What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

Melton Chicago I wonder if our prosperity de pends on the sale of automobiles. It may sound ridiculous but after being a guest of the Ford Motor Co. and watching their assembly lines roll out cars at the rate of one per minute, it does sound highly logical. It’s hard to realize how perfect these cars have to be to pass the countless tests. Parts are made by many sub-contractors and here they assemble them in a plant., employing 1600 men. Starting from scratch, they build them—engines here, bodies there, drive shafts, headlights, brakes, wheels, tires—until they are ready for testing. And believe me, every possible test is applied. When I think of the old car I am driving, maybe I am risking too much to try and make it carry me in the kind of modern traffic which cars must contend with each day. The slightest defect—even a paint scratch — will disqualify these new cars from the sales rooms. They must be perfect in every respect, even over a test run at 90 to 100 miles an hour. My old car could never stand up under a test like that and someday our lives may depend on this ability to do so . and the con trol which we exert over our cars. When you watch these eagle- eyed men, demonstrating what a car must be in order to be fit for driving, you wonder about a lot of things. And, remember this: There are 10,000 various parts being manu factured by small sub-contractors for these different autos. It keeps lots of people working and, just maybe, our progress does depend to a great exent on these new cars.
