Assurance of Permanent
Peace Restores Confidence
of Wall Street Traders.
New York, Feb. 15.?The actual bank
statement today showed surplus In
creased 115.013.760: loans increased W9.
S37.000 and net demand deposits in
creased WM.000 The average atate
mapt showed surplus decreased *11.
964.210; loans increased 19,923.000 and
net demand deposits decreased $41,
The league of nations idea gave
Wall street a buoyant market today
under leadership of the oil stocks,
but steel was not a laggard. Motor
shares. particularly General Motors.
Hide and Leather, preferred. Inter
national Paper and Marine shares
were strong. St. Paul went to the
lowest price in many years.
Shareholders in all Mexican com
panies were optimiatic today. Mex
ican Petroleum atock advanced more
than 5 points. Pan-American common
moved up 5 and the preferred 11. Koy
al Dutch, which has large Mexican
Intereats. was up nearly 4 points. Thla
strength of Mexican oil stocks caus
ed a aympathetic rise of more than
3 point* in Texas Oil.
The reason St. Paul is so weak is
that the directors of that company
fear, the government will subtract
from the lease payments due all the
advances made for improvements. If
that is done the dividend on the pre
ferred stock cannot be paid.
The advance of International Paper
to another new high record for the
movement was accompanied by re
ports that the company would retire
some of its bonds. The company is
in a strong position, and Wall street
believes th* stock presents good specu
lative possibilities.

