but Will Show Him Next
NEW YORK. Dec. 4 According to re
ports from the' west, Zbyszko's shov ing
against Frank Ootch In their recent wrest
ling match at Buffalo of a most en
couraging nature to the big Polish mat
artist's followers. It Is said trmt
Zbysko's work surprised every one, and
ss a result of the bout lie has won a
number of new admirers. Gotch, appar
ently, was surprised with the tusKlc
Zbyszko gave him, and he is quoted nn
"Zbyssko la a big man with which to do
battle. He has wonderful strength. As a
matter of fact, 1 believe him to be equally
aa powerful as Hackenschmldt. He lacks
the cleverness of the Russian Lion, how
ever. My meeting with Zbyszko has taught
me a lesson I am not likely to soon forget.
When I met him I had not trained, as I
thought he would be an easy victim. But
I must confess that he did give me a hard
battle. If I ever meet him again I will
prove that he Is no match for me, though.
Beell or any of the Turkish wrestlers could
defeat him, I think."
The following Is what the Pole had to
say of the battle: "If I meet Gotch again
I will defeat him. I am sure of that. I
had him pretty well tired out, and In a
battle to finish I think I would stand a
fins show. I want to meet him again
and I will show the world what I can do
to hla toe hold."
Since the big Polish wrestler has met
Gotch he has received any number of
challenges from various mat artists . all
over the country. ' He has accepted a few
of these and from now on will be a busy
COME ON, LET'S TAKE A SWIM
Contro-rerar Arises as to Merits of
Bre-aat and Back Strokes.
NEW YORK, Deo. 4.-AIthough that
branch of swimming devoted to life saving
would appear at first sight to be strictly
summer and outdoor topic, a moment's
thought will show how well adapted are
the winter pools for the study and develop
ment of new methods.
An interesting question has arisen of late
aa to whether the breast and back strokes.
which hsvs hitherto been deemed the only
available ones In life saving, are really the
most efficient Several practical and up-to-date
instructors are beginning to Claim
the contrary, and the time Is now ripe for
discussion of the aubject, as a contro
versy is sure to bring about the expression
of views from all sides and . result In a
most opportune advancement in the art of
rescuing the drowning.
Exponents of the new theory point out
not unreasonably that some of the grips
used at present, and particularly that in
which the rescuer seises the patient around
the body with one arm and propels himself
with the other, call for a side stroke.
They also contend that In those other cases
in which both arms are necessary to sus
tain the drowning person, only the legs are
used in propelling and that the modern
scissor kick is then far more effective
than the old frog kick.
There can - be no denial of these facts.
Both in helping a tired swimmer by allow
Ing him to place both hands on one s
shoulders and In dragging the unconscious
by taking hold of their hair or of their
clothing at the back of the neck, one can
use the underwater side stroke and the
scissor "kick very conveniently.
Those who would oppose the new methods
on the plea that the side stroke is too
tiring for life saving show themselves
Ignorant of the progress made In swim
mlng. It has been proved beyond all doubt
that the modern strokes hold the secret
of covering the greatest distance in the
shortest time with the least effort, and
this assertion stai.da, whether It be in
soeed swimming or helping some one
Conversation has been so long the key
note of life saving methods that it is hard
to introduce anything savoring of change,
but the wonderful achievements of water
polo players since they began to adapt
water wrestling and breaking to the rescu
ing of those in danger have given ample
proof that tha art is still In its infancv.
Some of the clever holds and breaks the
r'.syers made known have now been gen
erally adopted, and If speed swimming can
tnly fvrniih its cbare of development as
great progress should be witnessed again.
Several of the big athletic, clubs are
working on the problem, and water polo
teams are maklrg a special study of the
question. Concerted action on the part of
all who are Interested should result In
revolutionising the primitive system In

noaa Work Other Kipert
NEW TORK. Dec. 4 Tim McGrath, ono
of tho bent known handlers and trainers of
puglllHts In this country, seems to think
that Jeffries Is taking desperate chances
with Jack Johnson. McGrath has seconded
nd supervlcfd the conditioning of such
tided pugilists as Ike Weir, Frank Murphy,
Hilly Murphy. Solly Smith, Dal Hawkins,
Ppldpr Kelly, Mysterious Billy Smith,
Young Mitchell, Danny Nerdham, Kid
I.avlgne, GeoiRe Dawson, Tom Tracey, Dnn
Creedon, Joe Wolcott, Battling Nelson, Tom
Sharkey and Johnson. W hen he consents
to discuss pugil.Hm, therefore, McGrath Is
able to speak by the card.
'Jeff Is taking a pretty big chance when
he agrees to enter the ring with this big
neftro after a life of Idleness for nearly
flvo yearn," said McGrath tho other day.
