' extra wide breaker strip is used, which
't acts at a buffer in distributing blows
r and road shocks over a greater area.
An extra layer of fabric is used in
. the construction of the Portage tire,
Which gives it an average breaking
strength of 425 pounds.

Big Eastern Truck Company
Insures All Its Employes
"The Stewart Motor corporation of
1 Buffalo, N. Y., makers of the Stewart
motor trucks, asserts J. M. Opper of
the Jones-Opper company, are great
.believers in employe welfare work.
. One example of the treatment ac
corded to Stewart employes is the
- method of insuring every employe in
the organization, in addition to com
plying with the compulsory New
York compensation law.
- "When an employe begins work
he is handed a life insurance policy
' for $1,000, made payable to whomever
-the employe names as beneficiary.
After' being in the company' employ
ior a period of over one year the
policy is automatically increased to
.$1,500.. Should the employe become
totally disabled through accident,
either is the line of duty or else-
'where, or become incapacitated for
work on account of an incurable dis
ease, the amount of the policy is paid
jto the holder in monthly install
ments. "This is just one of the many ways
in which the Stewart Motor corpora-;
tion keeps its employes contented'
and which accounts for the high
.standard of Stewart quality which is
maintained in the Stewart organiea-tion."
: For the first time since' they were
perfected Fordson tractors will .A be
available for use in Nebraska. Five
hundred of these iron horses will be
sold in this state to farmers who will
agree to keep them in tbnstant use
on their farms, or at a reasonable
rental on the farm of a neighbor.
These tractors will be sold at ab
solute cost No one will be per
mitted to make a profit on them.
Clyde L. Herring has arranged with
Henry Ford & Sdn for this distribu
tion and the machines will be shipped
in limited numbers in every county
m tne state to help increase food pro
Nebraska is the fourth state to be
favored in this manner. Previously
almost the entire output of these trac
tors ' has been shipped to England
to accellerate and enlarge grain pro
The Fordson tractor will plow
eight acres in 10 hours and burns
three gallons of kerosene to the acre.
It will pull a double gang plow and
two regulation harvesters, one be
hind the other.
The brake inspection movement
has spread throughout the country
like wildfire. Motor clubs and auto
dealers .associations nave taken up
the matter of warning motorists of
the danger of poor brakes. During
brake inspection week, the lining is
looked at to see if it is worn, and
if so, it is relined, as half of the
automobile accidents are found to
have resulted from brakes failing to
hold when needed.
W. S. Killy, King distributor, states
that the same care which is lavished
on the more delicate parts of the auto
mobile should be applied to brakes.
"They should be set so that the
wheels will hold to the ground with-,
out skidding. Both foot and
emergency, brakes should be so ad
justed that they give an even force
when applied. Also particular pains
should be taken to .prevent setting
them too tight or they will burn and
ruin the lining.
"Another thing every automobile
owner should learn is how to stop a
skid. When he feels the back of his
car skidding, if he will turn the steer
ing wheel immediately in the direc
tion of the skid, he will find that it
will cause the car to rotate in the
opposite direction. With a little prac
tice this swing of the steering wheel
will become almost automatic when
the car begins to skid.
"It is ,auch knowledge of a car's
tendencies under all road conditions
that will enable the .owner to so
handle his car that he can maintain
a good average speed without having
to continually throw on hit brakes and
slow up his engine.

When warning of an air raid is re
ceived ' in, the city explosive sky
rockets are fired from various points.
The automobiles then drive through
'the city streets, honking their horns
to attract attention. On each side of
the car, above the motor hood, a large
sign is carried, on which is printed
the warning, "Take Cover."
When the danger is passed the re
verse side of the sign is shown, which
reads, "All Clear." A Boy Scout

Huns have departed.
The drivers of the cars wear a uni
form which include a metal helmet
similar to that worn by the soldiera
in the (trenches. This latter is worn
for protection against shrapnel from
the British anti-aircraft guns, which
usually provide the raiders with more
or less special entertainment.

A simple and effective way of con

a snugly fitting and nil the inter-

When the cells rattle so that mo

are quickly run down.
