Santa Claus Sure Was Pretty Good to O. B. B. This Season HOLLAND REMAINS WITH THEWESTERM St. Joseph Uagnate and Frank Isbell Try to Buy K. C. Club, but Deal Falls Through. ALL UMPIRES ARE GIVEN GATE Jack Holland will not leave the Western league to take up the business management of the Kan as C ty American association, aa was nr.u. need at St. Joseph a week ago. llol'ai:d h.s decided to stick to hla (?t. Joseph int.-rcts. And with the announcement that 11 llnnd will remain at St. Joseph comes i,n interesting yarn. Holland and Frank label! of the Dos Moines club had fixed up a plan to buy the Kansas City franchise from Georg-j Tebeau. It was figured that Tebeau would willingly sell because Oeorge Is not as popular aa he might be among the Kay See fan and fanettea. L. c. Burnea of St. Joseph, said to be quite wealthy, was Interested and a number of other St. Joseph capitaliftts signed up to take stock. Also Holland and Isbell began plans to relieve themselves of their holdings in the Western league.. But the deal flunked two ways. Tebeau wouldn't sell at the price Holland an Isbell thought hla franchise was worth. Also Holland and Isbell couldn't find anybody who wanted to fink any co.n In the Western, especially at St. Joseph and Des Moines. Thus It Is Holland will remain at St. Joseph. Alt Imps Are Fired. One of the complaints made against the administration of Tlpperary TIP O'Neill was the brand of umpires Tip persisted In wishing on the suffering Western league fans. Now Mr. O'Ntiii cornea forth and fires ail the umpireE who were with the loop at the close of the year. It will be up to the new president, Frank Zehrung, to select the chapj who will work next year In thla circuit and may he have better luck, or better judgment, than did his predecessor. Mr. Zehrung, however, will probably n.'.o pretty nearly aa tough a job with his umpires as did Prexle Tip. Zehruin, being new to the game, will very probably ask the advice of various club owners when making choices and one vt two of the said club owners are likely to take advantage of the new man If they can. At that, Zehrung can't do much worse than O'Neill did along this line. Drummers Sinn Athlete, St. Joseph haa signed a new first baseman. He answers to the name of Claude Jourdon and halls from the North Carolina league. Denny Sullivan, J -i' town's new manager, dug up the youth and says he will be a find. Jourdon hit .367, which la some average In any old league, and fielded .997 in the southland loop laat year. Jourdon is now playing In the Winter league at New Orleans. Denny Sullivan is . also battling In the winter loop. . Two After Tope tut Job. Two names are receiving frequent mention for the managerial position at Topeka which was left vacant by the jump er James Jackson, firebrand, from jiiwiown to wicnua. iee Mannenm, with Omaha last rear, and Tom Downey are the two. Both Tannehlll and Downey are veteran ball players and both capable of playing pretty good class A ball despite their years. Both are foxy players, know the inside game from A to Izard - and probably would prove very capable magnates. Jimmy Viox Makes Monkey Out of Flip Cuban Outfielder Hans Wagner haa a fine sense of humor and can tell a good story when ha opens up. He tells this one of an Incident In an 'exhibition game which the Pirates played w Ittr the Cuban ball team at Long Branch, N. J.: "The Cuban player In left field was fresh in the way he talked to some of us, and he made Viox particularly sore. The 'time came In the game when Viox had a chance to show him ' up, and he did. Jimmy hit a long home run in the bushes In left field, and this Cuban was so. busy trying to find the ball he couldn't see what was going on. . "Viox went around the bases once and then while this Cuban was still scratching in the weeds Jimmy started on around ' the second time. The Cuban came up out ' of the bushes Just about the time Jimmy got past second base on his second time around. He threw the ball on a line to ' home plate and then tore madly In toward ' the diamond. The Cuban catcher was In ' cn 'the Joke and he took the ball and ' finned it on Jimmy ten feet from the late. "Then the umpire helped out by calling Jimmy safe. The way that Cuban left fielder did rant and explode Spanish cuas words at us big leaguers and the umpire for the rest of the game was funny, for 'no one put him wise an just let him go on making a fool of himself." Mike Donovan One : Pug Who Knew When - to Quit the Game To know when to quit when quitting is good Js a species of wisdom vouchsafed to few fighting men. One of the most illustrious of the champions to retire from the ring undefeated was Mike Donovan-good old "professor Mike," the grand old , man of the squared circle. Tha "professor" held the middleweight title from 1874 to lSsj. when he voluntarily resigned hia honors and be;: me boxing Instructor of the New York Athletic dub. a '.Job he held until he was pensioned last year. Dempsey's defeat at