The Highland Park Pharmacy
would like an out-of-town game for
the Fourth of July. Address J.
Marcan, 1421 Madison St, Omatu,
Neb, South Sid - - ,
Each of the two big men who
meet in Omaha on July 4, Ed
"Strangler" Lewis and Peerless Joe
Stecher, is doing all his prepara
tory work at his own home. Stecher
is training diligently with his broth
er, Anton, Joe Smeal and a mysteri
ous stranger in the Dodge locality,
and reports himself in excellent
shape already.
His opponent, Lewis, is doing his
work on his California fruit farm,
and Billy Sandow, his hustling
manager, reports that he is also in
fine shape and ready to meet Stech
er today. Billy is confident that his
man will clamp his deadly headlock
on. Stecher and end Joe's wrestling,
not only for that night, but for the
entire season. While Sandow seems
to be placing all his confidence and
reliance on the Strangler's head
lock, the Stecher adherants are just
as confident that Joe will mash
Lewis' ribs so hard with the scissors
that he will not be able to work on
the mat again for many a day.
The ordinary work of training for
an important match soon palls on
the ordinary wrestler, but Stecher
has arranged his training so that he
has quite a variety of stunts, doing
away with the tedious matter in his
work. He plays base ball with the
Dodge team, of which he is also the"
manager; plays handball, runs with.,
his pet dog, an animal trained to
play leap frog with Joe on the road.
He runs a little distance and stoops
over and the dog leaps over him,
running oh ahead, and Joe then
leaps over the dog. Both the pup
and the wrestler enjoy the road
trips in this way, and Stecher re
turns with a good bath of perspira
tion and in good spirits.
The Californian is combining his
work: with pleasure also, as he is
climbing fruit trees in the morn
ings, adding a profit to his training,
and putting in several hours with a
number of husky wrestling mates in
his high-class gymnasium, built for
him by his wife as a wedding pres
ent. He wires that he will surely
win, apparently as confident as his
Joe Stecher is going to make a
determined stand to secure a referee
for this match who is a Nebraskan
and capable of acting in the capa
city of third man in the ring on the
afternoon of July 4. -
Stecher always has felt that in his
last match here with Lewis in 1916
the decision should have been ren
dered in his favor, as he claims he
did the most work and was the
strongest at the end of the contest.
However, many differ with Joe in
his 'opinion, and there are an equal
number of fans who feel Lewis
should have received the decision
instead" of the referee calling it a
draw. Stecher clatms in all his
matches he has never discriminated
against any man of reputation and
ability as referee for his contests,
but he believes there are as good
men in Nebraska as any place else,
and one should be selected to ref
eree this contest who will give both
boys a fair .square deal.
There is no question but what
Billy Sandow, Lewis' manager, will
have an opinion of his own to ren
der with regard to the referee, and
he, without doubt, will want to
bring in an outsider. However, he
had his whole say on the match of
1916, and Stecher made no objec
tion to Ed Smith, who is consid
ered one of the best men t in .he
game, and while many criticized his
decision on their last match, he ha
always contended that neither one
of them had any the best of the
match, and as there were no fa'ls.
no decision but a draw could have
been rendered.
This match must be decided on
falls, ,so that it will not be hard for
a man to decide the winner. Stech
er has always claimed that he has
no superior on the mat today, and
while he has had a few setbacks, he
cites the fact that Gotch, in his
palmiest days, lost a match t'j
Freddie Beall and other great ath
letes have been set back on differ
ent occasions.
Stecher asserts he will defeat
Lewis decisively, and once for all
decide who is the logical man to
meet Caddock for the championship
of the world here in Omaha in the
Dope Upset -With Dempsey
Favorite in July 4th Fight
For First Time in History of Championship, Heavy
weight Ring Battles the Title Holder Will Enter
Arena n Short End of the Bettings
(Universal Service Staff Correspondent.)
Toledo, June 26. Approximately
$1,000,000 was rushed into town to
day from all parts of the country
with this instruction: "Bet it at even
money that Jack Dempsey whips
Jess Willard on July 4."
The bulk of the fortune came from
plungers in the big cities who hoped
to find odds against . Dempsey in
their own towns. Failing to locate
better than even money, they sent
it here with the expectation of find
ing Willardites who would lay at
least 6 to 5 on their man.
But pxactically all of that $1,000,
000 remains unplaced.' There is no
financial backing for Willard and
right now there is the belief that
before fight time Dempsey will rule
a 5 to 4 and perhaps a 5 to 3 favor
its over the champion. If that comes
about it means a situation without
parallel in pugilistic history.
Willard in Poor Shape.
Never in the annals of American
ringdom has a champion failed to
go to the "post" a favorite. Paddy
Ryan was a 2 to 1 shot over John
L Sullivan and the great Bostonian's
backers laid 4 to 1 that he would
whip Corbett. (The californian was
favorite over Fitzsimmons and Bob,
in turn, was a 13- to 5 ruler over
Jeffries. When Jeff went against
Johnson he was favorite, while John
son was 3 to 1 when he battled Wil
lard. The absence o Willard money
can be explained in only one way.
His most enthusiastic friends have
lost confidence because he doesn't
seem to be in fighting shape, and
they figure an aged and improperly
trained Willard cannot endure be
fore the sledgehammer attacks of
the cyclonic youthful and superbly
trained Dempsey.
. . No Referee Named.
The rtfereeing matter is still in
status quo with the prospect of
more wrangling lobming large
despite the announcement by Tex
Rickard that the names of the men
who will serve as referee and
judges will be made public tomor-
Lrow. Adams tmpie, who is here
with W. A: Gavin, representing the
National Boxing cimmission, gave
out a statement last night which
read in part:
"Major Biddle will wire the names
of the officials to Mr. Rickard to
morrow." '
Fighters' Not Satisfied.
Kearns and Willard aren't at all
keen about having a pair of judges
assist the referee. Both are ex
ponents of the old plan of only a
referee. Rickard favors the three of
ficials rule. Why? Well it's a
mystery to me. But insiders claim
that Rickard feels that the only way
that Ollie Pecord can be jammed
into the refereeing job is to have
two judges assist him.
The point is this: Pecord is the
official referee of the Toledo Box-
Ling commission. Its rules provide
that he must referee all fights in
Toledo. And this Dempsey-Wil-lard
affair is to be fought under
Toledo commission rules. Pecord is
a good man, but both fighters know
otner reterees mat mey are Keener

about than Pecord. Rickard wants
Pecord to referee in keeping with
the Toledo rules. Feeling that per
haps the fighters might object to
him as the sole judge he espoused
the three-man plan. That would sim
plify things. Pecord could refree
and the judges, being men of sea
soned ability could safeguard the
fighters' interests by outvoting
Pecord in a decision if he blundered.
