The building of goM road In the one
blBgt and most Important factor which
this cduntry must conalder In the, nxt
few year," eaj'a John E. Willys, prcal
dnt of tha Willyi-Overland company.
The Improved highway la the one minus
of salvation for the poor man, for In
these daj-B of high cot of living we
must look to the cheaper traniortatloii
of foodstuffs aa our way 6ut. U'c cAn no;
long-er expect to better our condition
through a greater supply of net.-eskit.4i,
for every effort we ha've rruide toward
lowering the cost of foodstuffs heietoforu
hag been .met with the rosponso that tllw
Vnlted States Is now about as Intensively
cultivated as It can be. In other word,
our people are no longer turning to the
country In an effort to produce a larger
amount of food. Therefore we must lace
the problem of getting along with this
tame Amount that Is now produced.
"The only sloutlon left for us Is to cut
our cost of production and delivery. The
best way to accomplish this .Is to provide
good roads, for we have already had
many demonstrations of how good ronds
will work to our advantage.
"The Improvement of highways In many
parts of our country In tho last tew
years has been Invariably followed by
better thing conditions. Where the rou ls
leading Into n. large city havo been Im
proved, we have aeen nn Increased supply
of foodstuffs on the local markets and
a larger number of farmers bringing thoir
products Into tho city. This, of a neccs
ajty, results In lower prices for tho
products and a long step toward better
"On the other hand, the Improvement
of roads throughout the country is In
variably followed by on Improvement In
farming methods. Tho agriculturist who
heretofore devoted his energies to gras
Ing and the production Of rough food
stuffs, such as corn, Id now turning (d
what is known aa market gardening. lie
U raising potatoes, beans, peas and other
commodities that are In everyday de

Improved, were denied the consumer. Tho
automobile, it is true, has had a grtut
deal to do with Increasing this supply, but
ven this vehicle would be helpless with
out highways on which to run.
For Intensive I"'siiiIhr.
"The&dyent of good rdada, too, lms
brought about another revblutlon that of
Intensive farming. The countries of Ui6
rid world havo always regarded us as a
criminally wasteful "people, In that tho
l'loduct raised on 100 acres of land In
this country was often less than they
produced on ten acres. Good ronds have
changed this condition. The American
farmer now finds that he will get a
greater return from one acre of lund in
tensively cultivated than ten acres larrried
in the old slipshod methods would here
tofore produce. This Intcnslvo farming Is
the direct result of good toads, for Where
the farmer heretofore found It necessary
to cultivate crops which made a large
bulk so that infrequent trips to market
were profitable, ho now finds that he can
take a small load to the consumer a
often aa he desires.
"Good roads aro an undisguised bless
ing and this everyone who has ghen the
matter any thought will admit. They not
only promote Increased Industrial activ
ity, and therefore better the living condi
tions of thousands of our city dwellers,
but they provide an Improved social I fe
for people who live In tho country. The
family which hus access to a good road,
and, therefore, quicker and more pltav
ant trips, goes to church ofter.er, visit
the neighbors oftencr and attends farmer
club meetings more frequently. yj0 0I10
can deny that all of these are Important
factors In the farmer' life."

31 New Features
v Deliveries', in June
We are sold out on HUDSON Six-40's.
When the last of this model went out frdm the
factory there were 3,000 orders unfilled. The
most optimistic, of this car's admirers never
dreamed of so great a demand.
The season just closing will never be forgotten.
Nearly all Motordom turned -to Sixes m the class
above $1200. They abandoned heavy cars for the
light ones. They refused to pay over-price. And
the HUDSON Six-4QF the .lightest, the handsomest,
the lowest-priced quality car had not a single rival
Now a Much Lower Price
The HUDSON Six-40 for 1915 will be a still greater
sensation. It is lighter than last year,- though
roomier and more comfortable. It embodies 31
important refinements. The 48 HUDSON engineers
spent three years on the first model. Now they have
spent another year just on final touches.
The factory capacity has been multiplied by three.
That has greatly cut cost of production, and the new
season price will show it. No quality Four of any size
or power has ever been sold at this new Six-40 price.
Early in June these new cars begin coming. We are
taking order now. to be filled in turn. We'll reserve one for
you if you think you want it. And to-day we can promise
rather early delivery.
Don't buy a new car for over $1200 until you see this
corning car. To-day there is not a single car on the market
which in value, beauty or up-to-date features compares with
this coming HUDSON. Come and let us prove this.

So well were the board of governors of
Ak-Snr-Ben, who went to St. louls
at tho Invitation ot the mayor to witness
the pageant and masque at that city,
impressed with the spectacle that It Is
bfCleved by many Omahans thai the
proposition of .encouraging such a festival
In Omaha In connection with the Ak-Sar-Ben
may be promulgated by some of the
members of the board. Evory one of
them expressed themselves as enthusi
astic over tho success of the venture In
Bt Louis, asserting that It was the mot
magnificent spectacle one could Imagine.
Secretary Weaver upon his return de
clared he regarded It ns wonderful.
"Words cannot describe the beauty and
splendor .of the pageant," enthusiastically
exclaimed Mr. Weaver. "Scenes of early
St.. Lpuls were depicted and battles be
tween the Spaniards and the Indiana wero
graphically represented. The battles
were fought on horseback on the Im
mense specially erected stage. Over 7.W)
persons participated In tho affair and It
was estimated that 100.000 were In tho
audience. If you can think of anything
more inspiring you have a better imagin
ation than I."
Among tho governors Frank Judson,
Louis C. Nash, Charles Black. Everltt
Buckingham, Joseph Barker nnd Randall
Brown and among the ex-governors Ed
P. Peck, Charles Courtney, Charles H.
Pickens, Charles noblnson and Waller
Jardine pronounced the St. Louts festival
as being a most wonderful affair. Gus
Renze, the artisan at the Den, declared It
to be' the greatest thing of Its kind and
asserted It wouldn't be a bad Idea for
Omaha, to try something similar.

Ak-Sar-Ben Is Omaha's biggest. But
with both a spectacle like tho St Louis
pageant and the Ak-Sar-Ben parades, car
nival and ball, the Omaha Ak-Sar-Ben
would soon enjoy moro popularity than
even the New Orleans Mardl Gros. While
no one has evinced any definite attltudo
nor haa anyone expressed himself as plan
ning to start a movement for a pageant
here, the popular sentiment among mem
bens of the Ak-Sar-Bcn seems to be that
