A Trip Through the Overland Plants Would
Make You Realize the Value of the Car They Turn Out CThe value of all things is determined by contrast. No matter what you are comparing, in your mind is a certain standard from which you are judging. It may he a sewing machine, washing machine or a talking machine. As you look and think it over, the standard of that article constantly stands out before you. And standard is merely the recognized value of anything that has become permanent by virtue of its superior merit. £T Today in motor car manufacturing circles, most things are judged from the Overland P standard. There are more than 25,000 Overlands in use right; now, and each owner would have no other car. Overland efficiency is directly due to the scientific management of the largest automobile plants in the world. The Overland factories cover over 30 acres and employ 4000 men.
