Engines, Too, Get,
Watch Fan Belts and Cool
ing Systems; Keep Spark
Advanced When Driving
to Got the Best Results
By H. Clifford Brokavv

C. A. Automobile Schools
The automobil? engin? in summer is i
like a human bring in one respect at
least: namely, that it readily becomes
overheated. There is a variety of rea- ;
sons for this undesirable condition
which the motorist should be familiar ;
Overheating may be ona reason. If]
r>-c engii ' woo" to gorge itself |
too unrestrictedly on motor fodder, it
will tend to overheating. Those wl o
fcave found it necessary to cover the
mediator in winter and take off the
,. far? belt to keep the engine hot enough
to run smoothly and with proper
^Vaporization and Bring, may find that
have as much trouble during the
term keeping the engine cool
enough to ran properly.
Generally speaking, the nearer to the
boilinc point the water in the radiator
. ?jts without having it actually boil,
and steam away, the more effective
v . the results. Some engines de?
velop much les.? than the maximum
horsepower because they are too well
,'. i thers seem to become over?
heated on slight provocation, causing
the ?? '?? '?*?
would not occur if everything
were working a.; the designer intended
; it should. During the cold weather the
motorist who habitually djrives with a
retarded ?-park gets away witb it be?
cause the temperature is in bis favor.
But when the mercury goes up, he
finds that his engine overheats and
gives trouble. He has not changed his
i iod of driving and cannot under
the cause of his difficulty.
Keep Spark Advanced
In bet weather one good way to over?
heat the engine is to drive with a re?
tardai spark. A considerable manipu?
lation of the spark control lever is re?
quire,! for getting the best results. The
'tendency is, because the engine knocks
at low speed, to leave the lever partly
retarded instead of advancing it when <
a higher speed is reached.
With the magneto, it is the general
practice to advance the lever to three
fourths of seven-eighths of the fuit
range right after the engine is started
and leave it there for practically aUj
work except very high speed. The nat?
ure of the spark given by the magneto
changes somewhat with the speed of
the engine, and the equivalent of an
nrurtic advance and retard of the
?park occurs with the variation of
speed of the motor. With the battery
system, however, there is very little
change in the nature of the spark af?
fected by the engine speed.
Overheating may often be traced to
sediment in the radiator, -which cuts
off free radiation of heat. This may
be removed usually by the use of m
saturated solution of washing soda and
water. With the advent of hot weather
fach year it is well to fill the cooling
?-v = tem with a solution of this sort and
run the engine for several hours. Then
?'drain the solution off and refill the
system with clean water.
If in the system used a pump is em?
ployed, the upper .hose should, be dis?
connected from the radiator and the
engine should be run to pump the solu?
tion out of the system. At the same
time water from a hose or other source
should be fed into the top of the radia?
tor a3 fast as it Is pumped out, and
thus flush the entire system before
connecting up the hose again.
Where the thermo-syphon system is
y,ed, which does not employ a pump, it
is, of course, impossible to do this.
But one should remove both upper and
lower hose connections after running
the engine with the solution and wash
it out with fresh water as well as pos?
sible. A hose inserted in the upper con?
nection of the cylinder probably would
force all the solution out, with any col?
lection of sediment, and the same
process with ?.he radiator ought to
clean it out.
Watch the Fan Belt
Fan belts are more likely to get out
of order in summer than in winter.
This may be because the engine throws
grease and oil more readily in hot
weather. Belt3 should have grease
enough to keep them soft and pliable,
but too much causes slipping. They
' should be wiped free of all oil occa?
sionally. There is always a belt ad?
justment, and this should be tightened
so taat there is sufficient tension to
drive the fan at all engine speeds.
Wherever the flywheel has spokes to
form a fan the oil pan and hood should
, be kept tight, so that air will be drawn
through the radiator rather tha..
through other openings. If the radia?
tor is not kept free from oil the out?
side passages will very quickly collect
du?_ which will prevent a free flow of
air and cut off the radiating surface.
The same effect is secured when the
front of the radiator is too thickly
smeared with paint.
Pumps will wear out in time. But
this is one of the last places to look
for trouble. The action of the pump
fnay be determined usually by remov?
ing the radiator filler cap when the en?
gine is running and noting wheth/r or
not the water is circulating. But if a
?baffle plate is placed in the filler open
? lie it cannot be seen, and a test can
be made in the same manner by which
the cleaning solution is washed out.
Look Out for Sediment
y,. With the thermo-syphon system
there is very little pressure generated
and a Flight obstruction will stop the
flow of water. Therefore, it is more
necessary to keep the system free from
jsediment and to see that the gaskets
at the joints are made with circular
openings of full size, so as not to ob?
struct the flow of, water. Likewise,
water must be kept above the top hose
of the radiator in order to have any
circulation in this type of cooling sys?
Carelessness in stretching the hose
- over the pipe is another cause of over?
heating. And it is difficult to locate.
Some times the lining of the hose is
loosened and folds back inside, cover?
ing the opening of the pipe so that
Water does not flow freely. Also the
lining of the hose will some times
loosen up and pieces will lodge where
?ney cut off tha circulation.
In addition, keep the engine- free
-from carbon and keep the valve push
rods adjusted close, have the mixture
?3 lean as possible and be sure the ex?
haust from the muffler is free. And
the discomforts and trouble from over?
heating during the warm weather
months will be Isssened, if not entirely
eliminated, on the part of both auto?
mobile and automobilist.
-A New One. on the Cop

