PULLMAN; LI GOSSIP HARVEY DICKEY, former star quarterback for the Spokane high school, will leave Spokane on September 21 for the state college at Pullman, Wash. Although several colleges through out the northwest have been trying to secure Dickey for some time, he has at last announced his intention of attending the state college this fall. Dickey will undoubtedly make the position of quarterback on the varsity without auy trouble, as he is one of the best quarterbacks in the northwest. He was captain of the Spokane high school football team In 1907 when they won the Interscholastic champion thip of the Pacific northwest. Coach W T . S. Kienholz of the state college football team may con sider himself fortunate in securing Dickey, as the college needs a good quarterback this fall. Immediately on arriving at the state college Dickey will don the mole skins and turn out for practice with the football squad. Following close upon the announcement of Dickey that he will go to Pullman this fall, Wesley Englehorn, star tackle of the South Central high school for the last three years, states that he will attend the University of Washington at Seattle this fail, where he will try out for his old line position of right tackle on the University of Washington's football team this season. Englehorn is one of the best linemen that the South Central high school ever had. and his friends need not be surprised if they hear of him doing things over in Seattle. At the present time he is In Idaho, but will return to Spokane in time to go to the University before school opens. * * * * - In a 10-round go at San Francisco yesterday afternoon Jactt Johnson, the colored heavyweight champion of the world, success fully defended his right to hold the championship when he badly used np Al Kaufman in 10 rounds. Although no public decision was given, Johnson had the better of the fight all the way through, and if it had extended five more rounds it is probable that he would have landed a knockout punch on Kaufman. * * • * The South Central high school football squad is practicing at Manito park. About 40 candidates for the team turned out yester day afternoon after school and were put through some preliminary work, it will require a great deal more time this year to get the men In shape than it has in the past, as the squad is composed wholly of new material.

THE SPOKANE PRESS, SEPTEMBER 1909 FOUGHT LAST BATTLE WITH $50,000 IN JEANS SAN DIEGO, Cal., Sept. 10.—One last, terrific, right-hand hook that rocked his antagonist like a ship on a stormy sea, the clang of the gong proclaiming the finish of a whirlwind 20-round mill, the ref- "FIGHTING DICK" GIVINS | :ree's popular decision of a "beau- 1 iful draw" —and "Fighting Dick" livens, the heir to a fortune, had ought his last ring battle. When Givens' seconds pulled off he bloody gloves and smoothed sack the towsled hair, the youth 'ul Irish middleweight who has ought himself into prominence iretty WtU up and down the Cali fornia coast, smiled in answer to the cheers from thousands of throats and announced his retire ment from the ring. Givens doesn't have to fight for i living. He has inherited landed estates in County Claire, Ireland, valued at $50,000. The fortune was willed to him by his grandfath er, Richard Givens, sr., who had alwuys been proud as a peacock ot his pugilistic grandson. "Why should I fight again?" asked Fighting Dick. "What's the use?" And no one could argue that there was any use and none couid gainsay the handsome Irishman the right to depart for the land of the Shamrock to settle down on his lands and live the life of an' Irish gentleman. There Givens will go just so soon as he can settle up his affairs on this side of the pond. Givens went to bed the night before his 20-round argument with Frank Fields as poor as a church mouse. He awoke in the morning to find a telegraph boy at the door bearing the glad tidings that he had fallen heir to a fortune. Giv ens thought of calling off his fight with Fields, but even riches could not take the fight out of this boy. All day long he kept pinching his well muscled body to see if he couldn't wake up. That night he went into the ring and fought the greatest fight of his career —he wanted to quit with his record clean and with a right to keep the cognomen of "Fighting Dick."
