FARMERS HAYE DAY i
AT AUTO EXHIBIT
Wednesday, February 23, Will be
Designated a Farmers' Day at
the Omaha Auto Show.
RACTORS TO BE DISPLAYED.
The miin who tills the soil will be
Klven his due at the Oinaha Automo
bile show this year.
For the management of the show as
sociation has made announcement that
J2iJeaday. February t will be desig
nated as Farmers' day.
. It has come to pass that the motor
car dealer finds In the farmer his best
(prospect. The man who works on the
land Is the man with the money In
this moflern sire and It is the 'man with
money who can afford a motor car.
That Is why the Omaha Auto Chow as
sociation has decided that a special
Farmers' day shall be held. Other shows
do not hold Farmers' day. If the farm
er wants to visit the ahow let him visit
It any old day, is the way other cities
else up the situation. But Omaha Is In
the very midst of a vast agricultural
community and Omaha knows how to
appreciate the farmer.
It has been said that fully 80 per cent
of the automobile sales made In this
country are made to farmers. The farmer
buys touring cars for pleasure and tour
ing; cars for business. He also buys
autoboblle trucks for his business. Who,
fhen. has more right to have a special
iay set aside for him than the farmer?
As an added attraction for the farmers
Iftn exhibition of farm, tractors will be
included in the show.

OODYEAR TIRES BUILT
WITH ALL PARTS EQUAL
"All parts of an automobile tire, like
.those of the famous Vme-hoss shay,'
should be built to give equal service,"
declares R. S. Wilson, manager service
department of the Goodyear Tire and
Rubber company, Akron, O. "Uniformity

and eldewall Is essential if the tire Is to

Signs Up for a

Christy who has done so much to make
the New Tork Giants famous has signed
up with the Paige for an indefinite term,
thus adding one more to the long list of
celebrities swearing allegiance to that
car. When Matty put his name on the
dotted line the other day In the office
of the Paige Detroit company of New
Tork, Manhattan distributers of the
Paige, and became tne owner of a Fair
field, one celebrated "Big Six" united
with another "Big Six" of equal fame.
Mathewson played rather a mean trick
on the Paige salesman. He concealed his
identity when he was examining the car
and receiving a demonstration, giving the
name of the friend who waa with him.
But all who know the great box artist
say that such a procedure would be quite

narrowed to three cars, one of which was
the Paige Fairfield "6-43." Matty did his
shopping very thoroughly, making a close
study of all that Auto row had to offer.
Two days after he had received his Paige
demonstration, he returned to announce
his decision. When the news Is spread
undoubtedly he will receive challenges
from Donny Bush, George Moriarty,
Branch Rickey and other base ball stars
who are driving Paige cars. Mathewson.
when asked why he had finally settled
on the Paige Fairfield, said:
"After investigating,, I found the car
waa light on Urea, that the mileage per
gallon of gasoline waa big. and that the
mechanism was very accessible
"I found It, also, the easiest riding car
I have ever been In. On feature of the

fact that there is plenty of room tn the

DODGE BROTHERS CARS

of Dodge Bros., Detroit

"TVFAN is not born to solve the prob

out what he has to do and to restrain

The achievement of this aim is facili
tated by the great volume of business
necessary to make a low price possible.

Lets You Forget Your Gear Shift

But not all sixes ere superior to aU toon.
We build both sixes and fours.
We build fours that have greater flexibility
than many sixes.
Our only purpose, therefore, In building a
six is to satisfy with Overland finality those dis
criminating buyers who demand well nigh
miraculous performance in an automobile.
So the Overland Six is equipped with a
motor so flexible that it almost lets you forget
that you have a gear shift.
Except for the start from an absolute stand
still, you will drive the Overland Six under even
the severest traffic and hill conditions with
seldom a need to shift a gear.
And not only Is the Overland Six motor a
