THE BEE; OMAHA, FRIDAY, AUGUST 8, 1919.
TWO FORMER BIG
TO STOP TULSA
Oilers Win, 4 to 1, Getting
Ail the Breaks in a
Good Game; Two
Once more, the breaks of the
game went against Omaha, and
Tutsa walked off with the second
game of the series safely tucked
away. The final count was 4 to 1,
Again, the Omaha hitters made the
most extra-base hits, but they
availed the locals nothing. Every
extra-base hitter died on the bases,
though one of the hits drove in the
only run the Rotirkes scored.
Third Baseman Barbeau walked
in the first inning and the next two
batters went out. Hennningway,
the crippled shortstop, slammed a
three-base wallop that scored the
runner, but he died on third when
Harry Williams skied to center
Though he had promised both
Jackson and Rourke that he would
stav with them until the fifteenth
Pat Mason, the Kansas City college
boy, packed his grip and took a train
for Spencer, Neb., jumping the club's
contract and leaving them in a crip
pled condition. To fill the positions
Rourke put Harry Williams, former
New York American league player,
who has also played with Lincoln
and Wichita in the Western loop,
on first base.
Another old big league star in the
line-up, was Otto Williams, who re
tired from the professional game to
allow him to spend more time at
home with his family, at second
base. Otto is now the manager of
the Armour semi-pro club. The two
Williams' played a good game,
though neither contributed any hits,
their fielding was perfect. Both
Harry and Otto hit the ball, but
some, opposing player happened to
be in the way each time.
Another Tulsa player pulled off
the second string catch. Burk
in center field grabbed one off his
shoe laces, on Fitcher Fuhr's liner
in the fifth inning. There was a
man on and it looked like a sure
hit, but Burk made a sprint and
stooped just in time to grab it.
The visitors made just twice as
many hits as the locals, getting
eight to the Omaha players' four.
Shortstop Hemmingway made an
error and Catcher Spellman made
a bad throw to first, making Wil
liams jump for it, but he couldn't
reach it and a runner advanced a
base on it. Score:

Omaha Player Quits
Tennis Tourney When
He Loses in Singles
Sioux City, Aug. 7. Both the
singles and doubles events in the
Interstate Tennis tourney have gone
into the semi-finals, with all the lo
cal stars out of the play in the
singles, while in the doubles only
Gilman and Carey remain as Sioux
City representatives. ,
Howard Penfold of Kansas City,
the 1918 champion, put out Clark
Stone of. Sioux Falls, in the singles
today in 'a hard three set match.
Today's results in the singles fol
low: Winterble beat Enright 6-2, 6-0.
Powell beat William Adams 6-2.
6-0. Gene Adams beat Mathewson
6-4, 6-4. Penfold beat Ston 3-6. 6-2.
Results in the doubles:
Gene Adams and Knight beat
Penfold and Gooch 6-4, 1-4. 1-6, 10-8.
Gilman and Carey beat Stone and
Enripht 6-2. 3-6, 6-4. Powell and

William Adami of Omaha was
scheduled to nlav with W. V. Kniirht
of Minneapolis in the doubles, but
after losing in the sineles he decided
to ko hoe immediately. This left
Knight without a partner, but the
tennis committee allowed him tn

The prince finished second in the contest, but copped the gravy when
his opponent was disqualified. The winner was the duke of Adenoids.
It looked like a ptomaine finish for the prince until the count of Dan
druffia noticed that the the duice had a sandy complexion, which acted as
a non-skin tread for the butteVed monocle. The duke was ruled off the
one-lunged eyeglass turf and the prince grabbed the biscuits. .However,
the duke was a good loser, as both contestants gargled tiffin together and
later in the evening the prince was piped turning over the pages of the
Police Gazette while the duke squinted at the pretty pictures.
The buttered monocle is an exhiliarating sport and exceeds the tea
sniffing tournaments which had the nobility by the ears during the 16th
century. Some of the Royal cavalry claim that spur jingling is a more
intricate pastime, but the buttered monocle set have things their own
way this season.
The prince's valet states that his highness has a new monocle made
of wired fire glass. The prince will wear this when occupying a front
seat at the Follies and Billy Watson's Beef Trust.
The monocle used at all royal contests is the regulation bevel edged
affair about the size of a dollar or a Ford wheel. Newport and Palm
Beach will both endeavor to furnish opposition to the prince when he
arrives. It is the custom that no one shall beat his highness in a mono
cle contest, all the entrants being instructed to stall just enough to let the
prince snitch first place.
