Omaha kiddies may cherish the
hope. they will not be deprived this
year of circus joys.
City council committee of the
v.hole experienced a mellowing yes
terday, whch resulted in a decision
to modify the prohibitive circus
license tax adopted last December.
. Commissioner John Hopkiirs.
youngest member of the council and
father of a 5-months-old girl, was
not moved by the pleas of those
who forecast 'a circuless Omaha
unless the license fee w-a reduced.
Commissioner II. B. Zimman, one
of the .bachelor members of the
council, espoused the kiddies' cause.
The circus fees adopted last De
cember carried a charge of $750 per
day for a three-ring circus, $500 per
day for two rings, $10 each for side
show. Mr. Zimtnan's proposed amend
ment is to charge $250 to circuses
having 30 or less cars. $500 for more
than 30 and less than 60 cars, and
$750 for all (hows having more than

North Platte. Neb., - Aprii 16.
(Special.) King Rhiley, the world's
greatest half-mile dirt track king,
received- word from North Platte
this week that his proposition was
receiving very favorable considera
tion and Kins will again be the lead
ing feature at the annual race event
there July 4. The races this year
will be under, the A. A. A. rules and
no one can enter if they are not
registered in this association and an
acknowledged , professional racer.
Heretofore the races have been of
amateur class only. King is prob
ably the only registered A. A. A.
racer in the state and outside speed
merchants will of necessity have to
be brought in and this is the big
concern of the fair management at
North Platte at . this time, , to find
someone , to. race 'with Rhiley. One
thing is. sure and that is the races
this year, will be faster and more j
thrilling than ever before and there
isn't going 1o' be any chance of a
spectator not getting his money's
worth. -The management plans on
assigning a section of. the grandstand
for Oshkoah so that seats may be
arranged for -ahead of the date.

Perhaps the most assininc thing

cnthuiasts in New
T h c y ' v e con
cocted a petition
to Kencsaw M.
Laudis asking him
to reinstate Babe

