H - THE EVENING STANDARD. OGDEN. UTAH. MONDAY, NOVEMBER 18, 1912. ( H
H SCOOP THOUGHT A STEAM ROLLER HAD HIT HIM jf
M RITCHIE GLEEFUL
M OVER MATCH
H Willie Ritchie was a busy person
H getting ready to open training quar-
H ters at Billy Shannon's camp in San
H Rafael, and now he is In full swing
H in preparation for tbo Thanksgiving
H dar fistic engagement with Ad Wol-
1 gasL The local llghtwolsht is happy
B as a lark, now that tho championship
h match has been cinched, and ho is
H around wearing a smile as broad as
fl Tom Sharkey's shoulders.
H There never lived a challenger of a
H champion who started his training
H any more confident than Ritchie. For
Hj months past he has concentrated his
H thoughts on a match with Wolgast.
H and he declares now that ho Is only
Hl waiting for the time to elnpso before
H lie climbs through the ropes to com-
R pete for the lightweight title.
H 'The best music xthat over cano to
H my ears will be when the gong sounds
H for the first round which Till send
H me against the champion," said WH-
H lie in his usual modest way. "I know
H that I will be fit and ready, and am
H confident enough to think that I will
H beat Wolgast. For weeks I have been
Hj doing preliminary work, which has me
H right on edge to start my training in
H the gym.
H "I think I know how to prepare for
H a fighter of Wolgast's type. He fights
H only one style, and I gained a lot of,
H experience in my four-round encoun-
H ter with him only a Tew months back.
H He tears In all the time and I will try
H and prepare to meet his attack I will
H not do too much work, for I do not be-
fl lieve In living too mcch in tho gym -
H nasium.
fl "Jeff Perry, a rough and willing
B mixer, and Frankie Edv;ards, a clever
H lightweight, are working with me, and
H in addition I wijl have another husky
H boxer to assist me in my sparring. I
H will not overdo road work, for that is
H weakening, but will do enough train-
H ing to sharpen my eye and have my
H wind 0. K. to stand a bruising fight.
H '-The weight will not bother me in
Hl the least In my last two fights I did
H 133 pounds and was at my best. You
H know I was weighed In at the ring-
H side for Wolgast before, and when I
wunrmrrnrrr ii i iii ii 1 1 i iiiiii i v ' 1 1 m ii i iu. L-nTTT
met Mandot in New Orleans I weighed
133 pounds at 3 o'clock. Right now I
only weigh 139 pounds, which makes
It easy. Before I was around 142 and
143 pounds, which shows that I am
getting lighter these days."
Jones Tells Big Stories
Ritchie paid a visit to Promoter
Coffroth, and while there bumped into
Tom Jones, Wolgast's manager Jones
was sporting a big diamond In hl3
necktie as big as a hunk of coal, and
was tolling the boys how he and Wol
gast had $165,000 real money Invested
in real estate around Los Angeles. He
made Willie open his eyes and likely
increased Willie's yearning for tho
championship and all the wealth that
goes with It,
Ritchie and Jones exchanged cour
tesies, but little In tho fight line was
discussed. Terms and arrangements
have been agreed upon, but the pair
will likely have a word or two to say
when tho question of referee comes I
up tonight.
Wolgast can be depended upon to
make his quarters hum once ho dons
his gym suit. Manager Jones has
hunted up a couple of huskies for the
champion to woik on. It is beginning
to look as if tho g'oves will fly fa3t
and thick next week.
FOOTBALL UNDER
MIDNIGHT SUN
They don't call soccer games In
Alaska on account of darkness. No
chance! They start them there at
9.30 o'clock at night, and the players
just keep plugging away as they do
here when the contests are called at
2 30 o'clock p. m.
This was the Interesting news
brought back by Tommy Lydon, the
old-time 3arbarian soccer player, who
has been up in tho wilds of the Alas
kan country for tho last few years.
Tommy captained the Dawson Soc-1
cer club, and another bunch of p!a -ers
was rounded up at Bonanza. A
series of three matches was arranged
Dawson won the first, and Eonanza
then came back with a victory All
tho fans were excited and when the
final game was called at 9:30 o'clock
on the night of September 17, Discov-
cry day In Alaska, a record crowd
turned out.
