Washington, Oct. 12. With the al

German troops combined today to
boost the liberty loan ia New York.
They halpod by engaging in a great
parade down Fifth avenue the avenue
of .the allies with the president march
ing in, the"niiddle of. the parade.
. Following President Wilson were
American soldiers. Scattered liberally
through "the rond were thesolieis of
other "nations and none drew greater
share 'of "applause than the other.. The
president was the recipient ,.l .-oiiwn '
uous outbursts of cheering. Through1
the long line were scattered parts of
German airplanes, the wreck of a Zep
neliu which will never again engage in
the killing expeditious for it whs shot
down by the French; smashed German
howitzers, French whippet tanks,
heavy cannon taken from the Hun
hordes on the battlefields of France
bv American soldiers aud other imple
ments of war. They were dragged on
trucks, snaked along behind trucks, or
pulled by tractors riding on their own
wheels. They drew varied expressions
from the crowd.
The president had been expected to
sit in the reviewing stand at Fifth
avenue and 23rd street Madison
Square but he passed on by this point
and continued down the avenue to
Washington arch, where it ended. In
the stand were Governor Whitman and
other ptoiuinent officials.
.Tho crowd "was given some excite
ment as the parade passed fifty First
street. H. J. Boone, aged 55, a printer,
rushed from the east side of Fifth
avenue toward the president and was
snatched back by John Lyon, a police
man. The crowd started a demonstra
tion and attempted to get Lyon's pris
oner, but he beat them off.
Boone later said he was an English
man, naturalized in this country and
merely wanted to shake hands with
he president. He was not armed.
A citizen later picked up a loaded
rovolver of .38 caliber, near where the
scuttle with Boone occurred, it was of
the regulation pattern carried by New
lork policemen and was in a Holster.
It was believed tho weapon may have
been dropped by a policeman or e de
tective. Boone disclaimed ownership
of the rovolvor.
Boone was held by the polic? lor ex
amination without any specilic charge
being placed against him.

Will The Air-Cooler "Come Back"?
Maximum Prices Fixed
On Fir Timber Products
Washington, Oct. 12. Maximum
prices on fir timber will be enforced
from Octo cr 25, 1918, midnight, until
January 15, 1919. This was agreed upon
by westcoast lumber manufacturers and
loggers and the price fixing committee
of the war industries board today.

CHE QUESTION IS OFTEN ASKED whether there Is any likelihood
of air cooling again coming Into widespread favor for automobile
engines. Only the future can give an answer to this query, but it may
be remarked that since the time, now fifteen years or so ago, when
air cooling was In prominence, the conditions have changed In soma
respects not to the disadvantage of this meihod. When air cooling fell
Into disfavor, the engine almost universally In use was a four cylinder of
slow speed and rather poor efficiency. In order to produce the power
demanded, cylinder bores of four to five Inches were required. Such large
bore cylinders were and still are very difficult properly to air cool. Thanks
to enlarged valve areas, and lighter moving parts In engines and to weight
reduction and lower gear ration In cars, the cylinder bores of modern four
cylinder engines are almost always of less than four Inches, seldom of
more than three and one-half Inches In sixes and of three Inches or less In
eights and twelves. Cylinders of these relatively small sizes are very
readily cooled. The breakage and pitting of valves was another failing of
the old time air coolers, but so much better valve materials are now avail
able as to render trouble from this cause unlikely. One cause of faulty
performance of the early air cooled engines was the lack of skill of their
operators In controlling spark position and throttle opening, but motorists
are now much more skillful. Present-day fuel is go Involatile as to require
a high engine temperature for Its effective vaporization. Indeed It Is by
no means certain that the highest temperature attainable In a water cooled
motor Is high enough to give the best vaporization with the fuels we may
soon be compelled to use. With the air cooled engine, working temperatures
as high as compatible with perfect lubrication and full weight charges are
readily obtainable. The high fuel efficiency of the air cooler ia attributed
to its high cylinder wall temperature. In starting a water cooled engine
from a cold condition the temperature not only of the engine Itself but of a
large body of water ffns to be elevated to the normal working point while
with the air cooler, only the cylinders and their attachments have to be so
heated, thus expediting the attainment of efficient working condition.
FUNCTION OF THK BliKATIIER.
S. A. McC. asks: What Is the ob
ject o( the so-called '"breathers," that
are attached 'to engine crank-cases?
Answer: The breather Is simply
a vent from the crank-case to the
open air, which prevents the air
pressure therein from ever rising
much above that of the outside air.
It Is extended vertically and provid
ed inside with tullla plates, so that
oil cannot spatter out of it and so
that it can conveniently be used as
an oil filling tube. . In some types
of engines, the space in the eranlc
case, beneath the pistons, varies con
siderably at different part ot the
stroke and the crank-case pressure
varies accordingly and there also Is
some pressure created by the "blow
by" of the charge down post the
pistons. Too much crunk-case pres
sure means useless work of the pis
tons on the down stroke and lose of
oil around the pistons, shaft bearings
and valve push rods, and this the
breather prevents. However, breath-.
ers aro not universally used nd a
slight crank-case pressure U some-'
times made use of to force a little
oil up around the valve push rode
for their lubrication.

3. LcB. asks; What Is the caus
of my brakes acting too suddenly T
Also, at times they seem to catch
and then let go, chattering badly.
Is there anything I can do to make
them take hold more gradually and
. Answer: Quite possibly your
brake linings have become too hard
and dry. You might try applying a
small amount of oil and graphite to
the linings or perhaps hotter, to the
drums. Only a little should be used.
