Ford Sales Record Broken According to a statement issued hy the Ford Motor Company, deliveries of Ford Cars and Trucks to retail buyers during the month of November totaled 106,327. This is a new high sale; record that has never beer approached by the Company at of the year and one which stands out in marked con trast to the November 1921 retail delivery figures which totaled slightly over 06,000 Cars and Trucks. For eight consecutive months, beginning with April Ist of this year retail deliveries have ex ceeded 100.000 Ford Cars and Trucks each month; the accumu lated total for the first eleven months of 1922 being approxi mately 1,200.000. While the Company points out that it is not unusual for Ford retail sales to exceed the 100,000 mark during the spring and early summer months when the demand is at its peak, the manner in which i business is held up throughout the balance of the year is with i out precedent. Honors for the first entries made in the 1923 National West ern show go to Jackson county, Colorado, better known perhaps as North Park, that great range country from which come so many blue ribbon winners in the feeder sections.

Mason, who I have been allowed to run “at ■arge”. There were about fifty friends of the “bachelors” pre- I sent to enjoy the occassion and j if we don’t miss our guess every- 1 one present had the time of their | lives. At twelve the hoys pre- i Dared “a feast for the king” j which was indeed enjoyed by all : especially Theodore Spencer and Miss Kenyon. The Christmas program given by the M. E. church at the Dut ton building last Sunday evening was a delightful affair and was enjoyed by a large crowd.

Vocal solo’s by other members of the school were also rendered. After the pro gram was over old Saint Nick put in his appearance and made the hearts of the children jump with delight as he delivered his pr esents to each of them. Credit must be given the committee on arrangements also, as the build ing was neatly arranged for the occassion and many a pleasing remark was heard of the de corations—which were indeed good. Miss Lorene Yore, who is here from Boulder spending her school vacation with her parents is not enjoying the occassion as well as she wished for. Miss Yore was taken to the hospital the latter part of last week whither she underwent a slight operation, having her tonsils re moved.

Anton is getting over his trouble in great style and will soon be able to be out of doors once more.
