"' V.V.-..'. ft FOR MASCOT HZ HAS YOUNG PIGf) Having finished all his theatrical engagements until after his fight with Jeffries, Jack Johnson will now be gin hard training for the big mill at Ocean Beach, near San Francisco. The champion weighs 214 pounds at present and is in excellent shape to start hard work. He has laid out a strenuous schedule, which he intend to . follow closely until the big fight. Johnson has engaged Tom Flanagan, the old-time trainer of pedestrians, bicycle riders and pugilists, to look after his road work. While Flan agan will have charge of Johnson on the road, the latter has announced that "Jack Johnson" will be his train er. In speaking of having no real head at his training camp recently, Johnson said: "I have been fighting so long that I do not need to be told what to do. Of course, I will have a large staff of so-called trainers, but they will do what I Instruct them to. I am not hiring anyone to tell me how to train. Joe Gans will be in my corner when I need advice, but in the actual preparation for the bout I will follow my own system. I will box with strong men and fast fellows, do road work, eat and sleep. Mind you, 1 1 do not say that I do not need train ing. It's trainers I do not want." ; Johnson's corps of helpers at present are Joe Rogers, the 300-pound wrest ler; Joe Cotton, a colored heavy , weight and protege of Joe Choynski, and Gunboat Smith. It is more than likely that one or two more will i be added to his staff with! nthe next : few weeks.
