FRIDAY, SEPT. 22, 1939. THE DAILY NEWS—LUDINGTON, MICHIGAN. •••• -. PAGE FIVE New Plymouth Autos Are Now On Display In City Completely new from bumper to bumper,—much larger and more luxurious in every respect —new 1940 Plymouth "Road- king" and Deluxe models were formally presented to Ludington motorists by local Plymouth dealers here this week. Greater "eye appeal," as well as larger size, is evident at once in the sample display of new Plymouth body styles shown here by the local dealers. In appearance, added richness is gained by the fresh chrome treatment of grille and cat-walk louvres. Luxury keynotes the style of new, massive fenders and the larger body—which, by actual measurement, contains 12 cubic feet more space inside. More "automobile" for the 1940 mptor dollar is apparent in every line. The new Plymouth is built on a bigger, 117-inch wheelbase — but considerably more important as an index of increased size, the new car's total exterior surface is 17 sq. ft. greater than before. 'Luxury Ride' Matching this wholesale increase in car size, the new Plymouth presents for 1940 a new "luxury 2'ide"—gained through complete redistribution of weight; wider vision through j^iew safety glass that reduces eye-fatigue; new "Sealed- Beam" headlamps that give 5065*;; more road light; improved steering post gearshift now standard on the low-priced "Roadklng" as well as Deluxe; big. economical Floating Power engine with vital parts now Sui)erfinished Sor greater smoothness and longer life; new design transmission and clutch for quicker, easier shifting; reminder safety .signals on all instruments, and a score of other improvements in below-the-surface ruggediu's-s, driving comfort and safety in addition to the bigger, wider. sound-proofed bodies and longer wheelbase. Set low on this year's longer, heavier frame is a bigger body-much wider and longer as well as lower than before- that now flares outward at the bottom instead of curving in at the All body styles thi.s year for the first time come with or without running boards. These are replaced, if .so desired, by smart fender guards and a chrome decorated moulding beneath the doors to emphasize the bottom flare. New 'Unit' Design Body liiie.s flow in continuous curves to include the new fenders' hood and radiator shell—all >>ow essentially part of the new •nmit" design—and end at the back in a beautiful new streamlined rear deck that slopes back at 45 degrees. The new streamlined rear end completely conceals this year's larger trunk, that is lighted at night by inside "windows" at the back of the two tail lamps. Streamlined into the front fender contour are the greatly improved new "Sealed Beam" headlamps—latest development of the auto industry in collaboration with the Motor Vehicle Commissioners of the 48 states, and regarded by many as the Number One safety improvement .since shatterproof glass. These give 50-65% brighter road lighting at night, without glare to other motorists. The new lamps have reflector, filament and lens sealed together in a single unit for maximum efficiency. Another new Plymouth advantage is the full-width, straight rear door, giving wider space for easy entrance and exit-eliminating the "dog- leg" or cut-away section around the rear fender contour. Thi.s year all door latches, on both "Road- king" and Deluxe arc of the new rotary type for easier and positive closing. Front door hinges on all models are now concealed, adding to the car's beauty from an appearance standpoint and ending the "wind whistle" sometimes caused by protruding hinges. Windshield wipers have been moved down, and now are mounted at the base of the windshield. They are vacuum-operated for dependable service. Prices Announced New Detroit delivered prices for the majority of its 1940 models were announced by the Plymouth Division of Chrysler Corporation. These 1940 'Plymouth prices include all Federal taxes. The list of models for which prices are announced include the Roadking and DeLuxe series, both of which are now on the new 117-inch chassis with entirely new wider bodies with ten cubic, feel, greater passi-nger room. Sealed-Beam headlights- and numerous important other value increases. Two new body models arc included in the 1940 Plymouth line. I Notable among the additions | is an entirely new model -a cle- 1 luxe four-passenger coupe, with auxiliary .seals buck of Ihc driver's sent that, fold away when (not in use. The 1940 designs provide trunks larger than those in 1939 touring sedan models, completely streamlined into the body, and all Plymouth sedans in the DeLuxe. line, as well as the lower priced Roadking line this year are touring sedans with greater luggage space than be- lore.

Parents, guardians and friends of the school children, are invited and urged to attend this meeting. Frank Budzynski is back at his duties in the Blohm Garage after a week's. vacation. Frank is not only a good mechanic, but a good gardener as well. Anyone passing the garage and the vacant lot adjoining, cannot refrain from speaking about his lovely flowers, which are now in radiant and colorful bloom. Long ropes of blue morning glories have.found their way up telephone and sign posts. One hardly notices the huge commercial sign, because.the eye is attracted to the blossoming, four o'clocks, nasturtiums, dahlias, gladioli, fire bush and others banked at the bottom of the sign. This brings in mind one of the most beautiful spots on the Lincoln river which has recently been graced with a "dump no rubbish" sign, after tons of old iron, bed springs and tin cans have found their resting place within a few feet of the hard surface highway over which hundreds of visitors travel each summer. Perhaps time and nature will cover these unsightly objects, restore in a measure wliat was once a beautiful riverside spot. Everyone appreciates the placing of the sign and its meaning in this particular place may be a lesson, causing people to think twice before unloading their rubbish ,on the roadside. Strictly religious Mennonites may not own radio sets, which are rated as musical instruments and have, been forbidden since the founding of the church under pain o| excommunication. Order Now!
