By adding this plant to its already
large group ot factories, M. b
Smith & Co. becomes one of the
largest manufacturers of women's
and children's dresses and aprons in
the country. '
Although the company has been
manufacturing men's' garments for
more than 30 years, it was not until
five years ago that the manufacture
of women s lines was undertaken,
! The . Mtna laylor dress was
then introduced to the public, and
its success has been almost spec
tacular. ' In five years the business
has grown from practically nothing
to $1,000,000- per year, and only lack
of manufacturing facilities prevented
more rapid expansion. '
In an endeavor to meet the de
rnand, branch factories were estab
lished at several points in Nebraska.
A scarcity of operators, however,
limited the output of the factories,
and the. company realized that it
was necessary to establish a large
plant further east, to take care of
the insistent demand from territory
east of the Mississippi river, which
could not be met under existing
The purchase of the American
Garment Co. fattory was the cul
mination of a long search for a suit
able location. The purchase gives
M. E. Smith & Co. a factory cap
able of producing $1,000,000 worth
of garments annually, a trained lac
tory organization and facilities for
further expansion as the buildings
will accommodate a large number
of additional machines.
"The purchase of this business
must not be understood as signify
in in anv way that we are slight
ing Omaha in the least degree,"
said A. C Smith, president of the
company. On the ..contrary, we
shall continue to expand our Omaha
plants as fast as we can secure ad

elsewhere will be enlarged as soon
as possible.

Hudson Victories Still Lead
In Super-Six Endurance
The Hudson Super-Six won all
worth while stock car records and be
. cause of its supreme endurance de
cisively conquered many of the swift-,
est and costliest, racers , that ever
struggled for speedway honors.
Those stock car records, certified
by the A. A. Am established its com
manding superiority. But it was not
fa winning the Pike's Peak Hill Climb
with a 'Special, the double trans- .
continental run with a phaeton model,
the fastest mile for, a stock chassis, or
la travelling 1819 miles in 24 hours
end breaking all acceleration records,
that the Super-Six gained its greatest
prestige and repute as a life car de-
pendable in any emergency and mas
ter of any conditions of travel.
' Leader on Highway and Boulevard
Sixty thousand Hudson Super-Six
owners, in the daily use of the Super
Six, on city boulevard and unim
proved country road, have proved it
the foremost car in endurance and
faultless performance. The driver of
a Hudson handles the wheel confident- ,
ty, because he knows thai a touch
wQ loose the eager power of the Hud- ,
. , ton against any obstacle of time, dis
tance or gravity, and that its endur-'
nee will always arrive.
Hudson leadership rests upon in
itiative. As a pioneer in mechanical
design' it ' developed the exclusive
Super-Six motor, which by minimis
ing friction delivered the maximum
of engine power to the driving wheels
without self-destruction, and pro
duced the car that will last a life tune. 1
Hudson initiative has also made it
the leader of mode.
This supremacy of style has not
emphasised itself in the Hudson as it
would have in another make of car,
because it was dwarfed and dimin
ished by the more vivid mechanical
leadership, typified in great feats of
v speed and hard struggle against time
over thousands of miles of rugged roads.
Hudton is Model of Fashion
But the owners of Hudsons know,
and their friends know, and better
than anyone else the men in the trade
know and admit the Hudson leader
ship in design. The distinctive types
of Hudson bodies have influenced
motor design everywhere. But as
Hudson is the leader you will always
find in it the advance ideas, the fit
ness and balance of a creation con
ceived in its entirety, and not a patch
up of plagarised design.
It will be some time yet before the
factory, will reach full production.
To insure getting a Hudson , Super
Six when you want one you had
better act now. Sales have already
compelled the establishment of Hud
son waiting lists. '

In shoes, as in everything else one wears,
conservatism suggests finding the point where good
style and sound quality meet with fair and con
servative price.
That is the Regent Shoe Cos principle.
And the Regent program of concentrat
ing their efforts on the wanted lasts and leathers is
the reason why you get such sound value at this
store. , -
Look at this "Onimod" for instance

Mayor on Trial in Court
and at Bar of Public Opinion
Los Angeles. April 17. The trial
of F. T. Woodman, mayor of Los
Angeles, on a grand jury indictment,
clterging in effect that he had ac
cepted a bribe tor protecting certain
forms of vice, began today in the
criminal department of the superior
court here. '
Counsel agreed, when questioned
by the court on the probable length
of the trial, that two days would be
needed to secure a jury, but the
evidence probably would be brief
enough to permit the case going to
the jury before May 6, the date of
the municipal primary election at
which Mr. Woodman is candidate
for re-election as mayor.
