TOO MUST REBUELDSCHOOL TEAM But One Veteran Remains for Next Year's Struggles. SECOND STRING .MEN PREPARED Far from Oloonir View of Situation Taken by Fun When Remit ot Flnnl Gnme Thin Year la Considered. While the foot ball season just con eluded cannot be tormed the most suc cessful foot ball season in the history of the Omaha High school, the athletic en thusiasts at the school on the hill are far from gloomy because of the fitting culmination on Thanksgiving day, when North Platte was defeated so decisively. Omaha won the championship of the state so conclusively that the western squads who are so sanguine of superiority over Omaha, have crawled back Into the brush and are not anxious to play the high school. Next year Omaha faces a serious situa tion. Even first string man but one graduates from the school this year. Harte, the husky halfback, is tho only man on the squad who will resume his studies at the high school next fall. A one-man nucleus Is a serious proposition for any coach to buck against, and Tommle Mills Is looking ahead to next year with a deal of anxiety In his eyes. Harte will of course be captain of next year's squad. Prepares for Next Yenr. But Mills this year foresaw thts-predlca-ment and coached his second .team ofth scrubs, but two of whom graduate. That means that there will be nine men from the second squad who have had consid erable experience. The eleventh man will be Schlmmerhom, who played center in the game with Nebraska City, but did not play In any of the later games. The second team has been coached al most with as much care as the first ana many ot Its members have substi tuted In the regular games. Wlthey at end for the second team, Is a whirlwind, although a little light. Beard at center, Is almost as strong as Moser, while Heustls at halfback had learned to take the place of Platx until ho Is al mostas speedy as the Dutchman, and with more practice and experience may become as good a player. The quarter back position will admittedly be weak, un less a new aspirant appears In the flow of new students next year. The eleven men who have the best chances to secure positions on next year's squad are: Harte. Wlthey. Kimball. Rule, Melcher, Beard, Bradley, Walker.. .Neviiie, Meuetls, Hervey, Nichols and Schlmmerhom, PREP STUDENTS AT OMAHA UNI PLAY BASKET BALL Preparatory students ot tho University or umana nave organized a basket ball team composed of the following members: Arend Drew, right guard; Melvin Bea cons, left guard; James Westertteld, right forward; John Drexef. left forward; and Hughes as center.

Joseph Tablsca' has been retained to coach the preps. Arenl Drew has been elected captain of the team and Melvin Beacons, manager.

It Is probably a boquet from some ad mirer. Tho Lary's Engravers have signed up a, new man by the name of Thlel. Ho Is an old-timer, formerly bowling In Iowa's metropolis. Joe Bergera eyes are getting Poor. He has been wearing glasses around the alleys lately. He says they help him to see tne pins. Since taking three straight from the leaders last week, Midget Dudley wants to enter his Larys Engravers In the mid west tournament. The captains of the bowling teams en tered in tho midwest tournament have received tho schedule for the big event. which shows 102 flvo-man teams entered from fifteen cities outside ot St. Louis. The St. Louis bowlers themselves have entered seventy-two teams. The Polarine Auto Oil team strength ened its lineup last week with the addi tion of Haarmanh. lie started out well In his first series.

Captain Green of the El Faxos Is grow ng a mustache so as to make himself oak like an old timer. All he has to do now Is. to paint a little background for It. Bill Weber has been rolling 200 scores ever since he got that plug put In his ball. He still manages to make It take about threo breaks before reaching the pins. Bill lime Is the Mary Garden of Omaha bowlers. In fact BUI pays more atten tion to pulling off fancy dancing during the game than be does to getting tho pins. North Platte, Neb., and Pender, nod., bowlers are anxious to secure matches with some strong Omaha teams. They have a good set of alleys In each of these burgs. This morning on the Morrison alleys. the postponed games between the X-Raya ana .Frank's colts, tne Micicey umsons and the Pete Lochs, will be rolled off at 11 o'clock.

Poor Kits, he rolled 671 in a not game on the Metropolitan alleys Wednesday right and didn't even win a cent. One ot these games was 243, and even at that he was stuck for the games. It Is about time the Gate City league Is getting away from that 165 average rule they have, causing the quality of bowl ing In this league to become lower In stead ot higher, as It should be. Take a look at the averages of the players on the Mickey Oibion team. A condition prevails, probably heretofore unknown In bowling history. Every man on the team has an average ot 163. Don Amsden says that he will take them all on at any game. His latest game la Cherry Valley. He makes his own rules. Recently he took Pat Angles berg to a cleaning at this game.

In a series of six games be only managed to roll 1.012, an average ot 168. McCabe leaves the allev evcrv nlrht with medals pinned on him.

You con always tell when Don goes good without looking at tne score sneet Ho always orders pop wnen tilings aro breaking right ror htm, Joe Dober says that he has the gum scraped from the soles of his shoes and Is now going nicely. Not long ago some one plastered the soles of his shoes with chewing gum to keep him from leading the Commercial league. Joe says this Is the reason he rolled below 600 that night All railroads ran excursions to accom modate the crowds attending the match between the Storz Triumphs and Lary's Engravers last week. It seems as though the entire bowling population of the country la pulling against tho brew ers. At least this fs what Joo Dober says. Fitzy Flgenschuh says that he Is ready to bet any amount with anyone who says that he can't roll 1S6 or better, before or after breakfast He says you won't havo to hunt him up, either, as he sleeps on the alleys. He Is anxious to hear from Bill Weber, Learn and a few others who say ho has a yellow streak. Another bowler has been barred from shooting In the Gate City league. This time it was Plympton, who was signed up by Joe Dober tor the Storz Triumphs team. The league rule Is that no bowlor with an average better than 165 can bowl in the Gate City league. Plympton Is seventeen points better than this average. Midwest tournament officials are dis appointed on account ot the failure of tne tat l'aul bowlers to enter a team this year, St. Paul has always had a fast bunch In the lineup and one season thrv won first money.
