6? AftoohA MlrMr.) ». C., May 2fe.~ ___, faclurers of (autom'6'- b*fe$ at* sKowlrig strong efforts to 1 "--"••BiBf 'lelpbjft of bars, according! to .Jtl^ received by government hoISi , yesterday. It appears tin-. ,.ty at'plftiefltthat the dbllaf Value automobile* will teach $540,000,000, hlch was th« approximate Value of Cars exported in 1620. The falling off ftf foreign derrfshd has not been specially heavy,, but seefrta due to the tfej>rassl6ri abf&ad( which followed the •lump of last fall In this country. Th« flgUrlM'fdr the yea'r, so far, ,do Hiflit srittW; HoW many cars were shipped lrt''the fdHSliof- parts for assembling abroad.! T^ffttrfettd toward operation of 1 fictorlen by American corporations in the foreign ' eoiifltfles Is growing, ac* cot-ding to federal officials, and this' is tru« 6'f mabhinery and other mantt- factured products as Well as automobiles. Labor is cheaper in'the for* «i|n nations and American machinery fetid methods ar« used. 'Labot; eJhployea In the foreign branches fit: American corporations, e<Hfl|*etes only with a part of labor in America'Which produces goods for ex- j$|t, tffc«i6S'dlhg to W. W. Husband, assistant secretary of labor. He added 'that goods produced by this Iab6r were, iibt likely to come back into the United States to compete with prod- Hots produced by highly-paid workers In this cbiitttry, |Jn some Itfstahces, factories owned by American Arms in foreign countries pay the .same wage scale as here. It is' maintained by" some authorities that even with the high rate of wages, flrkmen highly-trained and hlghly- , can turn pilt products at a lower Be by means of mass production than is possible abroad, even with Wages far 16wer. Manufacturers are taking far more pains now, it Is said by departmental authorities, to fulfill the preferences of foreign buyers in the matter of body designs and coloring and upholstery. George .F. Viault of the automotive division of the department of commerce, points out that foreign makers are making 'fevery effort to capture the ^,/r'ii^e in their own countries, and are '' following their local trends closely and are taking the business that formerly went to American concerns, except in the case ,of those who are paying strict' attention to those trends. One such trend is the demand In countries which have cars -with right- hand drive. In some countries, according to Mr. Viault, the Importation of left-hand drive cars is prohibited. Another trend noted is a constant do- crease in the use of solid tires on trucks. Machinery exports are holding up remarkably well and foreign demand for foodstuffs, especially wheat, is ex' peeled to increase, because of the unfavorable crop conditions existing in •ome foreign countries. Some merchants are advocating increased tourist traffic abroad on the part of Americans, saying that much of the money spent by travelers comes back to this country in payment for American exports.

It won accompanied by letters from Hardy^ and Harold D. Jacobs. Should Mr. Hoover accept, it will be his first speech-in Pittsburgh smco he became president, and it will be regarded as of political significance, coming at a time when his campaign for renomlnatlon will be getting well under way.

Easy to keep ^ hands lovely "REAL FOLKS" Headliner M ISS VIRGINIA FARMER says that she has learned a delightfully simple way to keep her hands soft and smooth and she wants to tell you about it. You know,' she plays the part of Aunt Martha Thompkina in the popular radio program ''Real Folks" which is broadcast every Monday night at 9:30 over station WJZ or KDKA. Probably you've heard her friendly voice over the air. Now try her beauty suggestion: Miss Farmer says: "I have found that there is nothing better than,plain 'Vaseline' Petroleum Jelly to keep my hands in perfect condition. A light film of it applied after washing the hands is usually sufficient, but in case of chapping or special dryness I advise you to use it more generously at night and wear cotton or silk gloves to bed. "Even one such treatment make the hands wonderfully soft and smooth. 'Vaseline' Jelly is fine for the manicure, too—keeps the cuticle smooth and unbroken. Do try it."
