t Sunday, Aug. 18, 1935 Auto Industry Prepares for 1936 Models Three Manufacturers Start Work on New Lines BY KENNETH K- MACDONALD U nited Press Correspondent DETROIT, Hie automobile industryits plants humming with the activity of nearly 300,000 workers Saturday prepared to swing into active production of its 1936 models after having experienced one of the most successful years since the boom days of 1939. Three manufacturers have start ed work on the new models, three suspended operations on the 1935 cars last week, and four other niants are exDected to complete this year's production before the end of August. Tool and die shops have recalled their workmen and are rushing dies for the new models. Independent shops are working day and night shifts to furnish the industry the tool, jig and fixture work necessary. Plan Engine Changes The industry as a whole will build its 1936 cars along lines made popular this year. Changes, if any. will be in engineering ratner tnan in ae Kitm. Rumors are heard of new batten-, induction and injector sys tems as well as the radical plan to use fuel oil in place oi gasoline, The Ford plants, closed for inventory and summer vacations the past two weeks, have resumed pro-nction and, it is believed, are carry ing on preparations for the new models. Eight months ago Henry Ford announced plans to produce at least 1,000,000 cars in 1935. That mark will probably be passed sometime in October, shortly before the plant closes down for the shiftover to 1936 production. Production Holds Up Along with the shift to new pro duction the Industry intensified expansion plans started several months ago. General Motors, largest producer in the field, last week announced a $50,000,000 building and exnansion urogram. Others have done the same on smaller scales. Reasons for the continued high production is undoubtedly the sustained demand for the 1935 cars. Purchase orders now on hand have reduced new car stocks to an estimated 325,000 units, or a little more than a month's supply. Used cars stocks, however, went up last month as a result of more liberal trade-in allowances which followed removal of code restrictions.

E - Six special white test cars will pass through Madison Tuesday in a 25,000 mile test run being conducted as part of the continual testing program of the Shell co. The fleet has been routed through every one of the 48 states, Canada, and Mexico. Comprised of six new cars, two Fords, two Chevrolets. and two Plymouths, the fleet is engaged in making exhaustive tests of Shell products covering every driving condition. t A detour has been placed in effect on US 51 and STH 26 south of Janesville. It is short and in good condition. Other detours of special interest around Madison remain unchanged. , ' o o Right here and now we're going to settle this question about distances between Chicago. Madison and the Twin Cities. It is 419.4 miles from Chicago to St. Paul via US 12 through Madison, Baraboo, Tomah, Black River Falls and Eau Claire, and 417.8 miles via US 14 and US 61 through Madison, Rich land Center, LaCrosse and Winona i . .. . .. The shortest combination is 412.5 j the like. There"s congestion to con-miles, the longest 419.4 miles. US J sider seriously, and some keep the 12 is paved all the way, while US i tourist in the home state as long as 14 has considerable black top and a little gravel. As every motorist knows, there is considerable argument among the people interested in the promotion of highway traffic between Chicago, Madison and St. . Paul over the two principal rival roads, US 12 and a combination of US 14 and 61. M. W. Torkelson. director of regional planning with the state highway commission, is responsible for the figures above and several more which I will quote later on. "Per sonally," Torkelson explains, "I felt ! mere was noc mucn euierence in ; the distance, but I became sufficiently interested to address inqui-ies to the state highway departments of Illinois and Minnesota, which enabled distances to be fiured out accurately." Torkelson found the lo? for US 12 to be 405 miles from Chicago to the intersection with US 14 between Cary and Crystal Lake. 111., 19.9 miles to the state line, 81.8 miles to Madison, 260.9 miles to the Minnesota state line and 15.9 miles to St. Paul, a total of 419.4 miles. The US 14-61 combination lines up as 46.2 miles from Chicago to the intersection with 12. 