to the water to run

URim::JBPhaij 1e.' sus.
pended until May 20th. '
I he , very action in gcttincr to
gether such a petition is an insult to
Uanau. its a challenge to his
judgment in suspending Ruth! It's
likewise a wallop at his juncial at
titude that sentence must be en
, Landis No Codfish.
i What a fine, sort of codfish Landis
would turn out to be if he relented
m the Kuth case it he commuted
sentence even by a day.
But Landis is no codfisn.
He ruled that Ruth couldn't play
the American league circuit until
May 20th and Ruth won t.
It s true that the absence ot Kutn
from the Yankee lineup will be not
merely a financial loss to that club,
but to the American league as a
whole. It's equally true that minus
Ruth for the first five weeks qf tbc
campaign, the xanKS cnances to
clutch another flock, of October mus
lin thin out.
But that's not the fault of Landis.
It's the fault of Ruth.
Instead of petitioning Landis to
lift the Ruthian suspension, the more
sensible thins, it seems, would be to
ask him to. suspend Ruth for a few
million years " beyond May IV. I'or
Ruth is, the person responsible lor it
all.'He knew what might happen
when he hurdle'd the rules, i
But he hurdled 'em anyway, think-
inc. DerhaDS. ' tnat ne , was at mat
moment something ' bigger than the
laws of baseball. -
In full nosession of his senses, Ruth
stuhbornly went ahead add "barn
stormed" when he . knew that the
regulations of the game were against
him: he went ahead despite an addca
personal warning from Landis. He
must have known that justice would
be 'meted out to him. If he has any
reasoning powers at ; allj-wlie must
have, known that he was quite liable
to ; suspension. . .
He knew that suspension wouia
hurt, his team's . chances, hurt the
i Q. Ia a player allowed ' to ground a
club on the slope of a creek bank, It It
la covered with grass? -i
A. Yes. nnleas the banks com within
the, limits ot the k-asmrd aa marked by
the club. It is the duty of the green com
mittee) to mark the limit ot any Itasara
whrre the confusion over each pointe Is
likely to arise.
Q. 'What are the distance limits for
calculating the par of a holer
A. Holes nn to and Including SSO yards
Lre par Si SSI to " yards, inclusive, par
a; 44 to ni, inclusive, par o. over ow.
par d. Peculiar conditions ot the terrain
may, however, alter the above.
(j. I a player allowed to move his uau
on a putting green, where ovar-waier-
ing of the green has made the surface
unusually wet and heavy between tho
ball and the hole?
A. Tea, this is coTrred by the rule on
casual water. The ball may be lifted and
placed, not Bearer tho hole.
Q. Where a ball atops in a water hazard
so that the player can play it though
it ia covered by the water, can the play
er permit his club to touch the water in
addressing the ball?
A. No. If permitted t do so he might
it Mr the water so a to chango the lie
of the. ball.
Q. Is it permissable to smooth or press
down a worm csst on the putting green,
if It lns In the Hne of play?
A. ', It ant be either lifted or
finances of the league. But what
cared he for his team, his league, or
the fans? He didn't consider them.
And now those same fans, for whom
Ruth had absolutely no regard when
he decided for selfish, monetary rea
sons to barnstorm, are trying to get
him back into the game.
And, in their attempt, they are ac
complishing little other than the
heckling of Landis, who is an en
tirely innocent party.
Ruth committed a baseball crime;
Landis was the judge and jury. He
announced sentence a just one. It
was his duty and he performed it.
Why should he now be annoyed by
petitions of fans whose very petition
does nothing but challenge the
square and fair action of Landis?
It's true that through the suspen
sion of Ruth the Yankee owner and
Yankee fans are made to suffer. But
the history of the world teems with
instances where the innocent have
had to suffer with the guilty. And
so the situation brought about by the
Ruth suspension is nothing new.
Good usually comes from evil.
It's quite likely that,the Ruth case
will make the adage true once more.
The knowledge that he is not quite
so grt as the game itself; that he
is liable to the same fines and pun
ishment as any mediocre athlete un
doubtedly have had a certain effect
upon Ruth.. It's shorn him of some
of the swagger air and the prima
donna ideas that possessed him last
season; it has perhaps rendered all
of his hats a little too large for pres
ent ifsc. . ' ' x
Greater Than Baseball.
Ruth, at heart, is not a bad kid.
But -all the praise showered upon
him, and all the plaudits of multi
tudes, got him slightly tangled. He
figured, for' a while, that baseball
simply couldn't-exist without him.
that if he were out of the game the
whole structure of the-sport would
collapse. 1 . -
But not so not so.
: And, therefore, Ruth has come
back to himself and has learned a
real lesson1. which, through, the rest
of his, baseball days should., be aw
fully, awfully helpful to him.

Cardinals and Indians Leading
Race in Major Leagues as Second
Week of Schedule Gets Underway
New York, April 17. The major
league's baseball season still is very
young, and some of the teams ap
parently ' have not hit their stride,
but at the end of the first week's
schedule yesterday Cleveland in the
American and St. Louis in the Na
tional league held ' undisputed pos
session of first place. St. Louis and
Philadelphia- were - tied for second
place in the junior circuit while the
Giants knd Philadelphia occupied
second and third positions in the
Last year in the National league
the Giants, Brooklyn and the Pirates
had things to themselves,' the -St.'
Louis Cardinals bobbing up, in win
ning form too late in the season to
be considered seriously. This year,
however, the Cardinals seem to be
in the race from the start with good
pitching, heavy clouting and sensa
tional all around play. The Pirates
have made a poor start but their
pitching staff is good and their blud
geon wielders many.
Th'e Phillies gave promise of mak
ing things interesting and the Cubs
are not to be' despised. Notwithstand
ing their three defeats by the base
hit crazy Giants,' Wilbert Robinson's
Dodgers ' are something of clouters
themselves and with better work
from the pitchers , will 'go nicely.
Smith and . his new underhanded
style give promise of good things
for Robbie. The Giants look best
of all but they can't afford to loaf.
The big surprise in the American
league is the early good work of the
Athletics. Connie Mack.it seems, may
have gathered anolher great organi
zation of youngsters. And the
Browns, not to be outdone . by the
Cardinals, have hung out' a danger
signal. They have pitchers, and al
ways have had wallopers.
The Washington Senators - are
well organized and Speakers In
dians always in the running indeed,
seem one of the most likely teams
of the lot.
