    Ty Cobb's Off to a Good Start and the Boys Know What to Expect
Washington University Seeks!
Huskcr Coach as Director
of Athletics
Lincoln, March 31. (Special.) The
University of Nebraska is very likely
to lose the services of Dick Ruther
ford as assistant coach next year,
with at least two western schools
ailing for the former Huskcr star.
Washington university, St. Louis,
wants Rutherford to take complete
charge of the athletic department at
that institution. Rutherford made the
trip and looked over the situation,
hut lias arrived at no decision. The
St. Louis job would give him a boost
in salary and at the same time put him
in supreme control of the athletic af
fairs of the school. Rutherford draws
$-',0Ut) a year at Nebraska.
The Huskcr management, while re
gretting to lose the services of Ruth
erford, will throw no stones in his
path to prevent him from securing a
merited promotion. The personal re
lations between Dr. Stewart and his
assistant are the most cordial and
the Husker all-year coach could be
depended upon to give Rutherford a
good boost in anything he went after.
Until Rutherford reaches some de
cision, no attempt will be made to
complete the coaching staff at Ne
braska for the next season. While
Stewart has been re-elected, no action
has been taken with regard to the as
sistant director of athletics, Guy E.
Reed, and the assistant coach. It is
understood that both Reed and Ruth
erford will be re-elected if they care
to remain. t
Base Ball Slow.""
Drafting a base ball team is a little
more of a job than Husker athletic
authorities anticipated. A big squad
has been working out during the en
tire week, but Coach Rutherford, who
is in direct charge of the base ball
men, has made little progress towards
assembling the team. Rutherford
wants to put ,in another week before
he selected any of the members ot
the team.
The battery situation is giving him
the most concern. He has a big class
of candidates for hurling honors, in
cluding Harry Smith, Mackey, Ber
quist, a South Omaha High school
lad; John Riddell and Pickett, but the
outlook is none too promising, as all
of the material is inexperienced.
For catchers Rutherford is using
"Doc" Shaw, Ed Shaw and Ted Rid
kll, all big men, but fairly active. He
does not anticipate he will have much
trouble in finding a suitable back
stopper among the trio.
For the other jobs there is a big
hunch of material, but no attempt was
made during the last week to line it
Pleased With Track Team.
Reed is lining his track squad up
and is bctter'pleasSd with it than he
has been for years. In the two-mile
event Glenn Graff has all the ear
marks of a comer, while Captain
Overman is one of the best milers
in the Missouri Valley conference.
I'ot-il believes that Overman is a sure
,:nt winner in that event. In the
hail mile Grau, Jackson and Bryans,
the Iattt-r an old Omaha High school
lad. arc the best of the bunch.
In the quarter-mile Owens and
Tuwnscml have the call and should
prove to be point winners. Both have
lad a year's experience and showed
up well in the Missouri Valley con
ference last year. '
In the hurdles Finney is the best
man the Huskers have had in years.
He did exceptional work in the Kan
sas City indoor meet and Reed is con
fident he will deliver.
In the weights, Shaw, Reese and
Lon Graff can be depended upon to
land places for the Huskers. The
sprints, pole vault and jumps are Ne
braska's weak points. Werner is the
best man in school in the sprints.
Kimball, Jones and Adkins are new
men for the pole vault. Werner and
Flint are working out in the jumps.
Grau, Overman and Owens are the
only letter men on the squad, but
Reed is banking on his youngsters
strongly to bring home the bacon.
The Husker mentor has scheduled
a class day meet April 14, at which
he will pick his varsity squad.
Pardello Was Willing
To Take Paderewski On
Carl Marfisi, Gene Melady's handy
man and for many years prominent
figure in boxing and wrestling circles,
was spinning yarns with a number
of friends at the Merchants hotel
one evening last week. The name
of Leo Pardello, once famous Italian
wrestler, who has appeared in Omaha
a number of times, came up and
prompted Carl to tell this story on
the grapplers:
"Pardello about twelve years ago
was working at Minor's theater in
'ew York. He was meeting all com
ers and a theater manager from
Schenectady came down to the
nctropolis to see Pardello and make
Leo an offer for a match at his show
louse. He asked Pardello if he would
ntertaiu wrestling one match for
"Pardello, Jn his Italian dialect,
iskcd him if he had, ever had any
null class performers at his theater.
The manager informed him that a
diort time prior he had I Paderewski,
Mellia and Kubelik.
"Pardello looked up, muttered
humph, ' and then said, 'Well, I never
;ear who those people is, just the
same, you make one big tournament,
match up the three, and the one who
win. I will come to your theater and
wrestle him for a finish.'"
State Golf Association

