TEAMS TO START
1918 YEAR TODAY
Ofnaha Begins New Pennant
Campaign With Best Looking
Team in Years; Open at
i Sioux City.
Omaha t Hlonx City.
Joplin at Topeka.
Hutchinson at Wichita.
I St. Joseph at Des Moines.
The Western league opens the 1918
. base ball season today providing the
weather man, an exasperating sort of
cuss lately, permits.
Omaha begins the season's play at
Sioux City, which again ' takes its
place in the Western league after
threatening to become a total loss.
The Rourkes start the year looking
as strong as any team in the league
and considerably stronger than sev
tral. Only three veterans of the 1917
campaign remainO'Toole, Merz and
, Nye all the others are newcomers to
the Gate city Bill Jackson, the man
ager, also is new.
But Jackson appears to be a real
manager, the best bet Omaha has had
in this capacity in several years. And
he appears to have assembled a good
class A team in a year in which real
class A teams are fast enough for
class AA company.
Jackson has a rattling good infield,
s good an infield as Omaha had in
1916, the year the Rourkes brought
pennant to this city.
Jackson at First
Jackson himself will hold down first
-.base. Callahan, former Sioux City
player, will occupy the keystone posi
tion at second with Tony Delate, an
other player of proven class A abil
ity at short. Donica at third :s a good
fielder and a nifty hitter. With Otto
Nye to occupy any vacant positions,
Omaha need fear no weak spots in the
Hanford. Bushang and Holderman
will play the outfield positions. Little
need be said of Hanford. This is the
first time he has ever played below
class AA. He will be as good an out
fielder as there is in the league.
Bashang in center comes to Omaha
from Peoria with Manager Bill. And
Bill says he will be all Omaha could
ask, so We can be satisfied that Shag
Thompson won't be missed. Holder
man in right looks like an improve
ment on any richtfielder Omaha has
had in more than a decade, not even
excepting Cy Forsythe. Holderman
is a fancy fielder, one of those chaps
ho goes back 'after a fly as easily
ts he comes forward, a Tris Speaker
achievement; he hits the ball on the
aose with a wicked cut and he is one
roaring fighter. ,
Two Good Catchers.
Behind the bat, Larry Pratt, a vet
eran of many seasons, and Cy Lingle.
a youngster, will perform. Otto Men
and Marty O'Toole are the veterans
around .whom the hurling staff is
built Fuhr and Corey are southpaws,
both of whom look like winners. Kopp
and Van Gilder are recruit right
handers who appear to have the mak
ings of pitchers. Van Gilder especi
ally looks like a great pitcher.
( Aft in all the. 1918 Rourkes look
pretty sweet and Omaha should be
a pennant contender this year.
- Omaha plays three games at Sioux
Xity, then goes to Des Moines for
four games. The return home is made

According to "Dope
Several long-lstablislied state high
School records will be broken at, the
Nebraska state track meet in Lin
coln Saturday, if the weather permits.
Although only 14 high schools are
entered for the event, some classy
style will be exhibited, if the "dope
sheet" is right.
' Lincoln High and two athletes,
Dave Noble, Omaha, and Dayton of
Gothenhtirir. arc rrmntrrl nn tn
make big showings. Omaha has some
good material to back up their hopes,
among whom are: Carson, Turk
Logan, Faynter and Maxwell. The
locals are training hard.
Gothenburg High, headed by the
stellar athlete, Dayton, secured the
honors last season and are after them
hard airain this vear. Davtnn was
somewhat out of style at the western
meet at Cambridge Saturday and
"only" managed to negotiate five first
places. While practicing recently the
uawson county atniete mane tne iuu
yard dash in 100 secondg flat, which is
slitrhtlv hrtter tlisn the Central Hich
record made by Noble.
XMelson is a valuable addition to
Omaha's team. Nelson is counted on
to win the mile and half mile runs and
to break his own record for the state.
Lincoln, however, avers that they
have an equally good man in Nichols.
Paynter will run with Nelson for
Omaha on the long runs.

OMAHA MAT FANS
TO SEE PESEK GO
More Than 100 Gate City Fol
lowers of Wrestling Pastime
to Go to Lincoln for
Many Omaha wrestling fans will
journey to Lincoln tomorrow to 6ee
John Pesek, Nebraska's newest
wrestling phenom, clash with Yussif
Hussane. late of the Balkans and
Omaha, at the Lincoln auditorium to
morrow night. It is expected more
than 100 tans from the Gate City will
be at the ringside.
The Omaha mat bugs have not been
enjoying a very prosperous winter.
Nary a match except the Stecher
Peters go has been here this winter
and the local followers of the bone
crushing pastime are craving excite
ment. They expect to see it in Lin
coln tomorrow night.
The bout with Hussane is Pesek's
first shot in a nationwide campaign to
demand the attention of the mat fans
of the country as a contender for the
championship. , Martin Slattery,
Pesek's manager, recently announced
Pesek was ready to meet any man in
the world for anything up to $10,000.
Hussane was the first man to accept
the defi, although it is not recalled
that Hussane spoke of the $10,000.
If he, beats Hussane, Pesek expects
to coninue his drive against all the
other top-liners in the game and clear
the path to, the championship of all
obstacles if that be possible. Charley
Peters, the Papillion carpenter, will
be at the ringside tomorrow night to
challenge the winner of the bout so
if Pesek wins it is probable a Pesek
Peters match will be programmed. -

of his match with Ed Strangler Lewis
in New York, last Friday, was brought
up. The match was a two-hour draw,
the -third decisionlesg match Stecher
has wrestled with Lewis.
"Lewis is a much improved wrest
ler," declared Stecher; "He is stronger
than he was when he wrestled me
in Omaha and he has learned more

no trouble escaping it. I still be

Stecher will take a short rest on his

clash with Earl Caddock for the
championship. He will remain at
