made a signed statement to the prose
cutor tonight, giving the names of the
high school boys whom he said had nr
ranged with a physician to perform the
The prosecutor said it was possible the
boys might be prosecuted as accessories
Detectives who sought today to find
the boys whose names were mentioned
yesterday at the Inquest as having been
associated Intimately with the girl, were
unable to find six of them.
In a statement today Superintendent of
Schools Cammack blamed automobiles,
high school fraternities and the attitude
of parents for conditions exposed by the
Zook case. He said that the practice of
students coming to school In automobiles,
which were left standing before the school
house, had a bad. Influence, especially
when the boys took the girls riding. He
also declared that some parents had
turned over to the Bchools tho entire
responsibility of looking after their chll
dren. He advocated the teaching of sex
hygiene and declared that he would ex
pand tho practice of consultations be

C. A. Gunning of Longmont, Colo.,
shooting from tho nineteen-yard mark,
won the eighth annual Western handicap
tournament on the grounds of the Omaha
Gun club yesterday, with a score of IW.
Ills score was tho highest ever made In
tho Western handicap and wns equaled
only by Riley Thompson's perfect score
of 100 In the rOand American.
C. H. Ditto of Klethburg, 111., and P.
J. Cairns, of Elmo, Kan., woro tied for
second and third, with scores ot 93. H.
Crindle of Dewey, Okl., was fourth, with
n score of SS. Ditto shot from nineteen
yards. Calms from eighteen yards and
Grlndle from sixteen yards
None of the professionals,, who woro
shooting for targets only, made as high
a score as the amateurs. C, O. Spencer
wns high for the professionals, with t3
from twenty-two yards. Several 97 and
(Hi scores were made by both amateurs
Tho total number of entries In the
shoot was ISO, which brought the purse
up to J1.10L Two hundred dollars went
to the winner nnd tho men who tied for
second nnd third received H25 each. All
who mado scores of 95 or above received
n share of the prise money. Mr. Gun
ning was presented with n medal for
winning tho handicap and K. C. Carlton

The day was perfect for shooting. The
wind, which caused difficulty Tuesday
and Wcdensday by blowing across tho

shooters were able to make accurate aim
without taking Into consideration the
wind. The extreme heat was a little an
noying, but tho shooters were not hin
All the shooters were enthusiastic over
the tournament, because they hnd a good
time nnd because the tournament wns a
huge success. Never before In a Western
handicap have the scores been so high
and seldom does the big Grand Amer
ican wtlh Its COO and 700 entries register
such scores. oNnrly half tho scores were
In tho 90s and none was below 76.
G. M. Redlck made the highest score
for an Omaha man, with 97 from eighteen

Is Anybody Not Going
to COLORADO This Year?
If so, let him hold up his hand. The whole country has gone Colorado mad.
There never has been such an exodus since Cripple Creek struck ore. The
people of the valleys all love those mountains, even better than the mountaineers.
But there is no need to describa it Of course you are
going. The question is how best to get there.
There are several routes to Colorado, but if you want
your vacation to start when you start, take
Everybody knows that jidgc of the Rockies, and
everybody loves it well. They have mountains that
make our hills look like toys mountains that reach clear
into the sky, where the lazy clouds are caught by the
the road that gives you a Fifth Avenue hotel dinner on wheels
the road that givet you a homelike bed on wheels the road that
give you the quiet, attentive ter vice of a Metropolitan club on wheels.
It cotj no more thaa Bny other way yet it givei you all tha
luxury of a palatial home, and it lands you in Colorado one night.
It is laid with ninety-pound steel rails; it is guarded with Automatic
Electric Block Safety Signals and double tracked all the way; it is
ballasted with dustless Sherman gravel You can actually sit out-of-doors
all the way and enjoy this continent at you never enjoyed it before.
Of course you are going to Colorado and of course you are going
