medals for the stale amateur title win
ners arrived Sunday and will be present
ed tp the men today The gold medals
for first place are very handsome by

in the state
Yokels Matches
During the year Yokel had three matches
with three of the best welterweight wrest
lers In America He first threw Eddie
OConnell of Portland Pacific coast
champion Next came Stanley Karp the
Kansas City champ and Yokel won He
wound up by throwing Al Ackerman of
Ohio his last victory giving him the
welterweight championship of the world
Yokel won the three matches on straight
falls and not for a moment In any of
them was he in danger of being thrown
Many local followers of the game fa
vored each one of the three men Yokel
wrestled to win His easy victories how
ever have made him practically a unit
ed backing in Utah and he will now be
picked to win against any man of his
weight in the business Even if Gehring
the middleweight champion comes to
meet Yokel the local man will be the
favorite here and that he can win the
middleweight title as well as tfie wel
terweight honor Is believed by the ma
jority of those who have watched his
work on the mat To Yokel and Harry
Heagren who promoted his matches Is
due the reat increase in popularity of
the game In Utah
After his present matches Yokel will
spend the summer on his ranch and will
then return for his work at the Y M
C A He has received many letters of
fering him matches in Kansas City and
Chicago and an eastern trip next year
is possible when he will defend ills title
against all comers
He leaves Wednesday for Logan

MANY COLLEGES i TO
SEND RELAY TEAMS
Athletic Carnival at Pensy Will
Bring East and West t
Together
Philadelphia April Pennsylvanias
athletic management has almost com
pleted arrangements for the sixteenth
annual relay carnival to be held on
Franklin field April 30 and according
to the present outlook all previous
meets will be outdone by this one From
assurances already received practical
ly every big university east of the Mis
sissippi and several beyond that line
will send their best athletes The east
ern teams which are virtually sure to
be on hand include Yale Columbia
Princeton Cornell Dartmouth and
probably Harvard while from the west
will come Michigan Chicago Illinois
Wisconsin and several others In addi
tion there will be hundreds of athletes
on hand from every school and college
of importance in the country
There will be three championship re
lays at one mile two miles and four
miles and they carry with them the
intercollegiate championship of Amer
ica It Is the general belief that the
University of Michigan will make
heroic efforts to win back its laurels
In the fourmile event When Penn
sylvania won this race in such sensa
tional fashion last year it was the first
time that Michigan had ever been
beaten at four miles
It is expected there will be a great
fight in the onemile race and that
this event will draw more entries than
any of the others It is expected that
Princeton with the best lot of quar
termllers In her recent history will
concentrate her best efforts here and
if Harvard sends down a team she will
probably do likewise for the Crimson
is stronger in this event than in any
of the others Both Michigan and Chi
cago are likely to prove strong con
tenders here Last year Chicago won
the event beating Michigan in almost
the last stride
In the two miles Yale and Pennsyl
vania will propably > a the strongest
contenders Yale won the event last
year in almost recordbreaking time
The special events will be the same as
a year ago namely 100yard dash 120
yard hurdles broad jump high jump
hammer throw shot put pole vault and
discus throw
YOUNG OBJECTS TO
BEING CALLED OLD
Veteran Pitcher Says Hes as
Good as Ever and
Tells Why
Cleveland April 17Cy Young Is
limbering up for his twentysecond
year In the big baseball leaguestwen
tytwo years of pitching at that and
always at the top of the heap
The public refers to me as Old Cy
Young said the master Well I am
43 years of age but I am younger in
every way than thousands of men of
25 or 30 who havent taken care of
themselves
In the first place I have never
abused my body Ever since I first
made good in baseball I have realized
that to remain good I must watch my
ps and qs
I dont stop work In the fall when
the season closes and allow myself to
grow fat and soft When an athlete
who expects to be in the harness year
after year does that he makes one big
mistake
S
When the season is over I go to my
place at Peoli and split logs make re
pairs chop wood look after the stook
and keep myself in pretty good shape
so that when reporting time comes I
can begin training without the same
suffering that so many players com
plain of
Of course I dont mean that oman
must work like a slave all winter There
are plenty of relaxations that can go
with a little good exercise
I have come to Hot Springs for sev
eral years According to my way of
thinking Its a mistake to play ball un
til the baths hive cleaned out the whole
system This is the scheme I have fol
lowed and it has been successful
I wouldnt try to put speed on a ball
until I had been limbering up for three
or four weeks By this time I have
shaken off most of the Weight I take on
during the winter and the walking has
put my legs back and stomach muscle
in good shape S
I am strong for running Its great
for endurance I dont think I am fit
unless I can run three miles in heavy
clothes without being winded
Along In July and August when its
hot and the sun weakens most people
these long runs and hard work I do
here stand by me and I can stand up
without being tired out

