Trans-Texas Cites Alleged Infringement Trans-Texas Airways has fifed a complaint with the Civil Aeronautics Board against Trans Air Lines for alleged infringement on their name. R. E. McKaughan, president of TTA, said the confusion over the names "harshly affects the public." and that the reputation of TTA is being damaged. The complaint, filed Thursday, is in addition to a law suit filed by TTA in New Orleans, August 7, against the same carrier, McKaughan said. The complaint cited inconveniences to the public which result from the name similarity and that SWEDfN NfFDS MORE PASTORS STOCKHOLM, Sweden (AP) — The Lutheran C h u r c h of Sweden fs short of pastors.

There were a few thundershow- crs and temperatures sagged to the lower 60s behind the front, where it was partly cloudy. It was generally clear elsewhere in Texas except for a few clouds around San Antonio and along the coast.

Shell suggests 10 ways to reduce your chances of getting stranded when you're miles from help 1. Make your own roadside emergency kit and always carry it in your trunk. It could save you a lot of trouble someday. Your kit should include; a spare fan belt, a strong tow rope, a gallon can of water, a flashlight with extra batteries, pliers, screwdriver, and several wrenches. 2. Check both your spare tire and jack. A flat tire is usually more annoying than serious. But it can leave you stranded if your spare is flat or your jack doesn't work. So always have the air pressure in your spare checked at the same time as the rest of your tires. And make sure your jack is in good working order. 3. Find out where your car fuses are located. Your car has fuses that do the same job as the ones in your home. And they're just as easy to replace if you know where to find them. So have your Shell dealer show you where each fuse is. And carry extra fuses in your glove compartment. 4. Hide a spare ignition key in your car, If you've ever lost your keys in the back country, you know how important this is. Be sure that everyone who drives your car knows where the extra key is hidden. 5. Check for the three troubles that cause nearly half of all breakdowns. The American Automobile Association reports that tires, weak batteries, and faulty electrical systems account for 45 percent of all car breakdowns. So have your Shell dealer check all three frequently. 6. Don't plow through water. Here's a good rule to follow. // there's the slightest chance thai the water is deep enough to reach your tailpipe, turn your car around and look for an alternate route. This may take you a few miles out of your way, but it's better than stalling in water. EXTREMELY IMPORTANT: Test your brakes after driving through water. Even a few inches of water can cause temporary brake failure. If this happens, drive with extreme caution until the brake linings dry. 7. Don't let your gas tank get below half full in lonely country. Americans ran out of gas more than 2 million times last year. It you know you'll be driving in a remote area, fill up before you get to it. And check your gas gauge regularly in isolated country. It can be a long way between service stations. 8. Try these tips if a stuck wheel nut keeps you from changing a tire. a) Make sure you're turning the lug wrench the right way. Some cars have right-hand threads. Others have left- hand threads. And they're not always clearly marked. b) Give a stuck nut a few sharp raps with a hammer or rock. (13e careful not to hit any exposed lug threads). Then try the wrench again. If the nut still ref uses to budge, try turning the wrench with a sudden snapping motion. 9. Try "rocking out" when you're stuck III mud or sand. Put the car in reverse and apply power gently. As soon as the wheels start to spin, reduce power and shift into forward gear. Ease forward until the wheels spin again. With each back and forth rock, your car should go a little further—until you're out of trouble. 10. If "rocking out" doesn't work, build a pathway of sticks. Place sticks or branches in front of and under the rear wheels. Start the car forward slowly, and gradually increase speed. By the time you reach the end of your path, you should have enough momentum to carry you forward. Super Shell's 9 ingredients for top performance TCP*—for power, mileage, longer plug life.
