JOHN PESEK WILL
' EXHIBITJ OMAHA
Bijffalo County Mat Marvel
Will Work in Semi-Windup
at Stecher-Peters Go.
HELD CADDOCK OFF HOUB
Omaha grappling fans are to be
given an opportunity to cast their
critical orbs over the person of John
Pesek, the Bohemian lad who sprang
up recently out in Buffalo county and
has been cutting such a swarth
around Shelton and Ravenna. Pesek
will wrestle in the semi-windup event
at the Joe Stecher-Charlie Peters
tangle at the Omaha Auditorium
February 9. His opponent has not
yet been determined.
The attention of Nebraska wrest
ling fans was first directed to young
Mr. Pesek last fall. He had done a
little wrestling before last fall, but
not a great deal, but when the seaspn
opened in October he got away to a
flying start and has been making
considerable noise ever since.
Pesek's greatest achievement was
to stand Earl Caddock' off for an
entire hour. Caddock went out to
Shelton to wrestle Peters a handicap
go. Earl guaranteed to throw Pesek
twice in an hour. Not only did Earl
fail to throw the Buffalo county man
twice in an hour, but he failed to
throw him at all. Pesek won the
handicap bands down. Any wrestler
who can stand Caddock off for an
hour is. some wrestler, and when lo
cal mat fans heard of his achievement
they promptly voted him another real
Nebraskan.n ;. .
Pesek is pnly. a youngster and is
still pretty green. He only weighs
185 pounds, so that he has to give
weight to most of the heavyweights
he meets. Out in Buffalo, county,
around Sheldon and Ravenna, they
areconvmced he1 is a1 coming cham
pion. . -' : ; .-.
When the Stecher-Peters match
was scheduled for February 9, friends
of Pesek got in communication with
the Omaha promoters and asked that
Pesek be matched with some good
man in the semi-windup, so that the
state metropolis could see for itself
that Nebraska has turned out another
wrestler who is going to make a
name for himself.

Eobert C. Folwell, Dropped by
Faculty, Says He Will Not.

STUDENTS CALL MEETING
Philadelphia, Pa., Jan. 30.-A call
for. a mass meeting to protest against
the action of the faculty committee
of the University of Pennsylvania in
refusing to sanction the reappoint
ment of Robert C. Folwell as head
coach of the foot ball team, has been
issued by a committee of students.
Bert Bell, quarterback of the Quaker
eleven, declared the team was for
Folwell 'to a man," and that a peti
tion would be circulated asking the
committee ,to reconsider its action.
Folwell was indignant when he
learned of the faculty committee's
"I have known for some time, he
said, "that the faculty committee was
opposed to re-engaging me as coach,
but felt that in some way the mat
ter could be adjusted. Now that they
have seen fit to make their repudia
tion of my name public I am going to
fight the matter to a finish.
"Dr. Goodspeed says I am not ac
ceptable. Why? I challenge any
man in the world to prove that my
actions during the last season have
reflected on the University of Penn
sylvania in any way.
"If Penn is through with me, I am
through with foot ball, but I am not

Twelve Quarts of Beer

(From a Staff CorTeepondenL)
Lincoln, Jan. 30. Special Tele
gram.) Twelve nuarts of beer or one
quart of whisky, or its equivalent in
wine or something like it, will be al
lowed each person in Nebraska each
month, according to the new bill,
which is being prepared by the legis
lative special prohibition joint com
mittee, so it is understood.
The committee expects to have the
bill ready for introduction some time
tomorrow and then if the members
do not amend it the state may be
counted upon to be not bone dry.
There is a provision in the bill which
requires every man wanting the stuff
to do some tall hustling to find out
where he can get it, for no advertising
of liquors can be made in the state,
nor can any drag store handle it.

Certain articles of diet tend to

most common of these are cheese, tea

new fruits, especially apples and ba

TRAINS GETTING THROUGH
The Union Pacific is again in the
clear and trains are running on sched

out at the office of General Mana
ger Jeffers, The blizzard that struck
the Wyoming 'division again Mon
day night was of short duration, not
continuing more than six hours.
There was some new snow and a
high wind, but after the storm sub

was quickly cleared and in the morn

During the storm the wind over
the blizzard area blew from the west
and after it reached its greatest velo
city it had much to do with clearing

