Not hertvy enough to be cumbersome' and still heavy keep the road. Th2 tire mileage fs Inls car being exceedingly easy on tires. The material in the car is of the best.

Motor World Bellwethers Put Reputation First REAL LEADERS OF THE AUTOMOBILE INDUSTRY JUSTIFY PUBLIC CONFIDENCE BY THOROUGH THE THEIR ONLY CODE. By C. E, T. SCHARPS. Huge production or great profits alone do no constitute any conip-iny a leader in t'r.c industry- 11 mailers a company guilds !i few poort carg or many. If ils gaoils arc good, if its pledges JITC fulfilled. Hint, company is n .leader. Those who see only the Immediate profit'and lake it, ralher (hail uuiltl for Ihc future'anil make goqil-lo their customers, arc nol leaders, even if thcjr arc numbered by Hie thoioanrls and are met on every voaA aiid highway. Mnke-KOuil Is IniilL into the cars ot a true leader In tnc industry and Is Just n3 much a part of It as the 1 linvc heard It avKUcd that big production is an excuse far fruiUs In Ihc production of n new model. Well, let, us lake .tlic case of-Dodge Brothers. In Ihc two years (hat omleil In Qctoher last they hail buill and put on the market cars of ajjraml new design. They nrc now well on Ihoir Iheir second Anil I know of no other company loilily that more thoroughly enjoys (he imlillc llian Uo.-lge lirathers. Flnt ihc Urolhci'S arc u special case, Ihc objectors may say. They had thai big factory when they cut loose front Ford and were ready lo get. liusy on their .own .sliitt. Uut it lie Tcnicmbercd that Ilicy didn't rnnlt) llm nJiolo Ford car for one thing and Ihcrcforc weren't on a production basis to lurn. out n complete automobile. Dortse llrnthcrs' car doesn't look much like a .Ford, dries it? Xo, indeed. The Dodse-rfJrolIiers didn't use any Kord pnllerna or designs. They liuiH from UP.- The Oodge Drolhers constructed 110 Icsa lhan tcsl models. Antl they rhn them hard and con- stantly IhroUEhoni. Ihe year of preparation Ih'cy had. alter Iho b'onl contract was cnncelled. They Icslcd Ihein lo Ihe limll. The.ono that up host and met all tliclr requirements they ecltlcil on ag jhcir nioilol. That is the Doilgu Brothers car of loilay, uot materially different from their very earliest ears. Troubles o[ hafit to he sure, with the early cars. But they ivere.minor and certainly not chronic. They didn't nm through' the scries. The Dodge Brothers insured owncr-snitsfactioii and de- pendable goods in advance.- few things cropped up aEtenvnrd they cured readily and effic- iently. There arc plcnly oE owners of the [irst run of Dodge Urolhers cnrs who today, would nol swap for new models. They are satisfied- Tho cars have 'made good to Ihoiu. From the start the Dodge Drollicrs Jiavc never made hifalulin claims lor llicir They have ad- vartisoil lor the public confidence and they have clearly realized Ihelr responsibility. Just ns an ex- nniplo. hero Is Ihe litest trade paper lulverllairttf copy, jilaccd in journals Intcirdcd nol for ilic general public Iml for Ihn cj-es of the dealers: "Dodge Brothers' rnpulalioii is a distinct asset to the bill it is also n responsibility- "No dealer should ever permit buy one in his employ lr> do or say anything thai. might Imperil the confidence Iho public feels in Uodgc Hrothcrs anil .in their product.11 ._ Thai ts the rTcynotc, Sonic persons have Ihcre was loo much in IDG advertising oE Dodge Urothcrs; that theirs was not "persuasive" copy.
