SUNDAY PLAY ON
Jack Frost Causes Postpone
ponement of Many Games;
Pitchers Fear to Cut Lose
,on Frigid Day.
By FRANK QUIGLEY.N
Evidently Jsclc Frost is playing hide
and seek with the members of the
Omaha Amateur Base Ball association
for it is a sure plunge he was in the
neighborhood yesterday. Lool at
mosphere conditions were respon
sible for the postponed games.
Some of the cherry smashers are
not in love with nursing a sore lunch
hook and aching bones, consequently
these sugar coated animals found a.
more approp late place to spend their
Hours ot leisure yesterday atternoon
But the balance are hungry for
base ball and Christmas weather does
not toss them off the track and even
the fans are ready to gobble up the
brand of base ball dished up, even it
it is necessary for them to jig around
in their heavy togs in order to re
main comforlable during the show.
Some Brave Jack Frost. .
Of course, the stands were rather
bearish, but there was quite a bunch
that decorated the side lines at the
various municipal lots.
With one exception all the games
in the major league were postponed
the exception being the bout between
the Krajicckj and the Council Bluffs
All the battles billed in the Ameri
can league were pulled off. The
largest score in this league was com
piled by the Sample Harts. Said crew
danced over the pan with 26 runs,
while the opposition gathered
in this battle McKeague, a
stranger in these woods, introduced
himself by belting the pill to the
reiHOte corners of the lot. Durinp
the argument he collected a pair of
drives for the limit and two for the
half way station. Pinault twirled
grand ball, keeping the slugging
Trimbles low in the belt 'eni column.
All Boosters Play.
The Booster league came over the
hill with a clean slate. Four battles
billed and all delivered.
The four.glimmed Riggs Optical
gang battled for eleven rounds with
the Townsends and when the curtain
was pulled it was found that each
contingent had picked up seven
counters. This is the initial knotted
battle of this season going eleven
Only 44 runs was 'the total am
massed during the Harley-Davidson-Homesteads
jamboree. The Home

copped the heavy end of a 23 to 18
In the Intercity leaorue the'Dailv
pews children were busy pumping air
to make tne grade around the paths.
This bunch rolled up 35 runs while
the Graham Ice Creams hooked 4.
Well, ice cream doesn't travel at a
fast clip in cool weather, just wait
until the torrid days roll around and
the Graham Ice Creams wjll uncover
the real article.
t Another wrangle went over the
limit jthe quarrel between the Dresn
ers, and Phillips Dept. Store, the
Dreshers copping the long end in the
10th stanza by 8 to 5. -

Although the Kraijiceks of

tail-enders to many when the

"Upstairs and Down" at fhe Boyd.
"Upstairs and Down." a comedy in
three acts, by Frederick and Fanny

Robert Van Courtland....Mr. Orlando Daly
Elsie Hunt, a widow.. Miss Roberta Arnold
Elisabeth Chesterton. .Miss Ann MacDonaJd
Alice Chesterton, her debutante sister

Louis L Tour, O Keefe's man
Mr. Louis Christy
A matron of some experience and
considerable range of observation
says the Hattons did not invent any
thing when drawing the "baby vam
pire character lor their snappy
comedy; they merely took her from
life, and that the sort is not at all
uncommon s in these supersophisti
cated times. At 19 one may be but
a debutante, and demurely submit to
being called a child, and yet know a
whole lot. And why not, when "Up
stairs and Down" and similar feats of
dramaturgy are spreading the knowl
edge that used to be gained in otlier
ways? The child who attends the
theater with anything like assiduity
nowadays may easily be much wiser

