oad Automobile Changes,
pear in 1959 Models,
Mie. Chiang Honored
By DAVID J. WILKIE
Issociated Press Automotive Editor
Broad appearance changes are
ning in the 1959 model automo-
They were planned long before
e lag in new car sales began but
e industry hopes they will help
lster a sharp comeback next
Some cars will be longer; a few
L be lower. Others will have
at appearance due to changes
their lines. There will be dras-
changes in front and rear
There will be more color combi-
tions. Most radiator grilles will
changed. More glass will be
ed. More aluminum will go into
rictional use as well as in trim
Most of General Motors' various,
es will be entirely new because
its new body shell that re-
ices two of the three currently
ed. Chevrolet, which had a com-
etely restyled car this year, gets
other one for 1959 as a result
the body change.
A whole new car in two succes-
'e years is unusual in the indus-
Co Be Give
try. Ford, which topped Chevro-
let in production and sales last
year, has been ousted from that
position by Chevrolet this year.
In an effort to regain some of
its lost volume Ford is making
broad exterior design changes for(
Engineering changes will not
be nearly as extensive, although
there will be one new engine in
top Chrysler models and there will
be more pushbutton controls.
Tires on standard size cars will
remain at 15-inch and 14-inch di-
ameters. When the 14-inch wheels
were announced a couple of years
ago it was said there would be
further reduction to 13 inches.
So far no car maker has indi-
cated a 13-inch wheel is planned.
Lighting to Contribute
Over-all, the positioning of
front and rear lighting systems'
will contribute substantially to
the changed appearance of the
1959 models, More of the front,.
and rear lamps, positioned one
above the other, will be canted,
The rear fender fins that
sparked Chrysler's big showing in
1957 will be retained by all its
divisions for 1959 as will the
modified versions adopted by Ford
and Chevrolet. The outward flare
will be s o m ew h a t more pro-
nounced in the Ford models.
The Edsel car's gull-wing rear
lighting effect will be adopted,
with modifications, by several oth-
er makes. The Edsel will retain its
basic styling characteristics, in-
cluding the deep vettical oval in
in its front. .
Chrysler's several d i v i s o n s,
while retaining their basic styl-
ing, will strive for more individu-
ality through front and rear end
Pushbutton controls for heaters
and for locking and unlocking lug-
gage compartment lids without
leaving the cart will be innova-
tions in several lines.

The Ann Arbor Youth Chorus
will, no longer be a part of the
University's annual May Festival.
By action of the Ann Arbor
Board of Education early in June,
the chorus, made up of local
school children 10 to 12 years old,
will no longer be sponsored by the
Charles A. Sink, president of
the University Musical Society
which sponsors the May Festival,
expressed regrets at the board's
decision. "We are very sorry to
hear the board has taken this ac-
tion because the Youth Chorus
has been an important part of the
May Festival for many years,"
Prof. Marguerite Hood of the
School of Music, chorus director,
explained that the rehearsals for
the annual program frequently
took up half the school day which
"upsets the school program."
The elementary school princi-
pals objected to the chorus on
four grounds in a joint statement
presented to the board:
1) "Although the values of par-
ticipating in the Youth Chorus
are great for the children in-
volved, the educational cost in
other elements of their school
program also is very great."
2) As school population in-
creases, a smaller percentage of
children are able to participate in
3) Preparations for the per-
formance affect school life "and
bring undesirable consequences
for children in schools who are
not in the Youth Chorus."
4) In recent years the number
of schools in the city has in-
creased, making transportation to
rehearsals more difficult and time
The principals noted, however,
that the students in the chorus
received special musical instruc-
tion. School "Superintendent Jack
Elzay suggested that the Musical
Society independently develop a
Prof. Hood, who has directed
the group since 1943, said that
the chorus has contained "just
under 400 children" in recent
Gail W. Rector, director of the
M u a I c a 1 Society, termed the
Chorus' last performance in the
May Festival "a success."
Sink, Rector and Prof.' Hood
have been invited to a school
board meeting to discuss the prob-
lem. No date for the meeting has
been set yet, according to the Mu-
sical Society office.
