Senior Class Visits Omaha
A part of the education gathered
in our present day school system is
based on seeing and in accordance
with the prevailing custom, the Sen
ior class of the Murdock schools had
their so-called "Sneak Day" sight
seeing trip last veek, going to Om
aha, where they were able to visit

eron to the group.

report a most pleasant time.
To Observe Memorial Day
Arrangements were made on last
Monday, at a meeting held at Wa
bash, for the observance of Memor
ial day at the cemetery that is used
jointly by the towns of Wabash and
Murdock. Committees have been ap
pointed to look after arranging for
music, decorating the graves and the
securing of a speaker. Lacey Mc
Donald i3 in charge of Murdock's part
cf the arrangements and Miss Myrtle
Wood is acting in like capacity for
the Wabash community. The pro
gram will be held Sunday afternoon,
May 2Sth, at 2:00 o'clock.
The Murdock band, under direc
tion of Peter Gradoville, of Platts
mouth, will provide music and the
Elmwood American Legion post will
furnish its uniformed firing squad
in a salute to the deceased veter
ans buried there.
Held Enthusiastic Meeting
The advertised Recreational meet
ing which was looked forward to
with interest by local parties dosir
ious of instituting a more varied rec
reational program here, was held
last week as scheduled, hut it was
necessary to use some local talent
for entertainment to take the place
of those from Plattsmouth unable to
come. The numbers were well re
ceived. Mr. Sundstrom, the county
Recreational director, had also in
tended to bring a speaker from the
county Feat, and failing so to do, he
spoke himself on the advantages of
the Recreational program as it is
set up by the Federal government
and is being practiced in many Ne
braska towns, both large and small.
Murdock is anxious to avail it
self of more of this service, having
at the present time only the band
SCHOOL TEACHER SOLOS
AFTER 9 HOURS OF STUDY
NORFOLK. Neb. (UP) The
Sharp families of this section are
Mae E. Sharp, Meadow Grove
school teacher, made her first olo
airplane flight after nine hours of
instruction. Her younger siter. Eve
lyn, also is taking instructions.
The girls are cousins of Evelyn
Sharp, of Ord. Neb., well-known Ne
Dockage facilities maXt Platts
mouth an ideal factory site. Wel
come and a splendid oDDortunlty
to expand should be an induce
ment to those contemplating a
chanqe in location from the more
thickly populated centers and
flood areas of the east.
"William Bourke was in Wabash to
complete the listing of the property
in Elmwood precinct, having only a
few schedules left to complete his
year's work as county assessor.
A new firm of well workers has
been developed recently in the per
sonages of Schmidt and Stanley, who
were putting the well at the home
of Louis Schmidt in good condition
and sinking it a little deeper. The
matter of securing sufficeient water
is one that faces many parts of the
country and these gentlemen are
trying to solve it locally.
The community kensington met
last Wednesday afternoon at the
home of Mr. and Mrs. Ivan McBride,
the meeting being attended by a
goodly number of tho ladies of the
community. Much interest was man
ifest in the plans of the organization
for beautifying the city and also in
the matter which has agitated every
one in the entire community, that of
offering for sale the church building
which is the last vistage of any
place for a public gathering. If it
s sold, even funeral3 would have to
b held in other towns, in private
homes, or in the open.
There seems to be much indigna
tion over the way things are being
handled. Regardless of who holds
title to the building, the funds for
erection of the structure were raised
right here in Wabash and now that
the town has only this one last re
maining place of assembly, the peo
ple of the community are much op
posed to it being sold.
They point out that a piano which
was paid for by Wabash folks has
already been removed and taken to
another town without seeking per
mission from anyone locally, and that
just recently the pews were removed
and carted away to another town up
state. Now the final straw is added
to the case in the posting of notices
for the sale of the church building
at an early date.
Suffers Badly Injured Mouth
A group of young ball rlayers
came over from Elmwood for a game
with the Wabash lads. During the
course of the game, Clifford Browne,
Jr., in attempting to stop a hot ball
which was shot at him, missed it
and his face . became the backstop
for the missile. His mouth was bad
ly cut and bruised and have been
swollen and sore ever since. Like the
Spartans of old. the lad is taking his
accident philosophically and looking
forward to getting back into the
great American game soon.
To Observe Memorial Day
Plans are going forward for the
observane of Memorial day in Wa
bash. Lacey McDonald of Murdock
ia looking after many of the details
for this service at the cemetery that
serves the two communities, while
Miss Myrtle Wood has been assign
ed the task of supplying a speaker
for the occasion.
Building Has Interesting History
The church building which has
sheltered worshipers for more than
half a century and which it is pro
posed to dismantle at this time, has
had a very interesting history. It
was erected 53 years ago and thru
.nost of the intervening years has
been used as an edifice in which to
arry on the work of the Master.
In recent years it has not been used
regularly. When the Methodist orga
nization here ceased to function, the
Evangelical church maintained ser
vices there with H. A. Norenberg as
pastor, and again later services were
revived there with Rev. F. C. Weber
as pastor. Due to lack or interest and
general indifference these services
were discontinued, boing the last ot
their kind held there.
A Bible school was also maintain
ed as long as there was any interest,
with Sherman Hardaway the most
energetic worker. He was not able to
give it all the time and attention re
quired, however, and with laxing in
terest the Sunday school was discon
tinued. So here we are at the crossroads
of decision. Will the community
stand by and let the building be sold
and demolished, or will there be a
revival of interest for the cause of
religion generally and the church
j building that now faces destruction?
What will be done?
Many people enjoy reminiscing of
the "good old days." And why not?
The boys like to recall the days of
a half century or more ago, when
the railroad was as new as some of
our modern clay inventions are now,
(and the depot platform was always
i crowded with people who were eith
j er going some place, were there to
meet friends or just to watch the
train come and go as people did in
later years when the auto was new,
and even now do when aeroplanes
In those earlier days there lived in
the vicinity of the thriving village
of Wabash a family with several boys
(all now grown to manhood) who
played a prominent part in this par
ticular episode of our reminiscence
series. The boys had been sent to
haul manure from the barn and
spread it over the fields. The team
was foxy and particularly skittish at
sight or sound of a train, and so
were unhitched from the wogan and
tied elsewhere, while it was being
loaded near the barn door.
A sentinel or watchman was post
ed on the top of the shed nearby to
watch for the coming of the train,
so all could go and see it pass the
farmyard and hear the whistle. In
their work of loading the wagon and
interest in the coming of the train,
the boys failed to notice that it be
gan to creep forward on the down
grade, and quickly gaining speed it
scooted down the hill to the bank
of the Weeping Water creek, vaulted
over the bank iind plunged into the
farther side of the creek bed. The
tongue was rammed into the ground
fully half its length and broken off.
Here the piece remained for many
years until Ed Obernaulte, still of
Wabash and now residing at Ne
hawka. secured a chain and a team
of horses, and after digging around
the stub of the tongue was able to
pull it out of its long resting place
in the creek bed.