FULLE TOt SAYS BOSiO J
Will LAND FflRST PLACE
BY HUGH S FULLERTON
I I
Chicago April 17 Boston Philadel
phia Detroit Chicago Cleveland New I I
York Washington and St Louis this Is
the way I pick the American league team
to finish
Chicago hopes for another pennantwin
ning team There never was any
thing more than a faint hop that a new I
team thrown together in one year of
gleaning of the minor leagues could win I I
but the disastrous trip to California has
almost destroyed that hope
I I
No team of young players ever won a
pennant but we all hoped Comiskey by
gathering in the cream of the minor I I
leagues had paved the way to the de
struction of tradition but trying to change I
climates twice a day training on railway
trains and in hotels on bad grounds and
in worse weather have set the Sox back I I
a month By June 15 they will be one of
the best clubs in the country but by that
time I think it will be too late 1
The American league is the hardest
proposition to dope out this season of any
league In baseball history Five clubs are
be > ng remade from new material One is
being patched up and the other two are
clubs rebuilt last season besides that
three managers are new and two others
are makeshifts
Calculating on the basis of speed alone
speed on bases and In the field the teams
rank Chicago Boston Philadelphia De
troit Cleveland New York Washington
and St Louis Several of the relative po
sitions may be altered by putting new
men into regular positions but if the
changes are made the teams will lose in
experience what they gain in peed
Calculating on hitting the toams rank
Detroit Boston Cleveland Philadelphia
Chicago New York St Louis and Wash
ington In fielding the teams ought to
rank Philadelphia Detroit Chicago
Cleveland Boston St Louis Washing
ton and New York
On managtrs the teams will rank De
troit Chicago Philadelphia Boston I
Washington New York St Louis and
Cleveland On the balance of teams and i
team work it looks as if Chicago PhHa1 i
delphia and Detroit are more closely
matched than the others and In that re
spect Boston does not look so well being
erratic and its success depends largely
upon how well Patsy Donovan get his I
fast but rather erratic bunch to work
together
Based on the Idea that the team is as
strong as its weakest point St Louis
Washington and New > ork look utterly
hopeless Chicago baa the closest bal
anced team but much must be deducted
In calculating on the race for the inexpe
rience of the team also it has not lived
up to its minor league promise of hitting
and the fact that it Is certain to start the
season In poor condition affects the Soxs
chances I

Manhattan Club Card looks Good on
I PaperInterest in
Headliner
From the way the amateur boxing fans
are talking about the Manhattan club
bouts scheduled for tonight there will be
a packed house at the Salt Palace arena
In the headliner between Kid Ross of New I
York and Kid Bell of Salt Lake the most
interest centers and the backers of each i
boy are about equal In numbers Ross is j i
a tough one with a punch that will do1
the business if it lands Bell is one of th
cleverest lightweight boxers in the state I
and if he can keep away from Ross has J
the call on the decision Both boys have
trained hard for their meeting tonight and
should be able to set a fast pace all the
way
The headliner how ° ver is far from be
ing tve nH r al bOIt as t four oth rs
look equally good I In Kid Uple of Pueblo A
the Colorado fane say that Tommy Fitz
gerald will find mor than a match Opie
is an old timer and has a reputation for
great cleverness
Tommy Sullivan the other veteran
meets Young Erne Erne after his vic
tory last week says he can beat them all
Eddie Johnson the Pueblo lightweight
and Kid Irish a find backed by Tony
Arnold will also meet at 130 pounds
Ike Cohen the clever Denver welter
weight makes his second appearance in i
Salt Lake this time against Jim Burris i
a local welterweight who is said to be a
fireeater Cohen has made many backers I
since he struck town and if hewins to
night Is sure to be a popular card at the
club E A Dunham is looking after
Cohens interests and says he will gjve the
Denver boy all the chance in Lie world fo
make good
WIHIard Bean the club referee will
start the proceedings at 830 p m
CASTLETON IN SHAPE
Roy Castleton the Utah pitcher now

In a letter to Manager Heagren of
the Salt Palace track received yester
day Ray Duer the coast motorpace
follower writes that he will be glad
to get back to Salt Lake and get on the
track again Duer says tha he was
far from satisfied with the showing
ho made last season in Salt Lake and
Is anxious to show the fans what he
can dQ behind a motor
Despite his showing here Duer Is om
of the best motorpace men in the
game and his records on the big tracks
on the coast are at the top of the col
umn Last season coming from a
threelap track to an eightlap track
Duer found the handicap too much to
show his real form Starting in early
this season however at the Salt Palace
he should get the track down and make
them all go In the paced races
Work on getting the track in shape
for the season has been started and
many improvements will be seen Of
the changes that will be appreciated
by the fans will be additions to the
grand stand seats and a new lighting
arrangement
