Supporters of the foot ball team ot the

for the interscholastlc championship ot

Thanksgiving day. After several weeks
ot indefinite delay a band of Omaha
alumni Tfas finally mado preparations
which will bring Oak Park High school ot
Chicago hero next Thanksgiving day.
Oak Park High school of Chicago has
for several years boen king of the Inter
scholastics foot ball World. That school
has turned out teams which swept all be
fore, east and west. But never has Oak
Park played Omaha, and thero tho alumni
got to work.
H will cost something over (00 to pay
expenses for Oak Park to come to Omaha
next fall. If tho weather la favorable
that $500 would bo but a small percentage
of the gato receipts, but If the weather is
not favorable $500 would be much larger
than the gate receipts. Thus a method to
obtain that 9500 was. Inaugurated.
Petition Circulated,
Petitions aro being circulated around
Omaha for business men, graduates ot
the high school or any Omaha Inhabitant
to sign. With that slgnaturo Is tho num
ber ot ttckots Which the signer will pur
chase previous to tho contest, so that
weather will not enter Into the obligation.
After an amount surpassing 1500 has been
petitioned tho alumni will collect the
money as fast as possible, put It In the
bank nnd then pay Oak Park's expenses
regardless of anything else.
Lester Heyn has promised to contribute
heavily toward tho expense money and
promises that he will see to It personally
that tho Oak Park team Is entertained in
a manner that will surpass any other en
tertainment any foot ball team ever re
ceived any time. Tate Matters la tickled
over tho plan and assorts that he will
assist Mills In coaching tho local line
men so that they will bo better prepared
to withstand the attacks of the powerful
Chicago backtleld.

was hooted out of New York on his

excessive awkwardness, and Johnson vas
long termed a Joke, fighter with a yellow
streak as broad as nts back.
It was also recalled that as a rule tho
old set of rlngmen were an Intemperate

the bar. Under such conditions it was a
physical impossibility for them to show
perfect form, oven though they con

cluding 2,500 women Hated under tho old
law that permitted them to vote for school
trustees. Whllo femalo politicians aro
holding rallies to obtain tho registration
of as many women as thero are men
voters. Wllllsm II. Stuart, chief clerk of
tho election commission, figures that tho
tbtal women voters will not exceed halt
the number ot males.

ing should not only havo
"nows" value, but it should
have a timeliness that ap
peals to human interest. It
should be as interesting and
instructive to readers as any
editorial or nows story in tho
paper. If it isn't, how are
you going to attract the at
tention of readers! If you
aro advertising in a newspa
per that enjoys tho 'confi
dence of its readers a pa
per that is a true tribute of
tho peoplo you must not
fail to take full advantage of
that relation by gradually
appropriating tho good will
and confidence of the paper
through "honest advertising
and honest merchandising.
The newspaper is the livo
wire of industrial and polit
ical activity. It is tho "motion-picture"
of civilization.
The advertiser should get on
the film that is reeled off
each day in the white light
of tho world's publicity. Ho
must have a message each
day that is vibrant with life
and so vivid in its appeal tt)
human interest that no read
er can skip it or overlook it.
