THE UNIVERSAL CAR

MILLIONS OF FAMILIES
"I WILL BUILD A CAR FOR THE MULTITUDE"
SAID HENRY FORD IN 1903. READ HOW THE FULFILL
MENT OF THAT PROPHECY IS NOW
MADE POSSIBLE THROUGH THE
Ford Weekly Purchase Plan
For many years it has been Henry Ford's per
sonal ambition to make the Ford the universal
family car to put within the reach of the mil
lions of people who have never been privileged
to enjoy the benefits of motor car ownership.
During the past fifteen years over 7,500,000 Ford
cars have been placed in the hands of retail cus
tomers more than a million and a half of them
within the past twelve months and yet there
are still millions of families who are hopefully
looking forward to the day when they can own
And now the way is open.
Under the terms of this plan you can select your
Ford car, set aside a small amount each week
and you will be surprised how soon you will own
it. In the meantime your money will be safely
deposited to your credit in one of the local banks
where it will draw interest.
Think it over. . Five dollars will start an ac
count. The whole family can participate in it.
Father, Mother, brothers and sisters each do
in a little.
Why not start today? Stop in and talk it over
with your local Ford dealer. He will be glad
to fully explain the details of the plan and help
you get started toward the ownership of a Ford

A change of name and extensive
repairs to their business home on
Main- street have been announced by
the owners of the Warren Music
House of Pendleton. The new name
of the business concern will be the
Pendleton Music House, and the re
pairs o the ubuilding will begin
within a short time. The owners of
the firm are A. B. Robertson, E. J.
Scellars and Jack Mulligan, local
Hard wood floors will be laid in
th(e room, the balcony that now runs
across the front part of the room
will be torn out and a new balcony
built in the rear of the room. A
long isle will run back to the rear
of the store, and on one side will be
record racks and phonograph display
rooms, and on the other side the
space will be given over to piano dis
"We had hoped to get started on
these repairs several months ago,"
Mr. Mulligan stated, "but we had not
renewed our leas art that time, so
the work was held up."
The snow stalces recorded about
halt its much snow in the mountains
the last of April as they did a month,
earlier. On the head of Big Butter
creek snow remains only in heavy
timber and in protected places. At
the stake on the head of Ditch creek
the snow has decreased from forty
inches to twenty-two during the
month. Along the Hoppner-Ritter
road from the coal mines to the
summit the depth is from two to
three feet and is packed and heavy.
The ground is not frozen and the
bulk of the moisture is going into
the soil, with a promise of a good
grazing season. Grass along the foot
hills is the best in many seasons
Rangers Groom, Woods and Clisby
have the telephone line maintained
up Willow creek as far as the Van
Vactor summer home. As fast as the
snow permits all of the lines leading
into the forest will be repaired.
Three hundred new members have
joined the Pacific Co-operative Wool
Growers this spring. Thesp men rep
resent approximately 75,000 sheep
and were attracted to the association
by the high prices obtained by its
memgers during the 1922 season. A
number of large range sheep owners
of eastern Oregon who have watched
the association's progress closely for
the past two years this year joined
the association and will market their
wool graded and in an orderly man
A significant feature which has no
doubt interested new members in
joining is the fact that prices receiv
ed for fine and medium wool last
year through the association are still
Beveral cents higher per pound than
the peak outside prices thus far paid
in the northwest (luring the current
season . During 1922 a number of
choice range clips in the association
brought from 43 to 46 cents per
pound, while valley fine staple wools
brought over 49 cents. Tho associa
tion last year sold a carload of wool
for the highest price received for
wools in the entire northwest when
it rceived 52 cents a pound for a
carload of fine southern Oregon.
