City Improvement Plan

Omahans who have long turned
their noses up at the city’s dusty,
creaking auditorium will have a
chance to do something about it
at the November 5 election.
E. F. (Gene) Agee, general
chairman of the City-Wide Im
provement Plan today pointed out
that a bond issue of $3,540,000 for
a big and modern auditorium is
i a leading issue among the 14 im

The City - Wide Improvement

Agee. ‘ It should be air condition

possible to secure additional re
Mr. Agee said that the com
mittee believes that a properly
operated auditorium not only
would pay all of its operating ex
penses but it also would produce
a sufficient surplus to take care
of improvements and upkeep.
The proposed civic center, rough
ly governing the area between the
post office building and the Jos
lyn Memorial, has been deemed
the logical site for a new auditor
Voters must also decide by spe
cial ballot if they wish to have the
proposed auditorium governed by
a non-partisan commission to su
pervise the carrying out of the
A second improvement project
to be put to vote is the proposed
construction of an $185,000 naval
The proposal developed follow
ing an announcement of the navy
plan to train in this area a re
serve force adequate to man one
It is expected that the naval re
serve will produce for Omaha an
I annual payroll of from $250,000 to
j $300,000, representing the pay for
J permanent naval officers in charge
! and the salaries of an estimated
1000 local participants.
Mr. Agee declared that the type
of structure required to serve the
navy will be so designed and con
j structed as to include a drill hall
and gymnasium, shops, school
rooms, movie projection room, of
j fices, and lockers and gunnery
j facilities.
A site at Carter Lake Park I
has been recommended for the
building although an exact loca

Urging Omahans to keep in
mind the city-wide- improvement
plan’s slogan "Omaha Vision is
Your Decision”, Mr. Agee recom
mended that voters go to the polls

upon include ci%'ic center; public

In a statement released this
week officials of the Metropoli
tan Utilities District MaphaMavd
that Omaha citizens wlU NOT? be
Ieciding whether the Ss to
lave manufactured or Natural Obis
in the future. They point out Ihpt
regardless of the election ou|pome.
Omaha will be forced to ctmpgc
from 50 percent to 75 pwer.t
Natural Gas next summer, la or
der to meet the urgent demands
for more gas. The choir* la be
tween 75 percent Natural Gas or
straight Natural Gas.
The Utilities District bad to
curtail all new Installation of gas
heating this summer because the
present gas plant capacity had
been reached.
"Omaha is now using a 80 per
cent mixture of Natural Gas, and
this mixture must be inOBHMd to
75 percent if voters do not ap
prove full Natural Gas November
5th”, the statement says.
“Gas engineering authorities j
have advised the city that a 75
percent mixture would be only a
temporary measure and that with
in a few years Omaha would have
no choice but to go to full Natural
Gas service. Putting off the de
cision to go to full Natural Gas
would practically double the
changeover expense”.
The statement says that “Ap
proving full. 100 percent Natural
Gas now will assure abundant gas
at lowest cost, for all rurooses
in the future and will avoid fur
ther inconvenience, expense and
difficulty as Omaha’s gas demands
increase through the years’’.
District officials fear that the
small Natural Gas ballot mav be
’ost or ignored by voters among
the stack of ballots that will be
handed them at the polls Novem
ber. For this reason. We District
is publishing pictures of the bal
lot and its text in the various
newspapers oublished and circu
lated in Omaha, in an effort to
familiarize citizens with the ap
pearance of the Natural Gas pro
posal and its significance.
“we expect this movement to ex
pand t obecome the most power

ation ever brought together in the
history of this country”. He an
