THE OMAHA SUNDAY BEE: JULY 16, 1916.
FAMOUS BEAUTY WHO
VISITED JERE DEAD
Mrs. John Murray Anderson,
Nee Lyon, Was Cousin of
Two Omaha Women.
MARRIED NEW . YORKER
Omaha friends of Mrs. George E.
Mickel and Miss Mary E. Van Wag
ener have learned of the death of
their cousin, Mrs. John Murray An
derson, who as Miss Genevieve Lyon,
in 1910, wu pronounced the most
beautiful girl in the United States.
Josef C. Korbel, sculptor, and mem
bers of the faculty of the Chicago Art
Institute made the decision, and Kor
bel chiseled the face of the young girl
for the marble keystone at the en
trance of the new Hotel Shreman.
Later Miss Lyon took up classic
dancing and married John Murray
Anderson of New,York, a playwright
and director of pageants. She died in
Denver last week after an illness of
Mrs. Anderson visited Mrs. Mickel
in Omaha prior to her marriage, and
a sister, Evelyn, who is now a student
at the Art institute, was Mrs. Mickel's
guest last year. Still another sister,
Miss Enid Lyon, is expected before
the end of the summer to visit her
Street Railway Company
Issues "Safety First" Order
If you want to board a street car,
don't go out into the middle of the
street when it is a block awtay and
wait for it. Stay on the curb until it
is within a length or two of you. Then
signal the motorman and he will stop
and you will have plenty of time to
board the car.
In the future all motormen will
have instructions from W. L. Mus
grove, superintendent of transporta
tion of the Omaha & Counict Bluffs
Street Railway Co, to pay special at
tention to signals from the curb so
that there will be no reason for
people to stand in- the street where
there is danger. When the matter was
called to his attention by Special Traf
fic Office Phalon of the Amaha Auto
mobile club he promised to issue an
order to the motormen directing
them to pay special attention to curb
signals. He expressed. his hearty ap
proval of the course of the club in
asking for this assistance and said
that it was a real "Safety First"
Even a Freight Car Looks
Pretty Good to J. E. Baum
J. E. Baum, who is in Danbury,
Conn., saw an Ak-Sar-Ben Dispatch
butter car on the tracks there a few
days ago' This is one of the special
Omaha refrigerator cars which carry
the name of Omaha and Ak-Sar-Ben
all over the country wherever they de
liver the Omaha product. "It looked
good to see it," wrote Mr. Baum.
SOCIETY LEADER TAKES MUCH INTEREST IN HUMANE WORK Mrs. De Forest
Richards shows her sympathy for little pony that couldn't reach the horse trough to get
, . i

J h v
Mrs. J. de Forest Richards is an
Omaha matron devoted to the cause
of helpless children and animals, "put
ting the children first," she insists.
It was on motion of Mrs. Richards
that the Nebraska Humane society
voted $100 for The Bee's free milk
and ice fund, while her activities in
the cause of poor, broken-down horses
and suffering dogs has received much
favorable comment in the last few
It is second nature for Mrs. Rich
ards to stop and note any horse that
comes within her ken and to assure
herself that he is well-shod and un
hampered by careless harnessing.
The Bee photographer snapped this
picture of the well known society ma
tron one warm day last week when
"the lady of the humane spirit" drew
off her white glove and sprinkled cool
ing water on the face of June, little
George Medlock's pony, which was
trying desperately to refresh itself
with a drink in the fountain at Seven
teenth and Capitol avenue. June
wasn't big enough, however, and had
to content herself with drinking from
the trough below, provided for thirsty
Vlogs. Mrs. Richards was touched by
the little pony s ettort to get a drink
from the regular horses' trough.
"Do you think you would care to
sell this pony some day," she asked
George Medlock, the youthful owner
of the cart and animal.
"No, ma'am I I wouldn't sell June
for a thousand dollars. . No, sir-ree."
Mrs. Richards, Miss Jessie Millard
and Mrs. George Prinz have been
nicknamed "the boosters' committee"
because of their strenuous efforts
along the lines of humane work.
Several good positions with the gov
ernment, paying from $1,200 to $4,000
a year, will be competed for in ex
aminations to be held August 8. Ex
aminations will be given here and at
other points throughout the United
States. They are these positions: As

Monday Night Dances Are
Popular at Krug Park
Monday night is the weekly society
event at Krug park, especially so at
the ball room. On the occasions
many can be seen indulging in the
terpsichorean pastime. Fashion's fair
est fancies of frocks, gowns and shoes
are displayed to a nicety, and one can
see a reproduction of Mrs. Whitney's
New York Fashion show. Preisman's
orchestra continues to please the
dancers with selections of late popular
Basket picnics are popular and
many families take advantage of the
facilities offered by the park for the
Going Out on Home
' If it is hot next Tuesday, there will
be a few score of Omaha business and
Commercial club men who will not
care, for they will be taking the cooler
cure in the vaults of the Omaha Cold
Storage company plant. A home
trade excursion is planned for the day.
When it gets a little cooler in the aft
ernoon the crowds wants to visit also
the Beebe & Runyan Furniture com

of some of the big plants of the city.
Indian Bucks and Squaws
To Show in Store Windows
Pacer and Ketcham these are the
semi-civilized names of the two Sioux
bucks who, with their squaws, will be
on exhibition in the show windows of
the Brandeis stores and the Burgess
Nash store next Tuesday afternoon.
Of course, inside the teepee, and
within the boundaries of the reserva
tion, they may go by the names of
Pink Thunder and Young-Man-Afraid-of-Toil,
but they are now in the region
of real civilization and have cast off
Each of these bucks will be accom
panied by his squaw and will spend
the afternoon in the show windows,
where the passersby may view them
at close range. They are with the
party of Sioux Indians with Charley
Irwin's' frontier and round-up celebra
tion at the Douglas county fair

