WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 80. 1958 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE FIVE Dealers Blast 'One-Sided' Pacts 'With Automobile Manufacturers By EDWIN B. HAAKINSON WASHINGTON (AP) — Spokesmn for the nation's 40,000 retail car dealers, complaining of "pressures," today renewed their plea for a freer hand in dealing with auto manufacturers. A score of dealers, members of the National Automobile Dealers Assn. (NADA), were invited to return for further testimony before a Senate Antitrust and Monopoly subcommittee. Frederick J. Bell, NADA president, contended yesterday that what he called "one-sided" contracts deny dealers rights as "independent businessmen," and give the Detroit auto executives virtual control over the investment of every dealer. The subcommittee is engaged in what Sen. O'Mahoney (D-Wyo) terms it study of the economic influence that huge General Motors Corp. exercises in the auto industry. Bell said the manufacturers, in rebuffing suggestions by the dealers for "correction of unfair . . practices," have subjected them to "factory pressure, threats and coercion.' , Toughly Competitive "We are in no way interested in fighting to preserve the business of a lazy man, an inefficient man, or a man who permits his so-called shrewdness to overbalance his business ethics." What auto dealers want, he said, is "to be toughly competitive, to sink or swim, rise or fall on their own merits and in accordance with, rules that are clearly understood, universally applicable and not subject to drastic change with every shift of wind that blows from Detroit." Bell said CM profits annually range from 15 to 20 per cent while the retail dealer average slumped from a peak of 6 per cent in 1850 to less than 1 per cent last year. He said many dealers have lost their franchises because they are forced to take cny quota of cars sent them by the manufacturer. This has led to "bootlegging" and other sales absues, he said. Cop Does Duty- Arrests Wife . Mont. Wl — City policeman Thomas Powell felt he had a duty and he did it — arrested his wife Denise. He gave her a citation for careless driving and causing an accident. No one was hurt. Powell said his wife posted S10 bond in police court, then forfeietd it without trial— and that she "still was a little burned up" at him. New Drug Combination Seen As Possible Control of Senility By FRANK CAREY AH Science Reporter BOSTON 1*1— Use of a new drug combination could prevent many oldsters from going "over the hill" to a .mental institution, the American Medical Assn. was told yesterday. Two Michigan scientists said experiments with the drugs among senile 1 patients in hospitals indicate control can often be achieved at home by family doctors for behavior problems that ordinarily require hospitalization for such people, Reseachers John T. Ferguson and William H. Fundcrburk of Traverse City State Hospital made the report in a scientific exhibit at the annual clinical meeting of the American Medical Assn. They said their objective was to eliminate "abnormal behavior" — such as destructiveness of cloth- Doctor Cuts Off Wrong Finger Woman Sues Him BIRMINGHAM, England (/P) — Mrs. Lily Patten haa won 2,600 pounds $7,000 In damages from a surgeon who got the wrong finger. Te 44-year-old woman was taken to a hospital after the middle finger on one hand was crushed in a press at the factory where she worked. The surgeon, Dr. B. H. Column, admitted in court yesterday he mistakenly amputated the little finger of the same hand instead of the injured one.

The Idea was to produce an "active tranquility" in the patients, the doctors said, declaring that doses of the respective drugs were designd to take care of both "overactivity" and "underactiv- ity" in the patients. Describing studies among 215 female mental patients, the doctors said that in the large majority there was "marked improvement in the ability to cooperate and a new interest in their outlook on life and themselves." For example, the staff beauty shop operator was "swamped" with work following the dru? treatments, and appointments for ing or furniture, or faulty habitsf dental treatments rose sharply. Firemen Hunt, Women Talk And House Keeps Burning YORK. Pa. IB—Mrs. Cletus Bentz saw smoke puffing from her neighbor's farm home yesterday and called the volunteer lire department at New Salem, a mile away. - "I'm sorry," she was told, "but all the firemen have gone hunting." Pennsylvania's deer season opened Monday. Mrs. Bentz' call had been taken by Harry Noss, who runs a gas station in New Salem and also takes all the calls for the volunteer firemen. Noss figured he'd have to get somebody to the fire, so he tried to call the volunteer unit in Jacobus six miles distant. But two women were talking on his 10-party line and refused to give it up, he said Noss waited a bit, then tried again The women were still talking and still in no mood to stop.
