High School Smoke
stack is No More
The bli smokestack of tho Omaha
High tchoo!, the last relic o the old
building on Capitol hill, crumpled to
the ground In a maas of debris yesterday
afternoon at 2 o'clock.
The. work Of demolishing the ataclc was
carried on by the Harte contracting firm,
which Is erecting the new building. Early
In the week the alack was split way down
by cutting out a amall wedge of bricks
on each side. A kIow fire was then
built at the bottom and the heat gradu
ally parted the mortar holding the bricks
together, cauulng the stack to collapse.
When the old building was torn down
laat spring thj stack was the only part
of the building left standing. The con
structlon of the new building went on
nevertheless, but as .t is now completed
as far as the basement and the first
floor the old smokestack had to be re
moved. The stack was about 1S3 feet high,

MondaA January t, ha' been decided
upon by the tournament committee of the
Omaha Bowling association as the open
ing date for the annual city bowling tour
nament. Francisco, the Metropolitan and
the Oarlow alleys at South Omaha have
been rhoaen as the official tournament
Secretary Kdwln M. Tracy has circu
lated entrance blanks among the bowlers
of Omaha, Fouth Omaha and Council
Bluffs, and from returns received at
present the tournament will be by far
the largest of Its kind ever held In this
city. This is due, however, moutly to the
fact that the tourney will be operated
on the handicap basis, whereby the good,
the near good and the poor bowler will
be placed on a par with each other. The
Individual handicap has not yet been de
cided upon and a committee of four Is
working on a system which will be
equitable to all. ;
The handicap of a five-man team, will
be. decided by taking the average of the
team for the season. All teams with an
average of I.SA will roll at scratch and
all teams below that number will have
added to thetr number enough pins to
bring It up to t,K0 for three games. Three
games in all will be rolled by each team.
At present It is certain that fifty-five
five-men teams will be entered In the
tourney and at least 100 Individual bowl
srs. The double teams are estimated at
about 1 entries. The reason for the
large number of entries this year Is due
to the handicap system. This system was
adopted after a hot dispute at the Isst
meeting. The older and more experi
enced bowlers hung out for a nonhsndl-
rap tourney, but the majority were
against' It.
Ta Flaal Arruitmctli. , .
Neat (Sunday, December 17. final ar
rangements will be made for tbe tourna
ment, . The entrance fee and the prlae
money will be decided upon. The priti
money this year, it is asserted, will be
larger than at any city tournament ever
held in Omaha. The entire entrance fee
money will be turned over for prises
and maintenance of the alleya. Tha cost
for keeping this alleys in good shape will
be comparatively amall, and the remain
der will go entirely for prises.
All the team rolling will be done on
the Francisco alleya at Fourteenth and
Harney at reel a, because of the fact thut
there are eight regulation alleys and all
have been approved by the American
Bowling congress, under which rules the
tournament will be held. A representa
tive of, the American Howling congress
will be In attendance at the tourney and
will measure ami put the alleys In tour
nament shape. The entire eight alleys
will be used by eight teams, all rolling at
the same time. The system of uslnti
all tha alleys by as many teams has
been adopted by the American Bowling
congress s the boet system and will be
tried out for tha first time In Omaha at
the coming tourney.
lagles at Metroaalttaa.
The singles will be rolled at the Metro
politan alleya and the doubles at Oar
low's alleys In South Omhaa. The ob
ject of dividing the tourney into three
alleys is done In order that the tourna
ment will not last over six days. It was
planned at first to use Just the Fran
cisco alleys, but the large number of en
tries made It compulsory that three
alleys be used. '

In selecting an all-etern foot bull
team Coach Yost of Michigan wrote at

tackle and captain:
"Hhonka of Nebraska and Frank of
Minnesota are placed at tackles. In all
the cames this season tho big captain
of the Cornhuskeis hss shown his worth
The cry was mado that Khonka hud not

thotte who saw tbe westerner rip up Mich

that Hhonka mould rip any line. No
player ever rlpied Michigan before, but
bhonka nsver hesitated. As for Frank
of Minnesota, he has shown great form
this season. The yards gained over the
Gopher tackle have been fw and thae
well qualified to Jude claim he Is the

The Inter-state high school basket ball
tournment. which wilt be held under
the auspices of the University of Omaha
gives promise of being the biggest event
of the year In basket ball In this sec
tion of the country. The meet will be
held the latter part of February, and
Is open to all high school teams, though
the management of the meet is working
mainly for the Iowa and Nebraska
There have been state meets before, but
the idea of extending it to an Inter
state affair Is an Innovation, which If It
proves successful this year will become
an nnnual event, and will be enlarged
to take In 'any high school In the Mis
souri valley, which wishes to have a
representation. This year's tournament
Is strictly an Invitation affair allhlgh
schools being Invited to participate.
The proposlUon Is meeting with much
enthusiasm wherever It ' has been
broached. In, the smaller towns In Iowa
great Interest has been shown, because
they feel that in this way they will have

dribbling game as soon as acnooi opens
In the fall. In thia way teams are often
developed that Tiave the edge on the

Because basket ball generally is a los

Cups and trophies will be given for
the teams winning first, second and third

C. A. Jensen, the big heavyweight
policeman wrestler Is coming back Into
the mat game. He secretly has been
getting himself Into shape at his home,'
where he has fitted up a gymnasium. The
fact that Jensen . has been preparing to
get back Into the game came out at the
wrestling match Friday night, when he
let slip a little statement which caused
a few of the knowing ones to wake up.
Jensen until last summer wsa well
known among the grapplers of this sec
tion. He was taken sick early last sum
mer and had to retire from the game
until he regained his strength and condl
tlon. That he Is In good condition Is
certain from the fact that he weighs five
pounds more than he ever weighed be
fore and is as hard as nails. Prior to
his sickness Jensen was reputed to be
a comer among the heavyweights, hav
ing made a good showing against Wester
gaard after being In the game but a short
while. He has taken on such men
Bill Hokuf, Paul Domke, Farmer Burns
and several other one and got the best
of the argument In many instances.
When asked whether he was going to
come back Into the game Jensen said he
was preparing himself for that purpose
and declared he never felt better in his
life. After a few more weeks of hard
training, he said, he will be prepared to
take on any of the bunch. Jensen Is
well known In Omaha, having been on
the police force for several years. He
s a fearless and quiet man and that he
knows something about the game ran be
testified to by Beveral had men who have
been quieted by him at police head
