Simplified Motoring (Continued) developed for cold-weather driving. Different types of hand-warmers, electrically controlled and attached to the steeringwheel, are appearing The tonneau is warmed by the hot gases from the exhaust carried through a heater before passing through the muffler. Such a heater can be regulated to suit weather conditions The car-owner is relieved of the worry and danger of driving with a snow or rain covered windshield by the use of a windshield cleaner. By merely pulling a string he can be assured a clear vision through the windshield without stopping the car

A popular system of engine temperature control is that employing a thermal coil or thermostat controlling the flow of water through the radiator. When the water is cold, the passage leading to the radiator is closed and the water is forced through the engine jackets. When the water becomes heated, the thermostat automatically opens and the radiator becomes part of the circulating system. In the meantime the engine has rapidly attained its normal efficiency through the rapid heating of the portion of the water which has passed through it.

The man who drives his car in the winter time will require a warm garage. Complete heating plants for garages have accordingly, been devised. One of the best systems burns coal as fuel and distributes hot water through pipes, automatically regulated, to all parts of the garage. The plant burns only about five cents' worth of coal a day, and requires attention only once, or in very cold weather twice, a day. It is absolutely safe from fire and has, indeed, been approved by fire underwriters.

THE MOTOR CAR OF THE FUTURE When we look back upon the motor car of ten years ago, we marvel at the tremendous strides that have been made in securing comfort and simplicity of operation. Accessory manufacturers have been most ingenious in devising mechanical or automatic contrivances to replace practically every operation formerly accomplished by physical effort. One need only push button, turn a lever, or pull a string in order to secure smooth and efficient operation of his car.

A writer in the “ Scientific American" has recently made an interesting prophecy of the motor car of the future. Here are a few of the points that he discusses .

The automobile of the future will be weather tight. It will have glass sides, front, rear, and roof. The glass sides will come down for warm weather and curtains will keep out the glare.

A new fuel will be used, developing direct electrical energy.

It will have electrical brakes using stored engine energy, and an electrical steering control.

Driving will be done from a small control board which can be held in the lap. The driver may sit in any seat he chooses, front or back, as the coutrol board will be readily movable. The car will be low, so one can easily step into it

. A six-inch clearance will be ample, as all roads will be smooth, level, and hard,

The car of the future will carry neither extra tires nor extra wheels. There will be either a polipuncturable tire or an entirely new substitute for rubber.

The above prophecy may or may not come true.

But if automobile and accessory mandfacturers make as rapid strides in the next ten years as they have in the past decade, the perfect motor car will have been almost attained.

The Outlook SCHOOL BUREAU

announces that it is prepared to give information concerning all types of schools, viz., preparatory schools, colleges and academies, schools for music, art and the drama, vocational schools, correspondence schools, special schools, etc.—and this information is furnished gratis to our readers.

We cannot over-emphasize the importance of selecting the right school for your boy or girl, and a great deal of time and careful thought should be given to a perusal of school catalogues and other data relative to the schools you are especially interested in before making a definite decision.

Wherever possible a representative of The Outlook, who is in charge of this work, has made a survey of the schools, and will thus give you the benefit of these personal visits.

If you will let us know the type of school you are interested in, the age and sex of your child, and any other data which you think will aid us in making our suggestions, we will gladly see that complete information and literature are sent you.

THE PRUSSIAN VIEW-POINT

When the war first started, I had an ac-

caught in this country by the sudden out-
break of hostilities. One day I repeated to
her what I considered a humorous conver-

men. The men were speaking of a mutual
friend.
