Trouble Brewing !
In Farmers' Union j
Over Men Firedj
Trouble is brewing in the general
offices of the Farmers' Educational
and Co-Operative State Union of Ne
braska, Eleventh and Harney streets,
because of. the sudden discharge of
General Manager D. R. Ellis, Assist
ant Manager C. R. Jones, Mrs. Anna
Johnson, head of miscellaneous work,
and A. j. Mills, bookkeeper.
It is asserted that these were or
dered discharged through the efforts
of C. H. Gustafson, president, and
O. E. Wood, state organizer.
"It looks as if they are trying to
make more places for members of
their families," said one man. "Mr.
Wood already has a son on the pay
roll. Mr. Wood already has a brother
who has made application for the po
sition of assistant manger."
The discharges were ordered in
July, to take effect August 31. No
one appeared to ';e up these posi
tions at the time named.
At a meeting of the Implement
Dealers' association in Omaha early
this year one speaker declared the
farmers' union 'lias within itself its
own destruction." , ;
The .union has more than 30,000
members in the state and 972 local
organizations. It did over $1,000,
000 of business last year.

Three-fold -and more -the in
crease has been a direct gain to
the man who buys a Packard.
Tripled production enables us to
buy materials to greater advantage
to use 'more ingenious special
machinery, labor-saving methods
and manufacturing systems. And
it enables us to charge against each
car a smaller part of a relatively
smaller "overhead" for both the
making and the selling.
That's why Packard quality has
gone up as Packard costs have
come down. '
The new Model is here.
To produce this refined, 1 'glori-'
tied, ' ' better Packard, it was neces
sary to enlarge our organization to
include 13,000 American workers
to double our factory space and
increase its efficiency to build up
an engineering staff twice as large ,
as that of any other maker. ;
And that staff has further devel
oped the Twin-six has created a
motor which gets utmost mileage
from even low:grade gasolines.
Big and better production
has enabled us to deliver the most
efficient, the most economical, the
most luxurious Packard ever built,
at a price as significant in auto
mobile history as the Twin-six
motor itself open cars $2,865
and $3,265 f. o. b. Detroit.