Declining io register amazement at
any suggested precocity on part of a
New York girl who knows her way
about, one may yet obtain a lot of
real satisfaction while watching this
cleverly put, together play. It may or
it may not express with fidelity some
thing pf the doings of the rich who are
idle, in a manner of speaking, but who
employ their waking hours more in
frivolity than in useful efforts; who
do a lot of indecorous things, but ex
pect from their servants th primmest
of demeanor at all times, and express
horror at the thought of anything
going on below stairs of the nature
of the program of the day upstairs.
Allowing for the frankly disclosed
inconsistencies of the play, one may
rejoice that it is handled by a com
pany of exceeding ability. . Robert
Luis, as the vagrant breaker of hearts
who is at last caught in the net, is
handsome, dashing and of a manner.
and gets better as he leaves off flirt
ing and becomes serious in his love-
making. Paul Harvey, a mountain of
a man, conciuaes a reauy good ex
hibition of good-natured, sincere
awkwardness with a bit of cave man
wooing that brings shouts of glee
from the watchers. Louis Christy, as
valet to the popular Captain O'Keefe,
like master, like man," makes love
to everything wearing petticoats be

His LaTour is one of the glistening
gems, in the! ensemble of brightness.
rred liden, often commended for
sterling work; Mr. Ashton. Mr. Far-
jeon and Mr. Guin all have a share
in the excellent result attained.
On the other side, Miss Frances
Mann does the baby vampire to the
finish; she lies and cheats, and finally,
in the moment of her triumph she re
lents; through pity of herself alone,
and following her selfishness to the
end, removes the obstacle that stood
between . two Joving hearts, her
sister's and that of the captain. Miss
MacDonald plays the sister with judg
ment and good effect Frances Ring
is very good as the wife who wearies
of the social round and seeks her hus
band's sidCat last, while Miss Arnold,
Miss Sinrott and Miss Ivans add to
the joy of the evening in many ways.
Vaudeville at the Orpheura.
The Orpheum appears toe cele
brating home-coming week this
week. The five prominent acts of the
Sven on the bill are old favorites in
maha. - . '
First olace troes to Will Cressv and
Blance Dayne, who are making then
annual visit to theOmaha playhouse,
this time appearing in Mr, Cassy's
satire on newspaper liie, "The Wyom
ing Whoop." This is the sketch
which deals with the Wyoming editor
who pacifies his irate subscribers with
the aid of a "six-guri." But while the
story remains the same Mr. Cressy
has re-vamped the lines to introduce
more modern topics despite the fact
that the war wasn't on when Wyom
ing editors carried their artillery
dangling from. their waists. But the
audience didn't notice it or perhaps
didn't care, being thoroughly satis
fied with the sketch anyhow.
After a brief excursion into the
field of musical comedy, Harry and
Emma Sbarrock have returned, to
vaudeville with their "fair ground
fakirs" skit - The Sharrocks will al
waya find favor, because , they per
form about as startling feats of men
tal telepathy as any such, acts with the
additional merit of providing 20
minutes of genuine fun.
Paul Morton and Naomi Glass' are
seen once more in their pleasing
musical satire "1918-1950." Al Shayne,
with tne capable assistance of an un
named co-worker, furnishes several
minutes of rollicking enjoyment with
his nonsensical burlesque. William
De Marest and Estelle Collette play
the violin and cello well and De
Marest's comedy capers and trifling
talk provokes constant - merriment

Flour and Meal From Spoiling
. Inasmuch as hot weather produces
spoilage in flours and meals, Gurdon
W. Wattles, federal food administra
tor, offers suggestions to prevent
losses during the hot weather months.
Especially flours and meals contain
ing high percentage of fats, moisture
or outer coatings of the grains are
liable to spoil ad to conserve these
food commodities Mr. Wattles sug
gests: "Buy in small quantities, as out
lined by food rules and regulations;
see that the flours and meals are in
good condition when bought; keep in
a cool dry place at all times; use tins,
or covered jars for containers, scalded
and perfectly dried; use two contain
ers if possible, always putting fresh
purchases in a clean container and
never mix the residue from the pre
vious purchase with the fresh lot;
sterilize before putting into the con
tainer, by placing the meals or flour
m a shallow pan and heating slowly
in an oven, then cooling before put
ting into the container. '
