Opinion seems to be general that the action of the Ardsley Club in providing a lawn tennla profes sional for Its members Is a step In the right direction which should be followed by the other clubs. In no other game Is the teaching end neglected as It Is here. All other sports have professional Instruc tors or coaches, themselves taught by pro fessionals, and new players are coming up all the time. In tennis, horn-ever, players have to teach themaelvea, except on oc casions where some youngster shows re markable aptitude for the game, and then the experts unbend and do a little coach ing. With the engagement of teachers of the game the experts will have to look to their laurels, and will not have their own way In most of the tournaments throughout the country 'as they have In the past. The complaint has been general among clubs that ther are no new playera of ability coming up to take the places of those who retire, and that for many years one set of men have been called upon to defend the cups here from foreigners, and gp to the other side, or even to Australia, to repre sent America. Nearly all of the ranking players are In business, and cannot al ways find the time to practice as they should, and then when their services are necessary, they have to devote more time than they can spare to getting Into con dition, and then comes the cry that no youngsters are coming up tp take their place. If other clubs follow the example of Ardsley, there will soon be a new crop of tennis players who will give the older men a strong argument, and It will be only a question of a year or two when there will be dozens of promising players where there is one today. Approval of this plan was given today by many tennis players, who have made good players out of themselves by watch ing some of the-cracks play, studying tho way the different strokes are made, and then trying to use them, but they say the men who have the advantage pf having an Instructor to give them a few suggestions, plus what they pick up from watching the cracks, ought to make very good playera. A champion of a number of years said: "It would be a great help to tho men be ginning In the game, as it would give them a good start, which counts a great deal, and. Instead of falling air over the court, it would give them an Idea how to handle the racquet and move about the court, and with this good fcur.datlon a rapid move ment would certainly follow. If all the other clubs would adopt tho same plan- It would be a great thing." Another player of many years, who thinks that the Idea of having an In structor would be a great help, said: "An Instructor Is all right, but there ' are a number of men who would not want to give up their strokes and start to study those of the teacher. The Instructor would help a lot In the line of giving suggestions, but In trying to teach his men to use his way of playing would not suit a number of men, but an Instructor wpuld help, a beginner a great deal." . . "A man can make a good player out of himself, if he has an instructor to look after him, taking his suggestions and watching the cracks play; and, putting all together, it would certainly be' a great help. If all clubs had tennis Instructors it would be a great aid to beginners," said unuther ex-chaniplon. Bigger. Better, tiaing in ' Tha business.

TROPHY TO STAY IN AMERICA Many Owners Have Tried ' to Take This Prise Across the Pond. NEW YORK, May 15.-One of the notable automobile prize trophies of the world Has found a resting place in New York. It never left the United States, however, as the American car was always too swift for Its foreign competitors. The trophy in question is that presented by Sir Thomas R. Dewar, former -mem ber of the British Parliament and high sheriff of London, who Is well known throughout the world as a man who takes a ken Interest In all departments of manly sports. . . 