TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 22, 1966 THE REGISTER.NEWS -- MT. VERNON, ItLf^OIS Cyanide Key To First Life? ST. LOUIS (AP) - Research KhemlstB at Monsanto Co. have discovered that a poison, hydrogen cyanide, may have been the key to the origin of life. Clifford N. Matthews, a Monsanto chemist, said today the sxperbnents have resulted in a new theory on the origin ot proteins, the main chemical substance In all life on earth. He said the experiments also may result in the development of synthetic foods. Matthews and Robert E. Moser, another scientist, said they mixed methane and ammonia. Then they shot eltetri«My throujrh the gaseous mixture for about 24 hours. The electricity was representative of the high energy believed to abound in primitive earth. The result was hydrogen cya* nlde gas which was allowed to stand and mbced with itself. "The result was a black solid," said Matthews and Moser. "Then we added water and the result wa^ a birown scum which we believe once covered the earth. Both scientists said the scum was full of protein-like chunks which contained amino acids, the natural ingredient of all natural proteins. "From this scum, we apparently have emerged," said Matthews.

CAhi DETROIT, (AP) - Grandmother Lillian Reynolds Wagner is far from ready for the rocking chah*. She has that new- car fever again — ever since she heard the news about electric cars. The attractive, whlte-hairtd Detroit lady was jubilant over reports that the electric-powered auto might make a comeback. She used to sell them. Ford and some other producers are.talking about electricity for cars as a. clean, efficient power source. Indeed, some experimental vehicles have already been built touse electricity-producing fuel cells. Mrs. Wagner, prOud claimant of the title of first auto saleswoman in the nation, expressed confidence that the electrii auto, if put into productibn again, would iind eonslderable popularity. "I sold my first electric car in 1915 when I was 15 years old, and I think I should have a chance to sell the first ot the new models when they are built,'.' she said. The four-time grandmother recalled that she had got into the auto sales business because her father, Joseph Reynolds was general superintendent-of Detroit Electric Co., one of the pioneer companies in buUdihg electric cars. "My career ak an electric auto salesman came about by accident," she said. "A customer who was buying an. electric auto for his wlfe^c^ed one day and asked, that nty.father have a s^ieiwoman bring die car out for a aeinonstration. "We, had. no saleswoman, so I was elected, and I got the. sale. the next five years. I sold over $880,000 worth, .d efectric autos, and..since retailed for about |3,30O, that . meant sales of e!V»r iOO oars-^lite a feat in dtose days." Many of Dirtrolf» elite; .were included In her .customers. Among them was Clara .For4 wife of industrialist Henry Ford. Since Henty Ford's Model l-was selling for about f400 at the time, Mrs. Wagner recalled that It was a feather in her oap to sell his wife a car at eight times i'the car as a Christmas present ''forWs wife.; -.^ >..-o:- ""Hie-wtanen • of yesteryear really loved their electric cars, and I am sure today'* women would, appreciate them just as much if the auto makers give them *• Chance to "do so," she said. ' : Mrs, Wagner recalled that one of the toughest parts of her .original car-sellir« days Was' that she had to'teach practically all the women eustOBierg how to drive; Her elaim as the.nation's first auto saleswoman was backed up by the. Automotive Old Timers Association, which gave her one of their national awards. She was delighted to be^ listed with such award winners as Gov. George Romney «i Mldygan, former president of American Motors;; Benson Ford, a Vic* president of.Ford -and grandson of Hemry Ford; Chrysler. Priesi- dem lynn A. Townsehd; and Edward Cole, vice president'of General Motors. Mrs. Wagner recalled that^e electric ear of her day had x range of about 100 miles on a battery diarge. "Most of our trips were short, and it was a. slniyple matter to plug the battery into an electric soelcef ea^ night to tcoNuge It," she said. "We used to figure that it eo «t about 15 s month for electricity for our auto batteries, and i think that the electric ear' the Industiy is talking about could be opntited on ab^t diet same amount." "t know ttjat all this auto cemi- panies have shiswn sohte' hiteiv est In revival of the dictric car but if ttiey bring It out, it will have to be as a nicely. siyMsd;' streamUncd cat* in • order ip compete with othet cars!"
