George Tyler is rated as about one-
third of the Boston Nationals. The
team is said to consist of one pitcher, ;
one second baseman and a manager.
It would not be eurprising if Man
ager Stall lngs fooled the critics, as
nothing much is expected of him II
has plenty of Individual ability ami
batting strength In the club, but needs
team work and reliable pitchers.

j than both Perdue and Hess His us
I erage was .353, having won 12 and ,
lost 22 games. It does not sound j
much like the record of a star, but

The fans of Salt Lake are greatly
pleased at the announcement of 11c-

ices of "Tippn' Huelsman. The big
man hit JS8 last year, occupying sec

Salt Lake. March 19. After having
been on the train constantly for thu
past four days, Joe Turner, who wres
tles Mike Yokel in the Auditorium to
night, arrived yesterday looking as
fresh and chipper as If he had just
come from his training ijuartors The
very first thing be did after agreeing
with Mike thai Ben Harker was a
good referee, was to hurry over to the
fire station to set the stiffness out of
his muscles. He worked with young
Crabbe Nathan and another wrestler
Incidentally, Turner said after wrest
ling with Crabbe that the youngster
at. a c onv i
Yokel and Turner looked at each
other curiously watching gestures
walk and everything that could pos
sibly give an indication of strength or
agility Turner will take another
light workout this morning and then
after weighing In at 158 at 3 o'clock,
ho will go on the mat with Mike, di
rectly after the preliminaries which
begin at 8 15 o'clock are finished
Turner looks the part of a cham- I
plonshlp wrestler and he has a lot at
Stake in this match, for he has signed I
with Al Reeves for a big tour in Eng
land and France, providing he brings
the championship back from Utah If
he loses to Mike the contract Is in
Turner in the last five years has
undoubtedly thrown more men than
any other wrestler in the world, for
most of this time he has spent with
theatrical burlesque shows, challen
ing and meeting the best men in the
cltieB where the show was playing
Sometimes he has thrown three a
night and hardly B week has passed
.hat he hns thrown less than an aver
age of one a day
ThlB does not mean, however, that
he has not met and conquered some
','f the best professionals, for he has
Both in England and In America
Turner has defeated the best men
they could find for him, Yokel -x
cepted. If Yokel had lived In the i
east they undoubtedly must have met
long before this.
Turner estimates that In the last
five years he has thrown 1000 oppo
nents. Only last Friday night he pinned
the shoulders of big Hassan Youssouf,
the 1&0 pound wrestler who was in
Salt Lake last summer, to the mat
In straight falls of nineteen minutes
and seven minutes Some of Turner's
best recent victories follow
Walt Evaus, champion of the south.
Turner won In three hours and fifty
sewn minutes last Thanksgiving day
at Knoxville, Tenn.
Jim Prokos, the "Greek Demon," of
Boston Turner won In forty-one min
utes and seven minutes. December 12,
Paul Bowser at Pittsburg Decembot-
19,1912. Turner won in SI minutes
and 11 minutes.
Walter Willoughbov at Boston. Ap
ril 6. 1H12 Turner won in one hour
and twenty-seven minutes and the
j second fall in six minutes
Bob Barry in Londou, Eng Turner
won In 21 minutes and four minutes
Tom Du Chesne, London, Eng Tur
ner won In 51 minutes and 19 minute.
Jack Winthrop. London Wlnthrop
won first fall In four minutes Turner
then won second fall in one hour and
forty-one minutes and the third fall
In one minute and 47 seconds
The list might be extended indef
inite! If experience can make a
wrestler surely Turner has had .ill
When asked If he noticed the alti
tude at all. Turner said his mouth felt
dry and his throat a trifle sore, but
he thought that was the natural re
sult of traveling so long. He believi
the altitude will not affect him at nil.
He Is 26 years of age and weighs
about 154 pounds
Despite the fact that they are at
the top of the middleweight heap Yo
kel and Turner gave no evidences .if

so man champions show W'hrn th -y

Ben Harker after only a few minutes
discussion Both men were wholly
reasonable and neither acted at all
like the average champion.
Yokel Is in the ery best shape pos
slble for this match, and while his
confidence Is what a champion's
should he, he knows he will have to
work hard Turner Is just as confi
dent Both men have won so many
times that they are not worrying now

The fight which took place a short
time ago In Paris between Billy
Papke and Frank Klaus has surely
stirred up a hornet's nest in sporting
circles. Recent reports state that
Papke repeatedly fouled Klaus, and
after being warned h the referee
numerous times he was disqualified,
Of course wc must give Klaus credit
for a win, but at the same time we
I must remember that Papke is a good!
1 man and capable of doing better.
Klaus has always been noted for be
lag a rough lighter, but, according to
amices, Papke made him look like an
amateur at that style of milling
Hence the referee's Intervention.
W hat is the use of censuring a man
when he makes a mistake" Probablv
Papke figured that he was so well
liked in France that he could get bj
with almost anything, but when he
became too raw In his methods he
found that he was sadly mistaken
The Kewanee man was the favorite
In the betting, and held the title of
middleweight champion of France
But he failed to beat the husky fel
low from the smoky city.
Al the same time Papke is not to
he censured too severely True he
foulPd, and as the fans do not like
I thr.t, Papke must bear the brunt of
his mistake
Now the question of the title Is
sifted down to the same place that It
i was several months ago. Many crlt-
I les figure, that the winner of the
Paris bout would be the most logical
man to fight for the title which wa
left vacant by the death of Stnnlev
Ketchel At the present time Eddie
HcGoorty seems to have the best
claims on the title, but he also has;
been fighting In and out. and when
tlms-. facts are taken into considera- j
ti 1 1 it Is hard to figure who Is the
I best man However, all Indications
point toward a meeting between Klaus
and BIcGoorty .
II Klaus can make the weight and
bfl strong he Is liable to beat any mid
dleweight in the world, and the samel
can be said of McOoortv But these1
fellowa like to chent the srales and i
weigh In at about ifW to If.", pounds,
when ther know that the weight Is
18 pounds. Nevertheless. Klaus and
McOoortv would furnish a very goo 1
bout, and the winner would hne the
best claim to the title nf middleweight
champion. No matter who mav crlfi-!
c'ze them, it is up to the promoters to I
st- t'.e the matr-h
Then one of the most perplexing
questions of the pugilistic world
would be settled, and If I were to
venture an opinion as to the financial ,
prospects, 1 would say tlui they (
would draw n tremendous crowd.