Means to Overcome the
Greater Sources of "Rat- j
tling" Discussed.
Noisy operation Is the bete noir of
the careful motor car owner. Absolute
silence is impossible to be attained In
any piece of machinery, especially in a
vehicle traversing the roads under Its
own power. However, it is posslole to
achieve a reasonable freedom from
loud noise by a little intelligent under
standing and care.
The engine Is the Beat of the greater
part of the really offensive noises that
sometimes beset the modern automo
bile. The commonest noises arising
from the engine are valve clicks and
slaps. These may be distinguished by
the regular rhythm of their recur
rence. The cause may he too groat a
clearance between the valve stem and
i the tappet, or In the case of overhead
valves, the clearance between the nit
er and the push rod may be to blame,
i The remedy for this condition is the
reduction of the clearance and this ad
' Justinent should be made while the
engine Is hot. This Is necessary be
cause of the expanslbn of metal when
heated. In which condition the valves
operate. VI? adjustments were made
tfhen the metal was cold, they would
I not be correct after the parts had be
come heated with running.
Occasionally, however, clicking In
the valve mechanism Is caused by a
! lifter being locee in its guide. To lo
| cate thm tronl.le the lifter assembly
i will have to .>e removed and In the
: main a worn lifter must be replaced.
(Certain deigns of guides are such
that the guide may be sprung slight
1 ly. so that it will grip the lifter
1 tighter, remedying the trouble.
Another location for trouble of this
kind Is at the cam. between which and
i its follower there may be too much
' clearance. Fitting new followers usu
ally has a beneficial effect here. Worn
valve stems or guides will produce
noise. Removal of the springs will en
able conditions at this point to be de
| termined. There Bhould be no play ot
the stem sideways in Its guide and
investigation discloses play, a bushing
should be fitted to the gu.de or else a
valve with an oversize stem must be
The valve mechanism in an overhead
valve system normally develops more
noise than does an ordinary L-head
engine's valves. Systematic and ade
i'uate lubrication will do much to
j minimize noise here. Occasionally
j side-play devplors in the rocker arms
with a slap us the result. A worn arm
I bearing will make trouble, which may
! be cured by fitting an oversize bushing
in the rocker arm.
i While the valves are the commonest
i locations of undue noise, they are not
at all the sole seats of trouble in the
engine. The bearings in most engines
| are m?de of soft metal, which must be
kept copiously lubricated or It burns,
becomes flattened and a knock results.
The ordinary remedy for this trouble
is to take up the play by rembvlng the
shim between the two halves of the
part or else by trimming the metal on
I th?^ removable part. Care nri iM lv
taken in performing this operation to
see that the bearing touches the shaft
all around, without being too tight.
In fitting bearings the utmost care
! must be taken to avoid throwing the
shaft out of alignment and this condl
, tlon is particularly like:y to occur
when one bearing is fitted witheut
j reference to the others. In unit pow
i er plant construction if the shaft is
1 thrown out of alignment, one of the
I pears in the transmission is sure to
bind, with the result that noisy geir
operation ensue?.
Another source of bearing knock ??s
the flanges of the crankshaft bearings,
which hre flattened by crankshaft
thrust, in ihis case it does n^t pay
to try to fix the old bearing flanpes.
| It is better to get a new bearing.
Play frequently develops in the
! upper rod bearing and very often
' the motor cat owner blames
' the lower rod or crankshaft
bearing for the trouble. On many of
the cheaper cars there is no bushing
at the top of the rod. while in some
others a bronze bushing will be in
| stalled to take up the wear. When
i there Is no bush in 7. a new piston pin
I will ha\e to >?e fitted, or if the piston
bosses are worn eccentric, it miv
mean a new piston or the installation
! of a bushing.
When the piston or cylinder is wori\.
it results in a knock that is much iiKe
the sound that comes from pre-igni
tion. If this trouble is not severe it
may be cured by fitting new p'ston
rings. On the other hand a severe
case may call for th** installation of a
; complete new set of pistons. W hen the
cylinder block has worn in a slight!'
oval shape. it may be rebored and
fitted with oversize pistons. which
makes it practically a new block.
Timing gear or chain noises ait? diffi
cult to cure. In certain makes oi
silent chains an adjustment is pio
i vided to take up slack, but where no
I such provision is made the chain must
I be shortened by taking out a link ot
rt*o a new chain must be Installed. If
chain noise becomes chronic, the car
; owner will do well to consult a service
! station, where an idler may be in
i stalled to take up slack.
One of the commonest of all knocks
! is that due to pre-ignitton. This may
be caused by carbon, too grea* an ad
: vancc of the spark, poor timmg. ?veI"
j heating, overloading of the engine and
; incorrect mixture and the greatest of
! these is carbon. In every case the
charge explodes too soon, not giving
I the piston time to reach the top of its
I journey and the result is that it is
I thrust against the side of the cylinder,
j producing a knock. The only way to
I cure this noise "is to determine the
j cause by' process of elimination and
i then do away with the cause,
j Transmission noises are not at all
uncommon. W'Tien one of the shafts is
thrown out of alignment by reason or
1 a worn bearing or a binding geai,
noise Is bound to result. Sometimes
! the transmission case itself is out ot
true, so that both shafts are thrown
out of alignment. Very often a gear
will be broken because of shaft mis
alignment and the owner has a new
one Installed. This, however, does n?t
cure the cause'of the breakage, which
is misalignment and a second accident
follows. In this case the owner may
assume that the shafts are out ot
alignment and this basic trouble must j
be corrected.
Propeller shafts and joints are not i
commonly troublesome in this way,
?ut the rear axle is frequently the
seat of weird noises. When the dr?v- i
ing pinion and the differential master j
gear are not running true, there will ^
be a loud hum with a sort of stress at
each revolution. Most cars have some ]
form of adjustment to take up wear j
In this location, the adjustment con- !
slating of shifting the whole differen
tial unit. This is a job for expert
hands and should not be attempted by
the owner, unless he Is a real me- j

