NO SWIVEL CHAIR FOR FORD’S SON BTAYED AT HOME DURING WAR TO HELP IN PLANT—REFUBED TO TAKE UNIFORM. FATHER WAS RESPONSIBLE Declares He Told Edsel That War Work In Factory Needed Him— Would Not Accept Safety First Commission. Mt. Clemens, Mich. —Henry Ford, during the last hour of his seven days on the witness stand, took occasion to claim full reponsibillty for his son, Edsel Ford’s, claim for exemption from the selective draft. "He wanted to enlist,” said Mr. Ford, "but I told him that he could do more good where he was. He was offered several commis sions which would have permitted him to wear a uniform and stay right in the factory, but he wouldn’t accept them.” Having made their decision, it was shown, both Mr. Ford and his son re fused to camouflage it behind a swivel chair commission carrying boots and spurs. This subject, the introduction of which has been awaited ever since the trial opened, did not develop along the lines which had been generally ex pected. Mr. Ford’s inclination to shoulder full responsibility, his state ment that bis son was absolutely essential to the war work being done In the factory and his revelation of the fact that Edsel Ford turned down several offers of a commission, dis armed criticism. The charges, spread during a political campaign, and re cently repeated on the floor of the United States senate, to the effect that the young president of the Ford Motor company had shirked his duty were so fully refuted that Tribune counsel did not pursue the polnL It was the first time that a full ex planation of the facts in connection with Edsel Ford’s war work has been made public and it was easily the feature of the eleventh week of the trial. Henry Ford spent seven days on the witness stand and of this time he gave leas than two hours to his own law yers. As long as counsel for The Tribune was hammering him Mr. Ford sat quietly In the witness chair an swering the constant fire of questions with great patience. But the Instant bla own lawyers took him In hand his attitude changed. He became self conscious and diffident. He would not accept the efforts of his counsel to provide him with an opportunity to reveal the full extent of his patriotic work daring the war, his humanltari an views, or his advanced ideas ol the relations which should exist be tween capital and labor. "It is all In the records," said Mr. Ford. "It have told It all hers once.'* He avoided, with care, anything that verged on boasting. He would not even describe the extent of the war work which his factories did and when record breaking performances In tho production of munitions was mention ed he declared, "we did all we could, let It go at that. I want to forget all about lL I feel Just as the soldiers f<sl. I don’t want to talk about my war work." The witness did, however, after be. Ing pressed, explain that his son had bought out the minority stockholders of the Ford Motor company because these Interests had Insisted on Mr Ford squeeslng the last dollar ont of the public, the government, the work rrs and the product. He wanted to cut loose from his associates, he said, so that he could carry out his Ideas of the distribution of profits to em ployees through Increased wages att.J to the public through lower prices. It wis either buy or sell and Mr. Ford had considered selling and organising a new company. His son, however, took up the task of buying out the minority stockholders and succeeded, despite the general belief In the finsn cial world that this stock could not he purchased. One of the most Interesting develop ment** of Mr. Ford's testimony came rut when it was testified that the only legislation he has ever sought w:»s that for the protection of birds. Other men of millions, it was shown, lobbyists In the national and state capital to urge and work for special privileges, but the one favor that M*\ Fo.d has ever asked from the law makers had nothing to do with his own interests. It was a curious bit »f testimony and left a deep Impres sion on the audience In the court chamber. The subject was a result of ques tions concerning Mr. Ford’s list of friends. He named Thomas Edison And John Burroughs, the naturalist, as his best friends outside of his lin mediate associates. Litigation In which Mr. Ford has been Interested was another subject of Interest It was shown that when the automobile business was in the first years of Its growth all manufac turers of motor cars were compelled to pay tribute to what was known as the Selden patent on internal combus tion engines. Mr. Ford fought this patent for seven years and won and by bis victory freed the entire industry from Its shackles and made possible (be wonderful growth ttuk bag mark. Id tbe last few TMh.

Wayland, Director of Sav ings for the Tenth Federal Reserve District, has issued the following state ment: 1— At the urgent request of the Treasury Department and in order tc simplify distribution, the hand gren ade savings banks will be distributed by commercial banks and trust com pajlies instead of through Counts Chairmen and County Superintendent* as previously outlined. 2 One grenade is to be loaned by any bank to any child under 18 year* old who will sign a thrift agreement similar to the accompanying form.

I under stand that when I have saved enough to purchase War Savings SUmp...., and have been regularly enrolled as a member of a Savings So ciety, the hand grenade becomes my personal property. Otherwise it still remains the property of the bank. If 1 do not earn the grenade by October 1, 1919, I will return it to the Bank. HOLDING SONDS 18 THRIFT. Belling Liberty leeues for Lees Than They Are Worth Is the Height of Folly. Two things are true when a Liberty Bond changes hands for less than the highest market price. One person is selling something for less than Its value; another person la lucky in strik ing a bargain; one is a chump, the other Is fortunate. You may argue the one Is forced to sell. Possibly true, but his banker will lend him nearly the amount of his in vested caplUl on his bond, or will show him a* way to get the highest possible valne. The record of the sale and purchase of Liberty Bonds shows one thing plainly, that virtually all the Liberty Bonds that are sold are finding their way Into the hands of thrifty persons who realize that the bonds are selling for less than their real value. These purchasers will held the bonds until maturity whan they will be at par, and undoubtedly at considerably above par in narly every case. If there is a more decided example of thrift than this, the Treasury Depart ment at Washington would like to know of it "Extravagance rots character; train yonth away from It On the other hand, the habit of saving money, while it stiffens the will, also brightens the energies. If you would bo sure that you are beginning right begin to save."—Theodore Roosevelt Because the hostilities are over, do not shift into careless spending, but thrift forward Into wise saving.
