Cosati for Mothlng In
A large number of bowlers of both eexes
gathered at Clark's alleys Tuesday after
noon to see the exhibition games between
the All-American bowlers and local men
of more than average records.
The preliminary games consisted of
series between pairs of players. The
Omaha players were Schneider and Beselln,
while the All-Amerlcans changed off. The
first set waa between Peterson and Wolf of
the All-American and the Omaha mm. The
result was score of 347 for the Omaha
men to 314 for the visitors. In the next
game. Selbach and Vorhela were pitted
against the Omaha men and the score stood
381 to 383 In favor of Omaha, giving the
home men a total of 730, against 665 for
The individual game between Wolf of
the ' All-American and Huntington of
Omaha resulted In score of 191 to 174 In
favor of Wolf.
These preliminary .games have nothing
to do with the ecore for the prise, which
waa played for later In the day, but the
Interest of the crowd was almost as great
In them as It waa In the more Important
event, aa they then bad an opportunity to
aee the work of the visitors. The men
showed themselves to be strong bowlers,
cool of head and deliberate of action. Their
record In sixty-one contest series being
perfect, not one series being lost, and only
forty-six three-men team games lost out
of a total of 264, waa borne out by the ap
pearance of the men In the alleys.
The crowd ,waa Impartial, giving cheers
for good playing Indiscriminately, at least
In the preliminary work, but when the
record contest for the medal started the
people showed much Interest In the work
of the local players, who were Encell,
Emery and - Krug, against Wolf, Vorhets
Two of the series of games were played
In the afternoon and three In the evening.
Larger Crowd la Evening.
In the evening the erowd waa very much
larger than that of the afternoon, and
more enthusiasm waa manifested toward
the bowlers, Omaha's team, of course, be
ing given the preference. The evening
crowd was conspicuous because of the large
number of women who were present. They
proved admirable supporters of the sport
and worthily championed the cause of the
