" 'Accessibility' is one of the most
abused words in the English language
when used in connection with an au
tomobile," said Mr. E. E. Bodge re
cently when approached- for informa
tion regarding the tmproyements to
be found onr. 1913 'cars. -"Every1 man

, The first. forerdoor car built in America was the Lozier
Lakewood, now in its fourth successful season. This inno
vation in design met whh the instant approval of the public
and foredoor bodies are row standard on all open cars, in
spite of the fact that manufacturers have never been able to
pet-feel; a fore-door holy en a right-hand drive car, because of
tho icsitio!i of the control levers.
The adoption of left-hand drive on the 1913 Lozier has made
it possible to place the gear-shifting and emergency brake
levers in the center of the car, in a position convenient to the
driver and st the same time, entirely out of the way of occu
pants of br!b front sats. The-bug-bear of the body designer
has been eliminated.
