day, May 14, when Rev. Blair ofjnUacd which was used for defraying

Friday, a new curtain was in-'
stalled in the high school. This has
added a great deal to the high
school. For a number of years we
have talked about a new curtain but
every time something would come up
which prevented our getting one, bo
a new movement was recently start
ed by the high school and helped
along by the townspeople made it
poslble for them to carry it through.
And now the next time a play is giv
en they won't have to worry with
the old curtain which we have had
for the past several years.

127,240 FORD CARS
Ford Retail
Sales Hit New High
According to a report just received
from the Ford Motor Company, De
troit, a daily average of 5,210 retail
sales of Ford cars and trucks had
been readied by the close of April in
the United States alone.
Ford Bales of cars and trucks for
the month, Including both domestic
and foreign, totaled 127,249. This
establishes a new high record, ex
ceeding the largest previous month,
June 1821, by 15,467.
The sale of Fordson Tractors has
also been steadily climbing. A total
of 11,181 Fordsons were sold during
April in the United States, a daily
average of 4G9 having been reached
by the end of the month. This
gives the tractor a new high sales
record, and showB 100 per cent in
crease over the best month In 1921.
The Ford Company lB enjoying a
banner year in all departments.
Output of Ford cars and trucks for
the year, according to present esti
mates, will exceed 1,100,000, which
represents a ten per cent increase
over 1921.
The Ford factory at Detroit is
now operating at full capacity, har
ming a force of more than 40,000 men
the payroll. The scheduled output
or May will pronamy reacn iat,uuu
cars and trucltB' which will be ap-
plied against orders approximating
Despite the attempt of the factory
and the twenty-three assembling
plants in the United States to pro
duce a sufficient number of cars to
meet the unusually heavy demand,
Is has been impossible for Ford deal
ers In most cases to make immediate
deliveries. v

soon hope to have memberships from
the townpeople as well as those
from the high school.

it Is nearing the end of school and a
large number of students are not
attending, but nevertheless tt was a
good proposition, and we take this
opportunity to thank all those who
so kindly helped us and made it pos
sible to keep the cafeteria cpen.

fire yells and the meeting was closed