the hands of the old-tlroer for Donovan really had the shade, although it was railed a draw-was perhaps the bitterest pill the Irish . battler ever had to swallow. Donovan waa the only middleweight champion in the annals of pugilism to retire undefeated, with the exception of Jack Randall, the original 'Nonpareil." who fought nearly a century ago and was never licked. Bob Fitsslmmons went into the heavyweight class and fought once too often. Jimmy Barry, the old bantam thara- : plon, went through his career without taking a beating. A "For Fate"- ad will turn second-hand furniture into cash. Charley Peters Is Willing to Tackle Any and All of 'Em Charley Iters, the Fapilllon ladwho defeated Ous Kuvaros last Tuesday night in Jig time, announces that he is willing to enter the ring with any wrestler who hss wrestled Joe Stecher or wants to wrestle Stecher. Peters' mannger declares that lYt--rs dors not claim to he able to best Stecher, and even admits Stecher's superiority, but he asserts that Peter can defeat anybody Steelier can defeat anybody Stecher has throw n up to date and offers to place hla money that way. Strangler Lewis, Hussane. Aberg and nil the rest are Invited to speak up. BOWLERS KEEP ON THROUGHHOLIDAYS Down-and-Out Tourneys, Mixed Doubles and Merry-Go-Rounds Fill the. Time. SOME ; LIVELY COMPETITION The holiday rush didn t stop the bowlers and much activity wss displayed around the local runways. Down and out tournaments, mixed doubles, merry-go-rounds and prize corttests featured the week's play. On the Farnam Alleys, the laraest merry-go-round tournament ever staged In the city canio to an end with tlU..riO in the pot. Some lively competition wan Indulged In and scores were high. Sciple and Shields won first money with 12M; Yousem and Rosenberg second with 1281; Sciple and Shields third with 1270; and Bnrtholemew and Schoeman fourth with 12(17. , The Huntington Alley merry-go-round drew a good patronage. Haurer and Conrad won first place with 12S2. Maurer and Huntington second with 124S. J. Jarosh and Wartchow third with 1236. J. Jarosh and Wartchow fourth with 1223. In the B class Iluntlnclon merry-go-round I Norgaard and Kleney were flrat with 1106. Stlne and Tfelffer second with 1093, L, Norgaard and Kleney third with 1C89, L. Norgaard and K. Norgaard fourth with 1074. Prise f'onteat Held. On the Morrison alleys Joe Berger's Christmas prise contest developed Into a series of lively contests. Zach Chambers' 725 total drew first prize, Jedlicka waa second with 700, Wiley third with 698, Fits fourth with 6S9 and Hayes fifth with 679. The women's turkey shoot on the Huntington alleys was won by Miss Sophia Rauber with a 679 total, including a 243 single game. The Metropolitan Christmas tree tournament was a huge success. Santa Claus McCabe passed out prizes to Carl Younger and Art Falconer, who hung up high scores. Merry.rio-R.ound. On the Brunswick alleys a holiday merry-go-round Is in progress. Fitzgerald and Frikcher are high with 1,230. The pot has ' already assumed large proportions. It lasts until January 2. Other special holiday events will be staged during the remaining holiday season. Dad Huntington will stage a big open house event New Year's eve. Special events will be rolled by both the men and Women and several special prises will be put up. To make it good Dad has hired a five-piece orchestra to sweeten the occasion. ' Bow Ins; Note. That Luxus-Mets match Thursday night was one of the best played this season. Only one pin separated the totals and the games were close. The Metx won the first by seven pins. The I,uxus won the second with a two-pin lead and the third by six pins. The Omaha league race continues to be a good one. Four teams are bunched for the lead. The Wroth's Cafe and Stors are tied for first and the Mets and Luxus are just one game behind. Ted Neale registered 'an even 200 game without a double in the Booster league, Tuesday night. This la a feat not ottun pulled off. Herb Garlow is handing out a dollar cash prize to the high score rolled on his drives each day. To show their appreciation for the treatment accorded them the Women's league presented Dad Huntington with a handsome cut glasses vase, of con me. Mrs. Huntington has claimed It. Dad is sure getting popular in his old uge. The Standard Oil league has discontinued activities. They were a live bunch, but lacked organization and leadership. The night rolling hour also waa not aa popular as the matinee hour they rolled In the last four years. Just as Beau Brummel Hageman was becoming a good bowler the Standard Oil league quit business. He will probably join the Gasleague. Dad Huntington la waxing the floor of his establishment When that orchestra he hired for New Year's eve gets started the whole bunch, following the usual custom, will start gliding around. Another Union Pacific league has been organized and will roll on Tuesday nights on the Metropolitan alleys replacing the Standard OU league.

