In Omaha to Visit Friends
Jack Reynolds, well known welter
weight wrestler, who formerly made
Omaha his headquarters, but more re
cently has been promoting matches
in Cedar Rapids, la., passed through
Omaha yesterday on his way to North
Platte, where he joins an atnietic
show. . . N
Revnolds worked Out of Omaha two
years ago when the Gate City was a
hot-bed of wrestlers. . He is one of
the best welterweights in the game
and with the athletic show meets all
comers, despite size or weight. It is
said the Reynolds' show is one of
the few where an outside man is not
employed and that Reynolds really
makes good on his offer to throw
any comer in 10 minutes. 1
"I see that draws are becommg
popular in wrestling circles," said
Reynold. "Funny things, these
draws. I've been wrestling for seven
years and not once did I ever wrestle
a draw. ' I don't understand 'em. But
they seem to be the thingthese days,
for I see they've all doing it."

Armours; Little Ceremony
Marks the Opening '
By FRANK QUIGLEY.
Well, the Omaha Amateur Base
Ball association got off on the right
foot with a good start, although under
cloudy skies and with good crowds
in evidence and if there is anything
in beginning right, the season should
be all the most optimistic.
As to the other end of it how the
squads will run on the green sward,
that is to be yet determined. The
fans that are devotees of the various
leagues are, busy compiling the dope,
but are afraid to let their traps cough
up an answer. - Even the wire-acres
are not making iny predictions. Who
ever said that amateur base ball is in
for a bad year nd that because of the
war would not receive the old atten
tion, certainly stepped off the street
car like a women.
, No Slackers.
The inaugural names staced Yester
day evinced no slackers amontr the
fans and fanncttes. In the face of a
mammouth war anniversary cele
bration and Liberty loan demon sit
uation the fans are still able to
donate some of their valuable time
and seek recreation watching the
amateurs display their wares. s
Since these are the initial argu
ments since Uncle Sam plowed
through the amateurs, everything
should look rosy for those who have
anxiously waited for signs of the
public attitude towards the amateurs
New Scare of Prices.
It also was the initial offense for
the association parks to try out the
new scale of war prices on a larKe
cr&wd. Fans seemed to accent the
new tariff with good grace. The only,
kicks heard were those incident to
delays In making change. The tellers
to date have not had much experience
in handeling Uncle Sam's small boys.

the Armours, succumbed before the
