. Lighting Futures Burgesi-Gran-den
"That the Tulsa team as leader of the Western league is deserving
of its rank because of its sheer high class is shown by the way the
major league clubs have sought the talent Spencer Abbott has assembled
to make the 1920 race." The article quoted above from the Sporting
News of August 19, adds that Marty McManus has been sold to the
Browns for $5,000, that Shortstop Tierney has been sold to the Pitts
burgh Pirates, that Outfielder Tommy Connolly has been sold to the
Yankees and that Pitcher Joe Morris has been sold to the White Sox,
all four deals bringing the Tulsa club "better than $20,000."
We might add just as a postscript that Pa Rourke sold a pitcher
the other day, Oscar Fuhr, td the Chicago Cubs. It was the first sale
Pa made this season. Fuhr, Omaha fans will agree, although a likely
prospect for major league ball, was not the best purchase on the Omaha
club. We might also add that Rourke has had several offers for Pal
mero and Lee. And we might still further add that Pa Rourke was
paid 55,000 cash for Oscar Fuhr and is to be given two players as an
additional part of the purchase price. And if the two players are not
satisfactory to Rourke they are to be returned to the Cubs for $1,000
each. Fuhr cost the cubs $7,000, at the least possible figure. Now
with several bids standing open for Palmero and Lee and prospects like
Gislason, Haney, Lingle And Kopp still playing ball for the Omaha club,
Rourke may have major league material worth "better than $20,000,"
too, and Rourke may deserve to lead the league.
By the way if the White Sox

he dies from overwork. Here's Morris' record since the White Sox
bought him: Morris relieved Richmond in the first game and pitched
the whole second game of a double-header August 9. Tulsa didn't play
August 10, so Morris didn't have anything to do. On August 11, how
ever, he was pressed into service in the ninth inning to relieve Querry
and on August 13 he was knocked out of the box, the lowly Miners
sconnsr three in the first and two in rhn i,nnj r j.i:
He took the mound again August 16, after another two-day rest and
was knocked out again. Richmond and Hier worked August 17 and
there was no game August 18, so Morris had another long rest.

No Official Decision Given,
But Louisville Heavy
weight Outclasses lowan
By J. A. SHAN AH AN.
Andy Schmader of Louisville,
Neb., clearly outclassed Ralph Al
exander of Waterloo, la., Wednes
day night in an eight-round no
decision bout, in Louisville. Both
men are heavyweights.
The bout was held in the rain. All
preliminaries but one were called
off. And in that one Frank Schma
der, younger brother of the heavy
weight, knocked Frank Blatser of
Plattsmouth down nine times in the
first round before Referee Jack
Fitzgerald stopped the fight.
Four hundred persons, among
them several women, took seats in
the open air arena at 7 o'clock, the
appointed time for the opening of
the program. It was raining. It
had been raining since 4:30. From
7 o'clock until 8:15 the 400 sat wait
ing in the downpour until the gate
receipts were divided to the satis
faction of the two principals.
The canvas floor of the ring was
soaked with water by the time the
two heavyweights had taken their
In the first round Alexander
caught a wicked left on the jaw and
went down for the count of eight.
The lowan found it much more dif
ficult holding his footing on the slip
pery cancas than did his opponent.
Alexander took another count of
eight in the third when Schmader
cut the Iowan's eye with a hard left.
In the fourth Alexander started to
bleed freely from the nose.
Half of every round was devoted
The only preliminary, a "grudge
fight" between the younger Schmad
er and Blatser, was postpined until
after the main event. Both boys
were ready to climb into the ring
when the principals in the main
event climbed out.
Blatser weighed 149. according to
Announcer Kid Graves, and
Schmader 164. Both boys rushed
from their corners to the center of
the ring and sparred for a few sec
onds. Schmader landed the first
blow, and that first one sent Blatser
down hard and fast. Blatser pulled
himself together again, only to be
floored by the second punch. When
he got up Schmader repeated his
part of the performance. And so it
continued. After the ninth knock
down Referee Jack Fitzgerald
stopped the fight.
Motorists from Omaha had a
most delightful time pulling back
from Louisville in the mud.

