Who Is to Teach Wife
To Drive Automobile?
Should a man teach his wife tr
drive the family car or should she
be taught by a stranger?
One of the headliners in the pro
gram of-"Perplexing Problems for
Motorists" is the foregoing. Many a I
man has pondered over the proposi
tion or' acted on the advice of a friend I
with misgivings. There is no ques- I
tion that the women should learn tco
drive, but whether it is policy for the
paternal head of the family to do the 1
instructing is another thing.
It also has been said that hubby
shosgld exert all his influence and .if
necessary use all his powers of per
suasion to see that friend wife is not
instrusted in the gentle art of driv
ing by someone else, if he wishes any
peace of mind when driving in the
presence of his wife.
For, if she learns to drive under
the tutelage of someone else, she'll
make flippant and embarrassing re
marks about his driving, and pretty
soon she'll be showing him things
that he never knew anything about
and eventually she'll have him learn
ing all over again from her.
Still it is not such a difficult task
to teach the wife to drive and the
best results are obtained when a def
inite program is laid out.
The whole secret of teaching any
one to drive is not expecting them to
learn too much at once. A schedule
of one lesson a day, of one hour each
for five days has been found to cover
the ground very thoroughly and com
pletely. But the first thing to teach
Mrs. Wife is the difference between
the left side and the right side. This
may seem a very trivial matter, but
suppose you told her to turn left and
she went to the right, you can see the
damage that might occur.
The first day should be devoted en
tirely to steering instructions al
though while resting you can explain
the action of the clutch and throttle,
but do not touch them. After you
have, taken the car out on a lonely
stretch of road, far from the madden
ing throng, show, her how the car can
be steered slowly from side to side by
the 'slightest exertion on the wheel.
caution her against turning the wheel
too much or too quickly. After this is
donbe move over as far as possible on
your seat, still remaining behind the
wheel, and let her do the steering.
COOD ROADS SAVE C
LARGE SUM DAILY
The improved roads of Milwaukee
county; Wisconsin, save $25,000 a m
clay to the people who use them. tt
This is the estimate of the county fi
commissioner of highways, as report- $
ed to the bureau of public roads of T
the United States department of agri- b.
culture. The statistics are based on C
a census of the traffic taken periodi- f(
cally during the last four years. The p
census is made by selecting 52 points m
scattered throughout the county and t
making seven counts at each point, i,
one for every day of the week. The t
count is not made on consecutive i
days, but at various periods from
April to November, so as to arrive at
average conditions. This census is
taken to determine the durability of
certain types of pavement, accord
ing to the amount of traffic a square
yard. It shows that about 25,000
vehicles of all kinds travel the high- b
ways each day. Traffic on the road s
has increased about 42 per cent aife
year during the four years in which
the survey has been made.
NOW TO CLEAN PLUCS '
An excellent method of cleaninge
spark plugs or, in fact, any mica sur- i
face is to wash them first in a 10 per t
cent solution of acetic acid, which is r
an infallible solvent of grease and s
carbon deposits. The plugs should t
then be washed off with gasoline and v
finally dried by rubbing them with t
CLEAN MOTOR OF OIn. O i
After the operation of oilin? has
been completed it is a good plan to
go over the parts treated and wipe
off any surplus oil on the outside.
This oil serves no useful purpose
whatever, but it does collect dirt as I
surely as flypaper attracts flies. i
Neatness is a healthy sign about the t
motor car, for the mechanism that
is-kept clean has probably been given
the attention it needs. 1
CARBURETOR TEST SLMPLE. 1
The float valve may be worn, need
uing grinding. There may be a small
piece of dirt in the valve which pre
vents it from seating.
To test the latter trouble, prime
the carburetor freely to wash the
dirt through into the float chamber.
If drip stops the trouble has been
remedied. If drip continues the
valve must bb inspected.

