Last evening-the Young Men's
Bible Class of the First Methodist
church held the elevenfh annual ban
quet at .the parlors and at the con
elusion of tho very delightful event
it was the unanimous verdict' that it
had been the most pleasant in every
way that this class has enjoyed and
that was saying a great deal as they
have had some magnificient gather
ings in the past.
The parlors of the church have
jut recently been redecorated and
were therefore in the best of shape
for the gathering and their attrac
tiveness added a pleasing touch to
the scene. The .Ladies of the church
who had the most difficult part of
j the program in charge tho supply
ing of the array of good things for
, the hungry male population in at
j tendance had the table arranged
; most attractively with decorations of
trailing green vines and bittersweet
while over the scene the soft glow
rf the candles added a pleasing
j touch. The tables seated 115 of the
: young men of the community and all
' wore present when the banquet hour
of 6:30 arrived and from that time
until 10:30 the flow of reason and
i feast of delightful culinary treats
1 The ladies, it may . be stated, seem
i to have excelled themselves on ihis
' occasion as thenfollowing menu will
indicate: . -
Banana Salad and Wafers
i Baked Chicken With Dressing
Hashed Potatoes Gravy
! . . Butabasa and Peas
f Rclls Butter Jelly
1 Pumpkin Pie . m Whipped Cream
j toffee ' ,
i During the ' progress ' of the ban
! quet the Holly , orchestra under the
direction of Prdf. W. R. Holly, fur
. r.ished a pleasing program that add-
ed to the delights of the occasion.
The orchestra was composed of Mr.
Hclly. violin; 'Peter Gradovllle, pi-
jno; C E. Ledgeway, trombone; Wil
liam Kettlefconieaxphone, and An
ton Bajeck, traps and xylophone.
The banquet was1 presided over by
William G. Kieek as toastmaster and
who Teceived his introduction at the
the. hands of one of hi3 .associates in
Ihe legal profession,- William A. Rob
ertson, and the pleasant jibes that
th speaker gave the toastmaster
I.ept the audience in the best of hu
mor and gave Mr. Kieck an Intro
duction to those in the audience that
! had not had the pleasure of meeting
him sdnce his arrival in this city.
Kev. H. KotUch offered the invo
cation as the commencement of the
The formal welcome of the visi
ters was made by William F. Evers,
president of the bible class and also
huperintendent of the Nebraska Ma
sonic Home, and who in a few well
chosen words stated the purposes of
the class and its advantages to the
members of the class in having the
banqueters of his pleasure as well as
that of the members of the -clas3 in
having the members of the party
present. The speaker also touched on
the activities of the toastmaster as
an organizer of a new secret society,
but. later regretted this allusion very
much when the legal representative
presiding over the feast, came right
back with a stiff shot.
The response on behalf of the
guests was made by Raymond J. Lar
son, in a short and snappy address
in vhich he expressed the apprecia
tion of the members of the class for
the feast as well as the delightful
toast list that had been arranged for
It was the first opportunity that
the Platsmouth men have had of
meeting the new pastor of the Meth
delist church, Dr. John Calvert, and It
was an occasion that everyone en
joyed when Mr. "Kieck introduced
Rev. Calvert to speak on "New
ficenes and New Faces" and in the
few remarks that he occupied the
program with, he made an earnest
plea for a greater breadth of vision
that might enable us to see the beau
tiful things about us and to become
more of brothers in our daily walks
of life, forgetting enmity and hatred
toward our fellow men by the fol
lowing of the teachings and precepts
of the Savior.
At thi3 time, the banqueters were
given an unusual and much enjoyed
musical treat when the Y. M. C. A
quartet of Omaha composed of Dean
T. Smith, first tenor; Hugh E. Wal
lace, baritone; George W. Campbell,
second tenor; Edward F. Williams,
basso sang several of their beautiful
selections. The progress of the ban
qnet had been enlivened by several
stunt3 arranged by Mr. Campbell, but
these, while amusing, were forgotten
when the splendid voices of the quar
tet were revealed in their song num
bers and it was .with the greatest of
difficulty that the guests around the
banquet board would allow them to
cease their sons. While Plattsmouth
has had many high clas3 musical at
tractions in the city there has been
none that pleased more than this or
ganization of Omaha laymen and
their part in the evening's program
at the banquet is one of unforgetable
pleasure. Their program consisted of
pome of the welij-loved melodies , of
long ago, a fex,bTlhe. standard songs
of today and tfopuiar melodies, while
ed Dr. J. F. Poucher of Omaha, one
of the best known public men of the
metropolis, both as minister and
leader of the uplift work of the state
When the banquet had been ar
ranged some weeks ago, former May
or Ed P. Smith of Omaha, had been
secured as the speaker of the occas
ion and it was not until 3-esterday
that the committee received word
that Mr. Smith had been suddenly
taken with pneumonia and was con
fined to his home and the attending
physicians forbid any thought of his
being able to fill his engagement.
The members of the class in charge
of the banquet then hurried to Om
aha and were able to secure the ser
vices of Dr. Poucher to fill the date
and those who heard the address of
this able speaker felt that they were
indeed fortunate in the choice of the
orator of the evening, and all who
were in -attendance gathered inspira
tion from the words of the gifted
Dr. PouchcS took as the subject of
his remarks, "Safety First," taking
up the efforts of railroads to pro
mote the safety of the public from
injury on their systems and from
that branched into the problem of
safety first in the physical, mental
and spiritual life of men, urging the
creation of a clean body, taking ex
ample of the early race3 when men
were clean, active and superb ani
mal creations of great physical
strength and the speaker pointed out
the physical strength of races that
had enabled them leave their impres
sion on the world and also pointed
out the necessity of the possession of
a keen active mind that would aid
man in the battle of life, citing ex
amples of the development of the
mental power of men to fill the sta
tion in life that destiny had provid
ed for "the man who knows." In
closing the speaker pointed out the
necessity for the right development
of the spiritual part of mankind and
the . beauty, of the soul that had
grown under the teachings of the
christian church so that it could
carry its part in the making of the
right kind. of men for the nation and
It was with regret that the audi
ence heard the close of .the address
of Tr. "Poucher as If wis filled with
the highest inspiratbn and idealism
and will long be remembered by those
who heard it
After the benediction by Dr. Cal
vert the members of the banqueting
party voted felicitations to . Mr. Ed

MAINTAIN POST DUES AT $2.00
At the meeting of Hugh Kearns
post, American Legion, held last
week, it was voted to maintain post
dues during the coming year at $2,
whieh is the amount heretofore col
lected. Last year the amount going
to national headquarters was $1 and
to state headquarters 50c. This year
the national dues remain the same,
but the state per capita is 75c, leav
ing but 25c of each member's dues
with the local post for payment of
club room maintenance and other
From the above it is plainly evi
dent that money producing activities
ere necessary if the present club
rooms are to be maintained.
Members of the post believe it of
more importance to maintain a low.
rate of dues and have a large and
representative membership of ex
service men than ,to increase the
duos at the expense of a decreased
membership. If state and national
headquarters would look st the mat
ter in the same light the Legion could
enroll the large majority of ex-service
men, instead of the less than
one million it now has out of almost
Ave million in service.
In Omaha, with no club room privi
lege, members pay $3 per annum,
while in some towns over the t:ite'
having club rooms, the dues are as
lush as $10 per year, with $5 not
an uncommon figure.
