THE OMAHA SUNDAY BEE: APRIL 1, 1917.
2 S Judgments LES DARCY is now willing yea, even anxious arid eager to demonstrate to the box fight fans of the United States the fistic prowess over which Aus tralia went completely nutty. Lester has made it known that he win in the future turn an attentive ear and give due consideration to all offers made him ry western ana soutnern hoxinff clubs. Lester's sudden de cision to cease keeping his talents a secret need occasion no surprise, it follows in logical sequence the ban placed upon him by the governor of new York. Quotations on Les Darcy in New York are aoout tne same as on the czar in Petrograd. -The Aus tralian made a very messy muss of matters in New York. The west and south alone remain as prospective fields. H-he is refused permission to fight in these locations, the recruiting office alone remains. Minnesota and Wisconsin boxing commissions are giving Lester some time and thought. Darcy's suspension by the governor of New York, while perhaps deserved although if slackers are to be barred Darcy shouldn't stand alone by any means has all the ear marks of a crafty political move and it is prob able that if nothing more than this banishment can be found against Les he will he granted full permission to accept $25,000 or $30,000 for stepping thirty minutes with some ham mauler who owns a haymaker that might land on a paralytic, and a glass jaw. The clamping down of the lid on all amusements in Iowa on Sunday through the state "blue laws" may prove serious to the Western league. Sunday is the big day in every city in the league. It is, in fact, about the only day in the week that large crowds turn out to witness the dia mond clashes in the Zehrung loop and the existence of every club in the league practically depends upon its Sunday attendance. Each club, for instance, draws ten Sunday dates at home. An average attendance probably would be 3,000 a game un less some city is so unfortunate as to lose several Sundays through bad weather, in which case the average would be lower. This means 30,000 persons and the total attendance of all other games during the year will not greatly exceed this number, if at all. If. Sioux City and Dei Moines are prevented from playing Sunday ball, neither club is likely to last long. They can't afford to lose 30,000 admissions. The very existence of the Western league is likely to be threatened unless these clubs are allowed to play on Sunday, A five-year contract at $50,000 a year is the choice plum John McGraw has plucked from base ball. John should be grateful to the grand old game. But McGraw, if anybody in base ball is worth $50,000 a year, is the man. McGraw ia a good man ager. He knows base ball from the ground up and he instills the fighting spirit in his players. He seldom over looks a bet. McGraw will hang onto a young player who shows promise loimer than any other manager in the big leagues, Ferdie Schupp is a strik ing exaniole of this. And bv so clina- iK";jnj( to the youngsters McGraw helps to butif pase Dan up. A ciud man aged 6jf VcGraw will land In the position in the'percentage column its ability and skill justified and it may even land a notch or two higher. In addition, McGraw ia a drawing card. Almost a firebrand on the field, the fans like to see him in action, He'll almost draw his salary through the gate in a season. Fifty thousand dol lars a year is a lot of money, but McGraw, if anybody, is worth it. After giving the western clubs of the National league the visual for ward and back one wonders if it will be possible for any one of them to land in the first division, and then decides probably it will not be. The Chicago Cubs look to be the weakest of the four. The infield is woefully weak, the catching staff ia poor, the outfield only has Cy Williams and the pitching staff is nothing to brag about. Unless Fred Mitchell turns out to be a miracle man or some new talent is obtained, the Cubs appear to be the poorest club in the two big leagues. . Pittsburgh wilt depend largely upon recruits. If several stars ere uncovered, the Pirates might, of course, leap toward the top, but if the rookies fail to deliver, Dreyfus.' hands are carded for the toboggan. The St Louis Cards are far from strong, and Cincinnati doesn't seem to contain much class. It'll be an unset if the four eastern clubs In the National don't hold the pennant race an oy tnemseives.

NEW MEN PROMISE MUCH Despite the fact that he only has three veterans left from the cham pionship track team of last year, Coach Mulligan of Central High is still optimistic and predicts a well balanced squad to represent Omaha in the Missouri valley and state meets, the former to be held on the Creigh ton field May 26, the latter May 12 at Lincoln. "Turk" Logan, "Chuck" Morearty and Floyd Paynter compose the "big three" who will be depended upon to score the first places. Logan is cap tain of the team this year, and, al though Central High is competing with the state militia for his services, he is counted upon to take part in the meets. He is a good man at the quarter and half and running high and running broad jumps. Morearty is well known for bis ability to come in ahead of the field in the 220-yard dash. ne is not at an slow at tne luu-yard sprint, but shows to better ability at the longer distance. He also holds a state record in the running broad jump and shows to good advantage in the high jump. This is the last sea son for Morearty under the high school colors and Coach Mulligan is predicting a record year for him. Turner Is Eligible. Howard Turner is exnected to smash a few high school records in tne running high jump this season. Last spring Turner was ineliarible ta compete in interscholastic athletics, uui mis uiu not stop mm trom raising the high pump record for interclass contests several inches. He has a peculiar adoption of the straia-ht form and makes leaps that surprise veteran trackmen. Paul Konecky, Nicholas Mayne, Gene Maxwell and Merritt Kleoser have anme ahtlitv at th dashes and should help to round out a good squad. Reggie Deems, who has shown abil ity in grade school athletics and was a point-getter in the recent Community Center meet, looks good for the dashes. This is his first year at high school. Art Logan, a younger brother of "Turk," also in his freshman year, is being taught to handle the and discus. He was elected captain of the freshman track squad. Dave uuic is anotner tresnman who should show up well in the weights. Robert Downs. caDtain of the annnn. mores, is the only veteran pole vaulter ocit. utner men will be tried out in this event, though, as soon as the holidays are over. Dick Giller is ex perienced in the middle distance runs, making a good showing in the inter class meet last year. Besides the ath. letes mentioned, many other of ability will turn out after vacation and will parti:ipate in the interclass event. No eligibility- requirements are necessary for participation in this meet.