8ir Thomas Dewar was a visitor to the Florida beach In 1905 and In that year he gave a J,ooo trophy, to be known as the Sir Thomas Dewar trophy, as a mile In ternational prise, open to all cars of any country or manufacture, provided they should come within the then heavyweight limitation of 2,204 pounds. The. first con test for the trophy was held on the fa mous Ormond-Daytona beach, now known as the Daytona beach, Florida. ' That year England sent over .Arthur Macdonald, a famous speed driver, with a ninety horsepower Napier, to capture the trophy, but he had to compete against such notable drivers as H. L, Bowden of Boston. E. Russell Thomas, the New York ex-banker, with his ninety-five horsepower Mercedes; Paul Sartort, with fe ninety horsepower Flat; H. W. Fletcher, with an eighty horsepower De Dietrich, and the fa mous Louis R. Ross of Boston, who drove a little Stanley torpedo-shaped steamer a mile In 0:32. defeating all the big gasoline-powered cars. Sir Thomas dubbed the Stanley steamer, the "Tea Kettle," be cause of Its funnel on the top of a low bullt torpedo-shaped body, through which the steam came In a great cloud. The next yeur England sent over Wal ter Clifford-Earp, with an eighty horse power Napier, and again America tight ened' Its hold on the trophy when Fred Marriott drove another Stanley steamer In the world's record time of 0:28H, which has never been approached since. Chevro let, with a 3o horsepower Darracq, came the nearest to Marriott In 0:30H. and a few minutes later Victor Demogeot, with the" 200 horsepower Darracq, drove a world's record for two miles In 0 MS- Owing to the reluctance of the Internal combustion engine manufacturers to enter cars against what were termed "freak racing machines." the cup was not com peted for In 1907 and 1908. The board of trustees at last received a letter from the Stanley Motor Carriage company relinquishing Its claim to the trophy; so It was decided that, as the rules have been changed materially alnce the cup was donated. It should be put up last winter In Florida and become the ab solute property of the winner. The big Bens racer which Hemery drove Into sec ond place at Savannah for the - grand prise gold cup, and which was only one minute behind the winner In the 400-mlle race, was sent to the Daytona beach by the Bens company, it being entered by Hugh M-lrt t'" famous Australian sportsn u:i, .. r.cu.Uiaiod David L. Bruce-Brown, the young New York mil lionaire amateur, to drive it. Bruce Brown easily captured the prise In 6:33. COlCll AND OLSON IN OMAHA Champion Will Meet the Cowboy at the Auditorium. OLSON HAS THROWN BEELL He Rearnn by Dswslas a Broncho Tnrka Are Still After the Seals of the Iowa World Champion. Frank Ootch will wrestle Charley Olson st the Auditorium the night of May 14, and that may be the last time Omaha fans will see the world's champion In action, at least until he returns from Melbourne, Australia, where he is to meet George H.ickenschmldt next January, for Ootch talks of retiring after that. This man Olson Is as big as Ootch and he ought to make the champion work a little. He has thrown Fred Beell, who 1 rated on a par with Farmer Burns, and next to Ootch. Olson Is young, strong and active. He waa a cowboy in his younger days and. In fact, until very recently. He came by wrestling accidentally. Tusseling with a broncho one day, his pals observed a powerful exhibition of strength and told him he ought to be a wrestler. He hsd the mustang In a corral and was trying to saddle him. It was In tho course of this process that he threw Mr. Mustang to the ground. But he will have hold of a tougher propo sition than this broncho In Gotch. Olson is one of the men who keeps In good trim. Unlike John PerrelH, who lost easily ti Gotch a few weeks ago at the ' Audi torium, Olson has a pride In his work. He believes that some day he will be the successor rf Ootch as world's champion. Manager Gillan of the Auditorium Is making plans for high class preliminaries for this match. He may be able to Induce John Holden to meet Oscar Wasem. Both these men are good, Wasem being a higher grade professional and of longer experi ence, but Holden thinks he can throw Wasem, and has not thus far consented to meet him. Wasem Is willing to make any sort of wager that he can beat Holden. Local fans hope Holden will agree to meet Wasem and settle the old score. It is also probable that two big police men will go on In the preliminaries, and maybe Farmer Burns' son. Raymond, and a youth from Council Bluffs. This Is to be a big event In the line of wrestling. Tnrka Still After Gotch. Ootch Is still being pursued by the Turks. Since he beat Youetff Mahmout so" com pletely at Chicago, Antolne Plerrl, the im porter of Mahmout and every other big Turk for the last fifteen years, has been wild In his efforts to land a man to beat Gotch, and he comes now with a line