FEBRUARY 26, 1D30. THE DAIL,Y COURIER, CONNER! jf'.VTLJ, }, PA, MOTOR TRUCK NOW BIG FARM FACTOR Hard-Surfaced Roads Facilitate Marketing of Wheat in Ohio. (!*r*pir*d by th» United B'.ntt« I«pnrtn«flt of Agrrloultut*.) In Orlo, after hard-su-faced highways ht TB become coirm.on, the u»« of the motor truck in t \klng wheat from th* field to the country elevator has became a very Important factor in the nenoendous after-barvewt congestion at country and terminal ela vators, 9(.yn Ctiarlce M Fritz, grain exchange supervisor of the Chicago office of the grain f u t u -es administration of the United Stxtea Department of Agriculture, following a survey of the devclopraen- of recent years J i harvesting am! marketing the Ohio wheat crop. Permit UM of Trucks. "The hard-surfaced hlgiwuys which have bf en built throughout the countryside,' says Mr. Grltz. "permit the use of motor trucks for hiullng wheat from tl c farm, which not only shortens the time required foi hauling but also penults talcing large' loads. Perhaps the longest haul now required at various Ohio points to move the farmer 1 ! wheat Is about eight miles. With a horse-drawn vehicle this trip would .oave required the greater part 01' a day, iuid the average load would hive rirged from about 150 buehels iti h i l l j country to abour 100 trtishels on ROOI! level roads. Under those conditions the weather was an Important factor in the movement, is wheat was hauled to market gene-ally In fair weathc - when the rond i were dry. tTnder p-esent-day condl ions thp trip 1,3 mar!«' by motor trnck in about two and onp half hours, nnd loads ranging fro n 55 to 145 bushels arc hauled regard!MIS of weather conditions." Truck* for Delivery. Mr. Frltx has obsencd a growing tenden y among Ohio farmers to sell their vheiu f. o. b. thr farm, and to make purchases of fe-tllfoser, lime, and ml ted fe«»d on terms Including delivery it the farm. In rrder to innke such deliveries, Ohio e'evntors ha\e ejnlpp»d trucks for delUery purpowes, charge 1 ! being fixed on a cost basis and incorporated as a part of the Bales contract, tit rates less than the farmer can transport snch commodities Vroia elevator to fnrm. The farmer can now arrange with a local elevator relative to dati of threshing aod tlie elevatrs will supply motor trttclcs which will be In the wheat flfid »t the beginning of operations. By this Method tho sntlre lot of grain Is moved to the local elevator In less than a single da/, Comracrdnl trucking companiest also participate In the wheat movement In the rush season, and wheat is carr ed until midnight, and receiving nnd elevation taken cnre of. "Obviously such an extrea ely rapid movement of grain from tountry to elcvato'," says Fritz, "Is a seven strain upon the equipment and storag- facilities of the local elevators The spewl at vhlch the railroads toiU y transport wheat during the 'row crop' movemsnt Is also a substfintla fnctor in tl'f enormous ac- cmnul itic-ns of n h f n t at terminals d u r i n g the a f l ^ r h!^r^ ^s t rush move- TDPnt. , "In \'3 past." Mr Fritz reports, *'lho i nlroa'Jh' box tar t quiptiient was ba^cd on a 60,000 jiourn capacity car. The i'1-csent car has a capacity of ftillier 0.000 of 100000 pounds. The use o ' t h f » 00,000 pound capacity car establ shed a custom aoiong shippers and receivers of loading 1,100 bushels of reU winter wheat 'or a carload. Receivers and mills are being urged by tlu railroads to use the larger units, for very few 60,KK)-pound cars semal i that can be tised for grain Hhiprnjnt. Consequently, the ca,rload Is increasing from .1,10). to 1,406 and 1,000 bushels. This Ir crease In car capac ty has a tendern-y to increase tho total number of bushels In the dally receipts at terminals, while ths numb'-r of cars received may not denote a material incn ase over the dally carlot receipts of former years."

HE PI "RCHASE of nn antomobne involrea a consiilerable amount of money and it should be carefully considered from all angles I ef ore a final decision is made. The t aloe of the car to yon depends on the vah e bnilt into it at the factory, how much extra yon pay the dealer for dia* tributio a, selling, financing and qcceflaqjries and what it will coat to operate- and main* tain the car after purchase, Ench of these factors, aa it relates to the Ford car, ia frankly explained below. Eeo Tiomy In production A HE F KO CAR ifl made economically because or* the efficiency of Ford production method«. The money eared tarongh this cfficien -y is put back into the car in improved craality of material and in greater care an 1 accuracy in manufaclnring. The constant effort is to eliminato waste and find wiiys to make each part better and better i ithout increasing cost--frequently at lowe "ed cost. Because of Ford economies in large produr don and because the Ford organization oj crates on a low-profit margin, the price y in pay for the car is mtich less than it wou d be under any other conditions. Yet it brings you many unuanal features of construction nnd performance. At li-ast $75 extra -value is represented alone : iy the Triplex shatter-proof glass windsV ield, the .Rustless Steel, the four Houdadlo double-acting hydj-auiic shock absorbers, and the fire steel-ejxike wheels. The u msunlly large number of ball and roller bearings and the extras! re nse of fine Bl'.ecl forgings instead of eislings or stampings are additional f eatares t tat reflect the high qnality built into cv :ry part of the car. Throtjghoot, it is a VE lue far above the price you paf. Lou? dealer charges THE SAME PRINCIPLES of r-JStiesacy «d economy that charaeterLne tiie ntanii ac- tore of the Ford cor are applied ale to distribntion. Obvionsty it won Id do the public little good to sare in productio t if titeae savings were sacrificed later in ex- waaive costs of selling, financing rail ooceiiBories. llm Ford dealer, therefore, operate on the same low-profit margin as the i ml Motor Company, his discount or com ais- sion being (he lowest of any cutomo ilc dealer. He does a good business bee: use he makes a small profit on many t lies instead of a large profit on fewer u lea.

The money you pay for a Ford goes' inti value in the car. It is not wasted in high denier charges. costs IT IS IMPORTAJfT to remember that the / cost of yonr automobile is not the first coat only, but the total cost after months and years of service. Here again there ia ' a decided «aving when you bny a Ford. The cost of operation and tip-keep ia lower because of simplicity of design, the high quality of material, and the reduction of friction and wear through unusual accuracy in manufacturing and assembling. Tho reliability and longer life of the car contribute to its low depreciation per year vdf use. The intelligent, painstaking service noi- dered by Ford dealers is vender clove factory supervision and is a factor in the low HP-keep co«t of the Ford. All labor is billed at a flat rule and replacement parts are always available at low prices through Ford dealers in every section of the United States. In two, three or five years, depending on how much yon drive, the saving in operating and maintaining a new Ford will amount to even more than the saving on the first cost of the car.
