Intercollegiate Champion
ship Event.
Several of the managers have been
using their talking machinery for the
purpose of expounding to others the
sorrowful tale that the association
does not schedule the games at the
various municipal lots according to
the laws of justice. They are of the
tpinion that each team should rotate
iround the circuit of diamonds, and,
f course, looking at it from a play
ers' angle, their view would merit the
ttaftp of approval. It is the duty of
fne directors to sausiy me yuum.
Mow, the two parks that draw crowds
ire Riverviewand Thirty-second and
Dewey avenue. Fans go to these parks
from all parts of the city to see a,
couple of good games. Now, if a
team guarding the basement was
schedule to meet the topnotcher of
their league and the game winked out
with a 19-to-0 score, would the fans
be as strong as mustard for the rotate
system? The directors can't always
pick the best bet for the above parks,
out as a general rule the 3:30 p. m.
games are live ones- Last Sunday the
last game at Riverview park checked
out, score 8 to 7, and the 3:30 p. m.
duel at Thirty-second and Dewey ave
nue punched out 4 to 3. It is impos
sible to utilize the rotate system and
' satisfy the fans and the fans are the
backbone of amateur base ball, so
managers with a hammer use it to
drive your team in line for the choice
Clash for Top.
When the evening shades are pulled
either the C. B. Metcalfs or the Mur
phy Did Its will be stationed at the
eeak of the Greater Omaha league.
These two speedy aggregations will
book up at Holmes park, 3:30 p. m.
So far the Metcalfs have participated
h a quartet of duels and have danced
sway with the chocolates three times,
while the Murphvs have mucilaged

Champions, old and new, will face
the starter at the Sheepshead Bay
speedway, May 30, when the field
lines up for the Harkness handicap,
a mad dash over the 100-mile route.
This will be the feature event of a
speed carnival that will inaugurate
the automobile racing season. This
event promises to eclipse the events
of former years, as many of the
Manawa Anglers Capture
Many Bass and Crappies
Fishermen at Lake Manawa say
crappie and bass fishing was never
better than this spring. Last fall
for the third consectuive year, fish
and game wardens seined the lake
and removed all objectionable kinds
of fish.
"I saw them make a couple of
hauls with the sein," said Bill Fry,
one of the lake's most noted fisher
men. "And I never dreamed there
were such big bass and crappies any
where. There were some whoppers
thrown back into that lake."
Crappies are being caught along the
shore, near the docks, while out on
the edge of the rushes the bass fishing
is best.

Vail, practically a youngster in the
racing game, is fast building a repu
tation as a long-distance driver, and
therefore .stands a good chance of
winning the 100-mile event. ' Dario
Resta, winner of many long distance
races, will also be a smarter. Arthur
Duray, the European champion and
world's speed king, is on his "way
from France to participate in the
event. Duray holds the world's
record average of 147 miles an hour.
From Last King of Poland
his name?
O Zbyszko hails from Poland. That
accounts for it, you say. It does.
But Zbyszko isn't Zbyszko's name
at all. His real name is Cyganewiecs.
Worse and more of it, say you. But
try to pronounce Zbyszko correctly
and then try to pronounce Cygane
wiecs correctly. - If you lean toward
consonants, and vowels mean noth
ing in your young life anyway, you
probably can do it. But, no matter,
here's how Zibby accumulated that
terrible collection of sneezing con
sonants. Zibby's grandfather some years
ago was a wrestler. He was quite a
wrestler, too, and a favorite of King
Poniatowski, the last king of the
Poland kingdom. The king took
such a fancy to Zibby's grandparent
that he bestowed the name of
Zbyszko upon him. A terrible af
fliction, perhaps you say, but not so
in Poland for Zbysco is a title his
toric of the country. It means
Zibby was born in Prysmil, in Rus
sian Poland, but at an early age went
to Cracow, a province of Galicia now
owned by the Austrians. He started
wrestling in his teens. He won
the Warsaw tournament when on a
school vacation. After that tourney
Wladek continued to wrestle as a
sport of recreation much as American
boys play base ball and foot ball. He
won the Budapest, Vienna, Hamburg
and Petrograd tournaments, but
since the war he isn't bragging about
those achievements.