of talk from Europe, via mall, that he has a man who can down the American. This Is what he said Mahmout would do, so the American public will wait until tha last fall to form Its Judgment. Upon leaving Chicago with Mahmout after Gotcb had quickly given Mahmout his quietus in the Dexter Park pavilion championship match, Manager Antolne Fierrl confined his remarks to thta one: "Wo are beaten fairly . and squarely. Mahmount met his master. But we return to Europe, and I expect to bring back a Turk bigger than Tusslff. the unbeaten, who will throw Ootch. I'll get Gotch yet If he dares enter the ring with the wrestler I bring over." In a letter recently from Manager Plerrl, who was at Strssburg on May 2, the wrest ling promoter gives the Information that an Asiatic fwsha has Hassan Morat in charge, and that Hassan has beaten every opponent who dared face him at catoh-as-catch-can, "Hassan Is big," writes Plerr!. "It will cost me a lot of money to get him away from the pasha for the trip to the United States, but Til get him and arrive with both Mahmout and Hassan some tlmeln September. Hansen Is afraid of no man In the world. Ootch looks to him no more than scores of men he has met In the lsst year. Mehmout, honestly., looks most a pygmy compared to Hassan. send over tl.OnO to post as a forfeit for Ootch to cover If he will meet Hassan." Ootch's representative today could not speak for the Iowa farmer. The latter, however, said recently that he Intended to retire next fall, after going to Australia to wrestle George Hackenschmldt at Mel bourne - a $12,600 plum, "win, lose or draw.' I addition Gotch Is to get three round-tnp tickets to Australts. al- Tll ECnow your own State Everybody knows that Nebraska is prosperous. Many people, how ever, even in Nebraska, do not know the source of its prosperity, except in their own neighborhood. Neither is it always understood in the cities, as to the cause of the general prosperity of the farmer, and the farmer may not be -familiar with what has been most essential in bringing about the prosperity of our towns and cities. In the coming articles, descriptive of the diferent counties of the stat the Commercial Club and their good roads campaign will receive attention; from what the state has been develop and the place it holds today in the industrial world; the advantages Nebraska offers to those who may come here; what the farmers of today have accomplished, and the possibilities for the farmer of the future; what the Btock-breeders and stock-feeders have developed and what they are trying to develop; what the dairy industry has to offer and how it is being received or rejected by the average farmer. The fruit industry has added to the pleasure and profit of the home; the com grower has learned and is learning, and his knowledge of improved methods are of immense value to himself and his neighbors. The railroads have done much for the state and have receivd much in return from the people. Thrify towns and cities of the state are growing, and how they are making progress will be told. The county schools, the school teacher and county superintendent of schools are e ntitled to notice and will be touched upon. All of these things will receive special attention in the future articles. No one can be well posted unless they know their own state.

BOSTON, Mass , May .-Wlth the mem ories of the six-length victory over Colum bia's eight In tha recent two-mile race on the Charles river. Harvard's sweep swing ers are bending to their work, hoping to overthrow Cornell's varsity in a like man ner. The defeat of the light blue and white showed Harvard undergraduates that they have'a boat every whit as powerful as the one that trounced Tale so severely on the Thames last summer. The work in the Columbia race demonstrated beyond a doubt that the crimson watermen are steel- nerved veterans and powerful athletea, The false start did not unnerve the Harvard craft, and when the nervous Mornlngsiders paddled back to the starting line the Cam bridge men awaited the pistol shot with supreme Indifference. But It will be a different proposition on May 31, when Coach Wray's men Journey up to Ithaca for a two-mile race on Lake Cayuga with Cornell. Coach Courtney Is Issuing the usual fine line of "bear stories" from the Cornell camp, but Har vard la not to be caught napping and will enter the contest keyed to the