Lenders ofM otor Industry Observe
Silence Regarding Their
Future Plans
(By Associated Press)
DETROIT, March 28.-As the period
approaches when the long rumored
war within the motor industry is ex-
pected to be brought into the open,
leaders in the industry continued to
observe a tight-lipped silence respect-
ing their plans.
Of the three prime factors in the
rumored war-the Ford organization,
the General Motors corporation, and
the independents-from only the lat-
ter has there come a statement upon
which might be placed the stamp of
William C. Durant, a manufacturer
in the independent field, which in-
cludes concerns affiliated neither with
the Ford organization nor the General
Motors, announced that he shortly
will reveal plans for a move that will
rival anything in his already sensa-
tional career in the motor industry.
Speculation regarding Durant's
plans is rife, but the most persistent
rumor is that he will withdraw from
Wall street and again take up an ac-
tive role in the manufacturing end of
the automobile business. Rumor has
it that he plans a new low priced car,
the product of a combine on which he
is reported to have been working for
more than a year. Whether the re-
ported combine contemplates a mer-
ger of the four factories in which Du-
rant is now interested-the Flint, Du-
rant, Star and Locomobile,-with other
independent companies, is a matter of
much speculation. One report has it
tbat the Continental Motors, along
with a number of other independent
companies, thus far not mentioned in
public reports, will be included in the
merger if it is brought about.
Neither the Ford organization nor
Ihe General Motors executive com-
mented regarding Durant's contem-
plated move.
