following conferences with various
democratic leaders. Cabinet members

Emphasis was laid today on the
fact that President Wilson made no
effort to dictate the exact phraseol
ogy of the platform to be considered
by the platform committee headed by

Baldrige Motors With Wanamaker
by Mistake; They Meet Later on Stage
Howard H. Baldrige, one of the Ne
braska delegates to thi republican
convention at Chicago, was thrown
into the company of John Wanamaker
in the most unusual manner.
One of the announcements from
the convention platform was that
1,000 automobiles were at the serv
ice of delegates to take 'them to the
hotels. Outside the convention hall
delegates were jumping into machines
furnished by the reception commit
tee of the city of Chicago. One drove
in front of Mr. Baldrige and the
chauffeur opined the door. Mr. Bal
drige jumped into the car, which he
supposed was cne of the thousand.
Tresently an elderly gentleman got
in, the door was closed and the car
Discovers His Mistake.
It was not long before the Oma
han overheard conversation as to the
direction of the car, which explained
that he had entered the private car of
John Wanamaker by mistakt. Before
he had time to make an explanation
Mr. Wanamaker said his chauffeur
would drive MY. Baldrige anywhere
he vished to go, the Philadelphia
merchant prince learning that his self
invited guest-was a delegate and from
Mr. Baldrige thanked Mr. Wana
maker and excused himself for mak
ing the mistake. Mr. Wanamaker
was pleased to entertain a man from
The sequel to the story is that just
twenty-nine years ago Mr. Baldrige
was a reporter on the Philadelphia
Times. The city editor assigned him
to interview Mr. Wanamaker on the
subject of his trade with the Antilles
and South America. Reporter Bal
drige entered the Wanamaker stores
and asked for the boss. He was di
rected upstairs, where he went, find
ing a man with coat off and assiduous
ly arranging some boxes.
Baldrige the Reporter.
"Where may I find Mr. Wanamak
er?" asked Mr. Baldrige, addressing
the man with the boxes.
"Upstairs in his office," replied the
coatless worker. -
"I went up to Mr. Wanamaker's
private office and was met by a liv
eried colored man, who took my card.
After waiting a short while I was
received by the man I had spoken to
on the lower floor, the man who had
been moving boxes. v

In the convention hall, aftei the
automobile incident, Mr. Wanamaker
was called to the platform to nomi

Baldrige was called to nominate Bur

When the Omaha man icturned to
h' seat Mr. Wanamaker came over
to him, made a joking reference to the
automobile ride and said: "It is a
good thing for the east and the west
to get together once in a while."

BREAD LAWS ARE A MISTAKE
HAL M'KINNEY'S WIN TO;
BE CELEBRATED BY A DINNER
A group of friends surrounded Tom
Dennison, and were speaking highly
of Hal McKinney, Dennison's sensa
tional racing stallion.
"Tom, you certainly have got your
self considerable horse," one fellow
Dennison tried to be indifferent,
even though he did like to hear the
nice things being said about his horse.
"Oh, that's nothing. I've had good
race horses before."
"Yes," cut in another friend.
"You've had horses before, but you've
had a hot old time proving it I"
Dennison will be host at a chicken
dinner Friday evening in celebration

I It is a mistake to regulate by law
or ordinance the weight of a loaf of
bread the baker must sell for S cents,"
says Henry Zimmerman of Hannibal,
Mo., treasurer of the Trans-Mississippi
Master Bakers' association,
which association is to open its con
vention formally ats the Auditorium
this morning at 10 o'clock.
"It is a mistake to regulate that, be
cause the cost of material that enters
into the makin; of bread fluctuates
"No, we have no regulation as to
size and weight of loaves in St. Louis
or in the state of Missouri. If a baker
wants to put thirteen ounces or more
or less into his loaf, that is his own
business. We sell mostly loaves of
thirteen to thirteen and one-half ounc
es down there.
Not Merely the Flour.
"Flour? No, it is not the cost of
flour that has made necessary the
smaller loaf of bread. At least it is
by no means the cost of flour alone.
It is the higher cost of everything
that goes into the making of bread.
It is the shortening and everything
else, even down to the little salt -that
goes into it, that has greatly increased
"What is the natural thing to do?
Make the U-af smaller, that is the
only thing, of course, and that is
what has been done.
"The day of the large loaf of bread
is past. I see no hope of its return
ing. "You cannot raise the price of
bread. People are in the habit of
paying 5 cents a loaf for their bread.
If one baker should charge 6 cents
and keep the loaves at the old sire,
what would happen? His customers
would walk out and say they would
trade elesewhere. They would go to
the other fellow who for a time might
sell a little cheaper."
- Mr. Zimmerman is one of sixty
delegates from Missouri who came in
on a special car early Monday morn
ing for the convention. Most of the
Missouri delegates are from St.
Something over 100 delegates ar
rived early this morning and gathered
at the Auditorium, although the con
vention does not open formally until

