Detroit Detour
June 04, 1962
Bloomfield Hills is an executives-only suburban community outside Detroit, and the good life there can be as stimulating as a high-horsepower race to the top of a rising auto-industry sales chart. But when the ladies of Bloomfield Hills want to get away from it all, they pull out of traffic into the local bowling alley. Here, as unconcerned with competitive markets as an assembly-line mechanic, are 1) Mrs. John French—he's general manager of Ford's Autolite division; 2) Mrs. Semon Knudsen—he's Chevrolet's general manager; 3) Mrs. George Walker—he's a retired Ford vice-president; and 4) Mrs. Dale Douglass—he's a Chevy plant manager.
