EXPECT LARGE ENTRY LIST For the first time In in history the Nebraska Gol association's champion ship tournament will not be played .in Omaha. . The Lincoln Country club is the place and June 25 is the time selected for this year's classic? The number, of entries will deter mine the length of the tournament If the entries equal last year's there wilt be two qualifying days beginning Monday. If less players enter the lists (he tournament wilt not start until Wednesday. It is an admitted belief that Omaha golfers will not respond to the tourn ament call in such large numbers as they have in the past. Fifty will com prise this city's delegation tnis year, it is thought But Lincoln's entry lists wilt be enhanced, as will the grpups representing the out-state towns, which heretofore have , sent only one or two players. Frank Hale of the Metropolitan as sociation wants to form a new board of control and will call a meeting for that purpose. He also believes that the excess cash in the treasury ought to be used to buy a trophy bowl, which would be played for annually. Those present at Tuesday's meet ing were: S. R. McKelvie, president, and Billy Folsbm, Lincoln Country club; Zach Marr, Fremont; Jim Christeiansen, Council Bluffs Rowing association; John Redick and W. J.

(Peck) Griffin, with Wil liam Johnston, doubles tennis cham pion of the United States, is visiting in Omaha. Griffin is engaged to an Omaha girl, Miss Marian Kuhn. Griffin will not defend his title this year. His business will not permit him to engage as actively in tennis as in the past, so the championship team of Johnston and Griffin has dissolved. Johnny Strachan, who won the clay court championship in Omaha several years ago and formerly Griffin's part ner in the doubles, will play with Johnston this year.

HAY PLAY AT FIRST BASE Earl Smith, last year the class of the outfielders of the Western league, was yesterday returned to Omaha by the Chicago Cubs, to whom he was sold last fall. While a lot of local fans believe Mitchell pulled a boner in returning Earl and keeping such men as Mann and Flack, Omaha is glad to see Smith come back, because he will be a big aid to the Rourkes. There is a chance that Smith may play first base for the Rourkes this year. Rourke said yesterday if Brokaw lives up to expectations in left he might try Smith out at first. He believes Earl would fill the posi tion in a most capable manner, as he has always been good on ground balls. Whether Smith will return to his old spot in left or play first depends upon Brokaw and Henning. Which ever goes the best will be retained and Earl probably will play the other position. If aboth men deliver the goods Rourke may have to find an other job for Smith. Smith will arrive in Omaha Friday with the Chicago Cub second team, which will on that day play an ex hibition game with the Rourkes, He will be dropped off here. Rain yesterday caused cancellation of the game between the Rourkes and Creighton. , Greater, Omaha League Holds Meeting Tonight President Kaiman has called a meet ing of the Greater Omaha league to be held tonight in Park Commis sioner Hummel's office in the city hall.
