Omaha Uni Wins.
In the opening game the Omaha
University reserves, through the re
markable coaching of Coach Ernie
Adams, scored in the first few sec
onds, when Presley.' forward, shot
the goal from practically the center
of the floor. Presley and Beacons
were the point getters for Omaha
university, while Kline, forward for
the Commerce reserves shot both
of the goals. The first half ended
"with the score, 13 to 1, the final
score being 27 to 4.
Freiberg, forward, and Cooper
renter, were the stars for the Y. M.
H. A. and were responsible for the
28 to 7 victory achieved over the
Thorpian Athletic club," who took
the franchise 'of the Drake Realty
Construction company. Despite the
fact that the Thorpian quintet lost
by the big score, they put up a game
fight, as this was their first time to
gether this season. The Drake team

Coach 'White's Council Bluffs
City Man Gained Fif
teen Pounds and Is On the
Job Every Day Now.
' "Three years ago I had to give
up my position, as my health was
i .so bad. and I haven't been able to
do a lick of work since until just
f a few weeks ago," said George W.
MeCraw, 1209 Grandam, Kansas
City, Mo., while telling of the re
i markable benefits he had derived
from the use of Tanlac, recently.
- "For eight years I have been in a
, bad fix troubled with indigestion,
rheumatism, nervousness, sleep
lessness and a general run-down
"j condition,", continued Mr.'McCraw.
' "I had practically lost my appetite
and when fr'did eat a little some
, thing it nearly always , disagreed
with me and caused an awful
amount of gas to form. Rheuma-
, tism bothered me so bad I could
hardly get about and my nerves
were in a wretched condition. Bead
le aches would come on me nearly
every day and I would get so dizzy
that I would fall over if I didn't
. ; catch hold of something to support
me. I was so restless and miser
! able at night that many a time it
; was two o'clock in the morning be-
fore I got to sleep. M went down
: - to one hundred fifteen pounds -in
, ! weight and I was so weak I knew
i I could not hold out much longer. -i
"When I began taking Tanlac I
- j had tried so many other medicines
; and got no relief that I had little
,; faith in it, but I want to tell you
' I .changed my mind right away, for
r'l was feeling better before I fin-
, ished my first bottle. And now it
, i has completely restored me to health
aad I have gained fifteen pounds
J in weight. I can eat anything I
s please without ever having a touch
- of indigestion and I am enjoying
Nmy meals. The rheumatism and
i nervousness have entirely disap-
peared and I am never bothered
f- with headaches and dizzy spells any
' more. ' I go to sleep by the time
I hit the beTand I sleep like a log
' all night long. I feel better and
stronger than I have in eight years
: and I have gone back to my work
and never miss a day. I give all 1
the credit for my fine health to

; sible for me to recommend it too
highly." ,

The Council Bluffs five looked bet

Thev cqa talk all thev want about
pitching feats, but any time a twirler
conies through witn something out
of the ordinary it is usually possible
to revert to. the records of Walter
Johnson and find some performance
that will compare favorably with the

When Hod Eller struck out six of
the Chicago players in a row he per
formed a remarkable feat. The fact
that the work was done, in a world's
series game makes the performance
stand out even. bit more than in a
regular contest. Incidentally, it was
made against the strong part of the
Chicago batting order. Naturally,
such a whirring stunt got all kinds
of publicity. Nothing like it has
ever been pulled, in a world series,
but I was fortunate enough to um
pire a gam': at Washington six or
seven years ago, m which Walter
Johnson showed one of the most e
markable bits of pitching I have ever
seen. Ths Detroit club was a hard
hitting aggregation, having in its
lineup four or five players-noted for

To Be Held in Cleveland
New York, Jan. 6.-t-The Granl
American Handicap trap shooting
tournament for 1920 was awarded to
Cleveland, O., by' the American Trap
Shooting: association. The tourna
ment wilT be held in August at the
Municipal park at Edgcwatcr.
The date of the tournament will
not be selected until after the an
nouncement of the dates for the
grand circuit races at Cleveland, to
avoid a conflict. '
Two rules which were adopted
defined an amateur as "any shooter
jiot dependent upon his skill as a
trap shot, as a means of a living,
either directly or indirectly," and a
professional as "any shooter who
received his salary or any portion
of his salary or any expenses of,
any kind for use in trapshooting."
To stimulate greater efficiency,
the association adopted a "long run"
plan by which shooters will receive
gold, silver and bronze medals for
points received in making consecu
tive kills. ,

New York, Jan. 6. The most
popular indoor sport in f ew York
today was guessing how much the
New York Americans paid for
Ceorge II. (Babe) RutlT, the home
run monarch. The nearest approach
to anything of an official nature was
the smiling admission of -Colonel
Jacob Ruppert, the Yankees' pres'i
dent, that he understood an offer ol
$100,000 for Ruth was refused last
summer by Harry Frazee of 4he
Boston club. Sporting writers esti
mate the price paid from $125,000 to
$150,000. '
Followers (5f the national pastinie
recalled -that it was not so many
years ago' the base ball world was
staggered at the news that the New
York Giants had purchased Rube
Marquard for $11,000. Since then
the sale of d;amond stars has mount
ed even faster than the high cost ai
living. Until the sale of Ruth yes
terday, the record price was $50,000
and-two plnyers paid by Cleveland
lor Tris Speaker and $50,000 by thj
Chicago Americans for Eddie Col
lins. In commenting on the purchase of
Ruth, Colonel Ruppert said:
