Till-: DIM MOINKS RI-GISTKR: TUESDAY MOT.XTXC.. APRIL 12. 1921. CADDOCK AND LEWIS READY FOR TITLE WRESTLE HERE TONIGHT 9 ' m. Mr IOWAN WILL STRIVE TO REGAIN HONORS Record Crowd Expected to See Match. nv SKC TAYIVOR. Karl Caddock, pride of Iowa, and Kd "Strangler" Lewis, cnampion heavyweight wrestler of the world, were ail ready last night for their finish match at the Coliseum thla evening when .the supremacy of the world will be decided. The champion arrived here Sun day morning accompanied by his manager, B. C. Sandow. Caddock came In yesterday from his home at Walnut, la., and was followed last night by his manager, Gene Melady of Omaha. Neb., and several other fans and newspaper men of the Nebraska metropolis. Edward W. Smith of Chicago, who will referee the title contest, ,nnd some of the leading heavyweights of the country and their managers are expected to arrive here early today from Chicago. Thousands of Fans Coming. Several thousand fans who already have made seat reservations will pour into the city by train, interurban and automobile today, for the largest crowd that ever saw an indoor wrestling match in the country outside of New York is the forecast. The promoter of the contest, Oscar Thorson, has changed the seating arrangements so that the Coliseum will hold more fans in advantageous seats that at any previous match. For this reason it is probable that none of the fans will be turned away as was the case at the Waldek Zbyszko-Caddock match here three years ago. It was announced that the Coliseum doors will be opened at 7 o'clock, the first preliminary will start promptly at 8:30 o'clock and that the events will be run off without delay. In the semiwindup, Jake Brissler, local heavyweight, who has been under the tutelage of Jess Reiraer for three years, will meet Jack Rogers, Canadian heavyweight, in a finish match. Thorson Prohibits Smoking. The same rules that have been in effect at all of the Thorson athletic shows will prevail tonight. No smoking will be permitted and cuards will be stationed throughout the building to see that the order is enforced. This rule is made necessary because of the large number of reservations for women. The tickets for the match will be on sale at the Coliseum box office loday so that purchasers may see their seats before buying if they wish. The cheaper seats have not been sold as yet and will go to the first in line at 10 o'clock today. Considering the fact that the match is for the world's champion ship and that Caddock is an over whelming favorite so far as sentt ment is concerned there has been ! very little betting on the contest, j Betting on matches always has been discouraged here and as a rule there has not been much gambling on the outcomes of the con tests staged In Des Moines. Work at Coliseum Finished. A corp if carpenters that worked all last week in arranging special seats in the Coliseum, completed its work vesterday and everything Is readv this morning for the big en counter. Chutes have been built at the entrance of the building in order to facilitate the handling of the crowd but -these will be torn nut. while the match Is 1n progress so that the building may be emptied quickly, when the contest is over. . "; ' , The managers of both men were confident last night of the ability nf their men to win. B. C. snnrlnw. in behalf of Lewis, exnressed his belief that the champion would wig without much trouble, and Gene Melady, representing Caddock. stated that every thing possible had been done to get the Iowan in fine shape and that he believed Caddock would return to his home tomorrow holding the world's title for the second time. ALEXA STIRLING BEING MISQUOTED Special to Th Rrff.fttr. NEW YORK, April, 11. It appears they are handing Misa Stirling over in England in the name line that they passed out to Walter Hagen. In going over to England, Hagen never stated that he would win the British open, yet the English papers quoted him as boasting that t would carry away the title. Hagen was made to say a lot of things over there, but the papers aTl denied them later. One silly Jhing that was even printed here wan In th report that he hud put hi arm a around the championship cup and rtnrkfri, "Oh, you buoy, I'm iroinr to taka you hack to America with m." Am a matter of fact Tlag-rn never aaw the cup. as It wan in the clubhouse at Peal and not displayed except to member itnd guest of tlie club. There la a hard and fa at rule over there that no "pro" may enter the club houae, so thla would seem to nail this mory. Now the atorlea are .beginning- to , crop up that little Mia Stirling haa been boaatlng that ahe wilt defeat Mies Leitch, but, of oourae, they are alt moonshine, RUTH'S FAME AND NAME GO ABROAD NEW YORK. April 11. "Babe" Ruth's fame has reached eternal Rome. The Italian clergy and educators, enthusiastic over Pope Benedict's suggestion to the KnlghU of Columbus that they undertake welfare and athletic work among the young men of Home and Italy, have sent numerous messages to Supreme Secretary William J. Mc-Glnley of the Knights of Columbus, urging the knights to commence work In Italy as quickly as possible. A letter Just received from a well known Italian educator asks that the Knights of Columbus enlist the services of "Babe Rutho" (Italian version of the swat king's name) for athletic work in Italy. They have visions of the "Babe" swatting home runs across the ancient Tiber. PLAY NO HIT GAME IN COBLENZ, GERMANY COBLENZ. April 11. The honor of developing a no-hit. no-run game fell to Coblenz yesterday at the opening of the season of the Army league, comprising teams of the American forces of occupation. Martin of Texas, pitching for the quartermaster's team, blanked the Eighth infantry combination, last year's champions. Not a sign of a bit was made off the Texan twlrler, and only one Eighth infantry batter got on, -reaching first on a pass. t Braves Ought to Surprise League u - V -at-- if-, WALTER HOLKE IN ACTION, DICK RUDOLPH WITH A CAP, AND, BELOW.

