He paused In his walking to and fro and came to a halt behind his friend's chair, looking down compassionately upon the back of Ramsey's motionless heud. Ills tone changed. "I guess it Isn't Just the ticket me to be talking this way to you, Is It?" he sold, with a trace of husklness. "Oh It's all right," Ramsey murmured, not altering his position.

"To Join the Canadian aviation. "No; I hadn't thought of doing It." Sh sighed again, relieved. "I hnd a queer feeling about you Just then that you were thinking of doing some such thing.

They had come to the foot of the steps that led up to the entrance of her dormitory, and their walk was at an end. As they stopped and faced each other, she looked ut him earnestly ; but he did not meet the scrutiny, his eyelids fell. "i'm not wrong, am I, Bamsey?" "About what?" he murmured, uncomfortably. "You are my friend, aren't you?" "Yes." "Then It's all right," she said.

Every motor car manufacturer is offering in his 1922 product what he considers an excellent device for getting the greatest possible power kick out of the kind of gas a car has to swallow these days. The poor-ga- s problem Is one which has grown with the motor industry. The first few "horseless carriages" puffed along on a fluid that was so volatile under ordinary atmospheric conditions that it was readily combustible. Now that the use of cars has Increased to the extent that we have forgotten the "horseless carriage" and speak of the "horseless age," the tremendous Increase In the demand for gasoline must be met by cutting lower Into the .crude oil. Gasoline distilled today contains much that was known as high grade kerosene a few years ago. It is an Indication of the progress made In cars that they hum over the hills on the fuel and sputter as little as they 1o on cold days. That's where the "more miles a gallon" engineering is lowing results. Troper combustion, In addition to its results In acceleration and mileage, affects lubrication because unburned raw gasoline leaking into the crank case thins the oil. A Worthy Ambition. The ambition of the modern motor engineer Is to introduce into the combustion chamber the most rapidly burning fuel possible. When the fuel enters In drops only the external surface of the drop is exposed to the spark. It Is necessary to evaporate the drops into a vapor before combustion is complete. If fuel can be reduced to a true gas, that is still better. Een with the bst carburetor now obtainable the gasoline Is only partly vaporized. It would he simple to apply enough heat to make the fluid into a true gas, but another difficulty enters here. As the gas is heated It expands. It heroines "thinner," there is less power In a given volume, the combustion chamber is not getting as many heat units as It should. Intake manifolds are being designed now to give just the right amount of heat to vaporize the last drop of gasoline without overheating the vapor. Heat usually Is applied only to the One of the two main liquid fuel. methods used permits the liquid to touch a hot plate over which the vaporh'.ed fuel parses without coming It'to contuct. Another series of hot spot devices uses a settling chamber1 Into which the heavier particles drop to be heated. Beset With Difficulties. Most hot devices consider another trait of the stubborn little drop of gasoline dinging to the dry wall of the intake manifold and thus sneaking into the combustion chamber without being vaporized. The most popular way of that Is to shape the Intake manifold so that there is a sharp corner in the Internal wall. The unsuspecting drop of gas creeps along the wall until It roaches the corner. There the ruph of vuporlzed gas Into the manffold gts a sweep at it. It Is as If the gas drop bad stepped Child Training at Horn, HABIT FORMATION By OLIVE ROBERTS University ef Montana. heard to say.
