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
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
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
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
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

Savings Banks.
John T. Wayland, Director of Sav
ings for the Tenth Federal Reserve
District, has issued the following state
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.

brought periodically to the bank that
Issues It, where It will be opened, th«
money counted, and Thrift or Wai
Savings Stamps given in return foi
the contents.
4 —The grenade is to become the

6—While it la optional with tbs
banker. It is suggested that he re
quest contestant to write a letter oi

other children of the county.
The following U the form of tbs

school and prostoffice address:

Bank, loaned by the

and War Savings SUmps. I under

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.
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
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. Day