23.4 miles to the state line, 70 miles to Madison, 139.4 miles to LaCrosse, and 133.8 miles to St. Paul, a total of 4173 miles. By states, the two routes line up like this: us i: In Illinois.... 60.8 In Wisconsin.. 342.7 In Minnesota.. 15.9 US 14-61 74.6 209.4 133.8 419.4 417.8 The shortest route between the two cities via Madison is via US 12, 40 J miles from Chicago to the intersection with US 14 between Cary and Crystal Lake, US 14 to Madison, 98.4 miles, 14 to LaCrosse and 61 to i c "-ay x woma preier to trans iof cther ttiss than just mileage ! 111 routing motorists between the two places. Tourists who merely ask for the shortest route would be given the 12 14 and 61 trail. Tourists who prefer the paved road would be given US 12, 14 and 12. as would those who wanted to see Devils lake and the Dells. Those who preferred the coulee country and the Missisippi river drive would be sent over 12. 14 and 61. Those who hate to chance highway numbers would follow 12 all the way. YouU notice that I prefer the 12 and 14 route between Chicago and Madison. It is not only the shortest but it avoids old-type paving and congestion in Wisconsin. Torkelson's figures for the Chicago-Madison routes siaflfl mm m W . ELECTRIC SERVICE Phone F. 1311 Madison Test Car Fleet Coming . 4- ;ye..-- J 'Car'trsri v : .jj ' - show US 12 to be 143.6 miles, 19 14 to be 144.6 miles, but the US 12 to Cary and US 14 route to Madison is only 139.3 miles. Torkelson's figures show the US 14-61 combination to total 273.2 miles between Madison and St, Paul, while US 12 totals 276.8 miles It is 139.4 miles from Madison to LaCrosse via 14 and 133.8 miles to St. Paul via 61. The US 12 route is 260.9 miles from Madison to the Minnesota state line and 15.9 to St, Paul. Tourist directors sometimes bring other things into consideration be sides road conditions, scenery and possible so heU pay more gasoline tax and spend more money there. I'll let you in on a secret I insist I can drive US 12 and 16 to LaCrosse just as fast as you can go via US 14, even though the former route is some 10 miles longer and more congest ed. I take US 14 about once a year jast to vary the scenery and to see what's been done on the road. One hope in saying this is that it will make the Richland Center boosters mad, so mad they'll rare ritit lip on their hind legs and . '"(."""J commission will have to pave all the rest of 14 to save the official skins. Then I'll blissfully switch to 14. f f o A modernistic solution of Chicago's tangled traffic problem is seen in favorable reports of experimental airplar.e-radio traffic direction. Hovering over thousands of holiday motorists last, Sunday, Herbert H. Burns, chief of county highway police, radioed a Chicago broadcasting station concerning heavy traffic areas. The information was sent to patrol cars which acted to alleviate the jams. Mr. and Mrs. Langdon Divers, Madison, ar.d Mr. and Mrs. II. E. Rogers, Viroqua, have returned from a 3,430-xnile trip of which only 30 miles was on gravel. They averaged 14.8 miles to the gallon with their Buick 8 on the tour throuE-h Canada and the east. They went through Chicago, preferring the city to the Elgin route, entered Canada at Windsor, the bridge being like an air-piano ride, and found the best tourist cabins at Alymer, Ont. Canadian roads are marked the best of any. Divers found, and Toronto was particularly easy to drive in. Quebeck streets were filled with persons hurrying to church via horse and buggy, but everyone was dressed in the latest styles. The narrow, one-way streets with homes built right up to the walks compelled motorists to blow the horn at every corner, resulting in a bedlam of noise. A new bridge to the Isle cf Orleans opens up a 42-mile drive with a beautiful view of the falls. Motorcycle cops lead parades of motorists over the macadam roads, often traveling at 35 miles an hour for 20 miles or more. Then the ccps turn off. and the parade leaps forward. Divers remarked. He recommended the Quebeck bridge and the trip through Maine to Bangor and Bar Harbor, where he saw more timber than anywhere on the trip. Divers suggests thai in Boston, if the party is large, it is cheaper and faster to get a taxi to visit points cf interest. Ke returned on the Mohawk trail. From New York he found US 6 better than 23, US 6 beir smooth, level and straight with few towns. The autcmotUe industry has supplied its key labor with the steadiest etnpioyment in istorv this vear.