CHARLES PADDOCK'S FEAT ASTOUNDING Easterners Can't Believe Stop Watches. NEW YORK, April 1 1 .- -Officials of the A. A. U. are collecting evidence preparatory to passing on th new record for the 220-yard dash reported to have been established by Charles Paddock of the University of Southern California at Berkeley. If Paddock was not aided by wind, if the track was or proper measurement. and ! watches were in excellent condi "0"' hre s ,oubVthat, th,e f,iy sanctioned of- To say that eastern trackmen were surprised by Paddock's feat would be to put It mildly. They were astounded. There is a group who are always Inclined to discount California records, men who doubt. when a new achievement is turned in from the west coast, remarking that Pacific stop watches are geared to stop at 9 3-5 seconds. But Justice to an athlete who has already proved his great ness aoes not warrant talk ot this sort. Peat Almost Unbelievable. Paddock's best previous record for the furlong, :21 1-6, was made at the Harvard stadium last year. The new record, :20 4-6. means an improvement of about seven yards over the best Paddock had previously done. It means he would have beaten a runner such as Loren Murchison by eighteen yards over the distance. And when you think of any one beating Murchison by that margin over I ,e furlong you begin to grasp Just what Paddock is supposed to have done. The wires stated that Paddock ran 100 yards in :0 3-6 and then went out to step-the furlong In :21 flat. The California officials are said to have taken every possible precaution against a possible rejection of the mark by the Amateur Athletic union. Only One Irregularity. From this distance there appears to be but one possible irregularity In the conditions surrounding Paddock's feat. Some of the watches registered :21 flat and others :28 3-5. This indicates a difference of four yards In the times taken by some of the dockers as against that of the others a condition that does not inspire confidence. The officials are forwarding affidavits tot he A. A. U. office in this city regarding the conditions under which the Olympic champion made his record. The track was measured by surveyors, who worked with Walter Chrystie, the California coach, and found the distance to be exact. Additional affidavits are also on their wav east showing that Paddock did not start before the gun was fired and also that the wind that was blow ing did not materially aid the Olympic champion. it f anaocic accepts the invita-1 tion of the University of Pennsylvania to come east for the special sprint race or races at the Penn relays he will meet a bunch of sprint ers wortny ot nis mettle. BILLY BARTON COSTS STONEIIAM $43,000 CINCINNATI, April 11. Mose Ooldblatt, Cincinnati turfman and former owner of Billy Barton, is home from Havana. He won the Cuban derby, but had left, the Cuban sport center before the race. Ooldblatt said that he had his horse set for the race and did not have to stay to see him run. Charles A. Stoneham, president of the New York Giants, Is said bv Ooldblatt to have paid him $40,000 in cash and $5,000 additional for Billy Barton. First reports were to the effect that Stoneham paid $15,-000 for the horse. Thibuqtie Bov Yale Captain. NEW HAVEN, Conn.. April 11. C.

Tring into the lime- I ngni again a aiscussion tnat raged tsunia yearn bru ana tnat win BTanu revival in view of recent development in collegiate sport. His view on ajhletics is that any undergraduate who has established residence and is a legitamate candidate for a degree should be allowed to represent, his alma mater on the diamond, gridiron or track, even if he has competed for money. It seems undemocratic, to place a handicap upon the student whose limited finances make it necessary for him to earn a living by capitalizing his athletic ability. No student who is a correspondent for a newspaper Is barred from competition for a place on 'he editorial boards of the various college publications. Why should the athlete ' be discriminated against because his ability to earn money must be exercised in other i fields, asks Murfin. ED WATTE WILL CAPTAIN' SOONERS NORMAN. Okla.. Anrll 11.

