Library Notes By Roger W. Babson BABSON PARK, Mass.,—The automobile industry is in a favored position today.~The NR£ should be a distinct help to this huge business, which in 1932 accounted for one-fifth of our total industrial -volume. A hugh potential demand has heen built up since '29, Sixty-two per cent of all new cars are bought by persons with yearly incomes of less than $3.000, and 89 per cent of all cars sell for less than $750 wholesale. Thus, any increase in the purchasing power of the lower paid classes will be especial beni- fit to the automobile manufacturer. Moreover, higher farm prices and higher commodity prices of all "kinds should increase the demand for trucks as well as. passenger cars. America's Largest Industry In 1895, there were four automo- the last thirty years. The automo- \TT\ A f*i \ bile hag become such a large f » c " iNlV/X V-rOCl tor in the business volume of the ' United states that there can be no general prosperity without the motor industry taking part." The automobile industry ranks as one of our leading employers of labor. Motor corporations employ ever three million people as mec- the United 8,000 people The trying experience of the past two or three years have possibly been the cause of a more serious note in the new books this 'all. Many of them discuss prob- ems of adjustment to new condi- :ions, while others are concerned with the effect of these times- on .he oncoming generation. Books of this nature have been unusually popular at the Ames public ii- brary during the past few weeks. "Time to Live" by Gove Hambidge is one of the best of tfiese new titles. In this modestly autobiographical essay, the author relates how he earned "time to live" by cutting down on working hours, living in the country, and selecting wisely the employments of leisure hours —^gardening, simple games and sports, handicrafts and reading. The New York Times says of it, "The book is wise in practical matters, stimulating in its ideas, suggestions and arguments, and inspiring in the poetic beauty of its leisure. It is the kind of book of which there is much need in these troubled times and in the uncertainties that befog -the future." Another is ' ? God Lights a Candle" by. Anne Shannon Monroe, whose "Singing in the Rain" is a perennial in all libraries. Still an other similar volume is "The Phil osophy of Solitude" by John Cow per Powys, a book written for dwellers in our American cities to hell, them develop "a continuity of secret happiness in defiance o: biles registered in States. In 1900 only owned motor cars. By 1929 the number of automobile owners had reached 24,136,000. Last year automobile registration totalled 20,903,000. Naturally 'the number of cars manufactured annually had a corresponding increase. Production of passenger cars jumped from 4,1 192 in 1900 to 5,621.000 in 1929, but dropped to 1,186.0CQ in 1932. This represented an annual production value of more than $3,500,000,000 in 1929 against less than $5,000,000 in 1900. The motor industry played a large part in our tremendous industrial growth of 1 Commodity Gasoline Rubber Lead ' Steel Tin Aluminum Copper world's fair stopped in Nevada Perhaps the most importan Thursday for a visit with her sis »er, MMrs. p.

Dr. Schweitzer is an Alsatian medical .missionary who renounced .the rewards of his great gifts as philosopher, theolo gian, organist and writter to mini ster to -the sick natives of equator jal Africa, alternating his service there with trips to Europe to earn money thru lectures and organ recitals to carry on the work of his hospital at I&mbarene.

K f. i f * * ''muni f nlll Ji n «« net income of JfM,2f>7 The above table--clearly. shows that prices for automobiles must be advanced as the'administration -works toward the 1926 level. There has been 'an increase of over 130 per cent in crude rubber prices. Tires have already jumped 25 per cent. If crude rubber approaches anywhere near 1926 levels, motor car makers must pass on the sharp increase in tire costs to the automobile purchaser. Make your tire replacements now, therefore, before another price jump takes place. Tin, copper, and lead are all used -extensively in automobiles. Roughly, they have already advanced 60 tip-70 per cent. The auto manufacturer can not absorb these sharp ' increases in raw material costs. This--is especially true in the low priced field where profit margins are thin. Consequently, if the administration's program is carried out, retail prices of automobiles and all accessories must advance. My advice to those of .you whose cars will have to be replaced soon is to turn them in now and save money, especially in view of the new proposed code. Big Potential Market Statistics show that the average life of a car today is 7 1-3 years. On the basis of 1932 registrations, this means a replacement demand of 2,800,000 new cars annually. Actually, however, there were nearly seven million vehicles ready to be junked at the end of 1932 and during 1932 about three million automobiles were scrapped. In recent months, manufacturers, dealers, and salesmen have been going full tilt. But in spite of this feverish activity during June and July, automobile sales were only at the •ate of 75 per cent of our annual replacement requirements. With the expected increase in public ?urchasing power and with the general trend of business activity ipward, t (eel that prospects for he auto and related industries are good. However, this is not written n favor- of motor stocks, but rath- r to tip off readers that higher osts mean higher prices and now s the tim;i to turn in your old car. Business, as registered by the Rabsonchart, now stands at 36 er cent, above a year ago and on- y 18 per cent, below normal.

