SOON TO LEAVE
Advices From Cam;) Dodge In
dicate Chances Caddocn
i: Stecher Match Are Fad-'
That Earl Caddock, now a lieuten
ant in Uncle Sam's great national
army, may be prevented from meet
ing Joe Stecher, the Dodge phenom,
in the long-hoped-for championship
wrestling match on Labor day, is a
fear expressed in advices to Omaha
from Camp Dodge where Caddock is
According to the advices from
Camp Dodge, the 88th division, of
which Caddock is a member, soon
will leave for France.
The Camp Dodge men have been
awaiting overseas orders tor some
weeks now. Many or the other divi
sions which went into training at the
same time the 88th did are now
either in , France or England. Some
of them have even been engaged in
the fighting m France.
Day Not Far Off.
For this reason the Camp Dodge
boys believe their turn is next and
with from 100,000 to 200,000 troops a
month going across the big pond the
date of departure does not seem far
There is a report current that as
soon as the large draft which will
take several thousands soldiers to
Camp Dodge, starting tomorrow, the
88th division will start on its ,way
Caddock will, of course, aocompany
the 88th when it leaves for active
service overseas. And that means no
Caddock-Stecher wrestling match at
least until after the war.
It was this fear which prompted
Joe Stecher to seek a match with
Caddock, July 4, Joe had a hunch
Earl would be leaving and he tried
to get IndependetfCe day selected as
the date. ,
Caddock, however; did not believe
he would leave until fall so he rea
soned a later date the week of the
Des Moines fair or Labor day would
If Caddock does go abroad before
he gets an opportunity to wrestle
Stecher, many mat fans will be keen
ly disappointed. Nebraska and Iowa
tans especially have been looking
forward to this match and many have
been saving up their coin in antici
pation of the day when they intend
ed to plunge to the limit on their
Caddock soon will not be the only
wrestler wearing the khaki. Strang-
Ier Lewis goes into an American uni
form this month and John Pesek, the
Shelton wizard, expects to be called
Pesek is in Class 2 of the draft,
owing to the farm which he owns and
cultivates at Shelton, but it is said
the large calls for men are depleting
the Class 1 ranks at Shelton and that
inroads will be made into Class 2 in
August. .. ..
That being the case, Pesek expects
to be called early in the bunch.
In the event that Pesek is not
called, however, it is reported a Pc-sek-Stecher
match is in the making.
This too depends upon the status of
Caddock. For if Caddock is not
called, to war Stecher will pass up
Pesek for a crack at the champion
ship. Motorcycle Club Abandons
Rooms as War Measure
The, majority of members of the
Omaha Motorcycle club being already
in Uncle Sam's service, or else just
about to enter, the balance of the
members decided at their last regu
lar meeting to close house for the du
ration of the war.' All furniture and
equipment has been sold but the ros
ter will be kept intact and all paid
up members, and those in the service
of their country will be considered
paid-up members when the club re
sumes activities when the Yanks are
marching up the streets of Berlin.
The members not going into the
service, however, anticipate holding
their runs, watermelon feeds, etc., just
the same, and riders will be informed
by notices in the different motorcycle
shops. All motorcycle riders are in
vited to these doings.
Allah Be With Me Prayer
. Of Turk Player at Plate
Wells Hawks, the well known thea
trical press agent, who is now a lieu
tenant in the army, although occupied
with the serious things of war still
continues to tell a story or two. His
latest is one concerned with an Amer
ican sailor of the gunboat Scorpion,
interned at Constantinople.
This sailor, for lack of more in
teresting pastime, has been endeavor
ing to teach base ball to the Turks
In a game one day a big Turk, when
he stepped to the plate, held his bat
in front of him, solemnly aimed his
eyes heavenward, and reverently
muttered, "Allah, be with me."
The Turk made a two-base hit and
when the American stepped to the
plate he also held up his bat and mut
tered. "You know" me, Al."