On the second day after going out
to the same lonely stretch of road,
where you are sure no one will be
offended by your language, start in
precisely as you did the day before.
As soon as Mrs. Wife has mastered c
the steering gear, let her use the d
foot throttle on open stretches of c
road, but you should remain behind II
the wheel. The entire hour should t
be spent this way, and here while 0
resting you can explain the function ii
of the gears and tell her why it is t
necessary to shift them. And, while c
you are steering and operating the t
clutch, she can shift the gears un
til she has thoroughly mastered the t
method of changing from one speed
to another. r
Third Day. S
On the third day you can again t
explain the action of the clutch, lay- I
ing particular emphasis on the neces- g
sity of engaging the clutch slowly o
when starting. You can now let her A
sit behind the wheel, since she under- b
stands gear shifting, it will not con- e
fuse if you do the shifting while she d
gives her 'attention to mastering the
foot throttle, the foot brake, the
steeripg gear, and operating the B
clutch as you tell her.
Start the fourth lesson, if you have I
the patience and endurance to last r
this long, by letting her practice the t
gear shifting for several minutes.
while you operate the clutch and 1
steer. Now you are ready for the t
big job. With friend wife behind the c
wheel, explain the necessity of giv- I
ing the motor a little gas to prevent I
it from stalling, and with her operat- s
ing the clutch and throttle, start off c
in low gear, you doing the shifting. 1
After this has been done a couple of 1
times, let Mrs. Wife shift the gears r
until she has thoroughly mastered f
The last lesson is merely a reitera

CHINA 'RAISES tBIG ci
FUND TO IMPROVE
The use of motor cars has been the
made possible in Foochow, China, by sel
the enterprise of the provincial of- pri
ficials, who have recently spent
$280,000 in improving the roads.
The market for motor cars is limited PF
by the lack of good roads, and as the
Chinese have shown a decided desire
for motor cars whenever their use is
possible, the suggestion has been thi
made by prominent men in China Un
that it would pay a combination of art
motor car companies to finance loans rul
to the different provinces to be used wh
only in road construction. tre

s CURB BACKING HARIIMFUL.
0 When cars are backed sharply
e against curbstones or strike road
obstructions at high speed the inner-1 B1
e most layers are sometimes stretched
s beyond their elastic limit and the
i. fabric threads or cords break. The
e tire is weakened at this point and
It under the strain of active use other
n plies begin to give way. Eventually 7
the tube is caught and pinched by g
the jaws of the fabric break and a
blowout necessarily follows. General- 4
i_ ly such tires can be repaired. With 1,
i1 a Goodyear rim patch a temporary p,
repair can be effected until it is pos
sible to have a permanent repair a:

1e usually enables a tire to deliver 01
r. many additional miles of service. tt
e SOLID TIRE: I'OPUI,~ALR.
Tire dealers in small towns are
showing an increasing tendency to
put in a line of solid truck tires,
says the United States Tire company. 1
This is largely due to the impetus
given to the motor truck industry 1
during the war period, and the de
mand even in small towns for solid t,
tire service facilities. The most ex
pensive part of the installation of the
line is the purchase of a press, but p
the opportunity for good business is
[N overcoming this difficulty. 4

Indications that the United States g
cannot continue long to depend on It
domestic petroleum production to ni
completely supply the demand and it
must sooner or later use oil shales d
to supply the deficit is the conclusion of
of the bureau of mines following an tl
investigation in the oil shale indus
try. The burea. found no comnllller
cial oil shale plants inl operation in p1
this country up to this tine, although a;
there is a well established industry a
in Scotland. ft
"The American shale deposits are II
richer in recoverable oil than the o
Scotch shales now worked, while at
the same time market conditions in o
this country are less favorable than i11
in Scotland," says an expert on the ,
subject. "There are great quantities a
of American shales in the Rocky ft
Mountain district from which it. will
be practical to secure oil if the prop- n
er transportation and marketing con
ditions will be created to make it
"The shale oil industry cannot it
hope," states the bureau, "to sup- It
plant the petroleuml industry inll a
large way for many years, but will i
probably grow up from local indus- I
tries in favorable localities. It is an
uncertain industry, due to the lack of c
knowledge of the quantity, products 11
to be obtained from oil shale in this
country and because it will require c
large capital, large technical and
business ability and probably provide
slow return on the investments. Once
completely established, however, the'
bureau believes the industry will
have a successful future. It recom
mends the use of the Scotch methods
for assaying shale in this country.
Distilled in Scotland.
"Oil shale has been distilled in
Scotland since 1860, increasing from o
2,350 long tons in 1871 to 4,116,529
long tons in 1917. The Scotch shales
are mined underground by methods
similar to those used for coal mining
in this country. The yield of Scotch
shale averages about 24.5 United
States gallons of crude oil and 35.7
pounds of ammonium sulphate per
short ton. The yield of gas per short t
ton reported is about of 240 1. t. u.
per cubic foot.
"The products obtained by refin
ing the Sctoch crude oil include Imo
tor fuel oils, lubricating oils, paraf
fin w ax and coke.

