CREIGhTO BARELY HOLDS
COTNER TO A TIE IN FIRST
GRIDIRON CONTEST OF YEAR
Weak Blue and White Line Fails to Stop Rushes of Visi
tors, While Back Field Lacks Necessary
Punch at Critical Times; Lahey
Is Individual Star.
Coach Johnson's squad of huskiesO
from Cotner fought Creighton to a
standstill yesterday afternoon on
Creighton field. The game wound up
a 6-6 tie. .
The game was a seesaw up and
down the fi.eld with Creighton mainly
on the. 'defensive and striving des
perately to block the line plunges and
. end runs of Dickson and Gardner,
who starred for Cotner. Lahey and
, Kelly for Creighton were the main
.. stays of'their comrades.- Time and
again they dashed in from the sec
s ondary defense line to nail Cotner
men in their tracks. , ,
- . The first score came in the middle
of the second quarter. After Cotner
received the ball in the middle of the
Jield, Neuman tore around right end
for twenty yards, Gardner reeled off
eighteen more on a similar play and
Thomas went over hte line on plunges
through right tackle. He failed to
kick goal. . '
Prospects began to, look brighter
for Creighton when the team took a
"brace in the fourth quarter. Lahey
. carried the ball around right end on a
? thirty-yard dash to Cotner's thirtv
'yard line. Lahey and Kelly then went
. through for twenty yards on straight
line plunges, Cotner was penalized
five yards for holding and in two
plays Kelly squirmed over the line.
Campbell failed to kick goal, the ball
hitting, the goal post and bouncing
; As , Coach Mills feared, the great
weakness of his team was in the line.
"Payne was taken out after he injured
his knee in the first five minutes of
play, and then Neuman. Dickson and
Thomas with their able interference

sraiil after gain. ,In the third andl

I ahey was Crehhton's particular
star. His, fierce line plunging and
spectacular end runs brought the
crowd to its feet a iumber of times.
In the second quarter he brolce away
for forty yards and it looked as if he
was of for a touchdown, but Thomas
and Dickson closed in and downed
him. In the same quarter he returned
a l;i-Voff forty yards and immediate
ly afterward went around right end
for ten more yards. In the fourth
quarter he brought the ball down the
fie'd for thirty yards, and with two
line plunges and as interference for
Kelly was the chief factor in gaining
ths lone touchdown for his team. His
tackling was hard and low and came
at opportune moments. '
Condon played a good game at cen
ter and Morgan at ri?ht tackle did
his part, but the rest of the line was
For Cotner Gardner and Dickson
did some sensational plunging, and
both. made good gains around the
ends for twenty and thirty yards,
while Neuman on left end made two
twenty-yard end runs. -

defended on straight football.

Butler and Bosse Are
Giant Fans in City Hall
City Commissioner Dan Butler and
Milk Inspector Claude Bosse are the
two Giant fans in the city hall.
"The Giants will win the sejies,"
say Butler. "I saw the White Sox
play the Red Sox in their last series
and Chicago never had any license
to beat Boston, let alone the Giants.
Of course, the White Sox may win
if they get away to a good start in
Chicago, but if New York wins one
of the first two games in the Windy
City there'll be . nothing to it, for
they 11 capture both games in Go
tham." . , .
"I picked the Giants last spring"
said Bosse, "and that pick still goes.
At the first of the year I offered to
bet 1 to 5 that the Giants would
win both the pennant and the world's
series with no takers. I ve got some

. ; Hand by Grabbing Ball
Don't use your meat hand to stop
hard hit balls that are batted back at
you.; If you do you may put an end
to your pitching career.
This lis the advice Allen Russell,
Yankee spitballerhas to offer brother
members of the pitching fraternity,
and it is well worth consideration.
Early this spring Russell reached
for hard ball through the box with
iis nude flipper. He got hia hand on
the ball and succeeded in retarding
its progress, but ; immediately after
ward he suffered a aharp para In the
first two digits of hia pitching hook,
which was followed - by numbness.
Then his hand grew cold and he had
to retire from the gama. .

