Sirnd Sacker' s Pinch Blow
Captures a Close Con
' tost in the Ninth
1'hil Cooncy's pinch clout for two
basts pulled Thursday's game out of
the fire in the ninth inning, and
Omaha captured the contest from
Denver 0 to 5.
The game went into the final round
wish the score tied, S to 5. Otto Merz
set hack the head of the Denver bat
titiR order in one, two, three fashion.
Otto Nye, the new third sacker,
opened the ninth for the home club
by beating out an infield hit to W-uffli.
IVoof-woof made a noble effort to
field the ball, but Otto was too fleet
of foot for Woof-woof to make con
nections. Dave Williams forced Nye at sec
ondbut Phil Coon ey sent the pill
sailing into centerfield. Williams
scooted home and Cooney ran as far
as second base, .By that time Williams
h?d crossed the rubber so Cooney
called it a day. He probably could
have made a triple on the blow had
it happened at any other time.
The little second sacker cut consid
erable ice in the home victory. He
made three hits, two of them doubles,
knocked in two runs, including the
winning tally, and secored two
Otto Merz started bad, but got bet
ter as the game progressed and to
ward the wmdup was hurling superb
Denver started the fray by mark
ing up one tally in the opening stanza.
A walk to Oakes, Williams' error on
Kellehcr'a bunt, and. McCqrmack's
single was responsible lor the score.
The Rourkes, however, manufac
tured two tallies in fie home half of
the inning so nobody felt bad. Krug
singled to left and scored on Shag
Thompson's -triple to. center, while
Shag came charging .home on Tony
Brottem's sizzling double against the
left field boards.
Denver put over two in the third
on some solid hitting. ; n -
Doc Manser started the bombard
ment by cracking a double to left. He
scored on Oakes' single. Oakes was
nailed trying to stretch the hit into
1 a double, but after Kellcher grounded
out Butcher punctured the scoreboard
"with a double and scored on McCor
mack's single. . N
1 Take Lead Again.
Omaha again took the lead in the
fourth. Nye walked, but was forced
at second by Williams. Williams,
however, stole second and scored on
Cooney's single. Cooney counted on
Merz' double. '
.5 Kelteher's double McCormack's
third single, Williams' error and
HartzelFs single counted two more
for Denver in the fifth. Omaha knot
ted the score in the seventh on
: Coonevs double, Merz" sacrifice and
Nicholson's infield out, and tied it in

FOUR WINNERS OF
YEAR TO RACE HERE
Mulford, Chevrolet, Cooper and
Vail Will Clash in Match Race
July 28 or August 4.
Ralph Mulford, winner of the
Omaha race July 4; Ira Vail, winner
at Minneapolis last Saturday; Louis
Chevrolet, winner at Cincinnati, on
Decoration day, and Earl Cooper,
winner at Chicago, will clash on the
boards of the Omaha oval July 28
or August 4 for supremacy of the
Fred Wagner veteran American
Automobile association starter, will
promote the event. It was-Wagner's
first plan to have Chevrolet, Mulford,
Vail, Oldficld. De Palma and Boyer
clash in an invitation race. But Old
field demanded a large guarantee, no
matter whether he won any place or
Sot. so Wagner passed the veteran up.
Then he conceived the idea of
matching the four winners of the year
and yesterday it was announced the
event would be held.
This will be the first time in his
tory that four winners will clash.
Mulford won the 150-mile event at
Minneapolis. Cooper led the field
home in the 250-mile derby at Chi
cago, while Chevrolet drew down first
money in the 250-mile classic at Cin
cinnati. Cooper's First Appearance.
Of the four drivers, Cooper is the
only one Omaha has never seen. Mul
ford and Chevrolet competed in the
race July 4 this year, while Vail drove
in the local classic in 1916.
Mulford and Vail will drive Hud
son Super-Six machines, Cooper will
pilot a Stutz and Chevrolet a Fron
tenac. It is Wagner's plan to have each
driver bring two machines to Omaha.
Then if one machine blows a tire or
encounters mechanical trouble, the
.driver will leap into his second ma
chine and race on while pitmen re
pair the first car. This will eliminate
the element of "hard luck" and will
make it possible for all four drivers
to fight if out to the tape.
Speed enthusiasts believe the race
will prove a great success.

DEMANDS DEATH OF
MRS. RENA MOONEY
District Attorney Asks Extreme
Penalty for Woman Charged
With Implication in
(By Associated Press.)
San Francisco, Cal., July 19. Mrs.
Rena Mooney smiled several times
today as she calmly listened to Dis
trict Attorney Charles M. 1?ickert re
peatedly demand the death penalty
for the defendant when he resumed
his opening address to the jury try
ing her for murder resulting from a
bomb explosion here last July which"
claimed ten lives.
"If this jury does its duty anarchy
cannot live; if if fails law and order
cannot live," Fickert asserted.
"We have shown this defendant aid
ed in the commission of this crime
and death is the only adequate pen
alty. She has been a leading member
of a group of anarchists who called
themselves the 'Blasters;' treacherous
snakes whose creed is crime and rev
olution and anarchy," he said.
Fickert turned his attack to Thomas
Mooney, husband of Mrs. Mooney,
who is under sentence of death for
the bomb murders, and then to Rob
ert Minor, treasurer of the Interna
tional Workers Defense league, which
financed the present and former trials
of bomb defendants.
"This league might justly be called
'the International Murderers league;'
its object is to wring filthy money
from ignorant people," he declared.
"Only the hand and mind of a crim
inal could draw such pictures," he
said, indicating a cartoon Minor testi
fied he had drawn for the Blast.
"This defendant and her co-conspirators
knew they couldn't live in
this country if the military forces
were strengthened and they sought to
hasten the revolution, incited by Al
exander Berkman's editorials and
"The tragedy last July was the cul
mination of their criminally blood
thirsty conspiracy," Fickert charged.
