I A large Western department store i

agement ol the shop then engaged a big :
legitimate theatre and showed It exclusively
to the patrons of the store,
giving a ticket of admission with every
purchase of <1.00 or over.
The firm did an enormous business,
as the production was viewed by 30,000 |

The result is an entirely new opening '
for this particular play. "Jack and the

"The greatest engine in the world,"
experts who know the best product
of the French, English, Italian and
German airplane factories call it.
And this judgment has been completely
established by tests far more
severe than those of any other nation,
conducted by the United States bureau
of standards.
One hundred and forty miles an
hour?two and a third miles a minute
?is the speed with which this eightcylinder
engine will drive American
battle-planes through the air. This
is equal almost to the best speed foreign
builders have attained with their
scout planes, in which everything Is
sacrificed for speed. The American
battleplanes, heavily armed and carrying
two men, will bo able to overtake
and destroy the fastest of the
German scouts.
About two pounds to the horsepower?330

weighing 650 pounds?is the secret of

Three men can easily lift It ami
and yet it will drive two men In au
airplane weighing half a ton through
the air at twice the speed of the
"Twentieth Century Limited."
Fifty hours run under load?two
full days on end?was thfc final ordeal
to which the engine was submitted
to test its endurance to the limit
The oriignal schedule permitted minor
adjustments at the end of each
five hours; but in the actual test the
engine was running so smoothly at
the end of the first five-hour period
that it was not touched until 10
hours had elapsed. In ton hours a
fleet of American battle planes driven
by these motors could make the run
from London to Berlin and return,
pausing on their way to do full Justice
to the Krupp works in Essen.
The first of these wonderful engines
was built within 21 days after the
idea for its general plan of construction
was conceived. After the lines
were laid down on paper there was
never any doubt about its being a good
engine, for there was no feature in
it that had not been tried out in one
of the best foreign engines. The only
novelty lay In the way In which these
parts, urawn irorn mo worm s uesi
experience, were combined.
But there wero questions as to just
ho wgood it would be and how rapidly
the "bugs"?small detects and
constructional difficulties?could be
removed. Every new machjne is
bound to havo "bugs" and often it
takes longer to clear them out than
to perfect the basic designs. In the
preliminary tests nearly six weeks
ago, all kinds of "bugs" showed up.
There was trouble with valves, intakes,
oil pumps and a scoro of small
parts whose names mean nothing to
the layman. The engine wouldn't deliver
the power for which it was designed.
The critics?the know-it-alls
?said "I told you so. You were foolis
to attempt in two months what
the best designers of Europe have
been striving after for three weary
years. It can't b? done."
But Vincent and Hall, the two American
engineers foremost in the development
of the Ali-American motor,

more than a month they and the
greatest gas engine experts in Amer
ica, called in consultation, worked ov
er each part?improving this part, re
adjusting that, finding the "hugs" and
chasing them out oC the engine.
They were never satisfied and are
not yet, for they still see chances for
improvement. But at last they reached
a stage when all agreed the time
for the real tests had come.
Then their faith was vindicated
From the first test to the long fiftyhour
run, the engine showed its class.
Every requirement was met; every
prediction was Justified. They had
proved the United States need not
waste years or months going to school
to foreign engine builders.
Now the engine has been sent to
Pike's Peak to be tested at flying al
tltudes?13,000 feet?where all the ag
gravating effects of extreme cold and

America has reason to be proud ol
this achievement. Such an engine is
