PAST YEAR IS
ONE OF HEAVY
Chevrolet Motor Company Passes
Air Previous Records' With
; 500,000 Cars Completed.
With the production of more than
half million passenger cars and
trucks in 1925, the Chevrolet Motor
company is now at the close of its
Out of the grand total of Chevro-
lets built during the past 12 months
the Pacific Coast motorists alone pur
chased over 60,000. It is significant
of the wealth and prosperity of the
far west when the people of this
great territory are financially able to
buy one tenth of the total number of
automobiles contributed to the entire
world by such a" vast organisation.
Chevrolet s achievement is a rec
ord for the automobilo industry as a
whole, for the 1925 figures have never
before "been approached by any man
ufacturer of selective transmission
automobiles. This mark tops the
company's own previous record by
Some idea of the enormity of this
production may be gained from the
following statistical illustrations.
If the 500,000 Chevrolets built this
year were lined up on a trans-continental
highway with 17 feet of space
from bumper to bumper they would
make a solid line between San Fran
cisco and New York.
On the Pacific Coast, the 60,000 ve
hicles delivered during the .past 12
months would cover the Pacific High
way from Tijuana, Mexico, across the
united States to the Canadian bor
der with a steady stream of ears
spaced 176 feet apart.
Paid attendance at football games
held at colleges, junior colleges, nor
mal and high schools throughout the
land last autumn is estimated at 2,
600,000. All of this vast throng could
be transported to and from the con
teats at one time by the 1925 output
In actual money, considerably over
three hundred millions of dollars
were spent for Chevrolet automobiles
since January 1. A general tendency
toward thrift In this particular part
of the country is evidenced by the
fact that on the Pacific Coast more
than $32,500,000 was saved out of
earnings and invested . in Chevrolet
The 500,000 car production of this
company represents a greater number
of units than was built by its manu
facturing organisation during its en
tire first eight years of existence.
Chevrolet's present production fig
ure is higher than the number of cars
built by all companies in the first 20
years of the industry.
In anticipation of another record-
brealting year in 192fl, the Chevrolet

Motor company has greatly extended
its field organization. This expansion
program involved the opening of new
lone offices in New York, Cleveland
and Omaha. Additional aales and ser
vice buildings have been completed
at four other zone points.
With well over two million cars
and trucks already to its credit and
one of the most promising years of
the decade ahead, Chevrolet has an
excellent opportunity to repeat its
present achievement by making 1926
the greatest year of its history.

your health. The phyaician who is
most likely to have thia knowledge is
the one who haa been your physician
for aome time. Low blood pressure
usually indicates a lack of general
tone. High blood pressure, on the
other hand, directs attention to cer
tain diaeases, the changes due to ad
vancing years and especially in wo-
men, to disturbance of middle age.
These conditions, like all others, are
most effectively and often success-
fully treated only when discovered
early. A blood pressure test, there
fore, should be a part of every good
Visible throbbing arteries do not
mean high blood preasure. Nor does
loss of blood necessarily lower it,
High blood pressure does not signify
too much blood or any change at all
in the blood itself but means that the
blood is attempting to circulate un
der abnormal resistance.
That one is as old aa his arteries is
a popular saying. High blood pres
sure too often shows that the patient,
while perhaps knowing the old saying,
haa not realized what he could do to
influence the matter. By overeating
and drinking, chronic constipation, re
peated colds and other infections he
haa carried a load for years under
which he has finally broken down.
Nature provides a wide margin of
safety for most of ua but it is not
inexhaustible. The ilia whoch we
generally claim as petty and trivial,
frequently repeated, and bad habits
of hygiene long continued, are prob
ably most concerned in determining
whether we live aa long as we should.
You cannot buy lower blood pres
sure. The most skillful physician
gives advice which you and only you
can carry out. Regret and remorse
may save your soul but it will lower
your bloo dpressure but very little if
years of bad living or neglect have
raised it to a high point. On the
other hand if high blood pressure is
found and leads to the discovery of
kidney disease, much can be done by
proper treatment If, however, the
high blood pressure is only a tempor
ary phenomenon, one of the many
symptom of a natural change which
will pass in a short time, there is no
need to be unduly alarmed about it.
A blood pressure well below normal
limits indicates the necessity of find
ing out what is the cause of the poor
condition and eradicating it.
Heavy Outlays Made by
Public Utilities in 1925
The year just closing was a big
year for the light and power com
panies of the country, according to
estimates just prepared. These fig
ures showed that in order to take
care of the growth of business during
the past 12 months, the light and
power companies were compelled to
spend almost 10 per cent more than
planned at the beginning of the year
for additions and extensions.
Actual expenditures for additions to
generating plants, transmission and
distribution systems in the country
during 1926 were $632,350,000, as
against an estimated budget of $579,-
630,000 announced at the opening of
The big increase in electric power
production is attributed chiefly to the
speeding up of various industries
while demands for improved street
lighting and more electrie appliances
in the home helped to increase the
volume of production.
