Play and Dance at the Catholic
Sokol Hall a Big Success
A full house greeted the home
talent drama played at the
Catholic Sokol hall Saturday night
under the auspices of the Catholic
Dramatic club. The play was a
line success and those who had it
in charge, as well as those, taking
part in the drama, have been
highly complimented in the man
ner in which the club acquitted it
self in this, its first public ap
pearance. The dramatic club was or
ganized about two months ago
under the management of Frank
Racek, who has had considerable
experience in amateur dramatic
work. The title of the play pre

The leading parts in the drama

Racek, as a gossip, greatly amazed
Ihe audience and brought forth
much applause.- All of the per
sons in the play acted their parts
beautifully and the audience
manifested its approval by
numerous rounds of applause.
The Plattsmouth orchestra, un
der the management of Tom
Svoboda, furnished some line
music between Ihe acls, and after
the play furnished the music for
the grand ball which followed.
Before the dance, following Ihe
play, L. W. f.orenz gave a comic
reading in the nature of a mona
logue, Ihe subject of which was
"Experiences of a Married Man,"
which brought, forth much ap
plause. Charles Zaniba, a pupil of Prof.
Kolbaba, favored the audience
with (wo or three excellent violin
solos and was vigorously ap
plauded. The members of the
Catholic Dramatic club who took
part' in the play" were: "Frank
Hacek, Joseph Racek, Louis Racek,

The Endowment Campaign.
The educational part of the En
dowment Campaign of the Ne
braska Wesleyan university is
now drawing to a close. On Mon
day of next week the actual tak
ing of subscriptions will begin in
practically every town in the state,
for there are very few town9 in
which no Methodist church is to
be found. During the past two
months over 100,000 pieces of
circular matter have been' mailed
out, many letters have been writ
ten in this interest, several hun
dred addresses and sermons de
livered and newspapers in all
parts of the state have generous
ly opened their columns without
charge for articles on the Wesley
an and its need of the increase of
the endowment fund to half a mil
lion dollars. It is now proposed
to utilize a whirlwind simultane
ous effort covering the entire
slate to secure the desired
amount. Rev. V. L. Austin, pas
tor of our local Methodist church,
will appreciate the opportunity of
explaining all details of the plan
and the various forms of sub
scriptions and bequests to our
HIGH SCHOOL NOTES.

As Hit; bible school lesson yes
terday and Ihe Endeavor topic last
night were each 011 Ihe "Use of
Ihe Sabbath," Rev. Zink last even
ing took up the question and dealt
wilh il in a most practical way.
He said in part:
"God's holy religion has been
distinguished by three varieties.
First. The rural form, where the
father or head of the family was
the priest or teacher. Second.
The Levitical form, where priests
ministered in the temple, and last,
when Christ established what has
grown to be our modern form of
worship. The Lord intended that
one day in seven be given to
though! and spiritual mailers.
God's seventh day was man's first
day, as when he had finished all
other created matter he then
created man. It is the Lord's day
and not, Sabbath, and' Ihose de
nominations which call il Sabbath
are wrong scripturally and should
be set. right, in this mailer. ft
sohuld be kept in honor of Christ's
resurrection and every, first day
should lie a day when Ihe follow
ers of Christ gather together and
take Ihe sacrament following Ihe
example of the early disciples.
