What is the cost of a cloud?
In a city like Philadelphia tens of
thousands of electric liKhts are turned
on when the sun is blanketed and
there aire murk or somber skies because
of the dark clouds. Electric lights
mean more use of coal and coal
means money and the money comes
from the public's ptirse when the elec
tric light bill comes in.
Someone figured that a rainy day
cost New Tork an unconscionable
amount of money. Women, he ex
plained, disbursed S5 per cent of the
money earned by men. On rainy or
dark days they remained indoors most
ly. Store sales were curtailed, traffic
reduced and nearly every class and
character of business was affected ad
versely. Theaters, movie shows, ball
frames and genera! amusements suf
fered seriously.
Theer is a good deal of truth in this.
However, there are some lines that are
benefitted. Persons buy more um
brellas, overshoes, raincoats and such
articles. Strange to say, some depart
ment store people declared their rainy
day business was quite satisfactory,
many women choosing such days for
their buying: because the crowds were
not so great, and they did more pur
chasing because they had better op
portunity to make selections and re
ceive attention.
In New York, in one of the tallest
structures ,thc eiectric light people
have watchers stationed night and day
to search the skies. At the first sign
of approaching storm or dark clouds
the word is passed to the great power
houses, and the firemen get busy
shoveling coal, so the Edison people
will be able to give all the light New-
York needs.
The world war didn't hurt auto
racing. When the Indianapolis Speed
way management this spring an
nounced the resumption of the 600
mile race for May 31 there were those
who asked if the sport would come
back strong. There is no reason why
it shouldn't.
During the war the various experi
ments carried on in the auto plants,
the constant striving for more perfect
motors for airplanes and the use of
better materials helped auto racing.
Racing monsters nearer . perfection
than anything ever seen will compete
in the 500-mile race at Indianapolis.
Ralph Pe Talma is entering the
race in a Packard 12. The car was de
signed for this year's race and has an
airplane motor. This airplane motor
is a baby edition of the famous Liberty
motor heard of so much during thw
days when the United States was com
ing to the front in airplane production.
The foreign built cars have improve
ment discovered in war times. The
Sunbeam cars of England, the baby
Peugot and the Eallott machines are
all improved.
The drivers who mostly served in the
aviation branch of France or America
are glad to get back, too. The thrills
of the air did not wean them away
from the track.
De Palma says auto racing beats
airplanes for thrills.
"Flying seems monotonous compared
with auto racing," he said. "On a trip
of several hundred miles you may be
making speeds which would be ter
rific in an auto 140 miles an houi.
But at the height of a mile or more
you have no realization of speed, and
sitting up there in the wind and noise
is lonesome work. The stunts are more
exciting, of course, but there is no
competition, no audience, no applause.

A Hot Spot Chalmers
Holds Every Drop of
Gas to Account
t takes gas to move weight. And in a car like the Hot
Spot Chalmers, which is 300 pounds above the "light-weight"
class and 300 pounds under the "heavy-weight" class, gas
has more than passing attention.
The trick is to move this weight at the minimum effort.
Therefore, the Hot Spot and Ram's-horn play a great part in
the Chalmers.
Hot Spot holds every drop of gas to account
It "cracks up" into a "dry vapor powder" the raw gas just
as the gas enters the Ram's-horn and the latter dispatches the
"pulverized" fuel to the cylinders with lightning like rapiditv.
The result is that when the spark plugs "touch it off"
every drop (finer by far than the naked eye can detect) turns
itself into power de luxe.
There's little waste well nigh none. And
remember that this Hot Spot engine of the
Chalmers is the most modern automobile engine
