all other apparatus of this kind, is
open for inspection to students of the
University at all times.
The Reo the Fifth which has been
in the laboratory for the last year has
recently been equipped with a Warner'
speedometer, special seats and floor
boards and special gasoline measuring
tanks for conducting fuel accounting
tests on the road. This gasoline test-
ing outfit is the same as that used by
the research division, of S. A. E. in
the special tests on Sheepshead Bay
track last fall, which proved entirely
satisfactory. At present these tests
are run regularly by the laboratory
testing squads. A gate has been set
up on the front axle which operates
the trippers, which are used in con-
nection with the special acceleration
testing outfit for detecting accelera-
tion or pick-up of a car. This ap-
paratus consists of electrical contacts
which are located on the road at in-
tervals of a hundred feet and a re-
volving drum upon which a marker
registers seconds and also the time of
contact of each tripper on the road.
This complete apparatus has been
developed by the M. E. 33 research
squad this semester.
The new Maxwell motor, received in

testing rack and fitted with exhausting
