seventh and last inning, when Mason
made a three bagger. Collins their
short, made a home run v.her the
bill was lest in the sixth. The sheep
had not done their stunt as they
Suould. This was a good game with
many good features by all the boys.
Mason as pitcher was three strike
outs ahead of League for the
visitors. League walked three men
while Mason walked none. There
were four hits off each of the pitch
ers. Grassman made a good play in
getting a ball to first, which resulted
in an out of Alva Graves. Robeson
was the ump, and gave good satis
faction. The visitors were slightly
crabby and the results were:
Armours J2r0-0 0 0 "1 01 2"
Red Sox 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 1
Second Game Not So Good.
In the second game Robeson gave
way to Dr. Sandin. Mason was re-

Edwards and Edwards was relieved
by Mason. This was putting Stimp

Turner made a run in the first, then
Edwards began again, as he seemed
to have gotten his second wind, for
he made the remainder of the runs.
Whenever he was up to bat he swat

five hits from Stillmock, their twirl
er, one base hit, three two base
hits and one three base hit, with
the four runs which he got seemed
as though it should be enough, but
he wanted to hit it again. Joe Mc
Carty made one of the neatest fly
catches, which kept the visitors down
just one more opportunity. Stimp
son played excel'.ent ball, both as
pitcher and first, while Mason did
great work in the box and good
support as outfielder. Gradoville
got two base hits, and three singles,
while Turner tilted the pill for two
two base hits, but was caught at
second. Herold made two extra fine
fly fowl catches, while he made a
double play with Edwards, catching
two men giving a bunted ball to
Edwards at first, who returned it at

JUL)' SUGAR IS
Nebraska Gets 5,940,000 Pounds
for Month, Says Food Ad
ministration. From Friday's Dally.
Nebraska's allotment for sugar for
the month of July is a. 940, 000
pounds, according to information
coming to the federal administration
Save all you can from this amount.
is the urgent request from Herbert
Hoover, Uuited States Food Adminis
trator, in a telegram to the Nebraska
administration. "If you find It nec
essary to issue certificates for more
that the allotment to the state, au
thorization must be had from Wash
ington." "It is imperative that consumpt
ion of sugar be reduced to the rations
outlined by the food admisistrat ion.
It is more to be desired that the avail
able sugar be economically and equit
ably distributed, rather than to
meet an acute shortage later.
Because of the Immediate respon.se
to the beef conservation program of
the food administration, the govern
ment has been enabled to purchase
substantially the amounts needed for
export and as a result a modification
of the program has been authorized
by Mr. Hoover.
Meat Once a Day.
Effective Monday, July S, public
eating houses TJtOJebraska will be
permitted to serve beef one meal each
day, announces A. c. Lau. aeputy
food administrator for Xebraska.
That the meal may be uniform in
the state, the noon day meal has
been selected as the one during
which beef may be served. By-pro
ducts of beef, such as hearts, llvero.
te., may be served at all meals. .
In the opinion of Hoover, which is
hared by the Xebraska food admin
istration, the one meal per day order
will now effect a sufficient conserva-
ion to meet the requirements.
Xo change is made in the request
o mausenoiaer. consumers in the
homes are requested to limit their
consumption of beef to one and one
quarter pounds of clear beef per per
son per week, or one and one-half
pounds of meat and bone.
"The new order has the advantage
of also preventing spoilage and waste
which might accumulate in the
smaller towns where adequate freezer
facilities are lacking" says Lau. All
public eating places are being notified
by the hotel chairman and are re
quested to put the new order into
effect next Monday.
