have just read the article ic your issue of Feb. 2 on
"What Nebraska Needs, " and I want to congratu
late you on the same.
Yon have struck the etnoe to the situation.
The proper advertisement of the slate has been woe
fully neglected Instead of getting together and all
working for the advancement and prosperity of Ne
braska, we devote too much time to wrangling over
little petty local affairs, that injure the state, insteaa
of benefitting it
We ought to have a concerted movement along
the line of advertising the resources of the state.
This article of yours and several others that you
have written should be published in some of the
leading organs of the east

Nebraska State Board of Agriculture
Lincoln, Nebr., Feb. 3, 1912.
To the Editor of Will Maupin's Weekly: It is
such a chronic habit for Will Maupin's Weekly to
suggest boosting ideas for Nebraska and Nebraska
institutions that we have grown to expect Something
new with each issue.
The idea of a Semi-Centennial Exposition for
Nebraska is an especially good one. ?The State
Board of Agriculture have been seriously consider
ing the changing of the name "Nebraska State
Fair" to "Nebraska State Exposition, " but we
shall now reserve this event for 1917 and hereby
assure you and the citizens of Nebraska that this
Board will make an earnest endeavor to be ready to
entertain our citizenship on the State Grounds
should it be thought advisable to hold the exposition
there. Every effort will be made to properly house
such an exposition.
Pledging our best efforts, we remain,
Yours truly,
W. R. MELLOR,
Secretary.
