Hairing been drawn into the argu
ment relative to the re-pavement of
Main street, and which we believe to
be the most important event ever
under consideration for the city, we
therefore desire to put ourselves on
record four square in the matter and
to make it clear Just what we stand
for on this and a few other matters
of general and -of scarcely less im
portant. 1. Ws believe that the beautifica
tion and accessability of our streets
will form an invaluable asset in the
future upbuilding of our city, there
fore Main street being the most im
portant, should now be re-construct-J
ed as a convex modern street and ;
improved in every possible way. If,
on the other hand, the proposition
cannot be financed at this time under
above considerations, we would favor
merely repairing the street as it now
stands and so continue until plans
and the Columbia.
Your business will be appreciated.

2. We will not endorse any plan
that does not first cover carefully
worked out specifications with accur
ate considerations in the taking care
of a very large percentage of storm
water from the beginning of the in
takes on the respective avenues, to
its discharge east of the railway
tracks and in which considerations
Main street would only be required !
to carry certain known excesses of;
water such as would be expected of j
any well constructed street. "We also ;
deem it 01 importance tnat Alain
ctreet be widened not less than six
feet (preferably eight feet). This
would give Main street a greatly in
creased water carrying capacity, ad
ditional room for traffic and permit
of parking automobiles against the
curb. Our sidewalks adjacent to
Main street nre entirely too wide,
hard to keep clean and in good level
3. We would not endorse any
plans that do not take into considera
tion adequate intakes on both ave
nues which they are not at this time,
and such intakes must be of rec
tangular construction of liberal di
mensions and placed at frequent in
tervals at curb, and with particular
reference to such intakes between
Fixth and Seventh at Vine street,
and Sixth and Seventh at Pearl
street, also Sixth street from Pearl
to Vine streets, also adequate curb
relief from Sixth to Fourth streets
on Main, all with sewerage capacity
to properly serve such intakes. It is
clear to all that the intakes west of
Sixth street are too small and where
both avenues approach Sixth street
and where the utmost relief is re
quired, and where such relief should
be expected little if any is found.
Thus practically the entire rush of
water is forced onto Main street,
making two right angle turns which
greatly retard the water and assist
in piling it up.
4. We would not endorse any
paving plan without the entire sewer
system was carefully computed with
a view of taking care of the known
volume of water which is at times
forced onto Main street and this sit
uation can only be accomplished by
a correctly proportioned sewer sys
tem from beginning to end.
We would not endorse mere in
takes in curbs at Sixth and Main
street, for as a single unit we do not
believe they will be adequate to take
the rush at that point unless suffi
cient intakes and ample sewers are
provided on the avenues west, there
fore the problem certainly resolves
itself first into the consideration of
proper sewer capacity covering the
whole system and area involved, thus
unless a proper foundation is laid.
all subsequent work will go for
naught and nothing will be gained
by merely remedying certain defects
existing only in the middle of the
system. We therefore claim that the
entire storm area should be carefully
rechecked by competent engineers,
proper sewerage plans be prepared
with ample factors of safety, and the
same compared witn our present
sewer system and where corrections
are necessary they should be made.
We are in favor of abandoning the
present subway under the railroad
tracks at lower Main street and plac
ing a subway twice as wide at the
foot of Granite street under the rail
way tracks. The object of this
change would be to level up the
street near the depot, removing what
is now a very uncomfortable and
dangerous hump in the street adja
cent to the sidewalk when approach
ing the depot. The small subway
now under the tracks is also danger
ous and of not less importance is the
fact that it discourages traffic on our
Iowa business, which on the other
hand should be encouraged far more
j than formerly. These changes men
; tioned would remove a very unsight
ly hole which if leveled off with Main
street and a little parking done at
the street ends on both sides would
give incoming and outgoing passen
gers a good impression as well as be
a source of pride to ourselves.
We believe this suggestion is reas
onable and a decided advantage-in
many ways to the growth of the
5. We ere in favor of opening

. ascending from Pearl street or a

; tour of the 6treet permitting ve-
hides to reach Main street from
Fifth. The opening of this (Pearl)
street for the distance mentioned!
'would not only be a sanitary meas-.
ure, also relieving Mainstreet from I
congested traffic, a substantial water
way relief and also open up two half)
blocks of good business property or
would make a good
facing Pearl street.

