While lliiBolInc Car has
ntisual Interest ntnung the
local iiutumtdillo bu)cis since Its nr
ilval here last week. Tho machlno
has scvcial strong mechanlcnl fea
tures that do not appear In any oth
er American car.
Discussing the block s)stem ot
ranting (')llndeis, a prominent nuto
mobllo expert stated: "The block
s)stini or canting cylinders is un
doubted!) the best engineering prac
tice for several reasons. Tho block
yjslem gives great rigidity to the
crank, case and so keep the bearings
In perfect alignment permanently;
not only Is this true of the crunk
shnft nnd crank pin bearings but
alio of the piston pins nnd pistons
themselves ns the unit casting braces
the individual cylinders iu the most
Instead of the usual number of
Joints to bo kept tight, say four to
each 'cylinder for the, unit s)stem,
sIMecu In all for Tour cylinders or
four to each pair in tho twin con
struction, eight In nil, not to men
tion oil pipes, and While motor has
onl) four lo tho whole set nnd no
oil pipes to the whole bloclj. This
constiuctlon and the absence of nu
merous Joints not only Insures less
operating trouble hut makes disas
sembling, when necessary, very
much easier and quicker.
"The block construction lessens
the distance between centers of tho
cylinders by icason of tho nbsence
of water Jacket walls between' the
cj Undent and thus shortens the
crank shift to such nn extent that
the necessary rigidity of the shaft
can be insured without any center
bearings. The Influence of this short
construction Is not only seen In the
i .i.plkUj of the design but also In
tho great reduction In weight con
sequent on the nbeenee of wuter Jac
ket walls and bearings between the
cylinders and useless-length of crank
fchnft and this much shorter dis
tance fium tho das'h to tho radiator
which reduces the chassis weight
"Tho tendency of modern design
Is all toward the smallest motor
which can be nuule to deliver the
required power. Where only two
bcurings are used, as in the White,
tho dlniculty of keeping the bearings
lu alignment Is greatly reduced. The
White motor is undoubtedly tho very
highest possible t)pe ot modern con
struction, nnd In the mater ot de
sign, material, workmanship and
power delivered per unit of cylinder
volume, Is, nt least, a jear ahead
of any other American car, and the
result of this excellence Is seen in
tho remarkable quietness nnd high
efficiency of the motor.
"Tho four-speed change gear adds
greatly to the ctllclency of the mo
tor, and continental authorities cre
dit the four-speed car with l7o 10
lf toad advantago as compared
'With thrce-spced cars of the same
II. P. This can be given in terms
of cither average speed or fuel con
sumption, I. e nt the same speed
10 to 15 less fuel Is consumed
over average level nnd hilly road
or 1 OTc, to ID'S, less tlmo required
with tho same fuel consumed. This
Increased efficiency is due to the fact
that there Is always a near sujtable
lo tho grade and ono does iiot have
to raco the motor to get up a hill
that the next higher gear will not
take nor docs one rack the chassis
by forcing tho cnr.ovcr'a grade with
tho motor laboring. Tfie White four
speed gear set is Ideal in that the
thlid speed, which s the ono In uso
at nearly nil times, Is direct, while
tho fourth is for speeds above thirty
ulles per hour.
So many of tho gus cars, sold In
this market have tho high gear
about tho same as the Wlilto third
ipeed or direct drive. This is a very
lood thing for running around
.own, but where such construction
Is adopted, all cars, as the White
has, should have a fourth speed for
uuning on me icvoi on good roaus,
Otherwise, If tho car is run at any
urt of speed on tho level, the en
gine runs at an excessive speed and
uounds Itself to pieces.

"The economy hf 22 to 2S miles
per gallon of gasoline sjiown by this
mnchne, is the most remarkable (hat
has ever come under the writer's ob
servation durng the period of a doz
en years' experience with all type1!
of automobiles. "'
"It is surely' the Ideal car In size
nnd1 weight, betnuse' it Is easy on
tires and handles so well, and ought
to fill tho requirements of any roan
who wants an automobile; except tbe
sporty, reckless young bjood, who,
wants to enter races. The power Is
ample for all .requirements."
