Extra shifts are being employed wherever conditions permit, to try to overcome the production losses of the recent strike. Everything is being done to get parts and machines to you. While we and our dealers would like to tell you that this means an immediate end to the shortage of service parts and machines, it is more accurate to say that it means the beginning of the end of it. If illness or bad weather delays you seriously in the Spring, you know how much it throws you off your schedule. The striko has thrown our schedules off balance, too. There are many "chores" wo must do before new machines reach you. Material shortages FORNEY ft LrOFTUS, Prop*. The preliminary chores of getting our plants back into shape for full production ire finished. But disturbances in other industries and resulting material shortages may affect our plans. Light gauge steel sheets, brass and copper, fractional horse power motors, and many other items are all very Bhort. The coal situation may also prove serious—we hope not. Refilling the well Both our dealers and our branches have run dry on parts and new machines. So the big* gest chore is to get their working stocks back to normal. It will take time to till the pipeline to dealers—just as it takes time for you to refill a well or cistern after it has run dry. Stock and display rooms of our dealers represent not one, but ten thousand reservoirs which must ' b« refilled, The most heroic pro­ duction efforts will mean that your local dealer can expect only a Bmnll number of parts and machines at a time. Since we must play fair with all our customers, there will be a sprinkle of parts and machines all over the country—not a downpour in any one section. You will be glad to know that all repair parts production schedules arc far beyond normal. You may be sure that every machine will be shipped to dealers as soon as completed. We do not and will not hold machines off the market. At tho start of tho strike we had on hand at all our factories and branches just 837 tractors of all kinds—less than two days' production—nnd 405ofthese were not completed. Many of those on hand hnd one or more important purts missing—principally radiator cores. Most of the rest represented tho normal daily "float" between the end of the assembly lino and tho shipping platform. Naturally no tractors were made during the strike. What dealers may have for you We can report to you that our current production on TRACTORS is good and wo are shipping at a normal rate. Even BO, there will not be onough to go around. The situation on PLOWS and DISK HARROWS is reasonably good. On COMBINES, MOWERS, HAY RAKES, ONE- MAN HAY BALERS, CORN PICKERS and many other items, our schedules have been seriously disrupted. Wb must in fairness say that many of our customers are likely to be, disappointed on delivery of these machines. On MILKING MACHINES, STATIONARY ENGINES, nnd somo other small units we are hopeful of making practically normal delivery. We know you will understand the reasons why your dealer cannot fill your orders overnight. He would like to givo you tho kind of delivery on machines you would liko to get, but his situation is a difficult one and not of his own making. He is doing the best he can. No cutting corners on quality There is ono thing you can bo absolutely certain about: Wo wilt NOT cut corners on quality in order to increase production in this emergency. For years wo have said: "QUALITY IS THE FOUNDATION OF OUR BUSINESS." Today we say it—and mean it— as much as ever. We know you need *ew machines—and need them badly. But we believe it will pay you to wait just a little while longer if you cannot get all you want immediately. By waiting you can be sure your new equipment will have the quality so rightly associated with INTERNATIONAL HARVESTER for BO many years INTERNATIONAL .! HARVESTER
