E PASSAGE OF FEDERAL ID BILL WASHINGTON". 1. lcb. IS. 'That a preponderating majority of the six miiyon passenger car and mo tor truck owners of the country will support the Townsend bill In the six ty-sixth congress is practically as- sured, " asserts President David John con of the American Automobile asso ciation, which represents motorists I frKllXTl Xllf III VI IU11U, I "Ever since the A, A. A., in January, 1915, caJled the first federal aid In roads convention in the capital city, there has been a steady and logical i progress toward comprehensive par-' ticipation in highways betterment by the national government," according to Mr. Jameson, who then goes on to say: "The explanation' of this development is exceedingly simple and consists mainly in the fact that we now utilize for passengers and freight road ve hicles which disregard county ub divisions and state lines. There most be a distribution of highways author ity among the several subdivisions. In our own councils we have repeatedly discussed the proposition that there should be no smaller unit than the county, which would mean county roads, then state roads, and, finally, federal roads. "On the way to a federal system, we are following out a partnership with the several states by which equal amounts of federal and state money arc 6pent in the, creation of state sys tems. This was preceded by a joint arrangement between the state and its counties, until finally the state in many instances has taken over the main market roads. Exactly the same thing is certain to result from the present fwdoral and elate co-operation, and this is fundamentally set forth in the bill Just introduced by Senator Charles E. Townsend of Michigan, the probable chairman of the senate committee onr post offices and post roads in the next congress. The measure introduced by him calls for a federal highway sys tem which will provide 'not less than two main trunk line roads in each state and joining the federal highway system in the adjacent states and countries.' The commission is to con sist of five members, geographically distributed, and not more than three of the same political affiliation. The terms of office will expire in such manner that only one ISr Cur Spasedl since ail When Ralph De Palma raced hi Packard racing car against time on the beach at Daytona, Florida, last month, he broke the automobile rec ord for soeed by makinq his motor car attain the speed of nearly 150 miles per hour.

The ' appointments are to be made by the presicv-nt and confirmed by the senate, with the term in office seven years. This commission would take over all existing federal road activities, engage a ehi f engineer and other engineers, and the commissioners would give their entire time to their duties. "These provisions will give an idea of the scope of the measure, which, in my opinion, will not only have the support of the motor road users, but will obtain the endorsement of all or ganizations which have to do with highways progress." The automobile industry has a new commissioner I class of purchasers to consider a class SINGLE PLAT CLUTCH MENT ADJUST- Friction wear in the single plat clutch may be remedied by throwing out the clutch, slacking the adjust ment bolts; tap either of them clock wise in the slot on cover, perhaps a quarter or half an inch thus shifting the ring which carries the levers and rollers to new seats on thicker sections of the thrust ring, thus compensating for the wear. CARBON DUST In the generator whero carbon brushes are used a certain amount of fine carbon dust is inevitably deposited in the bottom of the generator. This should be blown out with compressed air whenever the periodic inspection is bfirrg made. whose motor car experience was born of .the war and whose mechanical knowledge was gained under circum stances that imprinted on their minds the many uses the automobile can be put to, its utility and what to look for in the component parts of motor car construction, says . A. Kissel, presi dent of the Kissel Mofr Car company. "I refer to the members of the American Motor corps division who have in the past year learned the A 3 Cs of motor car construction and oper ation, from the ground up. There ar-: several hundred thousand of these young men who represent future pur chasers and users of automobiles, and who will make their purchases accord ing to the expert advice they learned from Uncle Sam. Transmissions, dif ferentials, gear ratios, even' part, of the automobile chassis are like an open book to them. iTartically every automobile manu facturer who was on government work nt one time or a:.uther had scores of these young me.t right in their plants learning the construction of the differ ent automobile p-rts. As one promin ent automobile official said to me re cently: 'They represent the new er. of the automobile industry Kor some time past the manuf-rturers have felt that if owners understood more thor oughly the mechanism of the cars the drove, the abuses they unconsciously gave their ears, half the troubles of owners would be eliminated, half of Americas sen-ice and parts expense would be stonoed and the nation's gas oline and oil bill reduced.'" o- The development of tires for all i classes of transportation service has j been one of the wonderful accomplish- ments of the decade. In both solid and i pneumatic types, tires have been de- ' veloped, capable of delivering tens, twenties and thirties of thousands of miles, and even more, instead of the one and two thousands of early days. There are separate fields for all kinds of tires. Some users demand a pneumatic tire, and others a solid tlr. I The field for pneumatics, however, is rapidly expanding and many trucks are now changing over to this type of tire. "Wat type of tire shall I put on my I truck?'' is a question often tsked these i days, according to the local branch manager for the Goodyear Tire and i Rubber company. This, of course, all ) I depends upon what use you make of your truck," he says. "As between i solids and pneumatics, each affords j well-defined advantages in certain kinds of jtervice. "Kor short hauls, through congested j traffic, where slow speeds are obliga j tory and pavements reasonably good, , solid tires serve economically and well. But in long distance transport, inter -' urban freighting and general trucking, where cushioning and traction are es ; sential, pneumatic tires are far more , efficient and saving. ' "Pneumatic tires permit increased j speed, which means that a truck in ! general trucking service may make ! more trins in a day than formerly. When the reduction of repair expense : is a considerable item, for the big ' pneumatic tires take up the road j shocks and prevent them from affect ing the mechanism of the trurk. "Many truck owners who have ; changed over from solids to pneu : matics have been agreeably surprised : at the advantage, they have gained in I increased speed, greater range of oper ! ation, larger returns from gasoline and oil. and the reduction of depreciation. I not to mention the satisfaction of mak ing deliveries of merchandise in zk6 i condition. 1 ! "These penumatic tires for trucks ' come in sizes S6x, 3Sx7. 40x8, 42x9 and j 44x10, accommodating trucks up to five it-- load capacity They are of cord construction, made in the same man ner as cord tires for passenger cars, except that there are more plies of cords, the sidewalls are sturdier and the tread much thicker. "The possibility of puncture In these tires is very remote. fr the thick tread is exceedingly tough and practically proof against puncture. So that tht old bugbear of punctures is well-nigh eliminated. 'These tires are now in use In more than 400 rities in this country as well p on our Akron-Boston highwaj transport line." o THE RUNNING GEAR It has often been remarked that the average car owner knows too much about the motor and that this knowl edge tends to make him forget and neglect the clutch, gear set and the rest of the power transmission system. Certain it is that universals, brakes, wheel bearings and many other not easily accessible parts are generally forgotten until something goes wrong with them. The owner does not wait for a bearing cap to fall off before he fills the crank case with oil, and simi larly he should not wait until there is play in the universals before he gives it a supply of grease and graphite. It is difficult to keep the universals wefl lubrlccated, even when the housing is periodically filled. Similarly trtcre "Surface" Cuts When a casing is badly cut by glass or other sharp objects it should be removed and a permanent repair " made, by an expert repair man. Otherwise the tire may blow out unexpectedly. Cuts that seem super ficial many times actually penetrate one or more layers of fabric, thus weakening the entire structure, the consequence of which is an early blowout, usual ly when you are in the biggest hurry. Begin Now Look at your tires, if you find a cut, no matter how small, driTC around and let us look at it. If it should be fixed we will tell you. This service does not obli-. gate you in the least; wc are only too glad to be of service. A small cut can be repaired in three hours; a blowout in a day. It is not necessary to "tie-up" your car over night for tire repairs. Retreading We use the one cure wrapped tread method in re treading, using the best stock money can buy. We will absolutely not retread your casing if it will not stand it. We have one. price, guarantee our work and will en deavor to not "ill treat" your business.

