FRIDAY, MABCH 11, 1938. THE DAILY COURIER, CONNELLSVILLE. PA. PAGE FIVE. SHORT WAVf RADIO BEAMS TO ELIMINATE COLLISIONS PREDICTED FOR MOTORiCARS NEWS OF THE COURTS NEW YORK, Mar. 11.--A preview of the automobile of the future has , been offered by two scientists who predict that it will have, in effect: 1. A battery of windshield wipers under the car to remove "hazard zone" dangers. 2. "Invisible eye" control. 3. SKort wave beams to eliminate collisions. ' Eliminating the hazard zone-where skidding throws a car out of control--will be one of science's greatest achievements in making automobiles safer, according to Professor John M. Lessens, of Mas- 'sachusetts Institute of Technology, who maintains an office here. Lessells explained that skidding on ·wet pavement is caused by a film of water between the road and tire. "If we can instantaneously create a dry surface, over which the tire is always passing," Lessells said, "the car's brakes will keep it under control. Science has already solved rr_any problems that appear to bo just as difficult. In this case I anticipate that some way will be found to give us, in effect, a battery of windshield wipers under the car, to remove the danger of the hazajd zone." Dr. Miller McClintock, director ot the Harvard University Bureau for Street' Traffic "Research, predicted that science will develop steering by unseen hands, electric bumpers, two- way radio 'to warn of approaching cars and automatic highway illumination. "It can safely be predicted that in time we will come to what we call automatic channelizers," Dr. McClintock said. "It is possible to lay in the pavement itseli electrical cables which, when a car comes to a dangerous curve or an obstruction, would automatically take the steering wheel from the driver by radio control and center the car over the cable and steel it safely around the curve or obstruction." Describing what he called the "electric bumper," Dr. McClintock said that scientists could foresee the installation of infra-red lights in the rear of automoblies which would actuate photo-electric cells in the front of other cars. By this method, the speed of a car could bo automatically reduced if it overtook another car too rapidly. Coal Commission . Draffs Program to Establish Prices WASHINGTON, Mar. 11--The National Bituminous Coal Commission met today to formulate procedure for re-establishing minimum prices on soft coal, a task that may require more than four months.

WILSON United Press Staff Correspondent. WASHINGTON, Mar. 11.--Con- ressional leaders today predicted djournment of this session by June on the basis of an informal undcr- ,anding that President Roosevelt r ould not propose further legislation. A more conservative forecast was iat Congress would adjourn some- ime during the first fortnight of unc. That would leave 12 to 14 vceks for remaining legislative busi- ness. Adjournment by mid-June probably would permit lime to dispose of wage and hours legislation if the House leadership can agree on a moderate bill acceptable to Southern Democrats. Belief that Mr. Roosevelt would not propose futlier legislation to Congress at this session is founded not only upon his recently adopted "hands off" policy but on statements made by the President to individual legislators.
