A iAIN at the close of 1946— when America's need for new motor cars and trucks is most urgent — the Chevrolet Motor Division of General Motors leads all other manufacturers in automotive production. This means that Chevrolet is first in passenger car product/on — first in truck production — first in com' bin.eel. passenger car and truck production . . . despite the fact that all Chevrolet plants were closed completely during the first three months of 1946! Naturally, Chevrolet hopes to be able to build more and more of these fine products which America is buying so eagerly—the only motor car giving SlG-CAR QUALITY AT LOWEST COST—the only truck giving BIG-TRUCK QUALITY AT LOWEST COST—the complete Chevrolet line which stands out as the lowest-priced line in its field!

TW.A pilot's ' Btrike and growing: pains have combined to give tho major line* a,' rough time. ; To cap it all. came the bad weather which Vgocked in' 1 all eaatern neids during both the Christmas and New Year holidays. Thousand* had to turn to the railroads at the last minute, which induced many not to rely on plane reser* rations in the future for any "must" trip, Economic observers hold that the airlines, despite their war-time growth, are still in the fledgling stage ns far as realizing full potentialities are concerned. . < They rfote that most major, firms, in expanding, have spread themselves pretty thin. Moreover, they note, the airlines have npt been able to complete their programs, including modernization of terminals, as fast as they wished and the public has grown tired of the inconveniences at 'many major airports. The result has been a decline in revenues which, in turn, forces some lines to curtail operations in orqer to weather tho emergency. However, there is considerable confidence that, by a thorough overhauling, including the elimination of some "window dressing" personnel and the adoption of strict business methods, the airlines will come through, because of th* inherent steady demand for fast transportation. • • •• • •. • THE MOVEMENT KNOWN »s tne Republican Open Forum has been making itself heard around Washington lately. Known more commonly as the ROF, It Is actually an association of local groups, spread around the country, which gathers the opinions of Republicans, as expressed at meetings, and makes reports on "grass roots" thinking for party leaders in and out of Congress. The Republican National committee acknowledged the "excellent work" of the ROF. but refused support..;Qbsery.?.r;SjQnd little difficulty In understanding this lack of direct assistance, since the organization was formed under the protective wing of Harold Stassen, an avowed presidential candidate, who remains chairman of the ROF advisory board. However. Henry T. McKr.ight, ROF executive director and • Stassen adherent, maintains the organization will not develop into a group of Stassen-for-President clubs, despite the liberal contributions to ROF by the "Minnesota Fund" which also contributes to the Stassen campaign. Washington politlcos agree with McKnight that the forum would lose some party value if they became too Stassen-mindcd, but they have grave doubts that the present impartiality will last. * • » * • WHILE POLITICIANS ROAR in strictly political speeches in demands for "open diplomacy" they arc generally reluctant to having the same principle apply to party politics. Hence a number were somewhat shocked when Senator Wilson of Iowa, swept in In the Republican landslide, proposed that tho recent Republican conference of senators prior to taking over Senate control be open to the public. He didn't push the suggestion but he thoroughly believes in such. conduct of political matters. Semi-official as well as official proceedings, he is convinced, should be thrown open. He has proved the sincerity or hia convictions, too. While governor or Iowa he Insisted that the door of his private omcc bo kept open at all times. Waiting visitors could always see who sat across the desk from Wilson. Some politicians who liked to decide things in secret huddles were annoyed. In lowa. he also threw open sessions of his executive council, which transacts most of the state's executive business. Official! participating were at first embarrassed, but Wilson Insists the plan worked. "There were no misunderstandings about what' we were doing," he says, "and we had nothing to hide." .", Normiin,' Okla. —^(UP)—Today's Oklahoma generation 6,t. : ;rp' d '..m'en; will not. forget ' the' '^trirtitlona'l- danced and music df-'ith«ir .ancestors, '.if" the Unlv'orsity'.br''Okla- homa's 'radio atatloh—>VNAD—has anything to say about;:-'jt..; : . . < .• . • Every Tuesday ..-that'..broadcasting'.outlet produces .and 'presents strictly for an all-Indian' audlenco through the state a special'- pro- grnm called "Indians for Indians Hour," " • ',"-•'. : .-'"' On thc program appear repro- rnntatives' of tho various trlbes|"1a Oklnhoma.
