George McManus, creator of
"Bringing Up Father," has just re
turned to New York from a trium
phant transcontinental tour. At a
dozen large cities between the At
lantic and Pacific he was accorded
,a welcome not unlike that usually
given a prince or potentate.
The movie stars greeted him at
I-os Angeles and he was, guest of
Charlie Chaplin during his stay
there. At San Francisco the "Dinty
Moore" club, named after the haven
that McManus depicts "Jiggs" flying
to, gave the great comic artist an
old-fashioned "Dinty" welcome. He
ai taken in an airplane over the
San Francisco territory. The crowd
. that welcomed him at Seattle might
have greeted a presidential candidate,
10 warm was their entnusiasm.
On his return through Canada he
renewed many acquaintances, for
.- the Canadians re numbered among
the keenest "Jiggs ,fans.
H M. Bitner. managing editor of
tthe Pittsburgh Press, was his host

he met "Maggie," a waitress at a

"Jiggs" became thrifty. Instead
of carrying bricks, he sought and
sold them on Commission. Then he

Two Famous Paintings
Placed On Exhibition
At the Brandeis Stores
Masterpieces of two famous paint
ers, both valued at $139,000, "The
'"Conquerors" and "Never Alone,"
will tie on exhibition at the Brandeis
stores .starting Monday.
, , Maxim Platanoff.' Russian painter,
. protege of Tolstoi, painted "The
Conquerors," which is valued at
$67,000. This work, which was fin
v ished 12 years before the war,
prophesied the world-wide struggle.
It shows a roadway, strewn with
AiA soldiers and peasants. Near-
by is a shrine. In the background,
''" with sword unsheathed, stands the
"Never Alone," valued at $72,000,
shows Christ hovering over a
French soldier, shot down, in the
marshes of Flanders.
Herbert de Moreau, who painted
"Never Alone" in 1914. was killed in
1918 at Chateau Thierry, a victim of
the tragedv he had portrayed.
"Never Alone" is on exhibition on
the fourth floor and the other paint
ing on the fifth floor of, the main
building of the Brandeis stores.
The pSintings were brought here
through arrangements made by
George Brandeis when he was east
i recently. He said more than 2,000,
000 viewed the paintings when they
were on exhibition in New York.

Paving of Nebraska's
80,000 Miles of Roads
Will Require Many Years
Grading" and Development Work, Eliminating of
Curves and Building of Drainage System Are
Necessary Preliminaries Rapid Progress Being
Made On Highways Now Under Construction.
By GEORGE E. JOHNSON,
Secretary of Public Wqrks.
In order properly to understand
the road building problem as out
lined in the state of Nebraska, the
readers must understand that with
Nebraska's 80,000 miles of earth
roads it is humanly impossible, re
gardless of funds at hand, to uve
any appreciable distance on these
highways within the coming few
years. Before paving can be laid
on any highway (and this is partic
ularly true in this state) an im
mense amount of rough grading and
development work is necessary. No
road can survive long unless it is
perfectly drained. No road can give
tht best service unless it is straight.
T-hus it is necessary that curves be
eliminated and that grades be cut
down. The present problem of high
way development in this state is do
ing just these things. The entire se
cret of road building in Nebraska
is thus stated.
The program of highway develop
ment began s in Nebraska in 1917
when the legislature provided funds
through the enactment of laws
which supplemented those of the
national government. The idea of
co-operation between the state and
the national government in the con
struction of highways originated at
the annual meeting of the American
Association of State Highway Offi
cials in December of 1915. A bill
was later presented to congress and
was passed in Tuly of 1916 which
appropriated $85,000,000 for federal
aid for highway construction, this
amount to be expended over a pe-
I riod of five years. Nebraska's share,
I after a laree aooromiation had been
taken out for national forest roads,
amounted to $1,600,000.
The Nebraska legislature in April
of 1917 accepted these provisions of
the federal aid law, thereby ap
propriating $640,000 for the biennium
of 1917 and 1918. The state high
way department was authorized to
co-operate with county officials and
to lay out a state highway system.
As a result of this- co-operation, a
system of roads was designated
which connected every county seat
in the state and served the greatest
number of people. The 1919 session
of the legislature passed a law
designating this state highway sys
tem by statute. It comprises 4,500
miles. At the same time this legis.
lature was,, in session, the congress
of the United States appropriated an
additional $200,000,000 for federal
aid. thus brineine Nebraska's federal
aid up to $5,866,303.82. TJie 1919
legislature then made an appropria
tion of $J,7JJ0. ine state nign
way department immediately began
to build up an organization and in
three years has accomplished all that
was Dlanned in the beginning.
To date the state has under con
struction 1,311.57 miles. This
mileage is distributed with regard to
type as follows: cartn, i.io.oi
miles; hard surface, 17.33 miles; sand
clav. 55.70 miles; gravel, 23.03 miles.
This means that there is under con
tract at the present time work which
will cost $6,359,359. Federal money

been apportioned at different times,

. Make Rapid Progress.
It can readily be seen that a pro
gram of this character rather than
sacrificing funds for what might be
termed temporary good roads is, on
the other hand, not only making for
permanent highways, but is, in it
self, the strongest possible factor in
encouraging local and county gov
ernment's to take up this work of
providing an adequate highway sys
tem where the state highway depart
ment's work leaves off and through
their local funds, jf there is such a
desire, go forward with permanent
paving plans. It has. been pleas
antly surprising to see the results
obtained through , a relatively low
expense, by draining, grading and
dragging highways that were impas
sible before, but which have been
made into roads that, through prop
er maintenance, are 1 being used
throughout the entire year. Thus
the stale highway department is
making rapid progress in one of the
biggest undertakings for the general
welfare of the people bf the state.
Ihe federal government supplies
one-half of the funds for state aid
projects and therefore approves all
plans and specifications. Registra
tion fees provided for automobiles
are placed in a fund which goes to
maintain state highways.
Plenty of Detail.
Not a small item in the develop
ment of a state highway system is
the maintenance of these roads. One
might say that this is perhaps the
largest and most important phase of
the entire program for it entails
hundreds of patrolmen, thousands of
dollars' worth of equipment, time
and patience. When a simple state
ment that over 3,000 miles of roads
are under daily maitenace is made,
the magnitude of the work cannot be
comprehended. The best proof that
can be offered comes through the
reports which daily come into the
good road's department. Sogie of
the most encouraging letters come
from traveling salesmen who have
driven their cars over certain ter
ritories which now boast of well
improved roads where a year ago
the same roads were impassible. In
many instances transportation ex
penses have been cut in half. Truck
lines are also in the developmental
stage and are a direct result of im
proved highways. Thus in order to
continue such a system of highways,
it is necessary that the state ex
pend a large amount of money for
maintenance purposes. This means
eternal vigilance in selecting: and in
structing highway commissioners
