GIANT ATHLETE STIRRED BY LOSS OF WEIGHT RECORDS
RALPH ROSE HAS
Big Fellow Says He'll Bring
Honors Home Again, but
He Asks for More
A world's champion athlete is more
Sensitive about his records than any
other brand of athlete. It makes no
difference if he be a champion sprinter,
a champion hurdler, a champion jump
er or a champion weight putter—they
all tbr- same when any of their
At present Ralph Rose is training
hard—very hard—and when he is in
•= ; .Hpc for the series of indoor track and
fielri meets next month, Pat McDonald
of New York may have to take a back
seat as a worlds record holder.
The truth of the matter is that our
own giant native son is peeved through
and through that McDonald recently
has broken two of his world's records,
and the big fellow is now after the
of the New York cop. The an
ment in The Call yesterday that
the Y. If. ■'. A., Pastime club and
t cxlub wore arranging their
annual indoor meets was too much for
the athletic nerves of the big fellow,
and he started work immediately under
the care of Trainer Al Lean of the
Olympic dub. #
MIND VOIR K\ I*, pat:
There is a seriousness about the big
Olympiad champion that bodes no good
•.t McDonald's records or those
of any other athlete. Rqm said y*B
that he was glad the indoor sra
ra_ ul'out to oppn and that he
it to wipe the record slate clean.
tibt that the big fellow's
ambition is to get back the IS pound
and 21 pound records that Pat McDon
ald recently took away from him, and
he intends to be in the best possible
condition for recapturing these records
next month. He weighs at present
nearly 300 pounds, and with careful
training expects to be close to 280
pounds by the time the first meet is
ready to take place.
The recent achievements of McDon
ald have been too much for Rose, and
tbe taking away of these two world
• m him has had the same ef
is is noticed when two high spir
ited kids get into an argument and
one puts a chip on his shoulder. Be
taking away these two records from
Rose, McDonald has put a chip on his
shoulder that Ralph is going to knock
off with a big bang.
DEMANDS OF THE LAW
*"1 started serious training this after
noon," said Ralph last night, "and it
will not be my fault if 1 do not bring
both the IS pound and 21 pound shot
put records back to California. Pat
McDonald is a mighty erood man, and I
give him every credit for the two nicks
he has made in my list of records, but
they will not remain in his name very
long. My profession as an attorney
has kept me from keeping in the con
dition that I would have liked, but
from now on I intend to find enough
time to get into the very best condi
tion for the Y. M. C A. meet next
Rose for the present will confine his
training to gymnastic exercises in the
Olympic club gymnasium, and after
two weeks of such hard work will com
bine it with actually putting the in
door shots and weights. He is anxious
to redeem his lost laurels, and further
more _c says lie will not only regain
his records, but will place some of
them at such a mark that they will
stand for years to come. The big fel
low is going after both indoor and out
door records in the coming season and
has great hopes that he will be able
to put his favorite 16 pound shot mark
up to r..**. feet or thereabouts.
TWO GIANTS COMPARED
Though Rope was beaten by MeDon
* Stockholm in the one handed
put, the local man is without
doubt the best man of the two with the*
weights. Rose is consistent, and in
McDonald has not shown to the
same advantage. On June 2 of this
year Rose established a new world's
record for the two handed shot put,
making a distance of 91 feet 10 y»
inches. On that day hs exceeded M
four times. Twice be made SO
inches, once B0 feet 4 inches and
• •nee SI feet, the latte,- distance tying
his worlds record. That was just a
Meek before he left for the Olympiad,
and he is now sanguine that by next
month he will be in just the same great
condition he was in at that time.
I claims that not enough atten
tion is given to weight events by the
promoting meets in this part of
the country. The 16 pound shot, ham
mer throw and 56 pound weight are
about the only events that are regu
larly contended, whereas In the east
odd weights, such as 18 pounds. 12
pounds, 21 pounds', 24 pounds and tt
pounds, are ptit on v the programs at
all times. This is done to encourage
weight men, as the easterners are
anxious to break Rose's various rec
ords in these different events.
NEED MORE WEIGHT EVENTS
•'The local athletic officials." said
Rose, "do not seem to be awake to the
fact that we must develop weight men
out here. The east is doing its best to
break my records, but r am not given
a proper chance to defend myself. 1
am positive that I can add inches to
many of my records and to others I
could add feet. I have done this time
and again in practice, hut unless these
events are on a regular program at an
zed meet, with regular entries,
be unable to break my own
records officially. The result is that by
degrees the east will take away the
records now held by us on this coast.
Tf given a proper opportunity by the
various clubs organizing meets, I am
sure that 1 can beat McDonald's marki
and set new figures that will take con
siderable to beat.''
It is probable that the Olympic club
in Its annual indoor meet will include
several of the odd weight events on
the. program and give Rose the oppor
tunity he desires. The Y. M. C. A. also
will probably put on a couple of other
weights besides the regulation 16
pound event, and the Pastime club will
be asked to put on some special event
in the weights other than the 16
pound shot. This will give the local
man at least a chance to compete with
McDonald, and there is no doubt that
be will hoist some new world's records.

President Comiskey will make only a

spring training season of 191.1. The
program, however, is to keep the Sox

the opening of the Pacific coast season.
Stops at Denver, St. Joseph and other

Comiskey says California is the Ideal
place to train ball players. Weather
conditions may not be perfect, but he
argues they are better than any other
place. The Texas trip last year was
a flat failure.
Both clubs will adopt "sane" train

stops will be lessened, as will the num

clubs hope to bring the players back

YOUNG TENNIS MARVEL
THE TALK OF STANFORD
Hahn Now Up Against Vets
in the Varsity Singles
Special Dispatch to The Call
STANFORD UNIVERSITY, Dec. 3.— I
•Tennis is now occupying the attention .
of local sport enthusiasts. With the j
completion of the Theile handicap
tournament, with the cup In the pos- j
session of Freshman Hahn, the cyno
sure of all eyes is the university singles
championship tourney now in progress.
Five players still remain in the play.
Hahn is the freshman victor and Jones
holds the sophomore title, both having
disposed of their respective class op
ponents. The senior title is still unde
cided. The three remaining senior
contestants are all former varsity stars.
Former Varsity Captain R. L. Murray
will play G. L. Shaul and the winner
of this match will play F. S. Pratt for
the class championship.
Hahn played on an even handicap
basis with Shaul and Pratt, two of the
senior players, and in case either of
them wins the senior contest, Hahn
will have the odds In his favor. Mur
ray played against Hahn in the Theile
tourney with a strong handicap against
him, but this will not be the case if
they meet to decide who is the pre
mier university racket wlelder.
Halm's victory in the Theile tour
ney has been the talk of the campus.
His feat of defeating Pratt and Shaul
in hard contests stamps him as one
of the best tennis players In the uni
versity, and the five varsity players
will have to extend themselves if they
expect to make the varsity tennis team
next semester over this speed burner
of the infant class.
The university and class champion
ship doubles championship tournament
will begin Saturday morning.
