    Rex Drop Two Close Games to Little Rock
6-5, 4-3 as McCAKROLL
McCarroI, with plenty of stuff on
the ball, pulled a successful “iron man
stunt out at Western League park
und r a boiling hot sun, Wednesday
afternoon, to top of the success of the
Fourth of July excursion to Omaha
by the Little Rock Colored Travelors.
McCarroI tossed both games a
ganst the touted Cudahy Rex, Omaha
sandlotters and came out head hand
shoulders above the rest n a pair of
tght games. The fivist 6 to 5 and the
second 4 to 3. He pitched the open,
the« reli -ved Freeman in the fourth
inning of the second.
In the opening game the Rex came
uj one run short in the final inning
rally, scoring two on errors and a
double by Wright and Smith’s tap,
but that wasn’t enough.

WIMBLETON, Engdand, June 30—
The United States held six of the 16 ,
places in the quarter finals of both
the men’s and women’s singles di
visions as the first week of play
closed Saturday in the All-England
tennis championships.
Frank Shields, lanky New Yorker,
and George M. Lott, Chicago doubles
player, joined their Davis cup team
mates, Sidney B. Woods of New York
and Lester Stoefen of California, in
the “round eight” as King George
and Queen Mary headed a crowd of
20 thousand that ack-d the Wimble
don stands under a scorching sun.
But as lay resumed Monday, only
Wood, singles ace of the A|merican
Davis cup squad, was favored to ad
vance toward the men’s title now held
by Jack Crawford of Australia. Stoe
fen must lay the defending champ
before advancing any further, Lott
faces Fred Perry, one of England s
Davis cup singles champions, and the
eiratic Shields tackles the other, H.
W. “Bunny” Austin.
Wood fac.s much simpler opposi
tion in Vernon Kirby, SSouth African
star, who staged an upset Saturday
by eliminating Baron Gottfried von
Cramm of Germany, 6-2, 2_6, 6_4, 6_2.
The women’s quarterfnal pairings

Virgin Island League fceeus
to Oust Governor Pearson
The Suffragist League of the Virgin
Islands demands the removal of Paul
M- Pearson as Governor of the Vir
gin Islands. The protest, signed by
Ella Gifft, acting president, charges
Pearson with “maladministration, in
efficiency and misleading qualities.”
Miss Gifft assails the Governor for
employment of a well to do business
man as an NRA inspector of public
safety, for alleged failure to eradi
cate malaria and for allegedly inef
ficient hospitals
“Poor people,” she wrote, “who are
taken to the hospital because they
have no proper care at home are sent
out of the hospital before they are
strong enough to walk because there
is not enough money allotted the
hospital for the maintenance of these
“We even had typhoid fever the
last six months, which I believe is
due to the insanitary conditions in
which the gutters are kept- This
small island has never been in such
plight before, until this present ad
ministration came here”.
Miss Gifft asks that regulation of
the island le placed unde- the Amer
ican Navy.
The question is asked: “Can it be
true that in the rum producing Vir
gin Islands there is also brewed a
strange elixir which prolongs the
reign of Gcernor Paul M- Pearson?”
“Or is it the political brew of
Wttehington which l.nds the governor
the necessary strength to hang on to
his office despite opposition of the
people of the Islands and many Ad
ministration leaders?”
R. L. Cochran, state engineer, an
nounced his acceptance Tuesday of
the filings made by petitioners in
behalf of his candidacy for the gov
norship of Nebraska, with the fol
lowing statement to the press:

two years ago sought to incorporate
it and use the party for their own
selfish ends. Our party should have
a candidate who is not a rubber

Nebraska is primarily an agricul
soil- If Nebraska is to prosper, the

farmer must prosper- A candidate
should be elected to represent the
people of Nebraska who is thorough
ly familiar with farming and who
understands the fawners’ problems
Such a background can only be gain
ed by living in an agricultural com
munity- The people of a farm state
like Nebraska need a representative
in Washington who believes in the
farmer, a Senator who will preserve
the farmers’ markets and one who
will see that a parity price is con
tinued placing agriculture on a par
with all other industry.
The setting up of codes in all
forms of industry for both industry
and labor, eliminates unfair trade
practices and guarantees to labor a
living wage and to industry a legiti
mate profit- Why has agriculture
been left out of the picture? The in
dustry of this state is agriculture
One who orders a beefsteak in a

not guaranteed a profit is the farm
er- We should either go back to the
old axiom that “competition is the
life of trade” or else the farmer
should be guaranteed under a code
the same privilege that is now
guaranteed to all other forms of in
dustry- Recently in the papers Gen
eral Johnson said you couldn’t pry
the codes away from industry with a
crow bar- The only recourse left then
for the Nebraska faspners is to come
together in a huge mass meeting and
write codes for all branches of agri
culture, fixing the price on their
commodities guaranteeing a legiti
mate profit.

Looking back over the field of
Omaha athletes. I have failed to find
one that has begun his training
young. I don’t know whether it is
the lack of proper facilities or are they
just uninterested until later. The
success of our best athletes has come
from an early start. Take in the
tennis world, Frankie Pairjker, when
he was just 16 years old he could
defeat sdme of the old veterans of the
game. Even Omaha's own Tex
Mahacek, of ’South High, got his
try out with the St. Louis Browns
last year at the age of 16. These
boys are doing nothing unsual, it is
a common oceurance (else where be
sides North Omah). Maybe they are
a little better than the average run.
but that’s not the point. They got
the proper sta->t at an early age.
As soon as our boys can tottle, in
stead of taking up some sport that
will b»aild th m up mentally, physical
ly, and morally, they fall in line with
the rest of the pool hall bums and so
called slickers. I have seen some
good athletes in the making go bad
just that way.
Anoth r thing is that they refuse
to practice and stick to strict rules
tha are so necessary in making an
athlete. In stead they would rather
take ther ability foil granted and
loaf somewhere in the shade.
Oh, yes you can start them out
right but will they keep on going
that way ? I do give one group of
younster credit for sticking together
thus far and developing a pretty nice
baseball team and in the winter a
real basketball team. They are the
Mid City Aces; Richard Brown. Earl
Anda son, Fred Harrison, Pete Po
well, William Wade and Herman
Kemp. They have a good start. I
hope they keep going that way. Of
course, they are not up to par, but
they’ll pass.
We have a little better opportunity
to help the little lads get the right
start in the Mid City Community
Center and its fine staff, use it.
Most ball players believe there are
only so many hits in) each piece of
wood, consequently they object to
lending their favorite bats because
the borrowed may use up some of the
hits, evidently some of our sandlot
players haven’t ever had a favorite
club to loan, according to their bat
ting average.
