55 per cent of the output of the seven big Maxwell
plants is war work! '
Every one of those plants is doing its patriotic
duty 100 per cent.
. We are frank to say we believe that is equally
true of our competitors we have yet to learn of
a single shirker in this industry.
If there is anything more Uncle Sam desires done,
we will tackle that too.
Meantime, and for the very reasons set forth above,
we deplore the loose statements of panic-preaching
publicists throughout the country.
These would close down the third largest industry
in America on the grounds that it is a "non essen
No other industry is doing so much outside its
regular sphere doing it so willingly, doing it so
rapidly and doing it so honestly as is this very
motor car industry.
For a ship builJer to make a few more ships; or
for an ordnance plant to make more guns is only to
develop their normal business.
But for a motor car factory to make ship3 entire
and in part and guns and shells and fuses
and caterpillar tractors and mine anchors and
airplane motors, wings and other parts that is
This industry is doing all that and more.
Detroit, the very center of the motor car industry
an inland city and one where, in normal times,
we had no war industry now is doing more war
work than any other city iixAmerica.
And in our regular line we are also helping more
than any other class of business men to solve the
transportation problems at home and abroad for
we not only transport a very laTge percentage of
our own raw material and finished product on its
own wheels, but every truck yes, and every pas
senger car too helps by thousands of tons per
year in carrying, formerly done by the railroads.
Loose talk is harmful at any time it is particularly
serious just now.
Let other industries do their part do a tithe of
what the motor car industry is doing and they
will be going some.
Meantime your own transportation problem, ac
centuated as it is- by the war activities and the
war prosperity of the country, can best be "solved
by an efficient, economical, reliable Maxwell

As Operating Base
By Robert J. Bender
(United Press staff correspondent)
Washington, July 23. Allied action
in Siberia impends.
President Wilson has completed an
announcement which will set-' forth to
tho world tho program of aid for Rus
sia, assuring the Russians and all peo
ples that ours is not a policy of ag
giandizement or aggression. Its issu
ance awaits ouly receipt of tho formal
aecep:ance, iby Japan of tho interna
tional proposition. This is expected
Tho first step of the allies will be
to occupy Vladivostok with troops.
With this base definitely under al
lied protection the danger of armed
German forces becoming a greater men
ace in Siberia, will be countered.
Tho action is not "intervention." It
is the foundation work for tho eco
nomic assistance which is to follow.
President Wiljon will outline speci
fically tho whole proposed course of
action and its purposes. His declara
tion will be spread broadcast through
all countries of the world to offset any
effot by Germany to spread the, false
rumor that the allies are aggressively
acting against Russia.
A force of trained newspaper men
will be sent into Siberia to establish
contact with Russians and disseminate
the news of America's program of as
sislanco for the .people.
Action now is regaded as timely.
The Czechoslovak forces have "cut

part of Russia are friendly.

a major offensive. It is, therefore, per

of Von Hindenburg 's supply system is

by temperament and training an of-

abhorrent to him. A leader with this
characteristic, but with less far-seeing
wisdom than General Foch. might have
been influenced by the early success
ofthe Marne fighting to become deep

to wait. That is the best assurance of
final success of the allied cause.