Schweickhardt of Burlington la., and

the executive committee.

plies and accessories is being set up
in the Auditorium. All the booth

Difference of Opinion,
Many of the bakers are enthusiastic
over the new association of bakers of
four states Iowa, Kansas, Missouri
and Nebraska. Others feel that per
haps after all it is better to have only
the state associations. It is said that
the matter of whether the bakers shall
keep up this Trans-Mississippi asso
ciation or shall again throw their en
ergies entirely into their respective
state organizations is to be discussed
at the sessions in Omaha. The early
attendance, however, and the ready
sale for booth space for the exhibit
already gives signs of a great success
for this convention and it is thought
there will be no trouble in keeping
up the interstate organization.

Built by Request the Chalmers Special for 191763 h. p.
Seven of us seven large distributers of Chalmers cars
have prevailed on the Chalmers company to build & Chalmers
Special for 1917.
There will be only a very, limited number of them built
because of the condition of the materials market, the fact that the
Chalmers works are at this writing many times overworked and
three times oversold on the 3400 r.'p. m. Chalmers.
It was difficult, indeed, to get even 500 of these Specials and
then when we found that there were to be only 500 of them, the
seven of us began a friendly contest to obtain the most of them.
I feel that I hardly acquired what this territory was enti
tled to, but I have no great complaint to make when I think that
the Specials were divided among only seven territories.
There are over 900 Chalmers dealers who won't even get one
of them. ,
Here's the story back of the whole thing." We all had such
good luck with the 1916 Chalmers 6-40 that we wanted the Chal
mers people to continue this model again for 1917.
Back at the works they didn't want to do it, because they
needed the room, the men, materials for this wonderful 3400 r.
p. m. Chalmers. -
But why, said we, let go of a, car that made such a tremen
dous dent in the public mind on its superior performance?
Well, we won our case up to a certain point only they
didn't agree to make more than 500.

We find that many business men do not have capital uninvested right at the' time when they would like to secure an automobile. We want to
tell .you that we have arranged a sales plan that enables us to accept your business without extra charges, bonuses or ot jer penalties on the basis
of a very reasonable first payment. . ...
' We do not consider that we are doing our patrons any special favor in offering them this plan of making their motor car purchases we rather,
believe that we are being favored 'when they offer us their business on this basis.
Everyone wants an automobile this is your opportunity. We make immediate deliveries.
They have taken the 640 Chalmers as a basis and with no
chassis changes to amount to anything since the model was first
introduced, they have raised the horsepower up to 63 at 2500 r.
No changes in the bore or stroke just a natural develop
ment of an engine that was there in the beginning.
, The notable changes are those which the eye will see at 'a
glance: the body equipment has decidedly new tendencies; more
sensible; possibly a little more decisive as to colors, and with a
number of little lures that will make the average man and 92
per cent of the women insist on possessing. '
Certainly, if the head of the house won't buy one of the 1917 Specials
then there H be trouble for sbmeone, because the ladies of the. house will
make life hard for some of my contemporaries if they can't duplicate some
of those little things that go to make the charm in this car.
That is just what I mean when I say "charm," and almost as hard
fof me to describe on paper as it would be to point out or analyze the charm
in a woman. .
