    Background: MOTORISED SURFBOARDS...POWER GOLF ON A MINIATURE COURSE...MOVEABLE SCAFFOLDS FOR HOUSE PAINTERS...THESE ARE JUST A FEW OF THE HUNDREDS OF NEW AND FASCINATING EXHIBITS NOW ON SHOW AT NEW YORK'S SECOND ANNUAL INVENTORS' AND NEW PRODUCTS EXHIBITION.

    THE EXHIBITION OPENED ON SATURDAY (10 SEPTEMBER) AND LASTS FOR TEN DAYS. ONE OF THE INVENTIONS IS AN ELECTRICALLY-POWERED CAR THAT CAN DRIVE ON ROADS TO A RAILWAY LINE, THEN MOUNT THE LINE AND USE THE ELECTRICITY FOR POWER WHILE THE DRIVER RELAXES.

    ANOTHER INVENTION IS A MOVEABLE SCAFFOLD THAT A HOUSE PAINTER, FOR INSTANCE, CAN MOVE FROM ONE AREA TO ANOTHER WITHOUT FIRST CLIMBING DOWN.

    FOR THE SPORTSMAN THERE ARE A MINIATURE GOLF COURSE, 100-TIMES SMALLER THAN THE NORMAL ON WHICH TINY, SPRING-ACTIONS CLUBS ARE USED, AND -- AN ITALIAN INVENTION -- A ONE-MAN MOTORISED SURFBOARD.

    THE INVENTORS' SHOW IS THE IDEA OF A 26-YEAR OLD EGYPTIAN, ROGER SHASHOUA, WHO WENT TO THE UNITED STATES IN 1957 TO STUDY BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION. HE NOW HEADS A COMPANY WITH TWELVE SUBSIDIARIES IN THE UNITED STATES AN AS MANY OTHERS ABROAD.
