Because of the tremendous growth
In commerclnl trafllc on tho highways

Even our most substantial roads
showed the effects of this additional
trafllcj nnd tho xuoro cheaply built
thoroughfares began to deteriorate
rapidly In fact so fast that It was
necessary for highway ofllclnls to ex-
ercise their rights under the stnto
laws and limit the weight of loads.
The highways we have been build-
Ins In-recent years even tho perma-
nent types are not heavy enough to
carry the ever Increasing commerclnl
traffic. Knglneers realize now that
tho roads must be considerably thick-
er than nt present nnd thnt they must
'bo wider "to give room for the addi-
tional vehicles being plnced In service.
Another phase of tho commerclnl
traffic problem Is thnt of tiro equip-
ment. It Is going to bo necessary to
equip nil trucks with pncumntlcs
eventually In order thnt tho highways
mny be protected ns much as possible.
The pneumntlc tiro gets away from
tho constnnt pounding thnt Is evident
with solid tires. They absorb the

In some of the states where high-

much work has been done on high-

a pnrt' of tho national' system. It Is
proposed that In theso cases states or

Established ThafCarburetor Does Not
Vaporize Gasoline but Mixes It
With Air Adds to Tendency of
Engine to Make Carbon.
If the motorcnr owner could watch
tho flow of gasoline from tho enrburc-
tor Into tho Intake manifold ho would
discover that his car as one of tho
ditties of the day harmonizes It Is
"forever blowing bubbles." He would
find thnt what ho thinks Is condensa-
tion of gnsollne Is not condensation nt
all but lack of vaporization.
Tho steam carburetor has n vital re-
lation tp this "blowing of bubbles" In
the gasoline Intake manifold and It en-
ables tho Intake manifold to accom-
plish n complete vaporlzHtlon of the
gnsollne eliminating whnt tho owner
thinks Is condensation of gnsollne.

Ames engineers established that the
carburetor does not vaporize tho gaso-
line. All It'doos Is mix the gasoline
with nlr. This mixture then passes
Into the Intnke mnnjfold. (
In Hie center of this stream -as It

observed a Mulsh cloud-like vnpor.
while to ench side of this was gaso-
line In sprayed form.
The gasoline sprays nt each side of
.the bluo vapor cloud were drawn to-
ward tho cylinders by the suction of
tho motor. As they passed In they
presently struck against the wall of
the Intuke manifold. At this point
the sprays turned Into tiny globules
of gasollno or nlr In other words
Into bubbles. Theso bubbles clung to

drawn Into tho explosion chambers In
Waste of Fuel.
This bubble formation of tho gnso-
llne represents tho nverngQ owner's
wnsto of fuel. It Also ndds to tho
tendency of the motor to make carbon.
The steam carburetor shoots hot'
live steam Into tho manifold Just
above the carburetor proper nnd this
steam eliminates the bubble formation
of gasollno nnd converts all the gas-
6ltne Into vapor form.
HOOD OF CAR DULLS QUICKLY
Best Plan to Wipe Bonnet Off Care-
fully After Drive Through Rain
to Hold Finish.
Because of tho extremes of tempera-

well to wlpo oft tho hood cwefully
after n run In the rain because mois-

usually spots It ruining tho fine finish
