SECRET OF SUCCESS
Overland Company Builds Better
Car at Lower Price Because
of Single Model
The men who lead In all professions
whether they he doctors, lawyers, en
gineers or soldiers, are those who
have concentrated on a certain line
of study. It stands to reason that the
man who decides on his career will,
by close application and concentration
outdo the man who is interested in
several things at once.
According to John N. Willys, presi
dent of the Willys-Overland Co., this
same principle holds good in the
manufacturing 'of automobiles. A
plant can operate more economically
and efficiently by concentrating its
entire manufacturing facilities on the
parts of a single model, for it thus
simplilles the work In every depart
ment. It means that hundreds of
big machines can be set to certain di
mensions without having to be
changed from one day to another. It
means that the manufacturer upon aj
definite number of cars coming j
through on schedule time. The me
chanics themselves become more ex
port and skilful through handling the
same parts day after day and the
whole organization runs smoothly be
cause there is nothing to cut in on the
regular duties of each man.
The Willvs-Overland Company will
produce 50,000 cars this year of a
single model. This new car is de
signed along the lines of the 1913
model, except that the chassis has
been changed to allow for a more
powerful motor and longer wheelbase.
The body has been improved with a'
full cowl dash, flush U doors with
disappearing hinges, and new wind
With all these improvements in
power, design and equipment, the
price of this year's Overland has been
lowered to $950. And the result
promises to be the same as in pre
vious years, when the Willys-Over
land Company will market its entire
production simply because it antici
pated the demands of the people, who
are continually demanding more ear
for less money.
Three Case Cars Will

Several Eastern drivers and special

A "SIX" AND A "FOUR"
FORM COMPLETE LINE
Each Will Retain Pre-eminence
For Work to Which It |
BY ARTHUR I. PIIIMP
Sales Manager, The Mudebaker Cor
There was a time when the mention
of six cylinders conveyed to the auto
mobile buyer a mental image of great
size, tremendous weight, the employ
ment of a regular chauffeur, big
maintenance charges and a first cost
ranging from $3,000 to $6,000.
Six cylinders were then a natural
accompaniment of wealth. Men of
moderate means could appreciate
them from a distance only.
But that time is past. For more '
than a year, Studebaker has been
building a thoroughly reliable and
fuly equipped light "Six" which has
been retailing by thousand, nil over
the world, at a sales price of $1,576,
F. O. B. Detroit. While the Stude- i
baker is the lowest priced "Six" on J
the market, there has been a general
downward trend in all "Six" priceß.
These concessions and the resulting i
"Six" popularity have caused a num
ber of manufacturers to elimimnate
the production of four-cylinder cars
altogether, centralizing on the type
best fitted for usp in a seven-passen
ger car where a large surplus of
power is demanded.
• This assured popularity of the light
"Six" has apparently bred in the
minds of the public a belief that, in
time, the six-cylinder car may force
the "Four" entirely into the back
ground, as the "Four" did the two
cylinder cars of seven or eight years
ago, and as the two-cylinder car did
the "one-lungers" of • the earliest
During the past year we have re
ceived a great amount of correspond
ence, indicating that, in the minds of
the general public, there was a gen
uine doubt regarding the functions of
the two types of motor. Expressions
of this sort have probably come to us
in especially large quantities, due to
the fact that we have built and are
now building large quantities of both
"Fours" and "Sixes."
In every case where opportunity
has offered, we have declared em
phatically that, in our opinion, the
the "Six" will never crowd the "Four"
into oblivion. Until some revolution
ary improvement in motor engineer
ing takes place, there will always be
a legitimate demand for six-cylinder
and four-cylinder cars.
That the light, popular priced "Six"
has had a very distinct influence on
determining the type of "Four" which
will supply the demands of the fu
ture, canrfot, however, be denied.
The "Six" defies competition on its
own ground. High power and six
cylinders are already synonymous.
When one speaks of seven-passenger
capacity, a "Six" is always implied.
The motorist who is willing to pay
something in addition to the minimum
price to secure flexibility, reserve
power, comfort and luxury will be a
"Six" buyer. There will always be a
large class to whom this type of a
car will appeal.
But there remains a still larger
class of buyers who will always be
content with four cylinders. They are
ready to accept a car of five-passen
ger capacity, and are willing to make
four cylinders answer their uses, even
though occasional gear changes in
thick traffic and on the steepest hills
may be implied. They want the ab
solute minimum on gasoline and oil
consumption. The SSOO which they
save in first cost amounts to more
than the superiority of the "Six" from
their point of view.
This class will always buy "Fours."
And the "Fours" it will buy will be
cars of five-passenger capacity or
less; cars into which manufacturers
have put the highest quality of mate
rials consistent with rock-bottom
prices; cars designed to bring the
greatest possible efficiency in miles
per gallon of fuel; cars that, in_ spite
of their low price will come to'their
owners carefully trimmed and fin
ished, and fully equipped with all
motoring conveniences, including
electric starting and lighting system,
left-hand steer, center control and
every other development that renders
a car thoroughly up-to-date.
In the cases of both the "Four"
and the "Six," price is yearly play-y
ing a more important part.
When motoring was new, price
standards were elastic and the adroit
salesman could always make the most
of exclusive features of design. As
the cars themselves have become
more alike, and as prospective buy
ers Jiave learned to discount sales
talk, price has become an increasingly
I vital element Now a buyer must be
| shown a dollar's worth of additional
| value for every dollar in purchase
price, nor is it easy to delude him
longer with any subterfuge.
To sell cars cheaply, manufacturers
must produce both "Fours" and
"Sixes" in great quantities. Of this
fact the public has become fully aware.
One of the marked trends of the mar
ket during the last year has been this
increased wisdom regarding manu
facturers—their scope, permanence
' and financial stability. These ele
ments too play an active part in nearly
KNOWING THE CHANNEL
It is well known that in the bed of
the St. .Lawrence river, the outlet of
the Great Lakes, there are in many
I places masses of rocks that make its
| navigation dangerous except to relia
'able men whose knowledge of the safe
! channels is unquestioned. A passeng
|er on one of its steamers was plying
j its captain with questions as to the
safety of the Journey, and at length
| "Captain, do you know where all
the rocks are in this river?"
In his patient, deliberate manner,
he replied: "No, ma'am, I don't know
where all the rocks are, but I know
where the channel is." Christian

