Th. first year there were only six trucks butlt and sold by the Betz Motor Truck Company. The owners of these six cars were so well pleased however, that they 'brought six more, and so the demand grow until this year e!g-hty-flve trucks have been built and sold and there are six unfilled orders. At first the company built only two and a half ton trucks, but now they are turning out a ton and a half truck which Is very popular. They are bidding "on an order of twenty-five passenger busses and hare other business In alpht that will Increase their output. Betz and Helwls with other ex pert mechanics build each truck. They maintain a factory service for all owners which proves a great saving to the owner. Their truck Is a success and there Is every reason to believe that the young men will realize their ambi tion and gradually build up In Ham mond a good sized automobile truck factory. PER S HINGS ANNUA L WW T WASHINGTON'. Dec. 8. Develop ment of the air service to a point where It would be capable of offen sive application, more interest in "tanks" and the motorizing of ar tillery transport were the chief recommendations made by General John J. Pershing, chief of staff of the army, In his annual report to day. As the Influence of air power will become increasingly great in the next few years. General Tershlng believes the air service "which we develop should be capable of of fensive application." "This does not mean," his report stated, "that we must Immediately build an air service that could take the offensive against any great power or group cf powers. It does mean, however, we should have a force that can take the Immediate defensive and that can, during a reasonable period of operating, ex pand to tho strength required fur an offensvie." As one of the foremost leaders in the tractor industry, General Persh ing believes the United States can not neglect , tho development of tanks. Development of types which could be put out In quantity production without undue loss of time was urg ed by General Pershing. "Horse drawn forms of artillery transport must eventually give way in large measure In the army, as they are yielding In industry to motorized forms." said General Pershing in urging appropriation of funds to carry on experiments. Reduction of the army t 125.000 enlisted men and JII.OOO officers is a cut "too much for safety," . Gen eral Pershinr said. Adding that at U. S.
