J. Hartmann, president of Ziebart Process Corporation. Hartmann said, "A number of people have complained to us recently that the paint on tbeir automobiles is not re- taining its brilliance and, in some cases, that it is actually pitting and deteriorating. On further investigation, we have found that these people are fre- quent users of coin-operated car washes. "Questioning these com- plainants, we have found that they have the habit of trying to get in and out of the coin- operated washes as quickly as possible in order to save spend- ing an extra coin for additional minutes of wash time. "The said Hartmann, "is that they may have saved an additional quarter but they leave the wash without com- pleting the job. LETHBRIDGE BATTERY CO. 217 12th ST.

Close air in- take with clotii. Prime cylinders with a half teaspoon of gaso- line. Advance spark little more than usual because- of lag in ignition. Soak cloth with gaso- line and put in air intake so gas can be drawn into cy- linders. Keep throttle well open. Warm carburetor, being sure no water gets into air intake. This advice, which should serve you well if you drive a 1909 model car, is contained in a fascinating volume, "Automo- bile Driving Self-Taught" Along with "Engelman's Auto- the book has been re- issued by Chilton Book Com pany as a contribution to the nostalgia craze which is sweep- ing the country. Originally published in 1909, the Russell book predated the time of strict auto licensing and universally available repair service. Each intrepid motorist was his own driving teacher and often his own mechanic. Indeed, the vagaries of the old-time car made the job of the novice driver difficult in- deed. Russell advised that "the garage should have a large door at each end to save a lot of time and trouble reversing." In addition, owners were plagued by constant tire trouble, the necessity of ad- vancing or retarding the spark frequently and maneuvering the car along muddy or rutted road- ways. Yet some of the advice offer- ed in the two volumes would benefit today's car owner. Engelman writes, "Much of the satisfaction that an auto- mobile gives depends on the driver. If he neglects his auto- mobile, if he does not lubricate it, or if he tinkers with it too much, he is bound to receive unsatisfactory service." He continues, ''Your satis- faction will be greatly increas- ed if you will learn the details of your automobile." Since the motorist- of earlier times was considered more of a sportsman than, say, a young mother shepherding the kids to the Brownie meeting, rales of the road were important. Engelman admonished, "Don't curse police officers. It is your duty as a citizen to understand the rules of street traffic, rules which the police help enforce." Of course, dealing with horses and "somnambulant" pedestri- ans also plagued the motorist of the early years. Warnings were issued that while city horses were becoming accus- tomed to automobiles, their rur- al counterparts were still car- shy. So caution was urged. Both of these volumes are valuable additions to any car buff's library. Even if your buf- fery is hike-warm you'll find much to instruct and amuse in these two Chilton volumes.
