having knocked 11 home runs during
the season. Krajicek is also fast on
his feet, an accurate peggcr and a
heady fielder. Berry is by no means
a weak hitter, and it was his bat that
almost caused the Townsends to lose
the pennant when the Murphy de
feated them, 4 to 2, in a twilight
game. Recognizing Berry's strength

The snare manager of the
Athletics is part owner of the club,
else he would hardly he with us now.
No mere manager could finish last
for seven years and hover about
that spot in the midst of his eighth
season and still remain among those
present. At that, he won enough
pennants between 1901 and 1914 to
merit more than ordinary consider
ation. Conni and McGraw, the-winners
cf many pennants, strjul out as the
only 20-ycar managers in all base
ball, and they owe their longevity
as much to circumstances as to re
mits attained. Both arc stock
holders, and McGraw, in addition,
is given carte blanche in the matter
of buying talent. Were it not for
that it is extremely doubtful whether
John would have been able 'to bag
seven pennants in some 22 starts.
Football Practice Gets
Under Way at Yale
N'cvv Haven, Conn., Sept. 9. The
first football practice at Yale took
place last week, a large number of
candidates taking part. The schedule,
including games with "Iowa, Army,
Princeton and Harvard, is an espe
cially hard one, and the Blue mentor
is anxious to get bis merlin good
physical shape tor the long jrmd.
An interesting feature of the
schedule is the fact that both Wil

Berry lacks the "pep" which charac

The third corner finds Mancusco
of the North Omaha Boosters chosen
for leading honors. Mancusco is a
fast tickler and a good hitter. Clink
Clair, ex-western leaguer, is a much
headier third sacker than Mancusco,
but docs -not possess the dash and
vigor of this youngster. Clair of
the W. O. Ws. is valuable for bis
knowledge of the game and his fac
ulty for stopping the hard ones, but
his stick work is not what it could
Lindbcrg of the Cusacks proved the
sensation of the year at shortstop,
and won his w,ay to first choice over
a lot of good matt-rial. The flashy
Swede is one of the best inficlders
ever produced on Omaha sandlots.
In a game against the W. O. Ws.
which resulted in a- 1 to 0 shutout
for Krupski, the W. O. W. ace, Lind
bcrg made 11 assists, one putout and
one bobble- This single error was
on a try out of his territory, and
really should have been credited as
Lindbrrg is consistent in his field
ing and it was his strength at short
stop that helped to make the Cusacks
into a Class A team after a Class C
start. Lindbrrg is fast on his feet,
and also has considerahle power with
the bat, although he sometimes falls
into a slump. But, without a doubt,
he is the classiest shortstop in ama
teur ball today. Jimmy Mirasky,
star, shortstop for t he South Side
Merchants, is riilitltcd to second hon
ors, Jimmy is a brilliant fielder, of
the flashy type, but inclined to get
erratic in the tijjht place. Jimmy is

An outstanding feature of the
mythical nines is that the three
Mirasky brothers, tVo South Sidcrs
and one Woodmen, are mentioned
for all-star honors.
Three South Omaha Merchants,
two Woodmen, two Townsends and
one man from the Boosters, Caseys,
Cusacks, Murphys and Lakemen

The second team is composed of
three South Siders, three Woodmen,
three Drive Its, two Townsends and
one Murphy Dit It.

IN July, just past, and now again in August,
The Omaha Bee gains in advertising exceed
all other papers by wide margins and in August
both in total inches and percentage of gain.
The Omaha Bee believes that the real basis of a newspaper's
value is its circulation arid rate, plus the buying power of
that circulation. However, much emphasis has for years
in Omaha been placed on advertising volume. Therefore,
The Omaha Bee submits the figures of gains jn advertis
ing of all classes. These figures tell a story so plain that
"he who runs may read."

Of course, such an advertising growth as tjiis means that The Omaha Bee -t
advertisers are getting the benefit of a rapidly increasing circulation.
Daily average circulation for July was 71,625, an increase of 11,712 over
the July 1921, figures. The Sunday average circulation for July was
76,332, an increase of 19,860 over the July, 1921, figures.
