V . y-- v i Quality First A special telegram to "the Topeka Capital from Manhattan, the aeat of veya the Information that rumor 1 current In Manhattan that Out S. Low man and John It Bndr, members of the coaching staff, both have resigned. The Capital special is as follows: Manhattan, Kan.. Persistent ru- IT 0 ' , feasor of physical education, and - Aimeim Director j. n. Dfiouur, ui ; the State .Agricultural college, : had resigned, seemed to bs partlal- ly confimed today. Render refer- . red questioners to President Wi- ters. Waters refused to either confirm or deny the rumor, stating there Is nothing to be said now. : Business men claim to have attend- ed a conference, at whkh a move-' ment was made to ft If the reslg- nation of both men. The two are , said to have been enemies ever sines Bender came to Manhattan last fall. Tha feud between Lowman and Bender has been a matter of common un derstanding throughout the Missouri valley conference. Lowman was atblet-Is director and heed of the department for several years. Bender, the former Cornhueker football star, became a' member of the coaching staff last fall taking charge of football and later the. coaching the baseball squad. The dt- i rector and the football coach wars st loggerheads almost from the start and Lowman, on one occasion during the past winter, stated that ha would resign unless Bander was dismissed. Several weeks ago the head of the institution. President Waters, announced that the duties of the coaches had been re-arranged and revised whereby Low. man was to serve as proressor of ths physical education, while Bender was to be the athletic director and head coach. This was a demotion for Low-man and a promotion for Bender. Low-man's friends In Manhattan business circles evidently have taken a hand la the fray and President Waters presumably has called tor the resignation of both officials. , vi Lowman was not the onlymber of ths Manhattan coaching staff with whom Bender was at outs. Carl Mern- . i .wu . i. ... v a a r er was i'ilbrc i tuuu -. during the past winter, but announced his resignation several weeks ago to accept a better position at "Columbia university In New York. Bender had filed charges against Merner at Manhattan and asked for the dismissal of the baskstball tutor. Ths charges never were pressed, due to Mercer's acceptance of the place at Columbia, &X , V vD T ,r'rV. r-1 ri"' "t i ii n' mi l i'i w 11 f in ---i a s ASHING QN T DH HE-TOP (Continued from Page One.)

Lee Ftohl declaresbut not boastfully that his Indian crew, is on top of the American league heap "because it has been playing champlonohlp baseball." - "Team work is tho real secret of our success so far," ssserts the manager of ' the Cleveland squad. "The boys all ' are , plnylng together. Individual starring Is an unknown quantity with us now. And, bent of all, the utmost harmony prevails. When you get such a conblnation you usually find a team that Is up near the top. "Our pitchers are going good. Some folks think thiey will crack later on. It wouldn't surprise me If they pitched even better baseball when warmer weather comes. Two or three of my slabmen are 'hot day' pitchers. Yet they have been able to win games in near sero weather and hold the opposition to a small number of hits and runs. "Yes, we have been getting some of the 'breaks.' But Isn't that part of baseball? Furthermoi-e, we haven't had more than our share. To some folks It seems that a few of our victories have been lucky. But those who have analysed our record find that most of the so-called luck we have bad 'has been nothing else but the seising f an opportunity when It offered and then riding through on It to victory. "Those who say everything Has broken well . for as overlook the fact that, Kay Chapman, our shortstop has been laid up with a bad knee. Chapman ranks as one o! the best short-fielders in the game. This loss naturally has weakened us to some extent, although Wambsganss has filled In ths gap very weU. "Are you fellows nourishing pen- rBv nant hopes?" we asked. ' I "Our whole thought now., is to win today'a ball game," answered ' Fohl "We aren't dealing In futures. Our business is , that of the present We are going after.' every game just as If that- one game meant the pennant. That's the only' way. "How about .Speaker? . How much has his presence meant? "Much." was Fohl's rejly. "Before the coming of Tria the team Itself ranked only ordinary. , But when Tris got into the lineup it acted like an electric vibrator on the rest of the boys. They knew what Trig could do, They knew about hla wonderful fielding skill and about great batting. Then they sat down and re-flgured their chances. "Without Speaker the boys figured they might be in the fight With Speaker they decided they Would; be In It. Trie filled them with pep and fighting spirit and the result Is apparent now In the standing of clubs. The Indians in 11 home games so far this season have drawn 94,000, Their total home attendance In 1915 was 164. Should thay- go home from their eastern trip In, first place, it Is certain that during the following 10 games the attendance surely wilt total beyond 65,000, That would mean thf?n that the attendance for 20 games In 1918 would be greater than for all the home contests last season. As a road attraction the Indians are the real thing in the Johnson circuit just now. If they keep on drawing at the present rate, they will have played to more abroad crowds by June 1 than they did In all their road games a year ago. And, In the meantime, Jim Dunn, the new owner of the club, Is smiling a smile that continues to linger.

CHALMERS ' They're buying motor cars today as they're hiring men on ability. " Blue eyes, brown hair, a rugged jaw, mean something but not so much as they used to. They're seeking ability. And that is not always measured in stature, weight and reach. Likewise in a car. They look her oyer, learn her wheel-base, note the tire sizes, ask the bore and stroke of the engine and then They make her perform. They make her hit the trail, they roll her up the stiffest hill. They let her out on the straightaway; and they make her accelerate at slew speeds. It's the only' way to judge a car. And we're partic-ularly glad, because we have in the 8400 r.p.m. Chalmers a car that answers erery human wish. You can almost talk to this animal. You can lead her anywhere. We know of no one who has ever called on her for too much, nor asked of her anything she couldn't deliver. She's like a -yottng-ballplayer who keeps driving 'em ' over the right-held fence. ; She's theie, And the reason is her magnificent 3400 r. p. m. engine When history in our business is written, 8400 r. p. m. wfi -occupy a thick chapter. Simply beoauBe at the lowest speeds she saves her energy, turns up only 500 r. p. m. at 10 miles an hour, ' and 1000 r. p. m. at 20 miles an hour. Thus vsng only 18 per cent of her power at such speeds and saving 62 to 80 per cent for winding, hilly roads, bad terns, and on occasions when a little extra power grws you possession of the road-One ride erf fire miles behind the wheel and you'll own it. Ask jow dealer about Chalmers service inspection coupons, negotiable at all Chalmers dealers everywhere. This system is a most important consideration in buying your car.

The Chicago Nationals, although winning a greater percentage of their games so far this season, are not showing the "pepp" which Manager Tinker expects them to. For this reason, he stepped Into the fray, In the first game against the Cubs' old rivals, the New York Giants. Tinker's presence put a new spirit Into the players,, and kept them on their toes. The grounds were muddy, but nevertheless, the manager was satisfied that his players have the 'stuff if they will only cut loose with it. After the game he said he was pretty sore about the legs, but was going to Jump Into the past time every time his regulars showed Uck of "pepp". Tinker's arm seemed ss good as ever, and he seemed to have his batting eye, although he did not get a safe hit during the game. Thorpe Making Good With the Brewers Milwaukee. May 20.
