Washington, Sept. 28. The Unit
ed States treasury is expecting to
benefit at least $18,000 on the world
series base ball games. Each pur
chaser of a ticV.ct will have to pay
the customary admission tax of one
cent for each ten cents or fraction
thereof, which on the basis of last
years attendance will mean enough
money to pay the president for
nearly three months.
Brokers, it is believed will find
the business of "scalping" tickets
this year at exorbitant prices much
less profitable than in the past,
inasmuch as there is a tax of SO per

Trainer Thinks Joie
Ray's Days Are Ovef
New York, Sept. 28. In the opin
ion of one of America's foremost
trainers of athletes Joie Ray has run
his last great race. This prediction
was made at Franklin field, Phila
delphia, immediately after the little
Illinois A. C. champion had run his
third hard race in the national cham
Ray had previously won the one
mile championship in 4.14 2-S, slip
ping four seconds from the previous
championship record made by him
self at St. Louis in 1917, and the
half-mile championship in 1:56 sec
onds Either of these two perform
ances would have been considered
a good day's work by the ordinary
athlete, but not so with Joie. He
wanted to bring another champion
ship to his club, and when the clerk
of criurse called the teams out for
the four-mile relay. Ray answered
the call as one of the Illinois A. C.
quartet, and ran the last mile of the
race for his team.
Ray was compelled to run hard
in this race. The men who ran
agajnst him were fresh, while Ray
had already run two of the greatest
races of his career. He proved
equal to the task and led his rivals
across the finish line in 4:32.
In discussing Ray's great per
formances after the games with sev
eral prominent trainers and athletic
officials it was admitted that he is
the greatest middle distance runner
of all time, but one of the coaches
said he believed Ray made the mis
take of his life by running that last
mile as a mAnber of his club's four
mile relay team. He firmly believed
that the strain of those three great
races, within a space of three hours,
will prove a permanent injury to
Ray, and that the Illinois A. C. star
vill never run another record break
There is a limit to the punishment
that the human body can stand: and
l ,?Pinlon of th'S well known
coach, Ray overstepped the limit.

One Stroke No More Vital
Than Another, Says Ouimet
Expert Declares Recent Amateur Championship Up
' set All Notions of Golf Says Driving Just As
Vital in Winning Matches As Putting.
From Nebraska Field
By FRANCIS OUIMET.
The recent amateur golf cham
pionship somewhat upset all our old
notions of golf because it proved
beyond question that one stroke is
no more important than another and
that driving is as vital in winning
matches as putting. To be sure
Oakmont is unlike many other
championship courses in that liber
tics are not permitted from the tees
as on other links. But as golf is
demanding a better all-around game:
each year this is an indirect way of
Naturally one is most impressed
in a game like golf when he goes
down to defeat. In my own case
1 do not have to look for my down
fall. Time and again a pulled tee
shot put me in such trouble that un
less my ball was favored with-a good
lie a recovery was out of the ques
tion. When Woody Piatt put me
out on 38th hole this was just the
case. A badly pulled tee shot left
me in such a position that it was out
of the question to-reach the green
on my second. Piatt played fault
lessly" from the tee to the cup and
won a deserved victory.
Blames Poor Driving.
I know that the vital strokes in
my matches at Oakmont were' tee
shots. My opponents won many
holes because of my having trouble
of this nature. So that, arfter all,
poor driving is invariably the cause
of many defeats. Dave Herron won
because of hii superior putting, but
had he fallen down on his driving
it is extremely doubtful if his put
ting record would have been as
good. There is a mental hazard to
overcome in such a situation.
Tim; was once and not so many
years ago when a golfer could win
everything in sight if his putting
was up to the mark. Today, if he
does not drive well, he does not
have the opportunity to putt that he
otherwise would have. In other
words, on holes where good golfers
can each the green in two he who
takes three strokes to get there ar
rives too late to win.
Showed Masterful Putting.
Herron's victory while due to his
masterful putting, was made possi
ble because Dave had a game that
was well rounded in every- depart
ment. His powerful drives were
straight and as they were followed
up by deadly irons he. aiways had
the opportunity to putt. Now if
you cannot drive well it stands to
reason tnat even it you do get a
good second shot you will not be on
the green. Therefore your opportun
ity to putt comes one stroke too
late. AH of which proves that good
driving and fine iron shots are just
as important as sinking putts.
The vital stroke in Bobby Jones'
case in the finals was that topped
brassie shot on number 12. It was
vital because through no fault of his
own Jones lost a hole that he should
have won. And in losing it Jones
left himself an almost impossible
handicap to cut do.vn.
In my match with Evans the vital
stroke was Chick's approach to
the 36th hole. This was odd and
queer for in golf matches the turn
ing point, or psychological moment,
usually comes before the last hole.
But in this case the climax came at
the end when Evans over-approached
the cup on his third shot and left
himself too long a putt to hole.
Plenty of Proof,
-t; If this season in golf proved any
thing it proved the fallacy of the
theory that putting wins golf
matches. Do not be carried away
with the idea that if you can putt
well the rest is easy. While put
ting is mighty important and must
be mastered by anyone who wishes to
play good golf it is never more so
than driving or playing the irons.
There is proof in abundance to be
had in the records.
.Take my meeting with Evans at
Oakmont. Chick has been called a
poor putter. But the records show
that on the 36 holes we played he
took 64 putts to my 68. Now iW
putting is the vital part of the game
I would have lost. But putting is
not. It's the perfectly balanced
game the long, straight drive, the
clean snappy irons, the deadly
mashie and the even more deadly
putting that wins be the play medal
or match. Golf demands that to
day and will demand this perfectly
balanced game more and more as
th years roll by.

