An argument to show his belief
tliat the vogue of tlie six cylinder
type of car will yield to the four
cylhuler in this country, as it has
in Europe, is made by V. A. Lesser,
general manager for the F. I.
Stearns Company of New York. The
Stearns is made in both four and
six cylinder models but Mr. Lesser
pays he feels that the higher cost of
upkeep is bound to operate against
the six, especially now that gasoline
is advancing so much in price and
the quality of the fuel is going
back, lie predicts a switch back to
general use of the four in eighteen
months at the outside. That this is
not the idea of all manufacturers or
dealers by a great deal can be seen
by the production schedules of
many other makers.
Mr. Lesser says that in its return
to fours, America will be following,
as always, Europe's example. lie says
that the four was supplanted for a
time by the six there, but that the
last Olympia show, where sixes were
in a minority noticeably small, was
an index of the situatfon there.
"Now, add to this fact that gaso
line is soaring steadily in price with ! fust as the governor would allow,
"by actual calculation we have as
certained thiit overJO per cent of
the new buyers of Simplex cars
have already owned six cylinder
cars of various makes. We have
never built 'sixes' Frequently we
are asked if we contemplate build
ing a six cylinder model, and we
always reply emphatically, "No!"
Some of the the best features of the
cylinder motor are not practicable
in the 'six,' and we do not intend
to start experimenting with the
'half dozen cylinder' style and take
a chance of producing an efficient
motor when we have a satisfactory
piece of mechanism in our four
l'rake tessts made Wednesday
morning on a number of Packard
trucks in actual use demonstrate
that with a properly proportioned
area ami an automatic governor to
control the speech of the motor,
street accidents in which motor
trucks figure, can be reduced to a

higher prices even now in sight,"
he says. "It is a well-known fact
that the gasoline consumption of a
six cylinder car is excessive, even
under the best conditions. To this
excessive consumption add the fact
gasoline is steadily becoming poorer
in quality and certainly will not
"Motorists are continually asking
for greater efficiency in their cars,
for more mileage to the dollar.
This of itself should doom the po
pularity of the six. However, I do
not mean that the six will be drop
ped altogether, for it will be used
always by a certain class."
An opinion to the same end is
that of John G. Dale of the Simplex
Automobile Company "It is in
teresting to note in connection with
the four cylinder versus the six
cylinder question," says Mr. Dale,
was stopped in a space of nine feet.
These tests show the control which
can be exerted by drivers of Packard
trucks in avoiding accidents.
With the Packard's automatic
governor, the maximum speed of
the vehicle is definitely fixed by its
owner. With such control it is
impossible for venturesome drivers
to risk the lives of pedestrians and
endanger other traffic by assuming
a speed sufficient to prevent imme
diate control - of the truck when
conditions call for quick use of the
The tests furnish conclusive proof
that, with the brakes in good con
dition the combination of the gover
nor with the large braking area of
the Packard trucks, the chance of
accident even in the most crowded
thoroughfares, is practically negli
gible so far as the truck is concerned

Ifirdmen are the most consistent
worshipers at the shrine of Goddess
Luck. Their very calling puts
them in more than passiug touch
with fate, and they are firm believ
ers in the power of charms or mas
cots. The cleverer the pilot the
more the luck-bringing emblems he
seems to possess. Vedrines, the
crack French flyer, always has a
miniature of the famous picture
Mona Lisa'' fastened to the side of
his aeroplane when he starts on a
flight. lie carried this picture on
his racing monoplane recently when
he won the Gordon Bennett Cup at
a record speed of 105 miles an hour.
Grahaine-White does not trouble
about mascots to any great extent,
but he invariably wears a pair of
check riding breeches under his fly
ing overalls when he makes a flight.
These garments are popularly bud-
posed to be lucky, and many other
iviators have adopted a similar fly
ing garb. Notable among these is
ISiolovoucie, the young Peruvian
airman, who recently flew over the
TEDDY BEAR IA FAVORITE.
Another favorite mascot is a little
Teddy bear -which is strapped to
one of the wing stays on the hia
chine. In naval flying circles a
lion's tooth is considered to be a
lucky mascot for airmen a fashion
created by the late Lieutenant
Parke, for with such an emblem he
came out of many serious smashes
Lewis Turner, the well-known
pilot instructor, who flies the
Caudron biplanes, has so many
mascots that he is generally in
doubt as to which he shall take up
with him. He recently remarked
that were he to wear all his mascots
at once he would be mistaken for a
Ludgato Hill toy dealer. .
There ate many quaint supersti
tions in rogue at the aerodromes.
Chief among these is th. t should a
pilot have one smash he will have
two others on the same day if he
continues flying. This belief is so
firmly rooted in the minds of most
aviators that after a mishap they
seldom again trast themselves on a
machine until twenty-four hours
Many airmen also have a super
stitious dislike of flying in bright
sunshine. But there is a sub-stratum
of common sense running through
this belief. The hot rays of the
sun when shilling on a damp ground
cause heat eddies in the air, which
are very dangerous to flying men.
Tmse are known as air pockets,
which are holes in the air that con
tain no support for machine or
TIIIH TEEIN Til IS UNLUCKY.
Flying on the thirteenth day of
the month is in great disfavor
among many airmen. And this
superstition is largely due to the
fact that so many fatal accidents
have occurred to airmen on this
Last year ten pilots were killed
while flying on the thirteenth of
the different months, and already
this year three airmen have been
killed, two on the thirteenth of
January and one on the thirteenth
Airmen are also influenced by
the lehavior of animals on the
ground when they are flying over
them. If horses or cattle appear
terrified at a pilot's approach, and
utter warning cries, then this is re
garded as an omen of ill luck. But
if the animals over which he is
passing are not alarmed to any ex
tent by his approach, then he has
little fear that his flight will be any
thing but successful.
WOMEN LUCKY PASSENGERS
Another . bad omen is the stop
ping of a watch on an aeroplane
when it is aloft.
Women passengers are popularly
supposed to insure the success of an
aeroplane flight. On of the most
consistent luck-bringers in this res-
Ipect is Miss Trehawke Davies. She
invariably brings luck to the pilot

