this increase will not heroine cfl'ec
tive until September 15th.
Materials entering into the con
struction of Studebaker cara havi
advanced anywhere from 25 to 101
per cent and in eome instances,
considerably more. Because ol
large purchases, and long term
contracts for raw materials made
last summer, we are able to'eon
tinue our present low prices. But
at the present rate of production
and the popular demand for 8tud
baker cars which is rapidly ex
hausting all materials purchased
at old prices, it is necessary for us
to announce the increased pi ices to
take effect September 5th.
It has always been a hard and
fast Studebaker policy to give the
customer the beuefit of low prices
as long as possible and I want to
make it clear that we arr increas

the increase in the cost of manu
