Published by Arrangement. YES, WE HAVE NO PROHIBITION [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 4 March 1926
Published by Arran?ement. YES, WE HAVE NO PROHIBITION In a careful survey of New York City crime, the "World" (New York) published the following statement by Police Commissioner Enright: "There is no use talking of the effect of Prohibition on crime when we have no'Prohibition. Come back when there is Prohibition and I'll tell you .how it has effected crime. "There has been no Prohibition anywhere in America that I know of. "I will say this, however, drunken ness is steadily increasing in. this ,country. Our records show more than double the intoxication cases now than in 1919. "Drinking, in the saloon days, pro dunced some sorts of crime--crimes of rage and suddenness-but the crimes being committed to-day by the boot leggers more than ofri;t those of the so-called pro-Prohibitiaon days:" 4
DRY CELLS FOR TESTING PURPOSES. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 4 March 1926
DRY CELLS FOR TESTING PURPOSES. To the countryman particularly, a feiw dry cells for. testing putrposes will at tines prove to be. invaluable and to the Ford owner especially this suggestion should appeal, when he is bent on trouble hupting. Connect one terminal of a battery of four or five dry cells to the. battery contact post of the coil box and:ground the other terminal of the battery to the chassis frame. After turning: ?he switch to the battery, closing the throttle -.nd retarding the spark, slightly lift' up on the starting craak and pay heed to the noise and buzz ing, of'each `of the four coil iunits. If these sound satisfactory, then start the engine by means of the battery current. If, when one switches over from the batteiry to the magneto, the engine immediately evinces a desire to run faster, then it is fairly safe.to concluded that nothing is amiss with the magneto or the 'induction coils, but that the starting. troubles, the cause of which we have been trying to ascer...
"CUT" OIL AND CRANKCASE SLUDGE. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 4 March 1926
"CUT" OIL AND CRANKCASE SLUDGE. Whilst every owner has it im pressed on him from the day he buys his car that he must not shrink from the expense of changing the engine oil completely from. time to time, it is not always understood that to ob tain the most gratifying results and the best service from the oil during its alloted span of lubricating life, there are certain matters in connec tion with the handling and care of the car which also imust be looked to. Two common circumstances which impair the efficiency of the lubricant are dilution of the oil by foreign liquids and the formation of a heavy residue or sludge in the crankcase. Dealing first of all with the former of these faults we find that there are a few simple rules of thumb which will prove very.'helpful in its pre vention. To begin with, although the "choke" should be used when starting up a cold engine, it should not be left on longer than necessary, whilst it is also desirable to allow the engine to idle with a close...

USES FOR OLD INNER TUBES [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 4 March 1926
USES FOR OLD INNER TUBES In the course of time there are certain things that the motorist accumulates and yet is often loath to throw away. The principal item is probably old inner tubes. Old in ner tubes can ,be pressed into a va riety of uses. Cut across they make excellent rubber bands, and besides the ordinary uses to which these can be put, they are.excellent ;for secur ing thei lids of tin boxes in which odds and ends are carried. Rubber washers can be cut for a variety of uses, one example being the rubber washers required in acetylene gener ators. By commencing at one end and cutting, spirally round the tube, a strip of rubber can be obtained almost as long as may be desired. This is useful, for. winding round steering ,wheels, handle-bar grips, etc., or even the handles of cricket bats and golf clubs. The valve parts Bhould always be saved, as they fre quently come in for renewals of parts or the entire valve. A piece of tube split down lengthwise makes an ex cellent roll-u...
