Raney, Local Registrar, McCrory, Ark. Dear Sir Herewith we are handing you two placards, which we hope will be of great help to you in birth and death regis tration. Please post these where they will be seen and read by the greatest number of people. If you feel that you can use one or two more to advantage, we will be glad to furnish them. In this connection we de sire to impress upon you that the Bureau has been lenient in the matter of violations of the Vital Statistics Law up to now, hoping to secure full co operation from the people by education to the value of the law. However,it is felt that prosecutions of willful viola tors will bring 100% regis tration, and you are instructed to advise us the name or names and addresses of par ties failing to comply, and also the circumstances, so that we may advise you what steps to take. Thirty-four states have al ready entered the National Registration Area on death registrationand twenty-two on birth registration, besides the District of Columbia, and the time has come to remove Ark ansas from the list of “Four teen Backward States” that nave not yet become sumcient ly progressive to fulfill the requirements of an adequate Vital Statistic Law. * It is the desire of the Bu reau to aid its Registrars in every way possible, and we ask that you call on us at any time you feel you need help. Yours very truly, BUREAU OF VITAL STA TISTICS. Quick farm loans are made by the American Investment Co. Write to F. W. PEAR SON, Bradford, Ark., or see Dr. R. L. FRASER, McCrory. Adv. 6-24-4tc. FORD PLANT BUILDS 108,962 IN JUNE Demand Exceeds Output As Ford Breaks All Previous Records. During the month of June, the Ford Motor Company, through its Detroit Factories and 22 Assembly Plants throughout the country reached the production of 108,962 Ford Cars and trucks, setting up a new high record for one month. Prouduction of Ford cars and trucks has been steadily increasing since early spring, and shows substantial gains over the same period last year. The second quarter of 1921, viz., April, May and June, shows an output of 301,796 Ford Cars and trucks against 220,878 for the same three months of last year, or a net increase of 80,198. Despite the fact, however, that the Ford Plants have been running at maximum ca pacity, the demand for Ford cars and trucks is not being met, and at the present time, many thousand unfilled orders have been piled up ahead so that Ford sales are still limited by manufacturing facilities rather than marketing pos sibilities. Particularly is this true with respect to enclosed cars, for which the demand has been unusually heavy. One reason cited by Ford Officials for the unprecedented demand for Ford cars is the present tendency toward economy. Many of those whose names have been added to the long list of buyers might well have afforded larger and more costly cars than the Ford, but it is the belief that most prospective motor car buyers are investi gating all of the costs inci dent to motoring much more carefully than at any period during the past five years. The estimated output of the Ford Factories for July calls for 109,000 cars and trucks, or a production of 4,360 a day for 25 days. Since the as sembling of cars is being handled during an eight hour work day only, the hourly out put will be 545 cars. In other words, one Ford car or truck leaves the assembly line every 6V2 seconds. Adv. SMART BABIES HUNGRY. Dr. Eugene Rosamond of Mem ' phis read a paper before the South 1 era Medical association with the following conclusions: (1) Habit i ual crying in breast-fed babies at a particular time each day—usually I late afternoon and at night—is a ! symptom of hunger. (2) The pre ternaturally smart, wide-awake baby is hungry. (3) Three-months colic is primarily hunger. Starvation, indigestion and milk imbalance, due to the mother’s worry, may cause true colic to supervene, but these right themselves if the baby’s cries are hushed. (4) Supplemental and complemental feeding is the remedy. (5) Complemental feeding should be given only with a cup and spoon. MODEST. I Mr. Wiggum (to servant girl)— Is my wife going out, Annie?
