four quarts of Calol Flushing Oil.
Then start and operate the engine un
der its own power at a moderate idling
seed for from one to two minutes, by
which time all oil passages and inner
surfaces will have been changed by
the action of the flushing oil. Again
remove drain plug and when certain
that crankcase ia thoroughly drained,
replace plug and refill crankcase reser
voir with fresh Zerolene oil as speci
fied. Approximately eight quarts of
oil are required. When filling the res
ervoir through filler pipe care should
be taken that no dirt or other foreign
matter s carried into the engine with
the fresh oil.
Every 2,00 miles it is advisable to
remove the lower crankcase and clean
the oil strainer surounding the oil
pump suction pipe.
Clutch-32. Kvery 500 miles remove
plug from clutch bousing and allow old
oil to drain otf. 1'lug ia reached

Steering (iear Housing -29. Every
MX) miles use grease gun to till housing
with Zerolene Transmission Lubricant j
'H' through plug hole provided.
I Miver.-al Joints-13-16. Every 600
miles remove grease plug in front and
' rear universal joints and with grease j
gun fill joints with Zerolene Cup
Grease. These joint hold only a small
amount of grease, and ae they are con- j
jstantly in action and transmit a driv-1
ing power from engine to rear axle, it
is inqxrtant that they be kept well.'
Transmission 36. Every Ml miles .
remove oil level plug on side of trans-1
mission case, and, if no oil runs out.
use oil gun to inject Zerolene Trana- j
mission l.utncant "B" until it begin
to overflow through opening. Then re
place plug.
Every 2,H)Jmiles remove drain plug I
from bottom of case and allow all old
oil to dram. Then remove cover and
wash all gears, shafts and interior of ,
case with IVarl Oil (kerosene. ) When,
transmission is clean end thoroughly
drained replace drain plug end fill to j
correct level with Zerolene Transmis
sion Lubricant "B."
Hear Axle Housing- 21. Every 500
miles remove oil filling plug in rear
housing and use oil gun to inject Zero
lene Transmision Lubricant "A" until
it reaches level of elbow in filling
pile. Then replace plug.
Every 2,tXX) miles remove rear cap or
cover on housing and wash gears and
bearings with Pearl Oil (kerosene).
Wipe out all old oil and kerosene from I
tiottom housing with clean rags. Do
not use waste. Replace cover on hous
ing and fill with Zerolene Transmission
Lubricant "A" to proper level.
Note: As bearing in both transmis
sion and rear axle are entirely lubri
cated by splash from the revolving
gears, hard grease should never be
used ss a lubricant in either place.
Wheel Bearings- 3-18-26-41. Every
2,000 miles remove wheelt and wash
bearings and hubs thoroughly with
1'earl Oil (kerosene). Repack bearings
with fresh Zerolene Cup Grease and
replace wheels, being careful to get
proper adjustment on wheel bearings.
Springs. Every 500 miles, or when
ever springs squeak, clean off all dirt
and old oil and apply small quantity of
Standard Household Lubricant along
the edges of spring leaves. A small
brush may be used for this purpose, or
the oil applied by means of Standard
Household lubricant Handy Can with
spout attached.
Grease Co pa. -All grease cups should
be refilled with Zerolene Cup Grease
when empty. Part lubricated by
grease cup and the attention required
are as follows :
Daily, or every 100 mile one eom
i . teturn: Spring bolts (1-6-15-20-23-38-43),
steering knuckle bolts (2-25.)
steering gear drag link (24-30), cross
steering rod pins (4-27), clutch thrust
uher il'
Every 200 miles two complete ;
turn : Fan bearing im. water pump ,
shaft (5), steering gear (29-31).
Every 3X) miles two complete
turns: Starter gear shifting shaft
(9), clutch throwout yoke (SS), trans
mission control (12). pedal shaft (35),
rear axle pinion bearing (39), rear
wheel bearings (19-42).
(ieneral Lubrication. - Every 300
miles use squirt can to apply Zerolene
No. 3 to all joints and small working
parts not otherwise provided with lub
rication, such as starter gear shift rod
i (11), brake pedal (34), brake rod clevis
I pins (14-17-37-40), and all brake con-
nections. t are should bo take:: that
all oil holes and passages are fn a from
'dirt so that clean oil may reach the
surfaces to te lubricated.
Schedule of Lubrication :
Daily, or every 100 miles: Engine,
spring bolts; steering knuckle bolts;
steering gear drag link ; cross steering
rod pins; clutch thrust washer.

