Ames Wins Chess Meet.
Ames, la., March 26. (Special Telegram.)
Ames won a dual chess meet from Drake
university, 15 to 1. Drake won only one
gams out of tits sixteen, Dewey defeaUny
Chicago, March 26. It reads just
like a story book and is one of the
most interesting sporting tales of the
decade, this yarn of how Earl Cad
dock, the Iowa wrestler, first got his
real start on the road to fame in the
grappling arena. It happened right
here in the Windy City, and just
three years later Caddock has re
turned an out-and-out candidate for
the world's championship title.
It was in the winter of 1913-14 that
this lean, raw-boned young fellow,
then only a little past his majority,
came to micago 10 iook auoui a uu,
as he expressed it. He had done a
little wrestling around the farms in
Iowa, where the sport flourished in an
amateurish sort of way, and he had
discovered, he said, that he could beat
a lot of the strapping lads of his sec
tion. This green hand was Earl Caddock.
About the first man he ran into in
Chicago was Bob Oakes, the big ath
letic member of the Western Electric
Athletic club. Bob liked wrestling
and, after listening to Caddock's tale
of woe, he advised him to drop around
to the Chicago Hebrew institute and
consult with Ernesi .i tye, the light
weight, who gave lesions in wrest
ling in that place. Earl t iok this ad
vice, and the next afternoon was in
the gymnasium looking for the in
structor. Ht found Kavtye and stated
his case. Tl ye was a twinkle in
Kartye's eye n he listei.ed.
"Yes. I can arrange to give you a
tryout right now," he said. "Wc
have a champion here ?!amed Hen
Reuben. He isn't much, but he thinks
he is. I'll see if he'll give you a
Reuben was approached and was
only too pleased to give the stranger
a workout. Word was sent out
through the building and dozens of
Ben's friends flocked into gymnasium'
to see the amateur middleweight
champion teach the farmer lad from
Iowa how to take a joke. There were
forced smiles on both men's faces as
they watched four small mats being
pushed together to make an arena.
Time was called and they went to
it. Rcuben.'.much the shorter, made
play at once for the long legs of the
stranger. There was a wild mixup
and inside of two minutes of desper
ate scrambling Caddock got a crotch
lock and half nelson and Ben was
flat on his spine.
"He's down," yelled Kartye, who
was referee. "That's great stuff; go
at it again."
And at it they went again, in even
wilder fashion. Reuben, enraged at
being shown up in this manner be
fore all his friends, tried desperately
to turn the tide. The harder he tried
the faster Caddock flopped him and
before twenty minutes had been turn
ed the great Hebrew star was dizzy
from being thrown about.
"Who are you, anyway?" Reuben
asked when he finally caught his
breath again.
"Only a farmer from Iowa," was
the simple answer. "Never had a les
son in my life, but just thought I
might be a rassler, that's all."
"Well, you certainly are," exclaimed
both Reuben and Kartye in one voice.
Everybody gathered around the new
comer and congratulated him.
"He's a ringer sure," was the gen
eral opinion.
Later they found out he wasn't.
"I gave him everything there was
in stock, but he broke holds so easily
that it was plain at the start that he
was a wonder," said Reuben. Ben
was nursing a cauliflower ear, the
first he had received in seven years
of work on the mat. That was all
he got out of the bout, but he had
made a lifelong friend of Caddock
and now they are almost inseparable.
In fact, Ben is helping Earl train for
his bout with Stecher.
It was on the strength of that
workout that Reuben, then a mem
ber of the great Chicago Athletic as
sociation team, recommended Cad
dock to Martin Delaney, who
promptly got Earl a Chicago Ath
letic association membership. It was
under the "cherry circle" that Earl
won all of his great amateur honors,
cleaning up the entire country.
Later, when he had decided to turn
professional, he turned likewise to
his friend. Gene Mclady, for advice
and was taken under the Omaha
man's managerial wing, where he still
U. S. Considers Big
Purchase of French
Bonds, Says Lansing
Washington, March 26. Represen
tatives Flood, Harrison and Ragsdale;
members of the house foreign affairs
committee, discussed the international
situation today with Secretary Lans
ing. During the conference Secretary
Lansing indicated that one plan to aid
the allies is to help France finance
the war, and that another involves
the sending of a military force to the
French front. It was said the presi
dent had not finally determined what
to recommend in his message to con
hecretary Lansing made it clear
that the olan which probably will be
urged most will be authorization by
congress ot a large bond issue, whose
proceeds would be devoted to pur
chase of French bonds. What amount
of bonds, whether a billion dollars,
more or less, Secretary Lansing sug
gested, was a matter within the prov
ince of secretary McAdoo.
The legislative program which Sec
retary Lansing indicated he would
favor includes a declaration that a
state of 'war exists; enactment of the
bill which passed the senate at the
last session, but failed in the house, to
punisn espionage ana unneutral acts
and an appropriation of possibly
$200,000 for employment of secret
service agents.
Warner Throws Foek
. In Two Straight Falls
West Point. Neb.. March 26. (Spe
cial.) Lew Warner, middleweight
wrestler of Howells, Neb., defeated
Elmer Foek, local middleweight
grappler, in straight falls.
The first fall came after twenty
minutes of fast wrestling with a body
scissors and double wrist lock.
The second fall required but five
minutes for Warner to turn the trick,
using the bodv scissors and bar-arm
hold. Warner showed wonderful
speed and knowledge of the game.
He challenges all middleweights.

