vicinity of Louisville, were in Omaha

the Omaha Legion post, which was
as good as any dished out to Nebras

years. In every buit from tlie first
preliminary to the main event, the
contestants were evenly matched and
put up a pood exhibit iuii of the
manly sport. Much credit for this
is due Jake Isaacson. Legion athletic
director. w l. will give the fans some

Schmader Was Game
"Schmader nevertheless was game
and fought a losing uphill fight from
the first. Kt w other fighters would
have stood on their feet before the
barrage of blows that Roper sent to
him. Round after round he was los
ing ground but he stood toe to toe
with the army man until the final
two rounds when he began to hang
on to Roper.
"Recent fights of Schmader have
given the Louisville boy little op
portunity to extend himself or open
himself to punishment. He has been
winning all of his fights by knock
outs in the early rounds, being on
the of;ensie at all times and never
forced to offer defense. His defeat
does not leave him in the 'has been'
class, but with lots of lessons on de
fense and faster foot work he will
be ready for Roper again.
"Roper is one of the fastest heavy
weights ever appearing in a local
ring. From the first go?j ho was
on the offensive and jut as fresh
at the end of the program as be
was after the first round. He was
in perfect physical condition and re
quired no assistance in his corner
between rounds. His trainer, Ren
Smith, just wiped his body with a
towel and Roper waited until the
bell called him in again.
"Roper used both right x and left
hands with equal effectiveness. His
lefts straight from the shoulder were
evil ones for Schmader to take while
his right and left swings to Schmad
j er's stomach and ribs almost ren
dered the Louisville boy helpless.
Schmader lauded but twoood blows
on Roper during the fight. Bob's de
fence was too clever for the Louis
ville boy and his blovs were easily
I "The decision was popular and
Roper won the whole crowd to him
. before the fight was over. Manv
Omahans expressed their desire to
see him in action here again soon.
Roper was entertained at a dance
at the Deitz club last night follow
ing the fight. He leaves for St.
Louis today with his manager, train
er and sparring partners where he
.will meet Martin Durke of New
Orleans next week.
Hammer Wins Bout
j "The semi-windup between Ever
' Hammer, of Chicago and Arlos Fan
ning was equally good. Hammer won
the decision over the younger Kan
i sus Cityan after ten rounds of ter
rific fighting on the parts of both
men. The decision was popular anJ
, well earned. Roth fought 'in'
throughout the mill, though Fanning
, tried to draw the Chicago man out
for some open fighting. Fanning
took the worst punishment from
Hammer's body and uppercuts but
put up a game fight and stood ready
I to exchange blows when Ihe final bell
; was sounded.
t "Turk Logan won the city light
weight championship by defeating
Happy Maloiie of the stout h side in
all of the six rounds.
"Young Bruno knocked out Tommy
Vaughn in the first round of a sched
uled iix round mill.
"The refereeing of Curley I'lrich
of St. Paul was most popular with
the big crowd.
"The Douglas county post of the
American Legion is to be ci edited
for th" program which was slaved
under its auspices. It was free from

GET INTO DRAGNET
Saturday evening Sheriff Quinton
was called out to the Platte bottom
where the action of two strangers
driving a car was noticed by the pas
sershy and threatened for a time to
prevent anyone else from driving
along the highway.. It seems that the
two men who gave their names as
George Brow n and W. H. Morrow had
partaken freely of some fluid that
supplied a great deal of kick and
which affected their vision to such
an extent that they were unable to
see the road and to them the high
way seemed double and they attempt
ed to keep on both of the roads with
tite result that other parties passing
them were put in peril of their lives.
On reaching here the two men were
placed in the county jail to rest up.

BASE BALL GAMES
Eagles Win from Union 7 to 5 Sun
day and Lose to Weeping
Water 14 to 8 Monday
The Eagles base ball team of this
city, as the result of their Sunday
and Monday games drew a fifty-fifty
split, as thev won from the Union
team and dumped one at Mauley
yesterday to the Weeping Water
The Union game required ten in
nings to complete with the locals
holding the long end of the score
and was a very pretty exhibition of
the national pastime. Bill Mason
was the mound artist and Pete Her
(dd in the receiving station in this
battle and when the final result was
checked up the Eagles were able to
tally seven runs while the dwellers
along the Weeping Water creek had
annexed five of the scores. Hoback
and Hathaway did the battery work
for the" Union team and the players
of our neighboring city put up a first
class exhibition of base ball all the
S'esterday the wet condition of the
grounds here made playing with
Weeping Water here impossible and
accordingly Manager Barclay made
arrangements with the Mauley ball
team to play the contest there, as
their diamond is one of the best in
that part of the county and despite
the short notice of the game there
was a very large crowd in atten
dance. The Weeping Water team played
a good game, with Buckmaster and
Gradoville doing the battery work,
while Connors and Herold perform
ed the same job for the Eagles, but
the Weeping Water team was more
fortunate in the fielding as the er
rors checked on the Plattsmouth
team were costly and aided in the
score of 14 to 8 that the Weeping
Water team secured.
The umpiring was looked after by
O'Brien of Manley and the Eagles
were well pleased with his splendid
work with the indicator as well as
the excellent manner in which they
were treated by the Manley people
and the management of the local
team desires to thank the umpire
and the Manley people for the fine
way In which they were tieated
while in our neighboring city.
ANDY LOOKIN TO
Louisville Scrapper Feels He Has the
Punch that Can Win Over
Captain Bob Roper.
From Wednesday's Daily.
Andv Schmader. Cass County's clev
er young padded glove artist, who'
lost the match at Omaha on the 4th, j
on points, is more than anxious for
a future meeting with Captain Bob
Roper, the winner of the Omaha bout.
Andy is feeling in the best of shape
after the severe gruelling that he un
derwent at the hands of Bob Roper
and aside from three slight cuts on
the face dees not show any indica
tion that he was through the long
and hard fought battle.
Before leaving Omaha for his home
Mr. Schmarder stated to the Omaha ;
newspaper representatives that he I
had secured knockouts from men who)
had stayed the limit with Roper. In j
speaking of the matter the sporting
department of the World-Herald
quotes Andy as follows: "I almost
had him out in the second, and I
am told I had him groggy in the
eighth. I shall continue training
with one thought in mind a return
bout with Roper. And when the match
takes place I promise Omaha fans to
put him away."
SHOWING SOME IMPROVEMENT
The. condition of John Wooster,
former resident of this city, but now
living near Reliance, South Dakota,
is reported as being somewhat im
proved over his previous condition.
Mr. Wooster's brothers. Frank and
Joe and sister, Mrs. W. F. Krisky
were at Reliance for a short time
looking after the brother and found
on their arrival there that he had
made some favorable changes over
that of a few weeks ago. It seems
that the patient has been suffering
for a number of years from hem
morhage of the stomach but it had
been thought that he was cured of
the affliction but the overwork of
caring for his farm of 400 acres had
brought on a renewed attack and
which forced him to take to his bed.
The relatives have returned home
and report that he is now much bet
ter. The crops in that country are I
excellent and especially on the farm 1
