CAN PETROL BE DOPED? [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Mail — 3 October 1926
CAN PETROL BE DOPED? After undertaking a large number of tests, the United states Bureau of Stan dards has come to the conclusion that the majority of the so-called fuel dopes for petrol are worthless. The official scientists have subjected these concoc tions to various tests without being able to -Ji»termin« whether nnv nnnrecinble improvement in fuel consumption is de rived from them. The merits of these fuel dopes are bluntly characterised by the Bureau as unfounded and worth less. All that can be saicl is that a gain in mileage is obtained by adjusting the carburettor to leaner mixtures of petrol in compliance with instructions issued by the manufacturers.

MUSCLE IN MUSIC CURIOUS INVESTIGATION [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Mail — 3 October 1926
MUSCLE IN MUSIC CURIOUS INVESTIGATION To measure art in terms of some other less ornamental occupation may uot result in teaching us how to be artists, but it will at least furnish Id- I formation to those who think life's! burdens are unfairly distributed. A ; German arid ? a Swiss scientist have been investigating the energy a musician uses up in the pursuit of his career. Professor Lowy, of Davos, and Dr. Schrotter, of Vienna, who occupied HiemsAlvps with this important prob lem, found that a pianist used up 10 times as much energy as a tailor. There seems to be no extravagance in this calculation. If there be any exaggera tions in the comparison it would seem lo lie in the limit of the pianist's energy. There have been pianists playing with orchestras and trying to make their instruments heard above the j sound produced by' the other musicians j who have seemed to be working with | more than. 10 times the energy of a. j tailor. Iu their expenditure of physi- j cal force they hav...
