BILLIARD BALL GAVE
. CLUE TO MENTION
A. couple of Hyatt men, one ere
&Bff recently, were encased In a
nlt same of billiards at the club,
when one of them remarked to the
other: "Did you ever know the origin
of Hyatt Roller Bearings" Recelv-lng-
an answer In the negative, he
. "John Hyatt was more or less of a (
j"" piayer, nimseir. iMsiurauy.
ne knew the Talue of an Ivory ball,
for its elasticity, good balance, ett,
and one day, while enraged In a
Came, the thoueht occur, ed to him
Jhy was It necessary for a billiard
ball to be made of an elephant's tusk I
to be flexible.
"The result of this Idea was his In
vention of celluloid, on which subject
he spent much thoueht, so much In
fact that he measured most every
thing in terms of elasticity. While
he was turning the problem over In
his mind, he happened to be down
South when they were cuttinT sugar
cane. They were trying; out a new
type of macerator for grinding up the
cane before they put it In the press
es, and they had trouble with the
bearings on the machine. .
"Hyatt said the bearings were too
rigid that was all that was wrong
with them and, the old Idea of
elasticity coming into his head, he
r.nplied it as a bearing principle,
with success, and thereby gave him
self the Idea of making a bearing
with hollow helically wound flexible
rollers, from which the present Hyatt
quiet bearings weie evolved."

Q. Ths carburetor of ray Bulck la leaking
ras, especially when the car Is stopped. New
needle valve and Coat baa been metalled but
the leak continues and we are unable to de
tect tbe cause though the servlo station and
myself have looked It over carefully. Tbe
leak seems to be In the air Intake as the
Boat shuts oft when I stop. It Is a Marvel
carburetor. Pleas rlv me any surttstlons
whlch may occur to you. A. L.
A. The leakage Is caused by too
high a float level, condensation In
manifold or a bad needle. I Imagine
it is condensation, especially so it
the leaking stops after the car has
been standing some time. Lower the
float level slightly and probably the
trouble will stop. Are you sure the
float actually floats and does not
drop to the bottom due to heaviness I
Q- I have a atx-cyllnder ear son ysars old
and am having trouble with the ell pump.
I have cleaned out the pump and put in new
oil ret it stop working In a minute or two.
I can disconnect the oil pipe which the motor
is running ana draw on it wnen it wui Degin
to pump, but It will not continue. Please
give me soma Idea as to the causes and
remedy, a. A. B.
A. If the gears of the gear pump
are badly worn you won't get a very
good feed. Also the level In the
rcrankease must be high enough so
that the feeding line gets a full sup
ply and never Is uncovered. I as
sums you are certain there la no ob
structlon In the oil Una to the pump.

Q. What causes the unit coll to become so

My engine falls to start after running In Up

sticky with a gum-tlke substance that they
would not work. Doe tola destroy the colli
wcat can i aoi sua. u. b.
A. Sticking usually Is caused by
dirt. If it is a gummy substance It
might be from oil, but there Is no
need for oil on the vibrators. Keep
the points free from dirt and they
will not gum. It does not destroy
the colls. You can get new points,
which la cheaper than getting new
colls. Let me advise you to keep the
vibrator points even and clean by
requent Inspection and occasional fl
ing with a fine file. Keep the cover
Q. I have had a Bomber ef troubles with
my Maxwell racer. After several garages
had failed to do It any good, I put en a new
cylinder bead, new pistons and carburetor,
but It continues to miss lire, sputter and gen
erally give unsatisfactory service. I had my
magneto overhauled, putting In new brushes,
platinum points, etc. I have recently or
dered a Schebler special model carburetor.
What do yoa think of It? I have an Idea
that a shortened Intake manifold wui help
matter. Please advlae me. Dr. F. H. L.
A. If you are using a simple grav
ity feed your trouble might be caused
by too high a float level, which can
easily be remedied by adjustment.
If you are using pressure on the gas,
stop It. because there Is head enough
to get proper flow. I do not think
that the cutting down of the mani
fold would atop the misfiring unless
the misfiring occurs only at slow mo
tor speeds, and then the long mini-
Famous For Its Marvelous Motor
fold might have something to do
with It. You do not say when this
misfiring occurs and whether or not
It ever stops and under what condi
tions. You see, if it Is continuous.
I might suspect that the cams are
badly worn and the timing thrown
out a little; but I do not want to say
that without knowing Just how the
motor acts all the time. "Bear In
mind that you can not expect the
motor to flro evenly If you run with
excessive oil feed. You can tell Just
what is happening to the plugs by
noticing If the points are oiled up
after a few minutes running. Try
1. Get the float level a trifle lower
and make sure there is a free flow
of gas to the front bowl. Don't have
any bad bends In the fuel line.
.2. Cut down the oil level If it Is
3. Check over the three systems
causing misfiring carburetlon. Igni
tion, valvlng and also make sure
there Is no carbon or manifold or cyl
inder air leaks.
a I have a Ford and have Just Installed a
Bosch magneto. What spark plugs should X
see? Can you tall me anything about tbe
magneto and do you think It will Improve
the Ford? V. H. 8.
A. There are so many good makes
of plugs on the market that I Just do
not know of any one make I can se
lect as the best. Champion plugs
give good results, Splitdorf green
Jacket plugs are fine, so Is the Herx
Pro-Mo-Tor a special Ford type. I
wish you would tell me exactly what
you want to know about the Bosch
magneto, whether something about its
construction, operation or care. I
think you will get better results from
It than the regular Ignition system.

promises to play a large part In the
bringing about of greater trucking
efficiency. The, Packard company Is
doing everything In Its power to
bring home to the owners of the 20,

the vital importance of the "return
One of the developments along this
line Is the creation of "return load
bureaus" In the large cities of the
country. Packard truck sales man
agers have either been the prime
movers or aided in the establish
ments of such bureaus In many
places. The result Is that many
freight cars are belag saved to move
other freight and that a great deal
of time Is being saved from one ship
ping point to another. .
"One of the possibilities of this
year of gTeat promised crops." says
R. E. Chamberlain, the Packard fac
tory truck sales manager, "is the re
lief that trucks can afford to the
farmer. Hundreds of trucks are go
ing out from hundreds of cities with
loads and coming back empty. Steps
should be taken at once to send these
trucks back with loads from the
farms or farming communities. It
can be done and we hope that Pack
ard truck owners everywhere will
do their share toward this movement"
