Chairmen Maybank (D-SC) and Speiice (D-Ky) of the Senate and House Banking Committees at once introduced bills to carry out tin- President's ideas. Maybank announced hearings starting March 4 In hopes of getting a bill to the floor by April 1. Spence said the House committee probably would run IU hearings about the same time. If these plans work out. Congress should IK able to act well before the present law expires June 30. Republican law-makers available for comment said the President probably would get a onc-yenr extension, not two. They said they would try to ease the present "stifling controls" rather than strengthen them as the President asked. Ayree to Several Changes Democrats jjolnted out that key committees already had agreed lo change several sections of the law at which he aimed his sharpest criticism. They Indicated a law fairly satisfactory to the President should not be too hard to achieve. The Senate Banking Committee today hears Ellis Arnall. former governor of Georgia, testify on bis nomination to be the new price stabilizer. Little opposition !s expected. Arnall would succeed Michael Di- Sa!)e, who is going back lo Oil to to try for a U. s. Senate scat.

It's Loaded— Before you drive the Golden Anniversary Cadillac, there is one thing we should like to impress upon you: It's loaded —so be careful! 1 here's more power in that dynamic engine than you'll, ever need—except for the rarest emergency. And it should never, never be used for dramatic display on the get-away. If somebody else wants the honors when the lii<ht turns green—let 'em go. You don't have to prove anything, anyway. But that great power works for you—even when you're not unleashing it to the limit. It works for you as a reserve —and reives you that easy, quiet, flowing ride which makes a"Cadillac such » joy to own and such a thrill to drive . . . It gives you that slow-moving engine—that simply loafs at all legal speeds—and which is a literal Methuselah when it comes to long life ... THE GOLDEN ,1 N NIVE ft SA ft J' And it is a primary reason for that unbelievably low upkeep expense, at which Cadillac owners never cense to marvel. Some fleet owners have found, for instance, that Cadillacs cost less to operate and maintain than any other cars they have ever used. And the easy-going engine, that necer operates under strain, is a big factor in this economy. Yes—Cadillac's great power works for you—and r "'"", ai y—*nd is one of the vital reasons why Cadillacs performance is so outstandingly different. liut we trust that no Cadillac owner will ever use it for dominating the highway. To do so is not only counter to the rules of safety—but it is not in keeping with the graciousncss the motoring public has come to expect from the person who sits at the wheel of a Cadillac.
