GROWING BIGGER WITH YEARS It seems but a short time ago that a small group of interested men met at the American Legion building -one warm August night in 1932 to dis cuss the matter of some sort of a fall entertainment in Plattsmouth. There were some who thought the time wasn't right and who counseled waiting until after the depression there were some timid souls who feared it couldn't be done and there were also fearless ones who counseled that nothing attempted, nothing gain ed. It Is doubtful anything would have come of the meeting but for the pres ence of L. S. Devoe. fresh from a tewn that was doing just that sort of thing, and after a glowing word picture by the pedagogue, the idea started to take. So. from this unpretentious begin ning there was born Plattsmouth's King Korn Karnival, which followed more or less in the footsteps of the illustrious Topsy and just "growed" year after year in size and splendor. It has been the uniting bond that stirred the populace of this commun ity to co-operative efforts and unity of purpose and their labor has not gone unrewarded. In another week the eighth annual Korn Karnival will be opening. It is bigger"and better than ever before and will draw people here from a greater distance than ever before. Our King Korn Karnival has grow ed out of its swadling clothes and is headed for still greater success as the years come and go. It is tradit ionally of, by and for Plattsmouth, Cass county and our nearby neigh bors living beyond county lines.

Local People Give Opinions on War Crisis Plattsmouth Residents Agree on the Chances IT. S. Will Stay Out of European War. Regardless of politics. Plattsmouth people who were Interviewed regard ing the present European war crisis seemed to think that America can 3tay, and above all, should stay out of war. Do you think we can stay out of the war? How? J. Howard Davis, Chamber of Com merce president and city attorney. 1004 Main street: "The U. S. can Hay out of war. She can stay out I by maintaining her neutrality policy which she has established and by giving her people the facts about the war rather than dishonest propa ganda. With keeping America in formed reliably, the American people will insist on strict neutrality." Dr. H. G. McClusky, First Pres byterian church pastor. 323 South Seventh street: "I think they can hold their neutrality unless one of the enemies perform something that would cause us to draw into war. I think we can stay out of war un less England shou'1 be very hard pressed and in which case we may have to go to war just as before." Mrs. L. S. Devoe, housewife, 110 North 11th street: "I think the U. S. can stay out of war by staying strictly at home and keeping off the seas. America may sell clothing and food to belligerent nations pro vided if they come after it and pay cash for it, but I absolutely am op posed to America sending munitions and other war supplies to Europe. Miss Verna Leonard, assistant li brarian, . Coronado Apartments: "I "hope' and everyone hopes and prays that U. S. will remain neutral, but my own personal opinion is that it depends upon developments." County Register of Deeds Ray F. Becker. Chicago Avenue: "Due to the fact that this small country (Po land) has not made any effort to pay on the present war debt, the United States should remain neutral." Searl S. Davis, real estate and in surance agent, 604 North 5th street, three children: "I think the United States can stay out of war by using its diplomatic corps and having the politicians of the country out of the negotiations. There is no reason for the U. S. becoming involved in this crazy European situation." Frank A. Cloidt, reigning King Korn and cashier at the Plattsmouth State bank, 1104 Main street: "I think we should stay out of the war and I think that we should be neu tral and probably not sell to the warring powers." Miss Etta Nickles, proprietor of the Etta-Belle Beauty Shop, 416 North Fifth street: "Yes, we can stay and will stay out as long as President Roosevelt ha3 the power and the backing of the democracy of the United States to help him. Every one has to pull together." Miss Helen Smetana. stenograph er for the L. W. Egenberger Agency, 221 Vine street: "If the belligerent countries don't interfere with our jhips and our people, I think United States can and will stay out of war. If the people in the U. S. cooperate with the president, there is no doubt that America entering the "war can be averted." T. H. Pollock, superintendent of the Plattsmouth Water Corp.. 724 Main street, two children: "I think the way for America to stay out of war is: 1. To move all embargo on everything to all countries; let them come here and get it provided they pay cash for it. If we sell to all of the countries alike, letting them come and get it, why we are not showing any favors. 2. I think the United States should have as big a navy as there is In the world so that it can protect both coasts. Of course, the complications that brought us into the last war might come again. If we keep our ships off the high seas, except to protect our own course and not going into commerce at all. the U. S. will have no trouble In re maining neutral." Mr. and Mrs. Harry Royal of Lin coln and Mr. and Mrs. Alvin Graves of Omaha were here Sunday for a visit at the home of their aunt, Mrs. Mary Burnett.

While no suspects have been ar rested as yet in the slaying of Boyd Hubler, 28-year-old river worker, there are many angles to. the case that has kept Sheriff Joe Mrasek and Deputy Sheriff Emery Doody busy In the attempt to trace the last tragic journey that the victim of the mur der took last Saturday night. Many rumors and reports have left a wide field over which the officers must operate to try and definitely tie the crime and the place that it was committed. Possibilities that the crime might have occurred any where from Omaha to Union where he had lived for two years has made the field very difficult for the of ficers. The unusual weapon that was used in the crime may be one of the causes of a break In the trace for the slayer as it is unusual and ap parently made tor the purpose that it was used for, that of a murder or slugging.