nance went into effect a motor cop
hailed a lady driving a limousine on

Price Levels in
Auto Industry Are
Wei! Shaken Down
Now That July 1 Has Been
Passed It Is Believed That
There Will Be Little Re?
ductions for Some Time
Price readjustment in the automo- I
bile ir.iuitry Boema to have been about;
complet? d, judging from the ?nal report:
jr.st issued by the National Automobile
Chamber of Commerce, which BROWS
changed prices on the various makes i
of- cars. The new prices in many in- I
>tances go back to the figures of a fowl
yaayg airo, -notwithstanding that tho I
ra,odela in n;any casca arc bigger, with :
better finish and such additional equip?
ment as card tires and improved el?c?
In the opinion of students of the in?
dustry, the mid-year change has now
stabilized the industry to a degree that
is bringing increased sales to ali corn
Carload shipments from the fac?
tories during April and May were- G7
per cent of the production for the
same two months of last year, and
there is reason to believe June will be j
at approximately the same rate.
Compared with the feverish rush of
motor cars last spring a two-thirds de?
mand looks to be a big falling off, but
compared with normal years it shows
that the motor car business is faring
much better than other lines.
There has been a steady demand for
used ears, prices of which have also
been substantially reduced. Lower prices
on new cars have been offset some?
what by the reduced allowances on
used cars when offered for a trade-in
by the retail buyer. In other words,
many who waited for the reductions
of the past few months saved com?
paratively little, owing to the lower
valuation on their old car.
Good buying power has been shown
where prices have been reduced or
Where it was known that present
prices and quality would be main?
tained. 'I he National Automobile
Chamber of Commerce figures show
that with more than 8,000,000 pas?
senger cars in use the replacement
demand alone should be about 1,000.
000 cars. The production of pas
senger cars last year was 1,883,000. To
show how close are the new prices
one of the largest manufacturers in
? his last cut was able only to reduce
I $25. This manufacturer is producing
at the rate of 110,000 vehicles a month. ,
During this readjustment period some
I cars are being sold at a loss because
! of the high wages anil the costly ma?
terials that were bought last fall.
This week may bring a few more
j changes in cars that have rot been
? reduced this year, and it is generally
I agreed that the mid-year reductions
} have stabilized conditions in the in?
dustry, with little possibility of further
pchanges during 1921.
Tiie success of the automobile ir.due
; try has been based on big production
: and the resulting low prices which in
; pure a broad market. For that reason
every effort has been made to produce
better cars at lower prices to insure
! the big productions which make in?
creased values possible. Moreover, in
these readjustments of the last few
weeks, motor car manufacturers gen?
erally have taken into consideration
1 the need for increased car and truck
I sales by the 25,000 dealers throughout
The truck business continues to b?
on a par with general business, but
with an improved future just as soon
as g?nerai construction and road build?
ing programs get under way and rail

