William Lovelady, taxi driver, 2707
Farnani street, was arrested as a de
serter fro mthe old Fourth Nebraska
national guard when he appeared In
police court Thursday to answer a
charge of obstructing a fire hydrant
with his automobile. Lovelady was
recognized by Court Otficer Martin L.
Jensen, who was a second lieutenant
in Company A. Fourth Nebraska.
Jensen said that Lovelady deserted
his company while the regiment was
stationed on the Mexican border at
Llano Grande. Tex., during the na
tional guard mobilization in 1916.
Lovelady's wife, Naomi, a night
Janitress In the City National Bank
building, burst into tears when In
formed of his arrest. She at first de
nied knowledge of his desertion but
, later admitted he had confessed ev
erything to her the night before they
were married in July 1917. He was
18 at the time and she. 17.
"He didn't say he deserted. He
only faid he went away to see his
mother who was dying from worry
over his enlistment. After she died,
he didn't go back."
Lovelady will be turned over to
army authorities at Fort Omaha. Po
lice say the case comes under the
war department's jurisdiction as the
national guard was in federal service
at the time of the alleged desertion.

Fred H. Gorder, Who, for Many Years
Presided Over Destinies of His
Home City, Resigns.
From Friday's Dally.
The citizens of Weeping Water are
at present without a head to the mu
nicipal government as the result of
the acceptance of the resignation of
Mayor Fred H. Gorder. which was
made on July 19th and which became
effective on July 26th.
Mr. Gorder has filled the position
of mayor of our neighboring city for
a great many years and has become
as familiar with the business affairs
of that city as with his own private
business and in his resignation the
city of Weeping Water loses a very
valuable servant. The resignation
has been in contemplation for some
time and covers a part of the division
that has arisen in the city and which
Mayor Gorder hoped might be over
come, having devoted his efforts un
ceasingly in that direction. In speak
ing of the event the Weeping Water
Republican publishes the following
Weeping Water, Nebraska.

George II. Olive,
City Clerk.
To the Honorable City Council:
The time has come that I must
comply with the statement I made at
special meeting of City Council April
22nd. 1920. In the presence of Coun
cilmen Tefft. Marshall and Swindle.
I also made this statement in my of
fice May 3rd. 1920, in the presence
of Councilmen Wiles. Marshall and
Swindle. I have been holding over
to this date, hoping that the division
started before election would im
prove. It seems to me it is getting
worse and it makes it a hard task to
act as mayor with such a divided
people so am pleased to retire and
hope it will be the means to get
everybody in line for a better town.
July 19. 1920.
Honorable City Council:
I filed my resignation with City
Clerk June 18th. 1920, and no action
was taken so will ask you to kindly
accept resignation as mayor to take
effect July 26th. 1920, and oblige.
July 19th At special session of
City Council. Councilman Colbert
moved resignation of Mayor Gorder
be accepted. Motion carried.
