PLATTSMOUTH QUOTA FOR THIS
LOAN HAS BEEN PLACED
NEAR $100,000 NOW RAISED
Concerted Action Should Be Had To
Get the People All
From Wednesday's Dally.
A canvass of the situation
morning showed that about
hundred thousand dollars of
quota, which is placed against this
city, had been raised. This places
the per cent at about thirty-four or
clightly over one-third of the mini
mum asked. This loan should be
cared for, long before this, and is
a matter that this city can easily
handle. The amount with the
abundance of money, is one that we
as a cjty can take care of it in good
shape. With the four banks in this
city included in the selling force,
which would naturally include the
msot of Plattsmouth precinct, the
matter of raising the amount should
not be a difficult matter, but it is
evident that a concerted action and
a thorough combing of the territory
allotted should be made in order to
get the amount over before the
times comes for the closing of the

We are past., the draft age, and

mitted to help in keeping the home
fires burning, in a way not thought
of a month ago.
While we vere attending the
state convention in Omaha, two
weeks ago, we learned that Phillips
University needed a man to teach
our boys mathematics. In a night
letter, of fifty words, we told what
we had done as student, as professor
in college, and as superintendent in
public schools and gave the names
of good Nebraskans as references.
In a few hours a telegram state we
were elected to the professorship of
mathematics in Phillips University.
Phillips is one of the leading edu
cational institutions of this state.
All work done at Phillips is recog-
nized with full credits in the state
institutions of Oklahoma and
Kansas. Last year the total enroll
ment was 813. This year the enroll
ment to date is over one thousand.
we have a large number of S. A. T.
C. boys and more are coming.
It will be a pleasure to instruct
these boys in the elements of Alge
bra, Trigonometry, Analetics and
Calculus, and thus have a part In

proper calculations to sink lurking

Since the Wirthmor Plan does make possible such
substantial savings, don't you think it the part of Thrift
to acquire the Wirthmor habit, and to buy these desir
able Blouses repeatedly as so many other thrifty women
are doing the Nation over.
When the makers present material
stocks are exhausted, the price of
these Waists will have to be advanced
to $1.50. This will be imperative it
the high standard of quality is to be
maintained. Then as now, they will
represent the very best obtainable
