Day Brings
Events cf Eleven Years Ago Recalled
to Former Service Men and
Residents of City.
From Monday's Dally
Eleven years aero today the great
est of all wars drew to the close when
tne representatives of the Allied
armies and the delegates from the
new German republic signed the
armistic term that was to bring to
the close the actual fighting and
make way for the formal peace ne
gotiations. The day is one that is recalled in
this country with the scenes of re
joicing at the close of the conflict
and the cities filled with hundreds
of thousands of men, women and
children in a wild unrestrained burst
of enthsuiasm made the day one of
celebration and in which all activ
ities were ceased for the day and all
were permitted to join in the festiv
ities. In this city the festivities con
tinued from early in the morning
until late at night, with all manner
of noise producing Instruments being
used, the old fire bell, a relic of the
past, being stationed at the Sixth
street intersection and which was
sounded all day long, while Dr. O.
Sandin and his drum added to the
general noise producing rejoicing.
Many of our residents were mem
bers of the army and navy and can
recall vividly the events of Novem
ber 11. 1918. and while there was
not the delirious rejoicing at the
front as in the cents of population,
the soldiers could appreciate the fact
that there was no more war and it
was a sudden shock to the veterans of
many battles to have the deep silence
of the armistice come after the eight
een months of bombardment and
struggle that the American troops on
the battle front had undergone.
Many of the local veterans who
were in the 4th and -42nd divisions
were at the front with their head
quarters at St. Dizer while those in
the S9th were in the front near the
historic city of Sedan where the
French empire fell in 1871 and which
city had been taken by the Amer
icans in 1918 but for the sentimental
thought of the occasion the French
troops were allowed to make the first
entry into that city. Other local vet
erans in France were at the LeMans
concentration area or at Castres in
south France. Two of our local vet
erans, Henry Soennichsen and Joe
Capwell observed the day at the
Hawaiian islands and the Philip
pines as they were stationed at these
A great many of the former gobs
'n this 'locality were in the American
battle fleet and observed the day in
the chill of the north Atlantic and
the North sea as they with the Brit
ish fleet conducted the watch on the
bottled up German fleet.
However, it was a great war and
a greater peace, and which everyone
hopes will serve as a lasting lesson
that wars must cease.
The many friends here of the W.
F. Huneke family, former residents
of this city,, will be interested in
learning of the marriage of Robert
G. Huneke. the eldest son of the fam
ily, which occurred on October 27th
at Burlington, Iowa, where the fam
ily have made their home for a num
ber of years. Mr. Huneke and Miss
Vera Eunice Paulus were married
on October 27th and are now at home
::t Burlington to their many friends.
The bride is a daughter of Mr. and
Mrs. John Paulus, well known resi
dents of the Iowa city. The groom
is well known here where he was
just entering his high school work
when leaving this city and was a
young man well liked and highly
esteemed by the many friends here
and who learn of his new happiness
with the greatest of pleasure.
That is Just what W. H. Wehrbein
Is doing, a Journal man visited his
home a short time since and found
him industriously working at a cat
tle and hay barn combined, with the
sheds for the cattle surrounding three
sides of the storage apartment for
hay. With plenty of light, good
space for the cattle and plenty of
good wholesome water and feed, he
will be excellently equipped for the
caring of the cattle which he yearly
feeds for the market.

home of Earl C. Wiles a few miles
from Weeping Water where he had
some seven wagons and that many
people picking the five hundred acre
crop of corn which he raised during
the past summer. He has just filled
the cribs, which held thirty hundred
bushels, which he has shelled and
marketed, and at the end of last
week had some fifteen hundred
bushels in the crib again.
The corn is yielding a very gener
ous crop, and is running about forty-
five tushels to the acre, and the
workmen are hustling every day pos
sible to get the crop harvested be
fore the coming of cold and snowy
weather. Earl is a hustler and sure
makes a success in growing corn.

