MOTOR NOTES TRANSMISSION UPKEEP IMPROVEMENT IN DRIVING AND ROUTINE MAINTENANCE URGED. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 10 September 1925

MOTOR NOTES d TRANSMISSION UPKEEP -. IMPROVEMENT IN DRIVING AND b ROUTINE MAINTENANCE v URGED. It matters not how sweetly tuned z the engine of the car may be, the vehicle will not run smoothly and pleasantly unless the transmission v too is kept in good order. By the word "transmission" we imply not only the gear box, but alto the clutch, universal joints, propellor I shaft and differential gears. Each of these parts has a very important 1 work to perform and is subjected to heavy and at times, Improperly se vere strains and stresses. Although 1 the transmission of necessity has heavy duty to perform, the owner should bear in mind that on his good driving and careful management de pend to a great extent the life of these parts and their freedom from breakdown. Before touching on the mechani cal side of the problem let us first of all traverse quickly those faults of driving which are peculiarly destru tive to one unit or other of the transmission.

FOOTBALL THE MASSEY CUP. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 10 September 1925

FOOThALL THE MANUEY CLI'. Yeeleday afternoon a vqry fair at tendance of the public was present at the local Park to witness the football matches that were set down to be played. viz., Yass Juniors v. Wara. tabs (or the Nash Cup, and Yabs Seniors v. Warrigals for the Massey Cup. The first-named match did not take place, owing to several of the Yass Juniors not arriving in time. Their delay was caused by a mishap to their motor car when only about 15 miles out from Yass. The 'Tabs were on the ground at the specified time with a good team, and had the Yass lads been able to, field their full number of players in good time no doubt a splendid game would have resulted, as a representative of this paper was informed that had the visiting juniors arrived up to time their team would have proved to be one of the best second grade teams that had represented Yass for a long time past. To give the visitors a "kick" the Waratab's popular cap. rain, Allan Byrne, suggested halving the number of pl...

Imperial Press Party VISIT TO CANBERRA. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 10 September 1925

Imperial Press Party VISIT TO CANBERRA. About fifty members of the lin perial Press Delegation visited Can- j berra on Monday, and viewed Aus tralia's new capital under most fav orable conditions. The party was accompanied by Major Marr, hon. Minister, who re presented the Federal Government, and Senator Cox. The State Govern- i ment was represented by Mr. George V Cann (Minister for Health and Local T Government). 11 On their arrival, the visitors were 1 welcomed by the members of the g Federal Capital Commission, Mr. J.H. t Butters, Sir John Harrison, and Mr. C. H. Gorman, whose guests they were for the day. A fleet of motor cars took the party a first to the temporary Parliament House. The building was favorably P commented on. Several of the visi- v tors failed to see the necessity of fl building an altogether new capital. c Many questions were asked as to the V reasons of this, and these appeared to be quite unconvincing to some of the inquirers. The magnificent view of the val...

Opening of the Contest Season SPORTING SIDE OF MOTORING GAINING IN POPULARITY. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 17 September 1925

.pening of the Contest Season SPORTING SIDE OF MOTORING GAINING IN POPULARITY. The contest enthusiasts are bestir fing themselves now that the warm weather is returning and this sum-' mer should witness not a few well supported and strenuous tests in various parts of the Commonwealth. At present sporting motorists in the Eastern States are concerned with the Eight Days Reliability Trial of the R.A.C.A., which started from Sydney yesterday. The itinerary as we have noted , is an interesting one with Koscuisko as the objective; the return to Sydney via Narooma and the coastal road providing a wonder ful variety of scenery. During this test which will exceed 850 miles in length, there will be two timed Hill Climbs, a speed test, flexibility test. and fuel consumption competition. Speaking generally the conditions governing the entrants are similar to those which have been adopted in the past, but this-year no penalty will be imposed on account of spring breakages. This decision has cau...

MOTOR NOTES SPRING SUSPENSION FOR AUSTRALIAN CONDITIONS [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 17 September 1925

MOTOR NOTES SPRING SUSPENSION FOR AUSTRALIA. CONDITIONS There are few aspects of motoring which are more forcibly, and at times painfully, brought home to the owner driver than that of spring suspension. It is only by making a fairly close study of the question that he can hope in some measure to off set the drawback of bad roads by having a car which will travel over ruts and gutters comfortably when driven at sane speeds. Up to a point the manufacturer of the car has grappled with the prob lem, and presumably laid hinmself out to design a type and size of spring suitable to the model which 3 he is producing. Perhaps it may be due to the fact that most car fac tories are situated in countries bless ed withl good roads; but be that as it may there is no gainsaying that many models used in Australia are not 3 "sprung" in a manner to suit over sea conditions. It is gratifying to observe that to-day many models are fitted with shock absorbers as items of standard equipment and no I dou...

FOOTBALL [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 17 September 1925

.FOOTBALL Yesterday afternoon the Yass Jun ior Football Club sent a team to Queanbeyan to try and take the Nash Cup from the \Varatahs who .have held the trophy since the 1924 season. Both Clubs fielded a fairly good team, but the game had to be played under adverse conditions, for the weather was almost indescribable. A strong westerly wind, accompanied with scuds of rain, hail and extreme cold, prevailed throughout the afternoon and, in consequence, the attendance of keep supporters of the " king of winter sports" was very small compared with that at many previous matches played in the Park. The Yass Juniors were represented by the following:-Fullback, O'Con nor; three-quarters, Grieves, Fields, York (captain) Vallance; five-eighth, McCormack; half, James; forwards, B. Smith, Cole, Mead, Raynor, Knox, M. Smith.

COMMONWEALTH CONVERSION LOAN [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 17 September 1925

COMMONWEALTH CONVERIMION LJOAN His Excellency Sir Dudley de Chair, Governor of New South Wales, has made the following statement: ''To the holders of the maturing Commonwealth Stock and Bonds, issued when Australia was laced with heavy costs of her share in the war, I would urge that it is to-day just as great a duty to our country to convert their holdings into the new Loan now being floated by the Commonwealth Government. And to investors gener. ally. I would point out that by taking up stock or 'bonds in the new Loan, they are at the one time assisting in the financial needs of Australia and investing their funds in a safe and profitable way, It should be a privi. lege as well as a duty for every citizen who can do so to take his part in bearing the burden imposed on the Commonwealth by the warl."

OLD GLOVES AND THE GARAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 17 September 1925

OLD GWIVES AND THE GARAGE. The manuel worker becomes accus tomed to minor cuts and bruises which cause him little or no incon venience, but those whose professions require them to use their hands for gentler pursuits find that tinkering with the car leads to abrasions and an ingraining of oil and dirt which it is hard to cure before starting off again on Monday morning. It is a good plan, therefore, to appropriate an old pair of leather gloves for the garage and to wear them when work ing on the car. One drawback is that the leather soon becomes oil sodden and the gloves too slippery to work with, but this may be avoided if a tin of clean sawdust is kept in the garage and the gloves covered in it as soon as they are no longer need ed. Incidentally a supply of sawdust is always useful in throwing down to absorb oil puddles of grease which may have got on to the floor, and which will tend to rot the tyres should they pick up any of it. Speak ing of grease do not forget that if you hav...
