The Pupils Have Some Good Looking
Experiments in Show "Window at
Westcott's on Corner.
The development and fostering of
the bird life which has grown to be
such an important interest in the
schools of the country has been taken
vp quite extensively by the schools in
this section of the west, with the re
sult that the children are being taught
to care for and assist in protecting the
birds in their community. To further
this plan the children have been en
gaged in the building of bird houses
that the little feathered ones might
have a safe home where they might
be protected from the ravages of man
and beast. In the city of Lincoln re
cently the store of Miller and Paine
made an exhibition of the bird houses
constructed by the younger pupils of
the public schools and this also was
carried out in Omaha where the court
house was used to exhibit the work of
the youngsters. In thirty-rive schools
in Omaha there were 3(55 bird houses
constructed to house the little feather
ed residents of the city. A short time
ago the teacher of one of the rooms
in the Central building in this city be
came interested in the agitation for
the fostering of the study of birel and
animal life by personal work and im
pressed upon the little folks the
beauty of the bird world and the value
of these little feathered creatures to
our great old world. As a result of
this work the children soon became in
teresle'd and the work of taking part
in the bird week was undertaken by
them. The little folks entered into the
work of preparing bird houses and out
of this one room thirty houses were
turned out and they show the interest
that the children take in this line of
woik. which would be even greater
with a system of manual training. The
bird house.? made by the little folks
are on exhibition in the Fifth street
window of the store of C. E. West
cott's Sons and are certainly clever in
every way, and the designs are very
artistic in their designing and con
struction and embrace a large number
of different styles and are well worth
looking over. The teachers desire to
express their appreciation of the help
fulness of the parents in the promot
ing of the work.
The young folks cf the third and
fourth grades who constructed the
bird houses on exhibition are as fol
lows: Louis Smetana, Alice Westcott,
Adolph Komer.da, Herman Tiekotter,
Raymond Yeliek, Albert Pendl, Edith
Ye'iek, Marie Black, Kenneth Sulli
vr.n, Joseph Buttery, lone Tower. Nor
rh; Cummins, Wayne Warga, Jesse
Roetel, Harry Poisal, Sterling Hatt,
Cordelia Black, Florence Yelick, Ro
berta Propst, Helen Likewise, Dor
othy Cowles, Ben Rummerfield, Fred
Howiand, Anna Smetana, Fayne Rum
mei field. Lena Rummerfield, Chester
Baylor, Franklin Keif, Arthur Keif.
These are the only ones in the
school who have their houses on ex
hibition. Also the houses are not the
only ones which have been made in
the schools as there are pupils in
others grades who have been interest
ed in the work.

A VOICE FROM FORM
ER CITIZEN AND HIGH
From SaturdaVs Da!7.
Just how the proposition of the
high school bonds and a new school
building is viewed by those who have
had the experience of working
through the school and graduating, is
shown by the following letter from
Roy V. Pepperberg, a former Platts
mouth young man, now residing at
I have read with much interest the
discussions in recent issues of the
Journal regarding the voting of bonds
for the proposed high school building.
As an alumnus of the P. II. S. class of
Rt03, I will always have a kindly in

If any city in the state needs a new
high school building it is certainly
Plattsmouth. The present building
was inadquate from the day it was
built. Properly equipped schools are
an asset to any city and the value to
the city may be shown by the way the
new schools in Lincoln have drawn
people to Lincoln from all directions.
It will do the same for Plattsmouth.
One other thing. Plattsmouth, as a
lailroad town, is an industrial center.
The high school should have a depart
ment of manual training, also domes
tic science. These branches might in

Here's hoping that the bond issue
will carry by an overwhelming ma
jority. Yours very truly,
Roy V. Pepperberg.

From Frldav's PaHv.
District Judge James T. Regley is
thinking seriously of moving to
Plattsmouth to reside in the near fu

parts cf his district. However, strong
pressure is being brought to bear on
Judge Regley to remain in Papillion.
