"Now or Never" Is Platform
of Executive and Advis
ers in Regard to Ship
Aid Will Be Insisted on
By GRAFTON WILCOX.
Omaha Dm Ld Wlra.
Washington, June 10.-''ow or
never" it the platform of President
Harding and those who aupport him,
in hi determined stand that congress
must stay in session this summer to
legislate for the relief of the Ameri
can merchant marine. ,
The president now is more insist
ent than ever that congress act on
the pending ship subsidy bill to in
sure the establishing of a privately
owned and operated world shipping
service and to take the government
out of the tremendously expensive
heritage of the war.
Mr. Harding positively refuses to
take for an a.nswer the excuse of
house leaders called into conference
on the subject that the issue is too
big, too complicated and too condu
cive to serious political trouble for
consideration now in the midst of
tariff and brwis turmoils on the
verge of a national congressional
campaign. Congress must not ad
journ this summer until k comes
substantially to the government's
relief in its shipping dilemma, the
president declares unreservedly, and
his attitude is so firm as to indicate
clearly that ifthe congress will not
take action on' its own initiative, he
will call it in special session to func
tion on the issue just as soon as the
anxious "members thijnlc they are
freed to spend their time and talents
in haranguing their constitucntics oa
the subject of their re-election.
Question Is Serious One.
The matter is unquestionably one
of the most serious governmental
problems of the Harding administra
tion. Developments in the situation
indicate a downright tug-of-war be
tween the executive and the legis
lative branches of the government.
The president, of course, does not
care to engage in a contest with his
party in the senate and the house and
if it is possible to reach an agree
ment which will obviate a quarrel he
will be glad. But there seems to be
no doubt that any such agreement
will not embrace a compromise on
the basis of postponing action of
the ship subsidy legislation.
Advocates of the shin subsidy bill
contend that unless it is enacted be
fore congress adjourns the adminis
tration of the government's shipping
interests will go to pieces. There
has alreadv been a' strong hint from
an administration spokesman that if
the measure is not passed at the
nresent concessional session the
president will tell congress to re
lieve the executive cf the manage
ment of the great post-war mer
chant fleet. He believes that with
out the shio subsidy act in opera
tion the effort to administer this
fleet will end in failure. The experi
ment of governmental ownership and
control of merchant vessels has
nroved to be futile, according to the
administration's view; if relief is not
afforded very soon, and that relief
furnished by the passage of the
ship subsidy measure, congress had
better take over the management of
the shipping board and the emergen-

Union Pacific Would Buy
C. P., if Terms Agreed On
President Carl Gray Declares Move Would Be Logical
One and Would Provide Transcontinental
Route That Congressional Acts Passed
in 60's Provided for.
President Carl R. Gray of the
l'n ion I'acific system issued a state
ment yesterday commenting upon
the recent decision of the United
States supreme court which held il
legal the control of the Central Pa
cific railroad by the Southern I'a
Mr. Gray asserted that the Union
Pacific is willing to buy the Cen
tral Pacific if fair and reasonable
terms can be agreed upon. In any
case, he said, the Central Pacific
should be operated as a part of a
continuous railroad from Omaha to
San Francisco, independent of the
influence of any competing line.
Confirms Bee Forecast
The statement confirmed the ex
clusive forecast by The Bee two
weeks ago, relative to the probable
results of the court decision. Mr.
Both the union Pacific and
Central Pacific, constituting the
first transcontinental line, were constructed-
under the Pacific railroad
acts of congress passed in the 60s,
which provided for a continuous line
of railroad from the Misouri river
to the Pacific ocean, and provided
further that they should be 'operat
ed and used for all purposes of com
munication, travel and transporta
tion, as far as the public and gov
ernment are concerned, as one con
nected, continuous line.

from 1901, when Mr. Harriman. for
the Union Pacific, bought control
of the Southern Pacific, to 1913,
when the supreme court decided that
the control by the Union Pacific of
the Southern Pacific was in viola
tion of the anti-trust law, and re
quired its release.
Held Defense Insufficient
The Union Pacific in that case
sought to justify its control upon the
ground that it had to buy the South
ern Pacific in order to get control
of the Central Pacific, and prevent
discrimination against it by the
Southern Pacific in favor of the tat
ter's southerly line via New Orleans
The supreme court held this de
fense insufficient and pointed out
that under the Pacific railroad acts,
discrimination against the Union Pa

Ogden to the Missouri rive, by the
westerly end of the line from Ogden
to San Francisco, would be a viola

"Follow Your Dollar Through"
Advertising Talk No. 6
What does your advertising dollar buy? Where does it "land"
in reiulti .eeured on the "follow through" test? These are the
real questions for the advertiser to answer for hinwelf.
Newspapers -sometimes fall into the habit of talking loudly
about volume of advertising carried, arguing this as a reason
for more advertising. This is a "lazy" argument at best, for
it evades entirely the questions of result secured and cost in
proportion to results secured.
It was but natural that the Associated Retailers arrived at the
position where they desired to know the buying power of the
circulations of the Omaha papers and the proportionate cost
of advertising; i. e., "rate per 1,000 circulation."
The Sunday Bee at present circulation and rates was found
to be the best buy of the three papers. The Sunday Bee showed
a lower "rate per 1,000 circulation" than any other daily or
Sunday paper in Omaha. The "rates per 1,000 circulation"
were as follows: Daily News, $0.0218 (highest) ; Sunday News,
$0.0217. Daily Herald, $0.0196; Sunday Herald, $0.0197.
Daily Omaha Bee, $0.0200; Sunday Omaha Bee, $0.0179
The above figures show The Sunday Bee "rate per 1,000"
10 lower than any Omaha daily paper and 10 lower than
any Omaha Sunday paper.
Here is' a picture of the interior
of a restaurant in Lincoln where
Fred Brown, manacle man of Ben
son, held up two women and a little
girl Friday afternoon while he

while possemen searched eagerly for
him but a few blocks away. At
