Mr. Edscl.B'. Ford, Presiilent of the Ford' Motor Coinpniiy,
gives out the following statement: ' '
"The price of the F0RDS02J Tractor has been reduced
from .?7!)0.00 to ?l25.00, effective immediately. k r
This price change has been made possible through lower
costs of materials and the fact that we'nre now located in our
new Tractor Plant with greatly increased economic manufac
turing facilities in immediate connection with our foundry and
machine shops and large blast furnaces where iron is pured
directly from the ore, giving us maximum efficiency with the
. power to reduce cost of production, and down comes the price
in-line with our policy to market our products at the lowest
possible figure without in any way affecting our high standard j
We "are particularly pleased in being able to bring about
this big reduction in price at this time because the farmer
needs all the help we can give him and this big cut in price
will be the means of placing a valuable power unit within the
reach of practically every one of them, not to mention indust
rial and commercial concerns which likewise have benefitted
through its use and are already .realizing, to a much greater ,
extent, its value as a power and hauling unit. But particular
ly has the FOKDSON Tractor proved a most valuable factor in
i the saving of farm labor, at the same time increasing the per
acre crop, yield as wcll-us- making possible a utilization of pre
viouslyuncultivated land, to say nothing of removing no end of
There is no question that the tise of machine power on the
farm is the greatest advancement made in the development of
agriculture, not only in money saving and money making re
sults, as well as raising the standards of living on the farm to
a much higher level, but because of its proved value in making
every type of land more productive, and consequently our.
desire toplacethe FOIJDSON within the reach of all. r
THERE ;S NO CHANGE IN THE PRESENT FORD
CAR AND TRUCK PRICES,' whiclr are already at the lowest
possible figure and .now with rock b'ottom reached on the
tractor price a further -reduction in price of either the Car,
Truck or Tractor is out of the question; in fact, the big price
cuts have been made in anticipation of continuous maximum
production and increases may be necessary before long, if. a
large volunie.of new, business is not obtained. Therefore, pres
ent prices of Ford products cannot be guaranteed against
possible increases." ' .

BASKET BALL AT
THE LIHUE ARMORY
Good basket ball, with few fouls
and protty team work characterized
tho games In tho LIhue armory Friday
night; whon'a double header was play
Tho first, match was between the
High School and tho Benedicts in
probably the bost game that has yet
been played. The High School boys
may not think so, however, as they
were worsted this time by the Bene
dicts In about the same fashion as
they handed the first defeat over in
a previous game with the same oppon
ents. The students were given few
good chances to Bhoot goal, so closely
were they guarded by tho postmaster
and the wireless operator. Tho other
members of the business men's outfit
meanwhile played a consistent offen
sive and kept a good, safe margin
behind them. The score was 32-22
in the Benedicts' favor.
Who fails to see the rubber game
between these close rivals will prob
ably miss the real excitement of the
The second gamo on Friday even
ing brought the Bachelors and the
Merchants face to face. The Bach
olors, unhampered with family cares,
skipped blithely about the floor as
though It were really good fun. The
Merchants, played more laboriously,
but with hope urging them ever on
ward so that only the most reckless
would risk their good judgment on
the results of the first half.
But after Ave minutes recess the
Bachelors assumed a more threaten
ing mien and finally outdistanced tho
commercial dealers by tho declslvo
score of 42-15.
The present standing of the teams
are as follows: Benedicts, won 4, lost
1; High School, won 3, loBt 2; Bach
elors, won 3, lost 2; Merchants, won
0, lost 6.
