BUT LOSES ON
FOUL IN FOURTH
CASS COUNTY LAD SENDS "BIG
CHIEF" STOCK TUMBLING IN
THE THIRD ROUND.
APPARENTLY LOST HIS HEAD
And Ignored Repeated Warnings by
Referee Fitzgerald 'Against
New Type of Foul.
Putting up an offensive type of
fight from start to finish, and even
alter Referee Fitzgerald had raised
the hand of his opponent. Andy Sch
mader, of Louisville, lost to George
Lamson, the Walthill Indian (n the
fourth round of a ten round bout at
the Omaha auditorium last night. It
is estimated that upwards of '200
I'lattsmouth people saw the bout.
The Louisville lad faced consider
able punishment in the first two
rounds as a result of taking the in
itiative and failing to guard as well
as he should. .At one time he took
a count of six or seven but came up
smiling, and fought harder than be
fore. The third round was the really in
teresting one, as Schmader opened
with a furious fusilade of blows on
the Big Chief and had things prac
tically his own way throughout the
three minutes of fighting that com
prised this round. In the last 50
seconds of the round he floored the
Indian twice, and had the gong not
interrupted would have surely put
over the "haymaker" in short order.
The round proved, at least, that
Lamson can't stand punishment, al
though he does possess considerable
fighting ability. At the end of this
round both be and Schmader were
somewhat groggy as a result of 'their
nine minutes milling.
At the opening of the ftmrtlf the
Indian was disposed to fall into
repeated clinches, and in forcing a
break Schmader flung him to the mat
twice, each time being warned by
the referee, but it seems the ex-navy
lad lost his head for he continued,
and the third time Fitzgerald held
up the Indian's hand in token oi' a
decision. At the same time Schmader
thinking to resume the fight as soon
as Lanison regained his feet contin
ued the offensive, both he and Lam
son swinging wildly" at each other in
the heat that comes from loss of
coolheadedness. Police were in the
ring in a moment and separated the
fighters. Considerable howling oc
the decision was heard. .but in justice
it must be said that Fitzgerald gave
Schmader warning in advance, and
had the Louisville lad not lost his
head he might today be undisputed
The questionabTfe result of the go.
may mean the bringing together at
a not far distant date these two con
tenders, in which event it will be a
genuine battle from start to finish.
People generally and friends of
Schmader in particular would wel
come the opportunity of testing the
ability of both to stand up through
ten regulation rounds in the squared
For the first time he has been sub
jected to punishment before an audi
ence of mid-west fans, Schmader per
formed well, and with one eye par
tially closed in the first, stood up to
the gaff until he successfully turned
the tide of battle and sent the Big
Chief's stock tumbling groundward,
only to lose the match on the techni
cality of a foul.
A good four round preliminary,
followed by the six round semi-wind-up
between Eddie Hart, of Chicago,
and Kid Schlieffer, alias Jack Kyan,
an Omaha lad, were also on the bill.
In the latter, Ryan was wmnor, al
though the bout went the full six
rounds. Hart entered the ring at
15 pounds more weight than the
tenacious little Jew, who was able
to more than hold his own with the
To Jack Lewis, who promoted and
managed the fight, is due much of
the credit for the smooth manner in
which everything went off. Boxing
is a perfectly legitimate sport under
right management. while on the
other hand it would soon revert to
rowdyism under less able control.
The army brought it into favor
and it is up to such promoters as
Lewis to keep it there and secure the
necessary legislation for legalizing
the longer round bouts.
Cass County Organized in Preparation

No doubt it will be interesting to
know that the methods of the Sal
vation Army have been readjusted
which have given them a standing
throughout the United States that
will enable them. to do more efficient
work than ever before, if such things
State Advisory Boards, composed of
business men from all walks of life,
have been organized in 26 states and
efforts are being put forth to include
all; following the state organization,

Nebraska and Cass county are
among the number, for Nebraska is

or more members in each precinct.
The duties of the Advisory Board,
among other things, is to report all
cases in their neighborhood that can
be handled by the army, its simply a
method of working cut the pro
gramme from the outside territory
where help is needed. It will also
be the duty of the board to make
drives for money to finance and carry
on the wcrk, to build homes, such as.
rescue homes. maternity homes,
boarding homes for needy working
girls and various other items and by
this method the "street corner beg

will never see it any more, thus it
will enable these people In uniform
to exert their energies to more im

this organization, laboring as they
have been for fallen humanity, have
"come unto their own" and by the
business men throughout the United
States coming to their assistance
will give them a standing in society
they have justly earned. ( '

JUDGMENTS VARY AS DO
THE TYPES OF MANKIND
Human opinions vary as much as
do the types of beings in whose
minds they are conceived. Especial
ly is this noticeable in sportsmanship,
wherein prejudice often enters and
becomes a paramount feature. There
are certain followers of has-beens
and would-bes who can't be quite fair
minded when to do so would, mean
acknowledgement of certain points
of superiority not possessed by their
"champion." Then there are others,
who though they may want to see
the reverse of what actually happens
in a fistic battle, a wrestling match,
or what not, can be fair-minded and
see things as they really happen.
Claims and counter-claims are in
order following the Lamson-Schmad-cr
bout last night, very few if any
of which come from prejudiced minds
and are not absolutely accurate.
Even the sports writers on the
Omaha papers disagree over many
details of the scrap; which only goes
to prove thai it is human nature to
err in judgment, not to say anyrtiing
of the. perverted opinions that come
from looking at things through the
spectacles of prejudice.

