A Southern California rfiaflU- i facturer has been making a lightweight, two-passenger electric car for six years.

The spark behind develop- J ment of the electric car comes ] as ttiuch from the negative fac-1 inrs of noise and air pollution ' from gasoline driven vehicles,' as it does from the great poten-; tial market. ' 1 W.J. Clapp of the Kdisoni Slectric Institute, an organize-j .(ion ol electric utilities, con>j mented recently that one auto- j mobile traveling 30 miles at 60 j i miles an hour consumes more j breathable air in that time than i 100.000 people. j Clapp's viewpoint is perhaps | prejudiced, but the point re- 1 mains that many Americans are becoming deeply concerned with the air they breathe and t feel the aulomobile is one of the ! chief contributors to pollution, j The fact that (he electric car: has nol ypt met with more ac- i reptance is partially a tribute to the effective promotion of gaso-1 line driven cars by the big man- { ufaclurers. In England, for ex-1 ample, 80 per cent of the vehi- j cles used for door-to-door deliveries are electric. The obstacles are real, howev- j er. How do you pack enough j batteries into the car without! eliminating the driver's space j or increasing the weight to the i point of diminishing return? I Recharging is a problem also, j There are physical limits to the! rale at which balteries can be I charged. An experimental vehi- j cle being used by General Elec-; Iric, for example, requires eight hours to recharge. And there is another obstacle i also. It is habit. Although elec-! trie utilities are in Ihe door-lo- j door business as much as the j milkman or the mailman, few I utilities use anything but gasoline-driven vehicles. New Artificial Heart Device Developed by Cooley's Team NEW YORK ( AP) - Dr. Denton A. Cooley and his co-worker Dr. Domingo Liotta have developed a new artificial heart device that Cooley says will be kfept on standby for use when a' transplant is needed, but no hUman donor heart available. "Within six weeks," he said, "We will have tested the new- $st device." , Cooley rejected criticism of his use of another artificial Mart in Houston last April 4 on Haskel Karp, 47. Karp lived for 65 hours with the artificial heart before a donor could be found to supply a human heart. He died April 8, 38 hours after the h'uman-heart transplant. •f'Cooley (old a session of the annual convention of the 'American Medical Association meeting here Monday that Karp was "at the point of death." i "If you have a dead heart 1 and a live body and a live central nervous system," Cooley said, "I can see no moral ol> i jection to utilizing the artificial ; heart." i The use of the first device produced by Cooley and Liotta i touched off a heated controversy and prompted Dr. Michael De Bakey, a rival heart surgeon, to ask for an investigation to see if federal guidelines were violated. The original heart, Cooley | said, did not pump as strongly j after it was implanted in Karp ! as the surgical team wished. '< ''The output was somewhat ennedy Calls in Bankers New Round of Parleys ASHINGTON (AP) ~ Secre- the Treasury David M. is calling in a second bankers in his attempt nation's growing in- head off the possihi- interest rate in- jjedy announced the chief ffJ cers of 25 ma J° r been invited to meet ' Wednesday morning inflation anU related lauding the current of interest rates." the meeting would be similar lo Kennedy's | first session with the financial i leaders.

Chesney Martin Jr. met with • two dozen representatives of the i largest banks July 7. i The spokesman said the i Wednesday meeting probably I would complete Kennedy's talks ', with bankers. He has pledged to meet later with representatives of major corporations. The two groups of bankers, ' Treasury said, represent more ; than 50 per cent of the nation's total commercial bank deposits. A main purpose of the meetings has been to convince bankers—and the public—that the administration is serious about controlling inflation. marginal," he said. "We wanted to increase it, but it was working at the maximum. Cooley said he thought the marginal output may have contributed to Karp's eventual death after the transplant, although what he called "enthu- j siastic" drug therapy to prevent j rejection may have been more important in making Karp susceptible to the pneumonia, which was the principle cause i of death. I Cooley said in the new de-! vice, the chambers and pump-' ing mechanisms have been redesigned, with compression working from four directions instead of one, as in the original device. He said if a person's heart "died" during open heart surgery, it would justify the use of an artificial heart until a human heart was available. "The source of donors has temporarily dried up," Cooley i said, and cited the poor survival rates as the cause. But | the results worldwide on heart , transplants, he argued, are as i good as the early results with i kidney transplants. } "Now is the time," he said, "to do more cases rather than less." Cooley has performed 20 heart transplants in 19 patients. Two patients survive. One has lived ' eight months, the other two months, j "Even a few months survival justifies the effort," Cooley said.

