Chevrolet Offers Chevelle As New Series in 1964 Chevrolet, still pushing to set a new sales mark in 1963. will offer its 1964 line of cars Thursday. A new series will be offered by the Chevrolet designers — the Chevelle. This car in size falls between the standard Chevrolet and the Chevy II. To give this car a wide appearance, the tail and backup lights have been placed at the extreme ends of the rear back panel and a textured molding extends the width of the car. Curved side windows are designed to give a low look. The chassis, featuring a perimeter frame, is new on the Chevelle and it is built on a 115-inch wheelbase.

He must also be considerably annoyed by the failure of his "virgin lands" project for plowing up the arid region of Kazakstan and planting it to wheat. The sometimes unpredictable boss of the Kremlin has recently embraced Tito of Yugoslavia, who has been sufficiently unorthodox as a Marxist to permit his peasants to indulge in free market agriculture. But in embracing Tito as a man, Khrushchev has not yet embraced Tito's ideas. This could be coming, however. MAYBE, NEXT YEAR, Khrushchev will prefer the humiliation of restoring free competition to Russian agriculture to the humiliation of buying up the capitalist wheat surplus of Canada. The latter tactic constitutes an admission that the free farmer can produce more than the col­ lectivized farmer, anyway. So why should Khrushchev boggle over freeing his peasants to do for him in 1964 what free Alberta and Saskatchewan wheat ranchers have done for him — at a price in dollars — in 1963?

Children of Young Moms Live Longer By HAL BOYLE NEW YORK (AP> - Thinqs a columnist might never know if he didn't have to open his mail How long you will live may depend partly on how old your mother was when you were born. Children of young mothers have fewer birth defects and a longer life span than the offspring of older women. The ago of the father doesn't seem to make much difference. j Prosperity note: Americans; write about 12 billion checks a year. One reason there arc more widows than widowers: Accidents take the lives of twice as many men as women. The stress diseases of civilization also arc far more fatal in weakling man than in the more durable sex. Household helps: If your plastic table tennis ball gets a dent in it. simply dunk It in boiling water. If the ball has no holes, it will quickly reassume its proper shape. The high cost of government: Forty years ago Americans paid only $4 billion a year—$37 a person—for state and local taxes. Today slate and local taxes have soared to $4-1 billion, or about $211 for every man. woman and child. Our quotable notables: "When archaeologists discover the missing arms of Venus He Milo they will find that she was wearing hoxing gloves." — John Barrymore. Social milestone: For the first time in history, fewer than 10 out. of 100 Americans are now farm dwellers. Edii'ilinn: Several smaller nations have outstripped the United States in the matter of literacy. Iceland, for example, has no illiteracy among its normal adults, all can read or write. Hairy history: In 11-17 the Irish pushed a law that no man could wear a beard above his lips unless he wanted to pass as art Englishman. The English themselves started the custom of daily shaving around 1660. In Russia, beardless Peter the Great made noblemen pay a special tax if they wore whiskers. Arboreal lore: The Olive tree is the longest-lived of fruit-bearing trees. Some in the Garden of Gethsemnne in the Holy Land are estimated to be over 2,000 years old. It was Sherwood Anderson who observed, "The true history of life is but a history of moments. It is only at. rare moments that we live."

HOUR C0RNMASTER Some important information for every man who will need a new truck within the next 12 months New Chevrolets are a lot more truck than your money bought the last time. Here are some of the things that have been done to give you more value for practically the same investment Double-wall construction. This feature of Chevrolet cabs and the Fleetside pickup body has two advantages. Insulation and sound-deadening material is sandwiched between the two layers of steel in the cab to give you more comfort; in the body, the inner wall acts as a buffer against load damage, preserving the outer appearance of the truck; Suspension to fit the truck. You get a much better ride in every size Chevrolet truck today than you used to. Conventional half- and three-quarter-ton models have independent front suspension with variable pitch coils in the rear. Variable pitch coils do not "bottom out" as readily. Mediums and heavies have I-beam suspension with variable-rate leaf springs. This variable-rate leaf-type suspension automatically stiffens as the load increases— and vice versa. It means a smoother, flatter ride regardless of load, a better handling truck. The right engine. Chevrolet has been building truck engines since 1918 but never has it been in better position to give you the type and size you need for maximum efficiency. Today there are many different capacities of gasoline and diesel Chevrolet truck engines—fours, sixes, V8's. Stronger frames. Every conventional 1964 Chevrolet truck has a ladder-type frame. Formerly used on heavier trucks only, this type is more resilient, better able to give with the load and terrain, to stand up under stress. Its simple design also makes it easier to mount special bodies on the truck. Its riveted side rails are stronger. Greater model selection. This time you're going to find it a simple matter to pick the exact type of Chevrolet truck for the kind of work you do. In delivery trucks, for instance, in addition to regular panels and pickups, we have eleven different sizes of ready-made walk-in vans, some with full- width rear doors. There are also the Corvair 95 vans with the air-cooled engine in the rear. And the Corvair 95 Rampside with its exclusive side-loading feature. These trucks have more power this year. In the medium- and heavy-duty area there are stakes, tilt cabs, low-cab-forward models and cab-and-chassis units to suit almost any requirement—including school bus bodies of up to 66-passenger capacity. Dump truck operators now can order a Chevrolet tandem with either gasoline or diesel power. Quality and value. Chevrolets today are a lot more truck than your money bought the last time, and yet the price tag is just about the same as 5 or 6 years ago.
