JTERRAPKA STAB JOURNAL, WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 30, 1919. HUSKERS IN FINE FETTLE fCOJRE AEARLY rOIST A MIMTK AGAIXST JUK BtLLDOGS. his. Toaehdowas 1 Three Periods " Liarola High Wallops the Third Strtnsera. ."he Husker first string waded thru the Cotner line and skirted the Bulldog wings for six touchdowns and three goals from touchdown on Nebraska field in Tuesday afternoon's practice matinee. The game was halted at the end of the third period. The score was 39 to 0. Nebraska played a grand game offensively. TJhe defensive side of the play was not quite up to the brand that must be displayed Saturday against Notre Dame. Comer made three rirsrdowns; which .is proof that the Bulldogs found an occasional opening. Just to prove that releasing the burden of captaincy lifted something of a weight from his shoulders, Schellenberg played a remarkable game. He ,was unerring In his sending and receiving of forward passes and was a glutton when it came to eatrhg up the ground at straight football. Captain-elect Hubka also bore down upon the Cotner defensive like a big ship run amuck. "Schelly" was elected captain pro tem. just prior to the Iowa game with the understanding that he was to be released of the duties before the next big game. Because of the uncertainty of the personnel of the team from week to week in war time, it was decided to make the term of leadership ane of short duration. The retiring captain has in reality been something of an assistant coach. He knows the game from A to Z and is popular with the players. He is not only a tower of strength physically, but is possessed of a stock of gray matter that is always working. Many Forward Passes. Nebraska completed a dozen forward passes "that were good for consistent gains. Her virile offensive baffled the visitors and the marching forward process was seldom halted. Shortly after te Huskers .took possession of the oval for the first time in the opening period, Schellenberg, on a punt formation, broke away for a forty-yard run. The back field consisted of Howarth at quarter, Schelly and Newman at halves and Hubka at full. Brestel was unable to appear because of an examination. From left to right, the line that started the game was composed of: Hartley, Kriemelmeyer, W. Munn, M. Munn, Dana, Lyman, Swanson. A. dozen substitutes were used and during the third quarter the team was largely made up of second stringers. Swanson and Howarth showed up so well that they made Coaches Kline - and Schissler look like profiteers. Schelly, Hubka, Swanson and Howarth were entangled in a series of fancy passes. . The score was Just light of the necessary mark to make it a point a minute. M. F. Jones, principal and coach of York high, officiated as referee. He announced that in all probability the York-Lincoln game will be staged here on November 8. York plays Beatrice' at Y'ork Saturday. An offer carrying a liberal bonus was made the Lincoln management for a Thanksgiving game between the two " at Y'ork in the event that the Cambridge game is canceled. The offer, however, was not accepted. Lincoln High Wins. Lincoln High defeated the Huskers HI on the highjSchool practice field Tues day, 13 to 6. A forward pass, Deffen-baugh to Lewellen, netted sixty yards and a touchdown early in the first quarter. Later in this period Clark fumbled while attempting to circle the varsity rookies' end and Reynolds, who recovered the . leather chased forty yards for a count In the second period, Pugh intercepted a forward pass and cantered fifty yards . for Lincoln's second and final touchdown. The game was divided into ten minute quarters. "Brick" True, old Lincoln High star, was the referee. BOCKJiB SITS PRETTY. Able to Place His Men Exactly Where He Wanta Them. ' NOTRE DAME, Ind., Oct. 29. The Notre Dame nquatf Is now in perfect condition aiid,. unless Lockard's. knee lest down, Koc.k-"ijh . ;hii place every man just where he wants him. Today's scrimmage showed the varsity defense strong against the freshmen, who could not gain at all, tho they kept the ball all the time. The team will have scrimmage every day until it leaves for Lincoln. It is Rockne's hope to offset as far as possible the inevitable lack in experience that comes frmn having no real games. To keep the men trying their best, he will not yet Rive out who will make up the squad that will make the trip. SAID BOLT WAS CLEVER. . I . .- Decision Wna Awarded Johnny Don-dee Over Frankle Callahan. BOSTON, Oct. 28. (Leased Wire Service) After twelve spiritel rounds of fighting tonight Johnny Dundee was awarded tho de cision over Frankle Callahan. They were active from the start, but Callahan was not ns fast as in previous battle here.

Ernest Hubka, product of the Beatrice school of. football, was once ambitious to become a Kraut tackle. He 'has since abandoned his ambition for the bright lights of the backlield.

