The task before it was one to dishearten mostcities, but Omaha, with marvelous push and cool headed organization, went at the rebuilding task. It built homes in the tornado zone such good homes that soon the city will be bet ter than ever. So rapid has the work been that the work of rebuilding more than 80 per cent of the wrecked build ings have been started or finished. As you pass through the zone one marvels that a city could recover so rapidly.
