Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 5, 1920, Lethbridge, Alberta PAGE TWELVE THE LETHRRmGE DAH-V SATURDAY, JUNE 5, 1920 J920T0BEBIGYEJPIIH IBERIA I Ontario Lead Provinces in This Mailer; Motor Publica- tion Reviews Situation Tut your shoulder to the wheel! Overshadowing all other problems facing the Manitoba motorist today Is the roadbailifns program for While Winnipeg Is particularly fortunate with regard to roadf, even need to venture but a thort distance, from tho "iwrder" to reCQgniie grave need cf better roads to iriako motoring alt it's sracfced up to fee. What Eliall b'o useJ in building new roads Is comparatively unim- portant with tho question of doing iOmeteins toward road-building. JlSultoba f.eems to be behind the procession' in the good-roads move- ment, which, during the noit fears, have a big influence on the growth of the country. It has no particular bearing on the local situation, it is interest, ing to note (hat. IhougU the various candidates for the presidency of the United States may differ almost rad- ically on most everything from the high cost of living to the best meth- ods of handling the league of na- tions, '.riihout a single exception all candidates arc in favor of good roads. Road Boosters' In the April issue, of their house- organ, The Starter, a motor mazarine, gets behind the Good Roads movement in a very practical way. In a mess- age to its dealers, this automobile concern points out movement deserves their support both as citizens of Canada and as automo- bile merchants. Moreover, it brings an opportunity as well as u duty. In a general review ot the work being ilone throushoutjthe Dominion, The Starter states that Ontario's contribution to the good roads movement will be greater than that of any other province. "The; gov- ernment's recent announcement cf its policy of promoting a number of provincial in all 1.S24 of encouraging the improvement, of back concession reads and approaches 16 villages, has stimulated county cotficils to the greatest cooperation." In Quebec, it is stated, much work of a local nature is being done throughout the 'province. The pro- vincial program is more extensive than anything heretofore in' Quebec. Alberta in Swing .This 'voan-huiidins' program in Alberta during 1820 will be a record one. In the neighborhood of miles of read will coino nnder gov-. eniment supervision. The Yellow- head highway from Edmonton to Jasper Park and through. that fa- mous scenic resort IE .shortly tp be- come a reality, and in addition, with- in .the next few yearn, the province is certain 'to put'in a tremendous amount' of work on the improvement and construction main trunk highways. Within a period of a. Jow years there should bo good Eervice- able roads ramifying all sections o! this province.' The cost ,of tuat will amount to many millions; but service Tendered will be iuestiuiahle value the growlli and prosperity of Alberta- It 's deemed unwise, except in iso- lated rural districts, to assume that any road should bo designed with a view to being used solely by light motor vebicies. Experience, has proved that inmiedmttly a hard I sruucth pavement constructed freight vehicles begin to use- it, which is butjiiaturat since it opens to commerce hitherto inaccessible T territory and enables farmers to use 1 motor truci's on roads which before' improvement, were usable- only .bv light automobiles or horse-drawn vehicles. Build Best Obtainable Unless we liuild the very hest ob- tainable, what will the highway construction and maintenance bill amount to five years hence? What and will bo the ments of highway's which will prop- erly carry the traffic volume and tonnage of the next decade.? It is a hard; Question to answer, since man- ufacturers and users will take but little cognizance ot highway WHAT BRAKES WILL AND WILL NOT DO Brakes exert their.'greatest effect just before the wheels stop and tho tires begin to skid. One. brake gradually ap- plied will give better results on the level o-' ou up grades than when either eno or'both arc suddeuly applied. Brakes unevenly 'adjusted will throw a vehicle sidewiso out of its'irack. Sudden application of holh foot find 'emergency traces hastens the "slewing" of the vehicle from Its track and the period during which the whcJe dependence is on the skidding friction of the tires. This statement does not apuly to steep down grades. Drakes, applied so as to lock the; wheels': prevent using the as. a.bmko. .Two brakes, foot and em- ergehcy, when the- first one- applied is in good condition, wiil not slop the vehicle on lorel or up grades as quickly" as cno. Brakes will not stop a ve- lucle in as short .a space when they lock the wheeis and cause skidding as when .they are applied to the point just short of locking the wheels. Brakes will not give proper results .when'only the braking surface- is bearing, because ot uneven adjustment on different wheels, because .one shoe tears oaly a part ot braking surf ace, because oil Is dripping on the brakes., or because brake lining is gone from that porlion, of the braking surface which Is bearing. TIRl Game as Their Name Chance never cfreiu a neat picture nor built a fair home. t In the making of Partridge Tires nothing is left to perfection is secured by craftmanship sclentifi- cally directed, and rigid inspection insures out- lUnding quality. Partndje Tires arc all that good Ttrei csnponi- bly tw. and wp.! lie governed only the demands ot Industry Tor transportation facilities. A knowledge of these ttctG t-uoDgthcns the conTiction that the policy o( building foundations Inca- pubta of bearing the heavy freight trucks is economically unsound and since the foundations and pave- ments built for freight traffic are suitable' for light vehicles, the course to bo pursued by highway officials should fee obvious. Thei tremendous increase !n gaso- line consumption makes it especially desirable and necessary to reduce grades to the mlttlmuiu. Highway bridges should be designed for not less lhau twenty-ten loading, as- suming tbat 75 per cent. o( thi load is carried on the rear axle. LOAN RUMOR DENIED LOXDOX. June Heater's dis- patch ttom Home says the statement that the Italian government is obtain- ing a loan of thirty billion lite in the United States, in return for the to- bacco monopoly, is semi-offlcially de- nied. The dispatch declares that the- govcrnment never has entertained the Idea of ceding any monopoly, A Soviet mission Is on tho way tc China to strengthen trade and diplo- matic relations between that countr and lied Russia.'
