FLOD OF THE CASH TURNEI LOBS ON FLYNN VETERAN WHITE HOPE, ONCE SHORT-ENDER, IS FAVORITE IN THE BETTING. ODDS ARE AT 10 TO 8 Nat Goodwin Among Those Backing McCarty, While Ad Wolgast and His Manager Place Their' Faith in the Lighter Man. Los Angeles, Dec. 9.--A flood of (Flynn money was turned loose today and the Puablo fireman, who a few days ago was a short-ender in the betting in his match against Luther Mcc'arty to.morrow night, became a 10-to-8 favorite. Not in years has a local fight been preceded by such heavy betting. Among those that have been backing McCarty heavily are Nat Goodwin, the actor, and a number of the San Fran cisco delegation while the veteran's heaviest individual hackers have been Ad Wolgast, former lightweight cham pion, and his manager, Tom Jones. McCarty money appeared to be scarce tonight and it was predicted that ringside odds would be around 10 to 6. There has been itmuch spoken as to Flynn's weight. It was announced first that he would enter the ring at about 185 pounds, but it was an nounced today that the fireman weighed 187 1-2 and would go into the ring at 19il. McCarty is expected to weigh between 202 and 205. Another reason for the outpouring of Flynn money was the verdict of ex parts who have watched' McCarty'2 recent workouts. They declare that he not only lacked experience but also sufficient knowledge of boxing and that he vritually will have no defense against Flynn's aggressive style of fighting. The young giant's admirers insist that he can withstand any pun. ishment that Flynn can inflict and that the veteran must succumb to Mc t'artys powerful hitting. AS IT LOOKS Let's can "for the balance of 'the winter." That's what you have - or haIve not--at the bank. As to McCarthy and Flynn, the only thing that interests us is where Luther had that combination of names wished on him. We don't know where the Spokes man-Review found this one, but here it is: Speaking qf Ritchie in the Turkish bath recalls one which is being told In 'San Francisco with much glee by the followers of Ad Wolgast. He came out of the contest with but few, indica tions of having lost his title, but Ritchie had both eyes closed and h}is face was badly bruised and swollen. While in the Turkish bath Ritchie came in contact with a bibulous per son who had retired to that retreat with the obvious intent of "boiling out." "Whateha matter, ktddo?" inquired thei inebriated one, "been in a fight?" lHe was informed that Ritchie had just won the world's lightweight championship. "If you won, kiddo," said the festive one, "I'd like to see the loser after my stomnach gets a little stronger." Add i. o. n. t. d.-lpicking all-state footlball teams. Net Goodwin has his roll on Mc Carthy and Jack Johnson is betting on ,'lynn. It's too bad they can't both lose. "GETS-IT" Will Get Any Corn, Sure! Almost Like Magic. Guaranteed. You'll Quit Everything Else for "GETS-IT" Any corn just loves to be cut and gouged but it's mighty rough on you. Plasters and salves usually take away some of the toe with them, and leave the corn to flourish. The new corn cure "GETS-IT" is per fectly harmless to the healthy flesh, but it does go for a corn, bunion, cal lous or wart right off the reel. The corn shrivels away from the healthy flesh and drops off. You can apply "(GETS-IT" In two seconds and it begins its work' right off. Pretty soon you'll forget you ever had corns or bunions. "GETS-IT" is sold at all druggists, at 25 cents a bottle, or '." t on re ceipt of price by E. Lawrence & Co., Chicago. Sold in Mtsanula by George Prelshelmer, Missoula Drug Co. and G. F. Peteraon.-Adt. AS AD S 5 IT. Los Angeles Times: Ad Wolgast was around town yestArday lioking lit tle the wrse for hiS' put ,with Ritchie. While he was disappointed in Referee Griffin's ruling he was feeling in good spirit and took his defeat in the right way. "I hardly think' that 'the public will take Willie as a real champion," said Ad. * *' 5 Luther McCarthy has made a hit with Mrs. Isabel Hartell, who is well equipped with real estate and funds, according to sports writers of. the coast. Oh, no, nothing like that. Mrs. -tartell wants to adopt Luther and make a professional man out of him. She has sons of her own who are old er than the fighter. Says Walter' Bratz: Wonder if Vice President Van de Putte of Great Falls is really living in the hope that the association directors will forget to organize this winter? Mr. Van de Putts has dug down pretty deep, as have others of Great Falls, in their pennant winning desire. That dream indulged in by one of the Great Falls directors at a recent league meeting when, after awakening out of a sleep he suddenly exclaimed, "We'll win the pennant if it costs a million," may have come true at both ends. * * * Also, W. D. B. gets away with this in the Salt T.ake Telegram: Under a heading. "Who Wants a -Manager'' a lwouisville paper says: "John J. Mc Closkey is visiting at his home here from Ogden, Utah, where he has been engaged in business. McCloskey is willing to neeotiate with a class AA or class A club requiring a manager who knows the game and is willing to pay a good salary for his services. McCIloskey is an expert developer of young players, and should b6 able to land a profitable contract before spring." The above certainly does not jibe' with the following letter, received from "Honest Mac," written at Louis ville on the 2nd: "I arrived home on Thanksgiving day and will be here until after Christmas, after which' I will return to Salt Lake to assist in the organization of an eight-club league, comprising Great Falls, Helena Butte and Missoula in the north, and olise, Pocatello, Ogden and Salt Lake in the south. According to the pop,'i tation, this will put us in class C. F.ach end of the circuit will make one trip into the other, as I suggested to you before leaving, If the deal can he arranged, I expect to buy the Salt T.ake franchise and leave Ogden to 'Dr,d' Gimlin, to whom it rightfully belongs." * as Dild we ever tell you that Willle Ritchie's name is Gerhard Steffen? No? All right. Hugh Fullerton: Champ Clark Is going to sue the editor who says his fraternity brothers put him to bed. Perhaps the fraternity brothers will testify that he tucked them in and then went on his way. THE WESTERN GIRL. A Moscow dispatch to the Boise News says: "In the contest among the freshmen girls for the cup offered by Physical Director Van der VeeT for the best dynamometer test, Miss Tina M. Clregg of Clak'son, leads with 4.300 pounds. She is closely followed by IMiss Fay Thomas of Coeur d' Alene, with 4,275 pounds. Miss Gregg is a sister of Vean Gregg, the famous left handed' pitcher of the Cleveland Americans, who formerly played at Spokane. An interesting test is 'thai of Miss Anna Wilmot of Wallace, a 17-year-old girl, five feet two and one half inches high, and weighing 13t pounds. This girl tested 3,740 pounds. The average eastern college girl's test is 2,990 pounds. Now that he's licked Bill Lulloff, the Helena papers see in Leo Bens an other Stanley Ketchell. The O. M. says that his i. o. n. t. d. is to eat pine nuts. Washington Herald: "This inn must be very old," remarked the tour 1st. "Very old," asserted the landlord. "Would you like to hear some of the legends connected with the place?" "I would, indeed," said the tourist. "Tell me the legend of this curious old mince pie. I notice it every time I come." Of the Helena team only. Bryan, Byrd, Thompson, Quigley, Killilay and Irhy are available for next year and Madlrice Weiss has offered to release any player who has a chance to bet ter himself. All of which makes us believr that Maurice doesn't think much of his 1912 team. Spike Haynes has been away from Butte and they doped it in Spokane that his visit had something to do with a new league. This is the open season for new leagues. The editor of the Beaver Valley Gaz',ette, advising correspondents, says) "Matter must occur on one side of the paper only." Why not "Happen?" Our idea of nothing to do is to have the tonsilitis, but what are you going to do about it? NEW ATHLETIC MANAGER.

CAL EWING _COMES BACK Says He Owns Only Part of the Oak land Team and Reveals Reason for Sudden Withdrawal of Walter From the Coast League. , Sacramento, Dec. 9.-Little developed today as the result of the outburst last night over the charges of "syndicated baseball" made by former President Walter of the Oakland club, and the heate-d response of J. Cal hiwing. Wal ter was not present today and there was no one to uphold his side of the controversy. The league apparently is solid in its support of Ewing, who insists that he how holds only a minor interest in the Oakland club. The affair was the principal topic of discussion today and the league magnates allowed it to be understood that the batteries were loaded for fir ing if Walter returned to the attack. It now is believed that the threatened rupture in the ranks of the league js a thing of the past. Something Starts. San Francisco, Dec. 9.-The "syndi cate 'baseball" charges, involvihg the San Francisco and Oakland club, which were made last night by E. N. Walter, former president of the Oak land organization, brought forth warm statements today. Walter went into details to sul)port his accusation that Ewing, owner of the San Francisco team, was the secret owner of the Oakland team. Ewing countered with a long statement to substantiate his charges that Walter's resignation was due to his failure to lease to Ewing the present site of the local park upon the expiration of the lease now held by the San Francisqo club. Tom Stevens, one of the owners of the Los Angeles team, asked to be put on record as being strongly opposed to syndicatp ball. "That was one of the things we took "m m g* * I/ gU U. , " S i ".

New York, Dec. 9.-Gaining further on the record in each successive hour, the bicycle riders that started at mid night last night in the annual six-day race, were nearly 10 miles Ahead of the best previous performance when the twenty-third hour score was posted at 11 o'clock tonight. All the original 15 teams were ir tact without a sign of any one falling out, and each was credited wtih 512 miles and six laps. The previous record for 23 hours was 502 miles and nine laps.
