RED CROSS ACTIVITIES. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 18 February 1926
1ED CROSS ACTIVITIES. Many people do not altogether realise that the activity of the Red Cross Society on behalf of sick and convalescent soldiers is still most marked, but a glance at the records of the Convalescent Room shows that this is decidedly the case. A steady stream of invalid men visit the Convalescent Room when ever it is open, and during the past year no less than 3,855 applicants were interviewed. Of these 267 were sent to Convalescent Homes, and 113 to Sanatoria. In addition to this, assistance of various kinds is extended to invalid soldiers, who are. supplied, when necessary, with: special nourishing food such as eggs, milk, and things of that nature. These are most gratefully and thank fully received by men who are not in receipt of a full pension, and. un able to provide these necessary things for theselves. The Red Cross also supplied T.B. cases in the' Sanatoria with the special surgical glasses sometimes necessary for patinets 'in certain stages of the disease....
HOME COSTING FOR THE PRIVATE OWNER [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 18 February 1926
HOME . COSTING FOR THE PRIVATE&lt; OWNER Although one !.annot 'e ect i the private motorist to enter into intri cate details of running costs and de preciation, such as those employed by business concerns making use of commercial motor transport,. it is none the less a wise thing for him to keep some tally of what his mo toring costs amount to each year. For example it is always well worth while to devote an hour or two to making an accurate test of the petrol mileage which the car is giving and this should be noted down and used as a check on subsequent perform ances. Then, too, the new year should be started off well by taking a note of the speedometer reading, and also keeping a record of petrol used. If a small memorandum book is kept in the side pocket of the car along with a pencil, it is no trouble whatever to note down the quantity of oil or petrol purchased on each occasion and this when compared with the mileage covered, as shown by the speedometer reading, will af...
HINTS ON DRIVING COMMERCIAL VEHICLES. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 18 February 1926
HINTS ON DRIVING COMLMEtRCIAL VEHICLES. There are two main factors which more than any others have disastrous effects on the commercial motor ve hicle. The first is overloading, the second over-speeding. Bring these two in combination and the' quick falling to pieces of the truck or van becomes a natural corollary. Over loading is bad enough in itself and where a truck is asked to carry, more than its clearly prescribed load, then the only safeguard is to reduce the normal speed, for overloading means that not only has the engine more work to do in a given set of circum Stances, butthe springs and all metal parts which have to carry weight and to withstand road shocks are '.reatly overstrained. Vibration must always be considered as a destructive "actor, but we have it in two forms normal and abnormal: vibration. TIowever perfect the mechanism and spring suspension of a conimercial "chicle, it would be foolish to hope that vibration can ever be eliminated entirely. Provided vibratio...
MOTOR NOTES IMPROPER VALVE TIMING. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 18 February 1926
MOTOR NOTES IMPROPER VALVE TIMING. Let it be understood clearly from the very .start that we are not now ,speaking of correct tappet adjust ment, a subject which has already been dealt with here, but rather one referring specifically to the question of valve timing. An improper timing of the valves simply means that the cam either lifts a valve or allows it to close at a moment which is unpropitious either with regard to the intake, compres sion or expa,nsion of the mixture, or the evacuation of the spent gases, on the exhaust stroke. If an inlet valve opens late, then the cylinders do not suck in a full charge, whilst the too early opening of an exhaust valve will also lead to a loss of power since the expanding gases may be permit ted to escape through the port of the exhaust valve before they have fin ished ,their work of thrusting the piston downwards. Improperly timed valves will cause poor compression and lack of power. The valves are adjusted at the factory and the ne cessity...
