Turbine Car

CHICAGO, Ill.-Anthony "An-

States Auto Club virtually has ap-
proved his controversial turbine
race car.,
The president of Studebaker's
STP Division said in a statement
last night that a decision to refer
the question of the engine's power

experts "is tantamount to ap-

Both Thomas W. Binford, USAC
president, and Henry Banks, the
club's director of competition,
agreed it was unlikely the turbine
would be banned.
Protests against the powerful
turbine 'mounted even before Par-
nelli Jones ran away from the
field in the Indianapolis 500-mile
race May 31.
Opponents said the turbine
represented not an improvement
of the breed of racing engines but
a new breed. They agreed it should
race, but with other turbines and
not piston-engines machines that
have been a standard for decades.
USAC's call to turbine experts
came after a two-day post-500
evaluation by its rules committee.
The experts' ratings will be con-
sidered by club directors June 26.
Binford and Banks said the
formula, under which Granatelli
built his car in three years, was
not arrived at by acident. They
said aircraft engineers and tur-
bine specialists were consulted.

MEXICO CITY - Construction
work has now started on all pro-
jects for the 1968 Olympic Games
and the men who head the Mexi-
can Organizing Committee remain
confident everything will be ready
when competition starts Oct. 12.
The last Olympic construction
to get started was the cycling
velodrome and ground recently
was broken for it. The Olympic
village, the sports palace, the row-
ing and canoeing canal, the swim-
ming pool and yachtingefacilities
in Acapulco already were under
construction. The expansion of
University Stadium, the main sta-
dium for the Games, is reported
on schedule.
Mexico is spending about $70
million for the Games.aThis in-
cludes construction, expansion of
existing facilities and all other
costs involved in presenting the
games. The cost is a good bit lower
than the cost of the Games in
Toyo or Rome.
Tk organizing committee gets
its first really big test this October
during the third international
sports week.
Estimates from the committee
now are that perhaps as many as
40 nations will send teams to the
Little Olympic competition.
Some of tl Olympic construc-
tion will not be finished then but
much of it will be ready for use.
The competition is to include
every Olympic event but weight-
lifting and soccer and there is a
possibility weightlifting might he

Hallowed tradition
of "pinning" a girl is
up-dated by
Sprite bottle caps.
According to an independent survey (we took it
ourselves), a startling new practice is becoming
widespread on some college campuses.
Suddenly, fraternity men are no longer "pinning"
the lovely young things that catch their eye.
Instead, they reach for a bottle of tart,
tingling Sprite--and proceed to "cap"
f the object of their affections.
Why has this
come about?
SPerhaps because
of what happens
-low when you go
through the ceremony of opening a bottle of Sprite.
It fizzes! Roars! Buzzes! Tingles! Bubbles!
All of which makes for a much more moving moment
than to simply "pin" a girl.
Then, too, the intimacy of two people engaged
in the act of opening a bottle of Sprite in itself
leads to strong emotional involvement.
Capped off, of course, by the sharing of a
few moments of delicious abandon. (Tasting the
tingling tartness of Sprite, that is.)
The beauty of the idea is that if the course
of true love does not run smooth, you don't have
to go to the trouble of getting back your pin.
You just buy another bottle of Sprite.
