Wol sort's services, but he could not find
suitable opponent This sounds strange
n view of the fact that all the 130-pound
nen In Christendom are clamoring all the
wear round for a crack at Wolgast, but
t Is true nevertheless.
Knockout Brown, who Issued fifty,
jeven different kinds of challenges to
Wolgast In any ordinary month, declined
.erause of somo more pressing engage
tnent. and so did all others who were
onsidered fit mettle for the Mlchlgnn

But here Is the funny part of It All
lie time Coffroth was dickering with

he had one particular youth In mind as
the boxer best calculated to draw a bis"
.owd with Volgost This was Willie
Itltchle. a Ran Francisco product who
gave Wolgast a hard time of It hero once
In four rounds and who defeated Joe
Mandot In New Orleans.
I'rlnrlpnln In n Vtrt,
Coffroth was debarred from talking
business with Itltchle. because nltchlo't
manager and Coffroth aro tho principals
In a feud which dates back to tho Bat
lllng Nelson days and which was re
vived recently owing to a personal on
counter between the men.
Billy Nolan Is tho manager's name, lie
said repeatedly: "I will havo nothing to
do with Coffroth." He overlooked the
fact that the public did not care a contl
rental If he never, never, novefhad any
thing to do with Coffroth. What the
fight fans wanted to know was whethor
Itltchle was going to have anything to
do with Wolgast. '
Anyhpw, Coffroth tawed wood and said
little, while as for poor Ritchie, his plight
was pitiable, lie was Just aching In
svery fiber to get a crack at the cham
pion, but through feelings of loyalty to
his maanger, was constrained to hold
loof.
Then camo the Mandot-Wolgast match
nt New Orleans and then Coffroth made
ii n announcement lie raid that owing to
Ills inability to secure a suitable opponent
for Wolgast he had abandoned lUs plans
for having a Thanksgiving glove feast.
Then them was a genuine flurry In the
pugilistic Klovo cotes. Manager Nolan
lent 'hot foot to Los Angeles to meet

i deep cogitation, sought out Coffroth

They think very well of tho Itltchle-

make It of particular Interest to local

It was Ritchie who faced Wolgast In a
four-round bout In Ban Francisco when
Ad thought himself sufficiently recovered
from his operation to take up his life
work again. Now no ono cares to lay
ii)uch stress on what happened on that
occasion for the reason that Wolgast was
not himself by any means.

Next to Kansas, Minnesota proved to
bo the best money making proposition
on the Cornhusker schedule. Despite the
fact that the Gopher team was ad

It did not have a perceptible lnfluonco on

at last season.

Noblest
Jlr W. J. M'BKTJI.
NEW YORK, Nov. 23,-Jlm Thorpe of
Carlisle, will go down In athletic history
as tho "noblest red-skin of them, all."
It Is doubtful If any human being ever
combined tho manifold athletic proclivi
ties as this young "buck" of the .Fox
and Sao trlbo. By winning tho decathlon
and pentathlon In Stockholm last sum
mer, this aborigine proved America's
greatest lndlvlduul star and at the same
tlmo tho-most wonderful ' man who ever
took part In the great International nth
letlo championships slnco 'Ureeco first
established this classic in tho shadow of
Olympus.
There Is nothing relating to sport or
athletlo strife thatThorpo cannot do
and do exceptionally well. In fact, ha

at Carlisle He Is the greatest halfback
of all 'American foot ball history and
perhaps the greatest gridiron warrior
of all time. Like all good Indians,
Thorpe Is a wonder at lacrosse. Ho plays
basket ball, soccer, hockey and hand
ball equally wall.
Just now tho world Is ringing with
his gridiron prowess and at this par
ticular branch of sport ho Is worthy of
full consideration. Those who wero for
tunate enough to see Thorpe In Carl-
Isle's gamo against the Army at West
Point, saw, doubtless, tho greatest ex
hibition of Individual foot ball skill por
trayed on any gridiron. ,
I saw Captain Devore of the Army
In the drosslng room after the game. De

and probably the (Strongest man In foot

that ho muffed only when thrown hard

In this country Hit tvmrlwind speed

buttering ram that accomplished this
happy result for tho aborigines was none
other than Jim. Thorpe. Tho Army was
"laying" for Thorpe throughout the
game and Welch, the quarterback un
doubtedly "crossed" the cadets by switch
ing to Arcana, when ho did. Thorpe had
done moro than his share. West Point
gave Arcasa his chance to shine because
that team had- eyes only for tho giant,
who " had slashed through their line,
skirted their "ends and bowled irresistibly
through tho scattered field In the early
part of the1 competition.
Jim Thorpe is an ideal foot ball player.
IIo appears at 'halfback -because ho is
of greatest use at this position. Put him
on tho eleven, However, arm
.He has tho
bIio, and weight for any lino

