SESSION PLANS RBIVE
AGAINST THEFT OF CARS
Conference to Ask for Legis
lation in All States to
Conserted action directed toward
the abatement of automobile stealing
and the improvement of highways
will be taken by the national asso
cia~ions, representing owners, deal
ers and mataufacturers, as the result
of a conference held Sept. 9 at the
offices of the National Automobile
Chamber of Commerce in New York
To curb stealing they will alsk
for legislation in all states to protect
car users and will urge that the Dyer
bill be passed by congress making it
a felony to take a stolen car from one
state to another, punishable by im
prisonment of not less than two
years nor more than ten. In the di
rection of obtaining better roads they
will indorse the Townsend bill and
encourage everywhere permanent
types of highways for motor vehicle
Another bill that will have their
support will be the Volstead bill, a
prohibition measure which, through
the efforts of the National Automo
bile Dealers association, has been
amended so as to protect dealers who
hold mortgages on automobiles con
fiscated for carrying liquor.
The contemplated co-ordination of
effort was brought about by the
growing insistence of automobile
users everywhere for more uniform
and effective legislation bearing on
the needs mentioned. It was recog
nized by all present that duplication
of effort could be avoided and the
facts presented more clearly to the
public through co-operation than
through independent effort. It was
also' felt that in this manner legis
lators could be supplied with basic
information which they desire now,
but which has not been readily avail
able in the past as to the best means
of procedure to gain the desired ends.
The conclusions of the meeting
were that a conference committee
should be formed of a representative
and an alternate appointed by each
association and that this committee
should draw up a plan of action and
complete the details following out
the general scheme outlined at this
meeting. The committee is to hold
meetings at stated intervals to inii
ate campaigns to be conducted by
each association in d.e pen d e n t 1 v
through its members and otlhers in
the same field, enlisting the co-op
eration of the trade and daily press.

PARCEL POST TRUCK TO PROVE

WVashington.-The postoffice de

states, and at the same time demon

the farmer and small-town merchant

means of the parcel post.
At the present time there are sev
eral parcel post deliveries of this
character in and out of Washington
every day and the national capital
is cited as furnishing an illustration
of what may be accomplished else
where. All routes tap fertile farming
country and are the means of bring

Feature at Springs
The Rocky Mountain Automobile
Trades association convention in Col- I
orado Springs. Oct. 6, 7 and 8, is not
to be an affair of all work and no
play. Neither is it to be a stag affair,
according to the committee in charge
of the entertainment features. All
the dealers have been notified that
they are expected to take their wives. 1
and a number of special entertain
ments have been planned for the 1
The Broadmoor hotel will be the
convention headquarters. Besides
luncheon and dinners, an elaborate
ball is to he given here. While the
men are attending the convention,
the women will be entertained with
tea parties in the hotel and will be
taken on motor trips through the
environs of Colorado Springs.
A motor trip up Pikes peak, a visil
to the Cave of the Winds and the
Witches' cave, where a unique lunch

South Cheyenne canyon to the Seven

On the other hand, with the pump
system there is not tmuch danger of
over-heating due to stoppage of the
system because the positive action of
the pump forces the water around
and prevents the tying up of the.sys

But when anything goes wrong
with the pump the system at once
ceases to circulate the water, which
immediately boils, with the usual
consequences. By opening the drain
of the pump system and observing
the rate at which the water pours
out one can get an accurate line on
the way in which the device is func
TO ASSEMBLE REAR AXLE
If the rear axle of a car comes off
for repairs, then it is generally nec
essary to readjust the axle, before re
placement. This can he dolne very
easily if the following method is used.
Place the axle on two wooden blocks
which are secured to the floor and
clamp the axle to the blocks by pieces
of strap iron or ancy other convenient
fastener. Then secure to the forward
end of the shaft a pulley which can
be supported in a bracket. From one
of the idle pulleys on the lineshaft
overhead a belt can be run to this
lower pulley. The axle now can he
adjusted to a running fit, and the
hum can be eliminated entirely.

Benjamin Franklin at the Court of
Louis XVI. In 1776. on Sept. 26,
the American congress appointed thiis

American Eagle at that date saw a

fires-thirteen blazes-running along
his flag, but the United States had
not yet been acknowledged by any
power. Benjamin Franklin succeeded
in his great work, and negotiated a
treaty with France. He was fitted
to face the age-old splendor of dying
monarchies. He might have used,
upon this occasion, his exalted words:

IN MOTOR TRUCKS

Clares Clyde Official.
Clyde, O.--"There are many peo
ple who consider that the farmer can
be sold most any kind of a motor
truck so long as it has four wheels
and will run, but they are all wrong,"
says A. C. Burch, vice president of
the Clyde Cars company, Clyde, O.
"It's a safe bet that the farmer
knows more about motor trycks than
the average man in any other line of
business. Hle is an old hand at me

make his own repairs. When a piece
of farm machinery breaks down dur

to run to a service station. He gets'

"So when IMr. Farmer starts out to
buy a motor truck the chances are
that he knows just exactly what he
needs and what he wants, and he is
going to get it.
"And furthermore, the farmer
buys a motor truck for a definite
purpose. It is quite an investment
and he intends that the investment
will pay dividends. And one of the
best ways to make it pay, he realizes,
is to take the proper care of it so
that it will last longer and give bet
"One of our Clydesdale dealers

question nor said a word, but put the
folder in his pocket and walked out.
There is a man who absorbed every

