IN CITY; TRAINED
N ROUTE HERE
"Strangler" Is in Best of
Condition and Wants to Take
Airplane Flight; Largest
Advance Sale Known.
Apparently fit to enter the ring
today, "Strangler" Lewis arrived in
Omaha last night for his Fourth of
July match with Joe Stecher at the
Auditorium. Not only was he fit
physically, but the California wres
tler was optimistic of his chances of
winning the bout.
During, the three-day ride from
the coast the "Strangler" kept him
self in training with daily workouts
in a baggage car which he had fit
ted up as a gymnasium. The light
workouts enroute, the "headloxk" in
ventor says, solved the biggest prob
lem facing a wrestler traveling from
cne city to another.
Lewis refused definitely to com
mit himself on the question of a
referee beyond the statement that he
would not agree on a Nebraska man
officiating. Questioned whether
Caddock would be satisfactory, he
would only say that everything
would be settled after Stecher ar
rived in Omaha.
Contemplates Airplane Flight.
Lewis is contemplating an air
plane flight over Omaha today. He
has made several flights at army
camps and is seriously considering
an invitation to fly with pilots of
the Omaha Flying company, who
extended him an invitation by wire.
Gene Malady, promoter of the
July Fourth 'bout, says he will not
permit the proposed flight to take
place before the match. "If neces
sary I will get out an injunction to
stop such foolishness," he said, when
Levis told him of the invitation.
Stecher will arrive in Omaha late
today and complete his training at
the Omaha Athlet:c club, of which
he is a member. He is still deter
mined that a Nebraska man officiate
as referee, he told Melady in a tele
phone conversation yesterday.
Earl Caddock. heavyweieht cham
pion, has recently returned from a
visit in Wyoming and is undecided
whether he can officiate at the
match. He has promised to attend
a soldiers' homecoming at his home.
Anita, la., on that date and says he
does not want to disappoint the
Should he he chosen referee he
says he will come to Omaha on the
Fourth in an airplane. "It is the
only way I know of that I can bjn
two places at the same time," he
told Omaha friends over the tele
phone today. Omaha aviators have
made a bid to bring him to the
match and reported last night that
they believed it would be accepted.
Largest Advance Sale Known.
Manager Charles Franke of the
Auditorium says the seat sale is the
largest advance sale a wrestling
match has ever had in'this city and
he anticipates every seat being sold
before the doors open at 1 o'clock.
Carpenters have nearly completed
the erection of the seats, which are
arranged to comfortably accommo
date the largest crowd ever as
sembled in the Auditorium.

BY KID GRAVES
Former Welterweight Champion
Sporting Kditor of The Bee.
Tpledo, Ohio, July 1. (Special
Tjelegrani.) Workouts at the two
camps were brief today. Willard
boxing three rounds each with
Hemple and Monghan. In the sec
ond round witli Monaghan, he
rapped hi sparring partner behind
the ear with his right and Walter
spread-eagled all over the floor. He
arose with blood in his eye, but try
as he might, he couldn't land an
effective blow on the champion.
The challenger did no boxing at
all, but shadow boxed three rounds,
punched the bag until he broke the
string and slammed the sand bag
for three rounds. Both champion
and challeneer are i in excellent
hane and a ereat battle will un-
doubtedly be fought on the i-ourtniNew York crowd.
of July. Dempsey s speed will on
set Willard s superior hitting aDii
ity to a great extent, but in the end,
it is my belief, that Willard's great
weight advantage, together with his
longer reach and greater . height,
will give him the edge.
Will Make History.
The battle will surely be a history-making
encounter, and the win
ner will be hailed as the greatest
of all champions. It is my opinion
that Willard will remain champion
after the bout and that he will meet
Georges Carpentier here in the fall
in the same arena in which he meets
Dempsey Friday afternoon.
Each declares he will win. Wil
lard was the first one I interviewed
and he declared that he expected
the challenger to give him a rous
incr old battle, but sometime before
time for the 10th round, DempseyJ
wouldn't be there. He thinks that
his left will hold Jack off until he
finds the right opportunity for his
crashing right and when that right
lands, the fight will be over. "
Challenger Dempsey ,is just as
confident that he will.be the winner
and that the scrkp won't last over
six rounds. Jack is certain- that he
will get inside the champion's long
left and batter away at the body
until he force Willard to bemd over
witm'n reach of his uppercut.
Dempsey is placing great reliance
on that uppercut and realizes that
for it to be effective, he must bring
the big fellow down lower within
reach of it. This he declares he
will do with terrific body punish
ment. Jack says he will prove to
the fans that Willard can be hurt
inxthe body and that the stunt of
letting his sparring partners batter
away at the stomach was not to be
thought proof that his abdomen
was "impervious to punishment.
Jack Kearns. Dempsey's manager,
says that the challenger's blows will
land at unexpected times and that
the title holder will not have time
to set his stomach for the blows,
ss he does in his training.
Now-you have iu Each man de
clares he will be the winner. Take
your choice. Fans, newspaper
writers, fighters and ex-fighters are
unable to determine just who will
be the winner. SJenny Leonard,
writing Jor a syndicate, has not
picked a winner yet. Tommy Ryan,
former middleweight champion,
says he is unable to say who will
win. Fijank Moran says Witlard is

Betting is slow and at evens.
