first brought "Wingo to the gaze or
the minor league audiences, writes of
Shreveport, La., January 7.
Mr. August Hermann, Cincinnati, O.
Dear Sir I have just a few remarks
to make to you about "Wingo" Ander
son, the young southpaw from El Paso,
Texas. I have for the last three years
been scout for the Shreveport baseball j
club, and while out in the bush I picked
up this young fellow the latter part of
the season of 190S. He pitched only
two games for us but made a grand
showing; and when he reported last
spring Dale Gear failed to give him a
proper showing and let him get away
from him; but I lay a lot of the blame
to Lee Garvin (catcher), as he seems
inclined to givea youngster no show
ing whatever. Well, a short way to

pions, has spoken and given au opinion
on the outcome of the meeting next
Fourth of July between Jim Jeffries and
Jack Johnson. Physical culture experts,

JEFF. SAYS BLACK
KNOCKED ON HIM
Report That Jeffries Could
Not and Would Not
New York. N. X., Jan. 22. The
Jeffries adherents throughout the
country are thoroughly aroused .over
he report that it is planned to prevent
Johnson scoring a clean knockout
when these heavyweights battle next
July. The story that
visers will throw up the sconce or do
something that will disqualify Jeffries
if he is on the verge of a beating, has
caused a howl that has been heard by
Jeffries in the far west
Jeffries has wired his friends that
the story is being circulated by John
son's friends with the object of "kill
ing" his all-star vaudeville bhow. "He
wants people to believe that I am not
fit to fight him," wires Jeffries. "But
this is a deliberate lie. Johnson, to
win. must knock me cold. I will not
have it said that I was dragged from
the ring to avoid a beating. But that
nigger can never win from me. Til
give him the worst pounding that a
man ever received. In my previous
fights I always held back some steam
because I was afraid of maiming my
opponent. With Johnson, however, I
am not going to hold back anything.
He will receive the limit and just one
punch will lay him so low he won't
get up for an hour."

Here is an r outline -of the story just
enough" to make you want it all.
Two years ago, Mr. John N. Willys was
a dealer in automobiles. There came to him
one day a remarkable car evidently the
creation of a mechanical genius. The sim
plest, sturdiest, smoothest-running car that
anyone around there had seen.
The name of the car was the Overland.
And the price then, $1,250 was as amaz
ing as the car itself.
The sale of this car spread like wildfire.
Each car sold brought a call for twenty
others like it. Old and new motor car
owners came by the score to deposit ad
vance money attracted by the Overland' s
But the cars did not come. And when
Mr. Willys went to the makers he found
them on the verge of receivership.
The genius which had created this mat-

why Jeffries, who never dissipated much, j

now at the age of a man in the prime of i
life, and I look for him to enter the !

ever to beat Johnson. The big negro

any big fellow the ring ever produced.

The New Start
Mr. Willys in some way met the over
due pay roll took over the plant and con
trived to fill his customers' orders.
Then the cry came for more cars from
every place where an Overland had been
sold. As the new cars went out the de
mand became overwhelming. The factory
capacity was outgrown in short order.
Then tents were erected.
Another factory was acquired, then an
other; but the demand soon outgrew all
During the next fiscal year these factories
sent out 4,075 Overland cars. Yet the de
mand was not half supplied.
Dealers fairly fought for preference,
uyers paid premiums. None could -be con

All this without advertising. About the
only advertising the car ever had was what
users told others.
The Pope-Toledo Plant
Mr. Willys' next step was to buy the
Pope-Toledo factory one of the greatest
automobile plants in the country. This
gave him four well-equipped factories just
16 months from his start.
But the Toledo plant wasn't sufficient.
So he gave his builders just 40 days to com
plete an addition larger than the. original
Then he equipped these buildings with
the most modern machinery with every
conceivable help and convenience so that
cars could be built here for less than any
Now 4,000 men work on Overland cars.
The output is valued at $140,000 per day.
The contracts from dealers for this season's
delivery call for 20,000 cars.
Now this man has acquired 23 acres
around his Toledo plant. And his purpose
is to see from this time on that those
who want Overlands get them.
Dealers had ordered 16,000 of the 1910
Overland models before the first car was
delivered. That means that each Overland
sold the previous year had sold four others

This year an Overland better than last

That is because the tremendous production
has cut the cost 20 per cent.
A 25 horsepower car, capable of 50 miles

There are higher-powered Overlands for

. cheap in comparison as the $1,000 model.
The Overlands are unique in simplicity.
They operate by pedal control A ten-year-old

They are made in the same factory, and

lies in the production of 125 cars per dajr.

Milwaukee, "Wis., Jan. 22. As I pre
dicted weeks ago, the Jeffries-Johnson
battle for the heavy weight champion
ship will take place either In ssan Fran
cisco or one or us suburbs. There was
never a chance for it to be held at Salt
Lake City, as the authorities there
stated plainly that a 45 round contest
would not be permitted, and as the ar
ticles of agreement called for that num
ber of rounds it was evident from the
start that there was little prospect of
holding it In the Mormon capital. Jack
Gleason formally came out and an
noiunced that San Francisco will be
the place of the battle and I guess he
knows pretty much what he is talk
ing about. It is not generally known,
but it is a fact nevertheless, that Tex
Rickard had in view the plan of hold
ing the contest at Ely, New, and that
somo big mining men were back of the

James J. Jeffries, with his manager,
Sam Burger, will soon close their vaude
ville tour and will then go direct to
California and prepare for light train
ing in the mountains and wind up a
month before the contest with real
hard work. Jeffries, when here re
cently, stated that his weight was
not bothering him in the least and that
he felt confident that six weeks in the
mountains would bring his condition
to almost a point of perfection as far as
stamina is concerned, and that seems to
be the point on which all the critics
have been fearful about. The boxing
which he has been doing on his vaude
ville tour has helped him immensely in
getting back his judgment of distance
and he claims now that all he needs is
mountain climbing and good rough
work to put him in shipshape when he
meets the negro champion, oack Johnson.
Tommy Ryan, who at one time was
