A statement of Dodge Brothers
war activities is due the owners
of their cars.
Dodge Brothers refrained, during;
the progress of the war, from any
reference to the performance of
the car in Government service,
It seems proper now, however,
to disclose the facts, because they
are unusual facts?intensifying
that good will which owners of
Dod<?"e Brothers Cars have always
o
manifested.
Dodge Brothers car was the only
one or its class approved and
adopted by the War Department.
In a separate Ordnance Works,
built especially for the purpose,
costing millions of dollars and
employing thousands of their
skilled motor workmen, Dodge
Brothers undertook an important
duty designated by the War
Department.
' .. .. .
Without the aid of their great
motor organization, Dodge.
Brothers could not have fulfilled
the heavy obligation which they
were asked to assume by the
Ordnance Department.
The other service required of
Dodge Brothers motor works, by
the Government, was to continue
to furnish their cars as they were
needed.
They were furnished, not in
hundreds, but in thousands?both
for the training camps here, and
for service in Belgium, France
and Italy.
The record of those thousands of
camp and army cars is one in
which any owner may feel the
utmost pride and satisfaction.
Their performance justified the
compliment implied in their
selection by the Government.
The gicba wuiks ill which, nearly
three hundred thousand of their
cars have been produced in the
past four years furnished a vast
store-house of human energy
and equipment for the ordnance
work.
Naturally, it will take time to
adjust the motor works to its full
accustomed activity,. v>>... -
Gradually .Dodge .Bjothers will
resume the grateful task of .con
tinuing to deserve the good will
of America?and indeed of the
whole world.
Dodge Brothers consider good will
their most valuable possession.
They will never knowingly do
anything to lessen it,