Germany Not ehosen. Scribe Calls Dauss ; Beau Brummel, and Makes George Sore George Dauss of the. Detroit Tigers has a reputation as a swell dresser. D&uaa blossoms out In the latest modes and usually looks as If he had Juat stepped out of a bandbox. Another feature about Dauss Is he likes to sleep late Into the morning. Hence when Dauss was with the St. Paul club some years ago he balked about the II o'clock rising rule laid down by Manager Mike Kelley. There was no csrspe. however, so Dauss had to comply. But it jarred his spirits considerably. One trip around the circuit waa en livened by the presence of a certain St. Paul base ball writer. This youth, in search of material, would send in feature stories about the habits and eaylng of the various Saints. He wrote a long article about Dauss and referred to him as the "Beau Brummel" of the team. A copy of the paper fell Into Dauss' hands. He came to the words "Beau Brummel" and paused. Glancing up he spied Josh Clarke In the distance. 'Hey, Joph, what does this mean, 'Beau Brummel?'" Clarke grinned. "Why, kid. that Is aa much as to say you're a lazy guy." It took the scribe twenty minutes to square himself with Dauss. Tyrus R. Cobb May Be Seen in Action On Local Ball Lot Omaha base ball fans may have an opportunity of seeing the great Tyrus Raymond Cohb and the heavy-slugging Ham Crawford and the vociferous Hugh Jennings In action at Rourke park next spring. Pa Rourke will start negotiations with Frank Navln next week to see If he can not get the Detroit Tigers scheduled for couple of exhibition games here be fore the season opens. The Tigers are coming as far north as Kansas City and Rourke may be able to induce Navln to bring bis squad Up here. . Rourke has already suggested the move to Navln and the Detroit head told him to remind him of it again after the major .league meetings. HOCKEY GAME STILL GOES GOOD IN CANADA MONTREAL, Que., Dec. 8.-It will probably be somewhat of a revelation to people in the United States to learn that professional hockey Is taken ao seriously in even these war times In Canada that the Canadian Athletic club of Montreal demanded IO.OuO for its hockey fran-ch'se in the National Hockey association of Canada, which contain six clubs.