Adds a Few Thoughts on the
Lonely Wife Question.
The communication appearing in
the Journal several weeks ago from
"A Lonely Wife" appears to have
struck an acho in the minds of many
of the readers of this great family
organ and it has revealed that there
are others "more lonesome than you".
The following from one of the read
ers of the Journal from the vicinity
of Cedar Creek. gives a few more in
sights on the loneiromeness of the
To the Journal Editor.
Here is an answer to the letter
published in the Journal September
13th, regarding the neglect of hus
bands. Please publish it for the ben
efit of this lonely-Avife.
My Dear Friend:
You sure have my sympathy. I
imagine your heart must be broken.
Now you ask why so many married
women go wrong?
Here's another question concerning
the same matter, this is fifty-fifty.
Why do so many married men go
wrong, after leading a good, clean
life and always had u respectable
reputation perhaps, before and after
the first six months or year of their
married life. I think it is because
either side has been fleeced and
haven't the required attentions they
desire and not the right one at home
to atract'and hold them there.
Why does a man neglect his wife?
Most men .are alike, and do you sup
pose that if a man was running to
catch a street car, and after ho
caught it, he'd keep on running?
Chances are your hubby caught the
first car and then decided it wasn't
the one he wanted, so he is running
to catch the second one.
You ask why a husband leaves his
wife without as muck as a goodbye
Do you ever bid him goodbye and
ask him when he will be home to li li
ne r or supper?
Cheer up. you're not the only one.
there are thousands of wives in the
same boat, but they hadn't thought
of it. I think I have a case almost
as serious as yours.
I'm a wife with a very loving dis
position and nobody loves their hubby
nor enjoys kissing him better thin I
do. I'm exactly like Beatrice Fairfax
on that point; to me a kiss is a sacred
symbol between two who love, but
hubby never kisses me, and when
ever I make any effort to kiss him ho
treats me as cold as a cow does her
calf at weaning time, when its wear
ing a spiked muzsle.
Hubby very seldom leaves home,
he's a regular home lover and he just
loves home, but from all sign I don't
think he loves me at all, or perhaps
he isn't much of a lover. That may
be your case too.
Perhaps your hubby isii't home
enough to give you these attentions
you require, those kind words and
kisses you long for, but supposing
he didn't give you any of these de
sired attentions if he did stay home?
Your hubby has a pretty good excuse,
but can anyone tell me why my hub
by even objects to me kissing hint?
You ask why he does not think of
your happiness? Perhaps he doesn't
know but what you are happy.
Do you keep it to yourself? Do
you ever tell him you are not happy
and long to be with him more? If
he is a business man or a laborer he
is very likely to be too busy to rea
lize your unhapiness and chances
are like most women, when he comes
home from his office you put on a
long face, instead of greeting him
with a kiss or a friendly hello, and
he gets the impression you are mad
and not satisfied with his company,
that's why he stays down town and
don't come home more often.
There is always two sides to every
thing. If you have a husband, it is
your place to make some of those ad
vances as well as him. No doubt
your heart is breaking when you sit
home alone grieving and pining it
away, but nine chances out of ten
it's a woman's own fault when she
sits home alone all the time, if she
never expresses any desire to go
along, he thinks you don't care to
go along and he gets in the habit of
going without you.
The reason why a man tells his
wife she isn't like some other man's
wife, is because she isn't. That's a
favorite expression among all men.
Perhaps he means you don't look like
her. dress like her, or thinks you
don't act like her. or best of all.
maybe ha means he likes your looks
better and it don't exactly impose
upon you because he sympathises
with some other man's wife, perhaps
he sees some other man's wife that is
having a real bard time and really
needs sympathy. That's another nat
Yes, I think a wife should know
her husband's business dealings, but
if there is anything he needs in the
line of supplies to run his business
with. I think he ought to have the
right to buy or sell them.
I am unable to answer all of your
questions, but the best, advice 1 can
give you is this:
Tell your husband of your nnhap
piness and your longing to be with
him and go with him more. Show
your affections for him aDd try and
win him over by making yourself,
more youthful and attractive and
take more pride in yourself each day,
and if he still loves you, surely he
will give you more attention.
Some r.ien tire of their wives be
cause she sometimes looses all her
pride and doesn't care how she looks
or acts after she is married a while.
Then they go away from home to seek
ether companv that suits them bet
ter. Well, here's the whole thing sum
med up in a nut shell. I think the
men are changing with the ways of
the world and so many men are al
ways busy loving some other man's
wife when he ought to be loving his
own. If you can't win him over
with these suggestions and he won't
ask you to go with him, go anyway.
Pros your hair in the latest castle
bob or antonette curls and go to the
movies more often and make it a
point- to get home about the same
time hubby does.
Go to other sociable affairs more
often and perhaps your hubby will
realize the fact that you are not asleep
and that you have a little pep left in
your body and he'll get the idea that
he has to stay at home and watch
you and maybe he will ask you to go
with him once in a while. If you
can't win him over this way, well,
then, I've got nothing more to say.

In one hour you can drive a whole line of AI'EX fence. This is
the Time-Saving Feature of Apex Posts. Another advantage is that
They Last Twice as Long
as Wooden Posts
The first cost of Apex posts is slightly more than of cheap wooden
posts, but they can be driven so rapidly and easily that a steel
fence line is actually cheaper than one of wood costs. And there
are no rotten bottoms and sagging fence to contend with.
Take no substitute for the genuine
