H. Washbiirn How Car Prices Stock Up With Food and Wages Quoted ,There was considerable commo- on in a community out West when |lt appeared that a wire had fallen across the main street and was holding up traffic. No one dared ftouch it for fear it was "live." The news reached the editor of the local lewspaper and he acted promptly. |"Send down two reporters," he [ordered, "one to touch the wire sand the other to write the story." Speaking for the entire au- Jimobile industry General Motors lhas something to say about prices, |in the brochure which it published |to celebrate its 50-millionth car. Here is the motor industry's |explanation of prices: "Based on published prices for farm produce, average rates of factory pay as reported by the U. S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, and delivered-at-the- factory prices of cars, it took »3,100 bushels of wheat, or 15,0, hours of factory labor, back in 1908, to purchase the top car In the company's line. "But as of the fall of 1954 it required less than 900 bushels of wheat or just under 1,000 hours of factory ' labor, to acquire a current model of the cheapest car in the line — a better car by far than any of . the earlier expensive ones. Moreover, the 'price' of this [(ftcurrent popular model in terms " of wheat or factory work is lower than that of the 1940 popular model, and substantially befcw that of the 1929 middle-priced car." This may be presumed to be a factual measurement of how ca: prices stack up with commoditie and wages over a period of nearly 50 years. But you will note that Genera Motors took care to specifj ^delivered-at-the-faclory prices. 1 Rightly enough, the motor industr; disclaims responsibility for federal excise taxes, transportation' taxes; local sales and other taxes .which have been put upon automobiles by the people who buy them T^- not the people who make them.. Previous industry-wide surveys have fixed the tax content as more than 30c out of every $1 paid for a new automobile, although some »j!if this, of course, has been absorbed in the factory price. ^^^^v^^^^L J^^^^^^^ttgL • • Tm^m •'••'• "•-'•• • • •^•^^^•^•j ^^pm^^ _ ^mn^ig|^te * .^tfii^k. iWJLrf^ f A 4HBlRMBHMi . ^- WiATHIA <:*, * . to 56TH YEAR: VOL. 56 — NO. 64 Star of Mope 1899* tost 192?

Law Enforcement The Committee on Law Enforce ment has investigated all complaints called to its attention. We believe the laws are being enforced in Hempstead County On a comparable basis with the surrounding or adjoining counties. We are aware, and the public generally knows, that the liquor laws are difficult to enforce; therefore we Wish to recommend, with the hope of. receiving co-operation, that the citizenship of Hempstead County join in to help enforce and carry out the spirit as well as the letter of the law, particularly as it pertains to Intoxicating liquors. We sincerely urge that the County .officers and the City officers co-bperr ate and work together for a 'better enforcement of the liquor laws in the City of Hope.

The council's estimate, based on past performance, covers the 54-hour period from 6 p .m. Friday'to midnight Sunday. It covers • immediate traffic deaths only, and does not include injured who died after the holiday period. Ned H. Dearborn, council president, urged motorists .to drive safely and avoid a repetition of the Christmas holiday record in which 380 persons were killed. "Don't let us sit in an office and predict with tragic accuracy how many will be killed in holiday crashes," he said. "Listen to the advice because , an accident can happen to you. "We .cordially invite you to start the'new year by making a bum out of the National Safety Council and its pre- holiday estimate." viewed all of the County property including road machinery, County buildings, etc. We -wish to' recommend that the County Judge make proper repairs to the jail. The plaster on the walls and plumbing therein need immediate attention. The County equipment was found to be in satisfactory condition and being properly handled. The Committee investigated sales-and purchases of County "equipment and found no evidence bf the such sales and purchases being handled in an illegal manner. The la>v requiring bids! advertising, etc., are in our opinion being complied with. County Offices Based upon the audits made by the State Comptroller, our Committee-concluded that all offices are t being handled in a businesslike and j satisfactory - manner,. However, relative to real estate tax 'records," we make the following observation and recommendation to the appropriate County officials: It has been called to our attention that there has.been several errors made in connection with the records of real estate in this county, and that various tracts of land have been erroneously certified as being delinquent, when in fact this condition did not exist or occur. We therefore recommend and earnestly request that all officials in the three different offices that handle the tax books be careful, diligent, and check and re-check to see that all descriptions and all assessments arc placed on the books properly in the future. Elections The Committee spent three full Carthy (R-Wls) said today he is seeking a seat on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee in the hope of influencing Eisenhower ad- minisration policies in Asia which he regards as "disastrous."