C. J. Lane, general freight agent,

the latest blizzard out on the Union
Pacific was of a variety similar to
one that . blew across the country
some years ago, when Ed Dickinson
was general manager and took a hand
in bucking snow. i
To Secure an Army.
On one of the long stretches of
rough country through Wyoming a
passenger train became stalled in a,
long, deep cut. The superintendent
of the Wyoming division wired the
fact to Dickinson, who immediately
wired back orders to pick up all the
available men and rush them to the
scene of the blockade, using special
trains .for carrying then).
At the same time Dickinson had a
special train made up in the Omaha'
yards and in his private car, attached
to the rear, started for the blockade
Reaching there he found the track
clear and no indications of there hav
ing been anv storm trouble. Talking
with his superintendent, whom he
met that evening at Laramie, he was
informed that between the time 'of
sending the wire and the time of
reaching the storm-stricken district
the wind had changed and had com
menced blowing lengthwise instead of
across the cut. The wind increased
in velocity and soon cleared the cut
of snow, permitting the train to move

what occurred Monday night and that

He went to sleep there. A police

Searchers at headquarters found $48.25

The Dalilinan automobile case is
If he ever lolls back upon the cush

trict court defines as "strictly official
business." ' ,
For Judfce Leslie has issued a per
manent injunction restraining Mayor
Jim from using cars owned by the
city for anything save this same
"strictly official business," as previ
ously decreed in the temporary order.
The Dalilinan suit harks back to the
time last fall when James D. Murphy,
a South Side boilermaker, brought
suit in district court against Mayor
Dahlman, the city commissi! ners and
the city comnti oiler, asking fhat

- No Personal Rides,
After a bitterly fought case, Judge
Leslie issued a temporary restraining
order in favor of Murphy, who said
that he represented taxpayers in gen
eral. It was brought out in the tes
timony that the mayor's carl, since
the, first one was purchased in 1912,
have cost the city more than $13,000,
including upkeep, garage bills and
chauffeur's salary, Counsel for Mur
phy argued that his mayorship used
the official machine for his own per
sonal calls and other personal motor

that the restraining order be made
permanent the city 'legal talent re

What Mayor Knows.
City Attorney Rine at the hearing
for a permanent injunction had asked
that Judge Leslie define in his final
decision the official duties of the
mayor. Judge, Leslie in issuing the
permanent injunction said that it did
not feel that that was necessary, add
ing that the mayor should know what
are official duties and what are not.
Attending improvement club meet
ings, receptions and banquets are not
official duties, Judge Leslie decreed.
In addition to permanently restraining
tne mayor trom using the city-owned
car for anything but just "official busi
ness" the judge also restrained the
city comptroller and city commis
sioners from granting any warrants
for chauffeur's salary for the same.

HOME RULE CHARTER
MOVE HOW STARTED
Commissioner Jardine Intro
duces Ordinance for Call
ing of an Election.
MAY WAIT TILL NEXT TALL
' Commissioner Jardine has started
the ball rolling for another home rule ,
chartei convention. He introduced at
the city council meeting an ordinance
which, if finally passsed, would pro- ;
vide the legal authority for the com-
missioners to call in election.
Under the law providing for a '
home charter commission it would
be necessary to have a primary elec
tion anfl an election proper, fifteen to
be chosen to serve on the commission.-
Mr. Jardine explained he offered
his ordinance by request and intimat
ed that a group of prominent citi
zens will push the proposition when
the time shall come. Improvement
club will discuss the matter consid
erably during the next few months.
- Present Charter as a Basis, ,
The plan is to submit the present
city charter, or the charter as
amended by the present legislature, ,
and make it the basis for a home rule
charter, The chief purpose of those
who are behind the movement, it is
stated, is to secure the adoption of
the existing charter, rather than have (
a commission to tinker for several 1
months on a new charter and then
run the risk of defeat in the end, as
was the case ,0m the occasion of the
last charter convention. t
By adopting the present charter
under the home rule taw the city then
would be in a position to modify its
own charter through a charter com
mission, rather than be required to
?;o to the legislature every two years
or legislation which comprises purely
local matters, was one of the argu
ments offered in support of the or
dinance. - Favor the Charter.
Tne' commissioners are inclined to ,
favor the ordinance offered by Mr.
"I am in favor of a home rule char
ter, but I doubt whether it would
not be wise tp wait until next fall be- ,
fore calling an election on this mat
ter. The legislature is in session just
now, but 1 am willing to abide by
what seems to be the best judgment
in the matter. I have alwavs favored
a home rule charter," stated Mayor
Dahlman. ' '
! Commissioner Withnell will snp
port the ordinance. '
We're Always on the
