TRY CURVING PILL
ON SUMMER DAY
' -" - .
Warm Weather Loosens

Druggists in the vicinity of the
Rome hotel had a run on Sloan's
liniment and Omega oil last night,
when the Omaha Western league
base ball team came back from the
daily workout at Rourke park. The
boys bad the longest workout they
have had, since they came to Oma
ha, Jackson running them through
a swift pace for fully two and a half
hours, -They tossed the ball .around
easily fof, 10 minutes and then took
batting, practice for an hour, the
pitchers taking turns in throwing.
For the first time the 'pitchers
hooked them over the platter. .
, The weather heretofore has been
"so cool that Jackson wouldn't allow
the heavers to curve the ball at all,
but yesterday they warmed to the
work and made the old pill bend
around the corners. The batters
seemed to catch theJ spirit of the
thing and whaled the curves in nice
fashion. A snappy session of 45
minutes at infield practice followed
the batting. Manager Bill went to
the outfield with his outer garden
men and gave the fellows some
helpful hints on throwing to the
plate.,. All the players had plenty
of "pep" and appeared toenjqy the
first day's real work they have had,
I When' the boys came back tiS the
hotel, following the, raid , on, . the
drug stores, Kopp, Shag "Thomp
son, Cable and Hale took a little
session with the hot packs and took
turns rubbing their arms. None of
them have anything serjously wrong
with the whips, but thoy are a lit
tle sore from the work in the chilly
breees. They will rourfd the Wings
into form in a day or so' and by
the time they face the Armours in
their second game, they think
they'll be able to whip the ball
around in -mid-season form. 4 .

TICKET SALE FOR
' OPENS THIS A.M.
Manager Franke of Audi
torium Fills Early Reserva
tion Ordersand Puts the
Seat Checks on Sale.
Ttre( tickets for the Dempsey
athletic carnival go on sale today
at the Auditorium box office. They
were received by Manager Franke
last night, and after proper sorting
and the mailing of the advance
reservations, the tickets were placed
in the box office for those who
want them. The first five rows
downstairs and the first three rows
upstairs will cost you two bones.
The next five below and the fol
lowing three upstairs, you can get
for a bill and a half. AU the other
seats will sell at a, smacker a chair.
In all the eastern towns, the Demp
sey carnival has been drawing
packed houses. - Billy McLarney,
whom fans will remember as the
manager , of Luther McCarthy, is
the advance . businesa agent of the.
show and he is expected in Omaha
within a day or two. As soon as he
lands, Billy will be asked to make
arrangements to put Harry Will
iams, the local ball player-boxer on
in the exhibition with Dempsey.
Williams in an exhibition with the
title challenger' would give the
show a little local touch and prove
an additional drawing card.
Naturally, the bout in Omaha will
be a mere exhibition, but it is a
great deal different here than it
has been in the east. McCarney has
had considerable difficulty in getting
opponents for Dempsey, except on
one occasion when a young husky
offered. to. pay $50 for the chance
to meet. Jack.' Battling Becker of
Syracuse was the fellow's name and
he told ' Billy lhat Jack must know
it would not be an exhibition, that
he was going to do his best and
floor Jack-if he -could. McCarney
asked, "Did you ever see Dempsey?"
"No," replied Becker.. "But he's got
nothing on me, he never saw me
either." When they met, the chal
lenger flattened Becker in '20 Sec
onds. ' -
A few years ago, Jack Muriroe did
practically the same thing with Jim
Jeffries, only he did succeed in land
ing a healthy one on the champion
and floored him. If Becker could
have dropped Dempsey just once,
even if he took a lacing for it after
ward, his reputation would be made
and it would mean a lot of money
for him. .. '

Had a visitor from my old outfit
in the army . yesterday morning.
Tommy;, c Gibeaut, . featherweight
champion boxer of the 41st infantry
regiment and now champion, of
Camp Funstoh, is spending his 30
day furlough with friends in Oma
ha. Tommy's term of enlistment
was over on March 28, but he took
advantage of the government offer
to re-enlist for one more year and
in so doing retained his old rating
of corporal. Tommy reports that
Harry Law, the bantam champion
of the outfit, now the boxing in
structor at Camp Funston, is going
great guns. He has appointed
Gibeaut as his assistant and often
leaves Tommy in charge of the
work while he goes off somewhere
for a scrap. Harry received a
referee's decision over Walter Jef
feries of the South Side, Omaha, in
a Des Moines 10-round bout on
According to Gibeaut, the 41st
infantry has a strangle hold on all
the boxing championships of - the
camp. Every title is held by some
member of that outfit and Tommy
says there isn't a chance of any of
the other outfits getting any of
them, for the 41st boys outclass all
the rest of them in the glove game.
Here is a, list of the titleholders at
Camp Funston: Bantamweight,
Harry Law, formerly of Philadel
phia; featherweight, Tommy
Gibeaut, formerly of Chicago; light
weight, George Strebb, formerly of
Chicago; welterweight, Sergeant
Tamplin, formerly of Minneapolis;
middleweight, Swede Lingeren,
formerly of St. Paul, and heavy
weight, Jack "Burke, formerly of
Chicago. Tommy says that any ot
the boys can get away for a couple
of days at almost any time to take
part in a boxing bout, as the offi
cers 'at Funston favor the boxing
game and encourage the fellows to
take on outside bouts.
It is likely that Denny Moore will

be Young Gotch's opponent in the
semi ivindup bout of- the' Council
Bluffs wrestling show on April 22,
when Vernon Breedlove, feather
weight champion of the world will
defend his title against Walter
Smith :,of Grand Island in a finish
match, best two out of three falls
in the main event. Arrangements
were made some' time ago for
Gotch to appear in the semi final,
but until yesterday, no opponent
could be secured for him. With
the signing of Moore, all that re
mains to make it an all-star show
is for Promoter Fiori to land a star
bout to open the show.
The next big wrestling show for
Omaha is the Cutler-Pesek match
at the Auditorium on May 12 under
the direction of Jack Lewis. Fol
lowing that event, Gene Melady will
stage Strangler Lewis and Joe
Stecher on May 23 in the same hall.
There was some little misunder-.
standing regarding the dates for the
two shows, but since the first one
will be on Monday and the other one
a week from the following Friday, it
will bring them practically two
weeks apart, not close enough so
that one show will interfere with the
other. They are both fine attrac
tions and it is to be hoped that both
are well patronized. Pesek and Cut
ler have signed to wrestle a finish
match, best two out of three falls
and "shoot" or get no money.
Stecher ,and Lewis have posted
$1,500 apiece to guarantee the match
on the "up and up." Truly, we will
have some attractions in May-
