KK(;,\K DETROIT -UP- ...- auiomo- bile industry tits winter has found itself- in the peculiar position of having a car shortage nnd too m".ny cars at the same time. It's true, even though it doesn't stv'in" to make: .sense on Ihs surface. The industry, which has a record winter-time inventory of unsold new cars on hand, has found itself handicapped by not having enough four-door hardtops in Ihe hands of dealers. It has been a case of having too many of the wrong kind and not enough of the right kind. The four-door hardtop, first introduced last spring by Buick and Oldsmobile. has proved the big selling hit of the 1936 line of cars. But dealers in most lines have had trouble keeping supplied with enough of them. The problem ' points up Ihe'job the automobile factories have in deciding what kind of cars to build as well as how many to build. In all, the car buyer has some 270 different models' to choose from in buying a car, what with the various two-doors, four-doors, hardtop?, convertibles, sports cars, and station wagons that are offered by all the different car makers. Scheduling production to produce Die right amount of cars and also (he rijrht kind of cars is » king-sized job. Many of the c:>r makers early in the model run this year didn't turn out enough of the popular four-door hardtops. In fairness to the men who do the scheduling it wasn't a case of not anticipating the market as much as it was the case of solving the production nroblems for the tour-door hardtops.

MVf.KK WASHINGTON —UP— The government has awarded a $591.f>00 contract for ce.seaivh on nntional defense against radioactive fallout from enemy H-bombs. The H-bomb radiation menace was brought home jo the world two years . apo. A II. S. test explosion at Bikini March 3. 1954, contaminated an area of 7.000 square miles. It made existing civil defense plans obsolete. Civil Defense Administrator Val Peterson said the new research contract, awarded to the University of California, is the largest ever made by his agency. It "aims at laying the basic framework for a national defense against radioactive fallout that recently told the House subcommittee that H-bomb fallout could make n 10,000-square mile area uninhabitable ror years by peacetime radiation standards. 'Surgeon General Leonard A. Scheele told the same group a big atomic attack would create "abnormal epidemic hazards." Union Group To Kick Out Pair Of Proved Perjurers DENVER —UP— The Mine. Mill . could result u-om a nuclear attack and Smelter Workers Union plans on the United States." The contract is for on" year. But "more time and additional contracts." Peterson said, "probably will be required to complete the project." .Scientific critics of Peterson's agency testified before a House subcommittee last February that U. S. Civil Defense in the H-bomb era is a flop. Peterson agrees it is not adequate. "We are in urgent need." he said in announcing the research award, "of a logical and detailed nationwide system of defense against fallout, not only to increase the chances of survival under nu- national defense armament as a deterrent to attack." Atomic Energy Commissioner Willrn-i! F. Libby'has stressed the nerd for effective shelter against radioactive particles settling for hundreds of miles downwind from big bomb to remove from its payroll two officials who.have been convicted of falsely swearing they were not Communists. The independent, union's headquarters announced Tuesday that Maurice E. Travis, its former secretary and treasurer, will be retired as of July 1 with a disability pension of S300 a month. And the union said it would discharge Clinton E. Jencks. once president of a Mine-Mill local at Bayard. N.M., as of June 1, with severance pay. Travis, a burly man who lost an eye during strike violence at Bessemer, Ala., seven years ago. was charged two years ago at Denver with "filing false Taft-Hartley anti- Communist affidavits with the National Labor Relations Board. He resigned as Mine-Mill secretary and treasurer before his trial because the NLRB tried to deny the union its services in labor disputes on the ground that Travis DAILY CROSSWORD m ACROSS 1.

Travis was defended by Mine- Mill attorneys in federal court on the Taft-Hartley charges, and they now are appealing his conviction. Travis is free in bond. Jencks was convicted of the same crime in federal court at El- Paso in 3954. and also is free in Jond while attorneys appeal. A Mine-Mill spokesman said it vas decided to retire Travis and 'ire Jencks at an executive board meeting during the Mine-Mill convention at Salt Lake City last week. The big union, which has more than 70.000 member in the United States and Canada, was expelled by the CIO six years neo. o'a the ground that it was dominated by Reds. It has been reported recently making overtures 1o be reinstated. Tickers Keep Man Going BURUNGTOX. Vt. - ap.-- Malcolm S. Patton goes to the- source when he wants to learn what makes things tick. An avid collector of clocks. Patton has built up a collection of over 100 timepieces since hi- started his hobby 25 years ago. His collection includes clocks ranging from 90-year-old grandfather clocks to clocks that won't run and clocks that have run on nnd off for 100 years. A retired U. S. Internal Revenue Bureau employe, Patton spends much of his spare time tinkering with his collection, or at auctions socking worthwhile additions.

Pass Pass Pass Comparatively few players, expert or average, wouM follow South's example and double three hearts in this sequence, but there was a great deal to be said for that action. First 'and foremost, this was match-point duplicate, in which penalty doubles should be considerably closer than at rubber bridge.- At the latter game, the double of part-score contracts must be highly conservative,' but at match-points a double is in order whenever the player feels even fairly sure of defeating the contract and can see no greater profit from going on with his own bidding;. True, South had the values for a diamond rebid, but what could he expect from that action 7 North had already announced, via his pass over three hearts, that he had no free rebid, hence it was odds-on that he would pass to four diamonds. South could not bid five by himself, nor be reasonably sure of making any game. Thus,, the most he could expect from offensive bid. ding- was about 130 points. If the opponents could be defeated only one trick, this 130 po;nts would be superior, but was a one- trick defeat the reasonable expectation? South's singleton spade was a far better defensive feature than it would be if he were to play the hand. The doable worked out excel, (ently, North-South collecting six tricks, for a 300-point "penalty. Canada Gefs Devil Out Of Queen's Hair OTTAWA.
