GROCERS PLAN TO

BEATING THE DEADBEATS
By A. R. GROH.
Now the Omaha grocers are going
to build an auditorium.
What do grocers want with an au
ditorium? you ask. They want to
"audire" in it . 'Audire" means "to
hear." Oh. sure, I . studied Latin. I
know lots of Latin words "amo,
amas, mat," "Gallia est omnis divisa
in partes tres," and plenty of others.
An auditorium is a place where peo
ple hear. Also where people speak.
The grocers want to do both. They
do both now, but they have to- hire
a hall to do 'em in. They propose to
have a hall of their own in Omaha.
They've got money in the bank. So,
why shouldn't they have one?
The grocers have much to say and
much to hear. They meet twice a
month. One of their many activities
is a credit bureau, which is an ar
rangement for baffling dead beats.
When Mr. Smooth D. Beat moves
away from Ames avenue without
warning to his grocer man. leaving
a big bill unpaid, the grocers associa
tion immediately learns of it.
"Good Day, Sir."
And when Mr. Smooth D. Beat
blows into another honest grocer
man's establishment on Vinton street,
let us say, and gets off his smooth
spiel about doing all his trading there
and he'll settle up on the fir: t of every
month and so no, the Vinton street
ornrerv man fixes him with a stern
eye and announces mildly but firmly'

The great popularity of the choir,
under the direction of Thomas J.
Kelly, together with such a famous
musical organization as the Minne
apolis Symphony, with Emil Oberhof
fer, conductor, is certain to render a
program of unusual merit one that
will entertain, interest and please ev
eryone who is in the least musically
inclined or enjoys music.
For example, nearly everyone in
Omaha knows the great possibilities
of the Mendelssohn choir and there
are few orchestras in the world. that
can be ranked with the Minneapolis
orchestra. An orchestra such as this
is like an individual it has a soul
and body. Its soul is its musical
qualities; its body is its financial sup
port. Emil Oberhoffer, the conductor
of the Mineapolis Symphony orches
tra, is the creator of its soul, while
a group of public-spirited men and
women of Minneapolis is the creator
of its body. Minneapolis has a rea
son to be proud of its orchestra. It
belongs in the same class with the
Boston Symphony orchestra and the
Thomas orchestra of Chicago.
