Henry Ford announced here yes
terday.
In announcing the reduction,
which places the price considerably
below prewar levels. Ford said he
had not Intended revealihg it until
today.
"But I'll give you a one-day beat
on Edsel," he ilUd. "I haven't the
exact figures, but Edsel will give
them out in Detroit. It isn't going
to be much, as we have the price
down pretty low now."
Ford was *, eatly interested in

have an annual production of
10.000."
