Confirmation of no Decline in
Prices Dodge Bros. Motor Cars
Official confirmation of press dis- !
patches from Detroit, announcing
that there would be no reduction in
the price sof Dodge Bros., Motor
cars has been received by Mr. H. H.
Hill, the Dodge Bros., dealer in this
city. A telegram from C. W. Mathe
son, acting general sales manager to
the local dealer reads:
"Dodge Brothers' policy has ever
been to give full value for the price
asked. There will be no reduction's
in the present prices of Dodge Broth
ers' motor cars. Newspaper reports
to the contrary are absolutely un
Dodge Brothers' announcement
was no surprise to me, said Mr. Hill
in fact it is only a substantiation of
Dodge Brothers' business principles.
At no time have they ever demanded
an excess amount for their product.
As in the past, they will continue to
demand a fair return for their eff
The mere fact that the demand for
Dodge Brothers' motor cars are still]
greater than the supply, despite the
great expansion program at the fac
tory has absolutely nothing to do
with the decision to continue the
present prices. In marketing their
car, Dodge Brothers have never made
a point of price and will never sac
rifice the quality of their product to
enter price competition.
