One of the significant signs
of these times is our emphasis
on the very things that heighten
our tenseness, our anrieties and
national and personal strains.
Our literature is surfeited with
material that is the antithesis of
the ideally tranquil way of life.
The radio and TV and movies

1 Pontiac trims side overhang
to give you a new Wide-Track... greater stability
Notice that the sleek lines of the body
are closer than ever to track width.
We've trimmed side overhang. Every
inch and ounce of this '6l Pontiac
travels with steadier footing.
The change is also noticeable inside.
We've increased seat height and allowed
more headroom, legroom and footroom.

A TRIBUTE TO
OUR MAYOR AND CITY COUNCIL
So smoothly clo the wheels of our local Govern
ment roll day after day, that little heed is paid
to the highly efficient “machinery” which runs
the departments of our civic organizations.
But there’s a veritable “dynamo” of power and
precision behind all this efficiency of our City
Government . . . it's the combined energy, sin
cerity and alertness of our Mayor and City
Council! Elected by our citizens because they
have the essential civic qualifications, these
men devote their time to the better manage
ment of our City, always striving to improve
conditions through which all of us will benefit
individually and collectively. We salute our
fine Mayor and City Council and accord them
the praise they so richly deserve.
