a minimum of wear and tear on your

Believe it or not. your starting

ON TIRE RE-CAPS
TO BOOST SHOES
Advance in Prices
Seen and Expert Tells
How to Save Leather
If your shoes are worn, you'd bet
ter buy new ones now: because the
price Is going up, and it may be that
even leather will be rationed.
A considerable advance in the
price of shoes is seen was a result of
orders to ration the tire re-caps
which many of us had depended on
to keen our cars rolling. Word from
Washington is that recapping will be
allowed only to those persona who
are eligible to purchase new tires.
The step is taken because there wont
be enough new tires to go around,
even for eliglbles.
Tot the vast majority of us i means
that when our present tires are gone.
weH have to get a horse, or a mule
? or a pair of roller sfeatco or Trsik.
Bicycles are not the final aolutl-m. I
There Is no rationing of bicycle tires,
but when the present supply Is ex
hausted. you wont be able to get any
more. Hie makers wont be able to
get any rubber to make them wtth!
The result of all this should spell
with the choke all the way dowr.
Never race a cold engine When:
your engine first turns over. k?;p it
at just enough speed so it doesn't die, '
until it is warm.
Here's a good formula for starting i
your car in coki weather.
Pull the choke all the way out.
Then, leaving your ignition switch
off, depress the clutch pedul. and
step on the starter.
Now, count to four, slowly, while 1
the motor is turning over.
Now push your choke back in until
it's between one-quarter and one
half wa yout. The colder th3 weath- 1
er the farther out you should leave
Now turn on your ignition and step
on the clutch pedal and starter.
Tour engine should eaten at this
j point If it doesnt, repeat thi pro
cess. starting from the beginning.
Your clutch pedal should ALWAYS
j be depressed when you step on the
i starter, cold weather or warm. This
I practice will reduce tne load On your
batLery and make for easier starting.
prosperity for the shoe repair men
Also, according to Miss Julia Mclver,
extension clothing specialist of N. C.
State College, it calls for greater care
of shoes to make them last longer.
Miss Mclver says that the best
way to conserve shoes is to polish
them. Polishing, she says, feeds the
leather, makes it pliable, and pro
The greatest waste in leather, ac- '
cording to the specialist, comes from 1
failure to dry shoes properly after I
being out in the rain.
"Wet shoes should be dried slowly ,
not too close to an open fire, an l
never in a hot place like the top of n
r adit tor, or in an oven", Miss Mclve' i
instructs. "First wash off all mud
with a damp cloth, and wipe the sui- |
face as dry as possible. Oil the shoes j
lightly, all over, and rub in. Straight- ,
en the heels, toes and vamps if they
need it. Then stuff the shoes with ;
crumpled paper. Set in a moderately I
warm place, and polish when dry."
Water-proofing helps, says the |
statement, but wearing overshoes. I
when it is raining, is best.
