This personal "preview" car peeks into the future with new features that designer claims public will soon demand. WHAT kind of car will you be driv-ing five to 15 years from now and what features will you, the buyer, demand?

Will Interlingua Smash the Language Barrier?
This universal language would destroy our modern Tower of Babel, a bottleneck for men seeking world peace. By O. O. Binder SCIENTIA salta le barrieras de lingua. Puzzling words? But look them over a moment—don't they seem familiar, as if you almost knew the meaning? Well, you do! If you know Spanish, French or any Romance language, you will have little trouble reading it at first glance. But assume you're the typical non-linguist who knows only English, outside of gesundeit, parlez-vous, and some choice swear-words in Kurdu you got from a sailor. Look that phrase over again.

An eyewitness report on the fate of German scientists enslaved behind the Iron Curtain. By Dr. Otto Maar FOR six months we have been imprisoned in the Bautzen detention camp—the first six months of a 25-year sentence to which we were condemned by a Soviet Military Court for supposed espionage and "anti-Soviet propaganda." We squat all day on our bunks, because the cell is so small that we cannot move around in it. One begins to run out of conversation after half a year and the only break comes at meal- times. It is an advantage to have studied physics and mathematics; you find many problems to ponder and in the seclusion of a cell it is easier to think out many of these than when free. But it is tiresome to solve differential equations in your head. A kingdom for a scrap of paper and a pencil!
