SIXTEEN THE LINCOLN STAR—FRIDAY, APRIL 24,1931. Richards Booked Shoiv Grappling Qoods On Lincoln Mat Former Husker Tackle Dated Up for May 6th In,Capital City Match Ray Richards, who did his bit for University of Nebraska football, playinj? a tackle position durinpr three successive Uornhusker campaigns; professional footballer at Philadelphia last fall and in recent months an exponent of professional wrestling in heavyweight circles, is to display his line of grappling goods before a Lincoln audience. Richards’ local debut in the mat sport is to be staged at the new Lincoln auditorium Wednesday night. May 6, when the former Husker will come to grips with an opponent in the heavyweight brigade.

Lines Out for Opponent. “I have lines out for a heavyweight opponent of established ability,” Manager Max said today, *‘and hope to be able to make a definite announcement within two or three days. Tony Stecher was both fair and sensible during our discussion of this phase of the May 6 match. Tony admitted that Richards Is Just getting nicely started in heavyweight circles and. while he has won all of his contests to date, he is anxious to bring Ray along gradually, being careful not to overmatch him. "I can’t expect to get a Jim Lon- rios or a Strangler Lewis to come to l.incoln, but I believe 1 can get a capable opponent, one that is worthy of Richards' game, and most certainly I shall give it my try. Tony has left that detail in my hands and the most I can say today is that I am already on the Job. Saw Richards In Action. "Adam Krieger had asked me to be matched against Richards, but I told him today that I preferred to pit a heavier opponent than the Lincoln grappler against Ray in the latter’s first appearance here. Adam was rea.sonable about it and assented to my views, ‘T confess I wasn’t .seriou.sly In- tere.sted In bringing Richards to Lincoln until after I saw him per-^ form three weeks ago In a main event bout at Sioux City. la., where Ray downed Victor Soldat, a Chicago heavyweight, in straight falls. *‘T had expected to see a Richards that was mostly a raw rookie in the grappling business, but what I actually saw was a 217-pound athlete of fine physical development in the pink of condition, who took a stiff gruelling from a heavier opponent and then went on to put the Chicago fellow on his baek. ‘T don’t mind admitting that I liked Richards’ looks and I believe the Lincoln public and mat fans in general in this corner of the state will like him as well as myself after they once see him in action.” Bids for Parrish, Johnson. Manager Johnson, after throwing out his lines for a Richards opponent. turned attention to the detail of arranging a three-match program for the May 6 rasscllng show. He said Friday he would bid for Dale of Omaha and Gust Johnson of Chicago, two fla.shy welters who have performed recently at the auditorium, a.s prlnclpal.s in th* semi-windup bout. Manager Max has the hunch that Parrish and Johnson, who are evenly “Hunk” to Control At Notre Dame V. WICHITA, Kas.. April 24—(TP)— Jess Harper, recently appointed director of athletics at Notre Dame, said today that full re.sponsiblllty for direction of the football team next fall will on the shoulders of Heartley ‘Hunk" Anderson, senior coach. Harper told the A.s.soc'iated Press that he has ‘‘every confidence in Anderson’s ability to carry on Knute Rockne’s program.” “He Is the most logical man for the Job,” he said. “He is familiar with Rockne’s methods and is a mast likeable fellow I shall leave to him and Chevigny (Jack Che- vlgny. Junior coach) the direction of training and strategy.” The athletic director pointed out that there are approximately 600 football player.s at the school, including the various hall teams, and that the men who have been on the field are the most capable to i>ick up the work of so many men where Rockne left it Harper said he felt honored at being appointed to direct athletics at the institution where he gained fame a.s a coach from 1913 to 1918 and to succeed the man he proposed as his own succe.ssor.

