Service Pals Say Earl Will
Visit Home and Then Dump
; Plestina, Zbyszko and
Stecher. Et AL
Xew York, June 7. Stories of the
iniended retirement of Earl Cad
dock, recognized wrestling champion
at catch-as-catch-can style, circulated
last winter by questionable promot
ers, were branded as false in ther
every detail by pals of the mat cham
pion who returned from France last
week. Not only has Ca.ddock no in
tention of quitting the sport, but on
the contrary he says he will be ready
shortly to dispose of Zbyszho, Lewis,
Stecher, Plestina and any others
who have spent the last two years
claiming a crown belonging to a
man stationed along the French
Contenders Not Popular.
From the conversation of these
soldiers the wrestlers who remained
.- at home are none too popular witli
Caddock. It is said that the leader
cf the grapplers will be a hard man
to deal with when it comes to mak
ing matches. Ca4dock, his friends
say, is not under "contract to any
manager and does not intend to tie
up with any one, at least until he
finds out the situation here. He has
been out of touch with the wrestlers
and only recently heard that Jack
, Curley was bifling Zbyszko as the
, champion until Stecher, Lewis and
Olin threw the Pole into the discard
in successive bouts.
Caddock expects to go to his home
immediately after he i? discharged
from the army and will spend a few
weeks getting acquainted with his
family and "just resting," as his
friends asserted. He may not in-
dulge in any big matches -until next
fall, but by that time he will be
ready to talk terms with Curley or
even Plestina. As to Plestina, the
sponsors for Caddock were certain
that the champion had no idea of
barring any one, much less an op
ponent who exhibited any promise
of an interesting session.
Didn't Wrestle in France
The wrestling champion had few
hances to display his ability in
' '"".lance. About the only matches in
"winch he was a performer were
riose among the soldiers. Most of
'.he allied soldiers who took the mat
, snort were better posted in Graeco
:?onian grappling than in the brand
of sport which Caddock has learned.
' Jack Curley may be a 'wrestling
rust,'" the soldiers say, "but Cad
dock is the champion, and w
would like to see any other self
stled leader make a yell about it.
Ve intend to see that Caddock re
ceives his just dues and that he is
recognized or else there will be an
other setback in the wrestling
sport," was the parting threat.

Owner Gets $16,160 When
His Entry Wins Thirty
seventh Annual Ken
tucky Race.
Latonia, Ky., June 7. The colors
of C. M. Garrison of New York'
flashed under the wire first here to
day in the thirty-seventh Latonia
Derby when his entry, B." Frank, well
handled by Jockey C. Kummer, out-
-ran and out-gamed what is consid
ered by horsemen to be the aris
tocracy of western 3-year-old thor
oughbreds. The son of Sir-John Johnson, out
of Frankness really had little trou
ble m disposing of his field when
calltd upon and two lengths of day
light showed between him and
Omond. who finished second. The
contest for the second place was
more spirited, for Regalo who had
been well during the entire mile and
a half, fought it out nobly but tired
at the very end, and was beaten a
half length. Vulcanite was fourth
and saved his entrance money for
his owner. B. Frank was one of
the two eastern horses to start,
Ete-nal from the stable of J. M. Mc
Clelland, ridden by an eastern jock
ey, Schuttinger, being the other,
while six western entries faced the
barrier- Eternal for a time looked
to be a winner. He assumed the
lead at the rise of the barrier and
it ws not until after the mile-pole
had been reached that B. Frank and
Regalo ridden by Murphy, managed
to poke their noses in front of him.
From there on Eternal dropped
back. Thurber on Omond wore
down. Regalo and set sail for B.
Frank, but Kummer let out a wrap
on his mount and Omond could not
reduce the distance. Regal came
again and Thurber had to ride just
as hard to stall off Murphy's mount.
In capturing the event B. irank
won $16,160 for his owner, Omond's
share was $2,000; Regalo's $800,
while Vulcanite obtained $330, for
finishing fourth.
B. Frank's chances were not well
thought of by the betting public
and the pari-mutuels machines
showed that he paid slightly more
than 10 to 1.
Clemont finished fifth, Eternal
sixth, Pastoureau seventh, and ' St.
Bernard last.
The $2 pari-mutuels paid: B.
Frank, $22.40 to win; $10-10 to place,
and $7.50 to show. Omond paid
$13.50 to place and $6.70 to show.
Regalo paid $5.80 to show.
B. Frank was three lengths in

