Tant and Cooking Kit An Oampln* out it one of the great privileges available to all who motor and at this season thousands of mo tor car owners are planning their ex pedition afield. For those who expect to enjoy ramp life for the first time, the Touring Bureau of the National Au tomobile club, California, Issued a few suggestions. Here they are: Travel light. Is the first rule of camping equipment. Don't attempt to carry all the household furniture along If yon really want to enjoy your outing. The essentials Include a good tent a comfortable bed arrangement within the car; a good stove, beds and bedding, a cqppnct kit of kitchen utensils and a fevHtools. Good Tent Essential. The choice of a tent Is Important. The tent should be light, compact and easily erected. A canvas floor is well worth while and tent pegs should be of metal. Cots, folding Into small form, are better than heavier springs. Folding mattresses add to the com fort of the night's rest. Blankets are easily carried and pack well. Take plenty of bedding, as nights In the mountains even in midsummer are usually cool. The real .woodsman would probably acorn an up-to-date stove of the gus or * LEFT SIDE SAFE ON THE HIGHWAY Parents Also Urged to Cau tion Children Against Begging for Rides. With the summer outing season In full swing, pedestrians on the high ways are urged to follow the rule of walking on the left side, in a Minne sota highway bulletin. "Walking on the left side of the road has been advocated for some time by police and highway officials who have made a study of automobile ac cidents, yet a large number of people continue to use the right side of the road when walking," says the bulletin. This makes It Inqmsslble for them fo see vehicles approaching on their side of the road. The motorist may see the pedestrians, but he can never be sure which way they are going to turn. Just as he Is about to pahs a hiker, It may be Impossible for him to turn out without striking one of them. Baggirp for Rides. "The habit of asking for rides should also be discouraged. Police In a num ber of cities have often Issued warn ings against the practice. Most motor ists would be glad to give pedestrians an occasional lift, but the habit of asking for rides has been so much abased that many drivers as a matter of self-protection refuse all requests to give stranger* a ride, should be urged to-caution their chil dren against asking for rides. practice is exceedingly dangerous when youngsters stand In the traveled portion of the street or highway and If he meets another vehicle Parents The signal for a ride." Pedestrian* Involved. An analysis of the motor vehicle accidents made for the recent Hoover safety conference showed that pedes trians were Involved In 29.982 out of 47,128 accidenta reported Id the state of New York In 1925, and that of 1, 891 persons killed. 1,155 were pedes trians. The report further shows that 50 per cent of the motor vehicle accidents and 65 per cent of the fatali ties occurred on straight, level roads. Adjusting Motoqieter Is - Rather Difficult Task —-ft—* proper way to collect the fluid io the indicating tube of the mototueter, if it becomes separated, is to stick the stem of the instrument in boiling wa ter. This Is an erroneous opinion, as it will never gather the fluid. The fluid is separated due to the fact that the Instrument was left lying on Us side anfl air bubble* formed. It re mains separated unUI It ts restored to perfect working order, even though the Instrument la put in an upright position. 7~ Thla Is correctly accomplished by holding the ntotometer in an upright position and quickly tapping the bot tom of the instrument on the spare tire of the car until the liquid la gath the Important for Camping Out. ollne type such as is now turned out by the camp goods factories, bat wood Is scarce la many of our forest re serves, and the path of easiest re sistance is to provide yourself with a dependable stove with folding oven attached. The gasoljne stove Is Ideal, particularly for short trips, and the camp fire doesn't have to be disturbed for meals. Cooking Kit. A complete cooking kit of aluminum utensils nesting Into the largest pan makes for camp efficiency and occu pies the least room. Food should be carried in tin cans and a vacuum bot tle comes in handy for a hot lunch along the way between camp grounds or out on a hike. Don't carry with you articles of value. It's far cheaper to Invest In a complete camp cooking outfit and use It only for camping expeditions than to leave some of the family sil ver out In some remote part. A water bag should be a part of the camp equipment, and extra gas oline and oil carried on the running board Is a safeguard against trouble and delay. .The lighter you travel, provided you hare the essentials along, the easier It will be on car and passen gers and the more enjoyment you will gat from your expedition. Schoolboys Make Novel Safety Street Device To Insure motorists observing the sign, "School Street" "Slow Down," In front of their schoolhouse. boys of SCHOOL SlWl mi 'It,. 1 Ain Protection Agalnat Motoriste, a carpentering class of San Diego (Calif.) school have built this unique dummy and firmly Implanted it In the middle of the street. At first glance it appears to be a policeman holding aloft the warning sign. Coat of Running a Car Not Fixed by Cylinders Engineers have debated the relative cost of operation of an eight-cylinder motor as against the six . He re is the comment of one expert: "The ex pense of running a motor doesn't de pend so much on the number of cyl inders as It does on the number of cubic inches of piston displacement. "Take a given piston displacement and divide it up any way you want to. Into two cylinders, four cylinders, six or eight cylinders and you will use Just about the same amount of gns. "Of course, the greater the number of cylinders, the more overlapping of power impulses occurs and the smooth er the operation of the motor. But don't make the mistake of thinking that additional cylinders mean addi tional expense, unless the piston dis placement is Increased." AUTOMOBILE HINTS The mythical "man In the street" la no myth to, the driver who is try ing to keep bis record clean. At night a parked car should have i It* lights turned on to show a whit« I light ahead and a red one behind. • • Seventy-six per, cent of all motor cars sold In the United State* are bought on the deferred-payment plan.
