Cut-off on Lincoln Highway
C. H. Lindburg, of Polk, spent Fri
day III town Interesting auto men In
a proposed cut-off on tho Lincoln
highway which would shorten by
twenty imllos tha distance between
Omaha and Central City. This cut
off starts at Valley and drops south to
Valparaiso and thoneo straight west
through ulyssos, Stromsburg nnd Polk
to Contml City. This avoids tho big
end at Fremont and North Bend. This
cut-off, however, does not supersede
tho regular Lincoln Highway route
from Omaha via Fremont, but simply
.shortens the routo for those who care
to take advantage of tho cut-off, and
It Is bolloved will make the Lincoln
