Of Hying Saucers
MEXICO CITY, Aug. 16 (Ifl-Ry-
Ting came from Tum-Brum ac-
cording to Diks-Yu.
Translated that means flying
saucers come from Mars accord-
ing to Diks-Yu, the head man on
that planet. Diks-Yu has been talk-
ing through "spiritualist chan-
nels" with Mexican medium Jose
The Mexican spiritualist said
Friday he had made his "first con-
tact" with the Martian chief. He
said Diks-Yu had told him civili-
zation on Mars was 2,000 years
ahead of earth's.
Ramirez said Diks-Yu told him
the flying saucers were on peace-
ful missions trying to investigate
the earth's development.
"Mars isn't named Mars at all

radio-run robot does all but rhumba—Louie the Robot does 24 human-like things
by radio, but dancing is not one of them. Seen at left doing the light fantastic with a girl during his
Hamburg, Germany debut, the mechanical man stepped on her toes in spite of his intricate controls
connected by two miles of wire wound through his torso. The product of two brilliant Swiss engi-
neers, Louie can smoke, blows the smoke through his nose, move his arms and lips, speaks when
spoken to, lights a cigaret when asked, sings, and walks as much as 15 miles unattended. At right,
Louie's secrets are revealed as his coat is doffed to show the maze of tubes, gadgets and wiring
which were designed by his inventors. Bars sticking from ears are transmitting and sending aerials.

Adlai's Grandfather Was Author
As Well as U. S. Vice-President
WASHINGTON; Aug. 11 (tP>—
Southern senators have discovered
a new "favorite author" and are
quoting his words with great relish.
His name—Adlai Ewing Steven-
son, vice president of the United
States during Grover Cleveland's
The reason for revived interest
in the courtly, good-humored elder
It isn't the elder Steven's strong
views on low tariffs and soft money
—he favored both—but his stand
on an issue that still blazes today
and which has southern senators
thumbing the musty old pages of
bygone congressional records.
The issue is that of unlimited de-
bate in the Senate, the weapon
which southern legislators tra-
ditionally use to filibuster federal
civil rights legislation to death.
Southern legislators feel that the
elder Stevenson summed up the
case for unlimited debate very elo-
quently in his final speech to the

German Court Convicts
2 For Misuse of Funds
MUNICH, Germany (IP) — Three
judges who were once members
of the Nazi party sentenced two
leading Jews to prison terms for
"misappropriating" funds for vic-
time of Nazism.
Philip Auerbach, highest rank-
ing Jewish government official in
postwar Germany, was sentenced
to two and one-half years impris-
onment. Chief Rabbi Aaron Ohren-
stein of the state of Bavaria re-
ceived a one-year term.
Auerbach, discharged chief of
I the Bavarian Restitution Office,
was found guilty of the misappro-
J priation of three million marks ear-
| marked for victims of Nazi terror
in World War 11. Ohrenstein was
I convicted of participating in the
Senate on March 3, 1897, when he
"It must not be forgotten that
the rules governing this body are
founded deep in human experience;
that they are the result of centur-
ies of tireless effort in the legis-
lative hall, to conserve, to render
stable and secure, the rights and
liberties which have been achieved
"In this chamber alone are pre-
served, without restraint, two es-
sentials of wise legislation and good
government—the right of amend-
ment and of debate. Great evils
often result from hasty legislation;
rarely from the delay which fol-
lows full discussion and deliber-
ation. In my humble judgment, the
historic Senate—preserving the un-
restricted right of amendment and
of debate, maintaining intact the
time-honored parliamentary meth-
ods and amenities which unfailing-
ly secure action alter deliberation
—possesses in our scheme of gov-
ernment a value which can not be
measured by words."
The southerners hope the grand-
son will heed his famed ancestor's
advice and abandon his reported
willingness to fight for new Sen-

tt seems that owning a Buick is some-
_|_ thing that a lot of folks dream about
—plan for—and finally do.
VVe say that because, so many times,
they say so in words like those above.
Those words make us happy, of course
— happy to know we sell a car which
means so much to those who own it.
But they make us feel just a little bit sad
as well—sad to realize all the years of
fun such folks have been missing for no
good reason at all.
For the fact is this:
If you can afford any new car, you can
afford a Buick.
You can afford the thrill of bossing
around that big Fireball 8 Engine that
purrs forth a mighty flow of power.
You can afford the gas bills —as any
owner of a 1952 Buick will tell you —
because that high-compression, valve-
in-head marvel gets a lot of miles from
a gallon of fuel.
Y>u can afford the extra luxury of a real
million dollar ride—the silken smooth-
ness of Dynaflow Drive* — the extra
room and comfort and style that have
put Buick popularity right up at the top
of the list, next to the "low-priced three."
So if you want to own a Buick—there's
just one thing to do:
Come in—pick the one of your cnoice—
Power Steering now available on Super as
well as Road master—optional at extra coU.
and let us show you how close the tigure
that goes on the bill of sale comes to
what you'd pay elsewhere.
As we've said before, your first car can
be a Buick. Why not take the Big Step
Equipment, accessories, trim arid models are subject
to change without notice. * Standard on Roadmaster,
optional at extra cost on other Series.
