The Happy Hollow club defeated the
Omaha Crockery company's team In a
practice game on the former's grounds,
Saturday afternoon by the score of 19 to 5.
Both teams fielded poorly at times and
showed lack of practice. The club men
bunched their hits and got them at op
portune times, while the visitors wore
unable to get hits whert they were needed.
Eastman made a sensational one-handed
catch of the ball, which looked like It was
going to be a Texas leaguer.
Next Saturday the club team plays the
fast Omaha Rubber company's team a
practice game and will then be . ready to
open the season May. 14. with the Mazep
pas. A rivalry exists between these two
teams and as the Maxeppas are a fast

The Key to the Situation Bee Want Ads!
The automobile which made
and holds the transcontinental
record is unequaled as a traveler
upon American roads.
Four years ago a Model H six-cylinder Franklin
set the ocean-to-ocean record, and its time has never
been equaled or approached. In fifteen days, two
hours and twelve minutes it covered the distance
from San Francisco to New York.
That achievement stands, and has stood, a con
stant challenge to all.
The transcontinental run, in anything like record
time, is the greatest of all automobile touring tests.
It presents every known type of difficulty, from mud
Ante tr fiifpn mountain ftraHes. from ttwIpr nf isnnd to
lhat the rranKiin mattes tne iastest touring time
everywhere on American roads is due not only to
the power of its engine but to the resiliency of con
struction. Resiliency gives not only riding comfort and
makes the automobile a smooth and easy traveler,
but the more resilient an automobile is the stronger
and lighter it can be.
Franklin Model H is the highest example of six
cylinder engineering. There is a peculiar charm in
its six-cylinder smoothness and flexibility. It takes
the hills as only a perfect six-cylinder can. It is ex
ceptionally quiet. There is a complete absence of
the jarring and jolting; you feel no vibration. It is
difficult to realize that a big, powerful automobile can
be guided and maneuvered with such freedom and
ease. It rides like the finest carriage. It answers
any tests to which it is put on hills or levels.
