Nod Lyons of Oklahoma City was
.in town Monday. Noel Lyons is
a big ice man. He freezes water for
pleasure purposes exclusively, but
sells the pleasure for aprofit. o his
business is just as commercial a that
of the Metro Utilities, or the makers
of the gas and eectric chill boxes.
Noel Lyons wants to put a hockey
team in Omaha. The team would be
a member of the American association,
which last season included Kansas
City, St- Louis, Oklahoma City and
Tulsa. Next winter it will have six
maybe eight members
* * m
Foreigner Hometowners
Noel Lyons talked with some of Ak
Sar Ben’s noblest knights- They were
interested. Presently they may an
nounce that there was a meeting of
th minds, as Prof. Bullock used to
say in com|nercial law class, the re
sult of which will be the decent, come
December, of a covey of hardy
French-Canucks on our town- These
Canucks would become, for rooting
purposes, just as simonpure, native
bom hometowners as, say Julius Bel
ford, or Bob Koran.
Canada has pretty much f a comer
on the production of pro hockey play
ers. Is rder for hckey to be profit
able the old hometowners fight must
be nurtured and encouraged. The
customers must kid themselves into
believing that a lot of Pierres and
Alphonses are bom defenders of the
municipl honor, just as in the summer
time they mut fool themselves into
seeing the outfielder from Racoon,
Gorgia and the third basemn from
Paw Paw, Michign, s bom defenders
of the municipal hosor on the baseball

What’s This Honor?
I’ve never been able to learn just
what is this honor that’s so habitually
challenged on the field of sport; nor to
dicover, no matter what it is, why it
is so continually in need of defense.
Being wared, cynical nature, I’ye
often suspected that it’s a sort of
straw sprite, set up by opportune
ballyhooists and promoters to be
knocked down by the enthusiastic
whoops of deluded payng customers
but I’m not going to twang any longer
on this theme and spoil a lot of
trustful folks’ideas Besides we were
dealing with ice—ice and hockey

They Go Wild
Mr. Noe ILyons feels that hockey
would go over big in Omaha, That’s
just what he said—hockey would go
over big.
“It’s the fastest, mst thrilling, most
dangerous hair raising sport there is,”
said Mr- Lyons. “People go wild over
Mr. Lyons had a lot more adjectives
but this will give you a general idea
how he feels about the product he has
for sale- It might be appropiate to
note at this place that a good many
hardened old sports observers agree
with Mr- Lyons- Two notable ex
ceptions do not
Hockey, said D^mon Runyon, in

Hockey, said Westbrook Pegleg, in

Grantland Rice once wrote a poem
about it- He thought it the thrilling
est chillingest, most marvelous, won
derfullest sport- Mr- Rice applies the
same description to other sports, in

called a knocker, or destructive critic.

Got 35 Horses
It would cost Ak-Sar Ben—or any
other corporation or individual around
35 horses to make the Coliseum ready
for hockey
Approximately 18 miles of 1% inch
pipe would have to be laid over the
present terrazo floor, then another
terrazo floor laid over thfe pipes- The
pipes carry the stuff that makes the
water turn harder than a gangsters
Mr. Yyons mentioned only the Ak
Coliseum as a possible site what do
you think?
