Space Age Car Stars In Motorama School .
DETROIT—Firebird III makes
a final test run at the General
Motors Technical Center before
leaving for New York and Boston
to star in GM Motorama of 19j9.
GM's newest experimental gas
turbine car is guided by a single
stick located between the two
passengers which takes the place
of conventional steering wheel,
brake pedal and accelerator.
Missile-like in appearance, it
has two engines and uses space
Me electronics and transistors.
It will team with GM's 1959 cars
in the Motorama to show the
public the latest in automobiles
of today and tomorrow.

off, so it doesn't hurt any more.
But my front and back are very
painful, all torn and dirty.
My owner took me home, where
I am now in a dark closet on the
shelf along with a lot of junk.
My owner tried to sell me, but
couldn't, so he put me up and
next year he will try again. I
doubt if anyone will buy me—
the state T'm in. Guess it's just
as well—I'd never last another
MOVING DAY FOR HELEN
By Edward Earl Lee
THE office bell disrupted or-
dered routine into a rushed
confusion immediately following
Its jangling reverberation, as the
employees prepared to leave. But
Jerome Clayton remained seated,
morosely. Yesterday, he had been
a participant in that scene. To-
day— well, no use hurrying home
to a bare two-room apartment. Be-
cause, Helen would have taken
the furniture. She had bought it
with installments from her sal-
The janitor's noise, as he emp-
tied waste paper baskets, roused
Clayton from his reverie and so he
left. But outside Clayton halted,
uncertain where to go—what to
do. Well, there was no use hang-
ing around the office building. He
lit a cigarette from the lighter
and then strolled aimlessly along,
with unpleasant thoughts accom-
So, after a year, his marriage
was over. Helen should have known
Grace meant nothing to him. He
had tried to discourage Grace in
every way short of bluntly saying
he was not interested. However,
Helen had thought otherwise and
thereby decided to show her hus-
band that other men found her de-
sirabel. Therefore, she started act-
ing up to handsome, debonaire
Charlie "Good Time" Locklear.
And, for good measure, she ex-
tolled his virtues in her daily con-
Exasperated eventually Clayton
had told Helen that if she ad-
mired Locklear so much, why
didn't she marry him? And. Clay-
ton would never miss Helen . . .
with Grace available. A stormy
quarrel followed, terminating in
Helen's declaration she would
move out tomorrow—which now
was today, Friday.
Qayton's thoughts were rudely
jerked back to the present by
sounds of schreeching brakes and
the vitrolic tirade of a truck driv-
er. He was starting to cross a
street, against the red light. Grin-
ning sheepishly he glanced at the
street to determine his location,
then stared surprisedly. He was
but one block .away from home!
His subconscious mind had direct-
ed his footsteps in the route he
habitually followed when returning
Clayton slowly turned the cor-
ner. Suddenly his mouth felt dry;
his throat, constricted, and. there
was a sickening void where his
stomach should have been. Heavy
weights seemed attached to his
feet as he shambled on unwilling-
ly, yet unable to stop. He rec-
ognized pieces of the furniture
which were loaded on the van. As
he reached the doorsteps one of
the men went into the house. The
other one said to Clayton:
"Gotta match, pal?"
"No. But will a cigarette lighter
The man accepted that instru-
ment and began the somewhat
difficult task of endeavoring to
light his pipe with the lighter.
"Beats all," he grumbled be-
tween puffs, "how much extra
work some people cap cause. Take
this customer for instance. We
get her stuff all packed, drives
her to our warehouses where she's
arranged to have these things
stored, and what happens? Says
she's changed her mind and wants
it all hauled back."
"What!" exclaimed Jerry.
"Yeah," the drayman continued,
"I was surprised, myself. But I
think she must be all shook up.
Because when we get back here,
she bursts out crying and runs up
the steps . . ."
The man suddenly removed his
pipe from between slack lips. He
scratched the lobe of one ear with
its stem. A bewildered expression
was stamped upon his face as he
said to himself:
"Now I wonder what made that
guy forget his lighter an go tear-
ing up those steps like that!"

Grow Without Your Loyalty"

ligion. We remain the atheists wo
have always been; we are doing
as much as we can to liberate
those people who are still under
the spell of this religous opiate."
Though all rebellions do not
appear to be communistically in-
spired they are all a part of a
satanic system that has engulfed
the earth. Man has always had
a "spirit of rebellion", but it has
been held in subjection due to
other forces at work in the world.
Today man has cast off the yok
that once held this "unconscious"
spirit in check and now the gulf
between the Christian and non-
Christion world is ever widening.
Racial strife is part of that
rebellion. Communism infiltra-
tion plants seeds of the rebellion.
The "cry for peace" is a product
of its longing. The centralized,
stressing demands of government
contribute and help feed its fes-
tering appetite. Oppressive courts
are contributing to its cause.
The United States is fast be-
coming ripe for plucking. The
United Nation Charter is firmly
entrenched as a part of "the law
of the land". Our educational
system is being uprooted from its
foundations. It6 churches are be-
ing misled by its "supposed" head,
the National Council of Churches
in America. Its monitary system
is overburdened with the largest
debit in the history of man, half
of tt Spent on "foreign aid" un-
der a United Nation label.
But there is still hope. Though
our two party system has long
since vanished from our national
life, indications are that the
Johnson-Rayburn coalition maybe
a saving force in our time. Ru-
mor are out that they, among
others, plan to jump party lines
and organize the next congress
with conservative members lead-
ing the important committees and
functions in congress. The "lib-
eral" factions have led us down
this long road toward a com-
munistic government but a good
house cleaning could result should
this new coalition take effect in
