NEW PISTONS ARE
FINE FEATURE FOR
ALL COLE MODELS
Constant Clearance Under
All Speeds Assured
Reveals Greater Value of Cole
Aero-Eights at Lower
Cole Aero-Eights, even though reduced
in price $700 to $455, aetuallq
I cost $200 more to build than any
Exclusive refinements and improvements
which make the new
Cole the greatest value this company
has ever produced are the result
of J. J. Cole's interpretation of
the present demand- as something
more than a mere reduction In price.
To those building for permanent
success rather than temporary advantage.
Mr. Cole believes a reduction
in quality in keeping with the
reduction In price will be fatal. The
advance of the motor car toward me-(
chanical perfection must continue.
Can Meet Demandn.
Only a company so fortunately
situated as is the Cole, with its large j
resources and its opportunities for
manufacturing economies, due to
large, well organized facilities, can
meet the demand tor lower prices
with a car greater in quality than
any previous models.
Chief of the refinements in the
new Cole Aero-Eight, which make it
cost $200 more to build, is the constant
clearance piston of aluminum,
with which, official tests have proved.
new and unseasoned motors can j
be operated at maximum speeds
without damage to motors.
The tests of the constant clear- j
ance piston, designed and constructed
by the Cole Company, were held
on the Indianapolis speedway under
official A. A. A. supervision. Three
new cars were used.
Proved by Tefta.
The tests proved that pistons can I
be so designed and constructed that
they will be uniform in sixe and interchangeable
from one motor to
another without the tedious process j
now universal in the industry of I
With the new "constant clear-!
ance'* piston there Is no fitting by
hand by expert mechanics. They are I
simply slipped into the motor, solving
at one and the same time not
only one of the most troublesome j
service problems, but one of ..he
most expensive as well.
The Interchangeability of the new
"constant clearance" piston was
demonstrated at the Indianapolis
speedway on the second day of the
testa run there.
On the second day the motors of
the three new Cole Aero-Eights used
were torn down. The piston assemblies
were extracted. A. A. A. Technical
Representatives Chester Ricker
and W. C. Buser redistributed the
pistons so that no car received the
same pistons it was equipped with j
Pistons All Ckanged.
The motors, with changed piston
assemblies, were then re-assembled.
Two mechanics in one case had the
. motor in operation 1 hour and 35
minutes after they started, a tribute
to the accessibility of the Cole |
motor. All of the motors were re- j
assembled and in operation In less
[ than tw0 hours.
The cars were put through a series
of accelerat. ?? tests from 10 to 15
miles and -. oerated at maximum |
speeds for sustained periods. Despite
the fact that no car had its
k original pistons, the performance of
the day before was duplicated in
every instance, and bettered in some
In the high speed tests there was
no seizing or slapping of pistons, and
measurements taken orv the third

representatives, proved that bearings
and other working parts had
not suffered in the slightest.
Average of Three.
L In the acceleration tests the averse*
of each car for six tests was
tak^n. and the grand average for the
three cars and eighteen tests figured.
It was found by A. A. A. representatives
that acceleration averages
for ca<h of the three cars was
less than three-tenths of a second
off the grand average of all thre??
cars, showing a convincing uniformity
Tli#* high speed tests showed an
'rage for the three cars of 61.8
miles per hour. And these speeds I
w?-re sustained for half-mile periods
without damage to the new motors. J

The day of the horse is passing i

The cost records of the horse I
compared with the records of the
motor vehicle in several recent,
carefully checked tests, show that
the use of power equipment cuts
the cost of lot; hauling as high as
70 per cent.
These figures were presented by
practical woodsmen during the recent
convention of the woodlands
section of the American Paper and
Pulp Association, who have been
forced to substitute power operations
for animal hauling by the
greater economy of the motor hauler.
The figures given by these opera- ]

operations as to woods camps of

Here is a simple method of carrying

when equipment Is not provided
for this purpose. On the front
of the running board six small strap i
loops may be fastened by wood !
j screws. Two loops are set in at j
the rear edge or the board about
twenty inches apart. Another two
are set crosswise on the board a
convenient distance apart. This ..s
governed by the size of the packirg j
that Is being considered.
The remaining two are located at
the rront edge of the board on ll?
under side. The reason fo? this is
that it permits the parcel or baggage
to overhang the board, and In
this way a larger one can be car- riec
than would be possible other- I

ranged to tie or strap over the
bundle, the ends being threaded
