From Saturday's Datlr.
Last evening the sophomore class
of the Plattsmouth high school gath
ered at the school building ta cajoy
a very peasant time imong them
selves for a few hours. The even
ing was spent in games and a gener
al good time in the "gym" of the
school building until a suitable
hour when dainty and tempting re
freshments of sandwiches, ice cream
and cake were served that aided in
completing the enjoyment of the
members of the class. This class
has selected Jack McCarthy as the
president for the year and with the
other officers of the class he assisted
in the preparations of the party as
well as did Miss Hoberg, class ad
The only thing to mar the pleas
ure of the evening was the fact that
a number of young men from out
side the school circles took it upon
themselves to make a very disagree
able disturbance around the build
ing and conducted themselves in a
manner that was wholly uncalled
for "as they had no interest in the
party and by their butting in serv
ed to annov the members of the
class and their guests. It would
seem to the average person that
anyone not connected with the
school would keep out of the affairs
of the classes and particularly In
bothering around the school build
ing, attempting to break in on the
parties and other conduct of a like
character. "While attendance at
school would probably do these par
ties a great good, if they want to
get in on the social events they
should enroll in the high school at
the opening of the school year.

something doing every minute un
til far into the night. The day will
be opened in regulation military
style by reveille at 4 a. m. by a
corps of buglers and give the ex-
service men an opportunity of in
dulging in an old time crab at the

6 o'clock by the blowing of the
whistles of the shops and ringing of
all the bells in this city and all over
