McKean Democrat (Newspaper) - June 2, 1921, Smethport, Pennsylvania
Page four the Democrat thurs., june 2, 1921. The Mckean Democrat Kussell Lindsley editor and manager. R. K. Knapp news editor. Entered at the Post office at sme Liport pa., As second class matter Smethport. Pa., thursday june 2, 1921 editorial it is some boast for a Community of Snitch port s population to successfully present a great carnival such As that of last week. It would be a credit to any town Many times the size of Smethport and indicates that Community spirit is very much alive. Mrs. H. C. Wells and her associates deserve great credit for the great Suc Cess of this occasion. The Democrat has disagreed with Elsilia k. Kane in Many thing but we endorse his senti ments to the letter As expressed in his communications to president Harding and senator pen Rose last week demanding the recall of George Harvey ambassador to the court of St. James which were published in the Democrat. Literally speaking the Doughty Kush Equa gentleman in knocking col. Harvey knocked the Nail squarely on its Square head and his denunciation of the misfit Diplomat is being echoed by the press of All parties throughout the breadth of the land. Everything is in readiness for the coming Fis tic encounter Between Jack Dempsey american Champion and Georges Carpentier Champion of Europe. Dempsey Heads the flightless fighter is although he is a fighter by profession he chose not to make it his profession during the War when fighting men were needed badly. On the other hand Carpentier served throughout the War with the French army and won distinction on the fighting front when Down right guts played As important a part in a fighting Man s equipment As great hams of fists. Jack Dempsey May be Able to reduce the Phy Sical Georges Carpentier to mincemeat when they clash in the roped Arena but he will not have convinced the Public that he is a better Man than Georges Carpentier the French War hero. Not by a darned sight. The project of a service men s memorial Hall deserves the support of every taxpayer of Mckean county. In addition to providing a needed Structure As a depository for military archives and historical objects and facilities for National defense purposes it will be a deserved tribute to Mckean county s defenders of All wars. Bradford people have started a War on Carni Vals and that City is Likely to follow the example of scores of other cities throughout the land and bar these travelling organizations from exhibiting there. Of course there Are a few mighty few of these organizations of the larger magnitude which possess real Merit and which j any town would a one is the Johnny Jones exposition which appears in Brad Ford the majority Are a Scourge and a pest sucking the life blood of the economic Structure of any town in which they exhibit. Barring the swarm of Fly by night carnivals with the exception possibly of one really Good one each would furnish sufficient amusement along that will keep thousands of dollars at Home each year. No further reduction in Ford prices no change from present models there will be no other reduction in prices on Fords neither will there be any change in models was the announcement made at a recent meeting in Columbus o., of Ford dealers at the Columbus Branch. This announcement was made a representative from the Detroit office who went into rela Tive details to present automobile conditions. Some interesting figures were Given by the Detroit representative that have a bearing on the business As a result of the recent reduction in prices. He informed the dealers that the Ford company lost on every touring car manufactured and the net loss on the roadster was while on the Sedan the loss was on the profit Side of the led Ger were three models. The Plain Chassis shows the 1 Ruck and the Coupe the Ford company has ninety million dollars Worth of material under contract for 1921 at the old Price and with these conditions the above figures show that the company cannot stand any further reduction. It is almost certain that unless the company can go into the markets and make additional purchases at lower prices than the present contracts Call for there will be an increase in prices after the first of the year.
