NetorasKa's New Magazine
Will make its initial bow early in December and start on its mission of making
Nebraska's material and mental resources known of all men. Itwill be a standard
sized monthly, illustrated, and in addition to containing articles relative to Nebraska's
resources and possibilities, will not overlook thq fact that Nebraska is taking high
rank in the world of literature. It expects to present from time to time the work
of Nebraska writers already famous, as well as of writers who will in due time
achieve fame. "Midwest" will not be a freak magazine'' either in style or con
tents: neither-will it be bound by-conventional rna
vor to be worthy of a place in every home and upon the desk of every business or
professional man. It will endeavor to enlighten the world as to Nebraska's
boundless resources, and at the same time be of assistance in making the com
monwealth better known to her own people.
A Magazine of Progress
'Midwest trill advocate tilings as they ought to be', not things as they are"'. It will stand
for the protection, of the home circle, the widening of business opportunities, the betterment of social
and industrial conditions. It will eschew partisan politics, and stand only for the best men and pro
gressive measures. Its first thought is to advauce the. best interests of the state and of the men and
women who are striving to accomplish things that are really worth while. It seeks the co-operation
of such men and women, and its endeavor will be to thoroughly deserve it.
"Midwest" will be edited and published by Will XL Maupin, whose thirty years' residence in
and study of Nebraska, qualifies him to write intelligently of the state's resources and possibilities, and
whose experience as a newspaper man fits him to exercise judgment in the selection of features for the
magazine. To the making of 'Midwest" he will give his best efforts, untiringly and unsparingly. He
solicits the assistance of the men and women who have helped to make the Nebraska of today, and
who are working to make the Nebraska of tomorrow. He wants photographs of Nebraska farmsteads,
Nebraska homes, Nebraska factories, Nebraska orchards and vineyards. In short he asks for anything
and everything calculated to make Nebraska better and more favorably known.
