JOE STECHER WINS
FROM JD SANT EL
Nebraskan Defeats the Pacific
Coast Champion in Two
Straight Falls.
AMES TAKES GAME
FROM HEBRASMNS
Cyclone Flippers Have No
Trouble at All Winning
Nineteen to Seven.
ATTENDANCE ABOUT 14,000
San Francisco. Feb. 22. Joe
Stccher of Nebraska, defeated Ad San
tcl, Pacific coast champion, for the
heavyweight wrestling championship
here today in two straight falls.
Stecher got his second fall in seven
teen minutes and fifty-four seconds
with a double wrist lock. The first fall
was won by Stecher in thirty-eight
minutes and seventeen seconds and
was obtained with a body scissors and
a double wrist lock. The attendance
at the match was about 14,000.
By his defeat of Santel or Ernst,
as he is known in the east and middle
west Stecher evened an old score.
Two years ago this month Stecher
wrestled Ernst at Fremont, Neb.
Ernst "rang in" on Joe under the
name of Otto Carpenter. Stecher won
the match after a long tussle, it taking
the Nebraskan over seventy minutes
to win the first fall.
Following the Fremont match a
number of Omaha sports who had
framed the "Carpenter" deal, declared
Ernst crossed them out and the
Omaha police ran Ernst out of that
city upon his return there from Fre
mont. At that time Ernst laid in the
Stecher scissors for a considerable
period and broke it several other
times, all the time talking in German
to ringside spectators urging them to
bet on him.
As a result of this some of the fans
who saw that match declared the be
lief that Ernst wa,s Stecher's superior.
But today Stecher proved he was the
master, for Ernst could not cope with
his scissors and wrist-lock at all.
Omaha Midgets to
Meet Fremont Five
For State Title
The Omaha Young Men's Christian
Association Midgets, who claim the
state Young Men's Christian associ
ation junior basket ball title, will de
fend that title when they play the
Fremont Juniors at the "Y" this aft
ernoon. The game is scheduled to
start at 4 o'clock. The Midgets de
feated the Hastings Juniors a short
time ago and got a firm hold on the
title. A small admission charge will
be made to the game to defray the
expense of bringing the Fremont
team here. The Midgets will line up
with Johnny Nicholson and Austin
Smith forwards, Owen Comp center,
"Fuzzy" Macfarland and Dan Long
well at guards. The substitutes are
Art Paynter and Dick Giller.
In answer to the recent challenge
of the Marvels to any junior inde
pendent team in the state Coach
"Bob" Hager says: "The Midgets will
play the Moore's Marvels later on in
the season, but this game will have
no bearing on the state title as far as
the 'Y' junior teams are concerned.
Young Men's Christian associations
" have only one official team the same
as high schools. The Midgets repre
sent the Omaha 'Y.' The state
Young Men's Christian association
junior title is not open to basket ball
teams at large no more than is the
state high school title.
HUSKER MAN BREAKS ARM
Ames, la., Feb. 22. (Special Tele
gram.) Ames took the first game of
the state gym series with Nebraska,
19 to 7, today. The first half was
Ames', 12 to 4. ,
It was easier for the Cyclones to
win than they anticipated, both teams
playing a slow game, devoid of any
features or thrills.
The Ames team did not play a fight
ing game, apparently assuming it not
necessary. The Comhuskers were
heavier and cumberstome as compared
with the Ames players, who outran
the Husker' offense and wiggled out
of their defense.
Captain Campbell of the Comhusk
ers collided with Aldrich of Ames and
he walked off the floor with a broken
ulna of the left arm.
Nebraska got only two field baskets,
one each half by Flothow and Nelson,
Campbell's free throws made the rest
of the Huskers' score. Lineup:

Colorado Senator
Advocates a State
Embargo On Food
Denver, Feb. 22. High prices of
foodstuffs and a shortage in supplies
was brought officially before the state
senate today in a resolution by Sena
tor Siewers Fincher directing the
Public Utilities commission to con
duct an inquiry into the prevalent
high prices in Colorado and take any
legal means to prevent the exporta
tion of foodstuffs, beyond the natural
requirements of people of the state.
The resolution says that the high
prices in the east threaten to drain
Colorado of all its food supplies and
suggest an embargo on exports from
the state be declared.

