SIXTEEN MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, APRIL 8 1936 MORE LUXURIOUS 1936 Models of Car Will Be Displayed at Summerhays Garage as Show Opens. Completely new and more modern than ever in appearance, more luxurious in style, and with a wealth of engineering development, the new Terraplanes for 1936 are here and will be on display at the Tom Summerhays company showroom floor, 120 Delaware avenue northeast where the auto show opens Thursday. Not only do the new cars attain entirely new standards of beauty, but they incorporate safety engineering features to a degree never before found in automobile chassis and bodies. In addition, there are a number of innovations of a fundamental nature which no cars have ever had before. Although these cars are still in the lowest price field, they are much bigger and finer than their predecessors of the same make.

So marked a difference does this new front end system incorporate in the riding qualities of the car that the manufacturers of the Ter- raplane have given the name. Rhythmic Ride, to the result of the synchronized and unified suspension system. True-Line Steering. This new front end system also introduces Tru-Une steering, bringing a new road sense to the steering wheel because of the accurate control of the steering system, regardless of road condition.

The opening devotionals were conducted by the Rev. Alexander S. Carlson of the First Congregational church. The report of the Rev. J. Lee Lewis of the First Baptist church, secretary-treasurer of the organization, showed $15.77 was collected at the good will Sunday program. This, it was stated, was almost sufficient to pay the rental and other costs. The Ministerial association re- ceived a check of $19.44 from the Union Missionary society. The association approved a plan for a peace program to be observed May 14, at which time Dr. Elmer A. Fridell of the First Baptist church, Seattle, Wash., the Rev. Raymond Bragg of Minneapolis, and President Edwards of the Friends university of Wichita, Kans., are to be the speakers. Sentenced 30 Days. HAMPTON -- Charles Blanchard was sentenced by J. Sikkema, mayor, Tuesday to serve 30 days at the I county farm on a charge of intoxication. Frozen Water Mains at Dumont Finally Thawed DUMONT--Watermains in the west part of town, which have been frozen for over five weeks, thawed out with warmer weather last bat- urday. The Rev. E. M. Miller family, which consists of 11 members including a small -baby, has been especially inconvenienced. They .pumped the cistern dry and carried drinking water from tie G. S. Brown pump Four families were served on the frozen main, G. S. Brown, Marion Stafford and Mrs. H. Acker- inann. a big husky-hydraulic system with the double safety factor of an automatic reserve brake of the rotary- equalized mechanical type. The bodv is more completely insulated than any -bodies previously made. The sound insulation of the Terraplane bodies for 1936 has been carried to an extremely hig-h standard. Various insulating materialsl are employed to damp out any possible vibration. The introduction of automatic draft elimination in the Terraplanes for 1936 brings a feature to this low price car which will be found for the first time in cars at any price. The system insures a supply of clean, fresh air to the occupants of the cars. It completes the all-year ventilating system in that it filters the incoming air supply, permitting air to only enter the car at a definite point when the ventilating system is in use. Body's Interior Beautified. The interior of the body has been beautified in many respects. Because of the V-form of the windshield, it is possible to tilt and curve :he instrument panel to make it more legible from the driver's seat. The instruments themselves nave been rearranged. In place of the water level gauge a water temperature indicator is now supplied. The ruby tell-tale lights for oil pressure and battery charging are continued. These lamps flash red on the instrument dial if the generator is not ·sftng or if the oil pressure is be- ow normal. Another feature called "true-line teerin?" which will be featured in onncction with the Terraplane this rear also results from this front end construction. It is achieved by the act that it is not necessary to com- romise the steering- layout in order o approximate correct steering un- er "all operating conditions. The orque arm control makes it pos- ible not only to design the steer- ng according to the strict theo- etical accuracies, but to actually maintain this accuracy on the car n practice. This results in a much letter driving- feel or "road sense" f the car- 1936 Chassis Longer. Terraplane chassis for 1936 are onger, wider and more rigid than n 1935. although the latter chassis vas outstanding in this respect. Th» ncreased dimensions, however, are equired for the bigger, wider, and onger body. With three inches added to the wheelbase and with the .rer.d at the rear increased from 56 .o oTU inches, a broader and longer :oundation for the body is provided. The distinctive Terraplane feature n which the bottom floor of the jody provides a rigid plate cross- member for .the frame is continued. This gives a complete juncture of body and chassis and provides a unified structure fo.r the entire assembly eliminating any line of weakness or break in structural strength and at the same time removing useless dead weight. There are a number of detailed improvements in the Terraplane engine for 1936, increasing its efficiency and ruggedness. The water- pump, for example, is now the pressure tyne instead of the suction type. "This provides a very effective flow to 'the car heater when installed. The carburetor on the new Ter- raplane has been improved and is now fitted with an anti-percolating device designed to prevent vapor lock in the float bowl. There is a spring-loaded needle valve in the float bowl which opens when the throttle is closed permitting vapor to escape. A further improvement in the gasoline supply system is in the use of a larger tank. The tank capacity is now 16V: gallons instead of the 11 gallon size previously used The electric hand installation which proved to be such a great success in the 1935 Terraplane is continued with detailed improvement. The appearance of the electric hand bracket on the "steering ! column has been materially improved, having been.given a streamline form to coincide with the interior trim of the car. A number of important changes have been made in the transmission, making it a. huskier, more rigid unit.
