Two kilns at the plant of the Pennsylvania China Co., at Ford City, Pa., are to be used hereafter for the manufacture of electric porcelain products. The report that the entire plant would be used for electric porcelain manufacture was unfounded. F. H. Patterson will have charge of the new department, while the domestic pottery department will continue under the direction of C. L. Gray.

Report is current that the Pennsylvania China Co., at Kittanning, Pa., will enter the electric porcelain field very soon, and with this end in view, the company is making arrangements to buy electric current from the West Penn Railways Co.   The plant of this company at Ford City is working to full capacity manufacturing general ware, and the manufacture of electric porcelain will mean an added industry. Charles Howell Cook, of Trenton, N. J., formerly had an interest in this company, but disposed of his holdings early in the year.
