An ad in Business Week Magazine, pointing up Michigan as a state where industry can prosper, marks two full years of Consumers Power Co.'s campaign to bring in new industry. The company has been purchasing big space monthly in the only campaign in behalf of the state's industrial and economic development. Consumers Power recently announced that it will continue such national advertising through 1952. It headlines the 64 per cent out-state growth in power demand, but also features major cities and communities. Great Lakes ore boats have moved within 1,500,000 tons of the goal set at the beginning of the season. Through Monday they had carried 88,559,319 gross tons.

E. Barit, president of Hudson Motor Car. Co., is optimistic about general business prospects for 1952. But he has frankly joined the ranks of car makers who feel there will be a shortage of cars next year. Preliminary to the introduction of a line of new cars, Barit told a gathering at the Grosse "In an inflationary period when there are , deflationary pressures there is need for careful planning to protect our investments, "Barit I-1 " said. "A YEAR Barit curtailed. And this prompted the fear of scarcities. "The arguments were valid then, and they are today. What is happening now is merely a postponement of what was to have happened. 'We can expect as we go into 1952 that we will pass from the transition period of 1951 to a large defense production period in 1952. "From the deep uncertainty about unemployment we will go into a period of sustained employment and a clearer economic period." THE SHOCK OF unemployment to thousands of worker3 who were laid off in a period of defense production preparation, Barit said, was great not only to those idled but to thousands who wondered when their turn would come. The shock also was transmitted to thousands of private businesses, he added. "However, as defense production gains momentum, we can jxpect better conditions generally," he said. "Apparently 1,000,000 cars a quarter is as much as we can expect in 1952. That's a sharp curtailment from production this year. "I don't hold with the arguments of those who say that with 40,000,000 cars on the road there will be little demand. "People will not willingly give up their automobiles which are such a necessary part of their living. As a plain matter of fact, we are going to be short of cars Production Figures Departing from custom, Chrys ler Corp. announced that hereafter it would publish its monthly production figures. Its shipments of cars in No vember, including military and other Government passenger cars and Dodge trucks, showed sharp declines from output of November a year ago. Plymouth, with a shipment of 40,202 cars in the month, was down sharply from the 74,431 shipped in the same month in 1950. For the January-November period, however, Plymouth turned out 591,341 units compared with 550,342 for the comparable period in 1950. DODGE PASSENGER cars totaled 22,108 compared with 38,-439 in November, 1950. DeSoto output was 9,549 compared with 15,735 and Chrysler shipments were 11,876 compared with 19,285 ifor November a year ago. Dodge track shipments were up slightly for the month of November over the same month last year. The 11-month period figures showed shipments were 155.197 ! compared .with 107,799 for 950. Overall production was up o,527 units over last year. GM Output Down uenerai Motors production m November was 154,076 passenger cars and 36,866 trucks compared with 215,963 passenger cars and 40,747 trucks in the same month in peak 1950. Production for the 11 months to date is tentatively estimated at 2,639,781 compared with 3,-844,476 for the same period last year. All GM cars for the month of I November and the 11 months to Dec. 1 were below production figures for 1950 comparable periods :with the exception of GMC Truck and Coach division which turned out 10,052 units in November compared with 9,916 in the same month last year.

Friday at Chrysler Engineering Laboratories, 12800 Ocland, Highland Park. : Wing have not yet been approved by the OPS but wholesale prices range from $1,400 to $1,700. The company reported spending more than $10,000,000 developing the car, the first Willys passenger car since 1942 when Willys went almost exclusively into the field of Jeep production. Pomte Yacht Club tftat ne be lieved the penod of uncertainty and confusion which marked 1951 would change to a year of production and high employment. AGO we were told the Govern ment was going to spend a lot of money. This, of course, would stimulate inflation. There would be higher wages and higher costs. Production schedules, we were told, were to be in 1952, in my opinion."

U.S.Hunts Old Autos for Scrap WASHINGTON () Govern-' ment officials said they will start scouring the Nation's auto "graveyards" to collect scrap metal for starved steel mills. The National Production Authority told an emergency conference on the scrap situation that an order will be issued this week requiring auto wreckers to clear their yards of ancient cars. More than 1,500,000 tons of scrap should become available for stel production during the winter through this method, NPA officials said. OTHERWISE the special meeting of 21 keysteelmen and Government officials failed to produce any announced concrete development. Manly Fleischmann defense production administrator, told the steelmen at the outset that "if private efforts" fail to increase the flow of scrap "the Government will take on the job and it will not be comfortable at all." He reported that a check of the country's 78 largest mills showed they had a maximum of 21 days' supply of scrap on hand, instead of the eight weeks' stockpile considered normal for this time of year. He added that some mills face a shutdown unless they get scrap, which is necessary in steel production. REPRESENTATIVES of steel mills and scrap producers attending the meeting recommended that the Government survey the possibility of utilizing old cargo ships, abandoned railroad lines, old bridges, and similar potential sources of scrap. NPA officials said their proposed order to auto wreckers will require a turnover every 90 days of all autos they hold which were manufactured before 1946 and trucks weighting tons or less. They estimated that about 7,- 000,000 old hulks are in these "graveyards," of which 60 to 70 per cent are more than five years old. Livestock BY rSMA rATTT.K Salable reieint8 45(1.
