So certain have many motor ear drivers been that a moist atmosphere, or the addition of water vapor to the fuel mixture, has increased the power output of their motor, that "vapor izers" and "fuel-savers," designed to add water vapor to the fuel charge, have found a rather ready market. "Practical" tests seemed so con vincing that there appeared to be no necessity for laboratory trials; hut when the contest for the supremacy of the air made exact knowledge of the most minute details a necessity, the Bureau of Standards set about the crit ical examination of every device that promised to give airplanes more power with less weight. The addition of water vapor to fuel ■ mixtures was found to have no power whatever to increase motor output or and out materially increases the power output of a motor. It is a fact that Buick engineers found to their surprise that a motor on a block test gave more power with an exhaust manifold and pipe attach ed than without them, and that they to improve fuel economy, passes another of our popular fallac With it should go the false im ies. pression that opening a muffler cut The gain in power is This at medium and determined by trial that the output was a maximum with a certain length of pipe, due to the "ejector" action of the stream of exhaust gases, which action is impaired, if not actually destroyed, by opening the muffler cut-out. is particularly true low speeds. The impression that a motor is more powerful with the cut-out open Is due to an illusion. The noise of the exhaust has the same psychological effect as a big voice. It conveys an impression of power, but it is neither A measure of power nor an evidence oT it. The nerve-racking effect of the muf fier cut-out is unquestioned, and its use in public places is severely pun ished in many places—rightly, too, for the pleasure of one should not be obtained at the annoyance of many. COMMENDS DR. L1NDLEY. President E. H. Lindley of the Uni versity of Idaho, in an Interview given out a few days ago on his return from a trip through the east, states that there is more unrest throughout the east than in the west, and that the im pression seems to be stxong that if labor does not get back to fuller pro duction we cannot look He states that the agricul for lower prices. tural sitation is satisfactory, because the farmers are not striking, dent Lindley suggests, rightly we, be lieve, that the best remedy tor pres ent conditions is for everybody to do a full day's wox-k, in order that the pro duction of necessities may catch. up After all, the pron Presi with the demand, lem is almost entirely one of supply and demand, with a little profiteering the side, perhaps.—Palouse Rc on public. • . i IN IIEPORTED FIRE NEIGHBORHOOD OF FRENCH HOMESTEAD SERIOUS An alarming report was brought to Moscow this morning by telephone to Mrs. F. Kelly to the effect that there is a bad forest fire raging in the vi cinity of the Princeton road at the top -of the mountain and that the claim of W. T. French was almost entirely sur rounded by menacing flames. French is a brother of Mrs. Kelly, and she naturalfy felt great anxiety about the fate of the numerous French fam ily. M. E. Lewis reported that in a recent trip through that part of the woods, he had seen a fire at least ton j miles long which looked vrvy >'•; ' as though it had been set at regular intervals throughout its course. As the Rawson sawmill is in the neighborhood of the French timber .Mr. claim, a Star-Mirror reporter called upon Mrs. Rawson to learn what she had been told of the fire. Mrs. Rawson stated that ner hus band had gone up to the mill yester day to investigate the fire, and that she had heard nothing serious from him with reference to it. "I believe that the reports of the gravity of the fire have been exag gerated," said Mrs, Rawson. "Up to this time at least it is not burning over any good timber land. So far it is burning some cut-over lands, where the timber was not of any value, and where every stick of saleable mater ial had already been taken off the land, it is burning on the place that is known as the Hill Homestead and the Tom Scott place. 1 do not be lieve the French family can be in any danger at the present time." Mrs. Rawson said that the fire had been burning for some days, but she did not offer any theories as to how it had been started. Another persons, who lives in the region of Viola, de clared that the fire was due to the careless burning of shavings, but proof of this statement could not be obtained before The Star-Mirror went to press. The extremely dangerous practice of burning slashings has recently been indulged in by some farmers in the timbered regions, and these fires when not closely watched may have caused the present blaze on the mountain. LATER.—Just as The Star-Mirror is going to press, word comes from Mr. Rawson at his mill that there is no truth in the statement that the fire has assumed alarming proportions. In fact the fire is less extensive and less fierce than it was yesterday at this time. Unless a heavy wind comes up, no doubt the fire will gradually die down without doing harm of any kind. UNIVERSITY CATALOG EARNS HIGH PRAISE BOOK GOTTEN OUT BY STAR-MIR ROR PLANT RANKS AMONG TWO REST IN UNITED STATES The Star-Mirror recently received a very handsome compliment on the character of the job work which it turns out from its print shop depart ment. Upon the request of a univer catalog efficiency expert residing in the east, H. L. Axtell, chairman of the university publications committee, sent on a copy of the University of Idaho catalog issued by The Star Mirror this spring, In commenting upon the character of the catalog and Us merits as pared with those of all other univer sities in the entile country, the pert stated that "both as to mechanic al execution and as to arrant the University of Idaho catalog of the two best in the United States." This high praise reflects credit upon both Mr. Axtell who is responsible for the arx-angement of the text and upon John F. Yost, who as foreman of The Star-Mirror print shop is ble for the admirable work on the catalog. been in Moscow for 14 years and lias gotten out the university catalog seven coixx ex iment, is one responsi mechanical Mr. Yost has 4*4 \ 4 i A I ♦% I : : ♦> 4.4 : SHERFEY'S BOOK STORE : : : V : A : : A : : a A 13 ♦ A t : A t A : : V V ❖ t A ANNOUNCES ❖ : * Î A V : The BIG BOOK ❖ V ❖ ❖ ❖ ❖ ❖ ❖ OF THE SEASON A ❖ : ❖ X ❖ V ❖ A : A ? : A *J* ♦ The Re-Creation of Brian Kent ❖ ♦14 : *:* ♦14 X 4*4 414 ♦ 4 * 414 X A 414 : A 414 : :*:* t ❖ A 414 : 414 X 414 4 414 ♦ X *4* 414 : 4*4 ^ 4.4 ^ J 4^,4 414 By HAROLD BELL WRIGHT on sale at : : ♦14 4.4 : X A 414 I ❖ 414 Sberfey's Book Store : * 414 * 4*4 X *:* 414 : * 414 The Home of the VICTROLA and EASTMAN KODAKS "If it's new we are the first to have it X A * * 4*4 4 ❖ 4 4*4 A ♦ * ^♦4*44*44*44*44*44*44*44*44*4 4*44*44*44*44*44*44*44*44*44*44*44*44j44*44j44j44*44*44jM.*44j»4j44>4j44*44>^44*44*44j» ,times. That is to say, that by severe competitive bidding, he has obtained the contract for the work fifty per cent of the time. It is conceded by every person in the university who has handled the catalog for a number of years, that the issues made here in Moscow*- by The Star-Mirror plant are far and away the best the institu tion has ever had.
