'"m-e-. wi.ile as a rule the bvet !
of feeling exists between .he men In the
pres. box and the magnate.. It 1, largely
because the nun In the free. box ak f..r'
little and are contented, or at Wast, put up j
with little. Is it not about time th.it they
ero being recornlx.-d T Where w ould hae I
till be today but for them and their !
psp-a-,7 Many men are rich In finance ',
and conspicuous before the public today
amply because of the man In the press
box. Tet. solemn as this fact Is. some of
the men In the game seem to he afraid to
admit it and some go out of their way to
add difficulty Instead of the facility to
the work of the "war correspondent."
President Lynch of the National league,
for iastance. makes the silly ruling that
Bo staff photographer may take "motion"
pictures on the field. Where would Lynch
be today but for this same staff photo
grapher and this same staff correspondent.
A there is little Cubby Murphy and two
op three other lilllput'ans of the business,
made, absolutely, by the man In the box,
constantly doing something to nag him.
Come out of it. men, and be men. Of
oourr-e. in the Western league we find no
urn ground f0r complaint, or course not.
The layman little realises what a big
prise fight, such as we have not had in
this country for many years, but axe to
have when Jeffries and Johnson meet,
means from a financial standpoint. In
fact it has little comparative meaning
'aside from that. It Is estimated now
that ir),0ro will be bet on this fight,
making the paltry sum of 1108,000 put up
M the pot between the combatants seem
like a mere bagatelle. It Is a glgnntlc
business enterprise, business of the sort
that endures by the sufferance, of the law
and the people. Tet the sporting side of
the thing holds a charm for most people
and the event will be watched with
keener Interest, perhaps, than has followed
any other prtae right In the history of this
, country, not even excepting- that of Corbett
ana Bulllvan. This, of course. Is due to
the fart that one man la white and the
other black. As to the outcome few sport
ing men outside of the coterie of per
ioral followers of each man Is willing to
venture too fixed opinions, the general
view being that Jeffs success depends
almost entirely on his airtllty to "come
tack." If he can get Into hla old form,
then, the majority believe, he can whip
the colored man. And if he does get
'down to his old form It will toe one of the
niarrvls of modern athletics. Ail his
trainers say he can and will.
"What do you think of the Western
league race?" is a common question Just
Bow. Frankly, we don't know Just what to
think, except that It probably, will be a
good one. As -to the relative positions of
the teams at the and of tha season, the
man who can bring hlmhelf to hazard a
guess en that at least has some courage
or confidence in his power to work riddles. !
It la entirely presumptuous for anyone to
make a prediction at this time. Most of the
teams in the league are largely worked
ewer since last year and the majority of
the men are unknown qualities, so are aome
of toe managing forces. We believe, as to
Omaha, that President Rourke has collected
a good team, most of which he had last
year and that when It strikes its gait,
when the pitchers get their arms and Hal
ley's comet passes away and the club re
ttixns from this first mountain trip al
ways a hard proposition It will swing Into
a strong pace and keep going that way
the rest of the season. We believe several
ether owners have strong teams. We hope
Omaha has the strongest, but we are will
- tng to wait before saying so.
High school lads are going in for out-
doer athletics with a vim this year, and
art taking up all branches of sport, each
In lu season. The football season was most
Biioceaaful. then came the basket ball
season with a strong team to represent the
school, and now, track athletloa arc oc
cupying the minds of the students. The
way the athletics are now conducted seem
to promote a btgher grade of scholarship
among the boys. Thy do not seem to like
to have tha fact published that they are
unable to play on an athletic team be-
eauae they are behind their studies. The
upshot la that ail buckle down to their
work with greater energy than before.
The 'tvs that Omaha Is likely to be on
the fa I map will be welcomed. Hut why
boutiii it be there? Th city is a cen
tral point In all forms of sportsmanship
as well as business, and to leave It off th's
new map would be a most Incongruous
thing to do. If Mr. Olenn Curtis comes
here with his fleet of air vessels he will
find as fine brand of air. hot or cold, as
he can find anywhere, and a general west
era breexlneas to make htm feel at home
all the time he is here.
Did you notice that when the National
commission announced it would suspend
the Kllng reinstatement for one year un
less the recalcitrant catcher came to taw
In three days, he came? Kllng made a
monkey of the commission and even It
seems to hare realised that fact at the last.
