W1LKIE JETROIT— (J>) — The 4,100,000th motor vehicle to be bLllt in the United States-this year roll-d Iron the assembly,here recently. Thus .the .car. industry in a few hours more "than 11 months, has made more vehicles tlan it produced In all of .1947. Last year's total was 4.797,820 cars and trucks. Schedules for December indicate another 455,000 units may be built before'the year end. "toe indicated 1948 total of about 5,250,000 assemblies will fall short of the record but by less than a single ^veek's output. The record for United States production is 5,358,420 vehicles built in 1929. What, might have happened had there been ; fewe assembly llm interruptions this year due to materials -shortages and labor disputes is being •widely, discussed in industry (quarters. Probably • • year's total production could have been boosted to nearly 6,000,000 vehicles. It is' more likely, 1-owever; that had the industry -been able to get all the production it wanted a lot more time would have been used in the model change-overs. Making up for- most o' the time lost in plant shutdowns, the auto makers have cut new model shutdowns' to a minimum. Change-overs that formerly required two months now are being made in a. matter of -a couple of weeks. Ford made • ohe of the biggest model changes in the company's history in something like five weeks; General Motors has put its 'now Buick. Cadillac and Oldsmobile models on the assembly lines' v.-jth only brief stoppages. It has yet to bring out the 194° Pontiacs and IChevrolets, but Indications are these vill cut to- the assembly lines with Jily a brief halt in production. The trade .paper Automotive Hews said this week it -'had learned "Chrysler plans_ to weave 1949 models in with current models," and added: , "Chrysler Dlvisior,' is scheduled to build some 500 new models in December n'.ong with the old. Other divisions have similar plans." While little has been disclosed officially about Chrysler's new model plans, volume production of the new cars is not expected before February. Formal introduction of the nev. 1 model" may be m-de late in February or early in Mai -h. The speed with which the new model change-overs are being made suggests the various manufacturers are becoming increasing!: concerned a'oout what their competitors are doing. All are keeping close watch on the order lists of their fellow manufacturers; If the buyers' market is near, every car maker wants to be ready for it. The car makers admittedly are uncertalr .as to what lies ahead in 1949. Some have said they expect more steel and more car output next year; others say ste^l isn't eoing to be. any more plcnt -i . than it has been th: ough 1948 and that there is no assurance at all !hat 5,000.0"0 vehicles can be built next year. Aside from the' steel outlook the trer.gtl" of the unfilled order back- Protesls Movie Plan SCHAPFHAUSEN, Switzerland — (j>j—The executive committee of the International Bach Society here has protested the contemplated" production of a film based on the Matthew Passion of Johann Sebastian Bach.
