that the war would start on May 1 l" '

"In starting or stopping a car. when
the power Is applied or the brakes used,
there Is a tendency of the rear axle to
turn with the wheels," declares Wil
liam S. Burger, of the Burger Motor,
Company, distributor of the Haynes
"As was customary with the older de
signers, Instead of using parts already
at hand, an additional part was addd
to the car In the form of a long heavy
bar. This bar extended from the axle
to the frame and prevented the turning
of the axle.
"Tn the latest designs, the Hotchklss
drive Is used. This term Is applied to
the driving system where tho rear
springs take both the drive and torque
of the rear axle. In other words, there
Is no torque bar extending between the
rear axle and the frame of the car
"Two rear springs keep the axle from
turning. Greater simplicity and flexi
bility are obtained. The axle Is sub
jected to no sudden shock because the
construction Is slightly yielding. The
springs take up the Jerks on the axle.
"An attempt is made in the torque
bar construction to obtain a yielding
action by carrying the forward end be
tween two short coll springs, but tho
construction Is clumsy and heay at
best and the rear axle must bear great,
er Jerks and shocks than can be given
It with the Hotchklss drive system,
which consists of nothing moro than
two long flexible arms In place of the
ono rigid bar."
