PROTECT THE BATTERY
The man who is not used to han
dling batteries imight say that the
way to get the most out of a battery
is to use it just as little as possible.
As a matter of fact, that would be
just the wrong way to go at it. Bat
teries are mant to' be used and they
caln be usedt regularly and put
through some pretty stiff paces and
yet last a long time, if the man who
uses them only follows a few simple
rules of Ibattery care.
Here are a few of the rules:
1. Be sure your ignition switch is
2. Pull o out your choker.
3. Push out your clutch pedal, so
that your starting motor will have to
turn only the ongitn-.
4. Then step on your starting
button. and your motor ought to
take hold. Ift it does not, then the
thing to do is to find where the
trouble is and roemedy it before you
make another trial.
Battery life will be prolonged if
these rules are observed all the year
round and in all climates.

SOFT TIRE IS AL
WY S FIRST TO
Do Not Lower the Pressure e
on Hot Days, Warns the S
Head of the Goodyear ,
"These hot summer days are the
ones that cost motorists a lot of
money," is the declaration of E. G.
Brunner, manager of the service de- d
partment of the Goodyear Tire and
Rubber company, Akron, Ohio. o
"Most motorists have a wrong im- r
pression about the increase of air t
plressure in tires in warm weather,"
adds Mr. Brunner. "in fact, the be
lief is quite common that on hot days
the air pressure may increase to the l
point of causing a .,fowout. There t
really is nothing to this belief, for
the heat does not come from the i
temperature of the air outside, as is
commonly supposed, but from the
natural flexing of the tire as it rolls
over the road or street.
s "As the heat is due to the bend
r ing of the tire, the same amount of
- heat is created regardless of the out
side temperature. Most tire users
t believe that to over:umne this effect
- the pressure must Le tiecreased, and
- the common practice is to run tires
d at a lower pressure on hot days. But
v this increases the bending of the tire
e carcass, and the n:otorist actually
i- aggravates the tire conaition that he
e seeks to relieve when he decreases
the pressure in his tires.
Increase Is Slight.
"It is true that on a very hot day
g the air pressure in tires that are used
continuously increases slightly, but
-1 never sufficiently to cause any in
n jury to the tire. Tires are not as
fragile as some persons imagine, and
are able to stand three and four
times the ordinary pressure used.
"There is more danger in decreas
ing the pressure than in permitting
it to increase, for after the tires have
rested a while the air pressure will
drop, and there is always the danger
that the motorist will omit to put
in enough air to bring the pressure
up to the required pom;t.
c- "There is no condition in which
-n I tires are subjected to greater varia
ci tions in air pressure than in auto
s, mobile racing on out speedways. Yet
p even on the hottest days the terrific
•s grinds of the race tracks, with tires
al revolving 20 times a second, do not
in cause them to blow out. And there
at is certainly no condition in ordinary
a- driving that even approaches those
as of the speedway.
B "The recent races at Indianapolis
d- were held on one of the hottest days
to that racers have ever experienced,
sy yet 38 per cent less tires were chang
t- ed than at any previous races, nine
of the 10 winning cars being equip
pd with Goodyear cord tires.
"Racing drivers have learned that
after a tire becomes heated to a cer
tain point the radiation of heat from
the tire is as great as the genera
tion of heat-all of which means
that any increased mar pressure due
to heat is negligible in its effect on
"There is no question but that
to motorists will profit greatly by keep
er ing up tire air pressure, no matter
'l- what the heat conditions."
