Stamp of Approval
LEON J. PINKSON
Seven thousand persons witnessed
the revival of motorcycle racing at the
Emeryville racetrack yesterday and
gave their stamp of approval upon the
meet by cheering the riders as they
flew past the grandstand in some of the
most exciting events that have ever
been seen in this part of the country.
Dirt track racing of motor vehicles is
always spectacular, and >esterday*s
program virtually offered as many
thrills as there were minutes during a
race. Marty J. Graves of Los Angeles,
who has always been known in "mo«
torbikedom" as the king of dirt track
racers, defended his crown in clever
style, although Lee Humlston gave him
some hard brushes.
Graves, on his fast Indian machine,
crossed the finishing tape first in every
event in which he competed. He
started in the day by taking the first
heat in the three mile professional race
by negotiating the distance in 2:44 2-6,
and doubtless could have made better
time had Roy Shaw, who finished sec
ond, been closer to him down the
home stretch. The pace In the second
heat of' the event was slower, Graves
taking 2:48 2-5 to make the run, and,
like the first heat, he was way in front
when he crossed the finishing tape.
GRAVES ADDS TO LAURELS
Lee Humiston, who was anxious to
take some of the glory away from
Graves, met the champion In a match
race for five miles. Graves let his op
ponent take the lead for the first mile
and a half and then started to over
take him. Before the second mile was
scored Graves assumed the lead and
held that, position easily for the re
mainder of the race, crossing the wire
at the end of the fifth mile in 4:45 4-6.
Tn this event Graves showed his su
perior riding knowledge. He %vouJd.
into the turns, taking them at
nigh speed, and then continue down
t! c straightaways at a fast pace, while
his opponent was forced to shut down
some on the turns and make them
broader, which consumed time.
The final heat of the professional
contest resulted in another match race
between Graves and Humlston as Roy
Shaw, the third rider entered, was
forced to withdraw after the second
mile because of some mechanical trou
ble. Like in their previous meeting
Graves proved to he the master rider
and defeated Humiston easily by his
daring work on the turns. Humiston.
however, pressed him closely on the
straightaways and the race was run in
4:44. with Humiston up closer at the
finish. #
Dudley Perkins came next to Graves
in carrying off winning honors. He
won the three heats In the profes
sional invitational race in exciting
fashion and easily showed himself the
star In his class of riders.
CLEVER AMATEUR RIDERS
Two amateur events were on the
day's program, a five mile and a ten
mile content. The former amused the
crowd because of the slow time made
end the odd positions that the riders
assumed, hut the ten mile event rivaled
the showing of the professional riders.
for it developed into a match race be
tween H. Lorenson and O. Walker.
Louis Frey, who was the only other
entrant In the rare, ran into the fence
In making the far turn and crushed
his foot. This was the only mishap
of the day.
During the entire grind Lorenson
and Walker were so colse together
that a hlanket could have covered
them. It was nip and tuck during
every lap. Once Lorenson was in the
lead, then Walker forged to the front,
and on the tenth mile Walker came
down the stretch about an arm's length
ahead of Lorenson. He maintained that
position until the" edge of the grand
stand was passed, when Lorensen shot
Into first place and won by a wheel's
length.
The program ended with a match
*race between Shaw and Fleckensteln,
in which the former was the victor,
covering the three miles In 3:03. The
race wa.s exciting, as the two riders
were right together for the entire dis
tance.
Frank Carroll. Pan Francisco mana
ger of the Goodyear Tire and Rubber
company, acted as referee, and during
the first part of the meet was kept
busy cautioning the riders from look
ing behind them while racing. R. C
Westover handled the starter's flag. He
is not a Fred Wagner or even a Jim
Houlihan as yet, but as yesterday was
his first try he may Improve. Roy A.
Lee was clerk of the course and de
served praise fop the manner in which
he got the riders ready for the different
events.
On the whole, the meet proved a suc
cess and the spectators stayed until the
last event, despite the fact that it grew
cold and storm clouds gathered.

