than the issue of capital stock.
It shows 28,617 shareholders In

Local financial circles were
amazed when the figures became
public becguse It was known that
the Durant Interests were financing
their various enterprises inde

with no underwriting and with
out the aid of the bank.
It was understood that the first
offering of the stock had been
made in personal letters from Mr.
Durant to his friends and that the
entire issue had been oversub
scribed within forty-eight hours,
but the widespread distribution of
the stock indicating the extraor

the biggest surprise the "Street"

It means that you are protected upon every point by a

Rated High all Over the World
Almost everywhere abroad?east or west?
you will find a decided preference for tlie
Hupmobile as representative of the best
that America produces.
Why do foreign lands rate the Hupmobile so
high? For precisely the same reasons it is
rated high at home?its recognized value, its
recognized ability, its low costs anditslong life.
Most of all, perhaps, for its splendid self
reliance, which makes the Hupmobile a
favorite for travel through wild and spars
ely settled regions.
It is this quality of self-reliance which
above all its other remarkable attributes,
has won the lasting admiration of motor ~ -
car buyers everywhere.
