It. is often said that to Inform

it is not possible now to keep a
youth, from vice by total ignor

The longer he is kept thus
hoodwinked, the less he will see

"Showing the young gentleman

F. L. Maytag, founder of the May
tag company and chairman of the
board ot directors, he recently an
nounced that his company would
increase the output of their pac
tory at Newton, Iowa, by build
ing, and equipping a six-story ad
dition to the present factory.
Tis announcement came after
several months of careful plan
ning and investigating, not only
conditions In the present factory,
but the outside conditions as well.
Mr.' Maytag reports that In the
face of the present shortage of
machines and the rate at. which
the sales organization ia develop-:
ing. it would be unwhe to delay J
any longer or to consider a smal
ler addition than this to present
manufacturing facilities. The en
tire output of the plant is con
centrated on the .manufacture of
tbe Maytag CyralVani machine.
which ia easily distinguished from
other machines by having a cast
Mr. Maytog further, states that
the Maytag sales organization for
the past ninety days has been sel
ling on an average of two hun
dred machines a day. The new
addition will be eighty-four feet
wide by two hundred-thtrteen feet
long and will be six stories high.
The construction wlll .be of re-
enrorced concrete throughout.
well lighted and well equipped In
every feature. The total floor
space of the new building will ex
ceed a hundred thousand square
feet, which brings the total fac
tory floor space up to over half
a. million square feet or approxi
mately twelve and a half acres.
Active preparations for the begin
nlng of tbe building will be start
ed Immediately and it .is hoped
that it will be possible to occupy
-all or at. least a part of the new
addition by the later part of October.
The new addition will necessi
tate the employment of approxi
mately 800 more men. Over 1200
men are now employed.
For the past three years the
Maytag company has held tbe pos
ition of world .leadership in the