' THE WISCONSIN V 4 1 w i mm ij . mm "f Law Provides for Electrical Co-ops, Alvin Reis Says Farmers who would take advantage of the federal rural electrifi cation program should organize as a cooperative association under chapter 185 of the statutes. Chief Counsel Alvin C. Reis of the public service commission, advised in an opinion rendered to the engineering department of the commission. Such a cooperative association legally may deal with both members and non-members, but if it restricts its dealings to members only and does not hold itself out to serve others it is not a public utility organization under previous rulings of the commission, Reis said. If it does hold itself out to serve members as well as non-members, its character is such as to stamp it as a utility and it must comply with the provisions of the public utility law and general orders of the commission, he pointed out. A certificate of authority must be obtained under such circumstances for each municipality into which the utility extends, and the requirements of the statutes as to local permits for placing poles on highways also apply. Such an association has the same legal responsibility for negligence. as has any corporation. Reis added. Anti-Mueller Synod in Silesia Dissolved BERLIN (U.R) The official German news agency Saturday announced dissolution of the anti-Mueller confessional synod in Silesia on the grounds that its leader. Bishop Zaenker, represented i: as an "official" evangelical body. show about as little courtesy, spprtsmanship or consideration as I ever want to see again. He just about ran down a man on a bicycle, forcing him around the corner and up on the curb. It was obvious that the cab driver would have chalked up another victim to his credit if it had not been that the fellow on the bicycle was the better driver. "Stuart C. Hawley, the expert who made a traffic survey here, has the wrong slant on the city's traffic problems. He does not know or realize that a city is a place where people live and make a home for themselves so they can be happy if possible. In order to live these peo-must walk because it is not normal to live one's entire life in a car. Yet Hawley made no provision for the betterment of traffic conditions for pedestrians. "Perhaps Hawley had something to do with turning off che traffic light at Gorhara and State st. My wife and I have been nearly run over three times in the last two weeks and at the same time have lost several minutes in trying to cross. Is it any worse for the people in cars to be delayed a minute or two than the people on foot? I have not walked down oto from where I live more than once in the last five years I always drive and consider myself a motorist but I never feel that I have more rights on the street than the people walking or riding a bicycle. "People have the wrong psychological slant on this traffic problem, and it cannot be cleared up until the people clear themselves up mentally. In the radio newscasts, for instance. Evjue and Doudna use the rubber stamp phrase "the car failed to negotiate the turn" or left the road or ran into the side of a freight train, just as though the driver of the car was not there. The responsibility is still not being accepted by the motorist or being laid at the right door. "No matter how many times a year cars are tested at a safety clinic the tests still can't stop drivers from going out and killing people. The drivers are the ones to be tested, because if the drivers could pass the right test they would keep their cars in shape without being forced to do so. " "The car and its driver comprise a unit on the road. If the car can pass inspection it still leaves the driver (half the unit) perhaps unfit and unable to pass, a menace to humaruity. The proposal for the safety test cf cars is just another excuse to codge the blame and responsibility in motor traffic. "To me all the traffic counts, surveys, traffic lights, ear inspections, and excuses for accidents show that man is trying to make the world a safe, place ta live in. but doesn't realize that man himself is, so far, the main issue. "No matter how perfect a system of traffic control we have, it motorists will not abide by traffic laws and cooperate the system will no: work until we get mechanical robots, which will abide ty rules better than man. at the wheeL -LANGDON DIYEHS- STATE JOURNAU 3,197 Cans Filled at Community Centers in Week Exactly 3,197 cans of vegetables were tucked away in family cellars last week as Madison's community canning centers experienced the largest output of the 1935 season. The