BICYCLES ON ROADS. SUGGESTIONS POR CONTROL. In America, as in Australia, there has been a revival ci bicycle riding. An alarming aspect of the traffic question in all countries Ls tile frequent fatalities where numbers of motor cars and bicycles are using the roads at the same time. In America last, year 800 bicycle riders were killed by motor vehicles and 14,000 were injured. Suggestions have been made on maviy occasions that bicycles and their riders in Ulis State should bs subject to some form of registration and licence.

AERODROME SITE LIVERPOOL SUGGESTED. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool News — 2 September 1937
AERODROME SITE LIVERPOOL SUGGESTED. A suggestion has been put before the Defence Department that land be acquir ed near. Liverpool as an aerodrome site, with a siding station to provide direct rall communication, with the city. I A non-stop train from the city to Liv erpool would take approximately half an hour-less time than the existing tram-bus-walk method of public trans port to Mascot. Land is available, lt is pointed out. at a reasonable figure, much of it suitable for a landing ground with very little ex penditure. The Defence Department is anxious to retain Mascot because of the heavy ex penditure already incurred on the aero drome. But the Public Works Commit tee is anxious to explore all the diffi culties before authorising £51.000 on an administrative building. That the Defence Department has re cently acquired a considerable additional area to allow for extensions to the aero drome suggests that it is determined to persist with Mascot as the commercial airport. If this i...

6000 Tons on the Pistons WHAT GOES ON UNDER THE BONNET. [Newspaper Article] — Liverpool News — 9 September 1937
6000 Tons on the Pistons WHAT GOES ON UNDER THE BONNET. In an average six-cylinder car travel ling at 50 m.p.h., the sum of all pres sures' exerted on the pistons is rather more than 60Q0 tons. Bach piston «tops and starts 5000 times a minute, and' at the point of burning, the temperature generated by combustion In the cylinder-head is higher than the melting- point of Iron.. In that one minute, each piston trav els about 2000ft. The aggregate distance travelled by the pistons in their metal cylinders ls greater than that travellea by the car. Conversion of those 6000 tons pressure on tile pistons to the work of driving the car depends upon the efficiency of thc moving parts. That brings us to the point cf this compilation of facts which apiiears. in an exceptionally interesting and useful booklet issued by the Shell Company, en titled, "The Whys and Wherefores of Car Lubrication &lt;" , The subject, of course, gets flogged pretty consistently in oil company liter ature, but...
