THE BEE: OMAHA, SATURDAY, MARCH 2, 1918. ' SKINNERS WILL BUILD HUGE NEW nAMmn m nit lid mm n u i i numiiu TLHIII Omaha Macaroni Interests Plan $2,500,000 Establishment on South Side; 33-Acre Site Acquired. 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 first magnitude. 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 enlargements. 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.
