STAY AT HOME BY
BEAM SAINTS
Take Daniels' Men Into Camp,
10 to 3; Makes Seven Vic
tories in Nine Games on
' Local Lot.
Bill Jackson' tribe wound up their
very pleasantstay it home yesterday
afternoon by licking the spots oft the
unsaintJy Satnti from St. Joseph, 10
to 3, in another' windstorm battle.
This time the win4 caressed the
cheeks of the Rourkelets instead of
.the phoney Saints."
Harry Gaspar, celebrated as a pho
tosfraoher and occasionally as i
pitcher of base ball, was the victim.
Harry's trouble occurred in the fifth
inning. Harry aged 'greatly in this
' ttanza. It made him almost as old as
Cliff Curtis, his sprightly comrade.
Six runs made1 the Rourkes.
It was a very wild, weird inning. It
all started when Donica dropped 'a
windblown single into center held
Han ford bunted. Gaspar tried to
catch Donica at second. And oh,
. how he threw it Result: Donica on
third, Hanford on second.
Gaspar Errs Again.
Defate's single scored Donica and
Hanford galloped to third to come
home on Holderman's sacrifice fly
which Marr dropped. Defate, how
ever, got caught at - second. Then
Callahan hit one to right, sending
Holderman to third. He scored when
Lingle beat out a bunt and Caspar,
after holding the pill a while, decided
to throw it It was a bum throw.
Kopp singled to right and Callahan
tnd Lingle scored when Bachant let
t t
riinuni uuuw ii away irom nun.
Kopp went to third on Bashang's hit
ind scored on Jackson's squeeze bunt
, Two in Second.
Omaba scored two in the second on
a walk to Defate, Holderman's sacri
fice, Lingles double and Kopp's
single. ' An error by Bruebaker,
Lingle's sacrifice and Kopp's double
scored one in the fourth and in the
eipiU Bashang's triple and Jackson's
lorg sacrifice fly counted one.
a Kopp , held St. Joseph safe at 1 all
times and was never in danger of los
ing the fray.

Brandeis Will Battle
'.f'- Lincoln Cleaners Sunday
.The Brandeis Stores and Lincoln
Cleaners and Dyers will be the attrac
tion at Rourke park Sunday.
former Clashes between these crack
semi-pro teams have always been
close and hotly contested, last sea
son's games going to the locals, 1 to 0,
and 3 to 2, each game being replete
with fast fielding and clever pitching.
Ulson, tor the locals, and "Dusty"
Miller for the visitors, will be the op
posing slabmen. Being two of Ne
braska's premier twirlers, backed by
the pick of the state's semi-professionals,
another close and interesting
contest is assured.
Australian Swimming Stars
' .Sail for the United States
San Francisco, May 16. Miss Fan
ny uurack, holder of all women's free
style swimming records, and Miss
Anna Wylie, world's champion breast
stroke swimmer, sailed today for the
United States, according to a cable
received here today from Sydney,
New South Wales. '
A tour has been arranged extend
ing from the Pacific to the Atlantic
coast, during which the Australian
girls will meet the best of tht Ameri
can girl swimmers.
Notes of the Game
Omaha has played nlna game at horn
end ha won aeven ' of ,thm. Tolerably
good, tolerably food.
Don't overlook the fact that
mad thre hit. And he shut his eye too.
Sum hitter, that boy.
The 100 mark In attendance at a
day gam at Rourka park ia yet to be
reached. Two-fifty I about tha best Omaba
stem able to do.
Mueller (tola second In tha fourth hii.
Kopp was taking a wlndup. Tb Peoria
Kid (earn to have trouble watching the
batter "and th baa runner at the -same
tlma. , , .
Somebody ha bean deallnr 'em from th
bottom of tha deck. Tha Kru Park band
failed to appear acheduled. However, no.
body mlaaed It. Ther wan't anybody there
10 miss u. .
No gam today. Tha Kourkea s-o to nt
Joseph for a four-game erles; then they
return, and Tuesday tha twilight ball atari
lilt Hutchinson making lta first annearanea
or ins season.
Holderman made a fancy one-handed run
ning catch of a short drive by Marr la th
eigntn. Doc aeema ta be developing Into
considerable outfielder despite a year of
aoaence irom in gam.
Th iroreboard 1 now a total loss. That
part which did not blow down Wednesday
blew down Wednesday night with another
eciioa oi th fence. Which should be
pleasant news to th Insurance agent.
Bert Daniel wa canned from tha game
In th alxth for getting too sassy. Then
In th ninth he waa chased clear out of tha
park. Bertie said thing no person named
oeriia anouia ay. He wa very shocking.
Tony Defate had a terrible time at short
stop. He started poorly, then began to re
cover form and then mussed things up
again for a conclusion. He made four er
rors all told and then got into the middle
of a snappy double play and pulled soma
pretty nifty topa. That baaa ball, though.

Would Yank Into Army
Players Who Shirk by
Taking Shipyards Jobs
Chicago, May 16. Base ball play
ers of the major leagues who have
sought employment in shipyards
and other war industries in an at
tempt to evade military service
"should be yanked into the army by
the coat collar," President Ban
Johnson of the American league
said tonight.
President Johnson said he had
taken up the question with Charles
M. Schwab, who has assured him
that no overtures would be made to
ball players in Class A-l to engage
in shipbuilding work. The Amer
ican league executive also said he
would take up the issue with other
government officials to learn if the
players now engaged in the ship
building and other war industries
have been granted exemption from
the selective service, law.
"The American league has lost
more than 70 players in the draft
and through enlistment, and expects
to lose more, but it does not approve
of the players trying to evade mili
tary service," President Johnson
said. "Some of them apparently
have been badly advised."

country, the wife strenuously opposing bis
wish, is the Story of the patriotic drama
called "The Coward," in which Lillian
Kingsbury, Ned Dano and company feature
at the Empress. The principals are splendid
performers whose work makes the sketch
stronger. Aside from its value as a most
Interestingly entertaining sketch, it answers
perfectly the question, "Is a man's first
duty to his family or his country?"
In the Silent Drama.

Ferguson as the star will be shown at this
theater today and balance of the week.
The scenario was written by Charles

of Songs" Is the fact that Frank Loses,
who now appeara in chief support of Miss
Ferguson in the film, waa scheduled to
portray that character on the stage, but
owing to sudden illness could not fulfill his
engagement. Crauford Kent, who played
with .George M. Cohan In "Broadway

ment that Jack Pickford will bo the attrac
tion at this theater today In "Tom and
