OZARK THEATRE BLDG. prevent covernment contractors from going to the so-called 'sweat shops. My view Js that the Labor Deportment is ignoring this language of the law, "The department Is t a k i n g . t h e view that the prevailing wage for an Industry means the wage of thai Industry on. a nationwide basis. I think (he purpose of the law was to have the depiirtmcnt look at an Industry In a ccrtnin area -and apply 'the prevailing wage to that area." The Arkansans, together, with several other Southerners arid officials-of the Wcstinghouso Jilec- trlc Corporation, carried the matter to Secretary Tobin this week. The m a t t e r affects Wcstinu- hnuse which operates one light bulb plant at Little'Hock and Is proposing to build another at Hot Springs. Both Hays and Fulbright said t h c y . f e n r that if the Labor Department view. Is actually applied, industries may cease to expand in the South since one Southern advantage is a lower general wngc pattern, "1 think maybe one of Tobin's motives in to try to maintain the present industrial pattern of Now England and prevent the growth of competition," FulbriglH said.

WILK1E DctroIt-(/Pj-I ! robably the outstanding development of the last couple of years in the auto industry Is the steady- increase in horsepower output. 'Of course there have been suc,h things as automatic transmission refinements; 'power steering and power 'brakes along with body styling advances. But the advent of the IV and 190 horsepower engines seems to stand out as the major me:hanical advance, ' A few years ago t h e - ' i O O and j25 horsepower engine was regarded as virtually the ultimate r automobile power plants. It was s-iic 1 that no car designed for normal use required any more power that. '- . · ' JIuw, hov.'ever, Cadillac has in- Iroduccd its new models with 130 horsepower engines; m a n j other rar makers have added from 10 to 15 horsepower to'thei. engines Jnd considerable, experimental won. Is under way looking to further power expansion. 2«* H. F. Next V*«r It never has been done before but it isn't unlikely that some car maker will have a 200 horsepower engine in his conventional passen- gei cars next year. Of course this can be done without re-designing Ihe engine;-Chrysler den onstrated f'is when it stepped up one of its standard 180 horsepower engines to well over 300 horsepower .by some minor changes and a new carburetor arrangement. Why all that horsepower for average C3r use if, a good question. It is true that it seldom is used In anything short of a racing car, b j i in thf convention car it does contribute to smoothness of oper- 'ation and thd ability t'j gel. out of tight places in a hurry. Despite the increase in power output tr.t new- engines also give in proved fuef mileage, if this seems contradictory it should be remembered all the power rarely is used and that an increase in com- piession ratio has accompanied the higher power output.
