In May 1926 the turn out was 74,000 units and in May of the previous year 52,000 units- The record set up last May was bettered by 2000 units during the past February. March in turn was 17,000 units ahead of February, and April with a volume of 155,800 cars and trucks exceeded the March performance by 2,000 units. in view of the high May volume, and the .schedule for June, Mr. Kudsen staled that by the middle of the year the number of new cars built would be welil beyond the three-puar- ter million mark. All production operations of the company have been running at capacity since early in the year, Mr. Knudsen said. He explained that the high May volume was made possible because several of the domestic plants have been expanded, and because a new assembly plant recently opened at Atlanta, (5a., to relieve the other fourteen domestic manufacturing operations got in its full month’s production during May. Another new plant of similar size to the one in Atlanta, recently announced for Kansas City to supply the territory immediately north and west of that city, with a capacity of 350 cars a day, will make possible even greater volume achievements in the future, Mr. Knudsen asserted. “Month by month our sales organization is making increasingly heavy flemands upon the production facilities of the company to provide cars for immediate delivery in the domestic market,’’ Mr. Knudsen said. “More than St) per cent of the May output was absorbed in the United States a- hme despite the fact that the number of units going into the export field was greater than ever before. “We interpret this expansion in volume and sales to a growing public confidence in us and our product. This is our greatest asset, and to the public is due whatever credit may accrue from the new records now being established.” Mr. Knudsen stated that extraordinary achievements of his company may also be taken as a trade index of the country. “The i utomobile is a sensitive barometer of business conditions in every territory where it is marketed in quantity,” he said. “The fact that our sales have been consistently good in every area of the United States indicates the healthful purchasing power of the great mass of people. That means, of course, general distribution of present wealth and a satisfactory future outlook.” The ensemble work as well as the solo work of the members of Gilbert Jaffy’s Orchestra go to make another delightful afternoon of really good music. Mr. Jaffy himself is a gifted violinist, and the other members of the orchestra are also accomplished musicians. The pianist, I am sure, you will remember from last season Miss Gayle Giles of the Giles Trio. On the evening of the fourth day is a lecture which should be of interest to anyone and of special import to the business man—“The Value of Man” by Mr. H. L. Fugleman. Mr, Fugleman is noted for his research in business efficiency and his training of salesman. It sure makes me mad to get a circular letter in a one end open envelope with a one and one-half cent stamp on it, marked ‘Personal.’ Won’t these darn fool t’ellars who try to sell us stuff ever learn that the (Aval War is over.

Assisted by Miss Mary Holdredge, they furnish a whole afternoon of laughs, with a few sighs cast in. These boys can make music* on anything but the garden hose, and if you’d take all their instruments (and they certainly have plenty of them) they would still have their excellent voices and an extensive repertoire of good entertainment. Harold Beil Wright’s story of the Ozark Hills is probably better known by more people than any other American novel. So Premier has brought this year a dramatization of this story to the platform, played by an excellent east. The play has a distinct sentimental appeal t«* everyone. The fifth night marks one of the important features of this year’s program. The Golden Ensemble —no name could better suit the eight singers whose music carries the week’s program to a lofty climax of artistic* accomplishment on the last day. The “Gypsy Caravan” is a musical fantasy, featuring the songs of vagabond land. The lighting effects and clever costuming add much to the atmosphere of the program. Have you ever tried to argue in your own mind the relative value of classic and jazz music? Do not let it worry you again Old man Opera and Young Mr. Jazz settle the question conclusively in the last night’s program.
