They are son-in-law and daughter of Mrs Loretta Giffin and are stationed at Anchorage, Alaska. With their small daughter Martha they recently drove to the artic- regions, getting there before winter set in. They spent the nights in sleeping bags and all that , could be seen of little Martha was her nose sticking out. What makes a sleeping bag warm, Mrs Giffin asked. 1 The sbfty-four dollar question!

'. • • . - rs • " PONT ************ '« H * 7 ;-. **** * * * * * * *•*.*.** * • ^ ' \ • W DISPLAY IN OUR SHOW ROOM Friday and Saturday, Oct. 29 and 30 The 1 1955 Pontiac incorporates .more engineering improvements than any new model since ihe car was first introduced in 1926 according to G. A. Delaney, Chief Engineer of Pontiac Motor Division. With a new overhead valve V-8 engine, new panoramic body and nevf frame and suspension, there are a total of 109 new features in the 1955 Pontiac. Poniiac's 1955 model cars will feature a new Sirato-Sreak V-8 engine. The powerful 180 horsepower engine has overhead valves, a 8.1 compression ratio and 287.2 cubic inches, displacement. The fleet new bodies have a low. streamlined silhouette. The front- end, accentuated by the jnassive dual impact bars and grille bar has the modern appearance of a jet plane air scoop. The headlamps display a bold new treatment with futuristic air crescents above them. Twin silver streaks, a popular feature of Pontiac's "dream cars," sweep back from the radiator grille of the 1955 Pontiac's, terminating at the cowl- wide passenger compartment air intake. Pontiac colors for 1955 show the influence of the public's taste for lighter and brighter tones. "Vogue" two-toning which brings the color of the top of the car down to the fiddle of the car body, adds greatly to the streamlined appearance of the new Pontiacs. Body interiors, luxuriously color-keyed to the new %xterior paints, reach new heights of comfort, roominess and safety. The graceful instrument panel mounts aircraft-type instruments at 90 degrees to the driver's vision with control knobs recessed .for added safety. The 1955 Pontiacs will be available in two new series, the Star Chief Series, having a 124 inch wheelbase and the Chieftain Series with a wheelbase of 122 inches. Dimensionally, sedan and coupe models are 2!K. inches lower, in overall height) A two-door Elation wagon has been added to the line of Pontiac body styles this year. Station wagons are as much as 6 inches lower. All models have lower hood lines exposing both front fenders to the driver's vision. Hip and shoulder room have been substantially increased by redesigning the car interior. The new bodies with panoramic windshield and increased glass as side and back have 26% more "see through" area. A new heavier frame provides additional safety and improved riding qualities for the 1955 Pontiac owner. In addition to the new frame which results in reduced vibration, the 1955 Pontiac has improved front suspension, new steering mechanism, parallel rear springs and new shock absorbers. Tubeless tires have been adopted as standard equipment. Pontiac will offer GM Hydra-Malic and Synchromesh transmissions again this year. Several changes have been made in the 1955 Hydra- Malic to give it even smoother shifting. In the accessory line, Pontiac again offers power steering and power brakes, adding to the safety and ease of driving. A new defroster and underseat heater add comfort and insure vapor free windshields in the 1955 Pontiacs. Also, most attractive to the new car customer is Poniiac's price range, which remains just above the lowest even though the 1955 Pontiacs have the craftsmanship and fine features of the most expensive cars. The mating of beauty and function of design in the 1955 Pontiac, ihe powerful new engine and the numerous mechanical improvements in all parts of ihe car, have led many experts to tag this "General Motors Masterpiece" as the "car of the year."
