Ward's Automotive Reports, stn tislical agency for the automotive industry, recently reported the industry was expected to 7-each a new car inventory of 900,000 units during- March. This usually is good news for manufacturers and buyers but bad news for the dealer. When manufacturers feel new cars are going to sell well, they try to build up dealer inventories Fa buyers will have a wide choice of the manufacturer's cars in front of him when he goes Li buy. I The manufacturer also wants ' to be sure his product is readily I available to the public so the I buyer will not switch to some j other line where he can get im i mediate delivery of the car lie wants. Must Sell Quickly For the buyer this means he not only can get the car he wants more quickly but he also usually can make a better deal with the! dealer. j Many auto dealers operate on what is called the "floor plan."' Under this system, finance companies loan the dealers the money to buy the cars from the manufacturers. The longer the cars remain on the showroom floors, j the more interest the finance companies collect fom the dealers. This means the dealer's actual 'profits are cut if the car is not PALACE OF SNOW—A research worker seems tiny in a huge trench dug by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers in the snow of the Arctic ice cap.

Signs of deterioration whirh inspectors have uncovered however have prompted officials to push forward at once with a. major inspection and overhaul of the dome. At least four of its 3S outer iron ribs are to be removed If tests show age and stress has taken its toll, all 36 riba will be replaced. One worrisome problem is that the dome swings with the sun.

To Extend East Front Chevy panel steps lively in Florida...runs day and night, delivers 19.3 miles per gallon! The dome work ia only indirectly related to another big project at the Capitol, extension of the cast front. Ride through Capitol plaza these days and you think Harry S. Truman was right when he said the dome one day would be toppling over. Aside from any internal defects it may have, the dome, according to Truman, was off balance. Congress finally agreed and is spending $10,100,000 to tear down the east front and relocate it, in more permanent form, 324 fei further out. The old front is down now. with the result that the skirt of the dome seems to be hanging over th« plaza in space. However, engineer* «ay there if no safety problem here- !
