6) and low, the rich and the poor, he acquired a unique philosophy of life, live so that when you wake up you won't be in trouble," le often advised. He never used Intoxicating liquor in any form. He seldom used money for his own ends. "Too much iquor and too much money mean trouble one way or another," he'd say, "so I get along; without either one." His only boast was, "I have never jeen in any town which wouldn't welcome me back." Amnrillo Booster He was an ardent booster of AmarUlo from the first time he saw town. Years before he settled lere permanently, he billed him- self as "the Hying: Dutchman of Amarillo." Such great cities as Toledo.

New York City, Chicago, Toronto, and many others, once saw the Dutchman up and down their busiest streets decked out in knit jersey and wrestling shorts with "Amarillo" written on the shirt and his name on the pants. The Amarillo Chamber of Commerce used to receive letters from other cities asking how much paid this grand "ambassador-at- and booster deluxe." Mantell was born in Diekirch Grand Duchey de Luxembourg. He would have been 60 years old next July 25. His father was a French- man and his mother a Belgian. Early circumstance in his child- hood gave him ttie foundation for the man he became.

A fellow of no creed but a respecter of all faiths. A gentleman, a student of the Bible. A man of the world. A man of stolid convictions which he never tried to force on the other fellow. His father was a Protestant and a prominent Mason.

His mother a devout Catholic. Name Was Not Mantell His Christian name was Alfred Albert Joe de re la Gardieur. Loosc- translated the family name means, "one of the king's guards." When he was a child, his father died. Soon the desire to shift for himself, to make his own way and to seek answers to puzzling ques- tions of life asserted Itself and he left home. He took up residence with an uncle in JHe was to learn the butchers' trade.

But Uie idea didn't take. The boy couldn't wait until he had grown up to satisfy Ills ambition to see the world, to meet people, to mingle with crowds, to learn for himself the lessons of life others tried to teach him. So, one day lie left his uncle and leaded for England where he hoped to 'catch' a boat for America. He always insisted that long before he had come to America' it was the country for him. And, from the time he was naturalized in 1904, until his death, ha was one grand American.

In his work with the Maverick Club and the Boys' Ranch here, Mantell also demanded of the boys that they learn to sing the Star- Spangled Banner and other patriotic songs. He often offered prizes to xjys for learning the words of the national anthem. Made Sligbt Error Dutch didn't get to America that fast time. He made a slight error and got on a boat headed for Aus- lalia. There he made his living boxing and finally wrestling.

He made three more attempts to get to America before he succeeded. Once le went from Africa -to Paris to London an finally boarded a ship for America. But his ship merely stopped at New York and he was not allowed to get off. He then sailed on to South America. In Melbourne, Australia, again.

Dutch was now determined to let nothing interfere with his plan to come to America. By now he had taken the name, Dutch Mantell, which came about naturally, in Mel- bourne, one of his most ardent SUP- orters among boxing fans was a well- known Shakespearean actor, Robert J. Mantell. The actor went into he boy's corner one night and ad- vised him. The combination clicked.

Nobody could remember the wiry, boxer's name and people )egan to refer to him as Mantcll's toy. His accent trying to speak English was of German quality and soon they had tacked on. the name 'Dutch." Thus, the youthful rover became Dutch Mantell. He left his actor friend and caught a windjammer which sailed around he "Horn" and back to England, le left England and got to Cliiie. there he reached America In .900.

After two year of wrestling around New York, and eastern cities, joined the United States Navy 1902. Dutch often told friends those old navy days were the lappiest of his life. "There were only 24 of us on an old destroyer," he related, "and it was a rugged boat, but slow. When they began to de- -elop speed, none of us old-timers liked it and I got out of the navy n.1906." Here First in IMG Shortly after he was discharged rom the navy, Dutch carrio through Amarillo and wrestled here. "I aiew then; back in 1906, I would always be coming back to Amarlllo," said long afterward.

And, al- though his life took him to all parts f-the -world and over all the United states, he. kept coming back to Sixteen years ago he set- led here permanently and 12 years go began to promote wrestling and to devote-hls life to boys' work. As a citizen of Amarillo he did verything he could to promote any -haritable cause. His work with ttic, soys clubs was not by any means his nly contribution to the betterment 3f humanity. He had a knack of, biding out unfortunate folk who might be missed by organized, groups Christmas time and hoar te de- ighted in slipping away to bring happiness to those families! In fact, it was his willingness to co-operate in charitable causes which forced himself into retire- ment from mat activity, in bene- It performance for the Children's iome here he wrestled one Sailor Moran, a youth heavier than he.

tlon and will be furnished with new was the referee. The late Wilbur pews and pulpit furniture within fJawk was the promoter. This com- bination couldn't fail and the Mu- nicipal Auditorium was packed. The 53-year-old Mantell knew he couldn't stand the pace set by the crafty Moran, so, he resorted to his old sailor-day tactics. Moran re- allnted.

The result was that every- one of Mantell's front tcetli were kicked out and thereafter he couldn't wrestle, for his "store teeth" as he called them, "wouldn't stay put." Earned Hilt Million Thereafter he confined, his activ- ties to promoting and to the de- velopment of Uie Maverick Club, he Flying Dutchman Circus, the Boys' Ranch, and the hundred and one private affairs. It is estimated that during his 35-year career as a wrestler he earn- ed a half million dollars. When he SAT.

He helped in every way he could to make the Golden Gloves a success here.

"Every boy should uiow how to use his fists," he satd, 'not because he may have to fight, but because there Is nothing hi the world that gives confidence to a loy who knows he can stand up to anyone and fight a good battle il is forced on him." Dutch hated no man. The only of person iu whom he could not find an admirable trait was the bully. "Hitler is a bully," he said soon after the fall of Poland. "You watch, hell pick on all the little "eilows ftrst He's a bully and some day. like all bullies, he'll get Uckcd." About 12 days ago when Dutch was taken back to the hospital, It likely he knew it would bo bis last lourney alive.

But he never whim- pered. He died peacefully and gracefully, the privilege of those who have lived good lives. To him life was an adventure. He liked action. Excitement.

Although he could and did when asked give sound advice to others about getting ready for tomorrow, he himself pre- ferred to save his own thinking lor emergencies. He liked more than anything else to simply, wait an emergency arose and then match wits on the spur of the moment. Ho won many wrestling matches that way, and, somehow, always came out on top in the battle of life. His philosophy of death was that it was but another phase of life.
