It was not with a propbr-Vs volco The
Hoe unnounced manr months no, before
the experiment wu umlertnken, that
Omaha nnd Its environs could not afford
adequate, mipport "for two first clots

statement seemed trite. Uut the rivalry
.between two liftf onranteatlons. each
flecking to contrpl the drrtlnyi of thtf
Amerlcun theater, from the business end,
-at least, had reached audi u poiht that
e.ther was willing to risk loss rather than
to concode. anything looking to settle
ment. Loss was Inevitable, and It came.
Kow these bis managing: firms are pur
suing the wiser course of co-oporfftion