The power of publicity Is on trial In the
preparations for the Jeffries-Johnson fight,
for the saka of the power we luve it
femes clear, but If It does not accomplish
all that la expected of It It should be laid
to the fact that the play has been overworked.
The tit. Louis Cardinals appear on paper
to be gratly strengthened, and. they are,
1 too. They have been losing most of their
games, but tbey have been playing them
with the lenders. If we are not bojly mis
taken Brtnahan will be making even them
la some bt-fore the season Is over.
Oom on, Furchner, and give us some of
that you handd ua lust year when you

NEW TORK. April 30 If reporU that
are coming out of the mid'lle west are not
too hltihly tinted with optimism Klg.n. 111.,
will be the scene of a big automotive road
race late this summer or in early autumn.
It is hlr.t-d that the event will be the
glamour of the national stork chassis race.
Lowell. Mas., conducted this contest laat
year and was scheduled to do so again.
The automobile club of that city defaulted
on the 1?10 schedule of the American Auto
mobile association. This leaves a vacant
date on the motor racing calendar, and It
is probable that the race will be staged at
The Chicago Motor club Is behind the pro
ject. Plans are being pushed rapidly and
it Is expected that a definite date will be
announced shortly. An arrangement has
been reached. It Is understood, between
the Chicago Motor club and the business
men of F.lgln. The BTlgin people have
guaranteed to raise a fund of $15.0.0. This
Is necessary for the conducting of the

city. The courts are being laid Just In
front of the club house.
Improvements are also being made on
the golf links, which will put them In a
class with the ether links In the city.
The tees are being raised and the greens
are being sodded.
New application for membership In the
club have been received during the last
few days and a substantial growth Is
looked for before the real season Is on.
Assurance has ben received by officials
of the club from Tree-dent Wattles cf the
street car company that a perfect fifteen
minute service will be Inaugurated between
the city and the perk beginning after Sun
day. This arrangement has been eagerly
sought by the club and will Improve the
facilities for reaching the resort to such
an extent as to encourage the members
to spend more time there.
Next Friday evening a smoker will be
held at the club house for the members
and Invited guests.

Aero Club of Omaha Beceirei Com
munication Proposing Meet
The fact that Omaha is on the aeronaut
ical map Is illustrated by a message that has
bet n received by the Omaha Commercial
club from Jerome S. Franclalll, manager
for Glenn Curtiss, asking if Omaha is in
terested in arranging an '..vlatlon meet.
The matter has been referred to Colonel W.
A. Glasaford, president of the recently
formed Aero club of Nebraska, and will
doubtless be considered at a meeting of
the organization some time next week.
Chicago Motor club has received assur
ances that the money will be forthcoming
st the proper time.
It Is sa.d that a wealthy resident has
offered to organize a stock company and
raise the 215.000 If the business men fail to
make good. There does not appear to be
any doubt In the minds of the Chlcagoans
that the sum will be raised. The Idea of
having a big national automobile event held
right at Klgln's front door pleases the
natives. Then there are the financial
phases of the situation to be considered.
The monetary gain to a town or city oc
oasloned by a big road race Is no small
Oatlook Is Brlakt.
While the plans for the event are as yet
In the preliminary stage, a bright outlook
Is at hand. That the Chicago Motor club
will try to make the Elgin road race su
perior to the Cob cup event conducted last
year by the Chicago Automobile club over
the Lowell-Crown Folnt course is a fore
gone 'conclusion. The organisations are
rivals in Chicago's motor world. An at
tempt will be made to make the Elgin
meeting much larger than the Cope cup
It has been announced that the trophy
for the big race will be known as the
Elgin cup The proposed course over
which the races will be held Is eight
and a half miles to the lap. Estimates for
putting the course in condition for auto
mobile speeding rate the job at tS.500. The
services of road supervisors have been
volunteered and the city of Elgin will
donate steam rollers, horses and other road
preparing accessories. It is estimated that
the meeting will call for an outlay of
Trouble Over Cope Event.
While the Chicago Motor club is pro
gressing with Its Elgin race the Chicago
Automobile club is having trouble with
the Cope cup event. Just when the race
will be staged Is problematical. The Indian
apolls speedway will make a bid for the
event. It Is said. The Chicago . promoters
have given up the idea of constructing a
motordrome this year. However, It is
stated that such a speed circuit will surely
be built next year. Epeaking on the sub
ject President Cobe of the club recently
The identity of the promoters of the
propoc-ed motordrome must remain a secret.