week's work brought the total canned at the board of education centers this year to 11.993 quarts. Community Union gardeners, counT ty relief clients, and marginal families use the centers lor conserving their surplus garden produce. An average of 600 quarts a day were "put up". at the three centers held at East high. Longfellow, and Franklin schools last week. Tomatoes made their first appearance, adding a new color note to the green, yellow, white and orange of other vegetables. All centers had a larger output than the preceding week. South Madison families put up 880 quarts at Franklin, 582 cans were filled at Longfellow, and East high topped the list with 1,735 cans. The season's totals show 6,048 cans filled at East. 3,064 at Longfellow, and 2,881 at Franklin. Conservation will continue this week. Prop Wash by Walter Choinski "Steel Tapes, Pins Lay Out Puzzle at Airport." I looked again to be sure. there was no mistake. Here at Camp McCoy, where the 75's and 155's prevail, a mistake may cause death and although the consequence of an error in reading my Wisconsin State Journal of Aug. 12 would not be as tragic, still aeronautics is quite close to my heart. There was no error there it was in big type. I continued: "Men with steel tape lines and transits being a topographical engineer my blood began to quicken) moved in a mysterious manner in the wide open spaces at Madison Airport . . I couldn't read further the excitement was too great I rushed from my quarters scatterbrained hunting for Madisonians Ray Owen and Byron Beveridge silently shouting hosannahs to myself. "The two colonels are on inspection duty" the orderly reported. Who would listen to my song of joy? "Madison's new airport was begun the surveyors were on the job what better indications were needed to prove that our airport project had been approved where is ev eryone Arthur Burghduff was from Madison, too, Where's he?" shouted my brain. "Where's everybody somebody tell me Where's everybody? But no one answered my mental enquiries so I returned to my tent and for want of listeners resumed reading the article. "I don't know what happened to the adjutant. Colonel Owen, but when I came to his tent I saw him lying there and this newspaper was in his hand," I heard someone in the distance whisDer. "Walter, drink this." And as I regained consciousness Ray Owen looked at me quizzically and waited for an answer. "Nuts." said I, "the circus is in Madison." In passing it is only proper to mention that Howard A. Morey is now operating the Royal Airport under a personal lease hoping that interest in aviation can be sustained until something definite is done ; about the new airport for Madison. ( However, only day service is avail-t able. o One of the many phases of aviation the layman is interested in but seldom seems able to secure information about is the operating costs cf a modern commercial airplane. The data presented is based upon the operation of a four place, $6,000 monoplane, 300 pay load hours per year. Interest at 6 Depreciation at 25 Complete Insurance 4.500 gal. of gasoline at 13c $ 360 1.500 1.000 810 90 350 90 gal. oil at $1.00 One Major motor overhaul .. Three hour inspections with minor replacements on plane 15 motor check Miscellaneous repairs Hangar rental for one year .. Advertising and commissions The tctal amounts to $ 75 75 100 180 540 or $1653 per hour. Considering the cost of maintenance an operator fying passengers on a fifteen minute pleasure hop must receive not less than $150 per passenger cf $5.40 per load. This nets the operator $18.00 per hour of a profit of $1.07 per hour. j ah t.cc.i.s tiitiac inures ii must be remembered that commercial op erations are lar more costly than private. The private flier rarely averages 300 hours per year and consequently the figures for gasoline, oil. service checks and overhauls are considerably lower, while suen ire as advertising and commissions do no; exist. Recently a very prominent Minnesota man flew his privately-owned plane to Madison for a visit. He landed at the Royal Airport The visiter was so impressed with cur city that he decided to remain over night. The present hangar space at Royal Airport was too small to ac-cc mod ate his plane. It became necessary to either remain in Madison to enjoy it's hospitality and expose the plane to the bad weather prevalent at that time or return to Minnesota that very evening. Ke decided to remain. During the night it rained, and if the rain cn that right reached the intensity it did here at Camp McCoy it must have -washed the milk off your back porch. as Roundy