CARE WITH THE CLUTCH [Newspaper Article] — South Coast Bulletin — 15 February 1929
CARE WITH THE CLUTCH Many drivers, who own a car. which has a very sweet clutch develop the habit of slipping it in order to make a smooth getaway when this speed -drops to 10 m.p.h. or so in top gear, adopting a similar plan at lower speeds in the case of indirect Rears. ires is a very bad practice, as exces sive wear of the clutch lining will take pl.-ce, and the tfcr* for renewal will come very much sooner. If a car will not accelerate smoothly from a low speed, a hange down should be made. A good rule — which covers practically all conditions— Is never to slip the clutch except when getting under way in bottom gear.
HELPFUL HINTS Oiling the Springs [Newspaper Article] — South Coast Bulletin — 15 February 1929
HELPFUL HINTS Oiling the Springs Broken springs are usually caused by loose spring clips which permit sufficient strain to reach the centre of the spring, which Is its weakest point, to cause a fracture.

LONG TYRE LIFE MOST IMPORTANT FACTORS [Newspaper Article] — South Coast Bulletin — 15 February 1929
LONG TYRE LIFE MOST IMPORTANT FACTORS Many motorists are most illneiiai in Uie way they rpir»r J -Uwr tyre*. So^tciuh is- expected in the way of 'lon£ useful life, but little is Riven beyond infrequent attention to pres Butres. Motorists who pay attention to their tvres invariablv obtain satis factory mileage. The remedy for most tyre troubles is to be found in the slogan, 'Test your tyres every Frl ' day.' The whole load of a car is supported bv the air contained in the tyres, and if the pressure is not suf ficient for the load undue wear of the treads of the tyres takes pla.ee — . -? though at first it may not be quite clear why this is to. The tread sur face should be in rollirfe contact and not in rubbing contact with the road, 'and the load should be carried mainly on the centre of the tread. When the air presBoM is insufficient the cuter cover is distorted excessively under load, and this causes a buncnirg or ''wiping' movement of the tread. In these circumstances the sides of...

Returning home after the chase of the cave bear he played the flute to his family and a few choice friends. That is the- scene which Professor Brodar, who has been exploring the Fotocka Cave, brings before as. Be neath the deposits of centuries he found the bones of the bear worked into awls and needles and other im plements with which the cave man stitched the skins that protected Mm from the blasts of the retreating Ice Age. Far more remarkable than these wdre bones rounded and carved and drilled with littte circular holes flutes without a doubt.

TREASURE TROVE Some tlrce ago some fishermen found a great bronze band in their netel and this led to the discovery of a statute of a esaKOd near C&pe Arte fnisium, in Greece. There has been an interesting sequel. The Archaeological Society put for ward the theory that years «go a ship with Greek antiques and art trea suzbs might have been wrecked at this point. The Greek Government has lent the society a bydrograpbic service ship and supplied money for a search. Working in 25 fathoms of water, guided br touch, the divers found many things to confirm the theory of a wreck. There was a great heap of pebbles, perhaps the ship's ballast, aad them were traces of wood. Oreesure was found, too. It In cluded a bronze statue of a little boy and a magnificent horse's head said to be unmatched in any art collection. Then there is a huge earthenware amphora, meant to hold wine, but when the direis found It the jar held a laiso octopus. It Is hard to imagine a more hideous Jack-to-the-B...
