TIME FOR ACTION
ON TOURIST CAMP
Action of Other Cities Points the
Way for Thi3 City to Get Busy
on Plans Right Away.
The action of the commercial
clubs and other civic bodies over
the eastern part of the rtate relative
to preparing tourist carups for the
summer, points the way clearly for
this city to take simii;ir action and
get ready to afford a .'topping place
for the auto tourists who will in a
few months begin their trip through
this city ever the Kins of Trails and
George Washington highways to the
summer resorts in the north and the
Pacific northwest.
It is a matter that is of much im
portance to the residents of the city
that this should be looked into and
if there is any pofsible way, a suit
able location for a tourist camp
should be secured and placed in
readiness for the summer months.
Those of the Plattsmouth people who
have been out on auto tours, and
there are a great many here, realize
that this is one of the ruo-st import
ant matters that a city can under
take to give it a gcod impression with
those who travel through it. The
most frequently sugyMsted location
for the tourist park Jr. that of the
city lots on Washington avenue,
which are close to the main section
of the city and adjacent to the paved
streets so as to make it very easy
to reach." - -
The time for getting this park
ready is very short and the matter
should be pushed through if we are
to have a park here thi3 season.

STUART QUITS
STATE EMPLOY
UNDER FIRE
Accused Engineer Says He Can't
Prove His Defense Expense
Account is Correct.
Frank M. Staurt, an engineer in
the employ of the state highway de
rartment, handed in his resignation
Thursday morning. Secretary John
son, his chief, had given him four
days in which to produce proof of
the accuracy of his expense account
of $15 while working in Richardson
sounty.. He employed Carl Schild
neck, Relf's assistant, to take him
about the county for parts of three
days in an auto. He had Schildneck
sign a receipt In blank for his ser
vices, which later he filled in for
$15. He had paid Schildneck some
time later $5 for his services. He in
sisted that the remainder was made
up of oil and gas gas paid for. but
Relf fa Id that it was his car and that
he paid for these items of cost.
In a statement submitted to the
board of inquiry Thursday Staurt
Eaid that during the parts of three
days they were out he paid for the
driver's meals and did buy gas and
oil. He said he made these payments
in the driver's presence, but that if
he denies this he has no other proof
to offer. As Schildneck has since been
appointed to Relf's place he thinks it
hopeless to expect him to confirm his
