DATES ARE MADE
FOR ANNUAL CITY
Maple Crashers Will Clash in
Championship Event February
8, 9 and 10; Women
The annual Omaha city bowling
tournament will be staged February
8, 9 and 10 at the Farnam alleys.
Plans for the annual championship
event were made at a meeting of the
bowlers at the Omaha alleys yester
day afternoon. ,
The City Tournament Bowling as
sociation was organized with L. M.
Holliday as president and Harry Eid
son as secretary. Eidson was com
missioned to draw up the schedule
and arrange most of the details. He
was voted 10 per cent of the prize
money as partial recompense for his
.For the first time, women bowlers
will participate in the event. One
night will be set aside for the fair
Another new feature of this year's
tourney will be the absence of all'
star teams.. This is expected to in
crease the number of entries. The
reorganization of the Greater Omaha
league, dividing the best bowlers
among the ten teams, gives teams in
the smaller leagues an equal chance.
The weaker leagues, such as the
Mercantile, Union Pacific, etc., will
be permitted to pick their strongest
pin tumblers for the tournament to
compete against the regular lineups
of the Greater Omaha teams.
Entry fee will be $1.50 per man for
each event. Entrants will be required
.to shoot across six alleys. Entries
may be sent to the Farnam or Omaha
alleys or to Mr, Eidson at the Omaha
National bank. ?

deering Munitions Ordered by

and 100,000,000 cartridges ordered in
this country by the Dutch govern
ment, the United States., it was ex
plained today, had no intention of
casting any reflection upon the good
faith of Holland.
intimations in caoie aispatcnes
from Holland that this government
feared to let the guns and ammuni
tion be shipped lest they find their
way into Germany are regarded here
as traceable to German propaganda
which has for its nuroose the strain
ing of relations between the United
States and the Dutch government.
To meet a military emergency in
Europe, the guns and cartridges were
commandeered by the United States
government and dispatched to one
oi the allied armies. This action, it
was pointed out, was in conformity
wiui international law. .

"You, too, now as mothers,
wives and sisters, are called upon

already have borne this burden
with true American steadfastness.
Remember that the war must be

Aafter Stirring Debate Wash'

Wage Increase is Accepted;
in Force During War.
Indianapolis, Ind., ajn. 20. After
two days of stirring; debate, the
United Mine Workers ot America in
biennial onvention yesterday, by
overwhelming vote, ratihed the Wash
ington agreement of October 6,
which grants substantial watte ad
vances to bituminous coal miners
and provides penalties for violation
The agreement became .effective
November 1. last, and remains in
force until April 1, 1920, unless the
war ends before that date, in which
event it automatically terminates.
I he fight against approval, of the
agreement was based on the auto
matic penalty clause inserted by the
joint conference of operators and
miners at Washington and aonroved
by Fuel Administrator Garfield. It
fines men who violate contracts by
going out on unauthorized strikes,
Mine owners failitur to enforce the
clause are also penalized under its
John P. White, former nresident
of the organization, and now assist
ant to Dr. Garfield, spoke for an hour
in defense of the action of the in
ternational officers in accepting the
clause. He charged that the attack
on the clause was in reality ah as
sault on him in furtherance of organ
ization politics. The clause, he said,
took away none of the rights of the
miners, but on the other hand was
essential to the success and perpe
tuity of the union. He severely ar-
raigned Alexander tiowatt, president
of the Kansas miners, who led the
