THE COCONINO SUN
The real value of a motor lubricant can be determined
In only one way through Its use In the engine for
which It Is Intended.
Hence this company maintains an engine-testing lab
oratory, equipped with a Sprague dynamometer, In which
Zerolene and other lubricants are constantly being tested
under actual operating conditions.
This dynamometer laboratory is in charge of competent
traiiad men, who spend all their time in conducting
comparative tests of Zerolene and other lubricants in
automobile, airplane, marine, truck and tractor engines.
Corrett Lubrication Recommendations
. On the results of these tests, supplemented by equally
, careful tests In the field and on the road, our Board of
Lubrication Engineers bases its Chart of Recommen
dations Close attention is given to the design and construction
of the engine. It is necessary to jtnow, first, the speed '
of the bearing surfaces; second, clearance between bear
ing surfaces; third, temperatures at which bearings
operate; fourth, pressures exerted in each bearing;
fifth, the means provided for the distribution of the oil
,.-Z s. to each bearing.
The recommendations embodied in the Zerolene Chart
are calculated with the greatest precision, and if Zero,
lene Is used in accordance with them, correct lubrica
tion and maximum fuel mileage are assured.

early winter, usually characterized by
a clear or cloudless sky and by a hazy
or smoky appearance of the atmos
phere, especially near the horizon.
Usually occurs in October or Novem
ber. Then old Webster goes on to
say that the origin of the name is un
known and that in England it is call
ed "St. Martin's summer," and, some
times "St. Luke's summer," or "the
little summer of St. Luke," according
to whether it happens nearest St. Mar
