Notable In this respect Is the artistic blending ef the radiator, front fendsrs and hood Into what appeara to be a single, graceful, Integral unit. The style of the roundad, racing oar type radiator has been further enhanced by tosntg the shell out slightly at the bottom and curving the lower quarter Into an oval design, resting on the mass- ive'one-piece fenders to carry out the Integral affect. An attractive new airplane propeller-type ohrome-plated bumper, with ends verging upward, adds to the effectiveness of the front end harmony as do the vlaorless, sloping windshield and the twin trumpet-type home of new design which follow the same contour as the radiator Itself. Now on display at the Kern County Motors showroom, 1919 H street, local Ds Soto dealers. f TVETROIT; Jan. 11.—stylo is tho .-*-' keynote of the new De Soto for 4 1933.- The smart new model, promising to establish a standard in Style and offering performance and convenience features new to a car .of its price, is On display in De Soto dealer showrooms throughout America today. The interior treatment, has been patterned after that of a $3000 special custom body on an expensive French car, built for a European lady of title. De Soto has adhered closely to the details of the smart and stylish finish of this special continental model to achieve a high degree of distinction in Its 1933 car. In introducing 1 Its new car, the De Soto Motor Corporation makes the statement that it is the finest De Soto ever built. While retaining Do Solo's characteristic individuality, the designers have fashioned an automobile' that surpasses Its famed predecessor' from appearance .to performance with particular emphasis on style and convenience features. The new De Soto 6-cylinder engine Is of the generally approved L-hend engine design' now used by 80 per cent of automobile manufacturers. With a stiver dome cylinder head It develops 70-horsepower, assuring better performance and faster acceleration and Is capable of a smooth speed of 78 miles an hour. The piston displacement is 217.77 cubic Inches and the bore and stroke 3*£x4% inches. % i . A red head motor, developing 88 horsepower, is option at slight extra cost. Featuring a host of mechanical improvements and additions are a coincidental* starter, eliminating the need for a separate starter pedal and providing for an assurance against stalling the motor and also an automatic choke. These two advances together virtually eliminate any thinking necessary in connection with starting the engine even in the coldest weather. Ail that is required to start tho engine is to step on ,the accelerator—a valuable feature also In connection with the possibility of engines stalling. Further, mechanically, the 1933 De Sotoi has a new transmission, silent 'in all speeds. & Webster are C. G. E.

(United Press Leased Wire) While the treasury is far In the red In most of Its accounts, it has $344,000,000 piled up In one fund. This Is the federal employes' retirement fund, which has been built up gradually through deductions of a few dollars from their pay each month. The money has been Idle ever since the. fund v was started—except that when an employe retires, he of course begins to receive monthly payments from It, Several proposals have been advanced recently to put the Idle balance to constructive work. On'e plan IH to lend some of the money to nonprofit corporations which would workers to by federal reasonably be formed construct priced homes and apartments. • Others suggested that government workers feeling the pinch of pay cuts and furloughs should be permitted to borrow from the fund. Many oppose this, fearing the borrowers never would replace the money and hence would have no retirement money for their old age.

She understood already the life from which E1I- xabeth Barrett has just escaped. Just as Elizabeth Barrett's poor health her Boml-InyalldlBm—had given Edward Barrett his domineering hold upon her life; so, at 16, Emily began to realize that her own fralllty waa to be used by Edward Dickinson as ox cune for many a veto. How Emily Dickinson fell In love with George Oould but was unable to marry him In the face of paternal opposition, became a recluse and distilled the lovely poems from her renunciation that were to moke her famous after her death were other highlights of Miss LeVnirs survey.

ROCKNE ROOMIER, MORE BEAUTIFUL v-*- Latfler, roomier, more comfortable-the new Rookne fix de luxe flve-paisengtr Mdan | 6 shown above and O !VM abundant proof of this company's detire to couple quality with low price* new Rockne six for 1933 was formally presented this week, P. D. Smith of the John R. Huff Company, Incorporated, local Rockne dealers, announced today. In making the nation-wide announcement of the new line, H. S. Vance, president of Rockne Motors Corporation, said "an examination of the new lines of cars shows that Rockne very definitely tafcea its place with the manufacturers who are not putting their emphasis on price alone but who believe that the American motoring public is not -willing to give up the roominess, comforts, Improvements, refinements and performance which have marked the steady progress of design over the years. "U Is appropriate that Hockne has chosen to remain In the quality group for StudcboJcor, tho sponsoring company, has always been a quality producer. "We do not believe that quai* ity should be' sacrificed to price. The events of the last two years Indicate that in spite o/ the depression the public Is not willing to reduce Its standards. When the depression first became intense, there was a tendency to fihout price and forget about value. In the last few months we have seen the tables turn." In the line are de luxe and standard five-passenger sedans; de luxe and standard coaches; de luxe and standard croupes with and without vumblo seats; do luxe and standard five- passenger convertible sedans and de luxe and standard convertible roadsters. All models have been lowered more than 1 Inch, adding to safety and stream-lined appearance. AH models are equipped with improved Stude,baker free-wheeling' in ull forward speds, plus synchronized-shift and silent second. Tho horsepower of tho Rockne motors has b>en increased to 70 at 3200 revolutions per mtnute. Automatic starting, introduced on the first Rockne sixes a year • ago and applauded by the public, Is on all models. Rockno motors are floated in live rubber nt all four points of suspension, giving a freedom of engine vibration. The chassis Is of the "X" frame design, which won Rockno many friends In 1932. Many other details of advanced engineering, such as electroplated* pistons, threaded noiseless spring shackles and quadruply balanced crankshafts are found In the new models. The wheelbase is 110 inches. This generous length, plus the low swung bodies and effective color combinations, give the car a genuine smartness In the most modern manner. The Rockne bodies are of one-piece aJl-stcel construction—/our basic steel sections fused into one by flush welding. Deaths caused by automobile crashes during the year-end holidays, the most extensive for this period on record, haye again spurred safety organizations in their demands that narrow main highways be widened. Figures Just compiled by the United States bureau of public roads show that 1008 miles o.f state highways with more than two traffic lanes were built ri 1931, bringing the total to 3790 miles. The California division of highways has Just advertised for bids for such a widening project in Tehama county, where It is proposed to reconstruct nine miles of old pavement with asphalt concrete, on the- West Side Pa- cfic highway north of Sacramento. The Job Is part of the division's unemployment, relief program. +-*r« Club Told of Plans osemite Evi TAPT, Jan. 11.—Plans for the sports pag-ennt scheduled for Yosemlte National Park this coming week-end were explained Tuesday noon at the regular meeting of the West Side Business Men's Club by Glenn Hood, chief lecturer and entertainer of tho Yo- semlte Park,, and Curry Company.
