Last evening the members of the
St. Luke's parish of -the Episcopal
church enjoyed a visit from their
j bishop, the lit. Rev. Earnest V.
Shayler of Omaha, who held the ser
vices at the church and gave a won
derful All Saint's day sermon on the
work of the church and the devot
ed ont?s who:-? lives had been spent
in the upbu'lding of the missions
of the church.
The distinguished prelate took as
the subject for the sermon, "Turn
ir.jr the World Upside Dawn," and
the thought of the sermon was the
wonderful work that the faithful of
the church have carried out In mak
ing the world more responsive to
the teachings of the Master, by their
p?r:--cnal services and efforts in
spreading the Christian faith. In his
opening remarks the bishop pointed
cut the fact of the present day ma-
toriarrm. the thoughts of the dis
armament conference being not to

hut berau?e of the cost in money,

Divine command and to love each
other. r.4? brothers and the keeping of
this teach'ng wr? more far reaching
than tho !os that might be occas
ioned in the purses of the people,
but the birhop expressed the hope
that wh-atrver the motive the result
might be for peace.
Taking the thought of the day.
All Saints day. the bishop pointed
out the intention of the church In
setting this day in its calendar as
one cf the inert holy days, to pay
itrihuta to the Faints of the church,
who have passed on, who are here
today and who may come tomorrpw.
and the sarnlne3 of the day to the
church nnd its people. It was due tc
the good people who had devotee"
their lives to the forwarding mis
sion of the church thaf its great
success had been won and their sac
rifices were honored in this day.
Bishop Shayler pointed out that
tbe first missionaries of the Christ
ian church were sent out from Je
rusalem, and numbered the persona1
followers of the Christ, nnd thesr
men had spread their teachings over
the lands lying to the westward in
Greece and Rome and lai3 the foun
dation of the church, suffering Im
prisonment, privation and sometime?
death for their teachings. The firs

ed the British Isles to preach and
292 years before St. Augustine was
sent by Pops Gregory at Rome tc
Britain, a christian missionary, St
Albin. was killed in the Islands for
his espousal of the faith of Christ
and laid the first step" of the church
that today reaches all the English
It was a missfonary of the Epis
copal churrh that landed at James
town. Virginia, in 1607 and founded
the first parish in America, and
from which had spread the teachings
westward to the wilderness and pav
ing the way for civilization on this
continent. From this parish had
fprung the strong men of the nation
in its earlv davs and their efforts
had strengthened the church in its
growth. With the revolution had
come the creation of the American
branch of the church and its forms
of church government had served as
models of the civil government of
The Episcopal church had after
the earliest period ceased to be the
great missionary force that it had
previously been until awakened to
the fact that in it lay the strength
of the church and since that time
the church has grown by leaps and
bounds and carried the message of
Christ across the continent and to
the Isles of the Pacific as well as to
China. Japan and the Phillipines
with the greatest of success.
It wa3 not alone the work of the
bishops and priests of the church
that the interests of thj church has
been advanced but by the work of
the saints of the church in the lay
forces as well and these were among
those to whom the church paid its
tribute on All Saints day.
Bishop Shayler in his closing
made a very eloquent appeal for the
work of the Individual in the jhurch
and the cause of the missionary field
and the advancement of the christ
ian teaching, urging the parishion
ers to lift their, glances to the high
er hills of the life of the church.

Editor Plattsmouth Journal.
Dear Sir: It is with pleasure I am
writing you for the purpose of nam
ing placing before you and for your
consideration the name" of C. 11. Al
drich of Elmwood, Cass Co., Neb.,
as the candidate on the democratic
ticket of this congressional district
at its next congressional election. I
consider Mr. Aldrich a man of abil
ity, a man worthy of the considera
tion of the people of this district
irrespective of party affiliations. A
man is generous to a fault with
charity toward all, with malice to
I believe should the Democratic
party honor him with the nomina
tion it would mean his election al
tho should Mr. Reavis, the present
representative, decide to run again
for this office. Mr. Aldrich would
ave to put up a pretty good fight.
But I feel assurred he could do that
and a clean fight, at that, that
would be a credit to his party.
I have talked with some of the
leading Democrats of the county and
they think he would make a splen-
iid man for the place. I have also
heard from some of the best Ger
mans of the republican persuasion
through a reliable source. T.iey ac-
knowedge Mr. Aldrich would be a
splendid man for the place.
In Conclusion Mr. Editor, will
ay I have no ax to grind and shoull
Mr. Aldrich secure the nomination
and be elected I would not expect
any favors of him. I am doing what
I can for Mr. Aldrich for the friend
ly feeling and the confidence I havs
in him as a man without a fault.
Expecting that this will meet with
your approval and that you can see
your way clear at the proper time
o place his name before the people
in your splendid paper, the Journal.
I am respectively yours with best
vishe3 for your health. A booster for
C. H. Aldrich for the next represen
tative from this district.

