Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - August 1, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa I. The Cedar Rapids Gazette: Thurs., Au*. I, 1974 Sp irit of 76 Gets Moving Profits Drop; Auto Makers Cite Inflation The Girls. A flashy reminder that tile nation's 200th anniversary is approaching will hit the streets of Cedar Rapids Friday when the “Spirit of 3776’’ bus starts regular service on KTC, Inc., routes. Ray Bagley, RTO president, said the bus, which is painted red, white and blue, will make its debut on the Cedar Rapids-Marion run. However, it will be used eventually on all the regular routes. No City Funds Decoration of the “Spirit of 1776’’ was financed by the Mid-America Bicentennial commission ias another step “to give visibility” to plans for observing the bicentennial, Robert M. L. Johnson, the commission’s project director, said. No city funds were used on the project. Bagley said the sides of the bus are emblazoned with the words “Spirit of 1776” in giant white Hefters against a red background. The national bicentennial logo appears on each side and on the rear of the bus. •You'll See It' The front and fop of the bus are punctuated by stars with sections of the bus also painted red, white and blue. “You'll be abl«> to see it coming," Bagley said. The bus is the second “visibility project” of the Mid-America Bicentennial commission. Earlier a lighted “Welcome" sign was installed at the Municipal airport. The sign proclaims its welcome in 16 different languages. DETROIT (AP) - The nation's Big Three auto makers1 blame rapid inflation for trim-! ming profits by $1.8 billion during the first half of 1974. For the consumer, the problems of the mammoth firms will translate into price increases on new models in September. Ford, which rounded out the first-half picture for the industry Wednesday with a reported 65 percent earnings decline compared with the same period last year, says it plans I an 8 percent increase in wholesale prices for the opening of the 1975 model year. The other makers plan similar increases, while leaving open the possibility that price tags will swell as the model year proceeds. Taken together, the Big Three’s first-half earnings were at their lowest level in 13 years. Ford reported earnings of $291 million on sales of $11.4 billion, idown from last year’s $755 million profit on revenues of $12.4 mation billion.