Double-headers on Tap at
Muny Baseball Fields Today
y . - .
Should "Bad Weather . Interfere Today, Muny Teams
Will Play Number oT Twilight Games to Catch Up
-' pn Their Schedules. ' . '
Regardless of the fact that the
amateur baseballists during the past
week have had little or no practice
on account of Old "Pul Jupiter"
interfering, managers of the thirty
teams of the various leagues affiliat
ed with the Municipal Amateur Base
Ball association announced last
night that their teams are in ship
shape tor today's contests.
Doubleheaders are on the program
at all. of the municipal fields and
the fans, if weattfer conditions are
favorable, will have the opportunity
to see their favorites perform and
fight it out for the 1919 city cham
pionship honors of their respective
leagues. v '
It was announced by Secretary J.
J. Isaacson that should rain of wet
grounds cause the postponement of
today's. contests twilight games will
be staged, as it will be impossible
to schedule doubleheaders- between
the teams on account of the shortage
of diamonds.
Like Twilight. .
Many of theteams are in favor
of the twilight idea and are .anxious
to start playing off their postponed
games this week, although none
have scheduled as yet.
A number of feature contests are
booked for today practically all of
them having a great deal to do with
first honors in the league race. The
many thousands of followers of the
national pastime will no doubt see
some fast and nappy, contests as
considerable rivalry, exists between
the various clubs.
In ttie City league, the Union
Outfitting -company, leaders of the
organization, will lock horns with
the Omaha Printing company ag
gregation, tail-enders, on the battli
field at Thirty-first and Ames ave
nue. Both teams are confident ot
a victory and as the printers have
strengthened their lineup a battle to
the finish is looked for. At Fon
tenelle park the Bowen Furniture
company and the McCaffery Motor
crew will clash for the first time
this season. Bill Pinault, former
twirler for the Bowen's, will 4?e on
the firing line against his former
team mates.
First honors in the American
league will be settled when the
Riggs Opticals and the Paxton
Vierlings mix at Miller park, 3:30
o'clock. Both teams are 'tied with
an .800 oer cent, having won four
and lost one. At that rate last night
neither manager would say who he
would send to the firing line, but it
is expected the Beers will heave
them over the rubber for the iron
Sample Harts vs. Motors. (
For the second time this season
the Sample-Harts and the Univeisal
Motor crew will battle at Thirty!
second and Dewey avenue, the game
starting at 3:30 o'clock. The Uni
versal are out for revenge over the
defeat handed them in the earlier
part of the season and Manager
(Two Falls Out of Three)
Jim Londos
Greek Champion of the World
mm mm mm mm. mm
Under Promotion of
Bily Shields announced that he will
either pitch John Reed or "Doc"
Sohn, with Johnny Shields behind
the bat. Johnny Cogan will make
his farewell appearance for at least
two months, at the initial sack for
theMotor crew, as he leaves on a
western business trip Monday.
Scheaf, the .crack twirler who has
been pitching great ball this season,
will be in the box for the Sample
Hart. Both managers are confident
that their warriors will be in the
lead when the tangle is over.
The first game atr Thirty-first
and Dewey avenue will be put on
by the American Railway Express
and the J. B. Roots for the stellar
postiton in the American league.
Several good games are on the pro
gram in the Booster league. At
Elmwelbd park, east diamonds, the
Ramblers and the Benson Mer
chants will fight it out, while down
at Carter Lake the Leavenworth
Merchants clash with the World
Herald team. , V
. O. League Open. ,
Amateur fans who have banked
on seeing the Greater Omaha
leaguers perform today will be dis
appointed as none of the teams will
be seen in action on the local sand
lots. All of the teams, with the ex
teption of Marty O'Toole Brandeis
nine will play out-of-town. Marty
kept his date open vuntil Friday
night, intending to play, in the
league, but none of the class A
teams wanted to cancel their out-of-town
tangles, so 'Marty arranged a
game with the Longeways" of Coun
cil Bluffs and his warriors will jourr
ney across the "Big Muddy"- and
entertain the Council Bluffs fans.

Greater Omaha league teams will

New York, June 7. Back in civ

of service overseas, Mike HD'Dowd,
middleweight boxing champion of
the world, says he hopes to be
ready to defend his laurels by July
4. He will , leave immediately for
his home in St. Paul, where his
mother is ill O'Dowd does not
want to waste any time recouping
his depleted fortune, but he does ex
pect to spend a couple of weeks
getting acquainted with his mother
before he accepts any defi which
may be sent his way.

a bit particular as to the1 opponent.
For that matter O'Dowd says that
he would rather it would be Mike
Gibbons or Soldier Bartfield than

O Dowd had several scraps on the
other side but never was extended
even when he entered the light
heavyweight , class in the King's
tourney. He was on the trail of
Georges Carpentier most of the
time, but the French idol never
could be convinced that it was
worth while putting on his ring

Carpentier stepped into the ring the
Frenchman would have been elim
inated there and then.
"Carpentier is far from being a
heavyweight possibility," . sayt
O'Dowd. "I saw the French fight
er several times but never in ring
costume, so cannot say as to his
condition. He seemed too slim to
be pitted against Dempsey or Wil

he ever would box again profession

interested' in war work that he has
had no time for any other thoughts.
"I did not like the complexion of
Carpentier. He was very pale and
his eyes glowed. He looks more
like an opera singer than a boxer.
I would like nothing better than
to have ten rounds with Carpentier."
