3-S Mutt's Work Was a Trifle Lumpy Drawn for The Bee by "Bud" Fisher TRTC OMAILA SUNDAY BEE: NOVEMBER 3, 1912. TilV'-rHe U.TTCsNT --Wtt6 SPoTcWt 40 CAfcOUWl BOTH I fOfArT'WN THGN,utt:,r J f ( ' ' 'O' " J '"Ift " j Judgments HK Baso Ball Players fraternity, T recently organized, did not come Into being prematurely. Events of the last tew weeks tend to emphasise the demand for a players protective and defensive organ ization. Whether this one Is laid out on brood, aggressive grounds, we do not bs yet know, but If not the chances are tt will arise to the needs. David Fultz, former star player, is president, olid Christy Mathewaon, Ed Sweeney, Mike Doolan, Ty Cobb, vice presidents; Jako paubert, secretary. One of the chief promoters of this fraternity Is Charles Webb Murphy, albeit It Is furtherest from his Intention to be. But Just such as slnlty as Murphy has displayed In his dealings with Chance, Tinker, Brown and .others. Is the Impetus such an or ganization needs to make It go. Why was tt ever formed? Because the players felt they were getting and would con tinue to get a square deal from all the magnates. A good deal has been sold of the need for. stringent rules protecting rights of owners and a good deal has been done to provide & system of such rules, but now the time has coma for a Uttlo stringency the other way. And It certain concessions are not voluntarily mode they will be forced, for ball play ers are not getting a square deal under the rules when a person like Murphy can exercise absolute authority against Btvery wish, will and welfare of the game at large), such as he Is exercising over Chance and others who have made htm In base ball. Whenever base ball law permits owners to put and hold players In bondage, then it Is time for base ball law to begin to tremble for Its integrity. The players showed onco what could bo done by concerted action and they are v In much better situation today to, demon strate their power than they were then. Let somo asslntno upstart drive thorn hard enough and1 see what "will happen. We cannot believe, however, that tho other men at the head of tho game, such as Ban Johnson, Comlskey, Herrmann, Dreyfuss and others will sit by ancTsee ne or two unscrupulous men get past with this kind of conduct. No,M says McQraw, 'Til not trade off Bnodgrass because he muffed that J30.000 fly. He'll be right there next Tyeor; he's a good player," Certainly. It might have been lldrray or anybody else who muffed tho same fly. Besides, do you happen to recall the evolution of one Mr. MerkleT Star ball players are not fired for muffing flies, even at $30,000 apiece. There Is something In the argument of Messrs. Rourke and Holland that It does' no good to fix a salary limit and then ignoro It. Salary limits have their strong points, also their weak ones. Tho way to determine the balance of power 1b not to make a dead letter of the rule. Compare Comlskey's giving lEd Walsh an extra $1,500 for pitching his team to victory In that last game with' Murphy's treatment of Chance, Brown, Tinker, Hoftnan, Pfelstcr, et at Exeunt Chance, Tinker, Brown, Sheck rd and possibly Schulto. Can't you see those.' Chi fans storm the battlements tor Xdmisslon to the West Side park next leason? The Omaha II!?h school team upheld the reputation of the local gridiron war riors yesterday by winning by a decisive score from their old rivals at Lincoln. Tinker says he turned down the Job of managing the Cubs. In which Joe dis played that good, hard sense for which ho Is noted. Judging from tho score, the Cornhusk ers ,ran Into a harder proposition than they wero looking for when they went against Missouri yesterday. Now we know winter Is coming. Herr Stanislaus Zbyszko (every "z" In its place) has thrqwn down the annual gauntlet to Colonel Ootch. Why didn't Murphy get rid of that rubbish long ago, then he might have had a ball team in 1906, 1906, 1509. etc? Brother Dave says that In his quest for corncobs some piker tried to run In s a ringer on him with popcorn cobs. It's a wee bit early to make predic tions, but If you don't mind, keep your lamps on Des Moines next year. Nebraska City put Itself on the foot ball map by the way Its representatives ran ill over the South Omaha lads. Johnny KHng clings to the Idea that a billiard ball In the hands Is worth two base bolls In the bush-leagues. Perhaps If Pueblo were to break back Into the Western league It might raise the embargo from old Izzy. i Crelghton struck a tartar In the St ' Louis aggregation, as the score of yes terday's game shows. All Roger Bresnahan wishes to know Is whether a legal contract has any standing In court. A ball player may be a free agent with' out being able to cash In his freedom.

BELMONTS MEET M0NM0UTHS Sherman Avenue Merchant and the Spalding Will Officially Open Farrell Park, Near Benson, This Afternoon, Today the Superiors will lino up against the soldiers at Fort Omaha. This game ought to be a good one, as neither team has dropped a game this season. The soldiers have been practicing hard for this event Every day last week they were out on tho campus for three hours. They figure that end runs and forward passes will upset the Superiors and they aro going to work them fast and furous. Scrimmage work with tho Omaha high school team has put them in excel lent shnpo and as they are going into this struggle determined to trample the Superior colors In the dust, a hard fought contest la predicted.

