Retaining of Its Classification

TIM MURNANE CORRECTS
F.xplodes Rumor That Minor League
Association Officers, Except
Farrell, Are Paid.
Tim Jlurnane, -writing to this week's
Sporting News, says:
"Your Peoria correspondent last
week was wrong when he said that the
Three-Eye league has been allowed to
remain in Class B. The association
and the national board simply recom
mended favorable action by the na
tional commission, and even the com
mission must put the matter tip to the
major leagues for ra'.ificat ion. I can't
see where anyone will be injured if ;
this league is given the same classifl- j
cation they have enjoyed for 10 years, j
The national commission believes in ,
building up and holding the friendly j
support of the minor leagues.

i In settins up a new sparking plug
the first thing to be seen to is that the
ends of the platinum sparking points
are flat and parallel. In cutting otr ttie i
wire for these points a pair of cutting j
pliers is used, with the result that the
ends are left in the shape of a broad
V. Now. as the sharp edges of the V
are likely to be at any angle to one an
other it generally happens that the ac
tual sparking areas are but little more
than equal to the diameter of a very
small pin. The natural result is that
a weak spark is produced, and the
novices may look for a very long time
before finding the real cause of it.
What is required for the highest point
of efficiency are two flat surfaces par
allel to and opposite one another sim
ple conditions, but difficult to fulfill.
It is important that the garage should
be free from moisture. Iampness, by
causing metallic parts, both ornn men-
tal and mechanical, to corrode, greatly
increases the labor necessary to keep
the car in good condition, also tending
to cause deterioration in such parts as
are not subject to frequent attention.
A moist atmosphere tends to kill the
