Having made their decision, it was
shown, both Mr. Ford and his son ro-
lus< d to camoufiage It behind a,
swivel chair com m ission carrying
boo s and spurs.
This subject, the introduction uf
which has been aw aited ev er since
th e trial opened, did not develop along
th e hues w hich had been generally ex
Mr. Ford's inclination to
shoulder lull respousibility, his sta te

In the factory and his revelation oi
the fact thai Edsel Ford turned down
several offers of a com mission, d is
arm ed criticism . The charges, spread
during a political cam paign, and re
cently repeated on (he door of the
U nited S tates senate, to the effect th a t
th e young president of the Ford Mo’ur
com pany had shirked his duty w ere so
fully re tire d that Tribune counsel did
s o t pursue the point.
It w as the drat tim e th a t a full ex
planation of the facts In connection
w ith Edsel F ord's w ar work has been
m ade public and It was easily 'h e
fe a tu re of the eleventh .w eek of the
H enry Ford spent seven days on the
w itness stand and of this tim e he
gave less th an two hours to his own
law yers. As long as counsel for The
T ribune was ham m ering him Mr. Ford
sa t quietly In th e w itness chair an
sw ering the constant fire of questions
w ith g reat patience. Dut the in stan t
h is own law yers took him In hand his
a ttitu d e changed. H e became»“ self-
conscious and diffident. H e would not
accept Jh e efforts of his counsel to
provide him with an opportunity to
reveal th e full extent of his p atriotic
w ork during the war, his h u m an itari
an views, or his advanced ideas of the
relations which should exist betw een
capital and labor.
“It Is all In the records,” said Mr.
Ford. “I have told It all h ere once.”
,He avoided, w ith care, anything that
verged on boasting. H e would not
even describe th e ex ten t of th e w ar
w ork w hich his factories did and when
record breaking perform ances In the
production of m unitions was m ention
ed he declared, “we did all we could,
le t It go at that. I w ant to forget
all about 1L I feel ju st as th e sol
diers feel. I don’t w ant to ta lk about
m y w ar w ork.”
T he w itness did, how ever, a fte r be
in g pressed, explain th a t his son had
bought out th e m inority stockholders
of tl e Ford Motor com pany because
th e se ln to e s ts had Insisted on Mr.
Ford squeezing the last dollar out ot
ih e public, the governm ent, the work,

so th a t he could carry out bis Ideas
of th e distribution of profits to em