Much Scoring
Marks Platter
Peru Prep Game
Bob Kittens Win by Score of 31 to
12 as They Intercept Many
Passes of the Locals
From Tuesday's Dally
Hot Zickety, Whoopee, Siz Bang
and other exclamations of enthusiasm
and delight, the Plattsmouth high
school team yesterday afternoon at
Peru, sook off the jinx "that has
kept thein from scoring this season
and wnile they lost the battle by
the score of 31 to 12, the Platter
rooters felt well repaid in attend
ing the game by seeing the locals
cross the Peru line twice.
The Platters battled to the Peru
twenty yard line from where Chet
Wiles, f.eet footed local back, skirted
around the ends for the necessary
yardage and Plattsmouth had a tally
to their credit.
The second of the Plattsmouth
scores came when Hershel Dew, the
local ace. intercepted one of the
passes of the Bob Kittens and raced
down the field for thirty-five yards
and a touchdown.
The Bobkittens were not a heavy
but a fast and shifty team and their
touchdowns were largely the result
of being able to intercept the passes
of the Platters to register, one touch
down being the result of the straight
line plunges to make the neccsaiy

Local Athletic
Team Loses to
Vintcn Athletics
Game at Western League Park at
Omaha Results in Score of 12
to 0 for Vintons
From Monday's Dally
The Plattsmouth Athletic foot
ball team yesterday had their second
meeting of the year with the Vinton
Athletics of Omaha, the battle being
staged at the Western League park
n the city up the river. I
The score of the struggle Sunday
was 12 to 0, reversing the former
result in this city two weeks ago
when the Vintons tasted defeat by
the score of 6 to 0.
In the game Sunday both teams
played a good game and the result
was partially the result of a costly
mishap on the part of the locals in
recovering a kickoff
The first score of the vintons came
in the second quarter when a pass
to Akromis was made good for six
points and the second came when
the Vintons kicked to the Platts
mouth Athletics and Flowers of the
Vintons was able to recover the
loose punt and scampered over for
another touchdown.
The line work of the Plattsmouth
team was effective but they were un
able to successfully develop an of
fensive and remained at the cipher
end of the score.
The Vintons have a good team
as was shown here in the previous
game and with added strength they
were a stiff proposition for any team
to contend with.

of Winter Season
From Wednesday's Dally
'Sweeping down from the north

through the night and today came
the first snowfall of the season and
one that covered all sections of Ne
braska and the greater part of Iowa

The snowfall at the Burlington
station this morning stood at six
Inches as the level fall.
The rain followed by the snow
has checked all outdoor work in this
section and the farmers who were
etting a good start on their corn
shucking were unable to get ut into
the fields to work and the shuckers
who had anticipated several weeks
of sroori weather and makin? n p-rnr1
sized inroad on the corn crop were
compelled to loaf as the result of
the storm.
The storm has also played havoc
with the road projects in this sec
tion where the state is endeavoring
to get the paving on highway No. 75
completed ana reaiiy ror travel as
many grading jobs were unable to
be handled and the remaining sec
tions of the paving that it had hoped
to have laid were found impossible
to be handled under the effects of
the rain and snow.
Roads have been placed in as bad
or worse condition than two weeks
ago as the result of the rain and
snow and auto travel was not in
dulged in by anyone unless it was
necessary as a trip over the mud
roads and partially graveled high

city schools. Miss Shawhan gave the
members of Rotary the very delight
ful description of a far off country
China but where even there Ro
tary International is felt. Miss Shaw-
han has spent some five years in
teaching in China and this has given
her the unusual opportunity of an
intimate view of the Chinese peo
ple, their customs and of their daily
lives. The American educators that
have labored in China have awak
ened the desire for greater educa

numbers coming to the United States
for college work, many of these re
turned students being in the new
China movements that is bringing
this nation out of the age old cus
toms and ideals and placing them in
the line of western efficiency.
The address of this talented teach
er was much enjoyed and the mem
bers of the club felt very grateful
to this talented lady for her graphic
and interesting story of the China
that she has known.
