coming out with i new safety door latches which they' say will keep doors from springing open under impact . Most of the new models will be equipped with—or can be equipped with—seat belts, much like those with which airplane passengers I have long been familiar. These j belts will help keep occupants in-! side the vehicle. | They also will cut down the | chnnces of passengers being thrown' against the instrument panel. Cor-! nell research shows that 38 per cent of those injured in the front | .seat are hurt on the instrument | panel. Crash cushioning for the instrument panel and sun visors is being! demonstrated by Ford engineers, | who claim the padding is Jive times! more shock absorbent than sponge, j and distributes the force of an| impact over a wider area of thcj head or body. A final device being shown is a safety rear view mirror with a' new backing which engineers say cms the chance ol glass falling out when shuttered. : With several million more cars expected to hit the highways next; year, the number of crashes may rise even over last weekend's grim rate, but the industry hopes; its new devices can at least cut; the injury and death toll.

STARR GAZING By BETTXE NELLE STARR Courier News Slaff Correspondent Well, I'm adding another candle to my cake this month, not binh- day (ttiank goodness) but to mark my fourth year with this newspaper. May I interrupt and throw a bouquet to the father-son team of Harry W. and Harry A. Haines? They would have to be the best or else I wouldn't have lasted to tell the story. My impression of them now is the same as it was when I had my first interview with "Hank" and that was the day he drove down here to talk to me about, writing for this wonderful paper. Being the informal type that I am, we transacted our business at the kitchen table over a cup of coffee and a slice of homemade pound cake and it's been just that p'lensant all along. I don't call mine, a job. It's been four of the most gratifying years of my working experiences and I've had quite a few. And saying it's a job takes away the warm feeling I have for my superiors and the entire force on this paper. John Winthrop's settlement was named "Boston" on this date in 1630. He was the first governor of Massachusetts. Boston was then called "Shawmut." Corbett defeated John L. Sullivan on this date in 1892. (First heavyweight championship under Marquis of Queensberry rules.) General Pershing returned from World War I on Sept. 8, 1919. Senator Huey Long of Louisiana was shot by br. C. A. Weiss on'Sept. 8, 1935. New Mexico and Utah Territories were established on Sept. 9 f 1850. Here's one for the records, Russia, (if you'll pardon the expression) tried to claim California on Sept. 10, 18812. Capt. Alexander Kushkof raised his Hag on the shore of Bodega Bay in violation of a treaty with Spain. What those Russians won't do! United Daughters of the Confederacy was organized on Sept. 10, 1894. Remember Commodore Perry's famous remark, "We have met the enemy and they are ours." This was said on Sept, 10, 1813 following the Battle of Lake Erie. It is well, when one is judging a friend, to remember that he is judging you with the same godlike j and superior impartiality.
