tuted for Tben ia Car CoBstraetloa.
"Motor car manufacturers of today
place too much emphasis on the com
fort of the traveler alone," said
R. W. Selvidge, who lectured to the
class in automobile engineering last
night "The motor must have com
fort too. It is not uncommon to see
upholstering from 11 (to 14 inches
thick In modern motor cars. There
should be more of the shock taken
np by the springs rather than by the
upholstery. The explanation for the
neglect of the motor, by having stiff
springs on the car, is that it is the
traveler who buys the car, conse
quently he must be made comfortable.
All the motor is supposed to do is to
pull the car.
"A motor car must have strong
wheels to withstand the shocks of
the road. There is a great strain on
a wheel when the car strikes a high
place In the road or goes rapidly
around a corner. The artillery wheel
is the most common type. This wheel
has a steel hub, white oak or hickory
spokes and an ash rim.
"Manufacturers have been able to
make a pressed steel wheel which Is
stronger and lighter than the wood
wheel. It is not used much, however,
because it often breaks during cold
weather. Wire wheels, .built on the
principle of bicycle wheels, have
been used to some extent. This type
is used in France quite extensively.
"Almost every man who has had
anything to do with the manufacture
of wheels has tried to make a resllent
wheel with the idea of doing away
with the pneumatic tire and Its trou
bles. So far there has been little

disease. The visiting nurse now has
fifty-six patients on her list
"Tubercular persons are often able
to do light work. They are frequent
ly employed in restaurants to handle
our food. In Columbia one boy with
tuberculosis was found employed as
a waiter in a fraternity house.
"What are we to do in cases like
this? A mother recently died in Col
umbia of tuberculosis leaving four
small children. One of these has tu
berculosis. There Is not a place In
the county where the child can be
cared for . The sanitorium at Mt
Vernon, Mo., will Hold all the patients
from only three counties in the state.
Yet so long as tubercular persons are
not segregated your children and my
children are exposed to the disease.
The county tuberculosis hospital is
a necessity for the care of those who
have tuberculosis as well as the pro
tection of those who do not have it."
MANY TAKE GYM WORK
Eight Instructors Handle Nearly 2000
Men Each Week.
Eighteen hundred and fifty men a
week. That is the estimate that the
instructors at the gymnasium have
made for the present semester. Of
course, the attendance was not this high
at first, but it has steadily gone up
until that many attend classes there
every week. From a corps of four In
structors last year, the force has been
Increased to eight at the present time.
The only hour in the day from 10
a. m. to 9 p. m. that isn't taken up
with work, is between 2 and 3 o'clock.
Eery other hour shows at least one
class scheduled and, for the most of
the hours, there are two or more
classes, each under a different in
structor. The largest single class regularly
scheduled is the dancing class. This
is held on Mondays, Wednesdays and
Fridays from 5 to 6 o'clock and there
are between 60 and 70 In it. Next to
this comes the boxing and wrestling
classes, in each of which there are
from 50 to 60 members. New instruc
tors will soon be added to give the
From the men taking boxing and
wrestling, there will be picked a team

University teams some time during
the winter. Tournaments will be held
first between the men in the classes
to determine the teams.
