AMERICA Bankers Quick to Re pond to Needs of Traders STEAMERS ARE BADLY NEEDED Plans for Project To Be Success Is In dication One of the questions which are asked when plana for the develop ment of South American trade are under conalderstlon, 1* why If la not poaalbie for bualnesa men front the United State* to fro Into *he Ijuln- American market and simply sell their products without discussing the matter with hankers Why should not Americans sell in Argen tina and Chile In the same way as they do here? Why should there be so much fussing about "financing trade*"’ The answer Is that the South American method of doing business Is entirely different from the methods that nre followed In the United States. Mere most business men pay their hills on the firs* of the month. In South America, how ever. there Is universal Insistence upon 60 and JKPday credits. One of the biggest problems being consider ed by the International high com mission, now meeting in Buenos Aires, *l* to find some wav whereby 60 to fui-day credits may be obtain ed and increased steamship service with the United States Inaugurated Financing Che trade of the United States business men with South American merchants, however, la the most important phase in the present commercial relations be tween North and South Amerh a.

Homo Office—733 Maje*tlc Bldg. Largest Industrial Exhibit AUTO PARTS In Country Is Maintained rinu nnnu/o By the Board of Commerce rlnm unUTTO During the last year the l>etr# Board of Commerce has organized and put Into operation a compre hensive Industrial welfare bureau, the object of which Is to promote factor)’ betterment, not only In me chanical efficiency, but In Improv lng the physical, m* utal. social and economic conditions of the em ployes. Work of the bureau, after six months' trial, has met with con siderable success, proving the value of such an organization. The most spectacular _leature of the bureau Is a permanent exhibi tion, showing the work being done In all parts of the country In bet tering Industrial relations. The ser vices of an expert were obtained In organizing this exhibit, which Is the largest of Its kind In the United States and conservatively valued at $50,000. The exhibit was thrown open to the public last February, and In the weeks that fllllowetk hun dreds of people interested In indus trial work Inspected It. Welfare managers from all parts of the conn try have examined the exhibß since that time. Among the feature displays Is one by the Fierce-Arrow Motor Car Cos., which shows the huge dining room and splendid equipment maintained for Its employes and the elaborate wash rooms where at one time more needed. Had It not been for the fact that the United States plaeed at the disposal of the cc mmlttee of American business men the cruiser Cleveland If would have l>een Im possible for that committee to visit all the countries In the time grant ed. It would have taken from six to eight months While this ?hov * the need for better steamship fadlt ties, the South and Central Ameri can republics are chiefly concerned about the methods which will be adopted by the United States to finance the new trade with I-Atln- Amertra This financing has always been done by l/mdon, but it must now bo done by the L T nitcd States, if this country Is to replace Great Britain In America. The Cen tral American republics are keenly alive to the possibility t>f opening new financial connections necessary to the expansion of their vast nat ural resources. They want a mar ket In the United States for their responsible national, state and In dustrial bonds. We cannot look for a solution until at least part of the financing 1n foreign countries D cared for with American capital.” Fortunately the bankers of the United States ere fully alive to the needs of the situation. They are responding Intelligently to the re quirements of American business men. who are combining for the trade of South and Central America. With the government taking an ac tive Interest and the bankers show lng such Initiative, there should be little doubt of the ultimate success of the movement for a larger share of the South American trade American leader. SAYS NEAL CURE MADE HIM MAN Business Man Declares That Drinking Is Impulse At First, Then Craving "There Is * psychology of drink ing—it state of mind that results from drinking ns a habit." said N. W. Meyer, manager of the ivtmlt Neal institute, recently. "This state of mind prompts s man to drink even when he doesn't want liquor. It Is as much a part of the disease of alcoholism as the condition of the digestive organs and the blood. "To Illustrate this point, let mo rglre you the exi>erlence of a busi ness man Just as he told It to me: "‘I realised, * said the man. 'that when the mind was affected, I felt that I had to have a drink whether I wanted It or not. The desire to drink la sometimes an Impulse, rath er than a craving. The craving Is physical—the Impulse is mental. Klther one Is a burden—both togeth er a combination that every hahltnal drinker suceutnbe to. Often the men tal Impulse, without the physical craving, leads to the first drink — and the first drink almost Invariably starts the craving that Is Irresisti ble. That Is what happened to me and It Is to the Neal treatment that I owe my present health and posi tion. For every ounce of good that liquor ever did It haa done a mil lion pound* of harm.’" Printing—(kr plain neat kind—that W rAghl—Jeh Dept.— DETROIT TIMES than ;:o0 men may clean up for lunch.

LOTS THAT COST $3,000 NOW THAT MUCH PER FOOT In the clearing away of the site at and Shelby st., to make ready for the construction of the new’ building for the Sweeney- Huston Cos, one of TVtrolt’s land marks passes from view. For the last few years, due to the buildings erected around it. the roof w’as all that could be seen of the original building, which was erected for a church house by the .Congregation al Unitarian church society In 1853. At the time the two corner lota were purchased by the church, the price paid was $3,000, a price wfhtch now only approximates the value per foot of frontage of the property. The Sweeney Huston Cos. will use six floors of the new' building for billiards and howling alleys, while the ground floor will be divided for store purposes.

W. Murray Mfg. Cos. In creases Capital Stock From $200,000 to $500,000 The J. W. Murray Manufacturing Cos., makers of auto parts, has Just received a certificate of Increase of capital stock from $200,000 to $500,- 000. Os the new stock $250,000 has been subscribed, the greater portion of which will be paid in by the dec laration of a 100 per cent stock divi dend, w’hlle the balance will be taken up by the directors. To properly care for Its increased business the concern has also In vested In three and a half acres of property and a modem factory building at a cost of $175,000. This will serve to about double Its ca pacity, aa all the original plants will continue to be operated. The combined floor space will be 150.000 square feet. The company’s present site covers an area of about one and one-half acres. J. W. Murray started three years ago with moderate capital, and a force of but 15 men. The company now employes 400. This growth and the company’s reputation for atten tion to orders and delivery, are due to the generous plan of co-operation and profit-sharing Murray adopted from the very start of his manufac turing career. Mr. Murray began to manufac ture on hla own capital, but three of those associated with him were given stock at the beginning. At the end of the first year three more were taken in, and when the second year came to a close six more were added to the list of stockholders. This year still more of the employes are to be given stock. All employes who are not stockholders are par takers in a profit-sharing plan, based upon a percentage of the company’s profits divided semi-an nually. The officers of (he company are: J. W. Murrny, president and general manager; Ixjuls G. Schwarz, vice president; J. R. Murray, secretary, treasurer and production manager; Wm. Rlnnck and Frank J. Schwarz, directors.