highest pitch. Last year the crimson watermen ran away from the Ithacans In a two-mile race on the Charles, and Coach Wray Is extremely anxious to repeat. As for Courtney, he Is laying low, doling out tales of hard luck, yet withal determined to score a victory over ths crimson eight with his red and white. Harvard is preparing for the race In earnest. After having rested the week fol lowing the Columbia contest, the oarsmen resumed practice and hard and prolonged work has characterised every drill. The varsity is rowing with the same smooth recovery and powerful leg drive that waa shown in the Columbia race and Is rarsdly rounding Into excellent form. This year the crew appears to be rowing with a shorter and snappier stroke than It did in 1908. It Is a question whether It Is safe to follow this apparent policy of developing a two-mile stroke for preliminary contests when the Tale race, the big event of the season, is four miles. Wray la confident, however, that he has a versatile boat and that no evil results will occur from pre paring his men so particularly for the early season short -distance rows. In any event It will be a row erf ul crew that will face the Oornelllana on May a and the race bids fair to go down In college athletic annals as ones of the best that has been contested between the tw.i universities. ELECTRICAL SHOW FIXTURE ONE JUST CLOSED. PAYS OUT WELL Last Day's Attendance Blearest of the Season ' and All ' Hands .Well Pleased with Experience Gained. "The -Omaha electric! show is a fixed annual event." said Mnnager Gillan of the exposition and the Auditorium Saturday night -when he closed tip' shop, kfter count ing what proved to be the largest number of paid admission tfcKVts taken "In during any single day of theVhow. Saturday was the tenth and last da. 1 ' 'The Electrical Exposition company la now Incorporated," he went on. "and we hope to make the enterprise bigger and better- every year. We are well pleased with its success and with the treatment we have received frvtm both public and press, especially with what The Bee has done for us." ' go cress from Money End. According to Mr. Slllart, the show breaks even financially this time, and with a lot of valuable equipment, lights and decora tions paid for. He says that next year entertainment of a sensational and spec tacular character will be provided along with the more refined and high grnde at tractions, such as they furnished In the way of music this year. The women will be given more attention In the future, ac cording to the plans, a complete electric kitchen and dining roTn being contem plated among other things. City Electrician , Waldemar Mlchaelsen, who has been a constant worker, said last night: "We are eapecUUy gratified on ac count of the attention he show and Omaha are getting from the papers and magazines, especially the big eastern electrical pub lics ttons. The Electrical World, for In stance, devotes five pages of pictures and written matter to the show and the city gets advertised from It. Dr. MUlener's triumph will make It one of the most widely advertised shows ever held." "Exhibitors are more than satisfied with the success from a sales standpoint," de clared I. B. Zlmman, contract agent for the Electric Light company and one of the men who made the show a reality. "The industrial power booth showed In miniature to Commissioner Guild and other Commercial club men 'what the proposed Indu trial exposition would be like." Before leaving for Cincinnati Saturday night Miss Blanche Mehaffey, who sang twice dally throughout the show, remarked, "I like Omaha and the electrical show. They're all right." Everybody- Mked It. And everybody else liked the big shpw. In fact, a certain quartet of small but highly curious boys liked It so much that they broke Into the basement of the Audi torium a day or so before the last day and held a regular revel of Invest lgntlon until they were caught In the act of getting too familiar with aome of ths appliances. So, with due credit going to tho many boosters, large and small, everyone con nected wtih the ahow Is well satisfied with Its outcome for Itsel and the city and willing to go Into the project during coming years, the gigantic event came to a close Saturday night, amid the nnlsy and Joyous t' otlni of electric horns, the ringing of bells and the applause of thousands of people who had attended.

