OMAHA. Neb, April 17. In a game that kept the crowd on their tiptoef from the start to the final, Omaha nosed ont the Lincoln team in the ninth inning by a score or 9 to 8. After the first stania Lincoln started to put the game on ice by hammering Styles and Closman with abso-lue abandon, but with the insertion of Hurler Blodgett into the fray the Omahas stemmed all further run getting. In the fourth and fifth rounds of the game the Lincoln club managed by consistent hitting, to amass seven scores. In the fourth a three -bagger by Wolfe, with singles by Narveson, McAllister and Blerbauer and an error by dchliebner brought the quartet of tallies, While in the fifth McAllister again came to the fore with a three base jolt and aided and abetted by Carleton and Kruger, with two baggers and a single from Blerbauer three more runs were garnished. Omaha's runs were all amassed by hitting in which Mason, the Lincoln-He moundsman, suffered severely. Manager Krug of the Omaha team distinguished himself by getting five singles out of five trips to the plate. every one of which was driven to center field. In the ninth Krug's fifth single with a two bagger by Kafora and a single by Schliebnernetted the runs necessary to give the conlest to ihe home club. Lincoln amassed a trio of two base and three bane hits during the afternoon.

' PLAYING LINEUP GIYEN, OUT , . MANAGER M'INTRYE II 4 MADE SELECTIONS FOR POSITIONS. Says He Like Looks of the Tigers and Promises a Well Balanced Ball Club. Friday, April 23, is opening day in the Western baseball league an1 Matty Mclntyre has practlcr.lly completed his pick from the squad of candidates and is ready to announce the team which will start the season in Tiger duds to clash with the Denver Grizzlies at the local ball park in the pennant campaign's Inaugural game. Barring a possible revision of Judgment during the final week of practice preparations, the Tigers will line up as follows: Catchers Harry Williams and Lew McAllister. Pitchers Buff Ehman, P.ex Dawson. Ole Narveson, Barney Schrelber, Earl Morse and Star Mason. First base Louie Blerbauer. Second base Iavy Lloyd. Third base Walter Krueger. Shortstop Snooks McGafflgan. LINCOLN Y. M. Left field Roy Wolfe. Center field and utility player Heine Schrelber. Klglit Held Ttoe Carleton. Manaaer and substitute outfielder Matty Mclntyre, Manager Mclntyre is enthused over the prospects and expresses con fidence in the ability of the Tigers to go the pace. 'Thi fact that the club lost nearly all its exhibition games means noth ing at all," says Matty. "In the first place, the Tigers were pitted against teams in better physical condition. I have avoided rushing things, being satisfied to take the squad along at an easy gait in the practice workouts. The Omaha players, who started practice only a few days ahead of the Tigers, are in better trim physically, but by next Friday we shall be ready for the bell. "Candidly, I like the looks of the Tigers. We will have a well-balanced ball club. Some of the fans, I am told, have been skeptical concerning he catching. Here is one department where 1 believe we are going to be fttrong. Harry Williams has been going great from the day I transferred him from first base and put him behind the bat. He Is a natural catcher and never should have tried to play first. Nobody could ask for a better backstopper, while his throwing to the bases is getting better every day. On the level, I predict that Harry Williams will get. up to the majors this fall as a catcher. He is so big and strong, and be takes so much Interest in the game that I shall use him as our regular catcher, which means that he will backstop about two-thirds of the games. And he will hit much better than tho average catcher. Lew McAllister will be a valuable man. His long experience in the game will be a big help to the team, especially In coaching the pitchers. I am satisfied that there are few plRyers in the Western league who know so many of the finer points in baseball as Lew. And he is not through as a player hy any means. I played with McAllister when I first went to Detroit and he can hit today Hist as well as ever. No sir, there is no weakness in tho catching department. We shall have as good catch ing as any club in the league. "The pitchers have been coming along nicely. Buff Ehman is in condition to pitch at his best, and Lin coln fans will understand what that means. Narveson is not yet In trim, hue he hss shown me so much stuff mid knowledge of pitching during the workouts that I expect htm to be a consistent winner. Dawson Is big and strong Ideal material from which to develop a great pitcher. Lew McAllister will make a winner out of Dawson, for the big fellow from Canada hss unusual natural ability. Barney Schrelber has been coming fast during the past week. He pitched eight innings of line baseball the other