Last Conflict of the Season Today
The last Western league game of the 1917 season will be
played at Rourke park this afternoon. Two games will be
played, the first game starting at 2:15. Merz and OToole
will pitch for Omaha.
After the games this afternoon, Omaha goes to St. Joseph
for four games and to Des Moines for four more. That ends
the season, unless, of course, Omaha should win the pennant
for the second season, in which event the Rourkes would take
part in the post-season series.

of ball for the home boys, but his
support was very wobbly. Mr. Kallio,

Recover at Hot Springs; Must
Take Draft Examination Again
Earl Caddock, world's champion wrestler, is beginning to recover from
the illness which has held him "back all summer.
Caddock is now at Hot Springs, S. D., where he intends to remain the
rest of the month. The tonsils which gave Earl so much trouble are be
ginning to heal and he is gradually ridding his system of the poison which
developed from the ailing organs.
Caddock is scheduled to appear before the draft exemption board at
Atlantic, la., October 5, for a second examination. The champion was re
fused at the first examination in August, but he was advised to report for
a second test October 5.
. Providing Caddock again fails to pass the army examination and his
physical condition justifies it, a heavy winter wrestling campaign will be
mapped out by his manager, Gene Mclady of Omaha. In such event it is
probable Omaha will see the champion in a big match or two.

Ben Shaw has lost his position as
the leading hitter of the Western
league. But it was another Rourke,
Ward Miller, who took the honor
away from him. i
Miller, Shaw and Marty O'Toole
are now the three leading hitters of
tne western league.
Miller is swatting the pill at a .339
clip, which gives him almost a twenty
point margin aver Shaw, who is hit
ting .321. Marty O'Toole has at
tained the highest average of his
career, with a mark of .316.
Jones of Wichita, Butcher and Dale
of Denver and Connolly of St Joseph
are the only batters in the league
except the trio of Omahans hitting
in the charmed circle. .
Marty Krug's batting mark is still
Dave Williams, who has been
showing the league how to play right
field with a first baseman's mitt, is
climbing steadily and has now reached
a batting mark of .275. ,Nye has
dropped from the .300 class to ,271.
Shag Thompson has boosted his mark
to .265, while Fin Yardley has fallen
off to .261. Tony Brottem is down
to .243 and Phil Cooney is trailing
the field with .227.
Omaha is easily leading the league
in team batting. The Rourkes also
lead in hits made and total bases.
They have made 369 hits and 472 total
bases for 203 runs. Omaha, however,
ranks sixth in fielding.
McCredie Has Scheme for
Two Leagues on Coast
President. McCredie of Portland
does not approve of the plan of Presi
dent Berry of San Francisco for a
three-league combination to provide
base ball lin the far west next year.
Instead he advocates two leagues of
six clubs each, the Pacific Coast and
Northwestern retaining their 1917 cir
cuits, the two leagues to play inter
series, which would mean in effect a
twelve-club league. His schedule
would run twenty-two weeks and each
city would play in every other city
but once. Such a plan would mean
much saving in mileage.

Folwell Expects to Have
Strong Eleven at Pennsy
Bob Folwell expects to produce a
strong foot ball team at the Univer
sity of Pennsylvania this year. He
says: "Not a team has canceled from
our schedule except West Point. I
will have a team and a good one. Of
course, we lost nearly everything be
cause of the war. But this is true of
every college. Penri is no worse off
than its rivals."
Poor Showing of Yanks
Means No New Baliwick
The poor showing of the Yankees
this year probably has killed the
proposition to build a new park for
the club. Plans were well along last
winter to erect the plant at the close
of the 1917 season, but the falldown
of the team has hurt interest in the
Yanks and it is not likely'anything
will be done for another year at
Kansas City Signs New
Hurler With Nifty Name
The Kansas City Blues have a new
pitcher, a left-hander.. His name is
Karosen or Carlson. The first is
correct, but sounds too much like
kerosene, so he prefers to be known
as Carlson. The fans won't care
about his name if he can pitch an arti
cle that can't be hit.

