SPORT VIEWS and REVIEWS O I'Mi: two VI three weeks ago there were printed on this pags * ssrtss of telegraphed articles relating first the alleged Intention of Ralp Rose. tin champion hammer-thrower to enter the boxing arena, next the teetliuon) of Rattling Nelson, m which he stated that he had faith In the lollegian's ability, and finally an Interview with •t member of the American Olympic team In whtch 1 *J HhijK he said that Ralph Roee was a coward and could xtvs i/emoV be bluffed by any midget with a little sand. These articles have been, as usual, worked over ’’ 11 ' ♦ by a local contemporary and considerable Interest Is manifested It l*etrolt regarding what must be regarded ae the scant poa slt'illts of Itose * taking a whirl 1 at the title which Is now the proudest pos* Session of n gentleman of color who iccently snatched It from Tommy Burns. Among those who have been Interested all along Is William Martin Heston, captain of the Michigan football t* tin during Rose's brief term at the Wolverine school. Willie, while hardly Inclined to take Rose's efforts ssrl* ously. indignantly resents that charge of cowardice. if ltos< e\ er let any midget bluff him —or any big man either, for that matter '• he suys, "and It can be proved to tot, I'll buy the man with .the evidence the best dinner he ever sul down to and let him Invite all bis friends. Ralph will tight; 1 have seep him In action And as a boxer, he Is the best amateur 1 ever set eyes on. He tnay not be In the class of Jeffries und Johnson, but 1 do know that, while he was attending Michigan, thera was nobody In college who could stand before him. "When Ralph tlrst struck Michigan. Tom Hammond was acknowledged the best man with the boxing gloves, which the school could boast. Tom was some figure of a man himself, being six feet two In his stockings and weighing close to l»o pounds, always In the pink of condition. Tom and Frank Longman used to box two or three times a week regularly, and I've seen a lot of professionals that didn't look half so good as they did. Both of them were fast, strong and good boxers. ' Well. when Ralph tirst hit Ann Arbor, he had a pretty good opinion of himself ami wasn't backward about letting It be known. He told his friends hod often boxed with Fitzsimmons and Jeffries, and they didn't bellsvs it. Asa sort of try-out and to gratify those who were unxious to see the con ceit token out of big Ralphle, a coterie of football men arranged a meet ing up on the third tloor of the gymnasium, between the shot putter and Hammond. “Rose wasn't a bit slow to accept. * , “1 saw that bout and 1 know wliut I am talking about when I say that Ralph simply toyed with Hammond. Tom never so much as laid a glove on the big fellow in all the three rounds, and. had there been any decision to be given, Ralph would have won It by a mile. He was aggressive, moved fust and was plainly holding back most of his strength, us he liked Ham mond and didn't want to hurt hint. “Liter on. Rose and Longman got together. I didn’t see this one but I saw Longman afterwards. He started to mix things up and Ralph stopped him in his tracks, leaving plain evidence of his handiwork, too. ' Don't set that boy down for a coward or a bluffer wben be talks about his boxing He may not be of championship material but anybody as big, as strong, as fast, and as skilled as he Is, has a chance with any man In tbs world and when it comes to courage, I never saw him quail.” Did you know that Tom Mollneaux. sn ex-slave, put out Crtbb, the world's champion back In ISIO, thus antedating Jack Johnson In the performance of fighting his way to the title? In less than a week we will know whether Torn Longboat Is A Cana dian or au American Indian. Two miles may not be till regulation Marathon distance but the competl tl >n over the course from the San Antonio ball park to the hotel where the Tiges will stop, will probably see us many collapses as Dorando ever mada All one of those young pitchers will have to do with the Tigers this year will be to show better twirling ability than Donovan. Mullin, Killian, Sum mers or Willett. There's a fine chance. Opening game at Detroit, April 14. Rattcrles: For Detroit. Summers and Schmidt; for Chicago, White and Sullivan. Eh? Beating our competitors to It, we remark with glee that the high school athletes of Detroit will tie wise to tread warily lest they pinch the Corns of the central board of control.
