THE OMAHA SUNDAY BEE: JUNE 25, 1916.
GOOD ROADS CROWD
COMING 1,000 STRONG
'To SUrt Early Monday from Cen
tral City and Pick Up Booster
All Along; the Boute,
TO BE VICTIMS AT THE DE5
"On to Omaha, One Thousand
Strong." That ii the slogan the Cen
tral City crowd has adopted for its
' good roads boosting trip, on which
the men in autos are to roll into Oma
ha from Central City Monday,
, June 26. . '
, .- Whether they will have a full thou
I sand when they cross to the m?tro-
politan limits of Omaha cannot be
predicted as yet, but it never hurts
to set your slogan high enough.
These boosters are boosting for
the Highland Cutoff highway which
is a short cut from Central City to
- Valley and Omaha, somewhat short
er than the Lincoln highday, and on
higher ground. .Every town and city
en route is to contribute boosters and
still more boosters to the whirling
column of automobiles, so that the
caravan of cars will grow as it rolls
along, even as a snowball grows
while bounding down a snowy slope
in a chinook. , t .
A handsome silk flag valued at $10
' will be given as a prize to the town
contributing the largest delegation to
the trip. Governor Morehead is
; scheduled to make the trip from Lin
. 'coin to Central, City in time to fct
into a car with the bunch and make
the entire trip over the cutoff with
! the boosters. ,
The towns to be visited en route to
Omaha are Hordville, Polk, Stroms
burg, Ulysses, Dwight, Valparaiso,
Weston, Wahoo, Mead and Valley.
Representatives of the Omaha Auto
elub .plan to meet the boosters and
escort them whirling into Omaha,
after which they will be driven about
in the most scenic parts of Omaha
and later taken' to the Ak-Sar-Ben
den for initiation.

DEMAND FOR FARM HANDS IS
GREATEST IN STATE HISTORY
The railroads report that in the his
tory of Nebrsska there has never been
sucn a demand tor farm hands as
now, and that there has never been
a time when farm wages have been so
high. It is asserted that good, reli
able young men who are witling to
work are paid SMJ per month and
board, besides their laundry done free.
They are also given the use of a
horse on Sundays. ! '
JSven boys who are large enough
to go into the fields and plow corn
are being paid $1.50 per day, with
board and lodging.. The hours are
about the same as in the citv. the
farmers having abandoned the idea of
working their men from sunrise to
sunset, as was the custom some years
ago. - . f
FEDERAL WATCHMEN TO :
NO LONGER WEAR BADGE
The three watchmen employed at
the federal building will no longer
wear the badges of special city watch
men as they have done tor several
years. This is due to a new order of
the city police department requiring
all special watchmen to file a bond
for $1,000. The federal government
makes no provision for paying for
such a bond and. anyway, the city
police department gave the. watch
men no power or authority that they
did not have already as federal watch
men. -. - - .' :- 1 - ,

SOME OF FIRST CUTTING v
OF ALFALFA IS MOULDY
Consignments of new alfalfa have
been coming to the Omaha hay mar
ket! during the week, and Inspector
Pederson has been busy "plugging"
the cars to inspect and grade the hay.
It is found that much of the hay was
hot and mouldy, this week. It is
believed that proper care was not
taken in curing and loading this first
cutting of alfalfa.

THREE Million Auto Tires, made by
Goodrich, in latest fiscal year of 1915 1
With a huge increase, thus far,
for 1916. .
Three Million Tires for Pleasure Cars, and
Trucksi combined, exclusive of all Motor-Cycle,
Bicycle, and Carriage Tires. - .
A miUionmore of such Tires than were made, '
sold, or even claimed, by any other Jtubber Con
cern in America, during its latest fiscal year.
A Fifty Per Cent greater VOLUME than the
One-fourth of ALL the Pleasure Car, and
Truck, Tires made In America.
Deduct that Goodrich 8,000,000 from the
total American Tire production of about 12,000,
000 Tires in 1915. ,
' Then divide the 199 (approximate) Makes
and Brands, that compete with Goodrich, into
the 9,000,000 residue.
' You will thus find the average Volume of a)l
competing Makes and Brands to be about 45,000,
Tires Yearly, per Make or Brand.'
Double that if you wish ! . " ' ,
Treble it 1 QUADRUPLE it K '

How this Concerns YOU !

to left of this, and See 1
Compare with the List-Prices of
other Tires made in LESSER Volume, and See I
Observe that competing Prices are higher in
almost the exact proportion that VOLUME of
production is smaller.
This, when Quality approaches the Goodrich
Standard. ' i
Cut our present Tire Output to One-third,
and it would still far exceed the Average of all
Competing Makes or Brands.
But, that huge reduction in Volume MIGHT
result in every Tire we made costing you One
third MORE than present prices. ' i
They would hot and could not be BET
TER Tires, at this necessarily higher-cost to us,
and higher-price to you, -
Because, Goodrich,Tires are not made "up
to a price,-" nor "down to a price."
WE, first of all, mak the BEST
Fabric Tires that our 47-year Expe-