NOW PIAYING BASKETBALL
Frank E. Schlater was among
those going to Omaha this morning
to spend a few hours looking after
some matters of 'business.
The many friends of "June" Mar-
"11311 who is now connected with the
National Cash Register Co. of Day
'on, Ohio, will be interested in the
following extract from a letter Mr.
Marshall has written:
' I have been practicing basket
ball two nights a week with the N.
C. R., they are the city champions,
and have practiced with the same
earn they had last year with the ex
ception of one player and I am go
'ng to take his position of "Right
Forward," at least that's the way it
'ooks by the "write up" they gave
me In the paper. It certainly was a
surprise to me to read it as there
were about 25 tried out for the team
and all but four were big fellows so
T didn't think I'd stand much chance.
Take notice of the college I went to.
the fellow who wrote 'that up said
he didn't know where I was from
"o he said Center College. I am send
ing you the clipping:"
The N. C. R. basketball team, last
vear's industrial champions, are
about ready to start off the season.
The team has been practicing for the
nast three weeks, and are now in
Treat form, ready to meet the best
teams in southern Ohio and Indiana.
A few new faces will be seen in
the lineup this year, among them
being: C. A. Marshal. Jr., formerly
of Centercollege. and who will make
be fans 'step up and take notice
when he starts. Marshall is about
a? fast a forward as ever wore an
N. C. R. uniform, -and will be of
great help to the team.
ENTERTAINS FOR FRIENDS
Prom Wednesday Daily.
Last evening Miss Estelle Lister
entertained -very pleasantly at her
country, home west of the city in
honor of the young ladles employed
at the Nebraska , Masonic Home and
the" occasion proved most delightful
to the jolly party of young people.
The Lister home was prettily ar
ranged In the seasonable decorations
of black - and orange, the color
scheme being carried out In stream
ers and pumpkins and other of the
Hallowe'en features being used in
the decorations. One of the attrac
tions of the evening was the fortune
teller, who in the most weird man
ner told what the future held in
sltore for the young folks and much
pleasure was derived at this feature
of the entertainment. Other games
were enjoyed and served to round
out a mosjt enjoyable time tor all
concerned. At a suitable hour, re
freshments were served by the hos
tess that aided in making the eve
ning one long to be pleasantly re
membered. Those who were present
at the event were: Misses Freda Ot

the objects and aims of this society.-
Am sending you a few facts and
figures with paragraphed quotations,
from reliable authority, which, I
trust you have space and see fit to

ent week, as a matter of news and
From an editorial in the Journal
A. M. A. date of Oct. 29-21. Next
week we shall be in the throes of an
other drive, this time on cancer. The
purpose of Cancer Week is to ac
quaint the lay public with the es
setial facts concerning the disease,
treatment, and to reenlist the inter
est of the medical profession in con
trolling the disease. A large major
ity of fatalities in cancer have re-
suited from delay in treatment due
to lack of recognition of the disease
in its early stages. The responsibil
ity rests on the public for delay in
recuring competent medical attenr'
tion, and on the medical profession
for delay in diagnosis and procras
tination in treatment. The cam
paign of education should be steady
and continuous, and not a "flash
in the pan." From a circular letter
sent out by the Department of Pub
lic Welfare, Bureau of Health, Lin-'
coin, Nebr., date of Oct. 24th 1921:
and mailed to every registered physi-'
cian in the state of Nebr. "As the'
National Cancer Week draws near, I
you might be interested in the deaths!
from Cancer in the state of Nebr.)
during the few years. In the table
below you will find given the total
number of deaths reported for thejj!
years ii-iia-iu, anu ior me t
first six months of 1921. Approxi
mately, one of every thirteen deaths
occuring in the state is due to cancer.-
This death rate can be materi
ally reduced by educating the public
to the fact that an early diagnosis
and proper treatment administered
early wl)l, in many instances, entire
ly remove the diseased condition and
save the life of the'patient. ,
In Nebr. the following number of
deaths resulted from cancer: 1918
S67) 1919 S47) 1920 (988) and
during the first six months of 1921
(506)-excess of 1921 over 1920-26
Appaling as these figures seem
they are incomplete for no doubt
many persons afllicted with cancer,
die annually from other causes and
notation of cancer is not made in
It is urged, therefore, that every
physician in the state assist in this
educational work not only during
"Cancer Week" but at any and all
times. Respectfully vours.
