A Fourth of July celebration
usually proves to lie cillicr a bit
lioost or a hard knock for the
town thai Rives it. The result
depends upon whether the cele
bration delivers the Roods as ad
vertised and really entertains and
ileuses the people. No worse
mistake could be made than to Ret
people into your town under false
pretenses. People expect circuses
and mail order houses to cxhr
Berate, but. they will not stand for
it from their home business men.
Make your celebration just n little
belter than advertised and you'll
fcurcly win. Omaha Trade F.x
