The Mayor Says;
"Clean Up and Paint Up"
Dr. McKenney Says:
"See tl:at your teeth are clean and in a good condition, and your health
will be practically perfect. Have them examined at once.
"Every dentist in our employ is an expert. When you come here you
are sure of getting your money's worth. We do exactly as we adver
tise that's why so many men, women and children place their teeth'
in our care, and the best of it is, they send their friends to us.
"We'll be glad to examine your teeth and will tell you frankly if they
need treatment or not. The examination will not cost you one penny."
To the People of Omaha:
Omaha is getting ready for a general clean-up. Two
days have been set aside, so that every citizen can join in
making the movement a grand success. Miss Worley, rep
resenting the Omaha Woman's Club, through her efficient
work of weeks, has interested schools, churches, boy scouts
and other organizations, which have agreed to get busy.
The city, through Mr. Parks, the street commissioner, has
arranged to haul away, free of charge, all rubbish that is
gathered on those two days, except ashes. I hereby appoint
April 20th and 21st, 1917, "clean-up" days for Omaha,
and respectfully ask all citizens' tp gather accumulated
rubbish from garret to cellar, in yards and alleys, and
place them in the alley, so the trucks and teams can
gather them as they make the. trips through these alleys.
Never before has such an organized effort been made
in our city, and there will be no excuse for any rubbish
being left anywhere in the city if the people will do their
part Now, let us all ioin hands and not only "clean-up"
the yards and alleys, out let's "paint up" and give Omaha
a general overhauling. Then, let everybody take pride
enough in our city to keep it clean. Without the co-opera
tion of the citizens all the work that can be done by the
city will fail.
The police and health departments will be instructed
to enforce the ordinances rigidly after this general clean
up, and any person found violating these ordinances will
be arrested at once. We intend to make and keep this the
cleanest city in the country. We wantyour earnest support
