■ (or many years has been in favor of

the permanent court of arbitration
which was improved by the sacomh
conference and is, still 'functioning.
Secretary Root, iitTfrever, desired a
further step to be taken, Instructing
the American delegates to the 1907
conference.
“It should he your effort to bring
about in the second conference a de

Judges who are judicial officers and
nothing else, who are paid adequate

The conference planned a court but

Washington.—Henry Ford’s coining

declaration that he “would never for

Coolidge for president on any ticket.”
naturally produced a feeling of satis
faction at the White House.
The president promptly indited a
message of thanks and appreciation
to Detroit, while the sending of the
telegram was admitted at the White
House it was stated that it clSild
be made public by Mr. Ford.
Actually the White House has beenf
aware of tfte’decision of -the automo
bile manufacturer for a week, it was
probably disclosed to the president by
Mr. Ford when he visited him, hut no
public notice could he taken of it un
til the public annuuncement came
from Detroit. At that time Burt Ca
dy, chairman of the Republican state
committee, pointed out that the call
ing off of the third party convention
that was to have met in Detroit to
rum, mvciiit tutu, iuc muci
would withdraw in favor of Mr. Cool
idge.
There are no mixed emotions os to
the parking of the auto magnate’s
boom for four years. Both the Demo
crats and the Republicans hail it ar
a relief, not as they explain, that he
menaced their party in particular, but
he' complicated an already involved
situation .to a degree that seriously
interferd with calculations.
Now, the Democrats say, they will
have the call on the Progressives in
all the states where Ford was likely
, f.O-get’ the electoral vote on a third
ticket. The McAdoo boosters are par
ticularly relieved for they, feared that
Ford would gather a hunch of con
vention delegates to the national con
vention, that can now be counted for
their candidate.
•’ --Republicans took the view that
while it was gratifying to the Cool
idge supporters, the effect to the
withdrawl was more clarifying to the
general situation than helpful to any
body in particular. Their basis for
this thought that, the Independent
field is now clear for Da Follette,
whereas with Ford in the race, the
domination of the'Wisconsin senator
was certain only in his o\yn state,
cither as a third part candidate or
as a contender for delegates in the
Republican convention.
The Cooiidge people tried to figure
that Ford's adherence to the* presi
dent would annihilate Hiram John
con’s chances, 1. . the tatter's friends
say that while Ford as a candidate
presented a formidable figure he could
not deliver his strength to Cooiidge
or anybody else.
“It was not. unexpected,” was John
son’s own statement. ”It lias :been
known in Washington for some -time
that Ford would support Mr. Cooi
idge.”
The same belief in the non-nego
tiahle quality of.Fowl's followers was
voiced by various Democrats.

