The writers may tako stand for the senate-approved number, the House-approved number or no housing units, Mr. Mc- Walers said. The committee members will merely present facts of the issue which their investigation discloses, he said. The committee also registered "general accord" with National Chamber views In six major fields of action. The approved principles include "government economy — eliminating the waste and Inefficiency that plague many government agencies; federal taxes — keeping federal expenditures within the expected revenues without increas- IK . Ing taxes, thus applying the princl- pie of go-as-you-pay as well an pay-as-you-go; economic education —clarifying the manner in which unprecedented government expenditures and tax levies affect the cost of everything we buy. for otherwise business bets blamed for scarcities and hii'h prices.

To many owners, the mighty ISO H.P. V-8 engine that powers the Chrj-sler New Yorker is the most remarkable feature of this remarkable cnr. It is certainly Ihe most discussed automobile engine in many, many years. This is the engine with hemispherical comhii.stion chambers . . . the engine that gels more poircr out of every drop of gas. And non-premium gas at that! Actually, it pvits you in control of more power than you'll probably ever need use. You'll sense this . . . together with its unequaled response . . . Ihe very first yards you drive. H runs smoother, more quietly, and with less wear than any other engine ever built into an American automobile. . . . and it makes driving (both cruising and the short runs) more fun than you have ever known it to be'. But that's not nil. Along with this engine there are scores of other reasons, too, for driving a New Yorker before resolving on any new car. Like Full-time Power Steering that makes steering/iiv times easier . . . and your control fuv limes greater . . . than in ordinary cars. Like Power Brakes that cut needed pedal pressure by aa much as two-thirds. Like Oriflow shock absorbers that maka even bad roads feel "newly paved" . . . restful chair-high seat* . . . big, wide- opening doors ... big windows that let you see more. It's true . . . until you rfri'i* a Chrysler New Yorker you won't know what you'r* missing. Why not stop in today? CHRYSLER THE FINEST CAR AMERICA HAS VET PRODUCED T.I. SEAY MOTOR CO. • 121 E.