One out of every eleven gainful'work- ers in the United States is employed in the automobiles-industry. Moreover; these four million em- ployes are scattered thruout every state in the Union. Wages paid in motor vehicle factories are among the highest in- industry today. However, under the NRA labor costs all along the line should be somewhat . higher. Consequently cars will soon -be marked up in price and dealers under the code will cease to bid against one an oiher for used cars. So I advise you to turn in your old cars today Higher Prices.Coming In addition to being one of the largest employers of labor, the automobile industry is the heaviest consumer of several.leading commodities. The prices of these raw materials have ...advanced harply in-the last few months. It is the prposes of the administration to raise commodity prices to the 1926 level. The prices of the principal raw materials used in the manufacture of automobiles are still well below this level. The- following table shows, not only the percentage of several commodities used in the automobile industry, but. the price advance since- March, and the price advance necessary to meet the 1926 level: Per cent'used by Per cent advance Per cent advance motor industry since March, necessary to ,1933 reach '26 level (since Mar.

Under provisions' of the textile manufacturers' code, it has been learned, the shirt and overall factories of the two state penal Institutions may be ordered •• to cease commercial production in the near future. Should this occur, members of the state board of control have stated, a problem will be created as to what may be done to employ the *idle hands of 650 convicts, who would be left without employment within' the institutions. The seriousness of the situation was pointed out by Deputy Penitentiary Warden Dan Kavenaugh. "It is not the question with us of getting the keeping the work done, men at the but of institutions busy. WJien men are idle and imprisoned, there exists a situation which is likely to result in riot and disorder. Men are much more easily reformed when they are kept at work than if they are idle," Kavenaugh declared. Finding field's of labor where prisoners do not compete with outside labor is a difficult problem, Kavenaugh explains. At the reformatory the situation has been partially solved thru 'installation of machines to manufacture license plates and highway markers for us? of the state. Farms provide la- for a few additional men. But >y far the greater number, it is be- ieved, will be left idle if the codes are applied to the fields"' of work he prisoners are now employed at. WASHINGTON, <U£> — Electric power generation and distribution is a public business, and when private power interests and the public interest conflict, the public interest must prevail, the Tennessee valley authority declared Friday in an eleven-point statement of policy. The valley authority is a Roosevelt agency created to administer the first of his projects for development of -.great sections of the country. The statement of, policy, made, public by David E. Lllien- thal, director, was ^interpreted as a statement of the administration viewpoint, and as such was regarded as a significant indication of the future federal ttitude towrd public utilities. Although at first power generated In the Tennessee valley will be distributed locally, the authority is prepared to go beyond the limits of the initial area to compete with private interests 'charging unreasonably high rates in regions where he public interest is not adequate- y protected by regulation, the statement made It clear. Furthermore, it was revealed that the authority intends eventually to serve at least one city of more ban 250,00t) population, probably Birmingham. Memphis, Atlanta and Louisville. Thus the Tennessee project be- :omes, in addition to a program 'or development of the entire Tennessee river basin, a means of regulating private power rates ov- r a much wider area. Sale of power may be arranged immediately o cities desiring it, Lilienthal indicated. As the statement of policy was released, word was received that the first stake had been driven, at a river crossing twenty miles above Muscle Shoals, Ala., for a power transmission line between Muscle -Shoals and the proposed Forris dam in Tennessee. The eleven points of power policy are: 1. "The business of generating and distributing electric power is a public business." 2. "Private and public interests in the business of power are of a different kind and quality and should not be confused." 3. "The interest of the public in the widest possible use of power is superior to any private interest. Where the private interest and- this public interest conflict, the public interest must prevail." 4- "Where there is a conflict between public interest- and private interest in power which can be reconciled without injury to the. public interest, such rconcila- tion sould b mad." 5. "The right of a community to own and operate its own electric plant is undeniable." 6. "Serious consideration should be given the fact that certain ac : tions by the authority might have an adverse economic effect upon a privately owned utility, but the most Important considerations 'are the furthering of the public interest in making power available at the lowest consistent financial policy, and with sound the accomplishment of the social objectives which low cost power makes possible." The authority "cannot decline to take action solely on the ground that it might injure privately owned utilities." 7. "To provide a workable and economic basis of operations, the authority plans Initially to serve certain definite regions and to develop its program in those areas before going outside." 8. The initail areas are: The region immediately proximate to the route of the transmission line from Muscle Shoals to Norris dam; the region in proximity to Muscle Shoals, including northern Alabama and northeastern Mississippi; and the region in the proximity of Norris dam' on the Clinch river in Tennessee. Later it is contemplated to include the drainage area of the Tennesse river and Kentucky, Alabama. Georgia and North Carolina. 9. Every effort will be made to avoid construction of duplicate physical facilities or wasteful competitive practices. 10. Accounting must reveal details of costs, and permit compar- ision of operations with privately owned plants, "to supply a 'yardstick' and an incentive to both private and public managers" 11. All accounts and records pertaining to power must be open to public 'inspection. PAGE TBIXB SS599OaBni Murray, Bentley to AttUt in Federal Farm Credit Work W. G. Murray, associate professor of agricultural economics at Iowa State college, and R. C. Beo- tley, of the agricultural economics research staff, have been asked by Henry Morgenthau, jr., to aid in the establishment of the "normal" value of farm land to be used in the refinancing of farm loans under the administrations rc- farm credit program. Murray and Bentley have cently collaborated on several studies on farm mortgages in Iowa. Last winter they published two bulletins on the farm mortgage problem of Iowa. These bulletins •were of a series of publications of the Iowa state 'college d&- panment of agricultural economics on the 4 emergency situation in Iowa.
