Middlewest Tournament Notes
. This season's entry will possibly
not include the fast Sioux Falls
team, which has always participated
in former meets. The bowlers up
there have been without alleys, not
because of lack of interest in' the
game, but because of the alleyman's
inability to renew his lease. There
is so much enthusiasm up there
that the pin artists may enter the
tournament even-without their us
ual early season practice.
All late entrants asking for that
old favorite date, the last Saturday
and Sunday, will be out of luck.
Already these dates are filled and
have been for some time. There
are still several Friday and Satur
day dates, or Sunday and Monday
The Omaha alleys will be entirely
refinished just prior to the open
ing of the tournament. Conditions
for a tournament of this kind must
be as close to perfection as possible.
The six teams entered from St.
Louis last week were the Wooster
Lamberts, Sweeney's Specials, Swee
ney's Tigers, Missouri Pacific No. 1,
Missouri Pacific No. 2, and the H.
C. Hennes, the latter team entered
by the association's president, who
resides there; All will roll on the
opening, Saturday and Sunday. The
annual meeting 01 tne association
will be held on the opening Sunday

rrs anoearine on the schedule that

' OLDEST "OLD" GRAD BOBS UP AT DARTMOUTH.
, , ' 'jl '. i Hanover, N. H., Oct 31.
f ' t ANOVER Is one of those demitasse-sized burgs controlled by the
IT. Chicago mail order houses. If it weren t for the catalogue guys
here wouldn't be much mail aimed this way.
Dartmouth Is located at Hanover and any father who sends his boy
to Dartmouth can be satisfied that sonny am t doing anything but study
ing, unless he's tossing little Josephs, playing red dog, stud poker, drink
ing apple jack or selling his text books to grab off the fare to Boston.
Good aroods come in small packages and Hanover is riot the excep
tion that proves the rule. College spirit runs higher than the spots on
the sun, which, are plenty high. When' Yale sent out that lour-aiarm
squawk for old grads to boost the team, the old-timers swamped New
Haven. That's the college spirit. It makes an old grad always willing
to go back and annoy 'em some more.
There hasn't been any moan for old grads at Dartmouth, as it isn't
a moaning college. But the old-timers always blow in to hinder and
help the coaches in the order named. Trying to oil the machinery .with
a monkey wrench is an old grad's prerogative;
Well, the oldest grad of the works blew Into Hanover yesterday in
order to help primp the team for the game. Alongside of this Gee
hokus, Methuzelah would have been charged with juvenile delinquency.
He had a red lamp' hung in his whiskers so that no near-sighted hick
would harvest 'em like a crop.
i ' This old-timer had played at Dartmouth in the days when foot ball
was still a crime. He was a tackle on the 1842 eleven that held Yale to
four dozen touchdowns. This was the game in which so many high hats
were busted in the scrimmages. Foot ball was formal in those days and
no guy could get murdered without being introduced and recommended.
Getting bumped off is much easier these long days Of shortages. Showing
that civilization is advancing at a rapid limp.
. Even if you gave him a quick, Philadelphia election count, this old
grad was at least 107 years old. He was wrinkled like a wall paper in a
country hotel. He was just getting his third edition of teeth. He was so
near-sighted and deaf that he buzzed away two hours to the tackling
dummy without even getting hep that he wasn't getting more than two
answers to every seven questions.
i The old boy could play foot ball, too, except he couldn't figure why
all the modern players have their hair trimmed closer than the meat on
an English mutton .chop. In his day they grew their hair long to make
, tackling easier.
After a tackier got his fish hooks on the runner he was harder to
dislodge than a cootie. The old grad also remembered the longest goal
ver kicked. It was knocked off by Sam McCall, ex-governor of Massa
chusetts. This was in 1872, and Dartmouth needed one goal to win. Sam
kicked the ball 80 yards, and it would have gone farther if there hadn't
been two Princeton guys riding on it (Sam got excited when he started
to kick field goals, and if anybody got m the road he was knocked for a
goal, too. Ex-Congressman Sam Powers was another good kicker and
Could drop a piano over the goal posts from the 60-yard line. Melvin
Adams, who runs the narrow gauge railroad, was a good player in 1874,
except he had a habit of running the wrong way. That's how he got the
idea for his narrow gauge railroad.
""ieh Jf sn'J Prove anything except that an old grad is a big
kelp to the foot ball eleven if anecdotes and a good memory will win
pany and St. Joseph Buggy com
pany. Eight alleys will be used this year
to accommodate the big entry. The
alleys will be paired off, 2 and 3, 4
and 5, 6 and 7, 8 and 9. This is the
first tournament ever held by the
association where the layout didn't,
have one or more pairs of split al
leys. That means "that every pair
of alleys a team or individual rolls
on will not be split with a post or
a return chute between them. Grand
stands will be constructed over al
leys 1 to 10.
Bill Learn has secured the check
room again, with the old "50-50"
cry. He handled it very efficiently
during the last tournament held
flere, so we can expect the same
satisfaction this time. A good
checking system makes a hit with
visiting bowlers and contributes in
no small degree to .the successful
handling of the event.
Local Bowling Notes.
Mose Yousem is back in the game
with the same old pep and enthu
siasm. Not quite as strong a roller
as he was back in 1912-13 when he
was able to take 'em all on.
Gus Toman will roll with the
Stock Yards National Banks in the
Magic City league. The bankers
are in last place, but with the addi
tion of this fast pingetter, they
snouia start up the ladder.
The Steyer Candy Co. team has
been strengthened by . the addition
of Jimmy Coleman to their lineup.
Atkinson, the Orchard and Wil-
helm star, was high roller for the
special prize on the Farnam allevs
last month. With his score of 269
he is handed a fine Stetson hat by
me vvasnington bhirt Co. This
prize is given every; month to the
bowler rolling high individual game
on tne farnam alleys.
George Lowe, ex-secretary of the
association, has 'sent in two more
entries from Kansas Citv. One will
be labeled Lowe and Campbell; the
otner nas not disclosed its identity.

University of Omaha

Saturday at Lincoln
Changes in the line up of the Uni
versity of Omaha foot ball team
have raised the hopes of the stu
dent body for a successful season,
following the victory over Palmer
University of Mississippi last Sat

strengthened the team. All three
men are former army stars.
The Omaha team will meet Cot
ner university at Lincoln next Sat

a strong contingent of roters.

This game is to be called at 2

Brown of the Kirkwoods had the
honor of making 14 points out of the
24 scored by his team against the
Bemis Parks' two. The Kirkwoods
outclassed their opponents in every 1
department of the game, and had
them shut out with but a few min
utes to go when Lundgren, center,
shot a goal on a dead run.
The Idlewild's victory over the
Fontenelles goes mainly to Billy
Usher, for it was in this game that
he broke the individual record for
scores when he shot 10 field goals
and one foul goal, for 21 points. Had
Usher not been playing, the result
probably would have been reversed,
a Livinson, also forward, was the
only other man for the Idlewilds to
score, shooting two goals for four
points. The Idlewilds won by a 25

the stellar game for the Fontenelles.
The Norwoods scored another vic

was attended by a large crowd, com
