AUTO MEN EXPECT BIG YEAR

Show la Febrnary.
While some Industries cannot boast of
a year of bountiful success, and even in
some sections of the country the automo
bile dealer did not pluck many of tha
fruits of prosperity, the men who hava
their establishments on auto row in
Omaha report that the year of 1914 showed
larger gains in volume of sales and
money netted over preceding years.
As a whole tho automobile Industry
showed large gains for 1914, and it was
largely due to the prosperity of tha men
In such cities aa Omaha that tha gain
was registered. The number of oara sold
during 1014 In approximately 515,000, and
the total value of those cars 1 approxi
mately JtM.OOO.onO. Those figures show
America to 1e the leader In the motor
Fat are U Very Bright.
Hut even though Omaha dealers can
look back toward a most prosperous year,
It is toward the new year, 1915, that they
look. For the 1915 season promises te be
a banner season, wsr or no war. Tha
values promised by various manufactur
ers of motor cars are astonishing. Keen
competition, more skillful deslgnlnr, mora
efficient engineering and more scientific
manufacturing have made It possible for
much superior products to be turned out
for less cost.
Prominent local dealers declare that tha
models which will be exhibited at the 1315
automobile show, scheduled for February,
! will startle Omahans. The pricaa of cars
will be down to a lower point, while tha
cars will be of better construction. Also
, attractions In the line of accessories and
body equipment that were unheard of a
short while ago will be found on every
laerraard Salee Follew.
Increased sales are bound to follow
such extensive Improvements, believe
Omrlia deslers, nd as a result they are
looking forward with eager anticipation
to the announcement of the new models
which will be vhown at the 1915 shows.
The Increased Interest taken In good
roads movements has also accentuated
the success of the automobile business,
snd dealers tlleve that further Improve
ments will go a long way toward bigger
business In 1915. During 1914 '"Tie Ss.OOO
miles of hlghwsu were constructed, and
plans for 1M5 call for considerably more
construction this year.
No city can boast of a better territory
bark of It than has Omaha.
One of the new fcaturea which have
tended to Increase the automobile trade In
Omnliu. U the new coupclct and sedan
drulgn which were lecently Introduced.
These cars make driving in winter abso
lutely comfortable and, where a year
ago a closed car of other than tho big
heavy limot'slne type was a curiosity, it
la now a common sight.
tbuw December (ialaa.
The month of December, generally a
bad month, was very lucrative to Omaha
dealers. Hevernl deslers report gains In
kales of over 4) per cent over the sales
of the corresponding month a year ago.
The couptlet and sedan have been largely
Instrumental In bringing about these
F.veral new firms have entered the
automobile game In Omaha tha last year
and a few have dropped out Many new
cars are represented and ono or two cars'
hava been dropped, dut to factory finaliial
difflcultlta But tlve average shows that
there are more automobile concerns In
Omaha, more cars repress "'ted and the
prospects are that 1915 win far surpass

for a happy and prosperous New Year :
