A HAPPY NEW YEAR?
We have it on the best of statistical author-
ity that the New Year will be a prosperous one
. which is another way of saying that most
of us will get along reasonably well, some of
the favored few will get rich, some go broke,
new labor contracts will call for .more money
and those who are living on a dole of one sort
or another will continue doing so. Whatever
perils industry may be facing from over-extended
time payments in the 'consumer field will be
cushioned by defense spending.
Whether the New Year will be a happy one
will depend on what 't takes to make you hap-
py. T6 those of a naturally suiny disposition
and who are ,_ ..,lz- if shutting out the "rum-

With its frisky "Turbo-Fire V8," this
Chevrolet is pure dynamite, all right.
But it's beautifully mannered, too-
quiet, well-behaved, instantly obedient
to your slightest signal!
Nudge the accelerator and you're aware of
the split-second chain reaction of your toe
to the "Turbo-Fire"! There's your dynamite'
-with horsepower ranging up to a high of
205. The car is built for its power, too-with
a low, low center of gravity, well distributed
weight and wide-apart rear springs. There's
your stability, and safer handling! All doors
have safety latches-and instrument panel
padding and seat belts, with or without
shoulder harness, are available at extra cost.
Directional signals are standard. Come in
and try a new Chevrolet!
THE HOT ONES EVEN HOTTER
Mr. Evans from the Lighting
Company gave an interesting talk
at the Community Hall last night
-on how farmers can cut electric
bills. Fur those who missed it,
here's a short recap.
Don't try to light up the cob-
webs in the rafters. Use a reflec-
tor and a smaller bulb will prob-
ably do the job. Too many farm-
ers use naked bulbs that waste
50% of the light.
Try using moveable projector
bulbs that beam light the way a
searchlight does. A couple of
these "spots" will often give you
better illumination than a gang
of juice-wasting overhead lamps
From where I sit, it's amazing
how- often we misuse the things
we have like electricity. Wt
also make a mistake if we misuse
our right of personal choice-
about which candidate to vote for
say, or whether beer or coffe(
makes the ideal mealtime drink-
by trying to force our opinions os
others. Respect for the other fel.
low's point of view should be oua

As the largest privately owned business in
America, its financial affairs have been closely
guarded secrets from the beginning and a sub-
ject of much speculation, in and out of the in-
dustry. You know the figures now. Everybody
does. Now it's just another automobile com-
pany unless you remember the founder -
how he insisted on publishing a magazine on a
New York known as the UN who can enjoy
thqp travaganza of a presidential campaign
wWb!ut thinking too much about its implications
- we hold out the best chance of a joyful 1956.
But it is a reasonable prediction that the
New Year will not be dull, and that Washington
will be the most important city in the world --
at least so far as Americans are concerned.
Thus, the most practical greeting we can
offer on this occasion is. our pledge, to do the
best we can to follow the threads of the world's
"blind weavers" and to interpret as clearly as
we are able some of the garish patterns they
may be expected to achieve. And it will be
our deepest hope for 1956 that through the
reaction of our readers some of the more reck-
less hands may be stayed from the fateful loom.
And so, our best wishes for a New Year of
increasing strength, widening influence and
MYSTERY STORY ENDS
Mass production of most any mechanical
goods you want to mention has become common-
place essential, in fact, to a manufacturer's
survival since Henry Ford shocked the indus-
trial world with the five-dollar-a-day minimum
wage since he told his sales-manager that
the public could have his Model T in any color
- so long as it was black s. .ince he paid the
late 5, -t -r' Jim Cousins a reputed six million
dollars a share for .. Mr. Cousins had receiv-
ed years before for doing bookkeeping chores,
All of which is a sort of a prelude to the
financial story of the year, which, as you well
know, is that in a matter of days Ford Motor
C.-..,,..i. f, '.... will be on sale for the first time
in the _.rnpi:ry', history. Experts in such mat-
ters guess the price will be around '",'- There
will be ten million shares .
