I too, want to thank Arlene for sharing this resource but I do agree that it is challenging to navigate. I was able to get to enlarge short to medium size articles by clicking directly on the hi-lited pink "hit" area as opposed to clicking on the magnifying glass icon. Since I was clipping articles to save to my computer, when the words were readable I would click on the clip icon which is the last icon on the toolbar. Then I could draw a box around the article. Another window pops opens and I could right-click in that window and do a "Save Image As" on the menu. I know it's a lot of steps and I was looking for a more efficient process.
I was looking for any mention of the 1913 patent that chaffeur, John H. Cebolt, received for non-puncturable tires but no luck so far. Although there are many social column mentions of John, his wife Ada and sister-in-law Mary Cebolt. Of course, I did get many hits on Lionel and Gladys Hampton and Gary real estate developer Andrew Means. The most interesting article on the Hamptons, to me, was one mentioning the McMurray family of Indianapolis who Lionel discusses in detail in his auto-biography and identifies them as he and Gladys' only non-musical friends.
