Mrs. Cuuegundes Sullivan PROPRIETOR Colwell Bros., Auctioneers WHAT PRICE GOOD CITIZENSHII Too often, things we do with the best of motives are misconstrued — and unfairly so! Much ado has been made regarding the purchase of a prize 4-H beef — and its gift to charity — by the Storz Brewing Company, at the Iowa State Fair. •'Accusation was made that it was a "publicity stunt". If only more persons and business firms would do likewise . . . would take the same interest in such valued activities! And if only more people had more faith in the actions of others, this would be a better world in which to live. *" As the advertising agency of the Storz Brewing Company, of which 1 am justly proud, 3*nd ,as 9. persqnal friend of the, Storz family for more than a quarter of a century, I KNOW .THE FACTS! The Storz Brewing Company r.nd members of the Storz family have purchased such prize cattle at state and county fairs — and have donated such purchases to charity for numerous years. I happened to run across a photograph showing Adolpli Storz, president, with the champion steer •purchased for his company at the Nebra.sLi State Fair in 1939 — sixteen years ago. This jhampion .steer was donated to Father Flanagan's Buys Town . . . and without any questioning of the motives of this fine civic-minded family! The purchasing of the prize baby beef at the Iowa State Fair, which resulted in the unfair accusation, was merely a continuation of the Storz generosity and its expression of good citizenship in the area in which it docs business ... an honorable business which hai been conducted by the Storz family for nearly SO years. The citizenship records of the Storz Brewing Company and the members of the Storz family have been outstanding: ADOLPH STORZ, president of the Company, lias always been interested in soil conservation and devotes much of his time to the improvement of cattle and horse breeding. ARTHUR STORZ, a vice-president, was just sdected as the "Man of the Year" by the Air Force Association, at its national convention in California because of his interest and support of Air Force activities. He is a national leader of Ducks Unlimited. He is a regent of Creigliton University. He was chairman of a committee which raised money to furnish and equip hotel-type barracks at Offutt Air Base headquarters, a revolutionary move in improving housing standards for military personnel. He has been a member of the Nebraska State Game Commission for several years, and lias been a national leader in wild life conservation. He has been a leader in. the development of shelter belts to minimize soil erosion. ROBERT H. STORZ, a vice-president, headed the drive which raised more than a million dollars for a new Clarkson Episcopal Hospital of which he is executive vice-president. He Jws been Commander of the World's Largest American Legion Post; he has been president of the Omaha Chamber of Commerce, and President of the Manufacturers Association of Omaha. He has been President of the Industrial Foundation of tin's area, and numerous other civic organizations. He lias been a regent of the University ot Omaha ... a trustee of Brownell Hall Girl's School; a trustee of the Nebraska Resources Foundation and a vestryman of Trinity Cathedral. He is a member of the Board of Governors of Ak-Sar-Ben, which has made a great contribution to agriculture in the Middle-West. Just recently he was honored by the B'nai B'rith with the "Best Citizen of the Year" award for good citizenship. He is a trustee of the National American Legion Americanism Endowment Fund. These are only part of their civic interest. Members of the Storz family luve received local, regional and national awards and recognitions for their work in philanthropic, humanitarian and civic fields to which they.devote much of their time, with no thought of return except the personal satisfaction of fulfilling their responsibilities of citizenship. They arc recognized among the first citizens of this area because of the endless hours of work and untold amounts of money they have given to help the Midwest in every possible f icld^ of endeavor. Yes, we, who know the Storz family, are proud of them. We arc appreciative of their fine civic service; we arc proud to number them among our personal and business friends; proud to lave them as civic and business associates. Morris E. Jacobs, President & JACOBS, INC,
