FRANKLIN Motor Car Co. R. H. Lar rorte, Proprietor. Showroom and Service 1324 14th St N. W. Phone M. 10067 One of the most popular football teams of northeastern Ohio Is the deaf mute team of the Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company, of Akron, known as the Goodyear "Sllents." I Their ability as football artists, j coupled with the novelty of the team Itself, has caused them to recelie offers from many other teams scat tered throughout the State. A num ber of the "Sllents" have played with mute college teams and are gridiron veterans. Their classy work would attract attention even were they with out the natural handicap they labor unde,r. During the baseball season that has just passed the Goodyear mutes proved that a lack of speech and hear ing Is no more of a barrier In base ball than It Is in football, for In their league they won the Akron city cham pionship for Class B baseball. The company has about 200 mutes In Its employ, whose skill as workmen Is equal to that of any other class of workmen at the plant. NAVY YARD MEN ASK RAI8E. A general committee of workmen from the various navy yards of the country have called at the Navy De partment In an effort to have- the wages of three classes boiler-makers, ship fitters, and riveters raised up to the basic rates now In operation at all the rards.

FIRST MOTORIZED BAHERY FORMED OKLAHOMA LEADS Doubtless there will be many com pletely motorized batteries before the present war Is ended, but the honor of being first goes to Battery "C" Fifty P. A., commanded by CapL W. H. Capron, and formed at Tort Sill, uKianoraa. A battery consists of four guns with their limbers and six crlssons with their limbers, six ammunition trucks, a store truck and a machine shop or repair truck. In the case of guns of smaller caliber a tractor will haul a section of artillery which consists of a caisson and Its limber and a gun and Its limber. Much shorter poles are used than with horses, the end of the poles being provided with a lunet or eye, making the coupling for the tractor. Each tractor pulls a load of about nine tons. The vehicles used are the six trucks, the Holt 43 h. p. Caterpillar tractor and a Dodge touring car. The entire brigade as proposed by the War Department will be com posed of three regiments having a maximum strength of 3.6S3 officers and men. It will have seventy-two guns and 108 caissons. To keep this equipment working will require I0S ammunition trucks, twenty-seven store trucks, ninety tractors, nine re. pair trucks, twenty-one repair cars, nine passenger trucks, nine tank trucks, and thirty-seven supply trucks, all motor driven. In addition to these vehicles the brigade has 297 motorcycles with side cars and thirty reel carts. The adoption of universal motor ized equipment is the acknowledged desire of military authorities. The fixed railroad track offers to the enemy an opportunity of delaying operations since It Is only necessary to droD a few bombs to put transpor tation facilities out of commission. Roads are easier to repair and the me of motor trucks and touring cars of sturdy construction allows detours when necessary. A careful record was kept of the performance of motor vehicles In the service of the Government on the Mexican border, and much valuable In formation was gained. It was chiefly because of Its splendid record In this rervim that the Dodge was chosen for the battery HBasrAk' mMwt "Wilbur Leach, formerly associated with the Ungerer Motor Company, was commissioned captain In a branch of the ordnance corps. Leach is well cast In his new role. His Is a disposition implacable to worry, and fear Is no part of hla make-up.

' " . .. . matlc bread-making machine, that Is that the new model has all the econ--noir being demonstrated at the'Presl- dlo at San Francalco, and determines upon their Installation. The bread maker is the invention of James Car ver, and its adaptation to the motor truck has been brought about by Ralph Hamlin. Bread that Is fresh and highly palatable Is very much dslred by soiaiera, out, at the present time there la no way to keep them supplied" with It when at the front. Usually uie bakery- Is far in the rear, or there Is no fresh bread at alL But with such a machine as Carrey haa designed, mounted on a motor truck chassis, it Is believed possible to overcome this difficulty as the vehicle Is well able to keep up with any other part of the transport, and the bread producing speed is sufficient to supply any need quickly. It is claimed that the Oarvey mo tor oreaa making machine Is the only unit combination In existence that will completely make a loaf of bread, performing all the functions custo mary to hand work. It mixes the dough, molds any shape desired, and divides It into loaves of predetermin ed weight. Whatever adjustments are necessaryto change weights and molds are made by a hand wheel con trol. The bread ingredients are put imo qn automatic mixer and at the proper time are discharged Into troughs and allowed to raise. When properly aged, the" dough Is fed into an automatic divider and molder. ana is Kneaded as it passes through on chain-operated belt convevera. The capacity of the output Is be tween 3,000 and 6,000 loaves, of any size, wcigm ana shape desired, an hour. With five men emnlnverf it will do the same work that now re quires 112 men In the army. In addi tion, the dough Is handled In a sani tary manner, the finished loaves be ing discharged Into baking pans ready for the oven. The outfit weighs three tons and Is mouniea on a tnreeand one half ton motor truck chassis. The body meas ures seven ana one-half feet by twen ty feet, with a six foot drop extension In the rear, nine and one-half inches oeiow me other part of the body. The rear end Is lower so that the bread can be panned at nt&nritnv- ii.if.K There Is the ordnary baker's cabinet and platform work bench, which folds up. forming- one M nr th. body, when In transit. There is a top over the entire outfit, and. when set long dlstanc.es as well as with short, chosen, routes, and that the new car embodies the ability of previous Maxwells to extract long distances from slender rations. The record: was Tnade. Under the su pervision of James A- Hemstreet, who is todrlng'dlrector for the A. A. A., and acted as a field representa tive during the test. The mileage figure becomes astonlnshlng when coupled with Hemstreet's report of weather conditions during the demon stration. The day was raw and cold. Rain fell during the entire run. The roads were wet. muddy and slippery. The car carried four grown passeng ers. At no time was the engine as hot as It might have been for the highest possible attainment in gasolene econ omy. The hood and radiator were not covered. At no tjtne was the engine stopped while the car was In motion. More surprising still Is the statement In the report that an average speed of rrora twenty-five to thirty miles an hour waa maintained, although it is commonly known that a speed of fifteen to twenty miles an hour will produce the greatest mileage from gasolene. The purpose of the undertaking was to demonstrate the mileage that any owner might expect to obtain from his Maxwell In ordinary drlvinc. and this waa shown to be better than twenty five miles to the gallon. -rn route covered was the same course over which a Maxwell touring ... .b.ii.,j mute iiiq .u utiles irom Wrrh-E-iSaiay r i i I High-Priced Cars and Saxon "Six: Use the Same Rear Axle I I I I I I The rear axle bean most of motoring's everet rtrainir It does the double doty of carrying the car's -weight and transmit ting the "driving push."