Car Equipment Has
To Be as Stated in
If Not, Company Need Not
Pay Losses When In?
curred, on the Ground of
a Breach in Contract
By L. H. Goldberg
A warranty in an automobile insur?
ance policy is as important and binding
as any legal agreement.
A motorist giving the insurance com?
pany ?otice that his car is equipped
with an approved locking device, under
fire and theft policv, and an approved
! front bumper under collision protec?
tion, receives a discount for such war
| ranties. These facts are incorporated
j in his policies, and if such equipment
? is not used a breach of contract is
created, thus making the policy in?
valid. Any losses sustained by the car
owner need not be recognized by the
? insurance company.
Occasionally tha insurance broker,
i being too zealous to obtain the allow
? anee for such equipment for the owner,
? will have the policies written with such
Warrantries, and may either forget to
j advise the car's Owner to obtain the
i necessary equipment or the motorist
j may carelessly leavo the matter unat
; tended, with the result of having to
I bear the burden of loss himself.
The .insurance broker is.the recog
! r.ized agent of the policy holder, and
! the ordering of such a defective con
! tract is binding upon the motorist. It
? would be well to read over policies
! car??ully in order to protect one's in
| tereet, for the insurance broker is
j human, and makes mistakes.
The collision feature of insurance
is discussed very aptly in the recent
i issue of The Eastern Underwriter,
i in part as follows:
"The question of collision cover and
| rates has been very freely discussed,
but there is one phase of it that may
not have had quite as much attention
I as some of the others, and that is the
i kinds of claims made under the colli
i sion clause. For example, there are
! claims for the breaking of glass and
j dentiug of panels caused by thrown
i stones or other missiles from outside
j and inside the car; claims for broken
springs, broken glass and other injury
! to the car caused by the car running
over uneven roads; claims for damages
to glass caused by the banging of the
doors; claims for damages caused by
bridges or culverts which give way un?
der the weight of the car and, in fall?
ing, precipitate the car into the open?
ing, causing damage to it; claims for
damage to cars caused by the collapse
of buildings or floors in buildings;
claims for damage to cars which run j
off the road and upset; and at least one !
claim is known to have been presented j
for damage to a car which ran off the
front of a ferry boat; and one for dam- j
ag?> to a car which was ?ut of control j
and was run into a lake.
"When the collision cover was pre- |
pared it is reasonable to presume that
none of these classes of losses were in j
contemplation, and if the situation ?
were other than it is it might be
feasible to word the cover so that the
benefit of ail those doubtful kinds of
losses could be given the assured and
a commensurate rate charged, but the. I
'colusi?n rate is already toe high, so!
j high, in fact, that is causing many a
| desirable customer to forego collision |
; cover, and therefore nothing should be I
; included and charged for."

