waa decided at the meeting of the elub
yesterday. Weloome arches are to, be
placed possibly tt either side of the city

words of welcome from the Omaha Auto
club are to adirn the arches.
President OoiiM Plots In Ms annual ad
dress revlcwnd some of the things accom
plished by the 'club during the year.
Beven hundred guide boards have been
placed on the various roods leading Into
Omaha by the club. Danger signs In
great numbers have been ported at the
sharp turns and cuts In the leading roads
coining Into Omaha. The olur took an
active part In the agitation which resulted
In the proseit traffic ordinance.
The club d elded to ask the state legis
lature this winter for a road law similar
to that In Iowa, whereby the automobiles
of the state will be taxed according to
norae power, the rervenue to be used In
the Improvement of the roads In different
sections of the state, according to the
amounta received In such revenue from
given sections of the state.
The clc.b will also seek a law In the
state that -will give automobile thieves
a pi-nlshmenr at least as severe as that
of horse thieves. They feel that the pres
ent law on this point Is not sufficiently
severe. The club was Instrumental 1n
sending two men to the penitentiary In
tne last year for auto theft.
. Buggcatlona of a city ordinance for auto
parking In the city were made, but no
definite action waa taken, although the
general membership of tha club la in favor
of some system that will get the autoa off
the streets. Thla will likely come up and
be developed later.

An agent works hard
for his commission; he

who is interested in the
