if W Vfl4
Playing before a crowd of more
than 400 pocket billiard fans last
night at the t)e Luxe parlors, Harry
Moon defeated Frank Riley, 100 to
52, in the first game of the state
tournament.
Moon played a good game of pock
et billiards from the first inning un
til the 100 markers were chalked up
"after his name. - His ability to send
the various colored) balls sailing
round on the green cloth until they
found a pocket in which to fall was
one of the features of his play. Moon
generally left his opponent few op-
1 enings.
The winner of the first game
Started with a run of 24 and then
played safe, scoring a run of 28 dur
ing his third inning at the table. His
high run of 28, two safeties and-runs
of 10 and 26 gave him almost a
continuous run of 8, a feat consider
ed deserving of credit in 14-4 rack
nool.
Riley played a good game, but the
ability of his oooonent to leave tew
openings during the 14 frames re
sulted m his low scores.
The score by innings:
Moon "...14 2 0 0 10 2 0 2 9 9 9 1100

contests next season. w The ; "Bean
town gndsters plowed through the
1920 schedule with but few defeats
and during the' year bucked' up
against several of the ; strongest
elevens in the east. , ,
Boston only loses two veteran, pig-:
skin warriors this year and withne
return to the told ot nine seasoned
players and a flock of second-string
men, prospects for anofher winning
team in 1921 already appear, bright.
The eastern, school expects to
send its team west in 1922. . and is
anxious to schedule a- game with
either Nebraska or Creighton.
Besides turning out winning foot
ball and basket ball teams, Boston
colleee develops base ball, tra-.k and
hockey squads capable .of trouncing
several of the larger eastern
schools. ' 1

Oppose Crap
Games Among
, BallPlayers
Rickey, Gleason and Cubs'
Boss Clamp Lid Down on
Poker Chips and "Gallop
ing Dominoes.'
i C'liioHito Tribune-Omaha Bee eased Wire.
h "Chicago, Jan. 5. Loyalty and dis-
cipline, known in army life, as
morale, will be tin important factor
in.-base ball during the season of
1921, if one may judge' by advance
statements of club owners and man
agers. Both the manager of the
Cubs and Manager Gleason of the
White Sox, have openly ; declared
against crap games,, poker sessions
for .big stakes, and .'other forms of
gambling; 'which not only tend to
take the players' minds toff base ball,
but cause' them to break the rule
against late hdurs. s r
Branch Rickey, boss of the Cardi
nals, always has opposed gambling
in his club, and is said, to have laid
down a strict rule prohibiting it in
atiy form next season. .Miller Hug
gins, leader of the Yankees, is an
other who has declared himself, and
it is known that many other major
league bosses are of the same mind.
Until last season gambling for
large stakes was seldom seen among
the White Sox, players and it was
noted, that no big gambling was done
at any time by . those members who
came through the crisis with clean
records. An incident of lat; sum
mer will illustrate: '
Traveling east in July, the players
were in .a parlor car, and Manager
Gleason wasn't present, having gone
on art earlier train. One of the party
innocently displayed a pair of dice,
another, one of the squad, remarked
that he would shoot just once, for
a dime. In a jiffy a crap game was
stasted. ,
The innocent fellows beat it at
once, and the stakes' jumped from a
dime to a dollar and then to $5 and
on up, until as much as $40 lay on
the carpet' for a single roll of the
ivories. The fellows who were
shooting for the big stakes are
among those indicted by, the Cook
county grand jury. y I
. Because of the probable oresence
of many young and ambitious ptay
erson both Chicauo teams, it seems
1 likely that the managers may be able
to develop a high morale.

In Intercollege Meet
Oxford,1 Jan. 5. Several of the

a place for themselves in athletics.
Alfred K. Reese of . Nebraskal
now at Lincoln college, Qxford,

at Exeter college, and A. K. Davis
of Virginia, at Balliof. Davis beat
Clarke in a very close match.' the
set scores being 9-11, 7-5, 6-2.
Both play a 'hard back-court
game, with very little to choos be
tween them as .to ground strokes.
Davis has a little the edge on court
tactics, but both are potential ma

