Improper Methods Are Some-
times Worse for the Finish
Than None at All.

Cleaning Solution! Containing Ammo-
nia or Any Kind of Lye Soap Should
De Avoided Loosen Mud
and Dirt Gently.
Tho purchaser of a motorcar proud
of Its resplendent luster Is prone to
raake many commendable resolutions
pertaining to Its frequent washing nnd
cleaning nnd then actually do more
harm than good In the zeal with which
theso operations are carried out
If one could watch the minute care
with which the final surfaro Is built
up at the factory where coat after
coat of expensive material Is deftly
applied and carefully rubbed the car
owner would be more specific when
he gives Instructions to hnve the car
Do Not Use Brush.
Ho would make sure that the water
Is no warmer than CO degrees for no
varnish will withstand sudden appli-
cation of hot water. No matter how
much mud or dirt Is on the enr It
should not bo scrubbed oil with a
brush. Cleaning solutions should be
avoided especially If they contain am-
monia or any kind of lye soap. And
the practice of removing mud and dirt
by a harsh water blast Is decidedly
detrimental beeauso the blast drives
the grits of dutt and mud Into the
The Integrity of the varnish Is Im-
paired by every scratch It receives.
Because these scratches often are so
small that they arc not apparent to
the eye does not lessen their danger
to the finish! Examine a car Tilth the
aid of an enlarging glass nfter It has
received a thoughtlcsi "rush" washing
nnd tho apparent glasslike surface Is
found to be actually broken up into
countless cuts and scratches. The
process need be continued only a com-
paratively few times when these
scratches will he worn through the
coats of finishing vnralsh allowing
moisture to seep Into the undercoats
and the llnlsli will begin to check
crawl and disintegrate.
Right Water Pressure.
When running water Is used the
pressure should be Just sufllclcnt to
keep the water moving six Inches
from tho open hose. Then the mud
nnd dirt should be gently loosened
with n soft clenn cloth or sponge ir
Eoap must bo used It should be pure
cnstlle. When the car Is clean It
should he showered with cool but not
cold water especially If warm water
lias been used at tho beginning of tho
work or If the car Is to be run out
Into cold weather. It Is advisable to
wash one section nt a time drying
with n good chamois. In using the
chamois tho motion should be In
straight lines rather than circular.
Tho chamois should be kept clean
throughout tho operation washing It
out frequently with soap and water
and rinsing thoroughly with clean
water. Do not rub a varnished sur-
face after It Is dry.
Every time tho car comes In nfter
a muddy trip it should be washed be-
foro the mud hns a chance to set or
Driver Should Remember That Prop
er Supply la Just ai Important aa
Supply of daaolln and Oil-
Keep Close Watch.
There Is always r day of reckoning
for those who neglect details In the
caro of their car and that day Is like-
ly to como when you lost expect or
desire 1L What you think you have
saved by neglect will bo spnt In ex-
pensive roudslde repairs. Attending
to dctnlls Is thrice chcaiwr and what
Is more relieves future worries.
And one detail of your car which
you should watch carefully Is your
radiator. Trouble Is sure to come un-
less It Is kept full at all times. Form
the habit of Inspecting and refilling
the radiator before the car Is taken
(torn the gnrngo. When on long tours
especially If jou have been doing con-
siderable hill climbing keep a weather
oyo peeled townrd the water supply.
Ilemembcr that tho proper amount
of water Is as Important as your sup-
ply of gasoline nnd oil. It Is not n
bad plnn to examine the water supply
every time you stop for gasoline or
oil. Uao clear water nnd If ruin wa-
ter Is obtainable employ It as less
scale and deposit will result.
Tho cellular openings always should
be kept clean. Keep mud from re-
maining In them as It cuts down radi-
ation und presents proper cooling. You
should occasionally Hush tho entire
circulating sjstera. This may be done
by disconnecting both the upper nnd
lower hoso connections nnd allowing
fresh water to enter the filler neck
nnd flow down through the radiator
nnd out the lower hose. The motor
water Jackets can bo flushed out In
the same wny.

A new rear-spring system for light"
weight cars Is said to act In tho ca-
pacity of a shock absorber or snubber
In lessening the effects of n Jolt when
one of the rear wheels drops Into

ns well as to serve the prlmnry func-

Ntw Federal Act Will Give United
6tate Beit System ef Improved
Road In Warld.
The new federal highway act will
give the United Slates the best high-
way system In the. world. This menus
greater comforts for sightseers as they
motor over the country and it means
direct public benefits In better trans-
portation of farm products to shipping
points. Money extended for Improved
hlghwnjs Is money wisely invested
providing the program Is kept within
tho ability of taxpayers to pay the bill
without burdening themselves unduly.
About 180000 miles of road are In
cluded In the system being mapped nut
by federal nnd state engineers. The
federal hlghwny act requires thnt nil
federal aid bo spent on n connected
s)stem consisting of not mora than 7
per cent of the road mileage In ench
state and that this whole scheme shall
consist of Interstate and primary roads
and Intercounty and secondary roads.
Several states hnve adjusted some
what dlfllcuH problems from neighbor
Ing states. Kor exnmple the Nebras-
ka system showed n big gnp In an Im-
portant hlghwny along the northern
boundary. South Dakota has agreed
to follow with a road plan which will
fit like pictures on toy blocks. Under
the federal net only roads certain to
be on the general system hnve been
approved for construction.
The days of highway building by the
fanners In their spare time Is becom-
ing a thing of the pnst. The Job Is
being done on a big scnlc now.

THE STEP M5YOND
JUST a step beyond the barriers
which have so long defied in nnd
we are sure of our ground certain of
realizing our fondest hopes nnd
marching on und on with tho victors.
The thought thrills us with elation
but how hard It la to make tho final
stride when wo nro worn nnd weary.
Human nature Is prime to lose cour-
ago when the chuse Is tiresome.
It Inclines to become dMienrtcned
when carefully worked out plans nnd
calculations full Immediately to pro-
duce iinllilpntcd results.
The fatal fault with most of us Is
lack of patience coupled with an Incli-
nation to be governed by Impulse
rather than rcuson nt the turning mo-
ment when everj thing Is dependent
on cnlmness nnd firmness of purpoi.
We Incline to haste when we should
go slowly and Inke nccurntu account
of our energy where wo should con-
serve It that our minds may not bo
filled with fenr and finally overcome
with sickening apprehension.
In business ns In line most of our
miserable failures result from our re-
fusal to consider seriously the fctep
Tor some paltry reason n whim of
the fancy or a laxity of activity we
find ourselves at the crucial moment
weary of Hie chase.
So wc Rlt In tin' Inviting shndo of
a friendly nook while our more am-
bitious rivals steal n march upon us
and rupture (ho prlre only u slop
hejond our Impatient renrh.
The blame Is our own. Hut the
truth never penetrates our souls until
the clear perspective of years gives
us n shnrper vision which enables us
to see our folly.
It Is not until then thnt we fully un-
derstand our shortcomings.
To make nnii'tids for our own de-
ficiencies w proceed to pass around
advice to our Intimates which as a
rule falls on barren ground. They
know us I
There Is hut n step between sue-t-ss
and failure likewise but n step
between hope and despair. When the
occasion comes for action very few of
us nlas know how to make the step
though It Is Inviting and lies nn air
And yet there Is probably no other
movement more vitally Important to
mnn's future success than the Mep
