MASON CITY HARDWARE * i f* DON McPEAK OVER ON EAST STATE STREET ^ Why Brakes Don't Last Just a L i t t l e Insight Into Quality of Automobiles. When Mr. Jones stepped on the brake pedal a few weeks ago and discovered that the old bus kept right on floating through space instead of coming to a quick stop, it became evident that something was wrong. He went to his regular garage man and said. "How come? You just tightened these brakes for me last week, now they're slipping again." The garage man examined the brake drums then and informed Mr. Jones that he needed new brake lining. Of course. Mr. Jones had to have the job done but he wanted to find out just why this repair was necessary so soon. Motor 1'erkitig. Mr. Jones pointed out the fact that his motor ivas still perking prettily. That it hadn't had to have any mechanical attention as yet. Why then shouldn't the brakes last as long as the motor'/ Then the mechanic explained that the brake drums were too small for the size and speed of the car. "In other words." he said, "your car is underhraked just as some cars 1 know arc under-tired." "But," said Mr. Jones "don't the factory engineers know better than you or I what size brakes to put on their cars?" Competition Keen. "They know all right" he responded "but competition gets so keen sometimes in a certain price class that a manufacturer sometimes shaves on a specification to permit a lower selling price." Then he explained a number of minor points about the car that were not as heavily and strongly built as on some makes. Mr. Jones always bragged that his car cost him considerably less money than other cars of the same horse power and wheel base. Now he commenced to see things in a new light. It appears that even motor cars are subject to the same rules as other sorts of merchandise. ID politics it used to be one for all. Now it is all for one.--Florida Times-Union.
