THE OAYTON NEWS. TOO MANY ELECTRICAL ACCES SOMES MAY DIIAIN BATTIIHY It is difficult for the motorist to day lo carry liimsolf back Ion or twolvo years, to Iho lime wlion all raw woro cranked by hand and wlion the most powerful headlights woro dopondont upon acolylone roa for tholr brillianoy. Dut let the battery go "bad,". and lot tho averago man get out lo crank his car orí a rainy night, wUh Uio road anklcv-dccp in mud, and ho will realizo hoW deeply ho is indebted lo the storage battery for much of his motoring comfort. Not only s his engine started and hiB way illuminated at the touch of i button but numerous othor con veniences have been added which, a few years ago would have been considered foolish flights of the im agination. Many of the luxurious sedans of loday arc utpiippod by the manufac turer with electric cigar lighters, I'loctric stop illuminators, and nu merous other electrical appliances thai add lo the comfort and Joy of motoring. Where such appliances are stand ard uiuipmen(, installed by Ihc man ufacturer of the car, it can be taken for granted that they do not make too great n demand on the capacity of the storage battery. The car tie signers have seen to that. Hut some car owners add so many electrical contrivances that, in the aggregate, they are a heavy drain nn the battery. This is sometimes tine of the reasons for its apparent inability lo retain a charge. Mr. J. Allen Wikoff, manager of I he local Exidc station, says on this Hiih.iec(,"Hcatiiig devices of any kind, such as electric vulennizors, electric eignr lighters, electric steering wheel warmers, ele., consume far more current than does the ordinary light hull). And willi the average owner using his cur in the winter only for short runs very often at night his gen era tor can only put into his bat tery a limited amount of electrical energy. If I here is added too many elecric applliances which consume current in excess nf what Hie de signers intended should be drawn from Iho battery, it is easy to see what will happen. It is the old case nf "burning the canille at both ends. It simply can't be dono for any length of lime. "Those various elect ric appliances are good things. They add lo the joy and convenience of motoring. Hut before loo many are added, it would he well to consult a reliable service slution and see that the bat lory is in condition to stand the additional work imposed upon il. "With very liltle trouble the gen erator can lie adjusted to give more eurrent if necessary, but the com petent service man can readily tell if this is necessary, l'lay safe; ask him first, if you would gel the ut most from your battery." under an amendment lo the tax re vision bill adopted today by'the son ato without a record voto.
