C reater Car Reductions
Prospective car purchasers
will find some interesting news
in this week's issues of The Tri-
bune and Post-Herald. Ford is
announcing another reduction;
the Buick Motor Company comes
forward with a reduction of
$300.00 to $660.00 and the Over-
land people also announce a nice
big cut from the old price.
Really, we are getting back to
the good old times ''before the
war ", and it doesn't seem so
It will behoove the people of
Harmon county to read carefully
the advertising news that will
appear in The Tribune and Post-
Herald the next few weeks with
relation to automobiles, or any-
thing else for that matter, for
there is big reductions being
made in many articles of every

ago that there would not be
mflch wheat in the county worth
cutting, have proved to be with-
out foundation, and while the
crop will be far below normal, it
is stated that some fields will
yield as much as 20 bushels to
the acre, and many more 15 and
ten. This beats a complete fail-
ure by a whole lot.
The recent rains have delayed
preparations for threshing, and
in some instances there is report
of damage to grain crops, but
that damage will be largely off-
set by the great benefit to row
crops, which have seldom looked
more promising than they do
rignt now. Indications are that
there will be an abundance of all
kinda of forage, and thin \*ill be
gratifying, indeed, to those w;ho
contemplate increasing their
herds of stock, of which there
are quite a number in the county.
We take pleasure in publishing
the following article from Collins
Forecast, which we do through
the courtesy of the National
Bank of Commerce:
' 'Major' constructive events
have occurred one after another:
Reduction of steel prices and
waged, lowered rediscount rates,
acceptance by Germany of the
Allied reparation terms and in
dication that both railroad wages
and rates are coming down.
Prices generally at their lowest
after a year's'uninterrupted de
cline reflect the almost universal
hesitancy to buy. Supplies in
the hands of manufacturers,
wholesalers, retailers and the
public are at or are fast ap
proaching a minimum. Labor
is gradually becoming reconciled
to the inevitable and widespread
wage reductions of substantial
proportions are paving the way
for p-i duction at lower costs.
At the reserve banks rediscounts
have fallen 40 percent and note
circulation 1§ percent under re-
cent maximums and the inpour-
mg flood of foreign gold has giv-
en us the largest actual stocks
of the credit base ever held in
the history of this country.
"Further encouragement that
indicates better things to come
is given by accumulating evi-
dence that the corner has been
present level, t may be expected
to restore purchasing power to
the agricultaral sections.
"Economic history indicates
that the next few months will
be a period of strengthening the
general financial position and of
definitely shapiner the course of
the nation's finance, business
and industry so as to permit the
earliest possible return a
sound prosperity. Speculative
activities will be curbed insofar
as possible and spurts in individ-
ual directions will tend to be held
in control so as to bring about
more normal use of raw material,
labor and capital.
"Now is not the time to be-
come enthusiastic. But during
the coming months everyone's
house, financially speaking, can
well be put in order and through
carefully laid constructive sales
plans and aggressive advertising
a broad foundation can be laid
properly upon which to rear a
sound structure of business
prosperity when once again the
wheels of commerce turn more
freely. Despite many contrary
surface indications, the broad
economic trend gives reassurance
of better times for all. Prepar-