You hear a lot of fans saying that Jeff
s only three years older than Johnson find
that the negro has been hitting tho hlKh
laces a bit himself. That may lie true,
but Johnson has been fighting right alont?.
Mind you, he bfat a good man last month,
for Ketchel was hlslily rftardrd as a
fighter until the black put him away. v
We know that Johnson can fight rlfiht
now, but wo don t know whether Jen can
or not. It's like the fellow who drank
twenty mugs of beer on a wager. He tried
t first. 1 think It would be a good Idea,
therefore. If Jeff tried a few second-rate
Too Much VandeTllle.
"I don't like the way Jim has been doing
his so-called training on the vaudevlllo
stage. If Jeff had hung a gun over his
shoulder and had gone off In the California
mountains hunting when the public first
asked him to return to the ring I'd have
had more confidence In him. Instead he
tackled this vaudeville game for tho money
there was In It.
"But there's more money In It for Jef
fries If he whips Johnson, for he'll never
die a pauper as long as white men live.
He had better forget about the footlights
right away quick ajid get back to the
simple life. No man can train on a
vaudeville diet. I've bucked that game
myself and I know. How can a man
train when he's facing the footlights all
the time, breathing the foul air of the
crowded theaters, sleeping In strange beds,
eating badly cooked food and catching
trains at all hours of the night?
"Jeff needn't think that he can blow
this negro over. He's got to have the
good old punch, that keen eye and that
old speed. Johnson Isn't afraid of him,
so get that out of your head. The colored
man Is the best front runner In the world.
If Johnson has the least bit of confidence
he's going to fight like a wild man, I
know. I've handed him and I'm quali
fied to talk, llo will not have a faint
heart when he gets into the ring, because
he is convinced that the bumble bee has
lost a lot of his sting.
Good Word for Berger.
'This fellow Bergor makes me weary
with his vaudeville game. What does coin
amount to In a crisis like .this? Berger
doesn't care for sentiment at all. He's
trying to grab off all he can for Jeff and
himself and then let' the "big fellow beat
himself just as old John L. Sullivan did
when Corbett beat him. ' Sullivan Just ran
himuelf to death and Corbett didn't have
to hit him hard enough to score a knock
out, Johnson Is JUBt as clever as Corbett
and he's a much better fighter. Take
it from me that Jeff will have his hands
full when the battle begins.
Had Jeffries and Johnson been matched
four years ago the sporting public would
not have regarded the fight serious'.y.
Johnson would not have been looked upon
as a formidable antagonist and a com
paratively small purse would have been
offered for the mill. But under present
conditions It is safe to say that the men
seem to be very evenly matched, with
the negro having a look In. .
"With Jeffries possibly going back and
Johnson still coming I think It is about an
even break with the negro having a chance
to win on strength and stamina. I'll
admit that Jeff Is improving In his con
dition steadily, but he will have to be
at Ms best to win back the title. If
Jeffries can stand the pace and can reach
the negro with his old time body blows
he'll win, but If Johnson can stand him
off for twenty rounds I think the boiler
maker will gradually tire and the negro
will finally put him away. In short Jeff
will have to win lntlde of twenty rounds
or not at all"
Other Experts in line.
McGrath is not the only expert In Cali
fornia who thinks Johnson has a chance
to defeat the , bollermaker. William J.
Slattery of San Francisco, who has fol
lowed pugilism for it any years in various
capacities, has the following to say about
If Jeffries hopes to get back into his
old form he should heed the advice of his
Intimate friends on the coast by cutting
out his theatrical engagements and get
ting down to hard work. Jeff may not
realize It, but he will be taking an awful
chance If he overdoes the exhibition gams
snd neglects his training. If anything
beats Jeffries It wi'.l be lack of condition
or shortness of wind, and as every
athlete knows Jeff will not Improve his
form by playing one night stands all over
the country for the greater part of the
"In his eagerness to gather in as much
coin as possible Jeffries may overlook the
most Important details of his preparation
for the mllL His advisers are constantly
telling him that he's as 'good as ever
and can 'beat the coon In a few rounds.'
Jeff was always easily influenced, and he
seems to be under the old spell now.
"But old timers know very well . that
Jeffries Is not the man ha was. It stands
to reason that five years of Idleness must
have had some effect on the big fellow's
constitution. No fighter every etayed out
of tha ring as long as Jeff and then came
back with the form he used to display.
Johnson, though nearly as old as the
bollermaker, has been fighting ateadlly. Ha
ia coming, while Jeff appears to be going.
Here lies the difference: Johnson has been
Improving with every content. We never
saw him display so mutfi class as in the
mill with Ketchel. Taking this for granted
Johnaon flgurea to be Just so much better
when be faces Jeffries, and don't forget
that the negro can get Into his beat con
dition In a few weeks.
