TWELVE PAGES —SAN FRANCISCO, THURSDAY, OCTOBER 16, 1913. FEVER FATAL 10 FAMOUS ATHLETE California Shot Putter, Hero of Olympic Games, Succumbs to Two Weeks' Illness Ralph Rose, champion shot putter of the world, died this morning at 11:30 o'clock at McNutt hospital from typhoid fever, after an illness of two weeks. He was a native of Healdsburg and made his first ap pearance in the athletic world in 1903, breaking world's records in the weights ever since. He was 28 years old. Rose had been practicing law for the last four years and was a partner of Bert Cadwalader. A slight illness of a week's dura tion suddenly developed into typhoid October 1, an<Phe was taken to the hospital. He leaves a sister, who lives at 2036 Sutter street. UNMACK'S APPRECIATION OF ROSE'S GREAT WORK WILLIAM UNMACK Ralph Rose, California's native son giant, who has done more to bring the state of California before the na tions of the world as a producing cen ter of world's athletic champions, is dead. The death of the big hearted big man is an international event which will be deeply regretted in every country of the world. The death of the champion shot putter takes from this country a man who has been in the public eye for more than 10 years and for all that time has been acknowledged as a world's champion. A giant in build in every particular, Ralph was also a giant in his performances. His right hand and arm brought many a world's record to the Golden state, and his series of world's record breaking feates dates back to 1901, when he was a schoolboy at Healds burg high. WON FAME AS SCHOOLBOY Even as a schoolboy he won world recognition for himself and has been an International figure ever since. At that time he set new world's figures in both the 12 pound and 16 pound shots, and has kept ott breaking his own marks ever since, no one else being in a class with him. He holds these marks and many others today and they will stand for many years. Rose has represented his country since 1904 in Olympaids and won his events. Last year at Stockholm he lost the rlghthanded shotput to Pat McDonald of New York by inches, but came back the next day in the two handed event and won- his laurels by feet. Rose was popular with every one. His apearance in a track meet always meant a hearty welcome. He was a sportsman through and through. ALWAYS WILLING TO HELP Always willing to help a lad ac quire the art of shotputtlng, he was glad to show the knack. Even in competition he would point out his opponents 'faults at the risk of being beaten. He has done this on many occasions, and In a handicap event at Shell Mound last year his coaching of one shotputter lost the event for Rose. He took his defeat in good part and was the first to congratulate the victor. He was a good loser and an equally good winner.
