MARYLAMD MOB TAHS YDUHE GIRL 'J.S.SEBDSSTBDHB !TE TO TEHEHAf REBELS DRIVEN FROM Si PAULO Ford Sales Increases 15 Pet.; Lincolns Gain 42 Pet. Detroit, Mich. Excluding Sundays and holidays and figuring full operation for 24 hours each day, the Ford Motor company made and sold nearly 5 cars, including Fords, trucks, tractors and Lincolns, every minute of the first six months of this year, establishing a new high record. Total sales of all uuits during tl)e period was 1,074,227. Of this number 1,020,-078 was of Ford cars and trucks, an increase over the same period a year ago of 15 per cent, and 4,015 was of Lincolns, an increase of 42 per cent. Tractor sales were at about the same rate as a year ago, the total being make for success or failure in this pioneer development toward the new-day of democracy in industry. "A good illustration," he writes, "of the sound sense and business judgment exercised by a straight workers committee in charge of the management 'of company houses is supplied by the minutes of a housing committee, one of the subcommittees of a workman's board. "These workers exhibit no disposition to throw away company money. Profit-sharing is a part of the plan in this mill and forms a strong incentive to economy. Careful, but just, they have, in fact, managed the property intrusted to them conservatively, restricting decorations, making tenants meet the company halfway, standardizing rents, removing favoritism! The president of this company, after three years' experience in the matter, 'made the following public statement in regard to workmen's management of company housing: i " 'The various functions connected with the management of the company housing are performed more efficiently by the board of operatives than they in i'. - - 'v i' High-school courses enrolled nearly i 10,000 students, English standing first among the subjects taught with 2.S12 students, physical education second, with 2,280, and mathematics third, with 1,611.

Work don3 in the evening high school is credited toward a high-school diploma. Altogether. 52.6S2 students attended the evening j courses, more than half of them men. ! Windiest Zone Found in Northern part of U. S. The windiest zone in the northern hemisphere embraces the northern United States and southern Canada. The windiest months are those of late autumn, winter and very early spring. August has the lowest average wind velocity, March and early April the highest. Wind is the flow of air-from an area of high pressure slantwise to an area of low pressure. The greater 1 the contrast of pressure between the masses of air over two adjacent regions, the swifter and stronger will the wind blow. Pressure differences are largely dependent upon temperature contrasts. In summer the temperature contrast between high and low latitudes is relatively small; in winter it is great, for while the snow covered north gets colder and colder in low latitudes there is little temperature variation through the year. Therefore, the pressue gradient, to use the term of meteorology, is gentle in summer and steep in winter. The gradient may be likened to a slope of land. The air pushes down the gradient from high pressure to low as water flows down a vaiiabje slope. The steeper the slope the greater the velocity, whether it be air or water. Therefore, because the gradient is steeper in the cold month the fiercer are the winds. There is, however, a curious difference between the flow of a stream of water and that of the air. The water flows down the slope, the air along it, owing to the rotation of the earth on its axis. Points to Good Done By Workers' Councils About a thousand American factories have adopted one form or another of employee representation. The minutes of the boards and committees of these factories on which employees have representatives give us our first chance to pull industrial democracy down out of the cloudland of theory into the field of deportable fact. James Meyers, wrho has observed at first hand the development of industrial democracy, examines the minutes of a number of factories in his article, "Democracy in American Factories," in the Century Magazine. He says this article "is designated to furnish a brief close-up of some of the actual activities of workers' councils, throwing into high relief a few of the practical principles and methods which Federals Take City After Severe Fighting; Whippet Tanks Big Factor. Buenos Aires. After 23 days of almost continuous lighting the Brazilian rebel forces evacuated the city of Sao Paulo under pressure of the government besieging army, which Is now in possession of the entire city. This information is contained in oilicial announcement made by the Brazilian war office. The rJtels fled In special trains toward the interior and are being pursued- Their only avenues of escape are to the west and the northwest, and the government asserts that Its troops in these regions already are in positions to deal with them. The withdrawal of the rebels from Sao Paulo followed severe fighting inside the city on Sunday. The rebels appear to have made a desperate effort to hold back the government advance, but failed. Infantry Follows Tanks. At daybreak Monday the federal forces brought whippet tanks Into play against the rebels. The rebels already had begun their evacuation when this assault was made. The federals took numerous prisoners, but the rebel leaders, including Gen, Isidoro Lopez, escaped. It is reported that the rebel major Miguel Costa failed to escape and committed suicide. When the federals took possession of the city at noon the governor, Carlos Campos, who had been deposed by the rebels, resumed his office. Official reports received here from Brazil describe the inhabitants of the battered state capital as having greeted the federal forces with rejoicing. All Americans Safe. Washington. Withdrawal of the revolutionary forces from Sat) Paulo and the occupation of that city by Brazilian government forces was announced In advices received by the State department. The department's advices were based upon dispatches from the admiral commanding the Brazilian naval forces, which said all Americans in Sao Paulo were found to be safe. Sle Yoting Lady I -?

Important Work Done by Chicago Evening Schools Chicago's public evening schools enrolled more than 50,000 persons in the past school year.
