"Peck" Griffin, Tennis
, Champ, Visits in Omaha
Clarence 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.

Star Outfielder to Be Dropped
Off in Omaha by Chicago
t Cnbs Friday.
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
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. ,

It's the thing for Easter or for anys other daytime dress
occasion. The cost is small; the satisfactions knowing you're
correctly dressed is alone worth the price. Rich all-wool fabrics,
fine tailoring and linings add extra value.