Umplrea: Hart and Tannehlll, Londos and Pesek To Meet in Finish Match at Shelton Shelton, Neb., will be the scene on Wednesday night of a wrestling match that promises to be a corker. Jim Londos, the Greek grappler. who has been making Omaha his headquarters for the last six months, will clash with John Pesek, the Buf falo county favorite, in a finish match for a $500 side bet and a 75-25 split of the gate receipts. Londos and Pesek met for the first time in the semiwindup to the Joe Stecher-Charley Peters match in Omaha in February. They went twen ty minutes without a fall. The twenty minutes was replete with some of the iastest wrestling ever seen in Oma ha. Both, after this tilt, expressed confidence in their superiority, and after much wrangling the match was finally arranged for Shelton, Pesek's home, for next Wednesday night. The match- will be a blood affair and it promises to result in one of the warmest matches this state has ever seen. Omaha mat fans are backing the Greek, while Buffalo county fans are just as eager to back Pesek.

One of the rookies near by yelled back: "Ain't there a rule book in this state?" Owen Daily Accepts Challenge of Fisher Hastings, Neb., March 31. (Spe cial Telegram.)

He recently made a wager that he will win at least eighteen games, Cabinet Style Phonograph DAILY BOXING REFORMS ARE NOWjtl ORDER Limiting Fighters' Receipts to $5,000 is Suggested as Good Move. TOO MANY MONEY BOXERS New York, March 3i. Now that the ring game is on its last legs, box ing reforms are in order, although it probably is too late to save the sport here. Other boxing centers, however, have taken warning and are planning to avoid the mistakes made in Mew York. Out in Wisconsin the boxing solons are considering a plan to limit guarantees to $500 in order to force the boxers to accept a percentage of the gate receipts instead of holding up the promoters for absurdly high amounts. It might be a good plan to go even further and limit the amount of the boxer's share of the receipts to $5,000. That would go a long way toward eliminating the boxers who are in the game for revenue only and leave those who are born fighters. There are very few of that type left in the ring today. Not one of the present set of champions cares anything for the honor of being cham pion. They value their titles only be cause they are a big nnancial asset. Jess Willard, the gigantic farmer who holds the heavyweight title, un doubtedly is the least warlike of all the men who have filled that position. Willard frankly admits that he dis likes the sport and that he never would have donned boxing gloves if he could have made money in any way. It is not likely that Willard ever will fight again, but will con tinue to exploit the title as a circus performer, although he no longer is a fighting man. Fred Fulton, the leading contender, looks upon the game exactly as Wil lard does. Hp, too, has very little pugnacity in his system and would rather follow any other line than the fighting game if it were not for the fact that he can get rich quick by boxing instead of laboring all his life at the plastering trade. If Fulton does win the title there is no reason to think he will be any more anxious to defend it in the ring than Willard is at present., Mike Gibbons would be a great fighter if he were not money mad and afraid to take a chance lest a knock out punch should find a way through his guard and so interfere with his revenue. Gibbons makes no pretense of having any liking for boxing as a sport. He is not aggressive by na ture and .would rather follow some more peaceful pursuit. Freddie Welsh has less fighting blood in his makeup than any of the lightweight champions who preceded him. Welsh is only amused when the spectators jeer him on account of a particularly raw piece of stalling. A small house is the only thing that can hurt his feelings, because he takes no pride in being champion and he cares nothing about what the public thinks of him and his fighting meth ods as long as it pays at the gate. Welsh developed the jab and grab style of boxing which has become so popular with' modern glovesters. The great lightweights of other day9 scorned to save themselves by clinch ing. They depended upon their skill at evading blows by a turn of the head or a slight movement of the feet; by blocking or beating their opponent to the punch. Often a score or more of blows would be exchanged before a clinch would check the action. Johnny Kilbane undoubtedly has enough science and ring generalship , Health, r.tt Md V J IM?
