REGISTER STAR-NEWS S •tndnskr, O., Mon., Dee. 19, 195S AUTO OFFICIAL SAYS NO LIMIT IN CONSUMPTION DETROIT. Dec. 19 (INS) — James J. Nance, president of the Automobile Manufacturers Assn. says that "perhaps" the only Umtt to the number of motor vehicles thia nation can'use "is the amount of good highway mileage we are able and willing to provide." Nance's statement was in the way of an advance rebuttal to an ticipated claims that the "satura tion point" has been reached in pas.senger cars and trucks due to part to this year's record out put. According to the latest estimates Nance said production this year will total 9,225,000 vehicles, of which 7,975,000 will be passenger cars. This exceeds the previous all time high of 8,003,056 vehicles pro duced in 1950. The AMA president — who also is chief executive of Studebaker Packard Corp. — said he may ex pect to hear some new variations on that old theme, "the saturation point," adding: "That theme is as Old as the nutomobile itself. In 1908 when we had less than 200,000 motor vehicles registered in the U. S,, one of the partners of the banking house of .T. P. Morgan declared that "the saturation point" had been reached. Nance cited other warnings, in eluding one in 1921 by the famed economist Roger Babson that the ration couldn't possibly operate more than 12 million cars unless We could find some fuel other than gasoline. "We now have more than 61 miU| Hon vehicles," Nance declared. "And the 46'4 billion gallons of ffasoline they burned in 1955 would fill a canal 20 feet wide and 18 feet deep from Portland. Maine, to Portland, Oregon . . asaLks Episcopal Bishop Issues Christmas Message^ For 1955 The Rt. Rev. Henry Knox Sherill, New York City, presiding Bishop for the Episcopal Church, has issued the following Christmas message for 1955: "The most significant events in our lives are given. We have nothing to say about our birth, our natural endowments, our initial environment. Unless we take a responsibility which does not bfilong to us, death comes iif on us without our knowing the number of our days. The test of life is the way we meet and accept these given circumstances. "The deepest note of true religion is the giveness of God. Ye have not chosen me ... I have chosen you. We show the quality of our faith by our response. "So for the true understanding of Christmas the emphasis must be upon the fact, God so loved the world that He gave. The gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ. "God's blessings come not as a result of our own wisdom, creativeness, or worthiness. The Initiative is His. God so IOVQ^. "So at this time with humble, thankful, and joyous hearts we receive the Lord .Jesus Christ. "How silently, how silently, •tie wondrous gift is given!
