Butler Does It.
Lincoln, June 28. (Special Tele
gram.) H Murphy Currie had not
been to anxious to (core a ahutout,
it would have been a different atory,
but Currie'a zear precrpitated a ninth
inning rally and allowed the Duck
lings to nose out Pa'Rourke'i arano.
4 to 3, in a thrilling game of ball here
Currie was nicked for a lone hit up
until the' ninth, when Gregory started
the trouble with a single. He stole
second, and then Carlisle walked. Bay
less laid down an easy grounder, but
Currie tried to head off Gregory at
third and all hands were safe, with
the bases choked. Marty O'Toole
trotted out, out walked Schmandt.
forcing in another counter. "Pug"
Griffin was easy. Butler lammed a
screaming single over short and the
winning runs came over.
Gregory was nearly as effective as
Currie. For five innings the pitchers
had turned back the batters without
a semblance of a hit. In the sixth
Brottem poled a single and Schick
followed with a double. Cooney
bumped an infield jjrouiuW and Brot
tem was extinguished after nearly
every one on the Lincoln team had
gotten in the play. Burg walked and
then Shag Thompson lashed out a
sinble, netting two runs. Burg and
Thompson pulled off a double theft
for the Rourke's final counter.

Says Joe Stecher Can Get
Bout With Marin Plestina
Joe Stecher doesn't need to Innk
to Esrl Caddock for a match," snort
ed fete Lock, manager of Marin
Plestina, Omaha grannler. when he
read an interview from Stecher in
which the Dodge lad said Gene Me-
lady had refused him a return mntrh
with the new champion. "Plestina will
wrestle him any time he thinks he
wants to go on a mat. In fart. Strrh.
er has refused to meet Plestina. Ples
tina would be tickled to death tn tan.
gle with Stecher, and if Joe wants a
bout he doesn't have to loojc to Caddock."
Loch then let out another snort and
demanded to know why all the wres
tlers are giving Plestina a wide berth.
JiODOdy will wrest e him. He'a tnn
good, I guess. I'll bet $500 Plestina
can throw in one night all the men
Caddock has thrown since he won
the championship. I mean it, too, and
here's $100 I'll post as a forfeit for
the bet if anybody wants to take it up.

DRIVE IN RACES
Famous Frenchman Wires He
Will Pilot Own Frontenac
Himself; Kirkpatrick to
Louis Chevrolet and Charlie Kirk.
Patrick will pilot the two Frontenac
entries of the Omaha speedway races
July 4. A wire has been received
from Chevrolet that he will drive one
of the .machines himself and Kirk-
It was first announced Louis and
his brother, Gaston, would drive the
Frontenacs. Then Louis '.aid he
would send Joe Boyer, the millionaire
kid, in his place. Now he has
scratched both Boyer- and Brother
Gaston and will come himself in com
pany with Kirkpatrick.
Chevrolet is one of the most pic
turesque drivers in the game. He
wears no goggles, but protects his
eyes by his famous "squint." By
squinting Louis sinks his eyes deep
Hi their sockets. Louis is the onlv
surviving member of that once fa
mous racing team of Chevrolet, Bur
man and Strang, said to have been
the rjreatest racing team ever assembled.
He occupies a niche in the hearts
of the American racing public that
no one else can ever fill. His good
natured comerade, his bravery and
Patrick will pilot the other,
daring, and, above all, his sensational
exploits of racing recklessness, have
surrounded him with a halo shared
by no other driver. He is a phe
nomenon all to himself. No one ever
will be found to rival him.
Career Lurid from Start.
Chevrolet's career was lurid from
the start. In 1908 he came to the
United States as a mechanician for
Victor He'mery, with whom he rode
in the Grand Prize. Hemery it was
who taught him his famous slogan of
"Never give up" and laid the founda
tion of his future greatness.
When H emery returned to Europe
Chevrolet stayed behind, repairing to
the French quarter in New Orleans,
where he felt at home. It was there
he was discovered by the versatile
Bill Pickens, king of barnstorming
im presarios, on a tour of the south
with the Buick racing team.
Road Race Record.
At first Chevrolet was entrusted
with no greater role than mechanician
and for months hid his -light under a
bushel, while Burman and Strang
grabbed off the glory. Finally, how
ever, at Lookout Mountain Louis got
his chance. He shot his Buick up
the tortuous incline in a five full sec
onds faster than the nearest man be
fore him despite a blowout and a
broken wheel on his first trial. From
that moment on, Chevrolet was made.
and his exploits have been filling
newspapers ever since.
He was the first man ever to aver
age better than s.eventy miles an hout
in a road race, accomplishing this feai
in' the 1909 Long Island trophy con
test. This year Louis is driving a car of
his own construction. It is very light,
weighing onl; 1,600 pounds, but very
fast. He won the Memorial day
classic at Cincinnati Tvith his car.
Charlie Kirkpatrick who will pilot
the other Frontenac, was reinstated
as a registered driver this spring after
tooling a big Hotchkiss on the outlaw
circuit. He will be remembered as
one of the dust dogs who drove in
the automobile races at the Lincoln
state fair last fall.
