1916 Motor Car Show
Omaha may not hold an eleventh an
nual automobile show. Stockholders , In

pone any plana to hold a show until some
definite facts regarding the announcement
of new models of cars was learned.
At present automobile manufacturers
are announcing new models at all and
any times. Under present conditions a
show would, merely be a useless expense.
The association decided to ask the co
operation of the various show associations
in asking that manufacturers announce)
but one line of new models a year, pre
ferably some time during the winter.
It was 'decided to hold no show during
Ak-Sar-Ben or the fall, as was suggested
by some. '
