MISS GASS' CLASS
IN MUSIC GIVES MOST
From Satur-lny's Doily.
Yesterday afternoon the pupils of
Miss Olive Cass gave a most delight
ful recital at her home on west Mar
ble street, that was quite largely at
tended by the parents and friends of
the young people, and the recital
proved most interesting in every way
and a delight to the lovers of music.
The rooms of the Gass home were
very attractively arranged with the
spring flowers and decorations of the
American flag, making a gala setting
for the delightful event. In spite of
the unfavorable weather conditions the
rooms were well filled by a well
pleased audience. The program was
carried out in a splendid manner and
gave the young people participating an
opportunity of displaying their skill
and the splendid ti-aining they had
received at the hands of their instruc
tor and each number was given with
the most skillful rendition demonstrat
ing the adeptness of the young people
on the piano. The program given was

TWO PLATTSMOUTH MEN
ENLIST IN NATIONAL GUARD
From Saturday's Dally.
Two riattsmouth young men, John
D. Schwartz and Frank Hilbert have
heard the call of their country, and
taking advantage of the opportunity
afforded to join the ranks of the Ne
braska troops, have enlisted in Com
pany C of the Fourth, regiment at
the recruiting station which has been
in charge of Lieutenant Kimbrell.
Those who embrace the opportunity
of volunteering into the ranks of the
national guard will be allowed the
selection of their regiment and com
pany instead of being joined in the
army of 500,000 which will be raised
by the conscription act.fand will not
be compelled to undergo" the severe
drilling and training ttiat the raw
army will have to be put through.
The two Plattsmouth boys are show
ing the proper spirit and are all ready
and willing to do their share toward
the defence of the country. The re
cruiting office will be closed tonight,
but there are a few days remaining
for those who want to volunteer in
the guard to escape being drafted for
TO THE SELECTIVE
The campaign that seems to have
been started in some sections of the
country against the selective con
scription is being nipped in the bud
by the government authorities and a
number of the persons who have been
urging the young men not to register
or who have been circulating the anti
conscription literature will be given
a punishment-fitting to their treason
able offense So Jar there has. been
but little heard here in regard to op
position to the registration, although
some literature of a rather mild na
ture has been shoved around quietly
by a few persons.
'The decision of congress that the
army should be raised by this method
leaves no room for argument and the
opposition to it is certainly contribut
ing to the cause of the enemy of the
United States and those who by their
personal efforts or otherwise seek to
interfere with the carrying out of the
program of the government put
themselves in the light of being con
tributory to the aid and comfort of
the common foe. With the actual
conditions of war upon us, the citi
zens should look the matter loyally
in the face and seek to end the
struggle speedily and victoriously for

Sharp pains often caught be across
