Auto Men May Use Street
For the Motor Car Show
Secretary Powell of the Omaha
Automobile association convinced the
city council committee of the whole
that a permanent electric sign on the
Auditorium would be a wise invest
ment. An appropriation not to ex
ceed $800 was recommended.
The permanent letters of the sign
will read "Auditorium, and the un
derline will indicate the current at
traction. Mr. Powell's particular interest
was in the Automobile show which
will be held during the week of Feb
ruary 26, but he explained that the
sign would serve a good purpose for
all attractions.
The council granted the Automo
bile asociation use of Fifteenth street,
Howard street lo the southward
alley, for erection of a proposed tem
porary structure to accommodate the
overflow of the Automobile ishow.
Forty-two exhibitors have entered
for this year's show, as against thirty
four last year. '

"Sixty daily papers are published
in Cairo, Egypt, a city of 800,000 peo
ple," said Rev. M. V. Higbee, in the
course of an address before the
Omaha Ministerial union on "Africa
for Christ or Mohammed?"
The startling statement was ques
tioned in the discussion which fol
lowed the address. When cities like
Omaha, with 200,000 people, have only
half a down daily papers, it was con
tended that Cairo surely could not
have sixty, especially as Omaha is in
habited by well educated people and
Cairo largely by brown men of little
or no education.
But Dr. Higbee proved his state
ment. He had it direct from Dr.
Zwemer, a Christian mtssionary (or
years in Cairo.
"Thity-nine of the daily papers in
Cairo are published in the Arabic
language," said Dr. Higbee. "And all
of these are Mohammedan in their
influence. Many of the other twenty
one dailies also are Mohammedan.
Spreading Faith.
"In the year lW) the Egyptian
mails handled 25,169,000 copies of
these dailies. Two and a half million
copies went out of Kgypt to other
Mohammedan countries.
"There arc, in Cairo also, eleven
Moslem magazines devoted to the
spread of that religion.
"In South Africa we find the same
activity on the pant of the Mohamme
dans to spread their religion and thev
are making converts in large numbers.
Nor arc these alone from the natives,
but also from the half-castes and even
among Europeans.
"Journalism is a most powerful
means of spreading the gospel of
Christ. The printed page has many
advantages over the spoken sermon.

Want Missouri Pacific to
Put Watchman On Boulevard
As City Commissioner Withnell
was motoring to his office this morn
ing he observed a man in a closed
automobile narrowly escape death at
the Missouri Pacific crossing at the
intersection of Boyd street and
Florence boulevard. A locomotive
grazed the rear of the imperiled ma
chine and if the driver should have
stopped, a serious accident would
have resulted. i
Arriving at the city hall, Mr. With
nell brought the matter to the atten
tion of the city council committee of
1 lie whole, slating that the Missouri
Pacific had been ordered several
months ago to place a watchman at
this dangerous intersection.
Tuesday morning the commissioner
will offer" lo the council a resolution,
notifying the Missouri Pacific that
they will be held liable for any ac
cidents at this crossing. ,
