PLANS LAID FDR
OIL AND GAS PIPE
Chamber of Commerce Devel
opment Committee Pro
poses to Consider Project
'V Immediately. ; v
Oil and natural gas pipe lines will
be constructed within the next few
months between Omaha and the
Wyoming pil fields if the plans ot
Edwin T. Swobe, member of the
Chamber of Commerce, work out.
Mr. Swobe announced yesterday
that he had completed a feasible
plan to finance sucji a project and
that he would take immediate action
to put his plan into operation.
He held a long conference with
John L. McCague, chairman of the
oil development committee of the
Chamber of Commerce Tuesday.
At the close of the conference Mr.
McCague announced that he would
call a special meeting of the oil de
velopment committee early next
week to consider the project
"The release of more than 6,000,
000 acres of .oil land through the
signing of the oil leasing bill has
brought the matter of constructing
an oil pipe line to Omaha to a point
where Omaha business interests can
no longer ignore its necessity," said
Mr. McCague. "I believe that Mr.
Swobe's plan is largely practical, al
though it is somewhat unique, and
the oil development committee of
te chamber will give it close con
sideration. You can ' rest assured
that immediate action will be taken
to construct the much needed pipe
On the advice of Mr. McCague
Mr. Swobe would not reveal the
principles of his plan. He admitted,
however, that It involved the form
ing of a great corporation with
operation centered in Omaha.
"The cost of constructing the line
will be between $7,000,000 and $10,
000,000," Mr. Swobe said. "The
natural gravity from the Wyoming
fields toward Omaha would make it
possible to ' operate the line with
only two or three pumping stations,
thus minimizing the expense of
"My plan provides for the con
struction of a natural gas, as well as
an oil pipe line. This would furnish
Omaha with cheap fuel and prevent
any fuel shortage such as the one
last " winter. The innovation of
natural gas would also bring scores
of industries to Omaha and the pop
ulation of the city should be doubled
in 10 years." .

More Fabric-More Rubber 1
Moit Miles ' m )
like the century-old missions, SPRAGTJE TIRES are built to endure. Into the
SPRAGUE there goes the best fabric that .rtioney can buy. "And not a little of this fabric:
SPRAGUES have one more ply of fabric than ANY other, two more plies than most? others.
With these extra plies of better fabric there is used more, rubber. The SPRAGTJE tread is 88 per
cent, and the sidewalls, cushion and friction are 94 per ceht pure gum. There are no weak parts.
So well built, and of such splendid materials, are these tires that we expect every one to far ex-'
ceed its ,
Endurance lies Within the Plies
This shows the difference in number of plies of fabric
used by various tire builders: x
Plies in .
and every SPRAGUE ply is 17-oz. fabric, the
- strongest known. v
SPRAGUE TIRES are oversize. The SPRAGUE 30jc3i2,
for instance, is as big as the 31x4 of other makes.
More rubber, more fabric, built on oversize cores such
construction means more tire, more resiliency aid ease
of riding and more miles for the money.
SPRAGUE TUBES are proper companions for SPRAGUE
TIRES. They are laminated- built layer on 'layer of
94 per cent pure gum, . and nearly twice' as heavy as
other tubes. 7
You'll find SPRAGUES just to your liking, in appearance, in size and in
performance. And when you finally replace them with new SPRAGUES,
you'll find they've proved the most economical tires you ever used.
