JsTOP OFF AT OMAHA
TO BE ADVERTISED
Systematic Campaign in Centers of
Population Decided by Pub
LARGE EXPENSES TO BE MET
A systematic, campaign, urging visitors
to "Stop tiff at Omaha." has been planned
by the Bureau of Publicity and adopted
by the governing committee by unanimous
vote. Details ot the campaign have
been under consideration for the last two
months, but final decision was not made
until yesterday when the entire plans
The plan Involves the expenditure of
money, which must be raised to Insure
the successful outcome of the campaign.
The governing committee anticipates no
difficulty in raising the required amount
of money, believing that Omaha will
respond to the call to permit the city
to place Itself alongside other represen
The "Stop Off at Omaha" campaign
will be one of the most complete propo
gandums ever attempted by a city. The
campaign will be built around advertis
ing in daily newspapers In eastern cities,
where the crowds will gather for their
transcontinental trip. This advertising
will be reinforced by appeals from all
Omaha's organisations, which will get
Into direct communication with affili
ated organizations in different parts of
"Mop off at Omaha, visit the city, your
friends, Ak-Sar-Uen. and learn of the
great resources of the city and state,"
will be the appeal to every man who
goes through Omaha. The campaign will
even go farther as It will urge people
from the eastern states to route through
Omaha, and take advantages of the stop
over privtlogen given by the railroads to
study Omaha and Nebraska.
Other Oraynnl nation a to Aid.
Assurances have already been had from
Ak-Sar-Ben and the Retail Dealers' asso
elation of Omaha that these organisa
tions will leave nothing undone to make
the campaign successful. K. Bucking
ham, president of Ak-Sar-Ben, Is en
thusiastic over the possibilities of the
campaign and has assured tho governing
committee of the Bureau of Publicity
that Ak-Sar-Ben will be In the thick of
the campaign and In addition will enter
tain the visitors at the Den in a manner
which will make them glad they stopped
off at Omaha.
The Omaha Retail association hss
pledged Its co-operation and has ap
pointed W. L. Holssman of the Nebraska
Clothing company to represent the as
sociation in it co-operation.
Ilnalneaa Men to Co-operate.
Business men, who have not been sup
porting the Bureau of Publicity will be
requested to assist liberally In this cam
paign to swell the fund now made pos
sible by tho contributions ot Omaha con
cerns, who have backed the bureau fi
nancially for five years. The only thing
that would prevent the waging of the
"Stop Off at Omaha" campaign would
be the refusal of these to contribute. The
governing committee does not fear any
such action, feeling that any legitimate
plans for placing the city in Its true
light will be received with favor.
If the Bureau of Publicity's plans are
carried out every citizen of Omaha will
be asked to co-operate In this campaign
to get people to -stop, off at -Omaha.
Within a very short time every organi

way possible with the local automobile
