The following from a Des Moines
daily will be of interest here, say
the Weeping Water Republican. Art
Coglizer, the youne athlete mention
ed is a son of Will A. Coglizer. and
a grandson of Mr. and Mrs. S. G.
Coglizer, of Weeping Water:
"Art Coglizer, former West High
grid star, is playing a great game
with Kemper Military academy at
Dooneville and is being praised by
the critics in the state of Missouri.
"Coglizer is playing at right end
and is said to be going better than
ever. He is also punting and drop
kicking for his mates and is said to
be doing a good job of. it.. He has
made seven drop kicks this season,
one coming from the 43-yard line
and another from the 41 -yard line.
"Of the eight games played by
Kemper this season, six were vic
tories for the Boonville eleven, while
the other two were ties. Kemper
has scored 258 points to 22 for its
sustaining, so great were the trades
therein represented. j
Now Plattsmouth's contribution to
that army was comparatively small,
but the classes of work to which 1
those who did go were accustomed
are fully as numerous as were the :
hues in Joseph's coat of many colors. I
In fact nearly every useful trade for .
which one might find use in every-
day life is here represented.
This accounts for the comparative
ouco with which tne e--serviee men
...... 1 u. -J
are handling the work of remodeling
and redecorating the interior of their
recently acquired club home in the
Carpenters, plasterers, electricians,
painters, upholsterers, plumbers and
paper hangers are among the more
important trades being called upon
to assist with the work, but there are
a score of others whose services may
be in demand a little later.
The work is progressing nicely
with the interior remodeling, and
tonight a detail of carpenters and
helpers under direction of Carl Wohl
farth will engage in constructing a
cross partition separating the rooms,
together with the tast of hanging a
set of double doors.
In the meantime plastering, wort
is being done and papering will be
next in order. The rooms have been
rewired (concealed type and fully ir.
accord with Underwriters specifica
tions) by Electrician Heneger and
his force of assistants.
Such spirit of enterprise is highly
commendable and doubtless had wucji
to do with influenceing the member?
of the Home Guard company to turn
over unequivocally their remaining
funds for use of the Legion in out
fitting the new quarters.
