With a tree for a town hall
WHEN the Overland Trail was
the busiest highway in America,
with thousands of Mormons on their
way,and endless wagon trains, with tens
of thousands of gold seekers bound
for California, and home-seekers head
ing for the Oregon country, a single
cottonwood growing near the present
site of Central City was a landmark on
the long, weary journey.
Afterward, in the early homestead
ing days of Nebraska, this tree served
as a community center where public
questions were discussed and neighbor
hood business transacted.
The railroad passed close by. But
not for away were the tepees of the
Sioux. Battle, murder and sudden death
claimed many of the brave pioneers—
both men and women—who laid the
foundations of prosperous, peaceful
Paved streets, electric lights, comfort
able homes shaded by trees, and the
luxuries of modern civilization which
central cores or
munities enjoy today, are
the result and the reward
of the bold pioneer spirit.
It drives Nebraska for
ward to new triumphs.

advertisements in which
historic spots and incidents in
Nebraska history will befeatured.

Today, Nebraska has an automobile
and a telephone for every five inhabi
tants. The average value of a Nebraska
farm is three times the value ofthe average
farm throughout the nation. Her annual
income from agricultural products ex
ceeds half a billion dollars. The income
from her other industries is even larger.
Here is a proud record and an inspiration.
When the sod houses rose on the
buffalo plains in all parts of the state,
there came the need of oil for the lamps
and lanterns and later for the labor
saving oil cook stoves and heaters.
With the coming of automobiles, trac
tors and i ndividual home lighting plants
and water systems, convenient supplies
of gasoline became a necessity.
In the development of a state-wide
service of supply, first of kerosene and
later of gasoline and lubricating oils for
all purposes, the Standard Oil Company
of Nebraska was the pioneer, sharing
both hard times and prosperity.
Directed and operated in and for
Nebraska, the Standard
Oil Company of Nebraska
is a Nebraska institution
that seeks to render ser
vice adequate to the needs
of every community in the
state—to every resident.
