Plant ut Detroit Is
"Mere flguresfa!l to carry any signifi
cance when the Ford plant at Detroit
is under consideration." said Claude E.
Miller, local agent for the Ford car.
-The fact that 200.000 motor- cars will be
produced this year means but little until
a basis of comparison Is arrived at
"A writer in the American Machinist
who Is writing of the Ford Company
under the general head of 'Building an
Automobile Ever- Forty Seconds.' gives
some Interesting figures.
""For instance, the National Acme
Manufacturing Company, of Cleveland,
used twenty-two carloads of steel bars
to make the 4.500,000 Vinch nuts used
on the Ford cars. The holes In these
nuts if placed end to end would make a
little tunnel from the Acme plant In
Cleveland to the Ford plant in Detroit
and extend twentj-flve miles up Into
"Another example worked out has to
do with the copper wire in the mag
netos of the Ford cars There are six
teen spools, each wound with twelve feet
of copper wire. In each magneto If the
wire used In the SOCWOO Fords made this
jear were straightened out Into one wire,
it woifld give .a strand SS 400,000 feet long.
This Is equivalent to 7.174 mile, or al

F. R. Hutton Defines Necessary Char.
acteristics of Anto Horns and
Their Regulation by Law.
In an article in the Scientific American
supplement Frederic Remson Hutton, M.
E. S D, vice president or tne Ameri
can Museum of Safets, of New iork,
discusses the so called automobile warn
ing signal problem and its proper regula
tion bj law
Dr Hutton. who also ts vice president
of the1 American Society of Mechanical
Engineers and consulting engineer ana
chairman of the technical committee of
the Automobile Club of America, has
made an extensive study of this problem
and deals with it from the standpoint
of wide experience
He urges the adoption of a standard
quality of warning signal and the pro
hibition of its unnecessary use.
"The warning signal," sas Dr Hut
ton. should be of the quality not attach
ing to any other street noise, and It
should be audible from such a distance
that the person warned should not Jump
with a nervous movement to avoid some
thing that seems at his side before he
knew it was anywhere near him
"To ound the signal unnecessarily nef
onl makes the street more noivy than
necessarj, but alo it breeds the habit
of disregarding the signal when it Is
full of "real meaning. A noisy street Is
dangerous when the danger signal can-
not be heard, the quieter the street the
more easily is the attention caught.
'A true musical note (one with a defi
nite number of air waves per second) Is
not as serviceable for arousing atten
tion or for warning as a pure noie un

at all points of Its range, but to make It

Taking Hills at Speed Made Easier
When the Power Is Pro
portionate. According to a well-known local motor
enthusiast the most Important factor In
climbing hills at high speed Is having
motor power in proportion to the weight
of the car.
Frequently one hears a motorist boast
fully tell his friends that his car trill
take any hill on "high," said this me
torist. "While it may be a pleasure to
surmount It on "high," It. nevertheless, s
advisable to consider what may be the
consequences on the motor by the break
ing or straining of one of the parts
If a car Is not properly proportioned.
"A machine may be greatly misused by
constantly taking hills on 'high.'" de
clared this authority on road driving,
"and motorists should not make It a prac
tice to climb every hill that way If the
ascent can be made on other speeds with
out strain It does not follow, however,
that a high-powered car should climb
hills on the 'high' as easily as a light
runabout with less power because of the
differences In weight to be dragged an J
also because of the relation of the speed
of the motor to the driving wheels.
"High-powered cars are generally
geared much lower than cars with small