Neither squad was ablo to roll up a point The reserves aro well drilled, so the heavier Papllllonltes will have their hands full If they handle them. , Gridiron Notes. Hereafter a tamo will be slaved at Farrell park every Sunday. Hanger, one of our deputy sheriffs. plays on the Waterloo team. John Byerlv Is Dioklmr ud a Bnuad to play Valley, Neb., on election day. Valley wants a game with the Buner- tors. Waterloo walloped them 13 to 0. Today the Waterloo town team plays the town team of llostigs. Neb., at Hast ings. MoCormlok of the Columbians received s fractured hip In tho Soldier-Columbian DOUl The Clifton Hill Athletics have changed their name to the appropriate one of Tigers. Now the Joe Smith have secured Ath. letlo park In Council Bluffs for their battles. Julius rtachman umpired like a real veteran during the Superlor-Monmouth Pork struggle. Thanksgiving day the Monmouth Parks will have a special train to travel to Valley, Neb., In. Valley would llko to arrange a game with the Superiors, but they don't like to play on Omaha soil. Next Sunday tho Superiors will tangle with the town team from Missouri Valley at Fort Omaha. The Belmonts say they are going to make the Monmouth Parks ramble to day If they want the large end. For games with the Columbians address Stanley Lacey, 1003 South Thirtieth avenue, or telephone Harney 2CM. Lieutenant Karl Truesdell, the manager of the Fort Omaha aggregation, expects to put a crimp In the Superiors today. Still Prof. William Byerly, the cap tain of tho Superiors, Is not at all san guine about this team winning" em all. Sevoral 'out-of-town foot ball devotees wandered In to see tho 6iiperlor-Mon-m"Jih Park battle. A party of ten came in from Valley. George Hatreman says he never wants to see the town of Wiener. Neb., acaln, but he would like to have the Wlsner crew play his Belmont eleven here. The recently organized Omaha Tigers and the Klmwood Parks will clash to day at Farrell park. Their game will be the first of a scheduled double-header. Missouri Valley will probably come here padded to the brim. It Is their ambition to trim the Superiors. Madam Rumor has it that they have secured one man from Wlsner, Neb. At the last moment the Missouri Valley team cancelled a game scheduled with the Defenders in order to take on the fastest organization In Council Bluffs, the Joe Smiths. The Council Bluffs !.ds who claim they will smother the Superiors when the op portunity Is afforded them, will go to Missouri Valley, la., today and do their utmost to wipe them off of the foot ball map. They have one of the strong est team ever mustered In Iowa. FAYORS ELIMINATION HEATS Sedwiok Would Have International Race last Over Two Days. ONE CAR FOB EACH COUNTRY Ilia; BOO-MUe Hare at Indianapolis Conducted So that In Finals Only One Car from lCncU Coun try Competes, INDIANAPOLIS, Ind., Nov.- 2.-lntoad of the usual one-day affair, Indianapolis Is to have a two-day speedway meet noxt year. In addition to tho annual 600-mlle race, C W, Sedwlck, the manager, hopes to Btage an International contest. Mr. Sedwlck's Idea Is to permit only ono car from a country to compote and, to pick that car by means of elimination trials. A foreign car owned in this coun try and driven by nn American will not bo eligible to compete In this race. The ontrant must bo a maker In a foreign country and tho driver must be from tho other sldo to get In as a foreign entry. It is thought that tho G00-ml!e nice Itself will' attract bona fide entries from makers In France, acrmany, Italy and England, and that America uIbo will bo well represented. This would give Sod wlck plenty of talent. Tho Pougcots, Itenaults, Panhards and Darracqs from France would have to fight It out In tho I trials to see which would represent France In tho match; tho Henz and Opel might battle to come In from Germany; the Flat and Isotta could put up a warm argument as Italy's representatives. As for tho American champion, the qualify ing round for this honor would be ajraoo In Itself. After the qualifying rounds It Is" sug gested that the four or flvo canj bo brought togothsr In a final match, which would ts either at 100 or 2CC miles, and with a purse that would approach In size tho first prize In Uie 600-mlle race. With such a field there Is no reason why tho match raco should not be fully as good. If not better than the five-century grind, which has become a' regular affair. Tho speedway management has an nounced that It will not receive any entries for the C00-mlle race until Janu ary 1, While a number of tentative en tries havo been mode, nothing has been booked officially. Tho raco Itself will bo open to cars of 450 cubic Inches piston displacement and Under, whereas up till now tho limit has been COO. This will encourage American makers and elim inate such big cars as tho Flat and Mercedes which ran last year. DE 0R0 TO MEET SHERMAN FOR POOL CHAMPIONSHIP NEW YORK. Nov. 2. Tho first world's championship pool match to bo played In New York In nearly two years will be held at Doyle's academy, when