THE SAN FRANCISCO CALL. MONDAY. DECEMBER 2. 1912.
FIGHT GAME GETS WARM
No Slump—Quite the Reverse
Mandot Due Here Today; May Meet Wolgast on
New Year Day; New Champion's Plans
WILLIAM J. SLATTERY
As a general rule, the fighting game slows down immediately after a big
championship match has been decided, but it is different this time. The
Ritchie-Wolgast affair of last Thursday afternoon apparently has enlivened
the sport instead of putting the brakes on it. Two good matches are in sight,
and unless something unforeseen happens in the meantime Promoter Jim
Coffroth will put them on within the next month. Right now it looks like
Frankie Burns of Oakland and Joe I
Mandot of New Orleans for the firstj
elimination battle, which Coffroth
hopes to stage about the middle of
the present month. Then he hopes
to come right back with the winner
against Wolgast on New Year day.
The faJlen champion already has con
sented to such an arrangement, so
everything looks right.
Already the restless ones have started
to talk about a return match between
Ritchie and Wolgast, and they prob
ably will keep on talking about it until
Hijfh h match has been fixed up or until
Wolgast or his conqueror is beaten.
In Justice to Ritchie, however, it must
be said that he Is entitled to a little
rest and a little of that easy theatrical
money which all newly made champions
collect. He has Just as much of a
license as any of the others to reap the
harvest of his well eartned victory over
the man_ who ruled the lightweight
ranks so long.
RITCHIK SAWS WOOD
Ritchie is not making any promises.
He is very reticent. So Is his mana
ger, Billy Nolan, but from what one
can gather, the new lightweight king
is going over the vaudeville circuit
for a couple of months, after which he
will break Into New York and try his
hand at the short distance game there,
a very profitable stunt, for they are all
eager to see him now.
The native son Is a game lad and a
willing performer, and nobody doubts
but that he will accommodate Wolgast
with a return match, when. he sees tit;
but the fans need not look for this
until the coming summer. Ritchie will
have plenty of easier engagements to
occupy his time during the winter.
Like the rest of them, he is a believer
in the old adage: "To the victor be
longs the spoils.''
WOLGAST STILL SORB
By signing up so promptly with
Coffroth, Wolgast showed that he was
anxious to get back again. The little
fighter, accompanied by Manager Tom
Jones and Mrs. Wolgast, departed for
Los Angeles on the late train Saturday
evenirrg. He was still remorseful and
peeved over his defeat, but at the same
time he was looking forward to the
time when he shall get another crack
at Ritchie.
Wolgast certainly will fight here on
New Year day, provided Coffroth can
rind an opponent for him. If Burns is
willing, he can have the match now,
and Coffroth will pass up Mandot; but
Burns will not listen to the terms that
the promoter made him, although he
says he has backing to the extent of
$5,000 against the former holder of
the lightweight title.
MANDOT DI)E TODAY
Mandot and his manager, Harry Cole
man, are due from Los Angeles this
afternoon. Just as soon as they ar
rive, CoiTroth intends to get hold of
them and make them a couple of prop
ositions. If they are on the level and
are looking for action, they ought to
sign up without any preliminary stall
ing.
Coffroth will offer Mandot an en
gagement with Burns In this city
about the middle of the present month.
Mandot may accept this or he may
prefer to hold out for a match with
Wolgast on New Year day and pass
Burns up. He can get the big money
against Wolgast, while he will have
to gamble if he fights Burns.
v Coffroth would like to put on both
attractions, but he Is afraid that the
winner of the first one either might
hurt himself or else come to the con
clusion that" he is in need of a rest. In
such an event the promoter would be
left high and dry with the ex-champlon
on his hands and no opponent to stack
him up against—a very deplorable
state of affairs.
MAXDOT VS. WOLGAST
For this reason it is about posstble
that the promoter will make Mandot
an offer to fight Wolgast on New Year
day. If this deal comes to pass, Burns
will he left alone among the bushers
again.
The terms that Coffroth offered the
Oakland lad for an engagement with
Wolgast have not been given out, but
It is safe to say that they are reason
able for such a man as the Oaklander.
Because of the fact that Wolgast beat
him once in IT rounds. Burns ought to
be very willing to accept a shoestring
for another chance at his conqueror.
If he really believes he can win. little
Frankie is very foolish to pass up such
a splendid opportunity to fight his
way back to the ground floor of the
challengers.
CAN HE COME BACK?
The next battle in which Wolgast en
gages will prove conclusively whether
he has a chance to come back and re
gain his lost crown or whether he will
go the way of the rest of the cham
pions after their first defeat. If he Is
crushed in spirit and suffers from loss
of nerve he will surely show it. If he
trains hard and faithfully and forgets
his defeat he may come on with a sur
prise and prove a winner. There la no
way of calling the turn on him until
we see him in action with a worthy op
ponent.
Mandot undoubtedly will prove a
good card here. The fact that he was
shaded by Rivers will not Interfere
much with his drawing powers, pro
vided he Is matched against a man who
Is looked upon as a llve*performer.
WE NEVER SAW HIM
. The New Orleans lightweight is one
of the very few ring stars who never
has put his dukes up before a San
Francisco crowd. All the local fans
are very keen to see him go, for he has
been highly touted.
Rivers in the meantime is doing his
theatrical turn and issuing challenges
to Ritchie as a side issue, but there is
little possibility of his getting the new
champion into the ring. Rivers prob
ably will follow Ritchie around the
vaudeville circuit and, like Ritchie, take
a flyer at the eastern game.
West Point Cadets

