Gaddock Third Man in Ring

Wre&lers Both on Hand and Stage All Set for Big

Crowd Is Looked For.
Earl Caddock,of Anita, la., heavy
weight wrestling champion of the
world, will he the third man in the
ring at the Joe Stecher and
"Strangler". Lewis match at the
Auditorium this afternoon. Lewis
through his manager, Billy Saudow,
threatened to call off the bout un
less a referee living outside of the
state was selected. '
Caddock, who was in the city in
conference with Gene Melady, hi:,
manager and promoter of today's
bout, finally consented, to officiate
in case he could secure his release
from his promise to attend 'a sol
diers' homecoming celebration in his
home town. The committee in
charge of the celebration held a spe
cial meeting last night and, after the
conditions of the wrestling match
were explained, consented to releas
ing Earl on condition that he would
hurry home in time for the evening
No Standing Room.
Gene Melady reiterated last night
his decision that under no circum
stances would any standing room
seats be sold. "I have guaranteed
comfort for the spectators who have
purchased and I will not
crowd the building so it will be un
comfortable," said Mr. Melady.
"The 20 tons of ice and the circulat
ing fans will be put in operation
early so that the building will be
thoroughly cooled before the crowd
starts to arrive."
Large delegations from Lincoln,
York, Holdrege,' Dodge andFre
mont arrived last night for the bout.
The first money in any large
amounts to be bet n Lewis to win
came from Lincoln and several size
able Wagers were made. Stecher
still ranks the favorite in Omaha.
Joe Stecher anrj his wife and
brother Antone arrived in Omaha'
last night, driving down from their
home in an auto. Joe was in the
best of spirits and looking hard as
nails. He is brimming over with

Stevens of the Missouri Athletic

wrestling match. Parker's 15-piece

Earl Caddock, wrestling championj
and reteree ot the Mecher-Lewis
match at the Auditorium today, has
political ambitions. Earl is consid
ering tossing his hat into the ring
for congress at the next election.
"I have just one law I want to be
sure gets on the statute books,"
said Earl. "I favor sentencing ev
ery man to life imprisonment who
raises carrots. Not only should he
be given this sentence, but he should
be made to' live on carrots. The
worst insult any man could give me
would be to offer me carrots. While
in France I had carrots for break
fast, carrots for dinner, carrots for
supper.and any time iwas hungry
they gave me more carrots."
After Second Lieuts.
Earl has another ambition since
his return from overseas. He wants
to meet every second lieutenant in
the' army on the wrestling mat.
Earl says he will meet them any
way, . one-at a time or by squads.
"I would like to get a head- scissors
on every second lieut in the coun
try and brother, I would sure clamp
it cm tight," the champion said.
The army did not treat Earl kind
ly and he is badly out of condition.
His weight is now 20 pounds less
than when he left and he has gained
7 pounds since his return. He now
weighs 172 pounds. The canned
"chow" of army life, h says, did not
agree with him.
One year ago, he savs, will always
be remembered. On a forced march
with little to eat and less to drink,
he was wearily dragging along when
a comrade, much older than himself,
dropped from the ranks exhausted.
Rather than leave him behind, Earl
carrjed his pack and permitted him
to stay with his command.
To Defend Title.
After the' Fourth Caddock will
leave for Excelsior Springs to get
in condition to defend his title.
"After I am in condition I will cer
tainly defend the title as the public
demands," said Earl. "I appreciate
he courtesies the public has ac
corded ie and will do all in my
power to return them."
Sari was requested to return to
France and participate irr the inter
allied athletic games. He answered
in one word. "Nix." "Iowa is plenty
go6d enough for me," he said. ' "I
am now in the real estate business
and after watching, the land increase
in value, I know it is the best place
in the orld '

Marital Objection
May Keep Biddle
From July 4 Fight
Toledo, O., July 3. When Phila
delphia Jack O'Brien arrived in To
ledo Thursday morning he appeared
very mysterious. ,
He gave out word that he was
acting for Maj. A. J.'Drexjl Biddle
and announced that became of mar
ital objections and' army doties, Mr.
Biddle would probably be unable to
be at the ringside of the Willard
Dempsey fracas an act as judge.
. O'Brien said Promoter Tex Rick
ard would be officially notified.
xWhen Rickard was questioned re
garding O'Brien's story he merely
said, "ThereS" nothing to ft at all."
Should it be a fact, no one in au
thority knows who will be selected
to act as judge in Blddle's stead. It
may mean that' Frank Flourney,
Rickard's partner in the venture,
will be the man " to take Biddle's
place, but there is a strong rumor
that some newspaper man will be
asked to fill the position. Details
will not be known until Today and
the affair will in no way delay the
American Association.

McCaffrey Manager
Barred Indefinitel;
by League Offii
Directors ot the Municipal Ama
teur Baseball association at their
meeting last night at the office of
Park Commissioner Falconer in the
city hall upheld Secretary Isaacson's
decision in suspending Manager
Horace Rosenblum of the McCaf
frey Motor team, for threatening to
withdraw his team from the City
league, on account of'a recent ver
dict of that body when they ordered
the protested game between his
team and the Bowen Furnitures re
played on the ground that Frank
Mirasky was a Class A player.
Rosenblum's suspension, which is
indefinite, is also based on the fact
that he failed to abide by the in
structions of Secretary Isaacson and
Frank Jacobs, the latter president
of the City league. Both Isaacson
and Jacobs, it was 'brought out at
the meeting, notified Rosenblum not
to use Mirasky. t 1
The meeting was one of the
stormiest held by the amateur body
thus far. Both Rosenblum and T.
S. McCaffrey, the latter backer of
the team, were given a hearing on
the matter. However, it is rossible
that the McCaffrey manager will be
reinstated before the season is over,
but nothing definitely was decided.
The directors also overruled the
decision of the City league man
agers jn the McCaffrey-Bowen pro
test, and ordered the game to stand
as played. The McCaffreys won
the game by a 2 to 1 score.
R. R. Bitney and Jerry Fratt of
the Willard Storage Battery-team
of the City league asked for their
release from the team in order to
play class A ball, but instead they
signed up with the Bowen Furni
tures. The directors passed a mo
tion that these two men must either
play class A ball or play with the
Willards for the remainder of the
season, or they will be barred.
Player Bogue was allowed to play
with the Orchard-Wilhelm team of
the Commercial league because he
is employed by that firm.