would say. The following cay cur guest returned to the pert, unue ashed his plan, boarded is and pushed the starter. Nothing happened and nothing continued to happen far two hours, and my infermant ended with -you can guess when he said he win pay Madiscn another visit. WANT AD BADGER 6X Wisconsin A AND BY The conductor of this column, who has had considerable to say about the use of copper sulphate in Lake Monona, was among those taken on a tour of the lake last week by Dr. Bernard Domogalia, city biochemist in charge of the chemical treatment to prevent algae growths and odors. Dr. Domogalia demonstrated to us that Monona, from a standpoint of cleanliness, is far superior to Waubesa and Kegonsa, and not only showed us extensive weed beds but also took samples of water to prove that it contains large quantities of wriggling protozoa that provide fish food. He showed us texts and scientific data to controvert the statement of the Connecticut bureau of fisheries that repeated doses of copper sulphate, even in diluted applications, have a cumulative effect destructive to the food supply of small fish. The evidence presented by Dr. Domogalia was incontrovertible, as far as it went, we non-scientific members of the party having no comparative data to demonstrate what the lake's condition would be if copper sulphate were not used, or to dispute the quality of the organisms we saw as fish food. Nor were we shown anything to solve the mystery of why the fishing is so poor in Monona. Monona IS cleaner than Waubesa and Kegonsa. Nobody can dispute that after seeing all three lakes on the same day. But it isn't the Lake Monona I knew as a boy! There are weeds, but they haven't that clean appearance shown by the vegetation in the lake a quarter century ago. The water is comparatively clean, but not really clear. There are 30 varieties of weed growth in the lake at present. Dr. Domogalia told us. There are patches, indeed, of the desirable "pickerel weed" and eel grass, which furnishes food for ducks. But these patches, wherever found, are dominated and seem almost choked, by a profusive growth of a grassy-looking pond weed, one of the Potamogeton I! en us, we were informed. It is hard to believe that this weed can be an asset to the lake. Perhaps it provides cover and food for small fishes, but it's mean stuff when j-ou cast a plug into it. It clogs the pro-pe'Iors of boats, breaks loose in great masses, and washes up onto the shore. Crews of men were passed by the inspection boat, throwing pitchforks-full of the floating weeds onto the shore to be picked up and carted away.

ILUMIE RUSS PYRE treme skepticism. But Bud and Harold Schubert saw unquestionable proof with their own eyes during a cruise over the lake in quest of white bass. A short distance out from Bernard's landing, they spied a large fish, floating belly up. "It can't be a pike," Bud insisted. "There aren't any in the lake!" But they rowed closer for a better look and, sore enough, it was a walleyed pike, 35 inches long. Tbey estimated its weight would exceed 10 pounds. The fish apparently had been dead not more than a day, as its gills were still red and it was not badly bloated. There was nothing to indicate the cause of its demise. Trout fie hing of a sort to arouse envy in the breast of any angler who aspires to catch two-pound brookies but has to content himself with eight- and nine-inchers in Wisconsin streams, was described by Tom Coleman upon his return from Ontario recently. Tom and his brother-in-law. Dr. Jerome Head of Chicago, spent five days in July, canoing and fishing on the Morrison river, a tributary to the Albany river which flows into James bay. The stream, which is seldom reached by anglers, yielded them only 25 trout, but they were ail lusty "square tails" averaging 17 to 19 inches. One day when the fish were feeding hungrily, Coleman caught fix nice ones in an hour's castinj. All the trout they hooked, Tom re ported, were taken on hair flies fished wet, about two inches under the surface. A hair-fly McGinty was especially effective. Although they frequently found the trout rising, he said, they could I not get them to take a dry fly at any time during the trip. Every trout they opened, Tom reported, was found to be gorged with draron flies, and that's another edd slant on the queer feeding habits of the trout. Did you ever hear any angler report a good cat?h on natural or imitation dragon flics? H. M. Wood, night cperatcr at the State Journal, re fused to let a little thing like a brcken line cheat him out of a 12- pound northern pike Friday night.
