Fierce-Arrow's forerunner wns the (Jeorge N, Pierce Co., founded by George N. Pierce, George K. Bti'Be. Henry fifay nn<! Col. Charles Clirton, who for 20 years prior to his death in 1929 wns president of the National Automobile Chamber nf Commerce. First Model In 1901 A skeptical public got its glimpse of the company's first gasoline model — the Pierce Molorellc — in 1901. It was a success, and the company (lecliled to abandon bicycles and bird cages ami concentrate on automobile-making. From the beginning, Pierce cars were quality cars, which the average man could not afford to buy. When mass production technique •and low prices came to Ihe Indusi try. Pierce continued to produce curs on a handwork basis. Some custom-built models were sold loins high as $46,000. Tlic company's greatest prosperity came during the war when its plant, employing more than 5,000 men, turned out trucks for the Allied armies at an amazing rate of speed. As the years passed, business began falling off. The year 1933 ended with tile company in the red, and a year Inler reorganization proceedings were slarted in Federal court. .A large group of business anrt civic leaders helped contribute $900,000 so that operations could be resumed. In 1936, 'with the demand for quality cars still dormant. Pierce attempted to capitalize on the market for automobile Irailers anrt offered , a quality., trailer for sale. There were few. ; lakers, and more red-ink splashed "across the books. Operations Halted in 1937 Operations were halted again in Jp.nuary, 1937. A new reorgaiiiza- 1 w°n was discussed anil Postmaster * General James A. Farley suddenly (.merged as a leading figure in the plan. It was said that he had agreed to become the sales head of the company at a salary of approximately $50,000 a year, provided that a recapitalization could be achieved. It was planned to raise 510.700.000 by a public stock sate, and a Cleveland, O., firm agreed to purchase the entire issue for re-sale. The bubble burst with the recession. In Federal court again, it was decided that all hope, had vanished for re-establishing the firm. There was no source to tap for (lie needed capital. Last April 11. Federal Judge John Knight declared tlie Fierce-Arrow Motor Corporation insolvent nnd ordered its li- quidalion.

It is now iccognized as an indispensable tool for tlie early cultivation of corn, beans, mint, beets, and other crops. It is uncqualcd for maintaining proper tillage conditions in eccd beds from the time they are made ready for seeding until t)io crops are largo enough for safe cultivation with shovel cultivators. ' The big advantage of the rotary hoc is that it can bo used to break crust and restore proper conditions before it would be possible to use shovel cultivalors. One of the most crilical times in the life of a plant, is when the iprout is just coming through the ground. If the seed bed is covered mlh a crust at this time, many plants will not get through.
