At Least 75 Per Cent of Grade
Crossing Casualties Could
BRIEF REVIEW 3F SITUATION
Most Common Cause Ib Inability of
Orlver of Motor to See Approach-'
Ing Train Many Remedies f
arc Recommended. .'
Commenting on the iiimual report
o Commissioner Gordon of the Cali
fornia Stnle Railroad commission,
Goml Roads says:
"lleforo considering tho remedies for
crossing accidents 11 may bo profitable
to review tho situation briefly. In the
llrst place we uro warranted in assum
ing that n very largo proportion, cer-
tnlnly 75 per cent, of such accidents
uro avoidable. In tliu second place It
seems evident that, excepting cnroless
ness mid a few unusual causes such us
losing control of tho car because of
somo failure In tho mechanism or u
sudden physical disability of tho driv
er, the most common if not Iho only
real ciui'e for a crossing accident la
the Inability of a driver to see mi ap
proaching train. It Is Impossible, of
course, to provide ngulnst tho unusual
accidents tlmt may occasionally occur.
It Is left then to llnd remedies for tho
must common causes reckless driv
ing which accounts for tho major por
tion of tho accidents, ami the Inabil
ity to see approaching trains.
Only Sure Remedy.
"Tho only sure remedy Is tho &;
ration of the grades at wicti ImVrsec
tlon, niul notliliiv should be allowed
to Interfere with tho accomplishment
of this as fust us possible with tho
funds available. Hut this work will
take time because of Its great cost. To
effect u separation of erodes at all
highway nnd railway Intersections In
California nlnne, according to Com
iiilslmicr (iordim'H statistics, would
cost over $.".00,000,000, an expenditure
which, us he pointed out, neither tho
public nor the railroads could uffonl.
"Leaving elimination out of consid
eration, there are utlll many remedies.
The more common ones Incluilo tho In
Htnllatlon of gates, tho stationing of
flagmen, and the erection of mechanical
warning slgrulsl of vnrlous kinds.
Gates, according to Commissioner Gor
don, cost about $700 to Install and
about $000 yearly for operation and
maintenance j llaguien cost about
$000 yearly, anil automatic signals
from $.T0 to $000 for Installation and
from $21 to $1120 iinnually for main
tennnc. These figures tiro presum
ably for California, but they will servo
as Indications of tho cost elsewhere,
and they show that even tho cheapest
and probably least effect I vo of these
remedies Is too expensive to permit

"We luivo been loading our logs on

"The illfl'erence In cost of operat
ing the drum nnd what It would cost
to feed n pair of mules would pay
for n ilium In u hort while. You
can make no comjmrlson of the cost
of civlng by hauling with truck nnd
tennis, for tho difference between the
two will pay for u truck In n thort

E. V. CojJInoof the Kansas Stnto
Hot Water Over.
friiii easiest wny to ovcrcomo (dart
ing dlfllcultlcs with an automobile In
(old weather Is to apply beat to the
Intake manifold, In thu opinion of E.
V. Collins, Instructor In steam and gas
engineering in tho Kansas Statu Agri
Trouble In stnrtlng a car In cold
weather Is generally duo to tho fact
that tho ordinary low grade of gas
oline will not vaporize readily at low
Tho Intake plpo leading from the
cnrburStor Is usually vertical so that
giisollno will not pass through unless
It Is vaporized. Tho velocity of ulr
through tho carburetor and Intake
plpo will hold the atomized gas In sus
pension when tho motor la once
IJy applying heat to tho Intake man
ifold enough Mould will be vaporized
so that the motor will start readily.
In this case thu entire mixture I
warmed rather than Just the gasoline.
Iletter results will bo obtained than
where tho motor Is prlineit with heated
gasoline and the ulr Is allowed to en
ter'tbo cylinders cold.
Tho simplest way to apply heat to
the ninnlfrihl Is to pour hot water over
It, enro being taken not to get It Into
tho carburetor. Putting hot water Into
tho cooling system warms tho cylin
der walls but does not help to get the
nilxturo from the carburetor to th.
cylinder and should not bo necessary
If tho Intake Is warmed.
