Helectlng a significant trade name for
a motor car la about aa simple a pro
ceeding as predicting the result of the
Presidential campaign! er picking a
pennant winner In the big league.
With trade name valued by their
owners at from a few thousands up to
he million mark. It would seem that
the choice of a name for a motor car
would come In for serious consideration
Yet the roster of American automobtlM
Indicates that most motor ear nam
have very little meaning aside from
Identifying the product with the maker.
One of the newest companies to enter
the field, the Liberty Motor Car Company
of Detroit, has made a particularly
happy selection. According to Percy
Owen, president and generat manager of
the company, the word Liberty was hit
upon only after hundreds of names had
been considered and rejected.
A closer tnstzht Into the workings of
the Liberty organisation discloses tK'
real basis for the name, for the com
pany has looked to the earlier days of
our nation's history for Inspiration In
"Three things pointed to the word Lib-
erty as the logical choice, said Owen.
Tint, the governing rules for the con
duet of the company's business are laid
down slong lines which show a reversion
to the rigid principles of earlier tlmus.
Then, too, the Liberty car Itself In the
tines of Its design depicts a tendency
toward Colonial simplicity. Those two
factors 111 conjunction with the extrem
simplicity In chassis construction which
our designers have achieved, with the
resuttlng suggestion of freedom from
trouble, Indicated Liberty as a very logi
cal choice. The name has an even
greater significance during these days of
International difficulties, and the word
Is on every one's tongue."
Humor haa It that the Liberty will
very appropriately be shown for ths first
time on July 4 In leading cities all ovr
the United States.