WEST POINT, N. V.. Pec. I—The de

home at 3:45 o'clock this afternoon,
and, notwithstanding the players' de
jection over the loss of yesterday's
game to the Navy, the cadets generally
were enthuslastlsc over the team's
work.
Five hundred of them, headed by a
band, were at the station to meet the
team and gave it a rousing cheer.
Headed by big Devore, their captain,
the players walked quietly to quarters.
They were all in splendid physical con

their defeat, declaring that the better

BUSY WEEK FOR
RING FANS ALL
OVER THE EAST
Good Bouts and Poor Bouts
on Menu; McGoorty-
Gibbons Match the
Best on List
The present week is going- to be a
busy one for the fighters In the east.
All sorts of matches are on the bill
of fare, and nearly all the classes are
included. There will also be* battles
of importance in London and Paris be
tween fighters well known to San
Franciscans.
Our old friend One Round Hogan
is going to take on an unknown lad
named Shamus O'Brien in New York
this evening. It Is billed as a 10 round
affair, but unless Hogan can show
something more than he showed against
Burns and Leach Cross, there is no
danger of it going the limit. How
Hogan ever induced a promoter to sign
him up is a mystery which must be ex
plained later on.
Tomorrow evening Johnny Kilbane,
the feather weight champion, is going
to tackle Monte Attell of San Fran
cisco in a 10 round setto in Cleveland.
Monte has been "in" for a long time,
and if the Cleveland fans stand for
such attractions they certainly don't
know much about the Queensberry
game. It probably will give Kilbane
a lot of satisfaction, anyhow, to gloat
over the fact that he has licked two
members of the Attell family—pro
viding he does lick Monte.
The most important bout of the whole
bunch is the 10 rounder between Eddie
McGoorty and Mike Gibbons in Gotham
Wednesday evening. These' men are
without doubt the best middle weights
in the business, and the winner will be
looked upon as the champion of the 158
pound division.
That prize faker and all around bad
actor, Billy Papke, is to meet a middle
weight named Bernard in Paris
Wednesday evening. This makes it very
evident that the French promoters did
not make good their threat to blacklist
the alleged "Illinois Thunderbolt." Too
bad they fell down!
Following is a list of the Important
contests of the week:
Monday—Johnny Lore vs. Young Rellly, 10
rounds at New York city; Jimmy Burns vs.
Young Schumaker. 10 rounds at Kankakee, 111.;
Joe Conway vs. Bruno Lang. 10 rounds at Cleve

PASTIMES SALVE

BEATING VAMPS
Soccer League Leaders Re
deem Themselves for
Defeat of a Week
Ago
BOB SHAND
The Pastimes redeemed themselves
yesterday for their defeat of the pre
vious Sunday, and in their game against
the "Vampires showed that they could
play an uphill game as well as the
other fellows. They won by a score
of four goals to two. The contest took
place at Freeman's park, Oakland, and
was under the auspices of the Cali
fornia Soccer league. The league lead
ers were figured to win, "but when the
despised Vampires finished up on even
terms at half time none of the fans
were willing to concede the game to
the Pastimes. However, the champions
came through the last half with a burst
of speed and were well entitled to
victory.
Smith tallied first for the Pastimes
after 15 minutes of play, and then W.
H. Jackson equalized. Llndsey and
Aitken put the score even again before
the interval. Pike and Balmaln scored
after the resting period.
At the Ocean Shore grounds the
Thistles beat the Rangers by a score
of 2 to 0, and the Barbarians beat the
Alamedas at Lincoln park, Alameda,
by a score of 2 to 0.
The San Franclscos fell before the
Burns at the St. Ignatius grounds by
a score of 3 to 0. Henderson scored
two of the goals and tHalley made the
other.
