To enable you to make a safe stop in an emergency, your brakes must be properly equalized — particularly if they are of the four •wheel type. If you have excessive braking pressure on one side of the car, a quick application of the brakes is apt to cause your car to swerve and get out of control — which might easily result in a bad accident. Relative braking power instantly shoivn on the new Weaver Automatic Brake Tester Make this test yourself. Simply drive your car on the Tester — it lies flat on the floor— and apply your foot brakes. The relative braking power on each of the four wheels is immediately shown by the rise of colored liquid in the four gauges in the head of the pedestal, positioned to correspond to the wheels of your car. At once you see whether your brakes need adjustment. This test is scientifically accurate — it takes no more time than stopping your car — and it is FREE.

Renwlck Times: Some of these days a new order of things is coming to pass in this country, and every legislature in the land will be busy rewriting laws into language the general public can understand. Just who first conceived the idea of writing laws in such a way that nobody but a lawyer could interpret them no one seems to know. But he certainly did a lot to tangle up humanity when he did it. We'll venture to say there are dozens of men right around here who would never have been in court or mixed up in lawsuits if the laws had been written in the first place so they could thoroughly understand them. What's the use in having to pay out a lot of money anyhow for some fellow to tell you what you could read and understand yourself if it was written in modern English, such as that employed in the making of books, newspapers and ordinary letters? We still cling to a lot of old moss-grown ideas in this country, and one of them is that a law has to be written in a peculiar language and twisted English. Maybe some day a movement to rewrite them into plain and understandable words will be started and that movement will have the endorsement of the general public in every state in the union.