day against Omaha and convinced nte that he knows how to pitch. Lew McAllister assures me that lie knows how to handle Harney and get the best results from hla pitching, and 1 am willing to believe that Lew knows what ho is talking about. Morse and Mason are the two young sters on our pitching staff.. Both are promising and I shalT take two or three more weeks before announcing my pick of the pair. We shall carry live pitchers. "Louie Blerbauer at first baae Is a great young hall player. He can field his position, hit the ball and run the bases. Not a man on the squad has anything on Ixjule In seal. There Is no occasion to worry over the first bsse posit Ion Ixwle will play It right up to the handle. "Dsvy Lloyd hs been slower getting Into condition thnn any other player, hut I am told that It Is his habit. The fans know better than 1 as to Davy's ability, so 1 am hanking on him to he .one of the steadiest players on the team. Over at third we have a youg w ard In Walter Krueger. That's ths only thing I can say of Krueger and do him justice. I never saw a third baseman with a better wiug in heav ing the ball across the diamond And Krueger stands up there and goes after every ban that comes his way, pulling off stops that would be con sidered phenomlnal In the big show. This boy, mark my prediction, will be the talk of the Western league. I am not afraid of his hitting. He Is young in the game and he has shown enough natural ability to satisfy me that he can be taught how to hit the hall. Just a little more confidence and experience and Krueger will make them all take notice. "Snooks McOaffigan at shortstop Is an exceptional ball player. There are few like him in the minors. His ground-covering utility and his speed on the bases combine to make him an unusually valuable player. "Wolfe, the new outfielder, isa fine uall player. He has strengthened the Tigers in every department of the game. Out in center is Heine Schreib-er, one of the greatest natural judges of a fly ball I ever saw, while be has a throwing arm second to none. Heine only needs to be sn average hitter to shine as one of the stars of the league, for as an . outfielder he has few peers -Photo by F. Mcdonald. C. A. JUNIORS. in minor circles. The question of whether I shall be a regular outfield er or a substitute depends entirely on the exigencies of the situation. Carleton hurt his knee early in the practice and it was only a few days ago that he began to show form. If 1 am not needed,, I may play the bench, going in as a pinch-hitter. In case any of the inflelders be injured, Heine Schrelber can be transferred to, the vacant position and I' will go into the ouineia. , . . "I am not claiming the pennant for Lincoln, but the outlook is encourag ing and the ball olub that beats the Tigers will have to have real goods. We have no sluffers on the squad and the fans will find every Tiger dong nis Dest." After the tow-game series is con cluded in Omaha tomorrow, the Tigers will return home to stage two daily workouts at the M street yard. Most of the time this week will be de voted to putting the finish touch onto the pitching staff. Italian scientists recently recorded temperature of 138 in the victim of a lung disease, the highest figure ever known In a human being. OFOR YOUNG 9H MEN .

Jataab gtleaa Fisrr That He Will Have the at Igrtttleet Maektae lm Ttsn. Jnmho Stiehm, director of athletic at the University of Nebraska, is looking ahead several months by prepa. ing in the spring for football, the fa-TOrite college pastime of tie fall sea son. For nearly a month. Jumbo and a squad of thirty to forty Cornhuskers have been staging daily workout or. the university gridiron. It cannot be denied that the Huskers have been stirring up something of a commotion in western football circles during th past several years and if the material in prospect for the 1915 team and the character of the spring workouts provide a basis from which the coming season's achievements may be fore casted, then the Cornhuskers will keep on "commotionlng" and spreading dismay in the camps of rival schools. In short, the Huskers are facing an other successful football season. The Cornhusker coach has been drilling his huskies in the rudiments and in running signals on new plays. The workouts have been fully as stiff as if the regular gridiron campaign were in progress, bo when September rolls around and practice is resumed the head ooach figures on having the candidates so well groomed In the preliminaries that it will be possible to be playing real football in half the time that would be possible under the old system of having but one practice season, the latter in the fall. The sig nal running has been more intricate and exacting than at any previous spring practice on the Nebraska gridiron. A series of puzzling shift plays will be used by the Huskers during