The new first baseman answers to
the name of Henning. He was ob
tained for Rourke by Charlie Moll,
owner of the Winnipeg club, which
delivered Hal Erokaw to Omaha, but
hasn't been able to deliver Benton yet.
Henning was formerly with Green
Bay in the defunct Wisconsin-Illinois
league. Moll was president of the
league then. When the W-I loop
aviated, Henning quit base ball, but
when Rourke sent out the. S. O. S.
for a first baseman Moll got in touch
with Henning and induced him to
come to Omaha.
Moll declares Henning is the goods
and Marty Krug declared after look
ing him over that he looked like he
would deliver. Henning reported
yesterday and worked out with the
rest of the hired hands.
The Sabbath was no day of rest
for the Rourklets. Krug had, his

With the -weather as tine as it was
yesterday, Marty did not intend to
lose a single day.
Today practically all of the Rourkes
will be in camp. Hal Brokaw and
Johnny Watkins are due tip from
Kansas City and Wayne Barham is
also carded to arrive.
Krug will work his athletes pretty
hard this week if the weather con
tinues good, because he has a game
scheduled with the Brandeis semi-pro
team for next Sunday.
The work of clearing the field of

snows left a lot of ice on the south

cleared out by today or tomorrow
and the boys will be able to work out
in the infield by Tuesday or Wednes
