Hilton. ( Hilton told a reporter it was a| "fine settlement" because it let the! chain keep the 10 Statler group! hotels it acquired for 111 million, dollars in 1954. i The agreement, in a consent de-| cree filed in U.S. District Court,! ended a civil antitrust suit tiled in i April 1955 against Hilton. Hotels j Corp. and Statler Hotels Delaware! Corp.. a Hilton subsidiary. I The decree requires Hilton 10! dispose of the Mayflower Hotel In Washington, either the New Yorker of the Roosevelt Hotel in New YorK City, and the Jefferson Hotel in St. Louis. The Jefferson was sold last month in a 7 Vi-million-dollar : deal. It also restricted further Hilton expansion in four cities. The decree provided that the Hilton-Statler group, the world's largest hotel chain, may not acquire any other hotels on a list ot 30 in New York, Washington, St. Louis and Los Angeles-Beverly Hills area before Jan. 1, 1961—il the acquisition would give Hilton control of more rhan four hotels in New York and one each in the other areas. "Most of the hotels \ve wouldn't want anyv.ay," Hilton said. The decree, he said, "does not al- fect us in any other cities" and "we still arc allowed to build all the new hotels we want to, any place. "And the decree only runs five years anyway." The government wanted to halt completion of the sale of Uit 10 Statler. hotels to Hilton on th» ground that elimination of sutler'* competition gave Hilton an enormous advantage over other hotels.

And you get that in a 1956 Buick in plenty from big 322-cubic-ineh V8 engines that hit new highs in horsepower and compression. But the power under the hood must be carried to the rear driving wheels in the form of twisting force on the drive shaft. That's torque — the end-product of your transmission. And the higher the torque build-up—the greater tile "torque multiplication" in starting and accelerating—the better the getaway and response. So if you want to feel take-off that leaves your breath behind you, come try a '56 Buick with Variable Pitcli Dynaflow.* For in this airplane-principled transmission, Buick engineers raised the ceiling on torque to give yon the best getaway yet. They did it with something they call "double regeneration"- a new way to make flowing oil add to its own velocity. And when you use the full torque of a Buick bcaulij like the one pictured above, you're using the highest torque multiplication to be had in any standard-production American automobile today. Come see for yourself what that means in new tlnills and new safety. You'll find brilliant new getaway response in the first inch of pedal travel-plus greater gai mileage to boot. You'll find an electrifying new safety-surge of full-power acceleration when you floor tha pedal and switch the pitch. And you'll find this spectacular performance blended into the smoothest-traveling, tha sweetest-riding, the highest-powered and tho easiest-handling Buicks yet built.
