FEED M DEALERS
With Wives at Theater Party,
Men Get Together and Talk
Shop After Rouiing
Dealers obtaining: cars from - the
Omaha, branch of the Willys-Overland
company were the guests of the
branch office at a "get-acquainted"
banquet at the Rome hotel Thursday
night. . The attendance was not as
large as expected, as many of the
dealers who were in attendance at the
day session drove ti Lincoln to at
tend the state fair early in the eve
The "get-acquainted" meeting for
the dealers originated with E. B. Wil
soB, who has lately taken charge of
this branch. ,
"I wanted to get the dealers to
gether and have them tell, each other
and us their troubles and 'successes,"
he said. "I "believe we can all learn
more about handling our business in
that way than any other. ' If mistakes
are being made by the factory, I want
dealers to tell me and we will en
deavor to correct them. The automo
bile business is new one of the most
important industries in the United
States and it will have to be conduct
ed on more business-like principles
than in the past. This branch will
endeavor to place it on the highest
plane possible. I expect to make these
meetings regular events for the bene
fit of pur dealers snij ourselves."
After Ithe banquet O. E. Haring of
the Omaha branch presided at a "get-,
some-pep" meeting, Dealers from all
over the state responded on how they
sold cars and faults they had to find
with the Overland service. The faults
were few, and consisted principally of
the factory not being large enough to
supply their. demands. . . ..
A display of oratory was absent, but
in its stead were hard-headed business
men talking to each other and holding
a school of instruction on bettering
their business conditions. 1
During the last ear this branch has
disposed of $3,000,000 worth of auto
mobiles. During the last month they
have doubled their business over the.
corresponding month of last .year,.
The .wives of the dealers were en
tertained at. a theater party while the
dealers talked shop.
Central Powers partition
Poland; Poles Must Fight
Zurich, Switzerland, Sept. 7. Ac
cording to information received from
Vienna, the central powers have de
cided to carry out the partitioning of
Poland. Germany will annex such parts
of Russian Poland as she needs "to
rectify her strategic frontier" amount
ing to one-tenth of the territory. Aus
tria will annex the remaining hine
tenths and Emperor Charles will
promulgate a decree uniting Russian
Poland with Galicia and proclaiming
the whole territory to be the United
Kingdom of Poland, with himself as
king. - .
The new Hapsburg Poland will have
its own parliament, but its foreign
policy, army and finances will be con
trolled by Austria. The immediate
effect will be to make the Poles liable
to military service in the Austrian
army. It will also involve removal
from the Austrian parliament of dep
uties representing Galicia, giving the
German parties in the Reichstag
