With tho nearlng of tha end or the
local basket ball season, a number of the
league quintets have become lax In their
appearance for scheduled games. Last
week th Swifts 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 tha 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 playera In this
manner resulted disastrously for the
Olarkg last Tuesday, when only threa 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 placa in
the Trl-Clty circuit.
Considerable interest marked tha week's
play in the Church league. What brought
forth the greatest surprise was the closa
manner in which the South Omaha Bap
tists held the First Christians at the local
"T." The Baptist not only held the
leaders of the Church league during tha
contest, but forced tha game to an extra
three minutes to play off a tie. How-
ever, the Increased strength manifested
by the Baptl'ta will count for little mora
than naught as the season Is too far ad
vanced for them to Jump Into tha first
Another surprise In the Church league
Is the steady climb ot th Kountze Mo
morlala. Threa straight victories have
put them In third place.
Hard Lock for swifts.
It 1 doubtful whether tha Swift and
Company five of tha Trl-Clty league will
play tha remaining scheduled contests.
Hard luck has so devastated the five that
a number ot the star playera 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 game to be played off. Home
of the quintets are so far behind that
they have taken part In only half of the
regular games. However, the playing off
of these games will make but little dif
ference, a the present leader of each
group have amply demonstrated that they
are supreme. This Is one of the reasons
for the delay of th finishing of these

George Reim Says '
Show Just Closed ,
Best for All Time
George F. Reim et the Cadillac company
of Omaha, speaking of. the automobile
show Just ended, say:
"There can be no doubt, of the real
value of an automobile show. There are
several sides to consider. First, that of
the great good to th community. Dur-1
ing the week of the show. It Is safe to
ay that from 50,000 to 100,000 people eome
to Omaha, It each one of the 50,000 people,
pend but $10, It means a half million of
dollars are distributed among -the local
merchants and hotels. Then It Is safe
to say that as much mora Is speat - for
automobiles, a percentage of which re
mains in Omaha, among tho Interested
"The educational side must not be over-
looked. Years ago tha Cadillac Motor
Car company saw the great Importance
of educating the publio In the meohanlcal
construction of an automobile."
Mr. Reim adds that the purchaser of
automobiles In Omaha and the unround
ing country ar exceptionally motor-wise.
They do not rush la and hastily aoaa
ovr the car on the outside and place,
an order, because a car has an eleotrlo
tarter or horn or a bumper or something
of that sort. But they look Into the
more vital parts ot the mechanisms, en
quire Into the quality of steels and the.
power and gasoline and oil consumption.
From the number ot orders placed for
Cadlilao car in the last few days of the
show there can be no doubt of the de
cision arrived at by th careful and well.
Informed purchasers. . ; ,
This show will go down In th annals
of th Cadillac company of Omaha a
the best ever held.
