Marine Marksman Sets
New Mark for Speed
and Consecutive Hits
Caldwell, N. J., Aug. 12. A rec
ord of 45 consecutive "bull's-eyes"
at 600 yards, without telescopic
sights, was made here today by
Corp. Clarence P. Kennedy of the
marine corps rifle range detach
ment, Quantico, Va., in .the mem
bers' match of the National Rifle
association. Although a . perfect
score consisted of only 10 "bull's
eyes", Kennedy continued shooting
until he made a "four" on the 46th
shot. He averaged three shots a
minute, a speed record for the
match. ' " ,
Continued bad shooting weather
and a rain squall which blew up dur
ing the second 'relay, caused 200
contestants to drop out. Ten of
the 400 remaining entrants made
perfect scores, and nearly all con-,
tinued shooting in the hope of pass
ing the high mark made by Ken
nedy. But the nearest approach
was 21 consecutives. scored by J.
W. Hession of the New York Ath

The squad in which Troeh shot

That also was a new world's record

N the new parable of feeding the multitude with fWe fishes, the quintet
of fishes are whales. L'ncle Sam is going to flatter the high expense
of living, which is a bigger job than ironing a giraffe's full dress collar.
Uncle Sam's method of slapping the profiteers is to toss army chow at
the public in habit-forming quantities.
The prohiboozinists solved the large cost of food and drink by
eliminating the booze from the tournament. We're glad that there aren't
any proohifoodinists. Living is costly, but folks like to go on living just
for the fun of complaining about it.
Ten years ago you could grab a meal check for two smackers that
was good for 20 meals. The check was good evetn if the meals weren't.
Ten megs a nosebag. Now, if a guy lamped a hneal check he would but
ter it and eat it. All the saloons had free'lunch counters where you could
grab all you could eat and some things you couldn't. That 'was before
they turned the lumber yards into breakfast food factories.
A hokey who went shopping along the stage entrances to the Fifth
avenue mansions could pick up some swell garbage. Boats used to
sail up New York harbor with their decks stacked with food. All that
is out. The profiteers have stacked the deck.
Where are the fat birds who used to play food golf every meal? The
old game of food golf consisted of eating nine holes along your belt.
When you had let out nine new links in the waist harness the game was
over. Since the food profiteeers busted into the works, those same fat
cuckoos can use a napkin ring for a belt. Where is the old-fashioned sapp
who used to perch two feet away from the table and then eat himself right
up to the old table? If he started two feet away these rays, he would be
a yard away when he quit.
What's become of the old-time leaf tables with the extra extensions
that mother kept under the kitchen sink? When dinner time came
around, the old man used to dive under the sink, where he felt right at
home, and grab two extra leaves. They don't need extension tables for
the food you get now. There ain't any chow. Only use for the dinner
table at dinner is for the old man to park his brogans on.
The army chow may solve the food problem,
birds who have had enough of it.
but we know of 4,000,000
The first bunch
about 400 carloads.
of military biscuits is on the fire now. There are
carloads baked beans,
carloads army beans,
carloads navy beans,
carloads lima beans,
carloads string beans,
carloads canned beans,
carloads dried beans,
carloads wax beans,
carloads Mex hopping
carloads Boston beans,
carloads bean bag beans,
carloads beanless beans.
You can pipe that there is a great variety in the army menu, the
variety consisting mostly in the number of carloads.
When we all get to scoffing the regular olive drab army cookies, table
etiquet will change like the map of Europe. When the bugle shirps
"Come and get it" the Riverside Drive bugs will tumble out of the inlaid
marble barracks and pile into the Circassian walnut mess halls.
When the army starts dishing out the food to citizens, the folks want
to remember that your mess gear must be spotless at all inspections.
Prune seeds must be thrown into the third barrel from the left. The tin
dish must shine until you can see your face in it, although after a bird
lias been scoffing army chow for a few monts he hasn't any desire to see
his face in an army dish. Something is sure to crack under the strain, and
it won't be the dish.
Slumgullion is also a good chow. Slumgullion is the same as hash,
except for the extra two-and-a-half syllables. Hash would be a much
shorter and convenienKname for it, but nothing is popular in the army
that cuts down the paper work.
On holidays the government will dish out rice pudding, which is the
Sunday name for slumgullion. Under government food rules all cities
over 50,000 in population will probably be allowed extra rations of army
pastry, which is rubber hot water bags coated with chocolate.

Yearly Event Since 1900,
Tirst Won by Heikes at
New York; Entries In

Chicago, 111.. Aug. 12. The
Grand American Trapshooting
Tournament, which is being held at

OMAHA- ST. PAUL
BASE BALL DAY IS
SET FOR SEPT. 1 4
Championship Series in Three
Closes of Amateur Ball
, Teams to Start in
Omaha and St. Paul day will be
celebrated in amateur base ball cir
cle Sunday afternoon, September
14, when championship games will
be staged in both cities between the
winners of class A, B and C for
supremacy honors. N
According to information received
from St. Paul this morning by Sec
retary J. J. Isaacson of the Municipal
Amateur Base Ball association, two
of St. Paul aggregations, champions
of the St. Paul Amateur Base Ball
association will play here, and Oma
ha will send their class B city
champs to the northern city.
According to the ruling made by
the Western Amateur Base Ball as
sociation, of which Omaha and St.
Paul are members, the class A
teams, such as the Murphy-Did-lts,
Holmes White Sox and Nebraska
Power company, will be classed as
class A. A., and the class B winners,
such as the Riggs, Western Lnion
and winners of the City and Church
league, are classed as class A, while
the class C champions, are known as
Murphys Loom Up.
The winners of the Greater Oma
ha league, Omaha's crack class A
circuit, which no doubt will be the
Murphy-Did-lts, will meet the class
A. A. champs, in the first game of
the inter-city series to determine the
'world's western amateur champion
ship of the Western asociation. This
game will be played here, as will the
game between Omaha's class C win
ners and St. Paul's class B champs.
The game between the class C and
St. Paul's class B will not be for a
championship title, but just to give
the northern lads an opportunity to
visit Omaha. It has been the cus
tom of both St. Paul and Omaha
associations to give their pennant
winning teams in each class a trip
at the end of the season, and since
Omaha for the past several years'
have sent their teams to St. Paul, it
was decided to give the nothern lads
a chance to play here.
The contest between Omaha's
class B winners and St. Paul's class
A champions will be played at St.
Paul and will be for a champion
Where the games will be played is
still an uncertainty, but it is likely
that they will be held at Luxus park,
as this is the only enclosed amateur
park in the city.
Location Still Uncertain.
Many of the directors are in fa
vor of staging these games at either
Fontenelle park or Thirty-second
and Dewey avenue, with the former
park in perference, as it is pointed
out that one' of the biggest crowds
that has ever attended an amateur
or professional game in this part of
the country will be in attendance.
However, it is not certain whether
the city commissioners will grant
the Municipal association this favor,
since it is planned, if the games are
staged on the Muny parks, to charge

forest, 60 miles across the moun

their efforts on the Camp Mildred

There are 11 uncontrolled fires

Joseph player of ability; Jolly, Jack
Peacock, Russel Purinton, J. A.
Bradley, T. G. Hagcy, A. Benson,. -G.
C. Halsey, William Funk, Ed Ma

of the above are from' the municipal
