Florists swamped with work, hired hundreds of extra workers. Blonde Hugs Blonde At Shoiv Auto Oivner Pays Heavy Fine After Ignoring Tickets PHILADELPHIA — (ff) — Police came across an abondoned car this weekend and towed it off. They had seen it before. In fact records showed they had placed 37 traffic summonses on it during the last ten months—without ever hearing from the owner. Yesterday Steve Kosolov, 19, of Bridgeton, N. J., walked into the station and inquired about the car. He was arrested. Chief Magistrate James J. Clother conducted a hearing and levied a $373.26 fine. Kosolov's father paid the fine and Kosolov went off with the car. Kosolov told officials he had recently moved from Wlmington, Del., but offered no reason for ignoring the tickets.

Travis Winsor and Patrick Humphreys, University of Southern California, said the drug had beneficial effects In 78 per cent of 125 patients, and was especially useful in treating chest pains. Patients were able to step up daily activities while taking the drug. Dr. Abraham Ferlrnan, in studies directed by Dr. Thomas H.

CONVENIENT TERMS 13-17 Frederick St DETROIT—0?>)—The car buying public may be growing increasingly price-conscious, but so, too, are the industry's manufacturing and merchandising divisions. Arguing the increasin? costs of production the manufacturers have won higher wholesale prices and passed much of the advance along to the retailers. The retailers not only pass the increases along to the car buyers, but also have tightened up materially in the trade-in allowances granted on used cars. Replacement sales represent the biggest part of the industry's retail, business. Trading an old car and ajhoma District in 1921. He failed to certain amount of casii for a newj w ' n re-election. Ex-Playboy,78 Believed Dead, Hunt Given Up QUINCY, Calif. — Wj.— Manuel Herrick, 78, whose antics as a Congressman from Oklahoma made nationwide news in the early 1920's, is missing in the snowburied California Sierra and believed dead. The frozen body of George L. Welch, 73, oi Colfax, Calif., Herrick's companion when they headed into the high country January 11, was found last Saturday by a search party. Herriclc, a Republican, went to Congress from the Eighth Okla- car is a tradition that began with the advent of mass production in the auto factories. ' Importance Stressed Without it there could be no high volume of production and sales in the automobile industry. So the car makers as well as the franchlsed dealers recognize the used car market as a very important part of the industry's overall operation. However, what's happening right now is that most would-be new car buyers with a used car to trade in expect considerably more for it than the dealer can allow. Generally the new' 'car .buyer is trying to oSset the higher list price of the new vehicle by getting more for his used car. For the most part the buyer just isn't getting the higher allowance; and he can't beat the depreciation by trying to sell the car to an individual or to a used car. dealer. In many cases the Individual himself has a car to dispose of before he buys another; the used car dealer hi many cases operates a business owned by a new car retailer. All this adds up to the fact that business for the new car retailer cannot be good unless the used car market is enjoying its share of prosperity. See Production Held Down You can hear much said in both the manufacturing and merchandising divisions of the industry about a new car shortage this year. The view is based on the assumption in both divisions that production will be held down to not more than 4,000,000 passenger cars for 1952. Yet it is true that many would- be buyers, finding the trade-in allowance is only about two-thirds of the original cost a year ago, will not buy new cars this year. Under the ..tighter credit restrictions a $100-a-month installment payment on a new car isn't uncommon. The motorist who has just completed, 15 or 18 monthly payments on his car and discovers it has depreciated anywhere from $1,000 to $1,300 often will require a lot of sales pressure before buying another. This is among the problems that lie ahead of the new car merchandisers this year. Some retailers are convinced they can sell all the new cars that will come from the factories this year. Others say they will Be put out of business unless there is a substantial easing of credit restrictions. In any event—new car shortage or not—the day when a 'motorist could swap his old car and a couple of hundred dollars for a new model seems to be gone for a long time to Netv Contact Lens Developed Is Tiny As Drop Of Water NEW YORK— (fi>)— A contact lens not bigger than a drop of water, and weighing less, has been perfected after 27 years of research. Dr. William Feinbloom told the Brooklyn Optometrical Society yesterday. The optometrist said the "water drop" lenses have been used for one to three years by boxers, baseball players, underwater demolition experts, circus performers, opera stars and actors. And in 93 per cent of the cases they were successful, he said yesterday. Feinbloom said the lens fits over the iris and is supported by a natural layer of tears. In the early '20's Herrick was labeled the "aerial daredevil _ of Congress and the sparkplug lover of Washington." He won the titles by flying around Washington in Army airplanes and from his heart- balm court suits, Anna Elizabeth Niebel, a Ziegfeld Follies show girl, sued Herrick for $50,000 breach of promise. Herrick in turn sued his pretty ex-stenographer, Ethlyn Chran'e, for $50,000 breach of promise, charging her refusal of his hand as related hi the newspapers had "ruined my value on the marriage market." Nothing came of either case. Search for Herrick has bean abandoned. His only known survivor is a daughter, Mrs. Ruth'W. Smith Chicago. Fallon Proposes Air Traffic Shift BALTIMORE —(/P)— Rep. Fallon (D-Md) urged last night that the bulk of Washington's commercial air traffic be shifted to Friendship International Airport as a safety measure. Fallon cited the tragic loss of 117 victims during the past two months as a result of three air crashes at Elizabeth, N. J. He said that shifting air traffic from the nation's capitol would reduce the likelihood of a similar tragedy there. (Downtown Washington and the White House are prohibited areas over which planes may not fly.) The Friendship Airport is located some 15 miles southwest of Baltimore. Fallon said he would ask the Civil Aeronautics Administration to "act without delay and not wait until a series of catastrophies strike our National Capital." He "added that Friendship is removed from any heavily populated area and is more modern and better equipped to handle heavy traffic. Furthermore, said Fallon, the CAA recognizes the inadequacy of Washington National Airport and is seeking some 37 million dollars in appropriations for a new airport near Burke, Va.

