The judges had you in mind you, every man, woman and child in Omaha
rwhen they selected, from more than 1,300 suggestions, "GROW WITH
GROWING OMAHA" as a new slogan for Omaha.
The contest for a new slogan, conducted recently by a local newspaper, was
the result of a demand for a phrase that would directly affect each one of us.
"Buy It in Omaha", "Omaha, the Gate City of the West", "Made in Omaha"
and many others, are frequently used, but none quite fills the bill, none ap
plies individually to each of us.
The judges in this contest, eight successful business men, representing as many
different lines, said that "GROW WITH GROWING OMAHA" should be our
slogan. It is not a boost, they said; it will stand the test of truth, is pleasing,
is an invitation to outsiders, and it applies to all of us alike.
We all want to grow. If you are in business you want your business to grow;
if you have a profession, you want your clients to increase; if you are on a
salary, you want your firm to prosper; if you are a wage earner, you want
work to be plentiful. Your business, your profession, your salary, your job,
all will be better if your city is prosperous.
Help your city and yourself by boosting. Use this slogan every time you can.
- Try it on your neighbor, your wife, on your enemies and your friends.. Boost.
