MACFARLAND WILL WAGER

Is Confident That His Protege
Is the Best Rider in
I, Indications arc .that National Cham
pion Frunk Kramer will either have to
defend his title as premier cyclist of
America against Jackie Clarke of Salt
Lako or bo dublicd it coward by the bl
vyclo fans of the world.
Clarke, through his manager and tcatn
. mate, .Kloyd A. MacFarland, has repeat
edly challenged Kramer for the national
. thninplonshlp, but Kramer has repeatedly
tdde-sloppcd the little Salt Lukcr. Kramer
lays claim to the title of national cham
pion and yol continually refuses to race
Clarke, who" he freely admits Is the next
best rider In the country.
Won't Hang Up Titlo.
After being' pressed closely 'on I he sub
ject, Kramer has finally announced that
he will race Clarke over the llvo recog
nized championship distances, In match
races, but thaL he will not forfeit his
title If In- loses. Tie says that 'ho will
race Clarke "wherever the largest purse
is offered. Manager Ileagren of the Salt
Palace has offered a "purse of $511(10 for
this scries of races, to bo held In Sail
Lake, but Kramer is averse to coming
II If tho races are held and Clarke wins.
j whether or not Kramer admits that the
J title is at slake, there is no doubt but
a that the public will proclaim Clarke
champion, and Kramer's claim tn the title
will be absurd. If Kramer refuses to
nice Clarke his refusal can mean only
that he is afraid he would lose to
Clarke, and Kramer will virtually forfeit
the title. Tho present situation Is such
that thero appears to he but one thing
left for Kramer to do, and that is to race
Ciarko over the fivo N. C. A. champion
ship distances and allow the title to go
to the victor. Any other action on his
part would undoubtedly place him in an
Mac Is Confident.
The confidence) MacFarland has in
Clarke's ability lo beat Kramer Is best
evidenced by this telegram, which he
sent Monday night to J. P. Norton, the
veteran cycling critic of Newark, N. J.,
where Kramer is now racing:
"I understand Kramer suys ho will ride
1 Clarke anywhere, even at Harrison. If
I Kramer will come to Salt Lake I will bet
I him $1000. If Chapman offers the same
f 1orms as Ileagren we will race him at
v Vnllsburg, If he will put up his tille.
