"One cannot talk about closed
bodies without mentioning the se

close competitor in popular favor.
It used to be that the touring car
came first and the roadster next,
but that day has gone by, and the
sedan has displaced the roadster
from second place. There is a good
reason for this, too. The number
of peoplo who used their cars ns-j

rapidly. The great period of recon

one these days wants to take the
time-to nut up side curtains when
ever the Weather looks had of when
it becomes cold and stormy. ♦
"The growing popularity of the
sedan ahd the fact that it may yet
dominate motordom is of course due
to the combinations of utility, com
fort, convenience and splendid ap
pointments which the better cars of
this type now offer.
"Body builders have kept pace
with" the of chasses and
motprjjjr with the result that the
moder;n enlosed car is hetther heavy
nor j cumbersome. The Studebaker
Light-Four Sedan, for instance, is
so light in weight and perfectly
that it is in the same class
as the stock Light-Four touring
car., It weighs but little more, and
in the most regorius service owners
have found that it gives- the same
characteristic performance of low
gasoline consumption, high tire
mileage and low upkeep expense.
"By merely lowering the plate
glass windows into the sides of tho
car, the Studebaker Sedan is quick
ly transformed from a snug and
cozy enclosed car to a comfortable,
open touring car. The transition
from one to the other has been re
duced to simplicity itself by means
of a novel mechanical device, op
erated from front or tonneau seats
by driver or passengers.
"A mellow cut glass dome light
in the tonneau ceiling, silk roller
curtains at windows and commo
dious pockets at each side of ton
neau scats, are but a few of the in
terior features that have contribut
ed so much to the popularity of the

"One of the first industries in the
| country to accommodate itself to
war conditions, the automobile busi
i ness bids fair to lead the field in
peace-time readjustment," says Vice-
Pyesident R. C. Rueschaw, of the
| Mitchell Motors Company, Inc., of
Racine, Wis.
"Not only were automobile man
ufacturers quick to adapt them
' selves to the economic changes
• brought on by the war, but the
1 swinging over of vast factories from
j automobile to munitions production
I was accomplished in an almost mi
raculously short time. Similarly, now
that peace is with us and we can re-
I turn to automobile building, no time
j is being lost in changing over."
"In the Mitchell plant, where we
i were on parctically 100 per cent, war
I work, with giant government trucks
I as our chief product, we are getting
back to passenger car production us
rapidly as circumstances will per
mit. Of course, aside from such gov
ernment contracts as remain to be
tilled, the conversion of a plant so
large as the mammoth Mitchell
shops is not the work of a day, but
I we are sparing no effort to make
the conversion period a short one. ]
"In a way, the devoting of our
plant to war work was one of the
best things that could have hap
pened to us," Mr. Rueschaw con
tinues. "It not oply made it pos
sible for us to hold our organization
intact, but moved with the common
spirit of doing their best to win the i
war, every man drew nearer to us
and to his fellows until we now have
a more closely knit body than ever
• "Then, too, working day in, day
out, under the exacting require
ments of the strictest kind of gov
ernment inspection, our men have
learned to do better work than even
they thought themselves capable of.
Certainly this improvement shows it
self plainly in the cars we'are now
building. The boys haven't'forgot
ten how to do good work!"
. "With the changes in the automo
bile manufacturing program, men
tioned above, a somewhat unsettled
market is inevitable and most manu
facturers are now more interested
in stabilizing the market than in im
mediate profits. In our case, we are
reducing our prices t6 a pre-war
basis, sacrificing our profit, in order
to help steady the situatibn against
the time when all the changes will
have beert made and values again
settle down to a normal level.
"That this situation, where we find
ourselves in position to offer our reg
ular product at prices far below
normal, is the buyers greatest oppor
tunity, goes without saying. And
it should be equally apparent that
this condition is bound to be of short
"The automobile industry as a
whole is about a million cars behihd
in its production which, coupled
with the prospect of an almost un
precedented demand foreseen for
spring, makes a serious-cart shortage
practicaly certain. In addition to
such a shortage the market will
naturally steady itself as time goes
on," concludes Mr. Ruesehgw, "So
afri^* 7 fater price changes will prob
ably be upward, therefore the early
buyer is getting the cream, right
