Hog Sheds for the
Swine Show Ready
On the eve of the National swine
show, which will be held here at the
local yards,s October 2 to 7. the big
nc steel and concrete hog sheds will
soon be completed, according to an'
nouncement at the exchange building
yesterday. Oeneral Manager Buck
ineham of the vard9 company is con-
siderably elated over the compliment
given the- new sheds, when but
partly completed, by Assistant secre'
tary of Agriculture Carl Vrooman,
who recently paid the vards a visit.
Mr. Vrooman, it is the 'delight of
Buckingham to repeat, called the new
hog pens "hog parlors," in preference
to "hog pens, as they were re
ferred to in description. Last rivets
are now being driven in the steel
braces and it is expected that the en
tire job, involving an expendtiure of
$IUO,l)W, will be completed before
With the new three-deck sheds, the
capacity of the hog division has been
increased from 287 to 612 carloads
per day. This increase has made it
practically impossible for-the hog
division to be overcrowded or even
overworked during a rush period. The
sheds are so constructed that they
can De used at times as sheep barns.
This combination idea is the personal
thought of Mr. Buckingham. It is
estimated that the hog sneds have a
capacity that will outmeasure the
largest day's run of hugs yet recorded
in the history of the yards by 212
carloads. , .

In spite of the fact that copies of

Wright yesterday noon scored a
unique record by arresting Charles

UNIFORM OR NOT

Discussion is Started as to
Whether Some High School
BOARD MEMBER SAYS YES
Is there need of dress reform
among the girls of the tlrree public
high schools of Greater Omaha? Do
some of the daughters of well-to-do
parents embarrass other girls by
wearing up-to-the-minute and expen
sive clothes? Will the adoption of a
uniform solve the problem?
