Name Committees in Hospital Drive (Continued from Page 1) committee ifor each city ward, village and township. Ward committees for a house- to-house canvass in Ludington, Scottville and in each village and township are now virtually completed, the objective being to see every home in the county. When the drive is over," said Frederic Read, ways and means chairman, "we want to be able to say that we reached as many families as possible, and received their response. Our job is to try to put on a far-reaching drive, so that, when it is ended, we can truthfully say the better and is stronger at the high engine temperatures. But in all high-power engines, now and then, the oil film on which the parts run breaks for a moment. In that moment the bearing may iget so hot it burns and the stage is set for a bad break. The Battelle Memorial Institute here discovered that iif five percent of lead is added to the silver, making an alloy of silver and lead, the bearing does not burn. Either the lead acts as a grease during the momentary loss of oil, or else the lead alloy holds the oil better, so that it never quite "rubs off." The discovery was reported by R. W. Dayton to the American Society of Mining and Metallurgical Engineers'.
