SET B! BUICK
Buick of 1923 Is Better Car
Says President in Inter
view in 'Motor'
"Give me the aces and you keep
the jacks," is the keynote declara
tion in an interesting interview with
President Harry H. Bassett, of the
Buick Motor Company, appearing in
the December number of Motor Mag
azine. When Mr. Bassett was asked by
the interviewer, V. A. P. John, to
explain, the great achievement of
Buick in breaking this Fall its own
pace-making production records, . Mr.
Bassett shot this significant remark:
"We all work together in really
close relation without politics and
job pride. If a subordinate in some
department has a nut to crack and
his chief happens to be away, 'he
comes right in here and we do our
best to crack the nut. And his
chief isn't piqued because someone
has gone over his head. That's how
we do it. It's the only way it could
be done. A genius workinjg along
other lines could not . succeed in
managing the Buick plant, nor any
or near as large."
Among the many complimentary
observations made by Mr. John in
his article is the following:
"It would be folly to write anything
else than that Mr. Bassett stepped
into the shoes of an exceedingly able
man one of the greatest "produc
tion getters' the industry has ever
known.- And it would be equal fol
ly not to write that he not only
filled the shoes but filled them over
flowing, if I may be permitted to
Btretch a point in my metaphor. For
during the three and one-half years
that have passed since Buick af
fairs .were placed in Mr. Bassett's
hands, the company's annual . output
has been jumped from 120,000 cars
a year to about 1S5.000 a year in
the face of extraordinary bitter com
petition from strong "independents"
manufacturing excellent cars of ap
proximately the jame price. And I

CLAIM VERDE CENTRAL ORE BODY
IS GETTING RICHER; JEROME IS
OPTIMISTIC OVER NEWEST STRIKE
(Verde Copper News)
JEROME, Dec. 30. Contrary to all
expectations and predictions, even of
the most sanguine, the Verde Central
ore body continues to grow stronger
and richer the further it is followed
believe that not even the most narrow-minded
reader will disagree with
me when I write that the quality
and appearance of Buick models was
appreciably heightened and refined
during the same time. I do cot im
ply that the Buick of three years
ago was not a good car. I merely
mean that the Buick of 192S is a bet
ter car built of better materials
under more exacting conditions,
given a more effective symetry and
sold for a lot less money! Even if
Buick production still remained at
120,000 a year, that with improve
ments of quality and appearance
would be an achievement of con

The drift is now 217 feet into the
ore and the copper content continues
to increase. Yesterday's assay of an
average sample from the face showed
seven per cent of the red metal.
Sometimes quartz Is associated
with the schist, sometimes not. Its
presence does not seem to affect the
copper content one way or the other.
The schist appears to be growing

resemblance becomes more and more
striking as the days go by.

Latest Engine Invented in
France Is Claimed to Be
Ideal Motive Power
Will the Diesel engine finally be
adapted to replace the spark ignition
engine now used to propel automo
This question, recurrent almost an
nually since the invention of the auto
mobile, faces its last repetition with
the announcement from Paris of the
invention of a semi-Diesel type of en
gine for motor cars..
. At the very beginning of the auto
mobile industry, use of a Diesel en
gine was attempted on automobiles.
But, although used for stationary pur
poses and in submarines, the engine
would not work well in a moving, vi
.The engine, with spark ignition,
that has replaced the Diesel, however
uses up costly gasoline, while the air
compression engine feeds on a cheap,
low grade of oil. A combination of
the good in both of these engines,
therefore, would make an ideal power
plant for automobiles.
This -ideal or the nearest to it
French automotive engineers believe
is finally attained in the semi-Diesel
automobile engine tested recently on
a trip between Paris and Bordeaux.
The engine, according to reports,
burns low-grade oil which costs 12
cents a gallon in France, as compared
with 56 cents for gasoline. At the
same time it retains the advantages
o fthe spark-ignition engine now in
resides, its inventors say the semi
Diesel costs less for upkeep and is
simpler and therefore cheaper to
make than the present type. Experi

Will Sink Deeper
Actual preparations have started
toward sinking the shaft to the 1000
foot level. Down to the 800 the shaft
is only a skipway and manway. Be

of additional sinking will be done with
all possible speed. -
Ultimately the main working shaft
of the Verde Central will probably be
a vertical shaft further up the hill
to tha southwest of the present 6haft.
A site has already been tentatively
chosen. This plan, however, may be

WRIGLEY BETS TEN MILLIONS
THAT PEOPLE WILL CHEW MORE

William Wrigley, Jr., is betting
$10,000,000 on that proposition.
"Bill" Wrigley is one of the
greatest of chewing gum manufac
turers. He used to work for $3
a week; now he's called the
"chewing gum king."
The Wrigley interests will spend
around $10,000,000 in 1923 on an
