Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - June 16, 1917, Lethbridge, Alberta k 5ATU , JUNE 16, 1917 fHK IJETHBRIDGB DAILY HERALD PAGE NINE Exhaust Echoes Garage Gossip NEWS OF THE AUTO WORLD Citizens See "Movies" of the Death Valley Dodge With the Motorists of South Alberta ^floveral cltitena had the' pleasure ��witnessing this week the moving Hcturcs of the Dodge auto works, |vnd the "Death Valley Dodge," the :ar that made successfully the peril-bus trip through thb Veath Valley In !Iall(prnta, Tho pictures wore shown at the gar-go of the Motor Sates, Ltd., agants or- the' Dodge car, and wore very clear and moat entertaining. The plc-ures wore shown with a apeeial inn- thlno just purchased by the agency ml' which Will"be used for advortls-ng ..purposes through Southern' Al-lertu. . ;*The first three reels of pictures hoyed the* various portions of. the huge Dodge motor works outside of Detroit. These pictures were very comprehensive, and.gave one a splendid idea-of the huge plant, and the workmanship that 1ft put into the cars to make them among the most durable, on .the road. The last two reels of the pictures showed the trip ot the Death Valley Dodge car, driven from Log Angeles through the Death Valley* and return Tin the Yosemite to the starting point. The. Death Valley has seen Beveral a,uto parties perish for lack of water for them Is practically no vegetation ot much account for mites upon miles. The trip in exceedingly rough and at times perilous, but the Dodge car, a regular stock car, made the trip without mishap and'without injury of any kind. ' .CCURACY TO A HAIR DE-IANDED BY STUDEBAKER |lust What Studebaker Requires of'It* Manufacturing De-partnient in Produc-, tioil of Autos "One ohe-thousandth of an inch is II difference to small that should the various parts of a motor vary from :he standard measurement by several times that amount it would seem that it would make no difference," says J, E. Grady, sales manager ot tho Studebaker Corporation, Walkervllle, Ont. "Yet we bollove a difference of one. ono-thousandth of an inch is Just, the difference between success and failure. "In time any motor will show signs of wear and, for that reason, manufacturers of motor cars have made a great many of the parts used in their :ars adjustable. It an inspector passed a part that varied more than one ono-thousandth of an inch, the wear on th|s part begins immediately in an uneven manner which means rapid deterioration. And tor that reason we have' many Inspectors spending all of their time with micrometers that measure with a scale in thousandths of indies. "With care that gives accuracy, the result is a motor with a smooth, sl-)nt flow- of power, making one in the dachine feel as If sliding through tho air. And, bocauBe of our accuracy in ie construction of Studebaker cars, the car continues to run smoothly, silently and; powerfully month after month. You will always find a perfectly adjusted Studebaker motor running noiselessly, except for the (ound of gas In the carburetor and the passage of exhaust through the muffler. "The ^accuracy of our inspection may readily be understood when I say that Studebaker gears must mesh within oqe ono-thousandth of an inch. Tfte fly wheel of tho Studebaker motor must he balanced to perfection. It is cast "of special gray iron, then Insorted in a machine and turned to a perfect roundness. The centre is bored out with perfect accuracy in raference to the circumference. In a test, if it develops that there is the fraction of an ounce difference in the weight of any side of a wheel, the I workman bores, or drills the heavy 1 Bide until the 'Wheel is brought exactly i to a balance, When his Work Is fln-' ished, the fly wheel .is a* perfectly balanced as the' balance wheel of a fine watch. "Here's another typical example of Studebaker accuracy. Studebaker cylinders are reamed out after they are cast. These reaming machines, which operate through jigs with unvarying accuraoy to one one-thousandth of an inch, cost about |6flOO each. Aa there are nearly 6,000 individual machines used . in making a. Studebaker automobile, many of them de mandlng accuracy to a hair, the fortune invested in machinery alone, Is . stupendous. But the Studebaker demand is for perfection, and after the I engineers decide what they heed, then ' the purchasing department is ordered to get it. There is no talk of price , when the Studebaker name and pros-| tige are concerned."

Warner, June 16.-A high class game of ball was witnessed in Warner yesterday, when the sugar boys csme ( down to try conclusions with the local i nine. Warner had their regular team i out and showed that with a little practise they will be able to uphold (be good name they have always held In' the past. Raymond went to b�t 'first,; but tho flrst Innings was scbreles*. Ill the second time up, Raymond got > three runs across, Warner getting one run in the third, and one in the itsth. In their halt of the eighth Warp.eJ got three runs home, end" the crpwd wfnt wild with joy, but tho joy was 'pnly of a temporary nature as Raymond connected with Old's offerings jn the flrBt of the ninth and rompaq' Id w|{h three more tallies. Warner tried bird to equalize matters in their half, but failed to connect, the game ended six to five in favor of Raymond.' ''The game was a good one, and there was not a great deal to choose between the teams. Snow for Raymond pitched an excellent brand of ball, appearing to have a little better variety then the Warner hurler. The fielding was food on both sides, but Raymond had a bad hole at second, which Warnpr discovered when It wan almost too late'.' Old and Ford, the Warner battery, played better ball than In the Magrath game', and after a little more practise will give the other teams in the south something to think about. 'Berg op, third fielded a faultless game, the gut-field was good, but the game was a pitchers' battle for half the innings, the batters going down in pile, two, three style.
