Ogden Nov 17After last Satu days
victory over Granite the Ogden High
school football team has gotten down to
real hard drilling and the boys are work
Ing overtime getting In shape to give the
Salt Lake High a severe drubbing on
Thanksgiving day It is generally con
ceded that Captain Douglass will not be
in the game any more this season HIs
knee although not troublIng him greatly
Is In such shape that another game this
year will probably leave him a cripple
and It is thought fiat Coach Brown will
not sacrifice the man for a game
The rest of the team realize the extent
of the loss of Squaw and they are
working all the harder The game the
east benchers put up last week was a
surprise to Granite and also to some of
the local sports and If they progress as
rapidly this next week as they did last
week Salt Lake will not have a ghost of
a show
Reports from Salt Lake say that al
though that team defeated Pason by an
overwhelming score they are not allow
Ing the grass to grow under their feet
and are working hard to duplicate the
trick here They are not giving any al
lowances for surprises and are not letting
up on their daily training

pile his bank roll dwindled away just as
the bank rolls of other fighters melted
Into nothing When Bob departed a tear
glistened In his eyes as he madl the
damaging admission that he was going
to Australia to tight because he knew
both Americans and Britons would never
pay to see him again In the ring If Bob
can ever reinstate himself with nature in
a degree sufficient to hop the ropes It
will be the eighth wonder of the world

1ly defeat at the hands of 1Ir Gotch I
compels me to make a statement to the
American people through the Post which
has treated me with the greatest consid
eration and fairness since I have been in
this country Especially to Italian real
dents I would address my remarks I
want to thank them all for their grand
support when I needed it
When I decided to come to America
to challenge Mr Gotch and do what
Hnckenslhmldt and Pierris Turk had
failed to do 1 ad but a faint Idea Jt
the Americm style of wrestling I be
lieved that a very strong man with real
ability at the GraecoRoman style of
wrestling which permits oC holds only
above the belt would be able to defeat
the Americans no matter how good they
were After the proof offered me fn last
nights match I have changed my rpm In
Ion In tills regard and I am not a bIt
afraid to say that not one oC EIJopes
champions will be able to defeat Frank
Gotch In the catchafrCatchan style
I am free to admit that Frank or h
Is the greatest living wrestler lit till
style although I wish Zbyseo and the
rest of them well hi their attempts to
down him
Still I believe that I am as good i
wrestler at my on stylebelieve me as
you say here that I am sorry I cv
forsook Itall there Is In thE worJd Itl <
It given a chance at It In this ountl
will demonstrate to my countrnnen and
the vast army of Americans who follow
athletics that I can best any mar living
nobody barred
That Is why I am Issuing this doRI
lenge and hope the Post will help IRe get
the match or mat bel
The only conditions r would impose
In making such a match or matches hi
that a man thoroughly afl1ualllted with
the GraecoRoman roles wOld IIct as
It Is unfortunate for this really Ieasant
Italian that the ecoRomBa style of
wrestling is not popular In this cclntr
To be frank about the matter it hcks
the action so asentlal to thE American
who insists upon action and plenty of it
at aU times
But you have to give it to Ralcekl1
for being a manly fellow Also give it
to him for knowing when be has enough
