well a fiihtlnff craft, and whatever
types of planca are developed abroad,
whether they are two-seated or
three-seated or ly-flylns armored ma
chines, the allies will have motors
enough to eulp them.
Text of Motor.
I saw them test out a Llbcrty.mo
tor at the Lincoln plant today, and
with only nine-tenths power It de
veloped more than 400 horsepower,
which means better than 435 with a
full. throttle. Nothing that the Her
mans have can beat that and even
if they copy our Liberty motor they
cannot touch us on quantity produc
tion In fact, if Detroit has any sug
gestions to offer on how to win the
war in the air. It would be to con
centrate on a single type of aero
plane and build Ave times as many
of that kind as Germany can make.
Certainly the quantity production
of motors Is such as to inspire the
greatest confidence In tho outcome of
the war so far as aviation is con
cerned. For day and night bomb
ing is going to be Just as Important
as combat or attack, and some of the
foreign-made bombers are rapidly
being adapted to the use of one and
two Liberty motors. That's the great
advantage of the Liberty engine it
can be used on six out of seven types
of planes and probably will be useful
on any new types hereafter devel
oped. And. while It Is disappointing to
think that not more than -.500
these Liberty motors will got Into
American fighting planes this sum
mer, it is well worth remembering
that the object of America is to help

Xavy Will Ce Them,
Besides the army, of course, the
navy will absorb Liberty motors for
hydroplanes as well as flying boats,
so there is little cause for worry
about the number of Liberty motors
to be available this year.
What they have done here In ono
plant alone that of the Lincoln Mo
tor Company Is really marvelous.
And the finest thing that could hap
pen would be for the Senate Military
Affairs Committee and other members
of Congress to come to Detroit and
have a look for themselves. They

plants abreast of each other, and
three and four floors to a plant. The
genius of II. il. Leland and his son,
who made the Cadillac motor what
It Is today, brought the Lincoln
Motor Company Into being. The
elder Leland started working on gun
chine manufacturing ever since. His
son Is a bundle of nervous energy,
driving power and enthusiasm. That
explains the miracle. What the Pack
ard people have done, and what the
Ford plant with its time-saving pro
duction of cylinders for all the Lib
erty engines, and pretty soon with
Its flow of completed motors. Is a
tale of patriotism. For the automo
bile has been given second place ex
cept for the army truck and am
bulances, and preference is given the
aeroplane motor. All the auto com
panies are diminishing their output
of automobiles, and from a daily
production of 2,500 Fords, the number
has been rut to about 1,500.
All Are enthusiastic
They are all enthusiastic hereabout
the Liberty motor, and I have a
feeling that many of the pople in
the I'aitt who have been throwing
stones at it will be saying nice
things about tho Liberty in a little
II LeBoy Pclletler. who.e name
means much in the engineering pro
fession, has courageously reversed
himself already on the merits of the
Liberty motor, and there will be
many others doing likewise very
Not a small part of the credit for
the achievement must eventually go
to General Pershing, who sent word
last summer that the right-cylinder
motor be abandoned and a twelve
cylinder Liberty be substituted The
British and French were asking for
more horsepower and he cabled, and,
though the engineers here had al
ready built ten of the eight cylinder
type, they shifted at his request This I
meant different connecting rods and '
crank shafts and new sets of tools, j
On February 4, last, the twelve-cylln- I
der Liberty was flnall completed and
production on a quantity basis has
come with remarkable sp-ed.

quick production of Liberty motors,
for when the first thousand were
completed a few days ago a telegram
signed by the Packa'rd Motor Car
Company and the Lincoln Motor Com
pany was sent the Secretary of War,
who wrote an Inspiring letter of com
mendation that was Just received to
day. Of the first thousand more than
COO are in transit to the allies and
the rest were sent to aeroplane fac
tories. In the United States to equip
American-built planes. But hence
forth the great bulk of the produc
tion will be going to England and
France, as already there arc Liberty
motors stacked In rows at the aero
plane factories, waiting for the Dc
Havllands and Caproni planes.
I saw thirty-five Liberty motors,
for instance, at the Fisher Body Cor
poration which has Just finished Its
first battleplane, and should come Into
production in another month at the
rate of forty a day. The Fisher plant
is well equipped, and is going to get
