How?, By providing the kind of fast, flexible and economical transportation .that keeps goods moving. Trucks travel the shortest routes . . . are subject to fewer delays . . . can never be sidetracked. Fast, small-lot shipments mean quicker turnover for the- merchant -- greater selection and savings for you. Why? Because of complete and fast truck service, merchants need not carry large inventories . . . and that helps reduce your cost! Trucks bring yo,u strawberries in February . . . fresh seafood in June ... the latest style in clothing. Trucks work for you in other ways as well. They help maintain Nebraska prosperity by employing nearly 70,000 people . . . pay a big load of all state highway taxes. So remember, trucks not only make your life pleasanter, but 'save you money in the process. Cooper, 5-0; Sanvarilc pinned Prafitt, 2:10. 133-lb.--Torn Eitel (LHS) dec.
