ROOSEVELT RD. FOREST PARK, ILL. 771-5600 New Mobile Lab Checks Pollution A new "swing-wing" mobile laboratory, to be housed in a van and completed early next year, will mark another major 3tep forward in helping to remove the automobile as a significant factor in air pollution, according to General Motors Corp. The center section of the 40-foot long van will swing out so that vehicles can be driven into the test chamber as easily as into a single-car garage. T. F. Nagey, CM director of product assurance, said that a three-man crew operatini: the mobile laboratory will be able to analyze vehicles and produce emission test results within an hour after arriving at a new location. 'Field surveillance of late- model GM cars and light trucks in the hands of owners will be checked for emission control and compliance testing of newly-produced vehicles at assembly plants will be made. Correlation of test results between GM's various stationary emission test laboratories and at state and Federal facilities will be possible -with the new mobile laboratory, according to Mr. Nagey. The lab's equipment will simultaneously detect, calculate and record mass levels of unburned hydrocarbons, carbon monoxide, oxides of nitrogen and carbon dioxide in the test car's exhaust. READ the REVIEW FOREST PARK REVIEW, WEDNESDAY, MARCH 3, 1971, PAGE 19 Skip Lipmcrn and Group Entertain Royal Scots How would you like to have a breakfast at 8 a.m. consisting of about 40 dishes including herring, sardines,' goat cheese, swlss cheese, salami, ham, reindeer tongue, beef slices, American cereals, eggs, crackers, breads, jams, cucumbers, plus much more, smorgasbord style? That's the kind of meal that was served to "Skip" Upman, 5Z9 DesPlaines Ave., Forest Park and 432 other skiers from the Chicago metropolitan area. The occasion was the Jan. 23-31 skiing trip in Voss, Norway, where the group was royally treated by Mayor Lars Neshelm Houda and the townspeople. Skip, who is president of the Chicago Metropolitan Ski Council, was named an honorary member of the "Voss Idrottslag" Sport Club. He Is the first American to be so honored. , "They were so impressed when we came over in such large num-- bers and they liked our group extremely well and that's why they wanted to extend this honorary gesture," Skip said. The Voss townspeople confessed they had expected the Americans to be more "rowdy". They were surprised to find them so neatly dressed and polite and considerate. "With skiers, perhaps more than any other group, we're not worried about social behavior," Skip explained. "We're out to have fun, to enjoy life. Maybe our values are different. When you're out there skiing and you see the beauty of nature all around you - well, it's like being in church." The Chicago Metropolitan Ski Council was invited by the Royal Scots to a party at their post in. Voss, a former German concentration camp. On the post there were pictures of the different divisions, showing the British soldiers. If you lifted the picture up, you would see the Germans, with their faces to the wall. Another, party was thrown for the group by the Mayor and his staff at the Park Leland Hotel. Then life Americans gave a party for the Mayor's group and also the British Army. "We had brought along three cases of bourbon and we called it a party - Chicago style. It lasted from 7:30 p.m. to 5 a.m." Skip said. The Americans also taught their party guests how to play musical chairs - without the chairs. The townspeople were warmhearted and friendly and invited the Americans into their homes. Their frame houses are painted in gay yellows, blues, ver- mllllons, pinks. In all the windows are displayed lovely art- ' work such as vases, carved objects and pewterware. The children walk two to three miles, to school with knapsacks on their backs. There are no school busses. Families also enjoy walking to visit neighbors. Future 1971-72 plans for the Chicago Metropolitan Ski Council (CMSC) Include trips to Canada, Spain, Japan, Poland, Czech-: oslovakla and of course a return trip to Norway. "They all want us to come back to Voss, but maybe not so many next time. They don't want commercialism to creep into their lovely town," said Skip. "We want to go back because the people are great and the skiing is marvelous." The SH" Council is a 13 year old non-proilt corporation composed of 60 ski clubs representing over 20,000 members. "CMSC is where it all hangs out - tun and fellowship, living life to the fullest, skiing hard whenever you can, contributing time and effort to promote skiing and its great future. Above all, a love for skiing is not easily put into words. That's what .it's all about - skiing is beautiful," Skip says. . Those interested in further information about CMSC may call Skip at 366-1433. Cold is Common New York—(UK)—The u>m- nuin cold is every bit as common perMtn WILII nveiiige iietmu tan normally expect to sutler three ur four colds u year. The Council, sponsored by the manufacturers of medicines as n public service, says the cold is" MI common, in fad, that it accounts for more than one-third ol all days lost from work and two-thirds of all school absences iiltrihulcd to sickness. Despite years of extensive research by medical .scientists, no real cure has yet been found for' the common cold, a disorder of the upper respiratory tract. The most effective way to treat it is with common sense, according to Ihe Council. These are the common sense suggestions of the Council: —Treat u cold al Its ousel lo prevent it from becoming more serious or turning into somethjjiK eke. (id plenty of rest and sleep, drink fluids and lake medication for the relief of snilllcs, sore throut or other minor symptoms. —Colds are more contagious In their curly stages. Try to avoid contact with people developing cold symplums. If you have a cold, respect others by covering coughs and sneezes and avoiding the use of a drinking glass, towel or other Items you might share in common with others. ' —When you take medication for, your cold remember (o use your medicines properly. The label on the .medicine bottle or container will (ell you how much medication to lake and how often to take It. Follow these instructions exactly to avoid any chance of accident. ! Keep Medicines : Out of Sight • \ —Children sulTcr more colds I than adults. When treating children, never leave medicines on a night tublc or dresser lop. A child with a cold is as likely as a healthy child to discover a bottle of medicine and consume Us con- tents.hi Ihe.belief (hat the medicine is candy. Keep all medicines out of the sight and reach of children and never tell them' that medicines are candy. —A cold lowers the body's normal defense mechanisms and can make a person vulnerable to other more serious ailments, If not treated properly. If your cold seems (o last a long time or your symptoms get progressively more serious, see your doctor. The common cold is a common illness in our society but it should never be taken for granted, warns the Council.
