HIGH COST OF SPENDING
When you spend SIOO, do you stop to think that
| your action will cost you about $6.00 a year for
j the rest of your life? V
It is a fact. That’s what your SIOO would have
ts j earned you, had you kept it at 6 percent, simple
| interest. That’s 50 cents a month; it amounts
| to S6O in ten years; it is $l2O in 20 years, or $240
| in 40 years. That is what it costs you to spend a y
hundred dollars now. Can you see why people
who save become wealthy? It is plain as the

SOUSA “OUTBATS” BABE
RUTH IN GAME OF PAY
Elhart, Ind., May—Top notchers
in the world of music “bat out”
heavier salaries than do kings of
the baseball diamond, reports J. F.
Boyer, supervisor of the Con Music
Center here. Mr. Boyer forsees a
brighter .uture for the youngster
following in the steps of Sousa
than he who would fill Babe Ruth’s
“To be sure Babe Ruth’s $75,-
000 a year salary is not to be sneez
ed at, but there are any number
of starts in the music world who
are ‘batting out’ salaries that have
this beaten,” says Mr. Boyer.
“John Philip Sousa, for example,
is now working a tour of the mo
tion picture theatres of the coun
try with his band at a reported sal
ary of $12,500 weekly. This is
approximately $650,000 for the
year, but even allowing for sever
al months lay-off and for the fact
that Sousa must pay the fifty-five
musicians who make up his band,
there is a still a small fortune left
for him, exceeding by far Babe
Ruth’s $75,000. Then, too, Mr.
Sousa’s earning capacity endures
many times longer than Ruth’s, for
the older Mr. Sousa gets, the great
er his fame and drawing power,
whereas Ruth at best only has a
few years of maximum earning
Paul Witeman Vincent Lopez and
Paul Ash are among the other out
standing musical figures mentioned
by Mr. Boyer as having earnings
w r hich exceed those of the famous
baseball star. Mr. Whiteman is
now playing at a new York restau
rant on a guarantee and percent
age which is said to give him in
the neighborhood of $15,000 a
week. Veincent Lopez’s most rtcent
engagement on the Loew vaudeville
circuit was at salary of $4,000 a
week, and Paul Ash has a five-
year contract with the owners of
the Oriental theatre in Chicago
which calls for the payment of a
million dollars within a period of
KENLY GIRL CHALKS UP FINE
Kenly, May 14 —Officials and
patrons of Glendale Consolidated
high school, located near Kenly,was
preparing to bestow honors upon
Miss Rena Woodward, 17-year-old
daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J. M.
Woodward, when she is handed her
diploma next week.
Since she enrolled in the first

A RECORD MONTH FOR
THE CHEVROLET CO.
Spurred on by the greatest de
mand in its history, Chevrolet in
April again set up a new produc
tion record with a total output for
the month of 111,937 units. This
exceeds by 4,037 units the best pre
vious monthly performance in the
history of the company and estab
lishes an all-time record for the
monthly production of gear-shift
Equally as spectacular as the re
markable monthly production fast
and dividing the spotlight with it
was the mark established April
29, when in the short space of a
day’s working hours, the factories
built 5,347 Chevrolet cars and
trucks. This was 272 units in
excess of the previous day’s re
It was particularly fitting that
the record day happened to be the
same one that Alfred P. Sloan, Jr.,
president of the General Motors
Corporation, chose for a visit to the
Flint plant. Mr. Sloan, with C. S.
Mott, vice president of the General
Motors Corporation, arrived at the
factory early in the day as guests
of W. S. Knudsen, president, and
C. F. Barth, vice president of the
Chevrolet Motor Company.
Before Mr. Sloan had completed
his inspection of the big Flint
plant, where men and machinery
were combining to build the eight
types of Chevrolet cars now avail
able, it was evident that a new pro
duction record was in sight.
Mr. Sloan waited for number 5,-
347 to come off the line, congratu
lated Mr. Knudsen on the remark
able showing being made by the
Chevrolet Motor company and its
product and rode off the line in the
epoch-making model which again
happened to be a coach.
