Before a solid moss of 4.01 cheering, yelling- rooters, who crowded Into the grandstand and swarmed out onto the field, Omaha High school, fighting for Mood every minute of tho time, decisively crushed every hope of western Nebraska high schools by defeating North Platte High school, which Is acknowledged as representative of the average strength of western high schools this year.

After the first quarter It was clearly Omaha's game. Fighting . every single minute. Platz ripped through the North Platte line, a line which had been her alded as Impenetrable, Just as, a roaring torrent brushes aside the puny 'bulwarks of a spanning bridge.

Putting Backbone Into Business Advertising In newspapers is the great Business Doctor. It turns old business into new. It causes merchants to "perk up" and take notice, dust off their counters, "sweeten up" their merchandise, and im prove their service. It trans-forms-dull and uninteresting stores into bright and pleasant shopping places. Newspaper advertising de velops business muscle, and strengthens the sinews, and puts vibrant health Into organ izations that haven't been be having properly. It stiffens up weak and limp backbones and puts new life and Inspiration in the place ot cnnul and out-of-date-ness. The readers of The Bpe know all about good Doctor Advertising and his inspiring cures. They patronize hla pa tients. They shop where strength and health and vigor are. Businesses that are weak and spineless don't appeal to the imagination of the pocket book. Go to the lire places that newspaper advertising has placed in front of the firing line.
