Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - May 4, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa Progress Could Make Automobile Almost as Good as Nagging Mom ft., ntnlr WAD! By Dick West WASHINGTON (DPI) KV- eryone who tools about in molor vehides of the continu- ing battle oj-'wits between mo- torists and auto safety experts. The safety experts are forever coming up with ingenuous new devices squawking noises, weight sensors, ignition in- terlocks, etc. to force motor- ists to fasten their seat belts. But m o t o r i s t s have been equally brilliant in figuring oul ways to neutralize this equip- ment. Thus the seat belt due has become pretty much of a standoff. I "was discussing this situation a few days ago with an auto Dick safety expert Lappstrapp. named Sidney I said, "Isn't it ironic that a country that has the technical know-how to land a man on the moon, can't devise a foolproof seat belt Lappstrapp turned red. "Don't bet on he said angrily. "We safety experts are on the verge of a breakthrough that will make it impossible to drive a car with the seat belts unbuckled." Self-Deslructs He was reluctant to give any details, but in principle the sys- tem will work like this: If anyone turns on the ignition switch of a car without first lashing himself to the seat, the vehicle will self-destruct. I said, that taking auto safety a little too Lappstrapp said the important thing is that it works. "A motorist is going to think twice about neglecting his seat belt if failure to buckle up means getting blown he pointed out. I commended Lappstrapp for having finally solved the prob- lem. "Having your car explode in the driveway certainly 'cuts down your chances of being seriously injured in a traffic ac- I said. New Horizons Progress in this field started me to wondering if the concept of scat belt enforcement couldn't also be used for other worthwhile social or health pur- poses. Many motorists, for example, forget to wear their galoshes when they go out in rainy weather. Thus running the risk of catching pneumonia. So how about a sensory device on the gas pedal that is trig- gered by wet shoes? It causes .he horn to start beeping, re- Dam Mole Poses Threat to Form, WINNIPEG, Man. (UPI) A mole, slightly larger than a field mouse, is causing sleepless nights for Fred Orchard, whose "arm is seven miles ,west of flood-ravaged Carman, Man. His home and his yard are dry, protected by a dike holding jack up to five feet of water. But a stubborn mole consjs- ently burrows into the dike, causing a leak which quickly erupts into a jet of water. "Four times during .the. night ny men and to plug the eaks caused by the )rchard. "I have set traps for t, but so far I've been unable to catch it. "As iong as it is free, it could jut my home and property underwater." minding you to go back Inside and put on your rubbers. Or how about a steering wheel wilh a metahlolism sensor? Should you go out without tak- ing your vitamin pills, the sen sor would cause the steering wheel to lock the moment you touched it. Carried to its logical ends, an automobile could be the next best thing to a nagging mother. Scout Unit Puts Wet Blanket on 'Playboy' Patrol ATLANTA (UPI) The Rab- bit patrol or the Bunny patrol might have been acceptable. But the Atlanta Area Council of the Boy Scouts of America de- cided Tuesday that a Playboy patrol was going a little too far. A group of boys in Troop 61 of suburban Smyrna named them- selves the Playboy -patrol last week rejecting traditional patrol names like the Owl patrol or the Mole patrol as boring. A presentation of bunny patches and flags was to have been the.troop Thurs- day from a personal emissary from Playboy head Hugh Hefner and four shapely bunnies from the local Playboy club. But the Atlanta Scout council called a halt to the planned'ac- tivities Tuesday, saying the'pre- sentation, or any further activi- tiesinvolving the Playboy orga- nization; would not be permit- ted. "Troops are encouraged to de- velop, their own names'.and in-, .said Tom Uffelman, ex- ecutive director of the council. "But'they are not "encouraged to develop names like .the Playboy patrol. "It's kind of one of those ri- diculous things that unfortu- nately get more publicity than something that is done construc- tively." Services (Continued from t'age 3.) ave. SW. Paul Pfaltzsraff.

Both Each was a kind of comeback. Nixon said: "Very Difficult" "I can see it years from now i a President of the United States may be island- ing in this very place. It will be the year 2000, and he will say of this generation, 'They did not fail when the going was "very difficult and when Ameri- can leadership was so import- ant in the world.' Durante said: "Inka-Dinka-Doo." Both speeches .won standing ovations, but in a husky whisper and laced with haunting tears to the eyes of many strong men gathered at the Banshees luncheon which is a feature of the annual Publishers conven- tion. You see, Durante suffered a stroke in November of about the time Nixon'.won his' overwhelming mandate. It af- fected his left side and speech. He is wheeled .about in a rolling chair but, as someone once said of another gallant soul, Jimmy can strut sitting down. His eyes still bat merrily. His cockeyed hat has never recovered from being run over by a Mack truck shortly after World war I. In their separate ways, the two performers deeply moved their audiences and were in turn touched by the response.

But' Durante sent back word through, his wife Marjorie that he'd.make it, somehow. "Somehow" Forces The "somehow" forces formed at American Airlines offices in L.A. and New York..
