Green South High
Flippers Clean Up
South High romped all river Platts
mouth for a 66-to-8 victory last eve
ning. Coach Patton's fast string of
crack all-rounders piled up' a total of
thirty-three baskets and allowed but
three by their opponents. From the
start the Souths had the jump on the
visitors and showed unexcelled abil
ity at shooting baskets. '
All but one of the players who went
in against the down-river lads had
never played basket ball before this
season. The Packer coach was con
siderably surprised at the excellent
passing, team work and basket shoot
ing. It looked like the South school
would amount to a little more than
usual this year.
The brilliant generalship of Lyman
Corr, captain of the Packers, was in
a good way responsible for the over
whelming score. Coach Patton shifted
Hedgreen, sub center, and Graham,
forward, to the pivot position, trying
out both men. Both combinations

Omaha Uni Drops
First Floor Fray
Of Year to Dana
The Omaha university basket ball
quintet lost its first game to Dana col
lege last night by a score of 13 to 24.
The game was a speedy one through
out and although it was the first ap
pearance of the teams on the court
many sensational throws were made
by both sides.
Captain Hansen of the Dana five
began piling up scores for the Blair
ites as soon as the ball was in play
and kept up the good work through
out the first half. Omaha's flippers
were helpless in the strong arms of
their opponents and although they
often got the ball they were not
able to aim it into the basket. The
score at the end of the first half was
17 to 5 in favor of Dana.
At the beginning of the second
half the tables turned for a few min
utes. Mark Lowe, who took Thomp
son's place, aided Leach in some
classy team work and in no time at
all Omaha's score was increased by
six points. From this point on the
teams played a rather close game,
alternating the gains. During the
last three minutes of the game the
Omaha boys started to play so ener
getically that they forgot all about
rules and as a result Hansen of the
Dana team got to throw three free
baskets. The lineup:

Only one of the scheduled games
was played at the Young Men's Chris

Brandeis Stores and a pickup team

to accommodate the crowd. The
Scrubs won by a score of 28 to 21.
"Bud" Kcarns and Mark Hughes of
the Scrubs cavorted around the floor
in championship style and before the
Brandeis got together the Scrubs had
piled up too large a score for them
to overcome. Burkenroad was the

State Journal Pin Tumblers Are
High in Big Sweepstakes
NEW ALLEYS ARE OPENED
Sunday night will be a great one
for Omaha bowling enthusiasts, some
500 of whom witnessed the grand
opening of the new Omaha bowling
alleys. Amid strains of music from a
four-piece orchestra and in a large
room gayly decorted with flags aifd
huge bouquets of flowers, sent by ad
mirers and supporters of the game,
eight of the strongest teams in the
state competed against each other in
a big sweepstakes tournament, having
a prize fund amounting to $500. The
alleys were in splendid shape . and
some excellent exhibitions of bowling
were furnished the large crowd which
packed the place to the doors.
The State Journal company team
of Lincoln rolled into first place, with
a score of 2,823, thanks to the work
of our own George Zimmerman, who
led in totals, with 611. Following right
on their heels the fast Metz team
chalked up a score of 2,781, The
Home Restaurants grabbed off third
honors, with 2,742. Besides making
this total a probable winner of part
of the prize money, it also served to
defeat the crack Fremont team and
win a $100 purse for the local hash
slingers. Other scores were! Lincoln

Today at 2:30 o'clock four more
teams will shoot at the large pot.
They are Winner, S. D.; Schuyler,
Neb.; Independents of Omaha and an
all-star quintet from Des Moines, la.,
having in its lineup, Sellors, the in
dividual champion of the recent mid-
dlewest tournament held in St. Louis.
Beginning at 8 o clock this morning
doubles and singles will be rolled
throughout the day. All the stars
entered in the five-men event will
again appear in these in addition- to
a big flock of local sharks who did
not participate in the five event and
also a few extra stars who came
along with the visiting teams.
Local followers of the game are
loud in their praise of the new alley
establishment which they claim is the
finest layout they have ever seen.
Their views were augmented by those
of the visiting contingent of bowlers,
and as all have been attending tourna
ments all over the country for years
during which time they have seen the
best sets of alleys in the country, they
can be considered as expert authority
on the subject.
With ten new polished alleys with
out a post or obstruction to break the
wide expanse and a twenty-five foot
ceiling from which there is an excel
lent lighting system a picture is pre
sented which is pleasing to the eye of
any one whether or not they are in
terested in the bowling game.
The front is equipped with 150 seats,
a fine cigar case and soda fountain
and an up-to-date set of lockers.
At 1 o'clock today Middaugh and
Hammond of Fremont will roll a
match with Wartchow and Sciple of
Omaha for a $100 purse.

STORMY SESSION IS HELD
Seattle, Wash., Dec. 17. The direc
tors of the Pacific Northwestern Base
Ball league held a stormy meeting to
day, at which President Robert Ble
wett offered his resignation. President
D. E. Dugdale of the Seattle club
threatened to leave the league and a
motion to drop the Montana cities was
The resignation of President Ble
wett upon which the directoVs took
no action was offered at the close of
a session marked by differences of
opinion. Late tonight the directors
were still in session and had arrived
at no conclusion on the next season-s
policy of the league.
According to members who attend
ed this afternoon's meeting each di
rector found fault with the manage
ment of the league during the last
season. The crisis that resulted in the
resignation of the president came dur
ing an argument over whether Mon
day should be traveling day for the
teams. Butte and Great Falls insisted
that Seattle was working against the
Montana members. A motion to drop
the Montana towns from the league
was defeated. A motion to penalize
Seattle because of poor attendance
during the last season was carried,
whereupon Dugdale declared it was a
matter of indifference to him what ac
tion the league took. '
D. E. Dugdale, the Seattle magnate
who threatened to leave the league,
is a former Omaha mart, He used to
play on the old Union Pacific team
here in the eighties.
