WHERE TO PARK
thscussion starter at rotary
cluk continued else
where. What to do with our automobiles Is
ho question now being discussed in
North Platte business circles. Tho
number of cars is increasing so fast
and tho sjmco taken by them when
they are parked on tho pavements is
so great that tho problem is no more
than settled ono way when it comes up
again from a new angle.
About a year ugo, parking in tho
center of the street was ordered,
largely upon tl request of tho busi
ness men of the city. There is now
a strong sentiment in favor of park
ing tho cars at tho curb, especially on
tho main streets. Last Saturday af
ternoon thoro was not room enough in
tho center of tho streets in tho paved
district for all tho cars that wero to
be parked. There arc evidently strong
arguments for and ' against center
parking as thoro aro strong argu
ment for and against curb parking.
Tho final decision must be a balanc
ing up of these arguments and tho
selection of tho side which appeals to
ous best judgment.
Three main arguments arc advanc
ed against center street parking. Some
say that it is dangerous to have peo
ple crossing tho way left open for
traffic In order to reach the cars in
the center of tho street. Others say it
is dangerous tothocaf when it is being
hacked out Into tho way of cars com
ing up from behind. Again it Is ar-j-dod
that It is unsightly and not at all
like a city to have street centers full
Those opposed to curb parking de
clare that cars standing in front of
theatres, hotels, business houses and
shops block the way from the street
4o (he entrances and prevent tho de
livery of goods and the ontranco of
customers. Again they say that a car
is often locked in its placo by having
other cars in front and also back of
Other arguments are advanced on
both"sides. It is evident that all dis
cussion of tho matter must take Into
account that we do not have street
cars in tho middle of the streets and
therefore what is done in downtown
districts of cities does not apply hero.
It is also evident that a different
treatment of the question might be
accorded to the side streets from that
on the main streets. Curb parking
might be parallel or at an angle. Cer
tain places might bo kept clear of
curb parking while other places could
be used. It is up to tho citizens to let
the Council know their sentiment and
tho Council should take such action
as Its judgment dictates.

of tho Mayor and Council in issuing
bonds to tho sum of ton thousand dol
lars for building an addition to tho
Firo Station. A speclnl election has
boon called for next Tuesday, Oct.

that an addition may bo built to tho
Firo Station in order to accommodato
tho Volunteer Firemen.
When tho Stnto Firo Inspector wns
hero recently ho complimented tho de
partment on Its good work and good
luck in handling Arcs and expressed
his opinion that mora men should bo
quartered at tho Station at night in a
city of this size. Tho citizens of this
city want tho best lire protection it
is possible to have and they are will
ing to pay for it.
Tho plan of tho Firo boys is to build
an addition on tho south end of tho
building with two stalls for additional
equipment on the first iloor. On tho
second floor they want several sleep
ing rooms. There are plenty of mon
in North Platte, who have to rent
sleeping quarters and who would bo
willing to servo the Department If
free sleeping quarters were provided.
This is the plan for enlarging tho de
partment so it will bo adequate to
fight any lire that we might have.
Tho North Platte Volunteer Firo
Department has a long and honorablo
record of service and now appeals to
tho voters to give it tho equipment to
attract enough men to hold Us -own

SALVATION ARMY ADOPTS NEW
FINANCIAL PLAN FOR LINCOLN
"Tho drivo system, moro proporly
termed the annual appeal for funds,"
says Brigadier William Androws, tho
Chlof Divisional Officer of tho Salva
tion Army, Iowa-Nebraska Division,
In an lntcrwiow Inst night, "hus not
been adopted, as 1b generally bollovod,
bccatiso it is an ensy(way of raising
money but because it has been proven
to bo tho most economical and effic
ient mothod. Tho Salvation Army was
financed formerly by passing tho tam
bourine, day In and day out, by local
officers Tho result was that ovor
one-half, of tho thno of our officers,
who aro trained for rollof wofk was
consumed In nsking for money. Then
too, vnrlous organizations adopted
uniform similar to our own and sol
icited In tho nnmo of somo "army."
Tho general public believing it was
giving to tho Salvation Army, an
nually gavo thousands of dollars to
"nrmios" whoso only Interest In tho
public was how much money thoy
could get out of It. To stop this
fraudulent collection of money wo
Instituted tho ono annual campaign.
Other reasons' which have led us to
uso this method aro:
1. It Is good business. When our
funds aro gathered and placed In tho
'reasury at a special tlmo of tho year
wo can outline our work a year In
advance, nnd thus bo far moro of-.
Ilclont and economlcnlJ Formerly our r
expenses wero guossd at from day to
day. Now wo run on the budgot sys
tem. This saves-tho peoplo of Nebras
ka thousands of dollars and cnnblCB
us to reach hundreds of people who
woro not reached before.
2. It docs away with fraudulent so
licitation. Through publicity wc
have Informed tho peoplo; of Nebraska
that thero 1b but ono solicitation an
nually In tho nnmo of tho Snlvatlon
Army and consequently public offici
als can arrest anyone representing
hlmsolf to be a Salvation Army officer
