FATHER ' ' a
Dodge Champion Coming to
Omaha for Match With
Peters Tomorrow Night.
Ready for his first tangle since his
disappointing go with John Olin last
December, Joe Stecher, the Dodge
tanon, is expected in Omaha today
lor his clash tomorrow night at the
Auditorium with Charlie Peters, the
Papillkm carpenter.
Stecher, according to the more or
less meager reports which have
trickled out of his training camp at
Dodge, is in the very best of con
dition as good condition as when he
met Strangler Lewis last summer.
The neuritis, which gave him so much
trouble and which necessitated a pro
longed visit to Excelsior Springs last
month, is said to have entirely disap
peared and Joe is once more able to
stand the roughest kind of a grueling
without the necessity of protecting bis
arm and shoulder.
This bids well to make the clash
tomorrow night an interesting one.
Charlie Peters has announced his in
tention of mixing it with Joe. Charlie
hasan idea that the "keep away" tac
tics of Lewis and Olin are of little
value. Such a scheme of battle may
prevent Stecher from throwing him,
Charlie reasons, but it would give
jaqw'ig Moaif) 04 nutip ou sjjjsj
And Peters wants to throw Stecher,
not ' merely stay a couple of hours
with him. As Stecher is never in
clined to avoid a mixup some excit
ing scrambles seem to be scheduled
for that Auditorium mat tomorrow
Pesek Also Expected.
John Pesek, the Buffalo Countv
marvel, is also expected to arrive in
Omaha today. Pesek is coming to
Omaha determined to show the citi
zens of the metropolis that he is some
baby at the wrestling game. He has
been training as diligently as if he
were to be one of the principals of the
main attraction, and, according to
those who have seen Pesek work.
Omahans will see a real wrestler
when they cast their optics over this
latest Nebraska phenom.
The seat sale continued to be brisk
all day yesterday and prospects are
bright for a f 10,000 house, which
would be by far the largest that ever
attended a wrestling match at the
Happy Hollow Golfers
Think Spring Has Come
The proverbial robn never had a
thing on the Happy Hollow golf bugs
when it comes to rushing the spring
season. The Happy Hollow aggre
gation got a two-month start on the
robin yesterday, five of them hiking
but to Charley Johnston's links to
knock the gutta-percha around the
course. B. N. Robertson, S. W. Car
der, G. M. Graham, Joe Polcar and
W. H. Butts constituted the quintet
of golfers who couldn't wait for Mav
and they reported the course in pretty
decent shape except in the valleys and
around the creek where the land is

munition manufacturers used 898,015
equivalent 500-pound bales of cotton

Senator Moriarty Presents
Gavel of Historic Wood
(Prom m Staff Correspondent)
Lincoln, Feb. 7. (Special.) Sena
tor Moriarty of Douglas county arose
to a question of privilege this morning
and presented the lieutenant governor
with a gavel made from a willow tree
which had been a part of the material
from which the first white man's
building had been erected in this state.
The presentation was made in behalf
of former State Senator Jeff Bedford
of Omaha, now county commissioner
of that county, who was present when
the presentation was made.
According to Senator Moriarty, the
building from which the gavel was
made was erected by the John Jacob
Astor exploration expedition when it,
passed through Bellevue a century
ago. On its return it stopped at the
place and made the building its head
quarters. Later the btiildin" was used
for a mission.
Later the first Nebraska Masonic
lodge was organized in this building
and the first Master Mason of the
lodge was Henry T. Clarke, who made
the gavel for the centennial of the
building in 1910. Mr. Bedford received
the gavel from Mr. Clarke.
In accepting the gavel Lieutenant
Governor Howard said that he cher
ished the site of Bellevue for its
beauty and for the fact that there he
picked a "beautiful flower of woman
hood" for his helpmeet thirty years
ago. .

Students of University School
of Medicine Offer Services
to President Wilson.
Fifty students of the University of
Nebraska School of Medicine pledged
their services for the formation of an
ambulance company Tuesday after
noon following a meeting called by
Dr. C. W. M. Poynter, head of the
department of anatomy. Roy T.
Maurer, elected temporary secretary,
pending the military formation ot the
organization, telephoned the names to
Chancellor Avery of the University
of Nebraska, who was asked to offer
the services of the organization to
the president
About 150 students were present at
the meeting and- all seemed anxious
to join. No seniors were taken owing
to the fact that in case hostilities
started the upper classmen would
probably be advanced to higher posi
tions owing to the fact that for the
last two months they have been tak
ing special work under Dr. J. M. Ban
ister, retired medical officer, now on
the retired list with the rank of
Special Course for Seniors.
Dr. Banister attended the meeting
of the deans of medical schools called
by the War department recently In
order to outline a special military
medical course for alt seniors. The
course is now a part of the curriculum
of the seniors at the. medical school.
A number of the faculty at the Uni
versity of Nebraska School of Medi
cine are members of the reserve medi
cal corps and subject to call for mili
tary duty. They are: A. P. Stokes,
W. E. Eggers, A. A. Johnson and
Lynn Hall
Practically all of the students who
enlisted have had some military train
ing either in high schools or at the
two-year pre-medic course at Lin
coln, which is one of the requisites
before beginning on the medical work
Even if their services are not need
ed, the students plan to continue the
ambulance organization and will ask
that some regular army man be de
tailed to drill them so that they might
be prepared for any emergency.
Dr. Banister was one of the prin
cipal speakers at the mteting, his
talk being on the nature of the work
the students would probably be re
quired to do should they be called
upon for active duty.
