CHEVROLET COMPANY TO
GIVE BUYERS BENEFIT
OF QUANTITY OUTPUT
The Chevrolet Motor company has
just made announcement of a plan to
cooperate with the public In main
taining quantity production during
the spring and early summer so that
purchasers of Chevrolet cars may be
given the advantage of the saving
that is thus to be made. A statement
sent out by the company explains the
plan as follows:
"During the period of readjustment
the Chevrolet Motor company, mind
ful of its duty to its employes, its pa
trons and the general public nlike, re
frained from making any impulsive
prico change. They knew that a dras
tic cut, based on a gueBs as to future
conditions, could have only one effect
the destruction of the nation's buy
ing power? It would tear down public
confidence and stagnate the' move
ment of crops and merchandise. It
would, slash wages and visit suffering
and hardship on millions of people.
"But today conditions have changed.
Haw material prices have found new
low levels. Inventories have been re
adjusted to the bottom of the market
and it is therefore possible for the
company to make a definite proposi
tion .based on quantity production."

How Much Will Your
Spring Suit Cost?
For five years we had abnormal inflation in every line of business.
Materials and labor costs swept upward. Then a reaction set in. Prices
tumbled and tumbled.
Clothing, together with shoes and sugar, was among the first to feel
the pinch. Sales everywhere started to decrease about May of last year.
By October sales had fallen off more than at any corresponding time in
Then manufacturers threw their huge stocks on the market at prices
way below their cost of reproduction. We took our share in order to lower
the cost of the goods we already had and incidentally, in our small way,
to help keep the mills working.
Our customers reaped a harvest. They bought clothes at actually be
low wholesale cost.
But we are satisfied with the results. Our stocks were cleaned out
a cyclone could not have done the work more effectively.
And it is true that prices are low now. Spring prices are based upon
solid rock of replacement cost they are priced according to the new cost
of materials and labor.
Cut prices on quality clothing can be expected only where a surplus of
old goods has been left from last year. Manufacturers will make just
enough and no more, and the person who thinks there can be cut-price
bargains in new spring styles and patterns is mistaken.
There is but one way to satisfy yourself in regard to prices on our new
spring suits. Come in. Look at the label. Then look at the price. And
you will realize that here your money commands the greatest possible pur
