ROUEKES LEADING BY 1 TO 0
Just as Freddy Bruck. Pa Rourke's
new jtitcher, was getting ready to
establish a new world's recorl by
striking out twenty-six batters in the
games with St. Joseph yesterday, old
J up I'l nv, wlio is rapidly becoming
our greatest nuisance, took a handin
the proceedings and put the -everlasting
blink on the contest at the
start of the third inning with the
count 1 to 0 in favor of Omaha.
Freddy had a good start when the
rain started. lie whiffed three
straight in the first inning and two
nut of thee in tlicsecond inning. All
he had to do was strike out everybody
elc to nuke the twenty-six. It was
pretty tough on Freddy.
And the toughest link of it all was
.Omaha had a lead on the Josics. One
tun was sneaked over by our side in
the first inning and the way liruck
was going that looked like a suf
ficiency if only the game could have
gone three more rounds.
Smith Loses Hit.
After liurg, who was put in the
lead off position yesterday, had
grounded our I'.aii Smitli cracked a
single to center. Smith is another
guy who is sore on the rain, he gets
jipped out of a hit in the official
records and every hit counts in these
days of the high cost of living. For
sythe drew a walk. Then Smith stole
third on Mr. lilock. More tough luck
for Smithy, trimmed out of a stolen
bate and a steal of third at that.
Miller got a walk, filling the sacks.
Krug is Robbed.
Marty Krug reefed a long drive
into left that looked like two bases.
Kut Denny Sullivan leaped into the
air awl pulled the ball down in a
spectacular one-handed catch. Smith,
however, scored easily after the catch.
Sommers then walked Krurger,
filling the bases again, and Jack Hol
land hoisted Sommers from the nark.
He called upon young Mr. Hovlik, a
gent with a lot of smoke. Just as
llovlik entered the box it clouded up
and became so dark that the fans be
gan to call for the electric lights,
llovlik sailed a few heaves over the
plattraud Fete Kildnff could even
see the ball, as a result vf the com
bination of speed and darkness. Jle
Hovlik Whiffs Four.
Hovlik also did some striking out,
whiffing Krause, Bruck and Burg in
a row in the second. Hruek whiffed
Sullivan, McCabe and Butler in suc
cession in the first and fanned Hel
iner and Jourdan in the second. He
Ivad two strikes on Keating and was
getting ready to put over the third
one in the third stanza when the rain
interfered and limps Carney called
lime. The rain kept up and the fray
was called off.
The weather prediction for today is
"showers" which is cheering news in
deed. Rain today may be worth a
million dollars to the farmers, but it'll
start a few base ball Magnates on a
good start toward bankruptcy.
OToole to Hurl Today,
If the fates, however, should be so
kind as to permit a little, sunshine to
day local fans vdll be treated to a
little extra. Marty OToole will work
for Omaha and Roy Patterson will
work for St. Joseph, These chaps
should stage a corking battle.
Outfielder Thompson, who was
procured by Kourke from Connie,
Mack Friday, is expected to report
here Monday. He is ready to go into
the game at once. Thompson,
Kourke believes, will strengthen the
club wonderfully as he is a .300 hit
ler with a record of being' a demon
in the pinches. He is also said to be
a sweet fielder and a ball players of
the fighting sort.
One-Ton Truck is
Popular With Firms
As a Delivery Car
In the infancy of the motor truck,
It was considered necessary to pur
case heavy high priced vehicles to
obtain the essentials required for
durability, power and speed. Con
sequently many firms are today find
ing themselves burdened with a fleet
of delivery trucks which are most ex
pensive in the upkeep and in no way
equivalent in service to the modern
dav light truck.
The truck of one-ton carrying capa
city has this advantage over its larger
sister, in that it can travel greater
distance with more ease and speed
at a greatly lower operating cost.
Among the v."."t successful of one
on triu ks o, the Smith Form -a-Truck
.,ld in Omaha by Johnson Danforth.
'Hits trial is made by transforming
a l ord car without change of power
plan, into a one ton trcuk.

TEMIS MEN ARE FAVORITES
By JAMES E. LAWRENCE.
LINCOLN, May 20.-(Special.)
Nebraska's best track squad since
1911 will enter the Missouri aVlley
conference meet at Columbia, Mo.,
with chances of winning a champion
ship. The big meet of Missouri Val
ley schools will be held May 26 and
27, the preliminaries coming on Fri
day, with the finals Saturday after
noon. Reed is more hopeful than he hat
been of the ! tuskers making a splen
did showing. His first year men are
showing up splendidly and have not
been handicapped by lack of experi
ence nearly so seriously as lie had
Fourteen schools have sent entries
for the Missouri Valley meet, mak
ing it the largest in the history of
the conference, The entries came
from .Simpson college, the Oklahoma
Angles, Kiiuball college, Fairmont
college, (Iriuiicll. Nebraska Weslcyan,
Tarkio, Central college, the Univer-
ity of Kansas, the I'ntvrrsity of Mis
souri, the Kansas Aggies, Drake,
Ames, Washington university and the
University of Nebraska.
Keed had practically decided upon
the team which be will take to Co
lumbia, ll will include Captain Scott,
Irwin, Wiley and Owen for the
stiriuts; Overman, firau and allies for
the distance runs; Wiley and O'Hrien
for the jumps and hurdles, Spohn for
distance runs, t'otey and Shaw for
Hoyt a Stumbling Block.
Iloyt, of Giiiinell, is the chief
stumbling block in tin- jiath of the
Cortihurikrrs, Keed believes. The
firinnell sprinter is one of the best
in the country and will certainly grab
some of the points Nebraska might
otherwise have landed. Herd feels
fairly lonfidenl of picking some of
the plates in the Kill, 220 and 440
yard (lashes, the broad jump, the
Wrights ami (he half-mile relay. Kan
sas, Ames and Missouri are all strong
but are likely to hurt each other in
the meet, leaving the path clear for
a fourth school to jump in and grab
the pie. i
The Cnrnhiisker squad will leave
Lincoln Thursday afiernoon, going
direct lo Columbia.
At the same lime the annual track
and field meet is being held at Co
lumbia, the faculty representatives of
the different schools in the confer
ence will also hold the annual meet
ing lo decide rules and regulations
in the several branches of sport for
the coming year, l'rof llarber, presi
dent of the Nebraska Athletic board,
will represent the J tusker institution
at the inert. There Is very little to
be done at the business session.
Favorites at Tennis.
At the same time the Huskers are
attempting to grab a championship in
track, Nebraska will also nave tennis
player at IJes Moines for the an
nual Missouri Valley Tenuis tourna
ment. The Huskers will be repre
sented in the doubles by Captain '
( halt and F.llis, and by F.llis and
(iardner in the singles. The chances
favor the Huskers lor fhe champion
ship, Nebraska having already met
and defeated all Missouri Valley
teams this year. The two Washing
ton cracks who won the champion
ship last year are not in school this
year. Nebraska was the runner-up
in the tennis tournament last spring.
Assistant Coach Hick Rutherford
wound up the spring foot ball prac
tice at the university this week. The
spring squad has averaged forty, and
from interest shown, Rutherford be
lieves he will have one of the best
squads next fall of recent year.
