Ogden A. A. Stars Will Depart
Within Two Weeks For
Scene of Battle.
Competition will be ono of the chief
visitors at Pasadena next June when
the western trials for the American
Olympic team are staged on tho coast.
Yes, and unless the wise ones miss
their guess now records will be made
in the meet. From all indications tho
meet should be tho greatest staged in
the western country and the class pf
stars will be second only to those won
ders who performed at San Francisco
in 1915 at the national title games.
In the sprints four of the greatest
stars in the west and two all-America
n men will be on deck and the, rec
ord in the furlong will, no doubt, be
a target for the stars. Creed Ray
mond, Ail-American 100 and 220-yard
man in 1019 and Paddock, 100-yard
champion in 191S and winner of the
sprints at the inter-allied games at
Paris last year, are two men who will
battle for honors. Hjpjvever, the Og
den star and the University of South
ern California speed merchant will not
"Slim" Kirkney of the University of
v,uuiuium uuu ouuuv winiiuns ui
Seattle will be competitors and men
who will make the two champions step
to win. Williams won, but tho 100 and I
220-yard events in the national title j
games last year. He has a record
of 9 4-5 seconds in the century and .1!
mark of 21 3-5 seconds in the furlong, j
Kirksey won both events In the junior I
national title games last year. Wilh j
these four men in harness, together ,
with the stars from other western j
schools and states, the competition!
should be keen. j
Anil the competition in the sprints I
j will, only be a starfer. In the high !
lJump such men as Richards and Lar-J
1 sen of the Ogden A. A., Beeson and'
Horine, "two" has-beens, Walker of
the University of California, and oth
ers will be in harness. All of these
j men have aviated over the bar at 6
j feet 3 inches or better.
"Woe Willie" Smith, the crack hurd"
jler of the University of Southern Cal
ifornia, the Thompson brothers, Hunt,
Leo and others, will present all kinds
of fun in the "stick events. While
j tho present records for the hurdles
some time, the marks are due to be
clipped by the boys who are scheduled
According to word received here
from President Bob Weaver of the
Southern California branch of the A.
A. U., more athletes of class will be
entered in Hie coming meet than has
ever participated in a single meet in
the western country. Weaver does not
bar the 1915 meet either.
He states that more than 400 of the
best bets in the western country will
bo on deck and that keen races will,
no doubt rule in the track events,
, while the field events will also be
Creed Haymond, Alma Richards and
Clinton Larson of the Ogden A. A. will
depart within a few weeks for the
coast, they will complete training for
tho western trials. If these men are
I successful on the coast they will en
ter the finals at Harvard Stadium in
jjuly and will sail with the Amorban
; track team, i successful there, during
i the forepart of July, for the final bat
; tlefield at Antwerp.
In the eastern trials the class of
America will be pitted together and
the matter of selecting a final team
from the four sections, cast, west,
north and south, will be some job. At
this time, Lawson Robertson, coach of
track and field at the University of
Pennsylvania looms as the coach for
the Yankee team.
SPLITS ARE BIG.
ST. PAUL The visiting Minneapo

$3000 following a game last week, the
largest split a visiting team ever drew
down here. The Indianapolis club took
the next largest cut last August with
a $2500 check.
Irish Scrapper Aspires
To Heavyweight Honors
Martin Burke Is Little Known
Except to New Orleans
Fans, but His Reputation Is
Spreading Will Tackle
By JACK VEIOCK.
International News Sporting Editor
NEW YORK. May 15. Martin
Burke is a plain but substantial Irish!
It doesn't meana groat deal to read-1
ers of the sporting pages just now, but
It may some day be k synonym for
'world's heavyweight champion."
Take the word of Now Orleans box
ing fans for this.
Down New Orleans way, the fastlc
bugs go Into periodical spasms of cn-
thuslasm that is, every time MartyJ
Burke has a fight in his homo town.
lAnd Marty has had a good many bat
I Of late the name of Marty Burko
j has been percolating around the coun-
try. He is getting on. His reputation1
j today is probably no more brilliant j
j than the average young heavyweight i
.'fighter coming up from the ranks of
I ham and eggers can boast of, but he
I will bcv.- watching.
