Contribute to Victory.
Plattsmouth football fans who
were out at Athletic park Wednes
day afternoon had the opportunity
of seeing one of the best teams that
has represented the local school In
the last few years In action. It was
a hard hitting force of backs and a
resolute line attack and defense that
made possible the 20 to 7 victory,
and against a hard fighting: team
The fans were delighted with the
showing of Coacji Bion Hoffman's
boys and which showed in action sev
eral complete lines, one almost
equally as good as the other.
The first scoring occurred a few
moments after Referee Bill Ossian
had sounded the starting whistle,
when on the kickoff in the second
play BUI Steinkamp, the scoring hero
of the day was off down the field
where the Glenwood goal was beck
oning.' stopped on the 15 yard line.
Allan White skirted the end for the
touchdown and Noble made the kick
good for the extra point.
In the latter part of the first quar
ter Glenwood took advantage of a
Plattsmouth fumble and with a bril
liant end run by Woodhead of the
visitors scampered over the goal line,
fhe Rams made the extra point good
on a line plunge for a 7 all tie' of
In the second quarter the Hoffman-
ttes again took the lead on a well
staged sneak play that caught the
viators flat-footed for the second Plat
ter touchdown of the game. With
the ball in the Glenwood territory
White was away on a flashk twenty
yard dash that brought the ball into
the visitors' zone, then a tos3 from Ed
Smith, battling backfield man, to
Steinkamp on the sidelines, brought
over the score. Bill then came
through the line and the Platters
were out In front with a 14 to 7
The latter part of the second and
the third quarter saw the Platters
carrying their hard fight to the
Glenwood team and in which Lester,
Powell. Noble and the line players
featured. The Platters tried several I
passes which, however, were fruit
less n the scoring.
In the fading moments of the
last quarter the two teams again
took a scoring spree as the Platters
punted to the Glenwood forty and
from where Steinkamp carried the
ball to the Glenwood twenty from
where White got away to sweep the
end for a 30 yard gain and coming
inches in getting into the open. The
scoring came when Smith flipped a
pass to Steinkamp near the sidelines,
who ran over standing up for the
last score. The try for extra point
Glenwood was checked within a
tew feet of the Platter goal on one
of the sensational plays of the game
In a sweeping run that outdistanced
the Platter defense. The Platters,
however, held in the battering attack
on the local line and the ball was
finally fumbled by the Glenwood
carrier and the ball placed in play
on the twenty yard line in possession
of the Platters and after which Glen

a flashlight and issued a "land S.O.S. that finally stopped a motorist and
obtained prompt treatment in a hospital. Fenimore, who drives for an
overland freight company, was on his way from Cincinnati to Columbus.
Blinded and knocked back in his seat by the shock, he brought his truck
to stop and shut off his motor. "For one hour I stood in the soaking rain,
signalling the motorists, before one stopped," he said. "Luckily the bat
teries in my flashlight were fresh when I put them in so the light con
tinued to burn." Rushed to a hospital, Fenimore soon recovered his sight,
his blindness being caused by nerve shock.
