VERY CLEVER ENTERTAINMENT
Each Class Has Special Stunt that
Pleases and Entertains Crowd
of 175 Persons Present.
Last evening the four classes of,
the Plattsmouth high school held a :
most delightful Hallowe'en party aj I
the high school building and which
was attended by 175 of the young;
people as well as the faculty oi tne
school and various stunts given
were more than pleasing to every
one of the members of the party.
The high school gym was very pret
tily arranged with the orange and
black of the Hallowe'en season as
well as the blue and white of the
Plattsmouth high school, the fes
toons being draped over the lights
and bleachers and here a portion of
the social festivities were held.
Each class had been required to
furnish some special stunt and thes
were given on the stage in the au
ditorium of the school and were no
vel and entertaining. The freshmen
put on a miniature vaudeville show
with four big acts, well advertised
and carried out in fine shape. The
first act was that of the "strong
man" and in this role Frank God
win won much applause by his great
feats cf lifting and was assisted in
the act by Russell Hackenberg. The
trained animal act also was much
enjoyed and was in charge of Rus
sell Hackenberg with Carl Ore. Guy
Graves. Willis Hackenbsrg and Ray
Lambert furnishing a part of the
fun. In the boxing match Clyde
Graves appeared as the freshmen
champion while Frank Godwin rep
resented the senior boxers and the
result wrs that the senior took the
court in the third round. The last
of the freshmen acts was the foot
tall song by t!-e girls who were cos
tumed in white with blue sweaters
and I. IT. S. emblem? and wearing
blue head guards and made a pleas
ing finale to the act.
The scpiiomores for their part of
the program furnished a song in
pantomin?, with Blanche Braun ap
pearing as the star and assisted by
Ptewart Chase in the role of the
lover while Kenneth Vandervoth
?nd Carroll Craig as Satan assisted.
Mary Hallas and Caroline Schulhof
were the ponies of the act and haul
ed the tiny wagon over the stage in
a spirited manner while a large
chorus of the girls assisted in the
The juniors performed the very
difficult task of operating on the
head of a supposed member of the
senior clas and Roy Olson was the
willowy and distinguished M. D. that
did the heavy work while Glen Hen
ry and Charles Hartford assisted
and the report of the operation was
that there -was a vaccum found in
the dome of the supposed senior.
In the part assigned by the sen
ior class one of the most clever
stunts of the evening was produced
ir. the dialogue between Allison
Fiynn and Will Matchalott and the
two young men kept the audience
in the best of humor. The two young
men put on several musical numbers
that rivaled the work of some of the
masters of the musical world but it
was found that the Edison conceal
ed back of the scenes furnished the
chief part of the music.
In the last portion of the evening
the unfortunate freshmen were led
to the gym where they were given a
real initation into the high school
and at the conclusion of the cere
mony were presented with certifi
cates that entitlad them to keep on
attending the high school.

GARD IT AS VICTORY
Since Further Wage Reductions and
Action on Rules Indefinitely
Deferred U. S. Ready.
Chicago, III.. Oct. 2S. The offic
ial recall of the rail strike orders
issued by the switchmen, trainmen,
conductors, engineers and firemen
were dispatched today when leaders
of the "b:g five" flashed code mes
sages from Cleveland headquarters
to their general chairmen. The
chairmen will' submit the messages
to the locals, and the official order
recalling the strike will thus per
meate the country in a few hours.
Railroad brotherhood chiefs said
that their resolution, adopted last
night calling off the strike, empha
sized two points as evidence of a
victory for the men.
These points were:
First, that action of the railroad
labor board on further wage cuts
that the railroads may ask will re
reive consideration after pending
questions before the board are clear
ed, thereby deferring immediate ac
tion on further reductions and pos
sibly postponing the question of a
new wage revision for nearly a year.
Second, that action on the rules
which the men's organizations wish
to maintain will likewise take its
place on the regular calendar of the
board, so that it will not likely be
come an immediate issue.
Government's Injunction Plan
Plans to avert the railroad strike,
which was scheduled to begin Octo
ber 30 but called off last night, had
been made by the government while
the strike still apeared a certainty,
District Attorney Clyne made known
Application for injunctions, re
straining the brotherhood chiefs
frem carrying out the strike, with
orders necessary to conduct these
proceedings, were in the hand3 of
district attorney throughout, the
country ready to be presented in fed
eral courts. ,
The applications were drafted by
Attorney General Daugherty at a
conference with five districts attor
neys earlier in the week, and fol
lowed closely those drawn by Attor
ney General Richard Olney in 1S94
for the injunction issued in July of
that year, restraining Eugene V.
Debs and other officers of the Amer
ican Railway union from interfer
ing with transportation of the Unit
ed States mail, Mr. Clyne said.
The government program includ
ed two actions to prevent a tie-up in
transportation and a third looking
to the punishment of strike leaders
thru indictments for conspiracy
against the public. These were to be
presented tr the court twenty-four
hours before the time the strike was
scheduled to begin.
Board is Congratulated
Smiles of relief wreathed the faces
of members of the United States rail
road labor board when they met to
day to clean up the many details of
the cancelled railroad strike. Hun

On Tuesday, October 25, at the Parmele the New
Edison proved that there is no difference between its
RE-CREATION of music and the original music. It
was proof that would be good in any court of law.
If you did not attend, take the trouble to find out
exactly what happened. Investigate all the details of
this drastic test. It was given particularly for the music
lovers of Plattsmouth so that they might know, thru
their own personal experience, that there is a phono
graph which can give them the exact performance of
the living artist. ' i
Harvey Hindermyer, famous tenor, made the test.
He stood on the platform, beside the New Edison. He
1.1 !. 1 . 1 '
sang, m tne miast or nis song, ne stopped singing.
The New Edison took up the song, and continued it
alone. Thus, they alternated singer and phonograph-
The audience had to watch Mr. Hindermyer's lips,
in order to be certain which was singing. The New
Edison's triumph was complete and spectacular.
A' similar test was made by the Dann instrumen-'
tal trio, with the same astonishing results.
Remember that no other phonograph can sustain
this test! Remember that you want a phonograph
which does! And remember that the New Edison did
it riqht here in Plattsmouth.
