WE RESERVE THE RIGHT TO UMIT QUANTITIES Low-pollution car design competition won by UBC Thursday, March 30, 1972 THE IETHBR1DGE HtRAlD 23 Complaints on air pollutionforcing new types of cars By LAWRENCE STUNTZ NEW YORK (AP) The car you will he driving in 10 years may run on electricity, steam, natural gas or even sunlight. Bui tlic chances arc that it will still look pretty much like your present one, with wheels at al! tour corners, Only the engine will be differ- ent. The rush for a new type of car comes, of course, from the current complaints about air Dilution. Proposed on the emission from gasoline engines will make present auto- iiobiles more expensive and }alky. Also, oil men say Icacl- 'rce gasoline, needed for some types of emission control, will cost more and give fewer miles a the gallon. So everybody is looking for a new kind of en- gine. Right now, steam power is getting the publicity. But it is not at all certain what type o( engine will win out in the end. Electric power, liquefied gas, modified gasoline-electric drives are all in the running. And, of course, better emis- sion control may keep the ordi- nary gasoline engine on top, USES SAME ENGINE If the fuel is not to be gaso- line, the easiest substitute would bo liquefied natural This already has been used ex- by a gas company and some police forces on the Pacific coast. The advantages are that it uses the same engine as a gasoline car. The only changes are the sub- stitution of a pressurized gas WHAT ON EARTH HAVE THEY BEEN DOING? Pad- dling and pushing an enormous block of ice 2Va miles down the Otonabee River north of Peterborough, Ont., that's what. Gordon Gray (left) and Barry Wootten weren't tho only divers to emerge from the water with Tcy hair and beards at the end of the eigth annual Ice Flow Rate. Eighteen teams took part. VANCOUVER (CP) Tile Jniversity of British Columbia las won one distinction in a continent-wide competition to design a small, low-pollution au- ,o mobile. Massachusetts Institute o f Technology, sponsor of the con- est, announced recently fbat he 130-member UBC design earn was the largest put to- jether by any of the 65 Cana- dian and United States universi- ies entered in the competition. "With the size of our team and with the detail we've gone into, I don't see how anybody can touch says Dean ilacKay, a fourth-year niecban- cal engineering student who leads the UBC project. "Still, some pretty powerful miversities in the States are in this competition." The UBC team members, all volunteers and all undergradu- ates, are doing their own fabri- cating as well as designing. MUST CUT POLLUTION The competition calls for the design and construction of a wo-passenger vehicle meeting Canadian and U.S. safety re- quirements. It must carry standard equipment, withstand a crash into a wall at five miles an hour and cut pollution ex- haust emissions. The rules call for students to design the frame, the body, a roll-cage and an energy-absorb- ing bursper. Maximum allow- able ear length is 10 feet. Other Canadian universities Involved in the project include Sir George Williams, Montreal; University of Western Ontario, London; University o! Waterloo, Waterloo, Ont.; and Queen's University, Kingston, Ont. Mr. MacKay, a native of the agricultural community of Sar- dis, B.C., was one of a group of 15 engineering students at UBC who worked during the summer to prepare preliminary design proposals for the urban vehicle competition. The UBC car will be powered by a four-cylinder internal com- bustion engine converted to run on natural gas for low exhaust emissions. The design team includes chemical engineering students, who are working on a catalytic muffler to reduce emissions of hydrocarbons and carbon mon- oxide from the exhaust system. PUSH-BUTTON START An unusual feature is that in order to enter and start the en- gine, the driver must push num- bered buttons in a combination sequence. "This is built-in theft protec- tion since only the proper sequ- ence will says Mr. MacKay. "And if a driver were drunk, he probably wouldn't be able to start the car." The body design includes a steel frame to deflect the engine away from the interior of the car in event of a collision. Vehicles must be completed in time for trials at General Mo- ors testing grounds near De- troit next August when entries vill be judged on clean opera- tion, safety and 12 other counts. Cost of the UBC project, first estimated at between and now is expected to be closer to JM.OOO. Contributions of have been received so far from foun- dations and a number of compa- nies interested in the concept. Mr. MacKay says he hopes additional contributions will be forthcoming to cover the full cost tank in the trunk and a change in the carburetor. Tte changeover is so simple, in fact, that some cars row in use are driven on LNG while in the city and shift to gasoline out in the country. Use of electricity from batter- ies suffers from the fact that batteries are heavy, expensive, short-lived and give a car a range of less than 100 miles. A hybrid gasoline-electric drive has been proposed, but it has the disadvantages of both sys- tems. Batteries, however, are per- fectly feasible sources of power for short-range cars, say for the second or station car in a subur- ban household or for urban de- livery trucks. Lead-acid batteries like the storage battery In your car give more to church NEW YORK (CP) Churcb members in the United States each contribute about more annually thau their Canadian counterparts, a