BY PAUL V. COLLINS T VERY blacksmith and wheelwright

V knows that the way to fit a tire onto the felloe is to heat the tire, so that while it is expanded by the heat it is larger than the felloe, and as it cools it contracts, binding itself fast upon the wheel. But it has remained for the Bureau of Standards to reverse that principle.

This problem came to the Bureau: Find a method of binding heavy steel plates together where it is impossible to use bolts because of the location of the plates and where the shearing power is too great for screws.

The scientists bored inch holes through the steel plates and prepared steel pins eight or ten inches long and one-thousandth of an inch or onefifteen hundredth of an inch larger in diameter than the holes. The pins were about ten inches long—the thickness of the two plates to be fastened together. Then, the plates being in position, the steel pins were immersed for ten minutes in a beaker of liquid air which was at a temperature of 2,000° F. below zero. This intense cold contracts the pins, so that they are easily driven into the holes, and upon their regaining their normal temperature the expansion gives an enormous grip, stronger than any rivets.

Another method, equally original, but a little less reliably effective, consists in making the steel pins slightly smaller in diameter than the holes into which they are to fit. Then along the axis of each pin is drilled a hole an eighth of an inch in diameter. This hole is filled with a high explosive known to soldiers as TNT. After the pin has been driven home, the TNT is set off, causing the pin to expand, and this expansion remains permanent, gripping the sides of the socket and holding like a rivet.

These methods—both new-are not available to ordinary workshops, un. equipped with liquid air or with the necessary knowledge of high explosives, but they will be found useful where old

“IV E began housekeeping, many years

W ago, with The Outlook, and very little furniture," writes a subscriber in Minnesota. "The Outlook has been periodically renewed, likewise the furniture—both necessary in our housekeeping. The weekly visits of The Outlook have been welcome because we have not agreed on all points with its editors. I think if we had you would have been tiresome and the visits would have been discontinued long ago. My aged father, a retired clergyman, lived with us before his death, and how he did disagree with The Outlook's theology! At the last he could read only with the aid of a magnifying-glass the size of a saucer; but he never missed a number. It was on these points of disagreement that he loved to dwell, to study, to 'sputter,' and to grow.”

How you can build your home at a saving of hundreds of dollars

T ERE is a brief excerpt from a long

letter from A. L. Davis, of North Loup, Nebraska, who, along with numerous others, writes to us in divided strain: “What America needs is a consistent, continuous foreign policy. And the fact that Harding is going ahead with the policies of Wilson, notwithstanding election promises, shows that beneath the insincerity of politics there is developing an American foreign policy, in spite of politics. Your bitter denunciations of the Wilson Administration, while approving so much of the same programme when directed by a Republican, has been one of the painful surprises to me. I had said I would stop my subscription, though I have been a subscriber for years. However, I am inclosing check for renewal. “With all your faults,' I cannot do without you."

• Come time back you asked for the

peregrinations of certain copies of The Outlook," writes Edna S. Knapp, of Caryville, Massachusetts. "Allen Eastman Cross, the hymn-writer, takes the paper in Milford, Massachusetts. He hands it to Mrs. Carl J. Dane, of Milford; then it comes to us here in Caryville. We read it, and add it to all our own periodicals and send them to a family of seven nine miles from the railway in the Vermont hills. The Bartletts read the copies threadbare; the mother keeps the papers in her own hands first and reads aloud the things the older children can appreciate at the evening story hour; then the papers really begin to circulate as she passes them on. I believe The Outlook is less of a magazine than a habit.