Tire Wear and Rim Mounting.
It is generally understood nowadays !
that wheels which are out of align
ment cauae undue tire wear. Few
owners, however, realize that rims j
which are loose or otherwise im
properly mounted will have the same
effect of fusing excessively rapid
tread wear. A loose rim generally
makes its presence known by a click
ing or squeaking sound. This is not
always go. for occasionally a small
stone or some sand may get in be
tween the rim and felloe so as to
prevent noise. The rim appears to
be tight but in reality is running out
of alignment and wearing out the'
Defending Grades.
In driving down steep grade* vari- j
ous resistences may be utilised to'
keep the car under control. If the'
engine is kept running and the gears 1
are In high, there is only slight resist- j
a nee. This may be increased by
shifting into second speed and further
increased bv shifing to first. When j
still further resistance is needed to i
maintain a check on the progress of;
the car and it is not desired to use
the brakes, the ignition may be shut'
off and the throttle closed. By open- ;
ing the throttle the resistance is still
further increased. The maximum of
resistance and the best control on a
dangerously steep hill may be ob-!
t lined by shifting into first, switching
off of the ignition and applying the1
brakes at intervals.
Clnteh Trouble*.
, A great deal of clutch trouble for
I which the owner can find no obvious
| cause, is due to the fact that the
J clutch shaft is out of true with the
| center of the flywheel. This causes
j one side of the cone clutch to bind.
| while the other sfffe is free; in the
lease of the disc clutch, the plates
(tend to hold only on one side. The
| result is that the clutch grabs when
engaged. If persistent treatment and
adjustment does not help a clutch, it
! is ?afe to conclude that the condition
I mentioned is causing the trouble.
On I'pholatery.
The glossy finished leather substi
tute upholstery is better than the dull
i finished, the latter being pi one to
cr%ck or lose its coloring material
through friction. Use of the dull
material brings a sort of half-glossy
| finish and the cracking cease*, but it
is better to get the blight "inish in
the first place.
When Fuaea BIom.
When lighting fuse* blow out one
after the other, it does not pay to
keep replacing them: it is something
more than coincidence. Try to find
out the cause and the first place to
look is in the cut-out. If this portion
of the lig lining system is of the type
that has points which may become
stuck, it is very likely io cause con
tinued fuse breakage.
The Stornjcr Buttery.
; After the storage battel y is fifteen
; months old the dealer considers it
i worthless. The fact that the battery
has such a comparatively brief life
at best, should lead owners to give |
it careful treatment so as to get
maximum service from it. Adding
distilled water to the cells to bring
the fluid up to the proper level, should
be done once a week In summer and
twice a month in winter. But this Is
not enough; the gravity of the solution
may not be correct. A hydrometer syr
inge test is the only sure method ot
determining the condition of the oat
?tery and if the cells show below l-s?'
each, they require recharging. Once
every two months the battery should
1 be taken to the service station for
charging, especially if the user is a
doctor or one* similarly occupied,
whose car is started and stopped
many times each day.
Fitting Part*.
It is just as bad to have parts fit too
tightly ns it us to leave them too loose.
A bearing which is too tight will
loosen rapidly and will pound while so
doing. It is bad practice to have the
bearings taken up merely by refitting
the-movable half. The whole bearing
should be refitted, if the part Is to give
really good service. In some cars im
proper fitting of the rear main bearing
will throw the clutch shaft out of
alignment and cause endless trouble.

Never attempt to force the upper
half of the windshield up or down by
pushing 011 one side, especially if the

is at all weak, this method of handling
will probably break the pane.
Priming the Oil Pump.
In cars fitted with a piston-type oil
pump, failure to force the oil In its
prcfper channels may be remedied by
priming the pump. This Is done by
disconnecting the line behind me
gauge and forcing oil from a can
through the pump lead while the en
gine is running very slowly. When oil
spurts back through the pipe, it shows
that the pump is working again.

My car Jerks at speeds around five

| makls so much noise that I cannot
i tell whether the engine is running
properly. What causes the trouble?
I?M. K. D.
The usual cause of this is mianr
| ing it low speeds, or s reduction in
t power from some other source. Th<
| bad performance may be due to car
' bon in the cylinders, or to dirty
plugs or a poor adjustment of the
bpark-plug gaps, which may b?
found to.be too wide. The ralves
may not be seating properly, or per
I hapa the carburetion Is at fault

The cause of the trouble cannot be
determined with any degree of defl
niteness unless the condition of the
engine is known.
Do you believe that carbon re

tively by means of kerosene or other
liquids? What is the best way to

Kerosene Is a poor substance to
us? for loosening carbon, but a few
proprietary compounds on the mar
ket have given fairly good results
under lest. The only certain way
of removing carbon is to scrape it
out *nd if the cylinder head is of
the detachable type this should be
'done. If the head is integral with
the cylinders the oxygen method
will prove fairly satisfactor>.
Why is it that the hood of a car
will get dull before the rest of the

The usual cause ofv this dullness
is washing when the hood is hot.
With a cheap finish, dullness can
not be prevented by ordinary means,
so 1 suggest that, if you care enough
about It. you insulate the inside of
the hood with sheet asbestos.
