H.'Wehtlin, Inventor of the car, pot n tint la an automatic tire which sounds a horn when pfrsj,»rt drops below 85 pounds. By NEA Service : • AKRON, Ohio.—Tile answer to the railroads' prayer for something with which tn combat competition ol bus lines lies, in the bcllci ul J. H,- ; Michclln, famous French tire- nun and inventor, in the pneumatic tired'car he has developed for use on railway rails. -Pot several years motor buses haye cut Into Uie revenue of short- haul branch lines. With his car, Mkhelin believes that railroads can operate cheaper than buses and regain much of the trade they have losl to that, medium of transportation. Michelln has brought his car to the United States and is .putting It into production llvr.ough n Philadelphia, manufacturer and the Goodyear Tire arid Rubber Company. Ten Wheel*—Ten Tlrts .The car on display here is 48 feet long:, can accommodate 24 ceated passengers, and weighs, when empty, about five tons. Ten wheels, all .,«pilpped with the pneumn'tlc tire,.carry, the weight of the car. Four wheels In front, two of them operated by chain and the other tuo by shall, drive directly from the motor. 1 .-•About 85 pounds of pressure are carried in each.tire. An automatic gauge .toots a horn immediatel> wheri one of Uie tires goes below this pressure or is punctured. A special Inner rim, now built of wooJ, but to be constructed of metal later on, Is fitted Inside the tlrc^ In case of a blowout, the car only drops irjut three-eighths of an inch on .o tULi inner rim nnrt no danger results therefrom. A four-cylinder, sleeve valve engine, developing SO twrsepower, will drive this car at a speed of 60 miles an hour over the rails. The engine is of French make, and delivers between 10 and 12 miles on a gallon of gasoline. Car Stops Fast At 58 miles an hour, tire car can be brought to n stop by hydraulic brakes on each wheel In a distance of nboiit 240 feet. The car accelerates about twice as rapidly and decelerates-in about oiie-tcnlh (he distance required for a steam train. In operation, the car Is very ciulet, There is a notarjle absence of the "clfckety-cllck" of steel wheels over tire-rail Joints. The cushion of ni on which the cnr rides serves to absorb much .of the s!w>ck of nn even''rails: There Is no hiss of steam, and no flying cinders. It glides along very much like a boat In smooth water. The llrcs have n lo'ad capacity of 1050 pounds at present and (he cnr weighs 11,000 pounds. At' this ratio, stronger tires will.have to be built before they can be installed on Pullman cars, which Up the scales ns high us 150.000 pounds. 'haf a Premiere HOLLYWOOD.—Goings on about town:.
