Nuclear-Powered Car Impossible: Engineer If you are waiting for an economy automobile with nuclear po er, one that will never have to be fed gasoline, don't hold your breath because there won't he any.

At Marquette Park Saturday for the closing sessions of the Midwest Conference on Outer Space, Coch/ Boy, 11, Saves Mother as Her Clothing Burns Roderick Hart, 11, is being credited by Hartford officials with saving his mother's life in a fire Saturday evening. The boy's mother, Mrs. Anna Lee Hart, poured gasoline on a fire and was caught in the ensuing explosion, which ignited her clothing. Her son rushed into a garage building, seized a rug and wrapped his mother in it, thus smothering the blaze. Mrs. Hart Is hospitalized with third degree burns over approximately 30 per cent of her body. Child Burned by Gasoline Flash Steven LaMarsh, 4, got the equivalent of an instant sunburn Sunday at 5 p.m. when he was burned by flashing gas from a can which he had tossed on a fire at a neighbor's house.

This, Cochran said, is because the nuclear reactor, needed to supply the power, is as wide as an automobile and then must be sur rounded with the equivalent of four feet of concrte. "This might be a 10-inch layer of lead and a foot or two of water — well, anyway, it's too bulky for an automobile," he said. Cochran said there may be a nuclear-powered locomotive some day, but General Electric has given up on this "because the nuclear reactor is as wide as the locomo- motive." Cochran is connected with General Electric Co. at Cincinnati, where jet engines are built for McDonnell Aircraft Corp. of St. Louis.
