From the observation* deck, the children were able to see the air­ planes take off and land They could also see the hostess greet the passengers as they boarded the planes. By watching the workers prepare an airplane for a flight, the children learned that much work must be done i n prep aration They saw the baggage truck place baggage aboard the planes. Mechanics were seen checking the motor and refueling the plane from the gasoline truck They alsc saw a worker giving signals to the pilot before the take off A great deal could also be ob served in the terminal waiting room. They noticed the passen gers buying their tickets and checking the huge blackboards for time schedules. When a plane is ready to leave, the passengers are notified by the voice over the loud speaker. In addition they also saw the baggage being weigh ed and sent on a conveyor to be picked up and taken to the bag­ gage trucks. Preparation for the trip in eluded a discussion and a written list of what they hoped to see Following the trip, the children discussed what they had learned Then they drew pictures and wrote stories of their trip.

BEST BRAKES... In direct com­ petitive tests of repeated stops from highway speeds, conducted by NAS­ CAR*, Chevy out-stopped both the other leading low-priced cars—and why not: Chevy brakes are far larger, built with bonded linings for up to 66% longer life. BEST TRADE-IN ... Check the figures in any N-A..D .A.t Guide Book. You'll find that Chevy used car prices last year averaged up to $128 higher than comparable models of the \other two.\ BEST STYLE Popular Science magazine sums it 'National AMociation for Stock Car Advancement and Ba&tarck tAutomobB* VaMKfoctwer* Asiociation up: \The fact is, in its price class the Chevy establishes a new high in daring styling . . .\ It's the only car of the leading low-priced three that's un­ mistakably modern in every line. BEST ECONOMY ... No doubt about this: two Chevrolet Sixes won their class in the famous Mobilgas Economy Run, got the best mileage of any full-size car. BEST ROOM . . . Official dimensions reported to A.M.A4 make this clear. For example, Chevy front seat hip room is up to 6.9 inches wider than comparable cars. BEST ENGINE . . . Every motor magazine has given Chevy's standard and Corvette V8's unstinted praise. As Sports Cars Illustrated puts it: \Indeed this device is surely the most wonder­ fully responsive engine available today at any price.\ BEST RIDE . . . You'll be able to tell this yourself, instantly. But Motor Trend mag­ azine expresses it this way: \. .. the smoothest, most i quiet, softest rid- | ing car in its price class.\ ^National Automobile D«Irri Auociation Make sure you get the most for your money—see your local authorized Chevrolet dealer! West Main Street SUGG CHEVROLET Arcade Phone 344 In all our concern about the capabilities of the Soviet Union following its launching of the first earth satellite, we have made a closer study of the Soviet institu­ tions and systems than ever was done before The results of these studies have brought a clearer picture of the Soviet's strengths and weaknesses and permit a much more reasonable comparison of our two countries than was pos­ sible during the emotional period which followed the first Sputnik launching. Then, the scientific and military significance of this achievement was coloring our appraisal of Soviet achievements in all fields. While long ex­ perience had taught us to be skep­ tical of all Soviet boasts, the fact of the Sputniks suddenly found many persons ready to accept completely all of these boasts. One prime example was the field of industrial and agriculture production. Announcement of a new Seven-Year Plan and claims of surpassing the USA gave wide currency to the impression that Soviet Union was overtaking us as a producing nation. Nowhere are these comparisons more important than in our mili­ tary departments where our plan­ ning must take into account an opponent's capabilities. \Never underestimate the enemy\ is a military maxim, and knowing the foe is a basic requirement Therefore, a report on the economic aspects of the Soviet threat to our national security pre­ pared by the Department of De­ fense recently for the Defense Appropriations Sub-committee on which I serve has special mean­ ing and significance As the re­ port said in its opening statement An understanding of the present status and future development of the Soviet economy, as well as the problems being encountered by the Soviets is important not only from a purely economic view­ point, but is also fundamental to an evaluation of potential mili tary manpower \ The reports abrupt conclusion was that the Soviet Union has made real progress in developing its economy, but the United States still is far ahead of the USSR in economic development \This is true by almost any measure of economic strength.\ the report said These are some of the compari­ sons which it pointed out The Gross National Product of the United States is about two and one-half times that if Russia, steel production capacity of Russia is 55 million tons annually, ours is 133 million tons, Russia's pro­ duction of electric power was 233 killowatt hours last year to our 724 billion, we made 12.6 million radio sets last year, Russia made 4 million. Comparison of standards of liv­ ing remains even more unfavor­ able for the Soviets. In housing, there is 60 square feet—a 6x10 room—available for each Russian, compared tp 340 square feet for an average American. A hlghpaid steelworker in Russia must work 300 hours to buy a suit of clothes and two years to earn the price of low-cost car. Turning to the Soviet's widely heralded new Seven Year Plan, the report agreed it represented I a big forward step, if carried out. Few previous plans have been | achieved. But even if every goal is met, in many important areas the Soviet economic capacity in 1965 would be significantly be­ low that of the United States for 1957 In fields like steel, petrol­ eum, chemicals, and electric power, Russia would still trail. Much has been made of per­ centage gains in placing the Sov­ iets in a more favorable position than ours. But this provides a false picture because we are so far ahead to begin with. As an example, the steel production ca­ pacity of Russia was about 30 percent of the USA in 1950. By 1965, they plan t o have 52 percent of our capacity But even if they reach that goal, our absolute mar­ gin will have increased in 1950 we had 64 million tons more ca­ pacity, in 1965 we would have 83 million tons more. Some of the growing difficulties •which the Soviet Union is en­ countering as its economy grows provide a very significant lesson for this country. In trying to direct centrally the Nation's en­ tire economy, tremendous \foul- ups\ occur According to the re­ port, the Soviet Finance Minister admitted recently that 109 oil wells ready for production could not be operated because pipelines were not available. Bricks for a major construction project were shipped 1000 miles' at a cost which •was twice the cost of the bricks. Too much time is spent in paper work, not enough on pro­ duction, is another complaint which Khuschchev had made time and time again. He has also complained that on state farms where all the machinery is sup­ plied free by the government, things run, much less efficiently than in operations where the ma­ chinery must be paid for These things are not news to the supporters of free enterprise system in our country, but they should provoke doubts for those who urge that the Federal Gov­ ernment step into more and more areas. This Teport, of course, provides little ground to downgrade the Soviet Union, militarily They are turning a very large propor­ tion of their productive capacity to military purposes. But it does help to set the record straight in one important area of the cold war competition. Convenience foods may actually save you money A Cornell home economics study reveals that while many such items (foods that are pre-sliced, pre-diced, boned, can­ ned, skinned, etc ) cost more than their home-made counterparts, others costs less and some are the same price.