Criminal Proceedings Will Be
Started Against Ticket De
frauders; Guilty Obtaining
Money by Extortion.
Chicago, Sept. 29. Purchasers of
world's serie tickets from scalpers
may be legally denied admission to
the games, State's v Attorney Hoyne
The state's attorney explained that
although the city anti-ticket-scalping
ordinance and a similar state law had
been declared invalid, he considered
persons engaging in ticket speculat
ing guilty of conspiracy to obtain
money by a confidence game and per
haps guilty of conspiracy to extort
"If such evidence is presented to me
by officials of the Chicago American
league club or by persons who claim
to have been defrauded by ticket
scalpers," State's Attorney Hoyne
sp id. "I shall, if an investigation of
rth law warrants it,' initiate criminal
prtceeding against the guilty per
sons. "I ave explained to President
Comiskey of the Chicaro club that he
has the complete legal right not to
honor tickets resold for a price in
excess of that printed upon the ticket.
It seems to be assumed by ticket
scalpers thatt hey have the right to
make money out of and deal in the
property of other persons or corpora
tions. They have no such constitu
tional right. A base ball or theater
ticket is merely a license or permis
sion to attend a place of amusement
and may be revoked upon a refund of
the money for which the ticket is orig
The 15,000 reserved seats, for which
100,000 "applications have been made,
will not be distributed to the pur
chasers until the latter part of next
week, probably two days before the
first game of the series, so as to
give the scalpers less time in which
to tempt the successful applicants
with big offers fo rtlfeir tickets.
Doping the World's Series;
It's a Cinch for the Giants
Providing the Pale Hose Lose
BY FRED S. HUNTER.
A first-class sport writer is supposed to be an expert and picking wm
ners is regarded as merely part of the Job. According to this theory, all
first-class sport writers would ,be millionaires. As we have not, however,
heard ef Rockefeller or Charlie Chaplin losing any sleep because some scribe
was beginning to corner the money market, either there are no firsf-class
sport writers or the theory is punk. Take your pick.
A couple of hundred experts have already passed out the dope on the
forthcoming clash between, the Giants and the holeproof hase. As predic

There is only one real way to dope

customers who have thoughts of risk

t hould be doped and those, who take
liced can't lose. ' i- '
In the first place, according to the
dope, the Giants are the stronger
team on paper. Doping the dope, tins
gives the White Sox-a decided edge.
Schupp,"- Benton and Sallee, the
Giants' triumvirate of portside hurl

pitchers upon whom Muggsy depends.

The Shine Ball Twins.
Cicotte and Danforth, t'ue celebrated
iihine ball twins, are calculated to
make monkeys out of the Giants with
their shiny shoots. It will happen
this way. The Sox outfielders will
i un - themselves to death chasing
three-baggers when Cicotte and Dan

Ray Schalk is called the greatest
catcher in captivity and he is counted
unnn tn nmC-i" RlirWrs nut of Giant
base runners. The Giants thus will!
run wild on th paths.
Risberg is the wtakest hitter on the
Sox team. He will be the batting star
of the series.
Jackson, Felch, Kauff, Zimmerman,
Burns and Robertson are the heavy
hitters. Their combined batting
average for the series will be .027.
Gandil is given a shade over Holke
at first because he is a veteran, while
Holke is green and likely to be ner

work which will turn the tide of de
feat into victory.
Sandy Griswold is strong for the
Giants. This makes it a cinch for the

