Just before 7 oclock tonight Clark the Australian sprinter climbed high up
on the outer edge of one of turns and shot down into the saucer again at the
top of his speed Before the field could get under way he had opened up a I
lead of a quarter of a lap and a desperate scramble followed
Trainers swarmed around the railing pushing out fresh partners and for a I
time it seemed that all the riders were on the track at once For twenty minutes
the furious drive held unslackened among such confusion that the scorers had I
difficulty in reckoning the distance i
When the men grouped themselves in
some semblance of order again it was
announced tha Cannon and Krebs Mit
ten and West Anderson and Vanoni
Hill and Stein Galvin and Keegan and
the two George had lost a lap and that
the leaders were fourteen miles and four
laps ahead of the record Demara fell
exhausted from his wheel just after he
was relieved
At 10 oclock the men had gained an
other mile and three laps on the record
with positions unchanged

Between 11 aixl 12 oclock last night one
of the best sprints ever seen in the gar

and the riders tore around the track at a
terrific pace while thousands of onlook
ers cheered frantically The sprint lasted
twelve minutes and when the riders
stopped speeding the score showed that 1
Galvin and Keegan had lost a lap in the
wild scramble This team entered a pro I
test At midnight those in the van were
credited with 14398 miles a lead of
206 miles on last years record and a

Dallas Tex Dec SWith his face wrapped in woolen bandages and
wearing heavy fur gloves and fur overcoat Barney Oldfield drove his
120horsepower Benz racer in the teeth of a Texas norther this after
noon and broke the fiftymile worlds circular track record which has
stood for over five years He covered the half century in 4718 as
against the old mark of 48 40 15 made by himself at Fresno Gal in
1904 Oldfield got inside the previous record at 30 miles and broke
everv mark from 30 to 50
Oldfield drive was most spectacular as
the track was frozen in places and the
radiator of his car was filled with alcohol
to prevent freezing At the finish of the
drive Old fields hands had to be pulled
loose from the steering wheel by his as
sistants having been affected by the In
tense cold at such a high speed

Chicago Dec 8Ted Sullivan the
veteran baseball man is to open a
bureau for the supply and demand
of players The institution to be es
tablished with headquarters in room
1001 Corn Exchange bank building IB
to be styled the American Baseball
agency and special attention will be
given the minor leagues Ball tower
reared In the smaller circuits need
entertain no fears In the future over
the whereabouts of their next meals
Sullivans agenc will cater particu
larly to the finding of jobs for the
good players who are running at
Heres the mode of procedure ac
cording to plans mapped out yester
day by Mr Sullivan Vacancies are
bound to arise among all ball clubs
during the heat of the pennant races
Players become ill many are released
outright others Jump their contracts
and in various ways the managers of
the various teams frequently find
themselves up an alley for material
Sullivans agency will do the worK
according to the veteran Ted
The clubs as weir eJt the players
will be protected said Sullivan and
while I expect most of the calls for
players will come from the minors
there doubtless will be many demands
from the majors By this means man
agers communicating with me can get
a good player on short notice Oft
times a catcher will break a finger and
the club of which he is a member will
need another backstop on a days no
tice It wont take a moment to
round up a good substitute for that
club The same applies to pitchers or

W D Rishel who with Tex Rickard handled the presentation of the
I successful bid for the JeffriesJohnson fight at New York and Hoboken
i returned to Salt Lake yesterday Big Bill as Rishel is widely known ia
I Utah sporting circles showed the effect of the hard trip he had had the
matter of beating the coast promoters out for the plum being no easy
I matter he said
When asked if the fight would come to Salt lake Rihel said
When I left New York after the bids had been opened and Rick
ards bid accepted Tex told me that he favored Salt Lake for the contest
and that this city would have first ohance to secure the big battle He
did not say however that he would attempt to pull the contest off here in
face of opposition but that the town could have it above all other cities
in the country if it wanted it
Asked about the fight situation at the
present time Rishel continued The I
whole east can talk of nothing else but
the fight In New York as well as in
Pittsburg Cleveland Chicago and the
other cities where we stopped it was
the sole topic of talk so far as anything
in sports was concerned And the best
part of the talk was that everywhere the
feeling was strong for Salt Lake
Salt Lake is being talked of more
than any other city in the country just
now The fans say that It is the logical
enter for the fight Business men say
that with the fight in Salt Lake instead
of on the coast it will save them three
days time and they want to come here
lou would be surprised to learn of the I
advertising Salt Lake is getting People
art asking about our city all the time
and especially what is it that is making i
It to the front fast I
come so They say
that a few years ago it was Chicago
Denver and the coast cities but now Salt
Lake is being added when the west is
talked of
If T had one I had a hundred say
I wish my town had gotten Into the
game and gone after the fight Salt Lake
certainly is a live one
The Best Bids
As to how Rickard came to get the
fight it was simply the question of the
best bid Both Jeffries and Johnson went
Into all the bids carefully and selected
Rickards because they thought it would
bring them the most money Aside from
the 101000 purse It was the picture clause
that got them Johnson has had experi
ence in a share in the pictures before I
and says that he has a lot of enoney
coming yet Now the three Rickard
Jeffries and Johnson have onethird in
the pictures which of course gives the
fighters the control The picture deal
started all the talk of private agreements
which aside from the division of the pic
ture receipts as I have stated had noth
ing further to do with the fight itself
or to change the articles as originally
drawn up
Gleasons name appears with Rick
ards but unless the fight goes to San
Francisco Oleason will have nothing 16
do with the bout Rickard bas the thing
himself and he is the man who will
name the place for the fight As I said
he wants to stage it in Salt Lake
Coast Fought Hard
One thing was heard on the streets
in New York above all others except
the main questions the efforts being
made by San Francisco and Los Angeles
to get Rickard to stage the fight with
them Rickard received all kinds of flat
tering offers petitions from bankers and
business men came tat by the hundreds
They said they must have the fight ap
a business investment and they were
willing to pay for it Nevada also got
in line with many of Rickards old min
ing friends there to land the go if pos
sible for a Nevada mining camp
In every city I stopped they said We
will have a special train for Salt Lake
sure Wherever the fight is held there
will be thousands of visitors from the
east and they plan to make a stay as
long as possible
I saw Jeffries in action with a spar
ring partner on two occasions and he
looks in good shape now While there
is yet some weight to come off he ap
pears In no different light than any
heavyweight training for a go I am
sure he will be in shape when the tinfo
Jeff himself says little Berger does
all the talking and all the work on the
business end On the other hand John
son is his own business manager and
keeps track of everything that goes on
He seemed afraid that they were going
to give him the worst of it in some way
and was very careful before he signed
his name He told me however that he
was sure of getting a square deal from
Salt Lake and Rickard
Rickard went to Boston after the ar
rangements were completed but will be
here within a short time He worked
hard for Salt Lake and with the excep
tion of the coast delegation the people
were glad that Salt Lake von out