Peggy Barth Pulls Joke on Shuster, but It Doesn't Work Out i The death of Peggy Barth. the young Brooklyn recruit, while playing winter ball In the Imperial Valley, haa recalled prank Peggy pulled off once upon a time that turned out' differently from what he and his fellow players had expected. It wss while Peggy wss with the Pasadena club of the Hotithern Cali fornia league. In which he made his start. nd Jack Shuater was the team angel and manager. This Is the way the story Is told by Henry Chandler, who was an umpire in the league: "Things had been breaking badly for Phuster and judging from Uie attendance the natives were unaware of the fact that their city was represented by a ball club. The players were rebellious, too, for Khuster could, without a doubt, collect more of their douch wichout provocation than any manager I ever met, and I have known some who were strong on Inflicting fines for this, that and the other thing. "The team was finishing a home stay and wfter the laat game of the series all were In the club house gathering odd and ends. Knter Shuster: 'Pile all those uniforms In the corner, boys. We open at Long Beach tomorrow and I want you fellows to show in style down there. I'll have them laundered and rushed down In time for the game.' . With that Shuster took his departure from the club house. As rne players began piling up their uniforms, Peggy Barth, who always was pulling off something, said: 'Let's run up a laundry bill on Shuster that will even up a little on those fines,' and he started the Idea by throwing shirt, socks, suit of underwear, etc., Into the pile of uniforms. The other players caught the Idea and every spare bit of wearing apparel waa piled in with the uniforms, and then the whole lot of tuff so arranged that Bhuster would not get wise If he should make an Inspection. Tha players left the club house speculating on what the manager would say when he got the laundry bill. "That night Bhuster decided to make his exit, and he made a good one, leaving Pasadena nothing but a franchise and a bunch of unpaid, hungry ball players. He took the uniforms, too, and with thern went all that had been plied In to run up a fancy laundry bill, while a d nen ball players left behind were not only broke, but without even as much as a clim.ie of socks. UWISY MUKNJNO; lKc:KM INDOOR GOLF COURSE HERE Phil Clark, Professional at Field Club, Will Open Indoor Links in Omaha Next Month. WILL HOLD ifXTCH CONTESTS llill Clark, professional at the Omaha Field club, will open an Indoor golt course at Fifteenth and Dodge a week from Monday. Omaha golf bugs who have been bemoaning the fact that they can't play all the year round have been clamoring for an Indoor course ever since the Idea was evolved and Clark has decided to give them one. He will maintain the Indoor affair for three months until the outdoor season opens once more. Three nets for driving "and the line and a nlpo or elghteen-nole putting course will be installed. The Indoor golf game Is said by expert golfers to be a big aid in keeping up one's form during the winter months. It also Is said to be almost aa enjoyable and entertaining as the outdoor game-except that the player does not get the exercise or the fresh air. Clark and hia assistant at the F.eld club, Stanley Davles, will give instructions and both say the Indoor method is a good way to learn how to play golf and is also more pleasant, as the duffer doe not have to chase a sliced ball Into a creek or down a railroad track. It Is (.'lark's plan to hold some In door match game and tournament to create an Interest In the game anion- the big golfing fraternity In Omaha. He plans some matches between player ot the various club and the like. Mike Hhearman, formerly an assistant of Clark's at the Field club and now pro fessional at a Sioux City club, will put in an indoor Course in Sioux City. He will open on New Year's day. Clark and Shearman have Just returned from Chicago, where they went to get Ideas for the Innovation. Eddie Mahan Palls for Old Golf Game Kddle Manau, me Harvard foot ball captain, haa forsaken the gridiron for the mid Iron. He' just llko the other top-calllicr athletes In double crossing the sport in whlcl) he shines the most and tackling golf. Mahan does not yet play a superb game with hi' set of clubs, but he's coming along, and the tender nursing process arranged by hi golfing friends at Harvard I beginning to show results. Mahan declares It Is much easier for him to find a hole In the line of a foot ball team than to find the hole in the putting green. That U one of the reasons why his score card at the end of every eighteen holes makes those 41 point that Harvard scored against Yale look Insignificant. If Mahan wanted to he could make eighteen holes in 200 without deviating from his present normal form. His driving Isn't so spectacular a might be expected from Mahan, for most of his punts In the season Juxt past went as far as the majority of his golf drives. Leo Klein is Home for the Holidays Leo Klein, the OJ-Kiha boy, who substituted on the Illinois eleven for the sensational Harold PogJe when that youth was Injured, la In Omaha for the holiday. Klein sustained sever Injuries to his arm and shoulder toward the latter part of the season and fear he will be unable to play base ball In the spring. Klein U -n of the best amateur pitcher in Omaha and eOorg Huff, the Illinois coach, expected great things of him until he was hurt playing foot ball.
