Automobile dealers of Washington to

and a committee was appointed, with S.
J. JLuttrell as chairman, to arrange the
details of the event. The committee

George Robertson, Fred Prendergrast,
C H. Warrington. Paul Barnhart, C
Itoyce Hough, and Rudolph Jose.
The committee will endeavor to in

city in the parade, and it Is expected
a. number of handsome prizes will be of

Perhaps few problems in the earlier
days of gas engine manufacture puzzled
the designer more than cylinder cool
ing.' Although various cooling systems
have been brought to a high state of
efficiency, doubtless finality has not yet
been reached, and it Is questionable
whether the ordinary motor car user
both master and servant has given that
attention which ho should to the cause
and effect of undue cylinder heating.
Tf Is an acknowledged fact that over-
cooling is undesirable, but the cases
when It occurs must form a very BtnaU
percentage of the whole, as the natural
cylinder surroundings and conditions all
tend In the opposite direction.
Cheap Oils False Economy.
If the water circulating system is in
any way defective, the cylinder becomes
overheated and the incoming charge ex
panded beyond its usual dimensions, so
that a full quantity is not drawn Into
the confined area.
Other things Invariably follow over
heating, such as prelgnitlon and want
of compression, the lubrication is all
upset, as an oil that may be an ex
cellent anti-friction element when sub
jected to a certain heat naturally has
its limit, and when this is exceeded,
fusion takes place, the lubricating
properties aro lost, and. Instead of the
piston rings taking an easy sliding gas
tight travel up the cylinder sides, a
grinding frlctlonal movement follows. In
this way more heat Is generated, until
perhaps seizure takes place, or. If
events take another course, a broken
connecting rod or crankshaft may re
sult Cheap oils arc false economy; one
should only use a lubricant that carries
entire confidence. An authority cited an
Instance recently with a car which
when running slowly and using a low
grade oil showed loss of power, and,
through a careful examination of the
circulation and lubricating systems
proved all was in order, tho trouble con
tinued. Extravagant In Fuel and Wear.
The oil was tested and found to bo
quite good for low temperatures, but
almost valueless In high ones as those
met with In the class of engine we are
considering, as almost the moment it
entered the cylinder It was burnt up so
that part of the piston traveled in un
Deposits of carbon are much more
likely to accumulate under the adverse
conditions named, and eventually the
carbon becomes an Incandescent sub
stance, giving rise to what is known as
pre-ignltlon. Whether this Is taking
place may be easily proved by switching
off the spark: If pre-lgnltlon is taking
place the engine will continue to run
so lnnsr as there is a vestige of life left
in the carbon deposits referred to.
J As such action takes place before full
I inmnnlmi has been reached. It will
readily be understood that an engine
running unuer mese cunaiuons is ex
travagant In fuel and wear, and. weak

Is necessary to examine rims on which

Denies Lozier Firm
Is Backed By Ford
A persistent rumor has been In cir
culation for some months to the effect
that Henry Ford, head of the' Ford
Motor Company, of Detroit, had acquir
ed a stock interest in the Lozier Motor
H. M. Jewett, president of the latter
company, has made the following state
ment denying the truth of the rumor:
"Neither Mr. Ford nor the Ford
Motor Company has ever considered
acquiring a financial interest In the
Lozier company, nor has the Lozier
company ever had any idea or intima
tion that at any time Mr. Ford or the
Ford company were considering becom
ing interested financially or In any
other manner in the Lozier organization."

Pioneer Motorist Qives Good
Advise for Disagree
" There are few things about an auto
mobile more important than the tire
chains, and on account of the difficulty
of putting them on and removing them
they are not put on as often as they
should be. Chances are often taken
which endanger life as well as tho car.
The following easy method of applying
and removing the chains is given by a
pioneer motorist with the hope that It
will make less difficult this distasteful
task, and bo the means of savingsome
cne a wheel If not a serious accident.
Take the chain for the right rear
wheel, holding the hook end of the In
side chain in the left handand about
two feet farther down grasp the same
chain In the right hand; stretch this
chain tight and lay It down behind and
outside of the right rear wheel. Still
stretching this chain tight, move It be
hind the wheel.-. This will lay the chain
straight. Proceed in like manner with
the cnaln for the left wheel, then move
the car back until It stands on the
straight cross links.
Taking the loop ends of the side
chains in the hands, straighten them
out and carry the chain back over the
wneei, aner wmen go to we rear anu
the ends will bo In a convenient posi
tion for hooking. Fasten the Inside
chain first and then the outside.
To remove the chains.' unhook 'and
move the car off from them, washing
and drying them, if muddy, or permit
ting them to dry and remove the mud
by beating the chain on the pavement.
Inasmuch as chains are made of steel,
they will quickly rust If not cared for.
For this reason wet chains should never
be put In the bag when wet, to rust
To put the chains In the bag tho fol
lowing method will be found much
simpler. Hang the chain by Its cen
ter upon any convenient object such as
a topMron. high enough to permit .the
ends to clear the ground. Then hold
ing the bag in the two bands with the
opening below the chain, raise the bag
over the chain at the same time lifting
the chain off from the top Iron and you
have the chain quickly bagged.

It Is Time to Give Up Tire Changing Solves All Tire Problems
Airease absolutely does away with roadside Tire Repairs!
Motoring today would be the great national pleasure
if it were not for that ever-present bug-bear TIRE
TROUBLE. The most disagreeable part of motoring is
completely eliminated by the use of a tire filler that makes
tires as resilient as air, yet as unpuncturable as solid tires.
Reflect on some of your past experiences: changing
casings in the boiling sun, pumping tires under torrid heat,
changing tires at night or in the rain, or going home on
the rim ALL of these are relegated to the region of the
old "one-lung" and two-cylinder opposed motors.
WISE MEN MARVEL today at the fact that the old
time bicycle tire, with its troublesome compressed air, could
have developed into the automobile tire. Thousands of
attempts have been made at spring wheels and airless tires,
Ge A1EEASEKS dcmomtetimA Ihe

WEDDING, EHi DAY
and not a few tire fillers have been marketed. . But it
remains for Airease to produce a lasting, unchangeable
material, not affected by heat or moisture, or cold or
drought, that will be as resilient as air and an indestruct
ible element in itself.
Nearly every car owner has said unprintable things
about his tires, while dealers and garage men have been
besieged with requests for a cheaper and satisfactory Sub
stitute for the tire filled with air.
After many years of investigation by a famous chem
ist, and three years' experimentation and use on many cars,
that substitute for air has been developed not only to a
marketable state, but to an almost perfect one In fact,
Airease fills all the requirements of the perfect tire filler.
CAN IT BE THAT
THERE IS A MAN
using compressed air in
his tires if he were sure
that a perfect tire filler
could be quickly put in
them which would give
all the resiliency of air
and last for many years ?
A perfect tire filler must be soft, spongy and resilient it must neither be
affected by heat nor by cold it must not harden through years of service.
Samples of Aairease have been exposed to the air for years to the July
heat and the December cold, but no change has been detected in their bulk or
Airease absolutely contains no glue, glycerine, starch, acid, water, or any
thing else that will shrink or lose its resiliency, or that will disintegrate through
years of service.
No matter how many times a tire filled with Airease is compressed, it al
ways springs back with the same resiliency as when new; in fact, if there is any
difference it becomes more springy with age. A car can stand in the garage on
the same spot for months, yet no noticeable depression can be made upon the
TUBES FILLED WITH AIREASE ARE INTERCHANGEABLE
They can be used in as many casings as you can wear out with your can
years. An Airease filled tube can oe inserted into any type of tire orritn.
