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.

Parents Also Urged to Cau

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
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
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
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
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

it will never gather the fluid. The
fluid is separated due to the fact that

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.

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
"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."

By means of a telephone connecting

for hand signals and speeding the

As they were pulling out of the
yards, the conductor notified the en
