The well-being of S per cent of a motorist's tire investment depends upon 14 por cent the relation of casing to tube costs. A great part of tire trouble is the direct result of under-intlntion. with the inner tube the offender. Yet the average car owner neither knows the name of his tubes nor the length of their service. Cheap and unbranded tubes handicap any casing. The best is at the mercy of a poor tube. The difference in tubes is tremendous. A standard make inner tube is built of almost pure rubber and has a strength of between one and one and one-half tons per cros section Inch. This means that if the tube stock were I , . . : 1 . cum to a square test piece one inch thick and one inch wide, it would be strong enough to lift front l.tXK) to o.t) pounds. Inferior tubes do not have this strength and are highly compounded. Life Usually Long as Casing. On an average it Is possible to build life into an inner tube only equal to that of the casing. It is false economy to use an old tube in a new casing. Inferior and womout tubes should be quickly discarded. The tube which has delivered full service during the "life of one tire is almost certain to have developed slow leaks. When a tube fails to hold air it is worthless. As a general average in all services it has been found that pressure in a tire properly taken care of and when a Sd tube is used will deci-ease about five pounds in two weeks. When this ratio is greatly exceeded, the tube should be examined without delay before the life of the lire is s:pped. Valve Cap Should Be Tight. It is well to remember that the cap on the end of the valve stem helps to make the tube hold air. Often when the valve inside is leaking, pressure may be retained without a rapid decrease by screwing the cap on tightly. Its function is to assist tho valve, and Its use is imperative. The washer is likewise furnished for a purpose and should be used. It holds the valve stem In proper position also that it cannot pull loose nor v the tube h pinched, and keeps out water. With a standard-make tire, use a standard-make tube. 'Ttargaln" tubes mean tire trouble and ruin the profit and pleasure of motoring. MEW cMfe?

PRAISES RURAL COMMUNITIES Declares They Are the Guaranty of the Perpetuity of the Republic Urges " "Gospel of Uno'erstanding Upon the Country. Washington. Oct. 17 Confidence that the United Slates will be able in the reconstruction poriHl to Imbue the other nations of the earth with a spirit of service and understanding was expressed by President Harding In an address before several thousand postmasters and postal employees who have been in convention here. Without referring directly to the wining armament conference, the President declared his conviction that the "'gospel of understanding" would be responsible for whatever of lasting good may be accomplished in the years of rehabilitation and realignment ahead. "Whatever I may have learned to night," the President said. "I knew about postmasters long before I came to the presidency. I used to help pick them in the good old days, and I'm not sure but I named more of them twenty years ago than I do today. "When I was shaking hands with yon yesterday at the White House somehow- the thought came to me of the varied communities you represented. I suppose I'm just a little partial to the groat rural community, because I began my life there. I'm just as proud of the great cities of America as any citizen of ti e republic, but they're just a little different. They show a little more of the passing passion, while out across the groat areas of our republic are the sober, substantial citizens who are the guaranty of the perpetuity of this land. "I take it we art1 not all of one party hero, and I want to say that I'm not averse to postmasters being inter- ! ested in politics. If anyone ever comes to me and says ho is seeking a postmastership and has no party affiliations he's coins to be w-iped off the slate right away. I'd rather have a hard-boiled Democrat than a yellow Republican. "And wheu a man wines to me to i I'Mir ;mw ;inks m 11:11 it;o 00111- pensution is. In also is wipe! otT the merely seeking a place, but the man is worth while who is seeking an opportunity for service, particularly in this present period of change and reconstruction. "I do not speak in a partisan sense or in a sense of criticism of anything that has gone before, but it's no small problem to put our republic on Its feet again and it calls for the service of every man and woman interested in his country. T have sought to preach the gospel of understanding and service, and I venture to say that the greatest things we shall record in the years of reconstruction w ill be due to understanding and service. If we can have that spirit and do these things for our own people it Is not impossible that this republic can point the world to a way to better understanding and to a better order for mankind."

Keep Them Properly Aligned by This Simple Method. distance fr:n the floor. Measure from this string to the front and rear parts of the right front and rear tires. If the distances are not equal, shift the boxes or the steering wheel until they are exactly so. The string will then be exactly parallel to the line of the wheels on that side. Then, with a second pair of boxes and a string, do the same thing on the left side, thereby obtaining another line. When this is accomplished, measure across from one line to the other, making sure that these two are equal distances from the wheels. Do the same at the rear. If these two measurements agree exactly, the wheels are in alignment. Popular Science Monthly. TO AVOID MAGNETO TROUBLE Remove Distributor Cover Once a Month and Wipe Out Also Clean Breaker Points. While the magneto only needs two drops of oil In each bearing every thousand miles it Is well to remove the distributor cover once a month and wipe out with a cloth dipped in gasoline. At the same time pass a piece of double-ought sand-paper between the breaker points to remove any corrosion that may be forming. This will put off magneto troubles almost indefinitely. . - Phiiander Chase Kn.x.
