OICLAHOMA CITY. Okl., March 23-(Speclal.)-All
the hard luck oomtng to
any team In one spring training season
has been crowded Into the first week for
the Omahas and It looks as If the re

Work the first three days was handi
capped by a regular desert sandstorm,
which flllod the eyes of the players, pep
pered their faces until raw and put the
men In anything but an agreeable frame
of mind. Then finally when the high
wind and blowing sand was driven out
the factor In the chase was a norther
bringing with It rain and sleet and caus
ing the players to keep off the field
Thursday afternoon and all day -Friday.
.Added to these discomforts, the manage
ment of the park where the team Is
working was In a chaotlo condition be
cause of law suits and a receivership,
and when the Rourkes got here no prepa
rations had been made by the park peo
ple; the diamond was as It had been
abandoned last season: the water system
supplying shower baths at the club house
and water to wet down the diamond was
out of repair, compelling the players to
walk a mile and a half to their hotel be
fore they could get out of their dust
laden uniforms, bathe and feel like human
It was not until Thursday that the
water system was repaired, and even then
the players did not get to use tlio show

the visitors feel as mean as possiblo theso
physical Inconveniences were augmented
by the robbery of the club house Tues
day night by boys, who cleaned out
something like $160 worth of gloves, shoes,
bats and other personal effects of the
players, In many instances equipment
made to order which could not be re
placed at any price.

Profiting by experiences of his early days
as a base ball magnate. Pa has taken
particular pains to have rules strictly en
forced concerning gambling and drink
ing, and he says he never saw a squad
more free of these things than that ho
has with him this spring. Occasionally a
small game of cards Is Indulged In to
whllo away the hours until bed time, but
the stakes are held to a 10-ecnt limit and
thete Is no drinking whatsoever. Not
only are the players temperate by choice,
but by compulsion as well. While tho
time was, and that since prohibition, when
liquor was sold In Oklahoma City aa
freely as In wet territory, at the present
time the Oklahoma capital is suffering a
terrible drouth by reason of the sitting
of a special grand Jury and investiga
tions being carried on by the legislature
lu session here. Under these conditions
the price of suds is E0 cents per bottle
and corn Juice 25 cents per taste too
steep for a poor base ball player, espe

ON TEACUP FULL OF FUEL
One of the best ways to get an idea
of the tremendous power and economy
of a perfect ball-bearing motor, coupled
with an efficient system of carburctlon.
Is to work out the fuel consumption Into
small figures that really mean something.
People talk In gallons, but actually think
In plntB and cupftils. Hence the Brlggs
Detrolter company, which manufactures
the ball-bearing Detrolter. In a series of
tests has established the fact that this
economical enr can average two and a
half miles on a pint of fuel or over a
mile to the cupful. The full force of theso
figures Is felt when one stops to consider
that a Detrolter, though a very moderate
weight car, yet with flvo passengers tips
the scales at more than a ton, A fow
drops of gasoline can start and move a
loud that two horses would strain at.

Schuyler Brltton, the new president of
