The alarm will go off and stay off,

From a Cerinun periodical, Klekl

h'ys run on 'pneumatic tires and are
fed from a double trolley line on which
rolls a small contact-making carriage,
connecte'd with a llexlble cable to the

varieel, as lis end is wound around a
take-up drum. Approaching cars have
to stop when passing each other, ex
change their cables and proceed again.
The cars are elrlve-n by two motors,
