tlie hase- Lull same here yesterday,
an.! did a sood. job of it, with but
men during the ninth and one in
the latter part of the eighth.
Hushenberg, the catcher for the
visitors, got foxy in the ninth in
ning, capering around First Base
man Stimpson and .was sent to the
benches for interference with an op
posing player. '
A number of complaints came 'on
account of the failure of the games
to begin on time. With the con
tinued wind blowing Platte river
sand into the eyes of everyone, as it
has done the past several Sundays,
the siege of sitting through nine in
nings is tiresome enough of itself to
say nothing of a long wait for the
game to begin.
Stimpson, while not being at his
best, fought under adverse condi
tions and put up an excellent game
under the circumstances. Joe Mc
Carthy, while missing one in ' the
field, did good work there. A double

That this proposition, like the
coming of the automobile, is des
tined to see wonderful development
and go a long ways toward solving
the transportation problem in years
to come is quite certain. It is past
the experimental stage already, and
for some time has been operated with
suecess between many eastern cities
and towns. In fact, right at Omaha,
it is proving profitable to men oper
ating independently, as attested by
the following article which we clip
from a recent issue of the Bee:
"A number of cities within the
radius of Omaha trade territory are
urtrinsr the local Chamber of Com
merce to encourage the interurban
motor truck freight service.
"Since early this spring a number
of motor truck lines have been start
ed, operating between Omaha and
towns and cities out 20 to Su miles
The service is as yet irregular, and
a move is on foot to bring about the
adoption of regular running schedul
es in order that shippers may know
when to have their consignments
"It is said many of the men oper
ating trucks are making money
This is especially true when they
arc able to load in both directions.'

From Tuesday's Daily.
The next time you go down the
street or out onto the highways, the
scenery, the conditions and the busi
ness may have changed a lot, to say
nothing of the changed state of so
ciety, etc. To meet changed condi
tions, changed mehod.s of overcoming
them, must logically be employed
The I mted States entered into
this war with one hand tied, so to
speak, through a record of cones'ei
railroads, .made only the worre by
shortage of freight cars, and with
coal and food -movements taking up
largely the available hauling facili
ties of the lines. Our entry into the
war created these same new condi
tions that confront us on every hand
from day to day. For once we join
ed hands to defeat the Kaiser, it be
came necessary to divert much of our
transportation facilities to the haul
ing of troops and getting supplies to
them and to, the Alantic seaboard for
shipment overseas. The situation be
came no better fast and soon the gov
ernment had to take over the rail
roads of the nation, which it did on
December 2Sth. Some of the prob
lems confronting them at that time
have been overcome, while others
have grown only the more aggre
vated with the passing of time and
its increasing demand made upon th
roads as the wants ot a nation at
war have increased.
And so Ihe fact remains, that de
spite the best efforts of the road
working together in unison, there is
still a marked congestion of freight
trafic. In many places motor truck
are being resorted to as effective
aids to the movement of nierchan
dise, and,' given good roads ove
which to travel, they are proving
wonderfully efficient. Tlie disposi
tion at present is to confine their
usefulness largely to the short-haul
business, thus relieving cars and
train crews to engage in the Ions
er aim more necessary hauls. It is
conceded that if they can go loaded
both ways, journeys into the conn
try over a radius of a hundred miles
can he made profitable to the opera
tors of such a system of transportation.
A movement is on foot to have at
the center of such circles or zones of
transport, a central truck freight
depot or assembling station, from
which the loading of trucks can be
done. Then. too. alone th route of
travel, smaller collecting and dis
tributing facilities can be provided
quite readily. The road problem is
c.-r-eni ia. i hi i ne working out oi a
time schedule, especially at some
seasons of the year, but at others it
is o? little consequence, as there art
times when all roads arc good.
l'p possibilities of the truck are
almost unlimited. As to just what
it can do, we accept as evidence of
ibility it own testimony laid bare on
the witness stand of perfonuance,
when it sas:
"I am the motor truck; I came out
of the necessity of orourei'.s: I was
bom to follow the will of wisdom
ind fake burden.", from the tired
lacks of beasts; I brought speed to

or in any kind of traffic, as for the grace of its body designs, the
comfort of its deep-cushioned seats and the beauty of its

Thousands of women drive Chandlers; and, even though
they may not know the why of its mechanical excellence, they
know and appreciate the extraordinaryquality of this great car.
