Batting Rally in Ninth Comes
Too Late to Win Game for
Locals; Score Nine to
Nothing Till Seventh.
With the score 9 to 0 in the sev
nd one pass, with Pitcher Schinkel's
making two scores in the seventh
on three walks and one two-base
hit. Again, in the ninth, they tried
to start something, but could only
land three more runs on four hits
and one pass, with pitcher Schinkel's
It was a game that set the fans
wild at times, and the umpire came
in for his share of the "crabbing."
Eckman did pull a few weird ones,
but he was impartial, giving Okla
homa" City as much the worst of
the decisions as Omaha. His work
on the- bases could not be com
plained of, but behind the bat he
was a little on.
Each club used two pitchers,
Schinkel relieving Schatzman- for
Omaha, and Applegate taking Ston-
ers place In the sixth inning,
Schinkel was the first batter for
Omaha and slammed one to deep
center, for a two-base hit. He tried
to stretch it to a three-bagger, but
found the ball there an instant ahead
of him in the hands of Hauk. It was
close and Hauk blocked Schinkel
off the bag to make the putout and
' took the Omaha player's spike on
the shin, cutting a deep gash.
The game was delayed about five
minutes to allow the players to give
Hauk first aid. The wound was
bathed and bound with Umpire
Eckman's handkerchief and Hauk
resumed the game at the old stand
and played good ball from that time
on, even running. Score:

CORCUS CHAMPS. 1
LOOKS like Jacques Le Dempse has only snitched the circus cham
pionship from Jazz Willard. With the signature of nis fist still damp
on Jess's chinpiece, the new champ signed up for a hitch in Sells
Floto circus. Jess will retire to a career of privation on his dollar-spangled
ranch, while Jack grabs a spot on the programme between the two-nosed
ostrich and the dog-faced bloodhound.
This circus stuff is dragging the ring down to the level of defeated
presidential candidates and other chautauqua curios. It is gumming the
traditions of the twenty-four-foot thumping park. If John L. could pipe
a champ with sawdust on his feet instead of rosin, the old boy would
punch all the strings off his golden harp. Maybe John is playfhg a shovel
instead of a harp, but, anyway, there are more harp players in Sheol than
there are in Heaven.
In the old days, no champ would soil his No. 12 dogSwith sawdust
unless the lumberyard breakfast food was in the right place. No champ
ever lowered himself by deserving the nimble barroom for a three-ring
circus with two of the rings represented by pawn tickets. He might lamp
cerise complexioned elephants and thousand-legged corpuscle perspiring
behemoths, but only as a spectator. Not as a fellow performer.
This stuff of playing matinees with rope-skipping chimpanzees and
boxing kangaroos is all right from the income tax angle, but how can a
champ be a. champ in a circus. The giant is bigger than he is, the dwarf
is smaller, the bearded lady has more whiskers and the monkeys have
him cheated silly when it comes to hanging by the tail and throwing
cocoanuts at the moon. He can't eat bottles with the glass-eater, he
can't outjump the alumni of the flea college, and he can't juggle like the
trained seals. He is living as much as the living skeleton but he ain't as
skeltony by about as many bones as a terrier could dig up in a shad
cemeteK'. The Circassian walnut beauty has him out-blonded by a vatful
of perolide, while the What-Is-It has him whatted to a whisper.
We used to believe in this circus stuff until we piped the glass eater
hollering for a corkscrew to open a bottle of stuffed onions. It was
meal time under the big top and the sword swallower was grabbing a
bawling out from his wife for eating with his knife. Showing that the
life is a delusion and a snare like the paint on a secondhanded flivver.
In addition, the champ who cops a job with a circus is taking work
away from the crownless prince and other birds. It's a soft job though.
Just like being treasurer in the Daylight Saving Society.
Bob Fitzsimmons never would have stood for a ring where the referee
wore a two-tailed coat and packed a twenty-mule team whip. John L.
refused a chance to do his training with a lot of blue-nosed ring-tailed
sparring partners. And a circus caliope wasn't Jim Jeffries' idea of a
lullaby at all. Willard was the first cuckoo to imagine- that Barnum was
a descendant of the Marquis of Queensberry. They knew they couldn't
reach the top in the circus game as Zip had too long a start on them.
Maybe by invading the circus game the champs figure they are getting
even with the boxing kangaroo who took the bread and butter away from
Gus Plaacke, Boer Rodel and a lot of other kangaroos who weren't
Can't blame a bird for grabbing the smickers in big gobs. Still, there's
many a morsel that would slip through a pitchfork that you could pick
up with an oyster fork. Leading the cotillion with a bunch of zebras,
snake eating Hottentots and. cootie-faced penguins isn't going to help a
champ's chances of breaking into the Four Hundred, as those sapos
haven't any use for their poor relations.
Willard didn't lose much .prestige by joining a circus, but he lost all
he had. A champ might not see where he is losing by clowning around
with a combination zoo-foolish factory.
Which makes the situation something like (Grant's tomb.
can see it but Grant.
With the ' Rourkes cominsr home
for a nineteen game stay, last
Wednesday was decreed a "Booster"
day. The fans boosted into Rourke
Park to the amount of 550. Thurs
day was almost as good with 454.
Yesterday 492 crowded in. Can you
blame Pa Rourke for wearing that
sickly smile when the subject of at
tendance at his ball park is
broached? It is certainly an out
rage the support a team of this kind
Omaha undoubtedly has the best
teeam in the Western league and if
they don't win the pennant, it will
be because of the hard luck that
seems to be pursuing the club and
not on account of the poor quality
of ball they are presenting. Even
when they lose a game, as a rule,
they outplay their opponents and
only the- real old fashioned "tuff
luck" causes them to lose the con
test. It has been suggested by a
great number of ardent' fans that
Omaha does not want a real club.
It gives the fans nothing to roast
and they won't go to the park unless
ihey can "roast."
Getting away to a bad start be
cause the players were not in con
dition and could not get in condi
tion in the cool climate of the
northern end of the loop, when they
did get in shape, together with the
addition of a few new p' vers, they
began to burn the leaeue "up until
they Lave landed a solid berth in
second place. They slumped a lit
tle when the old "hard luck'' got on
their trail again and went down to

third place, but the real fighting
stuff they are made of proved
superior even to the bad breaks and
they battled gamely into second
They are in this position, open
ing with Tulsa today and with any
reasonable breaks at all should
overhaul the Indians, or pass them,
during the stay at home. During
this long stay on the home lot, the
Oklahoma City club, 'now leading,
is on the road and must face all
sorts' of tough breaks. They cannot
possibly do any better away from
home than the Rourkes can on their
own grounds, so it looks as though
we should climb right into the van
long before we have to travel again.
Instead of having one day desig
nated as "booster" day, we should
make every day a booster day. How
is Prexy Rourke going to keep a
winning ball club in Omaha if he
can only get 400 or 500 fans out
there every day? If the fans don't
begin to patronize him soon, we
will have no Omaha, ball club and
we wont deserve any.
