Erlanger and J. J. and Lee Shubert,
who negotiated a merger of their re
spective interests here last week, are
negotiating with Charles B. Dilling

feld, Sam Harris, George M. Cohan,
the Selwyns and others, to join them.
The proposed merger, it was said,
specifically aims at elimination of
needless building of new theaters,
overlaoping of existing ones and ex
hibitions in the same city of similar
types of attractions simultaneously.
The theaters would be booked under
centralized management to avoid
conflicts and resultant heavy losses.
Smaller cities would be allowed only
one high-clasp theater,, it was said. ,

flf Mr. Omaha Business Man: The time is past for sympathy and consolation.
Prosperity is not "just around the corner;" it is, here and now. If you
are not getting your share, better consult the best "business physician"
known a first-class advertising man.
1$ There are many such "business physicians" in Omaha and there's not a
one of them who will not tell you that for a growing business or a busi
ness that t aspires to grow there's nothing so good as a growing circulation
a growing newspaper circulation.
I Mr. Omaha Business Man: No other paper can compare in circulation
growth with The Omaha Bee. For several months past The Bee gains have
been practically double or more than double any other Omaha paper. In
February just past, the story was the same. i

I MY BUSINESS BETItRF
You've heard much talk in the past months
about "concentrating" your advertising in
one paper. This talk was based on selfish'
ness and never had the support of the real
advertising man who knows that the way
to restrict the business of. the advertiser is
to confine his advertising to a minor part
of the field.