On July 4, at Akron. O., Burko will'
j attempt his first long s'tcp toward pug-'
ilistic fame when ho meets Bob Martin'
I heavyweight champion of the A. E. F.,1
I in a 12-round battle under tho auspices
I of Matt Hinkle of Cleveland. Hinkle
things so well of Burko as an oppon
ent for any of the would-bo heavy
i weight champions that he sought noi
farther, after he landed Martin's signa
ture, than Burke's front door. And
Marty jumped al the chance.
Burke's record to date Is substantial
enough to back up the flat statement
that he is a fighter of parts and good
prospect for fistic laurels In his divi
sion. He is 22 years old, stands six
feet 3 inches tall and weighs between
165 and 170 pounds. He has a reach
of more than eighty inches, and when
ho is fully developed, should compare
favorably with such fellows as Demp
sey, Willard and Fulton.
' Burke look3 something like old Bob
jFitzsimmous and fights much the same
as Ruby Bob fought. Like Fitz used
!to be, he is little more than a middle
weight just now, though all of a bean
pole. He is no gelation to Jack Burke
the A. E. F. boxer.
The outstanding feature of Burke's
career in the ring is a string of seven
consecutivo victories over heavy
1 weights, many of them rough and
ready scrappers, with the ability to
! give and take a lot " of punishment.

Bernie Neis, of Twilight
League, Wins Right Field
Berth with Brooklyn Club;
Recruit Is Fast, and Can Hit
with Bat and with Fists.
NEW YORK. May 15. Tho first
robin of spring Is no harbinger of
Joy to the baseball manager. Like an
alarm clock it reminds him that It Is
time to go back to work.
But the first youthful "phenom" he
sees cvortlng across the sand below
tho Mason-Dixon Lino? Ah, he is
something else a?aln.
In the mad scramble of major lea
gue managers to uncover valuable hits
of "Ivory" to refurnish nltchcs In the
lineups by retiring or receding stars
several youngsters of unusual worth
have been brought to light this spring
Such a player is Bernard Edmund
Neis, the "Saskatoon Slasher," who
has come out of the west to gladden
the heart of Uncle Wilbert Robinson,
and who Is now a full-fledgc'd member
of the Brooklyn Dodgers. Neis has
hung up a sign In right field which
"Lay Off: Private Stamping Ground
of Bernie Nefs!"
Tn short, the lad from Saskatoon
has made good, and all In one long
The old saying: "Once a sun dod
gci always a sun dodger," does not
apply in the carc-of Bernie Neis. At
Saskatoon Bernio played in the cool
evening. For, be it known Saskatoon
Is In what Is known as the "Twilight
League." So Bernio was a sun dodger
before he became a Brooklyn Dodsror. J
But he has decided to stock with i
Brooklyn and he is welcome. j
Few players who came up to the
big show are more- interesting than ;
Nei3. He is one of the smallest out-j
fields who have made good with aj
major league club since Josh Devoro
hrokcln. He stands 5 feet C Inches
But Bernio is no blushing violet.
The scales show that ho weighs
around 160 pounds, and records of tho
Illinois Athletic club tell us that ho
once ran the 50-yard dash In 5 2-5 j
seconds when Coach Cayou was egg
ing him on to tear up the track.
Bernie can hit. too. He has won
tho name of "Saskaton Slasher"
among the Dodgers because of the way
he bite3 into the offerings of the pitch-e-s,
and-L'ncle Robby Is teaching him
to swing from both sides of the plate.
But though Neis slams the horschide,
he also possesses a slam in both fist?.
! s i- ' : I
for he was once a welterweight pugi- f
list of no little ability and the only I
reason ho did not follow the fistic j
game was because baseball appealed
to him moro.
Bernie was ushered 'in,to being at l fcj
Bloomlngton, 111.. September 26, 1896, to
I which makes him twenty-four sum- , 'if 9
mers old. He bats and throws right- H
handed. His first engagement was v - E
with Peoria in 1917, bue ho came 'to .
the Dodgers from Saskatoon, in tho "B
