An Open Letter to the Editor
From the President o f General Motors
L
ast S P R IN G I w rote you th a t m y belief
In th e country new spaper had led us in G eneral
M otors to decide to advertise our products
together in th e sm all-city press of th e country.
T he retu rn s from tb e series of th e messages
recently published have justified th a t faith;
and we shall continue to advertise in your
com m unity through your new spaper th is fell.
I t occurs to me, how ever, th a t some of your
readers m ay be asking: “ W hat is G eneral
M otors?” and “ W hy is G eneral M otors?”
These are fair questions an d I should like to
answ er th e m as frankly as I can.
G eneral M otors was organized some years
ago on th e theory t h a t a group o f large com ­
panies, w orking together, could render a b etter
service th a n th e y could separately. In this we
sim ply applied to in d u stry a principle th a t is
as old as civilization a s regards th e hum an
family a n d hum an progress.
Original m em bers c f th e G eneral M otors
fam ily were E uick, Cadillac, C hevrolet, O ak­
land an d Cldsm obile, to g ether w ith th e Delco-
L ight C om pany an d o th e r well-known com­
panies m anufacturing autom otive equipm ent.
By joining together th e ir resources, w e were
able to establish great R esearch L aboratories,
a 1245-acre P roving G round and th e G M A C
P lan of credit purchase; to effect v a st econ­
omies in purchase an d m anufacture and
d istrib u tio n ; to assure an d m aintain th e q u a lity
o f every product in th e G eneral M otors family.
H as th e G eneral M otors fam ily principle
proved itself in practice?
T he best answ er, I th in k , is to com pare th a
C hevrolet, Buick, Cadillac, Oldsmobile and
O akland o f today w ith th e models of five or
te n years ago.
T hen add P ontiac, a G eneral M otors crea­
tion. A dd LaSalle, another G eneral M otors
creation. A nd th e n consider h o ia G e n e ra l
M otors has developed these cars i n w a com ­
plete line, w ithin which an y fam ily m ay find
a suitable q u a lity car a t th e price it plans to
pay : ‘,‘A C ar for E v ery P urse an d P urpose.”
A nother exam ple is Frigidaire, the electric
refrigerator. G eneral M otors h a d th e resources
to spend millions to develop a satisfactory
refrigerator, and th e n to apply to its m anu­
facture th e sam e processes w hich have in ­
creased th e u tility and lowered th e cost of the
autom obile.
W e believe th a t this record justifies General
M otors as a n economic institution. I ts prod­
ucts are q u a lity products, first o f all. T heir
prices represent th e economies o f united effort
passed on to th e purchaser. In th e last year one
in each th ree autom obiles chosen b y th e public
has been a G eneral M otors car. T he service o f
D elco-Light electric p lan ts has extended to
more th a n a q u a rte r m illion homes, while
Frigidaire has become th e wor’d ’3 largest sell­
ing convenience o f its kind.
W e believe also th a t th e values now offered
in th e c u rre n t G eneral M otors products
(which are listed below) prove anew th a t
“m any m inds are b e tte r th a n one” ’an d th a t a
fam ily o f com panies, w orking together, can
produce results which are decidedly in the
public in terest and of increasing benefit to the
individual fam ily.
