MILK PRODUCERS' MEETING ( According to reports received by , the committee in charge of the coun- jty-wide meeting of milk producers to l/c helu at the East Aurora High School on Saturday, February 27t(h, at 1:30 p. m., a large number of farmers from all parts of the county are planning to attend. This meeting ! sponsored by the East Aurora Board ' of Trade, the Pomona Grange and ithe Erie County Farm Bureau, has been called to give all milk producers I in the county a chance to get to I gether in a non-partisan meeting and frankly discuss the problem of mar keting their milk. With the market­ ing of milk in the most satisfactory manner possible, a recent announce ment of a large milk merger in New York City, with the possibility of bringing fluid milk into direct com petition on our eastern (market, brings forth the possibility of mak­ ing the problem of marketing the milk in New York state even more acute than it is now. Dr. Leland Spencer of fhe Market­ ing Department of the College of Ag­ riculture at Cornell, who has made a study of the marketing of milk es­ pecially in New York state, has been secured as the principal speaker. Posters announcing this meeting have been placed in all parts of the county and a record attendance is expected. SARAH NICHOLS CHAFFEE Mrs. Sarah A.

CHEVROLET SALES INCREASE Detroit, Mich.—An unprecedented winter demand for Chevrolet passen­ ger cars and trucks necessitated a production last month nearly three times that of January, 1925, i t is an­ nounced by W. S. Knudsen, president and general manager of the Chevro­ let Motor Company. The January production was more than 44,000, whidh eclipses any prev­ ious January production in Chevrolet history. Under the tentative Febru­ ary production schedule, the com­ pany will build more than 51,000 units or nearly twice the number pro­ duced in the corresponding month of last year. The heavy winter production is the result of demand which Chevro­ let buyers have made upon the com­ pany's dealers since the announce­ ment by President Knudsen of re­ duced prices, and numerous improve­ ments on the entire Chevrolet line. Instead of storing reserve stocks against the requirements of spring' business, the dealers report that they are delivering immediately their shipment of cars to waiting buyers. Last year the Chevrolet Motor Company led all manufacturers of three-speed sliding-transmission cars by more than 600,000 units. Accord­ ing to present plans, President Knud­ sen expects to exceed the 1925 rec­ ord by a. comfortable margin. \GOITRE IS GONE\ Say* Medina Lady. Stainlen Liniment Did It.
