When Major Segrave Steps On
It The Auto Sure Does Travel
Literary Digest.
The average motorist, who sel
dom drives faster than sixty miles
an hour, will find it difficult, re
marks the Hartford Courant, to
realize what it would feel like to
travel at about four times that gait.
So far, only one ntan has driven an
automobile at such breath-taking
speed—Maj. H. O. D. Segrave, of
Great Britain; the American driver,
who attempted to break the maj
or's record, established on March 11
at Daytona Beach, was killed, along
with a photographer, when his 1,
500-horsepower machine got out of
control.
The major’s Irying-Napier spe
cial, which , established a new
world’s record of 231.36 miles an
hour, is steered partly by an air
plane-type rudder, and is held to
the ground so that its wheels will
maintain traction by tiny planes
[which, if tilted upward, says the
Philadelphia Inquirer, "undoubted
ly would make it soar tlirough the
air in giant leaps.” As the Buffalo
Courier-Express observes:
"One is rather at a loss whether
to marvel first at the man or his
machine. There must have been as
high a degree of perfection in one
as in the other to travel over Day
tona’s speedway in both directions
at an average speed of less than
sixteen seconds per mile. A fault in
mechanism, a human nerve out of
place, would have been equally
fatal.
"Most of us have no desire what
ever to drive an automobile at the
rate of nearly four miles a minute
Such speed we are quite willing to
leave to the other fellow. However,
| if it weren’t for the other fellow,
neither the automobile nor the
airplane motor would be in its
present high degree of perfection.”
Throngs of breathless spectators
packed the grandstand at Daytona
Beach on the day of the race
against time. Thousands of people
stretched along the sand-dunes.
Obtaining a four-mile stark the
British major drove his glistening
twelve-cylinder machine at a daz
zling pace along the sandy stretch,
steering by means of a peep-sight
trained on a target nine miles
away. The "Golden Arrow,” says an
Associated Press observer, appear
ed like a blur before the eyes of the
awe-stricken spectators, as it sped
down the course and came to a
stop four miles off. With a mighty
roar, it flashed past the grand
stand on its return Journey, fairly
skimmipg the sands. The first mile?
said the announcer, was traveled

at the rate of 231.51 miles per hour:
the second at 231.21 miles. Even
this was not fast enough for Maj
or *Segrave. who Is quoted In dis
patches as saying, after the test:
"I have a feeling 01 disappoint
ment over this Job today. The car
is good for 240 miles an hour, but
I could not get that out of it. The
beach was not nearly so goad as it
was two years ago, when I made
203.79 miles an hour with the
"Sunbeam."
**The worst moment was when,
during the second run, the offside
radiator burst and shot out a great
cloud of steam and water. The wa
ter hit me in the face, and the
steam floated across my field of
vision.”
Since there is no thought of util
izing such tremendous speed in any
form of useful transportation, the
question naturally comes up. What
is the good of such performances,
which are always accompanied with
serious risks? The value, says tha
Indianapolis News, "lies In tha
practical demonstration of tha
sturdiness and reliability of engine
and motor car design.”
The New York World on tha
other hand, maintains that “the
high-speed racing car la merely on
expensive toy, and its accomplish
ments are^not helpful to the great
industry of car production.”

COMPLETE CONTROL^—The “Caterpil
lar” goes where you direct it. Rows ai'e
straight—ready for later cultivation—
less time is lost on turns. Hug the fences,
work out the corners—close work that
kills off the weeds at their best breeding
places, the edge of the field.
And when there’s weather to fight, the
“Caterpillar” is the fanner’s ablest ally!
For it goes where it is asked to go,
Easy to drive, deep springs and balanced
design, easy to turn. These take the strain
from a long day in the field. Driving com- «
fort is a big factor during the long season
when there isn’t much time to rest.
WHEN the soil is ready . . . When you
are Teady , . . the “Caterpillar” is ready >
too. |
We will prove these facts to you by
demonstration.
