they're swagger clothes. They're suits that would command im
mediate attention at even the regular prices, let alone at reductions as
radical as those of the "Removal Sale." The line of course includes
those much demanded fine Broadcloths, those Duvatynes, those Wool
Velours, Poiret Twills, etc Some of the models are tailored severely
plain, and others again are dressier, because of the trimmings. Among
the shades are: navys, blacks, browns, greens, taupes and beet roots.
Bear in mind particularly that this is NOT a special line of "Sale'.' gar
ments, but the regular new Orkin stock of suits, in its entirety. ' You ,
women have been bemoaning the scarcity of old-time "popular" prices,

Omaha, November 30, according to
word received yesterday by Manager
Parrish of the Bureau of Publicity
from Arthur Schultz, Scribner. The
purpose of the meeting is to get a
complete report on the soft corn con
dition throughout the state and to
consider means for its utilization.
For some time reports have come
from the north and south parts of the
state that corn was soft and that
much of it was being cf ibbed too i
early. The food administration has
many reports, saying that corn is
souring and will have to be thrown
Warnings have also been sent out
that corn should not be cribbed until
it is thoroughly dried out. An un
usual quantity of moisture in the cobs
is given as the reason for the souring
Mr. Schultz is a member of the
Farmers' union and it is quite likely
the meetings will be held under the
direction of this organization. How
ever, all farmers are urged to attend
the meeting, which may possibly last
for two days. Government officials
will probably be in attendance at the
That the condition of the corn is
serious has been urged for weeks.
The effect that this softness will have
on seed com for next year is also of
moment. The extension department

under investigation, but so far has
made no definite report, or recom
mendations. Lincolh Home Guards
