FRITZ' IS HARD
TO GET RID OF
United States Government Finding
Some Difficulty in Getting
The problem of what to do with
Fritz Detil. which was long a vexing
one with Sheriff Quinton and Coun
ty Attorney Cole, has been trans
ferred to the shoulders of the United
States Immigration authorities and
they are now busy in an attempt to
get this young man loaded on a
boat and headed back to his native
After a sojourn here of some four
years, the greater part of which
Fritz spent as the unwelcome guet
at the county jail, ' he was finally
placed in the hands of the iiuniigra
tion department of the government
and headed for his old home, in Ger
many, of which country he was a
All went well with the plans of
the government until Fritz arrived
at Ellis Island, in New York, when
a stumbling block was encountered
iu the person of the Swiss couusul,
who required tionje documentary
.proof of the birthplace of Fritz in
Germany. To supply this informa
tion the immigration department
has gotten busy and this morning
W. M. I'.rashear, of Omaha, one of
the inspectors of the department ar
rived in the city to locate what in
formation was possible concerning
the birthplace of the unwelcome
guest. Mr. Brashear visited at the
home of Joe Detil, a distant rela
tive of Fritz, who resides near Mur
ray and will endeavor to find out
more definitely the facts concerning
Fritz in order that the Swiss consel
may issue the necessary passport for
his return to Europe.
REDUCTION IN NUMBER
OF KID-WEEK DANCES
It has been observed that there is
a marked falling off in the number
of mid-week dances during the past
fortnight. Prior to this time there
has been all the way from four to
seven dances a week, including the
two regular Saturday night hops.
However, the coming of Advent,
and the fact that too many do not
prove successful from a financial i
standpoint, has served to lessen the
number materially. Last week there
were three mid-week dances; this
week only one is billed, that of the
American Legion on Thursday night,
to music by Holly's orchestra.
Ever since the war ended dancing
has grown in favor until it became
almost a craze, and even now it is
holding its own among the amuse
ment loving dances. But six to eight,
or even four or five dances a week is
too much for any town the size of
Plattsmouth. and the sooner the
organizations giving them learn this
fact and get together on a schedule
that will permit each to get ahead
financially, the better off they will
If not overdone, dancing can be
held in favor with the public for
years to come, but like anything else,
too much is too much.
RETURNS FROM HOSPITAL.
Frank Miller, one of the Burling
ton shep employes who has been
making his home with the George
Klinger family, returned home this
morning after a two weeks stay in
Omaha, where he has been recov
ering' from an operation at the Im
maauel hospital. Mr. Miller wes suf
fering from appendicitis and stood
the operation in fine shape and hi?
host of friends are much pleased to
see him hack home once more.
