American Honda Motor Co., Inc., a subsidiary of the world's largest manufacturer of motorcycles, will operate a Midwest parts warehouse in Racine beginning Feb. 1. The announcement was made jointly by Robert H. Hansen of 700 S. Ohio St., district manager of American Honda's Great Lal<es area, and Satoshi Okubo, treasurer for the Japanese parent firm, Honda Mol'or Co. Hire Staff of Six Okubo recently spent a day in Racine accompanied by ;Moitsuo Kumagai, head of I Honda's Parts Division, to Ihire personnel and look over 'the warehouse at 252.3 Eaton jAve. I I Okubo said the operation; initially would be staffed byi six persons working under; Raleigh Trimble, warehouse! manager, who has been transferred from American Honda's main warehouse in Los Angeles, also the site of the American firm's headquar-" ters. Okubo said Honda an-' ticipated hiring seven more persons sometime in the fall. Honda, which produces 90,000 motorcycles monthly (with a capacity of 1 every 7 seconds), employs 6,000 at its three plants on Japan's main island of Honshu. The company's gross sales rose from $136.5 million in 1960 to $200 million last year. Pre-tax profits increased from $14.2 million to $22 million. From modest beginnings in' 1948, Honda has emerged to world leadership in its field. The man behind this achievement is Soichiro Honda, who after World War II saw that there existed a great vacuum in the field of motorized two- wheel transportation. With capital of only $2,700, Honda founded the now world-known Honda Research Institute in Hamanatsu-shi, 150 miles south of Tokyo, to design and develop his motorcycles. Production began two years later. Introduced in 1959 In 1959, American Honda was formed and the full line of Honda machines were introduced to U. S. dealers. Honda also has a warehouse in West Germany and franchised dealers throughout Europe. Hansen, at whose urging Honda agreed to set up a —Journal-Times Photo Parts for Japanese-made motorcycles, such as the one shown above, will be stored in a warehouse serving the Midwest at 2523 Eaton Lane. Robert H. Hansen of 700 S. Ohio St., center, named district manager of the American Honda Motor Co., Inc. Great Lakes area, discusses the operation with Satoshi Okubo, left, treasurer, and Moitsuo Kumagai, Parts Division manager of the Japanese parent firm, Honda Motor Co. The warehouse will not store assembled motorcycles. Our Business Is Motors and We Know Our Business 542-546'/2 Store St ME 4-5889 warehouse for parts in Ra- Icine, said the 14 models of two-wheelers have been de; signed to appeal as an economical means of transportation, not just for sports. He attributes Honda's success to this and points out that models are priced in a range of $245 to $665 (f.o.b.) and feature gas economy up to '200 miles per gallon, electric •starters and smooth running engines. 30% Young Workers Won't Have Diplomas WASHINGTON — According to present estimates, 30 per cent of the young people entering the United States labor force in the 1960s will lack high school educations. And 2,500,000 will not even have completed the eighth grade. Hess Bros. Buy Fox ke Plant, Expect Expansion to Hire 60 The Fox Ice Co. plant at 724 Racine St., erected 42 years ago, has been purchased from the Fox Products Corp. (formerly Fox Ice Co.) by Hess Bros. Meats for conversion to cold storage and meat processing facilities. It will be known as Hess Bros. Ice & Cold Storage Plant. Hess Bros, owns four of the five Piggly Wiggly stores in Racine, shares in the operation of the fifth and will own the Piggly Wiggly included in Terry's Discount City, a shopping center under construction on Durand Ave. west of Lathrop Ave. In addition, the firm owns two Piggly Wiggly stores in Kenosha and plans to build two more there this year. Robert C. Hess, head of Hess Bros, sales and store planning, said the conversion will begin immediately and eventually mean the addition of about 60 employes in the Hess Bros, operation. Now Employ Five Hess, who will manage the facility, said the present five Fox employes will be retained. He said the plant's ice operation will continue and be expanded to include ice vending machines on parking lots at Hess Bros. Piggly Wiggly supermarkets in Racine and Kenosha. The ice company building is a single-story structure containing about 23,000 square feet of floor space. Hess said part of the plant will be remodeled as a two- story section containing 250,000 cubic feet of freezer space. Also planned is another section of 65,000 cubic feet for storage at low but above freezing temperatures. Hess said that about 5,600 square feet will be used in the handling and processing of meats sold through the Racine and Kenosha stores. Hess Bros, currently has much of this work done outside Racine. Hess Bros, also plans to begin a wholesale meat division to service restaurants, taverns and other meat merchants in the Racine-Kenosha area. The 250,000 cubic foot section is expected to be operating within two to three months, the 65,000 cubic foot area "within a year" and the handling - processing section in about two years, Hess said. Earl H. Hess is president of Hess Bros. Willard B. Hess Sr. is general manager and Robert Hess secretary-treasurer. Cut Ice from River The Fox Ice Co. had its beginnings in Racine 84 years ago as the Fox Lime & Stone Co., although ice didn't enter the picture until 1893, when the firm began to sell ice cut from the Root River and from' its quarry. The quarry w^ located at the present site oj- the Rapids Drive-NorthwesN em Ave. junctioti. ' About 1910, the name of the firm was changed to Fox Ice Co. The Racine St. structure was built in 1920, the year Stephen P. Fox, grandson of the company's founder, Conrad Fox Sr., joined the firm. Over the years, the firm had also been involved in the goal and soft drink businesses. The diversification ;led to the name Fox Products Co. Stephen P. Fox, who headed the firm many years and was president as the plant was sold, has been in ill health and suffered a stroke about two months ago. He was taken to the veterans' hospital at Wood last week for treatment and convalescence. Mrs. Fox said her husband's health was a major factor in his decision to sell. Doering Jewelry Names Alfred Sorenson Manager Smith Jewelry Co. 37 years ago. Previously, he had been employed by the Smith firrn for 20 years. S. H. Doering said other officers of the firm are alsp continuing. They are Curtis E. Skinner, vice president, and Mrs. S. H. Doering, secretary- treasurer. Alfred P. Sorenson has been named manager of the Doering Jewelry Co., 411 Main St. He succeeds S. H. Doering, who has stepped down from active service at the store. Doering will continue as company president. Sorenson had been a Doering employe since Doering Jewelry purchased Sorenson the Hiram J. CUT MACHINE COST Australian scientists have developed an $18,000 cobalt- ray therapy machine that compares with $100,000 imported equipment. ADULT EDUCATION OPPORTUNITIES in Racine Racine is fortunate in having classes for adults in a wide range of subjects. These include both formal and informal activities. Continued study helps to increase professional competency, to prepare for new positions, and to enrich personal lives. It is a systematic way to learn about new developments in science and industry. And it is an interesting way to enjoy and learn about art, music and other cultural subjects. Classes also help with the practical problems of every day living at home and work, and in the enjoyment of leisure hours. Many agencies in Racine are contributing to lifelong learning.
