A striking example of the genert.1
utility of the motor truck and its
daptatlon to railroad needs Is Indi
uted in the use that a railroad com
pany Is making of trucks In Las An
geles. California. This railroad owns
i ranch near the city and Is using a
fleet of Pierce Arrow trucks in tran-
sportlon freight to and from the
ranch, to relieve the unprecedented
digestion of rolling stock there.
the flexibility and economy of motor
truck service are appealing to all
lines of industry, and are responsible
for the motor truck's introduction in
to classes of service that a year ago
were considered Impossibly TJhe
flexibility of motor truck Bervlce Is
graphically illustrated in the opera-
lion of the seven trucks of the Good
year Tire and Kubber Company,
forming the regular Akron-Boston
line. These trucks can at any time
be utilized in hauling emergency
shipments of tires to the automobile
and truck manufacturers of Detroit,
Toledo and other cities of the cent
ral west, with only the loss of two
or three days from their regular line.
The most important contest in
motorcycle hill"' climbing is the ann
ual climb held on the Capistrano
hill near Los Angeles, California.
Two important events are held here
one for strictly stock machines and
the other free for oil, Irrespective of
make or equipment. In the big free
for all held April 15th, Calvin Lam
bert, winner of last year's climb, ro
peated his victory. Sam Hamilton
won the climb for Btock machines,
Both riders used Excelsior mounts
equipped with Goodyear tires on the
rear wheel the driving wheel. The
average grade of the hill is 50 per
cent although beyond the first 200
feet the grade runs 70 per cent.
The contests were replete with
thrills. Some machines stood on
end and finally turned over back
wards, while some looped the loop
and went ot'f the course, after which
the crowd retreated and gave the
riders plenty of elbow room.
Mr. J. F. Clapper, of the Lihue
Garage, and local selling agent for
the Mlehelin Tire- Company, says
that the action of dampness on the
rubber part of an automobile tire is
insignificant, but its effect on the
canvas Is serious.
When cotton fabric is left in a
moist atmosphere, such as on the
floor of a damp cellar, for example,
it Is not long before spots and stains
make their appearance. Such stains
denote the presence of minute de
structive growths or tiny mushroom
organisms, the action of which re
duces the fabric to mould. The same
is true of wall paper hung in a damp
room; eventually the paper will fall
from the walls.
The application of these experi
ments to automobile tires is easily
Sometimes a casing will blow out
suddenly, perhaps when the car Is
being used for the first time in the
spring, the cause being weakness re
sulting from the decay of the canvas.
In order to judge the seriousness
of such damage, it must be determin
ed whether the canvas of the tread
only has been affected, for in that
case the tire can be retreaded and
restored to thoroughly serviceable
condition. If the Uody canvas of the
casing Is affected, as well as the
tread, it becomes necessary to have
the casing completely rebuilt.
Deterioration caused by damp
ness can be prevented by storing
tires in absolutely dry cool places.
"If motorists were beter acquaint
ed with the advantages of having
their Hres retreaded when not worn
through the carcass, many miles
would be added to tire life," is the
declaration 'of G. E. Hrunner, Mana
ger, Service Department, The Good
year Tire & Rubber Co.
"A retread can greatly extend the
usefulness of a tire carcass that has
had good care, but a tire that has
been run "soft," overloaded or tread
cut, or mistreated in other ways, can
not be profitably repaired. -
"If a tire is run underinf!ated it
will probably be stone bruised or
weakened in the iiidewalls. If run
over iuuueu u win ue in me same
condition, except the trouble will
show closer to the bead of the tire.
If tread cut, the carcass in likely to
be perforated with glass cuts, nail
holes or the fabric rotted from mois
ture seeping in through the tread
cuts, and the plies of fabric seper
ated from each other.
"A good vulcanizer will always be
able to -tell, after examination of a
tire, if its condition will warrant pro
fitable retreading. And no repair
man will advise a retread when the
carcass Is in bad shape, for the car
cass is the foundation of the tire, and
if this is bad, no tread however well
put on will add sufficient mileage to
the tire to warrant the expense involved.
"But where the tire has had gooi: '
;:uo and the fabric Is uninjured, n '
etre.d is a profitable investment.
Many thousands of miles are added '
:o tire life In this manner. Before '
discarding old tires, they should" be
taken to a competent vulcanizer for
examination. Perhaps, a new tread,
or a new section can be built into a
tire, that will greatly increase its
length of services.
"Vulcanizing treads on used tires,
has reached so great a degree of per
fection, that even racing drivers are
using retreaded tires. In the past
racing drivers never used tires that
have undergone any kind of repairs
only new ones were considered
safe. But that retreaded tires are a
success on the race track Is abund
antly proven In the experience of
Louis Chevrolet, who during the win
ter season won several races on the
western coast on retreaded Good
year cord tires."
"In the interests of conservation
every motorist should first consider
the advantages of a retread before
sending to the scrap heap hi ft old
