NEW FORD AUTO TO GENERATE
ITS OWN ELECTRICITY
Seattle, Wash., Sept 29. "I ex
pect by Christmas to put on the mar
ket an electric auto that will gen
crate its own ecelrticity-at a moder
This was the statement of Henry
Ford, millionaire auto manufacturer
and pacifist, during a recen: visit to
Seattle, and the Pacific coast. He
added: "I am not worried about tne
price of gas."
Continuing Ford said:
"It is my ambition to supply every
workman in the U. S. with an auto
mobile one he can buy without
sacrifice and operate without denial
"The reason the Ford Motor Co.
does not sell automobiles for less
than the present price," he explained,
"is that the demand would greatly
exceed tne supply.
"Today the factory is 200-.000 or
ders behind," he elucidated. "When
facilities for turning out cars in
creases there is a possibility that the
price will decrease."
Results in the past year' of the
Tord profit-sharing plan, he asserted,
had more than justified the course
under which, every employe gets $5
minimum a day and; a share in the
growth of the business.
"The earnings of the company last
year were $60,000,000," Ford stated.
"Every man, being interested in the
success of the concern, works with
all his heart and soul. Results are
"Last year's earnings will be de
voted to increasing the working
force this year a!nd the same pro

MY ONE BEST REASON FOR
VOTING FOR WILSON
By Ellis Parker Butler
(Author of "Pigs Is Pigs," etc.)
I am for Woodrow Wilson because
he has instituted and carried through
reforms that were necessary to the
successful financial, mercantile and
governmental future of America.
The federal reserve bill and his Mex
ican policy are, .in themselves, suffi
cient reasons for his re-election. Taf t
left both -questions in a muddle, one
a constant domestic menace and the
other a constant international me
nace. Woodrow Wilson did more during
the very first year of his administra
tion than other presidents had done
in 12 years. Other presidents, and
the senators, talked and sidestepped.
Wilson acted. He acted promptly.
He acted fearlessly. He acted from
the dictation of a clear, ken-think-ing
brain and so he continues to act
After the years ofsonorously empty
catch-jhrase government and double
faced toadying to over-fed interests
the same business foresight and
clean, surgical incision of Wilson in
matters or great public policy delight
me. For years the cry has" been:
"We know what is the matter, but
who dares do anything?" The an
swer is: "Woodrow Wilson."