AH interested in the welfare of
amateur baseball, especially the man
agers of teams that have finished their
schedule and independent team mana
gers are mvited to attend a conven
tion to be held at the council cham
ber of the City hall .next Tuesday
night. It is planned to organize if
possible a pair of leagues in order
to keep the baseball pot a boiling
and eliminate the work required by
managers to back games. These
leagues will not be governed under
the jurisdiction of the Omaha Ama
teur Baseball association, neverthe
less municipal umpires will do the
barking. Several prizes will probably
be given as an incentive for the dif
ferent teams to anchor at or close to
Armours Going Good.
When the Armours met the Council
Bluffs Longeways some time ago,
they pulled the boys across the muz-
zo down the ladder and incidentally
said defeat made things look more
rosy for the Murphy Did Its, who
are leading the procession in the
Greater Omaha league. Already to
day's game booked between the Ar
mours and Murphys has proved a
source of much wonderment to fans
interested in these squads. Here of
late the Armours have been putting
up starchy base ball and being rein
forced behind the wallop plat
form by Harry Williams ought to
help some. Shutout stuff was deli
vered by the Murphys during their
last tangle, but with Andy Graves
home run club on deck the Armours
would never swallow such a dose.
Potach or Hay will whistle 'em for
the Murphys and Stillmock will prob
ably be on the hpistiflg end for the
Wrestle at Holmes Park.
Fans that would like to see what
ought to be a dandy wrestling match
should arrange to congregate at
Holmes park about 2:45 p. m. At
about 3 o clock lorn Kay and a bird
tagged Queen from south town will
utilize all the tricks of the game
known to them to make the other
fellow bump his shoulders td the
mat. Some time ago, these two fel
lows greeted each other and after
working for a half an hour, the show
was still knotted. These fellows are
evenly matched and an excellent mix
is looked for. It will be a gratis af
fair to all who purchase tickets, for
the ball game and the bout will last
from 3 until 3:30 p. m. It will be a
preliminary to the Holmes White Sox-
Krajiceks battle which is billed tor
three and a half strikes. Both of
these teams are playing superb ball
these days, but as it has been custo
mary for one or the other to get
off on the wrong foot, or collide with
Mr. Hard Luck, it would be a diffi
cult matter for an expert dopester
safely to predict the answer when
these teams buckle up. The Holmes
certainly have an able corps of kink
ers, in Baker, Zink and Grant, while
the Krajiceks have to rely on the
puzzlers served by Kornish.
The two neighbors across the mud
dy namely the Council Bluffs Longe
ways and the Council Bluffs Metcalfs.
will lock horns this afternoon at
Athletic park, Council Bluffs. .
Draft Catches Amateurs.
When that choo choo labeled for
Camp Dodge, Iowa, leaves a cloud of
dust behind, loaded to the gills with
healthy products raised in this neigh
borhood, amateur baseball will re
ceive another stiff jolt. In lamping
over the various divisions since the
initial draft to date it can be easily
discerned that the Omaha Amateur
Baseball association has lost barrels
of stars through the wide reach of
Uncle Sam. Many others, to be
called later have enlisted. Several of
the bright lights that have on numer
ous occasions made life full of joy for

All Six Feet Four or
More From Tip to
Some managers, past and present,
have insisted that their boxman be
above the average in height.
John McGraw has belonged to this
class (to his sorrow in 1914) when he
saw one of his cast-offs, Dick Ru
dolph, who had been dropped from the
Giants on account of his small stature,
lead the drive which resulted in the
Braves beating the Giants to the wire
by a substantial margin:
But as a general rule the great
pitchers have been men of the six-foot
class. Mathewson, Alexander, John

The great little pitchers in recent
years have been rather scarce. Eddie
Cicotte of 1917 world series fame;
Dick Rudolph, Carl Myers, the sub
marine artist; Earl Hamilton, the 1918
National league sensation, and George

These men have been called diminu

line would be considered a fair

This brings up the question of the

This story was suggested by the
fact that Slim Love of the Yanks is
the most dependable of Huggins'
boxman this season.
, Love stands half a foot over six
feet and when he stretches out his
long left pitching arm he can almost
tweak the batter's nose.
Love is due to become one of the
greats in the box game this season
if early indications do not miscarry.
