Friday, November Sth Under the Lights LET'S ALL BE THERE! It may be ultra-beautiful, but the posi-war model auto is more likely to stall come cold weather than its pre-war brothers ever were, according to Automobile Club of Michigan's Road Service Manager Fred N. Rehm and Michigan's tow-car owners are preparing now for a winter rush of almost 2,000,000 calls from owners of stalled and stuck cars. Battery failure was responsible for most of the 1,768,000 "can't start" calls Michigan motorists made last year. And although this failure was preventable in almost all cases, gadget-laden new cars which put a too-heavy drain on. batteries are causing more Cati't start calls yearly. "Radios, heaters ignition systems, defrosters, cigaret lighters and automatic window raisers are some of ..the electrical appliances which drain current from batteries," stated Rehm', who annually supervises pulling more cars out of the ditch than any other man in the world. "Low speed driving, frequent starts and long periods when lights must be used to help run down batteries. Most winter trips are too short to permit battery charging, and the battery is the heart 01 the car,'" the Auto Club road supervisor pointed out. Both manufacturers and car owners can help correct the situation, Rehm believes. Batteries and generators in new cars should be stronger to care for the ever- increasing list of electrical appliances. Motorists who don't take long winter trips should nave batteries charged frequently in garages and servic-c? stations or buy "trickle chargers." There are box-like affairs which operate on ordinary house current and can charge batteries overnight in their owners' garages. These precautions will make one's car start on the coldest morning. Neglecting almost any part of the car in winter can make the battery's job harder, Rehm reminded. He listed the following five things which wil help insure against battery r failure when weather makes motors frosty: 1. Keep car in a garage when possible..Direct cold wind congeals oil and makes motors hard to turn over. 2. Check battery every 10 days for water. Test for full charge. Clean terminals and tighten cables. Watch rate of charge or discharge as indicated by a dashboard dial. Failure of indicator to show "Charge" should be checked at once, Rehm warned. Prolonged operation when battery is not charging will not only ruin battery but also generator and voltage regulator. 3. Check ignition system and distributor points. Clean or replace spark plugs. Motors which start easily use less current. 4. Change to lightweight winter grade grease and oil. Motors which turn over easily use less current. 5. Have carburetor adjusted for cold weather. Stalling en.gines in cool weather is often caused by poorly-adjusted carburetors. Never were there so many reel faces in America since the Indians had complete possession as there were Wednesday morning, after an over-confident GOP, tlie Gallup pollsters, Life Magazine, Leading Newspapers and Alf Landoit crawled 'way out on a limb and let the American voter cut it off. Tuesday's election "was perhaps the greatest up^set in thi_ nation's history. Urged by his owa party stalwarts to abandon his quest for reelection before the national convention, denounced by the Dixiecrats and forsaken by Wallacites, the self-styled country boy from Missouri had to be shown, and with the whole worldl predicting his ignominious aefeat, he carried his fight directly to the people of the nation., and short on. oratory and flowery verbiage, but. long on determination and _heer Missouri pluck, he did show the world! He will be the nation's President during the coming four years,, and with the backing of a Democratic Congress and the pronounced mandate from the people he will have an advantage that he never had as a vice-president who succeeded to that office through the death of his predecessor. The next four years will prove or disprove the real quality of the man himself. The public's faith in polls wfll probably not be very great in the future. The Republican strategists were undoubtedly misled by them just as most Democrats were, and had they not been so> over-confident they might ' have changed the out-come to a Dewey victory. President of Seminary At St. Paul's Dr. F. W. Schroeder, president Eden Theological Seminary, Webster Groves, Mo., will speak. at St. Paul's Church on Sunday morning: He will be remembered by some as the speaker at the Holy Week services sponsored by the Detroit council of churches in 1947, Dr. Schroeder is an uncie of the pastor of St. Paul's Church and will be spending several days in Saline while on a speaking tour in Michigan and Indiana churches.
