THE FOREIGN INFLUENCE

Big Three Builders Play Waiting
Game On Small Autombiles
In tbe nation's auto capital, the
atmosphere is like Western fast :
guns circling, coming closer and !
closer, hands poised above hoLslers.
Each of the Big Three is warily
watching the other two. One loses
his nerve, thinks the other is draw
ing ? and draws. Then the other
draws, too. That's the only way
there'll be a Big Three small cur

None of the three ? Ford, Chry

"past the point of no return." But
they're getting awfully close. Tliey
could still stop. They want to stop.
But they probably won't.
There's a good chance, however,
that if the small cars do come,
they won't be ready by fall. With
the bugs to overcome, sometime iu
I960 is more likely.
All three have approved designs.
They've made clay mockups or
their equivalents, decided on styl
ing, tentatively located assembly
lines. Each has spent perhaps up
to 10 million dollars on preparations
for a small car. But they're still
reluctant to make the final plunge.
If they do, Detroit's new small
car will have the "new" European
small car look with a definite Amer
ican twist. It will sell, delivered,
for about $2,000.

will have styles all their own. the

the arguments of some of their de
signers, they may also put out

Why the reluctance to draw and
shoot for the small car market
when foreiga cars are selling and

All the Big Three have foreign
small cars now. Ford handles its
British - built Anglia-Consul-Zephyr
and German-built Taunus. GM of
fers its British-built Vauxhall and
German-built Opel. Chrysler has the
I French Simca. All are doing well.
No one in Detroit believes a small
car would be very profitable. A
small car costs almost as much to
build in the U.S. as a big one. And
a small car, if successful, would
cut into the market for bigger cars.
It's on those "extra" sales ? the
cars sold over and above the mini

that Detroit makes the most mon
The big enigma for the Big Three
Right now their cheapest models
compare favorably in price with
the small European cars, yet most
customers end up buying a better
model or a lot of extras, therefore
paying a bigger price.

don't they?" asks one puzzled com

LOVE TO OOD
Let me first call your attention
to the scripture found in 1st John
4.1*. "We love Him. because He
first loved us."
Things are always safe and happy
when we put God in His right
place as a Father, abd as such tak
eing the initiative of everything
is love. The first love of God dates
itself far away in the distance,
long before baptism. For whatever
is first to other things, "the love
of God" is first to it. As great and
sacred ta us as is Baptism God's
love is first. There is no good thing
for us that was not a thought of
love In the mind of God for us.
Many things that we cannot see
as goodness and love of the eternal
God in this life, will someday un
fold themselves as blessings from
Him. Much of God's love comes
cloaked in the blank ness of sorrow.
If we have tasted something of
the love of God, It began by God.
in the sovereignty of His loving
heart, choosing us. The history of
the soul saved is the annals of
God's love. I am a Christian today
because God loved a wretched, lost,
undone ana doomed sinner and
lifted me out of the pitfalls of the
terribleness of distraction.
Thanks be unto God for such a
wonderful rock to stand on. "God
There is always an inclination
to love some one who loves us. God
loved us while we were yet sinners
and showed no love for Him. When
ever God's love is really awakened
and brought home to our hearts it
arouses our conscience to heaven
We may have a general sense
of the love of God but we never
really do love God until we are
sure that God specially and indiv
idually loves us.
This feeling cannot be produc
ed by any reasoning but only by
the Holy Spirit's entrance into the
heart. He shows that love of God
in its highest actings forgives and
blots out our sin bringing salva
tion to our hearts therefore prod
ucing a never ending and unwav
ering love for God.
The love of God has shone into
the believers heart and must re
fleet itself. This reflection is that'
soul's love to God. to the Church i
and to every creature. j
In seeing that God loved us so
much that he gave his own son for'
us on calvary as mentioned in the i
3rd chapter of the Gospel John,
it behooves us to love Him sflpre-'
mely with all of our hearts and -
show it by obedience.
Let us love Him who first loved
