Mr. J. S. Keown, Manager of the
Louisville branch of the Ford Metor
Company, has jus returned from the
Ford branch managers convention
held at the factory in Detroit, where
35 branch managers from all the as
sembly and service branches through
out the United States and the 8
branch managers of the Ford Motor
Company of Canada have been in
session for the last ten dpys.
The fiscal year of the Ford Motor
Companp ends July 31st, and this
convention, preceding an anticipated
twelve months of unequalled produc
tion and demand for Ford cars, is of
exceptional importance to the Ford
Motor Company and to the automo
bile industry as a whole since . 28
Ford assembling plants were repre
sented where the combined present
production is 3,000 cars a day and
which have over 9,600 employes.
The manufacturing effort of the
company for the first six months of
the present year was concentrated
almost entirely upon the output of
war materials, and it was not until
March, 1919, that the production of
Ford cars and Ford parts began to
assume normal proportions. At the
nresent time output is averaging
about 3,000 cars a day, and produc
tion for the year ending July 31, 1919
will be over 525.000 cars.
The production of 3,000 Ford cars

It appeared that a prorata for thls

that the matter will not be conduct

to be a help to the order's greatest

In the convention particular at

the production efforts which are be
ing made to meet tne demand ior
Ford cars throughout the world, and
an estimated output of approximate
ly 1,000,000 cars was announced for
next year. Further attention was
given to that part of the Ford serv
ice to Ford owners which aims to
place stocks of Genuine Ford parts
within convenient access of Ford
owners everywhere through regular
Ford Dealers and garages.

one man or a newspaper with the
help of the wide-awake men of the
place all pulling together can make
a. wide difference in a place. Every
man who succeeds in a town is a
help to it. The more money he
makes if he spends It, the Better ior
the community. The larger business
he builds up, the more he advertises,
the more attention Is called to tne
town. A man cannot build up an
honorable business In a town with

not build up without helping the
country. The interest of one Is the
Interest of all. The rivalry that
sometimes exists between towns In