4,000,000 Autos Is
Output, Year 1923
Trade Experts Estimate Produc
tion at Best in Industry’s
History.
New York.—The manner In which the
production and sale of automobiles is
holding up at this season of the year
has surprised even the most optimistic
leaders In the Industry. When an out
put of approximately 3,400,1100 cars In
the lirst ten months of the current year
was reported, predictions were made
that the demand for 1023 lmd virtually
been satislied and tliut a reduction in
sales would not he surprising in the
Closing months of the year. This pre
dicted slump, however, has failed to
materialize thus far, and while there
has been some curtailment in produc
tion schedules, the seasonal slack has
been less pronounced titan in other
years. The statement Is now mad* in
the 'trade that “current automobile
business is better than that for the
corresponding period of any preceding
year.. Both sales and production thus
far thjs- fall have run 40 per cent
ahead of a'yea i' ago, and the 11)22 au
tumn season was an unusually active
one.for-tlie trade.”
To Establish New Mark.
Due to the practical closing of the
open-car season and the seasonal tak
ing of inventory, some further curtail
ment of production is.to be expected
for the remainder of the year, but de
spite this it is expected that the indus
try will establish u 4,000,000-car mark
production record this year. Most of
the leading manufacturers, it is point
eu om, nave large untitled orders for
closet* ears on rJlieir books, and this
business, together with the orders
placed by the Southern and Pacific
coast territories for open cars, is ex
pected to hold the average output for
November and December close to the
300,000-car mark. If the 4,000,000-car
mark is reached, it is interesting to
recall that the highest estimate Tor
1023 output made by any producer .at
the National Automobile show Inst'
January called for a production of only
3,000,000 cars, or approximately 25 per
cent less than the probable output for
the year.
The splendid showing, made by the
Industry during 1022 and 1923, two rec
ord-breaking years, has resulted in un
usual prosperity for the manufacturers,
the result being that they are virtually
all in a strong financial position
The Standard Daily Trade Service
says: "Illustrative of this strong po
sition of the Industry is the fact that
although its output this year will he
more than 50 per cent greater than last
year, plant expansion has been pro
vided for almost entirely from earn
ings, and increased production is
measurably due togreater manufactur
ing efficiency. In the main, the motor
car producing companies are financing
from their own resources the greatest
volume of business in their history,
and, in spite of tills, are carrying cash
balances larger than ever before.
“Another favorable feature of the
current situation is the strong position
of the dealer branch of the Industry.
Notwithstanding t he record-breaking
volume of business placed by the deal
ers with the manufacturers during the
last ten months, stocks of new cars in
retail merchandising channels are rela
tively small. This means that the deal
ers will have to place substantial or
ders for spring models during the next
four months. The used-car situation,
though still unfavorable, gives evi
dence of readjusting itself on a better
basis. Used car losses suffered by
dealers during the third quarter of
1923 amounted to $5.054,000, according
to tlie National Automobile Dealers’
association, a reduction of 73% per
cent ns compared with the second
quarter. This indicates that the deal
ers are less disposed to make unrea
sonably high allowances on trade-ins.
On October 1 last dealers had a stock
of 399,600 used automobiles, compared
with 430,000 on January 1.
One Firm Plans 10,000 Cars Daily.
“Meanwhile, the industry Is now
turning Its attention to the 1924 pros
pects. It is announced that one com
pany is planning to produce an aver
age of 10,000 cars a day on February 1,
1924. The present output of the com
pany, -which lias been steadily iucreas
Ing all year,"Is approximately.7,500 cub.
a day, and the total to be turned out'If
1923 will approximate 2,000,000 ve
hides. On the basis of 10,000 cars pet
day, this company’s plants alone would
turn out next year (if current plum
are carried out) approximately 3,000,
000 cars and trucks. Another corpora
tion Is planning to produce approxi
mately 88,000 cars in January, 1924.
This figure is only about 3,000 cars less
than the output for October, .the best
month In the history of the company.
These two companies ure the leaders
of the automobile Industry. Between
them they sell more than 50 per cent
of the total production of motorcars.
In connection with the movement of
prices, the review says that, “although
automobiles prices are now at approxi
mately the lowest levels ever reached,
some further slight downward readjust
ments early next year are probable. At
least two of the leading manufacturers
in the high-priced field are planning to
make reductions, while a number of
other producers In the medium-priced
field are planning to bring out cars to
sell under, or around $1,000. These
moves will doubtlessly lead some of
the companies already established In
these fields to make price readjust
ments.”