"Well, they beat us 3 goals to 2, '
sighed Tommy, when telling about the
game, '"and they did not even hae.to
hang out any lantenib The sun wjin
shining brightly and we .ill worked up
a great sweat"
KEN HARVEY VAL'UABLE
ACQUISITION FOR OXY
Ken Ilnrvey is. the latest acquisition
to tho speedy aggregation of Occiden
tal track stars now lining up for the
1913 track team Harvey will enter
Occidental in the spring as a fresh
man His work at Moinovla High
school two years ago was little shoit
of marvelous, and ho is expected to bo
a consistent point winner for the Ti
gers next spring Ho also is a crack
ing good baseball man Ho plays first
base and will bo a candidate for that
position on the Occidental team.
HORSEMEN FLAN
A BIG MEETING
The latest announcement to create
a stir In horse circles is a meeting of
all the horsemen of the west at San
Francisco, December 10-14. Tho
meeting will lo held at the Palace ho
tel, San Francisco, and all the men
of note In the horse business in the
west will be in attendance
If this meeting Is held as planned,
some verj vital questions will be J
biourht to a vote. Tho one thing
which will most concern tho race en
thusiasts of this city !g tho attempt'
to have the horses from the western
circuit to winter in Los Angeles
California horsomeu will a'lvoca'e
a plan omoih'ng after this order The
western circuit holds its last race
meet on the El Paso track All the
horses from the circuit could be taken
over to tho Phoenix fair and from
(hero brought on to Los Angeles
where the grand finn'e of tho season
could be held on the Exposition track
Then the plan would be to make
Los Angeles the winter quarters for
those horses. There are several good
reasons, from the horseman's point of
iew. for this change in their plans
In the first place, they desire a great
deal of racing in order to condition
their horses, and they can get it
there, because of the ideal climate
Alto with all of the horses wintered
in Los Angeleb, conditions would be
idoal for breeding a great many fine
lacers.
Such nn arrangement would furnish
the Los Angeles horse enthusiast with
tho ery best in the racing game
and lots of class all during the winter
months on the park track Final ar
langements in legard to the holding
of the mooting will be made at the
conclusion of the Hemet laces
GRANEY TO PUT ON
TEN-ROUND BOUTS
Losing out In his efforts to secure
Willie Ritchie and Frankie Burn3 for
his big caid will not stop Promoter
Eddio Graney from staging some hort
of a boxing show this month He has
not determined on the program, but
it will likely be a series of ten-round
bouts Frankio Burns may be one of
the principals and the four-round per
foimers will have a chance to show
their class over a longer route.
OCCIDENTALS MAY
TAKE UP BASKETBALL
Occidental basketball players are
not to be disappointed if they wish to
form a basketball team and play out
side teams. Captain Andrew Stewart
md Coach Pipal conferred on the mat
tor and it was found that many of tho
men who v.ould figure in basketball
this season would rather start In on
t-ack work Therefore, baskothall as
a collcgo sport was wiped awaj But j
those who wish to play the ?amo who
will not entei track work will be al
lowed to form a tenni.
HOPPE HOLDS LEAD
N IN BILLIARD MATCH
New Yoik, Nov 17. Willie Hoppe,
the present title holder now has the
undisputed lead in the IS 2 balk line
billiard championship tournament bo
Ing played at tho Hotel Astor. By
defeating Cahin Demarest last night
after Kodji Yamada had defeated Ora
Morningstar in the afternoon Hoppe
jumped Into the lead and looms up as

tho most likely winner of the tournament-
A strange feature about this is that
it was Yamada who pulled Hoppe
down in his standing by defeating him
and it was Yamada who boosted him
Into the lead by defeating Morning
star, who had preiously tied with
Hoppe for tho honors.
The week's play has ptoved several
things. First of all, u has proved
that Kodji Yamada of Japan is ono of
the most spectacular players to watch
In nction Ho has a fault which ap
pears to affect all the players com
peting for the title ho plays In
streaks At times he has shown form
that Is unbeatable and at other times
the has scorned onlj a trifle better
than a short stop player This, how
ever, has been true of all tho players,
including Hoppe In all of the cham
pion's games he has started out
strongly, but townrd the close of
practically every ono of his matches
ho has slowed up In nis work. His
execution has been bad and his ability
to gather tho balls and "nurse" them
has also suffered
If Yamada wore as perfect In all of
his work as lie is in making masso
shots he woi d be the greatest bil
liard player of all time Ho plays tho
masso In preference to simple draws
almost continuallj, and U1I3 fact alone
has made him popular with the large
galleries which nave attended the
matches.