To the people of Hood River County :
Once a year the County Superintendent
of Schools is required to make a report
to the State Department of Education
in which detailed data is given on the
schools of the county. Since the pub
lie Bchools COSt mure than any other
public activity e- t war, and since
the work of trie takot Is is so vital to
local and'ijational life some of the data
I contained in this report should be of
lively interest to the people.
For all purposes from all sources the
county school system during the last
year raised $2(19,598.84. Of this
amount $23:1,671.73 has been spent
builded into intelligence and character
in young life, we believe. There is
yet on hand $35,927.11, most of which
is in the treasury of one district to be
used to pay for a new building now
being constructed. Our registration
for the year was 2,172 pupils. The av
erage expense per pupil was $107.59.
For" salaries $82,19.74 was paid to 77
teachers. An average of $1,009.49 was
paid each teacher. For new building
and sites $80,576.32 was expended. For
all other purposes $70,975.67 was paid.
Our total indebtedness, bonds and
warrants, Il $261,311.5.4 The estimat
ed value of all buildings and sites as
appraised by school boards is $369,412.
Approximately one third of our school
properties is paid for. We still owe
the holders of our obligations for about
two-thirds of our school plants.
May we offer a few opinions and
suggestions, if you please.
The closest care should be exercised
in the selection of teachers. The mar-
I gin of difference between a good teach
er and a weak teacher is slight. Ihe
cheap teacher is often the mbre ex
pensive in supplies waited and build
ing and equipment damaged.
All bonds and other obligations should
begin to fall due within five years af
ter the date of issue. Too much is be
ing paid in interest. Our school sys
tem is becoming weighted with too
many long time obligations.
Our overhead expense would appear
to be too heavy. Teachers should be
urged to keep down running expenses
by economy in the use of power, sup
plies, and repairs.
Our school at tendance is not perfect ;
but it does approximate perfection.
Few children are out of school who
should be under instruction. School
clerks are doing mu;h work for little
pay. Members of school boards are
doing a fine faithful work gratuitously.

Editor Glacier : To go a little further
in the tax matter and the salmon can
ners : It is no secret that the canners
have at times paid for fi.-h that later
they threw back into theriver when
they could not secure the price that
suited them. Perhaps if the canners
paid a tax on the fish they would be
willing to sell Hah a little cheaper at
times when the demand was lower
than the supply instead of trying to
hold up the price by the dumping pro
cess. I am not sure.
The state legislature passed a law at
the last session empowering a commit
tee to ascertain what further taxable
resources the state possessed. This
committee is now making its investiga
tion. The real answer to the problem
is that the state like the individual
must do with less money, to which the
state replies that the people demand
the things that the state is compelled
to furnish money to carry out. There
fore the matter comes back to the in
dividual. It is the voters who have
carried most of the measures that in
creased the taxes. Therefore it will
be the voters who will refuse to pass
more measures to provide more money
for the state to spend. The fact re
mains, however, that the measures
would not have been on the ballot in a
great majortiy of case3 if the legisla
ture had not referred them. Perhaps
it would be a good idea to initiate a
measure to keep the legislature out of
session for a longer period than two
years. The time to initiate such a
measure is now, however. We must
not let the legislature get into session
again until we wish taxes raised.
The last legislature passed an act
requiring all milling companies putting
up any mixtures sold under brand
names to have the mixtures analyzed
by the state at $9 per analysis. Then
the miller has to file a statement with
the state setting forth the results of
this analysis and swearing that it is
true at $10 per swear. Each year he
reswears and repej t. Then in order to
give some business to the printers who
are asking for a 41 hour week, the
state requires a label on each package
stating what the contents are. This
isn't so expensive, but it costs money.
Who pays for it, the millers'.' One is
reminded of the words of the preacher.