Pay No Attention.
Finally Wladek, following tans
law, came to America. America paid
no attention to him. America esti
mated Wladek as a four-flusher
traveling on his brother's reputation
and refused to have anything to do
with him.
But Wladek stuck around and got
a few matches. He wrestled Roller,
Cutler, Westergaard. Ordeman and
Hussane. He made short work of
them all despite the fact that he was
shifting from the Graeco-Roman
style to the catch-as-catch-can of the
United States.
Then Zibby recrossed the water to
Paris. He won the Paris tournament,
wrestling Joe Rogers, the American
Apollo as somebody with" a sense of
humor called him, in the finals. He
threw Rogers in one hour and 20
minutes. From Paris, he journeyed
to Buenos Aires and won the Casino
tournament there by beating Alex
ander Aberg in the finals. He later
won another tournament at Monte
vidio and then returned to this coun
try in 1914. He has been here since.
This completes the history of the
"mighty son of Poland," as gleaned
from his press agent. The press agent
also says Zibby will make mince meat
out of Joe Stecher Tuesday night
He is very confident of this since
Carl Marfisi hung up the $1,000 bonus
to the winner of the first fall The
sight of money always makes Zibby
wild, the press agent says
Sure, he 8 a wrestler.
New York, May 25. That athletics
continue to hold interest at the east
ern colleges is amply demonstrated by
the remarkable entry list received for
the 42d annual championship track
and field games of the Intercollegiate,
Amateur Athletic association. Seven
teen of the 28 institutions holding
membership in the organization had
entered teams at the time of the for
mal closing and this number is likely
to be augmented by several more at
the special meeting to be held in
Philadelphia on May 31, the opening
day of the games. If the majority of
the delegates present vote in favor of
permitting what would virtually be
post-entries, Harvard and the Uni
versity of Pittsburgh athletes will
surely be among the starters later in
the day, with a possibility of repre
sentation from one or two more col
leges. That more than two-thirds of the
members of the Intercollegiate Ama
teur Athletic association should be
able to enter teams under the present
wartime conditions existing at the
various institutions came as a sur
prise to the officers of the association,
particularly in view of the fact that
the annual meet was abandoned last
season for the first time since the
initial games in 1876. While it is not
expected that the number of entrants
will be as large as would have been
the case under normal conditions,
more varsity combinations will be
seen upon the track and field than
were anticipated, after allowing for
the absence of the far western insti
tutions, Stanford and California.
Cornell Has Two Legs.
Although few record breaking per
formances are anticipated there is cer
tain to be an exciting struggle for
places, points and the possession of
the cup emblematic of the cham
pionship of 1918. Cornell has two legs
on the trophy at the present time,
which must be won five times, but nec
essarily in succession, to become the
permanent property of any one col
lege. So far as can be judged in advance,
Cornell's chances of capturing the cup
for a third time are not any brighter
than those of several of the other in
stitutions. It can be said in this con
nection, however, that the Ithaca uni
versity will not use freshmen in the
championship games, as has been er
roneously stated. Cornell has a rule
which bars freshmen from competing
upon varsity teams of all sports and
there is no intention of departing
from this regulation.
Of the 41 meets held to date Har
vard has won close to one-third, the
Crimson athletes having captured the
championship no less than 13 times
since 1880, the initial year of Har
vard's triumph. Yale holds second
place, with nine championships; Penn
sylvania third, with eight, and Cornell
fourth, with seven. Princeton won the
first set of games held in 1876 and
Columbia took the next three in a
row, which close the first place career
of both colleges. In total number
of points scored Yale holds first place,
with 75037-60; Harvard second, with
65413-14; Pennsylvania third, with
553; Cornell fourth, with 426-tf;
Princeton fifth, with 335, and Mich
igan sixth, with 190 1-6.

