A Valle, who h.is been an agitator

"Thla would naturally call Into be

that this has not been done before.

‘'Moreover, speaking generally. It
Is not good for golf or any ether
game to let the festoons of cobwebs
cluster too thickly about it as iho

Valle also takes the governing
body abroad to task for barring th**
Schenectady putter, used by Jerome

law* stands now there is hardly a
legal club In any hag at any tourna

CANTILEVER
SPRING MAKES
CAR RIDE EASILY
—i. w i It XNkl.l V
•'Almost every umomobiliat today
iec tig nixes a cantilever spring on
sight This construction, which ha
been generally adopted by those
manufacturers who build the best, is
tamiliar to nearly all of us, but
how many drivers really know why
a cantilever spring maket* a iar
ride easier than othei types of rear
suspension ?”
G W Franklin, local Dort dlstrlb
Utor, recently in;*tie- the above State
menu which In* accompanied with
an inteif-Ming explanation of th*
woiwii g- ot the cantilever spring as
be r-e* I hem
An automobile engineer,” says
Mr Franklin, "would probably de
scribe a * antilever spring with
ma::> technical terms, but this is a
little too deep for the average man.
M> uii idt a of th** cantilever spring
Is a >ptmg that is so anchored «>r
attached to th*- cha. -is, that the re
bound of the spring is downward
Instead of upward Thus the occu
pants of the car get the benefit of
th** fl* xing of the springs when road
shocks are encountered and the
downward rebound of the springs
tend.- to keep ihe rear wheels of the
car on the ground, instead of lifting
th**m dear of the toad, as is the
case with the semi-elliptic, three
quarter elliptic or full-elliptic spring
This means not only easier riding,
but less wear on the tires as the
rear wheels are kept on the ground
practically all the time.
"The length of the spring has con
siderable to do with its riding qual
ities, and a long, wide spring is par
ticularly desirable. Mr Blanche, the
chief engineer and designer of ft-e
Dort, has taken advantage of This,
In the full cantilever springs that
form the rear suspension of his car.
and has made these very wide and
r>o 1-8 inches long This relation of
spring length to chassis and wheel
base js exceptional, being greater
than in any other car at anywhere
near the Dort price, and it has much
to do with the flno riding qualities
of this car.”