THINS TO WORDY ABOUTI
The car owner should keep in mind
that one of the most prolific causes
of engine overheating is driving on a
retarded spark. The cause is obvious, v
the explosion taking place when a
maximum of the cylinder wall is un
covered instead of the minimum, as
is the case when the ignition takes
place at uipper dead center, the piston
being at the top of its stroke.
An admirable idea in the arrange- be
ment of tools in the home garage is h;
to give each tool a number, which is t
painti : it. The same number is
paints, .i the walls or racks in the
place where the tool belongs. In this
way it is a simple matter to return
each tool to its proper place so that lI
it is ready when it is next needed. rt
Lack of attention to the way the
rear wheels are running is a source
of subsequent financial loss to auto
mobilists. It seems that nowadays,
there are more cars with wobbly rear
wheels than ever before. This may h
be because the demountable rim lugs
are not fully clinched up so that the
wheels run evenly. It all makes for
wear on tires and shortens their life. to
From the back it gives the car, as it i
moves away, a, sort of pacing gait. d
The front wheels are running in one
lilrs and the rear wheels are wabbling a
in another. This racking motion jars
the daylight out of the passengers. g
Operating the engine without suffi- I 1
cient water or with no water at all,
may result in injury to the spark
plugs. To give service without crack- a
ing the plugs must be properly cooled a
and provision for this is generally
made in the water jacketing system.
When the water runs low the plugs
become hotter and there is great dan
get'er of their being damaged.
To tackle a valve replacement
single handed when you have not a
valve lifting device is not easy until
Syou kinow how. There is, however, al
simple way of doing it. Simply in
terpose a piece of packing (almost
anything will do) between the valve
cup and the valve head; refix the
valve cap and then the packing will
prevent the valve's rising. It is then
a comparatively easy matter to lift
the string, take out tihe cotter, etc.
A little dust on the body or hood
is a constant irritation to the new!
owner and so he wilpes it off with a
cloth, grinding the grit into the polish
and soon spoiling the finish. A light
dust brush of fine hair may be used,
hut the only satisfactory way to re
move dirt is to flow water on it.
Cart' owners should be reminded
that shellac is not satisfactory for
ipainting rims; it peals off too quick
ly. Graphite paint is better for this
purpose and even ordinary paint is
to be preferredt to shellac.
In many of the older car models
no means of adjusting the valve !
clearance is provided. Ily slipping one
or more fiber or metal disks of suf
ficient thickness to make up the ex
Icessive eplay between the bottom of
the valve stem and the push rod this
trouble may be obviated.

Writer Discusses Feminine
Motoring Apparel. Don't
Need Trunkload of Clothes
What shall I wear?
Eternally feminine, this questidii
bothers the woman motor tourist per
haps more than the cost of gasoline,
the condition of the grease cups or
the rattle in the engine.
Comes now a woman with informa
tion that comfortable touring may
be accomplished with a small ward
robe. This comfort, she declares,
does not include sacrifice of wom
anly charms or appearances.
The Chevrolet Review prints the
following account by Male A. Hich
The main thing for the woman mo
torist to discover when touring is
how little she can travel with in
stead of how much she can take. It
is quite possible for any woman to
tour for six or eight weeks without
a trunkful of clothes and yet be
Idainty and fresh, and there is cer
tainly no better way to make oneself
a welcome companion.
First of all, a word as to coats. A
good cover-all of wool is a neces
sity, as is also a lightweight dust
coat of mohair, silk or linen. All
the very new coat models show that
they are being built on straight but
ample lines, with the belt placed
about half way between the hip and
the knee, or else the model is un
belted. In the latter case, there is a
loose back, side closing, and very
frequently a cupping in at the hem.
They have very deep cape collars,
and the sleeves are invariably set in
t with a deep armhole, or are shirred
to a low dropped shoulder. Browns,
I shading from tete de negre to the
lightest tan, are decidedly strong and
there is not the slightest doubt that
t browns are to be the prominent col
ors for fall and winter. The greens
are also good, especially in soft
shades of olive and jade.
Now as to gowns. The motor
woman should be provided with sev
eral, and for each tour select the
ones befitting the occasion. A.coat
and-skirt shirt-waist suit of serge
does excellently for motor picnic
trips during summer, when the coat
worn under the long duster will. be
t warm enough for riding and can he
laid away afterward. For short trips
out of town, the gowns of the modish
rough silks are adorable and in the
white or natural may be tubbed re
peatedly and always present. :tbe
same smart and attractive appear
ance. The lovely ginghams are ap
preciated by the knowing woman for
extremely hot, dusty weather, as they
imay be freshly Laundered whenever

case. with its equipment of toilet'
articles, soap, violet water, cold
cream, etc., play an important part.
A couple of good towels should be
added. No one can ever be too sure
s of good towels and especially when
stopping at rural hotels. A few
handkerchiefs, a fresh pair of stock
e ings, and the nightdress go into very
small space, and probably leave room
for the dressing-gown, which will be
greatly appreciated at night when the
motor woman, usually tired, enjoys a
few moments' relaxation before re
tiring. Bedroom slippers made from
ribbon which are now so popular will
occupy scarcely any space.