Moon Makes Its Second
Reduction in Prices
The second new schedule of lower
nriccs to be announced by tha Moon
Motor Car Company is made public by
William J. Coghlan, president of the
Moon Motor Car Company of New York,
Eastern distributors. Mr. Coghlan
states that after the first reduction was
made, some months ago, production at
the factory was so increased by reason
of the flood of orders following upon
the new prices that it was found possi?
ble to figure on an even further reduc?
tion, in order that the public might
share in the benefits of volume produc
Specifications of the car are in no
fionno changed, and the Moon is exactly
as it has been throughout the season.
It Is simply, in the words of Mr. Cogh?
lan, a plan, to let the public share in
the advantages to the factory of in?
creased buying after the first price
change. The factory gained 27 per
cent over its schedule of production
after tho first announcement.
Velie Makes Reduction
Another cut in prices totaling reduc?
tions of $400 on leading models has
been made on all Velie passenger cars.
The total cut on the smaller six, model
34. is $200, bringing the price down to
New prices on other styles are as
follows: Model 48, sedan, $2,485;
I Model 48, speedster. $1,S00; Model 48,
' seven-passenger, $1,950; Model 34, se

Good Roads Lead
Can Be Reached by Either
Shore of the Hudson by!
Motorists Leaving N. Y.
City; Routes Outlined
The Catskill region Is one of tne
most picturesque and healthful moun?
tain sections in the Eastern states,
and now that the touring season is
fully open tho Automobile Club of
America, bureau of tours, provides the
routea for a two or three days' trip
here. A spur of the great Appalachian
system, which extends along the At- ;
lantic Coast from Maine to Alabama,
the Catskills cover an area of some
2,400 square miles, with a general
trend from southeast to northwest.
The roads are in splendid shape.
All the trunk lino highways that lead ?
to the Catskills are hard surfaced, and ?
those that radiate through the moun?
tains are in most cases hard-surfaced
and in good condition.
To reach the Catskill section from
New York City both sides of the river
can be used. From New York, on the
East Side, go north along the Albany
Post Road through Yonkers, Tarry?
town, Ossining, Feekskill and Pough
keepsie to lihinebeck; then to Rhine
cliff, where the ferry is crossed to
Kingston. Or the motorist can con?
tinue on to Greendale or Hudson,
where the Greendale ferry crosses to
Catskill and the Hudson ferry crosses
to Athens, both of which are in the
foothills of the Catskills,
From New York on the West side of
the river, cross by ferry and run to
Hackensack, then north through Suf
fern, Tuxedo, and Cornwall to New
burgh and continue north to Kingston,
either via the river road through High?
lands or New Paltz. From Kingston,
the most direct way to get into the
heart of the Catskills is the scenic
route around the Ashokan Reservoir,
then along the Esopus Creek to Phoe?
nicia, thence into the heart of the Cat
skills through the Stony Clove; in fact,
the Stony Clove is the only safe way to
get into the center of the Catskills
from the south and east, as the Platte?
kill Clove and the Kaaterskill Clove are
both steep and dangerous.
Motorists going in from the village
of Catskill can run west through Cairo
to Windham, then south through Hen
sonville to Hunter, Tannersyille and
Haines Falls. The main line through
the center of the mountain runs west
from Tannersville through Hunter,
Lexington, Prattsville and Grand Gorge
to Stamford. Motorists coming down
from Albany will find it preferable to
continue on through Catskill to Sau
gerties, then west through Woodstock
and Biairsville to Mount Pleasant, con?
necting with the trunk line northwest
of the Ashokan Reservoir.
To reach the Catskills from the
I Delaware Water Gap and Pennsylvania

Find Out Before You Buy?You want to know what to expect of
your car when it is a year old and has had thousands ?if miles of service.
Will it become loose and noisy? Grow wasteful of oil and fuel?
Lose efficiency? Require replacements, frequent repairs and ad?
justments? Or will it remain free of these disabilities?
Owners Will Gladly Help You
New car demonstrations are nearly all sat?
But no printed word?no salesman's claim
?no mere demonstration reveals the perma?

You can- eas?yvjudge Essex looks. The

You will like its easy riding, its simple con?

Ask about the clutch. It is so efficient,
hardly any driver is even conscious the car
has such a unit.
The items which account for long Essex
life are for the most part inconspicuous.
Unless you are mechanically in?

greater performance, smoothness,
and safety are of the highest impor?
