i THK AT/TOONA MIRROR—TUESDAY. NOVEMBER 5. - "f'.' ' ' ":'" . ' ]'-{•• / k I • IN THE BUSINESS WORLD OF TODAY By .1. C. nOVLK, StnfT Correspondent. (Copyright, 1029. by Altoonn Mirror.) NEW YORK, T*ov. S,—Costs, not prices, are the weapons counted on by American industry today to capture markets Ht home and nhrond. Tt is now recognized by the progressive leaders that America's strength both ftt home and abroad lies In volume of production and distribution and quality rather tHan In advances in prlc«. The narrowing of the margins of pro/It, which volume permits, Is rnuntur-bnl- anclng cheap foreign labor. It is for this reason thnt steel men and government official. 1 " see in the acquisition of the Columbia Hte«l corporation by United States Steel a long rangejsighting shot in the bombardment of domestic and foreign markets. This move assures to the leading Illeel Interest In the first place sources 6f raw material supply at points particularly well situated with respect to markets for finished products which are growing with utmost rapidity. It also provides plants for turning those raw materials Into manufactured products cheaply. Combined, these factors mean a striking reduction and,distribution costs. The Columbia Steel corporation, In its formation combined tho steel company and the Utah Co*l and Coke company, with tremendous bituminous coal deposits in Utah. It also owns the Milner, Dcar-Lerch holdings at Iron mountain, Utuh, which Includu nn entire mountain of high grade iron ore. It also has a lease on government-owned coal lands in Cargon country, Utah, which It mines on a royalty basis, paying the government 12% cents a ton. It also has lime deposits and other raw material supplied. Columbia has steel plants at Ironlon, Ut., at Torrence and Pittsburgh, Calif., and at Portland, Ore. The United States Steel corporation holds control of tremendous, iron 'deposits in China which It has held in reserve for years. It was with the id.ea of. eventual utilization of these deposits that the company acquired the old Scott Iron works at Saw Francisco years ago. These oriental Iron supplies can be laid down at the company's Pacific coast plants at a minimum expense, since transportation Is largely by water and production is by use of low priced Chinese labor. The leading interest has tremendous holdings in the Iron districts of Minnesota but the days of even these huge deposits are numbered. Moreover, manufacture of ste»l products near the centers of consumption la economically advisable. The markets available for the Columbia plants have prospect of a magnificent future. The volume of building construction throughout the Pacific coast and iiitermouhtaln states in steadily growing. These states represent a big part of the tin plate de- mand for cans and container*. Tho rail purchases of the western roads involve millions annually. With the new plants, United States Steel will be in a formidable position to meet competition of the Colorado Fuel and Iron company, which has had much of this business unopposed, filling It from Its 'ueblo plants. The demand for oil country supplies rom California, Colorado, New Mex- KO, Wyoming and other oil producing tales Is growing. In California pres- nt projects Involve the laying of hun- Ireds of miles of gas lines. The foreign trade within reach al- eady represents a huge volume of niHiness, which is growing constantly, 'apan hns just commenced Its program if stable, permanent construction. tVhen the great earthquake destroyed vhole cities a few years ago, the Japanese decided they would do only tem- iorary work until a general plan of iiiildlng could be arrived at. The real vork and the real call for steel pro- nets have just begun. China is grow- ng by leaps, and bounds industrially nd Is becoming a large factor in ex- iort trade of all sorts from the United Uates. China sold other nations $509,)00,000 worth of her products last year ind Is In a position to buy their neces- arles In return. Germany and Great Britain are flght- ng hard for the oriental markets and he new move of United States Steel vlll lessen any advantage they may iavo. France and Belgium have dom- nated the cast iron pipe markets on lie Pacific coast but it seems likely heir supremacy there will be of short uratlon. ( Pittsburgh, Youngstown, Cleveland, Chicago, Toledo and Birmingham all )ecame great steel centers because hey were close to supply of materials nd close to the centers of consumption if steel products. In other words, production and distribution costs were ow. The present action of the leading nterest may mean the establishment f a new center which will rank with he others In the course of yearn.

Today, more and more colds are treated this modern way, and the whole trend of medical practice is away from needless "dosing." Mothers of young children especially appreciate Vicks, because it checks colds without risk of upsetting delicate little stomachs. Of course it is equally good for adults. Just rubbed , t on, Vicks acts through the skin like a poultice or plaster; and; at the same time, it gives off medicated vapors which are inhaled direct to the inflamed air-passages. To keep pace with the everoncreasing demand for this better method of treating colds, the famous Vick slogan has again been changed, as there are now "Over 06 Million Jars UsedYearly."