Watkins, infielder, and Wayne Bar
ham, pitcher, joined the Rourkes in

several days, finally got through from
Oregon. Barham was originally due
Thursday night.
Cy Forsythe, veteran right fielder,
signed his 1917 contract yesterday,
too. Cy had been working out with
his mates all last week, but had not
signed up. Yesterday he decided he
had better accept Rourke's terms.
Everybody is signed up now except
Pratt and Benton.
Manager Krug put his charges
through three hours of stiff workouts
yesterday. The wind was a bit chilly,
the atmosphere a little raw and the
ground soft from the rain Sunday
night and Monday morning, but
Marty threw ill the high speed and
made his athletes go to it. Fourteen
men were out for practice yesterday.
If the weather warms up Krug be
lieves he will have the Rourkes in
pretty good shape by the end of the
week and that he will have a fairly
good looking nine in action when the
Kourkovinians tackle the Brandeis
next Sunday in the first game of the
year here.

Going to Make "Tinkerers"
of Your Drivers?
Most Certainly Not! Yet, what assur

will take a chance by "economizing"
in your truck buying?
GMC trucks are not made to meet a price, but
to render certain service ; they are properly
designed and constructed, each unit arranged
to handle its proportionate work.
Their simple, practical construction reduces
to the minimum the probability of any trouble
and the driver's time is not continually taken
up making adjustments or "fixing something,"
causing interruptions that waste his own and
the truck's time as well as increasing the main
tenance cost.

Richard L. Metcalfe Makes
An Appeal to All Americans
Native and Foreign Born Alike
DO you know that there ie printed
in this state a paper called the
Omaha Nebraskan issued every
Thursday? It has steadfastly stood
for the doctrine of "America First."
FOR more than a year now Ger
man politicians and German ed
itors have quietly carried on a boy
cott against the Nebraskan. They
have persuaded every one they
could influence to cancel subscrip
tions and withdraw advertising.
Now they are carrying on this boy
cott openly.
THE Tribune, Omaha's German
paper, reproduces from the
Cedar County, Nebraska, Wachter,
an editorial (with bitter comment
by the Tribune) in which Wachter
says: "Should we not immediately
throw this (The Omaha Nebraskan)
out of our houses and urge our
friends and acquaintances to do the
I HAVE accepted the challenge
thus given me. I resent the boy
cott and defy the boycotters. I shall
n'ot make terms with any agent of
the kaiser. If I go down it will be
with my colors flying. I make this
appeal to all real Americans to give
me their support and help me in
meeting this attack upon the free
dom of the press.
I HAVE carried this burden alone
for the past year. I am entitled
to substantial support. I am entitled
to the support of all men and
women who resent the boycott as an
unfair and dangerous weapon. But
above all that I am entitled to the
support of all Americans, native
and foreign born alike, who believe
that there should be no divided al
legiance in this country and whose
whole thought is for America.
O far as my personal interests
are concerned, I could, with
profit, abandon this fight. But I will
not abandon it until I have at least
appealed to all Americans and
given them the opportunity of say
ing whether they are willing that a
publication be punished for printing
old fashioned American doctrine.
WILL you help me in this battle
for American principles? The
Nebraskan is issued every Thurs
day. The subscription price is $2.00
per year. When you send in sub
scriptions, write me a few words
showing your appreciation of the
work the Nebraskan is doing.
Yours for America First,
Address Omaha Nebraskan, 256 Brandeis Theater BIdg., Omaha, Neb.
