fACW BtGHT BLTTHBnLLB (ARK.) COURIER NEWS WEDNESDAY, MARCHV19M_ Guatemala's Economy May Be Injured by Liechtenstein Claim By CARLOS R. ESCUDEKO GUATEMALA ((AP) — Liechtenstein covers much less ground than many a Guatemalan coffee plantation, but the little European principality has a claim pending with the International Court of Justice that may cost Guatemala many a plantation and millions of dollars. The Guatemala-Liechtenstein dispute ifi over the nationality of Friedrich Nottebohm, a German native who got rich in Guatemala before World War n. Born in Hamburg in 1881, Notte- bohm became a citizen of Liechtenstein. Later he settled in Guatemala. By World War n he owned A banking house with an estimated working capital of 10 million dollars and coffee, sugar and cattle Interests. When Gutemala decided to take over the assets of enemy nationals during the war, ma-./ a German or German-Guatemalan lost out. Nottebohm was interned as a German and lost his properties. Released after the war. he returned to Europe nnci reportedly now is living in Liechtenstein. The little Rhine territory between Austria and Switzerland had been neutral during the war. Now Liechtenstein claims that Nottebohm's treatment as a German was illegal. It demands compensation for the original value of his confiscated property and payment of what the properties have earned in the interim. Local sources estimate compensation alone for Nottebohm could reach four million dollars. Profits earned by his farm properties since come to many more millions. Lands seized from the War- time internees are now part of the 117 state-owned farms. Some say they're the better part, producing many tons of coffee. Guatemala claims that Notte- bohm changed citizenship as a subterfuge to avoid confiscation and internment. Liechtenstein says the man was then and is now its citizen. The Nottebohm case may have far - reaching implications. Guatemala, still technically at war with Germany, is considering renewing relations with that country. Resumption of relations more than likely would 1-rlng official demands for payments to cover the properties seized from Germans. Estimates of the total involved vary between 50 and 100 million dollars.

Who says you can't have ff&taway and gas saving too ? A any automotive engineer will tell you, the goal in automatic transmissions has long been a design that would give top acceleration and top gas mileage—and still be absolutely smooth. Well, it's easy to step up acceleration, or gas mileage —but tough to do both together—unless a lot of gearshifting takes place, which cuts down on smoothness. oo Buick engineers looked to aviation for the answer—and brother! what a wondrous new magic they came up with! They took a leaf from the airplane's variable pitch propeller—which switches the pitch of its blades one way for quick take-off—and another way for better gas mileage aloft. They brought the same principle to Dynaflow Drive*-to the twenty WHW MTTt« AUTOMOBIlU AM IUIIT MJICPC Will BUIIB THEM propeller-like blades in the Dynaflow "stator." They engineered these blades to swivel like the blades of the plane propeller — and with the same results. In cruising and in all normal driving, the blades are angled for fuel economy—and you get a lot more miles from a tankful of gas. But when you have to move instantly— when you need quick getaway, or a sudden burst of safety- surge power to get out of a tight spot on the highway— you just press down flint fas pedal, ami you're off in a split second. You've never felt anything like it before-because there's never been anything like it before in an automobile. It's action that's sheer thrill-action that's backed by the highest V8 horsepowers in Buick history- action that's sending Buick sales soaring to record-high levels. Come in and try it, at the wheel of a Buick SPECIAL, CENTURY, SUPER or ROADMASTER. You have nothing to lose - and the most thrilling buy of the year to meet. *D)nal\ou> D,,:e is «WW on RriaJmtMr, ouional »t extra cost on other Series.
