' That simple self-introduction was one of the most superfluous statements in history. For 33 hours and 29 minutes Lindbergh's name hnd been bla- , zoned in newspaper headlines around the world, from the time he h^i* lifted his tiny monoplane off ft&fcvelt Field, New York, and announced he was flying to Paris. Each succeeding edition had recorded the progress o£ the Spirit of St. Louis—Providence, R.T., Brockton. Mass., Nova Scotia, St. ny, Nfld., over the Empress of Scotland, 500 miles at sea, County Kerry, Ireland. Lindbergh Sighted When word came at 5:20 p.m. on Saturday, May 21, that Lind. bergh had been sighted over Ireland, thousands of workers were just leaving Paris stores and offices for the week end. They headed for LR Bourget-by streetcar, bus, automobile and on foot. Maurice Tiesche, then as now en employe at the airfield, recalls that the -"airport was black with people. The cars were packed bumper to bumper for a couple of miles." Fence Knocked Down Of the 50,000 people at the airport, about 25,000 managed to get inside the iron fence. It was knocked down in places. « \Vhen the plane stopped rolling,' todbergh recalled in his book "We," the pilot had to cut the switch to keep the propeller from ktlllng somebody in the crowd that rushed up. "I started to cltmb out of the cockpit of the plane but as soon as one foot appeared through the door I was dragged the rest of the way, without any assistance on my , part," he recalled. "For nearly half an hour I was Unable to touch the ground, during which time I was ardently carried around in what seemed to be very small area, and in every position it is possible to be in." Decoy Set Up Finally, some French military pilots set the crowd on & deco> by snapping Lindbergh's helmet on a newspaperman. They got the flier away to the U.S. Emr. and to bed. Lindbergh flew a high-wing Ryan monoplane which carried 430 gal Ions of gasoline and weighed 2 tons when loaded. He hnd a 220 fea^sepower radial aircooled moto l^?i flew at about 120 miles hour as his pas load lightened.

Then we can tell you this: It will certainly be worth your while to read this brief story of Buick's new Airpower carburetor. Truth is—a skillful driver can just about double the bonus we mention, if he makes the most of what this year's ROADMASTER has to offer. Ihe reason you can get such a bonus traces to a pair of simple facts: (1) It's a mixture of gasoline and air that gives you power. (2) Buick engineers have come up with a four-barrel automatic carburetor that lets you use more gallons of air per gallon of fuel. Most o£ the time, only two of these barrels are needed —and they fee.d such a thrifty mixture that you use less gasoline at 40 mph than you'd formerly use at 30. But — when you want a quick burst of eager power — you can double the air supply as well as the gasoline feed —and come up with the highest horsepower that Buick's Fireball 8 Engine ever delivered. course, any man who's buying a car as fine'as a ROADMASTER wants a lot more than extra miles from a tankful of gas. He wants the distinction of extra room, extra comfort, richer fabrics and all the other refinements that make a car truly fine. He wants to ride with solid security, confident poise and lordly silence. And, while he may not admit it, he yearns for a car that's full of fun. All this, we promise you, and more will be yours when you take the responsive wheel of a ROADMASTER.