bines eveiy quality of foot ball skill. He
Is sure at handling punts and in a class
all by himself at running them back. He
combines ' tho crushing power and ham
mering force of Brlckley with tho kicking
skill of thlB same Individual and tho punt
ing ability of Fcltori or Flynn.
Thorpe Is the most dellberato player In
tho country. Ho never becomes excited,
never loses his head. He can run Just as
fast with tho ball as without It Is a sure
tackle and Is possessed of such strength
that he can keep on, like Ted Coy, with
an army of tacklors cllngltiB to him.
Ills motive power is augmented by tho
fact that ho charges lower than any
back In foot ball. Ho Is a man of whale
bone, whose anatomy Is Impervious to
Injury; a human Ijorpcdo that plows its
way through all sorts of opposition. As
a runner In a broken field Thorpe Is in
a class all by himself. Ho, pjans his
runs v4th amazing Intelligence and fools
the tocklers by an easy lope that carries
him over tho ground at remarkable speed
without betraying any undue haste. His
dodging can bo likened to nothing better
(turn that of a rabbit close pressed by
a hound. Thorpe can stop Instantly,
twist about and start instantaneoustly.
And with him the straight arm Is a
work of beauty.
Save that his color is less pronounced
than the average Indian, Jim Thorpe Is
a typical Indian. He has the facial cast,
high cheekbones and straight Jet black
hair. His legs are long but ivcll put up,
as Is his torso, in street clothes ho up

Miller Hopes to Hold South Dakota
at least to a Low Score.
I
MUCH, DEPENDS ON TAMISEA
Opponents Hare n Heavier Team and
Have a Brilliant Record for the
Season, Having- Defeated
Mlnnenota.
Coach Miller of Crclghton Is utlllxlng
these last fow valuable days In putting on
tho rinnl touches for the big game with
South Dakota on Turkey day. He Is
determined to have his squad In the best
possible condition and predicts a closo
game. Eddlo Crelghton, who heloed coach
tho team for the game with St Louis,
is again helping CoachJMIller, confining
his attention to tho linemen.
Crelghton claims Mhat ''"Crelghton wilt
upset all dope and beat South' DakdtaV
but Coach Minerals mote reticent, stating
that he expected to hold the visitors to a
low scdre.
The absence of Miller from the Crelgh
ton lineup Is probable and every effort Is
being mado to make Simon Levey fit into
the position. Levey is showing class and
gives great promise In case tho Crelghton,
star Is unablo to get Into the game. Miller
has discarded his cane and expects to don
a suit Monday, but his teammates fear ho
will not be able to. stand the gruelling.
DitUotahn Are liertvlcr.
The South Dakotans will outweigh
Crelghton ten pounds to tho man. averag
ing 183 pounds to Crelghton's 175; They
have a brilliant record this year, having
beaten Minnesota and losing by one point
to Michigan. They are all experienced
and have practically the same team which
beat Crelghton 31 t6 3 last year. In the
buckfleld aro Shceks und Imlay, two of
the fastest bocks In the west Imlay at
full Is pronounced by Coach Miller of
Crelghton better than Holbert of Morn-'
IngMde. who was mainly responsible for
Crelghton's defeat at Sioux City this
year.
In one department at least Miller ex
pects to outshine the Dpkotans. Tamlsea
Is expected to outklclc the South Dakota
kicker, Sheeks, and to score for Crelghton
by the use of his educated boot. He was
the only one to score for Crelghton last
year, booting tho ball over the crossbars
soon after, the opening of the battle for
tho first iscore of the game.
' Crelnlitou In Good Shape.
Aside from Miller, tho Crelghton team
will bo In good shape for the game. Mc
Qrane, who was out of the Tarklo game
with a sprained -back, will play at left
guard, while Hanley Is fast recovering
from his bad Jaw. A scrimmage with
Bellevue Is expected to put the final edge
on the defensive work.
The officials for the South Dakota game
ore: Matters of Nebraska, referee; Dud
ley of Dartmouth, umpire; Lieutenant
Wilhelm of Kansas, head linesman.
Crelghton expects to score on South
Dakota, and a glance at Its record for
this year will show that it will only be
playing true to form:
Crelghton, 18; Kearney, 3.
Crelghton, 28; Yankton. 3.