U.S. church publication indicates. Figures in the 1972 Yearbook of American Churches, com- piled by the National Council of Churches, show that the per capita total contributed by church members in the U.S. in 1971 was The Canadian figure is The yearboook says that con- tributions reported by 45 U.S. communions with a total mem- b e r s h i p of total Among eight Ca- nadian communions with a total membership of a total of was contributed. Constant H. Jacquet, re- searcher and editor of the year- book, said the publication con- tains more information than ever on Canadian churches. In all, 76 Canadian bodies have supplied directories this News In Nutshell SIGN TRADE PACT KARACHI (AP) China and Pakistan signed an agreement today for the supply of addi- tional material to feed an in- dustrial development financed and built near Rawalpindi by the Peking government. The de- velopment produces road rollers, sugar mill machinery, railway axles and heavy foundry cranes. FIND ANCIENT SHOP Pozzuoli, Italy (Reuter) Archeologists said here they have found what they believe to be a workshop for ancient Ro- man sculptors in the Bay of Naples. They said that the workshop appeared to be the centre of a large colony of art- ists during the first century BC. They found several statues in unpolished marble. year. Of these a total of 29 Ca- nadian churches supplied mem- bership statistics compared with 10 last year. These 29 have a membership of Largest is the Roman Catholic Church with members. The next two largest Canadian c h u r c li e s are the Anglican Church of Canada with and the United Church of Can- ada with The yearbook shows that growth of U.S. church member- ship, which soared in the 1950s and slowed in the 1960s, now has come to a virtual standstill. "We're In a period of stagna- said Jacquet. "There are spotty gains and losses, but over-all, it amounts to a stand- still." could give a delivery' truck a range of 50 miles at 30 miles an hour, says Dr. G. J. Murphy of Northwestern University. If it averaged four stops a mile with a maximum speed between stops of 30 miles an hour it would have a 23-mitc range. .MAY SOLVE PROBLEM There are two proposals to solve the problem of an electric car for long-distance highway driving. One is for a new type of bat- tery which could be charged in five minutes, while the driver got a cup of coffee. Charging stations would substitute for fill- ing stations along the highways. Another proposal is to mount :he automobile batteries in a xay. When the charge was about exhausted, the driver would go inlo a replacement station. Tho tray of discharged batteries would slide out, a new- ly-charged tray would slide in and tlie driver could be on his way. The station would re- charge the old batteries and have them ready for the next man. Steam power was the original way of moving vehicles. Tho Stanley Steamer automobile is part of American folklore even though the company went out oi existence during the Depres- sion. The Stanley held the 105- mile-an-hour record in 1906. STEAJI POWERS BUS Tlte steam engine is back- two of them, in fact. One steam bus already toured the U.S. on exhibition and now is carrying Boyle's Column By HAL BOYLE NEW YORK CAP) Re- marks that a dogcatcher gets Lied of hearing: "Art art, comes Bozo" "Bozo Barker, you're a dog's worst friend." "Don't worry, Prince. He can't touch you as long as I have you on the leash." "Why is it you generally catch only little stray dogs, Bozo, and let the big ones get away? You're not scared of them, are "As soon as he starts chas- ing that small dog on the cor- ner, kids, let's open the rear door of his car and let all the others get away." "Please, Mr. Barker, can't I have that funny roly poly puppy in the oorner? Cross my heart. I promise I'll take real good care of him." "Sic him, Buck! That's him. Sic SAY IT ISN'T SO "They say that if nobody claims a stray dog at the pound you put him in a place wliere there's poison gas. You wouldn't do a thing uke that, would you Mr. Barker? Tell me it's just a joke." "Pop can', you get some other job? All the kids tease me, and some won't even play with me because you're the dogcatcher." "That little skinny poodle you just caught looks awful sick, Mr. Bozo. If we all give you a nickel apiece, will you let us have him? Maybe we can make him well." "Somebody told that if you have any Ieftover dogs you make them into hot dogs and cook them and eat them. That's just a big fib, isn't it, Mr. "If be comes this way with Ms net .Jimmy, trip hirr, up with your shinny stick. He'll never catch us." "Why are you so mad at dogs, Mr. Barker? Did one of them bite you when you were a little now you're just trying to get passengers in California. Tha other is a steam turbine for au- tomobiles, promised by William Lea r. 11 has driven a senger bus hut hasn't had the exposure of the other bus. The first steam bus, built by Brobcck and Associates, uses d iescl oi I and burns it compIciely thsn ss oruin uty diesel engine does, the builders say. However, fuel consumption ts reported to be twice as high as a regular bus and it takes 10 minutes io get up enough steam JQ start out in the morning. Lear's bus, which has had Ka trial run, uses a different kind of engine. Lear claims it takes only ona minute to get up steam enough to move and 90 seconds for full power. A boiler-engine combination small enough to fit into a pas- senger car is in the works. So the world's choices are stil] open: an improved gasoline en- gine steam or electricily.
