And in her heart she felt that land was power, because she trusted acres more than people. Sophistication and recognition were pretty much new to 64-year- old Susan Haughian when she came on a visit to Manhattan Island from Montana. But they weren't as new as she made out.

She was fun to squire around and this was her story: She was one of 16 children born in Ireland and naturally she settled over here in a small cozy place like Montana, it reminded her of home—it was so much bi»- ber. You have to know the people from the old country to understand her land hunger. She and her man—Dan. his name was—started with 40 acres. Family of Pioneers The family did a lot of pioneering way out west where the wind blows free and the animals graze when they can. Susan Is pretty proud of Dan for providing her with the first house in her lifetime that had hot and cold running water and the local definition of central heating. There also were five sons and Jive daughters he gave her. Of ever forget her sixth child, now.known also as Susan and no more her favorite than some of (he others today.

Susan on the cold floor April-June Car Production Is Seen as 'Good' DETROIT W)- Ti , e April-June' quarter of this year may develop into the aulo industry's best production period of 1952. This complete reversal of earlier indications could result from several factors: the revising of tlie defense program making more material available for civilian production; the carrying over into the second quarter of some output volume unfilled in the first quarter and further progress in the industry's copper-saving program. All this is going to be helpful to the auto industry's operations and should ease its unemployment problem. An original maximum quota of about today?
