Spear,  president   of ' the   West   Coast '■ shipbuilding    company    of   Everett,   has  made   public  .the   fact   that   he   has  obtained,  after long  delay,  authority  from tho  shipping board  to build ln(  his   plant   at   Everett,   approximately  $20,000,000.00 worth of concrete ships  for private  order.    He goes  to New  York   to   complete' negotiations   with  the   persons   who   are   to   buy   these  ships.    He   declines   to  make   public  their identity.    About  15,000  tons of  steel to reinforce the frames are involved in the order.   The authority he'  has  obtained  here  permits  the • steel  plants to provide his plant with steel.  His authority includes the construction of 10 cargo-carrying steamers of  7500 tons each, 22 1000-ton barges and  15" ocean-going' tugs,   each -20,0.; feet  long and each with a deadweight of  wooden vessels of trie tsallin and  Dougherty types for French interests.  It is expected that the three yards  of the Foundation Co., one of which  is located in North Portland, will be  given the  contracts. .   f  Contracts for nine wooden ships of  the Ballin type to be 4500 tons each,  have been awarded by the Shipping;  Board to the Kern & Kiernan Shipbuilding Company, of Portland, and  to the Columbia Engineering Works,  the larger end of the contract going  to the former concern.

This  pressing need comes at a time when  there Is a labor shortage and when  a 'million men arc being withdrawn  from industrial and agricultural pursuits to form an army.  Jf the United States is going to  perform the part in the war it has  undertaken, it is absolutely essential  that there shall be a' big increase in  agricultural products, ships, military  goods, and particularly that every  possible means of expediting the  transportation of the unprecedented  volume of shipments shall be used.  This necessary increase in activity  .means that more efficient methods  must be adopted and that time-and-  labor-saving machinery must be utilized. The commercial motor vehicle  is pre-eminently a machine of this  Kind, and ' it has the further gTeat  .economic advantage that its widespread use will conserve human foodstuffs. - . "  ' A motor truck operated normally  ren hours a day performs-the..work  of at least three horse-drawnyvehicles,  displacing fom three to six horses.  Five acres of land are required to  maintain one horse for one "year,  while three acres will" support' one  mail. Each motor .'truck put into  -   i'"  service releases twenty acres of till-  land on a conservative estimate. This  will support seven persons if devoted to the production of human  foodstuffs instead of feed for horses.  Careful estimates show that there  are already in use in the United  States three hundred thousand commercial vehicles which release a total  of six million acres of land capable  of supporting two million people.  This is a mere drop in the bucket  compared with what might be done.  The Department of Agriculture estimated that on January I, 1915, there  were 24,377,789 horses in this country. These required for their .support 120,000,000 acres of land capable  of supporting forty million' persons.  If the „work horses in the country  were displaced by tractors and motor  trucks, the wheat or corn crop of  the country-could be doubled.  During the unprecedented congestion I that .has ' existed for the past  two years and now threatens to increases,* motor trucks have rendered  a ■ very useful service in moving  freight for distances of one hundred  niiles and more. Such service, however, ■ can be greatly increased. A  motor- truck will save, the ow.ner many  annoyances and delays in moving' his  freight and will expedite his Duslnes-  generally.  The motor vehicle lends' itself admirably to every need of haulage by  road, and possesses the further ad-  vantage that-the motor can be used  for operating a" hoisting-winch, and  for varied other purposes. Development of "dump bodies, removable bodies,' and trailers has greatly enhanced  the utility of the motor truck, per-  (Continued on  Pa^e 4.)  iff-..*?- *&v09£Kfffr«  OG MOTOR COMPANY LIMITED  1C62 Georgia St. W.
