The Pearl Memorials, by easily
winning from the Hanscom Parks
Methodists last'night, by the score
of 19 to 4. are leading the Church
basket ball league" with a clean
sweep of .victories.
At no time of the game were the
Pearls in danger, as they took the
lead shortly after the contest started
and played the Parks off their feet.
The Parks were unable to locate the
baskets, while the Pearls' shooters
were in perfect form.
The biggest surprise of the eve
ning happened in the Council Bbuffs
Christiait-Calvary Baptist contest, in
which the Counccil Bluffs Quintet,
present title holders of the Church
league, were victorious by the score
of 18 to 16. The Calvary Baotist
were tied for first honors with the
Pearls, while the Christians were in
seventh place. ( '
The Benson M. E. won their first
game of the season by beating the
M. E. Wops by the score of 11 to 7.
During the first half of the fray the
Wops were in the lead. In the sec
ond half, Calvert, right forward
who succeeded Lindberg, won the
game for the Bensonites by his ac
curate shooting and fast playing. He
made all nine of the ponts for the
Benson five in. tin's half.
James Joss made a remarkable
shot in the last 'few minutes of play
in the First M. E. Baracas-Trinitv i
Baptist fray. . Jos, left forward of
tne baptist live, won the contest for
his team by the shot. While lying
on his back on the floor Joss threw
the ball over his head backwards
from, the center of the floor for a
field goal.
Up to this stage of the game the
score stood 15 to 14 in favor of the
First M. E. squad. ,

I "Tanlac is the only medicine I
have ever taken with entire satis-
-faction," was the statement made
a few days ago by A. Ohleson of
''41(TSouth Colorado avenue, Kansas
City, Mo., in telling of his wonder
ful recovery by the use of this
medicine.- Mr. Ohleson was for
four years city building inspector
for Kansas City a,nd now is a gen-
' eral contractor.

about a year troubled with indiges-
Jtion, disordered kidneys, neuralgia,
nervousness, headaches and a run
down condition," he continued. "I
i had a poor appetite and what I did
tat caused so much gas to form
that toy heart would palpitate some
thing awful. I was bothered a
freat deal with my kidneys and I
had a severe pain across the small
oLmy back. Neuralgia troubled me
constantly and terrible headaches
often came on me. I was so nervous
and miserable at night that I could
jet only three or four hours of
restless, broken sleep. I was in an
awful run-down condition and felt
weak and worn out all day long.

in the papers and when I saw Cap

then that there was something to
it and I got a bottle at once. I
eertainly was not disappointed, for
after the very first few doses I
started to feel better and now that
I have taken three bottles all my
troubles have left me entirely. My

no difference what I eat I digest
it without the least trouble. The

Martin's Manager Says A. E.
F. Champ Is Backed by
American Legion.
Cleveland, t)., Jan. IS. jimmy
Bronson, manager of Bob Martin,
A. E. F. and inter-allied heavyweight
boxing champion, claims that Fred
A. Dixon and Morris A. Penter of
Pueblo, Colo., have offered a purse
of $75,000 for a match between Mar
tin and Georges Carpentidr, cham
pion of Europe.
"The American Legion proposes
to offer a championship belt to the
winner," said Bronson. "Posts of
the American Legion in Pueblo and
Denver have started a movement
condemning the proposed match be
tween Jack Dempsey and Caroentier
and are throwing their suuport to
ward a match between Martin and
the Frenchman.
"Retolutions adopted by the Colo
rado posts are now before every
Legion post in, America. Many of
the posts have already proclaimed
Dempsey a slacker and unworthy of
the support of the A, E. F.
These are the Colorado resolu
tions: v
Be It Resolved, Tht we condemn the
holding of the proposed Dempsey-Carpen-tler
match In any city In Colorado. Be
It further
Resolved, We condemn Jack Dempsey's
participation in any match In America',
the man's war record proving him a
elacker. Be It further .
Reselved. We recommenduhe meeting cf
Bob Martin, A. E. F. champion, a man
who has won for himself the respect of
all Americans, and Georges Carpentier,
who's service record is a brilliant page
In the history of the world war. Be it
Resolved, That we do all In our power
to secure the support of every post in
Colorado and throughout the nation to
take similar action."
."Martin is ready to meet Carpen
tier. We will accept the offer of the
Colorado promoters if the American
Legion favors that plan. However,
the Legion is anxious to raise a
purse for the contest itself by as
sessing each member a dollar. What
they see fit to do we will abide by."

the majors and minor leagues. v
After re-electing Thomas J.
Hickey president for a three-year
term at an increased salary of $7,200
a year and adopting an 18-player

owners would adopt a schedule of
1S4 games, starting the season on
April 14, the date of the major

the practice of raising a players'
fund next season by setting aside a

Bill took his shaving mug and toothbrush right out of the democratic
party, bawled Woody pink, split the party harmony like a cracked lip and
wound up the works by demanding, a recount on the knives and spoons.
The Jackson day dinner is named in honor of Andrew Jackson, the
seventh president of these glorious Divided States and the land of the
brave and the home of the freak. Andy was known as "Old Hickory."
Bill acted and spoke as if he thought that Andy's title was "Old Hick
ory Nut."
Jackson was elected president because he stymied the English at New
Orleans. . He licked the enemy after the treaty of peace was signed. In
order to take no change on Pershing doing this, congress isn't going to
sign this treaty until 1987. They want to make sure that the war ie over
before attaching ariy headlong signatures to any precipitate document.
Think twice before signing, is a good motto. This will take some time, as
there is no indication that congress has thought once.
All the democratic presidential possibilities were there, heavily out
numbered by the democratic presidential impossibilities. Sec. Daniels
made a speech in a low voice, taking no chance on being overheard by
Admiral Sims. The Sec. looked much refreshed after his arduous labor
of distributing swanboat citations and drydock medals to the navy.
Referendum was the topic of the evening. It looks as if referendum
is getting referendumber and dumber. Woody wasn't present. After
looking over the guest list, he decided that he could hive more fun staying
home and being sick. - x
As a representative of the soda population, Bryan touched lightly on
the grape juice debauches now prevalent in suburban sewing circles. At
the conclusion there wasn't a dry eye or a wet throat in the works. Toasts
were drunk to the democratic party in Potomac river water. Right now it
looks as if the next toasts will be drawn from the Salt river.
All the guests were democrats. Owing to the effect of prohibition on
the restaurant business, the dinner committee were forced to draw on
the republican party for their waiters.

The democratic convention will be held in California, where the cus

picked this location after dye deliberation, realizing that they will go West
anyway after the votes are counted on tlw first Tuesday aftep the first
Monday in November. . '
Bran is decidedly agin Woody for our next president. He cites
George Washington who refused a third term. Woody might eet mean
and cite GeorgeWashington who refused a third nomination
This might mean something and it might' not mean anything to Bill.
But, anyway, he is getting ready to grab that fourth nomination in order
to complete the set.
