Has been established beyond all question. Many other cars have
come into competition with the FordThe high cost of operation,

A WONDERFUL RECORD
There has not been a Ford oiuour Sales Floor for over" one year
Nevertheless they have proven theiis ever-increasing popularity. Wise
buyers are willing to wait their time.

The Life Of Your Car
Depends Largely On
It has limn l'en rocognbcd that ma
chinery of every kind must be lubrl-j
fated with oil of a particular consist-1
eney if it is to run smoothly. i
The same is true of automobile en
gines. Unless an oil meets exactly the
needs of the engine in which it is used,
worn parts are likely to be tlio result.
And worn parts mean the evor piescut
danger of a break. It is certainly cheap
er in the end to buy good lubricating
pi of the correct consistency than to
puy new parts. j
. To specify the correct grade of oil for
every ty: e of e ginc is tho woik uf ex
ports. Ronliaing this, the Standard Oil
company established a board of lubri
cation engineers that has determined by
exhaustive study and actual tests the
correct consistency of Zerolene for ev
ery make of automobile.
Tlio results of the experiments and
teat of the board of lubrication engi
neers have been embodied In a series of
correct lubricution charts and a separate
chart has been prepared for each make
of car. The wise motorist will do well
to follow theso charts implicitly if he
would get the most out of his ear.
When Water Pump Fails
In case your water pump fails on
the road, do not despair. Ktep the ra
diator filled clear to tho top, run on
high gear as much as possible, keep
spark well advanced, shut off ignition
going downhills and change the water
occasionally if it shows signs of overheating.
The Q QUgQYOUS
How New Methods Fortify This Tire Against It
Bruises mean broken inner fabric, and broken
fabric mean blowouts the ruination of more tires
than all other causes combined.
Frequently bruises result fro;n underinflation,
but too often they are due to faulty construction and
to the shortcomings of ordinary rubber and fabric.
Two Years of Drastic Road Tests Have Proved The
THERMOID CROLIDE COMPOUND CASING to
be remarkably resistant to the stone brui.se. CRO
LIDE makes the tread tougher and the fabric strong
er. And it unites the plies of fabric to one another
and to the tread in one. solid and practically insepar
Naturally you pay a higher price for
this casing than for avreage tires. But
you pay more only at first in the end
. you pay LESS. One THERMOID CRO
LIDE COMPOUND casing will prove
this to you.
We ask you to take no risk, for this tire is sold on
a basis of 6,000 miles of GUARANTEED service (in
Ford sizes, 7,500 miles).

' POWER FACTS CITED
Ford Develops Maximum Of
Power With Engine At
"The average American car, which
weighs 3001) pounds in touring I'orm, has
an engine that deevlops 44.3 brake ItorBe
powor at 2200 revolutions per minute,"
says writer in a recent Issue of Motor
the national magazine of motoring. This
means that the car has one horsepower
available for every 63 pounds of weight
without passengers. Incidentally, it uses
a year ration of 4.35 to 1.
Coming to consideration of the char
acteristics of specific engines, the au
thor finds that "the Ford has an en-
giue which develops its maximum horse
j power at the lowest speed 14U0 revolu
tions per minute. The highest engine
'speed is 2800 revolutions per minute,
' which is claimed to be the peak of the

In figuring out the - average brnko
horsepower, the usual figure i 143 for
the F. R. P. is left out of the reckoning
The lowest power is 20, which is devel
oped by the Ford, and the liig'.iest om

the McKarlnn. The average horsepower
The tabulation showing the ratio of
horsepower to weight discloses some in
teresting facts. The F. K. P. has the
lowest figure of 25 pounds of car eight
per engine horsepower, but casting this
-side as being unusual, the Oakland is
lowest with only 35 pounds per horse
power and the Maibohm highest with
91 pounds per horsepower. The average
for ill cars is 63.4 pound.
Open Cut-Outs Dangerous
To Shell Shock Victims
Chicago, July 19. Authorities in
number "of eentral west cities have taken
steps to prevent motoring with the muf
flers of their motor open. It is declared
that the sudden explosions have the
same effect as bursting shells and ma
chine gun fire on the shattered nerves
of returned soldiers who are suffering
from shell shock.
The authorities say that many shell
shock victims who had virtually re
covered have bad to return to hispitals
as the result of the sudden "pop-pop"
of the motorcycle ent'ine behind them.

be seen at once that we are rapidly com
ing to a period when automobile travel
will be almost universal in this coun
try. Vp until this time all the federal
aid projects which have assisted the
various states in the construction and
maintenance of highways have always
been scattered over a number of di
verse units of roads not connected, in
most cases, with any main system. The
result has beea that while we have
stretches of improved highways in every
state that these have been constructed

transportation, but of caring for local
The expenditure of the government
funds appropriated to the various
states rests entirely in the hands of the
officials of the states and naturally
they are more intorested in the needs
of their respective states than in any
national necessity. Of course improv
ed roads, no matter where constructed
are of value but if all the appropria.
tions were expended with no regard to
the pressing need for a national thor
oughfare, it would be a fatal mistake.
"Furthermore, no state department
is equipped to care for this need. A na
tional highway system, such as that pro
vided in the Towiisend Bill, is serious
ly needed and not until such a plan is
in operation under a Federal Highway
commission will our road prvTJlem be

A striking example of the amount of
money which motorists contribute to the
construction and maintenance of good
ronds is shown in a recent report of tho
Massachusetts highway commission,
showing tho amount of money which
that state rcnlizes from its auto taxes.
The receipts from motorists have
reached t,522,78fl.96. For tho sumc per
iod lust year it was f 1,190,02.55, as in
crease of $331,817.11 or 29 per cent. The

113,000 plates for cars so far this year.

192.000, and the Uital in 1917 was 12H,

Proper Way Of Mounting
Straight Side Tires Told
The proper method of mounting the
straight side tires is to lay the rim of
the tire in its proper position. Tho bead
for ten inches on both sides of the valve
and after starting the tire in this way
it should be forced in place further by
stumpng on it, first on one side and then
on the other. Htiimping in this way will
let operator sent the tire ensi'iv, though
it is sometimes necessary to resort to a
tire tool. The ends of the rim may be
brought into place by means of a screw
driver to use in prying, and rare should
be used not to make a mistake and get
the wrong end of the rim on top. This
method is for use when a rim expanding
and contracting tool is not available, as
this latter saves much time and trouble
and should be in every toolbox.

What Does Testing Mean?
"Testing" means to find out the condition of your
storage battery. It means MORE than just. stick
ing a hydrometer in your battery it means to find
out if the acid is weak or strong if the battery is
charged or run down and if there is plenty of so
lution in the battery. It also means the car owner
will be advised how to keep his battery in the best
of condition. If you want to know more about your
