The department, formed principally
m meant of reducing a-te. is con
ducted purely a a conservation ipon
cy. While it was not the intention
of the company to make it profit
producinp, yet by pultinp it on an
efficient basis, it has progressed to
the point where it is now self-sustain
An averap-e of 800 men are employ
ed, working twenty-four hours a day
in three eight-hour shifts, and the
work includes the operation of the
lumber yard, saw mills and the hand
ling of all new and old lumber for
While every day the Highland Park
plant uses more than 200.000 feet of
new lumber in making shipments, the
salvage department daily reclaims
nearly 500,000 feet of old lumber and
converts it into boxes, crates, cleats,
braces and other pieces.
Every factory unit in the Ford or
ganization constantly strives for 100
per cent lumber salvage. At the
River Rouge plant, the Lincoln plant
and at all branch plants throughout
the country, every bit of lumber pos
sible is used for shipping and what
remains is sent by the carload and
the truck load to Highland Park,
where facilities permit the utilisa
tion of smaller pieces than at any
other place, ar;d where salvaging is
carried to the extreme limit
Employes engaged in unpacking in
coming shipments are instructed to
carefully remove all boards with as
little damage as possible, thus per
mitting the salvage department to
utilize them to the utmost.
Lumber from more than 1.500 worn
out box cars from the D. T. & I. has
found its way to the salvage mill to
be converted into boxes and crates
and other pieces needed for shipning.
Only the other day a Ford foreman
visiting some company work at Flat
Rock, Mich., found s great pile of
old logs which had been used as pil
ing for a temporary bridge. These
were immediately shipped to the sal
vage department and sawed into us
able boards along with the old lum
ber used in construction work there.
Standardization of shipping pack
ages has done much to bring greater
efficiency in the lumber conservation
Three years ago the company was
using 600 different sized boxes and
crates for shipping. Today 95 per
cent of the same shipments are be
ing made in boxes of 14 different
sizes, some filling as many as 100 dif
ferent needs, and -45 boxes and crates
of different sixes meet all the other
At present the aalvag-e department
is turning out an average of 15,000
boxes and crates a day, and it is not
uncommon for a box or crate to have
three or four kind? of wood in it?
makeup. Recent Introduction of bur- j
tap bag for making certain ship
ments cut the box requirement down
about 6.000 a day.
Salvaging proceeds in a building 0
feet wide by 7(X feet long, on the
well known Ford contniuous produc
tion sytera Aa the old lumber sal
vaged from boxes, barrels, boards and
scrap wood of every imaginable kind
come in. it is sorted and placed on a
continuous conveyor, which carries it
past various sawing stations. Work
men on the line pick out boards of
most desirab'.e siie for their need,
the aim being to always saw the
longest piece from the available
Scraps move on to the end and into
great shredders, where tbey are cut
into small pieces, then caught up in
a suction tube and blown over to the
furnace rooms to be used as fuel.
Completed boxes move on to de
partments requiring them.
Crate pieces, cleats and braces are
sawed to proper sixes and are eent to
the several departments, each as
sembling its own crates.
Two departments may be used to
illustrate the great daily require
ments for this kind of lumber. The
radiator assembly department util
izes twenty-two pieces of wood in ev
ery shipping crate, and an average
of 2.206 of these crates are sent out
In the carload shipment of 100 mo
tors, 750 feet of heavy lumber is re
quired for proper bracing and pack
ing. With more than sixty-four of
these cars going out daily, a total of
over 60.000 feet of lumber is required
every day for the shipment of motors
Lumber conservation, as practiced
by the Ford Motor company, has prov
ed a practical business investment
but of far greater significance is the
saving in forestry it makes possible,
and the example it sets for private
and public enterprise throughout the

WHAT EVERY SUCCESSFUL
The man who has worked for his accumulations; the man
with responsibilities of success, he knows the necessity and
full value of established relations with a first class banking or
ganization. Financing any business to success, whether it be mercan
tile, industrial or agricultural, is a job which requires courage.
But most important of all is to have an established credit and
a friendly business relationship with bankers of proven ability;
men of vision who know their own success can be only in pro
portion to yours.
No matter what your work may be you are striving for
success. Start today to establish your credit. This bank can
assist you. Carnegie's great fortune started in a small saving
