McGraw Thinks His
Team Has "Excellent
Chance to Win Flag"
New York. April 11. John G.
McGraw has built a Giant machine
that will go cavorting into the long
battle ready and capable of fighting
at every stage of the game.
"I have a team that I think has
an excellent chance of winning the
pennant," said McGraw, "but if it
fails to win out in this race, which
I think will be the hottest ever re
corded in- the National league, it
will nevertheless win the hearts of
the fins.
"My team, I am mighty proud to
say,' is the kind that the teams will
fall in' love with and when the fans
fallin love with a team they arc
ready ,to cheer in defeat as well as in
"I think Frank Frisch is the best
player that has come to the major
leagues in many years. He should
not only be a great star, but an
idol. I am not afraid to hazard the
prediction that he will be as great
an idol as Babe Ruth.
"George Kilty is another who will
give the fans joy. His wonderful
arm, his long reaTh, his persistent
trying, will surely make a hit.
".The rest of the team is pretty
well known.
"It is the action, the clean cut
work of the team upon which I
count in predicting the Giants of
1920 will earn such great popularity,
Action, and lots of it, is what the
fans want, .and just that is what
this team will give them.
Omaha Middleweight to
Meet Indian Pug Monday
Johnny Sudenberg and George' Lamson Headliners
On Attractive Card at Fort Omaha Spellman
and Garrison to Settle Old Dispute In
Preliminary. -
Johnny Sudenberg, clever, hard
hitting Omaha middleweight, and
George Lamson, the Walthill Indian
heavyweight, are headliners.on a big
boxing program scheduled for Fort
Omaha Monday night under the
auspices of the fort athletic com
The main event promises to bt
one of the most interesting fistic
battles fought here in years.
Sudenberg is a hard hitter and can
take a world of punishment. He is
clever on his feet and knows how
to use his head. Lamson is more
or less an "unknown" in and near
Omaha; The Indian won pugilistic
laurels while a member of the A. E.
F. in France and on returning to
his home on the Walthill reserva
tion he took up fighting for a profes
sion. ,
His Indian-friends and neighbors
claim he is the world's greatest and
will back him with every cent they
own. Johnny Lee, .Omaha heavy
weight, who took tlie count in two
round at the hands of Lamson, and
Joe Stangle, another Omaha fighter,
who went the same route in two
minutes when he met Lamson, will
testify that Lamson's friends and
neighbors know what they arc talk
ing about.
Denny Ryan, who is promoting
the affair for Fort Omaha authori
ties, has carded four fast preliminaries.

rison fought at Fort Omaha several
months ago. Spellman was given a
decision. The Battler objected and
so did some of the fans who saw the
bout. Spellman is anxious to clear
his claim and Garrison anxious to
even up matters. Both fighters have
been matched for a six-round pre
liminary. Young Blum of Fort Omaha and
Tommy Vaughn of South Omaha,
two clever youngsters, are scheduled
for six rounds. Harry Reed and K.
O. Anderson are carded for six
rounds, and Soldier Hanley and Carl
Emmett for a bout of the same
length. .
Fort Omaha authorities have se
lected three -judges for the bouts.

coach1; Dick Kitchen, Omaha fight
fan and proprietor, and Carl Marfisi,
local promoter.

Central High Track Team
Is Growing Every Day
Coach Harold R. Mulligan has
discovered some new finds in his
Central High track squad, but is
keeping everything under cover.
The squad is growing each day.
Coach Mulligan probably will take
his men to Creighton field the lat
ter part of this week for workout.
Howard Turner, who won the
high jump last year, has promised to
break the record this year. Floyd
Green is to run the sprints.
The base ball squad is getting
ready for its first game with South
High on April 27. Coach Fred Hill
is putting his men through some
stiff practice, and is out for cham
pionship honors.

Letters from Rourke and Manager
Jack Lelivelt indicate that the ex
ecutives of Omaha's Western
league representatives are highly
satisfied with the preliminary ap
pearances of their hired hands.
Pa writes outbursts of enthusis
asm about Lelivelt and Lelivelt is
beating the tom-toms for his ath
letes. . .
Lelivelt is particularly wild over
Palmero, the Cuban twirler. Pal
mero, Jack avers, will be the curv
ing sensation of the loop. In addi
tion the Cuban is noted as a slugger
and can play in the outfield and first
base. Palmero is expected to earn
his salary several times over.
And despite the fact that Palmero
hails from parts where that which is
there is not here, he is reported to
be in good condition and ready to
play regularly, it ring Bodie or
Kay Caldwell lived in Havana they
would be ready to play about the
time the season ends, but the Rourke
Hurler is said to be modest in his ap
petite for forbidden refreshments
and therefore leaves his winter home
with only mild reluctance.
With Oscar Fuhr in harness, the
southpaw department of the Jiurling
corps is sound as a nut. Oscar re
ported late, but he had been practic
ing knocking apples off the fence
in his back yard in Tulsa and there
fore is not much behind his team
mates in preparation. Oscar's fast
ball is working better than ever
this year, 'tis said, and those high
shoots of his are expected to mow
down the Western league slugging
crews as in the days before the war.
Charlie Kopp is exhibiting cymp
toms of his old 'form, which pres
ages no great good for ambitious
batsmen. Schaltzman also is going
good. Schaltzman came to the
Rourkes from the army last year
and couldn't get into condition be
fore the season ended. But he's O.
K. now, Lelivelt reports, and has
the stuff to earn a position among
the first string pitchers.
But it is his catching corps that
tickles Lelivelt. He has Cy Lingle
and George Hale and Charlie
Brcwn. Omaha fans know what
Lingle and Hale can do. They're
about as good at backstopping as
will be found in Class A circles
anywncre. JLingie is touted as a
major league nrospect.
Pa and Lelivelt are still angling
for a right-handed pitcher. If they
land the man they want they believe
they will be fixed for pitchers for
the season. But even If they don't
get him they'll be better fixed than
any other Western league club, they

That's why Spur Cigarettes have won.
There are plenty of Cigarettes of merit, some
claiming one pleasing feature, some another.
But there was room at the top for a still
better cigarette one that had all the goodness
of the others and then some!
Spur Cigarettes were made with that
object in view to fill that place at the top.
The choicest American and Imported
tobaccos were blended by a new method that
brings out to the full that good old tobacco
taste that smokers are always seeking.
Satiny, imported paper was used. It is
crimped, not pasted, to make an easier-drawing,
slower-burning cigarette.
Then these super-cigarettes were put into
a smart "brown-and-silver" package, three
fold, to keep them fresh and rich in that good
old tobacco taste.
Lastly, Spurs were priced at twenty for
20c the lowest possible price for a cigarette of
highest possible quality.
Smokers tried Spurs. Their verdict, every
where, has been: "A high-bred cigarette!"