Directors of the Nebraska Golf as
sociation will hold a meeting in the
rooms of the Omaha Commercial
club Tuesday noon. The place and
lates of 191 annual tournament will
be decided and a new constitution
and bylaws suhmitted for adoptionj
i idus io exjenu me ouration ot tne
annual tournament to give ample op
portunity for all entrants to partici

be discussed.
Dig Up Old Tackle,
Fishing Season On
The fishing season opened in
Nebraska today.
All of the rivers, lakes and
streams in the state are open and
most of them are said to contain
many fish. Because of the warm
weather in March it is believed
the finny tribe will be easily
coaxed to nibble at the bait sub
mitted, and some of the best early
fishing in years is anticipated.
Many of the lakes have been
stocked with fish in plentiful quan
tities by the state.
A law has been introduced in the
legislature delaying the opening of
the season on bass until June 1,
but it is still being debated and
the disciples of Izaak Walton who
like to pursue the game fish plan
to have considerable fishing while
the aolons are still arguing.
Holding of Missouri Valley
Meet Brings Cinder Path
Game Back.
Three things are calculated to con
tribute mightily in the drive for in
terscholastic track records in Omaha
and Nebraska this year. First, all
meets here are to be non-handicap
events; second, superior organization
of track festivals throughout the
state, and, third, interest of the coun
try in scholastic events will be cen
tered on Nebraska.
For years Nebraska has been handi
capped, as far as national prestige is
concerned, by the introduction of
handicap tourneys in the state. Rec
ords made in such meets, although
some of the most brilliant track and
field men in the country participated,
are unofficial in the eyes of those
who compile national records. This
has had a tendency to lessen interest
in Nebraska, to the end that the Corn
husker state has practically dropped
into complete seclusion in interschol
astic competition. It is gratifying to
know that the handicap will not be
incorporated in any meets here this
In five years past few Missouri val
ley records have held prestige in the
zone of national reputation. For a
greater number of years valley inter
scholastic events have been practically
ignored. This condition is about to
be relieved. Centralizing in Omaha,
the second largest city in the valley,
Missouri valley officials are to stage
the greatest athletic field meet yet
held in this section. Leading up to
this event state meets are to be held
in each of the states participating.
In Nebraska minor sectional meets
are to lead up to the state event.
Enthusiasm at Central.
Coach Mulligan at Central High
called a meeting of track prospectives.
A full hundred answered and the next
night, although the state meet is six
weeks away, a half dozen of the hope
fuls were out in trunks ready for the
season's grind.
, In the state the interest is just as
intense. At North Platte, Kearney
and Fremont, track centers for dec
ades back, are to be held sectional
meets the first week in May. At the
close of spring vacation in the com
ing week, most of these schools will
have their track squads hard at work.
Seven veterans survive from last year.
Two dozen others who failed to get
in oh the pie at the state tourneys are
also ready to contest honors again.
With this spirit here and a similar
vein in Iowa, Missouri, Kansas and
South Dakota, there is little else to
expect except the greatest track
meets in history.
Jack Ness to Play
On Semi-Pro Club in
Chicago This Year
Jack Ness, holder , of the world's
record for consecutive hitting, who
played first base for the White Sox
last year, has quit professional base
ball and gone into business in the
manufacturing end of the United
States Ball Bearing Manufacturing
This does not mean, however, that
Ness will not play base ball any more,
for he will play first base and act as
captain of the United States Ball
Bearing team, winners of the Chicago
Mercantile league pennant last year,
which team has been entered in the
Chicago Commercial league for the
season of 1917.
One thing is certain, however, that
Ness will lead a real base ball team
this year when he dc:s play, for on
the United States Ball Bearing team
are no less than seven ex-professional
Earnest Dennis, catcher; Billy Har
ley, right field, and Harry Glazer,
pitcher, all played with Joe Tinker on
the Chi-Feds. Red Torkleson made
a most enviable reputation pitching
in the Western association and Char
lie Jensen was given a tryout last
year by the Cubs. Happy Rudolph,
second baseman, was formerly cap
tain of the University of Chicago
team. '
Ty Cobb Will Play Right
For the Tigers This Year
There is a possibility that Ty Cobb
will play right field for the Detroit
Americans this season. Manager Jen
nings believes that Sam Crawford is
through as a fielder and expects to
use Harry Hailmann as the third
man in the outfield. Jennings says
centerfield is easier to play than the
other gardens and plans to use Heil
mafin in that position, while Cobb
is shifted to Crawford's place.
Ed Hanlon May Lose His
Ball Park at Sioux City
The Commercial club of Sioux City,
which is back of the movement to
erect a new armory for the town s
military companies, has its eyes on
the Sioux City ball park and if it can
make the deal Ed Hanlon's club will
have to move. The fans have been
demanding a new ball park anyway,
for the present one is far too small.
Pa's Hopefuls Make First Ap
pearance of Year in Game
With Semi-Pros.
Unless the weather man unmerci
fully turns the raging elements loose
so that the athletes would become
entirely congealed and spectators
could not lamp the proceedings un
less protected by overcoats, ear
muffs and portable stoves, Pa
Rourke's hopefuls, who will strive
this season to repeat the success of
their predessors, in capturing the
Western league gonfalon, will make
their first appearance of the year to
day. The Rourklets are scheduled to
engage in mortal combat with Fred
Bradford's Brandeis team at Kourke
park at 3 o'clock this afternoon.
Manager Krug will send his strong
est lineup against the semi-pros and
will probably use at least four of
his twirlers, including a couple of the
new men so that the fans will he able
to get a line upon the athletes upon
whom they depend their hopes this
Wayne Barham and Murphy Currie
are two of the new hurlers, who will
probably work for at least an in
ning or two today. Both of these
young chaps are right banders with
plenty of smoke fcnd curves and Krug
believes they will be winners in the
Western this year. Currie especially
looks promising. Young Wyman may
be given an opportunity to show his
stuff this afternoon, too.
New Man Behind Bat.
A new man will be seen behind the
bat, Tony Brottem. If Brottem lives
up to expectations and shows the
same kind of stuff he has been the
last week in training, the fans wilt
forget all about Ernie Krucger be
fore long.
In the infield," Oak Helming and
Johnny Watkins are the men. Hen

