That's just what imitation parts are when they becohie a part of your Ford car.
They look strong enough, but the metal isn't there the strong, durable Vanadium
steel that goes into the Ford chassis and every Ford part. Ford parts are especially
cast and heat-treated, each according to its use. Some require a hard, flint-like wear
ing surface, others need resiliency, and some need just "toughness." ,^v"
Ford metallurgists have been studying these problems for sixteen years and know
just how each unit should be made to endure a maximum of wear and tear. They
know that best results can be obtained only by the use of special formulas for differ
ent parts, and that honest. Ford parts wear from thirty-five to one-hundred per cent
longer than counterfeits.
We carry complete assortments of genuine Ford parts for both passenger cars and
trucks. And our garage is equipped to give careful, prompt Ford service from mi
nor adjustments to complete overhauls. Drive in, it's better to be safe than sorry.

THE LABOR PARTIES.
By WALTER THOMAS MILLS, M. A.
(Author of "Democracy or Despotism")
Article Number IV. V'u.
Note.— This is one of-a'series of seven'
articles on 0ie Labor parties.- The series
covers 'The Occasion for Their Exist
ence," "Methods of Organization,"
"Campaign Methods," "Selection of
Candidates,'' "Carrying on the Govern
ment," "Ttyeir Achievements When in
Qfiice," sm4 "What of tite Future for
Labor Parties." The illustrations will
be ta^en from any places where organiza
tions of labor have entered the field of
After""a"political party has agreed
upon the measures' for which it will
make battle at the ballot box, and has
selected its candidates to enact and to,
administer its program, 'there* comes
next in order the campaign which is
to secure the election of its candidates
and the carrying out of its proposals.
In order to accomplish this result,
a majority of all the voters in any
given district, or In a state, or in the
nation at large, must be secured., They
must be convinced, not only of the
merits of the measures proposed, but*
of this very great and immediate im
portance and that they can be adopted.
f? This conviction must be so sincere
and so controlling as to bring to the
ballot box, not only a.bare majority,
but a majority so large that irregu
larities, mistakes in counting, or even
the vicious falsification of election re
turns-can not rob the party, of the
fruits of its victory.
f\ THE USUAL WAY.
U.To achieve' success ordinarily polit
ical parties resort to scandalous per
sonalities, to the misstatement of the
real issues, to an effort to confuse ~the
public mind? to appeal to prejudice, .to
arouse suspicion, to take advantage of
race jealousies, to open up social
wounds long healed and which ought
to be forgotten. Such methods have
proven successful in the warfare be
tween political parties where neither
party to. the controversy had in view
a serious and important public pur
pose of any sort. Such campaign tac
tics may be 'excusable for political- or
ganizations created for the purpose of
serving great private interests by. di
verting attention froni needed reforms
and by persuading the public that, as
bad as things are, they might be
,. In this way the public-mind, acting
on the desire not to turn over the pub
lic powers to those who may betray
the public good, is led to decide to
leave the public powers in the posses
sion of those who already have been
and are doing, and will" continie to do,
the-greatest public wrongsv-^For fear
of a future evil, they are led to vote
gi*eatly improve the conditions under
which men toil, the rewards which
they receive for their labor,, or for the
products of their labor, and in the end.
make an end of all industrial servi-'
tude. These: measures must be of such
a nature as will increase the incomes!
of useful people and at the same time
lower the costs of living until the
prices which the workers receive for]
their labor, or for their products, will!
be sufficient to buy back out of the I
market all the wealth created byj
them. _.».''-* \'fs\
An effective campaign for the
Labor party must make these meas-j
utes clear, must make the multitude
understand their importance^, must
make the vast*majority jf voters com
prehend that these things really can
be accomplished and that a political
party composed of the useful people,
and set to do .these things, can actual
ly dd them.. With such a program and
such a campaign the old style of poli
tics has little to do. The old style
.campaigner can neither understand,
nor is he qualified to have any effec
tive part in, such a program, i^xv-'**
-r/THE WAY TO W I N
If the people are to be reached ef
fectively for such a purpose, the only
wajs of reaching them are, first,
through a house-to-house canvas:
.second, through the distribution of
literature third, through the public
press, and, fourth, by public meetings.
All of these things have been ef
fectively cafried out in the various
Labor party campaigns which- 'have
been successfully undertaken. *The
"British Labor party fills all of the
homes* and streets and billboards with
printed matter containing short, point
ed, stirring paragraphs, accompanied
by cartoons, and does this over and
over during the period' that such a
campaign usually covers. It organizes
whole armies of canvassers who go
patiently from bouse to house solicit
ing co-operation, explaining the pro
gram, snowing why ..these measures
will help and fairly begging for co
The regular labor press of the trade
unions is supplemented by a Labor
party press widely read.' The public
meetings are advertised by personal
solicitation, by- the distribution of
dodgers, by great billboard announce-*
ments and by announcements 'through
all of the trade unions and other or
ganizations affiliated with the move-]
ment. Long lists of names are pre
pared and these 'are checked and re
checked by committeemen thoroughly
competent and patiently going over
the work.again and again, and long
lists of najnes of those known to be
opposed, known to be doubtful, or not
known at all, are passed on to regular
canvassers to follow them up to the
very day of the election. The trade
unions ajid the co-operative societies,
of which the British Labor party is so
largely composed, spare no pains to
make all of their members eligible as
voters, to see that all are informed,
and to see that all go to the ballot box.

THE COST OF VICTORY.
If there is to be a national Labor
party in the United States* this meth
of campaign is of mosf'serious con
cern. It hat not .nfrevaentl? faeen the
case that labor candidates have been
named, a series of massmeetings have
been held« and results expected, as if
ishis were all that needed Ho be done.
The Labor parties/ in most countries
and the Nonpartisan league in this
•country have wisely and deliberately
refused to nominate candidates and
attempt their election until after their
own organization had developed suffi
cient strength to be able to finance
and to maintain the sort of campaign
that is here described.
The farmers who want a national
Labor party must put a million and a
half members into the Nonpartisan
league first, and then, if need be, talk
about/ the party afterwards. The
trade unionists who are speaking of
an independent party must under
stand the vast expenditures which
will be involve! and the almost
endles3 tasks necessary through the
printed page, the personal canvass,
the current press and the public
meetings, to make effective their
presence at the ballot box.
