Trouble In the starting and light- t
ing system Is something that fills h
ie the soul of the average car owner o
in with dread. Tet a careful look at c
^ the wiring diagram of his car will a
11 serve to unravel most difficulties. d
especially If he understands a few v
In basic principles, which we purpose a
i<- explaining in this story. The elec- h
trip starting and lighting system of s
the car usually consists of a gen- *
erator and starring motor, either
separate or Included in a single
unit: a storage battery, which is
charged by the generator and then
r~ feeds its current to the starting mo- ^
,d tor and to the lamps. Then there b
18 is a cutout which connects and dis>f
connects the generator to or from
the battery at slow engine speeds.
:e and there is also a device to regur
late 'he charging rate to conform
le to the service usually demanded of *
e '-he car. These, with various wires. *'
switches, lamps, etc.. complete this
* RrclM With Meter. *>
t- To begin with there Is mounted *
n on the dash of the modern car a ?
,o meter of some type to regulate the "
,t c harge and discharge of the battery 11
so that the driver can tell how the
lt starting and lighting system Is n
cr functioning. When the starting
?. pedal is depressed the meter begins c?
to register discharge because the lc
battery is being drawn upon for gl
current to turn the starting motor tr
over. ^ w
s Sometimes the meter gets out of in
e order. When the motor is not runn
ning and when the lights are not ..j
I. burning, the rand of the meter Tl
d should regi.<ter xero. If it does not m
g so register the hand is bent or the
e magnet of the Instrument may be
d weak or the return spring may not
\e be strong enough. If the error is tl
it nore than a trifling one the meter g<
o should be inspected Internally. In
Vibration and excessive voltage ca
n sometimes cause derangement in
n these meters, and in this case the ^
?r car owner had better take the initrument
to the service station.
.s !\o Mechanical Troable*. ot
a It is not often that mechanical di
troubles afTllct the starting and m
y lighting system. Wear in the bear- lo
ings of the generator and starting ra
t' motor is the commonest mechanical ae
is ill. Sometimes there Is trouble in th
e the linkage or in the gearing and se
I* in the mechanical governor. With
e these troubles the car owner can |n
ie cope just as easily as those in other t,
e parts of the mechanism. lc
Electrical troubles obviously are ar
among the commonest that occur in m
this system, and they are mostly
? caused by open circuits or shorts.
In the former case there will be no ^
flow of current at all. while In the
latter the flow will be in the wrong
direction, whereby the actual work p
d of the system is slighted, as when
, one uncovered wire touches aaother "c
on a different circuit. J*
n It is necessary to inspect the entire
wiring system at frequent in- b?
1 tervals, because open circuits and gl
s shorts are likely to occur at any
time. The chaflng through of the
insulation of a wire is enough to
a prevent the current from flowing to
I the place whtre it is needed. (Ton t
stant vigilance is the price of start- JL1
ing and lighting efficiency.
r? Twe Method* Used.
* There are two methods of running
the wires from the battery to the n,
lamps, etc.. known respectively as cc
y single and double wiring. In the
double wiring system two wires are
yt used, one to carry the current to J
' its place, where it is needed, and \
another to bring it back to the bat?
tery. In the single wire system one
& wire carries the current out, while
lc the return is accomplished through
rs the metal of the car's frame. If
k the wire of a single wire system Is
g strtpped of its insulation and
d touches the metal of the car a phort
0 circuit is established, and the part
served by that wire will not operate
at all . If it is a lamp it will not bum.
In the two-wire system a short
does not form so easily; as two
wires must be out of business to
1 cause it.
The terminals are a source of
e great trouble in this system. One
p poor terminal connection may put
_ the whole system out of order, or
B It may simply prevent one' of the
B units working properly. In cas? ot
. trouble Inspect these parts.
If the starting motor does not
" turn the engine over snapplly. and
? if the lights do not burn with due
'? radiance, the trouble Is probably
chusedyby the battery. If the lamns
r do not burn properly, but the starte
er seems to b? working all right.
- obviously the lighting end of the
system should be inspected.

A public pronouncement from

Already Secretary of State Hughes

Secretary Hughes is believed to
have received this word from Col.
George Harvey. American ambassador
to London, yesterday. He went
immediately to the White House to
confer with President Hsrding. and
later in the day he visited the President
again, when he is believed to
have presented to Mr. Harding for
final approval the action he intends
to take on the word from London.

advisability" of a disarmament conference.
It was learned last night that <
some consideration was given to
making public the decision of President

but desire was expressed that first
this decision be communicated to
London and Tokio.
The clear information that developments

ZONES OF SAFETY
IN SCOn CIRCLE
Compulsory Routing of
Autos Lessens Perils
No longer do pedestrians, and
autoiats. too. for that matter, get
themselves into precarious situations
when croasing from the sidewalk
to the center of Scott Circle,
with fleets of moving automobiles
encircling the circle from six different
directions. The pedestrians
have received a new lease on life,
aa It were, in the shape of a fivefoot
platform which has been constructed
in the center of the street
around the circle.
The route which thoughtful motorists
now take in their brief trip
through the circle is dependent
upon the source of the entrance
into the circle and al o the street
by which they leave the circle. The
two platforms, one on the east side
and the other on the west side of
the circle are clipped off at thair
projection at the east and west
sides of Sixteenth street.
fc*?rtherly Co?r?e luaMe.
The motorist traveling north on
Sixteenth and who Intends to continue
along Sixteenth street, steers
his car into the inner side of the
circular platform and thua makes
his exit Into Sixteenth street. If.
however, he chooaes to go out Khode
Island avenue, or Massachusetts
avenue toward the eaat. then he
takes the outer half of the divided
street. Should he desire to make
his exit at either avenue on the
west side, then he makes his trip
round the circle on the inside of
the platform to where Sixteenth
street joins the circle, when he
then travels along the outer edge
to his exit.
If the motorist is westbound on
Massachusetts or Rhode Island avenue.
then he travels along the outer
edge around the circle until he
arrives at hla choaen street, provided
that that street is either of
the avenues. If he enters from the
east from either of the avenues and
desires to go south on Sixteenth
street, then he follows the principle
of taking thf outer edge to a spot
In the center of Sixteenth street on
the north and then he turns Int^
the inner side of the platform and
Anally out Sixteenth atraat.
Provides Safety Ksais,
The value of the platforms aa
safety guards to the pedestrian who
feels he must cross over to the circle.
or from the circle acroae to one
of the entering streets, can readily
be understood. The trip of slxty?flvc
feet across the street is divided Into
two thirty-foot spaces. Net many
autos will ride abreas* on a thirtyfoot
atreet, particularly in this circle.
and thua the pedestrian is relieved
Crom the care of dodging
three or four autos simultaneously
together with thla aafe-guard rt
