SAYS OF HER AS AN ACCOUNTANT.
The G. V. Marsh Auditing Co. of Lincoln, Nebr., has the following
to say of Miss Gering's system of book-keeping, in their report to the
County Commissioners May 9, 1 922 : "We have made a survey of
the records being kept in the County Treasurer's office and found
them to be in unusually good form; in fact we have never examined
a Treasurer's office in which the records have been as well kept as
they are in Cass county.'

The fight game in Plattsmouth
seemed to be very popular judging
from the 650 fight fans that assem
bled at the Movie Garden last night
to attend the second boxing bill that
the local American Legion post has
staged in this city and three fast and
snappy boxing events marked the
opening of the entertainment and
while the events did not go the lim
it, the losers in all of the events were
given the limit of punishment by
the victors and heard the birds sing
ing in the senn-windup and the main
The opening event, the six-round
bout between Frank Blotzer and Joe
Smetana, was perhaps the greatest
attraction for the fight fans as they
had been looking forward for weeks
to the mixing of thes two local boys
and a real gory battle was the re
sult until Referee Jack Fitzgerald of
Omaha stopped the affray in the sec
ond round arid awarded the well
earned honors to Joe Smetana, the
scrapping ex-sailor. In the opening
round Blotzer mixed freely and car
ried the fight to Smetana, who was
on the defensive all thru the open
ing of the round and merely covered
for his defense. Smetana then open
ed up with a series of blows to Blot
zer's body and face that checked his
speed and when the round ended
Frank was showing the effects of the
strenuous efforts he had put forth to
end the contest in the opener. In the
second round the onslaught of Sme
tana was terrific and the face of
Blotzer was bleeding profusely and
he was apparently dazed as a series
of stiff punches sent him reeling to
the floor and after a struggle he re
gained his feet only to fall beneath
the blows of the former sailor and
as the fight was clearly going to the
husky gob. Referee Fitzgerald clos
ed the bout with Blotzer dazed and
all in and bleeding' profusely. Blot
zer suffered perhaps more seriously
than anyone In the card, as he had
a number of teeth knocked loose as
Well as his lip and eye split and his
right wrist and hand badly sprain
ed. The second bou; between George
Schmader, the clever young boxer of
Louisville, and "Cyclone" Woolsey
of Nebraska City, .was one of the
popular features of the evening and
in this event George won the appro
bation of the large crowd by his
clever and sportsmanlike handling
of his opponent and both men gave
a clean and fast exhibition of fight
ing. Woolsey, to keep up wiih his
nickname, started out fast and his
longer reach and "height gave him
some little advantage until the blows
of Schmader found their mark and
at the close of the opening round
Woolsey was clearly showed up by
tho effects of the blows on his face.
The Nebraska City boxer placed sev
eral blows to the face of Schmader
and in turn received some nasty ones
to the map that served to open the
way to hi3 defeat. As the gong sound
ed in the second George proceeded
to force the fighting and the longer
reach of "Cyclone" was useless In
the rain of blows that fell on him
from the gloves of Louisville's husky
comer and he was forced to the ropes
several times. The end came when
Schmader planted a stiff one to the
jaw artd the "Cyclone" subsided with
a crash to the mat 'for the. count.
The main event was also short and
sweet with Andy Schmader taking
an easy win from Jack McCarthy of
Portland, Ore. McCarthy was heavi
er and larger than the Louisville
man, and in the opening round gave
Andy several hard blows that were
visible in their effects but which
did not check the ex-navy champ,
who proceeded to cary the fight to
his' opponent and in a few seconds
after the battle was on it was ap
parent that the Portland man was
not the equal in any way of the
clever local man. Schmader in the
second round knocked McCarthy to
the ropes and twice the husky Ore
gonian was down for the count of
eight but was able to rally and con
tinue the fight but against increas
ing odds and Andy with a stiff blow
to the body and jaw sent his oppo
nent to the mat for the victory.
While the boxing events were made
short the wrestling match between
Frank Schmader of this city, and
Fred Moormeier of Courtland, Ne
braska, was carried out to the limit
and the event went to three falls,
Moormeier winning the first and
Schmader the second and third. Ed
Kelly, the local sporting expert, was
on the job as referee and did it to
the satisfaction of everyone.
The opening fall was won by
Moormeier in eighteen minutes and
40 seconds, when with a toe hold
he planted the shoulders of Schma
der to the mat. In the second fall
Schmader required only ten minutes
with a toe hold to bring Moormeier
to a finish, and during this as well
as the opening part of the match
the wrestlers showed their skill and
experience in getting away from the
holds that they were caught In. The
last fall occupied ten minutes and
once more the hold that Gotch made
famous was employed when Moor
meier was forced to the mat.
The Legion committee in charge
of the event has worked hard to give
the Plattsmouth people a real ath
letic event and everyone seemed well
pleased with the bill' offered and at
the price charged the attractions
were the best that could be secured.
The work of Jacdc Fitzgerald as ref- j
eree was also a big hit with the au
dience. Among the Omaha sporting fra
ternity to attend the entertainment
were Jack Lewis, manager of Andy
Schmader; Billy Rolff, one of Lewis'
string of lighters; Morrie Schlaiffer,
Joe llerrick. Billy Uvick and Jack
Curley. State Boxing Commissioner
Lum Doyle of Lincoln was also at
the match to look over the string of
fighters and the wrestling match and
was welt pleased with the manner
in which the event was carried out
10 add to the entertainment of
the crowil the Marshall orchestra
furnished a number of selections
during the intermissions and preced
ing the opening of the boxing bill.

Chicago, June 27. A strike of the
400,000 railway shopmen of the
country wil be called for July 1, un
less the railroads agree to stay the
ICO, 000, 000 wage cut due the shop
workers cm that date and to restore
certain working conditions formerly
in effect, it was made known tonight
through a telegram from B. M. Jew
ell, head of the shop crafts, to the
Association of Railway Executives.
Decision to call a strike came late
today after lengthy discussion by
the executive committee of the six
shop craft3 unions, based on the
strike vote of the men thus far re
ceived. The committee left but one loop
hole to avoid the strike. If the rail
heads arrange an immediate confer
ence, agreeing meanwhile to contin
ue present wages, restore working
rules modified by the railroad labor
board, and discontinue farming out
railroad work a walkout can be
averted, the telegram said. Other
wise "a sanction of withdrawal from
employment on July 1, 1922, as vot
ed by the employes, will be unavoid
able." No Vote Given
. The 2,500-word telegram, address
ed to T. DeWitt Cuyler, chairman
of the Association of Railway Exec
utives, threw no light on the actual
strike vote beyond saying it was an
Although the actual call for the
walkout was made dependent on the
executives' reply to President Jew
ell's ultimatum, little expectation
was expressed in railroad circles to
night that the executives would
agree to such sweeping demands as
those made by the unions and labor
leaders said that a strike seemed to
