Trends In Auto

Worley Predicts Diesel
Oil-Burning Engines and
Stream-Lined Bodies
Deisel oil-burning e n g i n e s and
streamlined bodies will be the next
big step in automobile construction
according to John S. Worley, profes-
sor of transportation engineering,
curator of the transportation libra-
ry, and nationally known engineer,
who predicted that these improve-
ments are due in the very near fu-
ture. At the present time one auto-
mobile manufacturer has 3,000 Dei-
sel engine-equipped t r u c k s being
tested on the highways, Professor
Worley said in an interview yester-
Stimulated By Depression
Commenting on the numerous de-
velopments in the automobile indus-
try during the past year Professor
Worley stated that due to the in-
creased competition caused by the
depression, manufacturers had de-
parted from their usual custom of
making a few improvements on each
new model and this year had incor-
porated in their cars every new de-
vice on which they have been ex-
perimenting. Free wheeling, syn-
chronized gear shift; floating power,
twin tail lights, improved lacquer
methods, and other minor refine-
ments were given as examples.
Automobile prices are lower now
than at any other time, considering
the duality of the cars now on the
market, declared Professor Worley.
Major improvements in t-r u c k s
other than the Deisel engine may not
be expected at this time, Professor
Worley said in reply to a question.
He did say that balloon tires were
now replacing the hard rubber tires
that were formerly used. With bal-
loon tires, trucks probably do no
more harm to the highways than or-
dinary passenger cars, P r o f e s s o r
Worley said. In his opinion there
will soon be a law requiring the use
of balloon tires on motor trucks.

Daniel Forbes Zimmerman, local
banker, died Thursday night at his
home in Barton Hills at the age of
50 years. He had been in ill health
for nearly a year, he was but fifty
years of age. Mr. Zimmerman had
been active in financial circles for
some twenty years and has been as-
sociated with several local and out-
side firms. Rev. H. P. Marley will
deliver the funeral service tomor-
row in Forest Hill cemetery. The

Minnesota Campus
Trys New Council
Organizaton Plan
MINNEAPOLIS, Oct. 8.--Organi-
zation of a, student government
group to be known as the All-Uni-
versity Council of the University of
Minnesota has been announced by
the Student Judiciary Committee. A
one-year trial will be accorded the
new body, with a revision next sum-
mer in prospect if certain features
are found impractical
Throughout the school year, the
judiciary committee will invite criti-
cism, in order that the completed
version may incorporate all the most
desirable features of student gov-
The action of the committee is the
latest development in the fiery trail
of politics on the Minnesota campus,
which a year ago led to ballot-box
stealing, acid-throwing, and dissolu-
tion of the old student government
A novel feature of the embryo All-
University Council is the representa-
tion of the following campus bodies:
1. The individual schools and col-
leges of the University; 2. Groups of
s; hools and colleges of the Univer-
sity; 3. Special groups in the Uni-
versity; 4. Various student classes of
the University; 5. Administrative of-
ficials and faculty members; 6. Vari-
ous all-university extra-curricular
activities in the Univeritsy.
The president of the Council will
be elected by the entire student body.

sects, and fruits. He destroys enough
insect pests, Dr. Dearborn estimates,
to earn the one or two grouse he may
devour in a year.
Other animals included in the
study are the opossum, raccoon, red
fox, coyote, w ildcat, weasel, mink,
and badger.
Examination was made of more
than 3,000 specimens of the viscera
of these animals, collected during
July, August, and early September,
1930 and 1931, in the lower penin-
sula of Michigan. Stomachs of ani-
mals killed for their pelts or by au-
tomobiles or by other accidents were
also studied.

Business Gain
LOS ANGELES, Oct. 7--()-The
nation's bankers see a silver lining
in the clouds that have obscured the
sun of business prosperity for many
Led by their new president, Fran-
cis H. Sisson of New York, members
of the American Bankers Association
express the belief the worst of the
depression is over. The fifty-eighth
annual convention of the association
ended Thursday night.
"The advance that has taken place
in prices of stocks, bonds and com-
modities," Sisson said, "has spelled
genuine improvement from the bank-
ers' point of view, and even more re-
assuring is the disappearance of the
panicky spirit of a few months ago."
Describing taxation as the "assault
of society on the pocketbook of the
unforgotten man," Paul Shoup, vice
chairman of the Southern Pacific Co.
delivered the final address.
