Shag Thompson, a slight young man
who hails from below, the Mason
Dixon line, cracked a home run over
the right field fence in the seventy in
ning yesterday, scoring two men
' ahead of him, and Omaha very effec
tively tamed Mr. Jackson's wild
Wolves from Wichita, 5 to 3. Win
ning games via the home 'run route
is getting popular with the de luxe
Rourklets. Bobby Marshall did the
same thing Friday.
Shaggerino's circuit clout was con
siderable blow. It was not one of
those long high flies, but a regular
line drive which skimmed ovft the
wall very gracefully.
Elmer Koestner, the most lackadai
sical and procrastinating hurler be
tween Brooklyn and Hong Kong, was
the victim. Elmer is supposed to be
Wichita's best pitcher, but he's about
the. slowest thing that ever stepped on
a hurling mound, and it served him
Error Starts Rally.
Elmer wis breezing along with a
two-run lead when the seventh inning
arrived. But in that frame his obitu
ary was compiled. Kewpie Kilduff
opened the stanza by taking advan
tage of Litschi's bobble. After Joe
Burg flew out and Otto Men whiffed,
Kewpie scooted to second on a wild
pitch : and went to third on Earl
Smith's infield hit. Marty Krug's
single to center counted Kewpie. Then
came Mr. Thompson. He slammed the
circuit drive, and Smith and Krug
romped home ahead of him.' '
Omaha'scored its first run in the
fourth on a single by 'Miller, Mar
shall's double and Fprsythe's infield.
OUt. - " .
The wild Wolves counted one in the
"opening stanza. A walk to Fox, Coy's
single and Britton's safety did the
work.' Two more were annexed by
the opposition in the third, when
Rapps - singled, Koestner sacrificed,
Jackson singled and Coy doubled.
Both Hurl Good Ball.
Both Merz and Koestner hurled
good games and both teams played
good ball. The Rourkes did not com
mit an error. In the last four innings
Merz retired the Wolves in order.
Thompson's home run was not the
only drive he hit pver the fence. In
a previous frame Shag boosted the
pill over the right field wall, but it fell
foul hy a couple of feet., r
- BillFox, who once graced a Rourke
uniform, became baliuy in the Bran
through the heat yesterday.. Ordi
narily cm is a lett tietder, but toy
couldn't see in the sun yesterday so
Fox was sent to right and Coy given
the shady garden. In the fifth inning
Merz went to second oq .Krug's hit
and- ha8 pulled up at the' keystone.'
But the sun had gone to Bill's head
and he hurled the ball to third. It
didn't stop at third, but went on to
the grandstand, letting Merz and
Marty advance another base.
Koestner Delays Game.
Mr. Koestner aroused the impa
tience of the fans yesterday by his
slow hurling. Between pitches Koest
ner would walk around the infield two
or three times, investigate the sky,
survey the grandstand and then look
to see if the flag was still flying before
he threw the ball. And Umps Eck
man let him get away with it, al
though Prexie Zehrung is said to have
issued instructions that umpires shall
do everything possible to- bustle
games along. - -
A double-header will be played be
tween Wichita and Omaha this after
noon, starting at 2 o'clock.

For Eivef Road Says
Expert of New York
George B. Ford of New York City,
one of the consulting engineers in
the employ of the City Planning
board, traversed the territory along
the river north of Florence and in the
vicinity of Child's Point.
' "I am frank when I state that
Omaha has great possibilities for a
scenic automobile route along the
river, both north and south of the city.
Neither Kansas City nor St. Louis
has anything to equal these splendid
views," said Mr. Ford.
He was particularly impressed with
the view along the river north of
Florence. He said the hills, trees,
river and lowlands are "composed" as
the artist would compose a picture.
Dr. Harold Gifford visited the north
river territory with several of the city
planners. The doctor believes a move
ment should be started to acquire a
large tract along the low road north
l-of Florence to be used as a park. He
suggests tnat city ana county officials
and others of time and influence
should go before the legislature next
winter anri secure passage of a bill to

the members of the new activities
committee of the Comercial club are
planning a joint meeting to be held
some time during the latter part of

The advisability of moving the old

Telegram.) Ralph Powell of the

In the final round for the singles
championship, Powell defeated Hani

ell played a cool, consistent game, al
ways placing the ball with the eye
and distance of an expert. On the
other hand, Hanighen seemed to lose
control. His system of returns vas
splendid, but he used a trifle too
much speed and as a result became
Powell and Hannighen won the
doubles championship from Madden
and Oldham this morning. It was a
brilliant match all the way through,
but the Omaha team showed more
finish and better team work. Old
ham, especially, was inclined to be
wild and lost many points this way.
The score was 6-4, 10-8, 6-1.
All the glory goes to Omaha this
year as a result of the double victory
today. Both cups will rest in the
state metropolis all winter. But the
players enjoyed an ideal week at
Wayne, whether they counted aipong
the prize winners or not. They have
much to say in praise of Wayne, its
excellent court and genuine hospi

STAR OK GRAND CIRCUIT
. BY RUSSELL PHELPS.
Omaha horses and horsemen cl
other generations have handed dou.i
a heritage in the turf world of whti.li
the present day devotees and spoil- "
ori of the grand old sport may veil -be
proud. They have earned for
themselves envied pages in ho.sc
dom's archives; but it has remained - -for
the 1916 crowd to bring Ne
braska's metropolis to the very fore
front as the western capital of har
ness racing and the stamping ground
of owners whose stables have pro
duced winners with, a large VV.
Early In the season, long before the ,..
frost was out of the ground, Omnia -became
the Mecca of owners and
traineis of fast strings from the four ""
corners of the country horsemen 'j
who saw in the local plants, principal
ly the East Omaha track of the i
Omaha Driving club, the ideal locale
for developing speedy exponents of
the harness unit of the sport of king.
Bring In the Maxums.
When the aeaaon wore on and the .
drivers began to get the "go" word
around at the different meetings in
this section of the country, horse- ,
men, who had trained their charges i.
at the local tracks stepped right ejt ,,
and started lining their money belts
with the stuff that pays the feed bills -and
keeps the swipes in the where
withal tor making those t astes in :,.
the shade of a friendly stable. -
Of tha meetings in Nebraska to;
date this year, the Omaha-owned, or
at least, the speed boys trained on ; ;
local tracks, have come in for bountiful , .
shares of the purses. The same is
more or less true of meetings .
throughout the middle west. Only a ,
couple of days ago the news was ;r
flashed up from Wichita, Kan., where
the Kansas and Oklahoma circuit .' '
dished up soma fast races, that M. T.,
a clean-cut pacer owned in Omaha
by Fred A. Myers and Charles E , '
Klinger, had romped home with the , .
bacon in the 2:11 event, winning in '
straight heats. The first heat, paced
in 2:1 IX, broke the track record. M.
T. is a pacer of real merit and was ""
purchased by the Omaha-horsemen
after they had seen the animal per- .
form at the Benson meeting here.
Ben Earl's Great Victory. V
A signal and nationally-heralded w
victory for an Omaha-Owned horse
was that of Ben Earl, the property ' '
of Peterson Bros., who performed
the envious feat of winning the Ed-., .
wards pacing stake at the open meet, e.i'
ing of the Grand Circuit at the North 1
Randall track, Cleveland, last Mon
day. . . . "
. This race, In which the heat posi- '.
tlons were one, four and one, waa ,,
the first big feature of the Grand Cir- ,
cult 1V16 campaign. - With Marvin