LIVE DANGEROUSLY * Assignment: America' Collegians Spared From Service In Army Display Their Fortitude IReg. TJ. B. pat. OHO By INEZ EOBB NEW YORK—(INS)—How happy every red-blooded American must feel today in the knowledge that the inter-collegiate slapping championship of the. world has been wrested from Russia by two Harvard sophomores! These Harvard lads have retrieved the international championship by slapping each other for 48 continuous hours and ten seconds, at the rate of one slap about every ten seconds, for a grand total of 17,281 slaps. It would be easy to write that they slapped themselves silly except that some suspicion exists they were already that way when the contest started. Anyhow, I guess this will prove to the Russians, once and for all, that anything they can do, we can do better, particularly at Harvard. I guess this will also prove to the United States as a whole how extremely wise and farsighted is the national policy of sparing college lads—I hesitate to use the term 'men" in view of this slapping episode—from the rigors of military service. The great decision on the part of the government and the military powers to spare the college man at all costs is beginning to pay off. Men who are willing to spare themselves no time or trouble, pain or publicity to wrest the slapping championship from the U. S. S. R. are obviously too fine and sensitive to be chasing Commies in Korea In company with their unlettered American brethren from grade and high school. This tale of collegiate derring- do will make inspiring reading -in the foxholes along the thirty-eighth parellel. I have just clipped the story, together with the pictures of the new champions, to send jny brother in Germany. It is bound. to thrill him, a veteran of five and one half-years in World War II who was retreaded into the army by Uncle Sam just one year ago. It will make all his alleged sacrifices—taking down the law shingle after only 18 months practice, kissing his wife of fifteen months good-bye and saying farewell to his two-months-old daughter—seem worth while. In' fact, I think this Harvard episode is going to make all the World War II retreads quit their shallow carping about recall to the services at the expense of' their civilian careers and their disrupted homes. This ought to make the respective wives of these retreads quit sighing, too. And kids of these retreads, if they start sniveling in public again because their old man is away in uniform, ought to be spoken to sharply. Let them all follow the example of these two self-sacrificing Harvard boys whose faces were puffy and swollen and whose eyes were red and bleary for lack of sleep after their ordeal. Did they complain? No! Yet it is terrible to contemplate that this happy preservation of the college boy from coarse contact with the military may vanish in another ten to twenty years. The House Armed Service Committee has reported out a Universal Military Training Bill, This bill would peremptorily snatch from the arms of his Mom, his college and his congressman each and every eighteen-year-old and put him in uniform for six crucifying months when he might otherwise be gulping goldfish. Think of it: It would put the collegian on an equal or democratic footing with the kid who can't go to college. Perish forbid! Naturally, the Moms, the colleges and many congressmen, needled by the aforesaid Moms and colleges, are going to delay passage of the Universal Military Training Bill as long as possible. Maybe forever. So perhaps we should not be too down-hearted. And now, would anyone care to join me in that fine anthem of my youth: "Don't send my boy to Harvard, the dying mother cried." Man, man; did Maw ever know her stuff in those days! Arnall Approved By Senate Group WASHINGTON—f/P)—The Senate Banking Committee yesterday unanimously approved former Gov. Ellis Arnall of Georgia to be the new price stabilizer. It took the committee less than one minute to act after Arnall had discussed his qualifications and beliefs about inflation with the senators for an hour and a half. Before taking office, Arnall must receive a vote of approval from the Senate itself.
