army of the gray at Five Forks, Grant
pressed the advantage and within two

Major Schuls followed Judge Morris,
detailing statistics ot tho Missouri liver
and Its possibilities ss a waterway. Ho
referred to appropriations by congress for
river improvement work In tha stste f
Missouri and felt that If the people north
of Ksnsas City would do their share the
government would deepen tho channel

portation faculties. He estimated that for
ttt.BW.M a sufficiently deep ehaaael
could be had between Sioux City and
Kansas City, which estimate he had el
ready forwarded to congress.
"The government is expending 330.000,001
for a deep waterway between Kansas
City and St. Louis, tha people in Mis
souri showing that they need tbe river.
They have impressed It on congress that
water transportation Is a necessity to
Kansas City, and that's what Omaha will
have to do to successfully bring about a
deeper channel north ot here," ho con
The major suggested a driveway along
the river front on both sides between the
two bridges. He also said that Omaha
must show tha liver la of Importance la
a commercial way and prove that It will
make use of It.
Major Schuls said that tbe channel be
tween Kansas City and St. Louis would
reduce freight rates between Omaha and
New York, pointing out that freight rates
on this aide of the Mississippi river are
S cents and 73 cents additional between

If You Were an Expert,
What Car Would You Buy?
The time has passed when automobiles can be sold to you on
their appearances or claims. This is a day when you and every
purchaser must be shown what the car for which you pay your
money will actually perform; what it will do. Beware of an
automobile salesman who attempts to beguile you with a
pleasing story. Tell him to show the goods and prove to you
that his cars are worth the money. Find out whether his car
is a real car or only an assembled automobile built to sell.
You have a right to your money's worth, but it is up to you
to see that you get it Deeper than all appearances, there
are a few expert tests which ought to be applied to every car.
Who makes the car? Is it an assembled car or made from top
to bottom by one manufacturer? What kind of a guarantee
is on it? Does the manufacturer respect his own product
with a real guarantee, or does he want you to take the chance ?
What do parts cost you and how conveniently can you get
them? How many cars of this make are in service and how
many are giving satisfaction? Questions like these go deep into
, the heart of the case, and if you put them rigorously upon
any car you will find out with a certainty whether or not that
car is worth its price.
We are selling Studebaker E-M-F "30" and Flanders "20"
cars because we know that, dollar for dollar, their equal is not ,
sold in the market today. The records of many thousands of
cars in all kinds of service have convinced us absolutely.
Studebaker E-M-F "30" and Flanders "20" cars are built to j
run, and because they run they sell If we cannot prove to
you under the most searching test that Studebaker cars are
absolutely the best automobile values in the market, we do
not want your business; but we con prove it, and your
ncieiuuw wno unve mese cars ma tea you tne same thing.
Be an expert when it comes to buying a car. You can, by
getting from us some further ideas on real tests of an
automoenje. clip the attached coupon and send it tn
us now because we have something new to tell you you ought to know, whatever car vnn

If you own an auto

Tiro PRICES do not determine tire VALUES.
But actual tire VALUE ia tbe ONLY thing
that can determine actual tire COST.
First costs may be alluring (and they will influ

PERIENCED motorists know that LAST
costs are the REAL costs, and that it ia far

The motorist who does not buy his tires on the
SERVICE-COST basis is buying on the
WRONG basis-and hia tire bills are the
best proof of it
United States Tires lay no claim to being the
cheapest tires to buy. They are not.
Several other makes may claim this distinction,
Think that over and get its full meaning to the
motorist who is interested only in last costs.
Think what it means in ACTUAL MILAGE
ECONOMY to have four corps of expert tire
builders each of which formerly mads
tire easily the equal of any other SINGLE
FACTORY tire putting into the United
States Tires all the skill and all the exper
ience and all the secret processes known to
the four organisations.
Nothing liko it has ever before been attempted
in tire making.
Fossibly it will help you to get a more definite
idea of the immense importance to yoa of
this four-factory method if you ask yourself
this question
United States Tires are Predominant
by virtue of four-fold strength
but the manufacturers of United States
Tires believe that a rapidly increasing num
ber of tire buyers will elect to pay a trifle
more for tires made as only these tires are
made rather than pay a trifle less for tires
made by the single-factory, single-valuo
would be easily possible to build Unites!
States Tires by the customary method the
method formerly employed (a year and a
half ago), in building the individual brands
of United States Tires.
These individual brands made as well as it
was possible to make them with but one fac
tory's experience and facilities to draw
upon easily competed in service-quality
with any other tires in the world made in
the same way.
,fgThat was under the single-factory method
of building the method still employed by
the manufacturers of every other tire mad
except United States Tires.
Today United States Tires stand absolutely
alone in the matter of combined skill in -manufacturing.
They combine in one tire the strongest features
of four world-famous barnds and are as near
' tire-perfect in strength, size and general de
sign as four immense factory organizations,
working as a unit, can make them.
If four of the largest and best-known tire com-
panies now manuiaeturing singie-Jianded
should undertake to build a single brand of
tire that would be the composite of all the
best features and the most advanced meth
ods known to these four companies, would
the product be of a better grade than would
be possible to any one of the companies
working alone?
Most emphatically, YESI
And would the motorist be warranted in paying
a slightly higher price for such combined
skill tires than for the single-factory kind?
Most emphatically, YES ! '
To ask such questions' ia to answer them in the
same breath.
So long as four heads are better than one, four
organizations of tire specialists, working
together, can give the motorist a longer
lived, less-troublesome, more economical tire
than any single organization can possibly
give him.
And It Is this decreased mileage coat the distinct sat
ins: In the season'! tire expense which It la poo- '
Bible to build into Urea made as onlj United States
Tirea are made, that is the detrtainiiia- factor In
arriving at actual tire coat.
When the season's touring Is over aad the bills fop Urea
and tire repairing are all paid It will be an easy
matter for tbe users of United States Tires to nn
deratand why we are laying all onr emphasis apoa
Kg t"'n81, rather 'tracu.
In buying four-factory-tested United States Tires you are pro
tecting yourself against excesssive end-of-the-season tire
bills as only tires of four-fold strength can protect you.
