Westchester Airport, Tree Talk A long range shade tree goal— 1 to keep green the changing face of America and purify exhaust fume laden air—is being proposed by forward-looking Dr. F. A. Bart- lett of the Bartlett Tree Experts. Just as President Eisenhower called for fixing stirring moral intellectual and economic goals for the nation's exploding popula­ tion 5-10 years hence, so Dr. Bart­ lett suggests planning for more and better trees to live with to­ morrow. This is wliat's happening now: Population flows like lava from cities into suburbs. Old suburbs change character; new ones are created. Out growth pushes into the countrysides with shopping centers, new homes, new roads, factories and businesses Shade tree after shade tree comes down under the bulldozer. Often dwarf-growing ones are plan­ ted as replacements. Older trees ADVERTISEMENT ADVERTISEMENT Asthma Formula Prescribed Most By Doctors-Available ii Now Without Prescription Stops Attacks in Minutes..• Relief Lasts for Hours! struggle against mounting odds to live. \What' Dr. Bartlett asks, \will be the character of the suburbs by 1970, 1975. \Where will be the original lures of summer shade and tree-provided winter shields? Will all trees be tiny things with no character of tallness, of venerable beauty, of matured age? \What will the air be like? What of the bird population, and the whole plant environment that de­ pends on relationship with trees?\ Concerned, Dr. Bartlett offers thii approach for communities and home owners: 1. Preserve the existing valued specimen trees in new and old de­ velopments. 2. Recognize that there must be a certain amount of tree mortality as suburbs multiply. But educate America to the need for plan? proper replacements. 3. Plant two trees for every one that dies. 4. Plant native trees, mixing tall trees with trees of lesser sta­ ture to break the monotony of the landscape. Don't plant trees* all of one species on home grounds or in a community. 5. Give all trees the best of care. Heglect can blight a streetful of trees as surely as it can deterio­ rate a community of homes; El*\* jhw York, K. Y.

Do you back in? Crawl in? Fall in? It's hard to tell which. But Mercury has the right remedy: door openings are 6 inches wider. There's up to 2 inches more head Clearance.. You step in easily.without a twinge. BACK-SEAT BOUNCE The only cushion­ ing many '59 cars could squeeze in over their high floor hump is a layer of spring and a jute pad. But Mercury's lowered hump made space for full cushioning. PROBLEMS YOU'LL HAVE TO LIVE WITH IN EVERY NEW CAR EXCEPT MERCURY CLOSE-TOGETHERNESS. Other '59 cars make friendships too close. But Mercury moved the dashboard for­ ward for 9* more knee room. There's more leg room, more elbow room_ more usable room all around. D00R-1TIS OF THE KNEE. Other '59 cars have jutting windshield posts that threaten to de-cap your knees! But Mercury moved that windshield post forward 2 inches. It's easy to step in without hitting your knee. STORMY-WEATHER TWITCH. Wipers in other cars do not clear the center of the wind­ shield, so you have to peek through 2 fan- shaped sections. But Mercury's wipers have an overlapping pattera_clear a five- foot swath_including the center. You drive relaxed in all kinds of weather. MIDDLE-MAN CROUCH. That hump in the floor of other '59 cars is now larger than ever. It makes the man in the middle sit with his knees at his chin. But Mercury cut the hump in half! Now the middle man has room to stretch out. 20 th ANNIVERSARY '59 MERCURY BUILT TO LEAD-BUILT TO LAST STAR TIRE & MOTOR CO., INC. 528 E. MAIN ST. Mpiihf Kisco 6^jj| . .' --'r>-- ,
