This tractor has done much very much
in bringing true Mr. Ford's prophecy; for in
it is a machine which has harnessed one of
the most dependable, efficient, adaptable,
economical sources of power in the world
a machine that saves from thirty to fifty
per cent of the farmer's time a machine
which many farmers claim plows, harrows
or drills as much ground in the same time
as four, six or even eight horses. And more
a machine that takes care of every power
job on the farm.

the regular army, national ftuard and

set forth today in a letter written

commanders are responsible xvithin
the limits of their respective com
mands for success of this great na
tional undertaking, and the most im
portant mission of regular army of
ficers in time of peace, next after
assuring a highly effeeient and well

the org.i nized reserves.
"All citizen soldiers who are free
to meet the special requirements im
posed on members of the national
guard should be encouraged to enter
the force." the letter continued. "All
young men after their voluntary mil
itary training in the reserve officers'
training corps or training camps
should be encouraged to join a unit
either of the national guard or the
organized reserves. There should be
no rivalry between the two forces
but rather an interchange of cervice
"It is my desire that the officers
detailed for service in the organisa
