More Honest worlcrnanship, more care of design, more finish,
' - more dependability, a greatly advanced type, an engine that is sim- t
pie anjd accessible, compact, and complete in every detail.' These
. are the features ttiat unquestionably stamp the White as "The '
Quality Car." .'"',".
' The simplicity which is preeminent in the White- motor is a
- feature that-must be followed closely by bthefmrnufacturers. ' By
, reason of this, feature, the White stands in a class by itself. Its
connections are few, therefore the wear and tear that is bound to 4
- . be given it has far less opportunity to lessen the efficiency of its
V engine., - - . , -
" Becausejt is simple, it is compact, and because it h compact, it r
is accessible. ' No unnecessary pipes or valves,. no unnecessary nuts
or screws to rattle loose, but rather simplified perfection in every
delail. . . " , ,
It is the. object of the White Company to place on the market
; a car that by its inherent value will occupy and fill a niche of its '
own, and one hot occupied by any American car in the country.
Demand "follows quality, and it is through White1 dependable
. - qualityihat the White has taken its place in the lead. " , 7
