TRUCK   BEATS   FAST  FREIGHT TRAIN  In making a recent 533-mile trip  overland from New York to Akron, 0.,  in sixty hours, total time, and in forty-  nine hours' actual running time, a loaded^'1-2-ton Mack truck beat the fastest Pennsylvania Railroad freight delivery by forty-eight hours.  SERVES COAL COMPANY.  A motor truck is proving its worth  delivering ice and coal for the Southern Ice & Utility Company of Paris,  Texas. It is in use ten hours a day  and haa replaced four horses and does  the work-in half the time formerly  needed.  MAKES GOOD  MILEAGE'  Though the Athens Pottery Company's truck makes an average of forty  stops ,a day, it makes an average of  eighteen miles on a gallon of gas. It  is used in hauling stoneware. The  Maxwell also runs about forty miles a  day.  NO AUTOMOBILE EMBARGO.  Ottawa Government Declares it Has  Taken No Action in the Matter.  OTTAWA—Large numbers of telegrams have been received here asking  if tho government, has placed an embargo on Americanautomobiles to take  effect^ on April 15. No such action, it  is stated authoritatively, has been  taken'' by the cabinet.  OVERLOADING SOLID TIRES.     v  * To 'hosts of truck 'drivers, solid tires  are 'apparently nothing more than  chunks of rubber fastened to. the  wheels—what can hurt them? They  wilLf-wear out in course of time any-  wayrsowhy bother to look after them? Rubber .Co., Akron/Ohio.  These big tires look so sturdy and  rugged that they do not appear to need  any special care. Butf ideas like this  have cost the motor truck tire users  of the country a vast sum of money  in the aggregate. The severity of the  performance demanded of a non-pneumatic truck tire usually more than  makes up for its lack of delicacy, so  that 'reasonable care with a truck tire  is just as essential as with a motor  car tire. .  • Overloading is one of the great abuses visited upon truck tires. In many  cases . overloading is intentional, but  in the majority of instances the practice is carried on unknowingly or carelessly. The result is the same in either  case. The overstrain soon breaks  down the tire before its appointed  time.  A solid truck tire will enduse a certain strain andrnot-a bit more than  that. When rubber is compresed to a  certain point its compressibility ceases  and any pressure beyond'that point  causes the rubber particles to crack  and separate from each other, and the  tire is weakened so that it becomes  niore susceptible-to.common injuries.  The life is crushed out of the tire and  it never resumes it former resiliency.  Overloading, of course, is only one  of the abuses to which truck tjres are  commonly subjected, but it is'the most  prevalent.- Overloading is .bound to  increase, the cost of operation greatly  and while the tires are wearing away  abnorma:iy,.the truck itself is depreciating at an unreasonable rate. If  yon must overload your truck, equip it  with oversize tires when your old ones  wear out. They will be far more economical 'in the.end.—Goodyear Tire &  7n£$aa*ca£&r*J!K2E23e5a«^.iis^  f- /""pRUXTUN is the way out of the hauling  * 1 problem—the easy way, the economical way,  *u -u„* «rflv the satisfactory way.
