The dedication of the First Baptist
church at Union yesterday was one
of-ifce biggest events of its kind ever
held in Cass county and the attend
a nee at the services were from rill
sections of the county. The beautiful
church building is one that can be a
source of pride to the people of that
enterprising little city and one that
reflects a great deal of credit upon
the people of the church and com
munity who have given so freely of
their funds to complete the structure
and it is given to the people of Union
absolutely free of debt. At the serv
ices yesterday morning, conducted by
Rev. York, the last sum needed to
clear the church of debt, 82,500, was
subscribed and the building turned
over to the congregation for their use
as a house of worship.
The pastor of the church. Rev. "Bil
lie'' Taylor, has been a strong worker
for the church and his personal en
deavor has resulted in the building
of the church and in this he has had
the support of the business men and
citizens of Union. The money for the
building was raised largely through
the efforts of Rev. Ray E. York, of
Lincoln, one of' the active -workers of
the state, and who officiated yester
day at the formal dedication services
The services were aided by a splendid
musical program by the choir of the
At the noon hour a big basket din
ner was enjoyed by the congregation
and the visitors from the surround
ing portion of the county.
A delegation of some twenty of the
members of the young men's Bible
class of the Methodist church of this
city attended the services in a body,
making the trip by auto in the cars
driven by Jesse Perry, Dr. O. Sandin,
Ilallie Perry, George Brinklow and
Dwight Propst. The young men en
joyed the event to the fullest and cer felt that it was an occasion
long to be remembered.

In a few localities in the United
States we find patriotic men and
women giving up pleasures, luxuries
and habits that when maintained had
built up industries and trades, and
that if now renounced, as they are
foolishly trying to do, will throw
countless of thousands out of employ
ment. Boost everybody's game in pro
portion to your ability to do so. Pa
tronize your home inelustries, there
by keeping Plattsmouth people occu
pied. That is true patriotism, for by
so doing we are financially able to
meet th requirements of war as re
quested by our government. It is the
duty of every loyal citizen to do all
in their power to further any move
ment that is trying to benefit our
city. The Firemen's Big Municipal
Carnival is being staged to raise
funds to purchase a chemical tire en
gine, so as to enable them to give bet
ter service when it comes to protect
ing your property. This movement on
the. part of the firemen is a very com
mendable one; it shows true patriot
ism and sfiould have the hearty sup
port of the entire city. Let's all prove
our loyalty to our city, and show our
appreciation to the firemen bv Boost

The dance given by the DeLuxc
Dancing club at Coates' hall Satur
day evening, the proceeds of which
will be turned over to the Red Cross
chapter for work in assisting the
fee? J - cause, . -was" cm- of the larges'
iri point of attendance that' has been
held in this city for many months
and the crowd rilled the hail to its
utmost capacity. The young men be
longing to the organization of the
dancing club had the active manage
ment of the dance in charge, and from
this something over 8100 will be
turned over to the Red Cross for use
in the care and relief of the wounded
soldiers. The music for the dance
was furnished by an orchestra of
seven pieces under the direction of
V R. Holly, and this organization
also did their part by furnishing tome
fine music for the ball and without
cost to the Red Cross, donating their
services to help along the cause. It
was an event that will long be very
pleasantly remembered and its result
will be of great good in advancing
the work of the Red Cross society in
this community.

Last evneing Karl Roessler, one ;j'
the efficient clerics in the local Bur
lington shops, was tendered a very
pleasant farewell by the members of
the Cosmopolitan club, of which he is
a member, at Coates hall. The affair
was in the nature of a banquet and
the menu prepared by Fred Wagner,
the restauranteur, was most enjoy
able and was served in four courses
The table decorations were in a color
scheme of red, white and blue. Mr
Roessler was showered with the best
wishes of his friends for his success
in his new location at Alliance, where
he has been promoted by the Burling

The Tom W. Allen Shows, which
are to be seen at the Eagles carnival
are introducing to the pleasure-seeking
of Nebraska City all that is new,
novel and refined in the outdoor
amusement line. All objctionable fea
tures are eliminated; women and chil
dren may attend without fear of bet
ing offered. It is Mr. Allen's rule
to adhere to th show's slogan of hon
esty, cleanliness and morality, and it
is the strict adherence to this rule
that places him in the first rank of
representative showmen of today. The
Fraternal Order of Eagles is indeed
fortunate in securing the services of
this splendid organization for their

there was animation and music.
Twinkling like luminous stars, hun
dreds of incandescent lights cast
their rejection on the i happy throng
that crowded the carnival grounds
and seemingly, with understanding
eyes, put a stamp of approval up'on
the brilliont spectacle presented. To
say that the event comes up to our
expectations is putting- it mildly.
