Etieiine PlanrhP, who designed the Petigot. engine (tlie fastest engine in tlie world) and now is chief engineer of the builders of Clray-Dort cars, says It. will be a hard task to get the public to say "engine" instead of "motor." Tint the sbeicty of automobile engineers has isBued an edict declaring be drawn somewhere, and |i has been decided to leave the term 'motor' to the electric Held and to apply 'en^ini;' to the power plant of the car." Very often a top Is ruined by folding it while wet or damp. It should be allowed to remain open until quite dry. Do not use gasoline for removing spots or grease. Gasoline tends to dissolve the rubber in the fabric nnd causes It to blister. I'se a good t-oup and warm water for washing tlio top. U the screws that hold the small brans brackets to the vibrator box become, worn so that they do not hold, do not use longer screws. Longer screws may injure the windings of the coil and spoil the vibrator. Holler put a metal band rlrnr around the box and attach to dash with small bolts. Hold your hand over the breathing tube occasionally while engine is running to see if air is passing out. If breathing tube gets clogged it. puts ti back pressure on pistons that pulls down the power of lho motor. An efficient cartridge lock for Fords is set in the floor of the car nnd serves as a magneto circuit breaker, pressure on the foot lever automatically shutting off I lie engine and stopping the car. A serial key is used to unlock the car. making it. unnoces- j sary to use the regular coil switch I key. The contraption costs SO cents.

A useful trick is to place the graphite grease in an oil can and set it over a hot flame. When melted the greaso is squirted in between 1 tlie loaves, especially the part dose to the holts that hold them to the, axle. As squeaks frequently come from this part this is especially recommended. It puts grapMte greaso Into places which it could not roach otherwise. Watch "DunlopTires" in the emergency. There's a wealth of security in that re-sponse to the brake. SPECIAL" - "TRACTION "IBB But squeaks do not always come from the springs. After spending enough time on them, lake an oil gun and squirt oil wherever two metal surfaces come together. Hood and radiator, or dash, fenders, running board brackets or anywhere else. Squirt it with plenty of force and you will probably stop it. A novel combination of car lock nnd tilting steering wheel is offered in a device which provides for splitting tho wheel In tho middle at the pressure of a button, tlio half toward the driver dropping down agnlnst an attachment on the stooring column.

There need be no confusion in selecting1 the sound value at the same price-male, comparisons and see if Willys-Overland docs not spell the answer with mathc-'mr.tical correctness. Do not miss the significance of the overwhelming production that makes it possible for us to give better cars at lovicr prices.

The many stops, the slowing down, the jumping from low to high speed. That tries a motor. Tries it for flexibility, gives it a real fuel test. Here then is a sane test of the Chalmers. It's official from the American Automobile Association. A Chalmers 7-passenger taken from stock ran for 24 hours on high gear through Chicago's dense traffic. . The engine never stopped. Four passengers were carried. The driver was an amateur. A total mileage of586.8 was piled up, breaking every previous test by 228 wiles. I This gives some idea of the amazing flexibility of the car. Its perfect cooling. Its ease of control. But note. This run wps made on 14 miles to the gallon of gasoline.~k There is a surprise awaiting you when you step in behind tho wheel of this smart car.
