"It is interesting to see Governor
McKelvie so frantic, the bankers'
plunderbund so anxious, and big bus
iness so interested as the time draws
tear when Mr. Bryan will be gover
nor and relief comes from the intol
errble tax burden of Governor Mc
Kclvie's administration. It will take
more than a bankers Belshazzar

the common tax payer that a banker
should be elected governor to per

prominent banking firm i!enid that j
any discussion had taken place so far
on the financial problems involved
in combining the three big roads. '
"The merger has been under .lis- :
cussion for many months." he said,
"but any assertion that the merger :
plans have been completed is with- '
out foundation. It is not so tlose at
hand as some persons think."
Plans for the merger when com
pleted will be presented to the in- j
tersiate commerce commission at ;
Washington, November 17. The com
mission has already announced ten
tative consolidation plans for the '
roads involved, but which do not
meet with their approval. ' " t
Under those plans, the Great
Northern would be joined with the
Chicago. Milwaukee & St. Paul rail
road and the Northern Pacific cou
pled with the Burlington. The pro
moters of the proposed thr"-corner-fd

to Uifce only an academic interest in
the parsi:.' of Lloyd George. In gei.
eral t!ie filing in Ireland is that
England's cabinet change will hp.ve
no palpable efrect on Irish relatione.
What Ireland is most interest d
in is the personality cf the man wi o
will succeed Winston F. Churchill
as secretary of the colonics. Sinv'e
the Anglo-Irish peace treaty was
sitrned. Churchill has been the con
r.eeting link between Britain and
Erin, and p!1 tlijieulties that arose
weer discussel with him.
In the south the republicans rep
resented hi'.i nr; a dictator to the
provisional government, but the free
.rate othei-.ls have had no serious
friction with him. In the north his
deaIir.-5 witli the Ulster government
were gratefully acknowledged by Sir
Jaiiics Crcig. the Belfast j)r-ir.ic-r.
It is rcgnrdod as important in Dub
lin that Churchill's successor shall
stand by hi acts and show the same
spirit iu carrying on the administra

(The preliminary plans for the new
University of Nebraska stadium have
finally been completed and are now
in the hands of the Nebraska stadi
um committee, according to a state
ment issued by that committee this
week. The plans call for a magnifi
cient structure which will cost $430,
000 and which will have a seating
capacity to begin with of 40,000
which may later be enlarged to 60,
000 if the need arises. The drawings
have been prepared by. the firm3 of
John Latenser & Sons of Omaha and
Davis & Wilson of Lincoln, who have
donated their services.
The proposed stadium will cover
four square blocks and will occupy
in addition to the present Nebraska
field a space immediately to the
north. The new" field will be bound
by Tenth, street on the west. Vine on
the north. Twelfth on the east and
T on the south. According to the
committee, it should be possible to
let the contract for the stadium on
January 1. If present plans mature,
the cornerstone will be laid on next
charter day and efforts made to have
the stadium completed in time for
the 1923 football season. The plans
call for a Roman aqueduct style of
architecture in the building of the
stadium. High, graceful arches will
lend an atmosphere of a Caesarian
But utility has not been sacrificed
to atmosphere an effect in the new
stadium. An indoor running track,
eighteen feet wide and three laps to
the mile is to be sheltered by the
building when completed. In addi
tion, there are plans for indoor ten
nis courts, numerous indoor hand
ball courts, shower baths, dressing
rooms and rooms for both visiting
and home teams.
The entire structure will be light
ed with electricity and it will be pos
sible to obtain brilliant electrical ef
fects during pageants and other night
festivities that may be staged there.
There will be an outdoor running
track surrounding the football grid
iron. During the baseball season the
field will contain an ideal baseball
diamond. It is proposed to make this
equipment the means for developing
intramural contests cf all sorts. The
back of the stands, each of which
will hold 20, COO spectators, will be
six stories or seventy feet in height.
The height of the lower circular
walls on the north and south wiH
be two stories or about thirty feet.
According to the committee, twenty-six
universities and colbges art
row building or have completed war
memorials. Nebraska I one of the
last to undertake a similar proje t.
The campaign to raise the balan-e
of the $420,000 for the stadinm
will begin October 16. Homecoming
week, when every studtnt on -the
campus will be asked to pledce his
share toward making possible the
splendid structure which will till
so great a need in Nebraska.
ERE are some ways to get the most
mileage and economy from your car:
Have your carburetor adjusted to that you will get a lean
mixture. You don't need a rich mixture of Red Crown
even in cold weather.
Do not idle the motor for long period to keep it warm. Red
Crown Gasoline it quick-starting and you won't drain out
the battery by any reasonable number of stops and starts
Get into high gear as soon as possible after the car has been
started. Habitually running 50 or 100 feet in "first" and
"second" is needless waste of gasoline.
Coast down the Jhills except when using the motor as an
auxiliary braking power.
You will always get full measure and prompt
courteous service from a dealer displaying the
Red Crown Sign. He stands behind Red Crown
Gasoline and Polarine and we stand behind him.
They must be dependable!
Let the Red Crown Sign be your protection