He was elected Tuesday afternoon Just prior to the practice tilt with ()tner.

Coffroth of the national boxing committee. - -- - t-.- -- - Wlllard's telegram says: "Just returned to Wichita Falls, where you wire awaited me. Will be unable to come to New York. Have promised committee this state to put on at least two short bouts. Committee here will make arrangements for boxing partner." Chairman Coffroth stated that he' would not accept Willard's refusal as final.-- The western promoter plans sending another telegram in an effort to convince WUlard that the greatest financial returns can be reaped by a bout In New York in which he is one of the principals. BOXING SEASON UESIMES. Enforced . Recess Has Done ' Sport Much Good. PHILADELPHIA, Oct. 29. (Leased Wire Service.) Boxing clubs will soon flourish again. Tile enforced recess due to the influenza epidemic has done the sfiort much good, It- has -been partially purgeI--of -the fly-by-night promotr-r, and the days of excessive purses are passed. The Cambria club, which controls the sport in the northeastern section of the city, is the first to throw open Its doors since the "fitr' began, has been lifted. It will have Its regular show on Friday night. The program will consist of bouts- between little fellows, with Hunk McGovern. A. Port Richmond, favorite, meeting Jack Eislc, a coming New York star, in the main -bout. On Saturday night the National Athletic association reopens its arena with a double windup in which Lew Tendler, the newsboy champion, will fnce Frankle Callahan, whom Benny Leonard lias side-stepped in the final bout and Jack Hrcnnan and Tom Cowler. heavyweights in the other half. Those two heavywrieht hopes are-eager to match their skill , against Jack Dcmpspy, In fact, they claim that one or the other should have the choice to face Dempsey. It would have Insured a real fight. . The Olympia club will not reopen until November 11, altho a special show is to be given at tho Broad street areno on November 6, managed by. Jimmy Dougherty -pt Ilpervilie, Jack Dempsey. and Battling lie Livingsky, to the particular. If Dempsey tries, .the bout should be short and decisive. De Livlnsky has been working between decks in the submarine yards in- Connecticut and has much of his speed. He never had any hitting power to blow. Ring leaders class him as the champion no-hit boxer of the present day. It is safe to say that If iie makes an effort in this bout Dempsey should beat him on hits. NON-PARTISAN IN ITS FAULTS Present-Congress Una Exhibited Llt-tie I'arty Spirit. NFW YORK;1 Oct. 29. (Leased Wire Service.) Under the title, "Congress and Party," the New York World publishes the following editorial: In truth it must be said of the present congress thnt few, if any, of Its predecessors exhibited less of party spirit. It has been non-partisan in its faults as well as In its virtues. On several occasions democrats as well as republicans, in numbers too large, have figured as obstructionists or demagogs, chiefly In S-.. Aal 4aw H. K ' rrf .'1-.V mm? MAilP. RIGHT tasVes RIGHT Fendrich. Afdker m EvanvilleIfd. I sal the senate, but moat of these mistaken 1 gentlemen have been properly flealt with by ttei constituents at the primaries. If there had been no evil Influence outside of Washington, such as the untimely presidential candidacy of Theodore Roosevelt and the anxiety of the profiteers to preserve the swollen gains after the war by means of plutocratic tariffs, it is probable that the partisan outbreaks in the senate would have been less noticeable. It is to be remembered, however, that even in that body some of the president' most loyal supporters' hav been republicans, like Nelson and Borah, and some of his most unreasonable ' antagonists democrats, like Chamberlain. i When this congress met a year ago, last March, the house of representatives was so evenly divoted politically that its organization began a personal rather than a party. If Mr. Mann could have commanded the rotes of all republicans and independent of republican leanings, he and not Mr. Clark would have been speaker. In spite of several deaths and resignations the party division remains so close to this-day" thai if republicans were disposed to take advantage of absenteeism they might easily control affairs. Considering the fact that the great majority of republicans and democrats in both branches have sustained the administration in all its war measures, the necessity for the re-election of a democratic congress. as such, and solely for the purpose of war is not apparent. It U true that a republican congress bent and twisted by Theodore Itoosevelt and the patriots of protection and privileges, founded upon an economic war after the peace, would bea calamity, but a republican congress generously Inspired need not excite epprehension. For example, if such a thing were possible who should care If faithful republicans were elected as successor to Kitchin of North Carolina. Van Dyke of Mlnne-sola, ltandaIiof California and buddies- ton and Dent of Alabama? Randall is a democratic pacifist-prohibitionist. The others are democrats of the strictest sort and yet Kitchin, as chairman of the ways and means