BONUS OFFER IN
GO STILL STANDS
Marfisi Announces $1,000 Of
fers for First Fall in Stecher
Zbvszko " Match Is
,r t.. Still Good, i r
The 'same conditions, which were
planned, mapped out and agreed upon
for the tangle scheduled for May 28
before Zibby was given'i taste of the
atmosphere at thennore or less shun
ned Ellis Island, will prevail when Joe
Stecher and Wladek Zbszko clash at
the Omaha Auditorium the night of
June 12. , '.-
Carlos Martisi, who is to get a de
layed crack at $1,200 already sunk into
the venture, announces that every
thing will be the same, in fact the
match will be held June 12 as though
merely a postponement of the May 23
event. .. .
The articles of aereement remain
the same. They are that the match
shall go to at least a decision. A time
limit of two hours and 30 minutes
so that the wrestlers wont get tired
out, also the fans, in fact mostly the
fans has been established and it
neither wrestler has earned a fall in
this time, Referee Ed Smith, who al
most lost his job, will give a decision.
' Banus Still Stands.
Marfisi also declares the bonus of
fers still stand. These offers call for
a bonus of $1,000 to the wrestler ob
taining the first fall, and a total bonus
of $1,500 if one of the wrestlers wins
two straight falls. This is a bona fide
offer,1 Carlos declares, not the
camouflage of a slick press agent.
Prices will remain the same. Price
range from $ls10 to $5.50.. These prices
include war taxes. ; ; ?
Seati ori Sale. ;;
Seats are now on sale at the Audi
torium, Merchants hotel, Partem ho
tel, Merrht'a drug store, and other
points and, according to Carlos, the
sale is brisk. When the original
match was called off the advance sale
was nearly $5,000. This, Marfisi points
Outr is an indication of the wide
spread interest taken in the go and
he expects the idvance sale this time
to reach $7,000 or $8,000.' Ifa view of
this, Marfisi advises the mat fans who
hope to see the match to place their
reservations immediately if they ex
pectto get into the building on June
12. ' .: .' ' V

Games to Entertain U. 5. Troops;
Private Homes Are Thrown Open
. London, June 3. What the British
people have accomplished "in an ef
fort to do something tangible and
systematic to make American sol
diers feel at home in Great Britain,"
is summed up in the Weekly Dis
patch: A project was launched for British
towns to "adopt" American towns for
the purpose of systematized hospital
ity to American soldiers and sailors.
The ministry of iniormatiotv-. ap
pointed Sir Randolf Baker as director
of the Anierkan troops' welfare in
Sir Edward Ward, director general
of voluntary organizations, an
nounced a systematic plan for hospi

'(By Associated Press.)
New York, June 3. Losses inci

Mott declared. These also must be
Sectrt ing ' an adequate supply of

to the association's work as a well

It is planned that expansion of the as

with the developments of the army
and navy, and to do this it will be
necessary to transport overseas by
September 4,000 additional workers,
1,000 of whom' should be women, he
added. Enough men-will be recruited
eventually, it is hoped, to allot one sec
retary to each 300 fighting men, Dr.
Mott said. Workers now are being en
rolled at the rate of 1,000 monthly.
