Abundance of Big
Backfield Cracks
An almost exact reversal of former
conditions confronts the Bellevue col
lege coaches this season. Instead of
an abundance of line material, with
but few backs to rush the ball through
the holes opened by the linemen, this
season no less than five veteran backs
are out for the team,witlj .three fast
new men vying with them for jjjaces.
Captain Racely, "Big Chief" Picotte,
the Indian half; Allen, Stewart and
Johns are the . old backfield men.
Shainholtz, ' Daupgherty and Dunlap
are the new men whom the Bellevue
rnarhfs are trvinsr out back of the
line. Besides, John Kinnier, a 180
pound freshman, who, is expected to
arrive within a day or two, may no
velop into a capable halt or tun.
Of the heavy Bellevue line of the
days of yore, consisting of Lichten-
wanner, weDD, vjumore, vvciirc, vjub
tafson, Hardlannert, Erwin and Kin
nier, only the three last are back. Kin
nier is a center, Gustafsori, the "Ter
rible Swede," is a guard and Erwin is
an end. This leaves four places to be
filled with the new material, which
looks good, but is very inexperienced.

todav readv to begin preparations
for the series. With the race as un

taken yet by the national commission,
Mr. Johnson said.
"I am certain the world's series will
start on October 7," said Johnson.
"The contestants might be willing to
begin October 6, but I hardly think
so. The American league race closes
one day earlier than the Nationals,
so 1 do not think tnat would De iair
to the National league winner, how
ever, so it looks as if the opening
game would be played a week from
next Saturday.
"Owing to the uncertainty of the
race we have been unable to make
any arrangements for the series and
I don't know whether to start east or
remain in the west. The White Sox
still have a chance, but of course, in
the National league, the winner 'will
be an eastern team."

the lads a wide ball on the first base .

secret, however, and the entrants will-,
not know until the time comes who ,
will toss up the slants.

Full of Flavor That Lasts v
As Long As the ..
Chew Lasts ..
You have noticed, of course,,
that tvery kind of loose tobacco
dries up, and loses its flavor and
fragrance. , ' '
It is only the hard-pressed flug,
like Old Kentucky, that retains the
juice, and preserves the, flavor,
for a long period. . : -
A chew of Old Kentucky car
ries straight to your tongue,
where you get the full good of it,
the sweet, wholesome, appetizing
digestion-aiding juice of the leaf.
Old Kentucky makes a specially
healthful and satisfying chew he
cause it is made of ripe, selected,
hand-stemmed Burley leaf, press- .
ed into plug in a bright, clean fac
tory, under the most rigid sanitary
conditions. - '
If you haven't tried Old Ken
tucky you should do so rigit
away. You'll say you never sup
posed a tobacco could be so fruity
sweet, delicious and refining.
