to the standard of quality required by

often a lack ot effort on the part ot
the manufacturer himself to secure the

E. V. Parrlsh, manager of the publicity
bureau ot Omaha, gave a synopsis ot
the "Nebraska Development and Publto
Welfare bill" that Is to be introduced in
the state legislature this winter to pro
vide for a commission of seven men who
are to manage the publicity of the state
Tho bill provides for the work to be don
through the publicity of the state. Th
bill provides for the work to bo dor.'
through tho University of Nebraska, and
provides for a commission consisting o
the governor of the state, the chancellor
of the University of Nebraska, a menr
ber of the Board ot Ilegents of the unl
verslty, the secretary of the State Board
of Agriculture, the state superintendent of
public Instruction, the director ot the leg
islative reference bureau and one other.
"In brief," said Mr. Parrlsh. "the plan
Is to tell the truth about Nebraska. Blue

Tell Their Troubles.
The secretaries enjoyed a "round table"
luncheon at the Omaha Commercial club
rooms at noon, when the troubles of com
mercial clubs and their secretaries were
I continuously and Informally discussed. A.
M. Conners of Grand Island wanted the
commercial secretaries to decide upon
some "code word" whereby the secre
taries could retfognlie a brother member
When they received correspondence asking
for a list ot the members ot the club and
other Infbrmatlon. He held that to
answer such .communication."!, without
some assurance that the man asking, It
wants It for legitimate purposes Is not
i best, because often someone wants the
names of the business men for some pur
pose which Is entirely for his own In
terest. Confers' schema did not Uko well
with the rest of tno secretaries and the
opposition to his plan was overwhelming.'
J. M. Guild and others held that If now
ind then names were seoured In this way
for purposes of advertising or other pur.
poses not approved by the club, such
leases were rare. James Henderson of
Central City believed that the secretary
should simply use "horse sense" In Judg.
MOST men appreciate quality in clothes a gar
ment to please them must fit and hang right
also past experience has learned thousands of them
that the quality of material and workmanship must be
in the garments, otherwise the pleasure in their owner
ship will be short lived.
The majority of the men 01 Omnha and vicinity know that the quality, style, fit and
service, in fact everything that goes to mnko real clothes value, is in Haydcn clothes.
That's the reason of the continued success of our big Januaiy clearance in spite of
the tremendous, uiidorpricings that have been advertised by other stores.