Disaster of Willard-Fulton
Match Means That Heavy
weight Champ Will Never i
Fight Again.
Chicago, May 25. Now that the
Jess Willard-Fred Fulton heavy
weight championship battle it off .
until after the war, which practically
means for good, the passing of Jess
Willard will probably follow soon.
Some match for war charities might
be arranged, but it is hardly probable..
Public sentiment seems to have been
so thoroughly aroused against a
heavyweight match that there is little
likelihood of Willard ever gettinfr
into the ring again in a title bout.
Willard will probably retire. He
never did care much for the fight
game, engaging in it merely as
means to an end; that is, the amass- '
ing of a fortune. This he has done and
it will not be necessary for him to
enter the ring again for the mere
purpose of swelling his bank account
With Willard disposed of, there re
mains only two men in the heavy
weight field; Fulton and Jack Demp
sey, the Pacific coast slugger. Demp
sey always hankered for a crack at
Jess, but whether he will have anj
success in luring Jess into the rin
for a 10-round bout is quite prob- .
lematical. He must look to Fulton il
he wants a chance at the title, whicl
probably will be in the air if Willart,
Fred Not Anxious.
Dempsey, 'tis said, is willing to mL.
it with 1-red, but the plasterer is not
so anxious. Bu. if he wants to get. t
battle for any appreciable amount ot
money he will have to take on Jack .
for Jack is the only formidable war
rior now in sight.
That Dempsey is the best wat
shown in his recent battle wkh Bill
Miske. Last minute worries brougli -
on by John the Barber Keisler pul
Dempsey out oi sorts just betore the
fight, and in his efforts to-overcome
tiiem he overtrained and was not a:
his best in the ring with Miske. Stil '
he pounded Billy about as he wilier
and once got home a pile driver. Hat
he been trained to the minute there il
little doubt that he would have pa'
Miske away.
Kelly Puts in Boost
"Spider" Kelly, a keen judge oi
fighters, one whose opinion is to b
reckoned with, saw the Miske-Demp-sey
bout and paid this tribute to tn -Pacific
coast slugger:
"Dempsey demonstrated to me it
this battle that he is one of the great
est fighters ever. His class was showi '
the instant he entered the ring an
began slamming his man around
First one hand went the left in th
third round and then the other thi
right going in the seventh.
Jack will be the next champion t
they give him the chance to fight foi
it. He is a natural distance battlei
and in 20 rounds there isn't a man ii
the world who has a chance with him
and this takes in all of them, irre
Call of Small City.
The call of the small city has beet,
heard by one of the leading bantams
of the country. Earl Puryear has
announced that he is going to move
to Peoria, 111., and after he has cleaned
up a few fights around the country
he will go to the t&wn made famous
by Jack Ryan and Jim Kenny.
Puryear is one of the brightest men
now in the bantam division. "One
loses his identity in a big town," he
says. "If you know 20 people in it
you don't know anybody. But if you
know 20 of the real fellows in a town
like Peoria, you know the whole
Earl is of French extraction, having
been born in the south of France. 1
His parents brought him here when ;
he was 4 years old and he afterward
claimed Denver as" his home.
Tendler Gets Coin.
To show how fast some of the box
ers make money look at this: Levi
Tendler, the Philadelphia newsboj
lightweight, is reported to havt
cleaned up over $15,000 in the last
eight months. This sum was netted
in 13 fights.
Minneapolis Athlete Wins
1918 Conference Medal
George Hauser, AU-American '
tackle, and track star of the Universi
ty of Minnesota, won the 1918 West
em conference medal at the Universe
ty of Minnesota. A medal is award-'
ded annually to the senior who is ad '
judged to have served the university '
