TIIKIvK I now. in polite sporting
circles, the rase of one Joseph
btroher. of Dodge City. N"cb.. and on
Frank Ootch. of Iowa, and the extend
ed son maintained by anj first-class
.Sooner or later or In the Interim
these two, Joseph ami Frank. Western
born and bred, are lo meet in a wrea
lllng match that will deride the cham
pionship of th world and will attract
something over ltoo.000 at the gat.
Ho, aa a sporting siwetacle. It Is worth
e e e
Tae rase of Frank Cwtra.
W first saw Frank Gotch wrestle
back In lo4ll years ago. He waa
then 21 vcars old. tha American cham
plon. with only Haekenschmldt In hla
way to a world title.
Gotch al 37 and ntecher at IJ stand
aa entirely .llfferent types. Meehera
fac a almost expressionless. What
ever emotion may dwell In hi manly
breaat. the same doesn't ahow throngs
Ms frontispiece. II give one th Im
pression of being a wonderfully per
fected machine. .
Gotch was. and Is. a different type.
Gotch Is the IVw Jekyll and Mr. Hyde
of wrestlers. With a Pleasing, open
face, an attractive smile, a bundle of
magnetism, he might b figured as the
bt-natured man In the game. But Ma
hesrt I the heart of the Jungle. No
limit of cruelty would ever stop him
from beating his man the quickest pos
sible way. Kid McCoy, smlllncly cut
ling an opponent to ribbons, had noth
ing on the Iowa grappler.
Age haa undoubtedly slowed Ootch
up and baa taken something away, but
even If iMecher hould win he would
be quite willing to testify that It waa
th roughest evening of his young but
spicy career. Gotch asks no mercy
and gives none not even to the beaten.
Th old Mpanlsh Inqulsltloo could have
gathered In some valuable stuff by
watching Gotch at work.
la tb Way of apeed.
Fterher at 31 may be soma faster than
Ootch I at J. Hut rilecher at 33 lsnt
a fast aa Gotch was at 37. H Isn't
as fast aa Gotch waa years ago at S3
th last tim wa saw him work.
For wbll ritecher is abnormally fast,
a marvel with hi quick leg movement
and hi shifting body. Gotch some
like that It was almost Impossible to
follow bis movemrn t sun m -stw
hira shift from on spot or from
on grip lo anothor. and yet th move
ment waa mor a blur than an actual
. t . -. . .htrt of such ra-
pldlty that few could tell Just what
Th Catch lag red lea la,
Gotch carried these mala Ingredients:
I'fiueual speed, great physical power
bciih In his arm and legs, a high order
or nunii and cunning, uniimuea
stamina, complet knowledge of hi
gam through hard and Intelligent
For Gotch haa as much brain as h
has muscH. ao far as hi game Is con
cerned, anyway, and ha has alwaya
been bleaeed with an athletic Instinct
that only belong to the champion.
. i . - -..!. n T.ion for tha
first tlma ha aoon saw that hero wa
an opponent too powerful to b thrown,
for Haekenschmldt waa the most pow
erful entry of the entire lot. tyo Ootch
switched hta tactlca and literally tor
tured his man Into aubmlaslon. aa tha
big Itusslan quit after two hour" pun
l.bmrnt. la Uteehrr'e Faver.
If ftecher had coma along 10 year
ago. Just sa good aa ha la today, wa
would have esteemed It much pleasure
to have had our last shirt on Iowa
against Nebraska In tha wrestling
But 104 and 11 ar a decade apart.
In meeting fctecher. Gotch will face,
the best man ha ever met- Ha will
tackle a game, brainy youngster who
knows hla business. He will tackle a
man who haa beaten most of the best
one who ha both speed and power to
a champion s degree.
Judging from what those say who
hav wrestled Btecher. who have seen
him work and what he had to show
against the masked marvel, tha Nebraa-
kan la well worthy of th throne. He
haa all the atuft there Is.
A aether Factor.
And then, again, there la the main
factor of them all to be considered,
e-techer Is 23: Gotch la . Stecher Is
coming: Gotch 4s going away. Ootch
has ruled unbeaten for over 10 years.
And 10 yeara la a long time at th top
of the pile. ,
ttnc Time la the greatest collector of
them alL He Insists on being paid to
the full kopeck. Gotch will have to
.give away IS yeara and 15 years cov
ers tha pitching span of Mathewson.
Fifteen yeara can atand as no small
gift. Gotch may look to b as fast, aa
strong, aa mighty aa b ever was.
He may for the first 30 minutes. But
what about the end of a championship
hour, or two hours, of the hardest
gam of them allT
a a a
It was agreed that Johnson must
whip Wlllard in the first 15 rounds to
win. Ha waa not abl to produce th
punch Inside of SO round, and Tim
did th rest.
Gotch to beat Stecher must overpow
er hla man Inside of 20 or 30 minutes.
For 30 minutes he will be aa fast and
as strong as Stecher probably strong
er. And he will hav greater mat
craft and cunning, for In thla respect
th low star has never had an equal.
There 1 no trick that he doesn't know,
and many of them are hla own Inven
tions. For 30 mtnutea Stecher. at IJ.
will b In th whirl of a tornado. If h
can weather that period the odda.
backed up by youth, will be all hla way.
Ootch isn't going to get any better the
second 30 miautea or the second hour.
He Is a marvel and a superman, but
not that much of a god. Ha must carry
tn young Nebraskan by torm. com
bining power and speed with th
craft and cruelty he haa and don t for
get that of this he baa more than one
a a a
Those who have eeen both Ootch and
Stecher at work can Imagine no greater
athletic sight thsn a meeting between
these two. You may not bav any In
herent loJ for wrestling. Th aport
to you may be an abhorrent thing. But
here wltl be a meeting that should be
the Inst word as a physical test. Th
mere sight of Stecher and Gotch stand

For. whatever o think of their game,
they are men above the ordinary typ

gnmn of them all. where only one can
survive as champion.
Wrestling Is almost a blacklisted
sport. It has no wldo appeal. But on
the day that Frank uotcn. oi
