Chamber of Commerce is Arranging
Gathering Next Week at the
Public Library.
From Wednesday's Dally.
Last evening the U. D. club of the
St. John's Catholic church was very
! pleusarftly entertained at the home
Mr. and Mrs. P. E. Schlater on
Fifth street and the occasion
attended hy some forty of the young
people of the parish to enjoy the de
lightful time that had been arrang
ed for them. The evnt was given by
the Misses Mildred and Margaret
Schlatsr. Barbara and Betty Ptak,
Wni. Schlater, John Ptak, and these
young people provided a most de
lightful tim3 for the members of the
jolly party. The club held a short
buiines.H session which was followed
ly r.everal hours of games, music and
dancing and at which the greatest
of pleasure and much merriment was
derived. At a suitable hour very
dainty refreshments were served that
added to the delights of the evening
and it was a late hour when the
young people departed homeward.
The members of the board of di
Tectors of the Chamber of Commerce
met yesterday noon at the Hotel
Wagner for luncheon and there tcok
up eome of the problems that have
arisen in the last few months to con
front the residents of this commun
ity, j
Among the matters discussed was
that of the paving of Main street
and the general opinion was that the
property owners along the street that
is to be re-paved in the spring,
should have an opportunity cf get- I
ting together on the proposition and
fixing on the kind, of paving and the
manner in which it should be laid.
One of the chief considerations rel
ative to 'the new pavement will be
that of drainage and there has been
seme suggestion that the center of
the street be given a Utile more of a
crown and that on each side of the
terways that will .be of considerable G. A. R. are Guests at the Hospita-

Just what the paving Should be

'pensarion plan as an amendment to
the pending measure providing for
refunding of the war-time loans to
the allied powers.
Except in provisions for payment
of the bonus, this amendment Is iden
tical with the house bill taken up
by the senate last summer .and re
committed to the finance committee
after President Harding had ad
dressed the senate.
Provisions for payment of the ibo
nu3 bill call for the issuance of short
term treasury certificates until in
terest on the debt can be collected
to retire it hem, and later the use of
the principal of the debt, if and when
such becomes available thru sale of
the foreign bonds.
Mr. Simmons declared he was
bringing the subject up because for
mer service men deserved the bonus
and .because the finance committee
of which he is the ranking demo
cratic member, had given "serious
consideration" to attaching to It the
funding bill before the latter was
reported (to the senate.
It was said that as a result of (in
formal conferences among democrats
Mr. Simmons had been assured his
colleagues would support his efforts
to have the amendment attached to
the funding measure.
Senator Walsh, democrat, Massa

funding the debt and the foreign

Accident Occurred Only a Short Dis
tance From His Own Farm
Found by Neighbors.
From Wednesday's Dall.v.
The community was darkened this
afternoon by a tragedy that wiped
iout the life of William Nolting, one
' of the young f armers residing just
west of the city, and which occur
red at 12:30 as the result of an auto
. accident on the highway only a block
or two from the home of the unfor
tunate young man.
Mr. Nolting was returning home
at noon from one of the neighbors
and had reached the locality of the
William Hunter farm, only a short
way from his own home when the
accident occurred. Just what caused
the unfortunate accident Is not
known but it is though it the
steering apparatus of the car in
some manner refused to work and
the car crashed into the bank near
the roadway and the unfortunate
man thrown from the car into the
roadway. The death was caused by
the ibreaking of the neck of the young
man, and he was found lying along
the road near the front of the car
when member:; of the family and
neighbors reached the scene a short
time after the accident.
The deceased young man was one
of the best known farmers of this
portion of Cass county and a son of
Mr. and Mrs. Fred Nolting. He was
L-orn and reared in thi3 community
and was a graduate of Plattsmouth
ihgh ichool. Mr. Nolting was married
on March 9, 1921, in this city to
Miss Ella Trichirren, who remains to
bear the deep grief that the tragedy
has cast over the family. He is aLio

Shew Increase of 105,000 Cars and
Trucks Over Previous Year
1922 Outlook Optimistic.
! Retail sales of Ford cars, trucks
and Fordson tractors have again ex
ceeded tho million mark for the year
, 1921, according to a statement given
out today hy the Ford Motor Com
pany. The Ford factory and assembly
plant production figures reached a
total of 1,00,740 cars, trucks and
tractors for the year, 'with retail
rales by dealers approximating 1,
093,000 which in the United States
aicne surpassed tha 1920 retail sales
record by 104,213 Ford cars and
I The Ford company says the out
look for 1922 is decidedly optimistic.
In fact, concrete evidences already
exist in that car and truck retail
pales for December 1921, exceeded
December 1920 sales by almost 25
por cent, and Fordson tractor retail
r.a!es for the srme periods show an
increase of over 100 per cent for De
cember, 1921, as well as an increase
over the total (tractor sales for the
month of November.
These fact3 seem to indicate thai
not only are the farmers buying more
freely, but that the general public
"s becoming more responsive and re
ceptive. Another point brought out by a
'comparison of production figures for
tli a past two yeans, shows that Ford
enclosed cars are graining in popu
larity, as 23 per cent of the 1921
production were Sedans and Coupes
js against a tot3l cf 18 per cent for
the year previous.
Recent redurlt'iors in Ford car and
truck prices trought them to a new
low level. The Touring err now sells
for $348, the Runabout for $319. the
Cour3 .for $580, the Sedan for $645,
the Chassis for $2S5. and the truck
for $430, all F. O. B. Detroit.
This is the fourtb price cut in the
past sixteen months. During that
time the price of (the touring car
alone has been cut from $575 to $348
a reduction of 40 per cent. Reduc
tions on some of the other types have
been even greater.
The Ford company believes that
this reduction, while not a large one,
is especially impofltant at this time
as it should go a long way toward
stabilizing market conditions.
Ford is giving employment at pres
ent to approximately 40,000 men in