geared low. The ratio of gearing haa

Chief Iron Tail, Once Head
Powerful Western Tribe, Is
an Example. -
Lo, the poor Indian.
The irresistible march of civilization
and progress has marked great changes
In his life. It has taken from him the
bow and arrow, the tomahawk and the
rifle of his belligerent days and has re
placed them with the hoe, and the scythe,
badges of the once-hated hundrum exist
ence of the agriculturist. His Joyous
das or the hunt and the warpath are
over. His pony Is gone; relegated to the
limbo of things that never return by that
engine of modern transportation, the
That Is. historians and fiction writers
ihave thus painted the Indian's present
condition As a matter of fact, tne pic
ture Is In far more severe colors than
the truth warrants. Today there are
hundreds of Indians In this country, edu
cated, well-fed, happ and Independent.
One of the best examples of the adaption
of modern facilities and customs by the
American Indians is Chief Iron Tail, once
the head of a powerful Western tribe,
whose profile adorns the new five-cent
piece recently Issued by the government.
Far from being down-trodden and discon
solate at the loss of his former power
and glory as the leader of an Important
people. Chief Iron Tall has welcomed the
Innovations which make for the suprem
acy of the United States among nations
or the world, and has availed himself of
every opportunity to Improve the condi
tions under which he and the remnant
of his tribe live.
Chief Iron Tall is a very successful
farmer and the proud possessor of u
Overland automobile, several of whlcn
cars are in use in canning on the busi
ness of the great ranch on which he lives
His greatest delight, between Intervals of
looklrg after his various business Inter
ests. Is to gather a crowd of his redskin
neighbors and take them for long rides
through the Oklahoma prairie country.
He is an expert driver and Is never so
happy as when sitting at the wheel of
his Overland, speeding here and there
over the territory he formerb traversed
at the head of a war or hunting party of
his fellows.
Oil or Thin Grease Between Leaves
Removes Noise, Says Jack
son Man.
"We have all heard annoying little
squeaks from an automobile at It goes
ov er a bump In the road or over a cross
walk." sajs a local motorist, "and more
often than not these noises are due to
unlubricated springs. As the springs act
under the Impact of a bump, the leaves
naturall rub against each other, and
Just as naturally they squeak If there is
no lubricant between the leaves.
"To oil the springs requires a little
work, but the leaves need the, oil, and
the elimination of squeaking noises Is
worth the work. The car must be Jacked
up to take the weight of the body off the
springs Not more than one spring
should be Jacked up at the same time
If there Is a little clip to hold the leaves
together remove It. Then the leaves can
be pried apart with a screwdriver or a
small tool made especially for this pur
pose They can be biled, one by one. with
an ordinary oil can, but a better plan is
to work graphite or grease between the
leaves with a knife blade. The graphite
or grease should be fairly stiff, so that
the springs will be lubricated for a longer
time Ordinarily twice a year la sufficient
if the proper grade of graphite or grease
Is used."

Many Branches to Establish Motor
School for JBstnictkf
The merchant or manufacturer who
owns and operates motor trucks Is to
have another of his problems solved for
him; and In a way that will prove ex
tremely welcome. If the plans of Y. M.
C. A. officials In several large cities of
ihe country carry, there It toon 'to" be
a goodly supply of competent, rellabla
motor truck driver ready for any call for
help made by commercial-vehicle owners.
The association proposed to establish In
Its various branches, motor schools In
Which young men and boys will be taught
construction, care and operation of motor
cars, of both the pleasure and commer
cial variety.
The proposal It one sure to be hailed
with Joy.Tiy motor truck owners. With
the rapidly Increasing- number of com
mercial vehicles In operation in nearly
every line of business, the question of
help has become a serious one. While
hundreds of men who formerly drove
horse trucks have been transformed Into
motor truck chauffeurs with compara
tively little trouble, the pace set by the
new vehicles hat been somewhat rapid
and In several cities there have been
complaint! that competent, reliable driv
ers could not be secured when needed.
"The plan of the Y. M. C. A. officials Is
an especially good one," a local dealer
said last night "With these motor
schools in operation throughout the
country. It will soon.be a simple matter
to secure the services of a commercial
vehicle driver on short notice. And. gen
erally speaking, there will be a better
quality of labor ready for employers,
though drivers of horse trucks have fitted
Into the breach very well thus far.
"With Y. M. C A. schools turning out
competent drivers, men and boys wiw
will know the general construction of a
truck so well that they will be highly
valuable as repair men as well as opera
tors, there should be a, plentiful supply of
labor at all times. And coming from
these schools the men are sure to be In
telligent, competent and thoroughly reli
able, extremely valuable assets In any
business. Like In many of Its other activ
ities, the Y. M. a A. is thus proving Itself
a progressive and welcome aid to the
modern business world."
