THE BEE; OMAHA, WEpNESDAY, NOVEMBER 6, 1918.
Relation of Great Plant to the
Community is Being Ex
ploited in New Publicity.
A unique advertising campaign is
being started in Omaha by Armour
& Co. to direct attention to the mu
tual interests of the big packing
plant and the community in which
Jt is located, although put out by a
private business institution, is really
community publicity emphasizing
the elements which come in contact
with it rather than exploitation of
the articles sold on the market.
- "What we are trying to do," says
R. C. Howe, manager of the Ar-
tnour plant in Omaha, "is to show
what the benefit of an organization
like ours is, not only to the com
munity at large, to the producer of
live stock we purchase, to the labor
ing people we employ, but to all
the business interests generally.,
"The very fact that we pav out
$74,500,000 for live stock, $3,500,000
for supplies and over $4,000,000 for
wages and salaries per year right
here measures the value of such an
industry to Omaha, as it naturally
attracts the. producer to this market
to do his purchasing, and the wage
.earner, of course, spends all of his
earnings Here. We want tue busi
ness men to rca izc tins mure fnHv.
"To illustrate in another way, Ar
mour Lo. Has at tins point i,ms
CIIipiUJ C3, ItWCiy Miypui Ling lltlllll-
ies, and, counting five to a family,
this means 14,315 persons dependent
upon this one industry. Their very
presence here brings business to
tradespeople io supply mem wun
the necessary items of food, clothing
and other commodities. They buy
homes or rent houses, patronize
amusement olaces. attend church.
and contribute a big share to the
total of the city's activities.
Enormous Business Done.
"Our volume of business done
here in a year was in round figures
$84,000,000, while not over 5 per
cent of our goods were sold in ter
ritory tributary to Omaha, so our
organization, we feci sure, is a
financial benefit to the community,
not to mention our, share, of the tax
burdens and contributions to pub
" s "We are rot claiming special
credit, but we do not believe, as I
nave said, the importance of our
organization is fully realized, or that
:he community .takes as much ad
vantage of it for exploitation as it i
.night. That is why we are in
lugurating this advertising cam
paign, which lays special stress up
on Omaha, which will share the
benefits of this publicity as mufch or
nore than we will."

and will be given to the boys in a
few days. Miss Caroline Stringer

FILES HIS TERMS
Says That Defendant Wronged
Him as Kaiser Wronged
th? World; Sues to
J. J. Taminosian, acting as his
own attorney in an action pending
in district court between himself
and Edward Sissakian, has filed his
terms for an armistice.
He alleges that Sissakian wronged
him even as the kaiser of Germany
wronged the world, while he (Tam
inosian) claims to be actuated by a
"spirit of justice wnd democracy."
A section from the Taminosian
"The plaintiff proposes that if the
defendant confesses judgment and
surrender $200 in Liberty bonds to
the court, after all of plaintiff's
claims are settled, that the balance
be given to the Douglas county hos
pital with 40 per cent of plaintiff's
fee charged 4o the defendant oi
this suit, and if the proposition be
accepted, said plaintiff will consider
it as a vindication of his honor and
will promise faithfully that he will
not reopen his libel suit against the
defendant, but if defendant refuses
to surrender, plaintiff will continue
his legal battle to the extreme lim
its of the law until victory is won."
Taminosian is plaintiff and coun
sel for plaintiff, and in the fore
going claims a fee in the event that
Sissakian should lose the case.
The action was brought to re
cover $10, said to have been due to
Taminosian for having rendered ser
vices in connection with the funeral
of Sissakian's mother.

NEW CITY PARK
TO BE BUILT ON
THE SOUTH SIDE
Council Passes Resolutions fop,
Park Between Thirteenth
and Eighteenth Streets;
to Contain 70 Acres.
Another splendid park was added
to Omaha's park system by a resolu
tion passed by city .council Monday
morning. It will be on the South
Side, occupying an irregular area
bounded by Thirteenth, Eighteenth,
O and W streets. It has an area
of 70 acres, being a little larger tiian
Commissioner Towl has drawn
the plans for a park here which, for
beauty and utility, will be second to
none in Omaha. At present it is
wild land, cut up by ravines and so
hilly that it is unsuitable for resi
dence development. A few homes
ae in it.
A large delegation of leading citi
zens of the South Side declared that
the park is needed and wanted by
most of the people. Joe Koutsky
said that 95 per cent of the people
want the park.
South Siders Want Park. '
"The cost of the project, if
assessed against the property of the
South Side, will be cheerfully paid
by nearly all the people because this
park means increased real estate val
uations," he said.
The resolution passed leaves the
way open to acquire the property
and assess the cos to the people
most benefited. Actual development
work ought to start within a year,
Commissioner Towl says.
George Morton of the city plan
ning commmission was also present
and spoke in favor of this area as
a park. He said it has most of the
natural beauty of Fairmont park,
The plans call for three large play
fields, one each at the south, westj
and north ends; two base ball dia
monds, one of them with a grand
stand; a swimming pool, and a lake.
Classy Name Wanted.
Commissioner Towl wants to get
a "classy" name, preferably of In
dian origin for the park. He says
some of the high points were used
in ages past by the Mandan Indians
as lookout points. A view of the
river and valley for many miles can
be obtained from these high points.
South Side advocates of the im
provement also declared that the
park is a necessity as a playground
for the children of that part of tho
Eventually it is proposed to join.1
this park by boulevards to Mandan
park, Spring Lake park and River
