DES MOINES WINS
WHEN PAT MASON
DROPS jASY FLY
Slcore Was Tangled, '1-1,
When New Infielder Lets
Popuf) Get Away in the
With the score knotted in the
eighth inning, 1 to 1, Pat Mason let
Iireen's easy pop-up bounce out of
his hands and paved the way for the
, winning counter. Coffey had pop-
ped to Gislason and Cass singled
" and Breen hit a high one which
Mason had plenty of fime to gather
in. Pat was under it easily enough,
but it bounced out of his glove.
Following Mason's inexcusable
error, on which Cass scored, Walk
er hit to Mason and Breen was
. thrown out to second. Hasbrook
had been put out, Gislason to Jack
son, previously and Breen's out re
tired the side, but the one run was
. the winning tally, Omaha being un
able to get a man across in the
eighth or ninth.
, The final inning looked good for
the locals for a time when Hazen
' was safe on Musser's fumble. Kirby
fanned and Gislason walked. Hale
t popped to short and Donica fouled
I couple, but finally blew the third
' Jtrike and the game was lost
The Omaha boys seemed to have
lost their batting eyes again, only
' one bingle being the count for them
yesterday. Catcher Hale getting a
single. Des Moines gathered six
hits, Right Fielder Walker getting a
The final score should have been
1 to 0 in favor of Des Moines, as
there was only one earned run in

A few years ago Jap Barbeau
used to be on the hop all the time,
always rfady for repartee with op
posing players 'or fans, and he was
always right in the game. Since
joining the Rourkes this old trait
has been sadly missing. He plays
good ball, probably as good as any
one on the team, but his fighting
spirit of old is not there.
Our own Eddie Hazen often
looks like he would like to step
out and bawl some one out, but he
never quite opens up. It appears
that he is a little afraid of the older
heads. He cavorts around with
more life than the rest of the bunch,
but he hasn't the snappy tongue he
used to display on the sandlots
Manager Jackson did give Umpire
Holmes a talking to Sunday and he
looked like the goods when he was
doing it, bnt at that, anyone could
have done that much and the Des
Moines players, to a man, did the
same thing. The Blues kept a con
tinual run of chatt;er going all the
time and their playing, aside from
the noise, was an indication of
When the lack of the noise on the
field is mentioned to the local play
ers they insist that the talking won't
win the games, it is the actual olay
ing. It might be well for them to
think this little thing over a little.
That "chatter" is an awful good in
dication that the snap is there just
the same. It keeps the crowd
buoyed up with hope and it's the
crowd that pays the expenses, so
it seems that it would be well to
let them "hear" a little racket on
the field, so they will keep coming
out to the 'park.
! Saturday night promises to either
make or break John Pesek, accord
ing to advices of his manager. Mart
slattery. Mart declares that the
farmer boy is working like a t-ojan
to be in perfect shape for the mat:h
with Zbyszko at Gordon, and is con
fident that he will emerge from the
fray with laurels of victory adorning
his brow. Mart says that Jo'w
boasts that said laurels cannot slip
pff because of the perspiration
either, for he doesn't expect the
mighty Pole to make him sweat any
more than Freberg, Peters, Soren
son and other big fellows he h,is
The Shelton farmer is proud cf
the fact of never having b.jen
thrown, much less beaten, and he
doesn't expect to break his' record
Saturday night by allowing Zibby
to defeat him or even win a fall. The
winner of the match will be matched
with the winner of the Lewis-Lon-dos
match in Omaha and Pesek is
anxious to get a crack at Lewis, or
if the Mrangler should lose to the
Greek, Londos would suffice, to
show the public that he is the logi
cal candidate for a match with Cad
dock for the championship.
Regarding a match with Caddock,
Slattery state that he will post a
substantial forfeit for such a match
and if the champion and his
manager want it so, he will let it
go as a side-bet. Mart says that
since Earl has met and defeated
Zbyszko, Lewis and most of the
others, he feels that his man, Pesek,
should get the next chance at the
title. He is certain that John can
flop the title-holder now, for a few
years ago, before John had had any
great experience in the mat gan;e,
Caddock failed to throw him and
now that the farmer has had so
much work against the big fellows
of the game and has learned :o
much about it. Manager Mart thinks
his man can win the honors from
Caddock, if he will only give him a

