that makes all North lowans MASON CITY IOWA FRIDAY JANUARY 5 W2 HpME EDITION neig h bars v Paper Consists of Two SectionsSecUon On 77 Draft calls ces g hed Turbines next for motorists Multifuels successful By LEROY POPE NEW YORK UPDThe gaso line auto engine as we know i may be doomed to replacemen in the 1960s by gas turbines small diesels and multifue piston engines The small diese is starting to break into the taxicab and veri light truck field Chryslers decision to start token production of gas turbine passenger cars in 1963 may be followed soon by a Ford decision to turn out a car powered by a piston engine that will burn kerosene furnace oil or almost any fuel under a newly developec principle Ford has a production agree ment with Texaco which de veloped the multifuel engine and has been testing at for 10 years at its Beacon NY laboratories Texaco engineers admitted in December that the multifue engine is ready for production and claimed it will run a standard sixcylinder car more than 40 miles on a gallon of kerosene or oil The other companies and at least four top engineering schools State Georgia Tech Stanford and University ol Rochester are reported working on similar multifuel engine pro jects All of them represent attempts successful in Tex acos solve a problem that has intrigued internal com bustion engineers intermittently for over 60 years That problem was how to achieve the efficiency of the diesel engine without the diesels heavy weight and other dis advantages The crux of the prob lem was how to ignite low grade fuels with a spark plugTor glow plug the way gasoline is ignited without extreme high pressure and still get high efficiency in a piston engine The problem was partly solved years ago and kerosene piston engines were used for years on early farm tractors and trucks but theef ficiency was low The new principle used by Tex aco calls for shooting the low grade fuel directly at the spark plug or glow plug in a swirling manner This high concentration of the fuel around the ignition1 plug causes it to burn more com pletely than high octane gasoline will burn in todays engines j This mean high fuel economy very little exhaust fume no knock besides the advantage of being able to use almost any fuel and change from one fuel to an other The mixture injected into the cylinders of the new engine is only three parts fuel to 100 of air so lean that a spark plug would not ignite it in the cdiven tionally designed engine The new engine has no carb ureter but its fuel injection system costsmore than a carburetor If it used glow plugs instead of sparkplugs the costly and com plicated parts of the ignition system would be eliminated It weighs more than a conven tional engine and its acceleration may not be as rapid Another success for Minuteman CAPE CANAVERAL Fla W A Minuteman intercontinental range missile roared out of an underground pit Friday and suc cessfully hit a target 3600 miles down the

Sir District Court Indecent No it isnt England debates the twist LONDON UPI A London dancing school manager banned the new twist dance craze from his flftor because it is too sexy but others in the trade refused to follow suit Bernard Stetson manager of the London Dance Institute started the controversy over the shimmyandwiggle import from America The twist is far too uninhibi ted abandoned and frankly sexy to be performed inBritain he said It belongs to the African bush But his colleagues in the dance business rose up in arms If you are a sexy person it will come out sexy I suppose but so will the tango said Ma A Tampa refuses to allow it at city recreation centers TAMPA Fla city councilmen got all tangled up in the twist but when the show was it was a good gyrating dance fad was still taboo at city rec reation centers Councilman Bill Myers made a game try in a losing cause He even gave a demonstration in his efforts to sway the coun cilto overrule the recreation de partments ban on the twist Myers 45 a fellow of medium cavorted a few steps for the benefit of other councilmen Thursday and described the dance thusiy With one foot you make out like youre stamp ing out a cigarette At the same time you move both hands like you are drying your back with a towel Its like doing calisthenics except you stay on your feet But his exhibition and lecture failed to persuade enough of his council colleagues They upheld the recreation department ban by a 43 vote It isnt as bad as the black bottom and they didnt outlaw that Myers contended They used to do the Charleston in short skirts above the knees And besides anything as hard to learn as the twist they shouldnt outlaw it rielCartmell an attractive in struclor at the Arthur Murray School of Dancing The director of Mecca Ltd biggest ballroom chain in the world ruled out the idea of banning the twist Aslong as a dance does not threaten disturbances said Mec cas Eric Morley its perfectly that goes for the twist Fullyfledged men and wom en dont want the twist said Morley Its a dance for bored socialites who are tired of hold ing each other in their arms Teenagers dont really like it either he said Theres not enough leg mo

suggestive about the twist T certainly dont think it is vulgar she said Its its the way you do it However you do most British dont seem quite sure Londons nightclubs are jammed with people every night
