Note from the Sterling Motor Truck Company:


The Milwaukee Public Works are operating 54 Sterling trucks that are equipped with the Waukesha "DU" or the "EU" engine.

On the Ohio River the "EU" engines are being used for propelling sand barges and also for running sand pumps. The owner says they only use half the gasoline the single cylinder Fairbanks Morse engine did.
