1 TTE i " I V, II" I
JUST about a year ago we published, in your
advertising columns, a message in which we
sought to give you and your readers an idea of
what General Motors is and what it is trying to
accomplish. At that time the public was purchas
ing our cars at the rate of about one in every three ;
and our Frigidaire automatic refrigerator and
Delco-Light electric plants were leading in popular
preference in their respective fields.
Since then each of our car divisions has intro
duced new, further improved models and public
patronage has reached the point where almost
one out of two automobiles purchased is a General
Motors car. Frigidaire and Delco-Light products
have showed comparable increases in sales.
The reason for this is two-fold. First, the public
wants value for its automobile dollar and recog
nizes value when it is given. Second, General
Motors is seeking so to conduct its operations as
to deserve the goodwill of the public.
We are particularly impressed with the number
of letters which have come to us from editors
of small city newspapers during recent months.
These editors, who are in a position to reflect
local sentiment, speak of the goodwill which
attaches to General Motors in their communities
and express an obviously sincere appreciation of
the character of General Motors' advertising in
For our advertising has been as much concerned
with giving your readers facts of helpfulness to
them in the purchase of automobiles as with the
merits of our own products. Our messages have
set forth the principles of trade-in transactions
and used car allowances. They have dealt with
time payments and the change in the public's
attitude toward the used car. , Other messages
have told of the policies of General Motors and
of how our resources are being employed to effect
That General Motors enjoys the goodwill of
the people in the small cities and on the farms of
America gives us an especial satisfaction and -confidence
in the future. It is in the country
sections of the United States that half our popu
lation lives. It is there that the whole industry
must look in increasing measure for maintenance
of the production volume upon which high values
and low prices depend. And it is there that
General Motors is paying particular attention to
its facilities for sales and service.
To our friends in your community we express
