The Plant' Turned Out One-
third of Detroit's Entire
Output in 1911. .
"Something of the wonderful frovrth
of the Ford Motor Company, of Detroit,
and Its tremendous volume of business
during the present year can be gleaned
from a comparison made with the last
official government census Just pub
lished," said Claude Miller, of Miller
Druthers. Ford, agents hepc.
"in this census, which shows Detroit to
be the sixth largest manufacturing
center of the country, tho value of the
automobiles built -In this city leads all
other products. The value of the au
tomobiles manufactured during that
year Is given In the census as IM.Wfl.pOO.
"This year the. 'business of the Ford
Motor Company alone amounted to more
than 150,000,000. but 19.000.000,. less than
the value of the entire output of De
troit In 1909. Of course, since, the cen
sus was taken In -1(09, the automobile
business In Detroit has Increased by
en "a and bounds. .
"Drawlnr a comnarlaon In another
way, the total value of the product of
Detroit factories of every kind In 1909
Is given by the census as )25!.Mo.OOO.
but five times larger than the Ford
business alone this year,
"It Is estimated from figures recent
ly compiled by the Detroit Hoard of
Commerce, that the automobile fac
tories In the city turned out a total
product of J155.000.000 last year. This
was but three times the Ford product
"While the Board of; Commerce has no
definite figures showing the value of
the 112 output. It la estimated by that
lodv the total will crowd cloe upon
SIOO.OOO.OOO. If, when the figures are In,
this estimate proves correct, then one
factory, the gigantic Ford plant, will
have had one-fourth of. this figure to
Its credit." .-
the Exact Location
of Your Office
When You Tell
Them It Is In
The name causes no confusion. You have an office
in the. Munsey Building no one will need to ask you
where the Munsey Building is and puzzle whether that is the
building on G street. or that other banking or trust sounding
building which it always suggests on F street or on New York
The name impresses oneJmuch the same as the fact that
you sail for Europe on the Lushania or put up at the Waldorf
or Ritz when you are -in New York. It instantly classes you.
The offices are splendid. They are comfortabl extractive,
light and airy. They are kept clean. The new elevator service
just installed has no peer in Washington. The bujlding is well
ventilated, and at night it's well lighted. It's warm in winter,
and yet not too warm, and it's the coolest office structure in
.the entire city during the summer.
' For almost every sort of business purpose the Munsey
Building is remarkable for its central location.
You'll find your office in the Munsey Buil cling in every
way solidly satisfactory.

tomobile laws and regulations, all of
which have been persistently advocated
by the Touring1 Club of America.
Not alone are these subjects of vital
Interest to motor car owners., but they
concern every other road ser, and, es
pecially the farmer, who Is now one of
the ardent advocates of the automobile
and Is no longer antagonistic to the
movement fori good roads. In every
State where elections are to be held
automoblllsts and road users are urged
by the Touring club to Insist upon the
recognition from the various candi
dates aa to their attitude on these
Important subjects; not only from those
seeking legislative positions, , but for
every State office up to and Including
