Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - May 4, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa Progress Could Make Automobile Almost os Good as Nagging Mom —Worship Services (Continued from Page 3.) fly Dick West WASHINGTON (UPI) Everyone who tools about in motor vehicles is aware of the continuing battle of wits between motorists and auto safety experts. The safety experts are forever coming up with ingenuous new devices — squawking noises, weight sensors, ignition interlocks, etc. — to force motorists to fasten their seat belts. Hut motorists have been equally brilliant in figuring out ways to neutralize this equipment. Thus the seat belt duel has become pretty much of a standoff. I was discussing this situation a few days ago with an auto safety expert named Kidney Lappstrapp. 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 enforcer?” Lappstrapp turned red. "Don’t bet on that,” 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-Destructs He was reluctant to give any details, but in principle the system 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. Dick West seriously injured in a traltic accident,” I said. New Horizons Progress in this field started me to wondering if the concept of seat belt enforcement couldn’t also be used for other worthwhile social or health purposes. 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 triggered by wet shoes? It causes the horn to start beeping, re minding you to go back inside and put on your rubbers. Dr how about a .steering wheel with a metablolism sensor? Should you go out without taking your vitamin pills, the .sensor would cause the steering wheel to lock the moment you touched it Carried to its logical ends, an automobile could tx* the next best thing to a nagging mother. Scout Unit Puts Wet Blanket on Playboy' Patrol ATLANTA (UPI) - The flab-bit patrol or the Punny patrol might have been acceptable. But the Atlanta Area Council of the Boy Scouts of America decided Tuesday that a Playboy patrol was going a little too far.

"A motorist is going to think twice about neglecting his seat belt if failure to buckle up means getting blown up,” he pointed out. I commended Lappstrapp for having finally solved the problem.

"Our Father, Who?" Nixon, Durante Make Comeback Talks By Boh Considine NEW YORK—The two most pampered and appreciated travelers last week were President Nixon and Jimmy Durante. The President flew to Jackson, Miss., in the splendor of Air Force One and got the warmest reception he's had since Watergate sprang a leak. Durante flew from Los Angeles to New York in an American Airlines 747 and was treated like a visiting oil potentate at the Waldorf-Astoria. Both made speeches. Each was a kind of comeback. Nixon said: “Very Difficult” "I can see it now—25 years from now ... a President of the United States may be standing 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 American leadership was so important in the world.’ ” Durante said: "Inka-Dinka-Doo.” Both speeches won standing ovations, but Duranie’s—spoken in a husky whisper and laced with haunting melody—brought tears to the eyes of many strong men gathered at the Banshees luncheon which is a feature of the annual Publishers convention. You see, Durante suffered a stroke in November of 197*2— ■ about Hie time Nixon won his overwhelming mandate. It affected 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. There must have been occasions re cently when the President doubted if he had a friend in ZODIAC NO-SAUCr INN 5185-lth AVL MARION TURN RT. AT 30th ST. TONITE fcNJOY THE STYLISTIC & FREE SPIRITED FOLK GUITAR OF: “DAVE WILLIAMS” 8 PM-CLOSING the world outside his immediate family and Bebe, but now he stood there in a land where there used to be a bounty paid for Republican hides, transfixed by the applause and friendly support of the state s two Democratic eminences, James Eastland, chairman of the senate judiciary committee and John Stennis, chairman of the armed forces committee. Their presence was a tacit promise that they would be in the President’s corner (with all their senatorial votes) if the house of representatives impeaches and asks the senate to convict. Encouraging Stay Moreover, the President was warmed instead of chilled by a newspaper for a change during his brief but encouraging stay. The Jackson Daily News, with a front page printed in red. white and blue. stated that it had taken a poll which showed 97.7 percent of its readers wanted the President to "hang in there.” It added that TV commentators are so unfair to him that their treatment amounts to a nightly "lynching.” One ran only imagine Nixon's joy as he was rushed to his jet and zipped back to Washington But at the Waldorf, about 2,000 publishers, editors and their; friends saw Durante’s emotions "live.” And it isn t likely that anyone present will forget for a long, long time. It was a kind of miracle, really. In the first place, nobody associated with King Features Syndicate expected Durante to accept the invitation to be the Banshees’ guest of honor and receive the organization’s "Silver Lady” award from the host, Bill Hearst. It was patently too much to ask of an 81-year-old man in a chair, particularly a chair with wheels, a man in need of his good strong nurse, Ron Woods. 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 LA. and New York. Durante was wheeled aboard the 747 at Los Angeles International airport by a team headed by Bill Hippie, Bill Tinsmans and Bud Saunders. American put a company doctor aboard, in case. : At New York. Durante was transferred to the tender loving care of Kay Hansen, the coun try’s best public relations girl, David Frailey, Felix Edwards. Clair Haggan and Dennis Gonzales. The Waldorf had his suite ready for him, a doctor nearby, Baby Blues 8 pk. togo 125 Olympia on Tap and any dish he wanted prepared. Meyer Davis "played” him to his table at the luncheon with the strains of Jimmy’s theme song, "Jnka-Dinka-Doo,” his musical signature since 1918 Every body stood up and clapped as people do for the finish of the Boston marathon. Jimmy had made it. His mission was accomplished. But. hold! After accepting the late Willy Pogany’s Silver Lady statue from Hearst. Jimmy’s good arm moved and his eyes told his wife that he wanted a microphone brought close to him. After a poignantly long time, the "Inka” lyrics started coming from him in the wonderful dese and dom style of old. painfully spaced but unmistakable. It was too much, but then Jimmy went slowly, gamely, into "If You’re Young at Heart”, and just about everybody broke up. URBANA FEED & IMPLEMENT CO. MAIN STRUT—UMANA Presents Reggy Bruce Band • Sat.
