Chevy's new torsion springs and Sturdi-Bilt design
are changing everybody's ideas about how much
work a truck can do. Last year's schedules are
out-Chevrolet trucks ride faster over the rough
runs to get in more trips a day! Big repair bills
are no longer a problem-Chevrolet trucks soak
up punishment that means downtime to other
makes! And trade-in time's put off for extra
thousands of miles-'60 Chevrolet trucks stay
new like never before!
New Dollar-Saving Prices
Step-Vans, 4-Wheel Drives, many
light-duty models with automatic
transmissions-all are lower
priced. Prices have also been
reduced on all optional V8's.
New Torsion-Spring Suspension
Eliminates I-beam shimmy and
wheel fight! With torsion
springs up front there's a
brand-new, smoother, easier
handling feel behind the wheel.
New rear suspensions include
wide-based coil springs in most
light-duty models; tougher
variable-rate leaf springs in
medium- and heavy-duty models.
Electronically Balanced Wheels
Front wheels and tires are bal-
anced at the factory. Helps make
that new ride revolutionary!

RESTORING LIFE BY
Since prehistoric time, one of
the obvious signs of death has
been the stoppage of breathing.
The restoration of breathing-
and therefore the prevention of
death by asphyxiation-is called
Until recent years, attempts
at resuscitation have been made
largely by artificial respiration.
Today, however, the heart beat
is receiving attention as the
prime indicator of death. Even
when the heart has stopped
beating, life is being restored
in many persons through mas-
sage of the heart.
.The first successful restora-
tion of-the heart beat by cardiac
massage was accomplished in
experimental animals as long
ago as 1874. In 1902, the first
human whose heart had stopped
beating was revived by massage.
Two years later, a girl whose
heart apparently had stopped
during brain surgery was
brought back to life by mas-
sage. In 1926, Doctor Chevalier
Jackson successfully resuscitated
by heart massage a man who
suffered cardiac arrest during
In operating rooms heart mas-
sage has been accepted as a basic
technique for resuscitation when
death seems apparent. Artificial
respiration is not overlooked in
these cases. In fact, the term
cardiorespiratory resuscitation is
used to mean a combination of
restoring the heart beat and the
Although there have been
widely reported cases of emer-
gency on-the-spot heart mas-
sages, most cases of cardiac
resuscitation occur in the opera-
ting room where equipment and
trained personnel for heart mas-
sage and assisted respiration are
immediately available. Time is
of the essence in cases of car-

STax Bill Makes
Floridians dug deep in their pock-
ets to pay a tax bill of $2,367,225,-
000 during the past fiscal year to
federal, state and local govern-
ments, the Florida State Chamber
of Commerce said this week.
Indications point to a five per
cent increase during the current
year which ends in mid-1960, the
State Chamber added.
Making up a tax bill last year
were federal collections of $1,147,-
281,000 and an estimated amount of
$275 million in "hidden" federal
taxes; state collections amounting p
to $521,944,000; county collections
of some $235 million and the muni-
cipal "take" of $188 million
Over the five-year period, 1954-
1959, federal taxes gained 53 per
cent; state taxes were up 63 per
cent and county and municipal
tixes increased 58 per cent.
Last year's total divides ou. to
$524 for every resident of Florida,
.nen, women and children. This.
amount is 19 per cent more than
the per capital tax ,paid five years

A nylon tire of revolutionary e-
sign that delivers fully 25% more
mileage than conventional tires
has just been announced by the
Gates Rubber Company. The "low
profile" tire, Gates 1960 air-float
deluxe, is now being displayed by
the Pate-Thomaaon Service Center.
Frank Pate, manager of the store
gives three reasons for the increas-
ed mileage of Gates new tire: (1)
Lower, wider shape, which reduces
excessive sidewall flexing, allow-
ing the tire to run cooler while it
reduces treat scuffing and heat
burnup; (2) Use of a new tread de-
pgu that puts more rubber on the
road; and (3) 100% Cold rubber
tread, the longest-wearing rubber
compound known to mod er n
The longer mileage possible with

Pate, is strictly a bonus for motor-

"This means less power lost in

Another feature of interest is the
unusual guarantee offered by Gates
on the tire. "It has no time or mile-
