AGE RECREATED New England Tour In An cient Cars Revive Past BOSTON (U.R)—'The age of the “horseless carriage” will be re created this fall in a six-day tour of New England by 100 antique automobiles. . _+ W. Nelson Bump, vice-president of the American Airlines and chairman of the Veteran Motor Car Club of America, described ths iaunt as an attempt to re capture the “spirit and adventure of a period when long-distance motoring was a daring sport.” With the revival of the so-called Glidden Tour, Bump doubted that +he participants this year will be bothered by one of the most com mon hazards in the early days— arrest for speeding. _ . All cars participating ffi the sweep of New England will be at least 32 years old and while they might have been "speedsters’’ in their time, their present pace is a crawl. Back To 1905 The first tour—33 auiomounes— left New York City in *905 and braved mud ruts, motor break downs derision and constables on their way to the White Mountains. In those days, one New Hamp shire town arranged an elaborate speed trap. Constables in plam clothing occupied positions along a measured route with stop watches in hand, and signalled to one an other with handkerchiefs. Ropes tied to telegraph poles -were ready to be stretched .across the road should one of the cars get up to 20 miles an hour. Despite that and mechanical troubles, the magazine “Horseless Age” decided the tour proved the automobile “almost fool-proof . . . strengthening our belief in the permanence of the motor car, but the Manchester (N. H) Union thought the whole thing an “un mitigated nuisance.” Speed Was Menace “The lives and property of per fectly helpless people have been menaced for no other reason than to provide amusement for total strangers,” it said editorially. “Automobiles are a good thing; aome drivers can be trusted but most cannot. . . . Take the record of their run from Concord to Man chester, 18 miles in 40 minutes. Have they any right to do such a thing? ... We like automobiles, and hope they have come to stay, but to turn loose a lot of crazy mountebanks intent on making a record over our roads is a distinct - outrage ...” A side trip will be made to Mount Washington, which first was climbed in 1899 by a Stanley Steamer in two hours. The present ' record is slightly over 12 minutes. 0. S. Making More Atomic Bombs, Says Sen. McMahon | WASHINGTON, Sept. 2. — (A5) —Senator McMahon (D-Conn) said tonight the United States is mak ing more atomic bombs because Russia has not agreed to Ameri can proposals for their control. “That those proposals were right and decent and just,” he asserted, "is testified to by the fact that every nation except Rus sia has supported them.” McMahon, co-author of the act for domestic control of atomic energy, was the last of eight speak ers during a half-hour radio rally staged by the Democratic party as a warm-up for the 1948 cam paign. The other orators assailed the Republican-controlled congress for its attitude toward labor, prices, farm programs, and housing. Gael Sullivan, executive director of the democratic national committee, was moderator. Speeches from New York, Cali fornia, Minnesota, Alabama, Indi ana, Pennsylvania, and Washing ton, D. C. were scheduled. Party members gathered in meetings over the country to hear the (ABC) broadcast and to discuss the is sues raised during what was call ed the “first national meeting of a political party to be conducted over the air.” Asserting that control of atomic energy, domestically and interna tionally, lies at the very heart of world peace, McMahon said: marting jrrugie»» "We are making real progress in the achievement of ever greater superiority in atomic energy pro duction, including the making of atomic bombs — bombs, inciden tally, which we wish we did not have to continue to make—bombs which we would not be making if the American proposals for inter national control had been agreed to by Russia. McMahon added that because of Russia’s stand on atomic con trols and evidence that she is “pursuing an aggressive and ex pansionist policy on every front.” the United States has “become unified in our determination that Russia shall not either by intri gue or by force accomplish the domination of Europe and Asia.” He predicted that if Western Eu rope fulfills its obligation under the Marshall plan of aiding those countries that help themselves the people of America “will be behind this administration, regard less of party, in the measures necessary to make the plan a suc cess.” He said he is confident thi* country will "surmount out diffi culties and lead the world into more pleasant and safer seas.” Mayor William O’Dwyer of New York City, who spoke first, said the working people of New York are "angry” because the Repub lican congress “tried to turn the working people of the country into second-class citizens.” He contrasted the lot of the work ing man in the days of “Hoover villes and apple peddlers on every corner” with what he called, ‘‘hap pier times” under Franklin D. Roosevelt and added: ‘‘The working people of my town are not going to let the Republi cans turn the clock back. They will instead follow President Tin man’s leadership forward to world peace and domestic prosperity.” Rep Helen Gahagan Douglas, speaking from Los Angeles, said the GOP “cannot understand the problems of 95 percent of Ameri ca’s housewives.” ‘‘In answer to their desperate plea for help,” she asserted, “the party of big business—the friends of the real estate lobby—has cyni cally set up investigating commit tees in congress to see if prices really are too high and whether there actually is a housing short age. This, of course, after they had just destroyed rent control, the veterans’ housing program, and taken all restrictions off in stallment buying.” Mayor Hubert Humphrey of Minneapolis denounced the Re publican party for slashing appro priations for rural electrification, soil conservation, agricultural re search, and the farmers’ home ad ministration. He said the national policy of aid to the small farmer “has been threatened and set back by poli tical partisanship” and that "east ern Republicans, mostly represent atives of absentee landlords” are now making the nation’s farm pol icy.” Senator Sparkman of Alabama, told the rally that the Republican record on housing "is consistent— consistently bad. They have done nothing. Absolutely nothing to help get homes for veterans.” He said the veterans with whom he has talked "intend to take congress away from the real estate lobby in 1948 and return it to the people.” Sullivan, who spoke twice dur ing the rally, said the people “are sick of the stumbling and bumb ling of the Republican-controlled congress.” Then, after declaring the “whole world watches our every move,” he went on to say; “Some watch us hopefully, pray ing that we maintain our thrength and that we share it to breath the spark of life into war-shattered countries. Others watch us with hostile eyes, hoping that our econ omic machinery will break down, hoping that we will find ourselves too weak to aid others.” The latter he described as the “scavengers, waiting for us to move out so that they can move in and impose totalitarian police states over peoples who are now free.” Senator Francis J. Myers of i Pennsylvania said the people of Poor Rudolf Stops Airplane Propeller FRANKFORT, Ky„—OJ.PJ—Acci dents will happen, and Rudolph whoever he is, has “nothing seri ous,” only a dislocated knee cap as a result of an aircraft accident at one of Kentucky’s landing fields. Technical adviser Gerald O’Brien of the Kentucky Aeronautics Com mission received the following re port of an accident: “Dear Sir: Rudolph was pro pelling plane with student in plane after calling for switchoff Rudolph pulled propeller through and motor started as switch was not off and propeller hit Rudolph on knee and knocked kneecap out of socket but no bones were broken, but broke end off propeller. Nothing serious. Rudolph will be off as instructor for a few days.” O’Brien would not reveal the name of field and did not have Rudolph’s last name. his state "share the disgust felt by all liberal-minded, fair-minded Americans,” over Republican poli cies, approve the policies of the democratic administration, and think Mr. Truman should run in 1948. Marshall Hanley, president of the Young Democratic clubs of Indiana, told how young people in the party are working in ward and precinct to bring a democratic victory next year. Puerto Rico was discovered by Christopher Columbus on his sec ond voyage in 1493. Get Welcome Relief From Stomach Gas, Sour Food Taste Do you feel bloated and miserable after every meal?
