There can be no assurance given against an advance in these
prices at any time. We guarantee, however, that there will be
no reduction in these prices prior to Aug. 1, 1916.
On August 1, 1914 we made the announcement that if we could
l lake and sell at retail 300,000 Ford cars between August 1,
1914 and August 1, 1915 we would share profits with the re
tail purchasers, to the extent of from ?40 to $60 on each car.
We have sold over 300,000 Ford cars in the time specified, and
profit-sharing checks of $50 each will be distributed as rapidly
ns possible after August 15, 1915. Retail purchasers who haye
not yet mailed us their profit-sharing coupons, properly en
dorsed, should do so without delay.
Our plan to profit-share with retail purchasers of Ford cars
during 1914-15 has been most successful. We thoroughly be
lieve in it, but, realizing the uncertainty of conditions general
ly makes it advisable to defer any announcement of future
profit-sharing until a later date.
We are, however, confident of our inability to reduce costs for
several months, and therefore can offer no profit-sharing for
cars delivered during August, September and October 1915.

Such attacks constitute a
line of action that will not be
countenanced by the rank and
file of republicans. The mass
of republican voters do not
wish their party used as an
annex to the electric trust any
more than do they approve of
using the party to tighten the
cinch of the shipping mono
poly to the end the producers
of the nation may be robbed
of their logical profits.
If the so-called leadership
of the republican party insists
on using the party machinery
to obstruct the sane and just
constructive measures of the
present administration they
will bring about a state of af
fairs wherein the average re
publican voter will be com
pelled in self defense to vote
for a continuance of democrat
ic rule.
