MOTORING HOLIDAYS HINTS FOR DRIVERS [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian and Express — 24 January 1929
MOTORING HOLIDAYS HINTS FOB* DRIVERS ' Motorists, who travel many miles on | holiday jaunts are always interested in hints, which may make their holidays more pleasant, and are getting more into the habit of giving their cars a thorough overhaul before starting. Lu brication should receive full attention and the battery should be kept well supplied with distilled water. The radiator should at all times be kept full of clean water, preferably rain water, but cold water should never be put in the radiator when the motor is hot. On Chevrolet cars, for which W. A. Young Motors, Ltd., are district agents, the steering mechanism has been designed to give the greatest ease in handling with the least .amount of wear and consequent adjustment, but though designed to withstand heavy service it must receive attention to ensure fullest efficiency. A car should never be driven at high speed over rough and slippery roads, the slight gain in speed being no compensation for the extra strain on the ...

WHAT IS A WATT ? HOW ELECTRICITY IS MEASURED [Newspaper Article] — Geraldton Guardian and Express — 24 January 1929
? WHAT IS A WATT? HOW EI^CTBICTTY IS MEASURED The language of the electrician is Greek to most people. 'Whilst he talks glibly of volts and amperes and watts, jthey know only that they have to pay ^n electric-light bill for sO many units, and let it go at that ! Though electricity is not a fluid. we can understand most of its terms by comparing it with water flowing through a pipe. If we turn a stream of water on to the paddles of a water-wheel, the work that the wheel will do depends upon two things — the amount of water deliv ered every second and the pressure of the stream. We measure the first ia Lo'tons/and the second in pounds. In the case of electricity, we mea sure the rate at which it Sows in amperes and its pressure in volts. The work which it will do is found by multiplying amperes and volts to gether, which gives the answer in watts, or units of energy. The Board of Trade unit is 1,000 watts, often called a kilowatt, which is the electrical equivalent of one horse-power....
