C. PROSPERITY Rumors of Motor Market’s Bad Condition Refuted by Month’s Figures. Despite the recent collapse of the New York Stock Exchange with rumors of curtailment in purchasing power, figures made public yesterday show that more new and used automobiles were registered in the District of Columbia during the periods of the severest breaks than in corresponding periods of 1928. when stock trading was normal. The statistics were made public by the Washington Automotive Trade As sociation in denying recurrent rumors that the stock market situation had brought about a condition of depression in the Washington automotive trade. Not only were more new and used cars registered in the first 10 days of November and during the acute period of October, but it was pointed out there Is no foundation to rumors of numer- I oils cancellations of orders placed pre vious to or coincidental with the stock market break. Conditions Are Explained. The association explained the local conditions in the following statement: “Following the recent drastic reac tion on the New York Stock Exchange there have been recurrent rumors that curtailed purchasing power had brought about a condition of depression in the Washington automotive trade. These rumors are emphatically denied, and as the best possible corroboration of that denial the Washington Automotive Trade Association offers figures cover ing new and used car registrations in the District of Columbia for several significant periods. "The official record shows that for the period from July 1 to November 10. 1928. exactly 7,195 new cars were registered in the District of Columbia. During tlie corresponding period this year 9.067 cars were registered. That is an inc*'Ase of 1,872 units. During the same period in 1928 a total of 15.140 used cars were sold, while in 1929 that figure was raised to 17,203, ! an increase of 2.063 cars. Illuminating Figures. "Since the market situation was par ticularly acute during October and the first 10 days of November, figures tor I those periods are especially illuminat ing. The report shows that for Oc tober, last year, local registrations of new cars aggregated 1,489, which Is to be compared with 1,654 in October, 1929. The same month in 1928 wit nessed the registration of 3.159 used automobiles, while this year that figure Jumped to 3.332. "During the first 10 days of November, 1928, 436 new cars were registered here This is to be compared with a total of 468 during the first 10 days of the cur rent month. The identical situation is i to be noted in the used car division The figures stand at 871 for 1928 and 8-YEAR-OLD PREACHING PRODIGY TO DELIVER SERMOty AT DANVILLE Youthful Ministerial Aspirant Teaches Gospel to Furnace Attendants —Has Read Bible Twice. Special Dispatch to The Star. DANVILLE. Va., November 16 Eight-year-old Angus Douglas Winn, a tire salesman's son, has been invited to preach to the congregation of Jefferson Avenue Christian Church by Rev. P. P Hasselvander, pastor of the church. The child has betrayed a striking re ligious attitude for the past two years, which is ascribed by his mother to pre natal influence. She says she had de sired to'rear a child for the ministry. The religious attitude shows itself by constant readying of the Bible, which he has read twice; capacity to quote long excerpts from it. ability to offer prayer extemporaneously and a philosophy toward life so spiritual as to appeal unreal In a boy of his age. At the ago of 2 he played with the Bible, his mother says. He was sickly during early life, but is now in good health with an Intellectual face and a penetrating look. He plays base ball and is given to other sports. v Reporter Hears Sermon. Visited by a newspaper reported the boy preached a sermon lasting 15 min utes, in which he sought to show that 1.001 for the first 10 days of November, 1929. "These figures, the Washington Auto motive Trade Association believes are absolute and complete refutation of the rumors which have been circulated dur ing recent weeks. They point instead, to a condition of sound prosperity which has led to unanimous expression of confidence not only in the stability of the local automotive trade community but in the entire business structure. Natural But Illogical. "The Washington Automotive Trade Association recognizes that in a time of nervousness such as the stock market lias just gone through countless rumors find their way about. Their circulation cannot be halted because they are a natural. If illogical, outgrowth of an un certain state of mind. "However, their inaccuracy can be pointed out and pinned down by the publication of statistical data which thoroughly discredit them. It is with that purpose in mind, and with a desire that, the public be acquainted fully, (rankly and openly with the actual situ ation that tlie Washington Automotive Trade Association authorizes this state ment containing official figures. "One further feature of the recur rent rumors should be touched upon. That relates to cancellation of orders. It has been stated without foundation in fact, that local motor car dealers Speeialiete in Home Improvement Let Your Rent Pay for a.. Built” Metal 'i « GARAGE J NO CASH NEEDED! TERMS LIKE RENT!

J. ft 1* JHuE prophecies of the coming of Christ were contained in the Old Testament. The sermon is in phraseology far in advance of that of a boy of 8. but his mother says that the words are inspired by his own thought and that the sermon is not that of another committed to memorv. Ke made notei from the Bible, and thn* produced his own exhortation on th* subject, she says. He has shown ability to quote ver batim excerpts from sermons preached at church, and he is found at times in the boiler room of the apartment where the family lives preaching to the jan itors and furnace attendants. Boy Desires to Preach. Mrs. Winn said she believed that her son had a ‘ divine inspiration.” but the boy's own explanation is that he wishes 1 “to teach the people the way of God.” 1 Rev. Hasselvander fears that public j exploitation may have a detrimental es- j feet on the boy. He has expressed a dc- ■ sire to be a minister, and his parents are prepared to aid him in carrying out j that ambition. The date for the boy’s appearance In the pulpit has not been set. have been receiving numerous cancel lations of orders placed previous to or coincidental with the stock market i break. A survey does not bear out such J statements. Conditions in this respect j are auite normal, and scores of orders | at this moment are in process of J execution. “Thus, the Washington Automotive j Trade Association feels amply justified I in its attitude toward these rumors and in setting forth the cold statistics and j incontrovertible facts which constitute i the situation as it actually stands to day.” The steamer Prince Olav, formerly the ; British royal yacht Alexandria, will be placed in passenger service out of Miami.; Fla., to the Bahamas and West Indies this Winter.
