THE COALITION. (TO the Editor) [Newspaper Article] — Taralga Echo — 6 December 1924

THE COALITION. (TO' the Editor) Dear - Sir,—Misapprehension hav ing been caused in certain quarters by the use of the phrase "National Progressive Coalition Campaign" in an advertisement calling for candi dates to contest the next election, I would be thankful Tor a little space in your journal to state that there was no ulterior motive—no deep, dark plot—in the use in the present campaign of the title that was used throughout the campaign in 1922. The truth is that the conditions are identical. The meml/ers of the Progressive or Country Party, who threw in their lot with the Nation alists three years ago for the sake of the unity of the anti-Socialist forces, are still working harmonious ly with the National Party, though they maintain their separate name and identity as Progresssives. And the fact that the official Progressive Party disowns them does not entitle the Nationalists to ignore them, or to treat them willy-nilly as Nation alists. The use of the compound, "National - Pro...

People coming from the post-office unthinkingly throw away paper wrappers. ..etc:, and this matter is blown away by the wind, anywhere, causing timid and restless horses to ' become -seared, and, as before stated, breuk away. They, in their mad career, may perhaps cause a serious accident. It is difficult i enough to avoid be ing hit by a fast-travelling motor car. It is, however, more difficult to side-step a runaway horse, particu larly for aged persons and children.

As the average owner-ilriver knows, he lias a very important piece of ma chinery under the bonnet of his car called-the engine, without which his car would be of very little use to him.

All car engines are not alike with regard' to their oiling system, though practically ev ery up-to-date car carries the oil in what is called the crank case, i.e., the lower hall' of the engine.. The main oiling systems at present in use are the pressure feed, pressure and splash, and the splash alone. We will not use valuable space ex plaining how these work, as it will not be hard for any,owner, to ask through these columns questions re lating to the particular one fitted to his car. It is a very important matter to see that there is always enough oil kept in the crank case to supply the engine, also that,the oil is the cor rect grade. A lot of motoristsv to day simply dri...
