Crnnklng a Ford englno on a cold
morning is sometimes difficult, as
most Ford owners know. One of the
main reasons for this Is that thu oil
flowing in between the clutch plntes
has stiffened by the cold and it tends
to prevent tho oraukbhaft from turn
To overcome this, drop the emer-
goucy lever forward when putting
tho car up for tho night and pulling
It back Just before cranking to start
tho engine. In dropping tho lover
forward tho clutch plates squeeze to -
gothor, forcing tho oil out from be -
tweeu tho disks so that when tho
olittrh is ngiilii released just before
binning tho motor thoro Is no fric
tion caused by tho oil. Popular

ME FOR IB
Bitter Against Raise by P. T.
and T. Company ;t
PROTEST IS MADE
Committee 1 Appointed to Disraas
With Cltr Council the Feasibility
of launching Municipal System la
ThU City Cordial Feeling for Cor
poration Has Been Turned.
The attendance at the meeting of
the Business Men's Association last
' night was the largest In Its history.
' The members were there for the pur-
man who discussed the question. It
was recognized as a deliberate aac
unwarranted steal, and it it bad not
:'been for the fact that a binding
agreement could not be made that
would Include all business houses.
since there are some firms In the
city that do not belong to the assocl-
atlon, every phone would be ordered
' disconnected and Klamath Fall
would do business without the assis
tance of the Pacific Telephone and
Telegraph company and until srichT
tinja g the. cUx, could JueiaJl its own
system. As It was, the members de-
elded to tender to the company the
rate authorized by its franchise.
Some will refuse to pay more and.
permit their phones to be remored
'while others, such as the groceries.
meat markets and drug stores, will
continue to pay under protest until
such time as other relief is provided.
The following motion was unanl-
"That the Business Men's Associa
tion of the City of Klamath Falla
earnestly protests against thepropos-
ed Increase In the charge for busl-
ness telephones, made in violation ot
the franchise granted to the Pacific
.Telephone and Telegraph company by
the city of Kuamath Falls, because w
' believe the increase unnecessary an
unjust; that If the Pacific Telephona
j and Telegraph company persists la
the collection of this unfair charge.
(.we urge upon the city council to take
! steps towards the Immediate con-
j struction of a municipal system: and
1 that the president appoint a commit-
tee to act with the secretary of this
association, to take an immediate ap
peal to the Public Service Commis
sion to rescind this increase. Insofar
as it applies to Klamath Falls."
As indicating the extreme, hostllitr
ot those present, there was not ona
word raised against this motion nor
one vote cast against Its adoption,
notwithstanding the fact that It car
ries with it a recommendation for a
municipal telephone system. In no
city ot tho stato was there a more
1 cordial feeling existing between the
I uusiness men uim 100 it-ieiiiiuno i.nw
jpany than here In Klamath Falls, but
this no longer exists, and no matter
been em-'what the outcome. It will be years
j before the company will regain the
.good will of tho people of this city.
