held Wednesday evening following
a banquet given by the board of di
rectors at the Paxton hotel.
J. J. Isaacson, for three years presi
dent of the association, was re-elected
to 'the office for a fourth term. Isaac
son has been president of the ama
teur association since its organiza
tion. William Bloszics was elected to

retary for the last three years. Jimmy
Milota was elected secretary and F.
S. Hunter re-elected treasurer.
. Two directors-at-large to act dur
ing 1917 were also named, George
Clark and Robert Kroll.
The board directed President Isaac
son to make inquiries into the feas
ibility of starting the organization of
a Midwest Amateur Base Ball asso
ciation. The two national associa
tions did not enjoy Very successful
seasons this year and several ot the
middle western cities are dissatisfied.
It is believed that Lincoln, Des
Moines, St. Joseph, Kansas City, St.
Louis, Minneapolis, St. Paul and Du
luth would be glad to accept fran
chises in a middle west body if Oma
ha would take the lead in the organi
zation of such.
It was also decided that an advis
ory board of Omaha business men
would be named to advise and make
suggestions to the board of direc
tors. President Isaacson will be
asked to submit a list of names for

out the summer months had been
resurrected. Street cars were taxed
to capacity by persons who ordinarily
walk to work and the streets seemed