REPORTS PSYCH/ATR/ST Activity Among Elderly To Show Big Increase in Future By FRANK CAREY i AP Science Writer j NEW YORK (AP) - A Duke! University psychiatrist says it is j quite possible that sexual activi- j ty among elderly persons will : show a definite increase in the j future. j The ability for sexual activity i among the elderly is already ap-: i preciable at ages even beyond i 75, Dr. Ewald W. Busse said to- [ ! day in a report to a symposium, i i "Physical Fitness and Aging," i at the annual convention of the i American Medical Association. | i "Assuming that the health of | j the elderly will continue to im; prove, and assuming that neu-' i rotic sexual conflicts will be less ' j prevalent, it is quite possible I j that sexual activity among the j elderly in the years ahead will | show a definite increase," j Busse said. " ; He led up to his forecast by saying the situation at present is this: • • 1. In general, sexual activity' between marital partners tends to be maintained until after the age of 75. I 2. Approximately 60 per cent • 11 of married couples between the j 11 ages of 60 and 74 years of age i ' | remain sexually active. j Duke's Song Inspired by Apollo Shot NEW YORK (AP) - Musician Duke Ellington says he is going to start and end his singing career with a self-composed song inspired bv the forthcoming flight of Apollo 11. It's entitled "Moon Maiden." Recorded by the 70-year-old bandleader here Monday, the song will be broadcast for the first time at 10 p.m. Sunday, when .astronauts Edwin Aldrm and Neil Armstrong are expected. to be resting on the lunar surface. "JtYa one-shot thing," Ellington saj<j. "This is the end of my singing career." All Ellington observation on the Apollo 111 moonshot itself; "1 hope they will come back and say it's a very nice place to spend the 3. After age 75, sexual activity declines, so as to include only 30 per cent of married couples that age. But, he said, the continuation of sexual activity is dependent upon several interacting factors, adding: "Among the married, the physical and mental health of the partner is important—as are the patterns of sexual interest and activity that have been established in early adulthood. At the same session. Dr. Lawrence E. Lamb of Baylor College of Medicine Houston, Tex. —one of the world's pioneering centers in heart transplant research—criticized "the theatrics of artificial hearts and transplants." "While a few surgeons make headlines with human experimentation," he said, "the real battle against disease, death and debility is being waged in the unglamorous area of preventing heart disease . . . "if the money spent on the artificial heart was spent on really launching a preventive program, thousands of lives could be saved." Dr. Lamb named no names in saying that "artificial hearts an'd heart transplants ... have produced an abundance of headlines and little else other than notoriety for a few surgeons." But he is on the staff of the same medical school as Dr. { Denton A. Cooley, who holds the j world's record for the number I of heart transplant operations. ] Cooley was also on the AMA j convention program. He dis- ! closed in an interview Monday i that he and an associate have 1 developed a new and apparently improved artificial heart device, and that it should be ready for use within six weeks. About 22.500 doctors are attending the five-day convention. , The AMA says it represents • about 66 per cent of Ihe nation's 325,000 doctors.

Judge 7e//s Clay to Appear July 24 for Resenfenc/ng HOUSTON, Tex. (AP) - A federal judge rejected Cassius Clay's appeal to set aside his draft evasion conviction and ordered him to appear July 24 for resentenciog. Judge Joe Ingraham refused to set aside the 1967 jury verdict after the defense claimed wire tapped information used in the trial was illegally obtained and had tainted the conviction. In Atlanta, defense attorney Charles Morgan Sr,, said he would, not comment until he's read the ruling. "The electronic eavesdropping questions are appealable to the Fifth Circuit (Court of Appeals in New Orleans) and from there to the Supreme Court," he said- Four wiretap conversations were submitted into evidence in a June hearing. A fifth was not allowed because Ingraham said it could endanger the national security if revealed SEN-DINT* o EXPRESS Call EXPRESS § for Fr*t •in *t« rw The Supreme Court had ordered the hearing to determine if Clay's conviction was influenced by the information from the electronic surveillance.

Jngraham also rejected Clay's request for a full scale hearing into practices by the FBI, who monitored his conversations. Ingraham noted that the conversation between Clay and Or.