Bradford promises to give the leag
" uers some real competition with his
semi-pros. He has all of last year's
stars back with a couple of additions
and he is confident his men will put
up a real battle. Morric Olson, who
is a pretty keen hurler, will be on
the firing line and that means the
Rourkes will have to be on the job
to get their hits. The teams will line
up as follows:

Les Darcy Swears
He is Worth Only
Three Thousand
Of all' the accusations against Les
Darcy only one seems to have cut
him to the quick and that was the
charge that he was worth $100,000.
He was much cast down by the
printed statement as to his worldly
possessions and his despondency was
increased when Governor Whitman,
during their conference at Albany,
pointedly asked the Australian if it
was true that he had $100,000 in cash
and real estate in Australia.
Darcy emphatically replied in the
negative, but in order to make his
denial more positive he has signed an
affidavit to the effect that he has not
more than $3,000 worth of property in
his native land. In his affidavit Darcy
aLo attempts to set himself right in
reference to other charges against

First String Transferred From
Speedway Stables to New
Quarters on West Side.
The first big string of horses has
been moved to the Benson plant, fu
ture home of Omaha harness racing,
from the Speedway track at East
Omaha. Within the next few weeks
the entire Speedway stables, number
ing more than half a hundred head,
will be ar'liome in their new quarters,
ranked as among the best in the west.
Included in tfie initial string to
make the change to the Omaha Driv
ing club's new plant were several fine
animals owned by Otis M. Smith,
secretary of the driving club and a
prominent figure in Great Western
circuit racing. The Otis Smith-Joe
Hildreth horses total about a dozen
head, all of them good ones.
Some of the harness steppers which
are now to be found at Benson are
Governor V., 2:l7'i; Cambridge Belle,
2:2'4; Maharba, 2:25; four Archdale
colts, a Bergen (2:06) 3-year-old

Aubrey, 2:09, "Doc" Hall's dandy
little trotter, and Sadie S., 2:07,
the fast trotter owned by Nick Ronin
of Fremont. Dr. Hall is an Omaha
horseman of note. Both of these ani
mals are to be trained for the season's
battles by W. B. (Billy) Taylor, a
harness racing expert of high repute
among Omaha horsemen.
The famous string owned by Tom
Dennison, headed by the one and only
Hal McKinney, is to be moved to
Benson as soon as the stables are put
in shape there. After numerous de

Wrestling Fans Wonder if One
Hold Will Triumph Over
a Thousand.
Will one hold triumph over a thou
sand is a question puzzling wrestling
fans, who are looking forward to
the Joe Stecherarl Caddock match,
which will be held at the Omaha Au
ditorium, April 9, with a keen eager
ness. Joe Steelier has often been called a
one-hold wrestler. This Mias come
about because Steelier has employed
his famous scissors hold so consist
enily in removing opponents from
his path on the way to the wresting
title. It isn't quite accurate as Steelier
uses other holds. He has, for in
stance, a wrist lock and a double wrist
lock and an arm hold, all of which
he has used to help his scissors in
downing foes. But in almost every
match the Dodge phenom hai con
quered his man with the aid of the
scissors and his attack is always to
T;t that scissors. Thus he has been
called the one-hold wrestler.
Caddock is the very antithesis of
Steelier. He has been called the
wrestlerwith a thousand holds. He
is said to have used all the holds
ever defined or dreamed of in his
bouts. The scissors is one he uses
and unlike Stecher doesn't stick to
the body scissors, but uses it with
Disputed Issue.
Heretofore Stecher's one hold has
always been a sufficiency. He didn't
need any more. It was worth a hun
dred of other fellows. But . ill it be
enough when he runs up against the
Iowans, who is said to have a thou
sand holds? It's a disputed issue
which will remain a subject for argu
ment until the night of April 9, is
Gene Melady, who is promoting the
go, is making all arrangements to
handle the crowd so that there will
be as little congestion as possible
and no squabbles over scats. Harry
Walker, doorkeeper at the Orpheum,
has been signed to actually handle
the crowds the night of tl.j match.
No general admission seats will be
sold until 9 o'clock the night of the
match, so considerable of the confus
ion will be avoided this way.
Melady yesterday teceived a mes
sage from Governor W. L. Harding
of Iowa, saying he and a party would
come to Omaha to attend the match.
