Last evening the employes of the

very delightful outing along the
banks of the Missouri river in the
vicinity of the Burlington bridge and
which certainly was enjoyed after

Fourth More Litters in State Than
Last Spring, and a Fifth More
Pigs Saved From Each.
The number of litters of spring
pigs in Nebraska is 26.5 per cent
greater and the number of pigs sav
ed twenty-one per cent greater than
last spring according to the results
of the pig survey announced "Wed
nesday by A. 7. Anderson, Nebras
ka agriculture statistician. The av
erage number saved per litter was
6.2 pigs as compared to 5.4 a year
ago. The number of sows bred for
fall litter is 59 per cent greater.
The corn belt states show an in
crease of 14.5 per cent of spring pigs
saved, and a 22.8 per cent increase
in litters. The average number of
pigs saved per litter was 7 per cent
less than last year, or 5.66 pigs per
litter compared to 6.1 pigs last
spring. The number of sows bred for
fall litters is 49.3 per cent greater
than last year in the corn belt states.
The number of pigs saved in east
ern states included in this survey
was 97.3 per cent and in southern
states 100.3 per cent as compared to
last year. The number of sows bred
for fall litters is 23.5 per cent and
27 per cent greater respectively.
If farmers carry out their express
ed intentions regarding fall farrow
ing9 the total number of spring and
fall litters for the year will be 28
percent greater than last year. Last,
year the number of fall farrowings
represented 28 per cent of the total
farrowings for the year while this
year they wil probably represent 35
per cent.
Stocks of pork products other than
lard in storage on May 1 are 33 per

For a Time Need System of
Parking to Save Space.
The work of installing the new
sewer and the repaving of Main
street is on in full swing at the pres
ent time and as the result the space
on the street for parking cars is lim
ited and brings to the forefront the
need of a system that will conserve
all the space possible and therefore
when parking cars be sure to take
up as little room as possible.
With each car driver parking
close to the next car there can be a
great deal of space saved that i3 now
alowed to be wasted and which will
be very badly needed in the next few
months as the street work is being
carried out.
Chief of Police Barclay will do all
possible to aid in the work of mak
ing as much use of the amount of
space allowed for narkintr as dos-
8ible and with the co-operation of
the citizens who drive cars, it is
hoped to be able to conserve space
for the cars that are desired to park
on Main street.

Farewell to Members Who Have At
tained Age of Twenty-One and
Initiation Cover Meeting.
From Thursdays Dally.
Last evening Cass Chapter, Order
of De Molay, held a very interest
ing session at their lodge rooms and
at which time they conferred the
work of the order in both the init
iatory and De Molay degrees and as
; well held a special convocation in
honor of the members of the chap
ter who have passed the twenty-one
year limit of the order and who now
close their activities as members of
the order.
There were a large number of the
members of the Masonic fraternity
in attendance at the meeting and en
joyed to the utmost the occasion and
the manner in which the boys put
on the degree work of the order.
Judge James T. Begley and Elmer
Hallstrom of Avoca, addressed the
members of the order very fittingly.
The special convocation was given
over to the honoring of the mem-
I bers having reached the age of twen
ty-one years and who automatically
cease to be members of the order.
The two past master councilors,
Harley F. Cecil and Raymond C.

Johnny Wolff Sells Stndebakers as a
Sideline and Makes Practice
of Boosting the Town.
One of the quiet but effective
boosters of the town is our good
friend and neighbor, Johnny Wolff,
who seems to make it his principal
business and only sells Studebakers
as a sideline occupation.
This year, as well as on numerous
past occasions, Johnny is giving a lot
of his time to looking after the af
fairs of the baseball team and in
this is proving most successful.
When seats to the Legion's athletic
show were placed on sale, Wolff pur
chased outright a block of 23 seats,
paying for them out of his own pock
et, knowing full well that a rain
might prevent those he was counting
on using them, and thus leave him
"in the hole." At the Legion's show
last September, Johnny purchased a
similar block of fifteen seats.
Not only in matters like this, but
when it comes to using one of his
cars or trucks, the Legion's appeal
has always met woith ready response
on the part of Mr. Wolff.
A few days ago when someone
was quibbling about what might hap
pen if it rained the night of the
show, Johnny countered by inform
ing the parties no individual was re
ceiving any of the profits, and that
a few years later when, the Legion
erects a fine community building
with the money it is able to make,
they wouldn't miss the 2 if they
never got to see the show at all.

sobriquet we hooked onto him at the
beginning of this article a quiet.
but effective booster.

Will Do Away with Unsightly Creek
Bed in Vicinity of New Tourist
Park and Prevent Flood.
The proposal of the city council to
go ahead with the work cf extending
the Washington avenue sewer for
some 500 feet from the present
mouth of the sewer entrance near
the O. K. garage is a move that will
be of lasting benefit to the city and
especially that section which lies in
the immediate vicinity of . the old
creek bed.
In making the extension the lines
will be straightened out so that the
sewer will not have to follow tho
winding course of the creek and
thereby make it easier to convey the
flow of the water.
The farther the mouth of the sew
er is placed away from the main por
tion of the city, the less daneer
there is of serious overflows, except
in extraordinary cases.
It will collect the flood waters
nearer their source and make an ap
preciable difference in the volume of
water that frequently overflows over
the street in time of very heavy rain
fall. Not only should the work of mak
ing the present extension be made,
but a portion should be completed
each year until the old creek is en
tirely eliminated from that section
of the city. The work is not only
a matter of safety to the main por
tion of the city but one that will
make the property in the vicinity of
the sewer much more valuable in
every way.

