Mr. Ford held Snancial interests re
spo(ble br the industrial tie-up. de
a aring the "money barons" were man
tpuliting the labor unions and the pub
?s officials, state and pational, were im
potent in the crisis.
The strikes would end, he contin
sed. "when the majority of the people
are osld sad hungry enough to re
sort to drastic action."
"Continuance of these disturbances
tw the eoonomic life of tlie nation is
due simply to the greed and avarice
of Wall Street," Mr. Ford asserted.
adding that these interests "dominat
ad the railpeads. coal mines and public
utilities of the country."
The deadlock in strike negotiations
Indicated, he dec'l-ared, the existence
of a "plot to un.load the demoralized
and rundown railroads on the gover
ment at their own price and to inul-h
the people through excessive prices.*
Employes of the Ford Motor com
pany throughout the country to he
without jobs after September 1, will
number about 105.000.
In aldition several hundred thous
and other workers employed in the
industries furnishing materials for the
Ford plants will be affected.
Henry Ford gave these figures !n
anouncing that his three big mo or
plants located in D'etroit suburbs and
his assemblying plants throughout the
aountry would be closed on that date.
Ibeause of the coal shortage.
The announcement was the most
severe blow that industrial Detroit
has sustained since the industrial do
preeost of two years ago. It means,
secordiag to MrN Ford. that 75.000 men
employed in the Highland Park. River
Roge and Dearborn plants of the
eempany her will be without work.
irtWthousand others are now work
fag in the 'varloWassembling plants
smattered throughout the country also
iwill be thrown ogt of employment.
How long the machinery in the
Ford plants is to be stilled will de
pend entirely upon the coal supply of
the future. the Deroit manufacturer
said. The statement issued by Mr.
Ford proposing the shutdown was th'.

;ULi~E~ R~IJLIS MEET
Vepresentative Crowd From Fairfield,
York and Chester Hold Annual
Chester.--The fifth annual meeting
)f the Chester-Fa.ifleld-York Guern
,ey Breeders' asaociation was held
t the Brice Farm. which is owned
Lv Robert B. Caidwell, about eight
miles from Chester. It was attended
1y a representative crowd, from the
three counties. The meeting of the
association was an all-day affair and
offered a splendid opportunity for th.:
members of the association and for
the interested vis'tors to get together
for a real day's outing. A construc
tive program was enjoyed.
A feature probably of most interest
was the showing of moving picture
films, including views of some of the
world's greatest dairying and other
scenes that will be of interest to the
members of the association.
At the meeting there were present
a number of most prominent and suc
cessful thoroughbred cattle fanciers
of South Carolina and there were a
number ~6f practical talks.
Unusual interest was attached to
the meeting because of the fact that
there is greatly increased interest in
dairy work in general and.Guernsey
cattle in particular by the new cream
ery at Chester. It was a showing that
the dairy work and the Guernsey cow
are a decided boon in Chester, Fair
field and York counties and much
good is expected to result from the

the time to icide what entainers
will be used to hold sorghum syrups
so'that these may be obtained before
the syrup making season begins.
If syrup is made only for home
use, fruit jars, jugs, kegs and barrels
my be used as containers. The
only requirements are that these be'
absolutely clean and tight. The near
er air-tight they are the better the
syrup will keep. They must be thoro
ly cleaned andl sterilized with boil
ing water just before the syru5 is
put in them. In using fruit jars
and jugs one should be careful to'
heat them gradlually before the hotJ
syrup is put in.
Sealed gallon and half-gallon tins
should be usedl for any syrup that is
to be placed on the market. Syrup
is easier to handle, easier to sell, and
brings a better price put up in this
manner, andl if it is good syrup, it will
keep indefinitely. The increase in
price obtained will more -than offset
the price of the tins.
The gallon tin containers will cost
around 12 cents each. They may be
obtained through a local hardware
dealer or by co-operative orders
through the county agent if enough
farmers wish to use then).