committee, has announced a purpose, well illustrated in his leadership of levying taxes sectionally; Van Dyke and Randall were opposed to the war, and Dent was so strongly commited to pacificism that as chairman of the house com mittee on military affairs he had to surrender management of the great army bills as they reached the house of representatives to Julius Kahn, the ranking republican member. STATUS OF AIECBAFT PROGRAM Liberty Motor and De Havlland Plane Sensations of Year. WASHIN'OtON, Oct. 29. (Leased Wire Service.) Now that all the aircraft Investigations have ceased and all the official and unofficial reports have been or shortly will have been made public, it is possible to describe the present status of the American aircraft program not its -alleged failures of six months ago, but Its results today. First It may be a surprising statement to make, but it is nevertheless supported by an examination of records from the western front -as well as production charts In the United States, tlje Liberty motor and the De Havlland aeroplanes are the sensation o fthe. year. When the history. of the war comes to be. written it'will be that tho engine, and battle plane'made by the United States came in the nick of time and should the war be prolonged another year, the conrtlbu-tion from American craft will rank high among our military achievements. THE DEATH ROLL. t General Michel Oreste. NEW YORK, Oct. 23. General Michel Oreste, one time president of Haiti, died nere early today of pneumonia and other complications, soon after landing at an American port from France. He was fifty-nine years old. and was born in Jacmel. Haiti. A revolution by General Theodor and Oreste Zamor forced his abdication and flight In January. 1914. He went to Jamaica and thence to Paris. WITH THB.MGHT POLICE. Fourteen arrests were made by various policemen between 9 and 10:20 p. m Tuesday. The offenders were all charged with riding bicycles -without lights. None of them were taken to the police station but were told to report there at 9 a. m. Wednesday for trial in police court. Mrs. Kuth Florea, Miss Rose Brown, alias Miss Eme!y. Greenby and,. Clay neimi were arrested at 9:40 p. m. Tues day by Captain Johnstone and taken to the police station, where they are being held pending an Investigation. A Pershing Presidential Boom. (Memphis Commercial Appeal.) Texas papers are beginning to talk presidential possibilities for 1920. and several of them, notably the McKinley- Courier-Gazette, are seeing Generat Pershing's star on the horizon.' The boom, of course, has Its origin In the American commander's record in this great, world war. In the light of recent events It is almost a surety that the war will bo over, and for us victoriously over, by the time the candidate-picking for the next president beginB. Pershing, as the head of our triumphant army, will lie the national Idol, and what he wants he will get.. We are great hero worshipers, and victorious generals hnve never been stinted In honors. The golden sickle has been In readiness to cut the laurel for the unfading crown of warriors. Washington came through the conquering light of the revolution to the first presidency. Jackson might never have gone "over the top" to the highest place in the nation had It not been for the Creek war and for the splendid winning of the battle of New Orleans.

Zach-ary Taylor came back from Mexico soon to find himself elevated to tha highest place within tha gift of the people, and Grant put off the martial uniform of his country to wear the robes of the chief executive. ' Thus we see tha rreat generals of our various struggles, foreign and internecine, hava never failed to receive the appreciative endorsement of the people. It is entirely within the line of possibility that General Pershing will find the rose of official authority blooming at his head if he cares to pluck it. He Is too much absorbed in this war to give his political fortunes a thought; it has probably never occurred to him that the future would open for him along that avenue. In the event of his presidential nomination It is hard to say out of which national party camp he would come, for even in an intimate biography he is not "placed" as a democrat or a republican. He seems to have been too busy, being a soldier all of his life against the Apaches, against the Moroin tha Philippines, with Kurokl In Manchuria, on our border and over the Mexican line hunting Villa, and finally in France to give much time to politics. Hut If he Is nominated, whichever side puts him out wW have an asset hard to overcome. The millions of men who fought with him tn this last great war will remember only that he Is "Black Jack Pershing," who dared for their safety and well-being and who led them to final victory, and the ballot boxes will hold the record of their affection. On the other hand, the man who has been so thoroughly a soldier all of his life may not be persuaded "to change his spots" and become a political marker. He will have world-wide fame enough to satisfy any ambition, asd he may prefer to be recorded In history as a general without a superior rather than risk becoming an"average" president. COLONEL