Tremendous Loss in Mileage
' Results hrom Under-In- :
ion, Said
Under-inflation of balloon tire
costs the owner Just 700 miles of
service per pound under the cor
rect pressure, according to the re
sults of a series of experiments by
the Ford Motor company. These
experiments' were conducted in
connection with a campaign to
help Ford car owners get the most
out of their tires.
- To determine at Just -which
point the Ford size balloon tires
29x4.40 yielded the maximum
comfort to passengers, consistent
with maximum mileage, all makes
of Ures were tested. At the end
of the test period, the exact loss
per. pound of under-inflation was
calculated in terms of mileage and
a bulletin was sent to Ford deal
ers and service stations advising
the correct pressures.
A number of common tire ail
ments were traced directly, hack to
under-inflation. Among , the .most
common -are -rim -cuts,, tread sepa
ration, , , over-heating and -rstone
bruising p in addition : to a more
rapids rate ot natural wear, and de
terioration. -. ". ':" : j t v ' ,
On the other hand, every pound
of over-inflation takes its -toll of
comfort tand : the- -fundamental
value of balloon equipment Is lost.
Other advantages or low pressure
tires, namely greater traction,
ability to travel over soft ground
without : sinking ' n&d quick stop
ping without skidding, - are also
nullified in a direct ratio to the
extent of the excessive , air' pres-
Ure." f . f -f : I ; ' - J : ; .

posal to 'Change .
Supporting:,; the stand of ;the

tors of the National Automobile

t Tbe Issue was Introduced at the
recent contention or tne American
Automobile 'Association' represent
ing" the automobile clnbsVr and red'

dorsed. V- - k
While various theories have
been -propounded In -faror of yel-
1q w, the automobile manufacturers
feel that common usage and prac
ticality are in faTor of maintaining
the -present: -system Tbe 'reasons
in detail for tbeir stand are stated
as tonows: :T- f 'r-'-'- '
1. It is now in use on 20,000,000
vehicles. '-''' . "-rt,
rt 2. Tlve extent of such use creates
a public tradition - and familiarity
to a much greater degree than any
one lighting tradition' that may
obtain;- .' '';'-J ' - - -' -l
I 3. vTo change Uorty-eight state j
laws and the habit of the motor
traveling- public in this particular
is an unwarranted interference un
less its value as'a safety measure
can be thoroughly -demonstrated.
? 4. There is no extensive or con
cluslre data - to indicate that the
red tall-light is the cause ' of ac
cidents. - ' Vi; '
t 'S. Railroad officials have stated
that - motorists hare run around
red lights at crossing gates, think
ing that the flight " has indicated i
an automobile. -: - ' ' ' -"'
. -This could be remedied Input
ting more' lights on 4he crossing
gates, and in any case the motorist
who would cuts around any light
without'seelng where he was going
would probably not be affected by
the matter of color. - . r
1 . Ttellow-light is regarded by
many-- as confusing,- "With eyes
trained to a red light a tail-light,
the presence of the -yellow light
in that "Capacity gives the impres
sion of a parking light or of some
other signal which? is confusing to

the sun by Dr. E. Petit of the Mt.
Wilson Observatory staff of the
Carnegie institution,
f The apparatus will be installed
in the Desert sanatorium here by
Dir. D. Tr MacDougal of the Car
negie Desert-? Laboratory.
' ."The-' instrument ; apparatus is
capable of great precision and will
prove "invaluable in studying the
benefits of various light waves to
patients,? said Dr. MacDougal. "It
consists I essentially of a - small
chamber containing a thermo
couple sensitive to the short rays.
The-chamber is mounted on , an
astronomical clock which focusses
a tubular lens opening directly on
the sun throughout the day.