ENGLISH FIGHTERS WERE GOOD SPORTS Pearce Gets Gully Out of Prison to Fight Him. BY Ali 8PIXK. It Is to laugh to hear the young sporting writers tell of how much better the, prize fighters of today are when compared to the fighters of the long ago. It Is very true that they are much better in some directions. In stalling and talking about big purses and telling where and when they are going to fight, in general conversation as to their individual ability, the fighters of today have the old fellows beaten many miles. In the olden days the old fighters fought at the drop of the bat and then talked of it later. This was especially true of the old Irish fighters, like Burke. Donnelly and Cooper, and the English fighters like Mace, Sayers.Cribb, Allen and Mitchell. You young fellows who are talking about what great fighters your champions of today are when compared to the old world champions must, when all is said, admit the old fellows had it on the present champions when It came to arranging a match and getting it over without a waste of words or a long drawn out battle in the newspapers for months and sometimes for years before the battle actually takes place. Stage Impromptu Bout. In England In the days when Tom Crlbb was champion, he had many a mill which came up impromptu, and in the English boxing shops there was often a fight pulled off not on the program. When Crlbb was at the very top of his pugilistic career a banquet was. given the champion by one of the swellest organizations in England and to which were invited all the great boxers of that time. As a result of the latter's presence there were frequent quarrels while the banquet was in progress. The one ugly row was between Tom Crlbb and Jack Carter, and this was Carter's fault. On account of his rough ways, Carter was barred from the spread, but on thla particular night he forced his way In. "So you've left off fighting." he roared at Crlbb. "Better aay that fighting haa left you off. niv lad. ills inrults kept on until at taat he atruck one of the men who waa trvlng to make him leave the room. Without any mote words, Crlbb Jumped up and aaked Hist a ring b formed. When this wae done he flew at Carter and gave him aa fine a beating aa a man ever got. Oibb Was Fine Kellow. Takn all in all, Tom Crlbb waa some rint fellow. Rlna lilalorlea a-1va hnnrfnute .f mfnrlm about his generosity and klndnesa to the poor and the weak. Hia specialty was ttu-asbing bullies, and It wasn't safe for any brute to heat a woman or child whan Tom Crlbb waa around. That's what strength la for. It aeema to me. Not ooh to take cere of yourself agalnat attack, but to protect thoae who can't protect I lie msel vea.

Got Opponent Out of Jail. .Tern Ward, while champion of England, went out on a sparring tour with Sampson, the "Birmingham Youth." Sampson was a likely lad and aa he Improved In skill he got tha Idea that he could whip the champion. "Lxiok here. Jem." he aald one day. "I'd like to challenge you for a regular match. What do you say?" "You're not good eno-ugh, my boy," Jem grinned. "Suppose va aea about that," aald Sampaon. The chaniprnn " waa willing and ten rounds were fought. Only the seconds, a referee and a few apectators were on hand. Sampson proved a good boy. but he waa no match for the clever Ward. "You were right. Jem." the Birmingham youth admitted at the flnlah. "I don't think I'm ready to challenge you vet a while." The most remsrkable msteh I ever heard of wis the first meeting In Eng land between T'earce and uullv.

A few months ago there was a rumor that Georges Carpentier's forfeit hadn't been properly posted, giving "Tex" Rlckard's partners an excuse to draw out of promoting the big Dempsoy-Carpen-tler match. As stakeholder. I knew that Carpentier's forfeit had been posted Nov. 20, 1920. according to contract, with Morgan. Harjes A Co. in Paris, acting as agents for the Central Union Trust company of New York, and that the French government wouldn't hinder the forwarding of the securities to New York. Wishing to have all the forfeits together in New York at least two months before the fight date. I asked the Central Union Trust romtiflnv In rahln fnr Ca rnentler's aciHIIa. U'ithln t an t v-f nil r hours Morgan Harjes Co. cabled back. "We are sending securities today's mall." Carpentier's securities posted to guarantee his $50,000 forfeit, by the way. are worth J54.00O at today's quotations. This ought to stop any rumor that Georges isn't anxious to fleht Dempsey. as well as the amusing story that Carpen- tier "Is trying to draw down his rorreit." "Tex" Posts Cash. Dempsey's forfeit bond waa taken out Nov. 20. as was "Tex" Rlck ard's first bond for one-third of the promoter's forfeit of $100,000. When Rlckard took over the match PHILADELPHIA, April 11.
