ATTEND CHURCH SIRDAY =.rl m / I ) There's nothing like a new car--and no compact car like this de lux vair 700. r=- l ! I I _, I ! %, :!:i ~/,ii /ii: ii D m m Here's the car created to con- quer a new field--Chevrolet's low-priced compact Corvair. The product of nine years of research and development at the auto industry's most ad- vanced facilities, it's Ameri- ca's first truly compact, eco- nomical car that retains the ride and 6-passenger comfort you re used to in a big one. The key to this small miracle: America's first and only modern rear-mounted alumi- n um engine--a lightweight 6 that s so revolutionary it can .be. pa. ckaged with the trans- ramon and drive gears as one compact unit. By putting the engine in the rear, Chevrolet has made the floor practically, fiat, front and rear. There s plenty of foot room for every~)ody, in- cluding the passengers in the middle. Shifting engine weight to the rear also makes for smoother, easier compa~ct ~ handling and gives glued-to-the-road traction on ice, mud or snow. Corvair's size--some 5 inches lower, 2P/~ feet shorter and 1,300 pounds lighter than conventional sedan~--makes it a joy to jockey through busy ~ts, a pleasure to park (no need for power assists). Its revolutionary Turbo-Air 6 gets up to 30% more miles on & gallon of regular (a real magi "clan on mileage). And, beeaake the America's only car with an airplane' type horizontal engine! America's only car with independent suspen- sion at all 4 wheels! America's only car with an air-cooled aluminum engine ! The engine's in the rear where it belongs in a compact car! engine's air-cooled, you never have to fuss with antifreeze, you get quicker warmup with less wear on parts even on the coldest mornings (even heat for passengers comes quicker --almost instantly--from an airplane-type heater*). Yet, wonderfully practica_ 1 _as all this sounds, you li find the most practical thing of all about this new Corvair is its remarkably low price. Your dealer's the man to see for all the short, sweet details. ( RFVOLUTIONARY TuRmo-~IR S Gets up to 30 % more miles on a gallon, needs no antifreeze, provides quicker warup with less wear onparts. ONE-PACKAGE POWEIt TEAM Wraps rear engine, tran~ mission and differential together into one compact lightweight unit. Take~ leas room, leaves you more. STYLING--PURE AND SIMPLE Clean; uncluttered lines shape both 4-door models--the de luxe Corvair 700 and the standard Corvair. Each has its own dis- tinctive trim, and you get more visibility area than in many full-sized cars. FOLD-DOWN REAR SEAT* Works easily, instantly, adding to Corvair's versatility by enlarging rear seat cargo space to 17.6 cu. ft. FLAT FLOOR Corvair is America's only com- pact car with a practically fiat oor, the Only one with the kind of relaxing room that U.S. motorists are used to.

CHARLES TOWN, W. VA. PHONE 42 BY DONALD C. CARMAN State Tax Commissioner Our Gasoline Tax Division ~s doing a booming business ~these days. The division reports net collec- tic,ns of $3,142,663.41 for ,the mon- th of July. That compares wi, th re ceipts of only $2,489,465.31 for July of 1958-an increase of $653,- 198.19. Gasoline tax collections have been climbing steadily over the past six months. All of the funds go to the State Road Commission for use in cons,tructing and main ta.ining our ro~d system. One ce,nt per gal,lon of the on ey is earmarked for in~ter~ta,te mat ching funds, two-seven,ths for sec ondary roads .and the remainder for primary road purposes. This Increase re flee,Is a sub- stan tial boost in gasoline consu.m,p `tion in West Virginia. West Virginia's tax of seven ce,nts a gallon is collected from Vhe oil companies and is based on those firms' actual receipts. The gasoline ~s taxable when it ~it received .in `this state by the companies or when a s,tate refin- ery completes i~ts processing and the $uel is ready for use ~n a com- bustion engine. Our Gaso'Hne Tax Division re- cedves huge checks ,from the oil companies, mmny running into the hundreds of thousands of dollars. However, the tax is eventually )aid by West Virginia motorists when ~hey pull up ,to a gasoline pump. A Portion of the July increase must be a,t.tributed to ,a one-cent boost in t~he state's gasoline tax that wen,t ;in`to effect on April 1, 1959. However, t,he 26.2 per cent in- crease far outweighs ~the 14-plus per ce,nt hike tlhat would have re- sulted if gallonage had been the same as last year.
