T. : A J z --.- f Automobile News j " '.' . Proposed Auto Laws. i ' The State Library, which is re ceiving copies of bills ' from other states, has already a number relating to motor vehicles, Massachusetts has this under teonsideration : "No person shall operate a motor vehicle on any way tinside the thickly settled or bus iness part of a city or town at a rate of speed exceeding that allowed for the operation of street railway cars, and the rules regulating the opera tion of street cars within the afore said parts of cites and towns' shall apply to motor vehicles." - ' New Tork is evidently endeavoring to amend radically- it3 motor-vehicle code and one of the ; amendments provides that no, one shall drive or operate a .motor vehicle who Is un der, 18 years of age, a change which cuts from the existing law, the words" unless accompanied by , a licensed chauffeur or the owner of the car." It also provides that any. person, operat ing a .car shall, while so doing, wear a badge. : 'Heretofore the badge, fur nished ,.by the state along with the registry plate, -was .only required to be worn by chauffeurs " - . Pennsylvania has the following bill under consideration by the commit tee on public roads and highways:. That no license to operate a motor vehicle shall be issued unless the ap plication therefore is accompanied by a certificate from a' physician licensed to practice medicine in Pennsylvania, that he has examined . the applicant and that the -eyesight ,of. the. appli cant Is normal, or that any abnor mality or, weakness is corrected by means of eyeglasses or spectacles and that the applicant has no physical or mental .defect that might impair . the ability .of the applicant to operate a motor vehicle witnout oanger to uxe public" . . ' vT The legislature of the state of "Rhode Island and Providence Plan tations" has a measure providing that 'All . headlights on,, motor , vehicles operated " within the' : fifteen-mile J speed limit radius shall be ' so dim med or covered that the glaring ef fect of said headlights shall be done away with. Every motor " vehicle shall be provided with aslock,keyor other device to prevent said vehicle from being set in motion, and no per son shall allow any - , such vehicle operated by him to stand unattended in any street,"" road, avenue, ; alley, highway, park, parkway or other public place withqut first locking or making fast the vehicle as above pro vided." : The f bill further, prohibits the use of chains, . except on certain types of highway construction, save when the roads are in an icy or slip pery 'condition. : South . Dakota has a bill - regardful of ,the Bafety of the public rather than of the automobilist. In passing trolley cars ,th operators , -of motor vehicles : must slow down, and, - if needs be, come to' a full stop. When approaching a pedestrian upon any part of a highway other than ' the sidewalk,-, the operator, must slow down and give a warning signal with belK or horn. When following anoth er vehicle; t a motor vehicle shall not approach nearer . than seventy-five feet while running at, full speed, nor nearer , than twenty-five feet while running at any speed, save when the driver proposes to pass, the vehicle ahead of him by turning to the right. Boosting a "Motor. '''; v' . 'Picric acid and various other sub stance's have been used to increase the sharpness of the, explosion and in this - way an increase of power re suits but the ,gain Is not great. The use of these substances has-been for bidden by the A. A.. A. and none of the modern races have been won with their aid; gasoline alone has supplied .the energy. It is inadvisable to. use any of these substances as - an increased strain is put' oln the parts, and ; certain chemi cals In these substances produce cor rosion. ' " . . if you must have increased, power to win a hill-climb or for some other reason ..and do not mind the expense. we would advise the use of oxygen, Procure a. tank and run a pipe to a hole in the intake, manifold. Adjust your carburetor" so that two mixtures can be obtained, one with . throttle only partly opened for slow driving and the other with throttle wide open for racing or hill-climbing. Make the last. adjustment entirely too rich and then make combustion : perfect by opening the oxygen valvef of the tank. Care must be taken not to Increase the power development too much, as It is easily possible to blow the motor to pieces. , Pure oxygen will give five times the power that air will and therefore pie pressures developed are about five times as great, so that it is seen that it is easily possible to have an explosion.