Which of the following most accurately describes the problem?

• After the discussion the meeting adjourned to the Embankment to inspect, the machines there

assembled. Nineteen vehicles in 411 had been got together. Although this is not a great number, it is" perhaps not, so bad considering the fact that it is wartime. Not all of these machines were directly interesting to coininertial-vehicle users, as there were several touring cars and electric broughams on view. In order of size we might refer to a 9-cut. van by the General Vehicle Co., Ltd. ; this machine was fitted with Ironclad-Exide battery and was worm. driven. A cimple of 10-cwt. vans Were on view ; one an Opel with Hart battery, chain-driven, the other a Walker covered 'delivery Yin exhibited by Harrods,' fitted with an Edison battery and driven by: spur gear on the rear wheels. • There was an Anderson one.=tonner and a Baker of the

same size. The latter was fitted with Ironclad-EXide cells and was chain driven.

Perhaps the most 'interesting exhibits were three heavyweight machines. one, a twO-ton Edison with a tinning body, the 'mechanism for c62 which was on the new patented Edison principle. There was also an Edison omnibus chassis, and a 3-ton General Vehicle Co.'s chassis. The Edison machines are, of course, fitted with Edison cells,

the General Vehicle Co.'s machines with Ironclad-Exide.

Although, as has been said, the parade was not of any.considecable extent, it was fairly representative of the -various Modela obtainable.
