The following dispatch second of three deals with this and other improvements now in the works As a result of a safety revolution in Detroit. By Patric k j. Suo Yan Detroit up Industry is in the safety revolution assure american a the Auto throes of a which will Drivers and passengers dramatically improved Protection against Highway death and injury starting with this Falls new 1967 models. It was a revolution fomented outside the Industry and fanned by Congress. The Industry a initial reaction was to look the other Way hoping the question and what has become a very real threat of government safety regulations would go away. But the revolution now has reached into the executive suites where decisions Are made which affect 190 million americans to a degree unsuspected by most. Why was the revolution so slow in coming in the parlance of the Public relations boys it is a an image but to critics it is the result of the Industry a decision to concentrate on flashy Eye catching models without adequate provision for safety. Obvious Paradox there is an obvious Paradox in the fact that u. S. Scientific and technical knowledge can routinely Send Man safely into space whereas the 1966 automobile kills and males with devastating frequency. The Industry now is moving to eliminate the causes of that Paradox. Automotive engineers dealing with safety design and stress have been aware of what can and should be done to make cars safer. They have applied the astounding advances of science and technology to designing faster and Sleeker cars. They also have added safety features which unquestionably have saved thousands of lives. Examples Are safety Glass improved suspension and lower centers of Gravity which make it almost impossible for the modern automobile to flip Over. But the critics Are zeroing in on what the Industry has not done and Here they claim to have found Detroit s Achilles Heel. The Industry currently is giving its chief attention to the so called a second collision a what happens to cause death or injury when the occupants Are thrown against objects within the cards body Shell in the milliseconds after the collision. Check your car what Are these objects look around your own car. Make a Price r ise concerns economists Washington up a administration economists Busy compiling figures for a presidential decision on a possible tax increase Are studying with some concern new reports of a Sharp Rise in prices last month. The labor department reported thursday its consumer Price Index Rose four tenths of i per cent in March compared to february s increase of five tenths of i per cent. Arthur Ross commissioner of labor statistics said a the widespread character of the increases gives cause for the March increase stemmed mostly from higher Price tags on food but prices were also up on apparel used cars and nearly All types of services. The latest jump brought the consumer Price Index to 112 per cent of the 1957-59 average. In shopping Basket terms this Means a housewife pays $11.20 for the same package of goods and services that Cost Only $10 in the 1957-59 base period. The White House has been holding off a decision on whether to raise taxes. Mixed economic indicators some showing gains against inflation and others showing losses gave a Muddy picture of economic trends economists said. The latest word was that president Johnon will make up ids mind near the end of the month. List and compare it with the results of a careful scientific study conducted by Cornell University a automotive crash injury research acir Laboratory. Acir listed the major cause of death or serious injury in the a second collision Quot As the steering wheel steering column instrument panel being thrown out of the car the Windshield door structures roof structures the Back of the front seat Windshield Corner posts and the rear View Mirror. The acir list was readily accepted by Detroit when it was issued in 1955, after All it merely confirmed common sense. Chrysler vice president Harry e. Chesebrough said he was experimenting in an Effort to make the steering wheel safer As Long ago As 1932. But ask the critics of this list could have been arrived at through common sense in 1932 and was confirmed scientifically in 1935, Why is it that 1966 Model cars have rear View mirrors that become scalpels when your Little girl s face smashes into one.

Mew rear Mirror Larry Nagler chief Automo Tulve safety Engineer at american motors said the Industry soon will have a rear View Mirror that will easily deflect away from a hurtling hit squarely it will crack like a laminated Windshield and not shatter into murderous pieces. But the rear View Mirror is at the Bottom of acir s list. At the top is the steering wheel and the steering column. In a collision the steering column can become a deadly Spear. Ford took the first important step toward meeting the problem in 1955 by introducing a deforming steering wheel with a recessed Hub. It absorbed a second collision Quot Energy and improved chances for the Driver to escape an Accident with his life. But the real breakthrough was made by general motors corp. Pm s 1967 models will have a steering column that will collapse 8v4 inches when the Driver is thrown against the wheel in a collision. Over the next two years the collapsible column will be Standard. No one knows How Many lives it will save or How Many crushed chests it will prevent. But even the most pessimistic engineers Tingle with Pride at its possibilities. Change panel no. 2 on acir s Hazard list is the instrument panel. What is being done in this area is second As a topic in Detroit today Only to the collapsible steering column Auto safety in general and the fact that the Mustang Sells at list Price. Coming up within the next three years is an instrument panel that will act As a steel Pillow to vulnerable Heads and knee Caps. It will take advantage of a steel that deforms when hit hard enough. It will slow the impetus of the head or knee just enough to absorb the Force of the Impact in contrast to the present deadly Impact. Automotive engineers Are confident that instrument panel impacts that would crush your Skull and explode your Kneecaps in 1966 models will be reduced to relatively minor injuries when the new panels Are ready. Engineers Are wrestling with other deadly items on the acir list. Develops Windshield Glass makers recently developed windshields that will withstand twice the Impact of 1966 models. Engineers feel the new penetration Point a the head goes through the windmills at 23 Miles an hour a is about As High As it can go without fracturing skulls. Work on disc brakes with anti Locking devices a resulting in controllable non swerving emergency stops a is progressing at Ford and american motors. Pm is giving a hard look at improving the Energy absorption of front ends in collisions. Stylists Are cleansing future cars of Sharp knobs transmission levers a any Metal Points that could cause death or injury and Are so readily apparent in 1966 cars.