CORNER LOT GRID
ELEVENS GET SET
Nonpareils, Twice Citiy Cham
pions, Back in Field With
High Hopes of Rspeat-
BY FRANK QUIGLEY.
Base -ball, the chief amusement
among the outdoor sports, has prac
tically withered away and a new
flower labeled foot ball will occupy the
stage for some moons to come. Many
of the foot ball devotees are of the
opinion that Sunday foot ball will be
a farce this season because so many
of the local gladiators are now work
ing for Uncle Sam, but possibly they
have overlooked the fact that the sol
diers stationed hereabouts will organ
ize three teams, which will balance the
deficiency made by the departure of the
home guards. Possibly two squads
will be organized at Fort Omaha and
another at Fort Crook.
The Nonpareils, the contingent that
has nailed the championship honors
for two consecutive seasons, will
again be back on the map under the
direct supervision of Phil Lynch
With Lynch at the helm the cham
pions will probably make a tough fight
for the championship, but the compe
tition will be stronger this year. The
nonpareils have already been mus
tered together, but any star with a rep
will be afforded an opportunity to
make good if he presents himself for
examination at the Nonpareil club.
This afternoon the Nonpareils will
practice at Melady's Meadow, Twenty-fourth
and Vinton streets.
A conglomeration of stars that are
well know locally will jump into the
limelight before many moons roll by.
This team will probably be known as
the Superiors. Such stars as Harry
Williams, Marty Flanagan, Thomas
Kelly, Frank Murphy and Oneg have
already joined this troupe. This team
will probably utilize Rourke park.
They will convene and have their
initial practice next Tuesday night.
Other teams now ready for battles
are: Shamrocks, Ducky Holmes, Foiu
tenelles, Athletics, Defenders and
Mazdas. Many squads are getting
ready, but the organization has not
been completed. Approximately thirty-five
teams of different classes will
be organized by next Sunday in
Omaha and Council Bluffs.
A mass meeting of foot ball play
ers, managers and all .concerned has
been called for tomorrow night at the
council chamber of the city hall. The
idea of the meeting is to ascertain the
correct number of teams in Omaha
and Council NBluffs, and how well they
are organized and if the proposition
of leagues proves feasible, most likely
a couple of leagues will be organized,
One of Class B warriors andanother
composed of Class C gladiators. The
promoters do not expect the Class A
fellows to join this season, but still
there is a possibility of banding to
gether six Class A teams.
No regular games are booked for
today. Only a few practice argu
ments are on the bill of fare. , Nestt
Sunday the leather egg season will be
officially opened and about fifteen
contests will be on the program. ,

Schulte's Tigers to their last year's
Kansas Aggies, a team which fin
ished strong last year, may prove to
be a mysterious 'quantity in the
conference championship contention.
Early reports from Manhattan indi
cate that Randels, all-valley end and
captain-elect, will return, along with
E. Placek, Rhoda, Clark, Dodrill, L.
Placek, Whedon, Sullivan and Slatter
ly, giving "Germany" Schultz more
veterans than any of the other valley
Sad Tale at Kansas. '
Beau Olcott, the Kansas coach, has
the saddest story of the pre-season
predictions with only three Jayhawk
ers returning. However, Kansas gen
erally manages to round recruits into
form by the middle of the season and
close with a fairly strong team even
in off years. .
Clyde Williams of Ames has not been. "
able to find out about his men, but is
certain that Ames will have a team in
the race. Captain Denfield may or
may not return and a majority of the
last year's Cyclones have been lost
either by graduation or by military
Drake will have Hoffweister, Neel,
Smith, Ro'jertson, Pendy, Saroff and
Ervin of last year's varsity. The team
finished rather weakly and Coach Grif
fifth will have a hard proposition to
whip a team into shape by stiff com
petition. Washington, which has never fig-
ured largely in the conference for
some years, was until recently without
a coach and little or no information
as to what the gridiron pastime will
amount to at that school is available.
Many of the men who were on the
teams at various times during the last
season," f. there were many shakl
ups, are in national service. J
At the opening of the season, crit
ics believe it will be a toss up be
tween Nebraska, Missouri and ' the
Kansas Aggies with the Cornhuskers
having a stiff advantage.
