BRIGHT SUNNY DAYS
THIRD LARGEST INDUSTRY IN UNITED STATES
- Some thoughts in connection with the Salem automobile show
are .pertinent, i,
The show will be at the Armory, tomorrow, Thursday and Fri
day three days.
. It will be a worth while exhibition.
It will show something of the progress of what is now the third
largest industry in the United States though it is only about 22
Many of us remember the first automobile in Salem somewhere
around 1901 ; it was bought for John II. Albert, one of our youngest
Salem boys; that is, one of our youngest in spirit.
Some of us remember the first auto taxis on Fifth Avenue in
New York, about 1900; and they would now attract a crowd any
where in this country for their miaintness and awkward appearance.
By 1905 there were only 150,000 automobiles in the whole
United States. !
Fifteen years later we have passed the 7,000,000 mark.
The so-called "saturation point" is away in the future if it
ever will be reached,
Automobiles are in the 'consumption" class they are used,
worn out and replaced; like clothing is.
Production does not equal demand now in this country and the
foreign market is only a drop in the bucket of what it will even
tually be. ;

Man power is increased ten fold.
Production is trebled, quadrupled ; and the idea ithat the buying
of automobiles and auto trucks takes money out of the country is
expioaea; tney bring money here, by conserving man power and in
creasing, production. ,

The Statesman wishes to express its appreciation of the abl
assistance of Lew A. Cates of the B & C Motor Company in preparing
much of, the automobile news contained in this issue. The Salem
Automobile Association selected Mr. Cates as chairman of its publicity
committee for the Auto Show, and that he has done his work com
petently and well goes without saying. Mr. Cates is a former news
paper man and a Jive wire.

The evangelist cited scripture to
prove that faith was essential to suc

from life t0 accentuate the truth of
his quotations. He pointed out the
fact that a great many prayers were
not answered because there was no
foundation in the way of a promise
in the Bible that prayers with cer

He held that for prayers to be an