Talk in Los Angeles is that Otto

his new trial in fast company.
Chief Bender Draws $50

Smith, Kilduff and Krueger Make

Smith has established himself as a regular with the St. Louis Browns
and Fielder Jones declares Earl is one of the coming great stars of the
Smith has played thirty-five games in the big show. He is batting 264,
despite a two weeks' slump. He has been making long hits, too, as his
record accounts for five triples and seven doubles.
, Kilduff is going great guns at Chicago.' His fielding has been sen
sational and his batting mark is .267, which is some record for a shortstop.
Peterkin leads all shortstops in the National league except Hornsby in
hitting..' , - ' ..' -
Krueger, with Brooklyn, is only hitting .240, but Ernie is just getting
Into his stride. He's the kind that needs lots of work and his batting
record slumped when he wasn't getting it ' Now that he plays fairly reg
ularly Ernie's eye is recovering.
Krueger was caught in the early draft, but Smith and Kilduff escaped,
so Omaha fans expect great things of the latter two when next year rolls
around. : -
That the University of Nebraska
will have one of the best foot ball
teams in its history is the belief of
Omaha alumni of the institution.
The Cornhuskers have not been
hard hit by the war. Many Husker
athletes have answered the call to
the colors, but most of them were
graduates, ineligible to play this fall
anyway, or substitutes last year,
whose places it will not ot hard to
Moser and Kositsky are the only
two regulars from the eleven whose
enlistment in the army leaves holes
to be tilled. Moser leaves a gap at
center and Kositsky at guard. It is
believed, however, that Coach Stew

ging these holes.
Six Veterans. . ,
Stewart has six veterans around
whom to build his team. They are
Captain Shaw, Riddell, Qtoupalik,
Knoaes, jjobson and Look.
Shaw will fill one of the tackle do
sitions. Riddell and Otoupalik will
hold down the ends. Rhodes will
probably be played at guard on the
offensive and end on the defensive.
Dobson and Cook are backfield men.
Stewart has aworld of material
coming up from last year's freshman
eleven, including a quartet of back
field men. who oromise to be nothing
short of sensations. They are Shei-
lenberger. my. McMahon and Kel
logg. All four are said to be 10.2
men and possessed of wonderful driv
ing power, Flaying on the treshman
squad last year these backfield men
ripped the varsity squad to pieces.
It is believed they will make up the
Ends Taken Care Of.
Thus are the backfield positions
and ends taken care of. Rhodes last
year showed himself to be almost as
great a defensive .end as the wonder
ful Chamberlain, while Riddell is a
seasoned performer who can be
counted on at all times.
The only .- positions which will
greatly worry Stewart are center, one
guard and one tackle, and he has such
men as Munn, Janda, Hubka . and
Henry coming up from last year's
freshmen team. Janda and Munn are
reputed to be above the average.
The Cornhuskers face a tough
schedule, with games with Iowa,
Notre Dame, Michigan, Kansas, Mis

they have the material to make good

Cincinnati Reds until repurchased re

assured Manager Cusack he will be in

Short Leg Keeps Coast
Star from Big Leagues
Manager Bill Bernhard of Salt
Lake says that but f- Earl Sheeley's
bent leg he could easily sell the
youngster to the maiors for $15,000 or
$20,000. The Bee boss regards Shee
ley as about the sweetest thing that
he ever saw in the way of a first
sacker. The kid is death on low
throws, and it takes a mighty wild
infielder to throw a ball over his
head. He also is a dead sure rangy
fielder on batted balls All this despite
the fact that he is handicapped "by
his left leg. which was broken just
above the ankle and did not grow to
gether straight. It has been sug?
gested that the-leg be broken again
and reset, and in that way collect the
$20,000. Bill seems willing, but
Sheeley might offer objections.

Fulton is Chap to Lick Champion,
Declares Carl Marfisi at Canton
That Fred Fulton, Nebraska boy, has the stuff with which to apply a
trimming to Champion Jess Willsrd is the belief of Carl Marfisi, well known
Omaha sportsman who saw the Fulton-Morris scrap at Canton Labor day.
Marfisi had been a follower of the ring; game for many years and is some
thing of an expert at picking winners, so his dope is good to tie to.
"Fulton has the footwork of a featherweight" writes Marfisi to the
sporting editor of The Bee, "is cool under fire, has a perfect left hand
and a right cross that will drop any heavyweight living.
"Critics may hesitate to concede Fulton a chance with the champion,"
continues the Omaha man, "because of his showing with Morris, but the

Tight Race in Southern -Starts
The tight Southern league race is
likely to cause a row before it is over.
Charley Frank at Atlanta charges
that Johnny Dobbs at New Orleans
is stacking the cards, failing to play
all its games with Nashville, while
juggling the schedule to get in all

habit of saying wild things, intimates
that if Atlanta loses out the Cracker -City
will withdraw from the Southern
league and form a new circuit to the
east, with Jacksonville, Savannah; etc.

made up of the present Texas league
cities, indicates one might infer, that'
what the Southern league needs is' a
good strong hand andemind td keep
it running smoothly. , ,' ;

prevail probably has been 'dispelled
and there will be some revised opin- .
ions as to the wealth accumulated by ,
those who backed the club in past
years. It is admitted that no further
attempts will be made to finance a
ball club in Fort Wayne until there
is a change of conditions. v
