mortgages, etc. that -he held.
"We will continue the Grainger
Motor Company corporation for
some time to come and will
collect these accounts in the
same building just as we did
before," the company spokes
man said this week.
Mr. and Mrs. Grainger, pres

respectively of the company,
released the following state
mint in order to clear up any
misconceptions arising from
i last week's published report of
I the transaction:
"To our friends end custom
ers: We debated over the idea
of giving up the new car
iianchise for about 3 years, but
wc did not want to take anoth
er business out of Tabor City.
I "We did not own the fran
chise, as it is owned by Ford
Motor Company. We on differ
ent occasions offered to release
it to Mr. Willard Small if his
corporation would build their
own plaMr Of business and let
us keep our same location so as
to serve our customers better
and more efficiently. But as
they would not agree for us to
compete against them acting as
an independent automobile
dealer in Tabor City, we only
released the franchise, sold the
parts, equipment, new cars in
stock and on order.
"In regards to our customer«,
all notes and accounts receiv
able remain the some, and will
be collected in the same build
ing as before.
"We also wish to express our
rincere appreciation for all past
business relations with our
customers and to thank them
foi being so good to us. Any
business is dependent upon its
customers. L. S. Grainger, pres

"We hope in the near future
