After school, Ralph Jr., climbs into his one-seat convertible and tears around an eighth-of-a-mile race track in the back yard. "Oh, this is his second car," said "Ralph Sr. "When'he was four he drove a smaller car I made for him. "I spent $1,600 on this car and have been offered $4,000 for >t. I started with a cut down Austin chassis." Little Ralph's auto has fancy fish tail fenders like the big cars and can whiz up to 70 miles an hour. He isn't allowed to go over 15, though. Curtis Smith, believed to be the world's youngest motorist, drives a stripped-down hot rod in San Diego. He is all of 3 years old. Curtis hasn't been talking long but he can toddle into his jalopy and "rev" 'er up. His gasoline-motor car has three fourths horsepower. You will never see Curtis wheeling into Romanoff's parking lot, diapers fluttering, however. Like the other baby drivers, his motoring is restricted to the back yard. Moppet motorists also include 4-year-old William Whiting, who is in a class with Ronald O'Connor, Bing Crosby and other owners of fancy foreign cars. William boasts an Italian model, a 39-inch-long baby Algat. His grandfather, oilman Loren Hillman, bought it for $400. "The family gave me heck for getting it for a four-year-old," he said. "So I'm replacing the gasoline motor with an electric motor until he is five." Theater Schedules i. OHIO - "Mogambo" 3:05, 5:15, 7:20, 9:30.
