IOWAN'S STOCK GOES UP
Gene Melady, promoter of the Joe
Stecher-Earl Caddofk wrestling
match which will take place at the
Omaha Auditorium the night of
April 9, has received word from
Frank Gotch that the former cham
pion intends to depart from Hot
Springs, wliere he has been spending
the winter, to come north immedi
ately to train Caddock for the ap
Gotch is a great admirer of his fel
low lowan nd believes that Caddock
is the grappler who has the best
chance to wrest Stecher's crown away
from him. Frank believes that with
the proper training Earl will bring
the world's wrestling championship
back to Iowa, where it stayed so
many years when the Humbolt man
Caddock stock is expected to hit
the high spots now that Gotch is
to take him in tow. Caddock, some
times described as the wrestler with
a thousand holds, is said to have a
more exhaustive knowledge of wrest
ling than any other present-day grap
pler. With what Gotch, easily the
foxiest and trickiest of all mat gladi
ators, can teach him in addition, Cad
dock will at least face Stecher fully
prepared to resist any line of attack.
Caddock is training at the Chicago
Athletic club. He probably will re
main in the Windy City another week.
The last two weeks before the joust
he will do his training in Anita and
Omaha. ' t '. ''

Ideal Day for Rourkes

for practice for the Rourkes, who

muscles, improving their wind and
otherwise whipping themselves into
shape for the approaching season out

in Omaha, except O'Toole and For
sythe, who are both still without the
fold, were on the job to play with
the volley ball, toss the base ball
about a bit and knock up a few.
The Rourkes have been working
ill week without a manager. Marty
Krug has been going through some
lodge work with the result that he
has left the athletes to shift for them
selves. With the arrival of the rest
of the men the Ast of next week,
however, Krug will be on the job,
everyday to supervise the workouts
of, his charges.