11,000 Women Reported
As Missing During 1923
Travelers Aid Societies Declare
Over 900 Girls Have
Not Been Found.
New York.—More than 11,000 girls
and women were reported missing
during 1922 by police headquarters in
33 American citles.(^tf«J approximate*
ly 900 of them had nyt been located
by December 31. *
These figures were gathered by the
National Association of Travelers Aid
Societies of this city in an effort to
estimate the number and types of per
sons who drop out of sight each year.
Reports from 37 cities, the associa
tion said, gave a total of 31,(538 men,
women and children who disappeared,
about 2,500 of whom were not found.
Seeking for people who disappear
[ is a part of Travelers Aid service
which protects Inexperienced travelers
from harm hy giving advice and help
tat railroad stations and steamship
piers, according to John It. Shillady,
general director of the National asso
ciation.
Works in 160 Cities.
“Travelers Aid workers in 160 cities
helped more than 2,000,000 persons
last year,” lie snfd, "saving thousands
of girls from being lured off by de
1 signing individuals in crowded sta
tions. The service helped all travel
ers, from mere information seekers to
those in dire emergency.”
Police reports show that in New
York city, 2,446 girls and women Were
reported missing in 1922, 1,652 of
whom were girls under twenty-one
years. Chicago recorded 1,549; Los
Angeles, 1,020; Philadelphia, 1,000;
St. Louis had 798; San Francisco, 471,
and Detroit, 311. About 92 per cent
of the missing were finally located—
dead or alive—but the records show
that many had undergone experiences
worse than dentil.
Large as these figures are, they rep
resent only about one-half of the act
ual number of those who actually
dropped out of sight at some • time
during the year, in the opinion of
Capt. John H. Ayers, chief of the bu
reau of missing persons, New York
city.
Fail to Report Disappearances.
"People often fall to report disap
pearing members of their family to
us because they mistakenly fear we
will bring publicity upon them, when
that is (he last thing we want to do,”
said Captain Ayers In a statement to
the National association.
“Many also drop out of sight who
have no one sufficiently Interested to
make a report. In our best judgment,.
I we feel it fair to double • actual fig
j tires, making a total- of 4,892 women
I and girls in New Yftrk pity, of whom,
i 3,304 wore under twenty-one, yettrs of.

for two minor bequests the entire
estate is left to his family.
Surprise was expressed by some at
the low estimate. It had been re

tate of many millions. Many gifts
made during his lifetime depleted Mr.
Pinkerton's estate but it is expected
that an inventory later will show a

But Fare Better Otherwise. .
Washington.—The mericaft Legion
has been assured by Chairman Green
of the- house ways 'and means com

gress will have an opportunity to yoje

for the next fiscal yCar'can TfBt bo
accurately estimated. Nor can con- ,
gress determine how the income tax t
shall he revised until it knowB how
much, jnoaex. has to be raised.
Passage of . the bomuu by both,
houses is at the moment' assured and
the American Legion is cot&H<g£ ot
adoption over a presidential vet'O. In .
the face of these facts, and also with
a majority of the ways and means
committee itself favorable to the
bonus, the situation now tufnS on
what is the actual cost of the bdnus.
There have been varying estimates
and differences of opinion, due larg-ly
to the" fact that they# . are ifiv.e -sep
arate methods of payment and each
veteran .is given the right to avail
himself of any one, but only one, of
the following plans:
1. Adjusted service pay. This plan
is limited to veterans whose adjusted
service credit is'not more than $50.
A veteran who has served 100 days
on this side of the Atlantic, lielng paid
at the rate of $1 a day.'wou« have
a credit of $100, but there would be
subtracted from this the $60 paid
him when he was discharged, so that
the cash tiutlay would be $40. Those
with longer service would not get
more than $50 in cash, so the total
cash payment is known definitely to
he in the neighborhood of $16,000,000.
Overseas veterans have a higgler cred
it but the total cash Is about the
same. Popular impression seems to
be that the cash payments can not
go higher than $16,000,000, but under
the bill introduced by Senator Curtis
of Kansas, which is tne American
Legion measure, tne cash payments
are limited.
2. Adjusted service certificates.
This permits the veterans-to receive
a paid-up insurance policyv payable
at the end of 20 years.. To include
veterans lo take this plan, a 25 per
cent increase in amount of his ad
justed service credit is given; that is
he is paid on the same basis as if
1 he had served one-f'ourth more than
he has actually been in service. An
■ interest payment of 4V per cent, eom
t pounded annually for 20 years, is also
> included, and if the veteran dies be
f fore the* end of 20 years his family
or estate gets the full value of the
certificate.
i 3. Vocation training is given a. the
1 expense of the government to an
1 amount equal to his adjusted service
credit plus 40 per cent at the rate of
$175 per day.
4. Starm or home -akl is, given for
the purpose of enabling the veteran
to make improvements o.u. city or
suburban home or farm Qiy to pur
chase, .the same. Aii. arij'ouht-*equal to
his adjusted service credit-plus 25
