THAT WAR IS OVER
Omiha Club Owner Predicts that
Halcyon Dayi of Old in Base
Ball Will Return Again.
ALL DEPENDS ON PLATERS
"That Is certainly rwwit muate for the
r of the minor league owner," declared
Pa Ftourke. owner of the Omaha Weet-
ern league club. ' when the newa that
peace In baseball waa aaaurred wa
broken to him.
"The halcyon days of old," rejoiced
' Ttourke "will return again. "With two
major leagues, no outlaws, no contract
Jumpers, everything happy and peaceful
within Organised base ball, the fans will
come back and the professional game
resume Its place as the national pastime
"The base ball war has unquestionably
been the cause of the last two poor sea-
sons. It la the players which put the life
Into the fans. When the players exhibit
ginger and pep on the diamond the fan
comes to see the games, gets excited,
takes an active Interest and everything
"But during the last two years
the players have played when they
wanted to and loafed when they
wanted to and mostly they loafed. They
fussed and fumed about salaries and
most of the base ball business consisted
of scrapping over finances Instead of
over pennants. When a club owner of
fered a player a contract. b could reas
onably stand, the player laugher, oe-
manded More money, got it and then
played Indifferent base balui.
Experts Bettr' Tear Here.
"But It will be different now. The
player will have to hustle. He'll play
real' ball or he'll lose his lob. The result
will be the game will once more have
Its attractions for the fans and will
prosper. I expect the Western to have
fifty per cent txtter season next year
now that peace has been declared."
Ftourke opines that there will be some
neat salary cutting In the majors be
fore the season opens in April. "The
big boys are tired of paying railroad
president salaries to temperamental'
stars." said Pa. "and you won't hear
many more yarns about $18,000 and $15,000
salaries from now on."
Athletes Will Palle.
That many of the players who bolted
from Organised base ball and leaped
to the Teds will not be allowed to re
enter the majors Is Rourke's belief.
He ventures the opinion that those who
had big loop jobs before the Feds ap
peared will be forced back Into the
minors. "6 course the big stars who
broke reserve clause contracts three
years ago probably will gee back," he
said. "The penalty for such offense la
suspension for three years and the three
years I "P for several of them. They
will not auffer. But some of the other
fellows who broke-contracts which is a
five-year offense will be penalised.
Others who broke contracts and signed
long-term hlgh-calarled contracts with
the Feds will be allowed to return to the
majors upon agreement to pass up their
demand on the contract obligations. Of
course all players In the Feds will re
vert to the Organised ball clubs which
' previously controlled their services.
"All in all It is mighty pleasant news
and you'll find every minor league own
er tickled to death."
To Start Play in
Ball League Soon
The Tri-City Basket Ball league will
tart soon after the first of the year and
the first game of the regular high school
schedule will be with Council Bluffs High,
Jnnuary 8. After two weeksof practice
the coach has a line on his material, but
has not picked a first squad. A hard
lrartlce of from an hour to an hour and
a half each day and the squad la kept on
tli jump during this whole period.
"Fussy" MacFarland and John Crowley
of the basket ball aquad have challenged
Coach Mulligan and Fred Spinning of the
I -ulty for a hand ball game to decide
the championship of the school The coach
is Just learning the game, but he Is wlll
I' g to take a chance.
Operation on Joe
CHICAGO, Dec. 18 -Joe Tinker, man
ager of the Chicago Federal league cham
pions, submitted to an operation today
for stone In the kidney.
Intermittently through the base ball
arason Tinkt-r suffered Intense Internal
pain and was repeatedly advised that
an operation was necessary. The visit to
the hospital was delayed because the
manager waa determined to direct his
club's fight for the pennant.
Recently It waa believed that Inflam

was made by Ir. M. U Harris. The re

He had McCoy worried by the stories
of bis fights, but the Kid said nothing,

NOTRE DAME WILL
Huikeri and Indiana Catholic Foot
Ball Teams Will Meet at Lin
coln Thanksgiving; Day.
CONTRACT FOR ONE YEAR ONLY
LINCOLN, Neb.. Dec. 15. (Spe
cial Telegram.) Notre Dame and
Nebraska will meet again la 1916
on the gridiron and for the first time
!n five years the Cornhuskers will
I lay a Thanksgiving day game. Man
ager Guy E. Reed announced this
morning that he had entered Into a
contract with Coach Jesse Harper of
Notre Dame, which would bring the
Catholics to Lincoln again next year
on Turkey day.
Thanksgiving foot ball was abolished
among Missouri Vslley conference
schools five years ago, but re-etab-Ushed
last season early tci permit Kan
sas and Missouri to play a Turkey day
game. The Huskcrs were quick to grab
the opportunity for a Thanksgiving day
battle, the most profitable financially of
any of the season.
Harper held out for a two-year con
tract, the 1917 game to be placed In South
Bend, but Reed said he did not care to
bind Nebraska's new coach by any such
arrangement and Harper readily con
sented to a yearly contract. The Notre
Dame game last year was the most
thrilling of the season and Reed counts
himself fortunate In securing the strong
Catholic school tor the- Turkey day bill
Sis other games, It was announced, have
been arranged with the following teams
Drake university, Kansas Agricultural
college, Iowa State Agricultural college
(Ames), Kansas university, Nebraska
Weslcyan university and lorn-a university,

Charley Peters is
Willing to Tackle
Martenson or Greek
Charley Peters, the Pebll'lon grappler,
ventures the opinion that Joe Htecher is
not the only Nebraska wrestler who can
dump one Paul Martenson of Chicago,
the man who wrestlnl Htecher for the
fourth time at Sioux City the other night.
Petera has deposited the sum r-f H' with
the sport ng editor of The Bee as evi
dence of good faith, and he challenges
either Martenson or Kuvaros. the Greek,
who wants a crack at Stecher. Kuvaros
was matched to wrestle ftech"r at U.
Joseph Isst week, but Htecher had the
grip and called the match off.
The $100 posted with The Bee Is a for
feit for a aide bet of from tioo to K0
with either ens of the wreatlera men
tioned above. Mr. Peters ssys he prefers
to wrestle In Omaha.'
Peters started wrestling here several
years ago and beat all comers In the
preliminaries when matches were staged
at the Auditorium with Gotch and Beell
and Burn and other as the principals.
Blnce that time he has been In other
parts of the country and haa wrestled
some of the best of them, always giving
a good account of himself. He wrestled a
half-hour draw with Krnat several
months ago. Peters Is the man who
posted 1100 a short time ago for a match
with Rtrangler Lewis, but the Htrangler
did not see fit to tske him on.