VALIVE GRINDING 0
It is just as intil)ortant to know
when not to grind a valveI as to know
when grinding is l'I'neessary, is the
sound advice given by Arnold P.
Yerkes in an article oin Valve in- H
spection and (:rinding" in August
It is quite well known by many
motorists that not all engiiInes run
better after the valves have been
ground, a fact thicth is attributed
to the unnecessary grindling which of
Smakes for leaky valves. The writer ar

to follow. In Stronghold tires the

of friction adds to the life of tilhe
USE [OCES OF WORN FILE i
i Occascionally it becomes necessary I
for the nlan who operates his own
car to file a piece of cast iron that _
has been subjected to friction and
has acquired a glassy surface or -
"skin." The best way to get through 06
this skin is to use the edges of the 6
old file, as using a good file on such t
surfaces will spoil it.
CAUSE OF NOISE
Noise in the driving bevels of the

Sadjustment, allowing too little or too

TIRES, IS PLEA
Because Modern Product
Gives Long Service No
Excuse for Neglect.
"Don't neglect your tires just be
cause they stay up and give you long
service," is .the advice of the: service
manager of the Fisk Rubber com
"In these days when the' science
of manufacture has progressed to the
stage where high mileages, unknown
in the earlier days, are now the gen
eral rule, it is convenient for many
to drive recklessly along without
thought or regard fortheir tires.
"Tires need attention the same as
your motor. They need to be prop
erly fitted to the rim and wheel.
They must be trued up and the
wheels must be aligned regularly.
Gashes and cuts picked up on sharp
stones or trolley switches should be
treated and cared for like any wound.
There's a way to do this at a cost
of only a few cents. Any reliable
tire dealer can provide you with Fill
icut and show you how to use it.
"Look out for those little things
regularly, make a habit of it, and
you'll add many more miles to your
tire life and obtain the full service
that modern tire construction builds
into your casings."
ITALY STRONG FOR TRUCK
The use of motor vehicles as feed
ers to the railroads is believed' to be
more extended in Italy than in any
other country in the world. This is
owing to the fact that Italy is a
mountainous country in which rail
road lines can only be built at con
,sidlerable cost. The total length of
normal track railroad lines in Italy
is 8,700 miles, while the length of
the routes over which motor services
are run with a fixed timetable is
S8,070 miles. There are 400 motor
lines, over which r ,gular public serv
ices arle operated.
('ARlRY GOOD) WRENCH
Only a practical hand can instinct
ively feel that a nut has been pulled
tml as tightly as is good for the bolt.
SA clumsy wreuch, particularly if
lthe hanudle is long, is almost sure to
lead to rough treatment of the small
er bolts at the hands of the novice.
WARtP MAY C('AI'E LEAK
If Ihere is a lack of compression,
and on ex.uination the valve heads
seem clean and perfect, give the
valve sitems a careful looking over
lto seec if they have not become
I warped by the intense heat of that
part of the engine.
\lWHEN ITHE MO)TOI IS WORN.
The addition of a little pure flake
graphile to the lubricating oil is a
Shelp 'o motors that have seen some
Swear. Only pure motor graphite
sihould be used. It forms on the
metal surfaces, reducing wear and
filling up scores in the cylinders.
. Learn to judge distances and speed
at which a car travels. Ability to es
timate speed may prevent accidents.
