PERSUING A MAN
OF DESTINY, SAYS
Washington Post Comments
On Tfip About Gountry
Says Many Predict ;
By E. C. SNYDER.
Special Cormpundant f Tb B. .
Washington, March 2. (Special
Telegram.) General John J. Persh
ing is agatn at his desk in his Wash
ington office after a swing of 15,000
miles "around the circle" inspecting
military posts, camps, cantonments
and supply depots for the purpose of
gaining a first-hand knowledge of
present conditions of our army and
the needs for future betterments. v
The general looked as fit as when
he went overseas nearly three years
ago to take command of the finest
army the United States ever as
sembled under the flag to fight in
the cause ,of democracy. General
Pershing paid his respects to Secre
tary of War Baker late Monday, and
, Tuesday was the guest of Senator
Warren It luncheon in the rooms of
the appropriations committee. Mr.
and Airs. L. E. Phelps of Meteetsee,
Wyo., . were also in the luncheon
party to meet the commander-in-chief
of the American expeditionary
forces, who bears the distinguished
honors that have been accorded him
by a grateful people with a modesty
and simplicity that have been the
subject of univeisal praise at the
hands of both press, and public.
What "The Post" Says.
Writing of his return to Wash
ington, a stall correspondent of the
"General Pershing and his staff
left Washington December 3. For
nearly three months the party
traveled over virtually every part of
the United States. Few soldiers ever
have received such a welcome as
was accorded to t the commander of
Amerkan overseas in every dtate,
city and town visited. One must
go hck , to Grant's time for a
While in the west, in December,
a movement within the republican
party in Nebraska was launched for
the purpose of making General
Pershing 'the presidential nominee
of that party at Chicago.
It has since spread to other states.
On the Pacific coast, in the south
west and in the south, General
Pershing has been acclaimed by en
thusiastic audiences as "the next
president of the United States."
Didn't Stampede Pershing.
"The sincerity of these demonstra
tions failed to stampede the general
or disturb the serenity of his mind,
which is wholly occupied with his
official duties to the exclusion of
anything remotely resembling poli
tics. He will not discuss politics,
and shows no interest in the sub
ject. "At Jhe same time the latest re
ports from Nebraska indicate that
the campaign there to carry . the,
state fof General Pershing in "the
April - primaries is gathering
strength, and that there is Strong
likelihood of the Nebraska dele
gates going to Chicago instructed
"While in Lincoln, where he was
at one time military instructor at
the university, he purchased a mod
est home, where his young son,
Warren, lives with his two sisters.
General Pershing's real hearthstone
is there, and he is regarded in Ne
braska as a son of that state.
. "Man of Destiny."
"The signs are that his name will
be presented to the Chicago con
; vention. Many candidates there will
hav greater initial strength than
will General Pershing, but his abil
ity is recognized even by those who
are not supporting him, while
there is one factor always to be
considered, and that is thifcrtliat
the whole career of John J. Per
shing showt very plainly that heis
what history calls a 'man of destiny.'
Some of the shrewdest politicians
in the country believe that this same
destiny will make him president."
Pershing Will Advocate
Retention of War Plants
Washington, March 2. Retention
of sufficient wartime posts and war
plants to permit expansion of the
army and resumption of production
of war materials at full caoacity will
be recommended by General Per
shing, he indicated today on his re
turn to Washington after a three
months' tour of inspection of camps,,
cantonments and supply depots over'
the country. '
The general's full report to Sec
retary Baker probably will be made
within 10 days.
There is strong sentiment through
out the country in favor of univer
sal service qf some sort, General
Pershing said, based on recognition
of the benefit to the, men themselves
and also on the fear that "we might
not have allies to hold the line for
ur in the next war."
"American citizenship Is sound to
the oore," the general said. "I was
impressed with the wave of Ameri
canism which is sweeping over the
. General Pershing said he had not
talked politics to "a single person"
on his trip and is "not talking poli
, lies now."

Auto Tire Shortage .
Later in the Season
A-warning to motorists to -buy
their tires for the coming season
now, when they can be sure of their
sizes and of first class grades, was
sounded yesterday by Henry Njf
gaard, manager of the Omaha TTrc
& Repair Co., 2201 Farnam street,
who said a tire shortage later in the
summer is anticipated by dealers.
In addition to the possibility that
factories will be unable to supply the
demand later in the year, there may
be an increase in the prices of tires,
Mr. Nygaard, who has been in the
tire business longer than any other
dealer in Omaha, declared that tire
of today give six times the service
that those of a few years ago did,
because of improvements in con
struction and the better care given
by motorists. Considering the num
ber of cars in operation, there is a
surprisingly small amount of tire
trouble, he said. The introduction
of demountable rims and the educa
tional campaigns conducted by man
ufacturers were responsible for driv
ers giving their tires better, care.
Mr. Nygaard recalled that one of
the most popular sized tires used
now costs about $20, whereas it sold
for $32 a few years ago. During
the same period the 37x5 tire, one
of the largest for pleasure car's, has
dropped from $108 to about $50. Im
proved methods of construction and
more efficient factory customs, with
better distribution, have been re
sponsible for the decrease, he said.
Mr. Nygaard has been in the tire
business in Omaha ior 13 years, and
at his present location for the past
10 years- His company is agent for
Diamond pneumatic tires and Good
'rich solid tires. "
