Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - May 24, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa 8 The Cedar Rapids Gazette:    Kri.,    May    24.    1974 I derision I odd) Bv Jav Hiarbutt Albert Vote Passes Debt Hike, 191-190 'Chrome-Plated Nightmare' NEW YORK (AP) - This Sunday night, ABC-TV is offering a two-hour tape replay of the day’s Indianapolis 500. an event some consider a motorized loony display and others a legitimate sports contest. But come Monday night, the Public Broadcasting Service will offer a far broader look at motor mania with “The Chrome-Plated Nightmare", a one-hour study of America's long love affair with the automobile. Those who survive Memorial day traffic might check out this show, though they're herewith warned it is uneven, gabby to a fault and never asks Detroit auto moguls to explain themselves or their wares. As its title suggests, the program is pretty much of a raspberry directed primarily at the raised - fin. chrome -crazy, power-mad golden era of happy motoring—the mid-1950s to 1970. * * * It’s a generally predictable inspection of the attitudes that led to that automotive mess, starting with the obligatory pilgrimage to Los Angeles, where the car is rumored to be king. But there are some fine segments tha toffer considerable fuel for thought, particularly producer-narrator Bill Stewart’s sporadic use of old auto show newsreels and commercials to make his point. One of the latter is a classic piece of pop art that seems awfully silly in this day of relatively sober, gasconscious motoring. It’s a cartoon of a car snoozing at dawn at a deserted race track. "The 1969 Plymouth GTN.” breaths the announcer, "can devour anything in its path." And for one minute the snoring gradually becomes a snarling roar, the car’s features contort, and exhaust flames spout. Another fascinating segment: An advertising man explaining the selling of another would-be mean street machine. the Pontiac CITO, with heavy-handed appeals to the youth culture and large-scale pop promotion in songs by such worthies as "The Tigers" and "Bonny and the Day-tonas". ♦ * * There also are unexpected words by Carroll Shelby, whose credentials as a racing driver and engineer are without question. "I don’t think that racing actually improves the breed of the average American passenger car," says the heretical Texan. “As far as I'm concerned, racing is a sport." (kl Detroit's legacy of big cars and massive motors, Shelby says: "B’s time that we realize we don't need all these monstrosities in this country and I think if they (auto makers) don't learn to respond, then somebody is going to respond for them." Alas, these moments are too few. The show sputters to a close with a limp suggestion by auto critic John Jerome that less driving by more people is the only way we ll save our world from ruin. It’s doubtful that’ll happen. Perhaps the only hope lies in passing a federal law based on what George Gobel said once happened to him when he was out tooling around in his big, prestigious machine. A cop arrested him. he griped, "for driving with a haughty expression." national debt ceiling I mj||i„n _ |hp , billion to a total of $49o Television Listings 9—KCRG-TV, Cedar Rapids 2—WMT-TV, Cedar Roptds 7-KWWL-TV, Waterloo 3—KTVO, Ottumwa 4—WHBF-TV, Rock Island 6—WOC-TV, Davenport 8—WKBT, La Crosse 10—KROC-TV, Rochester 12—KIIN-TV, Iowa City 13—WHO-TV, Des Moines 40-KDUB, Dubuque Friday Night 6:00 3—A ie A a Aes* 2—Ac or" ***** 7—Mew*, am mer, Sots.

The 191-190 vote sent the hill to the senate. I nless it is enacted by June 130, the debt ceiling will drop I to $400 billion, which would be about $75 billion less than the actual national debt. The Tote followed a debate in which members generally denounced excessive spending, while Democrats accus-cd President Nixon's admin- J istration of piling up record deficits and thus forcing big increases in the treasury’s borrowing authority.
