After Algona-had made five scores, Clarion settled down and held them, scoreless for the rest of the game. Cayou for the locals pitched a good game until the unlucky seventh when Clarion scored' their winning runs. He retired to right field and Overmycr finished out the Inning. Cayou went into the box again in 'the eighth and finished the game with no more runs chalked up against him. Each team, made two errors. Aigona was without the services of Hill at short stop and Scanlan at third. Their places were tak'en by Balrd of Corwith and Behnke of Whlttemore.

The lotp-prtced automobile tiai brought greater opportunity and added hourt of recreation, to million! of mew and women. B ECAUSE the automobile is such an important factor in the lives and prosperity of so many people, the purpose of the Ford Motor Company is something more than the mere manufacture of a motor car. There is no service in simply setting up a machine or a plant and letting it turn out goods. The service extends into every detail of the business — design, production, the wages paid and the selling price. All are a part of the plan. The Ford Motor Company looks upon itself as charged with making an automobile that will meet the needs of millions of people and to provide it at a low price. That is its mission. That is its duty and its obligation to the public. The search for better ways of doing things is never-ending. There is cease- le«8, untiring effort to find new methods "'*• ft ' fi '" . that wflj save steps and mcnt In the methods of the day before. Hard work usually finds the way. Once it was thought impossible to caul gray iron by the endless chain method. All precedent was against it and every previous experiment had failed. But fair prices to the public demanded that wasteful methods be eliminated. Finally tha way was found. Abetter way of making axle shafts saved thirty-six million dollars in four years. A new method of cutting crankcases reduced the cost by $500,000 a year. Tho perfection of a new machine saved a, similar amount on such a little thing one bolt.
