A WARNING TO MOTOR TRUCK USERS. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 30 July 1925
A WARNING TO MOTOR TRUCK USERB. Motor Arms have lately realised the necessity and benefit of educat ing their customers who purchase commercial vehicles in the proper upkeep and driving of their motor trucks, whilst other experts have been laying stress on the need for a more general reailsation of the factor of depreciation when it comes to assessing profits or probable returns. Many commercial carriers and others who look to their trucks to save them money and to earn more for them do not base their depreciation on a good foundation. The method recom mended by many experts is to assess the life of the vehicle at, say, 50,000 miles and then to determine how much this equals in depreciation per mile. Let us assume for argument's sake that depreciation works out at 3d per mile. This means that in the case of the hire carrier his scale of charges must be assessed taking that extra running cost of 3d for every mile into account. Firms and others using motor transport for the sake of ec...
Reign of Terror [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 30 July 1925
Reign of Terror Sir A Maurice Low, the Washing ton correspondent of the "Morning Post" (London) has contributed to that journal an article under the heading "The Tragedy of Prohibit ion." The tragedy, in his opinion, is seen in the lowering of the general standard of morality of the American people. "In consequence of Prohibition," he says, "not only is the law, crim inal and moral, being re-written, but the whole attitude of the American people in regard to both law and morality is in process of transforma tion." Coincident with that opinion the New York correspondent of the Lon don "Daily Mail'. sent the following despatch to that journal: "A Prohibition reign of terror has been started in Indianna by the en forcement of. the Prohibition "bone dry" law. "The most modest supply of liquor in the home is illegal and news of the possession of one bottle is suffici ent to cause a raid. "Residents are declaring that no country ever saw a more drastic in fringement of the rights of the h...

BAD DRIVING SPELLS £.s.d. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 30 July 1925
BAD DRIVING SPELLS £.s.d. The majority of motorists are not in that happy position where the sums which they are obliged to spend each year in the upkeep of their cars is of no importance or sig nificance. Indeed, many of us look ruefully at the butts of our cheque book at the end of the year and won der why on earth the car has cost so much to run. To some extent the large disbursements may point to our having been the victim of unscru pulous motor engineers and others of a like sort, but the blame of a great deal of the high costs of mo toring can be laid at the door, or to be more accurate, at the hands and feet of the driver himself. One act of bad driving may not in itself do any apparent or tangible damage to the car, but the cumulative effect of such conduct throughout the year does not take long to make itself felt. This question of bad driving is one quite apart from neglect to keep the car properly lubricated and adjusted and refers simply to the faulty or negligent manipu...

MOTOR NOTES WHAT TO PAY FOR A USED CAR ? [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 30 July 1925
MOTOR NOTES - - p s8 WHAT TO PAY FOR A USED' CAR ? b b A variety of factors have caused b in a great many centres in Australia o quite a glut of cars in the second- is hand market, whilst almost every- t, where second-hand cars are to be r found in greater abundance than p ever before. The very variety of b used models which is now obtain- a able is in itself often most perplex- 4 ing to the prospective buyer. As is c inevitably the case in every depart- a ment of .commerce where supply ex ceeds demand, prices drop and the a second-hand car market has been no I exception, but in deciding what is an advisable price to pay for any a particular model, there are a num- t ber of considerations peculiar to the t subject in question, which must be borne in mind. Why is it that there has been such an extraordinary in crease in the total of second-hand cars offered to the public. The an swers are not far to seek. To begin with, in spite of the fact that the 'general scale of costs in most di...
PUBLICITY VALUE. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 30 July 1925
PUBLICITY VALUE. Another point which too often is lost sight of is the publicity value which may be obtained from the commercial vehicle; more especially does this apply in the case of retail houses who desire to win the esteem and favor of the general public. Sucb concerns in particular should see that commercial vehicles are always kept well painted and in good trim and that the sides and walls especially of enclosed bodies are used to the best advantage for advertising purposes, by having conspicuous and attractive designs painted upon them. Since the motor vehicle mostly attracts the attention of the man in the street when it is in motion, it is a mistake to indulge in a wealth of lettering. and a clever poster efect with one or two words underneath will prove of ininitely more value from a publicity standpoint than some long detailed screed which the pedestrian has not time to read before the vehicle has vanished from his sight.
CHOOSING THE COMMERCIAL BODY. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan-Canberra Advocate — 30 July 1925
CHOSING TIHE COMMEMMCAL BODY. We have already spoken of the considerations which should influence the man about to buy motor trans port in his selection of a suitable commercial chassis to meet his needs. The chassis having been bought, there comes the almost equally im portant problem of fitting it with a body suited fQr the work to be per formed. Ease of loading and un loading must be the first considera tion and very often a little ingenuity in design based on the peculiar cir cumstances of each case will allow some slight modification in the con struction of the body that will speed up loading and unloading consider ably. For instance where a motor truck is regularly plying to a goods siding or some loading dock of ample length, it should be well worth while having the sides of the body as well as the tail-board so built that they may be detached easily. This means that instead of placing the vehicle tail-on to the loading dock, it may be run alongside and loaded in half the tim...

QUEANBEYAX PUBLIC SCHOOL. New furniture, in the way of a table, chairs, and 20 desks, the latter capable of seating two scholars each, has recently been received at Quean beyan Public School.