Rickard Asks Boxing Board
To Select Fight Officials
Promoter of Title Battle Invites President of Army,
Navy and Civilian Body to Pick Referee, Time
keeper, Judges, Etc.,"&nd Make Any Changes in
Arrangements for Good of the Qame.
Toledo, June 10. Tex Rickard,
promoter of the heavyweight cham
pionship contest between Jess Wil
lard and Jack Dempsey here July 4,
luesday night requested Maj. An
thony J. Drexel Biddle, president of
the army, navy and civilian board of
boxing control, to select the referee
for the contest. Rickard said Wil
lard and Dempsey had agreed to
accept the selection of the board. '
Rickard in his letter to Major
Biddle suggested the board name all
of the officials to be connected with
the contest which includes the ref
eree and two judges,-if "the board
so decides; to appoint the official
timekeeper and to alter any cordi
tions of the njatch, which the board
believes will be helpful to the glove
Rickard's startling announcement
came as a distinct surprise to the
score or more candidates, who have
sought to be appointed referee.
Major Biddle, a millionaire
sportsman of Philadelphia, always
has been a supporter of boxing and
won some amateur glove champion
ships himself. '
It was said Tuesday the board
would respond favorably to Promo
ter Rickard's appeal.
Willard covered four miles on the
road Tuesday morning and boxed
seven rounds in the afternoon. The
cut over Dempsey's eye did not per
mit the challenger to do any glove
Rickard's letter to Mayor Biddle
"I am writing to you in your ca
pacity as president of the army, navy
and civilian board of boxing con
trol. For many years I have been
convinced that boxing in this coun
try is handicapped because of the
absence of "a proper" organization to
look after its interests.
"Boxing was in an even worse
condition in England when Lord
Lonsdale had the moral courage to
come forward and established the
Natioqal Sporting club and a board
of boxing control.
"All honor to vnu for bavin? Hone
' the same thing in accepting the
bird who still has a 1918 man of the
presidency of the army, navy and
civilian board of boxing control,
which I understand Colonel Roose
velt would have done, had he lived;
"I feel that in being responsible
for the exhibition between Willard
and Dempsey. it is in my power to
do' something to strengthen the au
thority of your board, and after dis
cussing the matter with the Toledo
Boxing commission, two of the
members of which the mayor, Cor
nell Schreiber and its chairman,
Christopher Wall are on your
board, we have decided to invite you
to assume control in regard to the
appointment of all the officials, the
referee, two judges (if you think
them advisable), and the timekeeper.
I also ask you to alter any condi
tions under which the exhibition will
be conducted, if in the opinion of
your board, any such conditions are
inconsistent with the laws of hu
manity and the rules of clean and
"Before sending this invitation to
your board, I of course, consulted
Willard and Dempsey and when I
pointed out the great amount of
good it was in their power to do to
boxing by supporting your board, to
their credit be it said, they readily
"I will be obliged if you could in
form me at your earliest conveni
ence of the decision of your board
in the matter."

LEWIS' WORK AS
NOT HURT SHOW
Wrestling Promoter 'Made
Mistake in Officiating in
Williams-Lee Bout; Says
Will Never Act Again.
By KID GRAVES.
Promoter Jack Lewis acted as the
referee in the late Williams-Lee
boxing bout at Fort Omaha, which
ended in a very unsatisfactory man
ner, and he is wearing a woe-begone
expression ever since. He swears
he will never officiate in such a ca
While the disappointment to the
Williams followers was great, and
no one feels it less keenly than Wil
liams' manager, still he feels that it
was lack of recent ring knowledge
that caused Jack to make any mis
take rather than any deliberate at
tempt to do Harry an injustice.
The result of the boxing match,
Jack fears, together with his part in
it, will have a great effect on his
show at the Auditorium tonight,
whon Ed. Strangler Lewis meets
Jim Londos in the main event.
This should make no real differ
ence in the attendance at the Audi
torium tonight, for those who want
to see the high class card of events
Jack is staging, will go, whether
they liked the refereeing at Fort
Omaha or not Lewis probably
overlooked a few bets in that af
fair, but he was as badly fooled as
the doctor and some others at the
ringside, due to his inexperience as
a fight referee.
The show tonight promises to be
a real good one, aside from the ma:n
event. Charlie Peters will wrestle
a one-fall finish match with Ross
"Big Bill" Dristy in the semi-windup
and Joe Stangl will meet Tom Ray
or Jess Queen in the preliminary.'
The tickets for the show have not
been selling very rapidly since last
Friday, but Jack hopes that none
ot the fans who witnessed the Fort
Omaha mistake will hold it against
him enough to refuse to patronize
his show tonight.

Saxophone Numbers Popular
The saxophone has come into its
own in this month's Columbia rec
ords. At one time all the French
military bands discarded horns,
oboes and bassoons in favor of sax
ophones. The Columbia saxophone
sextette has v achieved artistic suc
cesses in rendering "Chong," last
month's song hit, and '.'Waiting" as
medley fox-trots. The saxaphone is
becoming more and more popular in '
musical circles, and this double rec
ord gives the genuine saxophone