I am satisfied, however, that Uiey Intend
putting up a track that will be a credit to
Chicago and one which will afford the best
kind of motor racing. They now are or
ganizlng their company, and when I say
there will be no speedway racing here this
year I do not mean that work on the track
will not be started. As soon as things are
In shape, which will be before long. It is
said the promoting company will start Its
operations and even before fall the work
should be In such shape as to satisfy every
one of the seriousness of the intentions of
the people back of the enterprise. Next

Well Kites Driver Will IIktc
Sixty Horsepower Aatomobtle.
NEW YORK. April SO. Herbert H. Lytle.
the well known automobile racing driver,
who will be seen at the wheel of the
American motor car products this season,
Is reported to have made recently several
unusual speed trials. Driving the stock
roadster speed model on the Indianapolis
Speedway Lytle was clocked at the rate of
eighty-six miles an hour. He was tuning
up the ear for coming races when the re-
mtti'aLl speed burst was recorded.
Lytle car has a sixty-horsepower
e'.u. ' l equipped with the underslung
t:bi cnaracteristlc of the company's
upa With Lytle at the wheel of the
Arr.nrlcn, a formidable combination Is
entered In the year's motor car speeding.
He Is one of the pioneer racing drivers In
tlits country. Lytle declared recently that
he has fully recovered from the accident
In the Long Is'.and Stock Car derby last
autumn, when hla mechanician was killed
and he suffered severe Injuries.
Ppeaklng of hla choice of a car. Lytle
said: "When I began to look about for a
connection for the ISIS season I had decided
that the car I would drive would be the
American if satisfactory arrangements
could be made. In arriving at this de
eision X was governed by two tilings. One
of these is the fact that I have never
encountered a car which I would consider
the mechanical superior of my present
mount. The other is the underslung frame.
In this I believe that the builders have
eliminated the most daagerous factor to
racing the tendency of a car to skid and
upset al the turns.
"Bucoessful racing does not depend upon
speed alone, for if the car comes to grief
whatever speed records It may have made
before the break are lost utterly. And If
this Is true, the building of a car which
can successfully compete In races does not
mean the Installation simply of a high
powered engine, but as many safeguards
as posilble for the car itself and Ms oc

FOR MOTOR CARS COMING
Charles J. Glidaea Says Cewatry Will
Soes Have at aernir leewt Highway
from Coast to Coast.
NEW YORK, April 30 Chsrles J. Glld
den, donor of the Glldflen tour trophy, who
has toured through nearly every country
on the globe, believes that the United j
Bute will have one of the most magnlfl- i
cert motor highways on earth, which will
extend from the Atlantic to the Pacific
ocean before many years. Such a high
way, h argues, is boend to come. 1
When my dream Is a reality you will
find our rich men who are now going
abroad will pay to view the beauties of
their home country first," said Mr. Olid-,
Just Imagine with what pride an Amer
ican could look back over a journey across
the continent. Every mile of the S.OOO-mlle
trip would unfold wonders such as only
this country can boast of. Each day he
would pass through Interesting country,
and each day the panorama would be dif
ferent from that of the day before.
What an Ideal tour it would be to leave
New Tork and pass over the historic roads
of New Jersey, then through Pennsyl-
anla, with Its oil wells and coal mines for
exploration, and so on through the middle
west, over the plains, to finally pleroe the
Rockies to the Golden West. With a good
highway, what a magnificent tour that
would be, I'll tell you there Is nothing In
any country that can equal It; but the
trouble Is our American motorist does not
seem to take the time to look at the In
teresting places of his home country, yet
would tour an entire day to look at some
'sight" abroad that is not neaiiy as pic
turesque as those at home,
GREAT CONTEST 131 OCTOBER
Aatomobtle Clab of America Offers
Grand Prtse Gold Cop.
NEW YORK, April 30. Charles E. Fors-
dick, secretary to the Automobile Club ot
America, announced the other day that
the Kaiserllcher Automobile club had ca
bled an entry of three Benz cars for tne
contest on October 15 for the Automobile
Club of America's grand prize gold cup.
The cable was addressed to William K-
Vanderbllt, jr., president of the Motor
Cups Holding company, which will con
duct the contest.