the coming campaign. The coach has been figuring out new offensive tactics all winter and the inauguration of spring practice has enabled him to work up and perfect new plays until he is convinced that the Cornhuskers should have the most effective scoring machine ever flashed by a Nebraska eleven. Prospect Encouraging. From the standpoint of high class material, the prospects should be extremely encouraging to Cornhusker adherents. Captain Rutherford, Cham berlain, Abbott, Shields, Corey, Nor-rls and Balis are the veteran members of last year's all-victorious eleven on whom the coach is depending for another season of service. To fill the gaps resulting from the loss of Halh gan. Potter, Cameron, Warren and Delamatre the material in sight is the most promising in Cornhusker annals Casting the veterans and the freshman players of last fall Into one heap, the layout for next fall is as follows. Ends Rlddell, Chamberlain, Balis Hoadley, Porter, Peering, Caiey and W. Kositzky. Tackles Corey, Shaw, Shields and E. Koaltzky. Guards Abbott. Roberts, Norrls, Dale, Donegan and Van Metre. Center Moser, Sheldon, Halbersleben and Mlnnlck. Quarterback Cook. Kelly, Hoadley and Halfback Rutherford, Gardner, Reese, Seltzer, Proctor, Dempster, Yale and Hartman. Fullback Otoupalik and Doyle. The probable transfer of the spectacular Chamberlain from halfback to end may surprise the average Cornhusker supporter, yet the head coach believes Chamberlain will be even more lrresistable at one of the wing positions than if regularly played behind the line. Chamberlain played defensive end the greater part of the 1914 season and should be more efficient than ever with another year of experience. The shift plays which the coach has evolved will permit Chamberlain to carry the ball as frequently as if he were played at half Society Bran This'is a popular price for a is rich in appearance, perfect hand tailored and draped by greatest designer. yoUNG , i Mayer o Eli Shire, Pres. back, while his ability to break op plays and tackle the runner when at end and his speed in going down the field, following punts, should make him more valuable than ever to the Cornhusker cause. Rlddell, who is the most likely candidate for the other wing position, should prove to be one of the most efficient ends ever developed in the history of the game at the Cornhusker institution. Rlddell has been taking on weight, while losing none of his speed. With Chamberlain and Rlddell on the wings, the Huskers would present two ends averaging 190 pounds. A Wealth of Material. Stiehm has a wealth of husky material for the tackles, the guards and at center. W. Koslusky, E. Kozitsky, Shaw, Dale and Moser, are the huskiest of the new line candidates and, with Corey, Shields, Abbott and Norrls as a nucleus, the line positions from tackle to tackle are presenting no worries. The shoes of Herb Potter, last year's quarterback, may be hard to fill. Two of the most promising candidates for that position are Cook and Kelly, while Hoadley Is another likely prospect. Cook probably has the advantage because of his four years of experience at Beatrice high and another season on the Cornhusker freshmen eleven. Cook has one other strong point in his favor he is an exceptional manipulator of drop kicks from the field. The plans of the coach provlda for the development of at least two quarterbacks, so Kelly, Hoadley and Caley will make the competition keen. Behind the line, the outlook is most encouraging of all. Dick Rutherford, next year's captai& will be at his old position left halfback which means that he will be playing the game with the same brilliant results which have featured the Cornhuskers' games for the-$ast two years. Gardner, former star halfback of Omaha high, will be a formidable candidate for a position as Rutherford's running mate, while Herb Reese, the track sprinter, also will bid for a halfback position. The other halfback prospects Proctor, Seltzer, Dempster, Yale and Hartman are of such a grade as to insure the most efficient backfleld layout in Cornhusker history. The Fullback Outlook. Otoupalik and Doyle will have the call at the fullback position, although the fall practice may bring forth other candidates. Otoupalik proved himself a sensational Hue plunger and end runner during his membership on last fall's freshman team. On the 'varsity this fall he should be more efficient than ever. The punting problem suggests no worries. Ted Rlddell has been booting spirals of fifty and sixty yards during the Bpring practice and should be the most efficient punter seen on Nebraska field since the days of Jim my Gibson four years ago. Scrimmage practice is to be Installed early In May, the head coach planning to have the Husker candidates in trim to play a football game for the ontertainment of returning alumni during commencement week early In June.
