ney street, whiah was converted a few
years ago into a garage, is to 'become a

ing been made during the year. There was

APPERS0N MAKES CHANGES
WHEN THEY ARE NEEDED
Speaking of the Apperson new "no
yearly model" policy, J. H. DeLong, lo
cal distributor, had this to say:
"Always has it been the aim of the
Apperson Brothers to give their custo
mers hones':ly built, high grade automo
biles at a price within reason. Apper
son construction from now on will be
marked by changes when the need for
Improvements presents itself; therefore,
It will be continuous. There will be no
break between seasons, because we will
not recognize yearly models. Each and
every car will be built as well as we
know how to construct it at the time it
is being manufactured.
'Times have changed. Manufacturers
cannot hold back improvements to make
talking points for another year. The de
mand Is for the best and the latest at
all times. That is what we plan to give.
If Improvements are tried and proved to
be of worth, we expect to adopt them
without waiting for the end of the sea
son to roll around.
"The Apperson has always been a
year-round performer. Now we Intend
to make it a year-round buy."
