Both family- sedans and sports-type cars.are included in the various price classes. .Following a year marked by the re-establishment of Packard in the luxury car field, the company will! moye toward - the pattern of auto making which: once. gave fit.. dominance in the; top price group. Buyers will .be offered •&_ wide choice of engines;, power' arrange- ,-ments especially designed for open- road, mountain, rough terrainor city traffic driving; more than 40. selections of'interior'trim; and 23 . exterior color combinations.

Detroit. : . ... ;i . /.' v'.: '.Packard's medium priced Clippers, starting: at $2,544 F.O.B. Detroit, will be built in three' series, as the company : moves further, toward complete representation in its price classes. The company has added a Super series at the top of the Clipper line, which includes the Panama, a hardtop new to the line, 'the Super Club Sedan and the ..Super four-door sedan. Other Clippers are in the DeLuxe and •• Special series. The DeLuxe series includes a four-door sedan, a club sedan, and The Sportster;- a club sedan is designated as a Clipper Special. Reverting to the time-tested Packard philosophy that in the higher '. price cars people do not want radical, changes but rather a quality product which retains its style value, the company will maintain accepted styling continuity with attractive 'exterior appearance changes in its 1954 Packards. .In the ..Clippers,.-- however, there are considerable vances, particularly in : the strong new accent for the high, long rear fenders to give the cars a more youthful appearance. Leading mechanical innovation for the company in 1954 is the introduction of a new engine for its Packard line. Greatest capacity -engine in any American passenger car, the new straight-eight delivers greater passing, ability at .the critical driving speeds of 40 to : 70 miles per hour than any engine the firm has built in its 55, year history. It has a horsepower rating of 212 and is in all models except the Cavalier sedan. Sick List SAN JACDTTO MEMORIAL Lyndell Cox—31% -Arbor. • •' Mrs.'. Harold VE. Mutchler—3225 Nebraska. .

PHONE SMI Pierson Trial Underway- completion of arrangements for financing the initial costs of the project. "The world's fair project was announced prematurely," Dr. Kern- merer declared. "It's like a premature baby—it doesnt mean it will die but it does mean that it requires a lot of nursing along" "It has taken a lot of work but now we know what it takes to put it over, and we're moving in the right direction," he said. He estimated the initial expenditure by fair management at about J20 million, and said that will stimulate an additional expenditure of from $80 million to $100 million more on the fair. The ,biggest source of revenue from the fair will be in a percentage "take" from concessions, he said, estimating this "conservatively" at $30: million, or an average of |1 per visitor. "More than anythnig else, the World's Fair will advertise Texas and this area," he pointed out, adding that such a project will increase land values and, business prosperity tremendously m the Houston area. "It appeals to me primarily as an opportunity to build something permanent 'that we :need," : , Dr. Kemmerersaid. Texas doesn't have a natural history museum, a good art museum, an arboretum, an aquarium of a planetarium. We can have these things for ourselves and our children as * part of the World's Fair project, and they will be permanent installation*. "This- 1,000-acre tract should be developed as a public property, to give our expanding population something it needs for education and recreation-" Dr. Kremerer said he would like to see as the main theme of the fair "the American story—what made America great." He laid the underlying principle responsible for -American progress is the "Hebraic-Christian .tradition"—the respect for the rights of the individual. "We can tell this story to 30 million -people, including many foreign visitors who will take this message back .with them," he declared. '.•"..-.'• B. Woodruff presided over the first part of the meeting in the absence of outgoing President J. E. Rutter, who could not be present. New President Bond took over after the installation and introduced the speaker. Entertainment during the program included songs by Wendell Hawkins, Houston baritone,, and by the Horace Mann Sex.tet. composed of Ann Kelley, Mary Hartman, Jane G'Sell, Kay Daves, Maidie Baldwin and Connie Plagens. The sextet was accompanied by Marilyn Gilbert. Woman Is Pinned Under Dead Body '• -'A..; • • sAUBURN,, Calif., Jan. 12. —UP— A 73-year-old paralyzed .woman was pinned almost three days beneath the body of her husband who Had died of a heart attack, it was disclosed Tuesday. Mrs. Maude Wallrab was recovering jn a hospital from her ordeal during which she had no food or water. She. said her husband suffered a spasm and fell across her on the bed Friday night. Because of her paralysis, she was unable to move. The weight of her husband's body pinned her to the bed until Monday morning, when her plight was discovered. Elmer Olmsteaa, an employe of the sanitarium, rescued her. He had gone to the Wallrab home to find out why Wallrab, the head gardener at the sanitarium, had not reported for work. (Continued from Page One) ing so close to Hoppe that he was splattered with blood and had powder burns on his hands. Ha said that after the shots he saw. a pistol in Pierson's hand. Dishman further testified that he saw something .in Hoppe's hand. "I don't know whether it Was a weapon or not," he added. .'.' At this point, the attorney for the state made Dishman read hit earlier testimony before the.grand jury in which he had said he did not see a weapon or anything in Hoppe's hand. Under cross examination by the defense, Dishman testified that he saw the "weapon or something" in Hoppe's hand when he first came into the club. Dishman said he saw Hoppc go to a safe, then turn around and walk toward the front of the building where Picrson was sitting on the third stool from the front end of the bar. "Then is when I saw something in Hoppe's hand," the witnrss said, ' Dishman also salu lie worked for Hoppe at the time of the shooting. Asked for whom he works now, he replied, "Roxie Pierson." The witness said Roxie Pierson operates an Old Main tavern but that he doesn't know if she is any relation to the defendant or not. Dishman also testified he didn't know if the defendant had any connection with the tavern operated by Roxie Pierson and that Pierson was seldom around there. ; Again the state's attorney asked Dishman to read testimony he had made -'before the grand jury. In this testimony, Dishman had said he saw Clyde Pierson quite often at Roxie Pierson's tavern and that "you might say he runs it" No gun was found on Hoppe when he was examined after the shooting. ';: Interest in the trial mounted with the unexpected appearance of , Hoppe'e widow, red-haired Clara Hoppe. ;Both W. H. Tenison.of the district attorney's office and Defense Attorney C. D. (Dick) Little talked with Mrs. Hoppe at some length. The first witness was Patrolman C. L. Thompson of. the Baytown police department who presented pictures of the interior of Hoppc'* Club' 25 on Old Main, the scene of the pistol slaying. Little objected to the pictures as evidence on the grounds they did not present a full and true picture of the whole interior and they weren't a picture of any portion of the building as it was on the night of Nov. 25. Thompson testified he took the pictures on the morning of Nov. 26. Little's objection was overruled. Justice of the Peace Roscoe Zicrlein testified that Hoppe had died of bullet wounds in the chest. The 50-year-old defendant, a small bespectacled man with a hearing aid, showed little expression as the routine questioning progressed. But he wtjtched each witness closely, staring them straight in the eye. Questioning of jurors Monday indicated the state would not seek the death penalty for Pierson. The defense attorney's questioning indicated he planned to carry through with his allegation that Hoppc had threatened Picrson because he blamed the defendant for a tip that led to a raid on Hoppe's House of Blue Lights, a gambling club. Jurors selected were F. H. Norwood. George W. Harrison, F. V. Davidson, D. B. Robinson, E. E. Jaeger, Ralph Coons. Homer- B. Kimbro, W. I. Davis, J. I. Brannen, B. L. Jacks, all of Houston, Llewelyn Thomas of Pasadena and F. H. Metzler of Tomball.
