United States Nation on Wheels By SAM DAWSON NEW YORK (API—Americans' love affair with the family car is making weekend weather an economic force in many businesses, large nnd small. If the weather was miserable In your area the last few days, the effect might be felt in time as far away as Detroit and Akron or the oil fields of Texas—and certainly was noted sadly by dealers, resort keepers, highway restaurants nnd motels, both near you and some distance away. The United States hn s so many family cars—some 66 million, or 60 per cent of the world's total- that it is the only nation that can carry all its population at the same time (nt some three persons to a car). And if the weather was good this past, weekend in your area, and -you were on the highway, you may have thought all 66 million were out there, too. An entire summer of especially poor (or good), weather could mean a variation of up to 10 billion vehicle miles of highway travel. Such an extreme case would mean a difference of nboul 700 million gallons of gas burned up, 35,000 tires worn out, and perhaps 300 million meals at roadside eateries. Alto affected by weekend weather are many things, from the sale of bikinis and sun lotion to the picnic supplies and car rental services. For example, maker? of suntan or sunburn lotion s and creams have raised their annual sales from $7 million ten yeans ago to $14 million last year, 'Whether this summer's weekends are fair or dreary can have a lot to do with the Industry's reaching its 198,1 sales goal of $2 million. The $1.7 billion a year molel industry is particularly sensitive to family decisions to take off for a long weekend jaunt or to stay home because of the weather. Reapportioned Oklahoma May Appeal Decision OKLAHOMA CITY (AP)-Two appeals are in prospect from a sweeping federal court decision which reapportioned the Oklahoma Legislature. Atty. Gen. Charles Nesbitt filed Monday a formal notice of appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court and said he hopes there will be a decision before the 19G4 elections. Glen Ham, Democratic floor leader in the Oklahoma Senate, said a group of senators will ask the Supreme Court to hold up the decision handed down last Wednesday by a three judge court in Oklahoma City. It distributed scats in both the House and the Senate according to population. Leaders In rural areas,' which will lose representation under the court's redistricting, had been expected to ask for a new trial— delaying effectiveness of the court ruling and keeping the case away from the Supreme Court. There was some question whether the attorney 'general's appeal might block such a move. ~Sen. Ham suggested there is another remedy: an initiative petition campaign to get voters w adopt a home-made apportionment formula to be substituted for the one decreed by the court. Atty. Gen Nesbitt said the purpose of his appeal is not to delay . but to get a final decision as soon ai possible. "The greatest danger we now face \ s that this appeal might still be undecided at the filing time for legislative races next February," h 0 said. I Some 45,000 motels and motor i hotels, with 9,60,000 rooms, have a national yearly average occupancy of 69 per enif. flood weather can raise this by 1 per cent and Rl\Tn an even greater boost to profit*. Resort hotels suffer from a prolonged wet spell, but motels are even more sensitive to weekend weather prospects. As Secretary of Commerce Luther It. Hodges recently told operators of Howard Johnson's R50 roadside restaurants and 150 moto r lodges, some tOO million Americans make 23 million trips for long or short distances each year. Weekend weather was a prime economic factor with his audience. It also is with many others, Including Holiday Inns of America, which has 388 Inns in 41 states, and Ramada Inns, based In Phoenix, Arizona, but operating roadside hotels across the nation. the Automobile Manufacturers CROSSWORD By Eugene Sheffer 44- 49 22 41 \lo 31 13 26 So S\ 33. 4(0 43 4o \Q 33 47 II 4-6 HORIZONTAL 1. paid notices 4, courageous 9. spread grass to dry 12. varnish ingredient 13. style of type 14.
