COMMERCIAL CLUB MEETING
AN INTERESTING SESSION
Fairly Good Attendance and Much Enthusiasm Over Re
ports Made by Officers.
SAME OFFICERS ELECTED
Boaed of Directors Will be
at Some Time Later.
The meeting of the Plattsmouth
Commercial club which was held Wed
nesday evening was -fairly well at-
ended and as usual much enthusiasm
was shown over the reports made by
the oflieers and committees.
The first matter taken up was the
lection of oflieers, the old officials
laving shown themselves to be the
right men for the positions, confi-
fidencc in them was shown by a unam-
. t . on
lomus election as ioiiows:
J. P. Falter, President.
R. R. Windham, Vice President.
E. II. Wescott, Secretary.
R. V. Patterson, Treasurer.
The club voted to allow the presi
dent to appoint the board of direc
tors, which will be done later.
It is asking a great deal of a busi
ness man to put in the time which he
is compelled to put in as an official of
good live club such as the Platts
mouth club is. Especially is it a
hardship upon the Secretary, who has
to burn the midnight oil to keep up
the work whish naturally comes to
one who holds the position of sec
cretarv of an institution where so much
work is needed. There is plenty of
work for each officer of the club, but
the larger portion naturally falls upon
the secretary. Probably few realize
the sacrifices made by Secretary Wcs
eott of his own private business in or
der that the city might be benefitted.
He has made these sacrifices gladly
and willingly and w;ll continue to
make them gladly and wi'lingly for
he is the sort of a man who accomplish
es t Iii ncs and as his future is n part
of Plattsmouth he is interested in the
future of the city. Without detract
ing one iota from the work of Presi
dent Falter nnd other officials of the
club, we wish to say that if the .thing

the Postal Savings Hank matter. A.
L. Tidd took the side in favor of the
system nnd spoke for some length,
giving many ideas calculated to en
lighten those present who were not

a very interesting talk against the es
tablishment of the postal banks, dy
ing many reasons why such n course
would be dangerous to business es
jvjrudly in the smaller towns.
Much amusement was caused before

made before the debate beiran show
ing how the club stood in (lie matter.

and four against, on a vote as to how
many had no opinion in the matter

of the members present seemed to
be considerably up in the air, or
rather down in their chairs.
