disloyal utterances on my part as a

life to its service in community build

will gladly do everything in my power
to aid it in accomplishing these ends.

Regarding Our 1918 January Clearance of
MEN'S SUITS AND OVERCOATS
At 20 Reduction
' Frankly, simply, with as few words as possible and with all sincerity we wish to say, that at
the present rate of increase in yardage, especially woolens, you will be asked fully 33i3 per cent
more for clothing of the same meritorious quality as ours next season. Don't you thmk it is good busi
ness to "look ahead?"
We are going to demand our clothing expertly tailored as in the past of the same depend
able materials that has made our clothing so serviceable we will demand the same faultless style
that has put our clothing on the best dressed men of Omaha and we will give the same clothing
service that has made so many satisfied customers.
BUT from present indications we will have to pay more for the same Benson & Thorne
standard of clothing, and consequently to place the same conservatively legitimate markings on our
clothing another year we will necessarily have to raise the retail price accordingly.
Our policy of merchandising provides for two big clearance sales a year and this sale this
year when clothing conditions are so unsettled affirms this merchandising policy.
The merchandise in this sale is not the result of "special purchases" or an understanding with
the manufacturers that they are to lessen the quality in order to stage a big "Annual Clearance
Sale," nor did we mark our clothing up when the first increase on woolens went into effect. Our
suits and overcoats bear the same original price tickets as they did prior to this sale.
Our assortment of sizes and patterns is complete. And we have all manner of styles to choose
from conservative, up-to-the-minute and in-between, featuring such famous makes as
and other splendid makes
