Nomineees in M, and
M; Contest Making a
Very Good Showing
The nominees In the M. & M. voting
contest, who live In the outside towns,
are making a remarkably good showing.
The free trip to Chicago Is the chief in
centive. Just who will comprise the jolly
party that leaves Omaha on this delight
ful trip Is hRrd to predict. So far no one
of tho young ladles competing has a
"walk-away." Whoever wins will have
the satisfaction of knowing that the time
has been well spent. This outing will
combine pleasure with educational sight
seeltur. tThodrtiwill bo enectully that-
eroncd,f and "rid effort will be spared to
make tills trip one of tho events ,of a lit?
The central committee of the Ancient
Order of United Workmen has been put
tins In somo hard work recently. The
result of these efforts Is to be seen In
the large number of votes cast last week.
McKlnley lodge, B'nat B'lith, at Its
meeting last night pledged Its members
to work for the J730 cash premium. The
Ladles' auxllllary could use it very nicely.
This is a new society In tho contest with,
which the other organizations will havo
The general interest amoiig organiza
tions is increasing. Tho fair, clear-cut
sales plan on which Tho Bee's M. & M.
voting contest Is modeled, appeals to
those who have Investigated. The fact
that not a cent is required to enter the
contest not a cent of extra charge on
the goods that 'carry a voting value
place this big sales plan In a class by
itself. Fairness to all and an equal op
portunity to each nominee, Is tho slogan
that has made the M. & M. voting con
test popular with tho buying public of
Omaha and tho surrounding territory.
A number of important changes 'will
be made this week In the voting value ot
th4 various products. The new values
will be effective Monday.

at the disposal of nominees from 8:30 a.

Besides the children from Bancroft,