American and
Mexican Troops
In Near Clash
El Paso, Feb. 22. Mexican and
American troops faced each other
across the border today and for a
few minutes a clash was feared.
Early today Juarez school children
came to El Paso on street cars, in
tending to recross the line opposite
the smeller to the "Casita Blanca,"
or little White House, where Presi
dent Madero made his headquarters in
1911. Today was the fourth anniver
sary of Madero's death and a me
morial program had been arranged.
But the outposts of Second North
Carolina infantry refused to permit
the children and the band to recross
the Mexican border at that point. The
Carranza cavalry and infantry in the
Juarez garrison then appeared and
were drawn up within a few feet of
the American patrols.
A parley followed, after which the
children and band were permitted to
recross to Mexico.
HUSBAND HELD FOR

Woman is in Hospital Para
lyzed from Waist Up Head
is Mass of Bruises.
HE SAYS HATPIN DID IT
Athletic Board Wants to
In St. Joseph's hospital lies a little
woman who is paralyzed from her
head to her waistline. She is Mrs.
George Shepherd of 1205 William
street. Police are holding her hus
band for investigation because repu
table physicians scoff at his story that
his wife's condition was caused by
her falling on a hat pin two weeks
ago.
Shepherd, a uowenui man, tnreat-
ened Patrolman Ford's life when the
latter went to Shepherd s home Wed
nesday in response to a call from a
neighbor. The officer's suggestion
that Mrs. Shepherd be removed at
once to a hospital was met by Shep
herd witli an invitation for the cop
to get out. When Kurd refused to
leave. Shepherd drew a razor and
attacked him, but the weapon was
knocked from his hand before he
could do any serious damage with it.
HusrJand Tame Now.
Shepherd was comparatively docile
when detectives quizzed him in jail.
Me said his wife had fallen on a bat
pin and the point had penetrated her
skull. He suggested that this acci
dent might have paralyzed a part of
her brain, thus inducing paralysis of
her upper body.
But the story told by neighbors that
he used to beat her and that he gave
her a very bad beating two week!
ago looks like a more truthful cxplan
MELADY BOXING
MEASURE KILLED
House Members Vote to Post
pone Bill to Permit Sport
Under Supervision.
LANCASTER AC NST IT
(From a Staff Corp'siiondnit.)
Lincoln, Feb. 22. (Special.) Fail
ure of reinforcements to arrive on
the battlefield at the right time caused
the Mrlady boxing bill to meet its
Waterloo today. For two hours the
house members battled with each
other in efforts to kill or pass the
bill to third reading. It appeared to
be anybody's tight, even up to the
close of the roll call upon a motion to
postpone indefinitely it was found that
the bill lacked just one vote to save
it. The vote stood 48 for indefinite
postponement and 47 against.
Five members were absent during
the call Auten, Beal, Cronin, Harris
of Buffalo and Todd. Three of these,
according to the bill's friends, Cronin,
Beal and Harris, and possibly Todd,
would have voted for the bill. Either
one of the three, if present, would
have made the vote a tie, and con
sequently not subject to indefinite
postponement.
Later friends of the bill canvassed
the situation, with the idea of making
a light not to concur in the report of
the committee of the whole, but
finally decided not to do so.
Comefe in New Form.
During the interim of ten days
since the bill had been sent back to
the cities and towns committee, be
cause of its unconstitutional form, as
originally introduced, it had been
worked over by a lawyer and materi
ally changed. In its new dress, it
named the governor as athletic com
missioner of the state and provided
for the appointment of three deputies
to administer the law.
Mr. Peterson, leading the attack on
the measure, read the message sent
tn lhe New York legislature by Gov
ernor Whitman, asking for the repeal
of a similar law in that state, which
referred to boxing contests in gen
eral as "vulgar, indecent and brutaliz
ing." He wanted to know if Nebraska
was going to take up something that
New York is just getting rid of after
an unsatisfactory experience.
Says Permits Prize Fights.
"Under this bill I could pull off a
Johnson-Willard prize fight in the citv
of Lincoln, by paying the state 5 per
cent of the gross receipts," declared
Peterson. He pointed out some al
leged legal flaws in the revised bill,
which had been overlooked in the re
drafting. Mr. Greenwalt, replying to Peter
son, said that the country at large no
longer looks to New York for guid
ance or leadership. He pointed out
that New York has done nothing to
promote prohibition or ,other moral
reforms which many of the western
states have adopted.
Mr. Shannon told the house he had
lived in and around New York City
for over twenty years and was fa
miliar with the conditions surround
ing boxing exhibitions there. He de
nied that they were objectionabre,
saying that "some of the finest men
and women, from multimillionaires
down to the humblest class" attend
them. Roughnecks, he asserted, are
kept out.
No Worse Than Football.
"If it's all right for twenty-two
men to get out on the state university
foot ball field and maul each other
around for two hours, why isn't it all
right to have boxing exhibitions un
der strict rules and regulations?"
Shannon inquired He added that he
had played foot ball for a number
of vears and knew how it went. He
personally knew of a number of cases
where players bad been Killed.
Mr. Bates argued that many box
ing bouts are now held illegally and
under questionable auspices. The
purpose of his bill, he said, was to
insure a clean sport and prevent lanes.
He was not surprised that the gentle
man from the "holier than thou"
county of Polk (Mr. Norton) wanted
to have the bill killed.
The debate was closed by Mr. Nor
ton with the brief statement that the
hill was contrary to the moral im
pulse of the American people and
that its passage would be a reflection
on the state of Nebraska.