PROTECT THE BATTERY While the-storage battery is general ly immune to freezing, because of the acid in the electrolyte, when a bat tery Is pearly discharged it will freeze at about zero, so that the owenr of a battery which ho suspects is pretty well run down should take the pre caution of protecting it with a blanket or heavy robe when the theremometer dhows signs of going down.

We can not greatly blame the Newfoundlanders if thev do not volunteer with fhp alacritv j and enthusiasm that distinguished the early enlistments. I When the war broke out, 1,000 able ' Rpaltlpn tmnAl th. l:,;-u a . . .. ,,-...vu .i,: lust! uitiv, aim 500 volunteers began the formation of the Newfoundland regiment The number of the seamen has been in creased since then, and thev hav had their share, in- the naval actions. With in a year the regiment was 1,100 strong. Kitchener reviewed it with satisfaction and sent it to the Dardanelles, where tt captured Caribou hill, the farthest ! point of advance, and at the last i lurraea part or tne rear guard cover ing the retirement at Cape Helles. Go ing to France, the Newfoundlanders were awarded positions of honor. meaning danger, with the most trusted I regiments. In the attack at Beaumont i Hamel on July 1, 1916, they ware caught among Gorman wire entangle ments and machine guns, and of the SU men who wcjit into battle only 63 answered at roll call next day. New foundland did rot flinch. By October she had her reinforced regiment in line on the Somme, and in October it paid its debt to the enemy in the cap ture of Guedecourt Exactly six months later, holding the foremost position at Monchy. the regiment flung itself against a whole German division and by its heroic sacrifice broke the count er attack. Such were the deeds that accounted ' for the remarkable observance of a "Newfoundalnd week" in London. And now the islanders who since the war began have, sent S.Oftfl men to the front are considering the question of adopt ing the Canadian plan of selective con scription for the maintenance of their strength o nthe firing line. As the colony has a coalition government, un embarrassed by party spirit, the Intro duction of the selective draft may not be difficult. But action will be deferred untli the return of the premier. Sir Kd ward Mohhis, who was recently with us in the United States, but Is now in England. There he has told the Lon doners that he was "watching the Americans at the work of gearing nn their war machine." . . . which in many respects is going to be the most powerful thing of its kind the world has ever known." Wo hope his words will come true. And our hope for Newfoundland is that she will ba able to maintain her enviable reputation in the field rind be our trusty comrade till th" end of the war.
