Omaha Macaroni Interests Plan
on South Side; 33-Acre
A new $2,500,000 packing plant on
the South Side is in immediate pros
pect. Lloyd and Paul Skinner of the Skin
ner Macaroni Manufacturing company
of Omaha are back of the project.
The prospectus is in the hands of the
printer, and a modern packing plant
combining all the most approved ap
pliances of the best packing houses in
the country is planned.
Thirty-three acres of ground lying
just south of the present plant of the
Swift Packing company, have been
acquired by the Skinners, and it is
here that ground probably will be
broken for the new plant this spring.
Who the principal stockholders
will be, aside from the Skinner broth
ers, is not yet disclosed, but it is un
derstood that one man has agreed to
put in $250,000.
Study Packing Plants.
The ground has been acquired quiet
ly, and the Skinners, without giving
any publicity to the proposition, have
been studying packing plants and
their requirements for months with a
view to assembling in their prospec
tive plant all the best qualities found
in the best establishments of this kind
in the country.
Lloyd Skinner is slated for presi
dent and Paul Skinner for vice presi
dent, according to the present plans.
It is understood that the Skinner
brothers will carry the large blocks
of stock in the new establishment.
The live stock and packing industry
of Omaha has grown steadily and
rapidly in the last 10 years.
Existing packing houses- of the
larger nationally known corporations
have grown to gigantic proportions in
that time. Concerns that started as
small independent packers that long
ago have developed into plants of
Meantime much gossip has been
heard as to the opportunity for other
packing concerns to develop a big
business in the yards of the South
Side. The Skinner interests have ob
tained what is considered the best
possible location available under the
present stock yard development. They
have excellent available trackage.
The Skinner interests have made an
unusual success of the macaroni man
ufacturing business in Omaha.
Scarcely 10 years ago Paul Skinner, a
mere boy, began the manufacture of
macaroni in a back room on east Har
ney street. In a few years he moved
into larger quarters, where he opened
several years, and then built the new
streets. Within less than two years
after this large plant was built the
growth of the volume of business
made it necessary to double the size
' was that the big new plant was ex
actly duplicated by an addition on
the east. -
The Skinner macaroni plant is now
said to be the largest in the United
States and there is talk of further
New Federal Agent Loses
Father and Brothers in War
Wigand Maunier began work Fri
day as a special agent in the federal
bureau of investigation. His father
and three brothers have been killed
in the French army since the begin
ning of the war.
Wigand came to this country 10
years ago. He lived in Alliance,
Neb., where he worked as laborer,
picking up an education in his spare
time until now he is a skilled stenog
rapher. Technically he is an "alien enemy,"
for in spite of his father and three
brothers who were soldiers of France,
Wigand was born in Bremen, Ger
many, where his parents, who were
French, lived for a few years. Soon
after he was born they moved back to
Toulon in southern France, where he
lived until he came to America.

Your New Spring Suit or Top Coat
Hart Schaffner & Marx
More and more the best of everything
is being stardardized in merchandise as
well as manners and the man who
aspires to be well dressed, is just as
particular about the label sewed on the
inside of the garment as he is about the
weave of the cloth and the cut of the
garment. THAT IS TO SAY he pins
his faith to a clothing organization that
stands for character of output rather
Hart Schaffner & Marx
have taken the leading place in the
making of clothes for Men, because
they have an organization second to
none other anywhere ALL WOOL
means ALL WOOL when quoted in
any ad concerning their Suits or Over

of the Woolen Market taken carefully
into consideration a statement that a

rarely can be made with truth, that it
deserves instant recognition and sup
