Puts Name on Office Door
When Title of Office Only
Adorns Every Other One,
in' State House.
'From a Staff Correspondent.)
Lincoln, June 18. (Special.) Is
State Treasurer George Hall a per
manent fixture in the state house?
I'otv the first two years of .his of
'.licial career as treasurer, Mr. Hall
allowed the offices to remain with the
old and much worn paper put on by
his republican predecessors. Carpets
full of holes and otherwise the worse
for wear, remained upon the floor.
Now all is changed. Bhight and
beautiful paper adorns the wall and
there is an indication of prosperity
on every hand. On the outside door
lias been painted in letters so plain
that the "wayfaring man though a
fool need nof err therein," the magic
wSrds, "George E. Hall,. State Treas
urer." Looks Like Fixture
People wonder if this is an indi
cation Mr. lall expects to continue
indefinitely as state treasurer of Ne
braska and that he has forgotten the
constitutional injunction "Four years
shall ye serve and no longer."
Some people say Mr. Hall expects
, to be a candidate for the democratic
nomination for the United States sen
ate against his old friend, Attorney
General Reed, and that the name up
on the door is simply keeping his
name before the public "lest we for
get." When Governor Moretfead was
chief executive he issued a warning
against writing names on any part
of thestate house and proclaimed a
reward of $25 for information lead
ing tothe discoverey of any individ
ual who "defaced" and part of the
building by placing his name thereon.
Doors of offices of other state of
ficials bear name of the offive only.
Mr. Hall has seized time by the
forelock and has indicated he has
a strangle hold on publicity.

serve the effects of the shot, two deck
guns on the stern of the freighter
were turned on it.

U-boat and it was seen to turn over

Cable Cbrd-40 Rubber
Immune to Tire Fever
JEHOLD how cord and rubber are fused into the
flexible, powerful cable-cord which forma the ex
clusive patent-protected body of a Silvertown
tire. Note the rubber core, and how each cord
'tendon in the cable-cord lies completely encased in a
cushion of rubber.
Corded and cabled under high pres
sure, which replaces all air in the
' fiber with rubber gum, it is fused
with rubber as a cobbler's waxed end
is waxed with wax.
That fusion of rubber and cord, cool
no matter how last the tire whirls,
when cross-wrapped in the
Silvertown's two-ply body, is the
secret of Silvertown's IMMUNITY
from TIRE-FEVER the internal
heat rubbed up between the plies
of many-ply tires .tne great "de
stroyer of tires.
With but two plies of strong, cool
cable cord Silvcrtowns, trade
marked, with the Red Double
Diamond, are bound to outlast and
outserve many-ply tires, with their
multiplied tire fever, v
Moreover they give a style, a
smoother riding comfort and gaso
line saving economy you can not
afford to deny yourself.

"Put it Up to Us

With tbe war soon to claim thousands of men
from productive industry, the task before 'the
farmer today is more difficult than ever.
Not only is he expected to produce greater
quantities of food this year, but he will probably
have to do soith a "help" problem before him
such as he has never before experienced. Conse
quently, he must look for assistance to those labor
saving machines which will enable him to do his
work more effectively and with less men.
But the farmer who enlists the CMC truck into his ser
vice has no fears. JIe knows it 'will speedily and satisfac
torily handle his immense hauling prorblems. He knows that
by means of the GMC he can cither dispense with entirely,
or release for more productive work, the three or four teams

What's more, he knows that the teaming the GMC will

quicker thus reducing the risk of spoilage from bad weath