CHICAGO, April 24-^TP)-- Tony Canzonerl, lightweight champion of | Knute Rockne LIFE STORY OF the Man By W ARRE X B R O H’ N. CHAI^ER FIFTEEN. (Copyright, 1931, Chicago Herald and Examiner. Distributed by Universal Service.) Some of Rockne’s adventures with football officials arc the world, will match his title ^ story in themselves. He had his critical moments with against the Da*®?; , j officials, as any other coach, but in only one instance did his ^Ttecha^i, England, tonight in the , feelings in th^ matter persist for much longer than the next Chicago stadium. ..................................... game on the schedule. This official drew Rockne’s wrath, for what ¡seemed to him to be bias. As usual, he had a story which went along Canzonerl, one-time holder of the world featherweight championship, will be defending his latest title for the first time since he won it from , A1 Singer last November, and if the i ’ betting odds are indicative of the «-»— outcome, the lightweight title will take a trip to England the next time Berg goes home. The slambang Brit­ isher today was held a seven to five favorite to defeat the New York , security of A .s position. Referee Tipped His Hand. k”Team A,” he said, “was playing Team B, on the latter’s gridiron, and the referee v/as turning out to be one of the real threats to the Italian by a decision at the end of the 10-round engagement. A.spires to Tony’s Title. Canzoneri’s title was dragged into the argument when Berg, who has done his fighting at 138-40 pounds, made the lightweight limit of 135 pounds to get a crack at the more expensive crown, Canzonerl, however, believed that making the weight had done the Briton no good and was confident he would win by a knockout within five rounds. Berg, who scored a decisive victory over Canzonerl in New York before the latter won his title, said that making weight had done him no harm and that he expected to repeat without extraordinary difficulty. Customem Not Excited. Both are aggressive fighters and the meeting tonight promises to provide more action than any lightweight title fight sinve the division championship began bobbing around like a cork on a wave. However, in spit? of the prospect of a great fight and an excellent supporting card, the attitude of the customers, especially the one and tw'o-dollar ones, has been apathetic. Finally, there wa.s a fumble, a ^ quick piling up of the players on • Doth sides, to recover the ball. Tlic referee blew his whistle, dived into the pile and wormed his way to the very bottom of it, finally clutching the football. ‘“Our ball!’” he yelled. Jo« Llpp, an official who worked in many Notre Dame games, year , after year, called more pienaltles, i f one afternoon, than Rockne thought were proper. After the game, Kock- net met Lipp, Introducing Cyclops. ‘•Hello, Cyclops.” he said. “What’s the idea of the ‘Cyclops,’” demanded Llpp. ' “Well, you had only one eye out there today, didn’t you?” replied Rockne. One of his last sallies at an official wa.s directed at Ckil. H. B. Hackett, one of the best known of the western group. Col. Hackett had handled the Notre Damc- Northwestcrn game of 1930, and a short time later, on the eve of the Army-Notre. Dame game, a dinner was given, which was attended by representatives of all the schools that had been on the Notre Dame schedule that year. Friends and L battle, between Sammy Mandell and Canzonerl, then the challenger, drew in excess of $136,000, tonight’s production may not attract more than 15,000 spectators and $65.000. With the seats scaled at from $2 to $10.80, including tax. the higher priced scats have .sold well, but there were many of the others to be had today. Tony Trying for Kayo.

