Two white horses threatened to

convenience himself to come after
them as the horses were doing no
damage and he could get them
when he could get around to it.
Sunday a third person spoke to
Mr. Bly about using the horses in
husking corn, Bly claiming he did
not give his consent. At any rate,
the one wanting to use the horses
went to the Withers place and got
them and had them on road work
Monday. After some verbal spar

the peace, the owner got his horses
and took them home in the evening,
legal proceedings being abandoned.

Special Session Side-Lights
A member of the house of repre
sentatives who helped while away
the time during the regular ses
sion by taking frequent nips from
(a then) illegal bottle of spirits
frumenti, spent just 10 days with
the special session. Then with his
$100 and travel expenses in his
pocket he hied himself home. In
cidentally, there probably is only
one representative district in the
state w+iere his actions would be
countenanced, but the people in
that district rather enjoy him and
would elect him to the unicameral
legislature if the district were big
While members of the legisla
ture were pinching pennies and
eating in hamburger joints during
the last days of the session, em
ployees of the two houses were
wreathed in smiles. Your corres
pondent heard a mixed quartet
singing “I Won’t Go Home Until
Morning” somewhere in the state
house a few days ago. Upon trail
ing the sound, it was discovered to
come from a mimeograph room.
A high leader of the democratic
party in the state who naturally
refused the use of his name in
print, stated confidentally that the
last two-house group of legislators
is the worst in his memory.
Of course there are many fine
legislators in the bunch,” he said,
“but the majority are the bunk.
They don’t know apple butter from
et cetera. I used to oppose the
unicameral idea, but I ve come to
believe it will be a blessing. At
least it can’t be any worse than
what we’ve got. I honestly believe
that each legislature has been
worse than it predecessor since the
state was born.”
Director W. B. Banning of the
state department of agriculture
and inspection gave his office help
a real scare recently when he de
veloped a nose-bleed that wouldn’t
stop. He became so weak that they
had to lay him on his back and
send a rush call for a doctor. It
later was ascertained that an old
fashioned nose blowing had broken
a small blood vessel.

V- 8 LEADERSHIP
HjBi ilj<-f|^lftri.:B I
On October 31 oi last year. Henry Ford
announced his intention to build a million
Ford V-8s in 1935. We are pleased to re
port that this goal was reached in exactly
ten months instead of a full year.
One million cars and trucks is an im
pressive total. But figures by themselves
mean nothing. It is what they represent
that counts. Selling a V-8 at a low price
has brought a new kind of automobile
within reach of the people. Producing it
has provided steady work for hundreds
of thousands of men in the Ford plants, in
associated industries and on the farm.
These million Ford V-8 cars and trucks
have helped to make things better all
around. In the first ten months of 1935 the
Ford Motor Company paid out, in the
United States alone, $140,119,326.00 in
wages and $523,111,389.00 for materials.

BUILDER OF PORD. LINCOLN AND LINCOLN-ZEPHYR MOTOR CARS
