Although the Ford Motor company
has been increasing the output of
Fordsons daily since the first of the
year, retail sales have maintained
even a greater advance.
April requirements necessitate the
building of four hundred Fordsons
a day, and production is being fur

This is the Ford company's largest
output since 1919. and it is expected
that production will have'broken all
previous records before the end of
the month.
The increased buying of Fordsons
indicates that the farmer's position

dorsement of the Fordson price-cut,
which created considerable comment
throughout the country.
Besides the Fordsons being sold
for farm use, many are being sold in
the cities as power units for hauling,
excavating, grading and other kinds

Frank Urban, Former Resident of
This City, Suffers Mental
Trouble Front Service. .
From FriftaVa Daily.
One of those who have paid the
price of war in a terrible manner is
Frank Urban who was a resident of
Plattsmouth in 1916-17. and who is
now in the hospital at Prague. Cze-cho-Slavakia.
Mr. Urban was a cap
tain in the Czech army that served
with the allied troops in the world
war and was in a number of the
most vital drives of the war and dur
ing this time was wounded and suf
fered shell shock that has impaired
his health since. He was returned
to the hospital at Prague at the close
of the war and while he has grown
somewhat stronger in body, his mind
has failed to rally from the extreme
nervous shock of the service at the
front and he stead'iy has grown
worse. It is thought that the young
man will never fully regain his men
tal faculties as the result of the ex
periences through which he passed.
The government of the new re
public of Czecho-Slavakia has made
every effort to care for their, wound
ed and skk service nen and they

forts to those of the American Le

Washington avenue in readiness so
that the Dominion" Carnival Com
pany can hold their entertainment
there on the week of May 8th and
that the city can have a suitable
place for a tourist camp and recre
ation spot later in the season when
the shows have departed. The busi
ness men recognize the good work
of the Legion members in their ef
forts to help give the city a park
that will be practical for the uses
of 'a tourist park and are putting
their shoulder to the wheel in great
shape to help put the job over in
proper shape.
This shows the proper spirit or
community co-operation and the de
sire to assist in any public movement
and one that can well be emulated
by all of the residents of the city.
While Saturday is a rather hard
day to get at this line of work the
business men will do their part and

Last evening Sheriff C. D. Quin
ton was called out to the vicinity of
Murdock ty a message announcing
that a man named William Irving
was creating a disturbance at the
home of William Nelson, where he
has been making his home and fo
the sheriff to get to the 5cene of ac

to the call the sheriff arrived on the
K-ene of action and quelled the near
riot and brought the gentleman in
I question on into this city to rest up
at the count- bastile until his case
could be heard. From the reports
from the scene it seems that Mr. Irv
infi had become filled with the dis
tilled spirit of Nebraska fertile corn
or some other equally inflamable li
quid that caused him to lose his us
ual spirit of self possession and there
upon he iad indulged in a general
argument that culminated in a large
part of the family chinaware being
broken up and a general rough
house. The residents of Murdock
were notified of the matter and a
number hastened to the scene but
were unable to successfully pour oil
on the troubled waters, but the sher
iff in his usual diplomatic manne:
succeeded in getting the insurrection
under control and brought the al
leged cause of the trouble on into
our peaceful city. It was first thot
that the man was taken suddenly
insane but later it was found that
it was merely a liquid outbreak and
would subside as the effects of the
rtimulant wore off. However, it cre
ated considerable stir in the vicinity
