Basket Ball Honors

defeated Wisconsin, 22 to 12. Minne
sota led the conference with a per

Shearman to Country Club.
John Shearman, who has been the
golf professional for the Seymour
Lake Country club for the past five
years,, has resigned at that place to
go to the Omaha Country club. Mr.
Shearman is a man of several years'
experience, and is especially good
at golf course construction. Dur
ing the past two years the nine-hole
course at Seymour club has been
transformed into an 18-hole course,
under his direction. Fifteen new
greens and 10 fair greens were con
structed, of which numbers one,
four and 13 are especially attractive
because of the general contour
work. This course will be opened
to players early this spring.
A part of the new work planned
by the Country club is an extensive
improvement of the fair greens,
which is now being started in ac
cordance with the plans outlined by

By J'KID" GRAVES.
The boxing "bugs" in America are
pondering over the announcement
that Jack Dempsey is a two-handed
fighter, that he can knock a man out
as easily with one hand as the other
and that either fist may be used to
bring hun the heavyweight cham
pionship via the knockout route on
July 4. Jack's boring in tactics, tak
ing one to land one, swinging both
fists to body or head with exception
al force is the best argument in sup
port of this contention.
If Dempsey is actually a two
fisted" scrapper, placing.jio depend-
ance on any one particular blow, he
is the only pugilist of note that ever
attained a championship or the posi
tion of immediate contender without
having a favorite blow. Every boxer,
whether a walloper or a fancy step
per has had some particular punch
that he used either as a point gainer
or a "finisher" in all his battles. The
ereatest scrappers in every division
placed every faith on the "clout" he
dubbed his favorite, some ot tneni
used the same blow, others devised
one of their own, but it is a fact that
each had one that he relied on more
than any other. . :
Many Rely on Left Jab.
The left jab was and is the favor
ite for a host of the old and present
day boxers. Jim Corbitt, Gus Ruhlin,
Kid McCoy, Freddie Welch, Johnny
Dundee, Johnny Kilbane, Ted Lewis,
Bombardier Wells. Packey McFar-
land, Matt Wells and Johnny Coulon
and any number of others placed
their faith on the left jab td win for
them. Willie Ritchie, Ad Wolgast,
Jim Jeffries, Tom Sharkey, Richie
Mitchell, Kid Alberts, Soldier Kerns
and Gunboat Smith felt that a right
cross was their best blow. Bob Fitz
simmons, Tommy Ryan, Kid Wil
liams, Leach Cross and Battling Le
vinsky fancied, a left hook. Mike
Gibbons comes as near to having no
favorite punch as any scrapper ever
known and even he appears to use
a left hook a little more often than
any other blow. Mike often varies
it with a snappy left jab, but as a
matter of fact the blows travel so
fast that no one has ever been able
to say just what blow Mike uses
Willard Has Uppercut.
Champion Jess Willard has a right
uppercut that is his best blow, but
strange as it may seem, he doesn't
use it nearly as often as he has open
ings for it. Jess has always declared
that he never hit as hard as he could
for fear of killing or permanently
injuring someone. This may be
the reason that he has not brought
his right uppercut into play any
oftener than he has. With Willard's
height and bulk behind it, the upper
cut is surely a wonderfully danger
ous blow. Jess uses it in training,
when he has yourg pillows on his
hands, but even then, his sparring
partners complain that he nearly
lifts their heads off with it when lie
lands and he usually lands it when
he tries it. They claim that Jess
has a particular 'mastery over the
Now the question arises, can
Dempsey, who has no favorite
punch, overcome the giant Williaid
with his perfect mastery of the roof
raising uppercut? Together with
the advantages Willard has of I
height, weight, reach and every oth
er physical point, in his favor, the
uppercut may prove the downfall
of the indomitable Dempsey. Jack
is about at the right height for the
most deadly use of the uppercut it
Willard elects to try it He won't
have to raise up on his toes to de
liver it, standing on his feet flatly
and' getting all the push and power
from his stout legs. Landing the
uppercut, Jess can saunter back to
his corner and let the referee finish
the job. There is no man living
that can withstand an uppercut from
Willard if he has it down as pat as
his friends claim he has. With all
that bulk and power behind it, such
a blow, delivered with all his
strength could literally lift a man
clear of the ronps and a rorl awav
J from the ring.'
Willard Careful Not to Injure. .
, During his entire ring career Wil
lard has been careful to not hurt
an opponent any more than was ab
solutely necessary to win. ' He has
refrained from the use of this won
derful uppercut because he was
afraid of tearing some one's head
off with it. He used it rarely against
Johnson at Havana, but when he did.
the big black rocked on his heels
and Jess never tried to follow up
trnv .advantage thus gained. He said
afterward that he only tried it light
ly. Will he be so considerate when
he meets Dempsey? It is doubtful,
Dempsey and his manager have
angered Jess and then again that
money-making crown goes with the
The champion will want revenge
for all the jabs and raps the news
papers have given him since the
match was first mentioned and he
will want the money that he can
still earn if he retains the title. He
will use the uppercut if the oppor
tunity presents itself, that is cer
tain. It he does and he has as great
mastery of the blow as we are led
to believe, Dempsey, look out! If
tempsey hasn't an as yet undiscov
ered defense for the uppercut or his
speed is, not great enough for him
to avoid" it, you can wager the low
est spangle on your favorite clown's
suit that Jess Willard will still be
the world's heavyweight champion
after July 4.

The Illinois legislature is expected
to take' some action on the boxing
bill some time this week and Chi
cago fans report that there are great
hopes in the Windy City of the bill
passing. At a recent show, held for
the benefit of the solons, most of
the lawmakers present expressed
themselves in favor of boxing bouts
conducted properly. The vote of
each of them for the passage of the
measure is expected to be favorable.
Iowa boxing "bugs" are in hopes
of beating the Illinois bunch to it in
a scrapping way, for the Iowa legis
lature also has a boxing bill up for
consideration and the probabilities
of an early passage are bright. The
Jowa legislators are a crowd of gen
uine sportsmen, hunters, fishermen
and some old. ball players. It is sup
posed that most of them are red
lilooded enough to like the boxing
game when properly governed.
When the wrestling followers
crowd into the Auditorium next Fri
day, they will be certain of seeing
one of the best shows ever presented
to the Omaha public. Jack Lewis,
the promoter, has realized an ambi
tion in staging an all-star show.
Every contestant is worthy of a
main attraction and every match will
be to a finish. The first two will be
one-fall affair, but there will be no
time limit on any of them. The men
will have to go till one man secures
a fall. Joe Stangl, the local 19-ycar-old
"strong boy" will meet Ben Zcr
son, the pride of York county, in the
first "go" and the light heavyweight
champion, Clarence Ecklund, will
meet George Saurers of Cheney,
Neb., in the scmi-windup. With the
prices at $1 and $2, the house should
be jam full.
The Armour base ball club man
agers are busy lining up their play
ers for the coming season .and

San Francisco, Cal. The lure of
California has proved such a temp
tation to about one-seventh of the
crew of the Dutch crusier De Ze
ven Provincien that they are said
to have decided to take "Dutch"
leave by deserting. This was dis
covered a few hours before the ves
sel was scheduled to leave port for
Amsterdam. Thirty-nine men had
been given up as out and out de
serters, and the officers of the crui
ser feared that the majority of an

The officers of the warship re

Last year after the auto show
there was a regular procession of
automobiles to Nebraska and west ern
Iowa but this year it was dif

the salesrooms of the various deal
ers and some have prepared to con
tinue the show at their places of
business where the show cars were
