With tho nearlnf of the end of the
local basket ball season, a number of the
league quintets have become lax In their
appearance for acheduled games. Last
week tha Swlfta failed to show up for
two contests and as a result lost both by
the forfeit route.
In a number of games last week many
of the players that belonged to the dif
ferent aggregations failed to appear and
resulted In teams being filled with men
who did not belong to the organization.
The switching around of players In this
manner resulted Utaastrously for the
CI arks last Tuesday, when only three ot
their regulars showed up. The Clarks
were completely vanquished by the
Omaha High school quintet, and are now
tied by the Pirates for second place In
the Trl-Clty circuit.
Considerable Interest marked the week's
play In the Church league. What brought
forth the greatest surprise was the close
manner In which the South Omaha Bap
tists held the First Christians at tho local
"Y." The Baptists not only held the
leaders of the Church league during the
contest, but forced the game to an extra
three minutes to play off a tie. How
ever, the Increased strength manifested
by the Baptists will count for little more
than naught as the season la too far ad
vanced for them to jump into the first
Another surprise In the Church league
Is the steady climb of the Kountze Me
morials. Three straight victories have
put them In third place.
Hard Lark for Kwifts.
It Is doubtful whether the Swift and
Company five of the Trl-Clty league will
play the remaining acheduled contests.
Hard luck has so devastated the five that
a number of the star players have given
up the game for the season. Aerhart,
guard, was recently operated on because
of a bad arm; Shalnholts, a forward, was
forced to retire because of a weak heart,
while Philips ha been out for some time
because of sickness.
There still remains a large number of
postponed games to be played off. Some
of the quintets are so far behind that
they have taken port In only half of the
regular games. However, the playing off
of these gair.es will make but little dif
ference, as the present leaders of each
group have amply demonstrated that they
are supreme. Thla Is one of the reasons
for the delay of the finishing of these

In a thrilling combat for Mgh stakes,
City Commissioner Dan Butler, aided and

whether Harry Prlmeau should roll with

"There can be no doubt, of the real
value of an automobile ahow. There are
several aidea to conalder. First, that of

Ing ths week of the ahow. It la safe to
aay that from 60,000 to 100,000 people come
to Omaha. If each one of the 60,000 people,
spend but $10, It means a half million of

"Tho educational aide must not be over
looked. Years - ago tho Cadillac Motor .
Car company saw the great Importance)
of educating the public In the mechanical
construction of an automobile."
Mr. Relm adds that the purchasers of
automobllea In Omaha and the eurround-
Ing country are exceptionally motor-wise.
They do not rush in and haatUy scan
over the cara on the outside and place,
an order, because a car haa an eleotrlo
starter or horn or a bumper or something
Of that sort. But they look Into ths
more vital parta of the mechanisms, en
quire Into the quality of eteela and the.
power and gasoline and oil consumption.
From the number of . ordere placed for
Cadillac cara tn the last few daya of the
ahow there can be no doubt of the de
cision arrived at by the careful and wall.
Informed purchaaera. , ,
This ahow will go down In the annals
of the Cadillac company of Omaha aa
