TO BE YOTED ON
PROPOSITION TO COME UP AT THE
REGULAR ELK CT I ON NEXT
A petition wag Med with tho City
Clork. Saturday, containing over tho
required number o names, asking
thnt tho voters bo given an opportun
ity at tho coming city election, to voto
for or against allowing motion pic
ture shows to run on Sunday In North
Platte. Tho proposition was put to a
roto two years ago and lost. Tho voto
at that tlmo was 1,085 against Sunday
movies and 837 for them.
Those back of tho proposition now
nay that there Is a great demand for
tho shows to bo opon on Sunday. Thoy
claim that travelling men avoid North
Platto as a placo to stop over Sunday
bocauso thoy cannot go to a movie.
They claim that Omaha, Grand Is
land, Sidney and somo other places
arc open on Sunday and that they nro
not worso than North Platto. It Is con
tended that tho other diversions which
neoplo hero indulgo In on Sunday aro
much worso than atttcndlng tho mov
ing pictures nnd also say that tho
churches will not suffer In their at
tendance from having the picture
Those opposing the moving picture
houses opening on Sunday say that It
will not Increase tho business of tho
theatres but will just spread it out,
that it docs not make for consistent
church attendance especially among
tho young, that it is inconsistent with
tho spirit of rest on tho Sabbath and
that many cities in Nebraska and other
states have consistently rofused to nl-
lw tho breaking of tho Sabbath by
commercialized entertainment. They
jwint to Lincoln, York, Kearney and
other places as examples. fi
Wo aro informed that the picture
Fhow managers aro united in asking
emission to open on Sunday and
i at there is a strong tendency to
i. 'vision among tho church members
in regard to tho matter. It will prob

.This wi'.s part of the remarks mndo
by member of tho Hoard of Publla
Welfaro when thoy mot with tho Board
of County Commissioners lato yester
day afternoon. Tho committee from
tho Wolfaro Board cousjsting of D. M.
Lopoldt, Mrs. H. R. McMlchnel, Mrs.
Jack McGraw, W. R. Malonoy and J.
II VanCleavo asked tho County Com
missioners for an appropriation of $75
a month or $1000 for tho coming year.
Tho Lincoln County ned Cross has
made an appropriation of $25 a month
or $300 a year and tho City of North
Platto Is ready with $150 a month or
$1800. The total or about $3000 is to
bo paid to a trained Superintendent
of Public "Welfare. Such a largo part
of tho work of this officer would bo

art charges of County that It would
be cheaper for tho County to go in on
such a proposition than to keep on as
it is going now. Tho Board seemed to
look on tho matter with considerable
favor and promised an answer nt its
meeting next Monday.