Thla new flve-paancngr tourtns car, to sell mt tha low
pries of 9391V. la tha result of Mr. R. C. Hupy'a many yean'
During Mr. Hupp'a long experience In the automobile
world, and In the rourne of the evolution of the automobile
Induatry for the p&at fifteen years, during which period hie
fame has become Internationa), he says, after carefully
checking everything over, that this new creation la without
question the moat perfect In design, durability and line of
any low-priced automobile ever made.
It Is well known that Mr. K. C. Hupp'e approval and
opinion of thla new car In eminently worth while. He started
with the Oldn mobile In 102. At that time the car was sold
at 9650, when other automobiles were aelling from $2,000 up.
Mr. Hupp was graduated from the Ohlsmotor Work a to the
Ford Company. In 19M6. Through Mr. Hupp'a knowledge and
experience while making the lowest prlctd automobile In the
world, with the Oldrttnotor Works, he became one of the
factors with Henry rord in the production of the first 500
Ford runabouts. In lfliS Mr. Hupp and associates organised
the Hupp Motor Car Company, producing a car at 1760 which
at that time waa lower In price than the car which the Ford
Company was turning out, as the Ford Company had ad-,
vanced the price of their cars to $976. Under Mr. Hupp'a
management the Hupp Company sales jumped from 190 cara
the flrat year to 6,000 cars the second year, and an original
Investment of lens than $10,000 grew to a cool million dollars
by 1912, when Mr. Hupp disponed of his Interest and retired
from the company, owing to the fact that ha did not agree
with the policy of his aaaoclates In bringing out a higher
This same year Mr. Hupp organized the R, C. H. Cor
poration, manufacturing and selling a touring oar that was
lower In price than any other car made except the Ford,
and the very flrat year produced 1,000 cars, and had contracts
with dealers for 19,000 additional cars, making a total sale
of 17,000 for the first year.
Mr. Hupp has also had some experience In manufacturing
higher priced cars, but his hobby has always been, and It
has been his aim and ambition, to make and sell the lowest
priced ear In the world. For fifteen years he has concen
trated upon this one dominant idea, and at last has per
fected a car so cheap to buy and so economclal to operate
that It can be owned and uaed by practically every family
head In this country. t
This new design, approved by Mr. Hupp, Is tha result of
fifteen years' effort to make a low priced car and a car
that can be operated at a low cost and that will stand up
and give a greater service for the money than any other
automobile made. The car Itself la aa well built, good to
look at and eaay to ride In aa aa Its higher priced competitors.
It Is a pure stream line body, with all late Improvements,
and will not only appeal to the public at large, but will
prove a consistent, satisfactory method of transportation
suitable for the man or woman In any walk of life. While
the car will particularly appeal to those of limited means
because of Its low price, yet Its graceful lines, ample power
and economical expense of operation will create for the car
a demand among every claaa.
An Itemised estimate of the cost of manufacturing and
marketing these ears, based upon a production of 80,000 can
per annum, beginning In 1917 indicates a net profit of 909 per
car, after making a liberal allowance for the cost of manu
facturing, advertising, selling, overhead expanse, ete. After
allowing the 7 per cent dividend on the entire Issue of Pre
ferred Stock, It Indicates a net profit of 91, 930,000, or suf
ficient to pay dlvldenda of 20 per cent per annum on the
Common Stock, besides setting aalde 1460,000 to aurplus. These
figures are based on an estimate carefully compiled by men
who know the automobile business and successful pioneers In
This new car should average SO to 97 miles or more to a
gallon of gasoline, and at the present high price of gaaoltne
thia In Itself Is a decided argument In favor of the use of
The profits In the automobile Industry are too well known
to require comment. The day of experiment has passed.
Today the Induatry, the third largest In the United States,
la on a substantial and highly profitable basis. The greatest
?roflt Is being made In the manufacture of low-priced cars,
he demand for tha car that we propose to build Is apparent
to everyone. The cost of manufacture has ben carefully
worked out, and after proper allowance has been made for
the increased price of raw material and for any exigencies
that may arise, there yet remains a net profit of 1 60 per csr,
based upon an annual production of only 10,000 cars. That
this profit can be and should be Increased by the Increased
production Is self-evident. That the sale of the Preferred
Stock at par will Insure a sufficient capital to enable this
company to go on a profit-earning basis seems an assured fact
That the Common Stock will soon become mors valuable
:hsn the preferred seems Inevitable.
The Company proposes to adopt the most modern bust
ness methods, paying cash as It goes, and punulng a con
servative, buslnesa-like administration. The moat progressive
methods of manufacturing and selling will be adopted. ,
