After reading your magazines, I always come back to an article written by Mr. Edward Hutsel in the July-August issue on Page 2. So I will pop off with a few words, then I may feel better.

Mr. Hutsel doesn't seem to agree with Mr. LeRoy Blaker at all.

1. LeRoy is right in every way about the Marsh and the Case Wolf valve gear. Mr. Hutsel also seems to think as do some other men that the Advance clear sounding exhaust indicates an economical and very powerful engine.

2. Again Mr. Hutsel doesn't agree with LeRoy about 'hooking up' on a traction engine. It appears Mr. Hutsel does not have a clear understanding between a governor and the purpose of hooking up on a traction engine.

3. He also says, a man that carries more pressure in his boiler than what the company recommends should have his head examined. The Case Co. built their boilers to stand half again their working pressure at the least. Sol say, between LeRoy's knowledge and a registered and licensed inspector, they know what pressure can safely be carried on a boiler, as they take into consideration the condition, and metal strength at its thinnest spot.
