Wilt Cut Grain Production
That many farmers of Nebraska
will cut down their grain acreage
this year and seed more of their
land to grass is the opinion of J. T.
Carson of Scribner, who was a visi
tor at the stock yards Monday look

According to Mr. Orson, the
scarcity of farm help and the high
tost of labor on the farm generally
is the chief reason for this predic

This will have 4 tendency to cause
an increase in the production of

Auto Show Notes
The first thing that strikes the
eyes of visitors at the Auto Show
is the Guy L. Smith exhibit, which
includes two Hudson cars and two
Essex models. All are finished in
brilliant hues, the Hudsons being in
light blue and maroon. The bright
est of all is' an "Essex touring car
painted bright yellow, with nickeled
finish. The appointments of this
car caused nearly every woman vis-'
itor opening day to stop and ad
mire it. The spare tir? cover and
boot - for the top are watered silk
that matches the body color.
One of the latest developments in
automobile equipment is seen on
one of the Coles, shown tn the
main. floor at the Auditorium. This
is a permanent open leather top,
equipped with sliding windows that
may be pushed, forward to make a
semi-enclosed car. A sedan and
roadster complete the display. All
are equipped with disc wheels.
Noticeable on TTic main floor at
the show is the Ford exhibit, placed
and maintained by the Omaha fac
tory branch o the Ford Motor Car
Co. This is one of a very few auto
mobile shows at which Ford" cars
are,' displayed. According to auto
mobile dealers, the sentiment at the
Detroit headquarters of the com
pany is that Ford cars are too well
known to make showing them -4
profitable. It is Suggested at the
Omaha show that the fact that Ne
