Speed in recovering the motor is essential. You may have to enlist your skin-diver friends, but get it up as quickly as possible. Wash the motor with clean, fresh water. •'• Get as. i|iud» water out of the powerhead as you <an. If you remove the spark plugs andop- • erate the starter with thespar- k-pliiR holes openingdownward, you'll get most of thewaterout. If the motor does not turn over freely when you operate the starter, don't force It. This may indicate internal damage, such as a bent connecting rod or broken piston, whichmight have resulted from waterbeingtrapped between the piston and the cylinder head while the enginewas still rotating. Pour alcohol or quicksilver engine cleaner in thecylinders; then lubricate all internal parts you can reach with engine oil. Do this by injecting oil into the spark plug holes, .replacing the plugs, andoperatingthestarter. Next, and most important, take the motor to an authorized repairman as soon as possible Complete disassembly and reassembly by a qualified outbo- _;d motor mechanic is recommended. If yoti're in a remote area and can't get to a serviceman immediately, these additional steps will minimize rustandcorrosion: Clean all exterior surfaces and apply a thin film of engine oil. Lubricate'control linkage, swivel bracket, and all worVinpc parts. 18 TO5K CAB PERFORMING ATLAS /'lotor Analyt with DYNA-V1SION Amaitot new machine tell* W» exactly what the trouble ss with your »nto'i eofine. . TUBEE FACTOEY xkAINED MECHANICS ON DDTX AT HUMBLE SEBVICE 4tb * Hickory Frecport Is New House For You Or The Brazosport and Bragoria County, x'exag, Thurg., August 9t, 1958 By EDWARD , United Press hternatioflal WASHINGTON (UPI) - It the lew house-for you or for the For the-whole family, you say; According to the Journal of H- omebuildirig, published by the National Aim. of Hume Builders, that whole family idea 1* true a* far a* It goes. But... An article in the August issue of the Journal, which is devoted to tales promotion, tells home builder*: "Selithechtld- ren." Its author, Mrs. Dale F.Witt of Virginia Beach, Vs., •member of the Home Beiidtrs Merchandising Committee, finds "the power of the women in this country hat long been recognized as an established fact, but the power of children overbuying has not been so recognized. "THEY are the reason mom and dad need a new! home." Mrs. Witt's theory is this: "When the young couple first married, the two-room apartment was delightful, cozy and snug; but, stiddenly. the four walls have closed to on them with the addition of junior" and all his special furniture, diapers, bottles and wails. • "This is where Junior's influence begins and continues," Mrs. Witt finds. ; ' It grows as he does. For example, he influences location. The new home, according to Mrs. Witt, "must be in an area that has plenty of fresh air, a place to play, good environment, near schools, shopping, congenial children next door." all "for the children." Meeting these location requirements may mean father has a 30 -minute drive toworkbrmo- re lawn than he cares to mow"but he'll put up with it-for the children." Mrs. Witt maintains the youngsters also have * lot to say- if not in so many words-about price. "The house must be in a neighborhood junior can 'be prouc of, but the payments must leave room for junior's education, savings in case^ of sickness or braces on teeth, life insurance, money for camps, music lessons." '..•;.. Since the^Wds "sean to control all,of dad'spursestrings " Mrs. .Wiitadvises builders. "Let's, titf-Mm'-ap la them and let he children help us sell the amlly, - • - •' ; \ \ "Make the children welcome in your model home- no Separate playyard*! If the children get your wall* in the model home dirty, or break * limp, put it on the advertising, cost ledger sheet." Sales pitch-wi«e, Mrs. Witt suggests learn the children's names and use them. For example: ' "This community is an ideal place for-Johnny to live. In this- neighborhood he will have a happy life and grow up'tp be a useful citizen because it has good »chools, playgrounds, etc.". . . "Notice the large window in the kitchen whereyou can watchjohnnyplay".. ."The gmge^has plenty of room for bikes, baby carriage, stroller " Even before you have any specific prospects, Mrs, Witt recommends, direct promotion to the younger set. "Attract the6- nildren to openings and you'll get the mothers and dads. Indians, ^clowns, balloou, masks, will do a better Job In selling them than beautiful girls as hostesses." ece!vln» In* *NEW YORK'(ten *—a m Dickey caught iOO or morfc Ames for the New York Yankees for 13 consecutive seasons.
