Financed from revenue bonds being retired from profits of Seattle's 28-year-old public power and light system this gigantic system will produce, when complete," a total of 1,120,000 horsepower. This is almost equal to Boulder Dam's ultimate capacity of 1,200,000; it is greater than Niagara's American output; nearly twice the power of Muscle Shoals project. Skagit river, some 100 miles north of Seattle, will be harnessed by- three great dams, Gorge, Diablo snd Ruby. The first two are now complete. According to J. D.

But in the .south, where winter is lUerspersed with warm snatches, the best antl-frctzc is glyccilne. The reason is obvious. If a warm spell overlook an alcohol-fillcrl ra- dialer, (lie alcohol evaporate. would quickly advantage. As it gets colder, this aiiti-frecze tends to grow thick and sluggish, therefore retarding the flow of cooling liquid through the radiator, pump and water jacket. Although it would keep the engine block from cracking, due to freezing, glycerine might tend to clog (lie radiator and water pump, and, as a result, produce the opposite effect. The motor would suddenly get very hot before the liquid could thin down enough to be effective. Alcohol, on the other hand, maintains a steady consistency from freezing to boiling, and has even a lower freezing point than glycerine * * * It should be remembered that what is wanted is an engine heated up to the proper operating temperature. That's pretly close to the boiling point of water. An anti-frcezc that is too efficient, that would tend to keep this operating temperature down, is bad for t-he engine. In this cas" cither there is too much anti-frceze in the reeling system or the antifreeze itself is inefficient for the climate. * * * In real cold weather, where it slays consistently cold all winter ! alcohol permits the engine to warm I up to proper operating temperature I much faster than glycerine and it I keeps (he engine at this temperature more evenly. Of course, more alcohol has to bo used-in proporlion to water Four Hours Saves Youth BUFFALO, N. Y.