Lee Puncture-proof pneumatics are all the name implies.
In every essential of material and manufacture they are
equal to any tire you can buy. Thru this one feature
elimination of punctures they surpass all others. '
If other well-made tires were puncture-proof they might
be just as good. But because this is an exclusive feature,
Lee Puncture-proof tires are by far the best for any service
where the saving of time, labor and money is desirable.
On cars used for business or commercial purposes this
is especially true.
And it needs only one or two unfortunate experiences
with punctures to convince the average car owner that it is
wisdom to be on the safe side with Lee Puncture-proof tires.
We will be glad to demonstrate.

tions of Sixth and Pearl, Sixth and
Main and Sixth and Vine. These
sheer drop holes would be located in
the center of the intersection, now
and occasionally occupied with un
sightly barrels or concrete monu
ments. These drop holes would be
protected with circular iron grill
work terminating with a series of
cluster lights lamp post height, thus
serving as a guardian on quick water
relief and also a fine light distribu
tion four ways from the intersection.
7. We favor the paving of Lin
coln avenue, one of the most import
ant and least considered avenues in
the city. We favor re-surveying and
paving this avenue to a substantial
point beyond the railway property.
This would not only encourage the
rail way company but would also open
up South Park for a nice residence
district especially convenient for
railway employes, and where at least
one hundred modern bungalows are
now needed. A jitney bus should
serve this district several times a
day on time schedule, which arrange
ment would be very convenient for
women and children on shopping and
school requirements and men folks
8. We are in favor of the expan
sion of our park system, recreation
and play grounds for the children,
as there is scarcely a spot in the city
where children can play in safety.
A fine park should be located on
Washington avenue, and thanks to
Chicago avenue, and thanks to those
whose activity made it possible to
locate a nice little park and recrea
tion ground on Washington avenue.
In connection with both,. locations it
has ben suggested that a concrete
dam be placed against the creeks
adjacent to both these proposed parks
which would not only. serve as a hold
back for initial water rushes, but
would also provide a little lake privi
leges and make a good skating pond
for the kids in the winter time of
which there are none at all acces
sible at this time.
9. We are in favor of a large
Armory hall dedicated to our Amer
ican Liegion boys and what they
fought for a clean moral place for
athletics, recreation, special train
ing, social features, auditorium and
a clean refuge for many or our Doys
and girls who now find it hard to
amuse themselves economically ex
cept walking the streets or frequent
ly patronizing places and amuse
ments of no educational value.
10. We are in favor of a substan
tial city market place where a farm'
er can not only tie a team but also
provide a place where both farmers
and our city folks can meet long
enough to get acquainted and do a
little direct trading among them
selves. The hole property as men
tioned heretofore and facing on
Pearl street between Fourth and
Sixth would make a convenient mar
ket place. As the property now
stands it is in a pretty dilapidated
condition and no use for the town.
11. As a whole we want to boost
for every reasonable improvement
that will put Plattsmouth right. We
are interested only in the upbuilding
of the town and community. we
believe that now while the whole
country is entering into a new. per
iod of activity and a greater west is
only a short distance ahead of us,
there is no reason why Plattsmouth
cannot go over the top with the rest
We also wish it understood that
the above observations are not in-.
market place tioduced with the view of challeng-
iing the sensiDiuues 01 anyone, nor
water v-ith the view of capitalizing our-
the rest of our neighbors. The noise
that we make is simply a plain com
mon sense appeal to the conscience
of our busy folks who frequently get
careless regarding the general wel
fare, or the foot prints they leave
Boost, Plattsmouth, boost!
