THE BEE: OMAHA, TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 19, 1918.
Sports to Be Re-established
on Broader Scale Than
Ever Before; Base Ball
Leagues to Resume.
New York, Nov. 18. Sport gov
rrning bodies, both amateur and
professional, are preparing for re
rival of competition the coming
year. Reports from all sections are
that authorities and organizations
are planning to re-enter the field of
their particular activity and aid in
re-establishing sport on a broader
basis than previous to the war.
Major and minor base ball leagues
will resume next spring. It is not
likely that the game will immedi
ately reach the heights to which it
had climbed when the world war
first took toll of America's most
popular sport, but problems relative
to .high railroad rates, loss of star
players and maintenance of dupli
cate parks in some cities will be
solved between now and next April.
Many officers of the golf and ten
nis associations are in service and
it is impossible to secure definite
statements regarding the 1919 cham
pionship tournaments. Sentiment
among the players and followers of
these sports is overwhelmingly in
favor of a restoration of title tour
neys next season.
In track and field athletics it is
hclieved the meets will be held next
May and June as usual.
Base ball and rowing, two other
major sports at the college during
the spring, will also be revived.
Foot ball may be expected to resume
its normal place in college sport
next fall, as by that time it is
thought that the colleges will have
resumed their normal functions.
Postal Service Established.
Paris,. Nov. 18. (British Wireless
Service) The postal service has
Seen re-established throughout the
whole of France and Belgium.

Chicago Grain and Provisions
Chicago, Nov. 18. Sharp new advances
In the corn market today resulted chiefly
from attempts to anticipate the pries ef
fects of the hunger necessities of Europe.
Quotations closed firm, 2?3Tts net high
er, with December $1.281.28 and Jan
uary $1,294 1. 30. Oats finished lH92Vle
up, and provisions varying from unchanged
figures to a rise of 35 cents.
Reports from London that arrangements
were being made for the dispatch of a
number of German vessels to the United
States to convey foodstuffs to Germany did
a good deal to give fresh Impetus to
speculative demand for corn. Despite ag
gressive selling, which made the market
waver at the outset, the buying broadened
out, and was intensified owing to wet
weather which threatened to retard the
domestic crop movement Profit-taking
sales caused a decided setback later, but
the fever to purchase became dominant
again, and carried the market higher than
before. The top for the day showed an
extreme bulge of mors than 12c within a
Oats strengthened with corn. Hedging
pressure, though, checked ths gains. Be
sides, export bids were somewhat out of
Provisions were lifted by the upturns In
grsln sryl hogs. Th transient break la
corn led, however, to a reaction.

Cat if A vsry fair Monday's run of
cattle n ho wed up today, about 12,800 head,
but this was 4.000 less than a week ago
and nearly 9.000 less than a year ago.
The market opened In much the same
shape that It closed last week, buyers
taking the weighty and good quality
steers at fully steady prices and bidding
unevenly lower on the medium and com
mon cattle that made up the big bulk of
the offerings. It was the same with the
cows, good kinds selling readily at fully
steady figures, and canners and cutters
being slow sale and uneven. In feeders
both yard traders and country buyers
went after the fleshy and desirable qual
ity grades In good shape, but the light
and low grade stuff was hard to move
and generally lower.

New York, Nov. 1$. The stock market
was In a state ot suspended animation dur
ing the greater part of today's session,
prices for the most part rising and falling
within circumscribed limits, although gains
prevailed at the close.
Sentiment among ths professional ele
ment was strongly influenced by last
week's sdverse bank statment, the re
duction of actual reserves giving fresh
point to the need for continued restric
tion of credits. Labor problems also as
sumed greater prominence.
Reviews submitted by competent trade
authorities over the week-end ware again
of Irregular tenor, but conservative opinion
inclined towards an Indefinite continuance
of "wartime conditions In the steel Industry
and affiliated lines.
Western and southwestern sections re
ported mixed general business conditions
srlslng from the termination of the war,
this being partly borne out by a slight de
crease of railroad tonnage. Movements of
foodstuffs were facilitated, however, by
United States Steel and Marine pre
ferred divided the honors of the day, the
former rallying easily in the last hour from
Its one-point decline and closing at a sub
stantial fractional advance, while Marine
held Its four-point rise, despite another
meetinc of the directors, at which "no
progress" was reported In the proposed sale
of the company's British tonnage.
Rails made partial recovery from their
extreme setback of 1 to2 points. Motors
and Oils were irregular at best, with the
several war groups and specialties, dis
playing uncertain tendencies, aside from
Industrial Alcohol, which rose three points.
Sales amounted to 550,000 shares
Most divisions of the bond market wcrs
disposed to ease, Internationals as well as
Liberty issues, on a marked falling off in
dealings. Total sales, par value, aggre
gated $9,600,000. Old United States 4 s
gained per cent on sales, declining as
much on call.

Beatrice has a long string of vets
in the line, but has twice auffered
defeat. York shattered the opposing
line and chalked up a final count of
38 points. This was an off day for
the Gage county team. Lincoln
crossed Beatrice's final line twice.
Two of Central's stars returned
yesterday, Chris Crowell, , guard,
and Dave Noble home on a fur

team any more this year. Campbell,

As a further precaution, Profes
