EASLEY CONTINUES TO MAKE
The progressive little city of Easley
will not be downed. If at first she
does not su'eceed her motto is, "try
try again."
it will be remembered that a few
montihs ago the question 'of issuing
$50,000 for improvements and $30,000
for past indebtness wa4 voted upor
and carried by a sulstantlal majority,
but due to a technicallity the electior
was thrown out.
In the very near.fuwtdre thia same
question will be resubmitted to the
qualified voters of Easley, and every
thing seems to point to an even great
er victory for the bohde than on the
previous election.
OG of the -i pulatiohs of this bond
issue if carried is that property own
ers are to pay 50 per cent of the cost
of paving.
The bonds are to run for a period
of 40 years.
Should this bond issue carry, Eas
ley will probably have more paved
streets than any other city "of its size
in the state.

FORD SALES R.ECORD BROKEN
According to a statement issued by
the Ford Motor Company, deliveries
of Ford Cars and Trucks to retail
buyers during the ~i'onth of Novem
ber totalled 106,327. This is a new
high sales record that has never be
fore been approached by the company
at this season of the year and one
which stands out in marked contrast
to the November 1921 retail delivery
figures which totalled 'slightly o p:r
58,000 cars and trucks.
For eight consecutive months, bc
ginning with April 1st of this ye ar
retail deliveries have evceeded 100,
000 Ford Cars and Trucks each month,
the accunalated total for the hrst
eleven months of 1922 being app;rox
inately 1,200,000. While the ~Com
pany points out that it is not. nus ial
for Ford retail sales to exceed the
100,000 mark during the spring and
early summer months when the de

which business has held up through
out the balance of the year is without
precedent.
Credit for thes remarkable showing
is attributed by the Ford Motor Con

which havc lately been made on Ford
Cars and particularly to thq ew low

Ford dealers will be unable to ac.
cumulate an adequate stock of cars
during the winter months for delivery
next spring.
In the opinion of the Ford Motor
Company, November sales are an in
dication that many prospective pur
chasers, realizing the exceptional
value nowv being offered in Ford cars,
are beginnig to anticipate an unusuai

it is pointed out that the Radily in

Accordingly, the F'ord sales Organ