AND KAISER. War Oace Averted by tie Flrmaeaa of Prealdaat Rooaevelt. The crisis arose oyer Veneiuela, which had come so near to precipitating war be tween tho United States and England in 1S95. Venezuela was now under the aio tatorship of a shrewd and unscrupulous adventurer named Castro, who, secure, as he believed, In tho protection of the United states under the Monroe doctrine. was cheerfully defying half of Europe Vencsuelan citixena owed large sums of money to Germany, England and Italy Collection of these debts proved difficult. Castro Intimated that Europe might come and get the money if it wanted to. Says Herman Hagerdorn in Boys' Lite. Germany, always on the alert for an opportunity to gain a foothold In South America, now approached the government of England and of Italy with a Tlew of ef fectlng Joint intervention to protect the interests of their citliena in Veneiuela Both nations agreed to co-operate, and all sent gunboats to blockade the coast. Castro protested vociferously to tha United States. John Hay, secretary of state, answered that the Monroe doctrine did not mean that the United States would preserve any South American nation from the consequences of Its own financial in discretions. The so-called "pacific blockade" con tlnued for a year. Numerous neutral ves sels were sunk. Hay lodged an emphatic protest and urged arbitration. The al lied nations refused, and on December 8, 1902, England and Germany broke off dip lomatlo relations with Venezuela, Intimat ing that the next move would be the bombardment of Venezuelan towns and the occupation of Venezuelan territory. At this point President Roosevelt took charge of the negotiations. He saw that in the invasion of a weak debtor state by a naval or military expedition lay a threat against the Monroe doctrine. He ad vised the nations to come to an under standing. England and Italy expressei their willingness to do bo, but Germany refused, declaring that any occupation of territory would be only "temporary. Roosevelt, having notions of his own about the probability of Germany's relin quishment of any territory on which she had once planted her flag, summoned to the white house Dr. von -Holleben, the tx man amDassaaor.

Unless Germany consented to arbitrate her Venezuelan claims he would order Dewey at noon ten days later, to proceed to the Venezuelan coast and prevent, by force of arms. If necessary the landing of a German expedition. ' A week later Von Holleben called again on the president. Ha talked on various matters. The on matter, however, .that he did not touch on at ail was Venezuela. But when he rose to go, Roosevelt asked him bluntly what answer he had receive, from hia government. Von HoUben was light-hearted about the matter. "You did not expect me to tak your statement seriously T" he remarked. His government, he said, had not communicated with him. The president snapped his teeth to gether. "Very good," ha said. "I shall instruct Admiral Dewey not in tnree aays but Id two." The ambassador- was thunderstruck. Hit whole manner changed. He .new at last that ha had made the most fatal mistake a dtploroat can make he had miscalculated the Intention of his opponent. He protested that the kaiser could not give In. "Do you realize." he cried in extreme agitation, "that this means war?" "It means war. answered rtooseven. If Germany tries to land troops in Vene zuela.

For F.conoulc Re-voaatracttoa. (Chicago Daily News.) Congress can find various useful hints and reminders in tho report that has been Issued by the federal department of com merce on the problems of economic re construction" that will face the world after the signing of peace treaties. The report emphasizes the fact that the United Mates lags behind other nations In this vital matter of preparedness for economic reconstruction after the war. Certain departments and bureaus have done valuable preliminary work, but the report recognizes that "the time is now ripe for more centralized, concert effort." In Ihe main, what lhe"Eurvpenn nations are planning to do In the economic sphere after the war la summed up In the report as follows. They are all reor-tranizlng and Improving their respective facilities for foreign trade, providing lor control and supervision of the use of their natural resources and arranging for state aid to private or seml-publlc enterprises. Now, as the report points out, some of the steps proposed In Kurope may be unnecessary or Impossible ' In the United Slates. Government Interference with trado and commerce, or government participation In Industrial activities. Is not popular with Americans. Still, the United States cannot Ignore the tendencies In other countries and cannot assume that during the difficult period of transition from war to peace conditions American trade and commerce, at home and abroad, wllltake cara of themselves. 11 eaidea. there are things to be done along lines of economy snd cflciency that Involve no asa i n Civilian and Military WlfAA SSttSn WV ,vV ALFRED DF.CKER & COHN, Makers In Canadi, SOCIETY BRAND CLOTHES, Limited CHICAGO NBVV YORK MONTHIAJL STYLE HEADQUARTERS Socifly Siranii (L'(otlta Whe -"The Store Ahead" MAYER BROS.