1 i'
Kansas City Woman Thought
Case Hopeless Tanlac
Restores Health.'
"I suffered until I thought I never
would be well again, but Tanlac has
built me up 15 pounds in weight and
got me to feeling just fine," declared
Mrs. Hattie May Weldon, 623 South
Eighth street, Kansas City, Kan., re
cently. "I just want to tell everybody
about what Tanlac has done for me.
Why, at the time I began taking the
medicine I had been in such a poor
state of health for two years that I
was constantly having to stay in bed
for weeks at a time, and when I
wasn't in. bed , I was hardly able to
creep around. Everything I ate
soured in my stomach and formed
gas which pressed up into my chest
so bad I could hardly get my breath.
I finally lost my appetite completely,
and got to where I seemed to have
no energy at all.. I couldn't sleep at
night, would just roll and tosa the
hours through, and mornings I felt
so tired I couldn't do my housework.
My head ached terribly and I often
got so dizzy I couldn't stoop over
wuriuui iainng. t. limes DiaCK
spots came before my eyes and I
couldn't see. I had pains all through
my body and always had to be tak
ing something for constipation. .
Well, I kept reading about Tan
lac in the paper and, although I had
little idea it would help me, I finally
decided to try 'it as a last resort.
You can imagine my surprise when
after taking nearly a half bottle I
found my appetite coming back to
me. . When 1 finished that bottle. I
got another, and then another.' and
kept right on taking it until now I
don't feel like the same person. I
am eating just anything I want
without suffering the least hit after
ward and all my strength and energy
has come back to me. All the pains
have disappeared from my body,
I sleeo like a child every night and
am doing my housework without the
least trouble. I only hope my state
ment may lead others to try Tanlac,
for it is the grandest -medicine in the
world, and I wouldn t think of bemg
without it, even if the price was 10
times what it is." i

The: Bricklayer's
Y p
: l, 4v.
hr why?.
11 --s y """' ';y !
S Laborer
Coal
Fmblem
In 1915 a bricklayer
was earning 75c an hour
was given an increase
This gave him a wage of $1.25 an hour; $4
a day more than he was receiving in 1915. An
increase of 66 per cent. But he needed it!
The price of street car transportation for his
family had increased 25 per cent.
The cost of maintaining a home had almost
doubled. , , .
The price of coal increased by leaps and
bounds.
Taxes increased.
' The cost of everything he touched increased
in price. .... u
We have the Same
m to meet
We had to pay similar increases to our help
as was received by the bricklayer.
Our labor costs increased one and one-half
times between 1915 and 1920. We had' to meet
the increases askea in order to keep up our serv
ice to our customers arid to provide a living wage
for our family of 450 employes.
Taxes
. Our tax rate in 1920 was one
and two-thirds that of the 1915
rate. This is a big item in our
expenses and we have no alterna
tive but to pay the taxes levied.
oa
It cost us $7.73 a ton for coal. In 1915 a ton of the
same coal cost $2.78. Freight alone on a ton of coal is now
$2.96, which is more than the price of the coai plus the
freight in 1915. Coal is the greatest item of our expenses.
More than $1,000,000, or about one-third of our total earn-'
ings, was spent for this one commodity.
So we were compelled to ask an increase
Our petition
The
increase
asked
We petitioned the, city council for
a maximum increase in iates of only
' 2 cents per kilowatt hour because
we were compelled to do it. We had
to either ask for the increase orper-
; mit our properties to "run down."
The income we are receiving is not
enough to pay our manufacturing
, costs; to replace vorn-out machinery,
and to pay us a fair return on a fair
value of our property. Less than 1
per cent has been received on the last
five million dollars spent by us in ex
tending our service to the people of
Omaha.
Continued satisfactory service v in
your home and the growth of Omaha
demands that our properties be kept
in first class, tip-top condition.
Isn't that fair?
The increase we ask adds only 2 cents to
our present rate one of the lowest in Amer
ica which would give us the same rate we
received in 1916.
'You' cannot operate your home on the in
come you received in 1915. Can you? ,,
In 1915 we were receiving a rate of 8
cents, but in 1917, on figures based on 1915
costs, our rates were decreased.
The Gas Company, officially and "unof
ficially," made five increases during the past
year as follows:
The general increase on each 1,000 cubic,
feet, used.
The service charges.
Thay pay no taxes. Their taxes were elim
inated; ours were increased.
The pressure of the gas has been lowered,
giving the consumer less gas for his money.
It takes the housewife longer to cook with
gas than it used to because the heating ability
has been decreased.
' Our increase will add only SO cents a month
to the average residential bill, which is much
less-than the increase made to the public in
any other commodity.

Speaking of Service
We stand, unafraid, to state that our service ranks
with the best in the United States. This is a bold
statement, but it also goes as a challenge. If letters
of thanks are an indication, our customers are aware
of our excellent, instant service. But itshould be evi
dent also that this good service can not long continue
unless we have enough revenue to keep our proper
ties in good, serviceable condition.
