"Meat axe" approach to public transit

There are like 5 different articles on this one page of news from 1962 that are interesting if not directly relevant to the news today.  I'll just link to the most obvious one: Bus Cut Hearings Delayed

Anyone notice some of the other gems on that page.. including a proto-Skybus reference.

If you venture off to other pages, take a look at the 2/3 page ad on page 7.  We have to find the 20 minute movie referenced there.  Anyone have a clue?

No, but I like the "Carry Extra Head in Zippered Case" headline, accompanied by a small picture of a "coif carrier". Those were the days when you could get a good hour of reading out of the daily PG--today I'm lucky to get 15 minutes from the Sunday edition. But then again, Null Space was just a weekly insert in 1962, if I'm not mistaken.

1962 (50 years ago) - full page ads and more for Thorofare, Kroger, Acme, A&P, Giant Eagle ("get more, extra, free stamps"!) ... and the Blocks still at the top of the masthead.

I notice on the top front it brags: "Post-Gazette Sun-Telegraph LOCALLY OWNED LOCALLY EDITED"

So when exactly did the blocks pull up tents and move to South Detroit Ohio er I mean Toledo?