Thus Ernie Hubka, star Husker
tackle, explained himself as he
snowed up for practice permanently
Thursday eve. The coaches had
been burning the wires between here
and Johnson, Neb., for four days in
frantic effort to ascertain the truth
of a report that Hubka was going to
s.tay home this fall to assist his
father during the "huskin' season."
He's a real Cornhusker.
Capt. Paul Dobson, the stalwart
halfback on the state machine, is
lined up strong as a candidate for
the AH-American eleven this fall.
Provided the Huskers defeat Notre

Halligan has been out of school

Demnsev v, as a failure as an actor
Nor can thelpal and manager of the
world's heavyweight champion be
accused of not trying' ' to make
Dcmpsey appear as a headliner
across the footlights, that the the
atrical venture of Dempsey came to
an untimely end three weeks after
it started on a supposed 15 weeks'
tour was the fault only of the gul-
libles who this time refused to fall
for the display. Every one wanted
to get a glimpse of Dempsey, but
as to paying for the glimpse, that
was another thing.
Kearns' Impossible Dreams.
One of the primary aims of the
Army, Navy and Civilian Board of
Boxing Control is to force boxing
champions to put their titles at
stake at least ence every six months.
Dempsey holds the first belt issued
by that organization and should be
the leader in living up to the rules.
While no one begrudges Dempsey
all the easy money he can squeeze
nut nf thp hnnK it i rtifth tiinf that
boxing was helied a bit by Demp
sey. If he only would talk about
some sortof a scrap, it might sat
isfy, but instead he allows his man
ager to ramble about meeting three
men in the same ring or some other
dream as impossible. v
Meehan Might Repiat.
Right in this country there are
several heavyweights who might
make it interesting for Dempsey.
Willie Meehan of San Francisco
still thinks that he has the Indian
sign on the champion and is willing
to trv to Drove it. Bill Brennan
gave Dempsey the hardest battle
of his career, according to Dempsey.
Brennan nneht do the same thing
again if the two were to meet. At
any rate, Dempsey could get a fat
guarantee for a bout if lie were of
a mind to sign up. - ,
That there are great possibilities
for Dempsey or a promoter of a
heavyweight title bout in New Jer
sey was proved beyond cavil when
nearly 50,000 persons jammed into
the Jersey City base ball park to
watch Johnny Kilbane knock out
Frankie Burns. Prices were fixed
at $1 and $2 a head, and even at
that the receipts, were nearly $70,000.
Electric Score Board
Being Installed at
Ma'nieer Charley Franke is over
hauling and installing his monster
electric score board at the Omaha
Auditorium and will have it in work
ing order for the first game of the
world's series, Wednesday afternoon.
The board has not been used for
two years, since the telegraph com
pany was unable to furnish the de
scription of the game, play by play,
last year, due to war conditions.
This year the scores will be received
at the Auditorium and reproduced on
the huge board, just as they happen
on the field, within a few minutes
after each play takes place
This score board is so arranged
that every play is depicted almost as
soon as they happeti, by means of
tiny electric lights. The ball may
be seen, from the time it leaves the
pitcher's hand until it is fielded and
the play completed.
Base runners are shown on their
way around the bags, by means of
little white lights. The ball will be
shown as a red light. If caught, the
fielder catching it will be marked
with a reen light. An error is shown
by the red (ball) light traveling to
the fielder, showing a greon light for
an instant and then a red light again,
thus displaying the ball again, and
showing the error.
Omaha tans, -by watching the elec
tric score board, may see the world's
series witnout leaving the Gate City.
The-affair is an invention of the, pop
ular manager of the Auditorium and
is a wonderful scheme to show every
play just as they are made on the
field. The board will be in opera
tion for every game of the series..

drawing to a close, amateur foot
.ball will hold the center of the
s,tage, and it is expected that the
1919 season will be the greatest ever
witnessed in local circles of this sec
tion of the state.
One of the first elevens to be or
ganized for the 1919 season is the
crack Nonpariels, city and state
champions. The Nonpariels after an
absence of one year, due to the fact
that many of the star players were in
the service of Uncle Sam, will be
represented in the field this season
by one of the fastest elevens that
has yet played under that name.
Phil Lynch, one of the best known
managers in this part of the state,
and also a "player of great ability,
will have charge of the Nonpariels
again this season. Over 40 candi
dates have been trying out for a
berth with the Nonpariels, according
to Manager Lynch, and any foot ball
crack who wishes to try out is urged
to be at the Mason school grounds,
Twenty-fourth and Mason streets at
10 o'clock this morning.
Manager Lynch is arranging a
great schedule for the season, and
any team, in the city or out of town
wishing to meet the Nonpariels is
urged to get in touch with Lynch
at Red 8443 or address him at 2521
Hickory street. Manager Lynch
announced last night that the follow
ing men have already passed the test
and wifl be on the regular line-up:
Harry Williams, fullback; Hason
and Flanagan, halfbacks; Walter
Spellman, also well-known in local
amateur and professional base ball
circles, center; Raso and Casev.
guards; Pearson and Sandau, tackle;
foran and .bimoson. ends: Toe
Quinn, former star for the Carlisle
Indians, will also play with the Non
pariels. Practically all of the olav-
ers of the team were across the
"waves." Potts Sandau, former am
ateur base ball player who for the
past two years fought with Uncle
Sam's army, and who was shot in
the leg, has fully recovered and ex
pects to be one of the shining stars
of the eleven.

Omaha Bee will handle the amateur
foot ball news in a better and grand
er shape than ever before and any

bers, names of captains and man