The 1S10 lace for the Automobile club's
grand prize gold cup will be the second
contest for this International trophy, the
first race having been run at Savannah
on Thanksgiving day, 106, when Lewis
Wagner was victorious with a Flat racer.
After the settlement of the controversy
between the Automobile Club of America
and the Amer.can Automobile association
In 1K6, It was agreed in the peace agree
ment signed on September li, lwK, that
both the grand prise gold cup and the
Vanderbllt cup were to be deeded to an
Independent racing association to be con
trolled by the Long Island motor park
way. The Motor Cups Holding company
was organised by men Identified with the
parkway to become the donee of the cups
and W. K. Vanderbllt, Jr., president of
the parkway, was elected president of the
Motor Cups Holding company.
One of the conditions named In the peace
agreement was that the donee of the cups
was to promote a race each year for eacn
cup. It was not deemed expedient to ar
range for a grand prize race last y
because there were no great road races
abroad and it was feared that it would be
impossible to secure enough entries to
make an International race a representa
tive one from tne standpoint of entries and
drivers. It had been rumored for several
months that the Motor Cups Holding com.
pany would organise a grand prise race
tor this ear and Mr. Vanderbllt made
positive announcement a few weeks ago
that a grand prtae race would be run on
October IS over the same circuit of the
Long Inland motor parkway and Nasi
county roads that is to be used for the
Vanderbllt cup race on October 1.
in his announcement of the cabled en
tries from Germany Secretary Forsdlck of
the Automobile club said that these are
the first official entries and will be fol
lowed close '.y by of Ileal announcement of
others, of which advance notifications
have been received. Whlie the Flat com
pany has not made any announcement of
lu intentions regarding the race, It is the
general Impression that the Tuna concern
again will be represented and that It will
defend its custody of the beautiful cup
with a full team uf three cars.
Motor Enthnslaats' Eyes Tmrtied
NEW TORK. April 30. Although the
opening meet of the Indianapolis motor
drome will not be staged until May R-B,
followers of the automobile racing game
are already commenting on the meeting.
The recent racing at the inaugural of the
board speedway at Playa, del Rey, Cal.. has
brought the coming speed events at In
dianapolis before the attention of the mo
toring public The many records estab
lished at Playa del Rey are responsible
for this early Interest Will better time
be made at Indianapolis than was hung
up on the far coast?
It is understood that every effort will
be made at the 1910 opening of the Hoosler
raceway to better the times made at Playa
del Rey. Eighteen events are on schedule
for the first two days' racing. AH the
big drivers in the country wHl compete
and high speed is a foregone conclusion.
Certainly the best drivers and the cars
will be there. The question is clearly up
to the track Itself.
It Is thought that wood Is a far better
speed medium than cement, brick or dirt
Motor car experts tell us that the co
efficient of friction between wood and
rubber is better suited to high speeding
than any other substance. It would seem
that this was proved at the Playa del Rey
meet However, there are those who still
retain faith In the record-breaking possi
bilities of the big motordromes at Atlanta
and Indianapolis. With a good entry list
for the Indianapolis races, some adequate
comparison should be at hand.
The new brick surface of the Indianapolis
track, it Is claimed, is far more suited to
speed than the concrete. For this reason
also, the management believes that better
time will be made than was the case last
year. However, there appears to be a
growing belief in western and middle west
ern automobile circles that the board track
will In time supersede ether typ'is. While
the attendance at Playa del Rey was not
all that could be expecte and the entry
list not the best that could be secured, the
course established its popularity through
out the country by Its worth as a speed
producer. Then another point in its favor
was the cheapnesa of construction. Epeak
ing of the situation recently a well-known
Chicago motorist said:
"Indianapolis has $720,000 Invested In its
two and one-half mile track. It may be
that it Is faster than Playa del Rey, now
that it has Its new brick surface. That
remains to be seen, for the trials last De
cember, held during a bllsxard. should not
be considered aa any criterion. Atlanta's
two-mile track cost In the neighborhood
of $150,000, while Moacovtca scarcely put In
$100,000 out on the coast I believe the new
one-mile circular track will revolutionise
things on a racing way.
"As to the financial results of the Cali
fornia meet Chicago knows nothing. One
day, it waa said, 12,000 people attended and
that was on a Sunday. Indianapolis' big
gest day last summer brought out 44.000.
It is probable that this first racing at
Playa del Key did not show much of a
profit but it Is thought the meet has
firmly established the popularity of the