LIGHT, GAY DINING RUOM.
Uio Colonial Landscape Papara or
Paneled Effecta on Wall.
First of nil, snys Elsie le Wolfe In
Good Housekeeping, t think a dining
room should be light and gny. If pos
sible always choose a room which has
plenty of sunshine for n dining room.
The next thing Is the planning of a be
coming background for the mistress
of the house. The room should always
be gay and charming In color, but the
color should be selected with due con
sideration for Its becomlngness with
relation to the hosless. Every wonino
tins a right to be pretty In her owp
The quaint landscape papers which
are seen In so many New England
dining rooms seem to belong with
American colonial furniture and white
woodwork, the prim silver and the
gold bonded china. These landscape
papers ore usually gay in effect and
make for cheer. There are many new
landscape designs less complicated
than the old ones. Then, too, there
are charming foliage papers made up
of leaves and branches and birds which
are very good.
I do not favor the dark, henry treat
ments and elaborate stuff hangings
which seem to represent tho taste of
most of the men who go In for decorat
ing nowadays. Nine times out of ten
the dining room seems to be the gloomi
est room in the house. I think It should
be a place where the family may meet
In gayety of spirit for a pause In the
vexatious happenings of the day. I
think light tones, gay wall papers, flow
ers and sunshine are of more Impor
tance than storied tapestries and heavi
ly carved furniture. These things are
all very well for the house that has a
small dining room and a gala dining
room for formal occosions as well, but
there are few such houses. Faneled
walls are always possible. If you can't
afford wood paneling, paint the plaster
ed wall white or cream and break it
into panels by using a narrow molding
of wood. You can get an effect of
great dignity by tho use of molding
at o few cents a foot.
Charming Games For Children te Play
at Spring Parties.
These few suggestions may prove
helpful to the mother who intends to
entertain small folks:
A floral color trail is an interesting
game. Any flower may be sel'icted and
fastened with narrow ribbon in twenty
or thirty different places.
The iwer is displayed to the chil
dren, akd the number hidden is told.
Each child is given a penciPand card,
and as he finds the flowers the place Is
carefully noted. Ground trails may be
set with small green twigs.
This gome is very popular with young
folks in England.
The trail of the green leaf, which
should be played out of doors, demands
senses very much alert.
Any variety of green leaf is selected
and tied to trees and shrubbery with
small ends of green tape or ribbon.
The children are not told how many
times it Is hidden, but at the expiration
of a given length of time are asked to
disclose how many times they have de
tected the leaf and where.
Another charming open air hunt is
the game of Peter Tan.
A child dressed to represent that fa
vored friend of youth is perched upon
a stone or in a tree. He tells the chil
dren that somewhere about the garden
is bidden each animal mentioned in the
book of Peter Pan.
The children search diligently until
every animal is found and then are re
warded with their findings.
Chocolate cream roll Is a delicious
bread that is little known by the aver
age housewife. Here is a recipe that
will appeal to the most fastidious taste:
Beat three large eggs very light with
out separating the whites and yolks.
Gradually beat In one cupful and a
half of granulated sugar, two table
spoonfuls of melted butter, three
ounces of melted chocolate and then
half a cupful of lukewarm water.
CHOCOLATE CKEAM ROLL.
Lastly beat in one cupful of sifted
pastry flour, one-fourth cupful of po
tato flour (half a cupful of ordinary
flour may replace the smaller quantity
of potato flour), half a level teaspoou-
ful of soda, says the Boston Cooking
School Magazine, and a slightly round
ing teaspoouful of cream of tartar sift
ed together. The cake should be less
than three-fourths of an inch thick
when baked. Trim off the crisp edges.
Spread at once with marshuiallow
cream filling and roll up like a Jelly
rolL Roll in waxed paper and set
aside a short time. Then spread the
outside with "dot" chocolate melted
over warm water or with a confection
er's frosting made of a square of melt
ed chocolate, three tablespoonfuls of
boiling water, half a teaspoouful of
vanilla and confectioner's sugar (sifted)
