the Car that DETROIT Likes
Better than any other In the World
In Detroit, where people KNOW cars, more Studebakoni
are in use than any other can listing at mare than $500l
This is significant
For the simple reason that Detroit is the Home of Auto»
mobiles. More than three-fourths of the cars manu*
factored in the United States are made in Detroit.
ji Detroit a BIG percentage of the residents are either
directly engaged in the motor industry—or come into
DAiLY contact with people who are.
They talk cars. They study cars. They hear go—ip from all the
jrtst factories eatabliaJ»ed the city. They know the plants sod
the efficiency of the znacafectaring organisations. They know
the men back of the cars.
And as a whole, knowledge of automobiles is fcr mora general
EXACT in Detroit than in any other city on the earth.
So when you know that for the entire year of 1913,

The Bible says: "The Lord hath laid

The Bible teaches that Christ
through death destroyed htm that had

death to life for our justification.

Jesus a refuge from His foes, and a