Ltgsch, the Tailor, Last Eve
ning and Dees Damage.
From Friday's Dally.
A few minutes after 6 o'clock last
evening fire broke out in the clean
ing and tailoring shop of Fred
Lugsch on the north side of Main
street between 4th and 5th street
and in a very few minutes did a great
deal of damage to the building and
the contents. Mr. Lugsch had cross
ed the street to the Soennichsen
store to make some purchases and as
he was returning to the shop he was
startled to see a gust of smoke sweep
out of the doorway of his place of
business and running to the tailor
shop found the rear room a sheet of
liame. Fire extinguishers were pro
cured and an attempt made to check
the fire but without success and by
this time the fire wa3 gaining head
way when the call for the fire de
partment was put in. The Fire de
partment responded to the call and
soou had the fire well under control
but not until it had done much dam
age. The fire was started by a gas heat
er used in the cleaning and drying
of clothes and the heater was so lo
cated that in a few minutes after
the first start of the fire the blaze
tpread very rapidly.
Mr. Lugsch had the greater part
of the suits and dresses he was clean
ing and had on hand in a case in the
front portion of the establishment
and these were not damaged greatly
side from water and in a few in
stances being scorched and us soon
as possible they were removed from
he shop. They suffered some from
the effects of the smoke that was
quite dense in the building.
The smoke as well as the water
raused some little damage in the
barber shop of Percy Dunn, adjoin
ing the tailor shop and the work of
redecorating that has just recently
been completed by Mr. Dunn will
have to be fixed over as the result
of the fire.
Mr. Lugsch was well protected by
insurance on his machinery as well
ns on the clothing that he had on
hand and the building, which is own
ed by Mrs. V. V. Leonard, is also
protected against the loss by fire. It
will require some little amount to
put the building back in shape.
Fred G. Mclssacs Brings Action
Against 3p.nk of Commerce
for Sum of $1, 85.00.
from Friday's Dally
This! morning in the office of the
clerk of the district court was filed
an action by Fred Mclsacs, non-resident
plaintiff, by his attorney, Wm.
A. Robertson, claiming the sum of
S1.2S5.00 from the Bank of Com
merce for funds of the plaintiff with
held by the defendant bank.
The petition of the plaintiff states
that on or about the 8th day of June,
1917, the plaintiff commenced a
checking account with the defendant
bank and that this continued thru
the years 1918 and 1919. and ag
gregated something like $5,000 in
that period of time.
In the year 1917 the plaintiff en
tered the military service of the
United States and continued in ser
vice until June, 1919, when he re
turned home and found that there
was the sum of $1,285.00 still to
his in the Bank of Commerce
and that when he attempted to check
on this amount in the custody of
the bank, the checks were refused
and not paid by the bank, he then
learned, it is stated, that there had
been sums unlawfully charged
against his account in the bank in
the amount of 11.000, $200 and $85.
which had not been made by the
plaintiff. Mr. Mclssacs. The amount
of the deposits still remain in the
custody of the defendant bank and,
Mr. Mclssacs, through his attorney,
Mr. Robertson, asks the sum of $1,
285.00, together with interest at 7
percent from June, 1919. be award
ed him by the court against the de
fendant bank.

The rain last night caused the
softening of the bank along the new
sewer trench near the Perkins ho
tel and as the result two of the Iron
pillars supporting the large balcony
in front of the hotel, were allowed

a great deal of foresight, bad a false
work and support of timbers placed
under the balcony a few days aeo

not fall but had it not been for this
quite a serious accident might have
' occurred.

Four Passengers and Holds
Them for Quinton.

Yesterday afternoon State Sheriff
Gus Hyers was spinning homeward
to Lincoln from Omaha, and when
near Greenwood he passed a Buick
car by the roadside and seeing that
the buzz wagon was apparently out
of commission he stopped to see what
was wrong and incidently disclosed
some fifteen gallons of the well
known and very popular beverage,
"hooch," which was evidently head
ed for the state metsopolis.
The state sheriff found four occu
pants of the car, who gave their
names as Kent McLead, S. E. Russell,
Lois Caples and Verna Kelly, all of
whom claimed Omaha as their home
with the exception of the last lady,
who was from old Kentucky, and all
but Miss Kelly gave their residence
as the Hotel Millard in the metropo
lis. Miss Caples stated that her pro
fession was that of chorus girl and
all of the party were greatly shocked
to learn that the car contained booze.
Russell stated to the state sheriff
that he was the only one in the party
responsible for the booze and was In
full possession of it, but declined to
give the name of the party to whom
it was consigned when captured. He
also stated that the car belonged to
him but had an indebtedness of
$200 on it.
Mr. Russell stated to Sheriff Hyers,
"I haven't taken a drink for two
years, and what is more I wouldn't
take one for $100."
Sheriff C. D. Quinton departed this
morning for Greenwood, where he

auditorium of the public library and
was one of the most pleasing enter
tainments of its kind that has been
given here this season, and enjoyed
by a very large audience.
The young people who gave the
recitations were excellent in their
work and showed thought and care
in the preparation of tnoir subjects
and in the manner in which they
were delivered. In this portion of
the program, Alice Mason, Elizabeth
Wiles, Alice Crabill, Hf lene Perry.
Nina Hollowell, Edith Quinton and
