THE woman golfers are planning to have a city championship next
week at the Country club. The exact date has not been deter
mined and will depend on other golf events to be held at the club
the same week. President M. C. Peters Is arranging a series of
events' for the men players of the club, and the women golfers will have
charge of the women's tournament
Mrs. E. II. Sprague Is the present city and state champion and will
undoubtedly hold her title, but It Is thought that an annual tournament
held In the fall will stimulate the interest In the game, and encourage the
newer players to greater activities. Among the promising players who
have Just started this season are Miss Daphne Peters and Miss Mildred
Butler, both of whom have played the Inside nine holes at the Country
club In less than fifty strokes, which, is a remarkable score for the first
This will be the first straight match without handicaps hold this
year and the players will be divided Into three flights. ,
P. E. 0. Nutting Party. i
On of the pleasant events of the last
week was the entertainment of Chapter
K of the Omaha P. E. O. society by the
sister chapter at Flattsmouth.
The Omaha women tuok the morning
train and detrained at the rifle- range
crossing near Flattsmouth. where they
were met by a committee frnm the riatts
mouth chapter and their "brothers-in-law"
in hayrack waons. A ride through
the woods brought them to the camp
where they were welcomed by the chap
ter and more "brothers-in-law," and an
hour, spent in vtsltlna- around the camp
fire, where a delicious and bountiful beef
steak dinner wa served and followed by
a nut-gathering contest.
It was some time before the city gueats
realised that they were finding walnut
under ash trees, hickory nuts under oaks
and hazelnuts In barberry thickets, so
Intent were the on filling the Backs pro
vided. The fact that their tank had been
made easy for them by their hoata and
hostesses, who for daya had rifled the
surrounding forests and heaped their
booty within eaay reach, gradually be
came known and the sacks were soon
Then rsme the gathering of bittersweet
and fall flowers and fomrge, and a reat
at the ramp, where It was recalled that
twenty-five years ago at about that hour
a little company of seven representative
women of Plattimouth gathered at the
home of Mrs. George P. Houseworth and
were Initiated Into the mysteries of P.
K. O. by Miss Clara B. Mason of the
Omaha chapter. Miss Mason was present!
and congratulated the chapter upon Its
growth. Influence and accomplishments,
and there were talks by the presidents of
the two chapters and recitations and
songs and toasts until the hour for de
parture arrived. '
A ride through the business and resi
dence streets to the depot ended a day
long to be remembered by the wearers
of the golden star beating its mystic let
