Attention Mr. Edw R Maher
Answering your letter of February 10th, we are pleased to give, you the
information you have requested with reference to our Model "A" Ford test car.
Complete data is at this time available only up to the end of January, inasmuch as
February operating costs have not as yet been compiled.
At the end of January the car had been run .110,214 miles at n cost of $.01511
rer vvle, including e;as, oil, grease and repairs. Our total cost of operating the car,
cxcept tires, including depreciation, insurance, drivers' salaries, accessories, tire and
tube repars, etc., per mile is $.04378, making a total cost per mile of $.05885).
Inasmuch as the car is used for testing purposes and experimental work en-
tirely, we do not include the cost of tires in figuring operating costs of the car.
Naturally, inasmuch as many of the tires were experimental, the mileage obtained
has varied considerably. However, on standard Riverside construction we ore ob-
tainin;-: an average of 20,000 miles or more per tire. This we feel is an exception-
ally good record inasmuch as the car is traveling almost twenty-four hours per day
and frequently at rather high speed.
Yours very truly,
MONTGOMERY WARD & COMPANY

for fresh and canned apple* .
from this country, white (Wmuny wat,
the largest market for dried apples.
"Over 93,000 cars of apples were
shipped by rail from the producing
areas to markers in this country dur-
ing this same year. Distribution
within the United States was wide-
spread, apples from the Northwest
reaching uil of the states, while those
from the Eastern and Central states
reached practically the entire territo-
ry east of the Rocky Mountains.
"Figures covering the 06 most im-
portant markets in the country show
that apples from the state of Wash-
ington reached all of these markets,
those from Oregon reached 55, and
those from Idaho 84, In view of the
long hauls involved, the distribution
of apples from the Western states is
significant. Apples from Washing-
ton, Oregon and Idaho, in many in-
stances, traveled over 2,500 miles to
market. This is further emphasized
when it is realized that apples from
the state of Washington predominat-
ed in New York City, the entire
width of the United States separating
the origin and destination points.
This wide distribution of apples
shows conclusively that freight rates
do not restrict their movement.
"Prices of apples at all phases of
the marketing process fluctuated con-
tinuously during the past three years.
Fluctuations were often pronounced, j
with wide daily, weekly, monthly and
seasonal ranges in the prices paid to
the growers and in the wholesale and
"The spread or difference between
the low arid high prices was often sev-
eral times the freight rate on a box,
bushel or barrel of apples from pro-
ducing areas to market. The differ-
ence between the low and high price
at New York City for apples produced
in the state of Washington during the
1927-28 season was .$2.00 per box.
and at Chicago there was a difference"
of $2.8:1 per box. This spread at New
York in the daily average prices of
Washington apples was about two and
three-fourths times the freight rate
o«i a box of apples Shipped from any
point in Washington, while the spread
of $2.83 per box at Chicago was about
three and three-fourths times the
freight rate. The ratio to freight
rates of the spread in prices of indi-
vidual sales was still greater. As
freight rates were practically un-j
