Unprecedented Aeklevemeata. j
Even tha moat cursory survey of the
commercial world brings to light a num-
. bar of achievements wholly lacking in
precedent. As a matter of fact. It has
again become tha custom to speak of naw
high records as something natural and
quite to be expented, while la several
loatanoes actual performances are out
stripping tha moat enthualaatla predic
tions. All the traditional Indices of pros
perity are present: during October, for
tha first time In the annals of tha coun
try, output of pig Iron reachad 1000,000
tons; as port trade, due largely, but not
wholly, to tha magnitude and urgency
' of war demands, continues of unmatched
proportions; bank clearings have touched '
figures never attained and railroad earn
ings show a remarkable enhancement of
tha taming power of tha common car
riers, with some leading systems report
ing maximum revenues. Moreover, con
vincing evidence of tha broadening con
sumptive demands in many directions la
found In tha rise In Dun's index number
of 'wholesale commodity prices to the
highest level In several decades, while
tha statistics of commercial failures re

Tha year 111 was tha moat active In
tha history of tha leather business, ac

memory, of thosa doing business today.
'"The boom m the leather business, how

"During another epochal year, the
'United States has made unprecedented

It lake,, indeed, been a year In which

' While there la still a shortage of ars
' for tarrying grain. It la not as acute as
It was a rouple of weeks ago. According
' to the railroad freight men. Urge numbers
of cars that contained goods for export
and . were held on sidings In cities and
towns along the Atlantic coast have boon
unltaded and have come back Into tha
service. These cars sre being shunted as
rapidly as poaslble into the grain pre

. The mild winter haa relieved the car

i large numbers of fright cars have been
lmptvesed Into the coal carrying buelneaa.
r but how with the bine of the dealers all
- filled and no heavy demand for fuel, these
cera have been turned bark Into the
grain trade. As a result, this has added
thousands of cars to grain carrying.

In announcing the new SERIES 17 Studebaker Cars, Studebaker for the
fifth time in its history, conclusively proves its ability to produce high class
cars at moderate prices.
Incorporating a series of refinements in the general design, these cars
stand supreme as the QUALITY cars of the season typical exemplars of
the highest development of automobile production by one of the world's
' ablest and most highly organized manufacturing institutions.
Greatly increased volume coupled with Studebaker's unexcelled manu
facturing facilities and experience in designing and manufacturing motor cars
of the highest quality have e-abled us to offer these new Series 17 models at
attractively low prices.
But it has long been axiomatic in the industry that Studebaker QUAL
ITY is never to be measured by Studebaker PRICE and the new SERIES
17 cars are only to be considered on standards of quality applying to cars for
which you are willing to pay much higher prices as the highest achieve
ments of this GREAT manufacturing institution that for 64 years has held
the esteem of the world as a QUALITY manufacturer.
We urge every man who expects to buy a car, no matter at what price, to
see the new SERIES 17 models before he decides. More than 3,000 of the
Studebaker Dealers are prepared to give demonstrations NOW.
