chased the majority of the stock of
the Kveritt-Metzger -Flanders, or T. M.
V. automobile manufacturing company
of Detroit, for the purpose of com
bining It with the Studebaker com
pany. The combination of these two com
panies, it was pointed out, would, with
the General Motors Company as the
unit for the Middle West and thi
United Motors Company as the unit
for the East, lend Itself readily to any
larger combination that might be con
templated. It is in this way, Wall street re
called, that Mr. Morgan forms all his
great industrial combinations. First
lie forms independent concerns into
units and then amalgamates these
units into one big entity.
it is intimated that within a few
years the automobile manufacturing
business of the country will be as com
pletely monopolized as the Standard
Oil Company is, if not more so.
These units were suggested ns like
