THOMPSON READY FOR GO
Gust Ptpa, Barefoot Wrestler, Puts
en Some Exhibition and May
Fifteen pounds advantage in weight
grave Jesse Blaymaker, the Albany far
mer, just enough advantage over Shor
ty Gamble of Burlington, to allow htm
to win the match at the Illinois the
atre In double quick time last night
and thereby hang another defeat on
Shorty's enviable record. There was
some sort of agreement between the
wrestlers to make 143 pounds, but
Jesse tipped the beam before the au
dience at 15S'4 pounds, while Gamble
only made 141. A half nelson and
crotch did the business for the first
fall In 12:13. The second fall was ac
complished In just five minutes with a
full body hold. During the second fall.
Gamble secured a head lock and it
looked as though he would make it a
go, but his weight was insufficient and
the bald pate of the Albany lad he's
35 years old slipped thronph the lock.
Slaymaker is fast, knows the game and
has the weight. Gamble, just as short
as his cognomen Implies, knows as
much about the game. There is no
doubt but what he can handle
anyone within five pounds of
Us weight, for he is a husky fellow.

Members of Company A of the Illi
nois National Guard will have a splen
did trip before them this summer as
the 6th regiment, of which they are a
part, has been ordered to Join in a ten
day encampment with portions of the
regular army at Sparta, Wis. Adju
tant General Dickson yesterday gave
out orders to that effect. The date
of the maneuvers at Sparta has Jiot
yet been announced. The 3d regiment
has also been selected for the Sparta
maneuvers, while the remaining in
fantry regiments of the state will have
the.ir annual encampments at Spring
field. The cavalry regiments will make a
practice march out of Chicago, begin
ning July 5, and the battalion of ar
tillery will participate in joint ma
neuvers with the regular army at Fort
LOCALS ARB IM.KAE.
To say that the local guardsmen are
pleased with their prospective trip is
putting it mildly. For years back the
Cth regiment has hoped annually for
orders to participate in maneuvers
with the regular army, but these were
blasted annually. At last the Cth is
to have its turn.
As a result Company A will proba
bly experience a boom in membership
as many will want to join if only for
the experience of being a portion of a
real army in an almost real campaign.
Because of the necessity for having
an efficient company, however, recruit
