events of the season was the ball
given last evening at the M. W. A.
hall by the members of ahe
Plattsmouth Tennis club in honor
of the visitors here in attendance
at the fourth annual tennis

There were quite a number in-at-

casion will be one of the most de
lightful features of the tourna
ment from a social standpoint.
The music for the ball was fur
nished by the Holly orchestra and
was up to the usual high standard
and furnished a treat to the young
people who enjoy the tango, one

were several in attendance irom
