It's not as simple as that, but it approximates the newest wonder •which is coming out of Henry Ford's $5,000,000 experimental laboratory here. Satisfied with the results, Ford is now planning mass production of car bodies made of plastics, probably within a year. Ford some years ago gave his chemists orders to seek a tough plastic which could complete with steel. They finally found it. Unlike most commercial plastics, this new one resembles polished steel, but weiglis just about half what steel does. The panels are made or 30 per cent soy bean resin binder and 70 per cent cellulose fiber. The latter is made of 50 per cent southern pine wood, 30 per cent field cereal straw, ten per cent ramie. so satisfied with his own test and j the laboratory tests that he has'. authorized an order for a complete- | set of dies for the first road model, j A welded, tubular steel frame, i plus the plastic body, will make n i very much lighter car and thus! enable the user to get more mile-. age per gallon of gasoline.
