20 Golssburq Reflister-Moil, Golesburg, II Lincoln Increases Length By Three Inches for 1964 Lincoln plans no major changes from the 1963 models for its new Continental, but the car will be longer. The 1964 Lincoln Continental will have a three-inch increase in car length, wheelbase and rear door width, all designed for increased passenger comfort, says Ben D. Mills, Ford Motor Co. vice president and general manager of Lincoln-Mercury division. The roof will be 5.4 inches wider in the coming year, providing greater headroom in front and back. The rear seat will also have two inches more legroom, 2.5 inches in kneeroom and another half inch in hip room. Hip room is also increased in front by 1.2 inches. The Continental will have a new grille and exterior ornamentation, plus extensive new body sheet metal for durability. Reinforcements are new on the floor, sides and underbody. Luggage capacity has been increased 15 per cent, according to Mills, and a new deep-well floor pan will provide an additional two cubic feet. On the instrument panel, the air conditioner outlets are integral parts. The ignition switch is relocated to the right of the steering column, and gauges will be used for fuel, oil pressure, water temperature and battery charge. Mills says low-silhouette tires have been developed specially for the new Continental, which per- Thursdoy, Sept. 19, 1963 W'ATAGA CONGREGATIONAL CHURCH — ANNUAL FRIED CHICKEN DINNER THURSDAY, SEPT. 26 Serving at 5:30 Adulti, S1.35 Children, 75c mit using 15-inch wheels. The tires should last longer and contribute to longer brake life. The four-door convertible, only one made in this country, has a new low-contour roof design. The fabric, of five-ply material, is coated with clear vinyl. Although the car will have heavier rear axle gears, the Continental will again be powered by its 430-cubic-inch engine and the dual-range automatic transmission. New features included as standard equipment on the new models include automatic parking brake release, trip odometer, fuel warning light, map light and reading lights on the sedan. The two-year or 24,000-mile warranty will be continued.

Written for Newspaper Enterprise Association All of our articles thus far have been developing a general study approach—habits of study that will work with almost any subject you encounter. Now it's time to round off your arsenal of study techniques—to supply the variations that apply to specific subjects. We'll start with history. Nineteen chapters ago, we saw that a history book is not the same as an obituary column. It's not just a long list of dates and dead people — even though most of the people in your book are dead. Let's take an example fawn history. You've probably studied the Renaissance — or else you'll be studying it soon. Have you ever asked yourself why there was a Renaissance — why the whole of Europe suddenly awakened from centuries of comparative lethargy? Why there was such a tremendous flowering of science, art, culture, philosophy? What prompted men to risk their lives upon unknown oceans? More than this, have you tried to figure out how the Renaissance has shaped the world you're living in — how your country, ideals and beliefs and even the modern technology which is such a part of your life were largely determined by the events of centuries ago? In other words, have you seen how history moves, how it flows in big, sweeping waves? Let's stay with the Renaissance and take a look at a historical movement or pattern of development. We can go back to the 12th and 13th centuries and the Crusades. The serfs that took part in the Crusades were "getting off the farm" and thus a major blow was dealt to feudalism — a system by which the king, by "divine right," owned the land and virtually owned the peasants. The philosophy and science of the ancient Greeks that had been preserved in the East found its way to Europe via the returning Crusaders. So did valuable spices, jewels, and cloths, and the seeds of trade and mercantilism were sown. Trade meant exploration, exploration meant new lands, new lands meant more merchants — and a strong middle class was on the rise. Exploration required science; science meant freer, bi'oader thinking, Hence, the Protestant Reformation and the Catholic Counter Reformation. The new scientific approach was applied to politics and social problems — liberalism and de­ mocracy were not far behind. The kingdoms of Europe rose and fell with the fortunes of the New World. The Americans revolted, the French revolted. Nineteenth century Europe seethed with revolt and new industry. In the turmoil of the 19th century, both communism and democracy found Signs Bonus Pact NEW YORK (UPI) — Fred Rescigno, 20, son of former Pittsburgh Pirates pitcher Xavier Rescigno, signed a "modest" bonus contract Wednesday with the New York Mets.