Alfredo Do Oro, the champion, will dofend the title against on old rival, Frank Sher man of Washington. Do Oro has named the nights of November 6, 7 and 8, the match thus beginning and ending In elec tion week. For the first time in a chal lenge match In this city tho new "open break" will bo tried out Bach frame will consist of only fourteen balls, the fifteenth being left on tho tablo, and not tried for until the other fourteen are racked. Tills stylo of break removes much of tho tedium of safety play, per mits continuous runs, without so many safety Interruptions, and cuts down the time Tho match will be 600 balls each night for tho new championship emblem and a purse of M. GRAND ISLAND COLLEGE OUTCLASSES PERU NORMAL PEltU, Neb., Nov. i Special Tele gram.) Grand Island college defeated Peru State normal on Normal field in a stubbornly-contested game, 18 to 0. Two touchdowns were made In the frist quar ter and one In the second, and the visit ors with a substantial advantage In weight gained consistently on line plays and forward passes. Carlson and Menlk were the chief ground gainers. Peru put up a scrappy defense and prevented the collegians from scoring In the second half, though the fourth quarter opened with the ball on Peru's one-yard line. Captain Hoc! I Sims of Peru played a star gome, carrying the ball for good gains and executing a number of brilliant tackles., Karns of Omaha refereed the game. SHERIDAN HIGH KEEPS LAURELS IN TIGHT GAME SHERIDAN, Wwo., Nov. !.-(Bpeclal Telegram.) Sheridan High school, trl state champions last year, today won hteir third strlght victory of the sea son by defeating tho Cheyenne squad by, a score of 33 to 0.

Local Tennis Cracks BOMBARDIER WELLS COMING English Heavyweight Champion to Sail for America Soon. IS AFTER FAME AND MONEY lie Hopes to Strengthen the Impres sion Followers of lloxln- on Tlala Side Have of Ills Prowess. NEJW YORK, Nov. 2. Bombardier' Wells, England's heavyweight champion, has an nounced that ho Is to sail In a week or two for this country. Ho hopes to be ablo to strengthen the Impression follow ers of boxing on this side of tho water have of his prowess, and, of course, gather In some money. Waen he makes his appearance hero ho will find plenty of work to do, provided he does not de mand more than his services arn worth: On the eve of his departure for. this country Wells was given a royal send off, which Included a banquet at which he was lauded In glowing terms for his skill and sportsmanship. Quito possibly his opinion of his worth was considerably enhanced by all this praise, and ho may be disposed to make capital of It when negotiating for, matches over here. But while England's champion Is a fine boxer he Is not likely to work much havoo among the men he will be called upon to meet Unless he has gained In stamina to a surprising degree during his stay In England he will not be a good bet with any one of several of our burly white hopes who can take a punch as well as give one, even If they can't box much. Many Ulir Battle. This winter will see many battles be tween big fellows known as "whits hopes." The various heavies wlHTIiave at tained prominence are laying plnns to come to this city fon the coming season. Perhaps by next spring one will havo outdistanced all his fellows and be wor thy of a championship match. AI Palzer, who heads Uio band at pres ent, Is back In training. Apparently the big fellow viewed with alarm the rapid strides- taken by his rival, Luther Mc Carthy, lately, and made haste to smooth things over with his manotfer bo that he could resume action. Now that Palzer Is back in the ring again an opportunity may soon bo hod to finally classify him. His manager plans to advance his stand ard with a rush as soon as he has had a chance to get hts hand In again with a few easy matches. All restrictions ore to be taken off tho hitherto proscribed list of opponents, and he, will be open to meet even the champion himself. Such Is the announced policy that Is to bo fol lowed, and If It Is adhered to some In teresting bouts are sure to result.

The navy has boon doing ex cellently at this game for the last three years, and this year the schedule has been so arrangod as to test out tho midship- inon against tho strongest fives of the country. The other fall and winter Bjxirts In which the midshipmen will compete with outside teams are gymnastics, wrestling, swimming and fencing. In gymnastics and wreutllng the showing of the mid shipmen during the last threo seasons has been remarkable, and it can bo fairly claimed for them that their record along thfse lines exceeds that of any othor Institution, Fencing Is a sport In which the midshipmen naturally desire to excel, and they have a splendid record, having a number of ttinos won first team or In dividual honors at the annual tourna ment of the intercollegiate Fencing as sociation. The midshipmen only took up swimming as a competitive sport last year and have done poorly In It so far, but they expect to make a better show ing this year.