Three Mob tha Outdoors.
"All the fighting men In California agree
that Jeffries will need about three months
of rugged life In tha mountains. This will
do him more good than all the boxing, gym
work and vaudeville stunts ha can crowd
Into hla system In years. Let Jeff get back
to his old training grounds, the mountains,
where be caa soon find out whether be can
recover bis wind or not.
"Without good bellows Jeffries will never
beat Johnaon. Three or (our rounds will
tell whether tha big fellow's breathing
apparatus is all right or cut. A man of bis

bulk will show this Weakness, If he Isn't
fit, In Jig time. If he lack the proper stam
ina It will be good night to the white race
and the heavyweight title, for the negro
will get him as sure as the sun rises and
"Johnson is a very shrewd ring general
and is always on the alert to take advan
tage of an opponent's first sign of weak
ness. With no wind. Jeffries will beat
himself. Johnson will not have to wade
In and hammer him Into submission. Jef
fries will blow up and Johnson can then
pick hint to pieces at long range. What a
aorry spectacle It would be If Jeff faded
away before this nepro because his bellows
went bark on him!
"It might do Jeff a lot of good to Indulge
In one or more real fights before taking on
the black pugilist. With this experience
the big fellow would know beyond the ques
tion of a doubt whether or not he was right.
There's a vast difference between a friendly
sparring match and a fight for blood. For
this reason Jeffries should meet Al Kauf
man, Jim Barry or Jim Flynn in a ten-
round bout and let the world know what
chance he has to whip Johnson."
Open or Too
Close, Pivot in
Foot Ball Case
Question that Will Govern the Bevi
sion of Bules by the Law
NEW YORK, Dec. 4. The question ss to
a revision of the foot ball rules is rapidly
getting down to an argument as to whether
the game is too open or too close. A gen
eral sentiment among those who have
been shocked by fatal accidents this year
seems to be that the play should be made
still looser, while another element deplor
ing such occurrences Just as much, thinks
that certain features of the new and open
game have been largely responsible.
This latter element, which has as one of
Its chief exponents Jim Hogan, Tale's
tackle and captain in 1904, and now deputy
street cleaning commissioner, Is opposed
to the forward pass and the neutral zone
between the scrimmage lines. He Is not
convinced, generally speaking, that the
ten-yard rule Is necessary, but Is not so
bitter against that phase of the new rules.
Bill Edwards of Princeton is In fua agree
ment with Hogan In this matter.
"Here is the trouble," said Hogan. "You
have your tackle, for Instance, with a play
coming at him. He has to dive into it, as
he always did, to break It up, looking for
a forward pass. He had to dive In the old
days, too, but he knew what he waa going
to find on the other side of the line, after
he had broken through, and he could
charge low. This condition Is simply ln
tenslfled by the neutral zone. The offence
has too much of a chance to gather power
before It hits the line. The men are play
ing In looser fashion, and lots of these ac
cidents to backs and necks come from
Just such crashing plays against a loose
and broken line, when the men do not
have an opportunity to find themselves be
fore they are In the thick of the play."
It Isn't only the line men who are af
fected by the forward pass," said Mr.
Edwards. "Men who are catching the ball
are of necessity in a dangorous position.
The end or tackle who Is to take the pass
has to go down the field, turn quickly for
the throw, and, after catching the ball.
turn again to go down the field. He Is
a'moRt Invarltbly tackled as soon as he
has received the pass, and, being brought
down without a chance of injury Is con
siderable. The play cost Yale the use of
fine ehd in the Princeton game, when
Vaughan's knee was so badly wrenched
that he could not play against Harvard."
These are the opinions of practical men
who not only played the game well while
In college, but have followed Is closely
ever since. On the other hand, there Is
multiplicity of suggestions from men who
want to see a revision toward a more open
game. The western conference has taken
action looking to such changes, and A. A.
Stags of Chicago,-Its representative on the
rules committee. Is keen for a revision of
some sort. He wants more severe penaltlea
for pilling up illegally, the blowing of the
whistle by the referee when the ball is
dead, and the stoppage of pulling or push
ing a player along. Mr. Edwards said that
he had Inflicted only one penalty for pilling
up this year In all the games he h
umpired, that one having been against
Waseuka of the Indians at PhlladelphI
It takes little stretching of the rules to
Impose disqualification as the penalty for
piling up If the offense becomes habitual
with a player.
Every referee who knows the rules and
his duties b'.ows his whistle as soon as the
1.411 la dead, and no further ruling la re
quired on that point The suggestion for
bidding players to help the man witn tne
ball along Is certainly radical. It would
change the whole aspect of the game.