Slight to OfficlaK The speakers’ table held an Im- po.sinq array of coaches, athletic directors, faculty representatives and others—but no officials. Col. Hackett remarked the over.kight to Jay Wyatt, another official and one of Rockne’.s closest friends, “Something should be done about the officials,” remarked Col. Hack- ctt, by way of conversation. When Rockne began Its speech, he had something to say about everyone of note, present. And finally he got around to Col. Hackett. “He blew his whistle so often in that Northwestern game,” said Rockne, “that he kept right on blowing It in hbi sleep. When he awoke the next morning, five dogs had Jumped in bed with him.” The colonel’s desire that something should be done about the officials was more than satisfied. Told One On liimsclf. Rockne was not averse to turning the point of a story against himself. He was discussing, one day. the reaction of some of his followers to hla newspaper writing. "I was down In Florida, grinding out something every day." he said, "and I guess aome of It was pretty bad I didn’t realixe how bad until 1 got a telegram from a fellow up In Minneapolis. " I’ve been reading In the papers about your illness.' he wired, and all thev talk about is that blood clot In your leg After reading aome of the stuff you lingered but a abort time, but long enough to ^ discovered by a newspaperman. * He asked me how I was and I told him I waa m good shape ■ Rockne said. “And I asked him hew he wes snd he told me he never felt better, Then he went his way and I went mine. The next day he had an Interview with me that was a little more than two columns wrong er, 1 meant to rav long’ Much for So Little. “Sometime.* I wish I could give my football teams so little, and get so much In return.” Rockne read a great deal. Hia tnstes were chiefly biographle», though he went in a good deal for mystery slorlea. Edgar Wallace being his favorite author in that line. One of the last- iioo'xa he read was a story of Pasteur. He was grestly interested in that and .»aid it was the gr ate.»t book he had ever read. "You ought to read it” he said, “I don't suppose you’d understand it, but you ought to read it” Rockne was not one to store up writings about himself or hi.-; tram, but I doubt If manv of theie aort of .*;torle» ever escaped him. His desk was forever cluttered up with clippings sent him from ell part.» of the country hy friends or well-wisheis, or, es the caf -0 might be. dts.aenters. Generally, the clippings had penciled notes by the senders. I am sure that Rockne read th*m all and I .am as sure that he forgot them, save when they might be used for some effect he desired to create. While 1 have heard him express op'n- lons of rertsin writer* that were hardiv compllmentarv, he never once made an issue of anything. Getting a rise out of Rockne was a* much a ta.<k a* taking a fall out of one of his football teams. Flooded by 5I*il. No movie star ever accumulated the funds, to criticism and advice on football. He answered a good portion of the letters and some of their contents would have created sensations 1 have tn mind a letter which came his way within the past two yesrs. telling him that a certain .sophomore, already a star m the Western conference, had made up his mind to come to Notre Dame to complete his studies snd play football. ‘ What do you thu.k of thaf* ' hs asked. "I don’t want boys coming to me from other schools, I guess I’ll write him a letter and tell him that Notre Dame doesn t accept transfer students A boy who would write a letter like that might accept such a statement And besides, he 1 probably so busy reading about hlm- .«•elf he wtll not have heard of Marty Brill '• Rockne did quite a bit of work In motion pictures, and eredttsble work He had prepared scenarios for a half dozen ■ shor.s ' Ju«t befoie his tragic end. Tliere was some duscu.sston of a feature length picture, which aimed to reflect the spirit of Notre Dame and of Rockne. He was fearfiil of that. Drew IJne On Guitar. “Thev might on having play a guitar under a balcony In one of the scene.»," he said, “and while I know that they work miracles in photography, they re never going to make me look like a Barrymore or a Buddv Rogers ” There were times in his last two years when It seemed impossible for Rockne t.o keep up with all hts activities He had his football. In season and in spring practice. He appeared at coaching schools. He wrote for the newspap*rs and magazines He made frequent radio appearances and was constantly attending luncheons and dinners as guest speaker. The demand for him as a speaker brought him to more than an ordinary lot of .schools and colleges. He was engaged In the stock and bond business and an exhorter for the sales force.» of the Studebaker corporation. Add to that hla motion picture work, his duties at athletic director at Notre Dame and hi* thousand and ore other activities, and it is difficult *to understand how he had time for hla family. And yet Rockne was es- senflally a family man. Many times, the very presa of all hta engagements led him Into aome ludicrous aitiiationa of which one which involved Bill Ingram might be cited ai an example. Concerning BUI Ingram. Ingram had been appointed coach at California, largely on Rockne a sayso. and one day Ingram appeared in Chicago, having been wired by Rockne to meet him at tha Sherman hotel on a certain Monday.