"There is every reason to believe
that 1914 will be the greatest year in
the history of motorcycling," declares
the manager of the West End Electric
& Cycle Co., distributor of the Indian.
"Millions want to motor, but the ma
jority cannot afford even cheap auto
mobiles, and to this class the motor
cycle is the key to the pleasures of
all outdoors at a cost within their

000 machines, or over 50 per cent,
more than were built in 1912. This
year will see a production of over
100,000 motorcycles, of which 60,000
will be built by the Hendee Mfg. Co.,
makers of the Indian. There is no
question but that the market will ab
sorb this output for In the past the
manufacturers never have been able
to fully supply the demand.
"Motorcycle tours across the conti
nent are ordinary affairs nowadays,
while a few years ago a trip across
the State by a motorcyclist was an
event of unusual importance. The
answer is that as machines were im

and undertook long distance trips as

"In commercial pursuits the mo
torcycle ia meeting certain require
ments more efficiently than the auto
mobile. Therefore the popularity of
the motorcycle is founded on its ef
ficiency in business as well as its low
cost for pleasure. The year just
closed marked a tremendous growth
in motorcycling as compared with
"Motorcycles have been adopted in
every line of business where quick
transportation is demanded. They
start quick, stop quick, are easily con
trolled, possess tremendous power and
speed, are economical to operate and
will penetrate paths which the four
wheeler cannot enter.
"Mechanically the motorcycle has
kept pace with the automobile in de
velopment. The 1914 models have
electric starters, electric lights, eloc
ttic signals, full equipment, cradle
spring frames, footboards, two speed
gears, long wheelbares, large tires, in
creased power and numerous minor
refinements which make them won
derfully easy riding, silent and clean."
1914 Four-cylinder Cars
Vastly Outnumbered Sixes
"Why so much discussion about
whether 1914 is a four or six cylinder
year?" said E. C. Howard, Cadillac
"It is not a subject which calls for
discussion. It la simpy a question of
"There are only two conditions
which can determine the question:
One is that either the 'four' or the
'six' shall outnumber the other In
quantity of production. The other is
that the value of the output of either
shall exceed the other.
"All makers of consequence have
laid out their plans. They have made
estimates of what they contemplate
producihg. These estimates, collected
by automobile trade publications,
show that for every other six cylinder
car already produced or to be pro
duced during the 1914 season, there
wil be from eight to ten four cylinder
"From a dollars and ronts stand
point these estimates likewise show
that the selling value of the 'fours'
will be from two to three times the