AMATEUR NIGHT AT ORPHEUM t'saal Ceremonies Attend the Closing of the Season at the Vaude ville Honse. Various snd sundry amateurs went on at the close of the regular bill at the Orpheum last night and made determined efforts to make good In aplte of equal determination on the part of the audience that they should not. The audience enjoyed Itself hugely, but It Is doubtful If all the per formers did. However, the novices In the amusement world were not really cruelly treated and a few "got away with It." Notably so Arthur Weatherby and H. E. Howland, who at other times shift scenery on the stage. Weatherby will be remem bered as tha cupbearer in the Julius Caeaar travesty of a recent bill.. The last curtain of the evening was ths closing one of the season. After a delightful banquet st the Rome at which about sixty lawyers and other men of prominence were present, the 1909 class of the law department of v the Creighton university were given diplomas snd entered upon the practice of that pro fession. At the close of the feast President Eugene A. Magevney of ' the University offered a prayer and conferred the de grees. Chief Justice Reese of Nebraska administrated the oath. Amos E. Henely, of the graduating clans delivered the valedictory, taking for his subject, "The Lawyer." His talk waa full of spirit and showed very Impre'sslngly the appreciation felt by his classmates of the responsibility of the profession and of work done by the faculty members In pre paring them for that work. Mr. Henely was the honor man of the class and was given L. L. B. cum laude. Hon . Horace E. Deemer, of the supreme court of the State of Iowa, delivered the principal address of the evening, choosing for his subject "The Social Cosmos." He showed very clearly the advances con stantly being made in the workings of the laws and lawyers. He set forth In a very forcible manner the responsibility the young men of the graduating class are tak ing and the duties they will be called upon to perform. He closed his talk by welcom ing them into the profession. Judge Duncan M. Vinsonhalrr acted as toastmaster. Those who receiveJ i iplo ,us were: Harry Martin Buddha, Ernest ' Thomas Urunden, Amos Edward Henely, Harland Lester Mossman, Robert Emmet McNalty, William Peter Rooney, Lewis John Homers. Among those who sat at the table were Chief Justice Reese of the Nebraska su preme court, with Associate Justices Let ton, Root, Fawcett, Dean and Barnes. Judge Rose was unable to attend on ac count of illness. Clerk of the Supreme Court Lindsay was also present, and Judge Troup of the Douglas county district bench. Justice Deemer referred to the fact that he and Judge Troup were law stud ents together, ' back In the misty past. "We studied law eight months," said Jus tice Deemer, "and they told us we were lawyers." Music May Mnsle Festival at the lloyil. Yesterday "afternoon " the Minneapolis Symphony orchestra contributed a highly attractive program assisted by Miss Esther May Plumb, contralto and Mr. Czerwonky, violinist. ..,..'.',.' ,1 Mr. Oberhoffer grows more and more Im pressive, with each number he- presents, and his work displays much careful, thor ough rehearsal with a body of skillful musicians, who have given themselves to the task of weaving beautiful pictures in tone from a pattern well laid out and pre pared for them by the Interpretative genius of their conductor. Mr. Oberhoffer has daily rehearsals with the orchestra at home, and more funds are being added every year to build up the organization, for the people of Minneapolis are wide awake to their opportunities and are proud to speak of "Our Orchestra." Mr. Oberhoffer stated last night that the orchestra had In sight a quarter of a mil lion dollars for Its next five years woik. One of the most Interesting features of the series of concerts has been the play ing of Mr. Czerwonky. This violinist has simply captured the audiences with his artistry and his exceptional talent. It would seem that In him Mr. Oberhoffer has found a treasure. t , ; Miss Esther Miy Plumb revealed the fnct that she has a beautiful contralto voice hidden about her somewhere. She sings Intelligence, and if she would discontinue with a good denl of feeling, and mttch the "closing," or, as some call It, "cover ing," of her middle and lower tones she would be more valuable to herself, her nudlence, and her manages. It seems to be a mania with almost all American con traltos to color all tones dark, forgrettlng that a bright contralto voice Is always a rleh possession. It Is hoped that some dny MIbs Plumb will find this rut, for she has possibilities that are self-evident. In the evening the Oratorio society was heard In a presentation of the "Messiah." by George Frederick Handel, accompanied by the orchestra, under Mr. Ira D. Pcnnl mun. The solo jtrts were taken by Miss Ixiulse Ormsby, Miss Esther May Plumb, Mr. Lester Bartli tt Jones and Mr. Middle ton. Mr. Mlddleton carried off the honors of the evening. Ills vice, which is a rich "basso cahtante," Is admirably suited to the music of the "Mesnlah." He sang with refinement, delineation, elegance of style and uniform Splendor of tone. His entire absence of msnperlm and his authority of delivery were refr-jshlng. rim ECHOES OF THE ANTE-ROOM Omaha Shrlnera Will Go to Imperial Council at Louisville In Spe-' . rial Train.