NEW YORK, Nov. 23. Leading base

way i for baso ball In France, and al
ready' net-oral veterans of the American
game havo been consulted In regard to
visiting that country and teaching the
young Frenchmen the fine points' of the

It. is well known that Cubans ave
reached such a state of perfection In base
ball nnd that they chafe at not ,belng
able to take part In a set of games for
the world's chanptonshtp. If France
should develop into a base ball country
like Cuba the fans would demand an nil
liuul tournament to decide the world's
title.
Incidentally, the organization of base
ball clubs hi France would result In
Paris being a mecca for veterans who
have grown too old and too slow for the

of these men on the French teams would
be the real way for them to learn the

many tokens of a speedy change in tho
weather. That this change, when It doe3
come, will bo a cold and disagreeable ono
goes -without saying, for the long stretch
of beautiful weather Nebraska has been
favored with Justifies no other expecta
tion. .Either cold' rain or snow Just now will
bring down tha rest' of the ducks linger
ing in the north, but the chances are that
UtV will tarry here but a short time;
that Is, all but those hardy ola redleg
mallards and the few greenwlngs that
can bo driven on south only by tho
severest weather, and even this does not
always send all away. No matter , how
rigid and tight the' winter they aro al
ways to be found lingering over the
spring-fed streams, especially those that
cut through low hills, clear up to the
spring time. It Is quite probable that the
wild fowl, save these two species, have
no-, passed and are enjoying themselves
In tho Warm marshes and weedy lagoons
of the south. But summing up tho
wholo thing, thero Is little doubt but
what tho autumn hunting season on all
game, excepting cottontails, for 1912 has
run Its course. It has been a big disap
pointment in every way on chicken's
gecso and ducks, quail and Jackenlpe
alike and thoso thnt did strike a favor
ablo day may consider themselves for
tunate. But all this poor shooting must
not bo stored up against tho birds, espe
cially the water fowl, for while they were
as plentiful as ever, tKo long-drawn-out
balmy weather kept -them from c6ming
down froln the north In anything but
straggling bunches. But with the chick
ens and quail It was different There was
almost no quail and the chickens were
scarcer than ever before. The party of J.
J. Derlght, John W. Weaver. Dr. van
Camp, Lee MeGreer, Albert Cahn, Arthur
Metz and Sandy Grtswold, who spent
week before last at Charlie Metz's famous
ranch up In Cherry county, met with only
Indifferent success in a shooting -way,
but, of courses had a great time. In all
they bagged 150 ducks and a couple of
dozen grouse.
Bill and Paul Hoagland Indulged in
their wlndup shoot of tho season near
Norfolk last week. They were out flv
d&ys and killed fifty some quail and two
or three dozen chickens.
Clem Langley, tho genial proprietor of
the Langley hunting lodge, up on Enders
lake, south of Ainsworth, was down yes
terday on a visit to Mrs. Langley, who is
an Inmate of the Wise Memorial hos

lmen of .the hooded mcrganzor, a bird
ho kilted on his Ioko lost "Tuesday, and
It is pronounced by Judges .of such things
as tho most perfect and beautiful. hooded
merganzer ever secured In Nebraska
waters. It had all tho markings and
irtdlsccnt colors of the wood duck and
Mr: Langley was of tha opinion that It
was a hybrid, a cross of these two rare
birds. While the different species of the
merganzer are common on Nebraska
waters the hooded merganzer is but in
frequently seen and less oftener bagged.
Mr. Langley also told of his efforts to
secure a perfectly white spoonbill he saw
In a small bunch the soma day. He got
within seventy-flvo or eighty yaxds of it
several times, but It was too wild to
permit him to get within range. Ho
chased the Uttlo flock almost all day
from ono end of tho lake to tho other
but along toward evening they' arose
high in the air and with the albino in the
lead bore away out of the country.
Jim M. Glllan, manager of the Audi.,
torlum and a ravenous duck hunter, was
out at Hershborger's camp on tho .Platte,
near Schuyler, a- few days this week and
reports a fair lot of sport on late mal
lards. The day before J. M. got there tha
Hershbergers killed five Canada geese,

ing. President Taft. it is noted through tho
telegraph, has added nearly 1,000 acres
to the game preserve sanctuary and
breeding grounds up at old Fort Niobrara.
That this is going to be. one of the
greatest grounds for the rearing of chick
ens and quail there Is In the country,
there Is now but little doubt.
H. K. Fredrlckson returned home Fri
day from his Wyoming hunt with two elk
and' an abundance of enthusiasm over
big game shooting. In Bplte of the fact
that all of tho hunting was done In two
feet of snow, along tvth other diffi
culties, Fredrlckson Is strong for it. The
two elk he shot were a cow and a well
grown calf. Fred Is only sorry he could
not have made the trip in September,
whep It was likely he might have se
rured a buck- but at this time of tho
year the bucks leavo tho herds and travel
into Inaccessible hnowy regions.
