latest model of the Ford Motor Company to be introduced to the public in the near future Ls now in progress at the local assembly plant at Front and Lloyd streets A steady hiring program began last week nnd is still continuing at the office More than luuo men have been taken on but most chose have been former em ployes of the company The fact that men were bcint hired caused a large number of the unem ployed to begin a daily vigilance from onily in the morning until late in the None of these hopefuls was taken on as all hirhiR has len aone by advance notification A great deal of secrecy has been attached to tho introduction of the new Ford The exact date has not been definitely set but bv the preparations now being made the public can reasonably expect to see the 1933 edition within the next or so Last years model was not presented on the market until early spring Con siderable advance comment was heard concerning the improvements of that production The main feature of the moae1 when it at last came before the public was the eightcylinder motor lhe new model it is reported will retain nil tho added improvements of Inst year and will have in addition increased features that will make the car the greatest of its kind tn the history of the Ford Motor Com pany The new model will be heavier it Is said to cope with the power dis played by the present eight cylinder motor and will have a longer chassis permitting more body room The de sign of the car is supposed to be patterned along the lines of the Lincoln Motor Car the expensive big brother of the Ford Other designs have been added that will closely parallel many features displayed by other companies in the recent New York Auto Show The starting of production at the local assembly plant will be a big boost to Business inthis city Local authorities hope that it will be the harbinger of a general all around re txim to normalcy The return 6fthe hundreds to work and the new jobs for many more Win do a great deal to combat the general conditions existing in this city today Many more arc expected to be taken on in near future until produc tion reaches full swing Although hiring is still going on those
