A PRIVATE HOUSECLEANING All the financial newspapers in the country and many other publications recently ran a story telling how Hen ry Ford solved the difficulties of the Ford Motor Comany in its readjust ment from a war to a peace basis. In brief Mr. Ford did what every good business man has been doing. He cut down his inventories by using up all material on hand, reduced his prices and distributed his product to his various agents. He pushed his collections, both foreign and domes tic, sold what Liberty Bonds were necessary, and reduced obligations to a minimum. "Then," says Mr. Ford, "We went through the offices pnd cut out a lot of Jobs created during the war. We literally took out and Bold a train load of desks. We told the men who occupied these desks that back in the shop there were many good jobs at good pay, If they wanted them. Most of them did. the office forces from 1,074 persons to 628.

Compare the housecleaning in the Ford plant to the helpless position of the railroads which are still bound by the heritage of war regulat'ons and working conditions but are help less to make needed changes due to political supervision under which trey operate. Think what a blessing it would be to the people of this nation if a house cleaning such as Ford gave Tils plant, could be given to the various branch es of our national government and weed out the dead timber and use less jobs which will be a hangover from the war and a burden to the taxpayers for years to come.
