Mason City Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - February 20, 1963, Mason City, Iowa Flu cases mounting See story on page 2 HOME EDITION JFK didnt won to pressure Russ on Cuba issue By MARGUERITE HIGGINS Ntw York Herald Tribune Service WASHINGTON The real reason why the New Fron tier is so angry at the con tinuing clamor on Cuba is now out The real reason New Frontiersmen hasten to assert is not so much the po litical sting of the issue al though it is candidly ad mitted that this can be pain ful But the real reason for official indignation at the hectoring about Cuba evolves from the hithertoun disclosed thesis that Premier Khrushchev secretly wants to get his 17000 troops out of Cuba and would do so if we would only let him save face by keeping the issue out of the headlines The thesis is of course a recognizable offshoot of the wounded b e a r theory whereby this country must at all costs avoid exploiting its victory over Cuba by driv ing Khrushchev into a corner where he could have no al ternative but to lash back with nuclear claws y Pie plate7 engine is developed Under test for autos By BEN L KAUFMAN LONDON UPI A German manufacturer is working on de Aelopment of an engine no big ger than a pie plate butpower ful enough to run an automobile The developers say they will be able to demonstrate the revolutionary Wankel engine in a passenger car this year The manufacturer is the Ger man firm builder of automobiles and motorcycles which describes the tiny engine as a triangle in a pie plate The developers say it will run on cheap low quality fuel The engines design is the product of Felix Wankel 60 who spent 30 years working on his own to produce a light high power engine which would out last conventional auto engines and burn low cost fuel Wankel and NSU jointly hold the patent rights and the US firm of CurtisWright holds North American licenses for the engine The Wankel engine has a tri angular rotor spinning between two pie plates The shaft on which it spins is connected through a conventional auto mobile clutch to a regular trans mission Between each of the rotors three flat sides and the round walls of the pie plates there is a chamber intowhich fuel is fed once during each complete turn When the chamberpasses the fueling area the mixture is fired by a spark plugl and this explosion is the source of the engines power as it is in a conventional auto engine After the explosion that chamber of the spinning rotor passes an outlet for burned gases and then turns on to be fueled again One chamber is always being fueled one is always firing and one is ridding itself of burned gases in each complete turn of the rotor There is a continuous driving force then against the rotor with no movement or space wasted This and few moving parts is the source of the Wankels efficiency Because the rotor spins on a shaft instead of surging up and down as do pistons in a con ventional auto engine there is almost no vibration and wear is significantly reduced the de velopers say NSU said the Wankel has at least as much output for its internal displacement as similar Taylor highly modified racing engines but with fuel consumption of sedan power plants Tiny NSU

underground nuclear explosions Such a concession never has been spelled out to newsmen by members of the US delegation however The negotiations have been deadlocked for weeks be tween the Soviet
