We would like to p«t you behind the wheel of this car . . . because we've found from actual comparative demonstrations that 3 out of ' 4 open-minded men who drive a Chrysler for the first time prefer it to anything else. There are many reasons. In the first place, the 1956 Chrysler is the only car in its price class that has been completely restyled this year. It has that "hair-trigger" look for which designers have been striving many years. We call it "PowcrStyle." But there's more to the Chrysler story than styling. There's power . . . more power to pass safely when necessary . . . more power to drive without ellort . . . more power to stop. There is not a car on the road today as completely power-operated as the "Power- Style" Chrysler. Its Pov.erFlite transmission is controlled by pushbuttons , . . the Spitfire V-8* ultimate in automatic, foolproof control.. But do Chrysler's competitors have this mechanical trouble-free system? Not yet! Chrysler's PowerPilot Steering works ///// time . . . does 80% of the work, not just in parking, but in long distance driving, in traffic and in rough going. Competitive power steering cuts in and out . . . does only a fraction of this job. And what, about engines? Chrysler was first to adopt the principles of the airplane-type V-8 engine. Today's engine is a new and bigger version of this engine... 250 hp in the Windsor 280 hp in the New Yorker FircPower V-8 and now 340 hp in the blazing new Chrysler 300-B. Then there is the all-important matter of brakes. Chryslers newly'designed PowerSmoolh Brakes not only bring you safer, surer,\ straight-line stops — they outlast the others 2 to 1. So if you have been driving another make of car in Chrysler's price elas,s . . . ask yourself this question: Don't I want to know what my money can buy before 1 spend it? Then make a tlrive-them-both comparison. We'll leave everything else to your judgment. *\\ iili tin' atliliiuw of ilic Clii-yslcr Puwer '1'tain cil slight extra COSt. "PowerStyle" CHRYSLER the year-ahead car!

The Following Editorial Appeared tn the Algotia Upper Des Moines on Dee. 29, 1955: 8,000 PERCENT PROFIT A private group is making an 8,000 percent profit from a public land giveaway as thfc result of a deal made under the present adminis'trationj. a Senate committee has discovered. The action involves disposal of public forest lands and timber. A Portland, Oregon, group filed "gold and silver" mining claims in a national forest in Oregon. Such claims are supposed to be granted only on proof that metals or minerals are presfent in quantities "commercially mirteable." The purpose of this is to keep fake miners from getting forest lands when their real purpose is to strip off valuable timber.' Clarence A. Davis, present Undersecretary of the Interior, sent an engineer to take samples from the claim. The samples were then sent to a firm for analysis. This firm by coincidence happened to be acquainted with the group filing the claim. The analysis report said the samples showed high silver and gold content, and the claims were granted. The Oregon group paid $8,045 for these claims. The samples taken for the silver and gold test, the Senate committee learned, were dumped into a river after the inspection lest and cannot be re-examined. Since the granting of the claim, the Oregon group which bought the'land lor $8,045 for "mining purposes" has resold the land for $96,000 and its timber potential is now being worked and has an estimated value of $638,000. ' Senator W. Kerr Scott, South Carolina, chairman of the senate group, said "as .a result of interference in the Interior Dept., weasel-worded legal opinions and questionable sampling and as- .saying have been substituted for the expert judgment of dedicated government employees in the U. S. Forest Service who opposed this sale of public land." Aye, Senator, and what do we, the people, do now? The Following Story (In Pdri) Appeared Jan. 13, 1956, in The Des Moines Register Attributed to 'The Register and New York Times News Service . . . WASHINGTON, D. C. — A former government official Wednesday told a congressional committee why Oregon ore samples from Al Sarena Mines, Inc., were sent to an Alabama firm for appraisal rather than having them tested on the west coast. The Sarena company applied in 1949 for gold and silver mining rights in the Rogue River National forest near Medford, Ore. The claims were rejected after sample ores were assayed to yield only 87 cents a ton. Under McKay In late 1953, after Douglas McKay of Oregon had become secretary of the interior, bureau of mines officials in Spokane, Wash., were notified that Sarena agents would again take ore samples from the site. Malcolm E. Volin, then regional chief for the bureau of mines in Spokane, testified that normally mining claims were filed with the bureau of land management, not the bureau of mines. Volin said he received instructions, originating with Clarence A. Davis, undersecretary of the interior, for overseeing the Sarena sampling. The instructions, he said, specified that the samples should be assayed by a firm "mutually acceptable" to himself and to Sarena. ' Home Town Firm He said he proposed sending them to either of two reputable west coast assaying firms. Al Sarena, he said, objected to both companies and proposed the A. W. Williams Co. in Mobile. (Sarena's home office is in Mobile.) Volin agreed, after the bureau of mines southern regional office informed him Williams had the approval of the state geologist in Alabama as a reputable firm. The committee-staff produced a letter from the general services administration stating that the Williams company's work for it had in the past been "incorrect" and "inadequate." $2 a Ton The Williams' assay report sho,wed that the Oregon site might be expected to yield an average of more than $2 per ton in gold and silver. On the basis of this report, Al Sarena was awarded its claims. Since then, it has been cutting douglas fir and sugar pine timber at the claim site, but doing no mining, according to testimony. Senator Richard Neuberger (Dem., Ore.) said the claim patents gave Sarena title to timber worth at least $250,000 at present prices. Differs on Value Representative Charles Jonas (Rep., N.C.) said that in 1949 the forest service estimated the value of the timber at $77,000. Robert Redwine, chief counsel for the committee, said Sarena has cut 2 million board feet of lumber on the tract. Its value was estimated at $110,000. . Richard N. Appling. Jr., bureau of mines agent who watched the ore sample taking, testified that he took » set of matching samples against the possibility that those mailed to Mobile might be lost in transit. When he received the Williams report, he said he dumped his set in the Rogue river as no longer needed.
