For most o f the causes of war if

husbands seek divorce and boys start
swinging at another’s jaw.
Nations have the same characteris

at wrong conclusions and anxious to
get revenge nations will continue to
play those same roles.

all people will live according to the
commandment “ Love thy neighbor. ’
How can we expect nations to re

ed for defense hauling along the eos-
tern seaboard. They are tthe motor-
ships Noifolk and Green Island ,two
o f the four 300-foot canal boats built
for Ford in recent years; the tug
Humrick; and the barges Lake Fru-
ment and Lake Farge both 250-foot
cargo vessels which served as steam
ers in trans.Atlantic service during
the first World-War.
These vessels ordinarily are used
to transport raw materials and man
ufactured parts to and from their
home port at the Ford Rouge plant.
They were released for coastwise ser
vice by the company to help ease
the big defense shipping problem fac
ed by the maritime commission. Al
though they will receive their ship
ping orders from the commission the
vessels will be manned by ford crews.
The East Indian largest of the
Ford ocean-going ships is 461 feet
lonlg and displaces 8159 tons. The On_
eida was the first vessel of the Ford
fleet to make a trip to Europe.
Ford officials said the cargo to be
hauled by the five coastwise ships
iwill consist largely o f manganese ore,
sulphur and other raw materials vital
to defense industries. The vessels will
play between ports on the Atlantic
coast, Gulf coast and the Caribbean
The new assignments fo r the Lake
Frumet and Lake Farge recall their
origin during the first World War.
They were among the 300 light stea
mers built in 1917 and 1918 for the
maritime commission to transport
food and war supplies to the Allies
After the Armistice Henry Ford
bought more than 100 o f the stea
mers scrapping most of them for sal
vage iron to be used in automotive
manufacturing. Engines and machin
ery were removed from others, the
Larke Farge and Lake Frumet nclud-
ed and these vessels were converted
nto towing barges during the early
20’s. They have been in service ever
