Instrumental in Increasing Number of Sail and Power Boats Here. The possibility of successfully con iuctlng yacht races between the vari ous sailing craft owned by local and nearby lovers of this sport was dem onstrated by the Raritan Yacht Club race Saturday afternoon. Although Lhe flrst of the season, and somewhat Df an experiment, It brought forth sight entries and a large amount of enthusiasm and interest. The course ■vas to havo been twice around the monument and return but owing to he adverse weather conditions at .lie close of the first round It was iecmed advisable to draw the race to l close. A triangular course for such races Is popular among many yachtsmen and In the opinion of many make ;he race more interesting. As there ire not enough boats of ono design 10 form a class for racing in local naters the timo allowance system Is made necessary. By giving the lamo sr ellghtly changing the time allow mce of the various boats for two or three races, a rating could be decid ed upon by which the handicaps could be ailoted so as to make the race even for all entries. Sailboat racing was at one time »ne of the principal sports of this city, local men owning some of the fastest yachts to be found in these tnd New York waters. For a while tho sport died down but this year, under the direction of the Yacht 2Iub, racing Is again being resumed ind Interest Is being manifested by lallboat owners and those desirous of owning a small yacht. The boats which enter these races vary in length from fifteen feet to forty feet, the allowances being given so that the small boat has Just as even a chance as the larger to cross the finish line a winner. Local conditions aro favorable for competition, being boats of small di mensions somewhat similar to the famous Butterfly class of sailboats, rheae small boats are not costly, but furnish as much sport as tho larger and more elaborate yachts. These smaller boats can bo built for about ane hundred dollars and four or five or more would furnish some Inter esting races. More motorboats are to be found In local waters this season which llso shows tho renewed Interest be ing taken In this pleasant way of spending one's leisure time. The Deople of Perth Amboy, It seems, are lust awakening to the advantages of ierod them In the way of amusement ind healthy pastimes on the waters ilong our shores. New boats of all lescrlptlons are met from time to :ime, each owner having his idea of *. model boat which meet his Ideals. 3ome are tho posseqfors of speed joats which cut through the water from fifteen · miles an il|uir upward i^rJaile others hive ;hough slow are fitted up for Ideal ;rulslng.

With the war cloud hanging over the realm of sports, It Is not likely that Middlesex county fans will get an opportunity to see the Riverside basketball team In action on the court this year, and it Is even likely that when the Rivies gather at their testimonial dinner at the New Packer House this Saturday night that it will mark tho disbanding of the team that has long thrilled local followers of the court game.

Tlils high regard for "Scooter," who Is one of the I original dyed-ln-the-wool Rivies, has prompted his teammates to mark his advent Into the matrimonial circles with the dinner.

NEW PERFECTION OIL qKfe^TOVE Hints ^Motorist ByAlbertL.Clough e^TrL·^· Distinguishing Carburetor Prom Ignition Troubles. HEN the engin· falls to run or falls to run properly the probably ties are that either the carburetor or the Ignition system Is Λ fault and It som«tlmaa puizlea the operator to find out which Is to blame. Assuming that the engine stops dead al.'«r a period of gradually weakening explosions, ending perhaps with Irregular firing and possibly "popping*" la the carburetor, It Is most likely that a lack of gaso line is the trouble. If on the other hand It stops suddenly without any warn ing in the way of weakening Impulsée or stops after a short period of missing but without any weakening of the individual Impulses, the trouble Is more likely with the Ignition. To decide certainly which of the two functions haa failed, one should aaoertaln whether there is fuel In the carburetor float chamber. Some float-chambers are of glwvs, enabling this to be determined at a glance, while with others it I· neoeseary to operate the float In the fuel-bowl, by means of the primer or tlf'jler. If the carburetor is empty the float will be felt and heard to operate dry, and If fuol does not run Into the bowl and ultimately begin to drip out from around the carburetor, It la evident that the engine has stopped from lack of fuel. If, on the contrary, the float operates aa if Immersed In liquid and continued priming causée a dripping of gasoline, the ignition system falls under suspicion. In order to settle thla point the cable-terminals should be detached from their spark plugs and their eada adjusted so as to be slightly separated (S-K-inoh or so) from some metal part of the engine. The engine should then be turned over by the starter or cranked over by hand with the ignltloe switch on, and If sparks do not pass from the cable clips to the Iron or only very Irregular and feeble ones oceur, Ignition dlfflcultiea are probable. If an engine has stalled and priming the cylinders will causa It to run regularly for a time and then stop, the trouble la with the carburation and not with thp Ιση It Inn CARING for generators. D.

Answer: If this were not don· and the engine was run long enough to wear Its cylinders somewhat, there would be a slight shoulder formed at the highest point reached by the piston head. Then, if th· bearings became slightly loose th· pistons might be permitted to move slightly higher, hitting this shoulder and causing α pound. teresti of the automobile owner and operator.