Chicago, Aug. 19. Capt. Hubert
L. rtowtrd. appointed state prohibi
tion enforcement director at the be
ginning of the "dry" epoch, sat at
his desk in the federal building and
told some of the reasons why he had
quit a $5,000 a year job to return to
the practice of law. The main rea
sons, as stated by Capt. Howard,
The burden of constant personal
Lack of co-operation on the part
of other government officials.
Big and small conspiracies to
evade the prohibition law.
Capt. Howard's resignation is ef
fective September 1. He will be
succeeded by Ralph W. Stone of Pe
oria, his present assistant.
Capt. Howard says he has expe
rienced many trials and tribulations
since taking up the job of trying to
enforce the dry law.
"What's the use?" he said. "In
the time I have been here, every
possible channel has been used to
bring pressure to bear on this office
to conspire against the law it is
supposed to enforce. Bootleggers
would come up, get turned down on
a permit and come back the next
day with a friend. Probably the
friend would be some prominent
politician. He might even be a per
sonal friend of mine. The object
was always the same to get me to
go easy on some violator of the law.
"When I first took up the job I
learned that a certatin bank presi
dent held some notes on a wholesale
liquor dealer. He went to the liquor
dealer and told him he would can
cel his notes for 10 barrels of
whisky. The point is that when a
prominent citizen, with a reputation
to sustain, will take chances to get
liquor you can bet that everybody
else with a thirst will also take a
chance. , '
"If a man were crooked this job
would be worth anything he pleased
to graft. The state director controls
the supply and that is the key to the
"I started out with the idea that I
could handle the job, and have a
little time for my law practice, but
I find it can't be done."

You'll Drink GuncPs Brew
Bt luse You'll Like It
We knu there isn't a thing in Gund's ' Peerless Brew
that isn't healthful and nourishing. We &nou? it is made
by men who have been expert brewers for years and years.
And we know ii is properly brewed and thoroughly fer
mented and aged.
But no one can make anyone drink anything that doesn't
taste good and you are no exception.
The real reason you will drink Gund's Peerless Brew is
because tastes good. You won't object to it being good for
you but you wouldn't drink it if it didn't taste right. You
would not drink any drink regularly if you had to 'screw up
your courage" to get it down, and it wouldn't make any
difference how much good it did you.

an address at a dinner given here in
his honor last night.
"We are starting on a vast pro
gram of reconstruction," he said.
so it will be well advanced when
the new president takes office. All
capable men. regardless of their po
litical or religious views, are being
brought into action, and the new
government is to be run the same as
a private enterprise.
"Among the things we hope to
accomplish are the reorganization of
the banking system, reorganization

as well as the tariff.
Revise Tax System.
"Our tax system will also under
go a wide and complete overhauling
that will expurge it of all antiquated
and clumsy methods which at pres

Plans for an educational program
include a drive in favor of integral,
popular education, mainly on prac
tical and agricultural lines.
"The labor problem in Mexico is
easier to solve than it appears. The
government is now taking steps that
will greatly shorten this work.
"The majority of those forming
part of the present government are
progressive and enthusiastic young
men. This group of men is exert
ing a powerful influence, in order
that the most rigid honesty be at

public administration. Having this
in mind, a civil service commission
will soon be established and ad

in the universities.
Incidentally Gund's Peerless Brew is a good wholesome drink for
anyone. But the real reason why we ask you to drink it is because it
is made to taste good. And it does.
It will quench any thirst and quench it pleasantly. Pour it into a
glass and watch the thick, rich, creamy foam that alone will make
you want to drink it And the taste ia all its own. It will remind you
so strikingly of the good old friend you loved so well that you won't
