THE DEGENERATES A SATIRE OF MODERNITY [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Mail — 7 November 1926

[?] ? w A SATIRE OF MODERNITY (By D.T.) Hark Linton's taste in socks was faultless; his clothes were inspirations, and his hat had that air of opulent importance that is seen in the adver tisements of good cigarettes, wherein a striking example of the hatter's art is placed carelessly against a gold-knobbed stick upon an occasional table. But Linton was not a dandy. He was not anything in particular, but wae somehow asked to all parties, and to the dances that the Mirribilli Club knew so well how to prepare. He had joined that club of exclusive and entertaining Bohemians because of one reason, and i that was the fact of one of its mem bers being the golden -headed, extremely I interesting Xorjna Fielding, who had spent two years upon the stage, and the remaining two in and out of the divorce courts. Linton thought her exquisite, which she was, and which she also agreed with — silentlv. One afternoon, with two empty cock tail glasses beside him at a table, and half a tray full of par...

MOTORING IN BRITAIN An Australian's Impressions [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Mail — 7 November 1926

MOTORING IN BRITAIN ? — i^f-^ ? An Australian's Impressions Mr. X, J. Xehve.l of \ Sydney,' gives the following impressions of. a holiday in -Britain: — . I have just ' completed nearly 6000 miles from Land's End to John o'Groafs in an * Austin Twelve Windsor saloon, and did not once have to use a spanner or tool of any kind on the machine. I thjtnk ? I climbed every hill from the Devil's Elbow to. the Old Porlock Hill, had no overheating and ample power on all grades. Devil's Elbow was. nego tiated on second speed, and part of the time there were five in the car, and very heavy luggage. The English roads are perfect every where, and I hope some day in Austra lia we shall have ' some roads to com pare with t.hem. The average motorist is a good driver, and careful; the police, however, should have means of dealing with the road hog and careless driver. Hern are my observations. .Most of them probabl;* are old. some of them may be new. However, here they are for what they may bo worth...

FENDER RATTLES [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Mail — 7 November 1926

FENDER RATTLES Unsubstantial fen.ler irons — in some light cars particularly, 'when these are made of half round or flat irou and fitted in f.uch a mnnner that they overhang considerably from the point of support, are not rigid enough to prevent' springing under the strain of constant road shocks. The result is the valance- and the iron slap together with a sound like that, of beating a tin can, yet. when the car is stationary and the owner feels the fenders to find the slackness which causes the noise they usually appear to be per fectly rigid. A good plan is to force the valance hack with a screw driveT and insert a small piece of leather or rubber such as a sliee from an old inner tube.' Felt may also .be _ used. ' Though the fender and valance appear to fit snugly against the supporting iron -when the car i« stationary, vibration set' up when the car is iu operation causes the noise and the pad will insulate the noise so that it is not transmitted to other parts.

TOURING MADE EASIER. [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Mail — 7 November 1926

TOURING MADE EASIER. Anything that will save expenditure of energy when taking a long trip is welcomed by the tourist. Much is done to make passengers comfortable, but the driver seems to feel that he must apply himself to the job at hand without a moment of relaxation. One of the reliefs discovered by ingenious drivers is using the left foot to operate the brake pedal when keep ing the car undpr control on down grades. The muscles of a motorist's left leg are somewhat stronger than those of his right leg, because they are accustomed to pressing out tno clutch against' fairly heavj' spring pres sure. It is easy to press the brake pedal v.ith the left foot. Try it some time.
