SCHOOL HAS CLOS
Large Number Attend the Very Clev
er and Pleasing Program Given
by the Little Folks.
Last evening was held the first of
the series of two entertainments that
mark the closing exercises of the St.
John's Catholic sehcol, and the very
entertaining program given reflects
the greatest credit on the little folks
taking part as well as the Ursuline
Sisters, who conduct the school and
have had the instruction of the
young people in charge. The program
was given with much cleverness on
the part cf tho?e participating and
despite the inconvenience in the
lighting effects the two operettas
were very enjoyable.
The program opened with a chorus
cf the young folks of the school in
which their voices mingled in a fit
ting opening of the evening's enter
tainment and was followed by the
Daisy drill by the younger girls of
the school and which Was very pretty
and showed the skillful training that
had been given the little folks.
The first of the two operettas
given was that of "The Golden Slip
per," In which the girls of the school
participated. Each character was
well taken and the costumes that had
been largely prepared by the Sisters
were vari-colorexl and artistic in the
extreme. The leading roles in the
operetta were taken by Marie Fogar

WILL ATTEND CAMP
Frm Saturday's Laliy.
Wilbur Olson, who last year at
tended the citizens training camp at
Fort Snelling, Minnesota, is desirious
of getting in the camp this year that
will be held at Fort Des Moines, la.,
and accordingly he is searching for
some other Platsmouth young man
who desires to take up the training.
There will be plenty of them the
later part of July just before the
camp opens, but they cannot be se
cured to sign up application now and
then it will be too late.
The opportunity of registering for
the camp has been extended until
June 20th, and those who desire to
attend should get their applications
on file before that time.
Further information relative to the

This morning there was filed in
the district court an action that is
the outgrowth of the clays when the
American republic was in arms
against the Central powers and when
the people at home were battling to
sustain the far-flung battle line of
the American boys in the fields of
France, and when the American dol
lars were flowing to aid the men of
America in their fight.
The action is brought by C. Law
rence Stull against John F. Wehr
bein, Joseph Johnson, Ralph Ilay
nie, William Rummell, Dr. O. San
din and the Plattsmouth State bank,
In the petition of the plaintiff
that was prepared by his attorney,
I. J. Dunn, of Omaha, it is alleged
that on June 9, 191S, the defend
ants with the exception of the de
fendant bank, together with a mob
of 100 to 200 persons visited the
Stull farm and demanded of Mr.
Stull that he contribute the sum
of $4,000 to the government in the
way or bonds and a check to tne
American Red Cross, there being
quotas assigned to all residents of
the county at that time and during
the other war work drives. The
plaintiff states in his petition that he
told the parties that he had no sum
like $4,000 and was informed . that
he had $2,S00 on deposit in one of
the Plattsmouth banks and they de
manded that he make the checks out
for this amount and the members of
the party, some of whom were arm
ed, with revolvers and ropes, wait
ed until the checks could be verified
by the bank where the funds were
on deposit. He made two checks, one
for J1.S00 and one for $1,000 made
payable to the American Red Cross,
and a copy of which is attached to
the petition and which was deposit
ed to the Plattsmouth State bank,
with the other funds of the Red
Cross, that was being used in war
The plaintiff asks that judgment
in the amount of $1,000 be given
him by the court for the recovery of
the sura forcibly donated to the Red
Cross for their work in the war.
The incident will be recalled by a
great many of the residents of the
city who were here during this dark
period of the World war. This is the
first action of this kind brought to
recover sums , that were contributed
under protest to the war work wel
fare organizations or the government
in this section.

SOUGHT FOR, RE

as Many as Six Places at One
and the Same Time.
Every stranger who makes his ap
pearance in this section of Nebraska
is being closely watched the last
week since the revealing of the story
of Fred Brown, the ex-convict and
degenerate of Omaha has thrown a
great scare into the larger part of the
nhabitants of this state.
From points as far west as Hold-
rege and east to Pacific Junction
there have been reports that Brown
had been seen lurking around and
these have kept the authorities hust
ling to run down, each clue proving

Smith, who is employed by the Platts

when the northbound freight pulled
in and a stranger alighted in a hurry
and coming over to Mr. Smith asked
how he could get on into Omaha and
was informed that there was always
a chance to get a ride in a car going
north and the man had stopped the
first car going to Omaha and secured
a ride on into the city. The man
answered the description of Brown
to a great extent.
Another report Thursday was that
a stranger who in some ways answer
ed the description of the much want
ed convict, had been seen to cross
the Platte river wagon bridge headed
Yesterday afternoon Chief of Po
lice Barclay received a message that
a car had been stolen near Ft. Crook
and that it was thought that it
might have been taken by Brown.
According to the report the car was
headed toward Plattsmouth. Almost
instantly a large number of the
citizens hurried by car to the Platte
river to head off the fugitive if he
appeared, but there was apparently
nothing to the report, or at least the
much wanted man did not put in his
appearance and the convoy of man
hunters returned empty handed.
GREENWOOD ; THE
YEARS AS PRIEST
The Rev. Wilbur Scranton Leete,
Rector of St. Luke's Church,
to Observe Anniversary.
On Monday the Rev. Wilbur Scran-,
ton Leete, rector of St. Luke's Epis
copal church of this city, will ob
serve the twenty-fifth anniversary
of his ordination into the priest
hood of the church. To assist in the
observance of the day in a fitting
manner a, large number of the Ne
braska clergy will be present to en
joy the day with the rector of St.
Luke's and also to conduct the ser
vices at the church Monday morning.
Father Leete was ordained aj a
minister of the church on June 7,
1897, at Baltimore, Maryland, by
Rt. Rev. William Parriett, bishop
of Maryland, who served for the
bishop of Rhode Island, who was un
able to be present. On his ordina
tion Father Leete came west and
was assigned a parish at Galena,
Kansas, where he remained for some
time and later was transferred to
the state of Iowa where he had a
number of charges and from Lyons,
Iowa, eight years ago, he came to
Plattsmouth to take over the Sr..
Luke's parish, which had been made
vacant by the resignation of the Rev.
Allen G. Wilson. He has since served
here and has by his efforts made a
great headway with the work of the
church, in increasing the growth of
the parish as well as in the advance
ment of the teachings of the church.
To spend the day with Father
Leete on Monday, the Rev. Lloyd
Holdsapple, St. Barnabas church,
Omaha; Rev. Stanley Jones, St.
Paul's, Omaha; Rev. Blanning, Good
Shepherd, Omaha; Rev. Gallagher,
St. Andrews, Omaha: Rev. John Al
bert Williams, St. Philips, Omaha;
Rev. Noble, St. Mary's, Blair, will
be here and conduct special services
at the church which will include
the celebration of Holy Eucharist at
8:30 a. ra. and at which Father
Holdsapple of Omaha will preside at
the organ while the other priests
will conduct the services and Father
Holdsapple give a short sermon.

SHOWER FOR BRIDE
AVIATOR TO LOSE COMMISSION,
Washington, June 2. The flight
of Herbert J. Fahy, a commercial
aviator, over the Lincoln memorial
here during Tuesday's ceremonies, is
to cost him his reserve commission
as second lieutenant In the army
Secretary Weeks announced today
that cancellation of Fahy's commis
sion would be ordered formally to
morrow on the grounds of miscon
duct involving disrespect for the
president ' of the United States, in
terference with the proper observ
ance of a public ceremony, and the
endangering of life. No court- mar
tial was necessary, it was explained.
Fahy's flight, which drowned out
part of the address of President W.
G. Harding, was said at the war de
partment to have been made in the
face of three requests by army of
ficers that he should not take the
air during the ceremonies.