- Motor Print. Aid in Steering. ' There is some play in the steering apparatus of - an automobile , even when new,- and as the parts are used and become worn at the , connections, the amount ' ef play is not objection able, but just a little too much of fers great inconveniences. y: After . our- car became badly worn we found a. cheap means'of reducing the appreciable play besides offering nrotection in another way. says a writer in an automobile paper. Four small coil springs, such-, as are used to attach to screen doors, , about eigh teen inches long. were procured. To f increase their strength, these were used in pairs, one pair to each side of the machine, in this manner: i At a point directly beneath the. cen ter of the radiator, one end of all the springs was attached. From this point two , of i the springs ,' were stretched across to the rear end of the projecting arm of the right front wheel spindle. The other pair were attached similarly to the arm on the left side. . The ends were attached at their respective points by means of wires. , . - , With this arrangement, there was a 'perpetual tension on the , spindle arms tending , to . keep them tight against the steering rods. This' ten sion was lowest - when the car . was running straight ahead and increas ed as .the wheels were swung to either side, as this would ; slacken up one set of springs .and increase the stretch on the other set. Thus, when there was steering to be done and the need for close connection the greatest the tension was , likewise greater, keeping a steady pull -in the same direction on the steering wheel. Tou have the satisfaction of hav ing the wheels stay right when you hold them. When . running on a straight attack there is no pull what ever on the steering wheel, as the tension of each set of springs is equal The protection it offers is this: If something should happen to the steering rods .while - running1 on a straight- road, the springs will hold the wheels straight ahead and one will have time to shut down before something happens. Hushing the Gears. ' A quiet change can be made by first disengaging low gear and hold- ing the- gears in-neutral until friction has slowed the countershaft and the clutch down enough so that the speeds of the teeth on the two inter mediate gears are . the same. If the clutch brake is fitted, the period of waiting, is reduced1 as the brake aids in slowing down the shaft. The type of clutch 'and' the size of gears influ ence the time of waiting to some ex tent. . , For Instance, It will take : - a cone clutch -With . a large radius from .the center of the shaft a much longer time to slow; down than a light disk clutch with a small radius. The shift to high gear is made to second. On some. cars a better, shift can be made by .only pushing the clutch pedal out, half way when high is to be engaged. . Under ordinary circumstances it is not necessary to accelerate to more than 10 miles per hour- before shifting to high gear., There Certainly is no necessity for speeding the car up to 20 miles or more, as a great "many do unless the start is made on a hill or a very very rapid acceleration is desired. There is a possibility in making a silent shift that one will wait too long with the result that the- gear will be i missed that is, the speed of the countershaft . gear will drop to less than that of v the . main-shaft gear, and it becomes very difficult or impossible to mesh the gear. In this i case, ' the ordinary' method is to en- gage low gear and shift again.' How- i ever, it is not necessary to go to ail this trouble. Merely bring the gear lever -to neutral, engage the "clutch. and then accelerate the motor , to bring the speed-: of the countershaft high enough so that the intermediate gear on . this shaft . is moving faster than the one on the main shaft Then disengage the clutch and shift. In changing; from a higher gear to a lower, it is more difficult to make the change silently. The , ordinary metnoa, wnicn makes more or less noise depending on what the relative gear speeds happen to be, the'amount of friction; and the size-of the rotat ing masses, is to shift the gears as quickly as .possible. . Little .momen tum is lost by this practice; which is important on a hill, but the shift, is very; liable to be noisy. , ' .. A quiet shift may be accomplished only by taking proper steps to bring the teeth. Of the engaging gears to the same speed!" One way of doing this'is to-holr down the accelerator pedal and then release the : clutch only enough to allow the motor to accel erate to the speed required by the lower gear. When this speed is reach ed, the clutch pedal is-held stationary and the shift is made. Then ( the clutch is engaged. ; J - ' - Another way to disengage . the clutch, bring the gear lever to .neu tral and then . engage the clutch , for an instant, while the . motor is speeded up , to the speed required by the lower gear, when the change is made. . The gear lever : may , be brought to neutral without disengag ing the clutch by closing the throt tle for an instant and shifting at the instant that no power is, being trans mitted, i - .
